    The perfect place for the perfect Wedding!!

    My fiancé and I decided to get married after 3 years of courtship. We wanted something small and intimate and at a place that would cater to us and our guests.
    Initially, our wedding was booked at another venue. We changed date 3 times due to covid19. Our venue decided to stay closed even after stage 3 opened in Mississauga so we had to find another venue that could host our wedding. With recommendations from our venue we found The Waterside Inn. We were very anxious about changing venue amid a pandemic. We toyed with the idea of postponing our wedding, but we took the leap and book The Waterside Inn.
    From the first meeting to the final invoice the professionalism, expertise and excellent service by Marlene made the entire process comfortable and a very pleasant experience. It went better than expected.
    There are many venues and planners out there who “work” for themselves, not the client. This venue and planner are not one of them. It was as great an experience, as promised and I can strongly recommend the waterside Inn and Marleen. The venue was very flexible, the staff was extremely friendly, provided excellent service, everyone was easy to work with and did everything with a smile, the table presentation and service was warm, caring and totally professional. The food and wine were excellent!! The service far exceeded our high expectations.!!!
    It's very evident that this company cares and valued ours and their business.
    A huge thanks to all the staff & management for their very kind and courteous assistance in making our wedding celebration so perfect! Thank you for exceeding the typical customer service.
    You all ROCK!!

    The Waterside Inn's reply:

    Thank you for your amazing review Maureen! I was so happy that we were able to accommodate you and that we were able to move forward finally after all the postponements! It was a pleasure working with you and seeing your vision become reality. I wish you both the best. Take care! Thank you.

    My sincere gratitude to The Waterside Inn (Our Wedding Day 28.12.2019)

    This review may come abit late but wanted to express my sincere gratitude to The Waterside Inn (Our Wedding Day 28.12.2019).  It was the perfect wedding we'd hope for and more.  The staff were very attentive to our needs the night before, the day of and even after all the festivities. Marlene was a wonderful coordinator to work with. We were in good hands as the reception part of our day started.

    My fiance, at the time, and I had other vendors to look into however the Waterside Inn was the venue we found that could take >50 of our friends and family for a lunch wedding before the end of the year. We honestly had less than four months to plan as we wanted to start the new year together and move into our new place.
    Leading up to our special day, I'd say the hardest part of our planning was the dietary restrictions that came with our families.  God bless Marlene for taking my emails, random questions and concerns into consideration.  This venue is very experienced with food allergies and dietary requests for many different kinds of events. She was very professional and provided us with seating charts (often constantly revised), menus printed, candles and other details that we didn't have to worry about.  The children's meals and even the individuals with allergies were well taken care of by the staff, it wasn't even on my radar when everything began.  
    We had so many compliments on the buffet and how all things were kept hot and well prepared.  It was a nice sunny day (the only sunny day that week as there were many winter days that Christmas week) that we took even a few photo shots outside near the harbour which was unplanned.  All that planning and it went by so fast!  My relatives enjoyed their condo-style suite the nights they stayed were over.  The staff even helped to print our speeches the night before.  Everyone enjoyed our Christmas-style wedding!
    The brunch the next morning was delicious and a nice compliment to end our stay.  I've heard of their Sunday Brunch before and it was amazing to finally try it.  It was so nice to see Mohammad and similar staff faces again take care of us and their excellent service. 

    As we are in trying times, I would highly recommend this affordable venue if interested in the micro wedding or brunch or lunch wedding.  If our lunch wedding went this smoothly I'm sure they would have done a phenomenal job for a full-day affair.  Thank you Marlene and the Waterside Inn staff for being a part of the best day ever!

    We had the most AMAZING wedding!

    I would recommend the Waterside Inn to anyone looking for a venue for any event. Marlene was amazing to work with. She was easy going, attentive, competent, and responsive. If any issues came up she worked them out with me. She made me felt at ease and on the day of my wedding I had nothing to worry about as I had full confidence in her, and she did not disappoint. Our wedding day ran so smoothly and was absolutely beautiful. We received so many compliments from our guests. Many of our guests told us it was the smoothest running wedding they had ever attended. And the food was absolutely delicious! Again, our guests raved about the food. Toni was the manager during our reception and was also very attentive and made sure we were happy with everything. He was also great to work with. I would highly recommend the Waterside Inn.

    The Waterside Inn's reply:

    Thank you so much for your amazing review Jaimee! I truly enjoyed working with you (and your family!) and help in the planning of your beautiful day. I hope we can work together again in the future! Wishing you and Kevin all the best.

    Brunch Wedding

    We held our ceremony and brunch reception at the Waterside Inn. We were happy with the catering staff, food and venue. Waterside provided all the linens and some light for the table, I provided my own table numbers and small floral centrepieces. The catering manager Marlene Barcelos and her team did an excellent job in all the coordination.

    The Waterside Inn's reply:

    Thank you so much for your wonderful review! It was a pleasure working with you both and I wish you all the best!

    The Watereside Inn is a beautiful boutique venue. The facility is beautiful being down in Port Credit on the waterfront and the staff goes out of their way to ensure that the event goes off without any hitches. Marlene, the Social Catering Sales Manager is so professional and adapts to any request to make your event successful - and has a wonderful personality, to boot !

    The Waterside Inn's reply:

    Thank you for your kind words Jim! It was a pleasure and an honor to work with you and Paul - I miss you both! I wish you both all the best, you're an amazing couple, and I hope we can work together again in the future (or just meet up for a drink!). Thank you.

    Incredible food, venue and staff.

    The Waterside Inn was our first choice as a venue. We live in Port Credit, we love the area, and with reading all their incredible reviews, it was an easy decision. However, once we contacted the Waterside, they were booked for our wedding day, so we had to come up with a plan B.
    On the cusp of making a final decision, I contacted the Waterside Inn to see if there were any changes. To our surprise and amazement, they had a cancellation, so it was meant to be all along.

    We met with Marlene, who gave us a tour of the venue and was incredibly friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We instantly felt so at ease with Marlene. She was amazing from that first meeting.

    Planning a wedding at the Waterside was a breeze. Marlene handled so much, and responded to every e-mail, phone call with so much professionalism and charm. I felt like we had nothing to worry about, because our day was in very capable hands.

    The level of service we received was of such a high standard.
    Our tasting was handled with so much care. We really felt like royalty, and it was so hard to choose our menu because the food was so delicious! We ended up customizing our menu, and Marlene was incredible in conducting it all.

    The night before our wedding, us and some members of our families came to prepare our receiving table, and got a glimpse of the grand ballroom all set up for our big day. We had tears in our eyes. Everything was so perfectly placed. The Waterside Inn have an elegant vintage charm which shines through in their level of service. Linens were crisp white, not a wrinkle in sight. Polished charger plates and cutlery. Wine glasses sparkling in the light. It was everything we envisioned and more.

    Our wedding day was incredible. The staff were so professionally dressed and courteous. The food was out of this world, and the ballroom looked stunning. We were so happy. Our guests keep telling us how they also felt like royalty on the day, which is amazing.

    We had relatives and friends staying at the Inn for extended periods of time, as many traveled from abroad to be here. They all complimented the Inn and had a great stay.

    The little touches are what makes the Waterside so unique. If you are looking for a venue which will deliver on every aspect of what makes a wedding a great one, this is the place. We couldn't be happier.

    Thank you Marlene and all the staff at The Waterside Inn!

    The Waterside Inn's reply:

    Thank you for your amazing feedback Lila! I'm so touched by your words and so happy that it all worked out for you due to the cancellation. It was a pleasure working with you and James and I wish you both all the very best. Thank you!!!!

    Fantastic Experience :)

    Amazing venue - beautiful, elegant and intimate at the same time. We had a fantastic experience having our ceremony and reception at Waterside Inn. Marlene was especially helpful and just beyond awesome, she guided us through the planning process and helped out in so many other ways, we are very grateful to her for making things so much easier and smoother for us. Staff at the venue was excellent, couldn't be happier with their services. Would recommend this venue to everyone!

    My husband and I had our wedding reception at Waterside Inn in July of 2015 and we were extremely happy with our experience. From the very first visit, Marlene Barcelos was extremely helpful and beyond professional in every element of the planning. We had about 250 guests that were able to sit comfortably and enjoy the stunning banquet hall with ease. The staff was very accommodating to all of our needs and requests, including customizing certain meals to meet the various dietary restrictions of our guests. All of the food was fantastic! The guest rooms were bright and luxurious, and everyone who stayed said they would be returning. This includes us, who very happily spent our first anniversary there, reliving the happy day. Waterside went above and beyond our expectations to make our wedding feel unique and special. Can't wait for our next visit!

    Thank you so much for your AMAZING review Cassandra! It was a pleasure working with you and Rodnne and I hope you are both doing well! Thanks so much and we look forward to hosting you again in the future.
