August 2014

I thank you so much for your support during our orientation.  I know it was hectic for you with all the updates and last minute changes.  The assistants and everyone talked gave raving reviews on the food.  I was proud!  Just as though I cooked it myself!!   I really, really appreciate your support and the support of all your team at Geppetto Catering!  You all always come through for me!  Thank you again!!!!
Best,
~Darlene

I just wanted to let you know that dinner was a HUGE success! Not only was the filet so yummy, you'd stab your own mother for trying to take a piece of yours, but Mark absolutely raved over the risotto purse! To get a vegetarian excited over food made by a caterer is truly a difficult task. It appears for some, vegetarian is synonymous with "eater of bland and boring foods." It was pretty and yummy! Our guests did everything but lick their plates!
Thanks, again,
 ~Karlyn

Your folks did a great job.  Toby was great to work with.  Everyone enjoyed the food.
~Charlie

We met with 10 caterers before we decided that Geppetto is the right caterer for us. They are the most flexible and creative to work with.
~Anonymous

Turned out awesome- you Rock!!!!!
~April 

Everything was fantastic last night!  Please give Toby a huge kudos for her work throughout the planning and then last night too.  People loved the food of course!  I wish I could say I had some, but that really wasn’t the case.
Thanks,

Dashing off this quick note during the lunch - comments from all around on the presentation and the food and the variety and the YUM.  Ken, another huge Geppetto success!  Many thanks to you and your staff as always!
Kind regards,
~Sabrina

We have heard so many wonderful comments about the food, presentation and service.  Geppetto’s did such a wonderful job catering our party and attending to every detail.  We are so pleased with all you and and everyone at Geppetto’s did to ensure it was a fantastic celebration.
Our biggest thanks!
Take care,
~Tamara

I had raves about the food from last night from some truly picky opinionated people, especially when it comes to food. Thank you.  And your staff was wonderful! If you ever have to be on that boat again.  It surprisingly worked. Most people are concerned with getting a drink when they get on the boat so they aren’t even focusing on the food set up, which was great.  I don’t know that you could away with more food unless the boat accommodated the group with another table, but for our purposes it was perfect. Feedback: People loved the Salmon.
Thank you!!!!
~Carolyn

The event was great on all fronts.  20 attendees, 12 groups represented and a strong desire to stay together as a regional cluster. The food too was amazing. Both dinners were delicious and we had plenty of food with leftovers to take home. Again, thanks for your support at this event and I look forward to working with you in the future.
~Dave

Just wanted to tell you about the farmer market in Hyattsville on Thursdays. Geppetto is a great big PLUS to the offerings. I stopped by 2 weeks ago, I know the quality of foods you offer. got a small Beef brisket, it was all that! could'nt wait for this thursday. got a small pulled pork- another big plus for dinner. I'm hooked. Geppetto's still has it going on!! Happy Father's day to all!
~Arneda 

Your function was fabulous last night....words simply cannot express how great it was. I loved the catering....the table was perfect.

I just had the chance to eat a piece of carrot cake from yesterday’s sustainability luncheon. OMG! That was wonderful! I love carrot cake and that piece ranks in the top two or three. So moist (even a day later) with such light cream cheese icing. DELICIOUS!!!!!
~Nathan

There were left-over sandwiches from the meeting on Wed. and I took one of the roasted vegetable sandwiches and saved it for another day – I ate it today at lunch. That was one of the best I’ve ever had!
~Kathy

Sandi and Orlando were great. Food excellent, as always. Thanks so much for jumping in at the last moment! Great event for Levine too. You do good work!

I really cant thank you enough!!
~Melodi

All I can say is, “Wow!” Everyone was blown away by the spread you all provided us yesterday! I honestly can’t say enough good things about not only the quality of the food, but how perfect it was for the type of event we hosted. We look forward to working with you in the future, and are so grateful to you for helping us impress our clients yesterday!
All our best,
~Shannon

Thank you so very very much for the amazing catering you did for my mother's reception at Arlington national cemetery. Your company, put on an incredible feast for my family of 43. It was beyond incredible! Everything was PERFECT!!!! The tables were beautiful & the food was raved about by everyone! Coming from the West Coast, you took all of my worries away & made my mother's ceremony PERFECT. If you ever need me to speak with anyone I will ALWAYS give you rave reviews.

April 2014

Your meetings are flawless---everything from Marcia Howard’s warm and professional welcome, to the quality of the meeting, to the important networking and the food.  All are exceptional.
~Sally

The food was absolutely delicious!  Thank you. 
~Donna

Just wanted to follow up with you regarding the tasting today.  Thank you so much!! Our CEO loved the food you brought, as did our President – which makes you favorites for all events!  The feedback I received was solely positive.  Specifically people who tried the tasting liked the size of the meats served, the meats on a separate platter from salad greens, and the sandwiches were absolutely amazing.  Not to mention the variety of the foods you brought and dessert options was impressive.  Last but not least, compliments to the chef for the salsa!  You should bottle and sell it at the farmer’s markets if you do not already. Thank you again, this went much better than anticipated from my perspective.  It is difficult for me to find options that please everyone on our executive team, and you all did an outstanding job! 
Sincerely,
~Megan

Thank you so much for a wonderful event! The food was amazing but even better your two servers Isabelle and her helper! Thanks for all of the attention to detail! It turned out so well and everyone was full of complements!
Sincerely,
~Abby and Neil

A really big thank you for the wonderful food you sent yesterday.  We all enjoyed it so much.  I'm a big fan of Geppetto Caterers and will make sure to tell all my friends how terrific you are.

Our lunch yesterday was fantastic! Thank you. The salmon and Asian Beef salads were delicious as was the red bliss potato salad. Everyone was happy with the meal. And your delivery team was right on time, quick to set up and very professional, (as usual) It's always nice to work with your people.

On behalf of my boss and the senior staff at my firm, thank you for a wonderful breakfast this morning. I have received several emails from our staff that the presentation was great and the food was fantastic! Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say THANK YOU for all that you do, it is truly appreciated!
Talk to you soon, have a great day-
~Darnell

THANK YOU and everyone at Geppetto's for an AMAZING event!!! We were so pleased about how everything turned out and we have heard nothing but RAVE reviews from the client, board members and guests about what a great event it was and how fabulous the food was! You were so great throughout the entire process, even opening doors for guests when we had a rush at registration. We can't even begin to tell you how great it was to work with Geppetto's and can't wait for the next event we can work with you on!! Also, it was so nice of you to make sure I had my BBQ fix at the end of the event, it was amazing!!
~Kensey

Thanks Josh to you and your staff! You make this event so seamless and easy for us each year. Your team are great to work with and provide white glove service year after year. I know that we are a small client in the scheme of all the events you do throughout the year, but your team consistently exceed our expectations with service and presentation. Thank you!
Have a great weekend-
~Janelle

Thank you very much for your help with the party. My colleague was very much surprised, and also very pleased with the fact that you pulled through and helped me make the event more affordable. The crab dip was the big hit and after the party many people were commenting that they were sorry they didn’t get any. I had a chance to get some and it was absolutely delicious!
Many, many thanks for helping make the party a HUGE success!
~Teri

Please let your manager(s) and owner(s) know how very pleased and impressed my team was with yesterday’s luncheon. Even the VP was asking for the name of the caterer. Again, from the Angel’s punctuality, the set-up and presentation to the excellent quality, selection and flavor of the food, everything was perfect. The desserts [cake and mini cups and tarts], of course, were the perfect end to a perfect event.
Thank you all!
~Debbi

I have always been so happy with the very prompt and responsive service you & your colleagues provide!

I wanted to inform you that every delivery from Geppettos has been great. Your staff and delivery staff are so courtesy, professional and so helpful. They make my job so much easier. I like doing business with Geppetto.
Best Regards,
~Desiree

Thanks so much for the wonderful food and assistance. Everyone really appreciated the type of variety we had as well as the Gluten Free items. Your suggestions were great – if there would be one thing to cut back on, I would have gotten a smaller veggie tray. Otherwise the event was a huge success.
~Will

Let me express my thanks for all of your support today, the kids loved the food and were excited to have a catered event!! I can’t wait until the next ceremony!!
Enjoy your weekend!!

Many thanks again,
Kind regards,
~Janet

I just wanted to take a minute and let you know how happy we were with the food and services supplied by Geppetto at our banquet Saturday night. The food was excellent, and the staff was outstanding! The gentleman you had working our event could not have represented your company any better. He was polite, courteous, and exceptionally helpful with everything.  He truly went above and beyond to lend a hand whenever he could. Everything was great, and we look forward to using you again next year!
Thanks again,
~Debby

Thank you for your email. It is always such a joy working with you and Josh.  I know that I can sleep comfortably at night knowing that you two will be looking over us and our attendees for our offsite events. Excellent job...we received many compliments on the venues and the food. Thanks again for everything and I look forward to seeing you the next time we are in Washington.
~Mansouria

Thank you for all you did to ensure the success of my dinner party. Last night was wonderful - from beginning to end. The food was delicious and the while the entire menu was very tasty, the guest seemed to comment most on the fillet and the chocolate cake. I am so glad that I decided to get wait staff and Herminia didn't disappoint; she was wonderful. She jumped right in and took charge of the kitchen, using her great instincts to respond to guests needs. She worked diligently and I was able to really enjoy my party which what it's all about. Thanks again.
~Marla

I just have to say, my gluten free box lunch is AMAZING! Thank you so much!! I'm not in the meeting with the others, but I'm sure they will all enjoy theirs as well. Thanks again for such great service, I can always count on Geppetto's!
~Lynn

January 2014

Thank you. Your staff was courteous and professional, and everything seemed to run smoothly with your help. I wanted to thank you and your team for making our first fundraiser in quite some time such a success.
Thank you,
~Andy

I wanted to take a moment and say thank you to you and all your staff for the wonderful food provided yesterday for our company luncheon. As always, everyone was very happy with the food selections and its quality.
Again, thank you and I’m wishing you and all your employees a prosperous New Year.
~Samona

Thank you again for a wonderful evening. The talk throughout the conference has been that they don’t know how I am going to top the venues for next year. I appreciate you showing these venues to me in the first place. The food was delicious again last night. The group thoroughly enjoyed the venue, dinner, and having the first encyclopedia available for viewing. It definitely made the group happy to view the science itself. I received a lovely note today about the group and it was much appreciated. Thanks again for making me look so good. I know I can trust you and your team. It is great to not have to worry about my offsite events.
Take care,
~Linda

You did an amazing job tonight - really top shelf. Thank you!!!!
~Kathy

I just wanted to thank you and your team profusely for running such a great event tonight! We had 50 people show up and they were all truly impressed with the spread that you provided for us.
Thank you again and we can't wait to hold another event with you!
~Carolyn

Congratulations on 25 years of dedicated service to the DC Community. You and your team are a role model for all of us!
Your support of the Phillips Collection these past years is really appreciated by all of us here at the Phillips!
All the best for 2014.
~Keith

Thanks to you, Toby, and your entire team for a great event last night! You all were so great to work with. The group was so nice that even our security guards were commenting on how polite they were! What a treat.
Hope to work with you all again soon!
Thanks again for everything,
~Elise

Once again we are very happy with the job Geppetto Catering has done for our event! Thank you very much. Our students were happy with the box lunches and the variety of selections. Oddly, the gluten-free choices were all taken. We only had about 10 boxes left and most of them were vegan. Something I will have to remember in the future. Your delivery man was on time and very polite. It's a pleasure to work with your team.
Best,
~Tammy

Our program last night was a success. Food and service were impeccable.
Best,
~Ben

Thank you so much for your great service last week, especially in the midst of lots of confusion and last minute changes. We especially appreciated your excellent support on Friday, we received wonderful compliments on the food selection and everyone was very happy with our orientation event overall.
Thanks again!
~Andrea

Maria and I wanted to take the time to thank you for your wonderful generosity last Thursday. The party was a hit and the food was a bigger hit. Everyone enjoyed all of the items and sauces and wanted to know where we got the food from "of course we told them it was catered by Geppetto Catering". Thanks again for your never ending support and know that I'm always there for you!
~Neal

December 2013

Just wanted to thank you for taking care of our last minute request. Everything was delicious and your team was so accommodating. Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
~Valerie

The food was amazing and so was the service!
~Dawn

Thank you so much for the success of our reception. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Our guests all commented about how good the food was -- (the pasta salad was a huge success!) Blenda was gracious and helpful at all times. We couldn't have asked for things to go better. Thank you again for guiding me so patiently through the planning of the menu. It was a pleasure to have worked with you. I hope you have time to enjoy the holidays!
~Ruth

Just want to thank you for you and your organizations help with our holiday dinner. The food was excellent and everyone was complimenting you and your team.
With all the best,
~Subhash

Our employee day was great and very informative, and our celebration event was better. The steak was best catered food I've eaten this year! Received many compliments on the food. Thanks for your support. Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Regards,
~Jake

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for catering our Annual Holiday Event! The food and dessert was exceptional...We wish you and your team continued prosperity. :)
Respectfully,
~Kyeshea

We cannot "thank you" enough for the food and service received today by Geppetto Catering. A lot of compliments on the food choices even down to the sparkling cider and yes we have enough for another luncheon tomorrow! Everything was delicious and you will definitely hear from us in 2014! Wishing everyone at Geppetto's a safe, healthy and joyous holiday!
Thank you.
~Regina

You are totally awesome. Thank you for all your help and hard work!!! Happy Holidays!!
~April

I just wanted to thank you for all your hard work last week. Even though our turnout was not as great as I had hoped, everyone was raving about the food! Thanks again! And we will definitely be in touch next holiday season!
~Caitlyn

Nothing but rave reviews and Kudos!!! Great job again.
~April 

Geppetto's Catering did a very good job as they have done in the couple past years for us.
Thank you,
~Manol

Thank you both for everything you and the Geppetto's team did last week for our conference. The food was delicious and the service superb - even with the snowstorm!
Thank you!
~Maggie

As always, fantastic food and service on Friday. We all had a great time.
~Barbara

I truly enjoy working with your team! I see a beautiful relationship beginning and look forward to having Geppetto at more of our events. 
~Quinn

Our first and last Thanksgivukah was a major success, and all the thanks go to you! The turkey, the salmon, the dressing and the bean salad were all major hits. We can't thank you enough - as we fed 26 people who seemed both to enjoy the food and your company. Needless to say, Geppetto's catering was mentioned often with effusive praise at the amazingly long and winding table...You're the best and we're very grateful.
~Judy & Peter 

Thanks to Geppetto for being awesome at handling food allergies and food!
~Bernadette

Toby and her team were fantastic to work with. I heard that guests loved the food. Many thanks.
~Robbie

~Roz

Thanks so much!!! You all did a fabulous job!
~ Mary

Thank you for the beautiful execution of this morning's functions. Your team members are prompt, flexible and sheer joy to work with.
~Monica

Thank you so much once again for catering our event. Everyone loved the food.
~ Jason

All of our guests were euphoric about the event! It was a huge success in all respects; the scope, the look, the food, the music, the concept and flow worked perfectly. Much of our success however was due to YOUR food and generosity! Not one complaint - everyone raved about the food and your "charming wait staff and bartenders." The food was served promptly, hot and delicious. Many people asked about the caterer and said they would certainly consider Geppetto Catering for their future events. Again we are so grateful for your contribution to our success. We are looking forward to a continued successful relationship with Geppetto.
~Ann

Thanks! Greatly appreciated everything! I'll Be a return customer, FOR SURE!
~Diane

Thank you so much for the wonderful lunch you provided on Wednesday. It was exactly what we wanted and our members loved it. The delivery service was excellent, they were so helpful and accommodating. We will certainly be using Geppetto Catering again in the future.
~Michelle

Geppetto's service ROCKS! I ordered breakfast - fruits, pastries, coffee, tea and more! Had it delivered this morning and they did a FANTASTIC job. They arrived on the right floor and at the right conference room all as requested. Geppetto had everything set up before I even walked in the door!
~Diane

Lunch was lovely!! : ) Thanks again - a ton! - for the quick turn around on this order, with barely 24 hours notice (less, actually). You've been a huge help and we love you guys.
~Tom

I wanted to let you know that our office enjoyed the lunch. We typically order from two other catering companies and I wanted to try something different...Glad I did! We'll definitely order from you again. Many thanks.
~Angela

I just want to thank you for the great job that Ken and his staff provided yesterday. For me personally, it is wonderful having you cater these large events- I absolutely had no worries- everything was setup prior to the start, lunches were all delivered on time and everything was cleaned up nicely. Ken always assured me that everything was taken care of. I hope to see you and your phenomenal staff in the near future. Thank you again!
~Mariane

As always, Geppetto was amazing. The time and attention to detail that you all provide is so appreciated by our staff and all the guests that come to our site. I can't thank you enough for the delicious food and for tolerating all my crazy e-mails and phone calls. You all are the best!
~Sruti

 
 

The event was wonderful on Monday - beautiful job by all!
~Danielle

Just wanted to say thank you again for helping us on this morning's meeting. The breakfast was perfect for the event and your team was super helpful. Looking forward to working together again!
~Kristen

October 2013

 

Just to throw in my thanks as well, Josh. You and Toby were both an amazing help and I truly appreciate all the hard work you both put in. I've already heard from several guests that everything went fantastically well. We could not have done it without you both!
~Davy

Just wanted to offer our sincere thanks for such outstanding service at our event last night. The team was so efficient and we really appreciated your assistance. Thanks again! 
~Claire 

Thank you!! Wow - you guys are amazing. I have just 'liked' your facebook page and will absolutely be reccomending you to anyone at our firm who needs catering/events support in Washington. I appreciate everything you and Toby have done to help us with this one. It would have been impossible without your help. :)
~Tara 

How do you keep outdoing yourself every time?! That chicken liver pate reminded me of when I was a child living in NYC. Thank you - even with a practically all new crew you made the night memorable. I love you and thanks for our treats in the back - some of us wouldn't have had anything to eat without your kindness. You were RIGHT about the third floor wine bar-and you may quote me! Love you all!
~Marilynn

 I just want to say how pleased I was with the dinner, and the service. Your delivery was right on time, you were very helpful overall and in giving me reheating instructions, plus the meal was excellent. A few at my dinner party asked for your contact, which they now have. Thank you for a well planned and executed meal/delivery.
~Joe

I just wanted to send a quick note to tell you how wonderful Ken Tu was yesterday during my group. They are one of my biggest clients and yesterday was an extremely detailed and important event. Ken was helpful from the start to finish, arriving before the sun came up and quickly adapting to changes in the agenda due to the government shutdown. My client was also extremely impressed having only a limited knowledge of Geppetto before this meeting. Ken was helfpul, personable and made the day run smoothly. I can't thank him enough for his time and support during this event. Ken definitely embodied "going above and beyond" and I look forward to working with him on many more events!
Best,
~Kirsten 

They LOVED it! Thank you so much! I am sure you will be hearing from me and others here again! Take care...
~Pam 

Jazmin and I would like to thank you so much for your services. All of your staff, from the delivery drivers to the waitstaffm did an excellent job (all very professional and friendly) and the food was also very tasty. I'm sure we will have another chance to work together again sometimes soon.
~Stephanie

Thank you so much for sharing your great bartending staff with us last week for Wednesday's donor appreciation reception. Everything was wonderful! They did a great job. Please convey our thanks to everyone at Geppetto Catering who was part of Wednesday's success! 
~Amanda 

The BBQ was a great success! Thanks again.
~Barbara

It's been 2 years since you and your team made my parent's 50th wedding anniversary a huge success. Over the past two years I have been pushing our lead administrator to try Geppettos out because I have such a great experience with you. Below is the first interaction the administrator has had and you guys knocked it out of the park. In speaking with her today she is eager to see how Monday goes and want to consider you every time we bring lunch in as well. Just wanted to say thank you for making me look good and I know dinner on Monday will be positive as well.
~Roger 

Wonderful reccomendation from my colleague! I said what we were looking for and the Geppetto representative was extremely helpful with recommendations and made it very easy and wrote up a proposal for us (pretty impressed considering it wasn't a big order). You are even cheaper than the other restaurant proposals I received. Since my colleague said the food was good I am trying you out and would like to use you for all of our catered lunches. Huge menu from cold to hot items. Thanks!
~Sarah 

Thank you kindly for all your help and patience with the catering of our event on Monday; the food got a lot of positive feedback, and I particularly loved the chicken salad sandwcih with raisin walnut bread. I ate too many of those the day of the event.Thank you again,
~Carla 

Last night was amazing by the way and everyone asked where the food was from. Thank you for everything!!!!
~Kathy

Michael was absolutely wonderful last night! We will use you guys again!
Thank you,
~Fred 

It was such a treat and surprise to walk into our board room today filled with a delicious display of Geppetto Catering. The cake was so elegant and creative! It was also touching to see Martina when she stopped by to send best wishes from the Geppetto team. You are so thoughtful and generous and you have a great team following in your footsteps!
Thanks again,
~Meghan

September 2013 

As always, Geppetto was outstanding in every aspect from food to drink! I tried to kill myself on mac and cheese balls, spinach salad and the zucchini and goat cheese! Havent' eaten that much cheese in FOREVER! Thank you for those vegetarian options! Not to mention the desserts...but I was cool! I took two aspirin before going to bed (as a precaution) after two of those gin cocktails! When i first picked it up, I thought it was water in a cute glass! Chugging halfway through, I thought "oh, how clever, it's tonic and very refreshing"...only to discover upon asking the bartender that there was gin and other cordials with the tonic! Did it stop me?? Heck no! Had another before leaving! LOL! Thank you all again for having such wonderful events, including me AND making me feel so special!
~Robyn 

I wanted to type a quick note. The food was amazing!!! The beef was tender and juicy. The crab cakes were delicious and I could not contain myself and are two of them. I will recommend you to all of my friends. Keep up the great work and until next time. :)
Thank you,
 ~Lesley 

Thanks for the wonderful food, as always, today.
Thanks again,
~Tom

Thank you so much for the wonderful food for our event last Thursday. The Artist Reception and opening was extremely successful and the appetizer trays made the experience for our patrons even more enjoyable. The Arts Counsel and myself all send our thanks for your generosity. I hope we can make this a yearly event.
Best wishes,
~Robert 

Wanted to let you know that my last day will be Oct. 1st. I am relocating to Miami, FL :) It has been a pleasure working with you and I wanted to take this time to say thank you for all the great service! Please let the rest of the Geppetto's family know for me. All the best to you and yours in the future.

I just wanted to let you know that the service provided by your company was top notch! The food was exactly what I wanted and elegantly displayed. The server was friendly, professional and attentive...I never had to worry about a thing! Even cleaning up, she packaged everything up so nicely...again, top notch! I would absolutely recommend you and your company to anyone for any event! Thanks again!
Very respectfully,
~Kristen

Thank you very much for following up on the event from last night. Everything went very well and your team of two people did an excellent job. We were all very pleased. Thank you very much. It was a pleasure working together with you and your team.
Sincerely yours,
~Susanne 

Everything was absolutely wonderful! Thank you!

Fantastic job!!! Thank you so much, Team Geppetto! Everything was absolutely perfect last night. What a stellar team. Ted and I can't thank you enough. And we made great use of the extra vittles at brunch today. Delicious!!
~Phil

The food was wonderful and received a lot of positive feedback. The driver and staff were great and very helpful. Thank you very much for doing such a great job! I'm glad I choose you.
Sincerely,
~Marion

I just wanted to thank you two for your help in making our department's event a huge success! I have been getting rave reviews of the food from everyone. One student said specifically "I don't even eat salmon, but those salmon cakes are AMAZING!" The professional staff in attendance commented that it was the best banquet they have ever been to (and one of them has been working here for 25 years, so that's saying something!). I could not have pulled it off without you two. Just know that you have a very satisfied customer and that I look forward to working with you both again on future events!
Take care,
~Caroline

August 2013

Please know it was a great luncheon and the honoree was definitely pleased venue, food and locations as were each of the guest that attended. Also great support provided by not only the staff once onsite, but Toby throughout the planning and onsite! Looking forward to our continued partnership!
Thanks again,
~Monica

Last night's event was fabulous. Thank you both for your hard work and for Ken's awesome Sangria!!
~Sruti

As usual, your team did an outstanding job and the food was delicious! The blueberry cream cheese pancakes were phenomenal and the omelette bar was also a big hit. Thanks for making my "Thank You" to an important client just what it needed to be.
~Jody

Everything at the event went really well. Your team did a nice job, we had just enough food for everyone, and the White Wine Sangria was a huge hit. Thanks again for stopping by to make sure that everything went smoothly!

You all did a bang-up job of providing for our family gathering last Wednesday after the funeral of my husband's 96-year-old cousin in Arlington Cemetary. And we would like to thank you for making it possible for us to have a rare family reunion. Thanks again!
~Shirley 


Thanks, you are the best! I really appreciate the extra touches you made.
Thanks,

All the best,

It was spectacular!! Everyone raved about how perfectly it was cooked and that it was delicious!! I WAS SO HAPPY!!!!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart,
~Vicki

Please pass along to the servers our thanks for helping to make the picnic a success. My colleague would like me to thank you for working with us on the beverages. Finally, I would like to personally thank you for making this such an effortless event on my part.
~Barbara

Thanks again to your entire team for helping us celebrate our 20th birthday this past Friday. Toby and her team were great on site and we appreciate all they did.
~Anthony 


Thank you so much for today's tasting for the Travel Channel administrative staff. We are very grateful for your time and effort. I can tell you that everyone raved about absolutely everything! Personally, I think Geppetto is the best tasting we've ever had. You may be assured that I will continue to order from Geppetto and I have no doubt that my co-workers also will contact Geppetto.
Sincerely,
~Hedi


 I wanted to pass along some compliments we received yesterday when we used Geppetto to cater our lunch meeting. Several guests commented on how nice the spread was and how much they enjoyed the fruit salad in particular. Your lunch catering has worked out quite well for some of our recent meetings!
~Natalie 


The woman who just dropped off our catering order did a lovely job arranging the food, and it all looks very nice.
Thank you,
~Elizabeth 


Adriane and I wanted to thank you for the wonderful catering and service you and your staff provided for my office BBQ. The food was fabulous and the service was exceptional. Many of our guests commented on how good the food was and Francisco and Alex gave just the right amount of help and attention. Thank you for coming out to make sure everything was set up properly and in the right order. Again, thank you for helping out to put on a wonderful BBQ party.
~Steve


The guys yesterday all complimented Geppettos for the food. I enjoyed the eggplant dish, and the guys liked the barbeque. Roger and I even had two pieces of pie!
~Sue 


In my opinion, today's 4th of July luncheon was "The Best" we've been treated to! The food was excellent...
Thank you very much!
~Roger 


The big day was fabulous! Your folks were wonderful!
~Debbi


Your food was wonderful, service very friendly, and I have told everyone at my organization, the venue and anyone else that asks, that I was EXTREMELY happy with your service/quality/etc... Thank you so much, and I wish you years & years of success.
~Jayna


June 2013

What a wonderful evening! Due to the outstanding service provided by you and your staff, our event was an overwhelming success! The food was delicious, from the beverage service through dessert and as always, the wait staff was friendly and very professional. Your assistance was invaluable and we thank you for all the extra effort you and your staff made in order to help assure the success of our event. On behalf of everyone, we would like to extend our most heartfelt appreciation to you. We look forward to working with you again in the future. Thank you again for helping to make this event a tremendous success!
Sincerely,
~Madye


Thank you for the food and drinks! We got many compliments, and I hope you heard them too while you were walking around! The only thing that could've been a bit better was having more staff bussing the tables. But the guys you did have worked hard on getting around as fast as they could. I think you will find this email from a director in our advisory practice just as pleasing as I did: "I have worked here for more than 21 years. This event was the best day event that I have ever participated. (That is telling something!) FOOD: The food was excellent. Excellent choice for the caterer! In bonus/addition, the caterer GEPPETTO CATERING is a certified green restaurant, which is a welcomed surprise. If you want comparisons, the food was better than the Christmas party of 2012 at the Ritz hotel, even though I think that we probably spent more money on the latter." I hope the rest of your summer events go just as well as this one did :)
~Jessi 


Thanks! Everything worked out great! Food was Delicious! And Service was Great. Love ANGELO!
~Gina 


Just want to let you know how enjoyable the brunch was for all of my guests. They went crazy over the blueberry item w/ the syrup. The girls were wonderful also. Thanks so much.
~Carol


I wish there were better words than "thank you" to express my gratitude to you and Geppetto for the outstanding customer service, presentation, and more importantly, the food. I received so many compliments on the taste, quality, and presentation of the delicacies. When I get compliments like that, it just enhances our image. Yesterday, was a real testament to your food, as security would not allow heating elements to be lit to keep the food warm, as they considered that "open fire". Even with that, the goodness of the food still shined through. Compliments to you and the chefs. Until next time....My very best regards,
~Nora


Big thank you to the catering staff - Angelo, Ricardo, and Greg. What a fantastic team!
~Joan


Thank you. I want you to know that the food and service was excellent today! Everyone loved it. You should see how much I took home! Sylvia is awesome. Thanks again for all your help!
 ~Jennifer 


I just wanted to reach out and say thanks so much for the great food you provided for our dinner last night. Eileen reached out to secure a meal for a women's dinner we hosted and as I anticipated, your meal did not disappoint. All the guests commented on the great flavors and variety of options. Thanks again and take care!
~Elisabeth 


Just got back from Japan! We look forward to other events with you. My Japanese sister was talking about the event in Tokyo and was still glowing.
~Jane


Thank you for all of your gracious assistance and patience as we planned our board meeting at Top of The Hill. We were very eager to host both the meeting and dinner there, but as you know, due to unforeseen circumstances, we had to cancel the dinner event. We were still extremely pleased with how the afternoon meeting ran. Our president remarked that it was one of the smoothest board meetings we've hosted, which is absolutely true. Thanks to you, Tammy, and Sandy, we had a seamless event, and our guests and staff left very happy. Your guidance and suggestions throughout the planning process were especially helpful and made us feel confident in hosting the event at this space. I will certainly be in touch with you when we consider spaces for future events or catering orders. Many thanks again,
~Betsy


Belated thanks for your wonderful catering last Saturday. As usual, your staff was outstanding - professional, capable and gracious -- and the food excellent. The cake was gorgeous to look at and absolutely scrumptious. Thanks again for jumping in and helping to make it a splendid evening. Looking forward to other occasions.
~Jane 


I just want to say that the catering for the reception was exceptional and very much first class. The food was delicious and presented beautifully and your servers were very professional. It was a beautifully fitting reception for our daughter at the Women's Memorial. I would be very happy to recommend Geppetto Catering to anyone considering a reception at the Women's Memorial or other location in that area. You were a pleasure to work with.
~Doreen


I want to let you know that we were very, very happy with the dinner you delivered. Our guests were thrilled with everything, and all was on time, very beutifully arranged and just perfect for the evening. Thank you, and I will continue to recommend you to others whenever I can...cheers,
~Eileen


Very successful event last night! Great event...great food...elegant and you raised money for the organization! Congratulations to you and all involved making it such a fun night! Thank you!
~Elizabeth 


The client was very pleased with how it went. Thanks again for all your help, guidance, and assistance. You were invaluable during the process.
~Nathan 


Everything was perfect yesterday and I got so many compliments on the catering and the cake. Thank you so much for your help and patience with me! I will definitely recommend you all in the future!
~Traci 


Geppetto's never lets me down!!
~Regina 


You shoot...and you score again!!! Thank you so much for making both events successful. I will be in touch for future events.
~Nikki 


The Board Meeting went extremely well. It was great having Herminia...she was a huge help. Lunch was delicious, each one of the mini-sandwiches were unique and flavorful. The Israeli Cous Cous salad was one of the best I have ever had. Tasty, fresh nicely seasoned with a taste of fresh herbs. Congratulations on a job well done.
~Keith


Thanks for a great job with last night's reception (and the whole two days overall) - the client was very happy!
~LeeAnn


The food was superb! Thank you for your most professonal assistance. Everything was absolutely perfect! I am thrilled to be able to do business with you and your company! Thanks again for making our corporate event a special day!
Best Regards,

Just wanted to say thank you, everything went wonderfully. I will definitely keep you in rotation for future events.

May 2013


It is with appreciation that I commend Ms. Reina for the conscientious service she provided for me; May 28 - 31, 2013 at our office. She was exemplary! Ms. Reina, was trained by Mike who has also provied outstanding service for me in the past. Ken Tu, my menu selecting guru, has consistently provided superior service for me and he, likewise, should be commended. So often, complaints overwhelm the praise loyal and dedicated employees should receive and I hope you will officially commend these special employees for a job well done.
~Lucille 


As usual your team was fantastic, the classroom you converted into a distinguished dining experience!! Our guest had a memorable experience. Thank you very much!
~Joe


Been meaning to drop you a note that everything was terrific. The food was delicious and your staff was excellent. Many thanks! (Though, of course, I wasn't at all surprised.) Thanks so much. Hugs.
~Ilene


I hope you will forgive my allowing the evening to pass without, and my delay, after the fact, in making time to do so, but I would also like to extend my heartfelt appreciation to you and your entire staff for the phenomenal job you did on Wednesday evening. We are all so grateful to have the opportunity to work with you and could not have been more pleased with the phenomenal food, the professional and courteous service,.....everything really!!! We have been incredibly fortunate to have the commitment and support of our staff over the past several years and I can't thank them enough. But our coordinator is correct in that the event could not have been nearly the success it's been over the past two years if it had not been for Geppetto's catering. I am eternally grateful for your generosity and your support!!!
With very warmest regards and HUGE appreciation,
~Lisa 


On behalf of the event committee and staff, I wanted to express our sincere gratitude to you and Geppetto's for your generous support, your valuable event expertise, your exceptional service and - of course - delicious food!!! - all of which helped contribute to an incredibly successful fundraising event - our biggest to date! This event is not only deeply imporant to me and the entire family, but it is a critical part of our ability to carry out their important mission. It is always such a pleasure to work with you. I hope you know how much we all appreciate your participation. Thank you again! - and again!!
Best,
~Marnie 


The event at our building was great! Our tenants definitely enjoyed the presentation and food.
~Keya


Thank you so much for an awesome event!
~Nasim


We are enjoying left over BBQ from yesterday's festivities in the office today. I just had to write and say WOW! This is delicious. Congrats to you and your team and thank you!
~Nancy


I just wanted to write and say thank you very much to Geppetto's for catering our graduation reception on Thursday night. The food was great, your staff were great, and the event was a huge success. I even had a woman come up to me and specifically tell me that I had made an excellent choice with the catering company that I chose. I just wanted to express my gratitude and let you know that we really appreciate your service.
Sincerely,
~Tyler 


Thanks again for helping to make our Friday events so successful! The food was great and all of your staff members were a delight to work with. Hope you have a delightful day!
Sincerely,
~Melissa 


Dinner was delicious. Our guest took your napkins so they could remember your name. :)
Many thanks,
~Maureen


It was really great working with you and the reception turned out perfectly. Your staff was very professional and kind. They set up everything beautifully. The cakes all turned out great too, and almost all of it was enjoyed immediately after the ceremony. Thank you so much for making Sue's Retirement Day special.
All the best to you,
~Jane 


You saved us!!!!! Thank you and thanks to Samuel. The food is delicious and everyone is grateful!
~Jane


Great food, great event, great silent acution item.
Thanks
~John


Once again our reception at the Reserve Officers Associaton and the catering provided by Geppetto Catering was superb. I noticed many new faces to your staff this year. As always, they were very courteous and professional. Please pass along my compliments to the chef. The menu was exquisite. I look forward to working with you again next year.
Regards,
~Lynn 


Our Director of Finance (who is also leaving us unfortunately) absolutely LOVED the surprise event! Our Web and Database Director set up a "baby shower" motif and it was so beautiful - very artistic. There were so many wonderful comments about the menu selection - and I mean from EVERYONE! The way you set up the half and half (meat/salmon) so that there would be enough for the veggie people and meat eaters - was a fabulous idea!!! There were NO leftovers for lunch the next day. That's how good it was!!! I must say Geppetto really made the event! Thank you so very much!
Thanks again!!
~Jean


You guys have been wonderful to work with. I just wanted you to know that our board members thought the crab cakes were better than the crab cakes they had at 1789 Restaurant in Georgetown last night. Job well done!!
Thank you for everything!
~Cheri


THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR TODAY!!! EVERYTHING WAS WONDERFUL!! YOU ARE THE GREATEST!!!
~Shantell'e


Thanks so much. The food and driver were wonderful!
~Lisa

Toby was WONDERFUL, cool, calm and collected the whole event and thoughtful about being supportive to our staff and volunteers....a real gem. The food and overall event support was great - thanks again for all your help and creativity! We will be counting up the receipts today and hopefully will have a sense of total $$ raised soon.
Best,
~Heather 


The catering and food were terrific!! Toby and your staff were attentive and excellent! Thank you for all you did to make the gala a huge success!!
Thank you,
~Caren


Wanted to write to commend you and your staff on an exceptional job with our gala this past Thursday evening. The "reviews" are in and the results indicate the food was fabulous - the best we've had at our gala both in choice and quality. The service was fantastic with Toby doing an excellent job of filling-in in your absence. We've had a number of inquiries about the catering which hopefully will push some business your way in the next few months. Know we'll be talking further but wanted to get an email off to thank and congratulate you for your support of our gala.
~John


I want to sincerely thank you and your chef for providing that delicious tasting, we were very impressed. Hopefully this is the beginning of an enduring relationship. I'm looking forward to Monday's catered event. Enjoy the rest of your week!
Best,
~Rich 


Your staff was lovely, and the event was a great success.
~Jennifer 


It was a pleasure to work with you and your staff. They made the day perfect!
Thanks, again!
~Karen

Many thanx for all of your help, everything went totally smooth over the two days.
~Brian


Another fabulous event, the tenants loved everything, especially the eggs and the blueberry pancake souffle. And they especially like the fact that we had turkey bacon. Thanks a million. You know I'll be in touch for my next event if I'm still here :)
Have a Great Day!!!
~DeEtta


Thank you so much for everything you and your folks did to make our event very succesful! The food was great, the reception was beautiful, and your staff is wonderful. Meenia (not sure of the spelling) was so attentive to our every need. I hope to be able to work with you again soon.
Thanks so much!
~Karen


I just wanted to thank you and your team for helping make the board meeting a sucess. I enjoyed working with Martina and her team and feel that they did an excellent job. Jerry also sends his many thanks for the delicious pizza, and my team and I send you thanks for the beautiful flower arrangements. I do hope you have heard positive things from my group. I know our team had a good experience working with yours. Thank you!
Sincerely,
~Amanda


All went well, the staff enjoyed the freshness and the new salad I chose.
Thanks a bunch!
~Tonya


Thank you so much for the wonderful food at the Capt.'s retirement reception. It was scrumptious, and so beautifully displayed. I loved the way that the vegetables were cut and arranged including, capers in a red pepper cup and the use of fresh flowers to decorate the platters. The linens looked beautiful, and I thank your staff for thinking to bring a table covering for a gift and greeting card "station". The coffee was nice and strong and the punch was festive and a nice alternative to sodas. I am SO sorry but I have forgotten our server's name...but he did such a lovely job keeping the table looking nice and even assisted me in passing out the cake. Please let your team know that we are so grateful for your professionalism from the time that I called until the actual reception. I assure you that I will remember Geppetto Catering if I ever need assistance again. Warm wishes for a great success in the future.
Sincerely,
~Karen 


I wanted to thank you for all of your help and patience in working with the Philodemic Society. The dinner went perfectly. The food was fabulous, the presentation beautiful, and the staff extremely friendly. We will keep your company in our records to use again in the future. Have a nice day!
All the best,
~Julia


Your crew is always so nice and there's never an issue.....believe me, when you're trying to plan even a small event with 12 attendees, something as simple as not having to worry that the caterer is going to mix something up or get something wrong, is a HUGE relief! You guys always come through and there's never a problem. Thanks, so much!!!!
~Erin


Thanks so much again for a wonderful event. We were extremely pleased. We also appreciate the fantastic team on site who made it all happen from set up to clean up. You have excellent folks on staff! I wish you a great week and will continue to push your catering business when folks approach me for suggestions.
Take care,
~Stacy


Just wanted to thank you for wonderful food, set-up, and service and clean-up. You did a great job.

Well, you have once again orchestrated another wonderful meal for Potomac Hunt members. The food and especially the service provided by your staff at the hunt ball was terrific. The dining area in the tent was so fresh and promising of Spring it really makes me believe it will happen. The Centerpieces were just gorgeous! Thank you so very, very much for making sure the evening was a resounding success. You are an angel!
Most fondly,
~Beverley


I hope you will commend Mr. Mike and Ms. Rayna for their exemplary service over the last two days. Their willingness to perform any task to assure that our “brand” was maintained with our customers renews our trust in the relationship that has developed between our companies.
Again, please commend Mr. Mike and Ms. Rayna for their exceptional service to our companies.

You are amazing!  We loved everything, and 'the food was fabulous,' a phrase I heard over and over all night. Also, the flowers were gorgeous, another phrase I heard over and over. Everything was so beautiful and I cannot thank you enough.
Thank you again, from the bottom of my heart, you ARE the best!
~Vicki

Our guests thought the lasagna was by far the best they had ever had.  I have not gotten any yet, but i will.  It’s nearly gone!!June is coming up quicker than we think.  I will be planning several lunches the first three weeks with you!!  We have been so pleased this week. Thank you so much for always being so helpful!
~Judy

Just wanted to drop a quick note.  Everyone really enjoyed the going away luncheon today – truly delicious!  All I can say is “Wow!” Thank you so much – you guys make me look good.
Best,
~Jean

Thank you for all your help getting our event planned up and dealing with us.  I heard many comments that it was by far the best reception we had, to include the food and drinks.  So, thank you to you and all your staff. Thank you again and look forward to working with you next year.
~Chris

Now that things have slowed down a bit from this morning – I can now take a moment to tell you about my lunch experience.  Everything was great!  The delivery was on time and I appreciate the set up that he did.  There was plenty of food for everyone and we stayed within our established budget.  The sandwiches and desserts were very good.  I’m happy that you stopped by the office last week because it was from that meeting that I decided to use Geppetto’s for the lunch.  I will use your company again in the very near future.   Lastly, thank you for the hard candies.
Thanks again!
~Cherryl

Thank you SO very much for sending Toby to us.  She was great and the food was SUPERB!!!!!   As usual, we appreciate the driver for being prompt and setting everything up for us.   Overall, it was an incredible experience and we will be in touch.
~Lisa

My coworker and our student are working with Ken on another summer program ---- a really awful one where Ken has had to be REALLY patient.  They can’t say enough good about all of you either. Nice to know you have a consistent company attitude of excellence!!!  Good job!
~Judy

Angelo did a great job.
~Mike

Everything was great!  Thank you.
The delivery gentleman was soooo nice and helpful.

I always appreciate doing business with those who give excellent service and that's what I experienced so far with Geppetto.
~Elaine

Everything was very good yesterday and people raved about the food. Kudos to Geppetto's.
Thank you.
~Rhonda

Thank you so much for the wonderful menu and service at the murder mystery party.   Francisco and Sandy were fantastic.  Those blue martinis were to “die” for!  Thanks for always being wonderful!
Have a great day,
~Marnie

The meals went over very well a couple of weeks ago (2/21-22).  We would like to make you one of our regular caterers. Everyone was very impressed with the taste and presentation of the food.  Like I mentioned on the phone, we have 9-12 two day meetings throughout the year.  We are in the midst of planning 2014.  I look forward to working with you again soon.
Sincerely,
~Lorry

I attended an event last week and enjoyed the delicious lunch your company provided. It was the first time I had the opportunity to taste your food and everyone kept commenting on how wonderful everything was. Thank you for providing such a treat!
Sincerely,
~Kara

February 2013

Thank you VERY MUCH for sending over all those lovely treats, and the handwritten notes.  It really wasn’t necessary, but is very much appreciated :o)   Our staff (me included) will enjoy this nice surprise on a cloudy day.
Thank you again for your personal follow-up and commitment to excellence.  It tells me a lot about your company/philosophy.  I’ll certainly give Geppetto’s another try when the opportunity arises.
All the best,
~Mary Anne

Our event last Wednesday went very well. I appreciated your very professional and courteous staff. I will certainly recommend Geppetto to my colleagues.
~Nicole

Just wanted to let you know that the Red Bliss Potato Salad and the Walnut Brownies were huge hits with the ELI Class! They have requested that we have them at every class. Geppetto is the best!
~Tanika

Flowers are here and are absolutely gorgeous!!!
~April

The food yesterday was the best EVER, so much so that folks are still talking about it today! Thank you for helping to make our honor roll assemblies so special for students and families. Also, I did not catch their names but the delivery staff (one man and one woman) were extremely easy to work with, were extremely flexible, punctual, and very professional. Please send my regards!
Best,
~Emma

Everyone loved both of the lunches!  Thank you for everything and we will definitely be in touch for future orders!
THANKS,
~Christine

Many thanks to your entire staff. Your guys are AWESOME!
Blessings,
~Nelson

Both events were wonderful. Thanks for all your help!
~Karen

You are quite simply the best.  Your efforts ensured last night's auction was an amazing event.  First class. Elegant. Festive. Delicious. Fun. You made us look good. You made our members proud to be part of this amazing organization.  You made guests want to get involved.  
Thanks from the bottom of my heart!!
~Tim

Thank you so much for your wonderful support and service as we planned my promotion ceremony reception. Geppetto Catering did a great job and received rave reviews! I valued your professional touch and experience. The display was gorgeous and food very tasty. Thanks again for a wonderful reception!
Kindly,
~Stacy

I can't tell you how much I appreciate everything that you and your team did last night.  The evening was absolutely elegant, everyone was impressed by the venue, food and the people who attended.  It was a fantastic success.  Your staff from set up to clean up was outstanding!!  Martina was tremendous, she knew that the hosts had never had a party at their house and made sure they were comfortable with the whole process.  Thanks again (I know if you were there you would have witnessed these outstanding acts of professionalism).  
~Joe 

I don’t know the names of the drivers who came today, but there was a younger one who I guess is new being that he wasn’t alone, anyway he was great! He was friendly and outgoing and talkative from the first minute he came in, great with settings things up. You guys got yourself a good one, I think!  Keep him on our list!
~Pam

Your folks did a great job today and I appreciate you setting up the PP breakfast.  Turned out very casual and enjoyable.
~Waller

Thank you for a wonderful event today. The accommodations, service and food were all wonderful.
Thank you!!
~Jennifer

The biggest compliment that I heard and from the toughest of all the critics, my father, was “the caterer deserved an A+.”  He’s not an easy man to please and coming from his past history in the catering business, that was a well-earned and well-deserved kudos to you and your team.  It was great!
Thanks,
~Ed

January 2013

I just wanted to thank you again for a lovely evening.  My group truly enjoyed the wine pairing this evening.  Kudos to you and your team for a very successful event.
~Linda

Hope you recovered!!  I have to tell you once more what a great job you and your staff did for us at Lafayette Park.  It was a large part of why everything went so well.
Thanks again!
~Francine

Thanks, I have been very busy this morning and haven’t been able to get back to you to thank you for a wonderful evening.  I have heard from several participants that they loved the venue and the food.  You guys at Geppetto are fantastic.  I appreciate you making me look good.
~Mansouria

Thank you again for yesterday. Everything went very smoothly. :)
~Meredith

How tremendously impressive you are in delivering all those healthy principles to the business community and beyond in terms of your Geppetto Catering offerings. As you know, many years ago I was chagrined at the lack of healthy choices and now am so delighted every time you cater an event to have a vast array of delectable choices that are all simply delicious. Your caring, as demonstrated by how much you give to the business community, is now further extended by your giving of healthy alternatives.
~Hilary

Thank you! Great customer service.  I really appreciate how responsive you are.
~Kate

The breakfast this morning was excellent!
Thanks!
~Nanette

I just wanted to say "Thank You" for the cake and set-up.  The cake was very pretty and delicious, and I do plan to use your catering service in the near future.
Thank you again,
~Kelly

We have our monthly event next week and will be placing our order early next week…we love your food!  Everyone always compliments us.
Thanks!!
~Nelissa

Great job. Food was excellent as was the service and timeliness.
~Steve

The Open House Reception was great yesterday.  Geppetto staff did an EXCELLENT job!!
Thank you again.
~Sandra

The food today was absolutely wonderful. I really appreciate you taking the time to come over here and tell us all about your company and all of the food. My bosses were very impressed and we will be ordering for you all for our next event and hopefully start using you all as a regular go-to caterer.
The steak and crab cakes were awesome! Also I loved the salsa and the seasoning on the other beef. The little chocolate candies were also good. We are all very stuffed in this office.
~Gayla

December 2012

The food was excellent and thank you for all of your help.
~Subhash

I wanted to get back to you personally to rave about our experience with Geppetto Catering! It started with your prompt response to my email request for more information. Then your staff ran with the ball and constructed the best menu possible given the needs we have for a typical search committee meeting. Today culminated with our visit and tasting. We enjoyed the presentation and information about your company. We are in the process of becoming more green as a firm and this would certainly assist in our efforts. Our team enjoyed the menu items brought today and when shared with the rest of the firm there was only glowing compliments about how much everything was enjoyed.
I send genuine and sincere congratulations to your entire team and look forward to working with you in the New Year.
~Jacki  

Lunch today was superb- THANK YOU. Our president was very complimentary of the food and presentation. Today was our first company meeting with our new Parents, so the lunch was a very important first impression.
 ~Carol

I wanted to let you know that everything from your end was wonderful! The food was not only DELICIOUS but beautifully presented! All the feedback I received was praise for the catering! So thank you so much for making our event a huge success! My only disappointment was that the strudels were all gone before I got a chance to taste them! Everyone raved about how wonderful they were! Next time I'll order 2 large!!! lol. Thank you again so much! Please thank your chef for doing exactly what I envisioned on the tiramisu. It was perfect and tasted divine!!! The mini cupcakes were PERFECT and each one a wonderful surprise to the palate!
I hope to work with you again in the future. I would be happy to offer an excellent reference for you and your company anytime!
Thank you again so much!
~Laura

Thank you very much. It was a great night- we appreciate everything you did! (and the lamb was awesome!)
~Kate

Our event was a huge success. Your company received rave reviews on the food and staff!! Lots of people asked who our caterer was- I passed your contact information along! I hope it results in a few more events for you!!
~Anne

Awesome job once again..the food was amazing.
I cannot tell you how much fun and how rewarding it is working with you all of these years.
I know when we hire you...it's a no brainer. I don't have to worry...or hold my breath...no close calls...everything works seamlessly...thank you for making every event whether lunch or learn or corp party or association events.
You have been my rock and your teams and you have been a blessing in my life. I feel so fortunate.
Hugs.
~Dorlise

I wanted to write to thank you and the team for a wonderful event on Monday. The employees were delighted with the food, service, atmosphere, and staff. Your team did an amazing job- they were prompt, diligent, professional, and on top of everything. I am so grateful. We will definitely use you again!
Thanks!
~Kelly

You and your team did a wonderful job last night. The crowd ate voraciously.
~Keith

Your fine food and great team were spot on!

Have a lovely holiday.
~Nana

The steering committee was very impressed with the spread.

It was wonderful!! I didn't get to try the lentil salad-- it was finished before I got there!! The cookies and bars were fabulous though.Thank you!!
~Sruti

Food is great!!
:)
~Nelissa

The luncheon that you catered for us Wednesday was wonderful! Delicious food, and the delivery men were very nice and helpful! We all enjoyed it very much, and we will certainly call on you for future events. Thanks again, and have a happy holiday season...busy as it is for you all.
~Pat

Good job. The food was great and while I always get compliments on how good the food is, last night I got more than I have in the past. You were 100% spot on with those shooters. Big hit. Matter of fact, we would really apprciate the recipe for the shooters as well as the celery root dish. That was a hot topic and everyone wants this recipe (don't worry, I don't think we are going to take your business over!)
Thanks again.
~Jeffrey

Thank you so much for everything. The food was delicious and everyone had a great time.
Thank you, thank you.
~Jane

I want to thank you and your courteous and professional staff for the fantastic job that your staff provided to the Department of Interior yesterday. Also, for your attention to detail and personally being on site to ensure everything ran smoothly. It is always a blessing to have you cater our large events. I never have to worry about anything! I heard and received many positive comments about the breakfast and boxed lunches. Everything was great! I look forward to working with you in the near future. Thanks again.
~Mariane

Thank you very much for a delicious lunch. Everything was great. I would like to acknowledge the staff as being very kind, thoughtful and patient.
Have a wonderful day.

There was rave reviews on the turkey and dressing.
I would love the recipe if possible!
Thanks.

Just wanted to say you guys did an amazing job with both events this week!
We look forward to working with you often from this point on!
All the best.
~Tom

My lunch was delivered and everything is wonderful, thank you so much again.
Thanks.
~Marji

I wanted to thank you for all of your hard work last night. Your time and attention to detail was noticed by all of our guests, many who complimented the food and decor. I will definitely be referring them all to you, and can't wait to work with you again.
Thank you both so much!
~Sruti

November 2012

Your team is absolutely awesome and professional, and I will definitely be using you again for corporate events.
~Charesse

I apologize for not writing sooner. But I wanted to make sure you know that the platters for our party were a huge hit! I really appreciate you working with me to provide some gluten-free snacks. Thank you for all the help and support.
~Shira

If I didn't mention this already, Thanksgiving lunch was again enjoyed tremendously. The food was delicious!
Thank you!
~Jason

We would like to personally thank you for coordinating our last minute request for today's lunch meeting.
Our clients were very impressed; we feel we hit a home run! The food arrived on time and our clients were very happy with the food selection(s)- not to mention the desserts were a hit...they were gone before the meeting ended!
Thanks again for always being flexible and accommodating our needs.
Have a great rest of the week!
~Marilyn

The party was a great success in large part because of Geppetto Catering's food and wonderful staff. You weren't kidding about giving us the A-team! And the valet parking apparently went off without a hitch. Thanks so much for the effort you put in personally, and please thank Hermina et al for their work. People commented on how lovely they were! Many people asked for your name and I wouldn't be surprised if you get some business from our party!
Once again, thanks so much Josh. See you soon!
Warm regards.
~Anne

Thanks so much again for all your help with the coat racks. They were put to good use and certainly solved a big problem for our event.
Thanks again.
~Karyn

I wanted to let you know the food for our executive meeting last night was outstanding and everyone enjoyed the wonderful dishes. Thank you for all your help coordinating the menu selections and being flexible with our requests.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.
Warm regards.
~Marilyn

The Nov 15-16 catering was amazing and we wanted to acknowledge it. It stood out from the other 20 caterers. The cookies were amazing according to the panelists and plug-in always warm coffee pot was a hit. Thank you so much. (where do you guys get fresh cranberries this time of year!)
~Derika

The event went great! Actually, I just came back from lunch and I snagged the last piece of salmon. And again the crab cakes were a hit. Thank you so much for all your help.
Warm regards.
~Cassie

The crab dip is so yummy! People loved the food and kept asking who the caterer was! Next time, leave some cards behind!!
Thanks again.
~Nelissa

By the way, I loved the Lamb Meatball Fritters you served last night.
Terrible for my cholesterol but mm, mm delicious!
Congratulate the chef on a winner!
~Keith

Everything was delicious and the students really enjoyed the food.
Thanks again!
~Andrew

We truly appreciate the exceptional service from the Geppetto's staff each and every time!
~Ryse

I wanted to email you to share with you some of the comments that I received from those who attended the event.
- "Two thumbs up, impressive!"
- "Very fresh and liked the fact that it was grown locally."
We were very impressed with the presentation.
Again, thank you for your time.
~Cassie

Our program manager was very happy with his kosher meals.
Thanks a bunch!

Just wanted to thank you so much for the great food we had Friday night. Everything was perfect and delicious - everyone asked who catered it and said how awesome the meal was! It was also a pleasure working with your staff.
Thanks again for a job well done and I would definitely recommend Geppetto Catering to everyone! I'll look forward to seeing you in the office in a few months.
~Karen

The party was a huge success. Thank you!
Everything arrived on time. The food was outstanding, especially the beef that was super tender and thanks for leaving the nuts off the cake.
~Michael

Wanted to let you know that everything was VERY good and beautifully presented. It looked great and tasted great too.
~Marie

I just wanted to thank you for all your help putting the catering together for our party. The food was wonderful and we received many compliments. I look forward to working with you again in the future!
Thank you.
~Amber

Saturday night was a great event in large part due to you and your excellent team. I know everyone enjoyed the food, the ambience in the room, and the flow of the event. Given the crowd, I know we couldn't have done something as impressive without you. It was an elegant setting accomodating a large group and everyone could see well and lingered as we hoped. There were many moving parts and it was a great comfort for me to know that the food and logistics were in your hands.
My thanks to everyone who worked the meeting.
Levine and Geppetto make beautiful music together.
Best.
~Stan

Thank you so much for the wonderful food yesterday. Everything turned out perfectly! We had lots of compliments so I made sure to tell everyone that your company always provides excellent food and service.
~Tricia

Thank you for all you did to make our annual forum event meeting food and beverages top notch! We had so many positive compliments- about all the offerings. Your staff person did a fantastic job. He was always working to keep items replenished, look appealing and tidying up!
We look forward to working with all of you in the future!
~Julie

Wanted to say that the dinner on October 20th was over the top as usual. It was fabulous and the food was wonderful. Thanks for all you do for Levine- you make all of our events and board meetings special.

Warmest regards.

~Lachone

Unbelievable!! The salad was amazing and you saved the day. People loved the bamboo!!
I tasted your BBQ and loved it! I'm not usually a BBQ person. Kudos!!
Thanks a million.
~Debbie

Today's order was a hit! We would like to keep it through the end of the year even with our regular schedule.
Thank you.
~Gina

I wanted to send my thanks to you! The food was amazing and the guests of honor were so happy and impressed and send their gratitude. The guests were so surprised with all of the food preparations. The compliments were non stop, I had people approach me and asked to let them take leftovers home. Thanks again for such a great food presentation.
I also wanted to add that your staff was a great help! They are very patient people, and always give me their all as if I were the only person in mind. Your driver that delivered the food was fast, professional and very courteous.
You have some great employees that work for you!
Thank you again.
~Mimi

Thank you and your staff for designing a wonderful menu last night. Everything was delicious, meatballs, chicken pies, salmon and cheeses. Our guests were really treated to a wonderful buffet. We had a number of Danes from the Embassy and they told me how impressed they were to have had a Danish inspired menu. They too thought the food was great. Thanks again for all your hard work.
~Keith

Was so sorry I didn't get to hug I mean thank you in person! Thank you for everything! Everyone raved about the food as always!
~Julie

Talk about high energy--last night's event was at its best. I think the set up and food options were fantastic. Your team did a great job as usual. Saw a number of classmates and friends there who raved about the menu, location and format.
This event would not have happened with such style and impact without Geppetto and your continued support.
On behalf of the board and our entire team, many thanks for your investment in our mission and for being a dedicated partner and good friend.
My best.
~Tim

~Mike

Absolutely wonderful! Thank you for a delicious lunch.
~Pam

There has been much praise today from me and others about Geppetto Catering. I was so glad to see that you were delivering for the morning and for lunch. The lunch caterer was- as are all of your people- excellent. Everyone was very pleased by the set up and also about your green policies and compostable items, etc. This afternoon Samuel came back for the items and waited patiently as some people continued to serve themselves. You all are soo classy- using lovely serving platters- providing tablecloths, etc. Thanks for listening/reading all this- and please convey compliments to Samuel and the rest of the crew.
~Ruth

You and your staff did an excellent job last night with the closing reception. I have already received many compliments on the meticulous attention to the setup, menu, flowers and your professional catering staff.

Enjoy your weekend!
~Brendan

I look forward to having happy customers tomorrow, as your food always "wows" our guests!!! Thanks again.
~Trish

The staff was on time and professional. The food was delicious. Thanks for for everything.
~Laura

The reception went very well. Boy, people loved your food! (In fact, someone was still rhapsodizing about the portobello mushrooms at one of our June events.) Wow. We had a smaller turnout than expected so are happily eating the leftovers today. Thanks hugely to your great staff, Herminia, Silvia and Eduardo  who were super professional and helpful and did everything to make things run ever so smoothly. Awesome job, Geppetto!
~Ai-Hui

Thank you so much for your food donations and support to One Day DC. With your donation we were able to feed over 100 people living in and around the park. We had an incredible group of volunteers who helped to prepare and serve the food. Thank you again.
~Theo

Just wanted to let you know that our little luncheon went very well, thank to you, and I was very impressed by the food. The meal was great and the whole process went smoothly.
I don't usually do catered meals, but when I do again I will be contacting you. And I'll be recommending you to my colleagues here as well.
Thank you very much for the great effort.
~Andrew

Thanks for such a great event last week!
Everything was wonderful and I look forward to working with you all again soon! Thanks!
~Lee Anne

I meant to also let you know that your food at the picnic was awesome!!! Thanks!
~Caroline

I just wanted to say thank you for the great job your team did in setting up the wine tasting. They had every detail in place prior to the start of the event and that was no small feat. This event requires a great deal of work for your team and I wanted to be sure to not only say "thanks" but also make sure you knew how great a job they did and how appreciated the assistance was. We also really appreciate you coming through for use with the paper ice buckets.
~David

Food and staff were extraordinary on Friday. Thanks for the party.
~Alex

I just wanted to send a note of thanks for the wonderful catering that Geppetto provided to us at our two events. The arrangements were more than adequate and everyone was pleased.
Thank you once again and if we are ever in Washington again or any of our affiliates need a caterer, I will be sure to recommend Geppetto.
~Richard

July 2012

Everything was wonderful! We had a great turnout and Geppetto, as usual, provided excellent food and service! Thank you for all that you and your team do for us.

This was more than just another meal, it was a special event.  So the fact that I called up at the last minute and you delivered a WONDERFUL DINNER...means a great deal. The attendees say thank you and I say thank you.
Much love.
~Presley

First I want to thank you for your personal support of our awards ceremony. It was a Home Run! I want to congratulate your staff for a job well done. I continue to receive compliments concerning the event. Thanks for your friendship and support!
~Joe

June 2012

I just wanted to reiterate to you how great your staff did for our two day event.  They were kind, professional, very caring and on point!  They knew the job that they had to do and they not only did it, they did it well!  The food of course, it goes without saying, was amazing but would have been nothing without a fantastic crew!  Especially Armena (sp?), she is just the best! So, this is to simply say, thank you to you and your efficient, amazing crew, continue to treat them well. Please let your staff know how much we appreciated their professionalism and humanity which greatly added to us having a great event!
~Barbara

Yesterday's event was very nice thank you. The servers were excellent. The linens were beautiful. The flowers were beautiful and fragrant and noticed.
Thank you.
~Valerie

Can I tell you how easy you have made this for me. I went to other caterers and it was all very impersonal and complicated. I was referred to 1800 numbers and websites. So, am really impressed!
~Samar

The staff were friendly, courteous & very professional.
~Ken

Just wanted to let you know that the crew did a wonderful job of the set-up, service and food. Please thank them for us.
Looking forward to working with you next year.
~Tom

Thank you for the special dish today (crabmeat, rice and vegetables). It was absolutely delicious!! Now I want a dozen blue crabs for dinner. LOL
~Lachone

The food today was delicious! All of it, yummy. Thanks very much also to your staff member who had to set up the buffet as quietly as possible while some presentations were going on. Everything went perfectly.
~Ai-Hui

Everything was wonderful!!!
Food was great!!!!
Thank you (Geppetto) for your generosity!!
~Pearl

I just want to say how very pleased we were with Geppetto’s work.  Our deliveries were all very timely, and the individuals delivering the items were efficient and professional.  Our servers on Friday night did a marvelous job for our reception – they did all of the set-up and managed well in the constraints of the room in which it was held.  The original food/drink recommendations were perfect for the event.  We require careful attention to recycling and “being green,” and the event staff of the building were impressed with your company’s dedication to sustainable food service.  When asked, we highly encouraged them to add your company to their list of recommended caterers for the corporate events like ours that they regularly host.  I will be sure to provide your contact information to their staff. It has been a pleasure working with you; I truly appreciate how timely your responses have been to all of my inquiries and changes and how professional and efficient you are. Geppetto will definitely be at the top of our list for any future events we may host!
Thank you!
Sincerely,
~Katherine

Just saw the cake, it is beautiful!!!!! Big thanks to you guys:0)
~Tanika

My celebration was a totally relaxed and happy event for me because I knew that your staff were to provide the best service and most delicious food and you were there behind the scenes.
~Rainier

It was a most wonderful evening for my guests and I. I had hoped for a magical evening and everything fell into place and it happened! Thanks in a large part to your efforts! We are already thinking of more opportunities to have here with you.
~Beverley

I just wanted to let you know that EVERYONE enjoyed the food. Especially the variety of Pate's! OMG! Every time someone ate one particular one someone else would say did you try this one. Then they started on the Hummus and last but not least the Moose Cups and Lemon Tarts. Fruit and cheese display was very nice and that was moving quickly.
Every time we order from you it gets more amazing. You guys do a fantastic job. 
Everything was GREAT!
Thanks so much.
~Danette

Had to let you know the fajitas were a HIT!!! Everyone loved them!!!
Thanks.
~Eugenia

Your server Mike was so wonderful...he was responsive, cool, calm and professional!
Many thanks!
~Gallagher

Just a quick note...everything was terrific and the staff did a superb job....Food wonderful and we will be enjoying leftovers for at least a week.
Please thank everyone and we will be in touch again...need to have a reception here in the fall I think.
THANKS FOR EVERYTHING.
~Barbara

Thank you so much for joining us in the celebration of my 60th last night.
Your staff did a fantastic job of making the evening a smashing success. Everyone that I have spoken with today is still raving about the food!
My face wears a permanent smile and a great deal of the reason for it is because of your caring effort. Many, many thanks.
Best regards.
~Beverley

Thanks very much Josh! The food and beverage were great and your staff was a pleasure to work with! Look forward to the next Geppetto great event!
~Jimena

Thanks so much for making our sponsorship event a great success! Thanks for the delicious food and fabulous wine choices!!! Your server Mike was really great and did a great job with his quiet set up in the back of the room.
~Mary

Thank you very much, the event went very well!
~Anne

Thank you, again, for the food at this weekend's event. It was PERFECT. Everyone loved it and I was especially proud to see so many of our kids snack on the vegetables! We had several comments from our volunteers and board members/guests about how great the food selections were, especially highlighting the healthy options.
When I thanked Geppetto for the food at the end of the event-- a guest came up specifically to share how much he loves what you do and commented on what a great team you are...I also had a spouse of another board member talk about how much they loved your food and how glad they were to see us connecting with you!
Thanks, again. We really appreciate working with you and look forward to the next opportunity.
Have a great week.
~Tim

Just a quick note to say thank you for being so generous with us and making our event launch a success. It was great-- we had 30 guests show up under the threat of major storms, and it was a terrific way to launch something that we hope will truly make an impact in the community. Your team was wonderful, the food was great...it was a great evening.
Thanks again for your generosity and support.
~Stephen

May 2012

Two appearance in the WBJ last week recognizing your philanthropic work as well as an AWESOME new idea on the local food delivery thing. Incredibly creative way to open a new revenue source. You are truly “doing well by doing good” and I am really proud to be associated with you my friend.
Separately, our company picnic was absolutely terrific yesterday. Amazing weather, moon bounce, pony rides, and face painting from talk of the town, a tour of the farm and the animals from our host, including my alpacas, and great food served with a smile from our friends at Geppetto. Thanks for a great menu and thinking of everything once again Josh. Truly appreciate it!
~Craig

Everything was great.
Thanks,

I just wanted to write and let you know what a wonderful event your team put on for us last night.  As usual, everything was beautifully set and the staff was courteous, professional and kept the food and drinks coming!  I can't tell you how many compliments I received about the reception, but of course I give 100% of that credit to Geppetto Catering - because a party wouldn't be a good party without the food and drinks!
Please extend my best to all of the wait staff and, your office staff is golden - thank you so much for all that you do! As I keep saying...you make this too easy on me...keep up the great work!
 ~Stephanie

Thank you so much for the great service! The food was also great.
~Ebony

What a night! On behalf of all of us, thank you from the bottom of my heart for being a part of our 10th Anniversary Gala. You and your team helped our event reach a level of sophistication we've never had. Your contribution made that possible, and we are so grateful. With your help, we raised a record $124,000!
Most Sincerely,
~Anita

I'm still getting rave reviews regarding yesterday's lunch. I am very explicit in what I order and your team did an excellent job.I packed up the leftovers and took them to the volunteers. They are always excited to see me -- of course, they were appreciateive. Thank you.

~Catherine

The food was great last night -- thanks!
~Jen

That was quite a day. I don't even know where to start to thank you. I've come to assume a delicious and fun pre-event with you each year. And you delivered again. But then to follow on with an after party cocktail event for 100. Here's what stands out. Your staff was as usual extraordinary. They kept smiling after all of those hours. And just kept the party going without a hitch. And they left the house in tip top shape. And folks/guests kept complimenting on the food - I know you've opened a new source of business out here if you are interested. Our thanks and our deep appreciation to Angelo, Sandy, Mike and Andres.
~Alex

The order was perfect...everyone is raving about the food. Thank you!
~Audrey

 Food was great. Thanks for supporting!

Thanks so much! Everyone loved the food last night and really enjoyed the great service and wonderful location. If we decide in the coming weeks to do the event again next year, I will certainly let you know. Thanks again!

Just a quick note to say thank you for all your hard work on our menus this week.  Today's large 100+ person meeting went really well....no issues with breakfast or lunch.  So, thank you very much!  
~Christine

Huge raves on the food and staff again. It's a classy reception tonight focusing on German lawyers of the Holocaust, in cooperation with the Association.  Our executive director is hosting - so its for a good cause, anyway.
Thanks.
~Ken

Everything was FABULOUS! Tell the drivers I said thank you, thank you, thank you!  And please give yourself a big  "pat on the back" for a successful order.  My clients were very happy.  Of course you know when they are happy, I am happy!

Thanks again and I look forward to working with you.
~Julie

This is PERFECTION!  This is why I keep coming to Geppetto’s; because even in our last minute haste, you still understand our needs.  Thanks. 
Best,
~Carlos-deShaun

Thank you for everything! it all went perfect. I wanted to express you my gratitude for your delivery guy. He was just excellent.
~Cristy

Thanks for the cake and coffee/tea yesterday. Everything went well - the cake was a huge hit! And the delivery person was very helpful - we had a little trouble at first figuring out where to plug in the coffee machine. When we found the socket, he had to move everything he had already set up - and he was still very nice about it! Thanks for the great service.
~Ai-Hui

I just can’t tell you how much everyone raved about the food yesterday!  It was a great event and you and your team did a fabulous job as always!!
Take care,
~Cindy

To the Crew!! At Geppetto’s, I want to thank you All for an outstanding job with my client this weekend. You made working on the weekend a breeze. To the driver.. I can’t remember the name thank you for the call you put in to the chief for my client. And the delivery on Saturday. Having everything here Sunday morning was great…we setup last night so I didn’t have to have an early arrive.There’s going to be an extra request for the brownies without nuts from one of your clients on the hill...  smiling
~Michelle

Thanks so much, food was great - help worked hard, especially women - coke was delivered as you said.
Fondly,

Thank you so much! I forgot his name (please forgive me), but he was one of the most professional, kind, knowledgeable and accommodating person that I have met from any catering company.  (I expected no less)  :) Everyone loved the food, and several guests asked for your business card, that we happily provided.   
Thank you so very, very much.
Take care,
~Yvonne

Thanks for a great evening! You and your team are the best!

~Mary Lou

Thanks for the lunch order on Friday.
Everything was delicious.
And the man who did the setup did a fantastic job.
~Lisa

Thanks so much for everything you did to make the event yesterday a success! I love working with your staff, and Top of the Hill is our #1 go-to venue for our events. The burgundy and gold tablecloths looked stunning. They are definitely our new favorites. Also, I loved the goat cheese and mesclun salad, and my colleagues loved the salmon. Sandy is a joy to work with on site and she is always so accommodating to us at the last minute. Thanks for all the little details, too: the candy and pitchers of water at each table, etc. And finally, thanks for storing our directors chairs for us. I do hope you get to use them more often for your own benefit, but it is such a blessing to us that we can ask to borrow them from you when we are up in DC.
Love you guys!
~Erin

Thank you for your assistance. The event went great and the food was delicious, everyone like it.
~Tina

~Courtney

Thank you and the Geppetto team for helping us put on such a fabulous event! All of the feedback we received was positive and lots of people really liked the venue and how easy it was to access.
My team had lots of positive feedback as well and you know how it is with staff – they would be quick to tell me if something was wrong! I really look forward to partnering with you again in the future on an event. Have a great weekend!
Warm regards,
~Beth

I have to tell you, the Class of 2012 RAVED about the food yesterday! Several mentioned that when they saw lunch, they saw “green” and were not turned off.  They really got into the healthy meal:  they absolutely loved the lox and bagels and didn’t really eat the pastries.  They loved the spicy chicken salad for the meal and ate ALL of the salmon. 
I just wanted to let you know that the Class is truly enjoying the food you provide. Thank you!
Best,
~Mioshi

Yesterday is one of my favorite days of the year to come to work to hear all of the positive comments about our party and yesterday did not disappoint. Some of the adjectives used to describe the evening were “first class, we had a great time, memorable, spectacular, incredible, awesome, personalized care, fantastic, elegant, and perfect.” We couldn’t have done it without all of you, so thank you very much for your making our party very, very special.
~Edward

Just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for making me such a lovely meal!!! I only wish I'd had a larger appetite, it was perfectly balanced and it was so nice not to have to just watch others eat or take a risk on a hospital trip. Have a great Valentine's Day!
~Lorraine

We strive to provide great customer service ourselves and I look up to those who do a really good job at it.  You and your staff took great care of mine and I (and they) very much appreciate it. I hope that we can do it again and we are now starting conversations about the next party.
Thanks,
~Ed

The food at the event this Friday was awesome. That soup rocked. What is your secret ingredient - drugs? I seriously ate 4 bowls.
~Mary

Just a quick note to thank you personally for the wonderful food, presentation and staff that you provided me! From the moment they arrived, til the moment they left, your staff was professional, efficient, always anticipating, and so willling to help in any way to make everything perfect! The food was a huge success. The clam chowder, beef, shrimp, salads, desserts.......well let's just say there was not one bit of disappointment!  The cake was exactly as I had hoped it would be and was the perfect finish to the event!
Thanks again for all you did to create this perfect memory!
~Jolee

I wanted to let you know that (1) Herminia is great!! I love her! And (2) the food is delicious. Thank you for continuing to provide us with wonderful service. :)

Again, thank you for your service!
~Helen

Just wanted to again thank your company for the last minute rescue you gave me yesterday.  After I discovered yesterday morning that one of our guests required a gluten-free meal, you came through with flying colors.  So much so that another guest asked to have the very appealing gluten-free meal the next time we ordered lunch from you.
Again, many thanks for a job well done!!!
~Brenda

The barbecue was a HIT!!! I think the entire office helped themselves before 11!
Thanks for treating our office today.
~Chrystal

I wanted to thank you so very much for graciously stepping in on yesterday afternoon to assist in "up-grading" one of our special events here. Your idea to add china and silverware was spot on. We are very excited about this event on Monday morning and will be looking forward to the delicious fare being provided by Geppetto Catering. 
I'd especially like to thank you for speaking with Ken in reference to our catering order. Ken was a fantastic asset to this process. His professionalism and patience in working with us to choose the appropriate menu selection was invaluable. 
Such a commitment to great customer service is to be commended. You can be sure that we will continue to do business with Geppetto Catering for years to come.
~Veronica

First of all, thanks for your group's support. The breakfast reportedly went well.
~Bud

January 2012

You have been such an important part of the success of our party. We have never been to an event you have catered that has not been absolutely perfect, and for that I thank you. It is not often that you find a businessman and friend that always exceeds your expectations!
~Joleen

Thanks for the break down. EVERYONE loved the food.  So, we will be contacting you again VERY soon. We have meetings regularly which require lunch. Spinach lesson was a HUGE hit!
We sincerely appreciate everything you did. 
Thank you for your help.  Everyone LOVED the food!
~Lisa

I want to thank you for thinking of me with an incredible array of food that arrived on Friday.

~Eileen

I just want to give a special thank you for having such a polished and professional staff today. Silvia is always so friendly, professional and just polished with everything she does and she always takes an extra step to ensure our kitchen is well maintained when she is here.
I just wanted to send a special acknowledgement to her; we definitely appreciate her excellent customer service!
Thanks!
~Shayla

The shortbread cookies that were served at our Christmas party in December were SO delicious that every morning I say to my dogs how much better my coffee would be if I only had a cookie to go with it!! (I know, I'm a sad person!).
The lamb chops were delicious too! So many people have commented since our party that the lamb chops were their favorite dish. Well done!!
Thanks for everything.
~Suzanne

Thank you very much for taking the time to call tonight and speak with Nancy and me.  You really put Nancy at ease with your concern for her well-being and by taking her food allergies seriously.  We both appreciate your kindness and patience in coming up with a meal that Nancy will be able to safely enjoy.   We both are very much looking forward to meeting you at the party and look forward to a great meal!
Again, thanks for your top-notch customer service – as we at our company would say, you’ve really Delighted us!
~John

Unbelievable - - incredibly generous of you as I know this goes against your policies. Please accept my heartfelt “Thank you” and I owe you a big one!! You are saving the organization a significant amount of money at a time when the Museum is literally counting every penny. It has not gone unnoticed by us and other leaders of our staff.
Thank you  - Thank you – Thank you
~Todd

Thanks for all of your assistance with today's catering.  Everything was terrific, i.e. delivery, setup, quality!

THANK YOU!
~Emily

Everything was absolutely fantastic, your staff was perfect.  They were so helpful and everyone was complementary of the entire day. Thanks again!!
~Joe

Your service today was above and beyond the call of duty! I can't believe that you were able to get me additional food for 13 unexpected guests after your truck was on the way with the original order for 55. Well done Geppetto Catering! Just another example of why we love working with you.
~Josephine

Today's lunch was wonderful! My guests kept asking who provided this wonderful meal? It was a pleasure referring them to you. Thanks for making me shine!
~Charles

Thank you so much for the kind words and as always your food was FABULOUS!  Everyone that stopped by could not believe how good catered food could be. It was fresh and well presented. You got rave reviews on the Chicken Salad; most had never had it with nuts. Thanks again!
~LaKisha

I'd like to extend a thank you to yourselves and your staff. Our event was great from stem to stern and your staff were awesome.  The entire evening went off without a hitch and everyone had a great time. Everyone loved the food and the cake looked great.  
Again, thank you for helping make our Dining-in one of the best in recent years!

I heard the event was lovely - and Geppetto shined as usual for the reception.  Thanks again for another great event.  I'll be in touch.
All the best,
~Stephanie

Excellent service, excellent food, as always!

Thanks so much for your assistance with ordering our lunch yesterday!  All of the lunch selections were a big hit with everyone who attended.  The pecan chicken with no spice was absolutely delicious and so moist that you could cut it with a fork!  Thanks for making our luncheon special and tasty!
Have a great holiday season!
~Cathy

Yesterday was AMAZING! We kept it a bit of a surprise and the entire team was blown away. We ate like kings and queens for the day - it was fantastic. Thank you for your generous help and amazingly quick turn around. You're the best and everything was DELICIOUS. A few members of the board stopped by and they, too, were really grateful that they could support the staff in that way. I gave out your contact info - so I wouldn't be surprised if you have a few new potential clients coming from the spread they saw. Our team gobbled up all the leftovers, so I told the board they'll need to order more for themselves in the future. :) As I mentioned, we have a few spring events and we'll definitely be in touch again. All the best for a very happy holiday season - you definitely helped me treat my team to that yesterday!
~Tim

I just wanted to say thanks for your help -- the food last night was great! I was very impressed and will absolutely be in touch about future events.
Thanks so much.

Thanks so much for another great event last week!  We received nothing but rave reviews from students, faculty and guests in regard to the food and drinks for the holiday party!
~Stephanie

The FOOD is WONDERFUL…..A HIT!
~Ellis

First, the evening was just wonderful. I cannot say enough about your entire staff, the food, the efficiency of your entire operation, etc. Most especially, I'd like to single out Aaron. We all absolutely fell in love with him. He handled every aspect of the evening with incredible grace. I've worked with an enormous number of caterers over the past 30 years - for every imaginable kind of event - and Aaron is one of the absolute best I've ever had the pleasure to work with! Thank you for making the evening a resounding success!!!
~Mary

Again - a marvelous job!
The food was absolutely delicious and I received many, many compliments.  I will be sure to pass your name on to any others who are planning corporate events. 
~Candice

Your food and service were impeccable.
~David

I have heard nothing but rave reviews on the food, setup and for Tuesdays Holiday Staff Party.  Everyone, including some of the most critical curators, have commented how wonderful and delicious the food was. The seared Tuna, mini wellingtons, vegetarian wellingtons were incredible and perfect for the evening.  Thanks again for doing a wonderful job.
~Keith

The food was fantastic and the staff has been outstanding! Everyone raved about the food – it’s been awesome!!!! Thanks!
~Stephanie

Just wanted to thank you for catering our holiday event yesterday.  The food was wonderful (especially the crab cakes and Portobello mushrooms).  Happy Holidays!
~Tonya

I could not wait to send you this note to let you know how pleased everyone was today at the holiday luncheon. Everything from the presentation, wait staff, to the delicious food and the wonderful music, it was a delightful time for the clients and the  employees. We had over 600+ individuals that had attended. We have received many compliments from our clients.
I’m sure your team members have mentioned to you that the mashed potatoes were a hit! 
In closing, thank you for referring Selma M. Levine School of Music to us. The musicians we had were wonderful and it really made for a wonderful time.
Thank you.
~Donna

My team is very pleased that Geppetto’s is catering our Office Holiday Luncheon; I think the selections you’ve made will be AWESOME!  Can’t wait and looking forward to continued business with you guys!
~Angele

Just had a Geppetto lunch. Love the cookies with the cranberries. Yum.
~David

Your team left a wonderful impression on my colleague's family.  My boss and the Director of Human Resources, lost her husband.  I was in Paris on vacation and could not make sure that the “Right” caterer was called and the “Right” Florist was contacted.  My hands were tied.  However, I had shared my confidence and love of Geppetto to my co-workers enough that there was no question of who to call.   You have no idea what it means to KNOW that you can place the needs of foodies like my fellow colleagues in the hands of a great Catering company. Your team reads my emails and pays attention to the details and laughs at my bad jokes and you have been supportive in our civic commitment to fight breast cancer as well. 
My niece is a Medical Student at Georgetown and she requested my assistance in helping her find a caterer for an event….I just told her right then and there – Just call Geppetto and let them handle it.  You will not be disappointed!!!
I say all of this to say, THANK YOU  from the bottom of my heart for the support that your company has provided me this year.  I look forward to continuing this awesome relationship in coming years!!!!
~Teri

It was wonderful!!!  Thank you so much!!!  We'll be repeaters next year!! The server was great!
~Judy

WOW thanks for the food on Friday. People are still talking about it.
Thanks for making our party a big success!
~Ai-Hui

Fabulous Party again...Thanks a Million!!!  Getting nothing but rave reviews about the food again.
~April

My apologies for taking so long to thank you for stopping by last Saturday to scope out the situation on Forest Lane.  You were very helpful to Bill and me and we appreciate your time and energy in pulling our event together.  I know Geppetto’s will do a lovely job and we are looking forward to working with you this evening.
~Susan

Great Job last night.  Everyone was very pleased.  The crab cakes were a “huge” hit and a lot of the attendees are Maryland people who appreciate good crab cakes.  Everything was fantastic.
~Jeffrey

Your staff was fantastic and put together a wonderful dinner.  I've only been hearing good things about the holiday party from attendees.
~Nick

Seriously, thank you for all you do for Art Night and the WPA! We have had so many people tell us what great food and service you provide. We love you - Thank you - Have a great holiday season!
~MDM

I wanted to share with you the outstanding feedback I received on the food that was provided today. The entire organization was extremely impressed and loved the food. We have some serious food snobs and usual critics and even they were impressed and thought everything was delicious. The beef was cooked perfectly. Fork tender and still pink in the center. The chicken was absolutely delicious. The gentleman who delivered everything was five minutes early, had everything setup for a great presentation, and was a real pleasure to talk to. In all, your group made the lunch a major success. Thank you!
~Jason

Jason The food was great and your staff did a great job working the floor.  Thanks very much and Happy Holidays!

Another milestone in our delivery of Hospitality!!
~Paul

I just want to thank you for the superior job that you and your staff provided to the event last Friday. For me personally, it was a true blessing to have you back - I absolutely had no worries about the catering portion of this event. I received many positive comments from attendees about the food/beverages, and most importantly, we did not run out of box lunches at any of the locations!
Your staff was very professional and helpful during the entire day. Thank you again!
~Mariane

Thank you for a great event - the food was delicious, and the presentation and tablecloths especially were beautiful.

Thank you for your time, patience and flexibility.
~Michell

Thank you for working with me on my dinner party.  The food was delivered on time by a friendly and efficient member of your staff.  He gave me perfect directions for heating the food so that I was able to serve hot food to my guest.  The food was delicious.  The food was so good that it was an advertisement for your corporation.  In the future, I will highly recommend Geppetto Catering, Inc. to everyone.

~Andy

Thank you for accommodating the changes I requested.  The event was great, the food was perfect, your staff as well.
The menu was more than I expected.
~Ken

We enjoyed the chicken skewers, the phyllo cups, the dips, and spreads, after hunting yesterday. The other night, I made a pasta dish and used the sliced italian bread with butter and garlic for "toasties" with the meal. We had the spring rolls for appetizers, along with the hummus spreads. They were delicious! So many people have written or called to say how much they enjoyed the Master's Tea. Thank you from all of us!
~Vicki

Just wanted to let you know that the service and food was wonderful yesterday for our luncheon event.
Thank you and we look forward to working with you again.

Someone said of your tres leches cake at my party that it was the best cake he ever had :)

I just had a chance to check in with my manager on this, and she said you did a fabulous job: “food was delightful, presentation was very nice, and catering staffer was lovely…”
I am so grateful for your help – you made me look like I knew what I was doing!  Thanks so much for everything.
~Susan

Lunch was wonderful.  The South African Delegation loved the beef.  They thought it was the best food served during their entire 2-week visit.
~Sarah

It was a smaller group than anticipated (rain didn't help) but the food was great and your two staff members were terrific.  It felt like a family party and in a way it was.  Thanks so much.  
~Kathy 

The event was great. The team that supported us on site were wonderful.

At Pepco art event! Love the duck potato thing and spinach goat cheese thing.
And the cookies!!!!
~Christine

Well done last night.  It was excellent as always. 
~John

Thank you for the great service of your catering staff. As always, very impressed with the quality of food and attention to detail. I LOVED the salads, LOVED the sandwiches and specially LOVED the red velvet cake. Thank you for your help and for dealing with my "last minute" request!
~Rocio

Everyone had an awesome time and loved the food.
Thanks for everything.
~Anya

A quick note to let you know how great your staff did on the Rumsfeld event last night. Sandy was on top of things and the food & beverage and room set was great. Aaron did a terrific job managing all the different spaces during the event between the 5th floor, the President's Office and the Atrium. He went out of his way to check on us and make us feel taken care of. He and I had a fun time pretending we were Rumsfeld as we did the walk through -- discussing where his book signing table would go and the rope and the stanchion. In the end, the set up we worked out was perfect!
~Kim

Thanks for taking care of us at Top Of The Hill. Everything was both well presented and delicious. Sandy is both personable and efficient. She did an excellent job making sure everything was in good order. I understand she was taking care of another group while we were there. One could not tell! You are lucky to have Sandy as part of your team - she is a great asset.
~Iris

I would like to express our profound gratitude to you and Geppetto Catering for making the 2011 SHIELD Awards reception possible. Geppetto’s sponsorship helped make the evening complete. We cannot thank you enough for all your support. It made a huge difference to us and the men and women whom we honored last night.
~Elise

I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful service we received yesterday. The food arrived promptly and was delectable on the palate. Everyone was raving how good the food was. We are very happy with the service and look forward to working with you in the future.

I wanted to thank you for the delicious meal last night.  We had over 30 people and they loved the food.  Please extend our thanks to all involved.
Thanks again!
~Liz

Both the reception and the lunch food were a big hit!!!! I knew I could rely on you. Thanks so much.
I will be in touch soon.
~Andrea

You cannot imagine the amount of people who have called to tell me how much they enjoyed the evening and “OH MY GOD! YOUR FOOD WAS FABULOUS!” which I heard over and over. We are still talking about the food… Since I was so used to doing so much by myself or with a little help, it was very difficult for me to understand how you would handle it all. Skip was absolutely right when he said “Let Josh do it, after all, he is the professional!” So true, so true!!
Thank you so much for all of your hard work, your incredibly nice and efficient staff, and truly lovely event you helped us to have. This will be always remembered as one of the best event we have ever had at our farm.
~ Vicki

Thank you very much for all of your support. I am very appreciative of all efforts made to assist us in having a successful event.
~ Helanius
 
The food at the picnic was great. I heard nothing but great comments from our employees. Your two workers did an excellent job and (were) very extremely helpful. I am looking forward to our next event that we can use your company and am happy to recommend you to anyone I know that is putting together a party.
~ Stewart
 
OMG....the brownies were divine!!!  There goes my diet!!! You totally made US look good!!!  What  a perfect meal after a truly successful meeting!!!  I cannot say Thank You enough!!!  The leasing team was seriously content with the selection and the taste was to die for!!!
~ Teri
 
The lunch was excellent! The CEO was very happy with the food and presentation.
~ LaToya
 
The lunch went well.  Plenty of positive comments on the food but more to the point... nearly everything was eaten!  That has to be a good sign. Thank you for your help.

Just a quick note to let you know that the food was wonderful. Everyone raved about it. I expect that I will be using Geppetto’s more often in the future.
~ Jessica
 
As always, the food was great.  Several people said they would like to have the beef brisket again soon.  The dessert was really good....everyone loved that, too, and the vegetable salad.  Your delivery person is always so pleasant and he gave me the Geppetto carry bag....thanks!
~ Audrey

It was fantastic tonight.  Thank you for such special service.  See you in October.

Pauline’s meeting is going absolutely perfectly today.  We are all looking like Rock Stars now.  Thank you for looking into our request for the brewing thermos and for your overall commitment to excellence.  YOU ARE THE BEST!  I love you guys.

Lunch was absolutely delicious and they truly enjoyed it.  I think the salmon cakes were a tremendous hit! Everyone loved them.

Thanks so much for the wonderful lunch.  As always Geppetto exceeds expectations!

I just received some wonderful feedback from my trainers on the food and service they received today.  Thank you for making our event at Credit Union House a success! I hear the salmon was “the bomb,” and that the attendant was amazing.
~ Raymond
 
I wanted to thank you for a wonderful event. Our guests really enjoyed the space and the food. Once again, thank you for helping this event to run smoothly and to be such a success.

Just wanted to let you know that Sue's event went very well - and everyone raved about the boxed lunches! So much so, that I ate one of the leftover boxes, and it was delish! Thank you both for working with Sue on this - they were all very appreciative as was I.
~Danielle

Dear Miracle Worker,
It's hard to believe that we could have a three-day marathon without one glitch but that's what just occurred. Everything about it was perfect (even the slide show!) - the logistics, the food, the ambiance - but the best part was working with you. Your insistence on denying us any responsibilities for anything gave us almost two full days to spend with our out-of-town friends without worrying about or doing anything, and for that and everything else we are immensely grateful. Too bad you couldn't hear all the compliments fom many attendees about the delicious food, the beautiful table settings, etc. etc. etc. With love and oodles of gratitude and appreciation,
~Jackie

Your team always provides the highest quality catering for not only our events but also meetings and lunches. I can always count on you guys to be on time and professional.
~Paul

Cheers!

The fajita lunch has arrived. The aromas in the office are wonderful and wetting everybody's appetite. Looks delicious and perfect. Thanks for the short notice (Josh I completely forgot I scheduled this and you were busy yesterday and Toby took great care of us).
~Candace

Lunch was excellent! Thank you.
~Julie

Thank you so much for all your help with the Diversity event. Everything went very well. I know it was time consuming (and probably a little frustrating!) but I appreciate all your time and attention.

Thank you EVER so much for the wonderful platters you delivered today. Let me give you a little background into my week. Unfortunately, our team was dealt a devastating blow with one of our co-workers on Monday. In her honor, we did a special "Remembrance Meeting". Sharing our stories and uplifting experiences we had with her. We had over 90 people there and your platters were just the right thing for such an occasion. We cried then we ate, then we ate then cried. There was more than enough food and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. I just wanted to say thank you because you made me shine today. Blessings.
~Carol

I just had to tell you how delicious the sandwiches are. I normally order the hot meals or salad entrees and this is the 1st time that I've ordered the sandwiches and couldn't be more pleased. I have a big luncheon next week and will be ordering them again. They are absolutely delicious! We all wish we had more!
~Minerva

The event went very well. The delivery guy was friendly and the food was delicious. Thank you again.
~Palkyi

I just wanted to thank you for all your help with our event today! We had a very good turn out, and it was an excellent event. The food and drinks were wonderful, and the service was amazing. I look forward to working with you again in the future!

The Strawberry Shortcake is a real crowd pleaser....as is the Fiesta Platter...and the fruit and cheese....this week, there will be more rave reviews. I get a lot of raves every month actually. Thank you! Also, I have now (this month) been at my company for 5 years - and that's 5 years of ordering from Geppetto's!! There have even been times when I have not let my groups order from anywhere else. They only do so at times just to add variety, but they always ask me to go back to Geppetto's in the end!! :)
I, and all of my company, love you all and thank you all for what you provide for us - amazing menus that warm our hearts!! Thank you.
~ Christine
