Fantastic Restaurant Wedding Experience in the Heart of Hamilton

We hosted our wedding at The Diplomat and were thrilled with the whole experience. They made the planning process fun and easy, and were very flexible to see our vision. We hosted 76 people including children. The food was outstanding. We still get compliments on the quality and taste of the food. Our guests loved the service that night. The atmosphere at The Diplomat is great. We had a great space for cocktails, dinner and a dance floor. The value was outstanding. The Diplomat is a very reasonably priced option for a restaurant wedding. We loved our whole experience and would definitely recommend working with The Diplomat to any other couple looking for a restaurant wedding. Some comments from our guests the following day through email were: “Thank you for a wonderful evening last night!!! What a fabulous spot - the food was delicious and it had the coolest atmosphere.”

“It was a lovely restaurant; the food was very good; the servers all pleasant.”

“I missed thanking you for asking me to attend a great event. The front desk at the hotel told us it was a great location,certainly the food and the service was first class.”

There is no better venue

To say that the diplomat staff are wonderful would be an understatement. My expectations were overwhelmingly exceeded I the best way possible. From the food, to the atmosphere, they made the reception feel exactly what I wanted and more.
