First: We tried several places to have the dinner. Novelty Hill – Januik (NH-J) not only responded totally and worked with us to satisfy all of our needs; whereas, the others started to respond but I had to push them to get information. By comparison NH-J took the initiative to do a great job. We had people coming from FL, OR, CO and others who’s schedules and likes & dislikes were different. NH-J worked with us to meet everyone’s needs. Several of the people had not meet some of the others, or had not seen them for several years, so we needed a place to meet and introduce everyone. In order for us to talk and move about they set us up at the start with wine & cheese, etc. in a great area were we could introduce ourselves and talk.
NH-J worked with us to set a menu that had something everyone liked. They suggested wines that went perfectly with the food. Then we went to the Tree Room for a multi course buffet dinner and wine (for those of us who like wine). The food was excellent. We had a chef and owner of a corporate catering company and an amateur chef who specialized in gourmet foods. They knew good food. They as well as the other guests raved about the quality of the food and the presentation. The wine went perfectly with the food. The server staff was truly helpful. We had two children in high chairs and the staff made up special plates for them. All in all it was a great experience.
We all decided that for our next event we will go to NH-J.
