What our customers are saying….


“This past July 16, I surprised my wife Mary Beth on her 75th birthday by inviting some 40 relatives and friends to a dinner party in the Signature Room at Gecko’s Palmer Crossing. The party was a complete success, and your event manager, Ms. Michelle Graber, played a key role in the attainment of that success. From my first approach regarding the arrangements in February, Michelle was always positive and highly encouraging and supportive, thus making my job so much easier! From the menu items to decorations, audio/video support, to advising me on how to plan the arrival so as to maximize the element of surprise, answering my emails even while on vacation in NY, she was a true professional throughout a 5-month planning period. Your organization can consider itself very fortunate to have such a high-caliber professional among its employees. Please accept my thanks to you and, especially, Michelle, for making such a happy occasion a memorable one.” ~Antonio M.


“We are from out of town and needed a place to host our son’s wedding rehearsal dinner for 42 people. Gecko’s Signature Room turned out to be the perfect choice! Michelle helped me plan our buffet meal choices (which were delicious), the setup for the tables, linens, & all the little details which can be overwhelming when you are out of town. You can have a stocked bar set up or not…your choice. There is a separate entrance to the Signature Room but all the advantages of having the great food prepared next door at Gecko’s Grill. There is even a pull down screen if you want to show slides/video. Prices are very reasonable, too. I highly recommend this place – a real hidden gem in Sarasota!!”


“We entertained thirty people in The Signature Room next to Gecko’s last night and were very pleased with the arrangement. The food and service were very good and it was the perfect location for our office function. (I’m almost afraid to let the secret out as the room may not be available again when we return!) We ordered mini Beef Wellingtons, Chicken Wings, Franks in a Blanket with spicy mustard, Chicken Taquitos as well as other appetizers and they were very well received”


“We had a great birthday party. Everything was handled perfectly, the service great, the food terrific and the room worked perfectly. I would do it again in a blink.” ~Beverly Alter, Private Party


“We just sent you a Thank You note for the party you did for us. It was all just perfect and have heard only good things about the food, the service, nice location, and how nice the room looked for the party…Thanks again.” ~Wilma Jordan, Husband’s 90th birthday party


“Stringer Management had the unveiling of the new look of our Company celebrating 22 years of service (in the Signature Room). The quality, the room and the staff were top notch. The room is a great addition for Sarasota to have such a small but great room for a nice function. Will book again and will tell Sarasota about the Signature Room at Gecko’s.” ~Marge Hollinger, Stringer Management


“I was actually going to reach out to you today to tell you we had a Wonderful Time! My husband was quite surprised and it was exactly what he wanted (no decorations, very laid back, more like a cocktail party).” ~Sonnet Rasnake, Birthday Party


“I just wanted to let you know that you guys did an amazing job I can’t thank you enough. Jeff was obviously very surprised and had a great time. You and Danielle and the rest of your staff were fantastic!!!! Thank you again for making Jeff’s party so great.” ~ Kathy Ayers, Surprise Party

“I want to thank you again for putting together such a beautiful reception for Al and I. Everyone was impressed with the room, service, staff and food. Here’s a quote from one of our friends, too: ‘Geckos did a great job on the luncheon…nicely put together…great place for a small party! The staff was so nice and accommodating to everyone.’ It was a very comfortable experience working with you. I’ll recommend your facility anytime. Thanks again, Michelle.” ~Fran and Al
