My daughter got married here and I have to say, it was so much more beautiful than I expected. I would not expect other Chicago wedding venues to go all out the way they did to make sure the whole day was perfect for my girl, her new husband, and the family.

We were looking for something a little more classy than common baby shower venues in Chicago, and so we decided to use this company. They were a great option, hosting our fifty person guest list, providing full catering service and staffing, and doing it all for a very affordable price. We will definitely use them the next time we need a venue. More...

I was searching through birthday venues in Chicago to host my husband’s 50th birthday, and I came across this company. I am so glad I did, because their customer service and professionalism exceeded my expectations. They really went above and beyond to be sure every aspect of the event, from food to service, was exactly what we asked for. More...

My family was looking through baby shower venues in Chicago and were lucky enough to find this company. They made our baby shower incredibly special, helping us with everything we need and delivering every step of the way. Give them a look if you need a classy but affordable banquet hall in Chicago.

We had been to a friend's wedding at Lido Banquets last year and we liked the venue and had a good time, so we decided to consider it for our own wedding this year on May 3.We ended up booking the venue because it fit the size of our event and we were happy with the price and other amenities. We also particularly liked the food, which was way better quality than any banquet hall dinner we've had before.When we booked the venue, the new owner said they were doing some renovations ahead of our event and so we expected it to have some updates, but when we saw the makeover we were completely blown away. The entry way was completely renovated from carpet and basically a 90s kind of decor to totally modern marble and stone and had this really cool color changing lighting. It was like walking into the lobby of a boutique hotel downtown. They also added a gorgeous bridal room, which was one thing our friend who got married there last year said would have been really nice to have. I don't know how my wife, then fiance, would have lived without the bridal room to put all of her things in and get ready. The ballroom and bar also had all kinds of new touch ups and refreshes that make the whole vibe of the place fresh and modern.The new owners are super friendly and beyond professional. They understood everything we wanted and knew all the right questions to ask to make sure everything was accounted for and they made us feel confident the event would go off smoothly. On the night of the event, they were able to anticipate everything we needed and took care of every detail. Even when we made some last minute changes to the room arrangement and decorations, Andre was able to accommodate everything with no issues. We had 225 guests, which is not an easy fit without going to a big hotel ballroom, but Lido was a perfect fit!One of the reasons we looked into this venue in the first place was because we liked the food at our friend's wedding so much, so when we found out there were new owners, we wanted to make sure they offered the same menu choices and had the same quality. They said the chef had been there for something like 30 years and nothing had changed in the kitchen. We had a fabulous homestyle meal with mushroom soup, salad with homemade Italian dressing that was ridiculously good, roasted chicken on the bone, and beef that was slowcooked and melted in your mouth. Can't say enough good things about the dinner.We're still hearing about how much fun everybody had and how much they liked the dinner and the venue a month later and we couldn't be more pleased. Highly recommended! More...

We were overwhelmed by the prices and hassles of so many Chicago wedding venues, so we were delighted when we found Lido Banquet Hall and how much easier and affordable it was compared to others. They were able to work with our other vendors easily, made the day of our wedding very stress-free and let us enjoy the celebration, and were friendly and helpful in every step of the process. Give them a look if you are searching for wedding venues in Chicago. More...

I was looking around for baby shower venues around Chicago. My friends and I decided to throw a surprise baby shower for our other friend. I had a lot of suggestions when it comes to the look of the banquet hall and all of them were fulfilled. There was a small mix-up with the centerpieces but the good thing about it was that you guys were able to fix the problem quickly. More...

It has been in a runaround looking for wedding venues in Chicago. It was a relief that a friend of mine referred me to you guys. Your banquet halls are very spacious. The food was scrumptious and there were so many choices provided. The centerpieces looked beautiful as well. Thank you guys for making my dream wedding perfect! More...

I held my daughter's quinceanera in your banquet halls in Chicago and the party was a success! Everything from the preparation to the event itself ran smoothly. The exact appearance of the hall matched each description that my daughter mentioned. She had a great time with her friends. Many of my guests are asking about the food that you've served. You may expect your phone to ring a couple of times! More...

If you’d ever look for the elegant and customized birthday venues in Chicago, this place is surely worth to pay attention to. I chose it for my party and I need to admit that everything was just tailored to my needs. I’m the vegetarian, as well as the majority of my friends, and one of the biggest advantages was the possibility of the menu selection. Highly recommend. More...

I wanted to organize my parents’ marriage anniversary, so I had to start looking for some nice banquet halls in Chicago which would hold all the guests. Finally found this company and its party room, which surprisingly, turned out to be located not that far away from our place! My parents were touched and whole the banquet was prepared in the best possible manner. More...

Our local baseball league was looking for a new venue for our end of season event and this place did a wonderful job of putting our afternoon together in one of the nicest banquet halls in Chicago.

How can I describe Lido's in one word? AMAZING! The manager, Joanna, and the staff in this banquet hall are above and beyond, and provided great service and hospitality for my mother's surprise 60th Birthday back in November 2018. From the planning to the surprise was ran smoothly and no problems at all. The money spent for this banquet is well worth it and the food was delicious, all of my guests enjoyed it especially the addition bar. And the scenery of the room is perfect for a party of 200-250 guests and within the city. I highly highly recommend this place to anyone and enjoy the services they have to offer! More...

Lido was absolutely amazing on Oct 8th. The food was fabulous. Service was top notch too. Dietary meals were individually plated. I heard from recipients of a vegetarian and gluten free meals said nothing but great things about their meals. One person did not get their designated meal. The bride's family apologizes for that happening and any other meal mishaps that happened. But overall the venue was fabulous. Thank you. More...

My friend hired the Lido banquet to cater and host her wedding. The staff was very courteous and the establishment was ran very professionally. I would give the decor a 3 only because I can't stand that typical banquet hall carpet flowers and whatever else is in there. It clashes with the rest of the decor. I would definitely recommend the service and venue to a friend. I find that type of carpet in all banquet halls. More...

Most of the staff were pleasant and professional and the food was tasty. I especially loved the meatballs! Very elegant table settings!The bartender was pretty awesome in remembering what we were drinking! That was fun! It was a great time!
The only suggestion I would have is to place the runner after everyone is seated, immediately before the wedding begins.
Note: I edited my review after learning some things occurred that were outside of the control of Lido's staff.

I had my wedding here. The staff was very nice and helpful. Everything went off without a hitch. The food was excellent. Had many good comments about how delicious the appetizers were. The only issue was there was an event the morning of my wedding and the marquee was never updated to say our names. Didn't realize it until I got the pictures back from the photographer. More...

Nice and somewhat elegant. Be careful when renting to look around for cleaning and dusting cleanest. If you see dusty or cob webs on chandeliers let manager know to clean before your party. When family rented it was kind of rude that instead of telling us in how many minutes to make the last dance or drink call ... they just started telling our guest it was over. Lady bartender was rude yet she was asking for tipping by constantly pointing at the tipping jar. Staff member had a language issue only under stood (I believe) polish. More...

Walked into our wedding and the venue was perfectly decorated. The staff was on it, very friendly and the food was delicious. You get more than your money's worth! I also liked that some guests who came later than the scheduled dinner time were still offered the opportunity to eat! Also that some guest of ours didn't show and they offered to wrap the food up for you to take it home!  We are beyond happy we chose them for our special day! More...

Lido Banquets is the place to go!  My siblings and I just celebrated our parent's 50th Wedding anniversary this past weekend and this place, along with their fabulous staff, was just simply AMAZING!!!!  I had researched and looked at 6 different places, but Lido was the spot I truly loved.  It only has one banquet space and you dont have to worry about sharing it with another party.  Plenty of parking, etc.  The food was delicious - the guests wouldnt stop raving about the place, the food, the staff, etc.  I would definitely have another party here.  Joanna and the staff were there for everything - I don't have anything to complain about.  Joanna, thank you again, for making my parent's celebration that much more special!!!!!!

I Recently had my bridal shower at lido banquets. From the beginning Joanna was a pleasure to work with. She always answered our questions and was there to help out with our selections whether it was food, sweets or decorations. Overall, the decorations were wonderful, the banquet was clean, the waitresses and waiters were courteous and the food was fresh and delicious. I am so glad that we gave Lido Banquets a shot as it was a great shower! Without a doubt lido banquets will always be my choice for future parties! More...

I am writing to express my extreme satisfaction with the an event we recently held at Lido Banquets. We had a retirement celebration for my mother. Thanks to Joanna for her attention to detail and professionalism throughout the entire planning process. We have been planning this for almost a year. Joanna was kind, pleasant, and patient throughout. She answered all of our questions and was incredibly courteous every single time we called / met with her (Note: we called several times, as we had three siblings planning the celebration, and we all had questions). She helped coordinate everything from the cake, to the gift table and even the beautiful sign outdoors, which read "Retiring in Style." As for the night of, we were blessed to have Peter seamlessly coordinate every single detail. He was professional, pleasant, and focused. You can tell he has a great passion for the work he does! Peter went above and beyond in every single way. When we first arrived, I brought fresh flowers to adorn the cake, but was not sure how to go about it (I didn't want to add them on there myself and risk ruining the cake). I saw Peter and handed him the flowers. He personally decorated the cake, and they looked beautiful!  Within a matter of minutes, he had made an elaborate design with the roses, and made an artistic craft out of the cake - absolutely PERFECT! Peter was poised and present throughout the evening, easy to find (in case we had questions, etc.), and was careful not to hover. He communicated with me throughout the evening, and was kind enough to make suggestions, such as pushing dinner back 15 minutes in order to allow more guests to arrive. He personally found an extra microphone for our DJ. Peter also took the time to make sure we had taken pictures with the cake before cutting and serving it to our guests.  His entire team of servers and the bartender were equally attentive and cheerful. The food was delicious - we had several guests mention how great it was! Thank you Lido Banquets, for providing an evening to remember. And for beautifully coordinating such an elaborate event!  We greatly appreciate Peter, Joanna, and their entire team! We will definitely reach out to Lido Banquets for any banquets we host in the future, for many years to come. More...

We looked at almost 20 vendors for our April 2016 wedding, and we got lucky with Lido Banquets. They're actually partnered with Manzo's Banquets in Des Plaines, and we went with Lido, since it was more affordable for us.Lido 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 Jefferson Park, right on Milwaukee, 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 banquet room. I was worried about sharing banquets with other wedding parties, and this is pretty much what sold me. The second HUGE thing about this banquet was the price. We looked at the menu options, and the Manager, Joanna, said we could either do Individual Plates, or Family Style, which is the same price......WAIT WHAAAAT? that was definitely the best menu pricing in the whole Chicago-Northwest Suburban area. Other great things about Lido, were that they had a bridal suite/coat check (whichever one you wanted to use it as), a nice looking bar, a huge dance floor, and updated/easy-to-access bathrooms for our older guests. The tasting process was a bit unique, since they are only able to give you tastings when they have parties, but it makes sense, since they don't have a restaurant part, and they are mainly a banquet for special occasions.We booked this banquet about a year before our wedding, and I am so glad we did, because it was definitely worth it! I remember that my husband and I stopped looking after we found Lido Banquets. They give you options of chair covers, colored napkins, uplighting, and they even have centerpieces that you can use! They made everything easy, and we are so happy we found Lido!!! Our wedding was amazing, thanks to Joanna and the staff, and our guests kept telling us that they loved the food!If we have another big party, my husband and I will definitely come back and book with Lido...they really take care of you and I hope they stay in business for many years to come!

I was very impressed on how lido handled my wedding reception 1 month ago! The food was amazing, the staff were helpful, and not one of our guests left unhappy.

The decorations were beautiful and the pricing was very reasonable. More...

We absolutely loved this banquet. We had our wedding reception here on Feb 6th 2016 and our guests were raving about how good the food was. They thought that Joanna our banquet manager did a great job. The hall was beautifully decorated, we had family style food, and open bar. The cake was included in the price. They had the best pricing and they were close to the church we got married at. This banquet hall only has one reception room for the whole place which is awesome because we didn't have to worry about another party being too loud or people getting confused between rooms.

Ive lived down the street from the lido for 14 years so when i got my invite to go here it was a no brainer i would just see it as passing by it but when i arrived i was blown away with size of the space and how nice it looks inside the staff WOW they where on point all night right up to midnight and we got there at 5pm some places the staff disappear after the food is handed out they brought the food asked if we needed more  or anything the bartender was great at times he was  swamped but he handled it all with a smile every single employee from management to waitresses where very very attentive and outgoing and respectful and professional the food was good hot and large portions glad i got a chance to come here great memories and i was only a guest not the bride and groom

We had our wedding reception at Lido's on 10/19/2013.  We couldn't have been more pleased with the venue and would definitely recommend them.  Peter, the owner, was so nice to work with and very accommodating.  The prices were very reasonable. The service  was excellent.  The food was very good (we did family style).  We had a great experience with the bakery that they worked with (and some delicious cake).  The room is a typical banquet hall style...it is very beautiful and was the perfect size/set up for us.   Our guests stayed at the O'Hare Courtyard by Marriott, which we were also really pleased with, which included free shuttle to/from.  Our guests had only positive things to say about the food and their experience there.

We recently held our wedding reception for 180 guests at The Lido and were happy with our choice. Before booking we visited about a dozen banquet halls and restaurants in our moderate price range, and The Lido was the nicest looking one in terms of layout, drapes, carpeting, etc. The tables, chairs, and centerpieces all were beautiful on our big day. Joanna, the manager, did an excellent job of presenting to us all the options and choices and then actually staging the event. She was also firm but fair in terms of negotiating with us on prices. About half our guests were of Polish heritage so we selected one of the Polish menu packages. From the feedback I received, everybody enjoyed the food and drink and was satisfied with the wait staff and bartenders. Parking was plentiful, and The Lido provided a coat check service. More...

We were an out of town couple so all of our decisions were based on email/phone calls (and 1 visit by my now husband). I had done my research and found 2 venues that I thought would be perfect for us, my husband was in Chicago for business and I told him go see each place and let me know which one you like better. He came back and said that without a doubt Lido was the place for us! We were on a budget as we were paying for everything ourselves and it was important that we included an open bar in our package. Lido does a great job of working with you and they don't try to nickel and dime you! The prices are great and the service is even better, we loved the family style meal - it helped cut down on our cost and it was great for our guests, they even gave the tables seconds if they wanted it! What other venue does that!!!! They worked with our DJ and my mom who came in a bit early to set up our decorations. Everyone there was so nice and really worked to make our wedding reception special. My guests all raved about the bartenders and their amazing service!!! I would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a great place to host a reception!!! More...

Peter made sure the service for our wedding and reception was absolutely fabulous. I really appreciated all of the detailed attention that the staff provided to the wedding party as well as our guests. There was a winter storm the day of our wedding and the staff made our guests feel safe and provided us with impeccable service. I would definitely recommend Lido's Banquets to our friends.

My wife and I recently had our reception here.  It was pretty solid reception.  We were on a budget, and to be honest, this place gives you the best bang for your buck in the Chicago-land area.  Furthermore, Peter (the owner) is really easy to work with and very accommodating.We really appreciated the flexibility of not locking in our count to him until a week before the wedding!  We also had an OK food tasting, but the day of the wedding... the food was really great (not sure what changed, but it was 100 times better).  We did have some issues with their bakery where they outsource the cake.  Peter was very apologetic for the way Sugar Hill Bakery was mistreating us, but nothing came out of it (i.e. no acknowledgement/apology from the bakery).  This is the only reason I am not giving Lido's 5-stars.Overall, a really solid establishment.  It really hit our sweet spot on budget, food, service, and accommodation.  Would recommend you put this on your list to check it out!

We had our wedding reception at Lido and could not have been more pleased. Peter was always attentive, helpful and patient. He was at the reception the entire night to oversee the whole thing and took care of absolutely everything! The entire staff (servers and bar tenders) were very polite and attentive as well. The food was great (we got several positive comments from our guests) and was exactly what we expected. We even had a few people who showed up without an rsvp and the staff set up a table and had food to serve in no time. Our entire experience here was great. I highly recommend working with Peter because you can tell he cares about his business and his priority is to make your night the best it can be! More...

This banquet hall is worth every penny. My wedding was on 5/19/2012 and i still have some guest talking about how good the food and service was! And how beautiful the hall was decorated.I worked with Peter and he just went above and beyond. He makes you feel like you are the only wedding or event that he has. The day of the wedding, the bar tenders were so much fun and extreamly sweet! I was told by some guests that the servers were like nothing they have ever experienced at a wedding before, because they were always available and very nice. The server I had for the head table was always around when i needed her and she was also so very sweet. I am so happy that i had my wedding reception at the Lido banquets. Great food, amazing service, and a beautiful hall. More...

First I want to thank Peter the owner for everything and his kindness! This place is excellent and great for events. Peter 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 please with the way ever thing looked. We were also very pleased with all the great service (beginning to end). Waiters and bartenders were very friendly. The food was great! I didn't hear any complains from our guest. This place is a must see and try out. Excellent place, excellent service and excellent food. Also, the price is very reasonable!

We recently (September) celebrated our daughters Quinceanera at the Lido and we could not have been more happy and pleased with service, attention to detail and overall treatment by Peter and his staff at the Lido.  From the day we went to look at the hall, we were treated so well and Peter answered every single question we could think of.  The Lido was so accommodating that they even let us use the hall for an hour the day before the event so that our daughter could practice her dances.  The Lido itself is a very elegant place to hold you event.  The food is phenomenal.  I read a previous post of someone saying the food was bad, which completely not true.  We have three chefs in our family from around the country who attended the event and all said the food was great.  The overall cost of the event for about 150 people was very reasonable for a five hour (4 hour open bar) reception, and trust me, we researched pretty much everything on the North side of Chicago and the Lido beat them all.In closing, I highly recommend the Lido.  You can trust that you will be in good hands with Peter and his staff.  Everyone of his staff, from the bartender to the hostess giving your guests a glass of champagne as they come in (classy touch by the way) was all smiles the day of the event, which made everyone feel welcome.  Tons of free parking in private lots and the location is so easy to get to from anywhere in the city.  Peter, thank you so much for making our special day so memorable.- Luis More...

I had my wedding reception at the Lido this past August and my husband and I are extremely happy that we choose this banquet facility. We were treated from the very start with understanding of how exactly we wanted our wedding to look. The owner was able to provide us with suggestions and assist us in any questions we may of had. We were looking to have an elegant but yet not an over expensive wedding and that is EXACTLY what we had. The food was AMAZING and the service was very attentive. The room was decorated beautifully for our event and all of our guests were complimenting us on our choice. I was able to communicate with the owner prior to the wedding and then his wife during our wedding reception, we never felt unattended!!!! I would definately choose Lido banquets again, and again!!!

Our wedding party was small and Lido banquets was very close to us so we decided to have our wedding there. Everything was great. We expected a little bit more from the venue concerning the service and the choice of food, but overall everything was fine. More...

Great banquet hall for virtually any venue. I booked the Lido Banquest for my wedding back in September. The great perk is their manu. Everything is high quality but still affordable.

Awesome venue.  The staff and service was GREAT!!!  I would highly recommend this banquet hall, I have only the best things to say.  We had approximately 200 guests and it seated everyone perfectly.  The following day all of our families were calling us to tell us how they like the hall, how nice and professional it looked, and how TASTY the food was.  Peter, the manager, was very very helpful in helping us from the very beginning.  I would gladly come back to LIDO if I ever need to throw any other parties.

I had the pleasant expierence of having my wedding reception at the Lido and i have to say that all of my expectations were completely met. I was reasured by the mgr./owner that I would not be disappointed w/the food and the way the banquet room was set up for my special day. The food was very tastey and the waiters and waiteress were friendly and accomodating to me and my husband. I would refer the Lido to anyone at anytime for any occasion. More...

I can't be any more happy that we went with Lido. Lido is a Polish banquet hall known for great service and amazing food and boy oh boy did they deliver! From the time we met Peter, the owner, we knew we were in good hands. He was knowledgable, accomodating, helpful and always available to answer any questions we had. We made our own package that included, champage greeting, hor doeurves, linens, chair sashes, silverware, sweet table, cake, 7 course dinner, late night snack, wine on all tables and open bar. Peter called me the week of the wedding to confirm the cake, menu and guest count. We went and dropped some boxes off for set up. Peter said they can set up whatever we want. I had some linens I bought, and of course all the decor. By the time DOC got to reception Lido did all the set ups including centerpieces in an effort to help my aunt the florist make the ceremony on time. Everything looked beautiful and just the way I wanted it to look. With DOC's supervision my dream set ups came true. Food was amazing. We had lemon butter chicken that everyone LOVED, beef au jus, vesuvio potatos that were to die for and I ate a lot of, russian pierogi, salad, soup, cucumbers with sour cream and dill and green beans almondine. Our guests raved about the hor deourves that consisted of rolled sandwiches, chichen fingers (YUMO) and super fresh bruschetta. There were drinks and champage on all tables. After dinner they set up the "sweedish table" consisting of the sweet table and late night snack which included various salads, meats, breads, fruit, veggies and dip. They packed leftover fruit and sweet table for us to take home, which was a great snack Sunday morning before we left for our mini moon. The staff was amazing and the head  waitress went above and beyond to make us happy, fetching whatever we requested. I felt taken care of and my guests raved about food, decor and service. The bar tender was super sweet and made drinks FAST!One of the things I was most excited about and people are still raving about was the cake and cake set up. Lido works with the amazing Oakmill bakery where we got to pick the cake we wanted. Lido set the cake in front of the head table and it looked amazing.I highly recommend them and would use them for another event in a heart beat!!! More...

I had my wedding reception here in August. From the moment I walked in the first time, the owner Peter is great!!! He was friendly, showed us the hall, even took us into the kitchen. I had gone to soo many banquet halls and no one treated me as if I was paying them for my event. They treated me like I was waisting their time. When I chose the Lido he helped me every step of the way. Never tried to get me to add on things, just to make the money. He always thought of me. Was very patient with Bridezilla. The day of my wedding everything was in order, nothing went wrong. Everyone is still talking about the great food, great and pleasant waitresses. Beautiful decorations, and they never did anything without asking. It wasn't like other halls that the owners are standing there to watch the party. They give you space. If I was to have another party I would not think twice LIDO is my #1 choice. More...

I must concur with the other reviewers. I've attended many banquets at Lido over the years and also helped plan a family anniversary party here. The food and personal service were excellent. They accommodated all of our needs. The smaller (but not too small) size did contribute to the warmth of our celebration. More...
