    Palais Royale was a Dream Come True

    I really can't say enough good stuff about Palais Royale. They made all our wedding dreams come true in a way only professionals can. At the center of all that was incredible was their amazing coordinator Jocilea who made everything SO easy and comfortable for us, we worked with her for over two years before our wedding day to make everything a dream come true. Right down to the day of, she was professional, warm, and just an overall wonderful person and I'd say we've actually become friends. This venue, which holds decades of history, has wedding science perfected. Every staff member was attentive and went out of their way to make our day perfect, including Chef Stefan who fed our guests what some described as the best wedding food they'd ever had. He even put aspects of our family's cultures into the dishes for a special touch. Katy and Mary who also work at the venue were wonderful as well, helping me calm my nerves the day of while running around to put everything in its place. I really could go on all day about what a fantastic group Palais Royale is. I am so so so glad we got to work with them for our wedding!

    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 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!

    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.

    Wedding 2018 - Palais Royale is the place to be!

    We had our wedding this past October at Palais Royale on the terrace over looking the water and skyline of Toronto! It was beyond perfect. We had the most amazing night of our lives and can’t tell you how many people felt the same. We could not have picked a better venue than Palais Royale! The food, staff, service, set up, really everything was so special. We truly feel so lucky to have chosen Palais Royale as our wedding venue. I would not have changed a thing about our wedding day! We worked with Jocilea from Palais Royale and she was just a pleasure to work with! She is super responsive, positive, very organized and attentive and always smiling! We would recommend this venue to anyone looking to have their wedding in Toronto!

    Dream come true

    We had THE most amazing and memorable day at PR and we couldn't recommend them enough. The venue itself is so historical and has such character we fell in love with it the moment we visited. We had about 180 guests which turned out to be a really good number for the venue. Their food is absolutely fantastic and all our guests were raving about the quality. They are very attentive with all the dietary restrictions and allergies of our guests. All the staff there are extremely professional and courteous. Robert, our coordinator and day of planner was also absolutely fantastic! He kept the day running smoothly and his experience really showed. We had some late last minute additions, but Robert and the venue were still able to accommodate and provide our guests and us with the best experience. The weather for our wedding was unfortunately a little cold, but we still managed to have our ceremony on the terrace over looking the lake, which was really a highlight.
