"Alex, I cannot begin to express our appreciation for all of your ( and your team) hard work to make Chelsea and Ryan’s wedding and reception an amazing evening! We have gotten so many complements from family and friends on how wonderful the staff, drinks, appetizers, dinner, and atmosphere that made for a memorable night for all of us! Thank you so much for EVERYTHING!! We are all still on a high from the weekend! We look forward to the next event!" - Nikki U.
"Hi Alex! Thank you so much for coordinating my sister’s baby shower Saturday. It was absolutely lovely and everyone had such a nice time, especially my sister! You went above and beyond, and we are so grateful to have worked with you. It was most certainly one of the best showers I’ve ever attended/hosted! The food and service were wonderful. It was so nice to meet your sister too!" - Marie S.
"My husband and I are members at the University Club and used one of their event rooms for our bridal shower, rehearsal dinner and another space for our welcome drinks the night before our wedding. Alex was amazing to work with, super responsive, friendly, and helpful! The space was perfect, the staff was professional, and a good time was had by all! If you haven't been to the University Club, it is definitely worth a visit, the rooms are beautiful! Since our wedding, we have also had a surprise birthday party for my father. We will continue to use the space on a go forward basis and love having events there! Can't recommend enough!" - Kelly H from theknot.com
"Alex, Thanks so much everyone said it was one of the most beautiful events they have ever attended you and your dad and staff and Chef were outstanding and fabulous it was beyond perfect you created a gorgeous and memorable evening for all of us. It was interesting that so many of the young people just kept raving and commenting how beautiful and special everything was. The bride and groom had tears in their eyes when they thanked David and me. You are phenomenal." - Cheryl C.
"Dear Alex and Alan, We all were so impressed with you both, your Club and staff. Our every meeting and phone conversation with you before the event was profession, helpful, and gracious. Your suggestions about menu, arrangements, set-up and coordination with our florist, photographer, musicians and DJ were so helpful and always welcome. The event itself was spectacular. The Club looked wonderful; the meal was excellent in every respect; and the staff was supportive, professional and did everything with a smile. We couldn’t have imagined a better event and our guests agreed wholeheartedly in every respect. Thank you for making Saturday such a memorable evening for Lis and Jared and our whole family." - Earl I.
"Dear Alan and Alex - You both, along with your staff, out did yourselves in doing an amazing job Saturday night with Sue’s surprise party. The service and food were impeccable. Alan, the personal attention you gave us in the lobby upon our arrival was a wonderful acting job and perfect in getting Sue up to the second floor for the surprise. I think you’ll agree that by the look on Sue’s face when the elevator door opened left no doubt that she indeed was surprised. I am sorry I did not get a chance to thank you both personally for all of your hard work and extra effort that went into this party. Obviously, a special thanks goes to Alex who had to not only deal with preparing for the party, but also with our many special requests in order to preserve the surprise. Thank you so much Alex! You did everything we asked, and so much more. It was a special night and we all sincerely appreciate both of your efforts on our behalf. I cannot tell you the number of comments from our friends about how special this night turned out to be, thanks largely to you. You two make quite a dynamic duo and our Club is extremely fortunate to have such awesome professionals running the show. My daughter, Lindsey, and I, can hardly wait to plan Sue’s 70th Birthday surprise party in 10 years!" - Greg L.
"WOW, what a great evening, and "THANK YOU" to you, and your marvelous staff at the University Club. I was blown away with how beautiful you made the room look. From the details of the lighted trees, gold linens, tulips and roses, menus with gold print, and the personalized cheese trays and vase, just to name a few of the touches that made our Golden Wedding Anniversary Dinner so special, and truly memorable. I appreciate everything so very much. Chris, Alex, Nick, Courtney and Linda, were wonderful to work with, and gracious taking care of all the needs or requests from our guests. And of course, what would the evening have been without the delicious and beautifully presented food created and prepared by Chef Frederic. What a good sport he was to work with Don on his jalapeño pepper jelly bar. I am so proud to be a member of the University Club. And as my granddaughter said when she first saw the room..." It is magical." THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU." - Linda S.
"Alex - Terry and I wanted to thank you so much for making Mark and Jill's rehearsal dinner such a beautiful memory for all who attended. As I have said before, you always make sure we have a relaxed, enjoyable evening with our guests. Meanwhile you work with ease at your various tasks of orchestrating all that goes on - from setting up the rooms, picking out the flower arrangements (so beautiful!), working with your chefs and servers to make the food and drinks a delicious treat, and last but not least, running the slideshow! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts - you are the best!!! Have a great rest of the weekend!" - Patsy V.
"Thank you so much for everything you did to make the Rehearsal Dinner so welcoming and inviting for our guests. Even our smallest of guests were treated with such care. We received so many compliments on the service, the food, the room..... I simply cannot thank-you and the staff at the University Club enough. It was such a pleasure to have this special time with our family be so worry-free." - Theresa B.
"Allen, I know I told you verbally & now we want you to see in writing how thrilled we were with the entire presentation this past Sat. night for our son's wedding. Starting with you, then Alex , everything had a Ritz Carlton flare to it. As I mentioned, I couldn't believe Alex had that back up battery for the Microphone. We want your excellent service to be reflected in the gratuity as well. We would like the entire bill to be $$. By my account that would be $$ additional in gratuity added to the $$ and hope much of the staff receives as well. In addition to the leadership from you and Alex, we also wanted to note the special help from Adrian and "Charlotte"......I hope I have her name right. You & your team are a class act and a key to the rebound of downtown." – Dave M.
"Alex: Fantastic evening tonight! On behalf of Myron and the entire Walnut HIllls High School Class of 1956 Reunion Committee, thanks so very much for an outstanding evening at the Club tonight! Cannot remember a nicer group event in all our years at the University Club, actually. And please extend these thanks to Chef Frederic, Logan, Nick and the others who all helped make tonight's event an affair to long remember! You and the entire the Club staff continue to excel in eagerness to please in all respects, and the results show. I feel very privileged to belong to a Club which can boast the kind of staff we have to put on events such as tonight!" - Ashley F.
"It was a most delightful experience!! Every detail was perfect and you both have "turned yourselves inside out" in making it a memorable evening. It was, indeed, a privilege to offer our class members such an elegant environment and dinner for what will probably be our last big reunion. It could not have been better. Largely, as a result of your professional staff which executed so well, I have received a multitude of stellar compliments. You are the ones deserving the praise.Thank you both for everything." - Myron K.
