    Our wedding here was beyond perfect! Teresa and Sarah were incredibly helpful and patient, even with my millions of emails. Our guests were blown away by the "grand reveal" which was so different from every other venue we saw and was a massive selling point to my husband and I. ... View more The food was amazing and the service was seamless. My husband and I used to see movies in theater almost every week when we were dating, so the venue could not have been more fitting for us. We are ecstatic with how the day went and would definitely recommend other couples to check out Eglinton Grand if they are looking for a unique space!

    Thank you so much for everything! The event was so wonderful and was even more than everything I hoped it would be. All of the staff were amazing and went way above and beyond and were so accommodating to make sure that the evening was so special and stress free! You have such ... View more such a wonderful bunch of people that are working there, and you could really feel the love from them and their passion for what they do! All of my guests have been commenting on how wonderful the food was (they could not believe they had 3 perfectly cooked meats served for their main course) and how unique of a space it is (They loved the marquee, red carpet, posters, lighting, screen, first dance, separate cocktail area), and overall just what a wonderful time they had. I also really loved that this venue was private and that there is only one event per night. Thank you so much for everything again!!! I would highly recommend The Eglinton Grand to anyone looking for a venue. You won't regret it!! My only advice to future events is not to use the Best Western Roehampton for your guests. Their valet damaged one of my guest's vehicles and they were very sneaky about the whole situation and are being extremely unhelpful and very dismissive of the whole issue. So I would save yourself the trouble and book a different hotel.
