Well you guys have outdone yourselves. It seems like Jake’s was overhauled… cleaner, sweeter smelling, neater.

The staff, from the manager (a gem) to Noel, the man at the door (great guy) and every bartender in between was gracious, friendly, helpful and delightful!

AND the food was the best yet. Plenty of it and delicious!!!

Could not be happier with this event and will see y’all in 2017!

Thank you!!!


ABC Radio Reunion



I wanted to thank you for helping to organize a wonderful time for our sorority reunion. Everything about the night was perfect and everyone is still raving about it and asking when we can plan the next one! The planning of the event was so simple! All of the details were planned out and contracted within an hour of my first call to you. Also, the communication before the event was excellent. My family owns an event planning company so I understand the details which go into planning parties. I was highly impressed by the customer service I received while working with you. The night of, the staff was so friendly and helped to make the party a success. The personal attention from our private waitress, bouncer, and party planner was such a great added bonus. I simply couldn’t have asked for a better evening. You will definitely be hearing from me in the near future to plan more events.  Once again, thank you for everything (from all of Sigma Phi Delta), looking forward to working together again soon.



Living Room

Hi All,

Again, I just wanted to thank all of you as well as the staff at all the locations for an amazing time.  This time was even better than the first and everyone was astounded by the staff, service, and selection. I’m sure this won’t be our last time planning an event with you and look forward to working with you in the future! Thanks again and have a happy and healthy holiday season!




Christine, Kate, Niki, & Brittany,

Words can not express how amazing the event went, because of your sweet

staff, brilliant food and amazing atmosphere.From beginning to end, you

were attentive and supportive.  Our “bar Friend” Ryan was great and our

teddy bear of a bouncer Ivan was truly wonderful. We are an eclectic group

and we run the range of attendees. Your staff made everyone feel welcome,

they were respectful,fun and engaging. Truly, it was the perfect venue. I

can’t speak highly enough about the whole thing.

Thank you for facilitating such a safe, hip and comfortable space!

We look forward to working with you again,

Everything worked out great. The planning process was simple. The place was perfect. The service was excellent. I will definitely utilize Eat, Drink, and Be Merry again.



Super from start to finish. Great food, bar staff and security people. Could not have asked for more and I have been getting a steady flood of email from guests literally raving about what a great party it was. We used you three years ago for our reunion and we will use you again!




Hi Christine, Kate, Niki, & Cortney!

We had a blast! Couldn’t be happier. The staff was so nice, friendly, and attentive. Manny the bartender was the best of all. We will be using you more often and passing on your name to others who are looking for wonderful experience.

Thank you ever so much and you will be hearing again.




Hi! The party was great!  Everyone I dealt with from beginning to end were amazing.  Carey was wonderful and the bartenders were attentive and very nice.  I have no complaints!  I will definitely recommend you guys and I’m sure my husband will use you for future work functions.  Thank you for all your work and help in making my husbands party a success!




From my perspective, it was very easy to plan and affordable by NY standards which I am VERY grateful for and will bring me back for future events with you.  I also plan to share with about a dozen other alumni offices across the country who also use NY venues.  Hope it brings you some business!


To Christine and the gang –

I was just about to call you when I got this e-mail.

Everything turned out absolutely great!  Anyone I talked with agreed that the party was perfect. From our first contact with you the preparations went smoothly. The two managers on site were welcoming and helpful from the moment we arrived. The food was not just adequate, but delicious. The bartender was efficient and friendly. Nearly everyone came up to me at some point with the same type of comments, and to thank me for having found such a great place.  The room was just right for the number of people we were. Everybody had a fantastic time – due of course to what we were celebrating, but also to the ambience and service of our private party room.

I will certainly recommend you to anyone who is interested in a similar event, and if I ever wind up arranging another get-together, you will definitely hear from me.

Thank you.


Reunion in The Oak Cellar

January 21, 2010

Had a great time! The place was great and everything went as smooth as possible. Everyone at the bar could not have been more helpful. My guests were very impressed and they all had a great time.

I would definitely recommend you to my friends!

Reunion at The Balcony

December 11, 2009

Thank you so much, I sent out a private note to  Kate but thanks to the entire team for being so helpful with my last minute changes.

The reunion event was very successful. The staff at Off the Wagon was great, very helpful and accommodating.   The bartender was on his game and everything went very smoothly.  We had a great time, and even got a few games of beer pong in!   Thank you Eat, Drink & Be Merry for helping me get this set up in such short notice.  You are rockstars and  I will definitely keep you in mind for my next party!




We had a great time, and I think you all did a wonderful job.   Your staff was very responsive to our needs both before and during the party.  We will hopefully come back next year!




Reunion in The Speakeasy

December 11, 2008

I’m so sorry I haven’t written yet, work has been mayhem since the week
started.  I can not thank you, your staff (Christine initially) and the
bar staff enough for helping us with our reunion.  From the first phone
call through reconciling the bill at the bar, every single person was
ready, willing and able to help with anything and everything.

Karen and her staff the day and night of the party were so helpful that
Rachel and I barely felt like we were organizing a party, which gave us
all the time to enjoy the night.

Thank you all again for making this night so special for so many people!
