You Helped Give My Daughter Her Dream Wedding

Reviewed on 6/14/2013 Todd F

Gentlemen --- I tip my hat for a job very well done. You delivered on all that we contracted for BUT, you more than exceeded my expectations. Your team went above and beyond and you were operating on all cylinders. Nothing was missed. As you are by now aware -- I like... Read More to check and check and triple check and am always nervous about execution. BUT, your execution was flawless and you permitted me to enjoy the evening of my daughters' wedding. Actually, I have never enjoyed an event so much because I am usually having to FIX the problems. We are so happy that we chose the ROOM ON MAIN. The venue is amazing but your delivery of services was spectacular. In all the events I have ever hosted - RARELY has the food tasted as it was presented at the tasting. It is easy to prepare for a tasting of five but, serving 130 can be a different story. YET - you said the food would be wonderful and it was -- hot, flavorful and bountiful. The event was magnificent from the minute we walked in on Sunday to the hours later when we left. You helped deliver a magical night for my daughter and all I can say is Thank you.

Have you ever made a wish and it come true beyond your wildest dreams? Well, that’s exactly what happened when we had our wedding ceremony and reception at the remarkable Room on Main. I will tell you right now, you simply must go there to see it … to believe it! It is the... Read More most magnificent 5,000 sq. ft. ball room you will ever see with those 30 ft. tall ceilings, 20 ft. tall neutral-draped windows engulfing 3 walls, and vintage chandeliers throughout the gorgeous ceiling. There’s really not much else you have to do to make the room look superb, but our florist made it look uniquely like our own ballroom. Pamela and Jessica from the Room on Main and certainly, David, with CN Catering went above and beyond to make our day absolutely perfect! The planning was so simple (with them being the pros that they are) and it made my planning a piece of cake, which is quite the exception with me being the perfectionist that I am. As the day approached, I kept expecting to get nervous about the arrangements. However, I just knew it was going to come off without a hitch from having worked with them for those months in advance. On the day of the wedding, I simply focused on us, cast my worries to the wind, and Viola! … It was a Wedding Day Made in Heaven!! Everything was prepared and provided promptly as promised! The tables were perfectly arranged. The food tasted superb and loved by all, (with many people going back for seconds)! The attendants were spot-on with their service and the evening was sheer perfection! Should you follow in our footsteps, you will never regret it … for it will be as if you followed in Cinderella’s glass slippers. Just check it out … you’ll see! It was magical!

For brides and grooms looking for a venue with integrity, service, partnership and professionalism, the Room on Main is not for you. While the location is beautiful and the food was tasty, it's not worth it. On the night of event I arrived to a room filled with toxic fumes.... Read More The event crew failed to alert me that the wooden floors had been treated and that there would be a horrible chemical odor at my event. Some of my guests left early because of the fumes and I was mortified and embarrassed. A week after my event I hadn't heard from the ROM event team, no one called or emailed to check in and importantly, no one apologized for the odor and for not telling me. Rather I was told that the event team took a consensus vote and decided it was okay to have the fumes at my $25K+ reception. No financial restitution was made. Simply, I was told that I would get a survey in the mail a week or so after the event and could provide my feedback there. During the planning process with the ROM team, my wedding planner and I noticed on 2 occasions that items that we had not asked for or discussed would appear on our bill. Again, no apology and if we had not asked about it, I'm sure we would have been charged. Lastly, our meetings with the event planning team were at best indifferent. At the first private meeting, the event manager was late (did not apologize) and was rude. ABORT, ABORT this venue.

Our wedding was stunning! The room is gorgeous. It created such an elegant and timeless atmosphere for our perfect day. And the food was delicious!!! We were shocked...most wedding food is just not that good (it's hard to effectively cook for that many ppl)--but they nailed it.... Read More Everyone kept telling us how good the food was--my parents are big foodies and they were even impressed. We went with the filet option and sea bass. The fried cheese balls for appetizers for the bomb! People still talk about them, and the cheese display was gorgeous. The staff catered to my every need the day of the event. At one point, one staff member noticed that I'd started glistening from dancing and immediately asked if they could turn down the air for me. They sent us home with the cutest "goodie bag" of late night snacks and made sure we got everything we came with/needed. The planning process with RoM was...ok. The coordinator who handles most of the communication and in-person meetings, has no real authority--so if you ask for anything that is not "standard", she'll immediately say "no". If you press her, she'll say that she needs to ask David and then you'll most likely get a "yes, that's fine"--so don't give up, if you really want something a certain way, just be insistent. I also felt that she didn't provide great if you asked her well "whats the best way to do 'this'" it took a bit of digging before she'd provide advice based on past events. That aside...they created the most beautiful day for us and it really was a wonderful experience on the day of.
