I recently had the pleasure of working with Hope & Grand on a high profile event at The Music Center. I couldn’t be happier with the results! From steering us through the thoughtfully designed menu to working with us on the food display and layout to executing the event itself, Cody and his team were consummate professionals and made the entire process feel effortless. Not only was the food delicious, the food service was impeccable – our guests are still raving! From start to finish the Hope & Grand team went above and beyond to ensure our event was flawless. I highly recommend Hope & Grand to anyone in the LA area looking for tasty, creative food and stellar service.

We couldn’t be happier with what Hope & Grand Events provided for our Holiday Celebration. Food was good, set-up was great, and the service was terrific. We couldn’t ask for more. Thank you!

Thank you, thank you so much for making Proyecto’s Gala so special. I can’t tell you how many people just raved about your venue. It’s the most beautiful, magical setting and made the event really special. We’re grateful to have had a beautifully executed event and thank you for your support in making that happen! Also want to note that we heard from multiple guests that the fish entrée was incredible!

On behalf of the Music Center Foundation THANK YOU for everything you did to make our event such a success. The food was delicious and beautiful and the day-of team was amazing. E.g., they asked me for our menu so they could make a special napkin fold – just above and beyond!

The Symphonian luncheon turned out to be a stellar event! I heard nothing but positive from everyone that the food was awesome, especially the braised ribs – so tender! The dessert was to die for! The service was wonderful, and the general atmosphere was very positive and inviting. Thank you for helping to make such an important event, the first since 2019, so special!
-JEANICE WILLIAMS, Coordinator, Music Center Tours and Special Events
A big thanks to the Hope & Grand Events team for all your hard work in making our Productivity and Quality Awards (PQA) luncheon a success! We had a lot of positive comments about the food and of course, everyone loves Stern Grand Hall at the Music Center.
