Hi Bee Community,
My fiance and I checked out this venue recently and it is breathtaking. I was wondering if there were any San Francisco Bay Area brides that have used this venue for their reception before. I looked online and they have very limited photos and reviews.
So, I am turning to the bee community for some input. 🙂 Anything is highly appreciated as we are seriously looking into putting a deposit here before taxes increase in April.

I’m actually getting married there in September. It is a nice place but beware that they charge 20% service charge and tax on EVERYTHING. Also, they have strict rules like no denim, no outside drinks, and you must do valet parking on Saturdays or something like that. The staff is flexible with some things, but just make sure you read the contract carefully because they tend to change something in one place and not the other.
Oh, and the first time I went there they told me they could fit 250 people without the partition but the next time I went they said 250 WITH the partition and 14 people to a table (I think the tables are 84").
They also have strict rules on using vendors not on their approved list so make sure you get that fee waived. Also be aware that they are less responsive after you put a deposit down, but I guess that might be true with any place. Let me know if you have any other specific questions.
