I'm not one to sit down and write a review but I believe in "paying it forward" and this is my way of doing so for "Crystal Light Banquets." On October 30, 2011 we had my daughter's Bridal shower at Crystal light. We've never been there before or had any prior functions but we will DEFINITELY and HIGHLY recommend Crystal Light Banquets and will definitely be using their facilities in the future!
Let me start by saying that Crystal Light is not only a beautiful building with PLENTY of parking space but it's SO ELEGANT and SO CLEAN!! From the time you open the door and enter to a Cathedral ceiling with a gorgeous chandelier and beautiful drapes on it's 2 story window. It just takes your breath away and I'm not even in the doors yet!
The room is HUGE and the seating isn't all bunched together and uncomfortable (especially if you're a bigger person) There's plenty of space for elbow room and the dance floor is Huge!! They have beautiful white netting swagged over the dance floor with white lights in the netting. Breathtakingly beautiful!! The wood dance floor is gleaming and the carpeting and decor are just beautiful. The staff is wonderful to work with and they make certain that ALL your needs and desires are taken care of. The table cloths and chair coverings are beautiful and if you're not having chair coverings, the chairs are heavily padded and comfortable and a very pretty color too. The centerpieces are Gorgeous!! You have a couple to choose from if you didn't care to use your own (and some people don't or can't afford it) Rest assured, you'll LOVE their centerpieces!
The food? The food is beyond delicious! We actually got to sample the food before deciding on having my daughter's shower there. They were very generous with the portions of food they gave us and there isn't anything that we tasted that wasn't superior to the taste buds and we had "3" tasters in my family!' The chicken was juicy and cooked to perfection. The mostocolli and italian sausage were soooo good. Loved the whipped potatoes, the soup (cream of chicken) had hearty pieces of chicken in it and the salad dressings were very tasty. Bread/rolls were warm and soft and smelled just like fresh bakery bread. All I can say is there is NOTHING you can get from this place that isn't absolutely delicious!! They set everything up so elegantly and when I arrived I started taking pictures of the room before the guests arrived. It was just so beautiful. The bathrooms are CLEAN and they smell good ( a prerequisit of my daughter) and all food is made on the premises by one hell of a damn good cook!! Kudo's to the chef!! The pastries we opted for in place of ice cream were delicious!! Cheesecake, brownies and Kolachky!! EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT!! I always say, Good place, Good food, good people and good music. How can you go wrong? And with "Crystal Light Banquets"....YOU CAN'T GO WRONG!! No matter what your event you can TRUST THEM to make it unforgettable and Perfect!
This is my way of Thanking them for making my daughter's Bridal shower absolutely Perfect in every way possible!!
TWO THUMBS UP and if I had more hands, those thumbs would be up as well. If I didn't book the hall 2 years ago for my daughter's wedding, I'd be having it at Crystal Light banquets!!
Thank you Crystal Light Banquets and to your entire staff for making my only daughter's Bridal shower so elegant and Perfect in every way!!
