About

Riverside Banquet Halls is a sophisticated wedding venue located in Richmond, British Columbia. Boasting ample event spaces, this multifaceted and charming property has the capacity to host a range of celebrations. Owing to its contemporary and stylish design, it is easy to imagine how diverse events can feel at home surrounded by refined elegance.

Facilities and Capacity

Indoor space can easily be set aside for the all-important ceremony. Couples are free to join hand-in-hand among interior splendour as they exchange vows, swap rings, and become official newlyweds. The scene can be set with covered seating for invited guests, aisle markers, and floral decor. At the head of the room, the couple of honour can stand proudly as the eyes of the room fall upon them. Overhead, European-style chandeliers add light and charm to the scene. For the reception, clients who book Riverside Banquet Halls can take their pick of five function rooms. As the festivities approach, the excitement can build as guests savour adult beverages before the anticipated meal.

Riverside Signature Hall has the largest capacity of all the onsite spaces as it can accommodate between 300 and 800 people. Soft carpeting, chairs, and round tables are complemented by refined light fixtures, audiovisual setup, and a dance floor. Here, everyone can come together as they share culinary pleasures and bask in the day’s overall ambience. Riverside Grand boasts the second-largest capacity as it can welcome between 300 and 600 invitees, depending on the layout. When laid out with tables and chairs, everyone can take their places as they await the newlyweds' grand entrance. A sweetheart table beckons the couple of honour to sit as the festivities unfold around them. A stage also provides somewhere for the entertainment to set up after the last speech has been delivered and plates have been cleared away. Elsewhere, the Riverside Banquet Hall, Riverside Palace, and Richview Banquet Hall may also be availed of at Riverside Banquet Halls.

Services Offered

Dedicated wedding planners are keen to do justice to your big day, and they are happy to tend to as many details as possible. What’s more, an extensive inventory of event enhancements may be provided so that the space is appropriately designed. These include backdrops, centrepieces, furniture, and much more. For added fun, a photo booth may also be provided. For cuisine, an in-house team may make themselves available to craft delicious treats inspired by a range of international destinations. For added convenience, outside vendors are also welcome to add extra personality to Riverside Banquet Halls.

    Do not book this hall

    I will be making a longer BAD review on yelp and Google. This hall is THE WORST. If you are even thinking of this hall DONT EVEN BOTHER. I booked this hall back in 2019 (my wedding at the time was scheduled for 2020). The first meeting went fine, they made us feel like we made such a good decision in choosing this hall, told us we would be stress free. THAT WAS FAR FROM THAT. Not only are they unprofessional but it’s a complete money grab, and a lot of broken promises. They are the worst communicators, shoot down ur ideas for UR WEDDING. They charge you a RIDICULOUS plate fee if you choose an outside catering company, the decor prices are also ridiculous since the hall is already so pretty. YOU WILL NOT BE SAVING ANY MONEY. When I had to postpone bc of covid, I had decor I had chosen and when everything started to open up again they SOLD EVERYTHING. I had to choose different decor that didn’t even match my wedding theme. They even made fun of the colour pink not being a wedding theme. They got rid of the chairs I wanted (bc they had to sell it) so i had to choose the only type of chairs they had which costed me $4 per chair (i had a 220 person wedding) You also have to buy ur own candles (if you choose to have candles as center pieces), the selection for center pieces is an absolute joke, they make u pay for wine glasses, and won’t let u use anybody else for that. You have to bring supplies like seating chart, welcome sign, table numbers, liq, DAY of your wedding they wouldn’t let me drop it off before that. There was so many things that were wrong with this hall. The managers are rude, Sue is THE WORST to deal with. Overall If I could give everything a ZERO I would. They only care about your money, they make fun of you for being on a budget, they try to squeeze every last penny out of you. I don’t want this to happen to any other bride, so DO NOT book this hall.

    No service, but keeps your money

    Due to the pandemic and rules we cancelled with this venue back in early 2020. They refused to give our deposit of $4000.00 back. Eventually put in agreement in place stating they’ll provide 50% refund in increments of $250.00 and have been avoiding any type of payment since rules have lifted and completely ignore my inquiries. The owners are very unprofessional and have stated they refuse to read emails as it’s a waste of their time because it’s not making them any money. They also refuse to acknowledge the other part of their agreement and have not yet acknowledged their dismissal of it.

    I highly recommend you stay away from this company as I’m not the only one who has experienced this.

    I checked out this venue for my wedding reception and even though I ended up choosing a different venue, I still hired them to do the drapery at my new venue. I dealt with Bobby and he was very professional throughout the entire process. The drapery looked amazing and I have absolutely no complaints!

    Just answering couples of the reviews about Riverside Banquet halls. We're professional and do the best for the clients.
    Berina who is advising brides to look for other venues ended up getting married at Riverside Palace banquet hall. How funny is this?
    We honored a large sum of the deposit for the cancelled event toward her new date. We went way beyond our roll as a hall operators to help the couple.
    How bad are we?
    We realize you cannot please everybody as some people cannot be happy

    I hope that every bride that wants a stress-free wedding, will re-consider booking with Riverside Banquet Halls. There are many complaints but number one would have to be that you can't trust them. Bobby Ghirra the manager and Sue Halabi the Event manager will make verbal promises which they don't hold. I don't know how many times I had to go back and look through the wedding package to make sure that they didn't charge me for something I didn't want. In the end they still ended up charging me for stuff I did not ask for. They also don't have consistent hall rental rates. One day it will be $2000 the other day it will be $3000. I wish I had read reviews before booking with them. We had to reschedule our wedding due to a death in the family three days before the wedding and they pretty much said tough stuff. I am in the process of doing an interview on a news station so that no other bride has to go through what I went through. Please do your research and get EVERYTHING in writing, do not trust anything they promise, you will only get disappointed.

    On the day of my wedding the food was great. However, I had more issues when dealing with them then I had originally expected. I got a perfect quote in the beginning and went in to see the venue before booking and was given a new quote that was 3000.00 higher with NO changes! After I complained and worked out a reasonable medium, we had to deal with plenty of unprofesssional issues similar to the first. On the day of my wedding they were still setting up as my guests were arriving, and if not for my coordinator they would not had finished in time. Once my wedding ceremony had started the service, food, bartender, and dj (all supplied by the venue) were great, but I will not be booking them ever again! To all the future brides out there I can tell you that there is enough to stress out about and the added stress is unneccessary. Day of was great but they have no idea how to run a business.
