  • Thank you for an absolutely perfect party last night! The food was delicious, and the service outstanding. I can't remember the last time I enjoyed my own party, and didn't finish the night exhausted. And did I say that the food was fantastic?! Thank you, thank you!

  • You both really make our party great and I mean that sincerely. Without you there, it’s just a bunch of middle-aged ugly people getting slightly better looking as the night goes on. We love you guys!

  • Theo and Melissa not only dazzled us with their menu and food, they were an absolute delight to have onsite at our wedding. They listened to what we wanted our dream wedding dinner to be — and made it a magical reality.
