FABULOUS! We got married on 2/10/18 and were over the moon ecstatic with the level of service of Finley Catering, specifically the CTR team. Michelle helped us plan the most perfect wedding answering all of our questions immediately, she was there during the entire process and... Read More even calmed me down the second I walked down the isle. She was key with all the details and answered all pre weekend questions. We have received countless compliments on the room, the room it's self is gorgeous, from the stunning chandelier to the architecture of the columns, classic timeless ballroom. Miguel was our day of person who made sure everything went smoothly, and he did not disappoint, he was always by my side asking if I needed a drink or lamb chops and made sure I wasn't stressed during the actual day. We also had food in the bridal suite prior to the actual ceremony as well as after, we had a sampling plate before we entered cocktail hour. Now, the food, let's start with the cocktail hour, WOW, amazing stations and tons of food making sure your guests get a proper base before the open bar. People were in shock that we still had a dinner after cocktail hour, there was THAT much food. We went with the duet pairing and people were raving about the crab cakes, filet and gratin dauphinois combination. If you are looking for a professional team that knows what they are doing than look no further as they will over deliver and make your dream a reality. Best day ever!

WOW! Book them. Now! I can't tell you how many people told us our wedding was the best they've ever been to. Emily was so prompt whenever she got back to us (she even gives clients her cell phone #). She was on top of every detail that we had discussed during the 1.5 year... Read More planning process. I made so many changes the month of and she was so patient with me during the whole process. Miguel ran a flawless event the day of the wedding, and just became part of the family that night it felt like! We had so much fun not only planning the wedding, but at the wedding itself. They made sure we were taken care of, and our parents too (bringing us and the bridal party cocktail hour food, making sure we ate each meal, refilling our drinks all night) - we had a blast!! I will also say that our food tasting months prior to the wedding was "fine" (filet isn't really meant to be served buffet style, but understandably is served this way for the group tasting), but once you get to the wedding day the food was out of this world! So if you have a mediocre tasting, just know that the food will be 10x better the day of! People raved about each and every course, the cake, and the coffee bar at the dessert room! This place is hands down worth every penny. The ballroom was a literal dream. I was so sad at the end of the night when it was all over that I cried!! I will also add that you need to do the after party! Our guests LOVED it because they never wanted to stop partying that night. The DJ they provided was amazing. I look back on our wedding day with a heart so full that every detail we envisioned became a reality. People will be talking about this wedding for a long long time. Book them - you'll be glad you did!

THE MOST INCREDIBLE VENUE AND STAFF!!! We held our wedding here 8.19.17 and it was the most perfect day. Michelle, Miguel, and the rest of the staff were wonderful. They made sure our every wish was met and the wedding ran smoothly and perfectly. As a type-A bride, I could not... Read More have been more pleased. The cocktail hour was incredible (a month later people are still talking about it), the room was beautiful, and our guests were beyond impressed. This venue comes with a price, but it is worth EVERY penny! Finley is the best catering company in the city and the Crystal Tea Room is the most luxurious venue to match.

What a venue!!! Simply amazing!!! We got married on 4-29-17 at the Crystal Team Room and words can not even explain our satisfaction with not only the venue, but all of the staff who works there as well. We worked with Michele from day one and she made wedding planning a breeze.... Read More When we first met for our initial consult, we were nervous and wasn't sure even what to look for, ask about, etc. Meeting Michele was the best decision of our lives that day! She put our minds at ease, broke down things in detail and listened to our vision and what we were looking to accomplish with our wedding theme! A baseball eloquent theme is not something to easily pull off and Michele was very helpful in helping us achieve that goal. Miguel was a blessing in disguise and we couldn't be more thankful for him. He has such an infectious personality that it's not hard at all to feel like you have known him for over 20 years! He is superb at what he does and keeps your whole night organized and running smoothly. I did not have anything to worry about the entire night of my wedding! My husband and I still talk about how much we didn't have to stress about things and how much we were able to just really enjoy the most important day of our lives. The food was amazing and our guests still have been raving about all of it from cocktail hour to the after party. The drinks were excellent too! All of our guests were surprised by the large selection and the quality of the drinks! All of the staff was very friendly and helpful to all of our family and friends. All of you were more than accommodating and we could never thank you for that!!!! We love all of you and thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!! We hope many more people have wedding dreams like ours come true at all of your Finley locations!!! <3 Future brides....look no further!!! This is the venue to make all of your dreams come true!!!! Go and Book today!!!!

Our wedding was almost 2 weeks ago and people are still telling us how incredible the reception was. The Crystal Tea Room is obviously beautiful, but Finley Catering makes sure everything is done perfectly from start to finish. The food (which luckily I was able to eat despite... Read More being the bride) was AMAZING and all of our guests loved it. The After Party was so much fun and Miguel made everything run so smoothly. The perfect Philly venue!
