  • Words cannot express how hard George and Tom worked to help make our wedding happen. We first met George about a year ago (Pre-covid-19) to start our wedding planning. From the start, George’s personality and hospitality amazed us. He made wedding planning such a breeze. Once the shelter at home order began in March, our wedding planning came to a complete stop. Around end of June, we met with George and Tom to brainstorm ideas on how we could safely have our wedding with a small number of guests. We had to completely change up plans from what we had initially planned for but George and Tom helped us accomplish something we never thought could happen. They listened to us and made sure our voices were heard. They made it their priority to make sure that we got to celebrate our special day. Our wedding day was definitely an unforgettable one. With George and Tom by our side, everything went so wonderfully. The food was AMAZING!! When George tells you about the great food Cotillion of... Read more

  • n 9/30/2020 by Jessie P George and Tom made everything wonderful. We met George Jan of 2019. I told him what my vision was and what I wanted. He asked if we went any where else and we didn’t. The cotillion was the first place we looked at and fell in love with it. We booked and planned for our wedding to be June 19,20. As we got closer to our date we had to reschedule our wedding. George was on top of it and got us in another date this year. When sept came around I talked to George several time and everything was set. George saw my vision and helped me make it come true. On sept 25,20 we had our wedding. And it was everything I could imagine. It was my vision and an amazing night. All our guests said how delicious the food was, how gorgeous the cotillion was and how it truly was my vision. Eveything went just right. And if we had to do it again we would definitely pick the cotillion. For having a wedding during COVID I was worried about it but it truly was amazing. George and Tom ha... Read more

  • One of the biggest decisions we had was choosing a hall to hold our wedding reception. When we first walked into The Cotillion we were met by Tom. He made us feel like we were family. The more we talked the more comfortable we felt. He walked us through the building and he was knowledgeable and so cordial. By the end of our first meeting, we knew this is where we needed to have our reception. When we met for the tasting he explained to us his process of how the food is made and nothing was precooked or staged. That made a world of difference to us. We knew our guests were going to be getting a hot fresh meal. Tom left no stone unturned, he walked us through everything. From the time we arrived at the Cotillion to the time we walked out the door at the end of our party. We knew everything that was going to happen, when it was going to happen, and how it was going to happen. He went out of his way to meet with our entertainment to make sure that they had everything they neede... Read more

  • My husband and I went to a few places before we decided on the Cotillion Banquets. What made us decide on them was simple.. beautiful venue and GEORGE! George was our venue coordinator, he KNOWS his stuff. In the beginning, he may seem like he’s promising you everything and it may be unlikely to happen. Well, guess what? EVERYTHING DID HAPPEN! HE MADE EVERYTHING HE PROMISED HAPPEN! My husband and I was soooo happpy! George also is very honest, he is not here to make you spend a fortune and persuade you to pay more than you need AND THAT is how you keep customers. Our wedding was BEAUTIFUL and all our guests were wowed by the decorations and the food was delicious!! My husband and I are so happy that we HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend the Cotillion Banquets for all your events!! You will NOT regret it!

  • George and the entire Cotillion crew really knocked it out of the park for our wedding. My wife and I were so happy with our experience at this venue. We had toured around twelve different venues and the Cotillion was the clear winner. Of all the venues we looked at, this one offered the best quality at the best price. We had multiple meetings with George in the year leading up to the wedding. The planning process was very thorough and there was never any doubt about how the day would run. George worked closely with us to make sure we got exactly what we wanted, including some upgrades to our package which were most appreciated.  As for the day of, we couldn’t have been happier with how everything went. When we arrived for our reception, we were absolutely blown away by how incredible the room looked. George and his crew made it look just like the fairy tale style my wife had in mind. The food was excellent (we offered beef, chicken, salmon, and a vegan option) and we received nume... Read more

  • There’s a lot of stress planning a wedding but the team at the Cotillion, especially working with George, made the day effortless on mine behalf and I didn’t have to worry about a thing when it came to the reception. He made sure that we had a timeline for the night and advise us when we should cut the cake to our first dance and all the important details so our photographer can get those important pictures without the servers in our pictures. The venue was absolutely beautiful from all of the decors to every details on the each tables. The team at the Cotillion was very accommodating and worked with our budget and even went out of their way to help our vendors set up and letting my husband and I practice our first dance in another room while they set up. The servers and bartenders gave one of the best services to all of our guests which is amazing and very important to us. Our guests rave about the amazing food and the venue. George and his team are the of the best in the wedding ... Read more

  • The Cotillion was one of the last venues we looked at, but from the moment we walked in we were sold. The ballroom and even entry way is absolutely gorgeous! From there we met George who is outstanding! He provided us with all the information we could possibly need. George worked with our budget, timeline, and any idea we came up with he took it and made it a reality. The week of we had several last minute changes that George, Tom, and Barbara were able to work with. The day of, the room looked beautiful and the tables were set up perfectly! The food and atmosphere was outstanding. Our guests have not stopped talking about it! I cannot thank George or the entire staff enough for making our special day beautiful and perfect.

  • From the beginning of the wedding planning through our wedding day we were incredibly impressed with the Cotillion. Starting from our first visit meeting with George we could tell the Cotillion was a family atmosphere. When we toured the facility, we saw everyone from the owner to the staff working together to prepare for an event that evening. During the wedding planning, George was enjoyable to work with. His servant heart showed through when with each request his reply was always“no problem.” At the same time using his many years of expertise, George kindly guided us to wise decisions that we would not have thought of otherwise. The day of the wedding was stress-free for us because of all the work George and his staff put into the setup and logistics. During our reception, the staff was incredibly attentive and Tom the owner checked in with us several times throughout the night to make certain everything was going well. We had several people tell us the evening was one o... Read more

  • If we could rate this more than 5 stars, we would!! Cotillion Banquets is absolutely beautiful. My now husband and I got married there August 18th, 2019 and had such an incredible time. George, our wedding planner was the best!!! He is very genuine, hardworking, the best wedding planner out there. He was always willing to pick up the phone and call us when we had questions no matter what time it was. He made our wedding one to always remember. We look back and say to ourselves was this even real!! The beauty of this banquet hall, the staff, the food, EVERYTHING was perfect. Anyone that is looking for a place to celebrate any occasion, this is the place you want to be at. George, Tom and staff, thank you for making our wedding such a memorable time in our lives. You guys have such a beautiful banquet hall and such incredible hearts. We can’t say thank you enough. We left there wanting to do it all over again and left there with new friends. You guys are wonderful people. George and T... Read more

  • Where do we even begin?..from the moment we stepped into Cotillion while venue shopping we knew it was something special. My parents first found this venue through a friend and after going to multiple places there was nothing that compared! Tom & George are the absolute best!!! We had the first two rooms of the banquet named Crown and Tiara we agreed on 400 people when we booked and long story short ended up with way over. George & Tom we’re both SO accommodating and when I say accommodating we mean it to the max. We ended up with 498 people and were so nervous every time we would add a couple people but they were so calm and made everyone fit with enough space to comfortably move around. Our florist was able to easily work with Cotillion Banquets’s as well to make the wedding of our dreams really come true! The night of our wedding there was also another wedding in the back room and we received sooo many compliments on our room from their guests. We had a Romanian wedding, and Rom... Read more

  • If you're looking for a Banquet Hall that will support you, listen to you and make your event planning easier then Cotillion should be your choice! We had our wedding reception on August 10, 2019 and we couldn't be happier that we chose Cotillion. We worked with George and he is great! He is on top of things, will explain everything for you to make this planning experience less stressful. He was there with us on the wedding day along with Tom, the owner, making sure everything was going smoothly. They are a great team and they make you feel like you're a part of Cotillion family. We will be hosting our future events with George! Thank you for everything Cotillion!!

  • WOW such an incredible experience working with the Cotillion since the day I called and spoke with George to inquire information to find a new reception venue quickly as our original one fell through. My husband and I are so happy the original venue fell through because working with the Cotillion was the best experience we had with any of our vendors! George is a great guy. He is very personable, detail oriented, efficient, passionate, professional, responsive, and genuinely cares to help make the wedding of your dreams come true! And it came true!! The food and service was spectacular and the ballroom look to the venue with beautiful chandeliers was stunning! George and Tom treated us with respect and just like their family! I would highly recommend working with the Cotillion as they really gained our trust and we had no doubts our wedding would go without a hitch! 7.27.19

  • I've dreamed about my wedding day ever since I was a little girl. George and the Cotillion took those dreams and made them even better in reality. Wedding planning was very overwhelming to me expect for when I was working with George. He made everything so easy and I always trusted him and his judgment. He treated my fiance and I like family from the minute we walked through the doors. George always kept in contact with us, answered all of our questions throughly, and helped us through tough decisions. I felt like Cinderella on my wedding day and George was my fairy godfather! Everything we had planned was perfect. No detail was forgotten. I was blown away! I immediately bursted into tears when I first saw our ballroom completed. George made it better than my dreams! We can never thank him enough for all of his hard work and dedication to making our wedding absolutely perfect. We love the Cotillion and consider them apart of our family!

  • My daughter, her fiancé, and I, went to three other venues before we chose the Cotillion Banquets. When we met George, we knew this was the place. After meeting with him on multiple occasions, and going through details, I can attest, that he is one of the most hardworking, detail orientated, and passionate people I have ever met. He truly loves his job and wants to make sure your wedding day is exactly what you want it to be. He worked within our budget and we were able to get what we asked for. George answered all calls and emails very quickly and also sent me pictures of decor options too. On the day of the wedding, my daughter cried tears of happiness when she walked into the ballroom. The room was absolutely stunning! We received so many compliments on the dinner entrees.The wait staff and bartenders were very attentive and friendly. George, thanks to you, and your staff, for making my daughter 's wedding day all she dreamed of and more. You were a joy to work with. I can't say en... Read more

  • It took me a couple days to write this review because I am still at a loss for words. My wedding day was everything I had ever dreamed of.. and more. Cotillion Banquets was the best decision I made during wedding planning. We had visited about 8 venues before choosing Cotillion Banquets. The second we met George, we knew this was the place. He is one of the most hardworking, caring, and passionate people I have ever met. When you work with George, you can tell he isn't doing this for the money. He truly loves what he does and wants to make sure your wedding day is perfect. And that is exactly what he did for us. He exceeded all my expectations. He answered all calls and emails very quickly and with every request I had, his response was always "no problem." I cried when I walked into the reception because I couldn't believe how beautiful our room looked. George stayed there late and kept checking in during the night to make sure everything was going well. The food is amazing. I receive... Read more
