Global Cuisine/GC Marketplace Restaurant

"I have had the pleasure of working directly with Cory Moe and R.W. Smith for over twenty years. We have done many projects together. Cory is skilled at his craft and has always been a pleasure to deal with. He can always be counted on and is extremely present and on the job site from the beginning until opening, and then some. We have recently had the pleasure of working together on a very ambitious project called GC Marketplace. It is a flagship restaurant, charcuterie, cheese bar, salads, pizzas, grill station, premium meats, wok sear, pastas, grab and go, wine bar, and wine store. It is a very visual concept with everything being exposed to the guests. There is also a custom designed chef’s table in the open back kitchen as well. There were many challenges to this project but Cory was able to solve every problem. We are currently working on the second location and I would not consider using anyone else other than Cory or R.W. Smith."

"From the first meeting with Art Manni, I felt like RW Smith was committed to our project with our best interests in mind. We worked through many scenarios until we were able to come to the plan that worked best for both our needs and our budget. I felt like we had a partner who was as committed to the end result as we were and that was very comforting throughout the entire process. That carried on well beyond the completion of the job.

I believe there was passion, knowledge and commitment brought to the table in every discussion. There was constant dialogue regarding the hotel’s needs and what was the best way to achieve our goals with design and cost. Ultimately we were able to get everything we wanted and it was a very open and collaborative effort. The extended RW Smith team was available for adjustments and last minute needs as we approached completion of the project and after we were up and running. It was a very comforting feeling to have that kind of support.

We designed and built the most successful new restaurant in Hyatt and certainly in the Huntington Beach and surrounding area. The restaurant has been both highly acclaimed for its design and functionality, due in large part to that collaborative effort between Hyatt, RW Smith and our Designer. The kitchen work that was accomplished far exceeded our expectations in giving us the efficiencies and functionalities we were looking for. All in all, a great partnership and project."

foodservice business

"I had the pleasure of working with Scott Roczey during our multi-million dollar remodel of our Café in Irvine. Scott was a pleasure to work with and brought great ideas to the table along the way. Scott did a great job of assisting the client on the choices of equipment, coordinating the arrival of the pieces and the installation.

I believe the overall project was a huge success and I believe it was due to Scott's ability to communicate and coordinate until the final completion of the project was reached. Scott was not only helpful during the project, he also really helped me personally when we had issues with any of the new pieces of equipment. He got me in touch with the right people and handled all of the warranty issues we had. Scott is a great addition to your team and one should be considered lucky to have him on your side."

"For the past decade I have worked exclusively with RW Smith on all my projects requiring kitchen design. Early in my 28 year career I worked with a wide variety of kitchen consultants, but I turn to RW Smith first when looking for a valued partner.

As the Managing Principal of LPA’s Higher Education Group, I reach out to RW Smith for proposals on potential projects and they respond quickly with very competitive bids. Regardless of who I contact at RW Smith they are responsive and professional. Our experience together and their expertise make our proposals very compelling and, perhaps more importantly, the service and professionalism they provide after we win the job is equaled by their design team. Like LPA, RW Smith has developed a culture within their company of collaboration and providing quality service to their clients.

When it comes to a kitchen design, most institutional clients are very particular and demanding. RW Smith has proven time and time again that they can work with the most demanding clients and deliver an outstanding kitchen design that exceeds expectations. Their knowledge and experience with demonstration kitchens and culinary arts facilities proves very valuable to our higher education clients and ultimately to the end users."
