Kanopi Testimonials

Kanopi on Restaurant Hunter with Rob Petrone


Colin and Anthony - Thank you for a wonderful evening. Our guests were blown away by the view, the great food, and the elegance of the space. You both are extraordinary hosts and your generosity is unparalleled. Thank you for being so generous. We all looked good last night! - Rose, June 6th 2018 


Dear Anthony and Colin - I can't find words to express my gratitude for all that you have done for our school. The honorees were blown away with the space, the food, and the hospitality. I have received so many emails telling me how great the event was. - Sobeida, June 7th 2018 


Dear Mr. Mead - My wife, along with our daughter and son-in-law, join me in extending a sincere “thanks” for helping us host a wonderful dinner party in under six weeks in honor of Debbie and Farmun’s wedding.

Chef Anthony’s kitchen provided customized dishes that were not only delicious and visually appealing, but well thought out and memorable as well. This held true from the cocktail hour and seated dinner through dessert. The bar service, and the selection of beverages, matched the sophistication and appearance of the food. The specialty cocktail was refreshing and unique.

Most would agree that it is not the food, drink and venue that make an event, but the service. The service that was delivered to our guests was top notch, five star, second to none. Your team was impeccable and extremely attentive and accommodating while simultaneously being unobtrusive. Each and every request was granted, and every detail carefully planned.

All of this was complemented by the 360-degree view from the forty-second and forty-third floors of the Ritz. What could have been better on a beautiful summer evening?

Although you were the “face” of Kanopi it is apparent that there was a talented team working with you that ensured the seamless execution of our event.

We have received so many calls from family and friends telling us what a fine time they had Saturday night. I am so pleased that Kanopi was our venue of choice, and that you were there to coordinate it all with us. I would highly recommend Kanopi for anyone looking for a sophisticated venue for any special occasion, and I look forward to hosting future events there. - Alan, July 31st 2018


Colin - Thanks so much. It was a great evening. We had a blast, and it sounds like our guests did, too. Everyone was raving about the food, the space, the service…everything. I know a lot of work went into it for you and Anthony and the team, but for us as hosts and participants, it all felt so elegant and effortless, which I’m especially happy about. We could truly enjoy ourselves because there was nothing to worry about or stress over. So, yes, we are extremely pleased! Our thanks and gratitude to you all. - Lisa


Colin, Chef Goncalves, and Genaro - My family and I would like to express our gratitude for a perfect evening. The air in the room on Saturday was that of complete happiness and pleasure. Thank you to the three of you as well as your whole team. The crew went above and beyond to accommodate our party.

I was extremely impressed with how the staff was attentive and responded to every changing wind. We can plan to the tee but can never anticipate real life! Genaro and his team remained professional and flexible, never rushing us and letting the guests take their time during their meal.

My parents were in awe of the appetizer spread and the generous seconds that the servers kept bringing out to the guests. My nephews loved the appetizers and they kept talking about the Avocado sushi served on the spoon. Unfortunately I was only able to eat some of the cheese and meat spread and the Chicken Skewer. All of which was delicious!

I loved the whole meal especially the Portuguese Codfish which was fresh and moist and so delicious. As well I enjoyed everything else including the dessert and truffles at the end. No one ate my wedding cake but that's ok as your dessert was far better.

Speaking on behalf of everyone we had the most memorable and pleasant evening with beloved friends & family. For myself as the bride it was a truly special night beyond my highest expectations.

Thank you so much for treating me with customized attention. We are so pleased with the food, service and beautiful weather & view. I am truly grateful for all your expertise and hard work. I am definitely coming back to eat again with my new hubby. - Mari


Thank you all for an excellent 1st week. I appreciate each of you and every single member of your team. The entire Kanopi crew consistently goes above and beyond. You are truly blessed to have such a great group of people working for you who clearly love what they do.  It has been a long 10 months on the road and I have worked with many different teams in many different places and I can confidently say your service is on a completely other level. You should be proud of what you have created, it is truly special.

I know our group makes October a long, grueling month and you are all making personal sacrifices to provide us with the best service possible. I just wanted to send a little note saying I appreciate you all and your sacrifices don’t go unnoticed or under appreciated.

I just want to let you know that the event was amazing. Have only had the most positive responses from some of the guests that attended. Nothing was missing and everything was perfect. I have been to many events and restaurants around the world and to be quite honest have never seen a presentation done as well and guests enjoying everything so much. Unfortunately, I didn’t eat much but never really do and part of my job is seeing everyone else enjoyed everything as they did.

Again, thank you for providing us the opportunity to celebrate this special occasion at a special place, with special food and the best service- Arlene, December 2nd 2018


Colin - Now that the dust has settled after Christmas (and before New Year celebrations) I wanted to write you and thank you for your help with the Frictionless event.

The decor was just beautiful, the food and hospitality were nothing short of amazing, and everything worked perfectly. The menus were the finishing detail, and many people saved them as souvenirs!

I wish you and the team all the best and I look forward to working with you again. Thank you! - Mark, December 31st 2018
