Palais Royale is a mansion wedding venue located in Toronto, Ontario. This luxurious and resplendent venue boasts a potent blend of historic charm and contemporary glamour. Ideal for ceremonies and receptions, this venue could be the ideal place for you to say “I do” and begin your life as newlyweds. This lakeside property affords gorgeous views of nature while also exuding sophistication through its interiors.

Facilities and Capacity

Couples are free to officially tie the knot at Palais Royale's 4,000 square-foot courtyard patio. Boasting two tiers, it can host a total of 318 people. Affording everyone the chance to look out across Lake Ontario, it oozes a peaceful ambience for an iconic moment. When arranged with white chairs either side of a makeshift aisle, and decorated with blooming florals, it is fitting of the occasion. Alternatively, if the weather is not cooperating, the wedding party can assemble indoors to watch as the happy couple say their vows and swap rings. The to-be-weds can stand in front of a warm fireplace as their invitees take their places on the Chiavari-style chairs. Once the couple have been officially pronounced as married, the wedding party can drift towards one of the many function areas available. The Parlour can accommodate approximately 150 people for the cocktail reception, and it makes for a laid-back setting with its muted color scheme and lounge furniture. Of course, the Courtyard Patio can also be rearranged to host al fresco hors d’oeuvres or pre-meal drinks. Other event spaces to explore include the Green Room, Lower Lounge, and Red Room.

The Ballroom is where you and your guests can retreat to for a memorable dining experience. In terms of capacity, 350 people can enjoy a sit-down meal here when the dance floor is free, or 400 if the space is laid out fully with tables. For a stand-up reception, 880 can easily fit here. Tables and chairs can be set out for added comfort, while lounge furniture may also be supplied. A large and graceful space, it would be ideal for speeches and toasts to take place.

Services Offered

To assist the happy couple and ensure that their fairytale is brought to life accordingly, a planning service can be provided. Palais Royale's staff enjoy working closely with clients to foster an enjoyable event embellished by high-quality service. Culinary menus can easily be customized to suit distinctive preferences, while bartenders are more than happy to serve beer, wine, and Champagne.


Once upon a time, Palais Royale played host to many famous musicians. In fact, for almost 100 years, they invited such esteemed guests as Count Basie and Duke Ellington. Today, the venue is a location of choice for celebrations of romance and commitment.

Stunning Venue with Incredible Service

Palais Royale is a special place to get married. Our guests still can't stop talking about the incredible views, amazing service and food that was to-die-for! Every element of the wedding was meticulously cared for by the planners and the staff executed my vision perfectly. We could not have asked for more from this amazing team and venue. You will have a wonderful experience here!!

Just magnificent

Both of us fell in love with Palais Royale in the past, so when we finally toured the venue and reviewed the cost, it was a no-brainer.

The ballroom was spacious for a proper social distancing event, and no one felt as it was even the first event many attended post-pandemic. Everything looked and was perfect – and Chantelle helped us get there!

The staff was phenomenal and responsive. I am someone with extreme hearing loss, so when I discussed this with the venue, accommodations were not a problem at all. I had a separate venue meeting with Rob, who is in charge of sound at Palais Royale. They created a setup near the head table that allowed me to hear the speeches perfectly without additional assistance devices.

Now the food. EVERYONE we talked to had an amazing time that night, and EVERYONE mentioned the food stations we had set up for our guests. One person even mentioned that he was 'dreaming' of the food after he left.

Hats off to the wonderful staff and catering.

Great Exerience

Our wedding was 2 months ago. The venue is amazing and unique. Our quests had a really good time. The staff is very helpful and flexible.
However, there were some hiccups along the way, which is why I did not give a perfect rating.
We had some changes the week of the wedding and our coordinator changed. The order of the table numbers was wrong which was very disappointing as our guests where not placed in optimal position. We had some issues with pricing but it was resolved quickly when we brought them up. Staff is responsive and flexible that way.
It's a little expensive, but the food was amazing (guests still talk about it) and the view is breathtaking.

Stunning Waterfront Venue and Beautiful Historical Dance Hall

Choosing Palais Royale for our wedding reception was one of the BEST decisions we made for our wedding!!! From day 1 of planning they were extremely responsive and helpful to plan out our perfect wedding reception! They paired us with a fantastic day of coordinator Lauren who promptly answered all our emails, walked us through designing the room and customizing our wedding menu. Palais Royale has a fantastic culinary team that works with you to customize the menu to be exactly what you want! They have SO many options (including tons of late night station options) and if you have a special request they will go out of their way to make it for you! We had the best time at our tasting and so much fun choosing the menu options. They also accommodate all dietary requests! On the day of their servers and bartenders were fantastic and provided a wonderful experience for our guests. The waterfront views were stunning and the dance floor had our guests dancing all night long! All my vendors said it is one of their favorite venues - including the DJ who says it has one of the best sound systems! I couldn’t have wished for a more perfect place to host our wedding! The gardens beside the Palais also are ideal for beautiful photos :) It also had a lot of sentimental value for us as my grandparents met there on the dance floor many years ago! I can’t recommend the Palais Royale enough!

The Perfect Venue

Rebecca and the rest of the Palais team were absolutely wonderful. The venue was super cozy and lovely for our Fall wedding and we got to take advantage of the amazing patio (with tent). Amazing rope light set up, delicious food, friendly staff. Our guests raved about the experience and we could not be more pleased! The lead up and day of was all super smooth, and we had a a blast

Perfect wedding reception!

We held our wedding reception at Palais Royale and could not be more happy with our decision. The venue itself is beautiful, with an amazing outdoor patio. The ballroom looks great with minimal decor. A big selling feature for us was that you and your guests have the entire venue to yourself!
The service, especially from our wedding coordinator Rebecca, was amazing. She was by our side helping us out through the entire planning process, and helped us adapt our plans multiple times to fit the covid restrictions; including the week of the wedding when Ontario moved to the next stage of re-opening earlier than planned. Leading up to the wedding, she helped us understand our options and answered all of our (many) questions in a timely manner. On the day of, she handled all of the details and I really had nothing to stress about! The food was also fantastic (and our guests would agree)!
This venue is more expensive than some of the other options we looked at, but it was worth it, because you get what you pay for. Thank you so much Rebecca and the rest of the Palais Royale staff who contributed to our day!

Fairytale Wedding

Our wedding at Palais Royale was absolute perfection. We still get compliments a year later.
We held both our ceremony and reception at Palais Royale, and we are thankful that we did. Having the entire venue to ourselves made it feel more personal and intimate. It made it simple for our guests to arrive and enjoy the entire event worry-free.

We had the pleasure of working with Robert as our wedding coordinator throughout the planning and our coordinator the day of the wedding. I can't express how much easier it was with him there on the day. My husband and I were both blown away that we kept to schedule and everything was perfect; no mishaps, no missed cues, no rushing. It allowed us to enjoy the day stress-free and live in the moment.

A special thank you to Chef Steffan; the menu was impeccable, and our guests are still raving about the food and the beautiful presentation. When it came to picking a venue, food was our number one priority and Chef Steffan sat down with us and was very flexible in accommodating our requests.

The entire staff was flexible and patient with our personal and cultural requests, and last-minute changes. We truly appreciate the staff constantly going the extra mile to give us our fairytale wedding!

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!

Truly amazing!

Having our wedding at Palais Royale was the best decision. From the moment we reached out to enquire, Chantelle was so informative, responsive and really trying to make things work for us from the very beginning. At our tasting we knew we made the right choice as the food and service was so good - and this was the same on our wedding day. The patio where we had our ceremony was perfect and the views were amazing. I really wish I could do it all over again!
