    Beautiful Venue

    We had our ceremony and reception on site. Marleen the coordinator was wonderful to work with and really helped us plan the big day. The staff at the venue was also amazing, they were friendly and had everything running smoothly. The head waiter Mohamed would check in with us to make sure everything was running smoothly and the way we wanted it. Because of this I felt we did not need a day of coordinator and the venue really came through. I also loved that I was able to set up the day before as there were no events which was really nice for me to be able to do all the set up myself

    The Waterside Inn's reply:

    Thank you so much for your wonderful review Nicole! I'm so happy to hear that you had an amazing day, and truly appreciate your fantastic comments about the staff. I wish you and Ryan all the best!

    Most amazing venue and staff!

    We got married at The Waterside Inn on October 2, 2021 and it was the most magnificent, happy and beautiful day. The venue itself is beautiful, our guests RAVED about the food and many ended up staying at the Inn even if they hadn’t planned to do so beforehand. From the very first conversation I had with Marlene (during COVID lockdowns) she has gone above and beyond for us. She is truly the most professional, kind, accommodating wedding/event coordinator I have ever even heard of! She worked with us DAILY (I am quite the worrier and she would put my mind at ease!) and even communicated directly to other vendors who we couldn’t get ahold of to make sure our day went off flawlessly. The staff on the-day-of were exemplary, even fanning out my dress, telling me I looked beautiful and running up to me with water and a straw when I was filled with anxiety before walking down the aisle. The serving staff kept on ensuring my Groom and I were eating, drinking water and taking a second to take it all in and we could not have had a more wonderful wedding day without every staff member there. A heartfelt thank you to Marlene and the rest of The Waterside Inn staff for the most amazing day of our lives! We will be back for a visit!!!

    The Waterside Inn's reply:

    Thank you SO much for your amazing review Candace (and Leo)! It was such a pleasure to work with you both and I'm so happy to read/hear that you two had a wonderful day! Take care and I hope to work with you again in the future! :)

    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.

    Highly recommended!!

    Marlene (venue coordinator) was so great to work with! She made the wedding planning process easy. She listened to our preferences and was able to make appropriate recommendations for us regarding the set up, menu etc. We had a small wedding so we hosted it inside the Breakwater Restaurant - the food was amazing and the restaurant staffs were all so caring and nice. Our guests enjoyed the food so much and even months after the wedding they still talk about how delicious the food were :) Thank you Marlene!

    The Waterside Inn's reply:

    Thank you for your wonderful review Stephanie! I'm so happy we were finally able to host your wedding (two years after it was originally planned for!). The restaurant looked beautiful and worked out great for your intimate wedding. It was lovely working with you both and I wish you all the best! 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! 

    The Waterside Inn's reply:

    It may have been delayed but worth the wait! And it looks like I'm really late to replying to it as well! LOL My apologies for missing it - 2020 was a crazy year!

    Thank you so much for your amazing review! It's so wonderful to read your feedback and I'm so happy that you were able to enjoy your day! We definitely have a great team here, and take pride in every event we host.

    Thank you so much and I truly hope to work with you both again soon!

    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.

    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!
