The night was great, particularly thanks to the great food, wait staff and chef! The staff went above and beyond to get us organized and particularly when a storm came through and we had to move the party inside! The guests were very complementary about both the food and staff and a number asked where we sourced the catering. The staff even got a round of applause for their work as they left! So thanks for making the whole process a breeze!

I wanted to say how pleased I was with everything you all did to make my party a big success. From when Hermann brought the food and equipment, right through to the final clean up by your professional and oh so friendly and efficient wait staff.  Was so great having the catering covered by you, the food was great, the waiters were brilliant and I particularly liked how they were concerned for the safety of my guests when they put towels down on the floor to capture any water leaks from our drinks tubs - brilliant.  I will certainly recommend you to everyone I know near and far.   Catherine 10th of September 2016
