BEST. DECISION. EVER. The Chicory was beyond incredible for our wedding ceremony and reception. Not only is the venue beautiful and in a great location, but the staff is absolutely incredible. Caroline and Brent are excellent communicators and made the entire planning process... Read More easy and stress free. We live out of town and Brent was very accommodating in scheduling our private tasting for a time that worked for us. Not only was the food exceptional and the wine plentiful but it was one of the best and most fun meals we've ever had! (Thanks Brent!). Day of, I didn't worry about a single thing. Everything ran flawlessly. Caroline and the attendants were there the whole time making sure we had food and drinks and to help guide us to where we needed to be. Every one of our guests commented that it was the most fun they've ever had at a wedding. We love the Chicory!

If there was one thing we did right in planning our wedding it was choosing The Chicory!! They made the whole process so easy on us and were extremely accommodating. We were planning the wedding from out of town and that was a big worry when we started but The Chicory totally... Read More set our minds at ease. Brent and Jenna were fantastic, as were all the staff, and we did not have one single thing go wrong the entire day! We had a morning brunch wedding with all of the classic brunch items (bloody mary's/mimosas, shrimp and grits, beignets, etc.) and many of our guests said that was the BEST food they had the entire time they were in New Orleans. We could not have asked for a better experience. There are not enough thank-you's in the world!!

We couldn't have been happier with our wedding at the Chicory.

- [ ] We couldn’t have chosen a better venue (The Gallery) for our wedding. We booked it about 14 months in advance because we weren’t based locally, and Brent was super responsive during the entire process any time I reached out with questions. As it got closer, Brent and team... Read More were quick to communicate with any details that needed input from us. But honestly, during the site visit he made us feel so comfortable, that I knew we could trust whatever they thought would work best. Caroline, who oversaw our wedding, was also amazing. There was apparently a much larger wedding going on during ours, but we never felt that way (only finding out later). She truly made us feel like we were her focus. The venue itself is beautiful and doesn’t need a whole lot, but also malleable in that it takes on whatever style of decor you choose. If we had to do it again, we would choose The Gallery every time. Thanks guys!

I cannot express my thanks enough to Brent and crew at the Chicory. Our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour were planned to take place on Fulton Street (A cute cobblestone street right outside of the chicory owned by Harrahs). A week before the wedding was to take place we were... Read More told that the contract for the space was done in error and that crowd control would not be available. There was an LSU game happening at the same time of our ceremony so having the wedding outside (where there are outdoor TVs etc) when Harrah's was not going to cooperate with crowd control was a fatal blow to our ceremony plans. Needless to say we were freaking out a little. In comes Brent and The Chicory crew to save the day. We had already been planning the reception at the chicory and when Brent caught wind of our issues he immediately went to work to help us. Within a day of him hearing about the issue, he had plans to take on the ceremony and cocktail hour at the Chicory. We had about 250 guests, so I know this was not as easy as he made it seem. We were still a little nervous given the last minute changes but everything went off without a hitch! It made it very easy to be calm on the wedding day knowing Brent was there making sure everything was going smoothly. He is so fun, kind, experienced and was truly a joy to work with. The chicory itself is so beautiful and has an authentic new orleans feel that we loved and were excited to shares with our guests. The Chicory is in a great location for out of town guests as well given there are so many hotels, restaurants and attractions in walking distance. I would definitely recommend The Chicory to any couple looking to get married in New Orleans.

I had my Rehearsal Dinner at The Chicory in September 2017. From the moment my fiancée and I met Brent during our initial tour to the actual event, everything was PERFECT. Brent and his team (Jenna and Caroline) were super accommodating and helped us host a super memorable... Read More event for our 200 of our loved ones. The planning was super easy and they set up everything beautifully. We had a ton of food options to choose from and they provided some specialty items for the vegans and vegetarians in my family. I was running around taking pictures the entire time, so I didn't get a chance to actually eat, but EVERYONE was (and still is) talking about how good the food was that night. Overall we were very impressed with the venue, service, food, staff, etc. that night and will definitely consider hosting other events at The Chicory in the future.

Huge thank you to Brent, Jenna and the Chicory staff! Speaking on behalf of myself, husband and family we absolutely loved working with all of you! From the moment we showed up randomly the day after getting engaged we knew we wanted our reception at the Chicory. Brent was so... Read More professional and pleasurable to work with throughout the entire process! We met Jenna, the operation manager, closer to the wedding to finalize everything and again was blown away by her ability to be 5 steps ahead of my mom and I. Seriously, I didn't have to worry about anything through the entire planning process nor that night! One of our favorite parts of planning was the tasting/vendor event! You, your husband and 2 guests get to attend an event at the chicory to taste the menu and meet vendors. This was so much and fun and we definitely did not leave hungry! The reception was amazing! We have received so many compliments about the food and the lack of back up at the bar! My husband and I each had a personal attendant and they were also great! At one point I mentioned how hot I was from dancing and running around and they offered to have me stand in the walk in cooler for a few minutes...IT WAS THE BEST!

Words simply cannot express the level of purely polished professionalism, courtesy, beauty, and kindness that The Chicory holds. I remembered The Chicory from attending a previous wedding when my husband and I were looking for a venue. After he saw the spot and what they had... Read More to offer, he was with me 100%. I do not think I will ever be able to thank Brent enough for how amazingly friendly and masterfully skilled he is at what he does. He talked my husband and I through every part of the ceremony and reception and was excited about our vision of having a brunch for dinner! Our guests raved about the delicious omelet station, shrimp and grits, and french toast. No question or concern was too many! There was a bridal suite to use throughout the night which definitely came in handy. Furthermore, Jenna was a joy to work with in the weeks leading up to the wedding and as our day of coordinator. Any small moments I wanted, like a first look with my father or reading a letter with my soon-to-be husband on opposites sides of a door were worked into the schedule before the wedding. She was so attentive to my wants and needs. I simply felt at ease with her running the show. After the wedding, my husband and I both spent time raving about how wonderful the entire staff was! We each had an attendant that always refilled our drink or got us food. The entire staff was so extremely friendly, polite, and just happy to be a part of our wedding. I am so proud and honored that we got married at The Chicory. Inside those doors is something made of heaven. Yes, the venue is beautiful. However, I truly think it is the people we worked with, each and every staff member, that made our wedding one for the books. We will never be able to thank you enough, and we wish each of you success and a bright future!

I wish I could climb on top of a mountain and tell everyone who is in the process of planning a wedding in New Orleans not to look past the Chicory. This is the most amazing, professional venue there is in the city. And I'm sure it's one of the best in the entire gulf south.... Read More What's so terrific? The Venue. The venue itself is a perfect New Orleans backdrop. The location is incredible - right in the heart of the warehouse district. There are countless high quality hotels around the venue and it is basically connected to Harrah's - which offers well lit, affordable parking. The interior is amazing and you don't have to spend much money at all decorating because it's ready just the way it is. So many halls we looked at needed major decorations to bring them to life - but not this one - it's perfect the way it is. You can spend lots of money decking this place out - you can put in candles in the bottom hall and even hang chandelier from the ceiling. But the truth is you don't need to - it's amazing the way it is. The three room/balcony setup is perfect for a New Orleans wedding. Your guests can be in the middle room in a lively, dance friendly environment, or be in one of the exterior rooms or the balcony and barely hear the music and just relax. There is food at all times - they never run out - and it's perfect for different types of guests. What's so terrific? The Staff. You know that feeling of not really being sure that you get when you are looking at venues? You just want to find the right place where the people seem to care as much about your big day as you. This is that place. When you set up an appointment and meet Brent you will be somewhat shocked that he is so down to earth and not snooty at all. He's like an instant friend. He is selling the top venue in the area and he knows it. He won't pressure you and he'll be honest. The truth is that you are lucky if there's an open date that works with your wedding and my advice is to seriously consider it. During the process you'll get to work with Brent and he'll get back to you within 24 hours every time. Planning a wedding is hard enough - and you'll have a million questions - and it's so nice that he gets back to you right away. When it's getting closer to the final date you'll meet Jenna - who is someone you just should listen to and follow her lead. She is the wedding coordinator at the venue and she was born to do it. She makes quick, definite decisions and keeps everyone up to do with any adjustments or changes. These people know what they are doing - and you should follow their lead. What's so terrific? The food. Every aspect of the food is great. The passed around appetizers, the salad spreads, the cheeses, soups, and the main courses. We went with the basic package and it was more than we could have ever needed. There are a million ways to add on to the menu so go crazy if you want but the basic menu is perfect. Ray, the head chef, is not only great at what he does but very personable. You can email him directly or talk one on one about your ideas and he'll listen. One of the best moments of our wedding was when he came out to shake my hand at the end of the night and ask how everything was - total class all the way. What's so terrific? The value. When we first walked into the Chicory we felt it was one of the higher priced venues in the city and that made us nervous. But the value you end up getting is incredible - so much is included. And the experience is one of a kind.

Not only was the space beautiful and you can do so much with it, but the food was unreal. Every single thing we ate was delicious! I can go on and on about the incredible experience we had at the Chicory , but you should book your event there and see for yourself. They made our wedding the most perfect, magical day of our lives!
