These guys are great! John is very easy to work with, very communicative and thorough, and the staff that he sent to bartend for our wedding was AWESOME! Everyone kept talking about how cool the bartenders were! Highly recommended :)
Thank you so much, Lyn. Tim, Sean, and Trent all commented on how gracious you and your guests were as well. Thank you for the kind words as well.
First off the owner was a pain to deal with as it wasn’t until a week and a half before our wedding that he finally got his paperwork into the venue which includes his insurance.
Once at the wedding one bartender was hungover and sluggish, the other didn’t know his pours to the point where we got multiple complaints on both of them. We supplied our own booze and they were supposed to supply the mixers in which they ran out of coke and sprite to where I had back up in my car because of having it for the rehersal dinner, they ran out of water, and had to rashen other mixers in fear of running out of that as well. As for the booze we have multiple opened bottles of the same thing opened, it would be understandable if maybe there was two as people may be ordering the same thing and a busy bar but 4 of the same wine half to 3/4 full is ridiculous. Also telling guests that they had ran out of stuff because they hid it for some reason. In the fact end they also tried to take home the opened booze they wanted as well instead of putting it with the rest. I had a gut feeling after dealing with the owner I should have just gotten my own licensed bartenders that I knew and just bought the insurance for them for the day. Turns out I was right. I will never hire this services again. For everything that we had at the wedding, the biggest and only complaint was about the bar tending service.
My husband and I were extremely pleased with the service we received from John and Bartenders express. From the planning process to the day of our wedding, they made everything very easy and seamless. Even thought it rained on our wedding day, they made sure that our bar was set up and our guests were happy. Our Bartenders, Jen and Cory were amazing, fast and super friendly. All of Our guests commented on how impressed they were. We couldn’t have been happier with everything and will definitely use this company again.
We used John and his team for our wedding on 5/19/18 and it was perfect! Myself and my coordinator were in touch with John in the months leading up to the event and he always got back to us promptly. He also was able to work with me on some special requests about the wine/beer/toast, which was great! On the day of the event, he had a problem getting ice due to power outages/storm damage, but I never knew, I only found out afterwards! The day of the wedding the bartenders were super attentive, my glass was never empty! They were also great about making sure empties were picked up and everything looked great. If you are looking for a professional bartending staff for your upcomoming event, I would highly reccomend you check out Bartenders Express!
No showed a wedding!!! And John’s answer was to not answer his phone! Run far and fast away from this company.....
This service was exactly what we needed for our wedding. Our bartenders were fun and attentive, and everyone had a great time thanks to their great service. Would definitely recommend!
Thank you, Katherine, this was the first time Bartenders Express served at this smaller venue at The Bridgeport Zoo, and it worked perfectly for your wedding. Sean and Anne both commented on the room, and it allowed them the ability to connect with everyone all night, and it made for an enjoyable time for them as well. Thank you for their great review, and thanks to you and your guests for a perfect event.
My husband and I worked with John for our wedding last month in October. At times it was difficult to connect with him via phone or email, which made things a bit tricky for us when planning because we were coming from quite a distance out of town. However, he was able to eventually answer all of our millions of questions we asked him and was very accommodating with what we envisioned for our wedding. When we asked him for some recommendations for our signature cocktail he was able to support us in finding the perfect cocktail for our special day. During the event John and the entire bar-tending team were all very personable and approachable. All of our guests had nothing but positive things to say about their drinks and the service they provided. The owners of our venue also commented on how wonderful they were to work with! At the end of the night Bartender Express even helped to clean up our tables and rented glassware, which was really going above and beyond. Overall, they were great to work with and really helped to make our wedding a fun day.
Thank you, Amanda, Jen, Cory, Ryan and I all enjoyed your wedding day, the weather could not have been better. Yes, you are correct, over the course of the 18 months we communicated through emails and phone conversations, we did have some challenges. This wedding was celebrated in a beautiful venue, Bliss Farm in Granville, Massachusetts, and it was our first time serving out of state. The challenge for us was checking on every single aspect of your requests, to be sure we could guarantee every detail to the tee, while also ensuring the venue was informed as well. This was also our first time negotiating through Massachusetts state and local liquor regulations, and this was a lesson learned as well. It was a great experience for us, and it sounds like in the end, we were able to deliver every single request. Again, our staff thanks you for all the kind words, and we all thank you for choosing Bartenders Express as well.
I loved bartender express John was nice and communicated all the way through up to the wedding. Then our bartender Shaun and his assistant were great. My guest loved how personable they were. They were very helpful and made sure that everyone was happy and had the best possible experience! I would recommend them to anyone!
I love working with people who love their job. It makes all the difference in customer service. Thank you for your amazing work!
Used this company for our wedding reception this past weekend. The selection left much to be desired. We asked several times if they were going to serve liquor in which they told us they were only to find out when they arrived that they only brought a pretty sad selection of beer and wine. Also were going to charge us an outrageous amount for ice so we opted to bring our own. They asked for 300 lbs and probably only barely used 80 lbs. The only reason the overall rating is that high is because they were polite and showed up on time. If we could do it again, we would've gone elsewhere for our bartending services.
I apologize, we were under the impression from phone discussions it was strictly a beer and wine bar request, perhaps the contract could have been worded clearer to have avoided that issue. For that, I am sorry for the misunderstanding. But we have found through our years of service, Bud Light is the number 3 seller in the world, Corona the number 5 seller in the United States, and Sam Adams is traditionally the top craft brewers in the United States. While all beer preferences are different across the board, this is usually the best guideline we have to go by. I am glad you had great service, however, and I hope we can offer some service modification or discount in the future that will help rectify this rating.
We chose Bartenders Express to bartend our wedding and we couldn't have been more pleased with the process. The owner, John was great to work with and the bartenders, Franz and Rebecca showed up on time, were personable and the guests were happy with them. Franz and Rebecca served over 150 people and there was never a line.
Franz, Rebecca and I all thank you for the great review. You had a beautiful day for your wedding, and we are glad we were able to contribute our services to your big day. We are proud to offer our Bar Set Up Package, it takes all the guesswork out of your shopping for your bar, and save you time and money as well. Congratulations again, and we hope to be serving your friends and family again for many years.
We used Bartender Express for my daughter's wedding reception. They were extremely pleasant, professional and helpful. I received many, many comments from my guests on how great the "staff" was!!! I would recommend them to anyone and hire them again in an instant!!!! Their fee included all mixers, ice and cups, as well as two or three bartenders. They gave me a shopping list for alcohol based upon the number of people attending. The whole experience with Bartenders Express was drama and stress free!!! They added to the quality of our reception!
Thank you for the great review, and we are also proud to offer our Bar Set Up Package, it allows us one more service to provide, and take the guesswork our of the proper amount and types of mixers needed for any given event. This was also our first event at Pinewood Lake, and we hope to go there again, beautiful spot for a beautiful wedding.
John was extremely professional and responsive from my first inquiries into Bartenders Express. The week before my wedding, one of the bartenders/servers reached out to me several times to make sure they knew exactly what I wanted. On the night of my wedding I had several guests come up to me and say how fast and friendly the bartenders were. I would definitely use Bartenders Express again and recommend them. Pricing was very reasonable as well! Thank you John, Kim, and Jessica!
Thank you Amy, Kim and Jessica both commented on how gracious and how genuinely nice everyone was as well. It's always great when the staff is having as much fun as the guests we serve are having, and your event was one of those nights. Thank you again for this nice review and for choosing Bartenders Express.
So happy we chose Bartenders Express! John was so great to work with - great communication beforehand and obviously very experienced. Excellent service and delicious strong drinks - can't ask for more! We would not hesitate to use them again!
We used Bartender's Express for our 175 person wedding. John was fantastic to work with as were his staff. We provided the alcohol and Bartender's Express provided the mixers. Our crowd consisted of partiers and the bartenders were able to keep up and keep control of the night. Thank you John and your crew!
I worked with John on a client's wedding and he was responsive, consultative and flexible - all of things an excellent vendor should be! Our bartnenders Pamela & Ricky were professional, personable and kept the line to a minimum. I always enjoy working with Bartender's Express and can't recommend them enough!
Thank you Lauren, we always appreciate it more when a planner has great things to say about our service. With all the events you see over time in this business, you can truly tell the best from the rest. We too were also impressed by how professional and prepared you and your staff were for this event, all these things make for a great experience for the client as well. We look forward to working with again, and we heartily recommend Lauren O Events to anyone looking for a top shelf planner to make their event stress free from beginning to end.
I was able to book Bartenders Express under their hourly rate and provide all the drinks/cups/ice/napkins and everything, which is a great deal! Four days before my wedding, our bartender Cory emailed me with their contact info in case we needed anything last minute which was fantastic. Everyone loved him and he was incredibly friendly and professional. I highly recommend their services. I received fantastic service.
Thank you, Laura, from Bartenders Express and from Cory as well. It was our pleasure to serve your wedding, and we are especially pleased that our service was up to your expectations.
Utterly reliable, affordable, and our bartender, Pam, was the best! Everything arrived on time, so there was no pressure. When you worry about so many moving parts to an outdoor wedding reception, it's great to have someone you can count on.
I hired Bartenders Express for my daughter's wedding for 137 guests on Sat, Sept 24. I had a special arrangement where we supplied the booze since we had specific choices we wanted to offer. They showed up on time as promised, setup promptly and with little direction, serviced our guests with a smile, and then cleaned up and left the area and supplies perfect. We hired two bartenders and one barback and never saw a line at the bar, service appeared to be prompt and our guests were very happy with the service. The 20% gratuity was also added to the bill so that was one less thing we had to worry about taking care of on that very busy day. I would highly recommend Bartenders Express for your event bartending needs. (PS The one less 1/2-star was due to some delays in communication by email.)
Finding a bartender for my wedding was the hardest task, and last vendor to be booked. After talking with John I felt confident I picked the right bar service. John worked with me and the venue and everything was just perfect for our big day! Highly recommend Bartenders express!
I can't say enough great things about John and his people. He was so helpful and no nonsense during the planning process, I loved working with him. We brewed all of our own beer for the wedding and he helped us present everything perfectly. His staff was attentive, quick, and professional. A real stand out moment was that one of the bartenders kept coming to my groom and I and making sure we had drinks the whole night. It's easy to get caught up in the night and that gesture really meant a lot.
Our Bartender Liz was fantastic. She showed up on time and kept all the cups filled. She even went out of our her way to help make sure the bride wasn't seen by quests arriving early. My email contact was Jon and he was great. Very knowledgeable and professional. I would recommend Bartenders Express for any function you need bartending for.
Bartenders Express was exactly what a vendor should be. Helpful, easy to work with and professional. When I asked the venue contact if she had ever heard/worked with Bartenders Express before she said, "seventeen years, never an issue." Add one more wedding to the books! The bartenders were fast, friendly and made a mean Moscow Mule! We had a wonderful experience working with them and if I could relive the wedding (which I wish we could!) I would hire them again and again. Ten-star rating. Thanks for everything!
Great service from beginning to end. Quick responses to all my questions months leading up to the event. The bartender Riley was phenomenal! Couldn't have asked for a more professional, laid back service. Price for our event was the best we found in Connecticut and there was no sacrifice on service delivery or professionalism.
I can't possibly say enough good things about working with John and our bartender, Jen. We planned a large surprise party for my wife and initially hired another bartending company. It was clear early on that it was not a good personality fit and we started looking for other options. I am so thankful that we found John.
He was responsive, organized, and completely accommodating. Our bartender (Jen) showed up punctually and set up the bar on her own. She was kind, organized, and a genuine joy to work with. Our guests had nothing but positive things to say. Without Bartenders Express the event would not have been the hit that it was. I would hire John's company again in a heartbeat.
