Astoria was Amazing!!! I don't know how else to describe them! I only had two banquets in mind when planning my wedding. I went to them first and stuck with them. Lora and Max are amazing and they are so accommodating! I am an anxious person and a bit of a control freak, so I called them and they always reassured me that everything would be okay. I not only had my reception there, but I had my bridal shower there as well! I intend to have a baby shower there when the time comes! The food was delicious and so was the cake (at both of my events) People are still talking about how great everything tasted and how beautiful the banquet was. I truly could not have asked for a better shower and reception. A colleague of mine got engaged and I referred her to Astoria and SHE BOOKED IT! They are worth every penny. I can't wait to have another event there in the future.

Astoria Banquets and Max made our wedding absolutely perfect and unforgettable! We were very pleased with how flexible and accommodating Max was and how he went above and beyond to make sure that every little detail was perfect on our big day. We had an Armenian/American wedding and Max was able to adjust the menu to include a variety of Russian/Armenian and American dishes that everybody would enjoy! The decor and the lighting was absolutely breathtaking and the food was delicious. All of our guests were blown away by everything the moment they arrived and even weeks after the wedding, we are still receiving compliments about the venue. I HIGHLY recommend this venue and want to thank Max and his staff for making our day truly memorable!!!!

Kristina, thank you so much for this lovely review. I am so happy for you and Matt. It was a pleasure to help put all the details together. We were a little obsessed with the uplighting that day too:) Max

I found Astoria Banquets through this site and couldn't be happier with our choice. From the first meeting with Lora, we knew we had found the right location for our wedding ceremony and reception. Weddings can be stressful, and Astoria's packages were all inclusive and gave us many choices to make it our day. They had something for everyone's budget. Also, the written guides and information they gave us for planning, made for literally a perfect day. If Lora wasn't available to answer our ongoing questions and calls, or those from our vendors such as the DJ, Max was right there to help. Lora was so patient and so helpful every step of the way..The day of our wedding our banquet captain was always right there..The room? When I stepped through the door to walk down the isle, it took my breath away, it was so beautiful..Same for the reception..My guests are still raving about everything..the beauty of the rooms, the delicious food, the wedding cake from their bakery, and the service from the staff. You will never be sorry you chose Astoria Banquets. I will always be grateful for their help with the perfect day.

We had our wedding reception at Astoria in June of 2017. A night that culminated after we first met Lora and Max (the Proprietors) 10 months earlier. They were very professional, caring and understanding from the very first moment we walked into Astoria. Lora helped us with every detail of our reception and was also tremendously helpful with suggestions and recommendations. One of the great things about booking our event at Astoria (among many others) was the fact that our wedding cake was included within the package. We had the opportunity to taste various cakes and custom design our own, from the Baking Institute, which turned out perfectly. We also, had the opportunity to choose our menu items, and taste the dinner and side dishes months before the event. The food was delicious for our tasting as it was for our wedding night. The room was decorated beautifully and in perfect conjunction with our colors for the evening. Astoria has a myriad of ways to decorate the room with colors, Chandeliers, winding staircases, garden views, lighting and accessories that went beyond what we could have imagined. Since our wedding was a military affair, color schemes and patterns are hard to find. Astoria was able to accommodate us perfectly. All of our guests enjoyed the food, the atmosphere, the beautiful surroundings and d├ęcor for photos and above all the professional and caring service that Astoria gave us. The wait staff and bartenders were very helpful and accommodating and went above and beyond what one would expect. They created for us an unforgettable night. We cannot adequately encapsulate the great qualities of Astoria and its people in such a short review; needless to say, we give it 5 out of 5 stars in every aspect and highly recommend it. Astoria is the Hidden Gem in the North Cook/Lake County area.

Nikki, thank you for taking the time to write such a thoughtful review. Everything about your wedding day was so elegant and I loved planning it with you and George! Those garden photos are among my favorite!

I first saw Astoria on Face book and immediately fell in love with their reasonable prices and the beautiful images from past weddings. We were very pleased with how flexible and accommodating everyone on the Astoria team was to all of our individual needs and details to make our Wedding Day the magical and special event that it was. All of our guests were so impressed and taken back by the beautiful and elegant style, decor, and ambiance that they created for our ceremony. The white draping package created an eniviornent that was warm, filled with love, and aligned it to our wedding vision/dream.Their servers and hostesesses were very professional and accommondating to the needs of our guest. Two of our guests indicated a food allergy on the day of the event and the chefs were able to accommodate a whole new entree for them on the spot. They had ample parking space for all of our guests, along with a great team of servers that accommodated to food/coat needs. We found that Astoria was a great venue to accommodate for our quick planning and fixed budget. Pricing was reasonable Thank you to Max and Lora for all of your help and to your patience with our millions of inquiries & emails.

We got married on a Friday night in Feb 2017 and very much enjoyed the entire experience. Max was great to work with, he was accommodating, he was available via phone nearly every time I called throughout the year and even if he wasn't, he got back to me within minutes. He never had to say no to any of our requests, he always found a way to make stuff work. Thanks Max!! Greg and Tia.

The entire night and still weeks after, we are getting compliments from family and friends about the venue at Astoria, people keep asking how much we spent and think it's much more than we actually did. The VALUE is definitely in this venue! Lora was so amazing throughout the entire process with all my questions and changes! The venue is gorgeous, the food amazing, everything went even better than planned. We began our night upstairs in the bride and groom suites, plenty of room to leave our personal belongings and get dressed in. We had our ceremony in the north end of the ballroom with the rest partitioned off, then a coctail hour with open bar and 3 passed hor dourves across the lobby in their lounge, a great space, with a patio just off of it that is lit up with strand lights and cast iron furniture. The bridal party took photos during this time in their beautifully decorated lobby and staircase that over looks lobby. We used the entire ballroom for our reception and took full advantage of Astoria's uplighting and backdrops that perfectly complimented their brilliant chandeliers. Astoria's wait staff were exemplary! It was so nice to be able to not have to worry about centerpieces, table linens, china, flatware, catering, lighting, backdrops, decor, seating, dance floors, coat check, wait staff, bar, or even the cake(that we picked out at The Baking Institute) and was included with all of the other things couples have to get together. I brought them a container the week of, of things they agreed to set up for me, that was helpful! They had an easy to follow payment plan(they accept Chase Quickpay) and the contract outlined all necessary schedule of events leading up to the day of. I highly recommend Astoria, no seriously, I could go on and on...Many thanks to Max, Lora, and the Astoria family for making our evening unforgettable. ~The Munnich's

What can I NOT say to rave about my wedding at Astoria!!!! Everything was AMAZING and PERFECT from start to finish!!!! Max was great to work with and always very responsive in communication. He was accommodating in requests and because of that I never felt under stress like I hear a lot of brides talk about. Astoria takes care of basically everything for you besides your DJ and photographer. The day before the wedding, I dropped off a few extra decorations that I was hoping to have scattered around the venue and Max said he would have the banquet staff take care of making sure it was set up the next day. The wedding day was perfect with absolutely no hiccups. Every bit of the day went on schedule, staff was wonderful and it was just beautiful!!! We couldn't have asked for a better evening and all of our guests had an excellent time. The food was delicious, especially when you think of how some wedding food can be so over priced yet taste like cardboard. The bar package is so affordable for top shelf, cake that is included in the package price(you get to go to the bakery and pick you flavors and design) was delicious and the bridal suite was and added bonus to get ready in. You can even choose from a great selection of centerpieces- one less stress to worry about! What a great Day!!!

Words can't express the way we feel about Astoria. If I had to choose the best way to describe Astoria, it would be old hollywood charm with a touch of glamorous. This venue is fabulous. From the owners Max and Laura, to the managers, staff, and the food! This is a venue we will actually miss because we felt at home here. The staff was excellent and treated us like family. Laura was beyond helpful in making final decisions. We hope to attend a wedding here one day just to revisit. Astoria, you will be missed !

I still can't believe how perfect this venue turned out to be! Astoria was perfect, and gorgeous!! Max was always so friendly and accommodating. It made planning a breeze. The exterior was the only thing that made me hesitate at first but after our wedding I got such great feedback. (Plus the food was great!! It was actually even a lot better than the tasting!) The only thing I would recommend is having 2 bartenders during cocktail hour. The line was out the door for most of our time and I personally was receiving complaints and had to ask multiple times to get some service in the bar area. Most people only got 1 drink, we did nt have any heavy drinkers in our crowd so I am not sure what was the issue. Overall, thank you Astoria for hosting us on our special day.
