    Outstanding!

    Wow! We had our wedding at the Avenue Banquet Hall on August 8th, 2021, and we have to say our wedding was perfect. The banquet hall staff and Party Crew Entertainment delivered an absolutely outstanding night. Our friends and family were blown away. The ceremony and hall spaces were beautiful, the food was delicious, and everything turned out exactly how we wanted.

    Throughout our time planning the wedding, Julia (@avenuebanquethall) and Emil (@partycrewentertainment) were always available, easy to work with, flexible, adaptable, and demonstrated an understanding and appreciation of the current situation with COVID-19 restrictions. We could not have asked for a better team to work with to plan our event.

    We are truly grateful for how everything turned out and the major role that the Avenue Banquet Hall and Party Crew Entertainment played. Emil and Julia, our hats off to you! We strongly recommend the Avenue Banquet Hall and Party Crew Entertainment for events in Toronto!

    Ilya and Sophie

    Professional meets Personable

    From the first meeting until the day of the event it was a pleasure doing business with The Avenue Banquet Hall. Emil and Julia are great their attention to detail was comforting. Their staff were professional getting everything organized and working the event like a Swiss watch. We had our event in the Boulevard Room, it was perfectly transformed by the staff into a work of art. The food was excellent our guests kept raving about it. The venue was competitively priced. I would recommend this venue whole heartedly.

    The Avenue Banquet Hall's reply:

    Thank you for the kind words, the opportunity to work with you and for trusting us with your event. Looking forward to hosting you again in the future.

    Well there is a first time for everything

    I have never written a review of a banquet hall. The reason for this is that, when you are feeding a large group of people, the quality of the food inevitably goes down. This was not the case this past Saturday when my daughter got married. I was impressed by the calibre of the food and the price of it. We started off with appetizers which included Spring Rolls, Breaded Shrimps, Oriental Noodles (in little tiny Chinese food containers that were so cute) Satay, and my personal faves the Insalata Caprese on a stick (AWESOME). Then came the Hummus with Harissa Paste, this little detail elevated the Hummus and it is something that I going to have to try at home myself. The next course was a slender slice of cucumber surrounding some greens in dressing, some cherry tomatoes and a crepe stuffed with mushrooms. I must say that this little crepe was the highlight of the night for me. Then came the meat... The steak you could cut with a butter knife, it was incredibly well prepared (my guess is that they sous vide the lot of them) It was perfect. The chicken breast beside it was also juicy and very well prepared. Root veg included Potatoes, Beets, Zucchini and roasted carrots. Desert was a mini lava cake flanked by half a stewed pear. I do not think there was a bad comment on the food to be had.

    The hall was decorated by digital video projectors which were putting seamless vistas all around the room. This venue is under new ownership and if you are looking to host an event, even in this tenuous time, you should look in on these folks.

    The Perfect Petite Ceremony

    Emil and Julia from The Avenue were ABSOLUTELY amazing. After dealing with the stress of covid-19 and having to adjust our wedding plans, they helped us to put together the perfect intimate ceremony so that we could finally get married. They went above and beyond in all aspects. On very short notice they took care of everything for us and created a stunning atmosphere with beautiful lighting, decor, and musical accompaniment that was even greater than we envisioned. They were so kind and personable and such a pleasure to work with - we would highly recommend them! Thank you so much for making our special day so perfect!

    The Avenue Banquet Hall's reply:

    Hi Stephanie,

    Thank you very much for your feedback. It was a pleasure meeting you. We are so happy for the both of you and wish you all the very best.

    Overall fantastic experience and quality

    Marla is just a delight - from her demeanor, to her advice, to her recommendations. And the execution on the day-of was fabulous. Everything went according to plan. She informed us of all fees, and gave honest suggestions about everything. I got most of my other vendors through her as well! We had a fully kosher russian jewish wedding for about 100 guests.

    Beautiful venue!

    Great venue! Avenue Banquet Hall is fairly set with a lot of the ways they do things, but they were flexible with things that counted, and that's really the only negative I have to say. The DJ they recommended did a great job, the food is AMAZING, the service is impeccable, and the facilities are fantastic.

    A few hiccups but would highly recommend!

    Marla was excellent and beyond accommodating. Day of however, The bar tender refused to serve even an iced tea or pop without ID. Had to go bridezilla on several staff just to get served non alch- beverages. DJ that was recommended DJ ADAM T....was horrible. I sent him all the music to play and gave a list of must play, he played things I SAID DO NOT PLAY and had many issues with mic being unable to hear speeches. Was very unimpressed about that. The Venue itself...Can not speak higher of them, best Food EVER out of the park! Thanks Marla.

    The Avenue Banquet Hall's reply:

    So happy that everyone enjoyed the venue and the food.
    The bartenders are smart serve and must by law make sure that a guest is over 19 to be served alcohol. I'm not sure that you are aware but the LCBO sends undercover people to randomly walk into establishments and check that no underage guests are being served alcohol. They are within their rights to ask for ID - it is to protect our venue and your guests. Melissa, I'm sorry if your guests were annoyed but it is for their own protection.
    I feel bad about Adam - he doesn't usually get it wrong. That sucks!
    I will certainly pass your comments to him.
    Thank you for the opportunity to host your wedding.
    We wish you all the best
    Marla Kay
    btw- Melissa - you rocked that dress!!!

    Marla has your back

    This is severally delayed but here we go (we got married September 21st 2018 :D )

    To talk about The Avenue Banquet Hall, I need to talk about Marla first.
    All the things you read about people, about their background and years and experience sometimes aren’t really accurate. When you read that about Marla, it’s a thousand times more.

    Marla’s professionalism yet good hearted-ness (is that a word?) stands out as soon as you meet her. We had a small budget, looking for a place that could assure us and help us out through the way because hiring anyone more than that would have cost more than we had. We had our ceremony and reception at this hall. The Avenue was the first place we looked at that included the ceremony room in the price. Because under Marla’s ideology, why not, you’re already here and you're barely in that room anyway.

    Marla and her staff were stars.
    And Marla put up with me and our 300+ thread emails of any random question that popped into mind within the hour it was sent. She was there from step 1 to 1000 and I couldn’t be more grateful. Planning a wedding is stressful, but if you need her assistance she was there with years of experience as a planner and anything else you needed.

    As for the hall itself, it was lovely. Everything was set up without a hitch, all my instructions were followed perfectly and for the parts that didn’t have any instruction they were set up beautifully. The food was amazing (though we didn’t get to eat as much as we wanted to because apparently when you’re the Bride and Groom it’s difficult to make time for that…)
    Our wedding was beautiful, Marla was amazing (who also led us to our fantastic photographer George from Isaacimages – she has a million contacts to choose from and help you get your foot in all the doors) the day was perfect, and even after 9 months I still miss emailing her for no reason at all.

    I hope, if you decide to go here, you have the same experience if not better. They are a really great team and they are really there for you. No sneakiness, no hidden prices. Everything is straightforward, and if you want to be a guest to your own wedding she can make it happen.
    Thank you so much!

    The Avenue Banquet Hall-review July 28 2018

    There are no words that I can use to describe how grateful my husband and I are for Marla and her team at the Avenue banquet Hall. Their service and professionalism was beyond more than words I can explain. Highly highly recommended! Thank you Marla!
