Rehearsal Dinner At The Venue
Working with The Venue was THE MOST FABULOUS experience! The venue, food, and service were excellent. I had to cancel our rehearsal dinner at the last minute at another restaurant due to restrictions and Marta and Amanda were so accommodating. Their facility was beautiful, food was spectacular, and our guests are still talking about it! I would use them again in a heartbeat!Sent on 09/02/2020

We found The Venue to be the perfect place for a wedding reception. Convenient location, EXCELLENT food, beautiful facilities, and extraordinary communication and professionalism. Amanda handled our requests and rescheduled reception without a hitch and with complete attention to every detail.

Highly recommend to anyone looking for the right place for a perfect eventSent on 12/12/2020

It means so much to know that we were able to help make the overall experience an easy and memorable one. We know this has been a very weird and difficult year for everyone, so we greatly appreciate the recognition of our flexibility, level of cooperation in rescheduling the event date, and our tending to every detail. Thank you again for the rave review!

Best in the business!!
We had a Welcome Party for my daughter's wedding at The Venue in July. Deandra was fantastic to work with. She walked us through it and everything came together so beautifully. The setting is gorgeous with the exposed brick, beams, candles, and lights. We also received so many compliments on the food. I cannot thank the staff enough for making such a memorable evening for our guests. I would highly, highly recommend The Venue for any wedding event.Sent on 11/04/2020

Team of The Venue
In The Words Of Marta's Management Team:
We like to call her our fearless leader! She is the definition of a team leader. A fireball mix of passion and creativity mixed with resiliance and drive, sprinkled with heart and talent that are galxey sized. We asked Marta so give us some facts so you can get to know her like we do!

In The Words of Her Fellow Management Team:
Amanda...what a GEM!! She has been a part of our team for 7 years now and we couldn't imagine a day without her. The glue to our wonderful Venue family and we've never met someone as organized, kind, calm, and absolutely brillant as her. Basically a warm hug! We asked her to share a few facts so you can get to know her like we do!

SOULFUL. She's been a part of this magic making team for 6 years now, and is the light in every room. A natural born leader and dreamer with a big personality who celebrates every little thing. We asked her to give us a few facts so you can get to know her like we do!
My best friend (who was also a client of mine) had her rehearsal dinner here. Everything was wonderful! Being her MOH and hair/makeup artist I needed to make sure everything went off without a hitch and it did. Everything was perfectly decorated and food was amazing. The staff was very helpful any time we needed anything. The location for this venue is perfect too! You will not be disappointed!
A great place. every need is met and so very beautiful.
