I went to the lantern for my wedding and reception. Everything looked nice from the start, and then I signed paperwork. The coordinator became an absolute nightmare to work with. She called me a liar in front of my guests( regarding a misunderstand) which I feel should have been handled much differently. She was rude to my own children and guests. Several of my guests complained about her personally to me after everything was over with. She was very helpful in showing how to do things that we weren't sure of and also provided several things we had forgotten. I paid almost $5,000 for this event and I dreaded working with her. The other employees were nice and friendly, but this coordinator made my experience a living nightmare. I noticed many people,including my bridal party, went out of their way to avoid her. For the money we paid we expected to be treated so much better. It was very uncomfortable. The food was okay and there were SO many rules on things we couldn't do. Some of them were just ridiculous. She knows what she is doing and how things operate, but does not seem to enjoy doing it or like working people.

My experience with the Lantern was terrible and humiliating. In order to hire the Lantern you have to spend $2000 or more on food. We felt that if we were spending our money then the service should have been great. The food was tasty but the service was very unprofessional. We had to pick up our table cloths and take them to the place where our function was being held and put them on the tables. They gave us trash bags and told us that we had to clean the tables off and put the table cloths in the trash bags before we left the party. I was so upset that I talked to the gentlemen who was in charge of the building we rented and he said that we were only suppose to take our centerpieces if we wanted them not clean off the tables. So as you can see they were being mean and not treating us like their everyday customers . We felt degraded and that we were treated unfairly. I know for a fact from talking to my lawyer and other people that there is no excuse for what they did. I hope everyone who reads this understands how we feel. We just wanted to have a party not worry about fixing tables or cleaning up that's the purpose of hiring a catering service.

While I have never tried the caterers or the banquet services, I have been to two antique shows in the reception area of the Lantern on Ardmore. There is plenty of parking and tables can be set out in several of the rooms. There is an ante-room area where it is possible to stop foot traffic to take tickets. The only negative is if you allow smoking in the building, which is still legal in Fort Wayne, the air becomes quite stagnant and unbreathable. If your event bans smoking, then the hall is an excellent place for a casual sale and show.
