Green Acres Restaurant San Diego

Lisa S

We had our wedding here this past weekend 10/15/16 and I have nothing but good things to say about this venue! Here's some highlights... FOOD: amazing quality since most of the produce comes from their garden on site! We choose to do buffet, everything was delicious and was
about average pricing. Only downside was we had to do extras (in case people took too much), so if I could do it again I'd probably order the plated dinner. But even after ordering extras, I think it was still about average pricing from what I've seen at other venues. You do HAVE to use them for food and beverage, since they're a restaurant, but I promise you won't be disappointed. We got so many complements on how amazing everything tasted, so in the end we were really happy with what we picked. Appetizers, entrees, sides, salad, dessert and 2 hour open bar was just under $10K for 140 people (not including tax and service fee). SITE: The venue is tucked away, so you don't have to worry about noise complaints, there's plenty of parking, and the other businesses are all closed on weekends so there's no one else there. We choose to book the full venue - ceremony was on the lawn (had to rent separate chairs for that), cocktail hour was inside, and reception and dance floor were outside. We used all of the tables and chairs onsite for the reception, which saved a ton of money. You will have to get creative if you do so, since they have a mixture of tables sizes and you have to work around the trees and planters outside, but it worked out fine and looked great. One of the biggest selling points for me was how beautiful this venue is. The landscaping and decor have all been done meticulously, so the only decor I brought in myself were centerpieces, table runners and a few signs. No need to take away from what's already there that looks great! There were so many beautiful spots (both inside and outside) to take pictures, our photographer was in heaven! And once again, we got so many complements on how beautiful the location was and how unique it is. STAFF: We worked with Olivia and everything was such a breeze, especially since we only booked it 4 months in advance. Each time we actually went to the venue (either for tastings or meetings) they were so accommodating and friendly. Day of, the staff was just as great. They were quick to bus tables, pour drinks, or help with anything you asked. They definitely have their staff trained well for big events like this. Another huge plus, they're super flexible, which I'm hoping isn't just because they're still new to weddings. We were able to leave all our decor in a room there the night before, set up our own lights, you can get there as early as you want the day of to set up, use the conference rooms upstairs for your bridal party getting ready, and in general they're just EASY to work with. Overall, I'm so so so happy we picked this venue. I know we got it at a good time, since this is only their first year for weddings. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to spending $10-20K and really get their money's worth! Just keep in mind the service fee, tax, and labor charges if you're on a tight budget ;)
