Beautiful Setting, An Eventective User from Santa Clarita, California

Picturesque setting overlooking the city. One of my daughter's held her reception here for her wedding. There is a variety of ballrooms to choose from and the staff are amiable and helpful. The costs are reasonable and full bar and catering is available. The patio is amazing for the city view it offers and there are many garden areas that off very photogenic settings such as a rope fenced lagoon area and a beautifully lit gazebo. Ivy lined walkways just add to the ambiance here. Overall a definite consideration for company and wedding events that will please most of your attendants.


Beautiful View of Entire San Fernando Valley, An Eventective User from Los Angeles, CA

The Castaway Restaurant is a popular destination for brunches, banquets, weddings etc. because of its unique location atop the Burbank Hills. From its locale you can look out across the expanse of the San Fernando Valley which is especially gorgeous from dusk on into the evening given the glittering city lights. There is ample space for large parties of people and the staff is courteous and friendly. With over 40 years in town they are used to accommodating all kinds of events. While I have not attended a wedding there myself I have been a dozen times or more and it is a favorite place for me to take people from out of town. Friends, family and acquaintances have all joined me there at one point or another. A friend of my wife had her birthday dinner there after I had initially brought her out on a random evening. I also gave a dinner gift certificate to my old roommate. Parking is never a problem and even though it is located at the top of a hill it is still very easy to find as it is accessible through the main roads of Downtown Burbank as you get off of the 5 freeway. Every time I have eaten there the food has been good, especially desserts. The decor of the main restaurant area could use a little updating, but overall the place is very attractive. Oh! Did I mention the array of fire pits they have arranged on the patio? Those are great at night!


Castaway Burbank, An Eventective User from Azusa California

The Castaway in Burbank is set on the side of a mountain overlooking the whole valley below. There are several rooms available, we used the "Verdugo Room" all the rooms have floor to ceiling windows along the view sides of the room. The Verdugo Room has the windows on two connecting sides so you can take advantage of the view below. The venue staff was very accomodating and helpful during the sales and lead up stage to the wedding. A few little problems that are expected to occur with events like these were promptly and adequately addressed by the venue's supervisory staff. Other than the windows the rooms are generally a clean slate that you can decorate or preapre to the needs of your wedding or event. The food at the venue was fantastic. No complaints from any of our guests all food was delivered hot and met the expectations of the dish on the menu. Our guests had choice of Prime Rib, Lobster Tail, Stuffed Chicken Breast. Wait staff were curteous and on their A game throughout the event. We were greeted at the entrance of our limo with champagne and Hors d'Oeuvres. We were catered to from beginning to end. We were given plenty of time after the end of the event to gather our gifts and other items to leave. There was no rushing out the door. Overall a great venue run by great staff with my favorite part a great view.


Excellent for weddings, An Eventective User from burbank CA

The staff is always smiling and well versed in all the MANY needs of their brides and wedding ceremonies. The bar was well stocked and the bartender was very educated with mixing and pouring of the libations. The DJ service recommended showed up in a tuxedo, was polite without being a complete moron, did not play obnoxious music and was able to keep the party going without a lull or dulling moment, acting as the MC for the entire evening and while using the body microphone or the handheld instrument, there was never a moment of "feedback". All equipment was clean and in excellent working condition. The florist was early (as well as the rest of the hired staff) and was dressed accordingly. She was able to calm the younger children down as well as get everyone where they needed to be for the big event. The food was delightful! Everything that was to remain hot for serving was just that while the chilled refreshment was tasty and seasoned correctly. The room was decorated exactly as agreed upon in the contract and the event staff was more than willing to work with our choices to make the event as well as the dining and dancing all the way to the cake cutting and Second Line dance an exquisite night. I have been to other planned events held at this same location and for that, we choose to have our special day to become man and wife at this extraordinary venue.
