We had our wedding reception at Salsa Bar and Grill and we could have been happier with everything. Salsa has always been a favorite restaurant for us so that made the initial decision easier. However what made everything so perfect was how easy the staff made it for us. We had a small wedding so only took half the restaurant. Salsa arranged for a curtain to be hung to separate us from the rest of the restaurant, giving us a private feel but also being open to the street view. I have a number of friends who keep telling everyone it was the best wedding they have been to and when I ask why a big part of it was the reception, selection and quality of food and the exceptional service from the staff. Thanks for making our special day such a great event!

AMAZING! Salsa bar went above and beyond anything I could have imagined. Shortly before our wedding we had a huge family tragedy and nearly had to postpone our wedding. The staff upon hearing our news were nothing but accomodating. Our wedding thank goodness went ahead and I could not have been happier. The food was incredible, all the guests commented about how amazing it was. But probably the stand out from all of our guests and myself (apart from the food) was the service and their attention to detail. I had some of my guests come up to me the following day and let me know that their waitress was finishing her shift for the evening and came over to the table to thank them for being wonderful and wish them all the best for the evening and even introduce the staff member who would be taking over. How incredible!!!

These guys were fantastic. Venue looked fabulous, staff were polite and very accommodating, food was, according to our guests, "the best they have ever had at a wedding". They even let us break plates (greek thing) and cleaned it all up! They allowed us to bring our own champagne with a very reasonable corkage price which saved us a lot of cash, and in the lead up to the day they were more than happy for us to pop in and ask questions and leave things for them to set up. It was a perfect night and our guests haven't stop saying that it is the best wedding they have ever been to, and much thanks to these guys. legends. so happy!

From start to finish, Rhys and his team took the stress out of planning our reception. Nothing was a problem and they even assisted in working with the florist, cake maker etc. The food was exceptional, service friendly and professional and the setting was perfect. Thank you Salsa for an awesome wedding reception!
