"Choosing Donna Mac for quality of food, service and decor made this event so stress free and we had every confidence we didn’t need to worry about a thing. The atmosphere for our wedding was exactly what we envisioned - warm and inviting. The contemporary design, fresh plants, candlelight, floor to ceiling windows providing lots of natural light in any season paired with staff that catered to every detail.
To us, Donna Mac is the perfect place to host weddings and private events. Our family and friends can’t stop telling us how wonderful the night was!"
