They anticipated every need. We have hosted many events at various venues & we have raved to everyone about what a fabulous evening we had. The Blue Ocean room was perfect, & the special menu was a nice touch. Our feedback from the guests has been really positive. Everyone complimented the food.
Thanks for the great wine selection … Loved the choices.

Hi Emma,
Thank you so much for the card and email! You are all so wonderful!
The servers that were looking after our group were truly amazing. They went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and having a great time. I was shocked to hear that David had only been working for Minami for such a short period of time because he was AMAZING! He went out of his way to learn one of the kids names that was with our group… and had a really fun time with him throughout the night. It was pretty sweet 🙂
I couldn’t be more impressed with the staff. They made the evening very successful!
Thank you again for such a wonderful evening. I am so pleased and impressed with everyone at Minami – including you!
Happy Holidays to you all!
