Michella and Joe's Favorite Places
Benton Harbor   |   June, 2013   |   Restaurant

"Discover the Bistro on the Boulevard, an extraordinary dining experience in downtown St. Joseph, MI. Our seasonally changing menus feature one-of-a kind appetizers, entrees, and desserts made with locally sourced ingredients. The Bistro was named “Region’s Best Fine Dining Restaurant” by Shore Magazine and is one of only two Southwest Michigan restaurants to boast Wine Spectators award of excellence for “one of the best restaurant wine lists in the world”. Our restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch."

"Delicious, high end new American fare. Large and small plates available, along with an outstanding wine list."

Julie and Jeremy's Wedding
Saint Joseph   |   August, 2011   |   Hotel

"Best location of hotels in the area, decent rooms (some are nicer than others, but you can tell it's been a while since a remodel), a bit overpriced (but so is everything in the area during the summer season). The restaurant is excellent. Special events service was very poor, however. Over a year in advance, we opened up a wedding block, and they promised they would open up more rooms for us as we filled them (we requested 20-30 rooms and they originally only wanted to open 10). Six months later, when they finally followed up with the contract, we were dismayed to find out that they had not opened up more rooms for us and now the hotel was entirely booked. We had to scramble to find other hotels who could accommodate our group (and yes, we needed more than 30 rooms). Such a stressful experience, and so disappointing given the business we were offering them."

Stacey and Brent's Wedding
Saint Joseph   |   July, 2011   |   Reception

"Our reception was held in the library off of the lobby of the Inn. Anne & team took care of everything. The food was fantastic. Everyone raved about it!"

Rebecca and Christopher's Wedding
Saint Joseph   |   May, 2011   |   Reception Venue

"We had some issues working out the kinks in the menu etc, especially as we were working via email. We live in NH and were trying to plan the wedding remotely. There were a few times that I was concerned it was not going to be correct, but in the end each meal was served as planned. The room offers a beautiful veranda which was part of the reason we chose it, but at the time of our wedding it was under construction to repair some apparent weather damage that rendered it useless. It also rendered it unsightly with heavy duty plastic blowing in the wind. They worked with us to tape it down so it wouldn't blow, and also added a curtain to the lower half of the doors so it was not visible to our seated guests. We also rented the lobby area of the hotel for use as a dance floor which they did a great job of separating from the rest of the guests. It offered a beautiful view and ambiance itself. The food was good, not what I would expect coming from a place named the Bistro, but we were not unhappy, nor were our guests. We still hear comments 2 months later about how awesome it was."

Rebecca and Christopher's Wedding
Saint Joseph   |   May, 2011   |   Hotel

"The rooms were nice, not exactly what I would consider upscale, but they are all suites. The view of the lake was great (if you were on that side of the building) and the view of the parking lot out back was avoidable in the corner two bedroom suite we chose. We met with the hotel in December and chose our menu etc for the reception we planned to hold in their Library. At that time, we also booked a block of rooms. At the time of the wedding some of our guests were told the hotel was sold out even though only one of our blocked rooms was rented. I'm not sure where the miscommunication came in, but we did have some guests who attempted to book last minute..."

Rebecca and Christopher's Wedding
Saint Joseph   |   May, 2011   |   Ceremony Venue

"We originally planned to hold the ceremony next door to the hotel in the Maud Preston Palenske Memorial Library Garden, but as is the case with Lake Michigan in Spring, it rained. We had reserved a canopy and chairs to protect ourselves and our guests from a heavy rain, but with only three hours to spare we proposed using our Reception space as a ceremony space as well. This was not an easy feat as our tables were already set up with our place cards, centerpieces etc and using the space for the ceremony as well would require moving all of this and some very quick thinking and organization on the part of the hotel. With only an hour to spare, we made the final decision and the staff leapt into action. They moved everything out, created a gorgeous ceremony setting and then broke it all down and replaced the reception setting. It was amazing and really set a stress free tone to the day, trust that something WILL go wrong on your wedding day, but the event staff here was able to seamlessly create a flow between the ceremony and reception and made it look easy."

"The Bistro did an outstanding job of catering our reception. The food was outstanding. 1 month later people are still telling us how great the filets were! The chef cooked them on-site on KitchenAid grills. All the food and service was outstanding!"

Saint Joseph   |   October, 2007   |   Hotel

"The "honeymoon package" is grossly overpriced. While the standard rooms or nice, and worth the money, the suite we had on our wedding night was nearly horrid. While it was large and had a hot tub, the sheets were cheap, decorations cheesy and for the price... Not worth it at all. Stick to the Bistro (restaurant) with the Boulevard."
