Venue Testimonials

We absolutely LOVED everything about Portside Events! The planning up to the day was very friendly and personal (one person the whole time). The food was amazing (everyone raved about it), the room looked great, the staff were friendly — we couldn't have asked for anything better!

Shai L.

I had my ceremony and reception at Portside Events. The venue was fantastic. The layout of the ceremony was very well done. The canapés that we had were delicious and the service was flawless. We had 30 guests including ourselves, everyone commented on how well the reception went and how yummy the food was.

The staff working that evening were very efficient and friendly with the events manager going out of his way to ensure the evening ran smoothly.
