Reviews from our clients…

“Brooke, I want to thank you and the staff that worked the rehearsal dinner. The staff and bartender in our room did an exemplary job. The food was out of this world! It was a great time and everyone told me how beautiful it was. I would never hesitate to have another event there or recommend it to our family and friends.”

“I have to tell you what a wonderful time we had Friday! The food was excellent. The service was fantastic. The waiter, Michael, was one of the best servers – very attentive — very accommodating — very courteous — we loved him!!! And I own a salon & have planned many events so I’m talking from experience. The food was perfect–everyone was very satisfied & complimentary. We will pass this along to others. Thank you so much. Hope to do the same next year.”

“It’s hard to find a better place for a private event (bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, birthday, retirement party). They have a nice sized room in the year (could fit 30 at least) with its own bar and a private outdoor terrace. The room is also beautifully decorated that you do not have to worry about dealing with that. My bridal shower was held here and there was nothing but good things said by all of my friends and family about their experience here. The private events coordinator was also responsive and flexible in trying to make the event whatever the guests have envisioned.”

“I had my bridal shower at Eleven Forty Nine recently and it was absolutely perfect. The food was delicious and the service was phenomenal. The private room that they have for events was perfect for our 50 person event. The private bar and patio really makes it feel like you’re the only ones there. Brooke was so helpful the whole time, highly recommend her to coordinate your special event! Jim and Adam were working the day of my event, both were so attentive and pleasant to all our guests. This is the perfect place to host a private event! Not one complaint or issues! Will absolutely use them for future events!! Thank you guys for making my shower so special xoxo”

“We just had our daughter’s Bridal Shower here and we received many compliments! The decor was gorgeous, the food was outstanding and it ran as smooth as can be.The Brunch was delicious, everyone loved the omelette station, everything was well, perfect. I HIGHLY recommend booking any event at 1149 as I really don’t know how you would find anything better than this; I looked, I got very lucky to have found Brooke. Her personalized attention is what made me book the event, she really is amazing. All 44 guests were wow’d. Every single one said it was a beautiful shower. So YES book your next party/event here and remember ask for Brooke!One last thing, the location is perfect as we had many guests coming from PA, NJ, NY, MA, and the 1149 Restaurant is right off the highway. Very easy access. People liked that also.”

“I recently rented the Terrace Room for my husband’s 40th birthday. I can not express enough how happy I am to have had it at 1149. The experience of planning the event was easy and there were no last minute surprises. The food was delicious and the ambiance was beautiful! I would like to bring special attention to the sales and marketing manager, Brooke, who was such a pleasure to work with. She always responded promptly, always pleasant and just really made the entire experience of planning a surprise party so much easier. She went above and beyond. The entire staff was so attentive! I will highly recommend 1149 to anyone who is planning an event. I hope to have more parties to plan in the future there!”

“Everyone in our Rhode Island College Class of 1962 had a wonderful 50th reunion get-together at 1149. The brunch was terrific and plentiful, and the service was gracious and accommodating.
It was a beautiful room and the tables were set beautifully.
We felt that we received excellent value for the price.
Thank you again.

“The shower was great and all the servers that day were amazing. My sister cannot stop talking about how great 1149 was, especially the staff! I especially want to thank the events team. They had to work me throughout the whole process of planning for the shower. I think I must have sent them a million emails, but they always answered them right away and made everything PERFECT!

“Eleven Forty Nine Restaurant far exceeded all of my expectations and that I was truly delighted with the entire experience. The sales teams are real assets to your team. They made the planning experience easy and fun and offered many helpful ideas to improve the party. The night of the party, they made sure that everything went as planned and even made some last minute changes to the floor plan that helped to accent the birthday cake.

The wait staff and bartender’s were super friendly, helpful and efficient. Most of my 70 plus guests commented to me that the quality of the appetizers and buffet were outstanding and many commented that it was the best buffet style food that they had ever had. You can be confident that your staff is the best in the business and that you made many new patrons the night of my party.”

“I want to share my extremely positive experience with your team. From the first conversation to the several communications with your team, it was such a pleasure and ease to work with them, very much appreciated. The two servers were highly professional, respectful, and helpful, drinks were quick, etc. That helped make the night very enjoyable. We had senior management in from out of town, and there were no hiccups.”
– from Dennis P. who hosted a business dinner

“The events team and the staff who took care of us were wonderful. The food was delicious – my compliments to the chef – and the portions ample. A great time was had by all. I should also mention how impressed the president of our company was with the food value and superb quality we got for our money. We will be back!”

“We had a wonderful time my dad’s 80th birthday party at 1149 on Sunday evening! We did verbally express our appreciation to server, our friendly & able-bodied “host” for the night, but I’m happy to tell you in writing that we had very positive feedback from the party guests, most especially our Guest of Honor!
Here are the specifics:

The room was perfect – size, access, set-up.

People commented on the cheese & cracker station set-up at the built-in credenza which was a very convenient and nice display.

The food had a nice variety and it was deliciously prepared.

They were very generous portions, especially the pork tenderloin.

We loved the Cranberry Spinach Salad, nice twist on the more typical dried cranberries & greens salads served in many places.

The service was a real pleasure dealing with anyone we spoke to or met with at the restaurant, before and during the party.

The staff was personable, accommodating, and very professional.

They truly know the art of great service and his attention to detail was much-appreciated!!

Thank you all for helping to make Dad’s 80th a very happy occasion!”
