We booked Forage and their in-house catering (S+S Gastro Grub) for our wedding and everything turned out great. S+S provided excellent service throughout the planning process, including clear covid19 protocols/guidelines that helped us/our guests feel safe and comfortable.

We used this space for our wedding reception and I have to say it was a phenomenal experience. Iso and Matthew were very helpful with the space, helped us bring in vendors, and met with us several times so we could take looks at the space. The Kitchen was a fantastic place to serve food for our guests, and the lot was large enough for a big dance floor and plenty of room. Also, the lights and surroundings required no decoration on our part. I could definitely see doing another event here.

Iso was great and gracious! We loved the space. We used it for a mixer event for 100 teachers. Would use it again! Patio is great for the summer/fall.
