Hi Gesa, I hope you are well. I wanted to reach out and say thank you. The club did a fantastic job. Everything was perfect. I really loved every detail. The tables looked great! The food was great, cocktails were great. The club did an amazing job. Everyone loved it. I am so happy I chose to have my wedding at the Morristown Club. Thanks again for helping me plan out everything together.

Gesa, Thank you so much for hosting us last night. The event was wonderful, and everyone was really impressed with the Club. Most people were not aware of its existence, so it was nice educating them on the value of the Club.

Thank you, Gesa. The luncheon was wonderful. Everyone commented on how good the food was. I particularly enjoyed the shrimp, crab and avocado salad you added to the menu for us. The service was outstanding. I can’t think of anything you could have done better.

Gesa, I was so glad to meet you Friday July 16 at the bridal luncheon for Lauren – thank you for coming to introduce yourself! Everything was fabulous. Food was delicious and service was perfect and in such a lovely setting. We couldn’t have been more pleased and are so grateful for you and your staff making it such a perfect way to celebrate Lauren and kick off the festivities for the weekend!

Good Morning Gesa,

Have I told you recently you are the BEST!!!

I loved everything from the menu’s you designed, to the table arrangements to the food, even what Dave did with the bottles of wine and table assignment cards, the girls passing the hors d’oeuvres, even to where Dave placed the cake. OMG…OMG…what a fabulous party on Saturday. Dave and all the girls out did themselves. Everyone was and is talking about the party and the club even today!

Sooo please make sure they all know how much I appreciate Dave, the Chef and all the girls, all of them, and all their hard work to make my party a HUGE success. They all did an amazing job and I will never forget it…ever! Especially around Christmas…LOL..LOL I wish I could reward them sooner!

The Gagnon Cardiovascular Institute and the Foundation for Morristown Medical Center would like to extend their sincere appreciation to the staff of the Morristown Club for helping us host an exceptional donor appreciation evening. The food was superb, the service excellent. All of our guests made the same comments, and they also enjoyed the space and atmosphere very much. If you are considering hosting an event at the Morristown Club, don’t think about it, just do it! You won’t be disappointed.

My friend and I had such an enjoyable time last evening at the New Member Cocktail Party. The food, Board members and guests were delightful. I also loved the Book Club Wednesday afternoon. So far the Morristown Club is batting 1,000.

Wanted you to know how lovely lunch at the Morristown Club yesterday was in every respect. My guests enjoyed the setting remarking how gracious it was. The menu extensiveness was impressive. As was how perfectly prepared our selection was. Grilled salmon was absolutely delicious. Please compliment your chef. We all had a joyful time celebrating a return to dining out and catching up on fond Morristown history in which the Morristown Club shares a prominent part ! So thank you again and the staff for such a nice respite.

Success! Thank you Gesa! I feel as if we pulled off an amazing baby shower. I think every guest commented on the delicious food and the beautiful venue. All the servers were fabulous! They were very friendly and extremely attentive and professional. I think Marissa and Jimmy will remember that day for a long time. Thank you for everything you and the Morristown Club did to make the day special for all of us.

Dear Gesa, Dave, Tom, Penny and Doris
Thank you so much for making Easter so wonderful for Christian, our son Alexander and our daughter-in-law, Carly and our grandchildren Chloe and Dash. The food was delicious, and we do appreciate your accommodating our request to sit on the open back porch. As usual, the service was terrific.

Thank you again,

Congratulations on a successful Wine Tasting Evening. Beth and I enjoyed it immensely. The Fedway representatives, Gerry and Leo, were quite informative and interesting. Guests at the tables were having such a nice time Gary and Leo had an opportunity to individually visit each table and field questions that felt even more intimate and personalized. The Dining Room and tables were beautifully set. The food pairings had obviously been planned well and there were some surprises for wine selections, white vs. reds, which made the conversation even more interesting about what wines you should think about when preparing food courses. The food presentation was outstanding and the food itself was delicious. David Riley and the gracious ladies serving were once again outstanding making everyone feel very welcome.

My guests and I had a great time today at the club. Your suggestion to dine on the porch was great with the sun pouring in. The room was rearranged just for us with two highchairs. As soon as we sat down, the staff brought food for the little ones while the adults enjoyed a beverage…. very thoughtful!
The lunch was excellent and beautifully presented. Dave, Kim & Doris took such great care of us. My guests were very impressed. It was so enjoyable we stayed all afternoon.
There is really no place like The Morristown Club!

Dear Gesa,
I just wanted to thank everyone for the lovely New Year’s Day Brunch I shared with Epsey and Don Weatherbee. The Eggs Benedict with crab cakes was beautifully prepared and served; the dish was absolutely the best I have ever eaten. Doris and Dave made sure we had everything we needed. It was a first-class dining experience. As Epsey said to Dave, we feel we can now recommend the Club and to everyone. All of you, Kim, Doris, Penny and Dave, make us truly feel “at home.”

Beth and I wished to convey to you and your colleagues-Tom, David, Penny, Kim our thanks for making the Candlelight Dinner evening a first class in every respect:

  • The greetings- everyone is so welcoming- consistently
  • The atmosphere- simple yet elegant. The table settings were beautiful.
  • The food and the presentation- fantastic combination of foods with great presentation (although afterwards I had to go to the cath lab at Morristown Hospital for an angioplasty. Just kidding!!)
  • The departure – a fond farewell for a great holiday and so on.

The value of this cannot be overstated and it does not happen by accident. Keep up your great work and please convey our thoughts to all of your colleagues.

Dear Gesa and Dave,
Just wanted you to know that lunch at the club today with my friend, Nancy Dougherty was absolutely delicious (Lobster roll). It was a much-needed treat for both of us. Kim made us feel very much at home. Thank you so much for making it possible. Merry Christmas!

I thought it was a truly lovely event (Tea w/Santa) and was impressed all around! The staff did a truly excellent job. Please pass along my personal thanks and let them know that everyone I spoke with was raving about the event. What a special thing to be able to provide, even in the midst of this craziness! If that’s not proof that the Morristown Club is a special place, I don’t know what is!

Warm regards,

Thank you for our Thanksgiving Day dinner prepared by The Morristown Club! Ordinarily we are in Virginia with extended family for Thanksgiving, but not this year so the club really came through to make it a special day/meal for all five of us. Please thank Chef for me and tell him there were almost no leftovers!!

Dear Gesa, I want to thank you for a wonderful luncheon last Saturday. Mimi (Starrett) would have loved every second of her repast. The attention given to Mimi was appreciated by all who attended. The food was excellent, the service was wonderful and the tables adorned with lovely menus and photos were the perfect finishing touch. Please extend my heartfelt thanks to everyone for their contributions. Mimi loved the Club and each and everyone of you.

This past Thursday was my husband’s and my first dinner at the club since February. We were delighted to meet the new Dining Room manager, David Riley, who remembered us from the Bernard’s Inn. He is professional, friendly and a marvelous addition to the Club. And good food again!! Thank you for hiring Tom back as chef. He is so talented.

A lovely dinner again last night. Please tell Tom and Dave the food was delicious and the service wonderful. We adore Penny and Dave is a gem.

Thank you,

Steak Night was marvelous! Our guests loved it – ambience was terrific (and even the sound of the rain was delightful but not so great for the wait staff), food was delicious – only 2 people at our table had steak but all of the entrees, sides and desserts were delicious! The wait staff couldn’t have been more professional- superb service! So thanks again for a wonderful evening!

Good morning Gesa,

I would rate it a “5”. Everything was well prepared and packaged nicely.I might make a request in the future that the dressing be on the side for the salads.  The catfish was prepared well, but just a little too spicy for my taste, but good nonetheless. My son and daughter liked the Salmon and the Chicken Francaise very much.  I am looking forward to being able to dine outside, but hopefully we can move inside shortly.

We would rate last weekend’s dinner a solid 5 stars.  The short ribs nachos were a hit. We were delighted by clams casino made with whole clams. Our meals were delicious and well portioned.  All items were packaged well, and the no-contact pick up was seamless.  The wine list is impressive and convenient.  We are looking forward to supporting the Club with weekly meals for three, and we noticed there is an option to order larger portions for small gatherings – what a great idea. We are looking forward to dining at the Club in the near future.  

Thank you to you and the rest of the team for making all of this possible.  What you are doing to help us find a “new normal” is greatly appreciated.

I wanted to provide some quick feedback related to the takeout dinner we ordered this evening. We decided to try a few new menu items: fried brussel sprouts, braised short rib nachos, Asian sesame crusted salmon, Asiago chicken parm, and the apple strudel. The meal we had was absolutely incredible! Everything was perfectly done and still hot when we got home! Please give our compliments to the Chef and the team!!!

Richard and I ordered flank steak and scallops last night, take out from Chef Greg.  We were so impressed with the quality of the dishes!  The flank steak was tender, and the scallops were perfectly prepared.  And the portions were so large, that we will be enjoying those dishes again this evening!  Very happy with the Club’s selection of Chef Greg.

Wishing you all health and peace,

Hi Gesa:

This is to let you know what a wonderful job Patty and her staff did for us on February 8, the Mundy celebration. Patty stayed on top of the technical developments with the room audio system and was available with updates every time I called.

You can imagine how much we wanted the event to go well and you all really did exceed our expectations! Thanks so much for helping us create beautiful memories of what was surely a once-in-a-lifetime event!
