BORGATA WEDDING AND EVENT VENUE
I'm searching for banquet halls with packages around the $80 price range --- it's been tough for a Saturday evening wedding reception for about 300-350 guests.
I came across BORGATA WEDDING AND EVENT VENUE in Vaughan and their reviews seem pretty good.
Their packages start at $68.95 a person.
Has anyone attended a wedding there recently? Any feedback about food quality, service, ambiance would be really appreciated!!
I booked my wedding there (350 - 450 people) for next year. It's been difficult securing a location with a decent price that will accommodate that many people. We visited a few places that we liked in the area but there was either a potential issue with flexible capacity or with staffing.
The reviews are good but for some reason few banquet halls have negative reviews. They are part of a larger entity (Hospitality and Beyond), which made us feel more comfortable, the hall is elegant and chic without being gaudy, and we liked their choices for the menus and the professional service we were treated to (we spoke with Marco). He helped us build our own menu which came to more than their listed prices, but included all the things we wanted. We can also change it as the wedding date approaches.
I'm hoping to go in for a tasting in the coming months, but I'm not worried about the food based on the reviews I've read online and the scope of events they usually hold there.
Thanks for your reply. We ended up choosing a different hall because Borgata didn't have our availability in the end. They had seemed pretty flexible and accommodating though - there was another couple already tentatively holding our date (they ended up booking).
We were communicating with Marco over email who was awesome, very timely, responsive and flexible. For our appointment we had 'Joe' who was ok but just seemed a little withdrawn and timid.
I didn't like the fact that the tastings were only once every couple months. We couldn't wait so long to do our tasting because we were holding our date at another venue.
I'm sure the food will be great and their package options were pretty extensive.
All the best on your wedding date!
