    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!

    Amazing Budget-Friendly Venue

    From the moment we walked into the venue, we knew we are in good hands. Marla has a lot of wedding planning experience and is extremely responsive and helpful. The venue looks very nice and clean. It's a single-event venue and is available for the entire day regardless if the ceremony is held there. There is no hidden charge such as tasting fee, corkage fee, room rental fee, or cake-cutting fee. And don't even get me started on the food. We got the dual entree menu and OMG there is SO MUCH FOOD! Based on our guests' feedback, food is delicious and we had leftover late-night desserts (packed to go). The venue itself doesn't provide too much decoration, but Marla has a lot of vendors she can recommend. All this at a very affordable comparing to some of the other venues I have visited. I highly recommend this place for couples looking for budget-friendly wedding venues or company gathering/birthday parties.
