“We could not have asked for a better wedding reception. Maggie and Margot were so helpful and attentive during the planning process. The food was to die for – everyone is still telling us how delicious it was. The staff working the reception were willing to go above and beyond.They set up a full meal with all of the food we had picked for the reception in a separate room so that we could eat in peace before getting out on the dance floor. I cannot say enough good things about this place. Look no further for a reception venue! “

Between choosing the menu items, working with our crazy schedule, and guiding us to other great vendors. So many of our guests are STILL talking about the food being the best they’ve ever had!

“Our March 11 wedding at the Terminal was above and beyond what I could have expected. Maggie was such an amazing help when it came to planning. She was so quick to answer all my emails, and there were many! We had both ceremony and reception in the atrium and the staff set up everything for us perfectly. All the little details that I had mentioned were followed to the letter. Our guests can’t stop talking about how amazing the food was and how beautiful the venue is.”

“My daughter’s wedding was perfect. We had the entire bldg. and the ceremony was on the
observation deck with the sunset and perfect weather for October 13th. The walnut room was the perfect place to host the cocktail reception while we were taking pictures. The atrium was beautiful for a reception. Maggie was our wedding planner and is one of the most professional people I have ever dealt with. She made sure this event was perfect. Maggie is organized and extremely friendly and didn’t mind all my calls and emails. She was such a delight to work with… Definitely plan to have more special occasion parties at Messina’s.”

“When I found this venue I fell in love with the art deco space. It was absolutely perfect for
us…Everything was perfect & the food was delicious (I’m still dreaming about the pork belly biscuits & fried chicken sliders).”

“We got married at the Terminal on March 10, 2018. The place was absolutely beautiful and the food was amazing. I got so many compliments on the venue and the food that I can’t count. I highly recommend Messina’s at the terminal if you are looking for something a little bit different with history. The Art Deco decor makes it so special.”

“Not only is this a beautiful venue, but the service and attention given by Maggie and her staff is top notch. They were more than willing to accommodate all of our requests, even though some of our thoughts/ideas were unconventional. From day 1 of meeting Maggie, we felt a certain comfort that Messina’s at the Terminal would just be easy for us, and one less thing we would ever have to stress about or worry about. And we never did- the food was great, the service was great, the venue is super romantic, and everyone had a great time.”

“My husband … and I are overwhelmed with gratitude for our experience with Messina’s Catering. Messina’s provided food and bartending service for our wedding on May 26th, 2018 at the Beauregard-Keyes House in New Orleans. Executive Chef Mark Daniels and Sales Manager Lydia Casler worked tirelessly from the time of our very first contact—I discovered them serendipitously thanks to our venue’s preferred vendor list—through the conclusion of our wedding day. From start to finish, Mark and Lydia provided the highest standard of service and ease of communication, not to mention the incredible food! Mark and Lydia made the process of planning our wedding effortless and straightforward. Both were easy to contact by phone or e-mail and they responded promptly, answering all our questions in detail. Mark helped us design a traditional New Orleans style menu for our buffet dinner that would please both our local Louisiana friends and our out-of-town families from Arizona and Massachusetts, who are largely unfamiliar with southern cuisine…Many of our guests reported that Messina’s was the best wedding food they had ever eaten, some emphasizing that it was the best food they had ever had, period.”

“Stacey Messina and her catering team were so wonderful to work with for our wedding this past May! We worked through phone and email correspondence as this was a destination wedding for us. She worked with our budget and made me feel confident that everything would be beautiful and had some southern flair, and it most certainly did. I was pleasantly surprised that things turned out even better than expected and the service was top notch! Private attendee for the bride and groom, Orestes, wow! I have to recommend the traveling raw bar, our guests were in awe! Thank you, thank you, and thank you for making our day magical. Hire Messina’s, you won’t regret it!!”
