An Enchanted Evening at the Taglyan Cultural ComplexReviewed on 10/31/2014
After seeing the Taglyan Cultural Complex I knew it was the ideal location for my wedding. Not only was the venue decorated and embellished beautifully, but the staff was more than accommodating. They surpassed my expectations and did all they could to make my guests feel comfortable. Beginning with the cocktail hour, the staff enchanted my guests with effervescent libations and exotic h'orderves. In the grand ballroom they served a grand feast fit for a king and queen. Later on in the evening, in the exquisite marble foyer, they laid out a colorful spread of tropical fruit and decadent dessert. It's difficult to put into words how magical the evening was. By the way people talked about my wedding, and still are to this day, I can tell that it will be held in the highest regards for a long time. I attribute all the credit to the Taglyan Cultural Complex and couldn't have been a happier bride. I can't express my gratitude enough. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
The most beautiful wedding venue in CaliforniaReviewed on 10/31/2014 liana a
We had out engagement reception at Taglyan Complex last month and it was absolutely amazing. All our guests loved the venue and they are still talking about it. Everything was beyond our expectations!!!! The venue is not only stunning but it offers delicious food and outstanding service. We are planning to have our wedding at Taglyan next year. Thanks to the staff for providing excellent service. I highly recommend Taglyan for any occasion.
Perfection.Reviewed on 10/31/2014
I am a wedding planner who has had the opportunity to work with the team at this gorgeous venue multiple times. I have been told in the past my expectations are too high...admit-tingly so I do expect a certain level of professionalism and quality from the vendors I work with. There are a handful of great venues out there but to some extent fall short in certain key areas... With that being said, There truly are no words to describe the experience my brides and I have had at Taglyan. From the very first time I did a walk through I knew this was going to be a completely different level of service we were going to get. Throughout the entire planning process of each and every event..they are always prompt with replies, accommodating and go out of their way to make sure their client is happy. No matter how big or small the request may be, they make it happen...with a BIG smile! It is rare to work with a team of truly great people who care about every detail as much as they do. Each event is handled as if it is their very last. I love that their quality, care and love for what they do only gets stronger with their success. THE FOOD!!! I can not rave enough about how incredible every dish is!! The quality of the food does not compare to any other venue in LA/ OC market! I have had brides disappointed at 5star hotels with the way their filet was cooked, the food not being the right temperature, not coming out on time etc etc... never in all this time have I heard any complaints even from the pickiest of them all about their food, timing and quality! I recently did an offsite wedding with this incredible team and had to write a review to show my gratitude for how fantastic they were! They helped us do things catering never gets involved with, true team players. Hovig manages most of the events and you could tell there is team camaraderie and so much respect and that is a recipe for success. When meeting with Gary Taglyan himself, it all makes sense why their team is as strong as it is. Don't think twice about doing your event here!!
Simply the best!Reviewed on 10/30/2014
I had my wedding at Taglyan, and it was an amazing experience! I cannot say enough great things about the owner. Also the manager Hovig was so helpful, kind, and attentive. The venue is of course gorgeous. The service is excellent. The food is definitely not your typical banquet hall food; rather it is elegant, refined, varied, and delicious! All our guests were raving about the experience. I highly recommend Taglyan for any event!
ImpeccableReviewed on 10/30/2014
An absolute gem. I had my engagement at the Taglyan and have attended many events there as well. Impeccable service, divine food, and stunning decor. I will have my wedding there as well! Hospitality at its finest. No need for a coordinator, because they coordinate for you! It's a one stop for the perfect wedding. I'm so excited!
Thank you Taglyan....Reviewed on 10/30/2014 Brittany T
We were blessed to celebrate with 450 of our CLOSE family and friends on October 4th, 2014. The big day was an absolute dream, but it would not have been as wonderful without the delicious food and extraordinary service of Divine Catering from our friends at the Taglyan Complex. Our friends and family would not stop raving about how delicious everything was. From the cocktail hour, to the main entree, to the late night snacks, Divine Catering delivered whatever they promised! We are so pleased to have worked with them and would recommend them to anyone!!!
Wedding BlissReviewed on 10/29/2014
We chose Taglyan Complex for our wedding and could not have been more satisfied. I want to first state that the management staff at Taglyan is one of a kind. They truly know what it takes to successfully make a customer happy. Everything was exactly what we had been promised and more. Gary is the most professional, and sincere person one can come across in this line of business. My family was a 100% pleased, and so were my guests. To this day, they keep talking about how delicious the food was and how impressed they were. Gary had every moment of the event planned, which made everything run smooth with no mishaps throughout the evening. Thus, Gary and his team of coordinators made it all work like magic. Our event began with a beautiful cocktail hour, which entailed a variety of hors d'oeuvres and cocktails that our guests truly enjoyed. The hall is majestic with beautiful lighting, and decor. I could go on and on about how amazing and magical this place is and how our vision became reality, thanks to Gary and his amazing staff. This place is perfect in every way, we highly recommend this venue for any event.
Thank you for making out Dream come trueReviewed on 10/28/2014 Dina S

Exceeded all expectationsReviewed on 10/27/2014 Nousha K
We had our wedding at Taglyan in January and we couldn't be more pleased! Following are the advantages of Taglyan for any wedding, especially a persian one: 1. The Complex itself is one of the most beautiful and elegant venues we had ever seen. 2. The food is exceptional. We are still getting compliments on how wonderful the food was; infact several vegetarians broke their diet and had kabab in our wedding! The service is outstanding. 3. Last but not least is the manager of Taglyan, Aram, who I put in charge of so many details of the wedding and I couldn't believe my eyes: he took care of our dessert table, our fruite table, our champaign station, our tea station and our cake table....I basically told him to do whatever he sees fit and he made the most beautiful stations that one can't even find in wedding magazines. Aram essentially plays the role of a wedding planner, but much better. We are so very thankful to Taglyan, specially Aram for making our special day so incredibly beautiful.
The Taglyan-Nothing Beats itReviewed on 10/24/2014 Christine Y
I was married on May 17. Where to begin...Lets start with the people. Aram and his team excel at what they do. It's very obvious that they're experienced. Very experienced. Trust me when I say, your wedding will go as planned with their help and dedication. Next the venue. Pristine. There's just nothing bad to to say about it. It's just pretty. Very pretty. BYOB and the stuff yourself stupid family style food. The food here is amazing!! Wedding steak? Wedding fish? Wedding Vegetarian plate? Please. Get outta here. The Taglyan starts with cold appetizers WAITING for your guests as soon as they enter the ballroom. Oh wait this is AFTER some of the best hors d'oeuvres served during cocktail hour. Then comes, hot appetizers, entree and dessert. I heard later that my guests asked for togo boxes...interestingly enough, they got their togo boxes! The service is awesome. Comparable to high end dining. I had 2 people dedicated to our sweetheart table and they made sure I was taken care of. Audio video system superb. My DJ and MC didnt have to bring much which meant lower costs for me! I can go on...My wedding was a beautiful blur and I know there wasnt a single moment I was unhappy. This venue did everything to contribute to my perfect day. Thank you. Thank you!
Fairytale come trueReviewed on 10/22/2014 Noelle N
What a fairytale come true!!! We just had our wedding at the Taglyan and we can't say enough as to how amazing it was, from the professionalism of the staff, to the beautiful venue inside and out, the lighting, the incredible sound system, the DELICIOUS food, and the list goes on and on. Our family and friends are still talking about how it was the best wedding they have ever been to. Thank you Abram and the Taglyan for making our wedding dreams come true!
ONLY place where your dream wedding will become a reality!!!!Reviewed on 9/23/2013 Eliz K
I want to start by saying thank you from the bottom of my heart to Gary and the staff at the Taglyan. We held our wedding reception here and there are absolutely no words to describe how amazing everything was. To start, from the minute our guests stepped into the venue the staff provided exceptional service to us and all our guests till the minute we stepped out. They knew how to help us and what we needed before we even had a chance to ask. The headwaiter, I don't know how he did it, being in a million places at once, but he was wonderful, thank you! Then the food! The food was incomparable!! Absolutely top-quality, our guests are still raving about it, saying it was the best they've ever had. And of course, the beautiful venue itself, the design and lighting system can not be described in words how stunning it is. Even after being there for hours, you still want to look up and enjoy the lighting... That day it wasn't just a venue provided to us, it was soooo much more! They helped our whole wedding run smoothly, even helping with things that they didn't have to help with... Again, thank you Gary for helping our dream wedding become a reality, without you and your exceptional staff it wouldn't have been possible!!! Gary & Eliz ~ 10.21.11

BEST wedding venue in LA!!Reviewed on 10/09/2012 Christine B
Taglyan was simply gorgeous and amazing! I've attended many weddings in many different venues and have not come across anything like this. I first saw this venue on a television episode of "My Fair Wedding with David Tutera." Looked up this venue and my fiancé and I booked a date immediately. Aram and Gary are very pleasant to work with and they go above and beyond what you request to make you happy. On the wedding day, Aram and Gary were there making sure everything was perfect. Our guests were astonished at the venue and the quality of their food. If I could get married all over again, I would do it again here!!
Most amazing wedding Venue!!Reviewed on 9/21/2012 Leor A
We are so happy that we had our wedding at the Taglyan. Its a beautiful venue, the ballroom is definitely the most amazing one I have seen and I did a lot of research. The food was so tasty! I never had that many guests come up to me and tell me how good the food was. The service was impeccable and most importantly the staff were so friendly and accommodating. In every aspect, we were extremely happy with our wedding. It was beautiful!
Everything we want in a venue - elegance + classyReviewed on 3/07/2011 JW D
We booked our wedding reception and so far, we have been very happy with everything. Our wedding is 8 months away but I just can't wait to have our wedding there. =) We were a bit hesitant in the beginning as we have never heard of this place. If you are looking for a venue with a 5-star hotel-like ballroom plus delicious food, I urge you to check this place out....you will not be disappointed. After 3 months of emailing back and forth with Gary (the event director @Taglyan), we decided to check it out in person. The place looks just as great in person! The ballroom with its integrated lightings looks so much better than most ordinary hotel ballrooms. Plus you get the whole venue for your entire party. So it's much more private and exclusive than a hotel ballroom or resturant. We have met with many event coordinators at other venues, Gary is by far the most easy-going and flexible. He is really there to make sure the couple is happy =). He won't nickle and dime you like other places would. We had our meal tastings last week and the food was very yummy too. I hope that the food will be just as good on our wedding day. According to our friend who went to a wedding there, the food was great! So far, this place ROCKS! We are so happy that we found this place. And did I mention that one of the episode of My Fair Wedding with david Tutera was filmed there? It's good enuf for Hollywood! It's classy, it's elegant, and it's so different.
