    Rachael, Day-of Coordinator

    Rachael, our Day-of-Coordinator, was an amazing professional through our initial and rescheduled (Covid) wedding event. She helped us select food, rentals, table decor with a good sense of value. At our event, she anticipated and addressed many issues and allowed us to enjoy every moment. She was the best! Deb

    Absolutely delicious food

    We are so happy we chose Bartleby and Sage to cater our wedding. First off, the food was delicious. Among the hors d'oeuvres, some of the favorites were the deconstructed elote, lobster croquette, oyster, lamb burger, and duck taquito. We chose kale salad for the first course and the main entree was a choice between slow-roasted porchetta, pan-seared duck breast, or wild mushroom ravioli (veg). All of our guests were raving about how good everything tasted. They also made our wedding cake which was absolutely beautiful and delicious. Hats off to the chef Hans and the rest of the kitchen staff. We had an indoor bar and outdoor bar, fully open for the entire duration of the reception. We took recommendations for the specialty cocktails and they were all great. The service was excellent. We had around 120 guests and the wait staff did not seem to have any issues. The bartenders also did a great job pouring drinks and keeping the lines at the bars moving. Lastly, we were so happy to work with Leslie during the planning process. We originally wanted to have a cocktail style wedding but due to the pandemic and NYC's regulations, we needed to change our wedding date and change to seated dinner. During a real stressful time, Leslie helped make everything easy for us. Overall, I don't think we have a single negative remark or criticism about Bartleby and Sage.
