I wish I could give them a higher score because they were honestly amazing. The staff was so helpful. The food amazing. I had nothing but compliments from our guests. I will definitely use this venue again.
Such a beautiful place! The staff was very helpful during all the planning. Always answered my phone calls and my questions! Food was great and everything came out perfect. Loved it!
I couldn't have asked for a better venue or staff to share my day with. Arin is an absolute sweetheart and made me feel like family right down to the very last minute when I was losing my mind. Everything right down to the smallest detail was amazing, it has been a little over a month and I am still hearing about how beautiful wedding and venue was and how amazing the food is. We couldn't have made a better decision.....Thank you for everything!!
DiNolfo's offers a variety of meal options, design packages, and add ons. It was a one stop shop and that made it significantly less stressful during the planning stage. Each reception room comes with a bridal suite for getting ready for the day. It was a great place to relax before they ceremony. We were able to further personalize our ceremony with uplighting, linen upgrades, chivari chairs, and a personalized monogram. The only need for improvement I see is with the dinner service. Dinner and dessert courses were removed before guests were finished with them. Overall, it was a great experience and I would highly recommend it.
We were really excited to have our wedding of 300 guests here until a couple days before the wedding. We weren’t allowed to decorate past 7pm and could not arrive any earlier than 11. This was problematic because we had rehearsal dinner and last minute errands. My card table had bbq sauce stains on it. Our waitress did not bring our drinks. My mom did not receive her fillet mignon as previously confirmed. My ring bearer did not receive his chicken tender plate. My cake I had to pay extra for since I’m celiac was cleared before I even had a chance to eat. The staff did not fill my centerpieces with water and light the floating candles as promised. Some items were left behind. My husband and I were in Paris for our honeymoon. Eventually, a voice mail message was left from Cheryl stating, “we are really outreaching ourselves. Out of respect you will give us a call back.” Needless to say, I will NOT be recommending this venue to anyone.
Met all my needs and so much more my guest loved the food and drinks.
WOULD NEVER RECOMEND THIS ESTABLISHMENT. UNPROFESSIONAL!!! THE NIGHT OF MY SON'S WEDDING WHEN WE ARRIVED THE HALL WAS STILL NOT READY, THEY WERE STILL SETTING TABLES. I HAD ALOT OF PEOPLE ATTEND THAT DID NOT RSVP. THE OWNER ACCUSED ME OF NOT GIVING THEM THE CORRECT NUMBERS. BASICALLY HE WAS CALLING ME A LIAR!! AND THEN HE REFUSED TO OK MORE FOOD TO BE COOKED UNTIL HE HAD A CASH PAYMENT IN HIS HAND. HE LEANED BACK IN HIS CHAIR (LIKE A CHILD) AND SAID "WHEN I HAVE MY PAYMENT I WILL BE MORE THEN HAPPY TO TELL THE KITCHEN TO PREPARE MORE FOOD.". IF YOU WANT YOUR NIGHT TO BE MEMORABLE IN A GOOD WAY STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE. MY NIGHT WILL BE MEMORABLE FOREVER IN A NEGATIVE WAY THANKS TO THIS OWNER/MANAGER.
Ah! I cannot begin to review them! They were AMAZING. My wedding was more than I could have imagined. If you get a chance to work with Aryn, you will not be disappointed. She was truly the best part of my wedding, other than marrying my husband! You could tell that she truly cared about us and wanted our day to be perfect. She was more than just a coordinator for us. She was our fairy godmother! (Our wedding had a Disney theme, haha)
We just had our wedding, and we cannot thank the staff enough for everything. We only had two hiccups: two of our tables were only set up for 9 seats when they should've been set up for 10, and something happened with our cake to where about a third of our guests didn't get to have a slice. Even with the two hiccups, the staff didn't hesitate to help fix them. Once informed about the seating mishap, I was able to let a server know right away, and the staff immediately set up the additional settings at both of the tables, and in lieu of the wedding cake, the guests who didn't receive the cake were given ice cream. The food was very good! Everything came out hot and ready to be eaten. Service was very quick, too. We also did the pizza package and had 5 pizzas delivered as a late night snack. We opted to upgrade our bar so that it would serve 3 domestic bottles along with the full-service bar and 3 draft beers included with our Exclusive Package, and I believe it was worth every penny. DiNolfo's was able to get all of the bottled beer we requested and never ran out. I highly recommend this to other couples planning weddings here since the bottled beer was a huge hit. DiNolfo's made sure to set up all of our uplights, monogram, escort cards and party favors on time. The gold chiavari chairs really made a huge difference in our ball room. We booked the Cypress room, and luckily the weather held out because a ton of our guests utilized our private patio. I loved that most everything was handled by DiNolfo's. With the exception of our own little decorations to add and our DIY centerpieces, they made everything else possible including linens, dishes, utencils, drink glasses, and our Exclusive Package included table runners, uplighting, the custom monogram, 3 LED pub tables, pass hors d'oeurves, and so much more. The staff was incredibly helpful, answered all my questions (and trust me, there were a LOT I was coming up with), and work extremely hard to make brides and grooms happy and care-free for their wedding day.
I just had my wedding there last Friday July 7, 2017 the venue is beautiful that's what sold us, but unfortunately my review is not a good one being that for the $15,000 we paid for 136 people we expected the servers and bartenders to be polite and courteous to our guest. The bartenders acted as if they could not understand our hispanic guest that are fluent in English and did not want to keep serving our guests drinks when it's open bar and we had paid for upgraded liquor per person as well as take our own pineapple juice and squirt! The servers attitudes were as if they didn't want to be there or as if they didn't get paid for attending guests. Again do not be fooled by the place itself it's beautiful.. I read reviews like the one I'm leaving here and thought it can't be, but yes if you do decide to have your wedding here please bring up the staff and service to the wedding coordinator before you sign anything!
Amazing staff, amazing food, amazing service! Everyone compliment how beautiful our venue was! I am so glad we chose DiNolfo's and would recommend them to anyone!
I had my wedding at DiNolfo's in October and couldn't have been happier. Throughout the entire wedding planning process the staff at DiNolfo's were helpful and friendly, as well as accommodating. We received so many compliments from friends and family about how great of a wedding we had, and we know our wedding would not have been the same if we had not chosen DiNolfo's. The food was delicious, the venue is gorgeous, and we are so happy we chose DiNolfo's for our wedding reception.
They were wonderful to us through the whole experience. Our ceremony space and reception room were absolutely beautiful. The food was good, our bartender was super friendly, and the staff was awesome. Our wedding was amazing thanks to everyone there.
Having a guest list of 400+ made my not excited to start the venue search for my ceremony AND reception. Cost per person, beautiful space, parking, easy to get to, good food, were all very important to me. Once I walked into DiNolfos I knew it was the place we'd get married. The open lobby, gorgeous high ceilings, staircase, and outdoor courtyard were just the beginning of what we loved. The staff was incredibly accommodating for our unique needs. We also had my bridal shower here and it was beautiful. We have heard nothing but wonderful feedback from all of our guests as well. I highly recommend DiNolfo's for any wedding or large event! I wish I could get married there again!
I had an amazing experience with DiNolfo's! They were wonderful in every single way! From the beginning, they were always easy to work with. They were incredibly accommodating even on our wedding day. The place is absolutely gorgeous! It was perfect for all my photos! I would highly recommend them to anyone!
This venue was amazing. From start to finish they were very easy to work with. Pros: Easy to talk to. Communication was open and they answered all my questions in a timely manner. The people were very nice and happy to work there. They set up everything in the venue how we wanted and made the décor exactly how we wanted. Everyone enjoyed the food and I received feedback from my guests that the food was amazing ( We had the choice of the Italian chicken and chicken visuvio). Payment was easy. Options were endless. The outside terrace was a huge hit especially since it was so nice out. The venue itself is gorgeous with the large windows behind the bridal party. Dinolfo's has done many weddings and it shows. Overall excellent experience. Cons: I was told three days before my wedding that everything needed to be taken down at the end of the night even though I asked prior if this needed to be done. They did work with us to make sure we received all our décor back and that it was stored properly for pick up the next day. My Italian chicken was dry. I would have thought they would give the bride a good dish over a bad one. Again, I heard from all my guests they loved their dinner and that's all that matters to me. The carpet is kind of dated. It showed in some pictures but not many.
Literally run away as fast as you can from this place. There is no bride in the world that should be treated the way I was treated here. I went to look at the place with my fiance last month and at first I was totally impressed and Arin was amazing too. We went back yesterday with our family and the deposit to seal the deal until we were treated with the utmost disrespect. Cheryl was very rude and not being helpful at all when it came to explaining things. Then when it came to negotiating she and this man told me that if I want a lower price I need to go else where and that Dinolfos was not the place for me. I literally ran out of the venue crying because of their attitude towards me. My fiance told me that it's okay we love the venue and we will just work with Arin. I was seconds away from walking back in to bite my tounge and still give them the deposit until my dad came out yelling because one of the works screamed at him for standing next to a piano. This place is a joke.
Typical banquet hall look- Cold food, not the best service but they did have strong drinks!
Our wedding was July 16th, 2016.... It was magical and everything was great! They worked with me around my arrival time; my vendors; the food was excellent! Everyday I get a call or text about how beautiful the wedding was. Cheryl was great!
We got married June 11th. Everything was perfect! Food was amazing. They do not offer tastings however we have been to several weddings here before so that was not an issue for us. We got TONS of food compliments. From the apps to dinner and sweet table, it was all delicious!!! I even had a few compliments on the bar staff with a "good pour" which is always nice for open bar! They fast to respond to emails and worked with me well when I needed to make any adjustments. Definitely would recommend!
My fiancée and I went here to visit. Going in, it was our top choice. Even so much we were going to guarantee a guest number yo just be able to have our reception there. Everything seemed wonderful until we asked about food. Due to medical reasons it is imperative that I can sample the food. Otherwise I may end up vomiting. I explained my medical concern as to why it's important to me to taste my menu. However, they didn't care and kept referring to their 40 yrs in service. Dinolfos NEVER does a tasting. They expect you to spend 20+ thousand dollars and never sample what they provide. This seems fishy to me. Despite this, my fiancé and I still considered choosing dinolfos until the other day. We received a follow up call. I informed them of my concerns and where they were. How we were still discussing because it's a lot of money to place in someone else's hands without ever trying the product. Well when I again informed them Of my medical condition and concern for not trying the good. The lonely lady responded to me stating "well we area banquet hall not a restaurant". Well mad pardon me while take my business elsewhere that cares about their clients wedding and experience. Stay far far away from here!
My family and future Brazilian family had the pleasure of recently viewing your venue with Laura. Laura is definitely an attribute to your business. She was informative, helpful, courteous and professional. DiNolfo's is a great place to have an event.
Overall I'm very pleased with my decision to choose Dinolfo's in Homer Glen for my wedding reception. They were very pleasant to work without throughout the planning process, they offered a lot of great options for food, alcohol, and decor, and they are very reasonably priced. They were nothing but professional every time I spoke to them in person or on the phone, regardless of which employee it was. On the day of my wedding the ballroom was stunning, the vendors didn't have any problems setting up, and the food was delicious. The only complaints I have are 1) we paid extra for a martini bar during cocktail hour, we purchased, washed, and brought in 200 martini glasses because Dinolfo's required us to bring our own, and then when it came time for the cocktail hour the martinis were served warm (and none of them were a recipe where this would be acceptable). I didn't think I'd have to tell an experienced venue with experienced bartenders that they needed to shake or stir a martini with ice, but apparently I did. I tried 2 of them, and I didn't even think they were drinkable because they were so warm. The other issue was that we had wedding crashers from the other wedding going on. Not one, and not only once, but groups of 5-6 people who continuously came in to our wedding many times throughout the night. Honestly, if they weren't obnoxious I probably wouldn't even have noticed, but they were bothering me and the photographers, they were running away from my wedding planner when she tried to kick them out, and the signed my guestbook "we crashed your wedding." I left the reception at one point to complain to the people in the main office because I was so annoyed (NOT something I should have to do during my own wedding!), and they posted a security guard at the door, but he was absolutely useless. He just stood there as they continued to come in and be disruptive. I just can't imagine what an issue this probably is when Dinolfo's has 3 or 4 weddings going on; there was only one on the night of mine, and they couldn't even control the guests then. I complained to Rich jr. the next day when I came back to pick up my things, and all he said was "I'm sorry, I wish I would have known." Now granted, I didn't tell him specifically because he wasn't in the office when I complained, but I thought informing the 2 other employees who were in there (Carolina and Laura) would be sufficient; apparently not. I'm just disappointed that a venue with as good of a reputation as this, and who appears to have their act together in all other ways, can't figure out a way to keep guests in their own wedding. I'm sorry to taint an otherwise good review with this experience, but I think it's important for people to be aware that this could be a problem at their wedding. Other than this, however, we enjoyed our wedding and are happy with the service.
Wonderfully sweet!Reviewed on 1/05/2016 Lisa M
Everyone at DiNolfo's that we worked with was helpful, polite, accommodating and had superior customer service (especially Richy and Arin)! I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a venue for their wedding or special occasion!
Highly RecommendReviewed on 11/30/2015 Melissa B
We had nothing but positive things to say about DiNolfos. They were very helpful and everything ran smoothly. They even gave us a few extras that made the day even more special. Whenever I had a question they were immediately available, everything we asked for was delivered upon quickly, and everyone LOVED the food!! We had amazing reviews on the food!! The only downside is the location, which you can work around, it just isn't super convenient for nearby hotels and transportation.
