I don't even know where to start with how incredible working with World Cafe Live was! We had both our rehearsal dinner and wedding at WCL and everything from the food to the service was top notch. Maureen is a superhero and goes above and beyond in delivering the perfect day (with a broken foot, no less!!). She was always ready to hear my suggestions and quick to rectify any issues we ran into. She is super organized, very attentive and her staff was amazing! Mike, Rob and Turk made sure all our sound and lighting needs were met and exceeded. Kristen and her servers/bartenders made sure all our guests were well fed and had a drink in their hands (including my husband and me!) and were so polite and attentive.
We really wanted a special and unique day, different from the run-of-the-mill wedding and World Cafe Live definitely delivered. Our guests haven't stopped talking about how delicious the food was and how much they enjoyed our ceremony and reception.
I can't say enough positive things about this venue and the people who run it!

If you're undecided about whether or not to book at WCL, email Sarah and she can give you an idea of the menus they have and the pricing options. WCL has two areas for events, upstairs for smaller events and downstairs for larger events. I was amazed at how Sarah was able to customize our wedding to be exactly what we wanted and at the price we wanted too! If you're looking for a unique venue, this is the place to go! They have an extensive catering menu, from BBQ to plated dinners so you can be sure you'll find something you like. With the WCL rental, you also get the production crew to do lighting and sound, which was a great perk for us! On the day of the wedding, the staff took great care of us and our guests. I got a lot of compliments about the food and venue so if you're on the fence about this venue, email Sarah or go and check it out yourself, it is definitely worth it!!
