Michael Solomonov Reviews

  • Our experience from start to finish was really outstanding. I have worked with several other similar organizations in the past but this team is really top notch. They were able to secure the speaker we wanted at a good price. Information was sent quickly. They checked in frequently to make sure we were okay with preparations and have a clear timeline of what to expect. Michael was absolutely wonderful. Kind, personable, funny and really very nice with everyone who wanted to interact with him. He did stayed longer than necessary and made sure everyone had an opportunity to speak with him and even posed for pictures. I highly recommend him and All American Entertainment.

  • Thank you for everything with Chef Michael! He was amazing with the crowd, worked the room perfectly. A lot of the guests said they came to this event just for his food because they can’t get a reservation at Zahav for 60 days out! The food was DIVINE! Both of them were so down to earth and patient, it made working with them that much easier!
