"Thank you and your team for once again going above and beyond in service for the TEI Holiday Party. The meal was excellent and I heard nothing but exclamations over the dessert in particular.
The service was as usual very well done, your service team should be commended on how well they orchestrate the entire dinner service. I want to call out the one bartender (he worked the temporary bar) he is fantastic, always a smile and asking what he can get me during set-up, plus he pours a great drink. The tax Grinch drink went over very well, thank you for organizing that for us. I really appreciate all of the staff and how helpful they are. Makes me look good."

"Thanks very much to you and the whole team at the club!! We had an amazing time and our guests were raving about the food and service. The band was also a great reference and we thank you so much for this. We have all finally recovered from a fun night…… All of the staff were outstanding and Jose led the team with his attention to detail. Thanks again to him! Much appreciated and cheers to the next event."

“I wanted to thank Laurie Farnum and Nagy for their exceptional service. Such a positive and professional culture of refined events is very difficult to achieve. Not only did your team achieve all the expectations, create a beautiful room, give all our guests close attention, but your team were supportive from start to finish. Please give my congratulations to Laurie and to Nagy who helped us achieve a wonderful evening. We had our COO of UBS, Zurich as our guest and he was delighted with the eveningt and the ambience of the venue .”

“I wanted to say thank you to you to Laurie and the catering staff for helping make our meeting happen flawlessly. I’ve never met a crew more professional and on the ball than your team. It was impressive to walk into a room and the AV equipment is ready to go with no adjustments needed, for a staff member to be there early to check on us (and to be charming and engaging to add!), and for the timely passing of the food.”

“I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Laurie and The National Club for the excellent service that allowed our event to be a success. The attention to detail, friendliness and accommodating service by Laurie and her staff was exceptional. I wanted to mention particularly Nagy Fam, Jaqueline, Carlos and Zio for their professionalism, friendliness and flexibility during the event. Not only did they ensure our guests were comfortable but they delivered their service with a smile and ensured the evening ran seamlessly. Our guests enjoyed their meal and the ambiance was perfect. It was a pleasure working with Laurie and her team during this process and we look forward to working with Laurie on any future endeavors.”

"A simple thank you cannot express my gratitude for the tremendous work you and your team at The National Club did for us today. Each time we work with you, you do an outstanding job, but today was different. Against the odds, you staged an event for 80 people with less than 4-hours’ notice and executed it like it had been in the works for more than 4 months. You simply said “we’ll make it happen”. Four very magical words turned a disastrous situation into a distant memory. Thank you and everyone tonight at The National Club for making our event such a huge success. Look forward to all the next times!

"I wanted to take a moment to extend our deepest thanks to you, and to The National Club team for the immense help you provided us on our very important day. All the staff was courteous and quick to help, and ensured a smooth-running event. Needless to say, the conference was met with tremendous feedback from the bank reps and the delegates – all of whom enjoyed the event, including the new venue and the quality of the service provided. Thank you on behalf of our team!”

All I do is tell you what I would like and somehow your wonderful team turns it into a reality –always courteous and extremely pleasant while doing so! Thanks again to everyone for a beautifully orchestrated evening!”
"On behalf of Kevin and me, I would like to thank you and the rest of the staff at The National Club for doing an absolutely outstanding job of our wedding. We really appreciated all of yours and everyone else’s efforts in making our day fantastic. You superseded all of my expectations! You made our day perfect! Thanks again for making our day so memorable”

“Thank you Laurie for organizing our breakfast. You have no idea how much pressure you remove for me. I take for granted how well we do things at the club but sitting there this week I realized yet again what a special place The National Club is and what special people make the magic happen. Thank you again for all your support and please let the staff know how much I appreciated their efforts.”
