Daniel wasn't perfect. Made delicious drinks, offers more than bartenders typically do with shopping list, drink recommendations, his own bar, and all the AMAZING materials he brings that he makes himself. He made a hibiscus syrup that our guests were crazy about, and cocktails that people couldn't get enough of. I couldn't possibly have asked for more! Definitely will be using him for future events.

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.

I cannot say enough good things about Alejandro. I contacted him 5 days before the event, and he did everything I asked. He was quick to respond, understood what my client needed, and was just absolutely the best! I would highly recommended him for bartending services!

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!

Alisa was hired to cater our wedding of 35 guests at a private residence. She went above and beyond call of duty with cocktails, appetizers, the dinner, and setting up, breaking down the event. She arrived early to set up for both the ceremony and the dinner, and provided the cocktails and beer which received reave reviews from the guests. For the appetizers, she provided polenta bites and bruschetta in keeping with our Italian menu and both were really tasty. The dinner menu consisted of a caesar salad with grilled salmon, tomato bisque, and a cappellacci di zucca; all were truly delicious. She cleaned up the same night, making it easy for us to enjoy the kitchen the next morning for breakfast. If I were to host another event, I would hire Alisa in a heartbeat.

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 bartender for my small house party and it was so nice not having to worry about the bar all night. He was on time, stayed until late, and cleaned up. He was perfectly friendly and welcoming to my guests. I'm hiring him for my next party, for sure.

Angelica was great! Friendly and professional. I appreciated how efffiect and knowledgeable she was in her skill of setting up, mixing and breaking down the bar area with little to no direction. She completed my team of servers and bartenders and helped make my catering service a big success! I will definitely use her again for future catering jobs! Thanks again Angelica!

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.

Love the name of Vic's Bar - Mystical Mint! I will postpone the party if I had to but will never going to hire any other Bartender other than Vic. I am serious! His passion towards bartending shows in his drinks. He uses fresh and organic ingredients which really impressed me and my friends yesterday. Thanks Vic for making the party fun with your signature cocktails. Please keep your Thanksgiving weekend and New Year eve reserved for me!

Zach was excellent! We had a total of 6 private cooking lessons over the course of 4 months. Each time he came to our house for a couple hours as we created a wide variety of my favorite dishes from local restaurants in Sonoma. He taught us ways to modify a meal so you could have more variety with the same dish by just changing a few spices or ingredients, what to look for to know you're on the right track or how to "save a dish" if you veer off, and different techniques that were really useful. I'd highly recommend him!

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!!
