Ali and Rob had wanted an intimate restaurant atmosphere for their reception and Coast definitely delivers. It is a picture postcard perfect venue with stunning views of Lake Michigan and situated on one of the loveliest spots in Milwaukee.
om the moment we met Roxann at the wedding show in January we knew Coast and its staff was the venue for a beautiful event. With enthusiasm and professionalism Roxann had clearly conveyed what our choices were and she made it easy to make decisions for a wonderful day.
Deanna was a joy to work with because she was so promptly responsive to all emails and phone calls. Her patience and excellent listening skills made this mother of the bride so at ease and I knew at all times during the planning process that Deanna had taken care of all aspects of the event. She worked very hard to complete the final contract to accommodate our schedule and that was very much appreciated.
Although there were some staffing changes at Adorn, we were able to work through the changes and the staff created some beautiful floral pieces that were exactly what Ali had requested and actually exceeded our expectations. So lovely!
The wedding day was wonderful, free of stress because of the Coast staff. The food and drinks were amazing. Delicious appetizers, yummy entrees and even the cutest desserts made for a happy celebration for our guests. The servers were efficient and friendly. Rob would like to give a special thank you to Katie for her thoughtful service all night long. He really appreciated Katie's attention to details and her making sure everyone was well taken care of during the evening. Mc Kenna also did a fine job to make sure the night went off without a hitch and she succeeded. Ali would especially like to thank her for getting her through the kitchen for a secret trip to the ladies room before the ceremony. Whew! Thanks, Mc Kenna!
What a wonderful team you have assembled for executing beautiful, carefree events. We could not be happier with the process and the fabulous final outcome, a gorgeous wedding!

I was happy that Zilli Hospitality group is all inclusive because that makes things much less stressful.
My husband and I received so many compliments on how beautiful our venue was and that the food was amazing.
The staff did a wonderful job making sure that as the bride and groom we had enough to eat, and even saved a plate of hors d’oeuvres from cocktail hour for us to enjoy since we were busy taking photos. They did a great job asking us throughout the night if we needed anything, even if it was just a refill from the bar.

and unique our venue was. The food was outstanding (even better than at the tastings), the service was prompt, and the view of the lake and downtown truly can't be beat. It is such a gem! Our contacts, Roxann and Jessica were knowledgeable and accommodating. The only complications that we ran into along the way were confusions about what was/not included in the contract language, complexities with requiring to put a tent on hold and cancel in advance (and receive a refund after the wedding) and version controls between documents. There were items that were agreed upon and settled that did not filter through to the final contract so we found yourselves always doing a very detailed review of everything to look for mistakes. Overwhelmingly though, we are so thankful for Coast and Zilli for making our wedding so special.
Side story - when we were unable to get our favorite beer (Oberon) due to seasonality, Roxann made a special stop and brought us a 6-pack on our wedding day. Truly above and beyond and such a sweet gesture!

We got so many compliments from our guests regarding the venue, the decor, and the food.
My one only thing, which I heard through the guests, was that the bartender's didn't always have the best of attitudes towards some of the guests. Some guests would be ignored, some didn't get a very good face-to-face experience. There were guests who had a good experience with the bartenders , but there were quite a few other guests who did not have the same good experience.
All in all, the waitstaff walking around the venue helping to clear items were all smiling and wonderful. The venue was beautiful. The food was amazing and the process with Roxann and Candy was seamless and so pleasant.

The reason I'm not giving them 5 stars - the time leading up to our day. I worked with Roxann Raven and Candy Zilli and they were really unresponsive. Several times it took them over a week to respond to my emails and I had to follow up with them multiple times. I addressed this with Candy, who promised to fix it, but it continued to happen. This was very disappointing, especially with the amount of money I paid them. Also, neither of them were present at my reception and it took more than a month after our event to receive our final invoice.

We got married on August 15, 2015 at Coast. There are not enough positive adjectives to say about both the venue and Zilli (specifically, we thought Paul, Candy and Angie were so nice and helpful).
As an organization, Zilli is phenomenal....
We viewed several sites around Milwaukee run by Zilli, including the Domes, the Milwaukee Public Museum and Coast. I am confident that had we had our wedding at any of these sites, our wedding would have been amazing.
From a cost perspective, Coast is very reasonable compared to a downtown Milwaukee hotel. In addition, the wedding packages are easy to understand. We also thought the food (and the experience at the tasting) was phenomenal. People are still complimenting us on how good the food was.
With regard to the actual venue, the second my wife and I walked into Coast, we fell in love with it. Its circular shape, different elevations and different table arrangements creates a unique close-knit environment for speeches, cake cutting, eating, dancing, etc. Also, the long bar and outdoor area are really cool and add great character to the venue. In short, we loved the set-up of the room because we were literally surrounded by our closest family and friends during speeches, dancing, etc. It was such an amazing experience that I can't stop smiling writing this review! :) Make sure you visit the venue, because I think physically walking around the venue helps you realize how special and unique it is.
We had our wedding ceremony in the North Garden on a sunny day. Our pictures and video (with the Art Museum and the lake in the background) look like they could be in a bridal magazine. I can't envision a more beautiful place to get married in downtown Milwaukee. However, even had the weather been cloudy / rainy, I still think the pictures would have turned out great (e.g., we could have taken them inside of Coast, which is beautiful, or at our hotel).
Finally, I want to emphasize that from start to finish, Paul and Candy at Zilli went above and beyond to make sure we had the wedding of our dreams. They were responsive, thoughtful, flexible and provided some of the best customer service one could imagine. In addition, on the day of the wedding, Paul and his staff worked tirelessly to make sure our wedding was flawless (e.g., Paul coordinated with all of the vendors, made sure everyone had enough to eat, drink, etc.).
We really can't say enough good things about both the venue (Coast and the North Garden) and our experience working with Zilli. We highly recommend this venue and working with Zilli.
Thank you again!!

He received everything constructively and addressed each issue as a learning experience for his entire team. I applaud him for his efforts to continue to make Coast one of the preferred venues in Milwaukee. The great thing was our guests never knew there were any issues.

The food was great! From the hand passed appetizers to the chicken and beef. We even put picture of the appetizers in our wedding album because it was such a nice set up.
Everyone loved the outdoor seating on the hot summer night to cool off after dance. Coast has a perfect layout, no one was crowded, everything flowed.
