  • Our experience with the Sentinel was top notch! We worked with Diane from start to finish and she made sure we were comfortable, had all our questions answered and that everything was seamless and beautiful for our big day. They especially worked with us when it came to our menu as my husband has many food allergies. They took everyone into account and made sure all our food was perfect for all our guest. The day of staff was incredible and made sure everything ran smoothly! Thank you so so much! We couldn’t have chosen a more beautiful and well ran venue!

  • Diane & her team at Jakes Catering were more than accommodating to our requests. She and her team were able to source everything we requested (including, but not limited to.. vegan options, halal meat) for a party of over 300 guests. Diane was always responsive and helped us enjoy a stress-free wedding celebration. She went above and beyond in helping us identify the right vendors and details of our DELICIOUS meal! Would highly recommend them for their professionalism, quality, and their desire to go above and beyond to accommodate our requests. THANK YOU!

  • To be honest, when my fiancé and I were on our way to meet Kirsten to view Sentinel's event spaces we planned on saying thank you but no thanks. We just didn't think it would be in our budget. Kirsten walked us though the 2nd floor billiard room and library, explained what was included in booking with them and asked us our budget. She said that was doable. My husband was sold right there, that day. After receiving quotes a couple of business days later, I was on the same page; Especially with it including our preferred dinner choice, tacos (which were delicious by the way)! Kirsten is so kind, responsive and helpful. It was like working with one of our closest friends.

  • Kirsten, the Catering Sales Manager, is the sweetest, kindest person and made working with Jake's the best experience. We utilized a newer service Jake's offers for food catering pick-up, which was very easy to use. We placed the order and day of everything was packaged up for easy transport. We did a picnic wedding so ordered sandwiches - which included individual bags of chips and huge chocolate chip cookies. We also had a very pretty fruit display and multiple picnic salads. Kirsten was always quick to respond and was very helpful with our changing wedding plan. My now husband and I cannot wait to renew our wedding vows in a few years and use the Sentinel's Library for a beautiful party. I highly recommend Jake's!

  • We hosted our wedding reception at the Sentinel, and we couldn't have been happier with the venue and the team at Jake's. Kirsten was wonderful to work with—warm, patient, resourceful, organized, and insightful. We had our cocktail hour in the Renaissance Room and a dinner reception and dancing in the Grand Ballroom, with a total of about 200 guests. The food was excellent, the bartending solid, and the venue beautiful. We rented an ivory drape to cover the stage in the Grand Ballroom, chiavari chairs, and some gold accents—but no further rentals or external decorations were needed; the space is gorgeous as-is. If you're looking for a classic vibe and a venue that doesn't require lots of external rentals, consider the Sentinel!

  • By far the best decision I've made was having my wedding at The Sentinel with Jake's Catering. My guests still rave around how beautiful the ceremony/reception rooms were and how amazing the food and staff was. I literally did not have to worry about anything the day of the wedding. For example, someone had mentioned in passing my husband liked cherry coke. When we got to our table there was a cherry coke waiting for him. We also had a couple of guests with pretty severe tree nut allergies. The banquet team made sure they let these guests know exactly what was in the dishes and had nuts off to the side instead of in the dishes. Kristin, my Sales Catering Manager, was responsive and just in general amazing to work with. Seriously, if you want a stress-free wedding, book with Jake's Catering at The Sentinel!

  • Loved every single thing about my experience with my wedding venue! The staff at every level was incredible to work with. The food was amazing , I got so many compliments from my guests. Of course the ambiance is second to none in the city of Portand... My ceremony was in the library (120) guests and I loved the intimacy & beauty it provided. We then moved to the Grand ballroom with a live band and DJ, rockin' the house there for the reception. I loved that the spaces were ALL mine for the entire day for set up (rare to find at wedding venues). This is a "turn key" operation and made for a stress free day with all the service I was provided. If you are considering this venue, "book it!" You won't be disappointed!

  • We had a plated dinner at our wedding and requested for our toasts to have champagne brought out for each guest on trays and Jake's accommodated all of our wishes and then some. They accommodated dietary restrictions and catered to our every need and request. The food and drink provided and the service were top-notch and nothing short of Jake's impeccable standards. They really are a stand out company.

  • We loved our experience with Jake's Catering, The Sentinel Hotel, and our main point of contact, Julie Weiss, the Social Sales Manager. Julie was wonderful, making herself available on weekends, before hours, and after hours. Our wedding was executed perfectly and a lot of that credit goes to Jake's Catering and Julie. The food, catered by Jake's Catering, was as advertised. We had the chicken, Flank Stead, and Salmon. People were raving about the food. Several people said it was the best wedding buffet they've ever had. Combine that with the location (Ballroom inside of The Sentinel Hotel), and we had a storybook wedding ceremony & reception. The final "icing on top" was the price. The price is reasonable and fair when compared to other competing venues. The food and location at The Sentinel are superior, so we felt like we got a great deal. A+. Highly recommended.

  • Absolutely LOVED every part of our experience with Jake's catering. We started working with Julie a year before our wedding and she was there for us every step of the way. From our first tour of the event spaces to our food tasting- every single meeting was professional and the staff made us feel welcome. Our reception was held in the beautiful Governors Ballroom which was absolutely stunning and more than enough room for our party size of 250+. The food was AMAZING and the service matched. They were also very accommodating to those in our party with food allergies or food restrictions. Every single employee went above and beyond any and all our expectations and we received so many compliments on the venue and quality of food to reflect that. We wouldn't have changed a thing and are so grateful to everyone with Jake's who was apart of our special day!

  • Very experienced and helpful in each step of the process. All the pricing and options were honest and candid. Our contact was professional and easy to work with. I sent her tons of questions and she was always happy to help with a quick response. Finally, they were very flexible. We could meet with our Jake's contact and could tour or meet as often as needed (with parents, coordinator). On the day of our wedding, the staff was friendly and helpful. It was good to have a day-of coordinator on my end to make sure everything was ready to go at our standards because there were a few (minor) issues, but the staff and venue were accommodating.

  • We picked Jake's Catering at the Sentinel because we couldn't get over how pretty the rooms were. There was a bit of a snafu in the beginning because they quoted us the wrong price for the rooms due to us needing to take down Christmas decorations for our non-Christian late-December wedding, but once we negotiated this part, everything was wonderful. The food was **delicious.** The rooms stunningly beautiful. They worked with me to set up a custom room block, and the guests raved about the hotel. They were open, responsive, sometimes even anticipating my questions and needs. Really great job, overall.

  • The team at Jake's Catering at the Sentinel were a dream to work with. We had a holiday wedding, New Years Eve, and the way the pricing worked, the Sentinel (Jake's) was actually cost effective compared to other event venues in Portland. We booked super early (November the year before the wedding). So we worked with them for a long time, they had some staff turnover, but they handled the transitions really well and didn't miss a beat. Everything was great, from the food to the service. The wait staff was incredible, they were so kind and accommodating the whole night. We had a great experience with Jakes and I would recommend Jakes/the Sentinel to any couple looking for a beautiful indoor venue and great food.
