    My daughter was married August 4th and had her reception at the C hotel. Everything was great until the DJ came on scene. She did not have the couple's play list and would not do requests as according her they weren't in her program. Also she spoke in a very quiet unintellagle ... View more voice and could not be heard at the other end of the room. At one point she had a Steve making a speech. No Steve's in my family. Make sure you do not get LULU. She was a waste of time and energy. A cell phone playing music would have been better. Very disappointed

    We got married at Carmen's the Lakeview and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding. The food was amazing, the hall was gorgeous and the staff really helped us stay stress free! Amber was a delight to work with, and she had us laughing the entire time. Richard and Karen ... View more were excellent in their care of us. I feel that the staff went above and beyond (including but not limited to getting me Advil for my headache at the wedding). If we could do it over, we would absolutely pick the Lakeview again. Our guests loved the evening and were giving us compliments all night.

    Overall, Carmens Banquet Centre did an amazing job for our wedding. Only gave 4 stars on service and value for the following reasons: Carmens states on their website that they have "an extensive array of decor" included in every package, what they don't tell you is that a lot of ... View more lot of items have an up charge. good luck getting the chair cover colours that you want unless they are black, white or gold. they also have a very limited selection colour of tablecloths, sure you could get any table cover you want but be ready to pay at least $10 a table. we went to the food tasting that carmens provides. we chose the rose vodka pasta which was a creamy pink penne pasta. on the day of our wedding it was announced to all of our guests that they were getting rose pasta. when we sat down to dinner, all of our guests including the head table was served white alfredo pasta. my husband immediately said something and we were told "it just looks a little light." this was not the case. i had guests coming up to me saying "i thought we were being served rose pasta?" this wouldn't have been a huge deal but my parents spent $15,000 on the venue, food and drinks and my father absolutely hates alfredo pasta. on the follow up phone call, my mother spoke to carmens and told them about the mix up, all she asked for was $100 to be put in her pocket (this is only the price of one head at this wedding). carmens absolutely refused, then they said they would talk to the higher ups and call her back, never received a phone call back. she called them 3 more times and finally they told us that me and my husband to come in and they would "feed us a free meal". we refused and have never heard from them again. professional thing to do would have been to refund the $100, and i would not be on here writing this review. it sounds like i'm being picky but when they charge so much for a wedding and pride themselves on being the best and professional, you expect the best

    Incredible service, made the day so much less stressful! We had our wedding at the lakeview, and we couldn't have asked for a better venue. Everyone, including the servers, DJ, and bartenders, were absolutely incredible. Would definitely recommend.
