Amazing Experience at Sitti for Daughter's Wedding Reception
We had our daughter's wedding reception at Sitti and it was one of the best decisions we made! Devan and Jessica were fabulous and the entire evening went without a hitch! The staff was incredible and I can't say enough good things about the entire event. From the moment we sat down with Devan to plan the evening, we knew we were in good hands! A shout out to Johnny Knight the photographer (another recommendation from Devan) who was fabulous! He was a joy to work with and really connected with the bride and groom and everyone who attended. . .his photos were amazing! Thank you again for wonderful memories!!!Sent on 04/07/2020
Jiddi Space & Courtyard's reply:Thank you Ann! It was our pleasure, and it sure was a beautiful event. We are so happy you enjoyed yourselves. Look forward to seeing you again soon. ♥

Amazing experience from booking to wedding day!
I can't say enough good things about booking the Jiddi Space for my wedding reception. From day 1, which I booked about a year in advance, the event coordinator Devan was extremely helpful and responsive. They thought of every last detail so I didn't have to! I love this venue because it's all inclusive. All you have to bring is entertainment and any decor you want and you're going to have a fantastic night. All my guests raved about how much fun they had, and it's all thanks to the team at Sitti/Jiddi that made it happen. I'm so glad I chose to have my wedding reception here.Sent on 10/21/2019
Jiddi Space & Courtyard's reply:We are so happy you chose us to celebrate your big day! Glad we made it an easy planning process so you can enjoy. These pictures are beautiful. 💗

Perfect in every way for our wedding!
Literally everything couldn’t have been better!! From the planning to the day of, Devan and the team with the Jiddi Space made our special day absolutely perfect. I highly recommend this space and experience to everyone.Sent on 11/10/2019

A perfect wedding venue!
We were married at Jiddi in October and could not be more thrilled with the entire experience. Devan was so easy to work and she was always so quick to get back to me via e-mail or phone, even when I sent her a dozen questions! She reassured me throughout the entire process and made sure that our actual event was nothing short of perfect. She even got back to me via e-mail on her day off when I realized the next day that I had left our leftover cupcakes in the space!
And as for the space - you could not ask for a prettier venue in downtown Raleigh. We had so many guests come up to tell us that they couldn't believe how beautiful it was and that they'd never known the courtyard was there, despite eating at Gravy and/or Sitti for years. We used Sitti for our wedding food (and Gravy's Wine Cellar for our rehearsal dinner) and we had so many people tell us that the food from Sitti was the best wedding food they'd ever eaten. I am a vegetarian and my fellow vegetarian/vegan friends could not believe how many options they had throughout the night. We could not have asked for a better experience!Sent on 10/30/2019
Jiddi Space & Courtyard's reply:Thanks Amy, it was a pleasure working with you! Our team had a blast helping you celebrate and felt the positive energy from your friends and family. I am thrilled you were able to collect all your yummy cupcakes the next day, they sure looked good! ♥

Wow! The Jiddi team was just incredible!
The Jiddi Space and Courtyard had space on short notice and they proved how flexible and awesome they could be with just two weeks to prepare. The food and bar was outstanding and the staff incredibly friendly and helpful. We had such a relaxed atmosphere with our friends and family all their to celebrate our big day. We can't say enough good things about our entire experience!Sent on 09/25/2019
Jiddi Space & Courtyard's reply:Yay! Thanks, Jen!! We had a blast celebrating with you, and loved your creativity with the ceremony spot. Thanks for being so wonderful!

Amazing! Food and Venue
The food, the space, where do I even start? We had around 110 guests, all of the recommended vendors we used were just amazing to work with, the food was RAVED about (I wish I could have gotten to eat more!) everyone was great to work with. The servers were so wonderful throughout the entire night. The space is so great you really don’t need that much in terms of decor, we just did tons of flowers and candles and it looked lovely. Absolutely would recommend!!Sent on 09/25/2019
Jiddi Space & Courtyard's reply:Thanks Kathleen, we really enjoyed hosting your wedding! Such a fun day for us here at Sitti. The past year in planning all came together beautifully.

The Jiddi Courtyard
This space was perfect for our Rehearsal Dinner! It is a beautiful location and the food was amazing. Devan was a great communicator and was very helpful in making sure this event was a success. Would definitely recommend this space for an event!Sent on 11/17/2018

10/13/18 Wedding--5 stars across the board.
Finding this venue and having our wedding here was a great example of God always provides. And its always BETTER than we could have imagined. We had an Oct 13, 2018 date and our first venue cancelled our date on us 6 months before our wedding. We were horrified. I remember going to a business event at the Jiddi Space and called them and initially they were booked. I remember thinking it would be so beautiful to get married in downtown Raleigh and I was bummed. Literally 2 days later, Devan calls me and tells me that their Oct 13 booking cancelled and we could have the date. It was such an amazing venue and I wish we had booked from the very beginning. The responsiveness was excellent. I planned this entire wedding out of state (CT to NC) and didn't get to meet Devan until two days before b/c of weather delays. She was amazing. The venue is also excellent being downtown, convenient for guests with parking, and lovely in an industrial/rustic way. Our guests loved the food and the service. The space was plenty for a little over 100 guests. Our decor blended beautifully with the venue and the whole night was just so much fun. Really the value put me at ease. You have to pick between Sitti and Gravy but both are so great that I feel lucky we got Sitti catering. So much is included with the space and we were able to stay on our budget and just have the best time. I'm so glad to that for future anniversaries I can eat what I had on my wedding night (I unfortunately didn't get to eat much but brides never do).Sent on 10/25/2018

Best of Both Worlds
I wanted a night time outdoor wedding and I was able to have it here with no worries. We had both an indoor and outdoor space. The space was beautiful and the staff was great. The food was awesome. Thanks for everything.Sent on 10/16/2018

We held our sons rehearsal dinner at Sitti during the hurricane weekend so you can imagine our stress, Devan and her team were amazing! She always answered when i tried to contact her and went above and beyond to do anything. She was flexible up until the moment of the event and the venue didn't disappoint. The food was amazing and people are still talking about it back in Michigan. I worked with Devan from Michigan and she was awesome. This will be the first place I go for dinner next time I'm back in Raleigh. Thank you Devan and Sitti staff for all you did!!Sent on 09/19/2018

We had our beautiful wedding in the Jiddi Space on August 25. It was perfect. The room was a great size for our 70 guest, dinner and dancing! The lights gave off a romantic feeling, the staff was amazing and on top of everything all night. The food from Gravy was so delicious and everyone talked about it all night. Devan was very helpful and was so easy to work with. I highly recommend the space to any bride!

We hosted a rehearsal dinner in the Jiddi space for 55 people. It was easy to plan the event with the staff at Sitti. I never had any issues communicating with the event planners. It was the perfect space for our group and allowed for a cocktail hour into a delicious dinner. As usual, the food from Sitti was on point. Highly recommend for your next event.Sent on 08/31/2018
Shari · Married on 06/17/2018
We had our son's rehearsal dinner in the Jiddi room, and could NOT be happier with our experience! The food from Sitti was beautiful, plentiful, and delicious! The servers were so kind and attentive, and did everything wonderfully. Our evening was timed perfectly, and executed exactly as we had requested and planned, down to every last detail. The planning phase leading up to the night of our dinner was delightful, and everyone was so nice to work with. We will cherish memories of this special evening for years to come, and are so glad we decided to have our event here!Sent on 06/29/2018

We are extremely pleased we chose the Jiddi Space and Courtyard for our wedding ceremony and reception. The space is gorgeous, the service excellent, and the food amazing! Not to mention the value! The pricing is incredibly reasonable. Devan, their event coordinator, was great to work with. I really appreciated her prompt communication. When our big day arrived, everything was flawless. Their staff really took care of all our guests, we did not have to think about a thing but enjoying the day. Thank you, Jiddi Space team!!Sent on 07/07/2018

Devan Leicht and the Empire Eats team were fantastic to work with! We hosted our rehearsal dinner at the Jiddi space, and had it catered from Gravy.Sent on 06/19/2018
Jiddi was one of the few spots in downtown Raleigh that could accommodate a group of our size (50+ people) without planning what would basically be a second wedding. We were so relieved when we found this awesome and affordable venue!
Working with Devan was so easy, and during the almost year and a half between when we booked the space and when our event actually took place, Devan was there to answer all our questions.
On the day of our event, the staff were so helpful and friendly. They even helped us break down our decorations post-event so we could enjoy.
And the food. SO good. From appetizers to dessert, our guests raved over how wonderful their meals were. I still dream about the Risotto Balls!
Thank you Devan and Jiddi team for a perfect event!
Lilly · Married on 05/26/2018
We had a mess up with the number of people attending, resulting in not having seating fo 3 people who were coming late - we told them about it and walked away. Next thing I know, they have a small table with 3 chairs discretely set where they would not disturb anyone. Beautifully done!Sent on 06/10/2018
Bonni · Married on 05/05/2018
I loved everything about this space for our wedding! We had both our ceremony and reception here. The value is great. The food is great. They do so much at the site that I was not a super stressed bride. Amy was awesome to work with in helping us set up what we wanted and she worked with some of the vendors that were coming. Everyone raved about the food. We had about 130 guests and it was a great space for that many people. I can't say enough how great it was to work with Sitti!!Sent on 05/21/2018

We were very fortunate to have Devan Leicht as the event coordinator. Throughout the entire process, which started in August of 2017, Devan was very thorough, making sure we had the necessary information not only relating to the services at Gravy, but also providing recommendations for outside vendors and answering numerous questions – some while she was on maternity leave! Devan’s warm personality as well as her professionalism made for a remarkable experience. She is an asset to Empire Eats.Sent on 04/20/2018
The other staff were also experienced professionals. Our sincere thanks for a team that delivered a quality customer experience.

We are so happy with the entire experience of booking the Jiddi space at Sitti. The staff was great to work with, the room was beautiful, and the food was fantastic. Amy really went out of her way to help us make sure every detail was perfect and our entire evening went off without a hitch. They also made it extremely easy to accommodate guests with dietary restrictions.Sent on 03/12/2018
Would recommend this space to anyone!
Jennifer · Married on 03/03/2018
Amy was amazing to work with. She made our whole affair simple and easy from start to finish. On top of providing everything she promised, when 30 of our guests were unable to attend at the last minute due to weather related flight cancellations, she made necessary adjustments so that we didn't have an abundance of leftovers. I would recommend Sitti for any occasion!Sent on 04/12/2018

In November, 2017, my husband and I hosted a rehearsal dinner at the Jiddi Space with Gravy as the caterer. The evening was perfect! We live 3 1/2 hours from Raleigh but the long distance planning with Devan and Amy was flawless. Working with the event staff during the evening of our dinner was easy and relaxed; they were on point the entire time. Our 60 guests enjoyed excellent food and drinks in a beautiful venue. It was a wonderful evening to start the perfect wedding weekend.Sent on 03/03/2018
