What our clients are saying...

Dear Paola and Agostino;

First and foremost, I want to say a big thank you for all your help and support with Robin and Maricar’s wedding. As a wedding planner, it is extremely important for me to only refer the best to my clients, and I truly feel that Columbus Event Centre not only lived up to that expectation but went above and beyond! Being readily available for countless meetings through phone, email and in person before the event, definitely helped ensure that their special day was executed without any concern. Your staff was extremely helpful, and even took the initiative to set everything up before I actually arrived at the venue from the Church, making my job that day so much easier. And not only is the Art Gallery/Rotunda a stunning location to have a wedding, but having access to the foyer with all the art exhibits truly gave guests a unique experience they will never forget! Together we created a day that Robin and Maricar will cherish forever, and I have the wonderful staff at Columbus Centre to thank!

We wanted to say a huge thanks for such an amazing event. The room looked amazing; the service was excellent, top quality and stress free. Your team is friendly and helpful, they are consummate professionals and yet warm and gentle. Your ability to support us in blending the various cultures, Canadian, Italian, Chinese and Scottish was second to none. The quality and quantity of food was unbelievable. A thousand thanks from the bottom of our hearts, we had an amazing event and that was in no small part to the Columbus Event Centre team. We will be singing your praises,

Dear Joe,

A huge, heartfelt thanks for all the effort that went into making Laura and Fab’s day so special everything was great. The food, and the service, were exceptional. The garden was absolutely beautiful. Our guests had wonderful compliments for the Chef and the staff. However, what they will most remember about Sala Caboto at Columbus Event Centre is the beauty of the garden. Many referred to it as a “hidden treasure”. It has always been Laura’s wish to have a garden wedding and Columbus Event Centre provided the perfect setting.

Dear Mr. Cosentino:

I would like to advise you of the excellent service that the Columbus Event Centre provided over the past couple of weeks as we were organizing and held our first Annual Associate meeting. With 270 associates from our two facilities, as well as the most senior Executives from our parent company, St. Joseph Corporation. The event went very smoothly and was a tremendous success.
Yours truly,

Dear Rose and Agostino,

I had such an amazing party at Columbus Event Centre, and it was an absolute pleasure dealing with you both. From the beginning I new it was a good match. Rose, you were cool, calm and reassuring and whatever I wanted seemed to be no problem. I needed that! Agostino, you and the staff were outstanding. You were always available and I was reassured that in your hands things would run smoothly… and they did. The food was great and the staff amazing!!! (We changed the configuration of the head table three times and no-one was bothered, I liked that). Our waitress was there every time our family table needed anything. My friends had great service at the bar. The kitchen was so accommodating with the desserts and did a beautiful job plating them. Thanks for being part of a memorable Bar Mitzvah weekend for us our family and friends.

I am writing to tell you what a wonderful evening our Bat Mitzvah turned out to be! It was totally perfect! Ilana and all of her friends enjoyed themselves so completely. The room looked amazing, and the food was great. Thank you so much for all your expertise, guidance and kindness. We have so enjoyed working with you guys over the past two years, and we will be back! It was truly a milestone in our daughter’s life, and our memories (and videos) will always include our beautiful celebration at Columbus Event Centre! THANK YOU THANK YOU!
With gratitude,

Dear Rose and Agostino,

Vic and I want to thank you ever so much for making Elysse’s Bat Mitzvah such an enjoyable evening. From beginning to end you were both fantastic, and you delivered 100% as promised. Our guests have specifically commented to us on how impressed they were with the venue, presentation and service. We will spread the word and so will our many friends who attended the celebration.
Thanks again,

Just a word of thanks for the excellent wedding party we had.
We just returned from our honeymoon to Alaska, and everyone we talked to kept talking about the wonderful time they had. The food was excellent. Not a single course lacked any luster. Everything was delicious. The hall looked beautiful. Elegant lighting beautifully spaced. The servers were on the ball and made all the guests feel like a king or queen. It was spectacular.
We really had a wonderful time,

Hayley Dorland and Paolo Giuliani
