I was involved in hosting a reception in the Hugh Lane Gallery on the 20th February last prior the showing of “Eliza Lynch; Queen of Paraguay” in the Dublin Jameson International Film Festival. For five hundred guests, the list included President and Mrs Higgins, Ambassadors, Senators, Ministers and guests from the Arts, Entertainment and Media world, so only the best would do. After considering several highly recommended caterers we eventually engaged Berman and Wallace. From our first meeting with Barbara Berman we were impressed with the efficiency and confidence with which she approached the task. The menu was carefully constructed and there were several tastings of wines (knowledgeably suggested by Barbara) until we were completely satisfied. The food was exceptional and made with only the very best ingredients, beautifully prepared and presented, and within the stated budget.

On the night, Barbara and her charming and efficient staff dealt with all catering issues leaving us to attend to our guests, and the event went very smoothly. The outstanding food and wine drew many delighted comments from the guests. Barbara covered all the small details that went to make it a successful and memorable night, and I and my team are very grateful. I would recommend Berman and Wallace enthusiastically and unreservedly.

Kind regards
