  • I haven't booked yet but i like what this place had to offer. It was looking at the water and could fit lot of people. They gave great and realistic feedback to help keep my cost down. I liked that the regular chair option wasn't chair covers.

  • I have had my Wedding Reception, My mothers Celebration of Life, and My High School Reunion at this Venue! As you can tell I keep returning because of many factors. The Location is top notch, the Ease in Coordinating and the impeccable service are why. Vicki Schones is professional and wonderful to work with and is a great leader when you require a much needed opinion! Love Harborside Grand Ballroom!

  • Our wedding was and still is the BEST DAY EVER! And Harborside venue and staff and very much responsible for that. From the very first meeting with Vicki to the day of the event everything was so seamless and stress free-i can truly say that i wouldn’t change a thing. I have been going to the grand ballroom at the pavilion for most of my life and the way they transform the space was so beautiful, the food was stellar and the vendors that were recommended were amazing. A million times thank you for making our day so special!

  • Karen and Vicki, along with the rest of the staff were amazing. The location is absolutely gorgeous with an incredible, panoramic view of the harbor. They were very accommodating with requests for advice, vendor reccomendations, and changes or alterations to the service packages. We were provided with a really terrific food tasting, and were even provided with additional items above what we requested. Overall, my wife and I couldn't have picked a better location for our reception and have received nothing but rave reviews from our guests. If you do decide to have your reception here, I highly recommend getting the Balboa Bar station. It provides a little extra local flavor and was a gigantic hit.

  • Perfect backdrop for my dream wedding. The staff is friendly and attentive. The banquet coordinators, Vicki and Karen, were extremely helpful with everything from planning the menu to calling my vendors and getting everything set. The views are breath taking especially in the evening. It was a perfect night. Thank you Harborside!!!!

  • I have nothing but good things to say about having my Wedding at Harborside Grand Ballroom! Karen our Banquet Manager was amazing to work with! She knows her stuff and had great suggestions during my planning process. Everything was so easy from deciding on chairs to fabrics to the food tasting! She also had great suggestions for outside vendors for floral arrangements and cake bakeries. Most importantly Karen was very responsive I never had to wait or call again to get a question answered. She was very proactive during the entire process! Not only Karen , but the whole staff at Harborside goes above and beyond to make you feel special and comfortable. I think its hard not to fall in love with this venue! From the amazing views and the charm of the historic building! Everything was perfect on my wedding day! Karen was such a doll, there to make sure everything was in order. The food was amazing, tasted great, came out hot, and looked beautiful! Chairs and linens we rented looked g... Read more

  • The moment we walked into the ballroom we just knew this place was for us. From the great bay/ocean view to the happy staff we just felt right about hosting our wedding at Harborside. We had great communication with Vicki the entire time and could not have asked for a better place to share our love. We had around 150 guests and had little to no issues (only thing would be parking but that's what happens when you hold an event on the peninsula during warm weather). But the little touches that went to make our day special was worth it all. We are so thankful for the team bringing beautiful ambiance, AMAZING food (which we had the pleasure of tasting before and during) and making guests feel comfortable. My mom was obsessed with the fact that Balboa Bars were part of the package and sure enough, they were a hit. The little outside patio off the reception area was a great bonus! It allowed guests to take a quick break, if needed, without leaving the reception. I was not sure how to plan a ... Read more

    Thank you Taryn. What a pleasure to work with you on your special day. My favorite part of the wedding was your get away car. What a great vintage ride! Thank you for sharing your lovely photos! Sincerely, Vicki Schones
