Our wedding was September 30, 2017 and Carmen Cerino and his team were so incredibly wonderful to us! Throughout the planning process they were extremely helpful, we had a lot of questions to which Carmen answered very quickly and without hesitation. The knowledge and experience they brought to the table surpassed all of our expectations which made us very relieved and confident that our day would turn out as perfect as it did. Carrie Cerino's took care of everything we needed from appetizers to cake, to centerpieces, to late night snacks at the end of the reception. All while working within our budget as well! The staff was phenomenal, professional, responsive and truly made the day perfect. The food was tremendous, everyone raved about it, which didn't surprise us based on their reputation for outstanding cuisine! We truly had the perfect reception, could not have dreamed of a better night nor could our guests. We would recommend Carrie Cerino's time and time again without hesitation!
Carmen and his entire staff are wonderful. The reception venue is extremely beautiful and very elegant. Carmen was very accommodating and ensured that everything was perfect from our first meeting all the way through the wedding day. He was always very responsive to our phone calls and requests. During the wedding reception, the staff was very professional. In addition, the whole staff made sure that each guest had everything they needed. I would recommend Carrie Cerino's to anybody looking for a reasonably priced venue with an amazing staff.
Carrie Cerinos was the most beautiful setting for our wedding reception. The staff put our decorations in place just perfectly. The food was absolutely delicious. I highly recommend this place for any formal event!
Carmen was very flexible to work with especially when blending two different cultures together. He and his staff were personable and always willing to listen, makes time for the bride and for the groom. They worked with specifications that we wanted and met all of our expectations. His prices/rates were reasonable and up front with what it would cost us. Because of a coupon I found at the Westside Market we got a free cake which saved us an extra expense. Others venues charged outrageous prices for food and alcohol, but Carrie Cereno's had individual plans to choose from that matched what we could afford with ease. Food was delicious, from the appetizers, through the desserts. When the final bill came, we were overjoyed with how much everything came out to be. By having our reception here, we saved ourselves thousands of dollars in the end.
We were in need of a place that could accommodate family members with special food needs. Carrie Cerino's was the only place that would do this for us. We received nothing but great comments from our guests. The food was excellent and our vegan guests remarked that they had never had such a great meal at other events they had been to. They even took care of our guest with several food allergies! Carmen went out of his way to make sure everything was perfect. It was a memorable evening!
My husband and I recently celebrated our wedding October 6, 2017 at Carrie Cerinos. BEAUTIFUL venue! I knew when I walked in this was going to be the place for my wedding reception. Carmen was beyond helpful through the entire process. He was able to give advice as well as offer any help we needed, and he laid out the entire process in detail from the start. The food was absolutely fantastic! We had the Tuscan chicken and Breaded pork chops which tasted great and everyone loved! Of course the pasta was amazing and guests raved about the oven dutchess style potatoes. We had buffet style and it was served in a very timely and professional manner to all our guests. We chose to do half the ballroom for a more intimate wedding with our number of guests being around 150. It was decorated and lit beautifully. The set up of the room was great, the dance floor was in the middle so all guests are postioned on either side with the bridal table in the front of the room. It is the perfect set up and you have a great view no matter where guests are seated. The price for the venue was very affordable. For the layout of the ballroom, the home-made delicious food, the consumption bar, and the excellent customer service that was provided to us, I cannot say enough about Carmen and what his business has to offer. We will definitely be back to eat in the restaurant regularly and will continue to plan events here in the future. Thank you Carmen for everything you and your staff have done to help make our wedding day one to remember!!
We just had our daughter's wedding reception at Carrie Cerino's and it was wonderful. The food, cake and service was top notch and the grand ballroom was beautiful. Our guests had a great time... many thanks to Carmen and Jo Marie for a stress free day!
We had our wedding reception at carrie cerinos and it was spectacular. The service was excellent. The guests loved the dinner and desserts. The grand ballroom was absolutely beautiful and the guests would not stop talking about how beautiful the grand ballroom was. Carmen made sure that everything went well and exceeded our expectations with the service he provided us. I highly recommend this venue!
great food, delicious cake, huge dance floor, and gorgeous chandeliers
One word. Amazing. Carmen and his staff did an amazing job for our wedding reception. He made the process seamless and everything was perfect. We met with him a few weeks prior to review the reception details and we felt this process was very efficient. We had Carmen create our wedding cake. He is truly an artist and should be very proud of his work. The cake was not only eye pleasing it was delicious. The day before the reception we dropped off our favors and flowers along with our center pieces. Carmen and his team assured us they would take care of setting up the tables and center pieces. They were very accommodating and when our guest arrived everything was placed with precision. It was exactly how we wanted the room to look. We had the prime rib and the chicken marsala for our meal choices. The food was cooked to perfection and everything was timed perfectly. At the end of the night the staff helped us gather our reception items and placed everything in a nice and orderly area. We highly recommend Carrie Cerino's for any special event. You cannot go wrong with him or his staff.
Carmen Cerino and his staff put on a display on how a wedding party, Family and Friends should be treated. The food , of course was excellent. The staff was upbeat and respectful and they knew their job. Carmen went out of his way to upgrade us to the Grand Ballroom because of extenuating circumstances with other party rooms and went around and made his rounds asking guests if everything was ok and if they needed anything . Carmen, Jo, and staff you have my vote and I will recommend Carrie Cerino's Ristorante & Party Center to all my friends. "Bravisimo"
Carrie Cerino's did an AMAZING job on our wedding! We could not have been more pleased! Carmen and Mary Jo were wonderful to work with. Our wedding was for 100 people in the Grand Ballroom. The food was excellent, as only Carrie Cerino's can do! The service wonderful, they really cared about making our day special. We had Carrie Cerino's provide our wedding cake, which, at least five people said it was the best wedding cake they had ever had! They added special touches to the decorations on the main table to match our wedding party. We loved it so much that we are getting re married in the Catholic Church and returning for an afternoon luncheon! Simply the best! The owners, Carmen and Mary Jo Cerino take pride and truly cared about making our day special! Highly recommend Carrie Cerinos if you are planning a wedding!!
Everything was fantastic! The food, cake, set up, atmosphere, etc. everything was great.
Carmen and his staff were top-notch from start to finish! He made our day run smoothly and was very helpful and flexible in the planning process! The food was a hit with all the guests (we had the Prime Rib and Tuscan Chicken as our main entrees and they were both delicious!). The cake that Carmen made was fantastic as well! Would highly recommend this venue for any of your party planning needs! Great food and great staff!!
Carrie Cerinos is a fine dining establishment with outstanding food and a very professional and courteous staff. I would highly this restaurant to anyone looking for a romantic evening out or a wedding reception like we had. Kudos to the owners and the staff.
Wonderful venue for wedding reception or any special occasion! Delicious food! Great Staff!
Absolute perfection across the board! Our guests RAVED about the food from start to finish. I knew it was going to be good, being a long-time customer, but the majority of our guests were from out of town and expecting the usual bland wedding fare. We blew their minds!! The pasta was a big hit. Carmen was a total lifesaver. He worked with us from the very start to make everything as easy as possible. He and his staff went above and beyond to make our lives easier, and they really saved us a ton of time and worry by setting up the room and centerpieces perfectly. Everyone on staff the day of the wedding was so professional and friendly, and the venue itself is perfection. My guests loved the lobby area to have a quieter place to sit and take a break from dancing. It was absolutely worth every single cent, and if I ever host any type of party in the future, it'll be at Carrie Cerino's. If you want a great venue, FABULOUS food, and a family run operation that takes care of your every need, then Carrie Cerino's is the venue for you!!!
carmen went above and beyond to accommodate our needs.
We had our wedding reception here in August. Everything was beyond our expectations! From start to finish Carmen was there to help us with every little detail. The food was amazing ( we had the prime rib & Tuscan chicken ) . We also had our wedding cake made at the Carrie Cerino's bakery. Not only was it made to order just as we designed and was beautiful, it was also moist & delicious with a delicate almond flavor. The pastries were also a huge hit with our guests. The ambiance in the grand ballroom was soothing & lovely. Special thanks to Carmen & all the staff. The service was impeccable! I have been to weddings were the venue was like a 5 star hotel & the food was just horrible. By far, Carrie Cerino's is the total package. The room was beautiful and the food was so great our guests are still talking about it a month later! The value for the quality of food you get is also great. Our guests enjoying themselves was worth every penny and it didn't break the bank. These people have to be doing something right. We had guests who said they had been there for weddings 30 years ago! Keep up the great work & thanks for making our day special!
I loved having my wedding reception at Carrie Cerino's. Carmen was very responsive to any questions I had and was flexible. The grand ballroom is beautiful and the food is great!! Carrie Cerino's is not as expensive as other venues in Cleveland which was a big plus for us. We dropped our decorations off and Carrie Cerino's set them up perfectly! They also boxed everything up for us at the end of the night and we were able to pick it up the next day. They also gave us any open bottles of liquor and the extra meals for the people who did not show up to have as leftovers! I would definitely recommend Carrie Cerino's for anyone on a budget who still wants a formal ballroom and great food!
We had our reception with C Cerino's, and it was the best choice we made for our wedding (other than each other. ;-) ) I can't recommend them highly enough. To start, they were very upfront about cost, and helpful when it came to making all the menu choices (and there were a lot of choices!). They were accommodating about us bringing things ahead of time the day before and picking them up the next day. They also handled our complicated custom centerpieces with no trouble at all. They were very accommodating when our numbers fluctuated. We had a lot more "no" responses than we originally anticipated, but Carmen let us change our number up until 2 days before with no penalty. Then, when there was a family emergency and several of my cousins were unable to come last minute, he let us reduce it even further. We still had to pay for those last-minute cancels, but he sent us home with the food for 3 (generously sized) dinners, which made for delicious leftovers. They also made special arrangements for our vegetarian guests, even when we had an extra surprise vegetarian. The food was delicious, and all of our guests told us so - even my grumpy great aunt who never likes anything! And that was before the dessert trays came out, with all the little mini cakes and cookies you could possibly want. My father in law and brother in law got into a cookie eating contest, which amused all of the other guests. And when no one could eat them all, they sent us home with the extras. Our coworkers had a feast of desserts the next Monday, we didn't have to go begging our mothers and aunts to bake cookies beforehand, and the dessert trays were included in the cost. They also handled our cake for us, going from a couple of photos on the internet, a few decorations, and some vague ideas to something beautiful and delicious that all of our guests complimented us on. At the end, they also boxed up the extra cake for us. All with no cake cutting fee - we paid for the cake, and that was all. Their ballroom was immaculate and beautiful, neutral enough to accommodate just about any theme or colors you could want. And should your wedding and reception not be on the same day (like ours) they even have a changing room for the bride to get ready in, which later doubled as an area for our guests who were nursing mothers. Throughout the entire experience Carmen and his staff were friendly, helpful, and professional. They did all of this and more with a smile, style, and flair... and it was also less expensive than anywhere else we could have gone. Like I said, couldn't recommend them more. Do your reception here, you won't regret it.
Carmen was great at communicating every aspect of the wedding every step of the way with us. He was very personable, friendly, and easy to reach. The food was amazing and the ballroom was beautiful. They were great with not charging for ridiculous things that a lot of other venues squeeze money out of you for. We only paid for liquor bottles that were opened and they didn't charge us for our guests staying late. Was so nice not to have to awkwardly kick people out. I highly recommend the venue.
Carmen did a fantastic job organizing our reception. The large ballroom was remodeled just before our event, and the updates looked great! The food was incredible! The head table was served family-style, guests were all served buffet style, and with a week's notice they did a great job accommodating our guests with medical dietary restrictions. All evening, mini desserts were available at tables throughout the room. We took home all the leftover food and desserts, and any time we take a meal out of the freezer with think back to how wonderful the reception was
My wife and I got married at Carrie cerino's, and not only did they go above and beyond to make sure that the reception was outstanding, but they were nothing short of exceptional when it came to the ceremony. We had a relatively smaller wedding, and weren't really looking for a lengthy church service. So we opted to have the ceremony there, immediately followed by the reception. Carmen was so incredibly sweet, and went over every last aspect of it to make sure they we would still have that perfect, special day without the headaches that typically come with them. It was so simple, easy and convenient. They can provide almost everything you could possibly need, and are clearly pros who take it all very seriously. Despite all the work and effort that they put forward to make everything perfect, we were SHOCKED when all was said and done. The final bill was so affordable! We saved thousands over what we were quoted at other places, (and we all know the final total would have been much higher than the quote.) All that and I haven't even gotten to the incredible food. Whether you're looking to do hors d'oeuvres, buffet or table service, the options Carmen gave us seemed endless. This is a place who clearly takes just as much pride in their food as they do in their customer service. Everything was amazing. So much so that we are having dinner there tonight for our 2 yr anniversary. Thanks again Carmen and crew for everything!!
A place that can make your dreams a realityReviewed on 12/07/2013 stacey w
Where do I begin..... My husband and I were looking for a place to hold our reception, We were renewing our vows and wanted to do it big. My parents had taken me there since I was 12 for my birthday every year it was my Daddy favorites place so there was no doubt we wanted it there. Carmen is the most sweetest person to help you make your vision come true. The 2 rooms we had plenty of space and the dance floor was perfect. Our guest raved about the food and still are 5 weeks later. We had a sit down service and the staff that took care of us was out of this world. They would come to us through out the night and ask how things were. The sit down service offers pastries and to be honest I was not sure if that would be enough for people along with the wedding cake. Boy was I wrong. The whole meals portions were unbelievable. Our guest kept saying they had never had such large servings in their lives! Carrie Cerino's definitely made our happily ever after come true.
