The perfect wedding
By Lucy and John, on 23 May 2018Date of Wedding - 16 Dec 2017
We had the best day of our lives for our Christmas wedding, and our guests absolutely loved it too! Nikki and her team were brilliant. No request was too much trouble, no detail too small. The whole process of planning the wedding was fun and easy with Nikki's help and expertise. The food was absolutely amazing - such fantastic value for money and guests commented on how luxurious everything was - many said it was the best food and wine they had ever had at a wedding. We have absolutely no regrets and wish we could do it all again! If you are looking for an upmarket central London venue without a crazy price tag then look no further. Thank you Nikki and all the team at Chiswell Street Dining Rooms - you absolutely made our day.

The team at Chiswell street Dining room really went above and beyond to ensure the day went smoothly. Of course it is their job but I really do think they went above and beyond (especially Nikki - events coordinator).
They made the whole day so easy and pain free and can honestly say we could not have asked for any more support from Nikki or the staff.
Thank you so much again for making our day so perfect.
The Most Amazing Day
By Carly and Dwight Hosler, on 16 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 16 Sep 2017
A huge thank you for all your hard work in making sure our big day ran smoothly, it was simply the best day ever!
Everything from the venue, staff, food, just everything was perfect, it really was a fantastic day :)
The food went down a treat with so many people commenting on how delicious it was, and the staff were fab.
We honestly had the most amazing day and would not hesitate in recommending the Montcalm and Chiswell Street Dining Rooms as a venue.
Seamless, enjoyable and stress free
By Jennie and Jon Bowles, on 16 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 26 Nov 2016
Thank you so SO much for everything - to you and to the whole team.
Where the whole 'wedding organisation' experience seems very daunting and stressful at first, you truly made it a seamless, enjoyable and stress-free time. We can never thank you enough!
The comments that we have had from all of our guests about the food, drinks and venue have been incredible and more than anything, so many people have commented about how friendly and professional all the staff and service was and that nothing was too much to ask to any of anyone. That is all that we could want for our wedding - especially when so many people came such a long way to experience the day with us. Please pass on our thanks to all of the team.
Every single minute was perfect
By Casey and Henry Scott, on 16 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 06 Aug 2016
We cannot begin to thank you enough for how special you made our day! Every single minute was perfect and it's only thanks to you and your colleagues at CSDR. I can honestly say it was a five star service from every detail of planning the wedding to the way you all packed up our decorations at the end and said goodbye to us.
What a fantastic day!

My partner Carlito and I were looking for an up market venue to hold our wedding celebration at and we were so lucky to find the gem that we did.From the word go Gemma and her team at The Chiswell Street Dining Rooms were a real pleasure to deal with. Nothing was too much trouble. All of the things that could be stressful like menus and seating plans were handled brilliantly. The tastings were fun and enjoyable and we were really happy with our choices.
On the day itself the service was amazing, everyone was eating at the same time, which is an achievement when serving 60 guests.The feed back from all of the guests was very complimentary and some are booking other functions there on the strength of their experience.
Great Venue.Great Food. Great Staff.
Thank you Gemma and the Team.

Chiswell St Dining Rooms proved to be the perfect venue for my son and daughter-in-law's wedding on July 13th. There were about 70 wedding guests for dinner plus a smattering of small children.
On arrival from the church we were received into the stylish bar area for champagne and canapes.
The dining area was beautifully decorated and comfortably accommodated guests on tables of 8. The children had their own area at the end of the dining room.
We selected the menu and wines at a tasting session a month before the wedding. Both the quality of the meal and the service were first class.The service was well managed, slick, and friendly all the way through.We were allocated a separate, spacious room for the post-dinner cake-cutting ceremony and the bar which ran into the small hours. Additional guests arrived at this point, boosting the numbers to well over 100.The arrangement was for us to organise and decorate the room the evening before the wedding. With a few willing helpers the room was transformed and looked wonderful on the day. There was good access to the courtyard which provided a congenial opportunity to take in some fresh air. The courtyard forms part of the Montcalm Hotel which adjoins the dining rooms and, I believe, is only available for wedding parties if there are no competing activities taking place in the hotel.
We also had a cellar room allocated for dancing which provided the atmosphere of a night club.
Overall, we were very pleased with every aspect of the facilities and service provided by Chiswell t Dining Rooms. In particular the planning of the wedding which was done with Gemma Brown was faultless. We also felt that we got value for money.I would strongly recommend it for weddings of this size.
First Class Service, Food and Drink
By Louise Guiliano, on 29 Apr 2013
We held our UK party for our wedding here after getting married abroad. The team were great in the planning before hand and on the night delivered first class service, food and drink. This was great value for money. All the guests commented on what a great location and venue. They also commented that the waiting staff were attentive and approached you at the right time. It was all going on around you but you did not feel that they were in your way at anyone time. We would thoroughly recommend this venue to anyone.
Truly excellent wedding venue
By Simon O'Brien, on 02 Mar 2013
We had our wedding back in November 2012, and had the most wonderful time at Chiswell Street. The venue was immaculate, the staff attentive and quick to attend to each and every need from our wedding party. And without doubt, the food was absolutely superb. Like others, we had a specific budget to work against and Chiswell's reasonable minimum spend meant we could go far as as we liked without breaking the bank! This process was aided by the marvellous Gemma who helped us put things together.
The venue gave us the run of the dining area, a secondary 'chill out' zone + a downstairs area for music and fun. And, every one of our guests were impressed and all said they would like to return for a meal there at some point.
Fully recommended for 5 star treatment at a wholly reasonable price.

Our daughter had her reception at the Chiswell Street Dining Rooms in early February 2013.
The venue, food and service was excellent.
It was also great value.
The minimum spend approach meant our daughter could decide on how she spent her budget and management were flexible in meeting her requests.
Compared to the many other venues we looked at the drinks were very reasonably priced and the house wines were excellent.
We all had a great time!
Urban Chic City Venue
By Nadine Margolis, on 06 Sep 2012
After searching for a long time to find a venue to hold our wedding reception, my husband and I decided on Chiswell Street Dining Room at The Montcalm London City as it was close to where our ceremony was being held. It immediately ticked all the boxes for us as we had always imagined having an urban city wedding. On the day, the venue was a dream - the food, wine and service were faultless with our guests raving about it all night long. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect setting for our wedding with the courtyard offering us a fabulous backdrop for photographs.
Friends and families are still talking about it!
By Tanya Mellor, on 10 Aug 2012
We just wanted to write to thank everyone at Chiswell Street Dining Rooms again for all the work that you put in to hosting our wedding reception. From the first time we visited the Dining Rooms to speak with you we knew that it was the perfect place for our wedding. It's such an attractive venue, and the meal we had that evening was really special. In our subsequent visits to meet with you and your team we were grateful for all of the planning assistance that you gave us, and our visit to sample dishes and wines to choose our menu was one of the most fun afternoons we've ever had!
On the big day everything went so smoothly, the room looked lovely and the service was excellent. All of the food and wine was superb - Richard did a great job with the suckling pigs and a special mention must go to Boyne for the excellent job he did with the cake decorations and cupcakes (our vegan friends were particularly impressed with their vegan friendly cupcakes!).
We're honoured that we were able to be the first wedding that the Dining Rooms hosted, but we're sure that there will be many more special days for others. It's been a couple of months since our big day and our friends and families are still talking about how great the reception was, and we couldn't have asked for more than that!
