“We have been working with Abacus for 5 years now both in our private home and at The Goss-Michael Foundation. Their range of service is unparalleled with that of their competitors. We look to the experienced staff at Abacus for small seated dinners at home, Private Openings at the Foundation, and large events at the house in the backyard with a tent which always adds a degree of difficulty. … even personally picked out the China, glass, silverware for the house! I think even more impressive is the way the team of chefs and waiters arrive to the house, execute a beautiful event and disappear without a crumb in the kitchen, as if they weren’t even there. They have our heartfelt recommendation.”

KENT RATHBUN SHOULD BE PROUD OF ALL OF YOU.”

“Our cocktail dinner party on Feb. 12 could not have not been any better than if it were for the White House and celebrities, which we are not. Kent Rathbun catering handled everything for me even though I was in Calif. and could not be here until a few days before the event. From the young woman who came to my home the day before and the day of the event and spent the entire day with me showing me where the tables should be placed and how we would move things if the weather changed and would allow us to use our outdoors to helping me decide what furniture to move for the children to making space for the adults as well.

Advising me on the flowers and helping me redo the flowers as the florist came with unexpected colors.

To say the food was the best of best would be saying too little. Clearly the best buffet dinner with an assortment of special dishes that we requested plus the special ones like the lobster shooters that everyone gravitates to immediately. Oh My, I just loved everything I put to my mouth as the flavors of the salmon and the lamb chops were beyond expectation.

To add to all the wonderful food was the service that is always superb and attentive to everyone who was at this event. I can’t say enough about the lovely servers and the chefs who arrived in an orderly manner and treated everyone with respect and made the event flow so smoothly.

All in all, I can’t say enough about the people, the food and the service that we had at this party and all the other events that we have had while using Kent Rathbun catering. I am never disappointed and always given a million compliments from the guests who attend.

Thank you , Kent Rathbun Catering , once again, for making this event the best it could possibly have been.”
