    Reception Venue

    Overall we are very pleased with MODA. The culinary professionals and coordinators were outstanding. Our wedding reception flowed effortlessly and the food, decor, and vibes were spot on (elegant, classy). Colleen is a joy to work with! One of the rooms my MOA stayed in had a few malfunctions, phone not working and no robes available but these are minor things. Otherwise, 10/10 experience. What a historically classy and graceful venue!

    Beautiful Place for a Reception

    The venue was the perfect setting for our wedding of just under 100 guests. It was intimate but the tables weren't on top of each other. Having the cocktail hour outside on the terrace was absolutely beautiful. The butlers serving wine and appetizers was a nice touch. The food was outstanding and the dessert table display was phenomenal. The menu had a variety of options including Buffalo favorites & twists on classic comfort food. The Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Tomato Soup Shooters was a crowd favorite. The staff and the coordinators that we worked with were wonderful. They were responsive to our requests and emails were answered in a timely fashion. I would definitely recommend this venue.

    Everything was absolutely perfect from start to finish. From the first meeting to any email leading up to the event was professional and prompt. Jamie was amazing as serving as our day of coordinator. Everything was set up and handled the day of so I didn't have to stress a bit. The food was also excellent, everyone had a clear plate!
