Our experience with Grazie! before and during our wedding reception on October, 25, 2008 was exceptional. I found Grazie! on the Web when I was casting a very large net (about 150 locations) for a venue for my wedding reception. As I narrowed venues down, it became clear that Grazie! fit the bill perfectly. Maura kept in touch with me before my decision was made, answering what must have been a million questions quickly. When my DH and I had it narrowed down, we visited four venues. The staff at Grazie! was accommodating and knowledgeable; the restaurant is beautiful and unique. But what sold us was the FOOD. I wanted my guests to have delicious food & full stomachs. When we checked out our menu options, I told my DH, 'either the food is incredible, or they're really good at describing it on the menu.' Thank goodness it turned out to be both! And the value! You receive so darn much for your money--it's incredible. Phyllis became our wedding coordinator, and Kami our banquet captain. Both were fantastic at their jobs. Phyllis answered a million more e-mails cheerfully. Kami told me that whenever I needed access to the room (unless there was an event going on), I had it. On the big day, everything went off without a hitch. My guests gushed about the food and the venue, with some stating that it was the best wedding they had ever been to! Kami was on top of everything that night, making sure that I had everything I needed, including a bridal suite I didn't even know I was getting! Another wedding was that night in the Grand Ballroom, but I barely noticed they were there. All in all, a fantastic night with fantastic food & service. BOOK this venue for your event--you won't regret it. And if you'd like to check out the food beforehand, they have a Sunday brunch that features a different menu each week, but always some of the entrees you'll pick from for your event--& always the sweet table. We will forever know that we made the right choice for our wedding day!
Pros: Atmosphere, food, service, value
