We hired three waitresses from At Your Service Wait staff for a Baby Shower. One girl showed up 1/12 hour late. They asked me a 100 questions throughout the day.
I turned on the oven to keep the food warm and one of the the waitresses took it upon herself to turn the oven up to 400 degrees and the sauce from one of the dishes boiled over and the oven started smoking. When we opened the oven there was smoke all over the kitchen.
The staff moved at a snails pace unless you told them to do something. After only 4 hours of being there, they asked if they could take turns eating. I Was very disappointed in the service.
We booked 1 waiter with At Your Service last week (pretty much last minute) and Ron who is also the owner was great at communicating through email, fast and easy to book wait staff, Ron lived close by so did the party himself. It was a party in our home with about 60 people. Ron showed up on time and went right to work, he did more then I expected. All the party goers were also very pleased with his work! He helped clean up dishes from the tables, continuously threw out the garbage and brought in additional soda and ice stored in the garage, made drinks for people and took orders for coffee, he was fantastic! At the end of the night, he was cleaning dishes by hand, which I did not expect at all! He was a tremendous help and we will definately use At Your Service again!!
I enlisted the help of At Your Service for a housewarming/engagement party. The two servers were fantastic. They were professional in appearance and in their manner. They were very helpful, did a nice job with clean up, etc. Many of the guests commented on their service.

We all know how much work goes into preparing for and hosting a party. Depending on the type of party, there can be grocery shopping, food preparation, cutting up vegetables, cooking, setting up tables and chairs, setting up the buffet or food area, putting linens on the tables, putting down place settings for formal sit-down dinners, setting up the bar area, putting out snacks, passing hor d'oeuvres, making drinks for your guests, grilling, servingt the food, replenishing food and snacks when needed, cleaning up during the party, cleaning up after the party, breaking down tables and chairs, breaking down and cleaning up the food stations, breaking down and cleaning up the bar area, taking out the trash, doing the dishes. Whew! That's a lot of work. And while you're doing all this work, trying to be the consummate host or hostess, making sure your guests are enjoying themselves and their needs are taken care of, you barely have a chance to mingle with your guests and enjoy your own party. It can be hectic and overwhelming at times. That's where we come in. We're here to help. We can do most of the above tasks for you, so that you can sit back, relax, mingle, and enjoy.
