    Timeless Location with Excellent Food

    Jake's and the Sentinel Hotel will forever hold a special place in our hearts. Our wedding weekend and reception was perfect. This was such a classy, beautiful, and timeless setting for our reception. We had cocktails in the Library and the reception in the grand ballroom.
    We also had all pre/post wedding events (bridal luncheon, rehersal dinner, and brunch) at Jakes. The food was great for all the events, and the service was beyond exceptional; the staff was so attentive and professional. There is a f/b minimum, but their dinner options and buffets are better than most as far as what you can get for $50/plate. Working with Adrienne and the staff was the best part. Adrienne made sure everything was set the way we wanted, that we would meet our f/b minimum, and made herself available to answer any questions or to set something right. If you are looking for the perfect downtown location for your wedding or event choose Jake's Catering at The Sentinel Hotel. The rooms are stunning, but more important the food is excellent and the staff is great.

    Beautiful beautiful beautiful

    Our experience with the Sentinel was top notch! We worked with Diane from start to finish and she made sure we were comfortable, had all our questions answered and that everything was seamless and beautiful for our big day. They especially worked with us when it came to our menu as my husband has many food allergies. They took everyone into account and made sure all our food was perfect for all our guest. The day of staff was incredible and made sure everything ran smoothly! Thank you so so much! We couldn’t have chosen a more beautiful and well ran venue!

    Absolutely Recommend!

    Diane & her team at Jakes Catering were more than accommodating to our requests. She and her team were able to source everything we requested (including, but not limited to.. vegan options, halal meat) for a party of over 300 guests. Diane was always responsive and helped us enjoy a stress-free wedding celebration. She went above and beyond in helping us identify the right vendors and details of our DELICIOUS meal!

    Would highly recommend them for their professionalism, quality, and their desire to go above and beyond to accommodate our requests. THANK YOU!
