For my wife's birthday I was having a house party with 35-40 ppl (in my soma apartment). To add a little special touch, I thought it would be fun to have a professional bartender. But then I was lucky enough to come across Daniel. He was outstanding and the sole reason the party was such a hit! He showed up with a portable bar setup and a complete kit of supplies. He had a printed menu of his recipes and was super organized about everything. He had shared a list with me of liquor and supplies to buy beforehand. He was super understanding of the timings and handled a large crowd with extreme ease. Am definitely going to invite him again.

Yvonne and her bartenders (we had 3 and one barback at our wedding) were awesome!!! Yvonne had several other events on that day but not to worry as her crew were amazing as well. As soon as I spoke with her about the event and she gave us her suggestions, her experience and knowledge showed and we immediately decided to hire At Your Service. Would highly recommend!!

We had 2 bartenders work an 80 person event at our home. Our experience from start to finish was extremely professional. They guided us on everything from how much alcohol to buy to how many staffers we needed to hire. I can highly recommend them.

Alejandro was very professional and easy to work with the entire time leading up to the party and during. He helped come up with a cocktail menu and all of them were hits at the party. Easy to reach and answered all my questions in a timely manner.

I had a rehearsal dinner on Friday and reception on Saturday. Both required bartenders. TreVhon worked the rehearsal dinner well. He responded quickly to our requests and made the evening smooth. Armando worked the reception. He was exceptional. He worked all the tables and made sure everyone had a full glass. Highly recommend. Thanks gentleman for your fine work!

Michael is 5 stars in all aspects. I needed a bartender for my husband's office party. He was easily reachable by text/email with all my questions pre party. Michael even made a special butter rum for one of our signature drinks. Very professional, easy to talk to and engaging to all the guests. During the "down" time he would help toss cups and clean up without me even asking. I already hired him again for our next party. I wish I had met him sooner! He does event planning, flower arrangements, home organization and who knows what else. Hire him for a job well done and someone you can depend on.

Love On the Rocks! & so do my clients... I'm a private chef /caterer whose clients often request bartending to supplement food service. I've outsourced bartending for a good number of private and corporate occasions to OTR, and their bartenders, particularly Matt and David, have delivered both delicious drinks + impeccable service. In addition to being talented barkeepers, they're just genuinely stellar guys who can be trusted and are reliable. They're also keen on developing customized cocktails for your event & providing grocery lists complete with ingredients & quantities based on number of guests. I highly recommend On the Rocks for your next soirée!

The bartender that came was very friendly and I appreciate the job she did. However I felt she was either very inexperienced or not that motivated. It took her almost an hour before she really got around to making drinks, at which point people seemed to be ordering them just to help her along. Then I realized that some of the drinks were not looking pretty at all, and it turned out that one of the three recipes I had sent beforehand didn't print out all the way. Later that night I also noticed the simple syrup was barely used, making me think that the second drink was not prepared right, which everyone said was "too strong".. basically was not sweet enough. Point is, she should have tested her drinks before giving them out, and at minimum verified that they resembled the photos. She should also know what blue curaçao is and how to pronounce it before telling guests. And finally, other more experienced bartenders took initiative to find needed ingredients in the cabinet rather than stop me from hosting every 10 minutes to find them. Overall, this company offered 4 hours of service when I only asked for 3, and came prepared with garnishes which is a pretty big time saver. If this had been a basic serve drinks kind of affair, it would have been perfectly fine.

Vic is the BEST Bartender that I have experienced so far. His drinks are very refreshing as he uses all fresh organic ingredients and fruits. I was one the guest at last weekend's Birthday party and I can say that everyone got fan of all his cocktail drinks. I have already Pre-booked him for my Birthday in July. :) Looking forward to it and I am very excited that I found him. I will highly recommend his service to all my friends and family before he gets booked for future dates. Ashley

I plan corporate b2b events for event professionals, it's a hard task to impress those that are always looking to impress their audiences. I stumbled across sharpshooter and after using them the first time, I quickly booked them for another event. They offer cocktails and service that make you feel as though you are sitting in a fancy cocktail bar, watching the mixologist work their magic. From dry iced punch bowls to carefully crafted concoctions to beautiful presentations presented with a smile, Sharpshooter easily beats out all competitive bartenders I have used in my career.

Jeremy makes amazing cocktails tasted as good as those I paid $12+ each at the bar! And the hourly rate for his service is lower compared to most other bartenders. Great value!

I was recently injured and needed help making up for a rather disappointing birthday experience for my wife. Normally, I would prepare some ridiculous meal for her, do all the shopping, cleaning, etc., but this year I was physically unable. I wanted to make up for that, I wanted it to be a surprise, and taking her out to dinner just didn't seem like enough. I posted my situation on Thumbtack and Julian responded within 10 minutes. He offered two completely different dinner ideas, one American BBQ inspired and one Thai inspired. Considering we still have a fridge full of turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, etc., I was thrilled to see Julian throw out an option that was so different than the food we had been eating. From the very beginning, Julian was super enthusiastic, and he really dove head first into the dinner plan. He was very communicative while shopping and didn't hesitate to take charge and throw ideas out there. I was happy to let him go for it and definitely was not disappointed with the results. He cooked an amazing Thai themed meal that was so refreshingly different, and he seemed to genuinely enjoy making it for us. Julian was on time and professional (but still casual enough given the intimate setting). He was very communicative and responsive leading up to the event, and he seemed perfectly at home in our kitchen within minutes of arriving. My impression of Julian is that he is a workhorse and someone who is lucky enough to be doing what he loves. He was absolutely the perfect fit for this project, and my wife and I would consider hiring Julian again for any catered event, big or small. Thanks again!
