Starting with their events coordinator and ending with their front of house, management, chefs and kitchen staff; Taxi Kitchen were INCREDIBLE! Fine dining has always been important to my husband and I and we certainly gave our wedding guests a wedding menu to remember! Can not recommend highly enough!

We chose Taxi because we love the food, the central location, and the city views at night. It was absolutely amazing for a winter wedding with the whole city lit up in the background. The venue looked fantastic, the food was delicious (guests got to choose their meals from the menu), the wine and drinks were superb. We also loved the central location making it so easy for us and for our guests to get there.
