    Amazing location , right by the water. With a great view of the Toronto skyline. The coordinators here are quick and timely. Dora was ours. She was pleasant, friendly and very helpful. At one point we didn't have a planner and she really stepped up to the plate! The staff was ... View more great and the food was incredible!!!! We're still getting compliments on the food in conversations! They really catered to all our menu wants and needs. We couldn't have picked a better, more affordable venue. It really transforms once decorated! The bridal suite was a great plus too! Venue , Event Coordinator, Catering , AV/Sound & Lights, All Day Bridal Suite etc.. all included! What more can you ask for. The just leaves a planner and decor for the big things!

    Choosing Palais Royale was the best decision we made when planning our wedding. They are such an amazing venue in every way - they are organized, flexible, fun, accommodating, and simply the best! The food was PHENOMENAL and Stefan the chef, was such a treat to work with and so ... View more passionate about food (just like us)! Jocilea, our coordinator was such a delight to work with, as was Robin, the head server, and all of the staff! I loved them so much!

    I would highly recommend Palais Royale as a wedding venue. From the second we were even considering booking with them, they were nothing but kind and friendly to us. Once we had booked with them, they invited us to their open house and showcased their delicious food, drinks and ... View more preferred vendors. They were always encouraging us to drop in for a coffee whenever we were in the area. Robert was our planner and he was INCREDIBLE. I can't recommend him or the venue enough. They went above and beyond to make everything perfect and problem solved any issues that came up without me even realizing them. We loved getting married out on their patio and coming inside for the reception. The fact that the bars and the dance floor and tables are all in one room really keeps the party going all night. I also loved the fact that only one wedding can take place in one night. In addition, the venue is so beautiful and didn't need much in terms of decor. If you are looking for an intimate wedding space that can actually accommodate more than 150 people this is the perfect place for you. Everything was perfect and we can't thank Palais enough!!!

    Palais Royale is a gorgeous venue to get married in. Our wedding day went off without a hitch. The Palais Royale staff was extremely professional and provided an incredible service. We've had countless compliments on our choice of venue. There is nothing negative to say about Palais Royale, it is fabulous.

    Palais Royale is the very definition of top-notch customer service, class and elegance. My wife and I could not speak highly enough about how much attention to detail the staff give. From the security to the kitchen and bar staff, AV staff and severs – every employee at Palais ... View more Royale made our night magical and did so with a smile on their face. Our meal was absolutely spectacular – Chef Steffan Howard did an amazing job delivering exactly what we discussed at our meal tasting and dinner planning. He was attentive and payed impeccable attention to detail in presentation, allergies and requests. Our guests could not stop raving about the food. I recall one family member describing the beef tenderloin as “the best piece of meat I’ve ever eaten”. The bar staff were lively and did an excellent job managing very thirsty guests. They did a really neat ‘flare’ show that really entertained our guests and did a great job making creative cocktails. The bar package included a much larger selection of beers and liquors compared to other reception venues. The service staff made sure our guests enjoyed their meal and did a great job topping up drinks during meals and circulating food and drink during the cocktail reception. They ensured that the bridal party were treated like VIPs. The venue itself was exceptionally clean and the spectacular sunset on their large patio was nothing short of breathtaking. The sound system was also top-notch and really delivered quite a beat during the dances! Even when things went awry with our cake company delivering a toppled cake, the staff already had plans B and C ready to go – which speaks volumes for how prepared and well trained the staff are. Most importantly, when things were stressful, the staff kept us calm and made us feel like everything will work out fine. Robin & Dora both deserve a medal. If I was the owner of this business, I would feel incredibly lucky to have such a dedicated and talented group of staff. Palais Royale will always have a place in our hearts for delivering us the perfect wedding. We would recommend Palais Royale to any friends without hesitation.
