Response from Lore Salad:
You are welcome Ms. Assal R.!It was an honor to be hired to work a powerful cocktail event,My team and myself enjoy every moment of it.Please keep us in mind for future events.
We recently used Lore Salad for a party at our house, with @ 50-55 people, a mix of adults and children. Rene helped with serving the food, making sure guests were taken care of, cleaning up, and cutting / serving the cakes. He was very professional upon arrival and immediately asked what we expected of it. Before the food arrived, he spent time familiarizing himself with our kitchen. When the food was delivered, Rene immediately went out to help bring everything inside. He was very self-sufficient and figured things out himself. He warmed up certain things in the oven, kept food fresh, set things out, etc. When most of the guests had arrived and people were eating and mingling, he made sure plates and glasses were cleared, washed whatever needed to be cleaned promptly, and even went from kitchen to the family room to the deck and downstairs patio to help clean up, all while making sure everything in the kitchen was good, too. He was very cordial and polite with all our guests, and we got many compliments re: just what a nice, respectful and super-helpful person he is. At the end, he cleaned and swept up the kitchen as well. And the best part is that his rates are absolutely reasonable. We were very satisfied with Rene and will not hesitate to use him again, and cannot recommend him highly enough. Thank you, Rene!
Response from Lore Salad:
Fantastic Ms. Linda Huang ! Fills me with happiness that you like our service.I'm very honored that you chose our company for your event.It was my pleasure to serve your wonderful family Thank you soo much.Please keep us in mind for future events.
I was really impressed with how hard these guys worked. They were friendly and they were on top of everything. They cleaned up constantly and everyone liked them. I can't recommend them enough. I plan on using them again in the future.
I hired 3 waiters from Lore Salad to help me with my New Year's Eve party. I had more than 90 guests. Lore Salad did a fantastic job. They are professional, polite with great attitude. I highly recommend them for your event.
I specifically order Lor Salad because we used them last year at our holiday function and wanted to get the same level of quality and friendly service that we received and got last year. This year's crew was disappointing. While they served and handled the event in a good manner, they were not great compared to last year's staff. The servers we had were not as friendly, did not know what was being served, brought out too much, too early, and did not ration the hors d'ouevres or stagger serving them. The service was ok, but not great. Next year I will think twice before using them, if at all.
great service from both bartender and waiter. very attentive.
Lore far exceeded my expectations! He was such a great addition to our event! He brought his own portable bar which looked so good, he provided beautiful glassware and did a fantastic job mixing our custom cocktails and drinks. I would definitely hire Lore again!
I couldn't but .ore to be happy with him. He promised 3 and got 4 why he noticed that the bar seen was over loaded with guests
I gave him 5 for effort and professionalism Really happy to have met him. THE Only flaw was the 2nd waitress left due to so.e foot issues half way in the event but that is ok.
He was there and event coordinator actor both ha d in ha d did it
Amazing work and clean up ...thanks
We hired a bartender for a Christmas party for over 20 people. Daniela was great. She arrived early and prepped her station. She offered to wash the glassware before leaving. Everyone at the party was happy with their cocktails and drinks.
The wait staff was amazing, and Lore was kind and easy to work with.
Very hardworking staff and willing to do anything to help!
Arrived promptly on time, well dressed and courteous behavior
Rene, our bartender, and Tirana and Mercedes, our waitstaff, were absolutely exceptional at our summer party for about 45 guests. They arrived early, set things up exactly as requested, and kept everything humming along without a single bump. I have never been so relaxed at my own party. Guests were asking all night where we found them. At the end of the evening, they gave us a huge head start on the clean up. Plus, they were just delightful people. Couldn’t be happier.
How could just one waitstaff person provide so much? Lore stepped in and really stepped up the tempo and fun at my brunch. I was basically behind in my party prep, but Lore came in with only one hour to go and prepared a fantastic presentation. Lore made some quick suggestions and, for example, transformed my everyday bacon strips to a rolled and baked chef’s delight. As I said, I was behind in my prep and before I knew it, Lore had prepared another beautiful and delicious frittata. In addition, he served my guests their Mimosas and Bloody Mary’s with just the right garnishes and attention. From start to cleanup finish, my brunch was so much fun - I certainly could not have done it without Lore!
First, the positive: the two ladies, Jesy & Selena, were very nice. They did a fine job serving the cake; packing up the food and clearing the tables from the guests. My recommendation to Rene was to have these 2 ladies work separately with more experienced people so that they will learn how to work a party without being told to do something. They stand together too often. My kitchen was never tidy as requested. I went to the food tent, saw no paper plates, then went back to the house to retrieve more, to find out the paper plates were already in the tent, however, the lady just didn't take them out of the package. She just stood in one place. I gave direction where to put the left over food in a large refrigerator in the basement and they stuffed it in a small fridge behind the bar that didn't work. We were upset as we were taking that food over to friends to enjoy the next day. About 15 pounds of food, mostly chicken, that we had to discard. It is fine to be pleasant, however, when you pay premium prices, you expect better experienced help. Please have them properly trained.
Brian was absolutely awesome and I would have him back in a heartbeat!! He was timely and jumped right in to help make our event successful. All of our guests were well taken care of and many wanted to know where I found him. I think they want him to attend their next event. 😊😊 I would definitely recommend him for your event!!
Renee was the bartender for our party. He arrived pretty early than the party for the setup. He was well dressed, greeted the guests and the cocktails were great. My guests have complimented him and loved his service. I’ll have Renee from Lore Salad for all my future events and I’ll definitely recommend him. Thanks, Renee 😊
Out of this world! Loved having him at our event, everyone said they didn’t have to lift a finger! Absolutely outstanding service. Will definitely hire Lore again!
We had Renee, from Lore Salad, bartend at my husband's 40th birthday party. He was awesome! We had several complicated featured cocktails, which Renee did a great job with. He arrived early and did a great job setting everything up, and he was very professional and friendly. All of my guests raved about him and asked for his contact info for future events.
I was also impressed with the booking process. I received a lot of quotes from bartenders through GigSalad, but I loved that Lore reached out to me personally to find out some more details about my event before sending a proposal. He followed up a few days before the party to make sure he had all of the correct details, and he I really appreciated his excellent customer service and communication.
We will definitely use Lore Salad again for future parties!
Great service, on-time, very polite!
Will use them again!
Lore was prompt and professional. The bartender and waitstaff were well trained, courteous and provided great service.
Couldn't be happier!!
I can’t think of a better crew. Some of the best people you can count on.
He was very professional and was very polite. Highly recommend!
He did a great job
Provided excellent service to my house party! Showed up on time, polite and provided many mixed drinks for my event! Definitely will request his service for my next month event!!!
I actually run my own bartender business and I had to reach out to Lore on a super last minute emergency for an event starting with in about 4 hours. Within an hour of reaching out, Lore set me up with a professional experienced bartender to cover the event on time. The customer was extremely satisfied with the service. In 4 years of business, we have never had a no-show for an event, and I have Lore Salad to personally for thank helping keep that streak alive! Would happily recommend him and his staff for any event!!
I specifically contracted with Lore Salad to provide pre-dinner/dinner service at one month before Christmas Day dinner. I chose him because of his listed experience, and his ad presents as a single provider, not a "service" that sends whoever. I had several specific texts with him about arrival time and arrangements, and he never indicated that he had alternate staff that might be sent. Unfortunately, the service person he sent, did not have sufficient experience to handle a dinner party for 10 (all of the food was prepared, she just needed to serve appetizers and freshen drinks). When it came time for dinner service, the timing was all off and my teenage sons had to help her out or it would have been a complete disaster.
I am so glad I hired them. I can't say enough good things about their service. They arrived early and took over the kitchen and bar, and afterward, everything was clean and put away. Very professional and polite. All around a five-star service. Highly recommend and most definitely will hire them again.
Great experience! I hired a bartender and wait-person for a private party. Team was on-time, efficient and very polite.
Loved my bartender! She was very professional!
We can summarize our event as being Epic due to the great service we received from Rene and Tarana. All the guests enjoyed bar services with Rene who made our event truly memorable with his smile and spread of amazing drinks beautifully displayed. We look forward to having Rene and Tarana back our next event and have and highly recommend them to our friends and anyone who reads this post. You will not be disappointed with their great service.
Edgar and Monica were fantastic! They made our Thanksgiving dinner with 30 guests so much more manageable. They arrived promptly at the time we decided and worked to make everything perfect. They were very easy to work with and stayed on top of everything that we needed. They even added extra little presentation touches with how they arranged our buffet table and desserts. I really could not have pulled it all off without them. I will definitely use them again. I give them my highest recommendation.
The bartender arrived an hour late. He said it was due to an accident on 95, then said he missed the highway exit. We ended up bringing our own ice, cooler and bottle openers, (Which he was supposed to provide) because he was so late. Although he was courteous and helpful after he arrived, I was disappointed; plus I paid for 4 hours of service. This was a surprise party and he arrived after the guest of honor. I realize that things happen, but one hour late is unexceptable. In northern VA you should allow extra travel time, heavy traffic is the norm. It’s better to be early than LATE.
The servers and bartender we hired were roughly an hour late to our wedding. That caused us some stress. Once they arrived, they were spectacular, friendly, helpful, professional.
Rene was excellent. He helped with arranging to cleaning. Super fast too. Always had a nice smile on his face. We plan to make him a regular for all big events.
He arrived on time and did a good job preparing the bar. The only issue we had was, we weren't able to get a hold of anyone to help us go through what was needed and what exactly the bartender was bringing.
Amelia arrived early and was a tremendous help from the moment she arrived. Lore was great about reaching out before the event to ensure that our expectations were met. I would absolutely use them again and would recommend them to anyone interested in assistance with an event.
Fabulous barman polite helpful very organised and a great cocktail maker!
They provided the best service I have ever used. Got waitstaff for a party of 50 people and it was done seamlessly by them. They made it all so easy and well managed, truly a professional service. Would hire again and again. Highly recommend.
On time went above and beyond would hire again and again
Rene was nice to work with. The girl he sent was very nice and kept things clean. However she lacked experience. She was extremely slow to make drinks and she didn’t seem to know how to make drinks. She made several margaritas however we noticed she didn’t open the bottle of tequila so not exactly sure what liquor she used. We requested chocolate cake shots and she served them with lime wedges. We also specifically requested someone who could make a good old fashion and she was unable to make them well. Rene is obviously the one with experience and we wish he stayed however it was probably our mistake since we requested a female bartender although we asked several times that the person be experienced
I hired 2 waiters for a birthday party. The staff was on-time, very professional, and knew exactly what to do and when. Both were on their feet non-stop making sure our event went smoothly. I would definitely hire again for a future event.
They were on time Andy ready to work his team was very professional and I hope he will come back next year
Very professional excellent services very hard working
Response from Lore Salad:
Mr.Paul I.Thank you! It was a pleasure and honor to be at your event helping with your event as a Personal Chef.Looking forward to your next event.
Rene was great. Could not have asked for any thing more. Definitely made our party of 60 with kids running around everywhere a lot easier on us.
Very well trained staff. Well dresses and courteous.
Highly recommend Lore Salad!
Rene was prompt, professional, and experienced. He assisted with our wine dinner party for 20 people with ease. He was quick to recognize guests’ needs, help with course plating, dinner service, refills, and clean up. We will definitely hire him again.
Over exceeded our expectations
