Hi Jenna!

Our Christmas Party at Miro was absolutely perfect! Everything was amazing, the violinist was a huge hit, the food was amazing, the personalised menus on the tables were lovely, the guys singing were incredible and the staff were superb! It was all so great, it was the best Christmas party we have ever had.

A huge thank you to Jenna and the team at Miro for making this a night to remember. We will be back!

Hi Jenna,

Just wanting to put some feedback down in writing for you and your team,

Firstly, our entire team had a wonderful night! Everyone I talk to says it was fantastic, your team delivered great service and were very friendly and helpful. Emily and Fran where both amazing on the night and nothing was a problem. Thank you for organising the surprise happy birthday celebration for 2 of our team members. They loved the surprise, and it was nice to acknowledge it for them.
The meals where delicious, fresh and flavoursome but I know Miro so well and again this is your high standard of food on a large scale! Compliments to your chef and kitchen team. Please also thank them for being very flexible on the night again nothing was a problem even when we delayed the mains slightly due to the awards running over. It all just flowed, and our team wouldn’t have known we where behind

Just one point I would make was some of the staff didn’t know the menu items when they delivered them to the table. I know its hard with Casuals but thought I’ll let you know.
Lastly thank you for helping us organise such great event in a beautiful location! The whole process from enquiry to event end was seamless and easy

Maree and I was now planning to take our partners out for Brunch on Sunday 19th December @ 11am for our pre-Christmas catch up and I was wondering if you could make us a booking @ Miro?

Thanks!

Hey Jenna

The private dinner we held at Miro was fantastic. Very well received by our guests. Well done to the team for managing two events from the kitchen. Our guests got a giggle out of the champagne lady even though it wasn’t for us!

Thank you so so much from the both of us for making our whole experience so stress free. Miro was the perfect venue for us and it will always be a special place for us now.

Our guests only have positive things to say to a brilliant night, amazing food and drinks!! I just want to replay the night all over again.
Thank you too for the high tea gift voucher, Harry and I look forward to using that. Very kind.

Thanks again for all your work and effort, it surpassed all our expectations.

Wedding | 29th October 2021
Honestly we cannot describe how amazing our night was! Thank you so much for bringing our vision to life, you all made the process such a delight. Miro is a really special place and we have been constantly recommending it to everyone. The team is absolutely amazing, the food was exceptional, the drinks were delicious and the atmosphere was fabulous. 10/10 well done! chefs kiss
I wont have time until Jan 2022 now but from what I remember:

• The staff were incredible – we had comments afterward about how kind and fun they all were. Especially the bar staff – apparently they kept vibe very fun.
• The set up was perfect for the amount of people
• The more introverted people really enjoyed the tea and cakes room – helped with the flow & those wanting a quieter chat.
• So many compliments about the food on the night and afterwards! The vegan crowd were particularly impressed. The salt and vinegar potatoes are still talked about.
• Kyle the MC said it was really easy to work with the Miro staff 10/10
• I was also pleasantly surprised to be handed food by the Miro team every so often haha which was great because it is very hard to eat when its your wedding. If that was planned then well done !it was much appreciated.
• Thank god for that heritage lift !made getting those heavy flowers out the next day easy.

Kindest,
Sofia

Hi Jenna,

What a wonderful afternoon we had on Saturday.

Thank you and the staff on Saturday for a fantastic customer experience.

The food was AMAZING.

The drinks were LOVELY.

The venue was FANTASTIC.

It was a great occasion and our family and our guests really enjoyed everything about it.

Thank you very very much for making this such a marvellous experience for us and Dad for his 80th.

Event | 26th September 2021
Photos are fab thanks so much !

Today Khalid an orthopedic surgeon that said the main funny speech who has travelled to conferences all over the world said that our party was the best and the best organized function he has ever been to!

I got soo many texts all raving about the venue food and music!

It had a lovely pace to it changing with the 3 dimensions from cafe to the dinner then another space for desert kept it interesting so you don’t get that function fatigue thing!

Now for further feedback!

I would firstly like to thank you for being so awesome to work with in the organising of our event. It was the first one of these team events I have done that I have gone into so relaxed and confident of a hugely successful night

Secondly, please pass on my thanks to Fran, Emily and the full team who were working on Friday night – their flexibility when my directors chose to ‘mix things up’ on the night was so much appreciated – total professionals who went with the flow, always smiling.

Thirdly, Nick Lee and his band mate – awesome! First event we’ve had when everyone was up and dancing from the very beginning.

And last, but definitely not least – to Chef and his team – beautiful food! Everyone has been nothing but complimentary on the meal and how delicious it was … those that missed out on the dessert (due to dancing!) ..are regretting it big time! Everything was delicious.

In a nutshell – you and the full team at Miro kicked it out of the ballpark, and I cannot thank you enough for giving our team such a fun night.

I look forward to working with you again sometime Jenna

Warm regards

Dear Jenna, Francesca and Ana-Maria,

We just wanted to email you and tell you that we had an amazing evening on Thursday.

Thank you SO MUCH to all your staff for working with Sophie to make it such a memorable occasion.

Compliments to the kitchen team, as the food was exquisite. Everyone in our party was very complimentary of all dishes.

The service team were brilliant. They were very attentive, making sure glasses were kept full throughout the evening. A special thank you to Ana-Maria for her co-ordination all night.

Please pass on our thanks to the team for a job well done. We will certainly keep Miro in mind next time we are looking for a venue – and maybe we’ll have the opportunity to use your top floor space one day!

Best Regards,
Palle & Rachel Petersen
