We used them for a company party, not a wedding. However,our bartender was great! she was very helpful and eager to work! my only negative comment was that she pre-opened too many wine bottles in preparation for the rush and unfortunately they were not consumed, so we had to toss a lot of wine :(

We had two bartenders man the bar for our wedding. As far as I know, they did a great job of keeping the drinks coming during the cocktail hour and did a great job of keeping the bar area nice and clean.

There were a few miss-communications... about 3 weeks before my wedding, I had contacted them to add on an extra bartender. I left two to three voice mail messages with them and never received a word back. Finally, my event planner was able to contact the owner who was apparently out of the country. I didn't receive any word from the bartender who would be tending our event until the night before in the middle of my rehearsal.

Additionally, I had confirmed in the paperwork they could set out a tip jar. They were never informed and didn't set out the tip jar until the later part of the cocktail hour. I was disappointed that they were not informed from their boss to do this.

The girls did great though. I made sure to tip them along with the tips they got from our guests and also gave them a case of beer each - we had a lot of beer left over. They never once complained about the cold.

I hired KBS for my August 10th wedding at the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club. Kevin, the CEO, and 2 other bartenders worked my event. I am happy with the 2 other bartenders Kevin brought to work my wedding, but I'm not happy with Kevin due to his lack of professionalism.

All communications and interactions with Kevin were good leading up to my wedding. However, the day of my wedding my husband and I feel we were promised a service we did not receive. We believe Kevin lied to us about his credentials.

The worst part of dealing with Kevin the day of my wedding was when I went to address an issue with him at the start of dinner service. I went to find out why he or his bartenders were not serving wine and he tried to brush me off by saying he was going on break - WORST TIME TO TELL A BRIDE YOU ARE GOING ON BREAK. I told him I would like 2 bartenders to go serve wine and one bartender to keep the bar open because dinner service was running so slowly. He seemed to ignore my request and gave other instructions to his bartenders as I walked away.

I did not like what I heard at the end of my wedding and the next day. According to several guests, Kevin was strolling around the venue when he should have been working. My sister (maid of honor) caught him taking video of my guests dancing on the dance floor, and several guests told me they saw him lingering and hitting on female guests. I was disgusted by the stories I heard the next day. I also heard Kevin was rude to some female guests. Kevin also made some of my male guests feel uncomfortable because he was overly flirtatious with their dates.

What a great company! We were so fortunate that our wedding planners (Beau & Arrow) introduced us to Kevin's Bartending. My husband and I got married on 6/1 and held our reception at the Luce Loft in the East Village district of downtown San Diego. Our friends and families know how to drink and know how to party and Kevin's Bartending kept up and even found time to get on the dance floor with us! From start to finish, Kevin's bartending was focused, professional, and super fun! Kevin always made sure my champagne glass was full and respected our "no shots" rule - our guests could get out of hand reeeeaaalll quick :)

We couldn't recommend Kevin's Bartending services more. We will definitely be using them for future events.

Kevin's Bartending Service was one of best decisions I made in hiring vendors for my son's wedding. His services took the worry out of ensuring my guests were well attended to and completely satisfied. The guests all raved at how special Kevin himself make them feel and when someone my husband hired did not show up to help clean up and breakdown for the party rental to pick up dinnerware and such, Kevin pitched in (without even a second thought) and helped to stage and breakdown all the glass and dinnerware. Without Kevin and his wonderful staff, I never would have made the clean up deadline and would have lost my deposit. Kevin and his business were essential to the success of my son's wedding! A big "Thank You" to Kevin and his staff and I know he gain additional business from the invited guests as they all thought he was the greatest! Thanks again Kevin, you are the best!

We hired Kevin's for our daughter's wedding. From the first phone call it was a breeze. Allen was our bartender and he was great! Everyone said that the bar was perfect and it was one of the few things I didn't have to worry about. We would definitely hire them again and it was a steal for the money paid.

I hosted a 50th Wedding Anniversary Party for my parents in their home. We had about 80 people and Kevin's Bartending contributed greatly to making the party a huge success. With Shelly and Ryan behind the bar I didn't have to even think about the bar, they took care of absolutely everything. There service was amazing going above and beyond at every step. I truly could not have asked for more.

I highly recommend Kevn's Bartending and will use them again and again. It was a pleasure working with Kevin and his entire team!

The night was a blast but there were a couple of things that bothered me. At the end of the night our bartender told me double the amount that was actually due, I corrected that after I did my calculations and to me that was dishonest. Also I sent my bartender an e-mail asking if wer could use the service for 3 hours verses 4 but there was no response.Also they bright another bartender along although we discussed a second one our discussions after that were that we would only need one and when I came to the surprise party I did not realize that, the young lady with him was a bartender I thought she was assisting. My point, is I felt tricked just a little and would have appreciated a question like "would you still like another bartender because heres so and so." Something thats all I'm saying.
