Reviews for The Columbus Athenaeum

Terrible venue. We had to cancel the reception due to COVID and they tried to keep ALL of our money. We had to sue the Athenaeum to get even part of our money back. And they kept thousands for nothing! Although we didn't get to have our dinner - the food at the tasting was not good at all. And they wouldn't provide vegetarian dishes for the tasting so we had to order foods we had never tasted for the reception. Stay away from the Athenaem if you want your night to be full review

Had my wedding here prior to covid. We did a tasting prior to the wedding the food was great at the tasting seemed not to be has tasty at the actual wedding. But these people went above and beyond to bring my vision to life they have everything planned and are great at keeping the event on time. They made sure I had the perfect day.

I visited the Athenaeum to see the layout of the banquet hall for a wedding reception photography shoot.  I called ahead and made arrangements with a pleasant young woman who met and gave me a tour.  She allowed me to stay as long as I needed to take preliminary shots and do lighting tests.

Our location was quite spacey with good depth to see the front without obstruction.  There is a small stage to suit many of your needs and dim lighting, which I assume to be full review
