Went to a wedding here. Fantastic venue. Thought we were going to die in the lift with the noises it makes.

Our daughter had her wedding here in March 2021. We, as a family couldn’t have been happier with the service, venue, food and ambience. We chose a Sunday night, so had a full bar special.

The venue has quite a nice location on the South Wharf, close to the DFO. The entranceway is quite nice, as was the initial bar area at the top. They had a selection of drinks and canapes. The dining area was opened up once most of the people had arrived. The views of the city were quite nice. The staff were all quite good but there were times where it was hard to find anyone to get some drinks, or a drink order being forgotten. The food was alright. It wasn't amazing but it was nice. I didn't like how the mains (Beef or fish) were alternating. It was otherwise a really nice, convenient venue.

Exceeded every expectation! Food & Desire made our wedding day so wonderful at their venue Aerial. The process from start to finish was easy, working with their event coordinators and venue managers. The organisation and service of all the staff is high quality, they were so accommodating and enthusiastic for our special day. The food was fabulous, our guests raved about the taste and freshness, plus we had a special ice cream bar that Food & Desire willingly organised for us, that our guests loved! We couldn't have asked for a better wedding venue. Highly recommend Food & Desire at Aerial, their service and quality of catering is beyond wonderful.
