We are so glad we chose Le Challenger to hold our wedding reception. The room was gorgeous, well maintained and very nicely decorated (which makes it much easier to adapt your own wedding decos to the ... Read more room). The staff was so professional, we received so many good comments from our guests about how amazing they got served during the reception. As a bride who did not have a wedding planner, the team at the Challenger helped me keep everything on track and made sure our evening was perfect! I would recommend them to anybody!!! Thank you Joe Russo and your team!!!

The Challenger Reception Hall was one of the best choices of vendors (if not the best) I've made for my wedding! I can't even begin to explain how beautiful and classy this venue is, and on top of it ... Read more all, the service and food are simply impeccable! Joe Russo is very easy to work with and responds to questions and concerns in a very reasonable time. As most of almost newlyweds to be, we were very uncertain and insecure with some details, but the Challenger staff does a great job in reassuring you that you are in good hands! I had friends and family coming from Europe and all over the States, and everyone was simply amazed with the beautiful venue and had NOTHING to complain about when it came to the food! They even asked for a second serving! The cocktail hour and sweet table were some of the best I've ever seen or tasted, everything was fresh and delicious! The service in the bridal suite was also impeccable, as they made sure no one was missing anything and made sure we had lots of the bites served at the cocktail hour! I would recommend this venue to any couple, having visited over 8-9 of them in the Montreal and surrounding area, I am 10000% sure I have picked the best one in all aspects!
