A professionally designed and executed event or party is a memorable and pleasant experience. As a host or organizer, your time can be spent on your guests and honorees, not on lists and schedules. Be a guest at your own event!

Assaggiare Mendocino brings over twenty years’ experience in planning and executing private and corporate events and parties. We can plan and execute anything, from a romantic dinner for two to a BBQ for over two hundred. Let us handle the details, from concept to clean-up and everything in between. Our flexibility and experience allows us to provide all or part of the process, based on your needs and your own expertise.

Assaggiare Mendocino believes that an event is only as good as the people managing the minute and numerous details. Our process leaves nothing to chance, and allows you, the host, to relax and trust that your event is in professional hands. A detailed quotation, based on actual costs, will be presented and reviewed with you prior to your event. An Event Agreement will also be reviewed and executed so that everything is spelled out in advance, leaving no surprises when you are billed. Our staff is trained and uniformed, and will provide exceptional customer service, before, during and after the event. Our rule is to leave the event site in better condition than we found it, relieving you, the customer of yet one more concern. Our customers’ recommendations and repeat business are our best endorsements, so your satisfaction is our primary concern.
