  • We allocated 2 days for venue shopping in April 2016 and visited over 10 center city spots. We did not anticipate CTR as a choice and in fact my husband and I did not initially accompany our daughter and her fiance to their appointment, choosing instead to stay with the car. Soon we received a call to join them. They liked the size yet warmth of the room and the elegance was what they were looking for, but the menu sold them as did the connection they immediately felt with Michelle. We were not disappointed! The food not only plentiful but excellently prepared. At the cocktail hour guests were raving. I am still thinking about how delicious the lobster tails and the butler-ed ahi tuna was! The brisket at the carving station and the dinner filet were cooked perfectly and the service equaled any fine restaurant where we have dined. My napkin was folded every time I left the table. We were served drinks and well attended to. The maitre d" Miguel was absolutely fantastic. He ev... Read more

  • Our daughter was married 7/15/17 and the reception was held in the Crystal Tea Room. We allocated 2 days for venue shopping in April 2016 and visited over 10 center city spots. We did not anticipate CTR as a choice and in fact my husband and I did not initially accompany our daughter and her fiance, choosing instead to stay with the car. Soon we received a call to join them. They liked the size yet warmth of the room and the elegance was exactly what they were looking for, but the menu sold them as did the connection they immediately felt with Michelle. I had my doubts about food quality given the abundance and thought the later food tasting was okay. However, I had no reason for concern. When the day came the cocktail hour was absolutely exceptional. The food not only plentiful but excellently prepared. Guests were raving and I only wished I had more of an appetite and opportunity to eat given the responsibilities of mother of the bride. I am still thinking about how deliciou... Read more

  • The Crystal Tea Room is the quintessential classic Philadelphia wedding, and Finley Catering exceeds expectations in every way possible. After looking at all the downtown Philly venues, I know nothing compared to CTR and Finley. I had been to weddings there before and had so much peace of mind and confidence that my own reception would be perfect. Guests raved about the food as the best they have ever had at a wedding. The ambiance is incredible and all of our vendors were pleasantly surprised to hear we were having a CTR wedding because they love working with Finley. Michelle made the entire planning process a breeze and her and Miguel were awesome the night of the reception -- thank you Finley for making it the best evening of our life!

  • What a venue!!! Simply amazing!!! We got married on 4-29-17 at the Crystal Team Room and words can not even explain our satisfaction with not only the venue, but all of the staff who works there as well.We worked with Michele from day one and she made wedding planning a breeze. When we first met for our initial consult, we were nervous and wasn't sure even what to look for, ask about, etc. Meeting Michele was the best decision of our lives that day! She put our minds at ease, broke down things in detail and listened to our vision and what we were looking to accomplish with our wedding theme! A baseball eloquent theme is not something to easily pull off and Michele was very helpful in helping us achieve that goal. Miguel was a blessing in disguise and we couldn't be more thankful for him. He has such an infectious personality that it's not hard at all to feel like you have known him for over 20 years! He is superb at what he does and keeps your whole night organized and running smoothly... Read more

  • If you want to have a 100% stress-free wedding, from the very beginning of planning until you crash at your hotel room the night of the wedding, then go with Finley Catering. My wedding was at the Crystal Tea Room in April and people will not shut up about it! I worked with Michelle throughout the planning process and she made EVERY SINGLE THING so easy. Miguel was our Maitre D and he truly is a professional. All night all I heard from him was "no problem" and he would get whatever you needed DONE. Marco was our head waiter and he was so incredibly attentive. My in-laws were in love with the special treatment they were getting being the parents of the groom that night! I won't go on and on, although I could. All I will say is that the Finley group knows what they are doing. It is worth every penny!

  • Finley Catering is the best of the best. Michelle and her team take good care of you the moment you go on your first venue tour and throughout the entire planning process. My wedding was absolutely perfect because of the great staff they have here and the attention to detail that they put into every wedding (food, decor, service= all perfect). Michelle was my main point of contact, and I had Miguel and Carlos as my day of coordinators to help the day run smoothly. When I arrived at the venue, the party was going and the guests were amazed with the cocktail hour and all of the delicious food. Miguel was right there to make sure we were staying on track with time and knew when it was time to get me to the bridal suite to eat and get my bustle up before the reception started. Michelle jumped right in and took care of my bustle for me- seriously AMAZING!!! You cannot get better people than that! When I had a chance to step back and look at the venue with the tables set, the l... Read more

  • Our experience with Finley and the CTR team was amazing. We worked closely with Michelle who made sure the day was perfect. She was flexible and fun during the planning process. On the night of, Miguel, Carlos and the waitstaff made sure my husband and I never had an empty drink and also took great care of our parents and bridal party. Our guests had nothing but great things to say about the food, service, drinks and venue. This venue knows how to throw a wedding! I wish I could redo the night!!!!! Thanks to Finley and CTR!

  • Elegant, Beautiful, Delicious, Fancy, Perfect! Best day of our lives! And that is mostly because of The Crystal Tea Room's beauty, their staff's accommodations/attention to detail, and Finley's FOOD of course! We planned our wedding in 7 months. You have to do VERY little when you book with Finley. I realized that early on. The room itself is already gorgeous, they include a Termini Bros cake, any beers/drinks you want, and food that will have your guests talking forever about!!! We decided not to get married in a church and I was nervous about being able to match the beauty of a church for my ceremony; But the room makes for a gorgeous ceremony spot! The atrium, for cocktail hour gives you the outdoor feel with natural lighting from the glass ceiling and a fountain. We couldn't get over the bridal suite there...just absolutely beautiful and a great space to spend time with your bridal party before everything begins! Michelle Finley is amazing and was easy to communicate with... Read more

  • We had our wedding reception at the Crystal Tea Room on July 15, 2016. To say that the venue and service was impeccable doesn’t even do it justice! We had the most magical night of our lives thanks to the team at the Crystal Tea Room, and are even RECEIVING many thank you cards from guests thanking us for inviting them! People are still raving about how gorgeous the venue was, and how much they enjoyed the delicious food. Michelle Finley was on top of every single question and request we had throughout the entire planning process. For as much as she deals with on a daily basis, I always felt like I was top priority to her. Miguel and his staff were hands down the warmest, most accommodating group I have ever experienced at a wedding! He was right there all night making sure my husband and I were comfortable and had everything we needed. I had a request at one point and I asked the nearest busser to help me out. He dropped what he was doing and literally ran to Miguel to let him kn... Read more

  • Absolute best day of our lives! It is hard to know where to begin while writing this review because everything was beyond fantastic! The service, the attention to detail, the food, the beautiful venue, the coordination with my wedding planner and all the other vendors could not have been more perfect. We could not have been more pleased with The Crystal Tea Room and Finley Catering! I would like to especially thank Miguel, Nicole, and Carlos. Nicole made sure that everything was ready and running smoothly up to the day of. She was always available to answer questions that we had and responded very quickly. She also was so accommodating to all requests that we had. Miguel (maitre d) went above and beyond to make sure that myself and my husband as well as our bridal party and parents felt like we were royalty. Every request was handled so well. Carlos (captain for bride and groom) was so amazing and made sure that we ate and drank the entire evening. He was very attentive throughout the ... Read more

  • It is almost unfair that I can only rate up to a 5.0, In every one of the criteria listed, Finley Catering exceeded our expectations for our daughter's wedding. I cannot possibly more highly recommend Michelle Finley and her team. Every one of our 175 guests raved about the reception, venue, the food and the Finley staff. The only "hitch" was that of our daughter Emily marrying our new son in law Joe!

  • Fantastic people to work with from start to finish!!! We celebrated every meeting with them and they made it totally stress-free. They are total professionals and had every detail covered for us. When they tell you to just enjoy yourself and leave everything to them they mean it. Our guests had a wonderful time and the service was great. Miguel ran the night for us and we now consider him like family. He is the absolute best!!! Under Trish's careful planning, she was able to transform the room into a magical world that we will never, ever forget. I still keep looking at the pictures from that night and feel myself pulled back to that moment and all the fun we had celebrating our wedding. The Finley staff definitely are at the top and we will go back for other events in our family.

  • My husband and I recently had our reception at the Crystal Tea Room in November… Trish was incredible to work with. Her expertise, guidance and communication during the entire process were amazing. Miguel and his team executed everything flawlessly on the day. My guests wanted for nothing!!! The food was incredible and the service was impeccable. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. I come from a hospitality background so I always notice service standards and I could not have asked for more. I am still hearing rave reviews on everything and my guests had a blast ~ Finely Catering does it right!!!!!!!

  • I cannot say enough about how great it was to work with Finley Catering, especially Emily, for our wedding! We threw a big Indian fusion wedding with many events at the Crystal Tea Room and they made it happen every step of the way. What amazed me the most was how quick Emily was to respond to our questions via email or phone. I'm sure she has a million couples that she talks to on a daily basis, but she always responded to me within 24 hours! Miguel was also awesome on the day of the wedding. You can from your first meeting that he's an expert in the wedding business and he's a lot of fun too! The Crystal Tea Room was the most gorgeous, classic, and historic venue in which to have our most special day! All of our wedding guests raved about the food also...and I think they really meant it! Finley Catering made our wedding everything we hoped it would be and MORE!

  • We held our reception at Crystal Tea Room & cannot say enough good things about our experience. First off, the package is PHENOMENAL - all of the food is included (including the cake!) and the food is SPECTACULAR. The venue itself is stunning & did not require much decoration. The thing that really sets CTR apart, though, is the team working there. Michelle Finley was great to work with - she was always available when we needed to speak with her & she made the catering end of our reception happen with almost zero effort from us. On the day of the wedding, the CTR staff was AMAZING - we'd heard so much about Miguel in particular and approximately none of what we heard was untrue. Miguel made everything run so smoothly & took personal care of us and our parents. He loves his job & it shows! Carlos also took great care of us - if we needed anything, or was thinking about needing anything, he already had it waiting and he made sure we were never without a drink all night. Our weddi...
