CLIENT REVIEWS

It’s very easy to write a review of your service. The food was great, the level of service and completeness was amazing. From the moment you all showed up, you handled everything. First you brought EVERYTHING you needed. You asked for nothing from us. I was happy to take my own trash out to make way for you, but you brought your own cans and bags. To say I was surprised was an understatement, but it didn’t stop there. You filled the kitchen, boxes of supplies, and just got to work. It seemed overwhelming to me, but fortunately I wasn’t doing any of the work. I enjoyed chatting with you as well as the staff. Everyone was pleasant and happy. While you were there for 10 hours, the team was as friendly at the end of the night as at the beginning of the day. And the kitchen was spotless when you were done. What a pleasure.

 

Now onto the food. It was beautiful and there was more than enough for everyone, but not so much that we couldn’t finish it as leftovers. Fortunately we didn’t have to throw anything out. Originally, the proposed menu was a little light in the number of dishes served, but you were more than accommodating when we added a few other options like a salad and rice. The appetizers were delicious and beautifully presented. They included two baked brie options, a delicious salmon on a greenhouse cucumber and other choices. We then went onto tasty beef tenderloin with a Chimichurri sauce, a salad, lime-cilantro rice and some glazed carrots. The dessert was also amazing. We supplemented that, but your lemon bars were to die for. They were so tasty and tart, just the way I like them.

 

At the end of the night, the kitchen was spotless; the dishes were washed or loaded in the dishwasher. All that we had to do was turnout the lights and relax for a few minutes before going to bed. In all it was an amazing night for all of us because we enjoyed the party and our guests without a care in the world about the kitchen and the meal even when we upped the number at the last minute. I would definitely use your Menu For You for another similar event and would enthusiastically recommend you to anyone looking for a lovely catered dinner party.

Just to sum it up, my husband said, “We are never using anyone else but Vahé that was the best, easiest dinner party we have ever thrown!” The arctic char and the cauliflower puree were the standout items of the night and my personal fave was the dessert! The evening went so smoothly and was so tasty and the presentation amazing!!!  What a treat to have a clean kitchen as well.  Absolutely wonderful in every aspect.
