On time, enthusiastic, professional, arrived with more stuff even than we had agreed to. Required no direction during the event. A fabulous bartender to have at my wedding.
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!!
I am so happy that I hired Andrew and his team for our event. They arrived right on time, set up quickly, served fantastic drinks, and all of bartenders had fun, engaging personalities that really added to the ambiance of the night. I will definitely hire again- they're the best!
Alejandro is so awesome! He helped me plan and select the signature drinks, beer, and wine menu for my wedding reception for 75 guests. He has a very friendly and professional disposition and single handedly bartended my event and made it look easy even at peak times. Everyone loved the signature drinks and loved talking to him. He also replenished the waters, drinks, cleaned the glassware and threw out the empty bottles in a regimented and efficient manner while holding down the bar! It was truly impressive. I will not hesitate to hire him again.
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 showed up on time, stayed late, and made sure all 80+ people at my wedding were served promptly. He was able to handle a crowd of drinkers by himself and the drinks were very good.
They bartender my wedding. They were very personable and did everything they could to make sure me and the groom were having a good time. The cocktails were amazing!
Karoline and Diane did an incredible job helping us out at our wedding. Not only did they do a phenomenal job at the reception helping out our family and friends, but before the wedding they helped us out determining how much alcohol, beer and wine to purchase. It was a huge help in preparing for our wedding. I would highly recommend Karoline and her team to anyone looking for bartenders for their wedding or a party.
From start to finish, it was truly a pleasure to work with Alisa and her top notch team at Passionate Plates. We appreciated her flexibility and cooperation during the planning stages to prepare food for 60 guests at our wedding in Sonoma on Sept. 17, 2016. I am especially grateful for finding such a high quality caterer such as Alisa's Passionate Plates via the Thumbtack website after our caterer had to back out just two months before our wedding due to medical reasons. Foremost, we had nothing but rave reviews from our wedding guests for the high quality of the food, including choices for seafood lovers, steak, chicken, vegetarians and wonderful side dishes. On the big day, her team arrived at the wedding venue to prepare everything fresh and perfectly on schedule based on the timing of the service for a lunch reception. We opted for a more simple buffet style and this worked out extremely well for us. In addition, her team did a superb job with general execution in both the high quality of the food, clearing the tables and leaving the venue's kitchen and table settings sparkling. I have rated Passionate Plates "5 stars" but would give them higher, if possible! Rest assured, you will not regret working with Alisa and her first class team at Passionate Plate.
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!
It was a pleasure having Dustin bartend our wedding reception. He was responsive and helped make recommendations on what additional items would make good drinks for the guests. He came a little early to set up, and the guests had nothing but good things to say about his service. I'd hire Dustin again, and highly recommend him to anyone else.
We used Able Bartenders at one of our luxury communities and their staff was very friendly. Our residents were very happy with the service and we were please as well. They tended to the needs of the residents and made sure the residents always had a drink. Thank you, your service was greatly appreciated!
We reached out to several beverage caterers for our wedding months before the event, and spoke to a number of them. Kristine was easy to get a hold of, arranging for a set time for us to talk on the phone. She was fun and pleasant to talk to while remaining professional. Her questions about our wedding made it clear she knew what she was doing and even helped us in focusing our vision of what we wanted our beverage service to look like on the big day. After we spoke, she provided a clear write up, including a breakdown of what she would provide and the prices. She worked with us to make sure we would get what we needed within a reasonable budget. She stood above the other beverage caterers in her attention to detail and remembering what we had talked about and needed. Her understanding and experience shone through early on with her understanding of our needs, and her thoughtful questions helped us to anticipate details we had not even considered yet. She was very flexible and was able to work with us as our plan came together and needs changed. On our wedding day, she was on time and ready to work. Her setup was clean and efficient. She and her staff were friendly, professional, hard working, and also fun! Our guests really enjoyed their interactions with her, there was never a line for drinks, and there was no mess left anywhere around our venue during or after. She was an absolute pleasure to work with and was an important part of making our wedding day the huge success that it was. We would gladly work with her again, and look forward to the next opportunity. Thanks Kristine! Bill and Amy
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.
Amazing cocktails and service, these guys really know their stuff! Had Ian and Rosa do our wedding of about 100 guests, and they made everything smooth to picking out cocktails, bringing all mixers, beer, wine, ice, glassware, bar, and water so that we had less to worry about! Would definitely recommend again!
I hired Vic not from Thumbtack but his name was referenced to me by my office colleague who attended the party where he was Bartending. Initially, I was little hesitant as I wasn't sure what type of drinks to keep for my wife's Birthday party. Vic helped me not only with the selection of his awesome drinks but he was also able to get me more than 10-15% discount on alcohol purchase than what I would have gotten from Total Wine. We also took the Hookah for the party and it turned out that everyone loved it!!! It was totally worth going for the combination of Cocktails + Hookah + Alcohol purchase as the package. We had to hardly think about anything as he took care of everything for us. I went ahead and already booked him for the July first weekend. I would highly recommend Vic's service to all my friends for any party! Get the whole package as it's Best deal in the market with quality service!
I was hired as a server for a wedding in Healdsburg, Ca that Tracie catered! The event was flawless and amazingly beautiful! Tracie went above and beyond to ensure the wedding party , guests and staff were well taken care of! Her eye for detail is acute and she is an absolute treasure to work with and for!
We just finished our wedding ceremony and I just had to write this review quickly before we're off to the honeymoon. The bartenders were fantastic and made such awesome drinks!! Thank you so much!
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 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.
