Daniel was amazing from beginning to end. He walked me through some signature drink choices, sent me a shopping list, showed up on time, and was amazing throughout the party. He took the time to get to know some of my guests, was super friendly, while also remaining respectful and professional. Would definitely hire him again and would recommend hiring him for any event!
My wife and I used At Your Service for our wedding and had an outstanding experience with them - we would both highly recommend the service. Yvonne was incredibly helpful from the first time that we talked to her and all the way up to our event. She supplied detailed recommendations for how we should stock our bar based on our event and guest types and was available to talk to at a moment's notice. We also appreciated her candor and honesty and "no hidden charges" attitude which is something that cannot be said for a lot of other bartending services out there. Our event went off without a hitch because Yvonne and her staff were so friendly to our guests and efficient at pouring drinks. Though we only had two bars for 150 people, there was never a long line and our guests kept coming up to us to praise the bar staff we had. Highly recommended!!
Andrew's team member Gillian did a great job staffing my 12-person dinner party. She was prompt, had a sharp outfit on, and did a great job attending to my guests, warming and setting up the food, serving and clearing, pouring wine, and cleaning up. It made the party so much more enjoyable for me, to be with my guests instead of in the kitchen!
Taqueria Cazadores helped make our party of about 100 guests festive and amazing. So many guests stopped me to comment on the delicious food. Evan did our bar service and was great. He really took care of us and made sure we had everything we needed -- very important at a location that didn't have any in-house staff. and with our event being held during an unprecedented heat wave! Evan and his crew made sure we stayed stocked on ice, sodas and beer -- sending staff out when we began to run low. He made sure everything ran smoothly so we could just relax enjoy the party -- and, of course, the delicious food.
Thank you to Alejandro & his assistant from Mix Share & Stir for providing their services for sisters & brother in-laws party. Alejandro was fast in answering and responding to all my questions. He sent me a cocktail menu to select the type of cocktails/drink that we would like to serve and assisted me in calculating what I needed to purchase and the quantity. Prior to the event Alejandro checked-in to see if there was anything that we needed assistance with and on the day of the event everything went smoothly. My sister and all of our guest were happy with their services. I hope to be able to use Mix Share & Stir for any future parties/events.
Michael was great! Definitely recommend hiring him for your event.
Event staff was great. Thank you!
Jerremi and Camille are not just amazing people but have really outdone themselves with Liquid Happiness. Their waitstaff are loyal and passionate about what they do and really want to help make the event a success. We could not have done this event without them and thank them for participating with us! The team at StarChefs hopes to work with you again soon!
Although we had to cancel our event, Karoline was so helpful and customer service driven from day 1. We communicated via Thumbtack and phone over a few weeks and her follow-up and attention to detail are top-notch. If we ever have an event Karoline will be our first choice. We were disapointed to cancel, but she was so understanding and a really good sport. We highly recommend Karoline as dedicated professional.
Alisa was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. She immediately understood what I was looking for in catering my event. The food was outstanding! We will hire her again in a heartbeat.
We hired On the Rocks for a office event for about 15-20 people. It was short notice but David was super helpful and responsive. The actual day of the happy hour went seamlessly. The cocktails were great and everyone loved the service. Would hire them again for another event in a heartbeat. Thank you for a stress-free event!
Dustin was very responsive and professional! He offered a detailed shopping list and provided suggestions as to what drinks we could serve our guests. Even though we ended up going with a company closer to the location of the event, we would be more than happy to hire Dustin for a different occasion.
Bill and Able Bartenders did our wedding reception and they were fantastic. There motto of "Yes we can" is not just words. They truly delivered on everything. The service for our guests and the cocktails were fantastic. When your guests can you days later letting you know that the bar was great we know that we got the right provider for our event. Cannot express how well the service was and how happy we are by going with Able Bartenders. Definitely will be using them again. Extremely satisfied customer...
We hired Kristine and her team to bartender our wedding reception. From day 1 Kristine was positive, responsive, helpful and enthusiastic. When it came time for our event she was on time, quick and friendly. She did an amazing job of setting up our bar station and keeping our guests happy with her fast and friendly service. I would definitely recommend her and her team for anyone looking for an all star bartending team! THANK YOU KRISTINE!
I used Angelica's services for my husband's 40th. She was professional, quick to respond to all my queries and pretty flexible. She was on time for the event. She was also a lot of fun .. and guests loved her. Can't wait to have her at the next event!
5 stars!! We hired Stacey for a small corporate happy hour with a bloody mary bar. She is EXCELLENT and makes great drinks, also has a great personality... hire her for your event!
Vic, the Best Bartender that I have met so far. His cocktail recipes are classic and presentation is awesome! He made lot of effort in preparing all the garnishes before coming to the event. His service was phenomenal. Everyone loved Vic and his drinks. I will recommend his service to all my friends and family. Good Luck Vic! You are a RockStar!! I will see you soon at Kim's Wedding next month
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.
I highly recommend Jennifer to anyone who is looking for an incredibly competent and hard working professional with the expertise and experience to do it all: from bartender, to chef, to party planner and manager. I hired Jennifer to help me with all aspects of hosting Thanksgiving dinner for 20 people, and from the moment she arrived, she hit the ground running and jumped right in. Not only was she able to handle a high volume of work quickly and efficiently (she can hustle!!), she was also able to think on her feet and effectively handle the expected -- and the unexpected (like one of our ovens going out!) -- with ease and a calm, positive disposition. I could count on her to pull off a wonderful event, and I don't know what I would have done without her! If you hire Jennifer to help you with any and all aspects of hosting an event, you won't be disappointed -- she's amazing!!
Food was great! Arrived a bit late so there was added stress but overall event was a success.
Brothers In Law was professional, prompt when on the contracted sight. My interactions with them have always been positive. I was impressed with there customer service, when asked they got the job done. I look to do business with them again.
