Our recent experience in 2023 at Lido Banquets & Events was excellent to say the least. We held our daughter's big birthday celebration with over 180 invited guests. All the planning, setup, and color coordination to match our theme was done expertly and working with Andre and Kasia were pure pleasure. The room was set to our exact specifications and our daughter was stunned. Their food selection is vast and the menu we picked was delicious. Lots of our friends commented on it too. Great bar in a semi private area where you can still enjoy the party but also have a conversation is a very smart layout choice. This place was recently upgraded and remodeled and it is beautiful. It's loaded with the latest visual technology and they even designed custom monograms with our daughter's name and picture that were later displayed on their custom projection system. For everything we received, food, drink, very attentive servers, bartenders we could have easily spent more but Lido Banquets & Events is very moderately priced. Inexpensive for what you get. I highly recommend it to anyone.

Where do I start here? I recently had my wedding reception here at the end of May 2023. Andre and Kasia are absolute class acts. They were very flexible to work with during the planning phase and very accommodating to our work schedule. They absolutely went above and beyond in every way, but I would like to highlight some of the things that really meant a lot to us. 1. We asked to have a reserved spot for a family with an injury to their foot. Andre immediately asked who and coned off a spot for them. 2. A guest called and asked us if it was a possibility that have a vegan meal on the way to the reception. We called Andre and he made sure that he found the guest name and table and ensure their dietary choices were respected. 3. My wife and I had some family members coming from Europe and Andre gave us some menu options for dinner and appetizers to make them feel more at home (which they loved)!

We had our daughter’s Quince here in April of 2023. We are so happy how everything turned out. Andre really listened to all the details I requested and worked with me to help my daughters vision come to life. We choose Lido’s because the things they offer in their packages you can’t get any where else at this price. The food was good too so that is always a plus. The uplighting details, the design of her name with theme on wall, and the the new ceiling lighting, and even added lighting of sweet table skirt of butterflies flying around. You had to be there to be amazed. My guest keep talking about how beautiful it was.
My husband and I had our Daughter’s Quinceañera reception at Lido Banquets & Events on August 7, 2021, and it was absolutely perfect! We worked with Andre, and he made sure everything ran smoothly and was as stress-free as possible. The room was absolutely beautiful, the food was great, and the staff was extremely accommodating. My guests are still telling me how great the food was and how much they loved the venue! I will definitely use Lido Banquets again! Thank you!

This is such a beautiful venue. Elegant, clean and great atmosphere.You can see the attention to detail here… from the parking lot, to the bridal room, to the bar. The bar is modern and offers a great selection of premium liquor. The food is made in house. Andre has been amazing to us and such a big help to my husband and I. Thank you for everything Andre!!! We DEFINITELY recommend Lido Banquets.

Lido Banquets is the place to gather people! Andre is very organized for every detail: from food, pastries, floor planning, decorations, lighting and video/slideshow projections. His staff are very friendly and professional. We used to host our family parties at our house but due to growing size of family, hosting at home is no longer an option and very stressful. My husband and I were looking for a restaurant or banquet that would service us and I found the place online. As promised in the pictures and reviews we signed up and held our daughter’s 1st birthday and baptism party. Originally, supposed a baby shower and my 40th birthday but the pandemic diverted the course. But the wait was not at all disappointing. Lido Banquet did not disappoint! Very neat and clean. Parking lots are a plus, too. My husband and I highly recommends the place.

First I want to thank Andre the owner for everything and his kindness! This place is excellent and great for events. Andre is understanding and kind at all times. He doesn't try to drain you out of your money either. I had my wedding reception here in April of this year and when I walked into the room I was speechless. My husband and I were very pleased with the way everything looked. We were also very pleased with all the great service (beginning to end). The waiters and bartenders were very friendly. The food was great! I didn't hear any complaints from our guest. This place is a must-see and tryout. Excellent place, with excellent service and excellent food. Also, the price is very reasonable!

Our wedding was on June 26, 2021 and it was the best day of our life and we had a blast! Lido Banquets & Events was clean, organized, food was great and everything well served. Andre was professional and I was 100% comfortable with our communication after my husband and I postponed our original wedding date due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I have had dozens of family members call and compliment on how beautiful the hall was and how great the food and service was. Every table was serviced by a very nice and attentive staff, my guests felt good and well taken care of and of that i must thank I would highly recommend this venue for your event!
Working with Andre at Lido banquets couldn't have been better! He is so kind and very professional. He gives you ideas and suggestions! The food was Amazing everyone I have spoken to about the wedding cannot stop talking about how delicious the food was! Andre, Kasia, and The staff was great and attentive!!! I will definitely be holding another event in the future at lido banquets! Not only was it amazing food but it's a great space and affordable!! Thank you so much for helping plan our amazing wedding.
We looked at almost 20 vendors for our April wedding, and we got lucky with Lido Banquets. They had the best price for the best type of meal, and they accommodated so many things for us. First of all, they are located in Gladstone Park (right next to Jefferson Park), on Milwaukee Ave. and we couldn't have picked a better location for us and our guests. The great thing about it was that there is only one ballroom. I was worried about sharing banquets with other wedding parties that night, and this is pretty much what sold me. The second HUGE thing about this banquet was the price. We looked at the menu/package options that was definitely the best pricing in the whole Chicago-Northwest Suburban area. Other great things about Lido, were that they had a bridal suite, a nice looking bar, a huge dance floor, and updated/easy-to-access bathrooms for our older guests, and two parking lots. We booked this banquet about a year before our wedding, and I am so glad we did, because it was definitely worth it! They gave you options colored napkins, LED uplighting throughout, and they even have centerpieces that you can use! They made everything easy

I had my wedding in August of this year and it was everything I ever anticipated!! I was treated with understanding to what exactly I wanted on that day!! I walked into Lido Banquets (never being there ever before) and the first thing I noticed was the wonderful smell in the hall way. Then I was greeted by the owner, Andre and he was very helpful and showed me the entire banquet hall in detail. I asked him a list of questions regarding my expectations and he was able to answer all of them and also made some really great suggestions. I booked my wedding that day. I was also able to come to the Lido after making arrangements with Andre for tasting of the food a few times and that was very helpful for us to decide the type of menu I wanted. The day of our wedding the banquet room was decorated beautifully and the service was perfect. I was reassured that one of the owners would be there to the very end of our reception, and there was. I can definitely say that this is was a wonderful experience!!!!

I just had my wedding here last month. My husband and I worked with Andre the whole time. He did everything to make sure we had a great reception. It's been a month and my extended family members as well as family friends are still raving about the food and the banquet. They said that everyone did a great job and many of our family members who are picky loved the food. I can't rave about them enough! They had a ton of options for everyone. The pricing is extremely reasonable. There is only one banquet room in the whole place so you won't have to worry about another wedding going on at the same time. Definitely check them out! You won't regret it. We didn't.
