My husband and I hosted a rehearsal dinner for 90 of our family members and friends. I cant say enough about Patricia... Zutman and her staff! The venue was perfect for our special event! Patricia is AMAZING! She was available and attentive through the entire process, from the very beginning, even before our commitment to the venue up until the very end of the event. She is so patient, helpful, resourceful, and on point with email responses. I knew i could reach out to Patricia at any time and she would respond almost immediately. Our event couldn't have gone any smoother thanks to her and her staff! I cant thank you enough Patricia!read more

We recently held my retirement party at the Buffalo Rose, in Golden. We reserved the outside, patio area, and it made a... perfect spot for a party of 50-60. My daughters planned the party and found the event manager easy to work with and very responsive. The party went off without a hitch and everyone had so much fun. The food was delicious, many of our guests were raving about the tostadas and pesto pumpkin pastries! The fried macaroni and cheese was quite decadent as well! Our two waitresses were not only responsive to our guests, but also just great gals. They were quick to fill orders and kept the food coming as people were eating. Truly the Buffalo Rose exceeded our expectations and we send a huge thank you to them!read more

We had our wedding at The Rose with All Four Seasons Events and it couldn’t have been a better experience. Such a... beautiful venue and an amazing location. I cannot say enough about the incredible catering manager, bartenders, and other staff. We have not stopped thinking about the food. My mouth is literally watering as I think about the fried Mac n cheese sticks we served as appetizers and the southwestern buffer we had for dinner. It rained on our wedding day but luckily The Rose has the beautiful State Room that we used for many of our photos. More than anything, I have to thank the event coordinator, Patricia Zutman, who thought of every single detail and made the day run so smoothly. She is so organized and I can’t believe how fast her email response time always was. Patricia solved every crisis with ease and was incredibly supportive of all the personal touches we wanted to include. She made planning a wedding from out of state (and during a pandemic) so much less stressful and I couldn’t have done it without her. Our guests raved about the entire event and The Rose will always hold a special place in our hearts.read more

We had a small wedding reception at The Rose and we are so happy with our experience. We worked with Patricia... throughout the entire process, and she did an amazing job. She was fast to respond to literally every single email I sent. She was thorough, and provided lots of options and suggestions. Truly amazing customer service. The venue was awesome. It is in a great location. The venue was clean and perfectly set up when we arrived. We had lots of compliments on the food. One person even said it was the best wedding food they've ever had. We also received compliments on the drinks, service, and the building and interior itself. The evening couldn't have been better!read more

My husband and I had our wedding reception at the Buffalo Rose event center with the help of Patricia Zutman and All... Four Seasons Events planning (which we got courtesy of booking with the Buffalo Rose). We could not have been happier with how the wedding celebration turned out. Patricia was so easy to work with and we loved how transparent all the pricing and expectations were through her and the Buffalo Rose. Planning and celebrating a wedding during COVID craziness has been so challenging-- but Patricia was an excellent guide through the chaos. She always kept us up to date with all the rules and regulations and updated us about timelines and pricing should we choose to postpone and re-schedule. We ended up forging ahead and never did try to reschedule; and were fortunate enough to have all of our desired guests be a part of our celebration.The Buffalo Rose with All Four Seasons Events was able to accommodate almost everything, and provide recommendations for things they did not provide (Such as decorations, cakes, transportation etc.) Buffalo Rose catered the food for the event- which turned out delicious. They were also able to coordinate our other vendors (lighting and drapery, floral, cake etc.) to ensure everything was set up and taken down smoothly. Patricia did an excellent job guiding my husband and I through the wedding planning process and the day of made sure we kept our wedding on schedule to make sure that we had time for all the planned special moments.The only thing we would advise other couples to keep in mind when planning concerned the food. While it did turn out delicious, it was not the same as when we had our tasting... My husband and I had been blown away when we had our tasting at how fresh and well prepared all the food had been. Obviously cooking 4 portions of food to taste is different than preparing enough for a group of 140. So we were a little disappointed the food was not as good and fresh as it had been when we had our tasting. However, our guests still enjoyed everything and we wouldn't have done anything differently in the end.All in all would highly recommend. Thank you to the Buffalo Rose and Patricia, with All Four Seasons Events for helping make our day so magical. It was a celebration we and our guests will always remember.read more

We recently had our wedding at The Rose in Golden and it was everything that we could ask for. The venue was able to... accommodate the amount of guests that we wanted and with the historic aspect left and the classy remodeling that was completed a couple years ago it was perfect! It was important for us to have a place with enough space to make people comfortable as well as big bars! The stateroom upstairs is extra but in our opinion way worth it! The pricing was some of the best that we were able to find for the venue that included food, alcohol, table linens, etc. The food was amazing and fresh and they accommodated our request to have some of the appetizers served as late night snacks after you’re hungry from dancing and drinking some beverages. The staff was on point and had everything out timely and was very courteous. They also were very quick with their turn around time on the room since we did both our ceremony as well as we the reception there! Patricia who headed the wedding planning for The Rose was also a bonus! She was amazing to work with and had her T’s crossed and I’s dotted so nothing slipped through the cracks which is needed if you are a bride like I was with a million different things going on. Overall I would 100% recommend The Rose to anyone that is looking for a gem to get married at in Colorado!read more

The Rose is the perfect place to host your event or wedding! The venue is beautiful with lots of historical charm and... staff went above and beyond our expectations to host our wedding even as Golden got two feet of snow! Staff members were professional and polite and we so enjoyed the food - having in-house catering will make your life much easier!Patricia, the event coordinator, made wedding planning a breeze and was very helpful on the day of (she even took it upon herself to give me an encouraging pep talk after I arrived covered in snow and having just learned that me hair and makeup artist canceled last minute). Despite all the craziness, we had a truly magical wedding! Thank you everyone at The Rose Event Center!read more

We had our rehearsal dinner/social at The Rose in September and it was amazing. The venue and staff was extremely... professional and accommodating during these challenging Covid times and made the night feel "normal" and stress free. One of our favorite aspects was they put our names on the marquee which was great for pictures and letting the guest know where the venue is. Would highly recommend to anyone hosting an event or party and will definitely be using again.read more

The Rose Event Center was the perfect space to celebrate our wedding. The classy feel of the building itself, paired... with the amazing service from the staff made it a warm and welcoming place to gather with our friends and family. And with the precautions in place due to the pandemic, we were able to have the tables properly distanced, the food served safely by professional staff, and the feeling of being in a clean and well-cared-for space. Our guests loved the venue, and it made for the most beautiful photos that we’ll enjoy for many years to come.read more

When I saw the renovations to The Rose, I knew that it was the venue I wanted to host my wedding at. After meeting... Patricia from All Four Seasons Event, their in-house wedding coordinator (!!!) and touring the place the decision was final, it was our one and only venue tour.The planning process was so easy since, 1. you get to work with Patricia who is the best wedding coordinator and 2. it's an all-inclusive venue. All-inclusive might seem scary since you don't get as many options as you would if you sourced everything from 18 million different vendors, but the convenience is 100% worth it and The Rose has curated an amazing selection of furniture, decor, linens, booze, and food.What's more is, just because it's all-inclusive doesn't mean you're locked into their preset offerings. We custom designed a menu to be served at interactive stations that guests could visit throughout the night instead of a traditional dinner service.Unfortunately due to the pandemic we had to postpone our wedding (two weeks before it was set to happen) and then recently made the decision to cancel our early 2021 wedding reception. The Rose staff was amazing throughout the whole process and we are so grateful for their amazing team.Since we were so close to our actual event we had completed the final walkthrough, food tasting, and even a little wine tasting they threw together for us. The food was AMAZING and I will dream in anguish about the mac and cheese sticks until they put them on the restaurant menu. After the final walk-through, I was so confident that our event was going to go off without a hitch. So it is what it is, but I would 100% recommend The Rose to any couple looking for a venue in the beautiful Historic Golden, CO.read more

In Planning a party at Buffalo Rose, I found the event coordinator, Patricia, to be a breath of fresh air. I could... tell the moment we met that we would enjoy working with her and her staff. Our family has a number of food allergies. Patricia understood the importance of crafting a menu that was allergen-free for all of us, that our guests would enjoy, and in the party theme!Sadly, COVID-19 has put a damper on our party plans. Even as we found ourselves in the position of having to cancel our party, Patricia and her team have risen to the occasion. They handled the cancellation in a very kind and understanding manor. I was prepared to forfeit our deposit, but they decided to return the deposit to us, given the circumstance.This organization is a pleasure to work with and we will look to them for planning future events. Buffalo Rose exceeded our expectations.read more
