    Shaughnessy restaurant & Toni did a fabulous job with our wedding from start to finish. The food, service and quality were what we were hoping and more. I don't think you could ask for more from a venue!

    We held our rehearsal dinner here and were so impressed with the quality of the service and food and we felt very well taken care of. The servers were very pleasant to work with and accommodated our requests to adjust the timing of each course to ensure we had time for speeches. We were able to have the back room of the restaurant to ourselves and it was such a beautiful space. Would highly recommend this as a great rehearsal dinner venue!

    I loved this venue the minute I saw it and knew it was exactly the location I wanted for our wedding.

    My review would not have been nearly so strong in the planning stages, but the day of the wedding everything went absolutely perfectly. I was concerned as their event manager is hardly what you would call a lover of weddings. I always felt like I was a bother when I contacted the venue, and they often didn't have precise answers for me. (Ex: I was making my own table runners, and I asked them how long their tables are... but they told me to just come in and measure them myself. Each table is the same size and they just push them together! You don't know how long your tables are?)

    That being said, they were very flexible. We were able to bring in our own desserts and snacks made by friends and family, we had lots of space to store our decor, and were even able to drop it off on Friday and pick it up Sunday, which was incredibly helpful. Plus, the day of, the service was impeccable. The servers were always extremely knowledgable and I didn't worry at all about how my guests were being taken care of.

    Plus... the place is stunning. You might be a bit stressed along the way, but in the end, the sheer beauty of the place is worth it!

    We had our wedding reception here at Shaughnessy Restaurant. We absolutely loved it! It was summer and it was beautiful to have the view of the garden surrounding the restaurant. We had the use of the lobby and the front and back patio where our guests could be around. The interior was exactly what we wanted too - simple, classic, clean with touches of natural elements.

    The staff were so accommodating and provided great suggestions during our planning of the space, timing, and meals. They provided excellent service to us and our guests. We received so many compliments on the food and drinks as well. They really helped make the night go so smoothly especially during transitional times. We really feel like they were celebrating with us as well!

    We were overjoyed to have celebrated our wedding at Shaughnessy Restaurant. Our guests agreed with our choice as well. I am pleased to recommend Shaughnessy Restaurant to anyone who is looking to hold an event or simply just to enjoy a great meal in a beautiful atmosphere.
