“Thank you for everything. We fell in love with World Café Live at the Queen from the moment we walked in there, and we knew Josh would want to have his party there when he saw it. Everything was fantastic, and you made it easy and non-stressful from the moment we started barraging you with emails before we even signed the contract. Everyone raved about the food - many saying it was the best food they'd ever had at an event like this. The rooms looked amazing, with the lights, and the gobos, and the stage, and the whole vibe. Everyone who worked yesterday was friendly and helpful. It made everyone there feel comfortable. It was exactly the right venue for Josh, and you and your crew made the day just perfect.”

"Thank you and your team sooooo much. Everything was awesome, we had the best time. You guys were all great.
Everyone told me awesome things afterwards. Someone said they needed a vegan meal (her date ordered salmon for her on the RSVP) but they said the server came back with an awesome vegan meal really quick. I got compliments on the bar staff and the security guard who was helping out, I didn't have to worry about one thing the whole night.
Thanks again, and we will be back soon!"
"We wanted to thank you and the staff at Live at the Queen for making our daughter's wedding into a wonderful celebration. Our guests expressed how smoothly everything went, how good the food was, how exceptional the bar was and how unique the venue was. We don't think that anyplace else could have better captured the moment...
The place really looked great and shined! The band really liked playing at the Queen and working with the AV people and the florist was equally complimentary about your staff. It was a beautiful evening!
Once again thanks for everything!"
"The day was practically perfect and all of the staff were amazingly helpful… special thanks to a few people that exceeded our expectations, and made us feel so special on our big day. Marghi saw to our every need, and was so lovely to work with. We didn't worry about a thing because she was always there. Troy looked out for us in ways we never expected. At the end of the night he went through the venue, making sure we hadn't left anyone or anything behind. Thank you for helping us to plan and to make the day so memorable! …all the staff, made our wedding so unforgettable."
