Chateau was absolutely PHENOMENAL! I seriously cannot recommend them enough! The food was delicious, and Amanda and her entire staff were fantastic and so helpful-- simply amazing! The ballroom was beautiful, and we got SO many complements! Also, the amount of things you get for your money is unbeatable!
I can't say enough good things about Chateau. The space is beautiful and the food is soo good! We got so many compliments on the food. You also get a lot for what you pay for. Amanda and our attendant were great to work with. They were so professional, friendly and took care of anything we needed. Despite bad weather leading up to the ceremony, I wasn't stressed because I knew we were in such good hands. I'd recommend Chateau to anyone :)
I am so happy that we chose to have our wedding at Chateau! The venue is beautiful and the staff was a pleasure to work with. Amanda (the wedding coordinator) made everything so easy and stress free. Chateau takes care of everything and makes sure that the bride and groom feel special. They even have attendants for the bride and groom and their parents. Our attendant Evelyn was amazing! She took care of us all night and we never had an empty drink. Chateau is very inclusive in that you don't have to do much else for your reception. The cost per head included the venue, the food, the drinks, as well as a cake credit for the wedding cake and grooms cake! It took a lot of the stress off of us and allowed us to enjoy the wedding planning much more. I couldn't have imagined our wedding anywhere else! Chateau is the best there is!
Chateau was so amazing!! Amanda, the wedding coordinator is excellent and makes your day perfect!! Fully recommend! And the food is awesome!
Phenomenal!! Chateau was the absolute best decision that we made during our wedding planning process. Every step flowed seamlessly from the moment we booked a walked-through to the moment they loaded the last gift into our car after the reception. They take care of every little detail, we didn't have to worry about a thing. The place is beautiful, the staff is attentive and professional and the food and drinks were to die for! Everyone who attended our event was blown away with the elegance, food and service. Amanda was phenomenal and our personal wait staff was phenomenal. If I got to redo my entire wedding, I would still choose Chateau! We had a blast!
I can't imagine having a better reception than the one I had at Chateau. The set up and ballroom was beautiful, the staff & attendees were wonderful, and we had so many compliments from our guests! The guest favorite was by far the food - you had such great, authentic New Orleans food and had so many selections to choose from. Your money goes a long way with Chateau and everything was top-quality. I can't think of a single thing that I would change. Thank you Chateau for making my wedding night unforgettable!
Excellent venue to have your wedding! Wonderful food, wonderful coordinator and staff, very spacious, and very beautiful! We were extremely pleased and had an amazing time! 💕👌🏼
I highly recommend Chateau Golf & Country Club for a wedding reception. Amanda Frichter was an amazing hostess. She was on top of everything and that made everything go smooth. The food was amazing and the fact that they keep coming until the end makes it even better. Perfect.
Everything was amazing. The staff was great and catered to our every move. I couldn't have imagined getting married anywhere else. They made our day spectacular.
Amazing wedding venue! Great food, beautiful decorations, incredible staff!
I had my wedding and reception at Chateau on March 19, 2016. They did an excellent job, I couldn't have asked for better service or atmosphere and especially food. Everyone had an excellent time and I will be recommending Chateau to many others.
Chateau is going to give you the most bang for your buck.. Both ballrooms are beautiful and staff is helpful and attentive. However, my reason for not giving five stars is because Chateau broke a center piece I rented and claims they did not. I know it must have been someone on their end because the center piece was in tact when I dropped it off to them. I then had to pay for this center piece as they refused to do so. Also Gambinos did our cakes and they dropped off the cakes and the ring pull cards. Chateau never put them out with our cakes and simply "misplaced" them. As I paid for these it upset me that my girls weren't able to get them with their ring pulls.
Couldn't be happier with Chateau. They were my favorite vendor of the entire wedding. The food, of course, was delicious and beautifully displayed. The service was impeccable and the attendants were at our side throughout the reception. Pictures at the venue turn out beautiful and there are many photo op locations. The staff is incredible and they really make your big day even more special.
Just hosted a Bridal Shower at Chateau this weekend! Everything was AMAZING from the food to the room set up and we can't forget the amazing service! The bridal package that they have is a great design, the right amount of food and the table set up is beautiful! I would definitely recommend this venue to ANYONE!
I had my ceremony and reception at chateau this past September and it was amazing! The attendants were incredible I never had to worry about anything, Peggy is amazing! Everyone raved about the food and how beautiful everything was. You get the most for your money here!!
You cannot go wrong with ChateauReviewed on 10/04/2015 Michelle A
From day one, planning with Chateau was extremely easy. They took care of everything. I initially booked here because I had been to several other weddings here and they were all beautiful. While looking around, it was also one of the better deals financially around the New Orleans area. Elle was very friendly and easy to work with. The food was outstanding! The attendants made sure that we always had drinks in our hands and that we were always where we needed to be. The wedding was perfect, and many of my guests raved about Chateau!!
Beyond all expectationsReviewed on 8/23/2015 Carlee V
We could not have asked for anything more. From the food to the service, everything went beyond our expectations. The staff at Chateau helped handle every request with service, set up, and overall presentation and execution! We are so thankful for all that they did for our wedding to make it so beautiful, memorable, and fabulous!
AMAZING!! Elle was such a pleasure to deal with. She helped make everything come together and run smoothly. The food was delicious. The next day I had people tell me how delicious the food was. I would go with them all over again!
AWESOME!Reviewed on 3/25/2015 Mary M
Chateau really does do EVERYTHING! They made my reception planning so easy. Every one who attended our wedding raved about how great the food was, and how beautiful the ballroom was. Also, they have name brand liquor, so everyone was happy. I would recommend Chateau to anyone looking for a reception location that doesn't feel like a "reception hall" and for an awesome price!!
Absolutely obsessedReviewed on 3/02/2015 Danielle W
Chateau is by far, the best value for your money- amazing service, gorgeous atmosphere, perfect space, delicious food- I could go on and on. We wish we could have our wedding there all over again! There were a few things the attendants did with our favors and grooms cake that we weren't happy with but otherwise, we LOVED having our wedding at Chateau!
Awesome!Reviewed on 12/01/2014
Chateau made my wedding reception absolutely wonderful! The food is amazing, all my guests raved about it! You can't go wrong!
Wedding of my dreams!Reviewed on 11/09/2014 Gretchen B
Chateau Golf & Country Club provided us the wedding of our dreams and even more! The food was fantastic, the atmosphere was fun, the room looked AMAZING, and the service was absolutely flawless. It was everything we had hoped for and more. Our guests had so many compliments about Chateau and their staff. Michelle and Elle were awesome to work with, they made sure everything was perfect for us and they were so helpful and patient through the entire process. We can't thank everyone at Chateau enough. We would highly recommend them to anyone!
Love this venue!!!Reviewed on 10/31/2014 Claire M
I had such an amazing experience working with the everyone at Chateau. They are extremely helpful & went above and beyond to make my day perfect! The event coordinator and her assistant, Elle and Ashley, were great to work with! I would highly recommend this venue to anyone!!
Fabulous food, service and quality!Reviewed on 10/30/2014 Kristine C
I could not have been more pleased with this venue! They offered A LOT for the price, gave us outstanding service, were flexible with us on number of guests, and even offered some advice on vendors such as DJ and photography. My wedding was almost 6 months ago, and I am STILL getting compliments on how great the food was and how pretty the venue was. My wedding was during the day, and the view out of all the windows in the large ballroom was fantastic -- the golf course on one side, the pool on the other. You can't fully appreciate that view at night! And the options that they offer for open bar, included in the price, are amazing. They were priced much better than any of the venues in New Orleans; all the others I looked at didn't include the open bar and didn't offer all the food choices that Chateau did. I originally planned to choose a venue in uptown New Orleans, but after seeing how much more I could get for less cost at Chateau, I went with Chateau. And I'm so glad I did! The service on my wedding day far exceeded my expectations. My groom and I were totally taken care of, and our parents also received excellent treatment. My dad is hard to please, and he was gushing about how the server who was assigned to him kept bringing him food and drinks and asking him if he needed anything. I simply cannot say enough about this venue and the people who work there. Thank you, Chateau, for making my special day so perfect!
Successful Wedding Reception for 400 peopleReviewed on 10/21/2014 Lori E
Chateau was perfect from the moment we arrrived until the end of my daughter's wedding reception. Ashley was so very accomodating, she was always eager to help answer all of our questions, which we had many of phone calls back and forth to one another for months, we had many visits with her as well to go over all the details; I can't say enough about how perfect everything was from the food to the service, etc. It accomodated so many guests and I was worried we would run out of food and we did not! Chateau made the whole process so easy. Many guests complimented us on the food for weeks after the wedding and how nice everything was and the room was spacious and elegant and what great service they felt at Chateau; We had the reception in the grand ball room, it was beautiful. The dance floor is huge which is what you need when you have a large crowd! Lots of seating too, we opted for the smaller tables around the room;
