I can not say enough positive comments about the service that Wagners of Westlake has given us. From the beginning they have guided my daughter, son in-law and I on every step to make their wedding dreams come true. They have a wonderful hard working staff. The food was delicious, the servers were friendly and quick to serve. The bartender was knowledgeable and witty. Most of all I would like to thank Mary and Susan who have help us out tremendously. The whole reception from beginning to end was lovely. We are all so pleased with everything and highly recommend Wagner's of Westlake to anyone who is looking for the perfect wedding venue. Thank you Wagners!!
We had a beautiful wedding at Wagner's. The room was gorgeous and the food was excellent. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this venue to future brides.
Wagner's of Westlake did a wonderful job with my ceremony and reception, which were both held at their facility. They made planning easy, and coordinated with my DJ for the events. They helped us with the timing of walking in for the ceremony, and were wonderful with the service. The food was delicious and well presented. I am very happy with how everything turned out.
Wagner's of Westlake did an awesome job for my daughter's wedding. Many guests commented that the food was excellent and the room was set up just beautifully. Susan was fantastic.
We had a wonderful reception at Wagner's! We only had a few months to plan and they were very accommodating. The ladies that we worked with were very gracious and helpful. They gave us plenty of leave to view the room whenever we needed to and come in the day before to set up! Day of came and attention to detail was flawless. They were on hand personally to make sure everything went smoothly. The food was fantastic, I highly recommend the filet. Everyone had more than enough to eat and drink. ( The kids thought the Shirley Temples were a blast! ) We used one of the ballrooms and it worked perfectly for about 100 people. (Set up to dance, eat and Mingle) The fireplace and bar Reception Area were beautiful for the cocktail reception. (Spend the extra few bucks for the apps, they went over big). My grandma is 95 and the bathrooms were easy for her to use and get to. All 6 of my bridesmaids and myself were able to spruce up in the adjoining pamper room. I would definitely and already have recommended Wagner's for any type of reception be it a wedding or party. They worked within our budget and we were not disappointed! Our Ballroom came pre-lit with some beautiful twinkle lights and decorative sash work around the chandeliers. It gave the perfect touch to our night. Susan and Mary were wonderful, the chef even was available to go over dietary restrictions and details of his menu. ( We had vegans and celiac allergies) I did not expect all the extra touches that came with Wagner's, but we definitely enjoyed them. Thank you Wagner's for making our wedding reception wonderful! Sincerely, the Borrellos.
We decided to host our rehearsal dinner at Wagner's! It was wonderful! The service was great, the food was good and it was perfect for our guests. We were able to socialize and move around much easier than being in a restaurant. I would recommend this venue for either a rehearsal or wedding!
My Husband and I just got married on September 23rd. We chose Wagner's for our reception hall. The staff there were so helpful and just so nice. I felt like they were family. The food was amazing. I would defiantly recommend Wagner's.
Wagners of Westlake was absolutely amazing. The venue was beautiful and the staff was impeccable! Mary was wonderful from the start of my planning process to the very end. The day of my wedding Mary made sure all of the details were in place, fixed my dress before going down the aisle and she was always readily available if needed without being intrusive. The food was amazing. Every guest complimented the food stating it was the “best they ever had”. The entire staff was 100% on point through every process. I was complimented on my decor and they made me feel like I was the best and most beautiful bride that ever walked through their doors! I would recommend Wagners of Westlake a million times over! Words cannot completely explain how truly great they are or how appreciative of them I am!
We absolutely LOVED working with Wagner's. Being a same-sex couple we had many fears going into the planning process, but Wagner's was completely accepting and so helpful. They made sure every detail was taken care of and always listened to our questions and concerns. They truly went out of their way to make us feel as special as any two loving people should feel on their big day. Wish we could do it all over again. Highly recommend Wagner's and their friendly staff!
Wagner's was a great place for our wedding reception! We chose the all-inclusive sit down dinner option, and were so glad we did. Every item was prepared perfectly, we had multiple guests raving about how it was the best filet they ever had. The overall service was exceptional. Every step of the way, Susan and Mary offered great suggestions and were accommodating to all of our needs. From last minute seating changes to "calming the bride down" due to unexpected gaffes with the DJ company, they went above and beyond to make sure the reception went off smoothly. One highlight was that my maid of honor and I decorated the outdoor patio area with lights and a light tree, and Wagner's went ahead and put out cocktail tables with linen that matched our reception colors to make the area more welcoming. This was a surprise (no-charge!!) extra that Susan and Mary did on their own - it was a wonderful addition that I never would have thought of. We enjoyed our experience at Wagner's so much, my husband and I continually joke about wanting to do it again in a few years!
Phenomenal. Mary was the one we worked with, she made everything so simple and perfect. I wouldn't change a thing about that night. They took care of everything and the place was stunning!!!
I was married at Wagners on 5/20/17. We had our ceremony in one ballroom and our reception in the ballroom across the hall, our bridal party and our guest loved the convenience of everything being at one location. I would like to note that because this is a venue where multiple events can occur at once we were a bit hesitant at first but I must say had we not known a prom was going on in the other ballrooms the night of our wedding we wouldn't have known. The facility did a good job at separating the building into essentially 2 parts for the prom and my wedding that evening. Also, so many of our guests told us the food, both appetizers and dinner, was some of the best wedding food they had ever had.
Wagner's was the perfect place for our wedding. We recently got married this past November. We worked with Mary from the beginning to the end and everything was absolutely perfect. We had our reception in the East Room and it looked amazing. Everything came together exactly how we had pictured. All the planning was well laid out and put into place with zero issues. We would highly recommend Wagner's!
Mary was wonderful! She helped us every step of the way and took care of every detail up until the cocktail hour!
Wagner's of Westlake was the perfect venue for our wedding. From the first time we stepped through the doors, their professionalism was astounding. Susan was wonderful showing us the ballrooms and discussing our options with us. We knew after our first meeting with Susan that we had found our venue. We scheduled another visit with our parents to get their input as well, and Susan and staff were helpful as always answering their questions. The event coordinators were only a call or email away, and they were always happy to answer our questions with their years of knowledge and experience. As our big day came near, we discovered that we would not be available to set our hall the night before, but as always, Susan reassured us that they would be able to set the hall for us for the day of our dreams. We had a meeting to share our vision and centerpieces with the staff, and we were not disappointed. Walking into the Grand Ballroom the day of our wedding was just as I had envisioned. Everything was perfect, the food was fantastic, and the night went perfectly smooth. We can't imagine having our wedding anywhere else. The experience ,and professionalism of all at Wagners is unbeatable, and we would happily hold another event at this venue.
Prior to the wedding - every time we told family and friends that our wedding would be at Wagner's, they would say "I've been to a wedding there" and "the food was great!" We felt from the start that Wagner's was very experienced and knew what they were doing. They were very upfront with their pricing and what we were told was exactly what we were charged. Mary and Susan were very accommodating to our specific needs and requests for our wedding day. Our guests had a great time and enjoyed the beautiful ballroom.
Susan at Wagner's was a godsend!! Our initial venue double booked our day and we were left without a venue at about 60 days out- talk about panicking!! So while gathering together what was left of our day, I started looking for another venue. I ran across Wagner's and always remembered them from my sister's high school awards ceremonies and thought hey this might work.... We ended up calling and making an appointment just to go over pricing and my mother and I were so happy with the package and quote we negotiated -we ended up booking the day and leaving a deposit. They worked with us through all of the details and offered great ideas when were just stuck and a little burned out. Weddings are tough!! So Let's forward to the big day- We decided to exchange our vows there as well so as not to make it confusing for our guests having to drive to one place first then another. The ballroom turned out amazing!! perfect venue for our group and a great place to exchange vows, we had more than enough room so it was perfect. Susan was nothing short of a miracle that day helping us get through with our precession, making sure no one interrupted our ceremony and getting us through to the cocktail and app hour Whew!! we made it :) The food on the buffet was absolutely spectacular and going with the chef carved prime rib gave it that extra something we were looking for. Trust me, you cant go wrong with it. After the dinner service, they quickly and quietly tore down the buffet and moved us seamlessly into the next phase- the party!! The its ok we got through it with no major disasters and let your hair down part of the night and it was just perfect!! I cant thank Susan or the staff enough for all of their help and in rescuing our special day they went above and beyond what was expected. So thank you Susan and Wagner's for making our day wonderful for both us and our guests!!!
I would give Wagners 10 stars if I was able to! We had both our ceremony & our reception at Wagners and I was blown away by how amazing they both were! The food was great, the bar had an awesome selection, and everyone at the reception complimented on how beautiful everything was. Mary & Susan went above and beyond to make sure that our wedding and reception was perfect! Thank you Wagners for making our wedding truly a great night to remember! 💓 Guests loved it, all hired vendors loved it, and we loved everything about it!!
Wagners venue was perfect for our wedding reception. They were very affordable, flexible and accommodating all the way up to my wedding day and through the reception. Even though the wedding party was running late to arrive to the reception and they had another event to serve, they still managed to get the food out quickly once we arrived. The bartender was GREAT! My guests said nothing but good things about the bartender and the venue. Everyone had a great time and the food was delicious. I do wish that the lights were able to be dimmed more in the ballroom while guests were dancing - I'm not sure if the lights were unable to be dimmed or if they forgot to dim them. However the lighting didn't seem to stop people from having fun. I highly recommend Wagners!! I looked at a good amount of venues before choosing a place and Wagners definitely seemed the most professional and accommading in the area. The staff is also very nice and easy to work with.
Wagner's of Westlake was the first and only venue we ever looked at. My husband's parents had their wedding reception at Wagner's and raved about how wonderful it was which is why we decided to go check it our for ourselves. We walked into the grand ballroom and lost our breaths. It was more beautiful than we could ever have dreamed of. Mary Crawford, along with the rest of the wonderful staff members, went above and beyond to accommodate our wedding. Each and every question we had was promptly answered. We were able to come into the hall early to set up our decor and centerpieces 3 days before the wedding since there was not an event in the grand ballroom. This was very helpful. Mary was there for us answering our questions, and she even helped us drape the shears on our cake table!! Talk about being there for your customers!! Wagner's food was out of this world. We had a buffet dinner with prime rib carving station, chicken marsala, penne pasta with vegetables, roasted potatoes, ambrosia, side salads, and green beans with almonds. The guests marveled at the food along with us! The appetizers, and late night bites were also delectable. Thank you for everything. We are so thrilled to have had our wedding at Wagner's of Westlake and will forever highly recommend this company to everyone that we know!
I had my commitment reception at wagner's. The staff was very helpful.The food and service were excellent. Susan was so helpful to us in planning the room was decorated beautifully.
Where do I even begin? The staff at Wagner's is nothing shy of amazing. Rooms were very clean, organized and gorgeous. They did not treat us as if we were a couple that needed a wedding venue, they treated us like family and made us feel very special on our special day. Being a business professional myself, you cannot put a price on this type of quality, professionalism, and attention to detail. There were many things that we were not prepared for that they assisted us with. We will be going to Wagner's for all of our events in the future. If anyone is looking for a wedding venue, look no further. Wagner's is the place!
We used Wagners for our wedding in June and they completely exceeded our expectations. We recently moved to North Carolina, but our wedding was in Ohio. Susan, Mary, and Nancy all went out of their way to make sure everything would be perfect the night of the wedding. We received so many compliments on the venue, especially the food! They were around all night to make sure everything went well, and we ended up not having any major issues. Thank you to everyone at Wagner's who made our reception so amazing.
Susan and the ladies at Wagner's made everything perfect for our Wedding day. The food was great, staff was friendly and helpful, and the bartender was awesome. I can't think of anything negative mention about the room we were in or staff that served us. The only trouble we ran into was due to an issue nobody could have helped. While the issue forced a room change a couple of weeks before our big day, and could have easily turned into a horror story, the ladies at Wagner's saved the day by offering a larger room and a couple of other perks at no charge. I can only hope that one day one of our many friends decides to get married at Wagner's so we can enjoy the whole place again. I would totally recommend Wagner's of Westlake to ANYONE getting married in Ohio. My wife and I live in Akron and it was well worth the hour drive North for our wedding.
We had a great experience with wagners! The staff was very friendly and helpful! The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is my vegetarians did not get their meals. Also after dinner the servers were cleaning tables and threw out our guests favors that were on the table while they were out dancing! Overall everything went off without a hitch!
