This was the first reception hall we looked at when we were searching. We ended up going with them. The decor is VERY neutral, so you can decorate how you want. There was more than enough room for 165 guests. Ruth, Sam, Joe and the rest of the Gambitta's staff worked with us... Read More SO nicely!!! They were very prompt with call backs and set up the reception hall how we wanted it! They even cooked special meals for our guests with food allergies as well as our vegan guest. We appreciate their hard work and will definitely recommend this hall to everyone who asks me! For the price, you CANNOT go wrong!! :)

They did everything perfectly from the best food ever to the cleanliness of the facitily. What a class act... Read More is all we can say.

Perfection Reception

For anyone getting married in the North East Ohio area and are in need of a TOP NOTCH reception hall, look no further than Gambitta's. They bent over backwards to help my husband and I, who were VERY inexperienced with the whole "wedding" thing. But everyone at Gambitta's... Read More made the planning so easy. They were always available to answer all of our questions (no matter how silly or off the wall), and were extremely patient with us even afer we changed our theme 3 times! The food was beyond excellent as well. We actually struggled with picking our menu! In terms of the pricing, they were exceptionally competitive and offered us advice on some cost cutting short cuts. The day before the wedding, Gambitta's made sure they had someone there to help us with the pre-wedding decorations. I didnt even have to go out an buy full center pieces. They have beautiful white centerpieces and tall glass vase centerpieces already made and brides can personalize them (the glass vase ones) and are able to use them at no extra cost. All we had to do was put up some of the ceiling decor and a few odds and ends, then they took care of the rest! That night, the waitresses/waiters were friendly and kept stopping to congratulate us and compliment us on the decorations and some of the little personalized touches we'd used. Sam, the lovely girl that was there the night of the wedding to make sure it all went smooth, was always within helping distance too and made sure to check in with us that everything was going perfectly. I didnt have to worry about a thing that night. My husband and I's wedding day was perfect from start to finish and Gambitta's played a big role in making our day perfection, right down to the "Congratulations Stephanie and Patrick" sign out front. We are planning on using them again for my parents and his parents 50th wedding anniversary parties. Give them a call! I promise you will not be disappointed!

Amazing reception hall!!!!

We used Gambitta's Party Center for our wedding reception and we are so happy with it. I want everyone to know how amazing they are. The staff is some of the best people to ever work with, and so kind and easy to get a hold of as well as professional! My husband and I were... Read More waited on hand and foot and everyone working there asked if we needed anything at all. The decor was clean and simple with a beautiful bar and good sized dance floor. Their prices are more than fair and allowed for a small or large party. And now to the amazing, amazing food. It has been a week since my wedding and everyone keeps coming up to me to tell me how amazing and wonderful the food was, and how they kept going back for more. Anyone in Northeast Ohio should give them a call. I know we still plan on using them to cater any future parties.

Joe listened to all the details we wanted and executed them! The food was excellent and there were no issues at the reception.
