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.

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.

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!

Dustin was amazing! Prior to our event he made a drink list and let me know exactly what I would need to have for the night. He was very responsive to any questions that I had. He was at our event early, and even stayed late to serve our guests. He did such a great job with all of our guests and made ALL of the popular drinks! He was very professional. I would highly recommend him to bartend your next event! We will use him again!

We hired Flavors of Magick to bartend at my husband's 50's birthday party. The experience was exceptional from start to finish. When I stated that we were having a tiki theme, Stacy was enthusiastic about the prospect and helped up to build an exciting and varied drink menu. She checked in regularly leading up to the event and I was comfortable and confident that all was going to go smoothly. The day of the event she (and her helper) showed up in plenty of time to help with the bar setup and to review the drink menus and get everything settled before guests arrived. We had a good sized crowd of 'professional drinkers' and Stacy and her crew kept them all from going thirsty as well as kept them entertained with her amazing attitude. She executed the complicated tiki drinks with style and aplomb - and improvised as needed. When the party didn't 'wind down' when we expected she checked in with me, and we were able to easily negotiate an extension her original quote so that I could continue to enjoy the party and our guests without having to worry about the bar and drinks. Overall I am beyond pleased with the experience. I would use Flavors of Magick again, and would whole hardheartedly recommend them to anyone looking for bartenders in the future.

We hired Zach for a family reunion dinner at a cabin we were renting in Lake Tahoe. Although everybody enjoyed the food he prepared, it wasn't ready until about 1 hour after we said we wanted to eat. The dessert also took longer than expected to be ready. Zach was very professional and kind throughout his time at our cabin. Our only complaint was the timing of the meal.

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.

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

Tracie designed & presented an extraordinarily successful afternoon/evening BBQ. We had friends from Darjeeling visiting and wanted them to experience a true American BBQ--Tracie selected and prepared the food--shrimp & tomato appetizers, ribs, chicken & salmon, cole slaw & potato salad, finished with delicious pies--arranged the tables and settings, right down to the checkered tablecloths & mason jar flower settings, and hired professional serving and cleaning staff. No question, Tracie caters every future event

I have tested many services in the area and usually we have our set bartenders. They weren't available for my wife's birthday party, so I contacted Josh and his team. They are responsive, cheaper than our old bartenders, on time, professional, and extremely courteous. I think my wife and I have found ourselves a new favorite bartender and we will definitely be booking them for our future happenings.

I have had Up & Under cater several special occasions of mine. They're my go-to. Nate (the owner) was willing to work with me extensively on what the menu was going to be like and always stayed within budget. I think he outdoes himself every time! The food just gets better and better. For one party, I completely forgot to buy champagne on my own like we had agreed to. He was able to provide champagne last minute and saved the party. I always request my favorite party planner (Megan) as she is so reliable, easy-going, and is a great bartender during the event. I suggest you do the same. I have recommended Up and Under to my friends, and will continue to do so for my special events.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
