I had two people (including David) from Party Services So Cal help out at my wedding this past Sunday. We had bartenders, and a served buffet lunch, but I forgot there is a lot more to hosting a party for 75 people than just having the food out there.
I made a last minute decision to get some more help, so the hubs and I wouldn't be running around for ice or restocking the desserts/non-alcoholic drinks. I confirmed the booking on Friday, and didn't remember to call to check in until Sunday (the morning of the event).
They just rolled with everything. They were on time, were willing to do all the random stuff we asked, and were always around helping clear stuff out, and doing whatever needed to be done. They cleaned up, and gathered our mass of stuff we brought from home. My friends even dragged them into the photobooth at some point for some group shots because they enjoyed having them around so much.
I cannot recommend them enough. I didn't have to worry about anything with them around to make it looked like I had planned it like this all along.
Total disaster, extremely inexperienced bartender . He didn’t know how to open a champagne bottle! I will never ever again contact this website! Total waste of money! I want my money back!
Brittany came and helped with my baby shower and she did an amazing job. She offered to help with anything we needed and our guests loved her. Highly recommend using this company for extra hands at a party.
My husband turned 50 and he is an amateur mixologist, so finding a bartender who could make the drinks he makes well, proved tough. David was super understating when we spoke on the phone and was amenable to our version of recipes and the menu we wanted. He reviewed everything with me the week of and answered my detailed questions promptly. Karen was our bartender for the evening and showed up early, which I prefer over late. She did a great job, was friendly and tidy. It was great to have someone else make drinks at our house for his small surprise party.
Great experience, event went well.
GYD Party Services is my go to for bartending services moving forward. I am extremely happy with the service GYD provided for my event. GYD created a list of items I needed to purchase for my selection of drinks. So easy to show up to Costco and BevMo to pick up my items and remove the guess work. GYD showed up on time, well dress and friendly from the start to end. Their setup was clean. My event (wedding) had around 150 guests, which about 50% were drinking very heavy (mixed drinks and beer) through the entire night. GYD had NO ISSUE providing what my guest ordered. A list of mixed drinks were provided the night of the event. GYD made the process of hiring so easy and informative. David and Karen were super friendly, professional and fun. No issues with GYD. Ah, and they even went on a beer and ice run half way through my event! They offered and insisted! Incredible! GYD Party Services, Thank You for an amazing night!
Michelle was wonderful.
She was extremely professional and excellent with drinks!
Was not very organized, not happy about service. And the bar was a table which I was disappointed.
We hired two bartenders for our end of year party. Ashley and Michele were full of energy and a lot of fun
GYD was great, bartender Scott was fantastic! Will use again for sure
Great job drinks were excellent friendly and on time and good service
Showed up on time, happy with the service
My bartender Chris was perfect was presentable friendly & a excellent bartender. Everyone said his drinks were perfect he was very efficient clean had a smile for all my guests.
I will use this Company again.
She could had been more lively/helpful to guest. She did not have a very welcoming vibe to the bar, drinks were just premade sitting there.
Our bartender Junior was very friendly and professional. He provided a drinks menu when we were indecisive about what to serve and he was very easy to communicate with. 10/10 would recommend!
Our bartender was awesome! He was so responsive to any of our needs and was extremely helpful! We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The set up looked and service was extremely professional.
Hired a bar tender and two servers for a party at my house. One person showed up on time and was great. The bar tender was great, but was 30min late due to traffic. One server did not show up at all, but he did refund me the money for the no show.
Lots of fun. Great guy David.
Crystal was awesome, she showed up on time and jumped right in and made our event even better than we expected. We will definitely use their service again!
An adequate bartender but arrived 30 minutes late to the event I have in the text that he was supposed to be at the event at 5:30 and he arrived at 6 I was not happy with this in fact the time between 5:30 and 6 was a very uncomfortable time for me not knowing if he was going to show he also brought two servers I paid $20 an hour for the servers I paid $30 an hour for him he said I owed him an additional $195 is which I thought I paid everything on my credit card I gave him $195 in cash and I also gave him $100 as a tip that was supposed to be split up between him and the two servers like to make sure what gigsalad charge me thank you very much again my name is Antoinette
David is the man for the job.
Our bartender showed up early, was prepared, and professional, which is a great deal more than I can say for the past two bartenders I've hired from other companies. I'd hire GYD Party Services again. Although I might suggest in the future the bartender get permission to put a tip jar out, especially at a party at a personal residence. It's generally not appropriate to ask guests to tip the bartender at someone's home. Additionally I'd suggest the bartender come prepared with some drink suggestions, or at least a standard list of questions, e.g. do you like sweet or sour drinks, etc, for those you are undecided.
I had two servers, Ruby and Heather. They were amazing during my wedding day.
I used to be in events, so I tried to set things up as best as I could for when the servers would be arriving (and I would be off getting married!). When I returned, I saw that Ruby and Heather had followed instructions as well as went above and beyond to set up things in the most logistical way possible.
I didn't have to worry a single bit throughout my reception which, for any bride, is the best thing that can happen.
I LOVED them and a huge thank you to David, who eased my mind during first communication.
Food was packed away and refrigerated, trash was taken out, and tables were free of trash.
I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for servers. Trust me, I looked through TONS before I settled on these guys. And I am very glad we did!
Thanks again to all,
My husband and I would absolutely use them again! We had a bartender and a server and both were amazing, sweet, and everyone at the party loved them!!
The company was prompted to get back to us with any questions we had and was very helpful!
I didn't have much interaction with the bartender since I was busy enjoying the wedding but don't have complaints. None of my guest said anything negative about her either so I'm guessing it went well =) The only odd thing was that at the end of her shift she pulled me and my wife aside but she set the mood for something negative. She said she wanted to speak to us and then said that she wanted us to stay best friends. It was odd, just because she's a stranger to us. It wasn't welcomed at all. Besides that it went smoothly.
David and his team were incredible! Prompt, professional, and exactly what we needed. They really made the event run smoothly! Will call them again!
Mackenzie and Karen were personable, engaged, and provided top notch service for my event! We definitely appreciate their attitude and the outstanding hospitality shown! GYD is lucky to have these two! They will be requested at any other future events we have! Thank you GYD for having them! And thank you for all the assistance in making this a party to never forget! You made this experience a smooth one and you guys definitely delivered on your advertisements! 5 stars! Until next time
Arrived early and did a good job
We had a great experience with GYD as our bartenders.
The bartender and services that were provided were great for our party. All of the guests loved her. She was on time and interacted easily with all of the guests. Setting up the details were very easy and GYD even provided shopping instructions that ensured we had enough supplies for the party! Will use again in the future!!
David was great! Arrived on time. Was professional and courteous and made great drinks.
We loved our server! She was on time and did an extraordinary job! She was pleasant and accommodating and went above and beyond what we expected. GYD was in constant contact and very professional keeping us apprised at every step. We will certainly use them again!
David and his team did such a great job directing the flow of traffic and managing the buffet line, replenishing anything as needed. His friendly team arrived on time and after going over the plan, they took the reigns and executed with flying colors. I was able to relax a bit and focus on other aspects of the event knowing that the food was being handled. I would definitely hire them again! Thank you thank you thank you!
David was very professional and prompt. We look forward to having him here again.
Our servers did well in a complicated party, extra crowded because everyone was indoors because of the cold. Where they fell short was clean-up. They let us know it was time for them to leave and there were still guests here so they could not complete clean-up, but my and my husband's understanding was that they had cleaned up everything they could except for stuff the guests were still using. That was not the case. If we had known how much cleaning remained we would have asked them to stay for another half-hour. Every wine glass was dirty with none in the dishwasher - so we faced washing 100 wine glasses in the morning. Half of the plates were unwashed. There were still wine glasses, napkins and plates scattered around the house, even in areas where no guests had been sitting for quite a long time. The meat serving platters had not been washed and by morning when we faced them the meat left on the platters had hardened on and required much scrubbing. We had said last year's weakness was clean-up and hoped that would trigger more concern in this area. The mess that was left created a miserable morning-after for us.
Overall I was very satisfied with the bartender but feel the communication before the event could have been better. I bought several items that we didn't need and way too much of the items that we used, that's why only 4 stars. The bartender arrived on time was professional and engaging. I would definitely use the service again.
The staff was excellent and very attentive.
Great service! Thanks for everything
My graduation party was huge success. GYD Party Service provided a great & wonderful bartender who exceeded all my expectations for an affordable price. I highly recommend GYD Party Service and will absolutely book them for another party.
David and Wendy did a great job setting up and working our event. David was very communicative before the party and made it very easy to work out the details. We would definitely use them again!
GYD provides us with bartending and wait staff service for our wedding reception. They were early, got setup well, and we're professional and efficient throughout the entire night.
The only con I have is that communication could have been a little better/quicker in the lead-up on GigSalad. It didn't adversely affect the service in the end though.
Corresponding with David over the phone and email was a breeze. He answered all of our questions, and even posted pictures of the bar setup for us to see. Unfortunately he wasn't able to personally see to our event the day of-- but the bartending crew GYD sent over were on time, professional, friendly and creative! 10/10 would definitely hire again and recommend you do the same! Thanks so much for helping to make our wedding day a success!
Very professional and arrived earlier than what was on the contracted time. Definitely would recommend or consider for future events.
The service was outstanding! Everything was done exactly as I wanted. I highly recommend this group for events. They were all right on top of everything and I'm so grateful for their help at our wedding!
