" I had to drop you a note to tell you about our wonderful holiday reception yesterday catered by Chef by Request. I contacted Jake Jacobson a couple of weeks ago in a panic to see if he could help me out of a difficult situation. We were trying to work with a preferred vendor at the facility we contracted for our annual holiday reception. They were clearly not interested in working with us after several weeks of discussions, so we decided to look elsewhere. Iíve worked with Jake on the annual GE Community Day and several other corporate events and kept my fingers crossed that he would be available to help us. He jumped into action and had a menu with pricing in my hands within the hour, adding several lovely touches I hadnít even considered. When I explained to our CEO that we were going to use Chef by Request, he was delighted because he knows Jake and the quality of your food and great service.
We had over 150 employees at our reception yesterday and EVERYONE raved about the delicious food, beautiful displays and amazing service. The staff was attentive, professional, friendly and just overall wonderful! Jake and the team made our team look like rock starts, and for that I am forever grateful!
I have peace of mind when I work with Jake knowing that he will take care of everything. You are lucky to have such a talented staff with Jake and team and want to thank everyone for a tremendous experience!"
"I must take the time to thank you and your entire team for a fantastic job. The food was incredible Ė compliments to the chef(s) and their teams. Darian, of course, was the best! His presentation of the entire meal makes it all the more enjoyable and delicious. Thank you and I look forward to working with you on our next event/meeting."
"Thank you so much for the wonderfully catered event! From your server, bartender to the food it couldn't have worked out any better! My only regret is that I didn't ask for some of those delicious kabobs to go. They were awesome!!"
"I had a choice of many different caterers, and to be honest, the presentation and service that you provided from our first meeting, simply outshone anyone I spoke with! ... The day of the event, the entire staff was prompt, unbelievably courteous and an absolute pleasure to work with. Every detail of the set up was impeccable, and I am truly very particular! The attention to detail was just beautiful and our venue looked fantastic! ... And the food....it was absolutely fantastic!! I heard nothing but rave reviews the entire evening, and even today, our staff continues to be amazed at the quality, quantity and presentation. It was everything that I hoped it would be and beyond."
"I just have to say that your team did an AMAZING job last night. Once the event got started, I didn't even have to think about the food or beverages again! There was someone from the team available at all times and I don't think any of our guests had to wait or ask for anything. AWESOME JOB! I also appreciate all of the assistance you provided me directly prior to the event. You did a great job of answering my questions and helping me make effective choices with regard to food, beverages and guests. Oh, and you were absolutely right about the almond-stuffed, bacon-wrapped dates. They were a huge hit!"
"Thank you for a fabulous event. Your food and
presentation were top notch! The staff was incredible!"
"Thanks so much for helping to make our event successful Tuesday night with such wonderful food and a great presentation! I heard one of our Board Members remark about how good the food is. Please extend my thanks to your excellent staff. Also here are some additional passes for you and them."
"Your dinner was as artistic as the finest paintings in this museum. Wow!"
"Thank you for your beautiful display. It has been the talk of The Arboretum!"
"I just wanted to thank you for the great job you and your staff did for our picnic Luncheon on the Riverwalk. I've heard nothing but good things about the event and how delicious the food was. You are to be complemented for maintaining the quality level you did for serving so many people."
"The dinner was superb!"
"On behalf of the entire University, we want to thank you for an outstanding job last night. Everything was absolutely perfect, everyone said it was the best food ever...not your typical fare of mini hot dogs and chicken wings. Your staff was wonderful, everyone complimented them. They were very professional! Absolute rave reviews."
