Hello Tannaz, Yesenia,

Thank you and your team for making our Mom’s birthday celebration so special and successful. Everything from the set up, food and service was well done.  A special thanks to the kitchen manager and servers who made a point of being responsive and making sure our 90 year young Mom was taken care of, as were our guests.
My appologies for not sending this earlier. I was recovering from having too much fun!
I will certainly keep your Centre in mind for future events and referrals. On behalf of my Mom and family, thank you again, and I wish you and your families good health always.
Warm regards,
Mary Curcio

Hi Tannaz,

How are you? I hope you are well.

Dianne and Marvin are currently away for their honeymoon at the moment so she won’t be able to leave any feedback until they get back.

However here is my review.

I’ve worked with Brighton countless of times in the past and I’m never disappointed. The team at Brighton are extremely reliable from the planning stage all the way up to the execution phase on the day of the wedding. You, Yesenia, Mayurin and the rest of the staff are the definition of great team work.

Mayurin(the venue manager) was extremely accommodating and helpful even with last minute requests. The service was amazing, the staff are always smiling and friendly and the food was delish – it left guests and their family members a day to forever remember.

Dianne and Marvin’s wedding was a success because your team diligently worked with ours to ensure that everything went smoothly throughout the night.

I will highly recommend Brighton to all my future clients because the service and the reliability has always been consistent!

You guys have been amazing and continue to be amazing and you deserve all the praise because you’ve built and trained wonderful employees that are well-versed in weddings and events.

Until the next wedding together -thank you for having me and it was again, a pleasure to work you and the whole entire team at Brighton!

Cheers,

Aussie Marie and the An Elegant Soirée Team

Hi Tannaz,

We had an amazing time!

Our guests and the Honouree of the night thoroughly enjoyed the evening, the venue and food.

I would like to say a BIG Thank You to Mayuran, he was such a delight to work with during the evening and was very attentive to our needs and ensuring everything was running smoothly and on time.

Thank you again for helping us to bring the event together. We will definitely be back for future events.

Brighton Convention & Events Centre defines perfection with regards to banquet halls. My wife and I viewed 5 different halls prior to visiting Brighton, and were blown away when we left our first meeting. They exceed expectations on many levels. Our first meeting with the general manager Tannaz went extremely well. She was very inviting and not only made us feel at home but worked hard to accommodate our requests and demonstrate passion about our wedding. Rather than try to sell us, she tried to help us and showed care for our wedding. She was kind and informative and explained everything in detail to ensure we completely understood what we were getting.

 

Anytime we e-mailed Tannaz, she responded instantly! Now this is rare when it comes to most banquet halls. She treated her clients with respect and made sure she provided answers anytime we had questions in a time sensitive manner. If we had any issues, Tannaz went over and above to provide solutions. Tannaz made our wedding planning process a lot less stressful because she actually cared about our wedding and even though it’s her job, it felt like she was a part of our team. She was exceptional and a huge reason our wedding went as smoothly as it did. We can’t thank her enough.

 

Further, we had the opportunity to meet with Chef Carmelo who was extremely professional and wanted to make sure we were satisfied with the menu and how the food tasted. When we gave him our feedback, he made changes and created the dish exactly how we wanted it. You couldn’t ask for anything better than that. All our guests could not stop talking about how amazing the food was. And not just one item, but our entire menu from the fish to the pasta. Chef Carmelo exceeded our expectations with the food and we are extremely thankful.

 

As everything was going extremely well prior to the wedding, Brighton continued to deliver exceptional service and care the night of our wedding. The floor manager Mayuran was exceptional during our wedding. He was always ensuring that everything was going according to plan from the décor, initial set up, food set up, to cake, to music, to everything. This guy was unbelievable! He was always in constant communication with us making sure we were happy and seeing whether we needed anything. His staff was on time with appetizers followed by dinner and dessert. You couldn’t have asked for a better manager that night. My wife and I had zero worries that night because we knew he was taking care of everything. Thank you for making our wedding special!

Michelle & Brian

Good Morning Tannaz,
Agnieszka and I just wanted to thank you so much for making our special day perfect. You and your staff did such a great job making sure everything ran smoothly. Many of our guests commented on how nice the venue was, how great the food was and how friendly the staff was. Thank you so much for all the help and for making our wedding a great one!

Hello Tannaz,
We had a fantastic experience at the Brighton- you guys were really great!
Right from the beginning, I thought you Tannaz were great working with my wedding coordinator and helpful and attentive to our requests. We were able to negotiate things that worked for us and within our budget and it made us very happy to work with you and to come to the Brighton.
The food was amazing- we got rave reviews from all of the guests, and the most favoured dish was by far the bombetta! Andrew and I both didn’t get to eat too much as we were running around mingling with our guests, but we remember how delicious the food was at our tasting! I also wanted to personally thank the chef for being attentive to my allergies and especially the allergies of the guests. One guest in particular with many allergies came up to thank me for making sure he was able to actually eat the meal! The service was also too notch- your servers were quick to serve and get food out! The only bad part about this was that some guests said they were dancing or grabbing a drink and their unfinished food was taken away- that’s how efficient your servers were! Hahah we joked that at our next wedding we would make sure to have red and green flip cards at each spot to signal when it was good to take a dish or when to stop and leave it haha if the food wasn’t so delicious but I think everyone was very happy with the quantity and quality of food. We also can’t thank John enough for including the fish course- very generous of him!
The hall itself was set up just the way we wanted it. Everything looked elegant and bridal inside. The front hall was clean and a lot of people commented on the nice venue choice.
We also appreciated having more than one bar tender to keep the guests happy, and also that we got a bottle of scotch and grand marnier included in our package to keep the elders happy.
Overall, the experience was very positive and we would not hesitate to recommend this venue to any of our friends! The customer service and client oriented attitude were top notch! Whether it was quick replies to emails or answering our silly questions over the phone I was very comfortable dealing with all of the staff at the Brighton!
Thank you for making our wedding so memorable!!
-Amanda and Andrew

Dear Tannaz

I just want to thank you for your patience, professionalism
and tact.  You were put in a very difficult situation and you did
all you could to avert a disaster.

Manny, many thanks to Chef and his staff, he did an awesome
job although we were an hour behind, he managed to serve a
hot meal, my hats off to him. Comments I heard were the food
was tasty and thanks for the fresh carrots.  Amazing.

As a small token of our appreciation, please accept the Swag
Bag and flowers I left in your office. Kudos to your staff for
their efficient service.

Once again, many thanks, and I look forward to working with
you again in the near future.

Warm regards.

Hello Tannaz,

I just wanted to let you know that my wedding was a great success thanks to you and to the staff at the hall.

You were all very accommodating and helpful, starting with when we initially booked, followed by the event you held which helped us get a hold on other missing pieces of our wedding  and lastly with the execution of the wedding.

My guests had nothing but kind words in regards to the staff that waited on them pointing out that the service was excellent.

Thank you all for being a part of our special day and ensuring that my event was a great success.

I will definitely continue to recommend the Brighton for all future events

Thanks again,

Fatima

Hi!

I would like to say that Ivan and I were well taken care of from beginning to end.  Although we didn’t get the chance to decorate the day before, you managed to decorate the tables as per instructed.

Thank you!

Hello Tannaz,

 

I have nothing but good words about our recent event at The Brighton.  It was truly an amazing experience from our first contact with you, Tannaz until the end of the party.  Everyone did a wonderful job in making sure that our party was a success including the floor/event manager, bartender, all servers and of course Yesenia.  The food was excellent too.

 

Jade’s 18th Birthday Celebration was definitely a SUCCESS.

 

Thank you again.

Good Morning,

I wanted to say THANK YOU, for everyone help with organizing, and a SPECIAL THANK YOU, to the amazing staff which made our event a very positive and enjoyable experience.The room was beautiful, the food was very good, and the staff was amazing.
Thanks to Nate, Susana and our Bar tender (Im sorry I forgot his name). We could not be happier with the service and overall experience.
We will definitely book more family events with you.
All the best.
 (October 2015)

Hi Tannaz,
I hope all is great with you.  Thank you for following up and I don’t think words can express how wonderful we think you and the whole team at the Brighton are.  Yes, the wedding was a HUGE success and EVERYONE had wonderful things to say about the service and the hall.  In fact, some people talked about having events at the hall ie my friend will be doing an 80th for her father in a couple of years and is thinking of holding it at the Brighton.  We still have people emailing us about how much fun they had and how wonderful everything was.
First, as the person who we first came into contact with, I have to thank you Tannaz for being TOTALLY awesome in how you worked with us.  You were patient, helpful, accommodating and always a delight to work with. The same to Yesenia, she too was always helpful, accommodating and wonderful to work with also. I love love love you guys :0)
Miran and the rest of the staff that worked with us were also awesome and thoughtful.  All of our attendees said the service was beyond great and I couldn’t agree more. Miran, I cannot say enough good things about, he’s a star and Henri too who made sure that the wedding party got hors d’oeuvres and cocktails at the reception and whom we had a few laughs with.  Thanks also to Carmelo the chef extraordinaire as the feedback about the food was all awesome.  The food was delish :0)
I almost wish I had another event to come and hang out with everyone again :0)  Trust me, we have been screaming your praises to anyone that will listen and I will ALWAYS direct anyone I know to your hall for any function they mention they are planning.  I have planned many an event for work and outside of work and have never experienced such wonderful service.  You guys are the ultimate and should pat yourselves on the back.
Thank you for making our day a true fairy tale.
With love to all of you

Hi Tannaz,

Thank you for helping us plan our special day. All the planning went smoothly and the actual wedding day turned out great!
All the staff of the Brighton Event Centre was helpful and so accommodating. We would like to especially thank you, Yesenia, and Mayuran for the great job you all did. On the night of the wedding, the staff was very friendly and it was very nice to have them check up on Andre and I to ensure everything was running the way we liked it to. We had several guests comment on how great the service was. Please send our thanks to the chef who did a great job with the Green Collard soup, our families and friends really enjoyed it!
In regards to the entrees (Salmon, Beef, Veg option), we noticed that the food was prepared and tasted differently than the food we were served at the taste testing. Although they were different than we expected, it all still tasted great!
Thank you again for your help in making our special day as memorable as it was.
Amanda and Andre

Hi Tannaz/Yesenia

Thank you both for helping to make my day very special!!

My party was fabulous!!!

My guests are still raving about the food!!

The food was great!!

The service was wonderful through out the evening.  Please thank the staff!!

 (September 2015)

Hi Tannaz:From our initial contact with you till the culmination of the event we only have positive things to say.
We were very impressed with your professionalism, attention to detail and putting every effort to make us the happy customer
You and your team did a wonderful job and we have no hesitation in saying that if another opportunity arises Brighton will be our top choice.
The only other comment we would like to make was that we had less than 400 guests, some of the family members didn’t eat because we were pretty busy with taking care of the guests. We have a feeling that there was lot of left over food.  We wish we were allowed to take some food home, so that we could have eaten it later. Any way our guests liked the food and the service.
Thank you Tannaz for making our event a successful one.
Have a very pleasant long weekend.
Kind Regards

Hi Tannaz,

I wanted to thank you again for the wonderful customer service you & your team provided for us on the day of the event. Everything was perfect and we received just positive feedback from everyone who attended. Your staff was phenomenal and really helped make the day go smoothly.

Thank you so much again!!!

 (May 2015)

Hi Tannaz,
First, let me thank you for a fantastic venue!! Everyone was impressed with the setup, food tables and hot hor d’oeuvres….very nice, very elegant.
The slide show was a great success and I would advise anyone having a reunion type party to use the system…..many comments on the pictures.
The negative: We had quite a back up with the selling of bar tickets. Only two sellers and both lines were very long. This went on until just after 10:00 PM. The bar was also slow during this time tying to keep up as there was only 2-3 people at each one. Maybe selling tickets before the bars open and adding the extra staff to the bar for the first hour or so would be beneficial?
 Personally, June and I thank you very much for all you have done. Your understanding of our situation, your help in providing a solution that allowed us to carry on and have a very successful reunion party as well as fill the hall with 750 alumni and teachers. Again your staff, the food and hall……. excellent!
Thank you Tannaz for helping make Sir Wilfrid Laurier C.I. 50th reunion Pub Night a great success!!
Marty and June Lamoureux
 (May 2015)

Hi Tannaz,
On behalf of our group, I formally would like to thank you for an eventful evening. Your staff accommodated and supported the logistics of the night very well. Juliano, the bartender was fantastic and I also made sure his time serving our group was a pleasant experience as well.
With great gratitude, we would likely see University of Toronto booking future events at the Brighton. We look forward in bringing future business and working with you again.
Thank you for making it so easy.
Best regards,

Thank you!
We have absolutely nothing negative to say about our experience with the Brighton. From our first visit to the venue up until our wedding day  things could not have gone more smoothly. Our guests have been raving about the venue/food total experience since Saturday. Your staff was so accommodating the day of…contributing to our day being absolutely perfect. In my opinion don’t change a thing!
Thank you all so much!

Hello Tannaz,

 

We had a wonderful time.  From the start you were very cordial, and very accommodating and I appreciate it very much.  Your staff including Nate was so professional helpful and very friendly.  I have absolutely nothing negative to say about the service.  The meal was also delicious (that’s what I heard from our guests).  I was too wound up to eat.  The venue was very elegant and we absolutely enjoyed every moment of the time there from the day I came into inquire about renting that venue to the end of the night on Saturday.  I would absolutely use your accommodations again and I would recommend it to anyone who wants something elegant.

 

Thank you so much for the excellent service (April 2015)


good morning,

I just want to say thank you for the beautiful set-up and an excellent job with the waiters.
I was very much happy with the result of the event.
Our guests were all very happy and can’t sstop talking about it.

Thank you again,

Rose (March 2015)


Good evening Tannaz,
I hope that you had a wonderful family day with your loved ones.
James and I would like to thank you and your team wholeheartedly for the extraordinary job you’ve  done hosting our wedding reception Feb. 15,2015. We are so grateful to have met you. You were easy to talk to,flexible and understanding on minor issues which arise. You gave advice that would help us have the best day ever. The main entree and finger foods were delicious except for the (salmon and cream cheese roll) during the cocktail hour.
Nevertheless,that does not take away from all the positives of the day. The venue itself is a beauty on its own,the grand staircase and chandeliers are exquisite! The staff and management behind the event is what makes it what it is,the word to describe it would be GRAND!  James and I will be more than happy to recommend The Brighton Event Centre. Our guest I am sure will do the same. As you may of heard our Limo was late by 2 hours in picking up the bridal party. We arrived when the ceremony should have ended Your assistant Yesenia was amazing she saw my tears and frustrations and she said “don’t  worry about anything Lorna we will take care of everything” so she did! Thank you Yesenia for your kindness and compassionate heart you saw a need and you did what needed to be done.  The incompetence of someone else almost ruined the most important day of our lives,your team was there to make our day what it was meant to be. Mayuran,you and your serving team did an extraordinary job. You served us timely and efficiently and most of all the smiles and polite mannerism were obvious. Our choice of Salmon and stuffed chicken with spinach and mushrooms with veggies and roasted potatoes were yummy! We have no regrets! There were table talks about the chicken and Salmon so our compliments to the chef! Tannaz,thank you,thank you,thank you for an extraordinary job on making our wedding reception Perfect! Our day ended with lots of Joy and laughter! Warm Regards and Blessings. The happy couple,
James and Lorna Jordan (February 2015)

Hi Tannaz,
First of all, let me say, that overwhelmingly, everyone liked the venue. We heard nothing but compliments from our guests. In fact, several of the guests have had functions at the Brighton
( Baccus.) As I mentioned to you before, this will be an annual event and we would like to use the facilities again next year. We would like to build a relationship with the Brighton.
From the first time I met you, you and your staff were wonderful. You were very kind in letting us change the dates for our function….thank you for your understanding!
You took the time to answer our questions and accommodated our needs.
Thank you for letting us have the hall the night before. It was essential that we transport all of our boxes to the site the day before as it would have been too difficult to do transporting and set up on the same day.
At he event, the food was excellent! Everyone enjoyed it. It came out hot. The portions were generous. The bartender was lovely. All of your servers were polite and accommodating.
Overall, we had a wonderful time.
We would recommend your facilities to anyone.
Kind regards,

 

 

Hi Tannaz,
 
Thank you for all of your help in making our wedding perfect!

Hi Tannaz,

Just wanted to thank you and the whole staff for making our event  a success. 
We were happy of how the reception was handled. The wait staff headed by Junior were nice and accomodating.
 
Thank you, we had great time.

Hello Tannaz,

 From the first evening, Samantha, Jose and I, met with you, was the beginning of a wonderful and memorable experience. Your warmth, calmness, professionalism, experience and cheerfulness were captivating.

You guided us and made us aware of a special package being offered to the end April, which we were very happy of and went with that.

When we left your office, we knew we had made the right decision in having the wedding reception there.

I made many phone calls and some visits to you, which were all received in a cheerful and very helpful manner.

Yesenia was very lovely and helpful, with our special request and notes, also having us store our three cake boxes, mirrors and wagon the afternoon before.

 Samantha and Jose had a wonderful and lovely evening of food tasting. Mayuran (Junior) was absolutely amazing and very professional, he made notes and all were followed thru. The person serving that evening, was also very friendly and a delight as well.

 Upon my entrance into the foyer, I just recall saying ” WOW”, everything was all set up so lovely for the cocktail hour. The servers were all absolutely amazing and the flow of the h’orderves and mocktails was fantastic and I have to say, they were all so good,  many thanks for thisJ.

 Samantha and Jose are still raving of the sweet table and her Portuguese tarts – absolutely wonderful.

 Tannaz, you and the staff, worked so very well with our wedding day planner Aaron, with anything he requested. Many thanks for this as well.

I would like to say a special “Thank You” for being present at the night of the reception and taking the time to come by, to see if everything is ok.

Indeed, you are the BEST and amazing in what you do, with every detail followed through.

 My hope is, that I can experience this all over again, for any future function I may have.

 With much appreciation and gratitude.

Gloria

Thank you for the amazing experience and incredible food. We had several guests comment on how amazing the food was. As the bride to be-I wish I ate more of it now looking back. It was a pleasure working with you all. We will be back.Thank You 😀

Good Morning Tannaz and Yesenia,
On behalf of the Hospitality Committee I would like to thank you, John and the entire Brighton staff for helping A.B.L.E. successfully host our 22nd Annual Scholarship Awards Ball. 
It was a great pleasure to work with you all!
Thanks again and have a great day. 
Kind regards,
Maureen

Hello Tannaz, 
As the dust has settled a little, and I’ve had a chance to sleep (finally!).  I sincerely want to thank you, and all of the staff at the Brighton, SOO much for all of your help leading up to, and on the day of our wedding! John, you,Yesenia, and the entire team were so easy and honestly fantastic to work with! It truly meant so much to us that you were always available over phone, email and in-person to ensure that all of our questions were properly addressed, and your service was always prompt and reliable. 
 
On the day of our wedding, everything was seamless!! Your staff made sure that the we had enough to eat and drink all night. We had a wedding of almost 300 people and all of my guests could not stop raving about the food! Honestly, my family and my guests have been to many weddings, showers, baptisms and parties at many different banquet halls in the west-end and across the city; the food at my wedding was by far the best! Every table and every plate had the same quality- a high quality- of service and food. Several of my guests actually compared the food at the Brighton to high-end Toronto restaurants, and said the beef at the Brighton was actually better! Having good food at a wedding is very, very important. We didn’t have good food- we had GREAT food that my guests are still craving!  
 
The sweet table was spectacular- the best I’ve ever seen- rich with decadent desserts. The late night sliders and poutine stations were also a big hit! 
 
In short, I am extremely satisfied with the high level of service and reliability of the staff at the Brighton. My wedding was a big success, and I look forward to hosting future events at the Brighton!! 
 
Thank you again for everything! 
Deborah & Alex

Hello Tannaz;
 
I wanted to reply to your note and advice you that all of us were extremely happy.  From
yourself, to your assistants; to your managers; waiting staff, bartenders; everyone!
Everyone that came in contact with us were most hospitable; helpful, courteous and
professional.  
 
Our event was a huge success; it took lots of planning on our part and you ensured that
all of our wishes, ideas and planning came together without a hitch.
 
The food, the buffet layout, the attention to health, cleanliness and service was most
impressionable also.  
 
Our many thanks John, for coming and spending some time with us and assuring us that
all was just fine.
 
You have a beautiful venue; please, keep it that way.
 
Thank you to all for a unforgettable night.
 
 
Maria Lombardi

Good Morning Tannaz
 
On behalf of Samir and our families, we would like to thank you for making our special day so special! Everything ran so smoothly on the day of the event, and we were treated very well by staff including yourself.
 
Everyone was very attentive to our concerns on the day of the event (from preparing the “prayer room” to helping lower the music in the hall next door during cocktail hour, to bringing us appetizers in the bridal suite). The dessert table was beautiful and the food was perfect. 
 
In the months leading up to the wedding, you and Yesenia were so helpful in helping us plan the event. We were given advice in terms of our food selections and the general planning of the wedding. You were both very attentive to our concerns as well.

Thank you again,

 
Fatima and Samir 

Hi Tannaz,

Thank you to you and all of your staff for helping to make our celebration a great success.

Everyone loved the Brighton facility and the food and service.

Hello Tannaz,
Overall, Abraham and I were very happy with the general service the Brighton provided and were most impressed with the price of the venue and meal pricing. Very affordable compared to other venues…I hope you can stay this way as your key marketing point! 
 
THANK YOU TANNAZ and team for all your help, patience and professional service this past year!
 
Hikari & Abraham Hum


Hi Tannaz,
 
Thank u so much for making our wedding day so special. You guys did such a good job and everyone loved the food especially the hors oeuvres! They tasted delicious!
 
You have been so accommodating and have always been so prompt in responding which as a stressed out bride makes a world of difference!
 
Thank u thank u,
Priya and Maurice   


Hi Tannaz,
 
I would like to thank you and the staff for a wonderful evening.  Everyone made the upmost to make the evening a great success!!  Please thank everyone again!!
 
Thank You

 

Hi Yesenia,

 I would like to thank you for everything you did for my daughter’s bridal shower .

The food was very good, I thanked Carmelo that day.

Also I would like to thank the staff, they were amazing. Those young boys and girls did an awesome job.

Service was great and they help with everything we needed. I’m sorry I forgot their names already, I should’ve send the email on Feb 24th when the names were still fresh in my mind.

And we were so pleasantly surprised at the end of the day, when a waiter came with the leftover food to take home.

Once again thank you everyone for a great job.

Sincerely,

Zoe Caramihai

(Mother of the bride)


Hello,
We had a great time working with Tannaz and the Brighton group. From the beginning
she was very accomodating and had all the necessary equipment that we needed for our
event. She worked well with the decorators and caterers to meet their needs.
 
When I entered the hall on the day of the event, I was greeted by Lida who took over
every single little task that I would have had to do myself. 
 
The venue was perfect, clean and spacious. Would recommend it to anyone needing
some space to hold a special event.
 
Thank you!

Hi Tannaz!
 
Thanks for the follow up email. We enjoyed our wedding banquet so much at Brighton!
 
We have been asking around our guests and they all had fun! There are couple things
that they like the most:
 
1. They all loved the food!! All the dishes are excellent. Some said they love the beef,
some said they love the salmon, so I guess both mains are good! And most people liked
the salad, especially the salad dressing! Oh, and the ice-cream! Our guests enjoyed it so
much. So overall, the feedback from our friends is that the food is great at Brighton &
that they enjoyed it very much!
 
2. Servers are great too! Most of them are very polite and helpful.
 
3. They loved the open bar! We are glad our package comes with that option.
 
And for ourselves, I’d like to take this opportunity to say a sincere thank you to you and
Yesenia for all your help. Both of you have been very patient and helpful with all our
questions and requests. We also find it very convenient that there are admin staff in
the office anytime we drop by with questions. It would be such a hassle if we had to make
appointments all the time.
 
Please also thank the kitchen staff for us, we love their food!! And of course, please
thank the servers for us too, our guests loved their service. 🙂
 
We’re glad we chose to host our wedding banquet at Brighton, we would definitely
recommend this place to our friends. And if we ever plan to throw another party again,
we would definitely consider Brighton!
 
Thanks again for all the help Tannaz! We enjoyed working with you!
 
Kind Regards,
Judy & Kenny

 Dear John and the staff at The Brighton:

 I just wanted to send you a note of thanks for all of your hard work and stellar organization of our ‘5Th Annual Celebrating Women and Youth Who Have Triumphed’ Awards Gala on November 15, 2013.

 The banquet manager was fantastic and quick to remedy any issues or answer any questions.  He was the epitome of professionalism and a great pleasure to work with.  Because of his efficiency and the amazingly attentive and hard working staff, our event was a great success.

 Your office staff, particularly Yesenia and Tannaz, were kind, helpful and extremely supportive.  You can count on our business for our next gala!  We will be in touch soon! 

 Warm Regards,

Cecilia Tement


Dear Tannaz,
 
The wedding was a great success! Thank you for all of your help in making it possible. Family and friends were very impressed with your venue.
 
Your staff was very attentive, making sure that all guests were well looked after.  The cocktail hour had plenty of food and your staff circulated many times. For dinner, having bottled water, both plain and carbonated, was appreciated by guests who did not want wine. The food was wonderful, in fact Sabryna said it was actually better than at her tasting. Table #8 guest with food restrictions was very happy with the attention which she received from Suzanne and the food that the chef prepared for her. The vegetarian option was also delicious. 
 
The manager Mark was very helpful making sure that the positioning of items was correct for the ceremony. He ensured that the ceremony chairs were quickly removed so guests had ample space to walk in.
 
Sabryna and her Matron of Honour both work for the Marriott Hotel chain. Due to the fabulous venue and wonderful attention we received, they have already recommended the Brighton to some of their clients. Talking with some of your prospective clients while I was setting things up on Friday, I definitely recommended your venue and that was before the wedding had taken place. If they have their event there, I am sure that they will be as equally pleased.
 
 
Sincerely,
The Baehr Family


Dear Tannaz,

We would like to take this first opportunity to thank you wholeheartedly for your excellent arrangements regarding our function at Grand Baccus last night to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. The pre-dinner Cocktails and Hors D’oeuvres were handled with superb efficiency by your serving team, who kept ‘a service with a smile’. The quality of the food at dinner was exactly what we tasted and was served by your staff in a most efficient manner. All in all, it was a most successful celebration, thanks to the excellent service we received from yourselves. Please extend our sincere thanks to all those who served us, and primarily to yourself for arranging it all. Our guests were impressed by what was offered.

Have a happy New Year and may it be a healthy, peaceful and prosperous year to you.

Diana & Ted Abdo      


Dear Tannaz,

Thank you for all of your help and support during our big day. Our family and especially Patrick and I were very happy with The Brighton’s services for our wedding function. 
 
Positive feedback:
-food was excellent (many guests came up to us to compliment the food)
-servers were prompt, friendly and amazing (especially the 2 women and 1 man who was serving the head table. They were so nice and helpful towards us.)
-venue was beautiful and very clean
-we appreciated having our cake wrapped and ready to go when we were leaving
-excellent customer service (especially allowing us to change our hall from B to A and not charging extra)
 
Negative feedback:
– It would’ve been a little less stressful if we had someone work with our DJ a bit more. This is probably not your fault but the DJ had the wrong song/bad timing with our music because he was confused about what was going on. It was difficult to coordinate with him because we wanted to make a grand entrance so we couldn’t run back and forth so it would’ve been helpful if we had someone from the hall act as an in between person. Anyways, in the end, this is very minor and not really negative on your part. 
 
Overall, our experience with The Brighton was fantastic. Everyone was so helpful and kind and we really appreciated your services, right from the beginning to the end. We will be highly recommending you guys to our family and friends.
 
Thank you greatly,
Patrick & Anika

Hi Tannaz,
 
Terribly sorry for the delay…we recently returned from our honeymoon and have been blitzed by work and family commitments!
 
Thank you for all of the great work done by GB.  Everything was absolutely lovely, and the staff that assisted during the night of our wedding were incredible and were super attentive!  All the best for the holidays and for the new year.  Please let me know if you have any other questions, etc.
 
Thanks,
Julie 

Hello Tannaz,
It has been a wonderful experience working with you and Lynne. Both you and Lynne were very easy to communicate with and the two of you were very accommodating to our needs/wants/requests, especially when it came to the food. We truly appreciate the additional food items and sauces and the food tasting that you allowed us to take home despite it being the fasting month. All our guests truly enjoyed the food. It was an amazing array of food that tasted impeccable – Most of our guests complemented the food, stating it’s the best wedding food they’ve ever had!

Despite us taking the larger hall, the tables and chairs were neatly arranged and did not feel empty or sparse. It was great that we could mix and match the premium linens to our liking as well.

Both Ahmed and I feel very satisfied and happy to have had our wedding at Grand Baccus. The ample parking was good and the hall is certainly very beautiful for special occasions. The bridal suite was very comfortable and the supplies provided in there came in very useful.

Overall, Ahmed and I, are truly happy with the service provided at Grand Baccus. The prompt responses and service received allowed us to successfully plan a wonderful wedding in less than a month. We will definitely recommend Grand Baccus to our friends and families. Thank you very much for everything.

Best Regards,
Inessa


Hi Nicole,
Hope you’re well. Just wanted to provide our feedback regarding our Wedding Reception at Grand Baccus…

We want to extend many thanks to Tony, Rocio and the entire Grand Baccus team for their efforts in making our wedding reception a wonderful success. We have to extend many thanks to Tony, Rocio and the GB staff for working with us to make sure our wedding menu was everything we wanted. Tony is the reason we decided to have our reception at Grand Baccus…we developed a great rapport right off the bat because he is genuine and was willing
to work with us to provide what we needed for an exceptional wedding reception. And that was achieved! Tony was more than willing to discuss, negotiate and work within our budget. He showed an interest helping us achieve our goals for the reception.

We’re still receiving compliments on the reception! The food was absolutely delicious and there was an abundance of it! The service was impeccable and staff was very attentive to guests needs and requests. I should also mention that we had a wonderful Floor Manager (Rocio), who was very attentive and connected with us to make certain we knew our options and made herself available to answer questions during the wedding preparation and the day of the wedding. She worked quickly and with great efficiency to ensure everything was in order. Nicole
was also a pleasure to speak with in coordinating the meetings held with Grand Baccus. She also made herself available for questions and concerns and was always accessible.

As mentioned, our guests are still raving! Grand Baccus was a wonderful experience and we would definitely love to have other events there again in future! GB is 10′s across the board!!!
Thank you all for the wonderful experience!

Warmest regards,
Krystal & Cliff Simmons

Hello,
My bridal shower was lovely. Everything went smoothly on my part as well as the hall. The staff is wonderful. Everyone was very friendly and diligent. Adriana was an absolute pleasure to work with. I would definitely recommend Grand Baccus to others.

Thank you to everyone who participated in making my shower as amazing as it was!!

Lyndsay Petkopoulos


Hi there,
We have absolutely nothing negative to say about our experience with grand baccus. From the moment we walked through the doors to the moment we left the hall at the reception, the staff were courteous, always putting us at ease, was there to answer all our questions, and willing to help in any way that they could. It is very stressful to plan a wedding – especially to plan a wedding that the guests will remember fondly, and the grand baccus put us at ease.

Our floor manager was fabulous. She was there in an instant when needed, and faded into the background when appropriate. She went above and beyond the call of duty with a simple fix when my dress bussel broke so that I could continue dancing. She took cues from us about the noise from the other hall. She was completely willing to do anything and everything to ensure that our day was stress free.

The office staff was amazing. They were never cross with us for calling several times to ask questions, or change things last minute. They were always reassuring that everything would run smoothly, and always had a smile on their faces to greet us.

The food at the wedding was great. Our guests were impressed with the meal.

Thank you again for everything. We had a wonderful wedding day because of the efforts of the grand baccus and it’s staff.

Giselle and Dimitrios Trikkas


We had our wedding reception at Grand Baccus in April 2012 — and it was fantastic! Their hall is very well maintained and they have some great spots for photographs indoors. But it’s their staff who make the difference. They were so methodical and got down to every single detail. They took my many questions patiently. I also had an outside caterer and they worked with him to accomodate every request. The hall looked fabulous on the day. When we got to the reception, everything was where it should be – perfect!!

My husband and I just recently had our wedding here. We had our ceremony and reception here along with our traditional chinese tea ceremony. We had a great experience from beginning to end. Right in the beginning we felt comfortable and welcome and we were accomodated to. Amazing service from the sales, to Nicole, the secretary to the floor manager. Available when we needed to talk to somebody about one concern or another (eg.food allergies, borrowing a coat rack, etc).

Grand Baccus also put so much extra details into the service. Our event went smoothly due to the coordination of our floor manager Adrianna with our wedding party. She checked in with us to make sure things were going well. She also added extra touches to our sweet table. Everybody commented on the amount of food that we had at our wedding (it was a lot), and we had great reviews about it. We were able to do a fusion mix of chinese and western food – and Grand Baccus accomodated for all of our guests food preferences and allergies. Our guests also commented to us about the amazing service that they experienced at our event. We are so happy with the quality of service we received – not to mention that it is a beautiful venue. Note: from the previous post, my husband sang at our wedding, and he mentioned that the accoustics at Grand Baccus was actually quite good – we were also lucky that the big hall next to ours was empty at the time – I don’t know if that had an effect.
