“I just wanted to send you a heartfelt thanks and gratitude for a wonderful event. The food was FABULOUS!!”

“Everything was so gosh darn delicious and as I suspected the truffle risotto and fish were an absolute hit! The lamb was absolutely delicious as well. The food was PERFECT! All the guests were full and there was so much food left over!

The servers were so fantastic as well - extremely professional, courteous and considerate. Antonio and Peter were so great.

Thank you so much for making Andrew's birthday such a memorable event for us. We will never forget it. Everything was just perfect. Everyone was asking the name of the catering company we used, so I am sure you will be receiving some calls sometime in the near future. :)

Again, my heartfelt thanks!!”
