    A perfect evening.

    We held our rehearsal dinner at Surf. The space was perfect for our group. The staff were very friendly and attentive to all. The food was exceptional!
    I worked with Kris and she kept me informed from the first time we spoke, a full year in advance of our event. She answered all my questions, replied to all emails in timely fashion and kept us on time as the evening progressed. It was the perfect way to kick off our wedding festivities! I highly recommend Surf for any event. If need be, I would hold another event there without hesitation.
