Naturally the compliments rolled in by phone, text, email and in person. People loved the Boathouse location and our decision and joint efforts down by the riverside was a winner. We were pleased that quite a few guests particularly highlighted the food; quality and continuity, and mentioned the excellent staff, not only for good service but for friendliness and thoughtfulness. Good communication. - Murray C, December 2018
Thank you and your team for the wonderful event we held back in early December! A very successful evening that was enjoyed by all.' - Sharon D, January 2019
Thank you for the excellent service you and your team provided last weekend for our boy’s first bday. Everyone commented how delicious the food was and what a stunning venue it was. - Marianne M, November 2018
I just wanted to quickly thank you guys for an amazing event. We got nothing but compliments from everyone about how amazing everything was and how much fun they had. Thank you both for taking us in and allowing us to have the event in your venue, I really couldn’t have asked for something better. I’ll probably see you guys around soon! Thanks on behalf of all of the Yarra Riverkeepers and from me. You guys are the best. - Anton T, October 2018
On behalf of my family, I would just like to thank you for all the help you have given us over the last week in organising Rosemary's wake. Your communication with us was excellent and you always assured us everything was under control and that we could relax, which was very comforting. On the day, everything was perfect and your staff were fantastic. - Benjamin W, August 2018
I would like to pass on my sincere thanks to James, Jess and the team who provided the most wonderful service and care today as we celebrated my Mum’s birthday. We frequent restaurants throughout Melbourne, Australia and Europe and the service at your cafe was the best we have had. Almost every guest made comment on the exceptional organisation and professionalism demonstrated by the team. After a considerable search for a suitable venue for our function, we are absolutely thrilled to have made the Studley Park Boathouse Cafe our selection. The passion and enthusiasm demonstrated by James was of superior quality and we are beyond thankful. Given the massive constraints he had to endure serving our function and the guests outside, he remained calm, focussed and joyful throughout the whole day. I would highly recommend James and his team for any high calibre function where the guests want to leave feeling abundantly pleased with their choice! Best wishes and well done!! - Melissa A, June 2018
I just wanted to say thank you again for everything you have done for us in preparing for our day and making sure it was beautiful. Nothing was too much trouble for you and your staff. Yourself, Jenny and the girls today were an absolute pleasure to deal with. We sincerely say thank you for playing a huge role in such a special day for our family. - Danielle S, April 2018
