"J. Liu was amazing! Todd Brown and the staff at J. Liu were wonderful. Todd offered suggestions and ideas that worked great for our wedding. We had no trouble scheduling meetings with him or making any changes. We received so many compliments on the food and the beautiful space. Absolute great venue!"

"We had our wedding reception at J. Liu this past October 22nd. Todd and the entire staff did an exceptional job with everything. The layout was perfect, and they decorated the ballroom better than we could have imagined. Todd was a pleasure to work with during the several months leading up to the wedding, and gave us some great ideas we would have never thought of. A true professional. We received countless compliments on the venue and food especially. Chef James did an excellent job with our entrees and appetizers. The staff cleaned everything up for us, and we just had to come the next day to pick up a few things. We would highly recommend J. Liu to anyone considering a wedding in the great Columbus area. The overall price was very reasonable for the quality of product and service we received. It was definitely the perfect end to our perfect day."

"Our reception at J.Liu was absolutely wonderful. The space was perfect for what we wanted and offered tons of flexibility for food and beverage. They were able to totally customize our menu to what we wanted within a reasonable price range. The food was delicious and we have gotten nothing but good feedback from our guests. Everyone said they would never forget our wedding reception because it was so unique as far as food and venue. Also, Todd was very helpful in helping to plan the event and the serving staff was excellent. I would recommend J.Liu for any event or even just for a nice dinner!"

"J Liu was the perfect choice for my husband and I. The place is beyond beautiful, and all of our pictures turned out amazing. Todd Brown and his wonderful staff went above and beyond our expectations to make sure that our day was perfect! Todd is easy to get a hold of, and very good about giving ideas, and sharing his recommendations and making the event the best it can be. He was also very good about keeping our budget in mind, and helping us decide where to spend our valuable dollars. Overall we couldn't be happier with the venue and great service. Our reception was so much fun and absolutely perfect. I would HIGHLY reccommend!"

"Matt and I cannot thank you enough for the amazing job you've done. We could not be happier with our reception. You and your staff have been amazing to work with in organizing this event.

"After a couple minor hiccups during the planning process, I was a little nervous that things would not be just as they should on my wedding day, but the level of personal service and attention from the staff at J. Liu were exceptional. Yes, the presentation of our dinner was slightly different than what we had tasted
and expected, but it was delicious nonetheless, and all of our special requests were handled beautifully.  My guests were thoroughly impressed and complimentary. I would recommend J. Liu without hesitation."

"We couldn't be happier with our choice of J. Liu Worthington for our November wedding this past year.  They helped us bring to fruition our vision for what we ended up being the BEST day of our far :) It was truly amazing working with Todd and his team. We could not have asked for a better experience.
For what could have been an extremely overwhelming and stressful planning time, I never once felt that working with Todd. We tackled things a little bit at a time to make it more manageable and he handled my secret crazy bride side SO well! Todd also made it fun which is exactly what wedding planning should be,
but according to others is most often not. I so appreciate that!!!"

"We have had so many compliments on the reception - how beautiful the room was, how amazing the staff was, how incredible the food was, and most importantly how comfortable everyone was in the venue. We will never be able to properly put into words how thankful we are to have met and worked with Todd and the team at J. Liu."

"We couldn't have picked a better venue! We were so happy with how it turned out! All of the staff were so attentive and professional and really went the extra mile for to make the reception perfect for us! Todd, our event manager, was so great to work with- he gave us lots of personal attention and great
suggestions during the planning to make sure everything went well. He even was inspired to make a personalized slideshow for our guests to see as they entered the restaurant! (by retyping stories about special places/events in our relationship that my husband had written for the table cards and even adding
pictures that he found on the internet) It was so special that he would take the extra time to do something like that! Also the venue was so flexible- we ended up just shy of the minimum payment (I few less guests than we planned) so Todd suggested that because we had a fairly long cocktail hour we could add some
more appitizers and it seemed to work out wonderfully! Overall- it was just great!"

"Highly recommend having your reception at J. Liu's! They were great to work with, they were really flexible and easy to work with, especially considering I was out of state. They also had great ideas to maximize my package. The packages are a great value. All the guests told us repeatedly how beautiful the reception was, how great the food was, and how friendly all the staff were! It was truly an amazing night, and they went out of their way to accommodate us."

"JLiu's was a beautiful place to have a wedding reception. I had nothing but positive comments from my guests about the food and the wine selections. Everything was set up exactly as planned, and the staff was extremely accomodating. It was a perfect location for our party of 120, but could easily hold more. I would highly recommend JLiu's of Worthington to anyone planning a wedding reception. "

"I had researched and priced many reception locations before we ultimately decided upon J. Liu's in Worthington. The location was close to the church and where our guests would be staying, absolutely beautiful and the food was amazing. Working with Todd was a great experience. He had great ideas for setup, food choices and flow of the evening. He and the J. Liu's staff were very accommodating; one of the chef's even came up with a South American appetizer (in honor of my husband's heritage) just for our wedding that our guests loved. Todd was very hands-on with every step of the process by meeting with me to show me his vision for the event and how the evening would be best organized. The day before the wedding, he even made time with me to go over the last-minute details. He even stored our reception decor overnight in his office so I did not have to stress the next day about how to get it there in time for set up. And I also did not have to worry about setup, either!

Our wedding style was modern-vintage and the reception room at J. Liu's fit in perfectly as far as ambience. We had our own private bar, bathrooms, and elevators for those who could not use the stairs. We loved the 1940's supper club feel to it and very little decor was needed on our part. The staff working at our reception were all amazing. I never had to ask for a refill and the bartenders were on-top of it (our guests never had an empty glass, either). We had a stir-fry chef who made great stir-fry and our guests loved that added touch (very unique).

Overall, our experience was priceless and it made for an even more memorable night. Our guests still talk about our reception: how much fun they had, how J. Liu's was fantastic, and how much they loved the food.

Thank you again to Mr. Liu, Todd and their amazing staff. You made our night one to remember!"
