    I am delighted to write this review for Eglinton Grand and share our wonderful experience. We held our wedding at the Grand on July 1, 2018. Staff was amazing from pre-wedding planning up to day of wedding and post-wedding. All staff were extremely professional, punctual and ... View more polite to our guests. The staff was attentive in all aspects and catered to each guests’ expectation. Food was excellent and so was the atmosphere. Their preferred vendors are also phenomenal to deal with – (Jason Applebaum DJ, Soul Power). We are grateful to have received such amazing services and assistance from the Grand, they made it easy for us to plan a venue. Not to mention, Sarah & Teresa - Event Manager, where amazing helping us every step of the way. Would highly recommend any event to be held at the Eglinton Grand.

    The MAGICAL Eglinton Grand

    My husband and I were initially the big fan of golf clubs to throw our wedding party! But "The Eglinton Grand" was the only indoor place, where we entered, we just said "This is it... No more outdoor wedding... WE WANT THIS". This venue is veryyyyyy beautiful and unique; and if ... View more you want to have a REAL elegant wedding, this can be your number one option. Talking about the staff, they are super nice, patient, and most importantly helpful and responsive to any possible concern. In terms of services, there is no word except EXCELLENT. You can ask for anything and you will get the best possible service. And about the food... YUMMY!!! The chef is a PRO!!!!! Every single of our guests were amazed with the tastes and the variety of the foods! Thank you EGLINTON GRAND for making our night SUPER MAGICAL and a night to always remember with a biggg smile :) Yasi & Armin

    Our gorgeous fifty shades of pink wedding at The Eglinton Grand

    We got married in June 2018 at the Eglinton Grand. It was amazing, phenomenal, beyond my expectations and money well spent. The venue was so helpful to all my vendors (for the cake, band, decor, flowers, love sign, photographers and planner/coordinators). To be completely honest, ... View more honest, my husband was the one who convinced me EG would be a great party. I was originally more inclined to book a lakeside venue but after discussions, we appreciated the grand reveal first dance (AMAZING feature), marquee outdoor sign, midtown location, stand alone venue and the extended 2am bar we were able to secure!! We had to add a few a-la-carte alcohol items to accommodate our guests which Sarah was able to assist with. Ultimately, our night was amazing...the food was delicious (my favourite was the antipasto with prosciutto and rib eye/tiger shrimp entree and chocolate pyramid). The fazoletti with ricotta was amazing (all our guests raved about it). Teresa was very helpful with the initial discussions/booking, Joe was awesome the entire evening and Sarah was fantastic in understanding our needs/changes. The doorman was also so kind and helpful, helping us load our car at the end of the evening. We had several changes closer to our wedding (because it is very difficult to know all the details a year in advance at time of booking)...and Sarah was as helpful as can be. We wish we could re-live our wedding night and would definitely recommend this venue if you want a beautiful, fun and memorable evening.

    Amazing venue for a dream wedding

    This past June, my husband and I got married at the Eglinton Grand and were very impressed by the venue’s decor and staff’s professionalism. After scouting many other potential locations, the Eglinton Grand was a clear choice for us. Not only did the venue itself possess an ... View more elegant vibe but it was weather-proof for the day’s activities as it was all indoor. Having the luxury of having a real vintage marquee sign displaying our wedding message was very neat and all our guests loved it (not to mention that we were able to customize two movie posters to display) The venue’s event planners (Teresa and Sarah) were key in the planning process as they were able to bring to our attention many items that we had not even considered. Highly recommend anyone to at least attend their open houses as you will first handedly naturally feel as they are really experienced and have thought out anything and everything possible at a wedding. All our guests were absolutely charmed by the venue and all it’s special characteristics. From the red carpet entrance to the grand hall, every small detail made sure to add to a perfect wedding celebration ambience. Can’t emphasize how much we both loved the venue. We were both extremely satisfied with our choice to celebrate our special day at the Eglinton Grand. We wished we could re-live it all over again.

    A night to remember

    The Eglinton Grand went above our expectations for what our wedding could be. From the moment we spoke with Theresa through the final details with Sarah, we knew we were in good hands. The entire staff helped my husband and I have the most perfect night with our friends and ... View more family. We went with the buffet and everyone commented that it was the best wedding food they'd ever had. Lots of variety for even the most picky! They even work with you to make sure that any guests with food intolerance/allergies are accommodated. The red carpet entrance to the venue and the personalized marquee (along with other options for personalization throughout the ball room) really made planning this fun. Great features, beautiful venue... Highly recommended, over and over again!
