Great!!!    posted 11/12/2012

River crest was amazing for our wedding reception. Their staff was professional, polite and hard working. We were able to decorate the hall the day before, the asked for the name and contacts of all our vendors to be sure everything was taken care of. The food was amazing. All in all I highly recommend them.

Wonderful Wedding    posted 10/27/2012

From the first time we went to look at the place until the last minute of our wedding this was a perfect experience. Nino (the manager and coordinator) was very organized, friendly, and accommodating to all of our needs and requests. The prices are very fair and you don't have to upgrade to an entire new package if you want a few things changed here and there. The food was great, the bar tenders were fast and poured delicious drinks. Overall this was a great wedding venue!

Hall Rental    posted 10/23/2012

I searched places on line and found this place, it was in the middle for not the cheapest but not the most expensive and the price per person was a good price for buffet and open bar. It was the best place for wanting to have a wedding but cannot afford 10,000 just for hall rental. All the people were awesome and so nice and helpful. anytime i had a question i always got to talk to someone. my overall experience there was amazing!! the food was great! I would occasionally hear from a friend or someone that went to a wedding there, before i got married, or had a party there that the food was good and all the people were great and they were! i would recommend this place to everyone i know!

Hosted a wonderful wedding!    posted 9/4/2012

We had our wedding and reception at River Crest on August 3rd and couldn't be happier with the event. We have received nothing but wonderful comments and feedback after the event from our guests. The ceremony, hall, and food where all above my expectations.
One of our guests noted that his niece had recently gotten married and spent far more then we did and had no where near as nice of a wedding as ours.
Nino and his staff where accommodating to our needs and Mary helped alleviate the stress of the day helping things flow smoothly.
I can't thank them enough for helping to make our wedding a day we'll never forget.

Great facility, food & service!    posted 8/28/2012

This is a great place to have your reception. We had about 160 people and it was perfect. We were able to have our ceremony outside on the grounds and it was beautiful. At night, there were lights that lit up the tree and my photographer got some great pics. I received many compliments on the food. Nino & Rebecca were awesome and always promptly answered all of my questions. They are very accomodating.

Nino and his crew are awesome!    posted 10/14/2011

Our experience with River Crest was all around perfect! From the first time I met with them while I was still shopping around for a venue, til the end of the reception, their staff was very, very nice. They're more accommodating than I could have ever expected! Thank you so very much for helping to make such an amazing night for us and our friends and family!

The Best!!    posted 10/6/2011

Wonderful! Nino took the time to answer all of my questions (trust me, I had plenty!) and the service was great! He even went out of his way to make a seperate dinner for my only vegetarian guest (she loved the eggplant parmesan). The food was delicious (try the grilled chicken) and we couldn't have asked for more. :) I recommend River Crest for your wedding!

Excellent!    posted 8/29/2011

Nino and his team at River Crest made our wedding fantastic. They were always helpful and quick to answer our questions throughout the planning process. At the reception, they were always asking if we had everything we needed, making sure we had a full drink in our hands, and that everything went smoothly. The food was wonderful, and everyone keeps telling us how awesome the reception was.

Kieara & Walter Wedding & Reception    posted 8/5/2011

This place was amazing. River Crest comes with everything (centerpieces, color napkins, and etc)! All I had to really do was show up. The food was AMAZING and everyone could not stop talking about it. We got married outside in their garden by the pond and the set up was wonderful. The owner and staff was WONDERFUL and VERY HELPFUL. They worked with me on everything. They made sure that they keep it about making us happy. I would recommend this place to everyone. Not to mention we got ALL OF THIS FOR A GREAT PRICE.

My mom, and future mother in law set up the reception site, and ceremony. We had the ceremony out on the patio, and we got very lucky with the wedding. The scenery made for some amazing photos! it was an amazing night, and the food was even more amazing. We have gotten so many compliments, and our hotel was 1 mile down the road.

Wedding Reception 6/11/11    posted 6/14/2011 (updated 6/20/2011)

If you are looking for an affordable and beautiful location - look no further. Not only is the venue scenic and well maintained, but the staff is 100% there to assist you in everything you need. Nino the manager/owner is readily available and even onsite during your event! We had a worry and stress free planning process with the River Crest. They respond promptly to emails and phone calls. I couldn't have been happier with the reception we had there. The food is incredible! The serving staff is friendly and attentive. This is a gem in Oakland County. Make sure you check it out!

Perfection    posted 12/15/2010

I LOVED having my wedding and reception at River Crest. Nino answered all my "can we do this" questions with "of course!" or "anything's possible." The value was awesome, giving us a discount per person for being on a Friday and in the month of November. My wedding was November 19th and too cold to be outside so they pulled an arch inside and we had the ceremony right on the dance floor. The food was excellent and all my guests were very impressed. The service was great and I loved that the server for the head table went out of her way to call my by my new married name, it was very cute.
My husband and his brother could not figure out how to tighten their tuxedo pants and when they got to River Crest Nino showed them how and they were fixed right up! My husband was so thankful he didn't have to waddle down the aisle!
I HIGHLY recommend River Crest for weddings and will use it again should I have any other banquet needs.

So Beautiful    posted 6/28/2010

We had our ceremony on the patio at River Crest and the reception inside and it was absolutely beautiful. People are still commenting on how great the food was. Nino will help you every step of the way and is so helpful. He gave me a list of perferred vendors and that is how we found our Officiant for the wedding. Would recommend to others!

Review for River Crest    posted 5/10/2010 (updated 5/21/2010)

I loved that we were able to get married outside on the patio. It provieded a very nice backdrop for a beautiful ceremony and nice pictures afterwards. There's a park accross the street that also provided a nice backdrop for pictures. (within walking distance from the venue) My guestes were then able to go directly inside for drinks and a few light appetizers while we did pictures. The food was excellent and they were able to accomidate all the decorating we wanted to do to the room.

seriously!!!    posted 11/2/2013

nino is rude and doesn't know what is going on. he could not tell who the groom was, didn't have the room set up correctly, and was lurking around very creepy. but Rebecca is amazing and knows her stuff. the kitchen is extremely dirty and belongs on kitchen nightmares and wastes too much food.

River Crest was a great venue    posted 8/4/2013

The food was wonderful, the service was fantastic and the room size was more than big enough to fit our party comfortably. Children under 6 ate free and 6 to 12 ate half price. There is an open bar included in the price per plate. The one thing that was a small issue was that their glasses at the bar were a little small. Each of their rooms has a patio area with a beautiful view. I was extremely happy with the venue. There is a memorial park across the street as well, which was a great place to take pictures.

RIVER CREST BANQUET FACILITY    posted 7/24/2013

From the initial booking to the end, we were extremely pleased with Nino and his wonderful staff. We could not have asked for a better, more organized wedding, and our event was a little unusual as my daughter and son-in-law were married by Darth Vadar. The food was simply scrumptious, the waitstaff was marvelous, the venue clean and beautiful. I would highly recommend this venue. Again, we were very happy!!!!!!!!!
