    Gorgeous Venue

    This review is for Candi and her team for the exceptional service on our big day and days leading up to it in March of 2019. From the moment we meet and toured the Terrace Room we were in great hands. Candi was very prompt and patient with us and in answering all our questions and concerns and in planning a wedding you know there were many! Our big day couldn't have been more perfect as a bride I can honestly say I had zero worries, everything was perfect from the food down to the end of the night. This venue and Candi's team is amazing and it was a pleasure working with them all. Thank you all for our perfect wedding! We will be back to celebrate our 1st yr anniversary, every one there after.

    Great venue!

    The Terrace Room is a gem in the heart of Oakland that was the perfect venue for our wedding. The food was delicious (we chose the buffet option), the service was great (Candi Zamora, the coordinator was such a pleasure to work with!), and the location was the best part. Beautiful during both the day and night, the view of Lake Merritt was stunning through the big windows and added a unique touch to the restaurant. I also loved how the interior design and steel frames in the dining area added a hint of nostalgia.

    It was the perfect venue for a party of 150 guests. It felt small enough to feel close with everyone, but still big enough where our guests did not feel cramped.

    Candi the event coordinator was an absolute pleasure to work with. With always a gracious smile and positive attitude she was responsive, diligent, and accommodating to our requests.
