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 qualitySent on 16/10/2019
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.

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.Sent on 06/05/2019

Joe was wonderful in helping us accomodate our particular needs. Very responsive and understanding.Sent on 13/11/2018
The location functions like a well oiled machine, all vendors were very pleased in the way they were all able to make it all work. We went to several PMG locations and Joe was able to wow us.
It ended up being a perfect night and we received many kuddos to the team at Le Challenger Piazza.

We had an awesome time at the challenger. Our guests all complimented us on the food and service, they all said it was the best wedding venue they’ve been to! Joe Russo is incredibly nice, helpful and understanding throughout the planning process and during the wedding day. He made us feel we were part of his family, he made sure we had everything as we wanted it. We cannot fault anything at all with the venue, the staff or the food. Everything was perfect, we highly recommend you check this place out for your special event!Sent on 30/08/2017

Amazing experience with Joe Russo and his team.
I had an amazing reception with AMAZING food. I only have praises for this hall and its staff. This team was more than a hall management team! They tried as much as possible to help with the planning by suggesting some vendors.I would recommend this hall over any other one!Sent on 03/11/2017

The Challenger Reception Hall was one of the best choices of vendors (if not the best) I've made for my wedding! I can't even begin to explain how beautiful and classy this venue is, and on top of it all, the service and food are simply impeccable! Joe Russo is very easy to work with and responds to questions and concerns in a very reasonable time. As most of almost newlyweds to be, we were very uncertain and insecure with some details, but the Challenger staff does a great job in reassuring you that you are in good hands! I had friends and family coming from Europe and all over the States, and everyone was simply amazed with the beautiful venue and had NOTHING to complain about when it came to the food! They even asked for a second serving! The cocktail hour and sweet table were some of the best I've ever seen or tasted, everything was fresh and delicious! The service in the bridal suite was also impeccable, as they made sure no one was missing anything and made sure we had lots of the bites served at the cocktail hour! I would recommend this venue to any couple, having visited over 8-9 of them in the Montreal and surrounding area, I am 10000% sure I have picked the best one in all aspects!Sent on 23/10/2015

If I could describe in one word the experience I had with Le Challenger it would be "reliable". Every time I had questions, doubts or concerns I would always receive a clear and fast reply from them. The staff is very professional and I heard great things from my guests about the quality of the food. The service was impeccable and I had no issues on my wedding day, the whole night went smoothly and it all happened so fast! If you wish to organize your own wedding (like I did) or have someone else taking care of the details for you, this is the place to go!Sent on 05/10/2015
PS: Lots of parking space.

We wanted to thank you for everything you did for us. Everything was perfect. The food was absolutely delicious, everyone was complimenting us. From the pasta, to the meat, which was cooked to perfection, to the sweet table. All I can saw is wow! Everyone was raving about it. The staff went above and beyond our expectations. The service was impeccable. Everyone was so friendly and nice and extremely helpful.Sent on 16/08/2015

Where on earth to start, Le Challenger is just absolutely stunning; it was everything I was looking for in my venue beautiful inside and out. But I don’t just pick a place because of the look; I needed to trust the person who was going to be there on the day. I had a Meeting with Joe 2 years ago, he listen to everything we wanted and made sure we got it, I hadn’t asked all my questions because I had another appointment but I sent him a long point form e-mail asking him everything my wedding planner asked. Joe took the time to answer every single question, and still told me if I had anything else to him know. Joe won my trust and we booked with him, I met with a lot of halls and he was the only one that looked at me, answered my questions, and made time for us without answering phone calls in between. The day of my wedding was a perfect day, the staff incredible, the food out of this world, the room was exactly as I imagined it would be. Let’s just say Joe delivered! I hope I get to go to many more events at Le Challenger because it doesn’t disappoint! My guests still tell me how the food and service was amazing, best wedding they’ve been too.Sent on 29/06/2015
