Testimonials

Brides love us on WeddingWire and The Knot.

We absolutely LOVE working with Please B Seated! They are extremely reliable and have the most amazing selection of products.

-Seri Kertzner, aka Little Miss Party Planner

One of the best rental companies in NYC. Quick & Reliable. Nora is one of sweetest representatives I have encountered! Highly Recommend them!

–Stephanie De Abreu, Coordinator, NYC Catering Company

YES, PBS has great equipment and inventory. YES, they have all the standard equipment one could need for any event but what sets them apart? The customer service and attention to detail! A group of service professionals over the phone and at every delivery is what you can expect. In a service based industry of special events they provide the warmest of partnerships to me and my clients. Thank you PBS for all your support! Oh yeah, ask for Nora! That’s our go to gal! = )

– Mario Rivera, MR Hospitality

It is such a pleasure working with Diane at Please B Seated! She truly makes me look good! Just last week, a client of mine decided that she wanted ceramic plates, etc. instead of the disposables that she had been planning on using. Diane was able to take the order and have it delivered within 16 hours! The event was a success!
-Leah Neumann, Delivery & Catering Manager, Fig & Olive

OK Chaps – I am officially in love with you! Get used to it! What do you expect when you hang & wrap all the linens in a hanging box – even the work cloths; you wrap all the china goods in double thick foam padding; you seal the glass crates in sturdy plastic & the coup de grace was the Cadco oven, beautifully new/clean, sitting on its very own rolling rack with sheet trays beneath for use as easy storage during service & the cherry on top – that your delivery guy TESTED the oven to make sure that the circuit could handle the power & that it was in good working order!
-Ro Howe, Chef/Owner, Barraud Caterers Limited
