Just wanted to say a big thank you to all of the wonderful staff at Eve's, especially Michael and Larry, for their outstanding service at our wedding on Sunday.

Hi to Trudi and all the staff at Eve's on the River,
Greg and I had a fabulous time on New Year's Eve and we wanted to say thank you very much for the fantastic service you and the team provided both in the lead up to the reception and on the night itself. Michael was wonderful and he ensured that everything ran so very smoothly - it felt like nothing was too much trouble and it meant that Greg and I could just relax and enjoy the night!!! I really appreciated the special care your staff took of Greg and I as well, while we were so busy socialising your team made sure we always had a drink and some food available. The food was SPECTACULAR and I know everyone had way too much to eat and loved every bite. When we were organising the wedding, it was really important to us that there would be enough food and that the food would be amazing- your guarantee was great in taking care of these concerns and you definitely more than delivered on it!! I also really appreciated the desserts that you organised in addition to the package for us and the caramel tarts and sticky date pudding were both sooooo good, I'm still dreaming about them!
I'll be recommending you to everyone I know - that was how all wedding receptions should be!!

Eves on the River was the perfect choice for our staff Christmas party!
We hired out the entire restaurant and nothing was too much trouble with the preparations. Our Event Manager Trudi was there every step of the way to make sure that every detail was exactly as we wanted.
The venue has beautiful views and our tables were tastefully decorated. All our guests agreed that the food was absolutely superb, and the quantities were just right.
The waiters and bar staff on the night were also exceptional – very friendly and helpful.
I have no hesitation in recommending Eves as the ideal place to host a function. In fact, we enjoyed it so much that I have just made another booking there for my mum’s 60th birthday!

Terry and I would just like to say a huge thank you to you and all the staff for making it a great day for us yesterday. All of our guests commented on how fantastic the food was and how great the staff were. It was wonderful to hear them all speak so highly of the event because it is always a concern how things will turn out. We popped in for breakfast this morning and Michael was so lovely. You were great to deal with Trudi and it was lovely to meet and work with you. Please pass on our thanks to everyone and tell the chef he did a fantastic job. We will be back!

The food was beautiful and our guests spoke very highly of their meals. Thank you to you also Trudi for making the time leading up to the wedding so easy.

We just wanted to thank you for all the follow up and preparations regarding our big day. You as Events Manager certainly helped make the day run smoothly.
The team that was working on the day was a awesome team, Michael & Amy brilliant job. The team made sure that everyone was catered for on the day.
With the guests who attended, we can honestly say that we had 100% who thoroughly enjoyed the experience at Eves and the most important thing is the food and service that was provided by the staff from Eves. We’re sure that trying to bring things together can have it's times, but on the day things did run smoothly even given the fact of a little rain, but with the backup of the London Club we still remained relaxed. Thank you again Trudi for organising the London Club for us.
We both really enjoyed the whole experience that was provided to us by your team. We would happily recommend Eves to anyone who is wishing to find a venue to get married or any celebrations at all. The little touches that we had on the day, like being advised who was looking after us and to the point that Amy knew that Kerry had requested the moscato wine without asking for it. Sometimes the little touches goes a long way for a bride/groom on the day.
Thank you for a wonderful day, brilliant food and service.
Stephen & Kerry :: 20.7.13
Just a short note as we'd like to thank you again for all of your great service and support for the lead up to, and of course on the day of our wedding last Saturday. It means so much to us to have been able to entrust you and the team at Eves right from day one of planning, and know that everything would be delivered so perfectly as it was. There is not a single thing that we'd change about our ceremony or reception. We are still getting 'rave reviews' from our family and friends about the great food and fantastic service from all of the staff who worked on the night. Can you please pass on our personal thanks as it's greatly appreciated.
Particular thanks to you Trudi for keeping everything so straight forward, simple and professional. These were things which were definitely important to us when we first looked for a venue to hold our wedding. We're so pleased to have found Eves and yourself, as you are clearly great at what you do. Also special thanks to Michael, who on the night was nothing short of fantastic in over-seeing everything went smoothly, and to us personally he constantly made sure we had everything we needed. Michael's service definitely exceeded our expectations and also showed again how professional you all are.
We can honestly say that we will look back on the celebration we had with our family and friends so fondly, and remember that you and the rest of the Eves staff played such a big part in making it as great as it was.
Jane & Paul :: 25.5.13
We would again like to thank you all for the amazing service and attention to detail you provided for our wedding. The night was first class and everything went to plan. You and all the staff looked after all our guests and everyone was impressed by the quality of food and service the team provided.
We will definitely be recommending you to others and we will be back soon to enjoy another meal at Eve's.
Matt & Joanna :: 15.6.13
I wanted to write to you straight away and tell you how happy we were with everything for the wedding and how grateful we are to you and all the staff there. Everything was just beautiful and all our guests commented on how fantastic the food and service was. We all had so much fun – it was an absolute ball and we couldn’t have done it without you and all the staff there on the night. Thankyou SO much! It was exactly the type of wedding we had hoped for and we have had so many compliments – I would not hesitate to recommend you guys to anyone.
Anna & Ari :: 31.3.13
Brett and I just wanted to take the time to thank each of you for your excellent organisation of our wedding on the 27th of September, 2013. We had a wonderful time thanks to you and your venue staff. The ceremony was lovely and all our guests had an absolute ball at the reception. It was indeed a memorable event which we will treasure forever. Thanks so much for making our big day so special. We really appreciate it!
We’ll see you next time we’re in for dinner!
Bernadette and Brett:: 27.9.13
Daniel and I would like to thank you and your wonderful staff on our big
day. Especially Michael who had been so helpful and supportive to me
and my MCs on the day, as we were all too nervous to think straight. All
of our guests kept telling me how wonderful the food, and the staff are
all very professional and attentive. The decoration was arranged
exactly how we wanted , so we did not need to worry anything about it.
We all enjoy the day so much, and we will definitely recommend anyone to
have a wedding in Eves!
Connie & Daniel :: 28.7.13
We just want to say thank you very much for the wonderful service by you and your professional team on our wedding day. We received a lot of complements from our guests for the beautiful venue, wonderful service and excellent food. Some guests said it's the most lovely wedding they had attend. A couple of my girl friends were considering to persuade their hubbies renew their vows on the same spot.
Please pass our BIG THANK YOU to everyone for their hospitality.
Lin and Ashley :: 18.4.13
I just wanted to write you a massive thank you for everything you did to coordinate our wedding so perfectly. Everything I had pictured in my head in the 6 month lead up to the day was exactly how it looked at the reception and it just absolutely made our wedding day. Everybody just kept commenting on how fantastic it looked!
I left the decorations and props for you the day before with some brief instructions, I was hoping I hadn’t been too vague, and when we walked in after our ceremony I was completely blown away with how spectacular it looked. You were very understanding in what we were after, and made it all look so easy, it was exactly what we had hoped for. Thank you for keeping in regular contact with us throughout the planning stages and although I had a million things running through my head you were so patient and pleasant to deal with.
Also, throughout the night so many people came up to us and told us how fantastic the food was, and everybody loved the fact that we had an actual menu with 3 options for entrees and mains that guests were able to chose from as opposed to the alternate drop option. All of the canapés were also a huge hit so THANK YOU to the chefs!
Also A HUGE thank you to Elise for looking after us throughout the night. Even though we didn’t have any sort of planned itinerary, everything just fell into place and went really smoothly. Food was perfectly timed, and the serving of the wedding cake was fantastic. Elise was just so patient and professional, she didn’t try to hurry anyone and I really appreciate her flexibility and the fact that she just kept on smiling no matter what. And always checking up on me to make sure I was happy with everything. She has such a pleasant nature!
And also a big thank you to the wait staff on the night, the two young gentlemen were absolutely fabulous. Not once did my glass of water or champagne reach the halfway mark as a waiter would instantly be by my side, topping up, asking if everything was up to standard. A lot of the guests commented on this high level service and I loved it! It made everyone feel very good! Also, the alternating of seating on each table for Daniel and myself went so smoothly, we would simply sit down wherever we wanted and our drinks would just appear in front of us, it was so relaxing.
So overall a big thank you to everyone who contributed to our day, we felt so stress free and relaxed, everything was left in such capable hands and we were very impressed with the level of service we experienced. We won’t ever forget our wedding day and the whole team at Eve’s has made it that much more memorable.
We will definitely be recommending Eves’s on the River to everyone we know!
Anastasia and Daniel Bedogni :: 17.2.13
We had dinner at Eves on the River on the night of our engagement and the staff congratulated us with complimentary glasses of wine! We then celebrated our ceremony and reception at Eves in January 2012. The experience of the staff made the process of planning pleasant and stress-free. Each planning visit we received complimentary coffee or wine and our parents also enjoyed a complimentary dinner as part of our wedding package. The wedding day ran smoothly and the setting by the river was beautiful. We had approximately 160 guests at the ceremony and 95 at our reception. The food was one of the highlights with a number of comments from our guests. We really liked the option of an alternative drop of three meals rather than the usual two meals. The staff were flexible and helpful with structuring the food and beverage packages to our desires. Overall we loved celebrating our wedding at Eves on the River and would recommend it to anyone. Thank you again for helping to make our wedding day so special and easy. We loved it.
Kisane and Matt Bird :: 21.1.12
All of the guests raved about the delicious food, fantastic service and beautiful setting. The night flowed without a hitch, your organizational skills are second to none, from the very start I knew you had everything well in order and I could relax and enjoy the night. Words cannot express how thankful we are to you, and to your staff. Our wedding was everything I'd hoped for and then some.
Jacqueline and Anthony :: 5.4.12
Stephan and I were married at Eves on the River in April 2012. We could not have been happier with everything they did in the lead up to the wedding and on the day.
Unfortunately we had very heavy rain during our ceremony, but the venue was perfect for an indoor wedding as you still get a nice outlook to the river - it really didn't matter.
The food and wine was amazing and we had lots of comments from our guests regarding the quality. We highly recommend Eves to anyone, for any type of function
Katie and Stephan Van de Walt :: 28.4.12
Our wedding reception at Eve's was absolutely wonderful. The service, the food and the hospitality of the staff at Eve's was impeccable. We had many great comments from our guests who all said how much they enjoyed the night, the great food and wine. For us however, the best thing was the warmth of the venue and the intimacy that it brought. As a couple who do not usually enjoy the spotlight, we felt so relaxed and were able to enjoy the celebration of our marriage with all our friends and family. A wonderful evening that we will cherish always.
Kristen and Mark :: 24.3.12
Just wanted to to say a 'BIG THANK YOU' to you and Amy and all the staff at Eve's who helped make our wedding reception so awesome! Everything ran so smoothly which allowed Kieran and I to really just focus on having fun which is exactly what we wanted for our reception.
All of our guests have commented on the high quality delicious meals and the high standard of service from the wait staff. We've heard lots of my drink never got empty!!
Please give a special thank you to Amy I know that she had to hang aroung until everyone left and then work the breakfast shift the next morning and thank you for everything you did to help us get organised it was a big help. Overall, we're so happy that we chose Eve's on the River for our wedding reception.
Amy & Kieran :: 31.12.11
Shelley and I would like to thank you for all of your help in making our wedding day such a magical experience. Thank you for your referrals to Robyn Nicolle the celebrant and Phil Jackson the photographer – we could not have hoped for better! Especially, thank you to you Trudi for the organisation leading up to and on the day and to the fabulously talented Amy and her service team who attended to our every need on the night – you really made us feel special and important on our day. Finally a big thank you to the chef and his team – we received so many positive comments from our friends and family on the quality and deliciousness of the dishes.
Michael and Shelley Mc Mahon :: 10.12.11
Eddy and I just wanted to thank you and all the staff at Eves for making our wedding on the 2 December very special. The food was delicious, the service excellent and the setting beautiful.
Our guests have been singing the praises of Eves ever since. I think it is one of the first weddings I know if where the guests actually thanked the bridal couple because they enjoyed the wedding so much.
Anne Andersen and Eddie :: 2.12.11
Initially we had felt it was beyond our budget but the more we investigated other venues, the more we realised the value at Eves... Everything was included and arranged by the restaurant and staff. Finally because of the location, the quality, and MOSTLY the staff the decision was made. Eves on the River it was going to be.
Trudi is a consummate professional. She is totally on the ball, all the time. Despite being busy she always MAKES time – she is one of those special people that is able to make you feel like you are the most important person. I really cannot praise her highly enough. Additionally, I would like to mention Amy and the other staff who worked on the night of our wedding. All the staff handled themselves and our wedding in a superb manner. They worked so very very hard and must be complimented. I could go and on, but really I just want to say how happy I am. The venue, the location, the food, the wine and most importantly Trudi, Amy and the other staff were 100% amazing. I will continue to recommend Eves on the River to everyone I know looking for somewhere to hold an event, or just somewhere to go for a great meal.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you so very much for making our wedding perfect for us!
Sali Bonnell and Matt :: 26.11.11

Claire & Andrew Gilmour :: 28.8.11
I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you and your staff for making our dinner such a success. The food was fantastic, the service great and atmosphere – fun. The absolute highlight for me (as an organiser) was the way the staff handled the special dietary requirements. I have never ever seen such attention to detail. The personal touch of speaking to the special diet people individually and with understanding was a joy to watch. Well done to everyone!

We have had fantastic feedback from our guests! Absolutely loved all the food, and everything was perfectly cooked for everyone! And the wine was tops.
