I just had my wedding at this venue on August 1st, 2015 and I would like to thank the entire crew of Mountain Terrace! Caren and Sarah were both very helpful in our planning process. Caren would respond to my emails at hours I wouldn't expect her to be working! She was definitely on top of the reminders, coordinating and helping us figuring everything out. Denise and her crew made our day effortless on the day of. Denise went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable, serviced and on schedule. I didn't eat much on my day of and asked one of my bridesmaids to ask if the kitchen had a bite to eat as well as coffee. I didn't realize the kitchen didn't have coffee ready yet. Without hesitation, Denise got me a coffee from the market next door. I didn't hear this story until a week after my wedding from my husband. I am truly thankful and touched by her devotion to excellent service and making the bride feel truly special! The weather was gorgeous at Mountain Terrace on our day of and all of our guests enjoyed the delicious food/drinks/awesome bartender/class A service.

We loved this venue. It had a great rustic atmosphere with a great indoor and outdoor space. We had our ceremony and dinner outside (in July) and the weather was perfect. The landscape is beautiful with a great lawn, redwood trees and a view of the bay. We had kids and there was lots of space for them to run around and play yard games. The food and drinks were great and the catering is all included on site. We liked this venue because we didn't have to bring in catering or rent chairs, tables and linens. The staff were great. They were very easy to work with before the event and during the event, they were great. They really took care of us and our guests. Our guests were very impressed with the scenery and the food. Plus, the cost was relativly resonable for the Bay Area. We had our wedding on a Sunday, which made the rental cost less expensive. They do require a minimus of guests on Saturdays and the rental fee is higher. If you plan a smaller wedding (under 120 guests) and you want a Saturday, this venue wouldn't be for you. However, it worked perfectly for us, 70 guests on a Sunday. The only other thing to consider is the remote location. The nearest hotel is 20 minutes away down a windy country road. We hired shuttles to bring our guests up there, which cost close to $3,000. There is ample parking if people know the area and are comfortable driving up there.

The Mountain Terrace is a perfect balance between beautiful venue, amazing food, affordability and staff professionalism. We've researched over 10 venues around the San Francisco Bay Area, and found this venue to be the best option. Here is why Beautiful - the venue is nestled within the Sequoia and Redwood trees in the Santa Cruz Mountains. It has an expansive view of the peninsula below. Amazing food - I think the coordinator mentioned that their kitchen received awards. Either way, the in-house food options were very good. Affordable - this is a good price for what you're getting. Staff Professionalism - all of the staff were very professional and treated the guests with respect.

Dear Dmitri, Thank you very much for your wonderful review! It was such a pleasure celebrating with you and Elaine, and we are thrilled to hear such positive feedback from you. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. Warm wishes always, ~Sarah

We're very happy that we chose the Mountain Terrace as our venue. The property itself has a natural beauty that cut down on the need for a lot of extra decorations. The redwoods made a beautiful backdrop for our ceremony, the lawn was perfect for cocktails and portraits, and the deck allowed us to have a lovely dinner outdoors with all of our friends and family gathered around where we could see them. The interior bar and dancing area are tastefully appointed and were just the right size for our wedding. We continue to get compliments about our choice of venue from guests who were there and folks who've seen our photos afterward. We also chose to use the in-house catering service. We had been hesitant to do this at first, fearing that the quality would not be as good as an outside caterer, but the tasting proved us wrong, as did our wedding meal. They have a unique menu and are very flexible if you have off-menu requests or need something special for guests with dietary restrictions (and a lot of their standard menu items are gluten-free, vegetarian, etc.). Everything was delicious. The bartender knew what he was doing and worked with us to create signature cocktails of our design (my husband is really into craft cocktails so this was important). Finally, the customer service exceeded our expectations. Caren was our coordinator and made everything leading up to and during the wedding so much easier on us by reminding us of information she needed, reaching out to other vendors on our behalf, and making sure everything went smoothly on the day of the wedding. We really enjoyed interacting with her, and she took care of us, bringing us drinks and food while we took portraits and making sure everything moved along as scheduled. There was an additional cost to hiring her as a day-of coordinator, but it was absolutely worth it (and very reasonable compared to paying someone else).

The Mountain Terrace is a beautiful venue with a gorgeous view and a wonderful team of amazing folks who want to make your wedding a dream come true. I got married there in October 2013 and it was a blast! I can't tell you how many times I thanked my lucky stars that we managed to secure a date and find the perfect location, and for so reasonable a pricetag. We opted to have Mountain Terrace handle our catering as well, and the food was fantastic. Everyone commented on how tasty everything was, and they worked with us to create a menu that matched our tastes and worked with a few complicated dietary issues with our guests. They also handled lots of other requests with grace and professionalism, like lawn games, s'mores, signature drinks...everything you could want to make your wedding stand out. I want to give a special shout out to Caren, who is one of the nicest vendors I worked with and an all around stand-out gal. She was so patient and so quick to respond to my many questions, and she even made sure a waiter came by and fed us so we didn't pass out during our photos. Thank you, Caren!

I found Mountain Terrace to be a beautiful venue and was so lucky they had my date available! I first worked with Charisse who helped me sign the contract and get the ball rolling. Then we had our tasting date in March and met with Caren who helped answer ALL of my various questions. I worked with my wedding planner who helped pull my vision together. Mountain Terrace was a great all in one place! They handled the ceremony, reception, meal & bar! I couldn't believe what a great find this place was! Not to mention that I had the most beautiful weather that I was convinced I would not have! Thank you to the whole staff for making this place feel warm and welcoming to all my guests!

The staff at The Mountain Terrace is what makes this a spectacular choice for any couple. Pair that with charming location and beautiful views and we felt it was the perfect place for us. From the minute we walked in for our initial viewing, we pretty much knew it was where we wanted to get married. The energy was so positive, it just had an amazing vibe with some good music playing, it was cozy and magical. We didn't look any further. The staff is really warm and attentive here, they were so on top of everything. And the food was absolutely phenomenal. The other piece that makes this place such a gem is how affordable it is for what you get. Well, affordable in the wedding world. Great experience, highly recommend.

- Professional, friendly, almost no industry attitude. Very personal and flexible to plans changing at the last minute. - Can provide stuff you don't have or didn't think of (heating lamps, cake plate, decor), sometimes at no additional charge - eg. we got some extra heat lamps for free because they had them sitting around! Very appreciated. - Really attentive to you and your guests. Subtle at the same time -- provided great service without us even noticing in that very moment. Switched decor, attention of the guests, etc. quickly depending on schedule for the evening. When we arrived a little later from the ceremony, dinner was pushed back a little with no issues. - Totally stress-free experience. Takes care of everything basically - would recommend to others!

Our overall experience with the Mountain Terrace was absolutely fabulous. The place is very beautiful. We had about 130 guests and it was really perfect for that number. The ceremony was on the lawn. Then the cocktail hour on the lawn and under the trees. We were able to eat outside on the deck, which was nice. I was a bit worried since up front they are very assertive about their various "rules" and additional charges. But the day of, they were very cool and accommodating. Also, I was worried about noise for the outdoor ceremony. but that too was not a problem. I was really impressed by the service. Didn't really seem to be the kind of place that would have such good service, but they did, really it was top notch. My biggest complaint is the indoor dining room. The floor of that room is far from level. It slopes dramatically. This tends to give me a little vertigo. It's really weird. we had MT cater too. and that worked out great. the food was excellent. Having them do the catering was a really good idea. I think lots of things were made easier by letting MT do everything. Also, the alcohol was reasonably priced. Paying on a per person basis is the only way to go. Lots of other places charge per drink. I couldn't deal with the stress of people spilling drinks and also i had no good way of estimating how much the guests would drink. Their house wine that went with the basic package was just terrible, particularly the red wine. They should seriously rethink that. I am by no means a wine connoisseur, but this wine was clearly of poor quality. Also, it wasn't from California. I felt that my guests coming from all over the country to northern CA would be expecting something better and/or local. But they were very accommodating in allowing us to bring our own wine and even credited us for their wine that we didn't drink. lastly, the value for the cost was good. Our friends in the area were surprised about what we spent given the quality. In general, weddings are too expensive. But you would be hard pressed to find a better deal in Woodside.

The staff at TMT was AMAZING! We had very good communication leading up to the big day, and they were incredibly flexible with all my requests. Day of, the staff waited on my hand and foot! I said something, and it was done! And even with falling behind on our schedule, they were so professional about everything. I never felt stressed or pressured by the staff. And of course, the view is SPECTACULAR! All our guests were amazed at the venue and couldn't believe how perfectly everything went. Thank you TMT!!!

We loved having our ceremony and reception at Mountain Terrace. The setting is beautiful, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the food was very good. There were lots of little additional charges for various little things, but they were up front about them. Everyone commented about what a beautiful venue it was and we loved having our wedding there. We worried about music volume for our band beforehand but it did not turn out to be a problem. Just remember it is chilly there at night - even in August!
