Fantastic Service!

Joe and The Challenger made our wedding experience better than we could have ever expected. Everything was so beautiful and ran smoothly. And they made sure that us and our bridal parties were being served food and drinks, even when we were with the rest of our guests (away for photos, or just to take a break). Highly recommended!!

Wedding at Le Challenger

I'm sure we were a bit annoying planning our wedding as we had many questions, planning a wedding during a pandemic was rough. Joe was always responsive and willing to help, and he allowed us to postpone our wedding several months due to the pandemic. The venue is stunning, the food was delicious, our guests were so happy with the food. I only wish I had been able to eat more and enjoy the food, but I was busy! We plan to return to the restaurant for our anniversary. Thank you for everything!

The BEST Food and Service

All our guests were impressed with the food and service. We also had some strict vegans who required special dishes, and they were also very impressed with the quality of the food. The team was very responsive to our needs and helped us decorate the hall exactly how we wanted. The area is also surrounded by beautiful greenery and parks making post-ceremony pics easy and accessible. Plus, with the pandemic, the hall was highly adaptive and flexible when we had to change our dates. An incredible experience that we highly recommend.

Great service & a beautiful venue!

The Challenger team was great to work with and were very flexible even up to the day before to change the floor plan. Our guests were very impressed with the food and they are still talking about the late night snack table. We will definitely recommend this venue for future events.

Great service, excellent quality

We were very happy to have our reception at the Challenger. We had 240 guests and we were very comfortable in the Salle des Nations. We really liked that we had the whole upstairs floor to ourselves, and didn’t feel like we were crammed in with multiple other weddings, like we saw at other halls. We had our cocktail outside, which was beautiful. We only heard great comments about the food. Everyone ate very well and it was great quality. The staff was very friendly and respectful. Overall, it was also less expensive than other places we visited, but without sacrificing any of the quality
We had two good friends of ours as wedding planners for the day, and it made a world of difference for us. They set up the hall for us and inspected everything before the guests arrived. A few of the seat cushions were dirty and the staff had them changed right away. They were also in contact with the staff all night, so we didn’t have to worry about anything. Everything went perfectly, and any small incidents were treated rapidly and efficiently by the staff.

Beautiful wedding!

Working with Le Challenger was so easy and made everything worry-free for us. Joe was always available to answer questions and understood what we wanted. The venue is beautiful and elegant, we were lucky enough to have great weather for an outdoor ceremony. The food choices were delicious, and Claude and Reza helped everything run smoothly throughout the night.
