  • We feel blessed to have met the exceptionally nice couple who own/coordinate everything at the Phenix Banquet Ctr. They truly care about your wedding event, which makes us feel like a royal couple. They go 10x past the point in making us feel confident our special day is going to be MEMORABLE and we will never forget the two of them and all they have done thus far.

  • Our Experience at the Phenix Banquet Center was absolutely amazing. My husband and I really enjoyed ourselves. The staff was very professional. We had the opportunity of hosting our reception here. The Phenix owners and their team are hands down the best in the city, This was definitely a night I'll never forget !!

  • I had a birthday event at this venue. The food was absulotely fantastic. The owner was very personable and stopped around very often to make sure we were all taken care of. I found her to be honest, diligent, and easy to deal with. The venue was great for the event and I would highly recommend it to anybody.

  • We had a phenomenal wedding experience at Phenix Banquet Center! The venue is beautiful, the food was delicious and the staff is so friendly and accommodating. Every step of the way, we were treated as family. The package pricing is incredible, especially considering dinner and a DJ are included in the standard packages, which are less expensive than the price of many venue rentals alone! The owner, Yemi, is an absolute delight to work with, and her passion for helping brides bring their wedding vision to life is clear. I had a fairly small budget. Yemi asked me to describe exactly what I was going for, and helped me select a package suited my needs without trying to sell me on extras just for the sake of it, which was refreshing. We took advantage of a spring wedding offer, that allowed us to choose two free upgrades, so we opted to add the ceremony package and upgrade to chivari chairs for free! She also allowed me to replace the standard menu options (which all sounded amazing!) av... Read more

  • I had my wedding with Phoenix in October 2018, and it was okay at best. The best thing about this venue IS the venue. The inside is amazing. The DJ was awesome...but it went downhill from there. The food was horrible and my guests complained. The seasoning was bland, the chicken was dry, and she gave me the buffet option when I specifically asked for plated. When asked, she said I never told her to have the food served but to do a buffet style. This was a deliberate lie. She also charges $150 for king lion chairs and promised they were the tall throne chairs I wanted but when we actually set in them, they were not the tall ones...and yet costed the same. Yemi is all about money and will try to keep you from using outside vendors so she can keep all of your money for horrible service. I do not recommend this venue to anyone.

    We always appreciate receiving feedback from our couples. Thanks for the compliment on the venue; we agree it is simply stunning. Our DJ does a great job; we have passed on the compliments to him. He did a fabulous job rolling with last second program changes; he ended up with two different sets of programs provided by you and your groom. I will respond to the rest of your concerns as Yemi. As the business owner; l am the one that provides guidance and assistance through the entire process. I strive to adhere completely to the plans that our couples make for their wedding. There obviously was a drop in communication about the type of dining you want for your wedding. Our records clearly show a buffet meal was selected and this was communicated with other details for your wedding that l emailed to you. In case l missed an email where you communicated your listed dinning choice as wrong for the buffet style; please forward it to me. Technology sometimes does not always work the way it is intended. You will recall that you made a variety of last minute changes and additions; and all of them were graciously accommodated. Each time a change was made; l updated your wedding details and emailed it to you. Regarding the food; l am sorry that you did not find the chicken or the general seasoning of the food to your liking. This report is vastly different from the report verbally given to me on your wedding day. The throne chairs were a last minute addition. I emailed a picture of the chairs to you before you added them for your wedding. No couple at Phenix is ever under duress to add services that is not desired by them. I am notorious for ensuring that no hard sell of services occur during my meetings with our couples. It is my normal practice during my planning interactions to encourage couples to truly be the captain of the planning process. This includes the freedom to use outside vendors of their choosing. Overall; the dissatisfaction displayed in your review is not consistent with the verbal feedback and thanks that l received on the day of your wedding from you and Richard. I would have been grateful for an opportunity to address and resolve any issues with you both privately. I am still available for a private discussion. All the best wishes on your marriage. Yemi

  • During our event at Phenix, Ms Yemi provided us with a discount for being a non profit of $100. and allowed us to set up an hour early 7:00 pm instead of setting up at 8:00 pm with the event beginning at 9:00 pm. The event was scheduled to be over at 2:00 am around 1:30 am Yemi entered the facility and began telling people that the event was supposed to be over at 2 and that she was going to lock the doors. She recorded us sweeping, mopping, placing the chairs and tables as we found them. There was no food left on the floors or anywhere else in that facility. Yemi alone disrespected our event, she was extremely unprofessional, her behavior was intolerable, and if this is the way in which she conducts business I am truly appalled. Yemi then submitted an invoice indicating that we owed her an additional $100.+ and that she would be keeping our damage deposit. Even though she recorded us cleaning the facility and replacing the tables and chairs. I am personally offended that we p... Read more
