    Great Venue & Good Food

    We held our reception for 145 people at River Rock on August 24th, 2019. Our point of contact was Teresa and we were emailing multiple times back and forth throughout the whole planning process and she was very helpful and responded to all our questions promptly. The planning process with Teresa was painless (at least on our end :D ).
    Our reception was being held in Ballrooms A & B and they were very kind enough to offer us the final Ballroom C complimentary which made a HUGE difference and opened up the space for our guests. The venue was large enough that everyone had space to move around each table but still felt intimate enough as we could see everyone's smiling faces from the head table.
    Our guests raved about the canapes that were served during cocktail hour. Especially the oyster motoyaki and truffle cauliflower soup. Dinner was also well received and we added a carving station but the fave was the roasted lamb shoulder. Guests went back for seconds and that's definitely a good sign. The staff were also very attentive and friendly.
    The only thing is that since the ballrooms are in a public setting and close to the walkway leading to the skytrain, there were other guests that were visiting River Rock peeking in and even a couple walking in to look around which my husband witnessed. That being said, there were signs put up by River Rock that a private event is being held but I guess these were ignored by some of the public. Other than that, we chose River Rock for the convenience of it's location (close proximity to the airport as we had a lot of guests flying in from out of town) and have no regrets. With its good location, helpful staff, and delicious food, you really can't go wrong having your wedding reception at River Rock.

    Picked the right place for our special day!

    Teresa is the best! She’s on top of all the small details, responds to my emails within a couple hours, and caters to my want and need. The wedding package they provide is great, definitely would recommend this place!

    Outstanding

    The River Rock staff did an incredible job for our wedding. Our point of contact, the servers, the bartenders and everyone else involved were nothing short of outstanding. It's difficult to single out any one thing that we were happy with, because the quality of service and ease of communication was amazingly consistent from top to bottom.

    Everyone was friendly, helpful, and masters of what they do. We couldn't have asked for better. I feel that things literally couldn't have gone any better. Absolutely world-class.
