  • I had my wedding at cafe la cave a month ago and I am so happy I did. Randy and his crew did an amazing job! Randy wants only the best for his clients. He does things a little different than what you will see at other weddings that you may question at first but let me tell you.. the man KNOWS what he is talking about. Not only did he have my best interest at heart, he has so much passion for his job. He loves what he does and it shows. He made me feel so at ease the entire process and I had so much fun while work with him. He’s one of those people that make ya feel at home. The day of can be stressful but my husband and I had an absolute blast. Randy and his crew took care of everything. I did not worry about one thing and I knew going in I wouldn’t have to because they’re SO on top of everything. We actually got to eat our dinner... which from what I hear barely ever happens. So that’s pretty amazing. They take care of everything from The second you walk in to the second you l... Read more

  • Great place to host a reception for a large wedding. We invited over 350 people and they would have been able to accommodate 325. We ended up with 210, but we were still over the minimum. Food and service were outstanding. Event staff is great to work with, and Randy is awesome at his job.

  • We had my daughter's bridal shower at Cafe la Cave back in April. It took me awhile to write this review, since we have been so busy with the wedding preparations, but I didn't want to miss sharing my experience. I could not have asked for a more wonderful person to work with, than Kimberly. She answered all my questions on a timely manner and made sure my request for dropping our decorations ahead of the day, was accommodated. On the day of the event, my daughter was so impressed on how beautiful the room looked. The service our guests received was incredible and the food was delicious! Thank you Kimberly, and your team at Cafe la Cave, for making the day so special for us. I highly recommended this venue!!

  • On December 15, 2018 I married by best friend at Cafe La Cave. We worked with Randy. He was incredible and made our wedding perfect! We married in the foyer under the staircase. We wanted a unique wedding and added special touches. We had Mexican guitarists on the stairs landing above us. They played for our guests and also played us in and out after the ceremony. Randy created a step by step itinerary that was followed by all making the wedding and reception flawless start to finish. He made sure we practiced and felt fully comfortable. My family and friends loved it! They cannot stop talking about the wedding on how it was beautiful, elegant and with fantastic food. We had passed appetizers and champagne for an hour before dinner. They were out of this world scrumptious. The wait staff made everyone feel special and elegant the whole night through. The food was phenomenal! My husband and I are foodies and we wanted our guests to enjoy and love their dinner so we p... Read more

  • Cafe La Cave more than exceeded our expectations for our wedding- I wish I could give more than 5 stars. To be honest, I was hesitant at first because I had always dreamed of a downtown wedding (which sadly my budget couldn’t afford) but this venue and the team were far better than anything I had ever dreamed. Randy, Carrie, and Kim are the most amazing team and they really made me feel like the most special bride in the world throughout the whole process. They really understood what I wanted and because they are a family owned venue, they were extremely accommodating and flexible in any requests- they really make an effort to make every wedding different and unique. The rehearsal was actually fun for everyone and the day of I was not worried at all about any logistics. I knew the team had it covered and could handle any last minute issues without stressing me out. The highlight of the night was Randy, 100%. He was the emcee and coordinator for the night and made the entire night ... Read more

  • Cafe La Cave is one of the best kept secrets in the wedding industry! Their venue is absolutely incredible in every way. Randy and Carrie were wonderful throughout the wedding planning process, meeting with us several times and being in constant communication via email. They helped our vision come to life. We were looking for a venue that was "all-inclusive" and they definitely took care of all the behind the scenes work for us. They helped us perfect the small details that helped personalize our wedding, and did so up until the last minute! Cafe La Cave is an amazing venue with a VERY reasonable price tag. We looked at several venues and this by far was the best overall value. Even better, the quality of the food and service was not compromised. We received SO many compliments about how delicious the food was, and the service was very prompt and professional. Randy emceed for us during the reception and was fantastic. He has a somewhat unique sequence of events but it flows well and ... Read more

  • RE: WEDDING, SATURDAY AUGUST, 20, 2016 WHEN WE BEGAN THIS PROCESS OF LOOKING FOR A VENUE FOR MY DAUGHTER’S WEDDING, WE WERE ABSOLUTELY GREEN, THOUGH WE HAD RESEARCHED PLENTY OF PLACES AND HAD VISITED NO LESS THAN 30 VENUES AND HEARD THEIR SALES PITCHES, FROM DOWNTOWN CHICAGO TO THE FAR SUBURBS, NORTH, SOUTH AND WEST, AND FINALLY DECIDED ON CAFÉ LA CAVE. ALL NAME BRAND LIQUOR IS INCLUDED, NO PACKAGES, GRATUITY INCLUDED, EXCEPTIONAL FOOD, GREAT REPUTATION AND AN INCREDIBLY ATTENTIVE SERVING STAFF WERE ATTRACTIVE ELEMENTS, BUT WHAT REALLY SOLD US WAS RANDY SUTTER. RANDY IS ONE OF THE OWNERS AND THE EVENT/WEDDING COORDINATOR. HE IS INVOLVED IN EACH ASPECT OF MAPPING OUT YOUR DREAM, CAPTURING YOUR VISION, AND RECOMMENDING ONLY THE BEST AND MOST CREATIVE VENDORS AT REASONABLE PRICES. MOST IMPORTANTLY, HE IS THERE ON THE DAY ORCHESTRATING THE EVENT, WORKING THE MICROPHONE, RUNNING IT AS THOUGH IT WAS A THEATRICAL PRODUCTION. THERE WAS A TIME TABLE FOR EACH ACTIVITY. EVERYTHING WAS FLA... Read more

  • My husband Bobby and I had our wedding reception at Cafe La Cave on 6/24/16. It truly was the best night of our lives. Randy is AMAZING to work with. He is so easygoing, kind and a blast to be around. He makes the wedding planning process fun! He lets you know his opinion, but is not pushy at all. His ideas are different, not the typical flow of a wedding reception, but honestly you will thank him when it's all said and done. He knows how to put on a good show for sure! My advice to future brides is listen to Randy and you will be golden. He will not steer you in the wrong direction. The food is also great...cannot beat the food..not typical banquet food. Everything about Cafe La Cave is amazing...the food, the decor, the lighting and most importantly....Randy!! Thank you Randy, Carrie and the rest of the staff at Cafe La Cave for making mine and my husband's wedding night the best day ever!!!

  • We are extremely happy we chose Café La Cave as our wedding reception venue. I cannot even count how many compliments we received on the food, the service, the venue décor and the flow of the evening. People kept telling us it was the best wedding they had ever been too. Randy was great to work with, he was very responsive to all of my emails and phone calls and had a lot of great suggestions. Definitely trust him with the layout of the evening. It's not conventional but it really works and I am very happy we didn't change anything. I can't recommend Café La Cave enough for your next event. It was wonderful!

We ar extremely grateful for all that you did to make my wife have a smile from ear to ear. In our books your a 5 star! We thank you for everything.

  • I don't think I could have picked a better place to have my wedding reception. From day one of walking in to check this place out to signing a contract and all the meetings that followed they made planning a wedding as easy as I think it could be. We initially picked this hall because we didn't have 300 people to fill other places that could have potentially had another wedding the same night - that was a big NO for me. Seeing the layout of this place and knowing the ballroom would be all mine made this decision a no brainier. Cocktail hour was outside on the patio and in the entry foyer area of the ballroom, no one was allowed into the ballroom until it was time to be seated. This made for such a more dramatic entrance for our guests to see the room all put together and ready for the evening. No one could sneak in and peek early. Loved that they do this! Our dance floor was covered in a white vinyl with our initials in a silver metallic, this was just the perfect touch to t... Read more
