Cefalo's is an excellent banquet hall located in an old church in Carnegie. The sanctuary has been converted into the main banquet area with a bar, having a nightclub feel. At least two additional rooms, one quite large and the other more intimate, are also used for dining. These other rooms are more restaurant-like. The truly outstanding thing about Cefalo's is the food. They have a great chef, who never disappoints. The owner is always on hand to help and is friendly and attentive to your needs. I'd definitely recommend Cefalo's if you have need of a banquet hall.
I just wanted to thank you for everything last night! Everyone said they had a great time! The food was awesome and the service was extraordinary! The Brussel sprouts were especially a hit!! Lots of compliments on them.
This will be our venue next year too!
Thanks again for everything!
The food and service is outstanding!! This is the second time we have been there for my husband's Christmas party and can't say enough about how good it is. My company had a Christmas party at another venue last week and it was awful. I took a business card and will pass it along and hopefully we can have our party here next year. The Brussel sprouts are incredible as well as everything from the appetizers, drinks, and desserts. The staff is very personable and concerned for your needs. Wish you had an actual restaurant again because we would be there a lot!!
I wanted to send you a huge Thank You for hosting our company holiday party on December 15th. The service from your staff was amazing. The food was fabulous. The room was beautiful. I truly appreciate you taking us on such short notice (that's how we roll). I have heard nothing but rave reviews from the entire team!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Recently hosted a 90th birthday party for my father. We had 55 people at the event. The whole experience was wonderful! Len and his staff were great! I wanted to show a mini movie I put together on the house projection/AV system so I went there the day before to run a test. I was really impressed with the projector and the sound system in the main room. Which is beautifully accented with large stained glass windows on each side. The building used to be an old stone church. There's a full bar, balcony, stage, dance floor and room for many tables. The whole show came off without a hitch. The food was incredible. Actually, even better than expected! We had Tuscan Chicken or Tilapia for our dinner choices. Those recipes were delicious! And served on time with a smile from the staff. When we as hosts had any questions the staff or Len himself was there to answer them right away. The whole place is very classy, elegant... even the bathrooms. Myself, my brother or sister will certainly keep Cefalo's in mind for our next event! And just a quick thanks to Len, Amy and the whole staff for making the day such a memorable event for everyone!
We just wanted to thank you again for a wonderful time at our daughter’s wedding reception. Everything worked out just as you had outlined it. We had numerous comments from our guests about the beautiful building itself and the superior meals (steak, tilapia, and vegetarian).
One of our guests ran a catering business for several years. He called me Sunday to thank us for his invitation and to comment on what a wonderful job you did. Of course, he looked at things from a caterer’s point of view: presentation of the table – quality and cleanliness of the linens, china, glassware, and silverware; placement of the plates, silverware, and glasses; the entrees – plating of the food, temperature, and of course, the quality and taste of the food; the wait staff – courtesy, attentiveness, and professionalism. Same with the bartenders – professional, attentive, and friendly. He said it was one of the best jobs he had ever seen. A female guest, who is getting married in October, told as she left that “we showed her what a wedding reception should be like”. Another compliment to you and your staff.
In summary, thanks again to Len, your manager Amy, Chef Dean and his kitchen staff, your bartenders, and your wait staff. A job well done and highly appreciated by us and our guests.
Mr. C and his staff are first class. Beautiful, clean building with a great chef in the kitchen. Highly recommend!
I've been here several times for professional society meetings. Of all of the banquet halls that we go to by far this place has the best food (only time in my life I wanted more brussel sprouts) and a really great bar. The place is a converted old church so lots of character in the dining room and a good separate space with the bar that is used for the presentations or could make a good dance floor for a reception. Talked to the owner last time there and he was great as well.
I used to work here, the food is so good! Dean makes great pasta dishes and the lobster bisque is amazing! The Cefalo's who own this place are great people. I had my bridal shower here, and they took great care of me and my guests. They try to be extremely professional in all their dealings.
I personally want to thank Lenny & Dean Cefalo for the opening/support of their facility for my fundraiser for The Center for Victims. This event was In Memory of my daughter Melissa Bowers, murdered in Carnegie by Domestic Violence. Citizens like Lenny and Dean need to be publicly praised for supporting this non-profit organization and making it possible for myself to bring awareness of domestic violence within the community of Carnegie and surrounding communities. Having this event at their venue was one of the reasons that $4257 were raised to date. So thank you personally Lenny & Dean!!
Enjoy reading about how much our customers enjoyed their event at Cefalo's!
