Our Guests Say…

Hi Paula & Clyde,

I wanted to make sure and personally thank YOU and your team for the OUTSTANDING program, Clyde was so lovely……and prepared the server team (led by Bryant) so well. I saw tremendous leadership, and their professionalism, on all fronts, was so appreciated. The servers glided in and out silently without disrupting the presentation….service was precision clockwork….multiple individual alcohol checks were managed….and every single request was accommodated with a smile and timely response. I couldn’t have been happier on all fronts.

I just wanted to say THANK YOU, and please pass my appreciation along to the team. I’ll look forward to working with you again soon!

Warm regards,

We were so happy with our event last night. The food was great, the staff was great, the pace was perfect, the private room was fantastic without a lot of ambient noise – all around a huge thumbs up! My guests were so impressed and kept telling me how much they loved the restaurant choice. Thanks again for being such a joy to work with and for helping us pull off a fantastic dinner. I’ll be in touch for next year!

You, Deb, Chef Scott and the rest of the David Burke Tavern Staff are simply amazing! Everyone made us feel so at home. You and your team were not just nice but also funny and charming. The food was delicious! Everything I ate, I savored as did many others in our group. I cannot tell you enough how much I appreciate you and your team!

Thank you!

Thank you for everything.
Everyone REALLY enjoyed the interaction with David Burke last night.
Excellent experience!!

Thank you so much for your help and patience as we planned this year’s summit dinner. Our guests were over the moon and I couldn’t have been happier with how the night went. – Best, Maddie

Please share with all how grateful we were and please let David know he can be so proud of his team. Excellent!! Debora, Matthew, Junior and the sweetest other manager… were just wonderful.

Thank you for all your help! I really appreciate it!

Terrific night, excellent service, the room was perfect (thank you for recommending the move to the Chef’s studio), the wine was superb and the food was incredible. My guests were very impressed and blown away about the dining experience they had that evening. I will recommend your establishment to others for any special event or a casual dinner.

On behalf of HSS thank you for helping in hosting our dinner last week. It was well received.
I may have to stop by this evening for dinner after everyone raved about the food.
