Corporate Board Meeting Dinner since 2013

Good Morning Michael,
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for catering our Board dinners. We are always pleased with your selections for us and I wanted to share with you some of the comments that I received about the recent dinner that you provided for us. In reference to the Chicken Virginian our Chairman of the Board stated that it was one of the best things he ever ate. Everyone else agreed and there wasn't a crumb left. Other comments were about how fresh everything always is and how you keep with the season for vegetable choices. Of course the desserts are always a huge hit as well but everyone agreed that you consistently offer a variety of fresh, delicious menus that never disappoint.
We sincerely thank you.

Reunion Dinner September 2014

Hi Michael,
I have been doing this for 11 years. I have never, ever heard the group talk about the food as they did this time. Is there a comment section where I can let people know what an excellent meal was served? The Cornish hen was a surprise they enjoyed it more than the usual grilled chicken breast they normally are served. BUT the raving of the flounder was beyond words. Thank you Michael, for assisting me with the choices I picked for Dinner. Most of all "the Monterey CVL26 group thanks you too.
You have my permission to post this as you wish.

Dear Mr. Rapier,
Thank you so much for being the caterer for our wedding. The food and service were excellent! You wouldn't believe how many compliments I received about how good the food was! You will definitely be my first recommendation for a caterer if anyone asks.
Best Regards,
Ryan & Rachel

Wedding Reception September 2011

Hello Michael!
I wanted to take a moment to tell you how absolutely wonderful everything was! It was perfect. We received rave reviews from all of our friends and family. We actually still are! They continue to talk about how professional you were, how beautiful everything was presented, how pleasant your staff was, how wonderful the appetizers and food were. I could go on and on, but I can simply say that you by far exceeded our expectations. We could not have asked for anything more! You helped to make our wedding day absolutely perfect and we are forever grateful for all of your hard work.
Have a wonderful day and thanks again!

Luncheon January 2010

Mike, I can't thank you enough for coming through so wonderfully for the luncheon today. Although I left before the meeting was over, my boss did come back up to his office and told me that everything was very good! As he repeated, it was an important meeting, and he wanted the luncheon to go well but not be extravagant. (We're all on tight budgets these days.) So, I think you did everything to help me, and it was perfect. If you need to provide names to other potential clients, please feel free to provide mine. I can't say enough good things about you.

Should the need for catering service arise again, I promise: you are the number one choice. It truly was a positive experience working with you. Thank you for your patience and excellent, without any fault, service.

Wedding Reception October 2009

Dear Michael,
I would like to thank you and your staff for the outstanding catering service you provided for my daughter's wedding at the Yorktown Freight Shed on October 18th. The reception hall was decorated beautifully and the food presented in such a beautiful artful array. The food was delicious! People were constantly coming up to me and asking who our caterer was because the food was so outstanding. We would highly recommend Encore...a catering service to anyone looking for the perfect wedding reception or banquet. Thanks again for a job well done!

Wedding Reception May 2009

Dear Michael (and staff)
Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for your help in the planning of the reception and in helping the actual events of the day go so smoothly. This day would not have been possible without all of you! I'm especially grateful for the patience Michael you exhibited with all my questions and helping me to plan every aspect of this reception (a steep learning curve for me!). We are grateful for your services and please accept this little small thank you gift for your time and service.

We had plenty of food. Everything was reasonably priced. I can't say enough! Well done!
