North Banquet Hall Recommendations
Hello T.O. Chowhounders,
I'm looking for banquet hall food reviews in your fair city - please help my wedding food selection avoid becoming an unmitigated train wreck. I am a Montreal expat living in Saskatoon and getting married in Toronto next year. Good times.
Because of where my fiancée lives (Vaughan) and the size of our wedding (~400!), we're pretty much limited methinks to the banquet halls in the area. This will be a culturally mixed Assyrian-Iraqi and Québécois-American wedding, our budget per person is not very high due the huge number of attendees, and we are fully aware that we can't make everyone happy.
Of the many halls we visited, Supreme Banquet Centre, La Borgata and The Avenue are the ones we felt provided the best service with the nicest facilities and most reasonable prices. More importantly, we felt comfortable that they could tailor a Middle Eastern / Mediterranean / Continental menu to suit everyone without it turning into a flavor fiasco. Antipasto, Hors d'oeuvres, pasta, kebobs + rice or biryani, taboulé, hummus, etc.
We are going to be choosing one over the next week. I can go into more details about what we're getting at each one, but it's all fairly similar. Has anyone been to an event at Supreme, Borgata or The Avenue? How was the food?

I'm planning my wedding for spring of next year and the three venues you listed are actually in my list as well. Did anyone ever reply to your thread and if so, what were the general opinions? And, if you don't mind me asking, what venue did you end up choosing and how was the food and service?
I know this might be a lot of info, but I'd REALLY appreciate your help.
Thanks a lot,
