September 7, 2013 was the date of my Wedding ceremony and reception. From the beginning it was the perfect venue to host my wedding. Castaway was the first stop on our list in September 2012 on our venue scouting trip. We went to Sportsman lounge, Odyssey, Shanghai Reds, Orange Hill, but nothing could beat Castaway. The wedding packages they offered were right in our budget. Danielle (on site coordinator) was flexible, personable, and very easy to work with. She was timely with e-mails, phone calls, on site meetings, worked well with our wedding coordinators (The Double Knot,) coordinated the food tasting event, answered calls from family members and the countless other little things she made accommodations for. Danielle really made our decision easy with Castaway. The Wedding day came and went in a flash, but the ceremony and reception went flawless in our eyes. The food and service during the night was great. We had a choice of 5 appetizers, 3 Entrees (Filet Minion, Salmon, and Mushroom Ravioli), 2 hour open bar and cake. Not a complaint in the room. Castaway has a view of LA and Burbank unlike any place else that helped to seal the deal. It was a picture perfect wedding day. I highly recommend Castaway to any bride and groom. Thank you Danielle and Castaway.

The Castaway has very tasty food and the wait-staff at the reception was very attentive. They wedding and reception were beautiful.
We had a small wedding (~50 people) so we were in the main restaurant area in the private Lagoon room and the ceremony was on the patio. The patio was lovely for the smaller group, I did notice in my video that there are a couple of shots where you can see waitstaff on the other side setting up. I think, though, if we had used a "paid professional" videographer instead of a friend they might have been more willing to tell the restaurant staff to move.
The planning process was a little rough at first. Steve was quite flakey (as has been mentioned in other reviews), missing meetings and not returning phone calls. But he retired and Laura took over, straightened everything out, and is a very talented event coordinator.

My then fiancee and I chose the Castaway in Burbank for one reason and one reason only, convenience. We live literally 5 minutes away from there! Having said that, I loved everything about having our special day at this location. The food was great, the drinks were incredible, and the view was amazing. The people we dealt with were very helpful and friendly leading up to the day as well as the day of. We chose the top of the line package and truly feel we got a great deal. I would definitely recommend the Castaway for any special occasion

The staff was completely helpful! We loved Steve Karimi (he was amazing with working out all the details). The food is wonderful as well! Very European vibe! Beautiful weather and view!
