    Perfection

    Hannah and her team at Lake and Co. delivered an exceptional culinary experience that impressed a guest list chock-full of San Francisco foodies and local food fanatics.

    From our first meeting it was clear that Hannah brings value well beyond food and beverage. We relied on her advice to build a timeline for the event that had guests at ease and enabled us to enjoy the day. We valued her critical eye when discussing venue layout and art direction. She had a solution for any issue before we had a chance to worry. For example our place card holders didn’t hold up to the windy outdoor setting but by the time I reached the table they had all been neatly tucked into the napkin with the menu and a member of the staff had notified guests where to look for their seat assignment. These seem like small fixes but in the moment it was important that we avoided any awkward seating confusion so I appreciated the quick fix.

    Our wedding guests had a blast. I loved the lobster rolls that looked like a work of art. The craft cocktails were delightful. We could not ask for anything more. Book them early - these folks will be busy as word travels. What a day!

    Amazing attention to details

    From the moment I met Hannah on the phone I was impressed with how engaged she was in understanding my partner and I. She asked thoughtful questions about how we met, our families and our approach to life. The connection with her was instant and she used this knowledge to put together an amazing day. She communicated clearly throughout the planning process helping us with much more than the food, she took our suggestions and offered her ideas where things could be improved. Her experience running events was so helpful as we ironed out the details of the event. On the day of our wedding she had assembled an amazing team who were kind, put our guests at ease, provided attentive service and clearly loved working with Hannah. It was impressive how effortlessly the team worked together and jumped on every task (including moving very heavy flowers that needed to be shuffled around!). The team has an incredible attention to every detail and they make it all look easy. On top of the amazing service the food and drinks were incredibly delicious - everyone raved about how yummy the food was and how special the craft cocktails were. Hannah and her team were an absolute delight to work with and made our day truly special. If you’re planning a wedding you want Lake and Co by your side.

    Stellar menu, quality and service!

    Hannah and her entire team were awesome to work with from the very start! The menu was very important to us and Hannah gave us delicious options and included local ingredients for our wedding of 80 guests. Everyone raved about the food - the presentation, quality and service were stellar! I would highly recommend Lake & Co to anyone!
