One of our most beautiful memories
Our wedding was in October 2018.
After seeing a photo of the beautiful library room of University Club of Toronto, I knew right away I wanted to get married there. The venue was elegant, beautiful and classy while being conveniently located right downtown Toronto within walking distance to Osgood Hall, City Hall and Nathan Phillips Square. There are also lots of parking options close by. The rental fees were surprisingly affordable considering you have access to the entire space (two floors with multiple rooms, all pleasantly decorated). On top of that, the event coordinator was so lovely and responsive to all our questions and inquiries. Another selling point for me, being an art lover, I could only dream to have my wedding surrounded with paintings by the famous Group of Seven painters.
Being foodies, food was an important part of our decision making process. A little nervous because I’ve heard horror story of beautiful venues with mediocre food offerings, we were blown away on our tasting night. To make sure we sampled as many options of appetizers, entrees and desserts, we brought our parents and siblings to the tasting. Everyone loved the food! So beautifully presented and tasty. I’m still thinking about the scallop “en croute” soup to this day. The guests loved their dinner on the day of our wedding. The drinks were also very reasonably priced.
The wedding day turned out smooth and easy. I thank the staffs and the space at the club for that. Our family and friends really enjoyed themselves. My husband and I also spent our first night as a married couple in the room upstairs at the club.
We were so happy we went with University Club of Toronto, it was definitely one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. I highly recommend and would like to again thank Jill and all the staffs from the Club to make this special day one of our most beautiful memories.Sent on 14/07/2019

Value for Quality
I think this is Toronto's best kept secret. The location is perfect; right across from the court house and on the subway line. The staff are attentive and the decore is just historic. It's a great space if you're having an intimate wedding of less than 100 people. Received the invoice and was pleasantly surprised that it was half of what we would have had to pay had we gone to The Liberty Grand. And the Day of Event Coordinator was there for us when we needed here -- couldn't have done it without her.Sent on 12/11/2018

Hidden Gem in Toronto
This truly is the best kept secret in Toronto in terms of wedding venues. The value for what you get is amazing. All of my guests raved about the food and the space. Also because I had guests coming from out of town and the Club has a few rooms upstairs, it was perfect to be able for them to stay right at the venue which is right in the heart of the city. And the rooms are reasonably priced for Toronto. The club was very accommodating for all of my needs. I have to complement them on handing out all of my welcome bags to guests staying at the club.
I will say a few things though. I won't elaborate as I don't want to ruin the overall reviews of the space because it really is a great venue and I would highly recommend it to anyone thinking of somewhere in Toronto. We had a bit of an issue with music and the quality of sound for dancing and we ended up having to switch rooms to dance. For anyone in the future, apparently there is a wooden dance floor that they can put out in the main dining room. I would recommend doing that as music quality is better in that room. We worked it out with the venue fairly quickly and our guests were not upset. Also there was some confusion with cutting our cake, however the venue was extremely professional about the matter and reimbursed us for the price of a new cake. As well there was some confusion at our head table about a vegan meal but it was resolved fairly quickly as well. I would like to say that Danielle, the events coordinator who had only been on the job for a few weeks was fantastic. A few of my family members came up to me to say how organized she was. She and other staff also moved candles around after the ceremony was over to some of the hallways to light the areas at night. The effect was amazing and I hadn't even thought of moving them there. So a few bumps but nothing to dampen the day. An overall great experience at the Club and would highly recommend to those looking for a hidden gem in the heart of the city.Sent on 20/08/2019

We loved our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour and the dinner reception at the University Club of Toronto. The building and all rooms have an authentic vintage feel and added greatly to the event's atmosphere. We received a lot of compliments on the venue from our guests. Our party size was relatively small (50 guests) and there were plenty of space for everyone. Throughout all stages of planing we found it easy to work with venue's management and event coordinator - they were responsive and accommodating to our requests. The food and services during the reception (as well as hours d'oeuvres during he cocktail hour) were as promised - good quality and attentive service. We would highly recommend this venue for wedding events.Sent on 20/03/2016

The University Club of Toronto is a gem. We had 100 guests and this venue was perfect. The entire house was reserved for our ceremony, cocktail, dinner and dance. The decor of the house is tasteful and warm, so all we needed to supply were a garland for the mantel, and centrepieces for the dining tables. We were initially concerned about the dance floor being in a separate room, but it actually worked out very well. The different rooms provided a beautiful backdrop for pictures. We received many compliments about the venue. The entire team at the Club was extremely pleasant to work well.Sent on 26/07/2016
