I cannot think of enough kind words to say about this venue. We stumbled upon their website by chance. My moh, mom and I took one tour and that made up our minds. In fact, Riverside had all of the features that I wanted in a venue including atmosphere, menu selection and a wonderful staff. Our guests are still giving us complements on Riverside. I primarily worked with Frances and she is such a wonderful woman. The element of my wedding celebration that I am most proud of is Riverside Receptions. They really set the standard for weddings.

Riverside is a gorgeous setting and the people who work there are very helpful. My wedding is booked for October 15th 2017 and I couldn't be more excited. Very happy and I have only heard good things from everyone who has used them that I know.

We had our wedding here back in September and absolutely loved it! Riverside Receptions is such a beautiful venue! From the beginning of planning with Riverside, the staff were so helpful and quick in getting back with emails or phone calls. They gave a folder of informaiton and a timeline/checklist for when we needed to get things done. That was so helpful! We worked a lot with Amy and she was great to work with! Also the minimums were very reasonable compared to other places in the area that we looked at. It made paying for the wedding that we wanted, so much easier. The food tasting gave us a great sense of their delicious food and the food was just as great (possibly better) on the wedding day. All of our guest loved the food! It was very helpful to us that Riverside also included the cake in the price (they work with The Cakery) and that cake was delicious too! We had our ceremony outside but had the reasurance that we could be inside given the weather (and no additional charge either!). This was a huge relief and we ended up having the ceremony in their beautiful courtyard. Everything during the reception went smoothly and the staff were so great. This was the perfect venue for us; from how great the staff were through the planning and the actual wedding, to the food, to the decor. I still can't get over how beautiful it all was and our pictures our gorgous!

Riverside Receptions was the perfect choice for us! From our first conversations with Riverside staff it was clear their customer service was exceptional. Every visit, phone call, and email with Amy, Janelle, Frances, and Tina was received with cheerfulness and professionalism. They were incredibly responsive, and followed through on every detail we requested in the planning process. We had about 150 guests (from a guest list of about 205) and used the second floor space. All details were arranged perfectly prior to our guests' arrival. Amy introduced us to her assistant dining staff supervisor promptly so we knew who our point of contact was throughout the evening for any requests--none needed since everything was perfect! They pride themselves on ensuring only two tables are served by 1 waiter which means very attentive service throughout the night. The food was delicious with great portion sizes and a nice presentation (we also enjoyed the lovely tasting they arrange for their couples and up to 4 guests in the months leading to the wedding date). The view of the river is what makes Riverside so iconic in the area but all other details offer beautiful rustic, classic charm. The pricing for our size of event was very reasonable in the Chicagoland area. We were happy that Riverside had many preferred partner vendors such as the Cakery. This helped everything go smoothly as these vendors collaborate often, and helped us save. Another key feature is that Riverside is a "one stop shop" providing in-house service staff, tables, chairs, linens, and china, etc. -- no need to hunt down piecemeal vendors. And the space has a big dance floor! Riverside Receptions will forever be a special place to us. Thank you so much for making our night exactly what we hoped for and providing a great experience for our guests on the River!

We are completely thrilled we chose Riverside for our wedding reception. We worked mostly with Frances, but anyone on their sales team was available at any time to answer our questions. We had a larger guest list, so we booked the upstairs area for our Friday night wedding. Riverside could not have done a better job, they were attentive, extremely helpful with any questions I had, and the "night of manager" even worked hard to figure out an issue with our florist that they technically shouldn't have had to worry about. I had a specific vision for our reception and the staff was able to accommodate our every request, from the drink list to decorations and table layout. The food was great, we picked, NY Strip, Chicken and Salmon for our guests as entrees, with several butler passed hors d'oeuvres, and a table of additional appetizers. Our only food compliant was the Tomato Basil soup... it tasted like marinara sauce instead of a traditional cream based soup. But out of everything, that is the one and only complaint. Book with Riverside Receptions, whichever level you book (or both) you will not be disappointed with the outstanding service, quality, food and view of the location.

We held our wedding reception at Riverside Receptions in June 2017. We were extremely happy with our experience from beginning to end! Everyone in their office is friendly, helpful, and genuinely wants you to have the event of your dreams. We were looking for a venue with gorgeous views, delicious food, and a price point that we could afford. Riverside Receptions delivered on all accounts! We reserved the second floor for our reception with the floor to ceiling panoramic windows overlooking the Fox River. THE VIEW IS SPECTACULAR! We fell in love with the view immediately and our guests are still talking about how picturesque the venue was. As a bride on a budget, I greatly appreciated that Riverside offered us the option to use one of their birdcages for cards, their cake server, and a variety of centerpiece options. This was a big deal for me because I wanted beautiful d├ęcor, but I did not want to store 18 lanterns after the wedding was over. We used their lanterns and floating candles as part of our centerpieces. We primarily worked with Frances throughout our wedding planning process. Frances is very knowledgeable about the wedding industry and was happy to answer all of our questions. She was amazing!

My husband and I could not be happier with how our wedding turned out - everything was handled extremely professionally, from first booking to the final moments of our day. The staff patiently listened to all of my instructions and special requests, and decorated exactly the way we envisioned everything to look. Amy was our day of coordinator, and was seriously a life saver - she is so professional, calming and kind, and helped us all stay on track. Without her guidance, I would have been a nervous wreck! She never made us feel rushed or like she didn't have time for us, and she genuinely cared about every detail. The food was also INCREDIBLE!! Both my husband and I are allergic to peanuts, and had a few other dietary requests for our wedding guests - Amy handled these flawlessly and made special accommodations for us. We got so many compliments on the food - it was unforgettable. Thank you Riverside for giving us the best day of our lives!!!

I don't think I can find the words to explain how perfect this venue was and is. You know how you go to weddings and its just wedding food? This place. Man. Everyone talked about how amazing the food was and it WAS!! Frances was amazing and our day was perfect. It is a unique and quaint venue and perfect for our style. We got married 1-7-17 and asked that they keep up the winter/Christmas decorations and it was beyond beautiful. This was the only venue we looked at and we knew we wanted to get married there! After that everything just fell into place! So picturesque, perfect, professional, accommodating and amazing food. Loved our special day and would do it exactly the same!

Frances and Riverside Receptions did a wonderful job on our wedding. We had our ceremony downstairs with cocktail hour following and then the reception upstairs and everything went wonderfully. The staff was very attentive all throughout the night. The food was wonderful and I received so many compliments on the Boursin mashed potatoes (they are a must!). RIverside also was able to set up a TV in the upstairs bar so that the Cubs game could be played for our guests. Everything went so smoothly at Riverside, I did NOT have to worry about one thing; I would recommend this venue to anyone!

Great location for our ceremony and reception. The staff took care of everything and made sure we were able to utilize all of our minimum since we had a small event. Food was excellent; facility was perfect! And great location in downtown Geneva.
