L'Abattoir was accommodating, responsive, affordable (value for price was exceptional), the service was absolutely outstanding (thank you Melissa, Katie, Shannon, Lainey and all the other staff that made our day incredible), they followed our direction to a T. I could write on forever about how amazing they are!! Book this venue!!
