The Eglinton Grand

Most Recent Review
"We just held our daughter's bat mitzvah service and party at The Eglinton Grand and we were thrilled with how magical the whole event turned out to be!! The ambience and décor were second to none – the place has been restored to its former Art Deco movie-house glory. We had our daughter's name up on the marquee, and our guests were greeted on a red carpet with brass stanchions and red velvet ropes. Cocktails were served upstairs in a beautiful mezzanine area, from which guests were heard to gasp when the curtains were opened to reveal the stunning décor of the dining room and dance floor below. The special events managers at The Eglinton Grand, Chantal and Teresa, were fantastic – friendly, professional, knowledgeable and accommodating with our every question (of which there were many throughout the planning process!). They made everything so easy for us! The event-night staff was also very helpful and professional. I was so impressed by how special everyone there made us feel about our event, despite the fact that we were surely just one more event in a week/month/year full of events for them. Chantal and Teresa worked very hard with us to customize our fantastic dinner spread. They were willing to explore different options and pricing, and in the end, we received rave reviews from our guests about the food and drinks. They also provided terrific recommendations for entertainment, photo/video and décor when asked, and we were so happy with how well they all worked together. I cannot argue with some of the drawbacks I've read about this venue, but we didn't find them to be deal-breakers. Parking is scarce, it's true. But that's mid-town Toronto for you… We heard no complaints from our guests, who simply parked in the 'Green P' a block away or took an Uber to the event (and were pleased not to have to travel too far). Accessibility has been much improved with the recently installed elevator, which was used by our more elderly guests. It only accommodates a few people at a time though, so be sure most of your guests can use the stairs. The separate ceremony space (Gallery Room) does have a separate entrance, true, which means that guests had to don their coats again to exit and re-enter the main entrance for the party. We were given the choice of holding the ceremony in the main ballroom instead, but opted to go with the Gallery Room anyway, because we much preferred its more intimate atmosphere. The only detail that we really wish had been different was that all of the uneaten food from our dinner ended up being discarded; they would not give us the leftovers or even donate them to a shelter. We were told that this was for everyone's protection, and I've heard that this is not uncommon in the catering industry. But it still didn't sit well with us to have that much food go to waste. Overall, our experience was exceptional, and I would enthusiastically recommend The Eglinton Grand to anyone wanting top-level service and quality for their event in a breathtakingly beautiful venue.

"We hosted our Christmas wedding at Archeo and couldn't be happier with our experience. The restaurant itself is incredibly beautiful and needs so little decorations, as it is gorgeous on its own. The planning process was a breeze, with our coordinator Victoria helping us at every step of the way. She was sure to remind us well before upcoming deadlines and provided us with an events package that made planning so much easier. The food was AMAZING, all night long our guests told us how happy they were with the food. And then there is the staff...they were thoughtful and attentive and went over and above to make sure myself and my husband and of course all our guests were happy. We are still on cloud nine weeks later and that has so much to do with Archeo and Distillery Events." (more)

The Arlington Estate

Most Recent Review
"The Arlington Estate was the first venue I looked into. Of course I researched other venues and set up tours, but found it to be wasted time as nothing compared to Ramys vision. Like some of the reviews mention below, he has thought of everything to make life easier, the day run smoothly and guests to be "wowed" by the detail put into the venue. My fiancé and I loved how Ramy was able to customize the menu and allowed us to incorporate our personal touches. Ramy was easy to work with, accommodating and knowledgable. We have no doubt the space will be beautiful and are excited to celebrate our wedding at The Arlington." (more)

"You and your team were absolutely wonderful; everyone was professional, diligent, organized, and the execution was incredible. I frequented many of the top New York restaurants when I lived there, and I can say that the execution of the AGO team is right up there. Really! Please also thank chef Annick, Darren and the rest of your staff for us. The food turned out fantastic. The guests all loved the food, and wouldn't stop raving about it. Everyone was so professional and wonderful. We can't thank you enough! " (more)
