“We just had our destination wedding at Cili at Bali Hai in September 2016. Our wedding exceeded our expectations and everyone had a wonderful time. Angel made planning a wedding an easy and stress-free time. We wanted an elegant wedding near the strip and Cili was the perfect choice. The venue was beautiful and the food was delicious. Angel and his staff were attentive to every detail and couldn’t do enough for us and our guests. We had our ceremony outdoors, the cocktail hour on the covered stone patio, and then our reception was indoors. If weather permits, I’d highly recommend this same arrangement. Our wedding was PERFECT and I’d highly recommend having your Vegas wedding at Cili at Bali Hai and entrusting Angel with your special day.”

“A review in one word; impeccable. More? Incredible, perfection, amazing, beautiful, wonderful, glorious! Angel Kroenecke and the entire staff at Cili at Bali Hai truly provided my husband, guests, and I with the best day ever. Angel took my fairly vague ideas about what I wanted and spun it into stunningly beautiful place settings, tables, flowers, and venue. The bar was open and plentiful with attentive servers who never let a drink run empty. The food was delicious; many of my guests were foodies and said it was one of the best meals they’ve had. The officiant chosen by Angel was charming and funny; it seemed like he knew us forever. Everyone was in tears. The DJ got the music started and kept everyone pumped the entire reception. Did I mention this was the best day of my life? I couldn’t have dreamt of a better day, everything went off without a hitch and I didn’t have to worry about a thing. Cili at Bali Hai is the most amazing venue and I strongly recommend them to you; I know you’ll love them!”

“We had our wedding at Cili at Bali Hai Golf club August 6th, a day I like to refer to as the best day of my life. From the beginning, Angel made the planning process seamless and fun. He is everything you can ask for in a Wedding coordinator: attentive, thoughtful, professional, and reassuring. Communication is imperative in a destination wedding, and Angel made it so easy. The day of our wedding, I was completely blown away. Angel and the staff at Cili was able to recreate my vision even better than I ever could have imagined. The florist was fantastic….from the bouquets, the arch, the center pieces… just divine. The food was delicious; our guest could not stop raving about it. The cake was perfection. The officiant Doug, made our ceremony so special. DJ KnightSounds kept our guest on the dance floor all night long. All of the staff was extremely attentive and did such a wonderful job. Honestly, there are no words to express how happy we are to have chosen Cili as our venue. It was the most perfect night that we will never forget. Thank you!

“My husband and I had our wedding reception at Cili Restaurant at Bali Hai Golf Club back in June and we genuinely could not have found a better venue. We had expected it to be top class but it way exceeded our expectations! The venue is a stunning oasis away from the madness of Vegas, yet close enough that you still feel part of the city with some great vantage points for photographs with a Vegas backdrop! For us, what really did stand out however, was the high quality of service we received. Nothing was too much trouble and the team were exceptional in making our dream day come to life.
Angel was our main contact and he was fabulous! Given we were planning our wedding from the UK and had never actually met him until one week before our big day, we had absolute faith. His recommendations and experience are second to none and it was a delight to work with him on our wedding. We had a menu tasting one week before the wedding, where we got to meet other members of the team too, such as the pastry chef who created the most fantastically delicious desserts and wedding cake we could ever have wished for – something I know for sure we wouldn’t have had back in the UK, and all of the food itself was incredible. Even just at the menu tasting, we were treated like royalty! Angel worked his magic in creating us the perfect signature cocktail too, and after plenty of sampling the perfect cocktail was created.
When it came to the day, all of our guests said how amazing the venue was, the comments on the food and drink was better than we could ever have dreamed of and the day went flawlessly to plan. The backdrop and grounds created the perfect setting for photographs and we even got to ride in a golf buggy to find the perfect photo with The Strip in the background! Our guests made several comments in relation to how friendly all of the team were at Cili and how welcoming they were too. I genuinely mean this when I say we could not have found a better location for our day and I wish we could do it all again. I know all of our guests will be talking of it for years to come and this is down to the effort and hard work from the team at Cili. Thank you!”

“We had our ceremony and reception at Cili at Bali Hai Golf Club on April 2, 2016. Let me start by saying that I never imagined that our special day would be so perfect. They exceeded our expectations, and we have received countless compliments from friends and family.
When we were looking for venues, we came to an open house at Cili. They were so welcoming and I immediately had confidence that they were the right choice. i found their prices to be a great value for the service they provide. They are pretty much a one stop all inclusive stop. Their package includes floral, a minister (if needed), cake, dj and more. They also gave me several suggestions on makeup, limo, and pretty much anything I asked.
The food at Cili is AMAZING. From cocktail hour to the delicious steaks and Chilean sea bass, the meals were executed flawlessly. We chose to have a cake, cupcakes and chocolate covered strawberries for dessert. It was all amazing! Though, the delicious food, beautiful scenery, and and convenience were all factors in my choice, that’s not even the best part of this venue. The service is unparalleled!
Literally everyone on the Cili staff treated us great. I kept telling everyone that they treated us like we were the only wedding that they had there. We always felt that our wedding was truly the most important thing to them. Our wedding coordinator, Angel, was great about answering my questions (some of which I asked multiple times). He is a thoughtful and incredible planner and ensured that every detail was taken care of so that we didn’t have to worry about it. Service on the day of the wedding was unbelievable. We had one dedicated server for each table and one server that was just for us. There was no point in the night that we needed or wanted anything. Our server anticipated our needs, we never had an empty glass!
I would highly recommend this venue for any important event. Especially your big day!”

“I’ve heard that there is no such thing as a perfect wedding but that’s a lie. We truly had a PERFECT day! Sarah decorated the outside patio and it was very classy, the Captain and Adrian made sure the serving staff had everything we needed. The DJ and Sarah coordinated the timeline perfectly. Listen up, if you’re considering other venues just stop. Cili/Bali Hai are AMAZING. The food was delicious and the service is second to none. Love you, guys.”

“Words cannot explain how pleased everyone was with the wedding! It was truly beyond my (and my and Joe’s family’s) expectations!! Everything ran so smoothly and Sarah (and everyone involved) were truly amazing to work with. From the first time we stepped in Cili- I knew it was my wedding venue!! Literally every single thing was so beautiful!!!!!
I couldn’t even hold back my emotions yesterday- as I stated crying while thanking Sarah. This truly wasn’t just a business exchange- you all took such genuine care with our wedding which would have not happened anywhere else.
I hope this is just a beginning to a lovely friendship! Again, please thank everyone involved that made our special day truly magical!!!”

John & Mary, Mother & Father of the Bride | April 21st, 2016
“Mary and I just wanted to say, thank you very much for all your hard work with Kelly and Joe, and us in the preparation of the wedding. It was a FABULOUS wedding. Right from our arrival to the reception an hour ahead of schedule to the end which went over well past midnight, it couldn’t have been any more magical. The beautiful atmosphere immediately set the tone for the great party to come. Your passion and caring for clients, shows through all your diligence. I will always remember the band ending the wedding with the remaining guests singing a resounding “Proud to be an American”. Many of the guests were there to the end which was an acknowledgment of an infamous night. We were “proud” that we were at the Bali Hai!
Our compliments to the staff for being so welcoming and attentive to every detail. All our family and guests were treated like royalty! The specialty cocktails were delicious and the bartenders did a great job serving all the guests. Your assistant made sure that if we needed anything at all, that our “wishes were truly his command”. He was very gracious, alert to our every need, and made it very relaxing for us knowing that all our guests were experiencing the best service.
The food from the passed appetizers, to the salad, to the pasta (which was exactly what we had in mind), to the entree’s which all the guests raved about!!! All the entrees hot, beautifully prepared and delicious. I personally had the Chilean Sea Bass, with the parmigiana risotto. It was tremendous! The cake was absolutely beautiful and delicious. Please pass our compliments to the chef and his kitchen staff. They did a magnificent job!!
I’m sure that you know, Kelly and Joe we’re ecstatic that every component of their wedding was perfect. Thanks to you all, all our family and friends will always have great thoughts of truly a special and memorable family event at the Bali Hai in Las Vegas!”

“Where do I began? Angel and the staff at Cili were incredible. From the day we had our first meeting to pick a date until the last song was played at our wedding someone was always available for us. Angel made it fun to plan the wedding and he’s such a great person to work with. One of many great things about Cili is you have options for marriage locations. We were originally going to get married on the lawn but it happened to be windy that day so we made a fast decision to move the ceremony to the patio and it was just as beautiful, if not more. You had the great view without the elements. Another great thing is Cili is all inclusive!!!!! You don’t have to work with a bunch of vendors. They have everything included. The food is spectacular! I could go on for days about the food. We served the surf & turf, chicken and fish for our dinner menu options. We had a hard time deciding what to serve because EVERYTHING was amazing. If I could get married 100 times I wouldn’t change a thing about that night and I feel we owe it to Cili for their great service and wonderful vendors.”

Courtney, The Bride | April 9th, 2016
“I married my best friend on April 09, 2016 at Cili Restaurant at Bali Hai Golf Club. Magical is the one word that sums up the entire evening at Cili Restaurant. The staff did a tremendous job hosting my wedding. Every single detail was perfect from the décor, arch, flowers, cake, beverages, small details to the amazing food (the list is endless). Cili Restaurant’s wedding coordinator, Angel went above and beyond in every aspect of my wedding and the venue was beautifully put together.
The best part about having your wedding at Cili Restaurant is the stress free process. My wedding coordinator took care of everything for me. Cili Restaurant offers all inclusive packages so I did not have to work with outside vendors, solely a photographer. All I had to do was send pictures/ideas of what I wanted and they made it happen. The day of the wedding I did not have to worry about a thing.
All of the guests raved about how delicious the food was. Cili Restaurant served an impeccable plated dinner with Grilled Rib-Eye Steak with Shrimp Scampi on a bed of Mashed Potatoes and a Seared Free Range Chicken with Parmigiana Risotto. Huge compliments to the Cili Chef and entire kitchen staff for the delicious and beautifully displayed dinner.
My wedding cake was created by the on-site Pastry Chef and was absolutely stunning. The on-site florist created my floral arch, bouquets, boutonniere and centerpieces. The flowers were lovely and everything I asked for. Both the Cili Florist and Pastry Chef are true artists and create beautiful cake and floral designs.
The service is impeccable. It was so relaxing knowing that my guests were well taken care of. The staff was helpful, pleasant and always made sure I had a drink in my hand. Cili truly makes it their duty to ensure your day is special and that everyone is enjoying themselves. A big shout out to Angel, Sarah, Tommy and Jorge for going above and beyond!
A huge thank you to all of Cili Restaurants staff for making my wedding day a dream come true.
If you are interested in Cili Restaurant for your wedding day feel free to message me with any questions you have about this gorgeous Las Vegas Wedding Venue, I highly recommend it. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org”

“We had our wedding here on April 16th 2016 both Ceremony and Reception. Angel was our wedding planner from the start and was beyond helpful and generous with the entire process, wedding planning can get a bit hectic and stressful but Angel always kept us grounded and assured that everything would be taken care of! The staff was absolutely incredible here – went above and beyond for everyone. Making sure we were all taken care of in every way, on every visit before the wedding and exceeded any expectations I ever had on the actual wedding day. You definitely get your moneys worth choosing Cili between their amazing staff, incredible food and their all inclusive packages they offer! They did such a great job in making my vision come to reality it was better then I could have ever imagined or expected. I would choose Cili over and over again if I had to. And did I mention the FOOD?! We had guests from all over the world who have been to countless number of weddings continue to tell us how impressed they were with everything from location, views, decor, staff and food. Thank you Cili for making our day one we will never forget!!”

Mandy L., The Bride | November 3, 2015
“We had our wedding at Cili 2 weeks ago and the customer service was impeccable! Angel, Sarah and Tommy went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly and to our satisfaction. They were flexible, attentive & easy to work with. I mentioned that I was very nervous right before the ceremony and needed a “shot”. Tommy overheard it and had a Tequila shot ready for me right after the ceremony on a tray! I was very impressed by their attention to details. All the guests had a great time and couldn’t stop commenting on how awesome the food (especially the Chilean bass–so yummy) and drinks were and how beautiful the wedding was. We highly recommend this venue for weddings and any other events because they know how to do it perfectly!”
The Bride | October 2015
“I know this is a little late seeing as my wedding was here in October but I just wanted to write this review. I, as has every woman probably dreamed of their big day their entire lives and my wedding here exceeded everyone’s expectations. My parents were worried about spending the money for it at first but after everything was said and done they had said it was all completely worth it. We are still in the New Year getting compliments on how beautiful the wedding was and how amazing the food was. We had the greatest time and every one of our guests felt valued. Drinks never went empty. Food was hot and delicious. Angel was heaven sent I swear. With the craziness that is wedding planning he knew just how to make me feel at ease. We absolutely loved our wedding. Also, I am sorry but I don’t remember our servers name but he was so incredible and great at what he does. They even packaged up our dinners for us to take with us. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this place and will definitely recommend.”
Herman Reich, Father of the Bride | September 21, 2015
“Just a note to thank you, Angel, along with Sarah and the entire staff at Cili for a wonderful wedding and reception. Great planning, organization and execution. It couldn’t have been better.”
Colleen | Mother of the Bride | June 19, 2015
“Our daughter’s destination wedding was an event that absolutely had to be perfect. We had great concerns about entrusting the planning of this life event to someone we had never met. Tracy Horn and Cili Restaurant were excellent in pre-wedding communications. We had no worries during the planning. Tracy always answered emails and phone messages on a timely basis, even with a three-hour difference in time zones. Details were all handled prior to our arrival. Tracy assisted with all the details including the rehearsal. The wedding of our daughter couldn’t have been more perfect. The ceremony on the patio with the sun setting over the beautiful golf course was picturesque. While the bride and groom were busy with photos, the guests relaxed with impeccable service, refreshing beverages and delicious hors d’oeuvres. Robert was exceptionally attentive, everyone raved about his service throughout the evening. We had the opportunity to provide the guests with a diversified menu of main entrees, including a children’s section. The food was the best anyone had while they were in Las Vegas. Our thanks to the chef and waitstaff for a meal that matched the quality of the setting, and the perfection of the ceremony. Our daughter chose the music for both the ceremony and the reception, requiring extra time for the DJ to attain her requests. Our expectations were exceeded by the DJ. He provided a great variety of music for all ages and handled all special requests. All the guests liked him. We would recommend Cili Restaurant and all the employees that helped make our daughter’s wedding so memorable. We couldn’t have asked for anything more.”
Jackie | Bride | June 7, 2015
“I must say, from start to finish, I was amazed! They were so great, from the first time my wedding coordinator called me to the last hug from the night with the staff! Everyone who came said several times it was and will always be the best wedding they ever attend… unless there is another at Cili! They had champagne, wine, fruit, cheese, crackers and bottled water all prepped for my arrival in the bridal room and we were greeted by a cheerful server and my coordinator. That was the first moment of my wedding beginning and it made me feel like a princess. Then followed an amazing ceremony where the staff didn’t miss a beat. It was flawless. The minute we were pronounced husband and wife and made our way back down the aisle, we were greeted with a server with a platter of wine and our signature drink. As we took photos, they continued to make their way to us to serve passed appetizers and more drinks. We made our way in for dinner and, with Cili being known for their food, they did not disappoint! They blew expectations out of the water!!! No one could stop talking about the appetizers and, when the dinner came out, it was game over. No one could stop stuffing their faces. They make-to-order the food which adds another layer of quality that weddings just don’t typically offer. When I would go to leave for a washroom break, a staff member even ran to the door to let me in from the outside patio. SERVICE was AMAZING!!!! They were there to help at every single opportunity that was available to them. They really cared and genuinely wanted to help and make all of us feel like a million bucks! The price was outstanding and I would have paid ten times what I did. It was not just a wedding, it was an experience and I honestly must say I don’t believe any other venue could deliver what Cili does. The cake, dessert bar, late night quesadilla bar, flowers, linens, centerpieces, officiant, DJ and staff was literally perfect. It’s beyond shocking how perfect it was. I am so honored to have had my wedding with Cili.”
Will | Groom | June 6, 2015
“Cili was just great! We live in Maryland, but yet their staff was extremely easy to work with and very responsive. On the day of the event, we even decided to through some last-minute change-ups and there was absolutely no issue whatsoever. Wedding day, they were so attentive to all of our guests and even had at least one person designated to my and my bride so that we never needed to worry about getting food, drinks, etc. They were all over it and had us covered! The food was just absolutely tremendous. All night, days and weeks after the event, all we heard was “it was the best food I have ever eaten!” Venue location to die for, simply just beautiful. I think this took people by complete surprise, the water, palm trees and set-up just remarkable. I could not ask for more, they made the event one to treasure for the rest of our lives!”
Mother of the Bride | January, 2015
“We hosted my daughter’s wedding at Cili in late January and it was a great experience, all the way from planning to the wedding itself. It was a top-notch event that met my daughter’s hopes and dreams, and it garnered glowing comments from our guests. The setting is gorgeous with the tropical golf course backdrop and patios, and the interior spaces are expansive and luxurious. The indoor-outdoor layout can accommodate any weather conditions. The dining room was beautifully appointed with high-end linens and place settings. The floral arrangements were beautiful and a perfect match to my daughter’s vision. Cili provides an all-inclusive service that covered the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and dancing, along with the excellent florist. The food was delicious, beginning with the plentiful appetizer selections picked by the couple, and onto dinner that was on par with any fine dining experience in Las Vegas. The entrée selections were raved about by the guests and the presentation was wonderful. We had a mixed drinking and non-alcohol crowd, but everyone’s glass was kept full by the amazing servers. There were plenty of servers both for cocktails as well as dinner, and they provided first-class attention while being personable and fun. Also fun was the included DJ, who ensured that special wedding elements (first dance, etc.) were conducted and encouraged guest enjoyment in an engaging but not obnoxious manner. So, the event itself was outstanding in every way. But from my perspective, also important was the planning experience. Tracy Horn, the catering sales manager, coordinated the planning and was a joy to work with. She personally ensured things ran perfectly the day of the wedding. You have a lot of control over the layout, food, music, flowers, etc. Everything about our experience with Cili was positive. Costs were fully and accurately disclosed, and we believe we received excellent value for every dollar spent. Perfect wedding!”
JLynn & Jeff | April 11, 2014
“Thank you very much… we enjoyed our wedding day so very much! Our families and friends say it was such a gorgeous wedding!! The pictures will be stunning, no doubt, with such beautiful scenery! The décor, flowers and colors were perfect! You are excellent at what you do and we are very grateful to have had you guiding us… We truly appreciate you and all you’ve done.
Thank you to you and your staff for making our day so special… the food was absolutely incredible and everyone at Cili was so nice, helpful, thoughtful and fun throughout the entire planning process… Our Mom, Robbie, can’t stop talking about the staff… she says you all need to have someone do an article in a magazine about Cili… and she’s a good critic!”

Tirza & Giri | May 17, 2014
“The service was amazing, the venue and the decorations looked beautiful, the DJ was outstanding and the staff was outstanding. I can’t even put my words together to try and explain how amazing everything was. All my guests raved about the venue, the décor, the service and, of course, the FOOD. They were blown away by the food and the CAKE!!! Everyone was saying it was the best food they have ever eaten at a wedding. And everyone said it was the BEST wedding they have ever been to. I mean, the list goes on and on.”
Holly & Charles | September 27, 2014
“Thanks so much, we can’t stop talking about how much fun our wedding day was. We are planning a vow renewal! Everyone keeps telling me how beautiful the venue was. They felt like they were in Hawaii or some other place, not Vegas. The service was awesome and everyone felt pampered. I think some want to get married there! We loved every moment and everyone had fun; I want to do it all over again!”
Jayne & James | September 17, 2014
“A BIG THANK YOU again for making our day so special and fantastic, and for helping it all run so smoothly! The day was super and we were blessed with the weather. All the staff was super, friendly and efficient and we couldn’t have wished for anything better. The food, aaaaaaaahhhhhhh, so lovely, and the cakes were gorgeous, too. My dad told me that one of the staff said to him that they do many weddings, but this one was one of the best… which meant a lot! Thanks a million again and, as we both love Vegas so much and me working in the business, we definitely plan to be back at some stage and will no doubt visit you again for lunch at Cili and even take in a few holes at the wonderful Bali Hai. Talk soon and, as we say in Ireland, Slainte (Cheers)!!”
Rachel & Andy | May 2, 2014
“We are so overwhelmingly grateful for your dedication to making our wedding day everything we had imagined. The entire experience was stress-free and we really felt like guests ourselves that night! Our cake, flowers, food, the team… it was all fabulous! We can’t say thank you enough. THANK YOU!”
Karen | Mother of the Bride | May 2, 2014
“I just wanted to thank you and all the staff at Bali Hai and Cili for all you did to make Rachel and Andy’s wedding PERFECT! It was amazing! Everything went so smoothly, and everyone enjoyed it tremendously… especially Rachel and Andy. It was everything they had hoped for and so much more! “The food was awesome,” I kept hearing that all night and the next day! I was so pleased with the DJ, too… loved how he got the guests involved in the party! The flowers were beautiful, the room looked incredible. I just cannot thank you enough for all you did coordinating everything… thank you, thank you, thank you!”
Beana & Mario | October 10, 2014
“I wanted to THANK YOU first and foremost for being so absolutely wonderful during our whole wedding planning process! You were always on top of it and fast to respond to all of our emails and the day could not have been more perfect! From the bouquets to the boutonnieres to the entire room set-up and flowers and cake and food (I could go on and on!), it was absolutely beautiful! I had multiple people tell me that it was the best “wedding reception” food that they have ever eaten, and I definitely agree. The level of service was phenomenal as well! In fact, I never even went to the bar once because there was always a drink in front of me! Haha! Thank you again so very much for everything!”
Sarah & Stephen | September 30, 2014
“You did such an amazing job in the whole build-up, and the big day exceeded all of our expectations. Everyone is still raving about the venue, the food, the endless supply of booze, the laughter and dancing. Thank you so much for being such an important part of our big day, we won’t forget how special you made it for us.”
Alyssa & Joel | November 15, 2014
“Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding perfect. Everything was exactly how we hoped it would be from the flowers, cake, set up to ceremony and reception. All of our guests commented on how beautiful the venue was and the amazing food. We appreciate all your help over the past several months and your patience with our rowdy bridal party. We could not have asked for a more perfect wedding! Thank you!”
Marjorie | Mother of the Bride | November 15, 2014
“Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how overjoyed we were with the wedding! You did a fabulous job putting things in order and keeping Alyssa and us on track leading up to the day and then on the wedding day. Everything was perfect. I loved the food, the flowers were beautiful and the cakes were soooo good!!! Thank you so much! The dance floor stayed packed all night, and it was just the most wonderful night Joel and Alyssa could have asked for! Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
