I wanted to take a moment to thank you and your team for another great event at the Bali Hai. Your staff was exceptional- they were helpful and tentative throughout the evening. All the little details such as (pre-bussing, tray passing and linen collecting) were not even a worry while running the event. We love having our Annual Dinner at Bali Hai and I want to thank you again, for all of your help this year.

We received many compliments on the food, as well as on the venue itself. As the event planner for our nonprofit, I am personally grateful for your professionalism and attention to detail in the planning and execution of our awards reception. Thank you for helping to make my job easier.

Thank you for an absolutely wonderful evening at the Bali Hai. Our Holiday party was a huge success. Many of our employees told me that this was the best Employee Holiday party they have ever attended. The venue was spectacular, the food was fabulous and the service was perfect. Everyone here at San Diego Yacht Club wants to thank you and your staff for making it one of our most memorable events. We want to personally thank all of the people who were involved in putting together the event. Working in the hospitality industry, we know what a huge effort it takes to coordinate events for large parties. Your team was/is absolutely top notch and professional. Nothing was overlooked and every detail was addressed in advance and planned for. It was a pleasure working with you and your team, and I hope we can do it again in the future. We had so much fun from the beginning till the end. What a wonderful experience!

I wanted to pass along my thanks to the team for a great event last night. I received several compliments on the venue as well as the quality and selection of food/drink made available to our guests. The team was ready for our guests promptly at 7 and provided excellent service. Compliments were made to pass along to the culinary team on the food. The portions on the stationary appetizers did indeed serve the 100 initial guests and I am appreciative to the kitchen for accommodating my evening request to tray up the sliders, as it helped ensure more guests were able to enjoy the food. The event captain was very easy to communicate with throughout the event and incredibly accommodating to any requests we had. She was a true delight to work with and had me feeling comfortable and at ease that the evening would run as well as it did. The bar provided an extensive selection of drinks (beer, wine and cocktails) which I know our guests appreciated; and, helped us manage the bar tab budget well, providing us regular updates on subtotal, so we were able to host a wonderful evening for our out of town guests without exceeding the budgeted amount. And thank you for the wonderful weather that was ordered too! It was nice that so many were able to enjoy the outdoor view.. Your sales team did a nice job with clear communication with me throughout the planning phase as well as passing the baton on all event details to the staff. Thank you again for all your efforts to provide a memorable event for our conference.
