Had my wedding reception here and I absolutely LOVED IT!!!! It was worth every penny. The staff was very professional and helpful. They loaded my gifts into my parents car and I didn't have to worry about a thing. The food was AMAZINGLY AMAZING, we had the Italian buffet. The punch was very good also. My husband couldn't get enough of it. The bridal room is so beautiful. If its within your budget I recommend you add this in. Trust me you will need it. Plus it comes with a private bathroom for the bride. The centerpieces they made us were so beautiful. I went with the vase and the natural flowers so my guests could take them home. Gina, the coordinator, was absolutely the best. She went above and beyond for us and she made us feel like royalty. Emily, was also great she made sure everyone seated at my head table had everything they needed. Lastly, my cake was super delicious. I went with the house filling. Half vanilla and half chocolate. It's not moist but it was still good because they gave us milk, coffee and tea. I would recommend this place to everyone! One of my groomsmen already said he will be getting married there also because he loved it!!
I'm excited to write this review for The Garden Room after I had the MOST amazing baby shower this past weekend at their La Habra location.First off the staff especially Emily were all GREAT. Very welcoming and accommodating from the beginning through to the very end. Booking with the Garden Room ensures you have a security guard and a "helper" person throughout the whole event, Emily was our helper and she really was awesome, patient, calm, helpful and friendly. The venue is perfect for a baby shower not over the top its cozy and welcoming with ample space. The food was really really good. I was a little bit nervous about it since they don't offer an option of trying the food prior to booking but we went with the Italian buffet and it tasted GREAT. I was super busy speaking with guests and wasn't able to personally try the assorted desserts but my guests all seemed to love them we had chocolate cake and other options that again I wasn't able to taste :( At the very end the security guard even helped us take all of our presents and load them in the car. Thank you to everyone at the Garden Room for helping create a timeless memory for us. :)
With only about 3 months to plan, we decided on The Garden Room for our parents 50th wedding anniversary last October 2014. We were so happy with our coordinator, Gina, always so helpful and available to answer our million questions! Leading up to the event went smooth. If we had any concerns (a couple of our guests have peanut allergies) it was easily taken care of with no problem. We were so pleased the night of the party. We used the chapel for my parents vow renewals. It was perfect. The lighting and the seating was great. Our guests and our family enjoyed the food (lots to choose from at the buffet!) the room itself looks so pretty!! Our coordinator checked in with us throughout the night to see if we needed anything. She also served my parents their dinner which was so kind. I would recommend The Garden Room for your next special event :)
This review comes from a unique perspective. I am a DJ that was hired to DJ a wedding being held at the Garden Room. Having been a working DJ for over 20 years and having performed at numerous weddings, I was not sure what to expect.
At the rehearsal, I met Gina who was the coordinator for the wedding. I should mention that prior to the rehearsal, My bride and groom gave me an entertainment agreement to sign from the venue stating clearly their rules and regulations. Mostly common sense things like music cannot reach over 100db and load in and load out timeframes. I was just a little apprehensive... after talking to Gina, my concerns were completely alleviated. They have acoustic tiles in the ceiling to absorb the sound... 100 db was not going to be a concern. Gina went on to show me the area set up for DJ's and all of the accommodations that they have for vendors.
The chapel was beautiful and opened to the reception room allowing the sound system to stay in place.
At the rehearsal, Gina took care of everything... Made my job so easy.
The day of the ceremony, I walked in to a beautifully decorated room. It was completely ready. Gina and her staff worked with me step by step to ensure that everything went perfect.
Overall, it was an excellent event. The food was great. The staff was awesome to work with. I would have no problem recommending the Garden Room to future clients.
Came here as a guest this past weekend for a wedding and I was beyond impressed.
I've passed The Garden Room many times since I grew up in the Garden Grove/Westminster area. From the outside the facility does not look that extravagant. The building is made of red bricks with white fences alongside the perimeter, very plain.
FACILITY: Once you enter, the inside of the building takes a 360. To your immediate right is an area designated for a ceremony. It includes simple classy white chairs, a mini grand piano, and a beautiful alter with flowers.
Continue walking down a short hallway and a nice winding stairway surrounded my huge mirrors and flowers is to your left. The flowers reflect off the mirrors giving the impression that more flowers are there when they're not, a very good decoration choice.
Further along, you are now at the bar. Depending on what package the bride and groom purchases, drinks may be complementary. Be sure to bring ID, it will be checked! If drinks are not complementary, I overheard the bartender say that a beer can range from $4-$5. Not sure how much wine or well drinks are. You can also purchase non-alcoholic drinks here: coke, sprite, juices, etc.
Upon entering the main ballroom you will notice that it is considerably big (not too big) and open. In the ballroom there is another staircase where the wedding party will use to make their grand entrances. There is a bridal room upstairs of course.
Very nice gazebo outside, picture opportunity!
The restrooms are very clean. Toilet paper and toilet seat covers, fully stocked. A necessity for women ;)
SERVICE: I've personally planned banquets and balls before and one of the things I noticed at The Garden Room compared to other event facilities was that the actual Event Planner is on the floor. Throughout the night I saw the Event Planner as well as her team checking up on all the guests. They helped with seat assignments and even took part in the active role of serving us. When you have an Event Planner on the floor, the quality of service is on point. You definitely want this to be true on your special day. If anything goes wrong, you can directly go to the event planner. At all the other facilities I just prayed that nothing went wrong.
The bride and groom at the wedding I attended opted for a buffet style dinner. All the servers were genuinely nice and even had small conversations with us while we waited in line. I absolutely enjoyed the staff here!
Regarding the negative reviews about how some guests had to wait in line for food, the event team dismissed us by tables. This helped with the traffic flow at the buffet line and it went very smoothly. For appetizers, chicken wings was one of the selections and it was one of the first appetizers to go. Unfortunately I did not have a taste, but I assumed it was very good since it was the first to go.
Overall I thoroughly enjoyed myself as a guest at The Garden Room :)
Im pretty surprised by the bad reviews, i guess people feel they should be in a actual castle in a amazing garden off the cliffs of hawaii, please this is a fantastic place in la habra that has everything you could possibly need for a wedding, my wife and i got married here in june of last year and the service, food, and presentation was just amazing. our wedding coordinator really helped through out the whole evening and the security guard was helpful and friendly. i am still very surprised by the bad reviews here, i think people expect a lil to much. THIS PLACE IS GREAT.
We had a 90th birthday party at the Garden Room in La Habra. We received many compliments on the venue from our guests. It was easy to find for out-of-state guests as well as locals. There was plenty of parking. The facility was accessible for seniors with walkers and canes. The outdoor spaces were lovely and provided several photo opportunities. The building interior was clean and neat with a sensible floor plan. The Garden Room is a single-event facility and it was wonderful having the whole place to ourselves.
Inside, we had plenty of space for our music, a memory station and a photo booth, Garden Room staff assisted us with setup and cleanup. They provided us with two easels for the poster-sized photographs. We were able to set up several 12x12 and 16x20 prints on the head table and other posters behind the cake table. Mirrors around the room brightened and opened up the space.
Even though we had a buffet, Garden Room staff served our senior citizens and were were quick to accommodate other guests with their needs, such as additional silverware or refilled pitchers at the tables. They made special salads with no dressing on request. We were pleased with the professional catering staff. They were dressed impeccably and conducted themselves professionally throughout the event.
The fruit was delicious and arranged beautifully in a tower. We had Italian food and our guests loved it. My children had several helpings of meatballs and sausages. The adults seemed to enjoy the stuffed shells and lasagna. The Tiramisu was to die for.
The bar tender and security staff were probably bored with our quiet crowd but they were also professional and quite nice and friendly. Overall, we found the garden Room in La Habra to be the perfect venue for our event. Thanks Garden Room staff, Gina, Juan and Donna for helping make this special day memorable.
Just had my daughters wedding on April 27, 2014 and I cant say enough about the Garden Room. Everything was perfect and the food was excellent. I would definately recommend this location and do another event there. The prices was nice for a young couple to handle paying to get married.
There are a multitude of things to be addressed, considered, and evaluated when planning a wedding. The Garden Room provided my bride and I a lot of help and convenience. We were able to take care of the ceremony, reception, cake (delicious!), and flowers (Thanks, Gina!) all through The Garden Room -- and we were very pleased with all aspects. Kim was very helpful in getting us organized before the actual wedding -- all of our questions were answered and she was very accommodating to our rather short (and thus a bit rushed) engagement of just over three months. We definitely appreciated Diane's help during the event itself -- things ran smoothly and she made sure my bride and I had everything we needed (in addition to our over 100 guests). Jerry was very helpful with getting our things together as the event wound down and for helping us get our things loaded into the car as we prepared to depart. We've also had numerous guests who have specifically complimented the facilities, appetizers, food, cake, and organization of the event. My bride and I are very appreciative of everyone at The Garden Room who made our event a success!
I am so glad that my husband and I chose The Garden Room as our wedding reception venue. The staff here are very professional, and answered all of my questions with such a great attitude. It is evident that they truly working here. We signed our contract about 9 months before our wedding. Throughout my engagement, I had so many questions, especially a month before the Big Day, and I never felt like I was bothering them. There are so many emotions that a bride goes through while planning a wedding and my coordinators, Laura and Gina, always spoke to me in a calm tone and were very understanding.
For my wedding day, we had two coordinators and a security guard on site, and they took care of everything with professionalism and calm. They served my husband and I dinner - and we were the first ones to eat before the rest of the party. I thought that was amazing because I've heard stories in how the husband and bride were not able to eat at their wedding. My guests raved on how delicious the food was! Throughout the night, my coordinators were making sure everything ran smoothly and stayed in communication with my matron/maid of honor to make sure I had all my personal belongings out of the venue before closing at midnight. I highly recommend this venue.
My daughter was married on October 20 2012. We had the wedding reception at the Garden Room in La Habra. From the first interview to the last wedding guest out the door after the reception, our experience at The Garden Room could not have been more perfect! I cannot express our gratitude enough to Laura and Gina and the rest of their talented staff, for making my daughter's dream come true. From picking out colors, food, photographers,flowers, cake and DJ we were thrilled with the level of professionalism, courtsey and class. Who needs a wedding planner? We had the best help anyone could ask for! The venue itself is dreamy and romantic. No signs of fatigue in the decor here. Everything is spotless! They even have a special room for the bride to change her clothes. There were so many details that we may have missed if Laura and Gina hadn't been there for us. I had so many guests tell me that the food was wonderful, the staff extremely warm and helpful and the venue beautiful. I could go on and on, but why don't you call The Garden Room and see for yourself. You will be delighted.
This place is perfect in my opinion. Dinner was a sit down dinner service and food both out standing. Brought in all of or own vendors paid extra for this but it was worth it everything went as planned. Lisa the cordinator for my daughters wedding was wonderful. There were no extra charges than what was discussed prior to the event and to the signing of the contract. The cake was beautiful and the flowers on the cake were really not fake. I would highly recommened this place to anyone I know.I think sometimes some people expect to much for what they are paying. The options were there buffet verses sit down the cheaper of the two is going to look cheaper of course. This place let you pick your colors I had a service come in with chair covers which added a nice touch. I think these brides should be a little less critical the place is lovely.

My husband and I just had our wedding here March 23, 2012. What a spectacular job the Garden Room of La Habra did. A very special thank you to Laura for all her kind assistance and to all the staff excellent job. The food was very good we had several compliments on the food from our guests. The Garden Room is a cozy, gorgeous, beautiful place to have an event. They sure made our special day a success. I highly recommend the Garden Room. One suggestion the gift table location should be in the reception room. Thanks again to all the staff. Mike and Lisa Anaheim, CA
I have never wrote a review on yelp. I think the Garden Room in Garden Grove deserves a good review!!! My husband and I just got married there March 9, 2012 and we loved it. everything went so well! from the food to the details. Kim the coordinator really was so sweet and was always there for us. She did her best to answer our questions and concerns. we are so happy we choose this venue. The staff were very nice from the florist Gina to the Security! :) I hope this review will help future brides and grooms.
By George G
Extremely satisfied with this place! Had a wedding reception here in November of last year. Kim was exceptional. Very attentive and understanding with our wants and needs. The place is gorgeous and extremely clean. All the employees were extrememely polite and helpful. The food was delicious and all at a very good price compared to other facilities. Would definitely recommend this location to someone looking for an event location.
This was our second go around with the Garden Room. My daughter was married there in 1994 and when my son told us he was getting married, we choose the Garden Room again. We can't say enough about Laura and her guidance thru the whole process. I cant say enough about the facility, cleanliness, and it is decorated beautifully. Both times we chose to go with their recommendations for flowers, DJ and photographer and could not have been happier with them and their services. We chose the Mexican buffet and got any compliments on the food. We were not rushed thru dinner and the food was left out for a reasonable amount of time and our guests were able to go for second and third helpings. I was a little disappointed on that the dishes were not cleared from the dinner tables once the buffet was closed however.. I don't have anymore children to worry about getting married, but if I ever need a party place, this is the place to go. Thanks to all of you. Andy and Katie, January 8th, 2012
Me and my husband Raul just got married at the garden room(in la habra) about 2 weeks ago, 10/22/2011 and we just absloutely loved it. As soon as we walked in we knew it was the place we were going to get married. The ladies there that helped, Laura and Erin were such pleasent people, they made you feel comfortable and were so nice. We order our flowers there through Gina and she did an awesome job. Everything about the place we loved, the atmosphere,the food,the people. There very helpful there and have a coordinator the day of your wedding to make sure things go smoothly. I would defitnitley recommend the garden room. Our guests couldnt stop talking about how beauitful the place was and how good the food was(we got lemon chicken and roast beef). We can honestly say our wedding was stress free and enjoyed every minute of our big day. Thank you the garden room, it was a wonderful experience!

July 01, 2011 I had my wedding reception at this place. It was great !!!!! Every one there was very professional. Kim was my coordinator, she was on top of everything. Our night went smooth. The feedback from our guest, only positive comments. Appetizers delicious !!!!! Food delicious !!!! The place beautiful !!! Thank you to every one at the Garden Room, for the great memories on my wedding day.
I knew the day we stopped by the Garden Room that it would be perfect for our wedding. Laura, Erin & Gina are truly the BEST! The facility is immaculate and their organization is on point. All of my guest are raving about this hidden gem in La Habra. You will not be disappointed! The food was excellent and the flowers and cake were beyond beautiful. Thanks sooooooooooooooooooooooo much for making everything so picture perfect. Kevin & Jacqueline July 17, 2011

Attended a birthday party on June 26, 2011 for Mr. Rudy Obad. From the time we arrived at the Garden Room we where greeted at the door by two staff members that where very cordial. The room was beautiful and perfectly arranged with the buffet off to the side in another room. We where directed to dinner by a staff member by tables. Everything ran smoothly. The food was excellent and the cakes where yummy. Hope I get a chance to go back for another event.
Kim, the purpose of this letter is to thank you and your entire staff for your part in making our 50th Wedding Anniversary celebration a most memorable event.
As a customer service professional with over 40-years of experience, I know, understand and appreciate quality customer service. In my opinion, you and your staff provide superior customer service in a superb manner! Your expertise and attention to detail, along with that of your staff, resulted in an experience that can only be described as outstanding.
Our compliments to the catering staff as well. The food was delicious and the presentation pleasing. Many of our guests commented on the tastiness of both the buffet selections and the appetizers. The cake was as delicious as it was beautiful! We could not have asked for anything more. To borrow an old baseball analogy, "You hit it out of the park!"
In addition, your list of DJ and photographer referrals was most helpful. As you know, we ultimately selected Chris Lee of Silver Disc Entertainment and George Fenton of Fenton Photography. Both were terrific, easy to work with, and both added immensely to the success of our event, particularly Chris' role as Emcee.
Please feel free to share this letter with potential clients.
Thank you for making my day perfect. The Garden Room La Habra made my dream come true. Our wedding was beautiful. I had so many compliments about the decoration, the food, the staff. Everything went really good. Erin and Laura were amazing, they were on top of everything. I highly recommend this venue for your future events. They have everything you might be looking for and they have many options for menus. Our wedding was on February and It was the best day of our life. Thank you Garden Room.
There are not enough words to use to explain our experience having our wedding at the Garden Room in Garden Grove. The place is beautiful. The staff was so sweet including Ricky the security guard. Kim is the best!!! There was no time to be nervous or stress about anything Kim was always there to ensure that everything was perfect. They give you an option of using their referred vendor list, and I found many professional wedding vendors from the list.
The pictures on the Garden Room website are beautiful however does not do the Garden Room justice. Once you walk into the Garden Room you will know its the place you want to spend that special day.
We, along with our family and friends will be referring everyone to the Garden Room.
Thanks to the Garden Room in Garden Room and a special thanks to Kim.
My Husband and I got Married on October 16, 2010.. a lil late review but still wanted to tell you about my INCREDIBLE experience with the Garden Room.. We were so happy with the service, especially with KIM.. She was wonderful and always made us smile! She was always hands on and there when I had a question.. She even calmed me down on my wedding day with a simple hug. Gina, did our flowers and they were GORGEOUS and dried out beautiful.. They have everything there for you to make it so easy from the chapel, to cake, flowers, and etc.. We are so very thankful for the garden room for making our wedding a night to always remember. Thanks again!!!! I highly recommend this venue to any bride it was a great experience and STRESS FREE!!!!
Our wedding was on Friday, 12/17/10. We greatly appreciate all of the help we received from our wedding coordinator, Laura. She was just great! Her and the staff made it very easy for us to keep everything on track. We received information packets and checklists that made such a difference on the days before the wedding. We decided to go with the wedding package upgrade where they decorate the tables and place the centerpieces for us and everything looked beautiful! The staff welcomed my husband and I as we arrived as well as all of our guests. They helped everyone find their tables and helped them with the gifts. Laura was also the bar tender and she made excellent drinks. The dinner was buffet style and my husband and I were taken care of. She brought us our plates and served us and took care of everything we needed. I cannot thank them enough. They were all great to work with, very professional and always friendly.
There isn't a cake or food testing and so we were a bit unsure of what to expect, however, we were very pleasantly surprised. Both the food and the cake were excellent!
The security guard was very friendly and super helpful. As we left he helped us load up the gifts.
Thank you so much for your help on our wedding day! We really appreciate it. The vendor referral list made our life so much easier.
I just had to write and tell you how wonderful The Garden Room did our wedding reception. The room was decorated beautifully and everything went smoothly during the reception. All of my guests commented on how beautiful the room was and how good the food was too. A very special thank you to Laura for making our day so special. You won't go wrong using the Garden Room (we used the La Habra location) as your wedding place. Wayne and I were very pleased with how smoothly everything went.
This place was awesome. They catered to our every need. The wedding went off without a hitch. I don't think I could have found a more wonderful place to get married. They had excellent service and took care of everything. I didn't have to deal with anything, just got married and had a good time. They even loaded the gifts in the cars for us. This is a hassle free no worry location.
EXCELLENT SERVICE! Wedding date (10/10/10) Thank you very much to all the staff of The Garden Room in La Habra, California especially to Laura who was very helpful and very professional. All our guests were impressed with their excellent service and cleanliness of the facility. Our wedding would not have been successful without the expertise and diligent of the staff of The Garden Room in La Habra. Again, Thank you so much and more power to you. The vendor list was absoluteyly a life saver, I loved it.
My daughter was married at the Gardenroom in La Habra, the staff was amazing, everything was done so professionally. The day was perfect, the food was wonderful and the cake was gorgeous. Thank you so much for making my daughter's dreams come true..... Lisa Escobar
A beautiful location for a wedding. From the beautiful winding oak staircase for the entrance of the bride, to the incrediable stained glass chapel windows and a baby grand piano for music during the ceremony, made my friends ceremony intimate and romantic. The bar was located between the chapel and banquet room, great idea! The flowers I found out were done by their onstaff florist, absolutely breathtaking! The theme was carried out from the bouquets to the centerpieces and all the way through to the cake, all were beautiful! The banquet room featured another grand staircase for their entrance, classey. Food was elegantly served and was delicious. Loved how everything was structured leaving plenty of time for dancing after all the formal events. Staff was friendly and professional, and the food was delicious.
Several photo opportunities throughout the establishment including a beautiful gazebo surrounded by a flowing waterfall and pond with bridge and flowers and plants everywhere. Grounds and the building were well maintained and very clean. A great location!
I had my wedding there May 2010. I did not want a wedding but my husband and family all wanted one. I am so thankful that they all convinced me to have one. It was beautiful and the Garden Room kept everything running smooth. I would and have recommended them to friends and family. Everyone is nice. I worked closely with Kim, Erin and Gina and they were wonderful. Kim answered all my bridezilla questions. Thanks Kim, you are the BEST!!! Gina did all my flowers and they were perfect. Erin talked to me right before I walked down and kept me calm. The entire staff worked together to make everything great. No problems. My wedding was more than I could have ever imagined. One more thing, the bouncer was super great and we used all their vendors. Our D.J. was Chris and Photographer was Dean (The Garden Room can give you their numbers), flowers from Gina... they were all wonderful. If I had to do it again, II would not change a thing. :)
★★★★☆ Very nice wedding facility

I have been to two weddings at the Garden Room and both were very nice. The facility is very spacious inside even though it looks a little small from the outside. There is ample parking. Facilities are available for an indoor chapel ceremony or outdoor gazebo ceremony. The winding staircase inside makes a striking entrance for the bride. Beautiful chapel and very nice reception room. Food was also very good both times I was there. I believe the prices are also very reasonable.
Absolutely beautiful inside. Everything runs like clockwork. They'll take care of everything. There's even a nice cozy lounge area to kick back in. I've been a guest there for a few weddings now. My friends liked it so much, they decided to get married there, as well!
This place makes you want to get married many times!! My wedding was on Fri, Feb 19th. I have to say the staff is exceptional, especially events coordinator Laura. She is cheerful, accomodating and knows what she's doing. Always on task and made this day so much more easier. THANKS LAURA! UR DA BEST! I have to say, the next day I received about 20 txt msgs from guests telling me how nice the place was, how good the food was and how everything was so organized. I will forever brag to all upcoming brides about this venue. Again, GARDEN ROOM...thank you so much for making this day the BEST DAY OF MY LIFE!
My Husband and I were Married at the Garden Room on Sat. May 15, 2010. We could not be happier with the service we received (we always left with a smile after every appointment). They were polite and kept our wedding flowing at a perfect pace. Our wedding was everything we could have ever wanted and the Garden Room was a big part of that. Even our Guest loved the garden room. I would HIGHLY recommend this venue for any Bride that is looking for a Beautiful place with a staff that is experienced.
I have had three daughters who all have used the Garden Room over the past seven years, two at this facility and one at their other facility in La Habra. Both are beautiful and we were so pleased to hear that our last daughter wanted to get married there too.
The quality of the food and service is just excellent and they have not raised their prices in the years we've used them. The value is simply remarkable. In addition to the great food and service, the place is super CLEAN! We attended a wedding for my nephew over 12 years ago and the place looks as clean and as new as it did then. We even noticed several upgrades over the past few years that have made it even better.
We got married (La Habra location) just a few weeks ago and all of our guests loved it. They raved about the food, and the dj that the venue helped us choose. It is a beautiful place to get married. There are rules, however I have never known a place that holds such events to not have rules. The staff was great and everything was ran very well for us that day. They were very helpful and whenever I needed a question to be answered they did efficiently. It was so beautiful and we couldn't have asked for a better day!! The only down fall that day was the construction work that was being done on the street, but there wasn't anything they could have done to prevent that. Thank you Laura for all your help and running everything so smoothly!!!
We just had our wedding reception at the Garden Room in La Habra a week ago. It was the best experience ever. The staff was very very helpful. They were on top of everything. The food was delicious and the cake was amazing. Laura was the party captain on duty that evening and she was the one i dealt with when we signed our contract and when we did our final. Lisa the owner was also very helpful in answering any questions i had when i would call even if it was after hours. I thank you all very much for making this special day very very memorable. Everything went perfect that evening (except for my dress bussel which broke before the grand entrance but the staff was great and they helped pin it up for me with safety pins). I am so grateful to you all. Lonnie the security guard was also very polite and worked with us regarding a alcohol incident. I would definitely recommend this facility to other couples that are looking for a venue . Thank you very very much to all the Staff at both the La Habra Garden Room and The Garden Grove Garden Room for all your help in making this a truly memorable event!!!
Well we had my daughter Quinceanera in June we really had great time and Diane was very help full very nice, she wait for us, all the time we need to serve dinner, since our guest show up late, many rules but some times you need it with all this teens we had, I was afraid of all my friends and family with their kids since where very strict with the kids, but we all have very good time no worries, no body complain we all have great time, food was great, we was a little worry about the food since, we don't give you the chance to taste the food prior to the event, but we was impress with the food , I went to many Quinceanera and the food is very bad, and other complement the ice tea!!! we love the ice tea ,very good, Chris the DJ they recommended from Silver Disc Entertainment was excellent and very professional, all very organized I really want a thank allot to Diane she was very very good with a very nice personality, and the security guy was very polite with every body no body complain even do we have to talk to him regarding different issues, but he lways was there to help us, the flowers on the main table where very pretty we all have very good time no regrets, all we received from our friends and family where complements, my Daughter had a great time. I want to thank Kim since she give us advise regarding the DJ and who can be a good choice for our party thank you. Thank you Garden Room you guys ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Having our wedding here was the perfect choice. The Garden Room does have rules about sneaking in your own alcohol, and trying to help keep the wedding running on time. Alcoholics or unprepared people would have challenges here. The day of our wedding quite a few guests (hispanic and guy friends) were running late, the garden room asked me if I wanted to give them more time and delay the wedding or proceed with the wedding without them. How rude of them to offer such a choice (Sarcasm for the slow).
The flowers were better than any florist we visited. Diane was awesome to work with. The big bouncer guy was awesome with my friends (who are known to get in trouble any where they go) and helped get all of our presents to the car. The service was awesome and efficient.
The Garden Room helped make this day perfect for us and take off a lot of stress. The prices couldn't be beat, the chapel was great because we chose who we want to marry us (many churches won't allow that)and even the older people that think it's mandatory to get married in a church loved the chapel.
Our only hiccups were with our DJ and Photographer which were people WE chose outside of their referral list and after looking at many others. They'll have their own seperate reviews on their website.
My only dissappointment is that I'm getting married once because I would marry again here in a heartbeat.
Oh my gosh what an adorable place! I had an absolute blast here a while back and just had to leave a comment. Finally a place where everything is in one location, no extra driving. The Roast Beef melted in my mouth, the cake was so beautiful with flowers down the front. But above all that was the staff who ran the event. What a great bunch of people who worked hard and were so friendly. I have some great photos to remember the great time we had.
The Garden Room made our special day all that more special. Laura & Kim were amazing and we would like to thank them for making it as wonderful as it was. They were both fun and made the process run smoothly. Thanks again! Chris & Ariel
I loved my wedding at the Garden Room. It was so nice to have everything taken care of in house. We used the recommended photographer, videographer, pastor, and DJ. All were professional and we loved the product. There are rules for weddings here, but we found them to make our day effortless and worry free. We were able to personalize our wedding to accommodate family traditions with no problems. We have heard only positive comments from guests, and have friends who booked their weddings at the Garden Room after attending ours.
My sister got married at the Garden Room and it was beautiful! I was a bridesmaid, and as soon as we got there people were ready to assist us, up to the bridal room. It was nice to have a coordinator help with all the details. My sister (the bride) and her groom, seemed to be pretty calm and confident that everything would be perfect, and it was. The whole night was a blast and everyone enjoyed themselves. The staff was very professional and courteous. The security guard even helped me put all the gifts in the car since I was the one in charge of them. I wish I would have been able to have such good service at my wedding. I contracted a place that was not so beautiful nor organized.
I can't believe that anyone could have such a bad experience at the Garden Room! My wedding was in April 2008 and I have nothing but great things to say about the service we received from start to finish. Everyone was very efficient and things ran very smoothly because we knew all the rules ahead of time before we signed the contract! We knew what to expect. The place could not stay that clean and beautiful without those rules in place. Otherwise, you would have to rent just any ordinary hall where you have to do all of the work, without any rules (TACKY). Everyone was very nice to me and my husband even that "BIG" Guy who was the security guard. He was such a sweetheart. If it weren't for him keeping an eye on my guests, I probably would not have received my entire deposit back.
We could not have asked for more at the Garden Room in Garden Grove. Lisa and Diane were knowledgable, helpful, and a delight to work with. They took care of everything so we could just relax and enjoy our daughters wedding. My daughter fell in love the place when she saw the 2 spiral staircases and the beautiful facilities. I liked the one stop shopping.
On the day of the wedding Diane was there taking care of every detail and the wedding could not have run smoother. This is an extremely professionally run operation with a friendly helpful staff. Lisa and Diane made us feel comfortable every step of the way.
Ricky (security) was terrific. He was extemely professional and helpful. He even loaded up all of the presents in the car at the end of the night.
The only challenge I had all night was tryng to keep from crying. I failed but it was tears of joy.
We followed Diane's advice and used their recommended DJ and Photographer and were very pleased. They were familiar with the layout which gave us a sense of confidence.
It was so convenient having the chapel, food, reception, flowers and cake all managed by Lisa and Diane and in one location.
Many of our guests commented on the beatiful wedding.
We looked at all of the wedding facilities in Orange County and are extremely pleased we picked the Garden Room. The facilities are excellent but what made the whole wedding perfect was Lisa, Diane and Ricky.
Amanda (the bride) said it was the perfect wedding. I could not agree more.
Dear Garden Room Staff, Thank you so much for all the time and effort you put into making our wedding reception so special. We greatly appreciate the way you helped us coordinate all of the details of the reception. Without the deadlines, information packet and checklist we would have been overwhelmed by the details and unable to enjoy the engagement as much as we did. Thank you also for your attention to detail. From the flowers to the food to the cake and the tables/table centerpieces everything was even better than we imagined. Finally, thank you to all the staff who worked at the reception. We felt pampered the whole time and we could relax because we knew the guests were well taken care of. The professional appearance and demeanor of the staff was also greatly appreciated by us and our guests. We enjoyed the reception and recieved so many compliments from our guests that we will definitely recommend the Garden Room without reservation. Thanks again for making our reception memorable. You helped add the "happy" to our "happily ever after". -Patrick and Karen married 6/14/08
My wedding was absolutely amazing!!! Everything worked out perfectly! I did not have to worry about one thing on my wedding day, there was no mishaps everything went perfect and smooth. This is all due thanks to KIM. She is absolutely wonderful!! I can not praise her enough! She single handedly made my experience PERFECT! I love the Garden Room and would highly recommend it to anyone and everyone. Affordable price, absolutely beautiful inside, worry and hassle free, great food! Amazing staff! They even made sure we got a plate of appetizers since we were busy out taking pictures. They served us at our head table everything was set up beautiful. I just can not say enough they are the PERFECT wedding venue! Thank you for making my special day simply perfect!! Love you guys!!
I too was skeptical after searching for directions I came across the negative reviews. However, after watching the staff and especially the coordinator, Kim, I was thoroughly impressed with the entire execution of the entire event. I even told one of the staff members how well the wedding and reception went in the ladies restroom and how skeptical I was after seeing the reviews. Exceptional food, excellant service and the place was beautiful. Staff was polite and efficient and friendly. I would definately recommend this establishment to family and friends.
It has been a good experience as of now. They have been very friendly and helpful. They have answered all of our questions and never hesitate to help. The owner has gone out of her way to answer my questions on the day the facility is closed....I will let you know after this Saturday!
Makes me wish I was getting Married...: My good friend just got married over the weekend at the Garden Room, Garden Grove, CA. and we all had a fantastic time. It was all very well organized, good food & beverages, wonderful staff, and a very nice facility. You don't have to worry about a thing, just show up and enjoy yourselves. I recommend it very highly.
daughters wedding: My daughter just had her wedding there in may and not only is the place beautiful inside but the assistents there are very nice and very helpful and the food, flowers and cake were great!! They are very organized and everything went off smoothly
