    Comments: 5 star-Gayle, Bob, Russ and the entire team at Gala Event was absolutely AMAZING to work with. Our son Max's Bar Mitzvah was a day we will never forget and we are all so TRULY GRATEFUL. Gayle and Russ are truly special. They were incredibility helpful, flexible and professional throughout the planning process and were available with any questions we needed answered big or small. They worked seamlessly with our D.J., entertainment, and decorations. On the day of the Bar Mitzvah their attentive and professional staff made everyone at the party especially our immediate family feel EXTRA special. The food and service was OUTSTANDING.... We are still getting feedback about the food being so incredibly delicious. All of our guests raved about the attentiveness of the serving staff. Most of all we will be FOREVER GRATEFUL for helping us create such beautiful memories with our family and friends. I would highly recommend Gala Event & Food Artistry to anyone. We could not have been happier with every aspect of our experience. We look forward to working with your team again...LOVE, The ROVNERS

    Comments: We wanted to say a special thank you to Gala Events for helping to make our daughter Mia’s Bat Mitzvah a memorable one. All of our guests commented on how delicious the food, how much food there was and also how innovative their presentation was. The cocktail hour is truly the best one I have even seen. The space is beautiful, warm and welcoming. The team is extremely professional and Gayle and Russ pay attention to every detail to help you coordinate your entire party. It was truly a pleasure!

    Comments: Gayle, Bob and Russ did everything to make our daughter's Bat Mitzvah the most memorable event. Our guests raved about the food, the service and the attention to detail. They made the planning process extremely easy and enjoyable. Gayle' s advice was invaluable and she was always happy to answer questions. The room presented even more beautifully than we could have imagined as no detail was left out. They were present the entire night, making sure that no only we, but all of our guests were happy. What makes them unique...combination of the quality of the food, the staff that is professional and friendly and the feeling that your party was created just for you.

    Comments: Thank you so much for making our son's bar mitzvah celebration a truly amazing event. Temple Beth Torah is gorgeous and was the perfect venue, especially the spacious cocktail room with the great stations, the huge white dance floor and the screens and lighting. The food – the quality, the quantity and the selections - was top notch, delicious and beautifully presented. The service was incredible. Your staff was so accommodating, sweet and solicitous. They made sure our guests were happy and made sure we got to taste everything. We were able to be guests at our own party, which says a lot. Again, thank you for everything. We are so happy we decided to have our event at Temple Beth Torah.

    Comments: The team at Gala FAR exceeded my every expectation for my son's Bar Mitzvah. Where do I start? The food was amazing! I'm in the travel industry and have attended functions at many 5-star hotels and resorts. My colleagues were raving about the cocktail hour, the entrees and the desserts. The food was fresh and inventive. Russ, Gayle and Bob were with us the entire night. They couldn't do enough. But more impressive was their staff. Each and every person seemed genuinely happy and wanted to make our event a success. My sisters and I wanted to take our personal attendant home. She made me feel like a queen. And there's the space. I love the cocktail room at Temple Beth Torah - Melville. It's like a private club - warm blues and very inviting. But what they've done with the ballroom is super impressive. My guests were impressed with both rooms and thought the ballroom was beautiful. Totally impressed and will do my next Bar Mitzvah with them as well.

    Comments: Recently had our second Bar Mitzvah with Gayle, Russ and the team from Gala Events at Temple Beth Torah in Melville. After our first Party with them, I was concerned that they set the bar too high and couldn’t duplicate the amazing party we had but THEY DID! From start to finish, they were fantastic to work with. Not a cookie-cutter factory, they are willing to customize a party to whatever worked for us, let me throw out different ideas and talked through them with patience. Creative and accommodating. Then there’s the food itself! Everyone at our party raved about the food. I was really concerned about it being as good as the first time and it was! New ideas, old favorites and twists in between. Every item was delicious. I also can’t say enough about their staff. Super professional and always with a smile. Yes, this a rave review and they deserve it! Cindy and Steve
