"Wow - working with Lilly at The Phoenix for our son's rehearsal dinner was a wonderful experience from start to finish!! Lilly was a true pro in helping me select the beautiful room and delicious menu!! She and her staff provided us with fabulous service the night of our dinner and gave us a great personal touch throughout the magical evening!! I highly recommend hosting your special event at The Phoenix and working with Lilly!!"       -Janet E.


"Lilly was so wonderful to work with at The Phoenix. She was prompt at answering all of our questions throughout the year of wedding planning and happy to meet us at the venue with a short notice. On wedding day she made sure my husband and I had alone time (and ate dinner!) and even carried my dress for me throughout the night. She was so easy to work with, accommodating and even met us on her off days to work with our schedule. Lilly was also able to rope in our large bridal party! We had endless compliments on the food and how beautiful our venue was. I highly recommend this venue and wedding planner!"               -Morgan E.

"We had our rehearsal dinner at The Phoenix and it was such a lovely night! The building was a Jewish Men's Club in the late 1800s and 1900s and it is gorgeous! Lilly was able to give us a backstory of the building when we toured it and she was helpful throughout the entire process of picking the space and the meal. We actually got upgraded to a bigger space when no one else rented it! At the end of the night, Lilly gave us a bottle of champagne and 2 glasses to celebrate. Definitely recommend!"      -Kaitlin S.

We LOVED working with the Phoenix and Abby! The venue was flexible, the food was fantastic and everything was gorgeous. From start to finish I can’t imagine working with anyone else."      -Molly S.


"Abby R and the whole team at The Phoenix took great care of us in executing our wedding. We happened to book The Phoenix right before the pandemic shutdowns in March of 2020, and Abby took such good care to communicate and update us about our options. We are so grateful that we were able to proceed with our planned date in July 2021, and the staff did an incredible job making sure we had everything we needed to make it happen. From the planning stages all the way to cleanup at the end of the night, the process was just what you'd hope for as a bride. Not to mention, the food was absolutely delicious and we got tons of compliments from our guests. Don't walk, RUN to book The Phoenix for your dream Cincinnati wedding!"      -Sarah K.

"Abby and her team at the Phoenix helped plan and deliver an absolutely gorgeous bridal shower for my sister in law. From our first tour of the stunning historic venue to being available for multiple calls, menu and floorplan revisions, and early load in of event props the week before, the team was incredibly communicative, flexible and accessible. Day of, event captain Jenna and the entire team was so on point for every detail to make the day a success. The food was absolutely high end and fantastic, both in presentation and taste. The space was set up according to spec (they even provided chargers at no additional charge and sent me multiple place setting options to choose from the day before). The mother of the bride is so pleased to be getting countless emails, texts, and notes about what a fantastic day it was. If you want your event, large or small, to feel like the only one this A-team is planning, you will not be disappointed in choosing the Phoenix. I selected this venue after experiencing a wonderful rehearsal dinner here, and I am so very glad we did. The Phoenix does not disappoint from first impressions with the gorgeous, dramatic staircase to impeccable service on the big day, going above and beyond to make the entire event perfect and planning process so incredibly easy. Thank you THANK YOU for such a wonderful time! Can’t wait for the next one!"      -Shannon R.


"The Phoenix is the absolute best. We only did two tastings when choosing a caterer for our wedding, and the second tasting was really just to confirm how good The Phoenix is. The food served at our wedding was incredible (dinner was spring vegetable risotto or filet mignon). Our guests raved about the quality of the food and how well the filet was cooked. The food was several notches above what you think of as typical wedding food. We worked with several people at The Phoenix, and everyone was so nice and accommodating. Lilly especially did a wonderful job coordinating our event and was extremely flexible during the planning stages. Cannot speak highly enough of The Phoenix!"    -Kerry B.


"We had such a great experience at the Phoenix. We initially planned to have our rehearsal dinner at the Phoenix, but as a result of Covid-19, we ended up moving our event to this location. Lilly was so incredibly accommodating and worked with us to ensure it was still a fantastic day, despite having to significantly reduce our headcount. Leading up to the day, Lilly and her team were extremely responsive and answered all our questions. They gave us great advice on how to navigate a smaller wedding and met with us multiple times as we tried to map out what the event would entail. The day of the wedding, the staff at the Phoenix were so professional and made it such a special day. Not only that, but the food was incredible and it was such a cozy/beautiful. I cannot recommend the Phoenix more!!"       -Julia L.


"Our guests are still talking about our wedding! We got married on 10/9 and had both the ceremony and reception at The Phoenix. Our event ran so smoothly and our guests loved that we only had one location to cut down on travel. The Phoenix accommodated every request, the space was stunning, and the food was delicious. We loved our experience with The Phoenix and think you will as well!"      -Carrie H.


"We cannot recommend The Phoenix enough! We had our wedding in 2020, which was anything but easy, but Abby and the rest of The Phoenix staff did an outstanding job helping us have the most magical day. They were there every step of the way to make sure our needs were met with both timely and professional communication. We had several meetings and phone calls which made the wedding day itself stress-free and enjoyable because everything was precisely planned with the help of Abby. Not only did we receive endless compliments on the appearance of the venue, but our guests also raved about the food and the service staff. Everyone was accommodated with politeness and outstanding service. We also really appreciated how inclusive the wedding packages were which made planning so much easier. Overall the day simply could not have gone better and we attribute the majority of that to The Phoenix staff for making our vision come to life."      -Ashli L. 


"What a find! As parents of the groom, we wanted a special place to host the rehearsal dinner. The Phoenix exceeded all expectations! We're from Chicago so relied on others' recommendations and I'm so glad we did. The staff at the Phoenix, led by Lilly Klein, was so helpful as we planned, deferred (Covid) and replanned our event. They were thoughtful, caring, and extremely flexible. And our guests could not stop raving about the food! All details were handled without a hitch. Thanks to Lilly and her team! You can't go wrong with the Phoenix!"       -Janet R.


"We had the rehearsal dinner for our son at the Phoenix and couldn’t have been more pleased. Lilly was always pleasant and reassuring to work with and so helpful with advice. She structured the dinner so that we got the best in terms of dinner entrees and beverages without going over our budget. We were from out of town so were at such a disadvantage but everyone at the Phoenix treated us like we were old friends. They were outstanding."       -Catherine L.


"What an amazing reception at The Phoenix! Lilly made sure my now-husband and I had whatever we needed. She also was amazing at checking with the vendors the week before, which took a lot of stress off of me, We took photos in the amazing entryway and they are amazing. We got so many compliments on the food. Our late night snack was coneys and what a highlight that was for all the guests. Even people who are not from Cincinnati loved them. The Phoenix made my day stress-free so that I could focus on actually getting married."       -Victoria K.
