We were married on October 7, 2017. We chose Union League because we value great service and great food. From our initial contact with the venue to picking up floral arrangements the day after, we were treated like royalty. Christina Fitzgerald, the event planner, is kind,... Read More responsive and a true professional. With Union League, you don't need a wedding planner. Everything from the set-up to coordinating vendors was taken care of by the venue. We had the ceremony and dinner/dancing in the upstairs ballroom and cocktail hour in the Sherman Room and a guest count of 80 people. Everything was absolutely flawless. In a word, MAGNIFICENT. Everyone was complimenting how good the food was, including the cake, which was made in-house. The filet was perfectly cooked and warm when served for every guest. The quality of the wine was also very good. The waitstaff was exceptionally professional and accommodating. The elegance of the interior requires little dressing up and there are plenty of beautiful photo opportunities both inside and out. For a truly all-inclusive experience, fine dining, and exceptional service at a great value choose Union League Cafe.

I had a 65 person wedding and the ballroom upstairs at Union League was the perfect venue for a wedding of that size. The food was fantastic, everyone was stuffed, and the wedding cake was delicious.

My husband and I got married here 2 weeks ago and I cannot say anything but amazing things about Union League. We had our ceremony upstairs and the reception downstairs. The whole restaurant is so beautiful, little decoration is needed (if any at all). The food was beyond superb... Read More and I am still getting compliments from friends and family about it. Bottom line it's beautiful, intimate, elegant, and has excellent French food with impeccable service. I would absolutely recommend Union League Cafe!

Wonderful, classy venue

We were so happy with our wedding reception at the Union League Cafe in New Haven. The banquet manager, Amy, was wonderful to work with- very responsive and understanding. We almost did not even look at the Union League because we thought it would be too pricey, but they... Read More allowed us to customize the menu to fit our budget and were well more willing to work with us than any other venue we considered. The service and the food were simply excellent. The only issue was that the dance floor had to be small so that we could accomodate both dinner and dancing for over 100 people in the upstairs ballroom. If you have a wedding of that size, using both floors of the Union League would be ideal. Without a doubt, we loved having our reception at the Union League and would do it all over again given the chance.

Simply The Best!

Union League is the place to go for an elegant wedding ceremony/reception. Top notch service and food. And the ambience is wonderful, especially for a winter wedding.
