    Thank you for all your help and support!

    Our wedding was on November 20th 2021. It was a dream come true and ALL the staff at EWG are amazing to work with from start to finish.

    Frances & Alison- You were both absolutely amazing to work with. We cannot thank you enough for a smooth transition after our last venue flaked on us.

    From the beautiful ceremony, venue, food and incredible staff, everything was perfect! Our wedding day was a dream come true. Thank you for all your help and support!

    Professional, helpful, and great to work with

    Married on September 12th, 2021 at EWG1
    We were over the moon with our experience at the Eglinton West Gallery!
    We loved all the unique touches that are available at this venue. The staff we worked with at each stage of the planning process (Covid!) were professional, helpful, and great to work with. Our guests loved the venue! It's an amazing space, you can do a little or a lot with the space provided and it will look beautiful! It is centrally located, and an amazing experience. The event went so smoothly, the staff working on the night of were fantastic. We were so happy we chose the venue and catering (catertrendz)!

    it was absolutely gorgeous

    We had a beautiful wedding at EWG. Our wedding coordinator Frances was very attentive and even with COVID we felt that everyone at the venue was very flexible and considerate. We also got our sit down with the chef for our dinner where he came up with some really unique ideas for our dessert and we really appreciated that personal touch. Would recommend 20x over. Everyone said it was the best wedding they had been to, it was absolutely gorgeous.

    Professional, caring and kind!

    We planned to have our wedding at EWG but, of course, the pandemic changed everything for 2020. We did not want to postpone our wedding date and we could no longer have it take place at EWG- we opted to have a small family wedding. Claire provided us with options of what we can do. Her customer service was amazing and she worked with us to use our deposit towards a friend wedding in 2022. calire is very professional, caring and kind. She and her team have excellent customer service. We hope to work with EWG in the future for another event.

    Thank you for for your accommodation during COVID19

    Our original wedding date is booked for March 28th 2020. Due to the COVID 19 we asked EWG and CaterTrendz to postpone the wedding to July 2020 and they did. Wonderful office staff and amazing team to work with. Thank you for for your accommodation - Much appreciated!

    Horrible, ruined my wedding

    I recently had my wedding reception at EWG. If I could select NO STAR I would. We had an extremely horrible experience from start to finish.
    I paid for the upgraded bar package, only to have my bartenders quit an hour before my guest were to arrive . The venue bought in non trained bartenders which were severing shots out of water glasses causing alot of my guest to become very sick. No shot glasses available. No beer bottle opener available. Guest had to use keys to open beer.
    I paid for the Cafe bar upgrade because without having this upgrade espresso is not served. The upgrade was described as having a barista onsite all night. Meanwhile the barista server was split between the cafe bar and serving food, which she ended up being covered in pasta sauce (looked like she was involved in a pasta fight) . Also espresso was beings served in large coffee mugs as there was no espresso cups available. My guest had to explain to the teenage girls what a espresso was and how to operate the machine.
    Venue was over an hour late to open doors for vendors to set up day of wedding. Week of I was advised of shortage with my table linen choice, I selected another only to have mixed matched linens day of my wedding set up (on duty supervisor was advised and nothing was corrected.
    I paid for the antipasto buffet bar, which was not served to the bride, groom, bridal party or parents. When asked at the beginning of dinner where our dishes were we were advised there wasn't any food left (again paid as an upgrade PER PERSON)

    I paid for the upgraded duel meat dish to be served (red meat & chicken). Some guests were not served this plate at all, and some received two chickens instead. (Again paid as an upgrade PER PERSON) . Pasta dish was ICE cold and served without cheese or chillies on tables.

    All waitstaff was extremely inexperienced. They hire all teenagers with no guidance or direction, so they all look like deers in headlights. When I asked about my wedding cake I was given a dirty looks and attitude .

    I had given direction for how my wedding cake is to be served. I had 3 flavors, and only one was out for the guests. When I asked the supervisor Rosa to serve all flavors it took 45 minutes by then everyone had already ate the mid night food.

    I paid for venue in full prior to event, and was advised if any issues we would be able to discuss after the event. Upon discussion we were offered a catered dinner, which is a slap in the face. I contacted the OWNER ISSAC DROOKMAN many times and have ALL gone unanswered. This venue does not care about their customers. I would NEVER recommend them to anyone and will make it known.
    They have a venue with beautiful bones, but with NO professionalism they will ruin it.
