Many thanks to you for making everything come together flawlessly. I never had a worry with you in charge. I can’t thank you enough. I look forward to our working together on many more celebrations!”

All of our guests were served promptly with their meals still hot. The staff was so attentive and organized, Jim and I were able to relax and enjoy ourselves. I was truly fortunate to have been able to work with you and your staff. You showed me that you genuinely cared about our wedding and made sure that all my wishes were granted.”

Cathy/Bat Mitzvahs in Fremont

“Before another day does by, I must write and express my thanks to you! The wedding was so lovely – one friend described it as elegant and intimate. Every detail was exactly as we had planned and the timing right-on. You are such a professional, I really feel secure with you at the helm. I would certainly recommend you and Schumann’s Four Seasons to anyone. Everything was beautiful, delicious, perfectly paced, and all managed without having to go bankrupt! My only regret is that I don’t have more daughters – but I do have a son, so who knows?”
Lynda/Mother of the Bride

“I wanted to write to thank you for the very excellent job that you did for us in helping to plan and direct the events of the Bar Mitzvah for our son this month. From the very start, your catering director proved to be an professional who knew what it would take to create the type of entertaining we wanted. At all times she was helpful and decisive and careful to guide me in the direction that she knew would produce the results we had in mind. The Shabbat dinner at my house was delicious and beautifully managed and served. It allowed me to relax with my family and friends and enjoy the evening, just as I had imagined I would. Our Saturday evening reception and party was perfect! Zachary, our son, said it was the best party he had ever attended. That was enough for me! The room looked beautiful, the food was great, and the mood/ambience exactly what I wanted. We all had a great evening. Thank you all very much for everything you did to make the Bar Mitzvah celebration so memorable for us!”
Laurel/Bar Mitzvah in San Francisco

“Our daughter’s wedding at Ralston Hall was a dream, storybook celebration due largely to your excellent food and beverage service and presentation. Your catering service set a quality underlying tone and smoothness to the reception in every aspect. I was truly impressed with your attention to every detail before the actual event. I was even more impressed with how smoothly each aspect of the reception flowed due to your careful planning and great staff. Not only would I highly recommend and praise your catering business for any event, but I can hardly wait for an excuse or occasion to plan another party with you and your staff.”
Jill/Wedding Reception at Ralston Hall

“Even though we’ve just hung up talking to each other on the phone, I want to put this in writing. All of our guests were treated to a lovely, memorable evening thanks in great measure to you and your staff. The tantilizing menu more that met expectations, and the service was elegant and gracious. You can put us down under the heading of VERY SATISFIED CLIENTS. I’ll look forward to my next opportunity to call Schumann’s Four Seasons.”
