Dear Penny and all the staff at Flutes!

We would like to send a massive thank-you for allowing us to have our wedding reception with you. We had an unforgettable day, and many compliments about how amazing the service, food and overall venue was. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment working along side you all, as you made the whole process go smoothly.

Penny, we must thank you personally for all the hard work that goes on behind the scenes, making sure we have everything organised. You were on the ball at every moment, and made us feel at ease as we knew everything would be under control.

Can’t wait to come back and celebrate our wedding anniversaries at the most amazing venue.

   

Thanks

Hi Penny,

Just wanted to send a quick email with a HUGE thank you to you and all the Flutes Staff for the AMAZING day we had on our wedding day (16th January). Everything was perfect…. the set up of the ceremony and reception area was beautiful, the food was DELICIOUS (and we’ve had plenty of comments from our guests about how good it was) and the service was spot on. It was just what we wanted, so thank you!

I’ve attached a few photos that I thought really show off how amazing the gardens and grounds at Flutes are! Our favourite is the amazing rainbow shot we got on the grass outside the restaurant!!

Thanks again,

Hi Diane,

We would like to thank you and your staff for a great evening function at Flutes Restaurant.

We had organized a conference for business partners primarily from Australia and New Zealand and a number from as far away as Singapore, USA and UK. We were keen to showcase the best the south western corner of our State has to offer!

The funciton at Flutes Restaurant was one of the culinary delights of the conference! The food and wine were both wonderful and the venue was exactly what we had hoped for. The evening was the subject of many complimentary comments.

On behalf of our many guests, we would like to thank you for a truly memorable evening.

We had the pleasure of dining Saturday 27th March. We were celebrating our best friend’s 50th and our meals will always remain as part of the memories of a fantastic day.

The service was outstanding, very non invasive. As for all of our meals, outstanding. To the chefs I had the dream of having the taste plate of desserts, my description ” morsels of heaven”.

Thank you

Our family had a luncheon booking for last Sunday 1 August. It was the day of my mother’s 85th birthday and we were very impressed with the efficient service and excellent food. More than that, however, we were delighted that the staff all seemed to know that it was a special occasion and went to a lot of trouble to make my mother feel very special. The surprise dessert complete with birthday greetings and the French speaking server were absolutely the icing on a wonderful cake. Thank you so much, everyone of you associated with Flutes.

Jacqui & Peter Sanders

Dear Diane

I hope this e-mail finds you well. I would just like to drop you a note in regard to our Wedding at Flutes on 21st February 2009.

Peter asked me half way through the evening if the day had been all I imagined it to be. My reply was I could never have hoped for a day as perfect as it had been.

I have very little doubt that you receive a constant flow of complementary comments from your clientele on a regular basis as your standard of service is without a doubt world class! But I would say that to Peter and I, Francois and his menu, the kitchen staff, the waiters and waitresses on the night and yourself for the effort in arranging the day made for us a totally special and perfect day, one that will live in our hearts for a very long time to come.

Thank you all so much.

Next time we are back in Margaret River, we will come and visit again.

Hi Diane

Well, we’re back in Perth and had a wonderful time once again in MR.

I must say however, a trip to the SW wouldn’t be complete without lunch and/or dinner at Flutes.

Our lunch was almost idyllic with the surroundings, regardless of the weather, and of course the great food and Brookland wine!

The lunch was the highlight of our short trip and is something we can relay to our friends.

Thanks again.

Dear Diane & the Staff at Flutes,

Sorry it’s taken a while to send this thank you note. I was waiting on my photos. I wanted to enclose a few of my favourite shots taken in your beautiful gardens.

We can not thank you enough for the most amazing job you all did to make our wedding day so special and amazing. From the service to the food it could not have been faulted, not to mention the view with the full moon. All of our guests are still talking about the day, and I’m sure will still be for a long time to come. Glenn and I will never forget our special day and we have you to thank for being a part of it.

Our family and friends loved the venue and we had no complaints from anyone about anything. So a big thanks to all the staff there. We have many memorable moments now and stories that everyone will share regarding the day.

Hello
My Son and now daughter in law were recently married at Flutes in December 2008 and my Wife and I would like to thank you for the wonderful day and evening that we along with all our family and friends experienced. Your setting, staff, food and presentation for the wedding were all of the highest standard and we would like to thank you for the effort and attention to detail in all these areas.

As business owners in Albany employing many staff we are aware of the effort that goes into training and scheduling to have staff on hand when required particularly in the climate we saw in 2008 although 2009 may be a different story. Your staff on the night were great. We will certainly be recommending people to enjoy your facilities should the situation arise in the future.

Greetings

So sorry we are sending this card to you months after the event, but we just wanted to send you a HUGE THANK YOU for making our wedding luncheon on 3 May 2008 such a fantastic and memorable occasion.

We have enjoyed lunch at Flutes often (in fact every time we visit the South West), so it wasn’t a hard decision for us to decide where to celebrate our wedding feast; both the food and the service were second to none and all our guests raved about, not only the food, but the whole experience.

We will be in Margaret River from 2 January to 9 January and are planning to have lunch at Flutes one day in the week with members of our family.

Again, thank you and all the very best to you all for a happy and healthy 2009.

Special thanks to Renee for all your help and support in organising our big day. You made everything so easy and your willingness to go above and beyond your call of duty was most appreciated. It was comforting to know that the reception was in safe hands and we could just relax and enjoy the evening, knowing that all the little details were taken care of.

A big thank you must also go to Francois and his culinary team. It is so true that the food at a wedding will live on in people’s memories long after the bouquet is tossed. Your delectable food exceeded our expectations and our guests are still talking about how sensational it was.

Christine & Glenn Oversby

Glenn & I would like to express our greatest thanks to yourself firstly. Nothing was too much trouble. You are a, “there is no such thing as a problem, only solutions” person and we loved that J
Everyone who attended the reception have raved over the food, the service and the atmosphere. We are not surprised Flutes Restaurant has been awarded a Golden Plate award, congratulations.
The owners must be extremely proud of the team they have put together and great teams come from great management and Flutes have hit on a winning combination.

The only regret we have is not being able to express our thanks in person, as you were off enjoying a well-deserved day off, when we called in, we’re sorry we missed you.
I could go on & on but the best word I can find to use is, Perfect!
Everything was Perfect & everyone was Perfect. Please pass onto all of your team our appreciation.

There is already talk of coming back for an anniversary celebrations 🙂 🙂

Many, many thanks

Christine & Glenn Oversby
