Hi Lindsey,

Thank you so much for everything. I am very happy my daughter’s party was awesome. She and all of our guests were impressed with the beautiful decorations and your services.

Please say thank you to Cathy for all of her tips and support. The Lombardo’s employees did an excellent job, the food was delicious and everything was under control.

Thank you again, It was a pleasure to have worked with you. I always felt that I was in good hands.



I can’t say ENOUGH about the experience I had with Lombardo’s. From the ease of planning with you and Carolyn to the event night, everything was excellent!

I was more than impressed by your venue. It’s updated design and modern elements were a perfect combination for my party theme / atmosphere!

The food was prepared JUST as I asked and the flavors exceeded my expectations. There were no complaints and ALL compliments to the chef and kitchen staff.

Please extend my heartfelt THANK YOU to Aveline and the other staff that served my function with her. Amazing and attentive!


Hi Joan,

Just a note to say thank you for the fabulous party on Saturday. I wanted to let you know what a great staff you have and how attentive they were. I received so many compliments on the meal and the hors d’oeuvres and the overall professional demeanor of the waitstaff and the bartenders, Emelita the DJ was outstanding, her music selections and her personality was a hit. She managed to get all of us oldies out on the floor. People made comments like “the best party ever” so I wanted to make sure I let you know how pleased I was with the outcome. I also can’t say enough about Caitlin who helped me through the planning stages all the way to the event with great suggestions and recommendations. I also will tell my friends if they want to have a perfect event they should consider Lombardo’s. Again my thanks to all that were involved, including the photographer who insured that all the pictures were taken of all of my guests with the proper background settings.


Hi Lindsey,

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your staff for making Aaliyah’s party so special. Everything was perfect and the food and service was amazing. We had the best time and did not want the night to end. I cannot thank you all enough.

With much gratitude,



We cannot thank you enough for everything you did for our prom. You were so patient and understanding with us through the planning process, answering every single crazy question and concern. The night was absolutely beautiful. Everything was professional and well-organized. Everyone was so kind and helpful toward our kids, especially with our special ed students. We had chaperones saying it was the best prom they had ever been to, and that was because of you and your team. It was a fantastic night, and I know that our school will definitely be back! Please let your team know how much we appreciate everything you guys did for us.


Hi Lindsey,

I would like to thank you for the service provided at Lombardo’s for my mother’s birthday on Sunday July 10th. Your staff was exceptional from the start to the end. Betty was above and beyond. The manager, also, was very helpful. And you Lindsey, without your help and creativity, this would not have been possible. You were exceptional. As much as possible I will recommend Lombardo’s without hesitation to my friends and family when needed. Thank you again!!


Hello Marc,

I want to thank you and the staff at Lombardo’s for making my mother’s celebration so wonderful.  It is a day that she will always remember. It was truly a pleasure for me, as well, finally meeting my “partner in crime”!    If I ever have plans or hear of someone up there planning to have a celebration, your name will be the one that I give them.


Dear Dave Lombardo,

I am sending you this email in regards to my event at your facility on Friday June 26. I just wanted to thank you and all of your staff for such a terrific event. My guests were so impressed with your staff. May I say, that none of this would have happened without the tremendous efforts of Catherine McNamara. Six mounts ago,  after calling around to other places, I called your facility, and at the other end of the phone was the very welcoming voice of Catherine McNamara. Cathy was so attentive and warm and understanding to my banquet, she told me she would get back to me, and before the end of the day she did, WOW! I was impressed.

You have some very impressive people representing your facility and you should be very proud. I have a friend that attended the event, she is getting married next year, and she is thinking of doing so at Lombardo’s.

Thanks to you and your staff for making my 25th Wedding anniversary a success.

Thanks Cathy, you rock!

Hi Carolyn,

I am still in awe of how amazing my senior prom was. I cannot begin to fathom how much work was put into it on your end, but just know how appreciative I am of it. It was so much better than our junior prom last year and it succeeded all of my expectations. Your step-by-step process and quick communication made my life so much easier and I was so stress free on Friday night so I was able to enjoy my prom.

The food was INCREDIBLE. The three stations is such an amazing idea and everyone loved it. All of the staff working the event (bartenders, food servers) were so friendly and helpful. When one classmate had a peanut allergy and another had a gluten allergy – which I did not know about before the prom – the staff was very accommodating to those two girls. It was so kind of Mr. Lombardo to introduce himself to me and stop by my table several times to make sure all was well.

I cannot say enough great things about Lombardo’s, about Mark, and especially about you, Carolyn. I expect Lombardo’s to see very many East Bridgewater weddings at Lombardo’s within the next ten to fifteen years because of your admirable work ethic.

It was a pleasure working with you, Carolyn. Thank you for everything,


Hi Lindsey,

Thank so much for your kind words. Yourself and Cathy were amazing to work with! Everything came out smoothly and in a timely manner. Alison and her group did an extraordinary job that night. They were all very helpful and sweet. It was a pleasure to work with each and every one of the staff there. I will definitely recommend Lombardo’s for any future events that come my way.

Again thank you for everything!


I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you for an outstanding prom for the Class of 2015 at Marshfield High School. Traciana and Cathy, I can not thank you guys enough for your hospitality throughout the planning process. You both were very accommodating and helpful which made the night an unforgettable one for all of the students that attended. I heard so many great things from students, especially when it came to the size of the dance floor and how nice the venue looked. My principal and the rest of the administration were extremely pleased which is always great to hear!! The waitstaff that night was also incredible and very helpful. Please let them know how happy Marshfield High was because of their efforts. I truly can’t thank you guys enough and I hope to work with you guys in the future. I want to make sure that everyone at Lombardo’s knows how happy we were with your business.



Hi Marc!

I just wanted to express my thanks for the great service that you and your staff gave me before and during the wedding shower.

The food was great. I had compliments from all of my friends and the strawberry layer cake was delicious. It was great working with you and Carolyn. I will recommend your great service to all of my friends.

As an event planner I know what to expect and you exceeded my expectations.Thank you so much for such great service and attention to details.



Hi Wendy

I hope all is well. We had a blast. Even the people from the other event came over and commented how well our program was going. We had an awesome time. Your staff is amazing from the intern Jeff to Sal. I did not meet John but I met the lead hostess. I wish I could remember her name because that girl was amazing. Anything and everything we needed that night was immediately taken care of by her. Every questions and request was just on point. From set up to service to clean up, just amazing. I am waiting for pictures so as soon as I have them you will as well.

Oh and please tell the chef that the food was heavenly. It is not usual for me to go to a catered even and want to marry the food. It was top notch and extremely yummy. I can’t stop singing the praises of your staff and establishment. Thank you so much for assisting me in making a Dream night for 14 wonderful and amazing kids.


Hi Cathy and Ameris,

Thank you both for your assistance with our event last night! Everything went off without a hitch, even with our fluctuating head count. I am so grateful to the flexibility of your staff who worked with me last night: John, who calmly handled my requests to add – and then subtract – more meals; the woman who said she was one of “the leads” on the set up crew who helped me figure out how many tables would work and did a great job directing the rest of the staff before and during dinner; the man who set up the extra tables I asked for and said he “wasn’t leaving until we had exactly what we needed”. And of course you both were so accommodating during the planning process and helped ensure that every detail was addressed!

The feedback I got regarding the food was very positive. I had the chicken which I enjoyed very much, and I heard from others who had the beef that it was quite good.

We know we’re in good hands when we have events at Lombardo’s – it’s such a comfort to work with professionals who care so much about their clients! Thank you very, very much!



Hey Cathy,

Thank you for all your hard work in putting this prom together. The students and staff had a great time and the food was great. I will stay in touch with you about next year’s prom.



Hi Cathy,

Yes, the event was wonderful. The room was beautiful with blue lighting. Everything was great.

Working with Tina was a delight. She is responsive and attentive which makes for a wonderful combination in a function facilitator.

I will be in touch about the date.

Thanks so much for coordinating everything. Lombardo’s is a great place!


Hi Cathy,

I thought the Awards Banquet went very well. The staff at Lombardo’s was helpful and professional as always. I look forward to doing more business with Lombardo’s and you in the future. I will forward your email to our President regarding reviewing paperwork for the upcoming school year.


Dear Cathy,

We just wanted to let you know how wonderful the Bridal Shower turned out. From the service, to the delicious food, to the ambiance of the Jessica Room and especially the staff assigned to the shower everything was just perfect. Everyone should be commended for their hospitality and their professionalism. People have been calling to say what a wonderful time they had and how delicious the food was. The affair was more than we could ever have expected. Lombardo’s is fortunate to have such wonderful and dedicated employees. Our sincere thanks to all. Lombardo’s and our good friend, Joanie made the Bridal Shower a huge success and a lasting memory.

Thank you and best regards,
Leona and Jim

Hello, Cathy….that was a wonderful celebration! My husband was really surprised. He couldn’t believe when he saw a lot of his friends and co-workers. Everything was perfect, the performances and the entertainment were excellent. They loved and enjoyed the food, the fish was so delicious….the desserts….everything. Your workers are excellent like John Lee, Very, Juan and the rest, they are so accommodating. I think they also enjoyed the party and my kids’ speeches.

Thank you so much, Cathy for making this party a memorable one to our family. Your help and patience are very much appreciated. I will see you again next time. Have a pleasant evening.


Dear Cathy,

Sincere thanks to you and your crew for a job well done. We were very pleased with the service and the accommodations. Please convey the same to all those who were involved. Thanks a million. We will certainly return to you, when we will again need your service.


Hi Cathy,

I just wanted to take a little time to truly thank you for everything. This whole process of planning and executing my engagement party was extremely hectic and as you know, there were MANY unplanned bumps along the way, and despite them, you were more than understanding and patient with us, and that’s something I really can’t thank you enough for. I know if it were anyone else, they wouldn’t have been so kind and helpful. You really did focus on making us happy and followed through with all our wishes and requests. In the end, the party was amazing, and I couldn’t have asked for anything better. I received so many compliments about the party, the venue and food. All I can say is THANK YOU so much, I appreciate it so much! I know where we will be going for our wedding.

PS. Please thank the staff that helped us that night for me, and the managers that were so kind and helpful despite my “bridezilla” moments.


Massih Family thanks Lombardo’s for a best stress free sweet 16 birthday party.

Marlene & Carol thank Lombardo’s for a perfectly planned Anniversary party.
