Gabi was wonderful to work with. When we needed to reschedule due to the recent flooding throughout Southern California, she was incredibly understanding and flexible. We loved the space and our guests really enjoyed the evening. We highly recommend!

Gabi and her team were everything we could have asked for. The venue was beautiful. There's a lot of space both an inside and outside for guests to mingle (we had about 45ish people). The service was excellent - no cup was ever empty and food was always present. The booking process was easy. Gabi responded to every question I had quickly. I would book again in a heartbeat.
