While the waitstaff was hardworking and willing to help at the event upon requests, the waitstaff showed up more than 30 min late (we ended up having to do a lot of setups ourselves) and could use more training on proactiveness and personal hygiene habits when serving food and drinks (we had to constantly remind/train the waitstaff). In addition, there seemed to be a major disconnect in communication between the firm and its waitstaff. The wait staff did not come prepared in his attire expectation and did not know about the challenging parking situation on the event day. My understanding was that I was working with an experienced waitstaff firm. My experience told me that this firm still has some work to do.
Although the food was very good the fact that the food arrived well after the event, nowhere near the established arrival time made for a very upsetting situation. Phone calls were not returned. When a phone call was finally received my husband was greatly upset and since we didn't know if the food would ever arrived pizzas were ordered and on their way to try to fill in. I felt bad for the young lady delivering the catered food but this was a very important event for my husband and I and it left us with trying to deal with the situation instead of enjoying our event.
This is a heads up for anyone thinking about using this company for wait staff.
SETTING UP AND BOOKING
Communications were excellent when booking the wait staff. Two wait staff were needed for a wedding anniversary party. Lisa from the company did a great job e-mailing back and forth with me about the service, experience and particulars for my event. I specifically asked that the servers have excellent experience and wanted to assure they could handle all the particulars for the event. She assured me that the individuals being sent would have the experience needed and would be professional throughout our event.
I planned to have the servers arrive 30 minutes prior to the start of the event. When no one arrived at the designated arrival time, I became concerned. I contacted Lisa and others with GIG salad multiple times, but never heard one word back. When the guests arrived, we had no one to serve them appetizers, help get people seated etc. It was an absolute nightmare! Again, I contacted Lisa and others at GIG salad but never heard a word back from anyone. The two wait people finally showed up roughly 90 minutes late! I was told that one of the staff members had an issue with their child and was unable to make the event, so the second server had to turn around to pick up another server and bring them to the event.
WHAT HAPPENED AT THE EVENT
Without any servers I grabbed a few guests and asked if they could help pass appetizers. At one point, we realized that probably no one will be showing so we had a brief meeting among us for how we were going to handle getting people served dinner. 90 minutes later, the wait staff finally arrived, I provided a very brief overview to them both. Unfortunately, they both had a deer in the headlight look, like they had no idea what to do. It truly saddens me that one of the guests of honor told me, she saw one wait server was asking the other server what to do. She had absolutely no idea what it meant to provide service at an event! So, the level of service I had asked for was not even something that was considered during the booking. I was told by the guest of honor (very embarrassing) that more than likely that server had NEVER done this before.
AFTER THE EVENT
All the rented catering items had been placed correctly in the boxes on the side for return to the rental company. However, when the event was over, I walked into a kitchen that was a disaster. Stuff was everywhere and the kitchen sink was filled with old food, silverware, dishes etc. What a complete nightmare.
I have never written a poor review in my life but I can honestly tell you to NEVER USE GIG SALAD AGAIN!
I book alot of catering events and was referred to 360 event staffing from a co-worker. They are extremely professional! That's what matters most to me. They work well in a small setting or corporate company parties. I don't have one complaint. Always upfront and honest with the costs of things. I recommend 360 event staffing to all my friends and family!! Thank you 360 !!!

Throughout the event, our servers handle such tasks as event setup, event breakdown, offering drinks and hors d’oeuvres to guests, taking dinner orders, serving dishes, and so on. We’ve taken the guesswork out of hiring servers for your event. Our highly qualified wait staff is hand selected to fit your need for cocktail servers, party servers, wedding servers, and more.

An incredible event is all in the details. Bussers are a vital part of the wait staff and work diligently to ensure your event stays clean and tidy through the evening. Throughout the event, the bussers remove glassware, clear plates, pick up and dispose of waste, and assist with event breakdown.
Event captains are crucial to the success of an event whether it’s an intimate dinner or a huge affair. The captain ensures all staff members follow the established timeline, coordinates the set up in accordance with the floor plan, and serves as the POC between the front of the house (FOH) staff, kitchen staff, and the event planner or host so you can enjoy your party.
Coat Check Attendants:
Exceptional service begins and ends with the details. Our friendly coat check attendants are ready to greet guests as they arrive, check in and organize their belongings, and maintain a smooth flow at their station throughout the event. They are also responsible for setting up the coat check area and ensuring belongings are returned to the proper guest by the conclusion of the event.
