THANK YOU to Chef and the entire crew for such a wonderful evening.

BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION

The party was fabulous! Everyone is still talking about the food. It was simply delicious!

 

I was really pleased with the staff. The ladies who prepped/cooked the food were spot on. They came in and took over the kitchen. It was so nice to sit back and let them do their thing. They were totally self sufficient!
