How does your business stand out?

We are a small company, so we are very flexible with menu options and services. We can offer clients options that are not on the menu or create options specifically for their event.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love making people happy. I enjoy the challenge of catering and the reward of making a special event even more special.

    Bad Experience
    First, I will say that the owner and employees were very nice and friendly but I could never recommend or use them again. Table clothes they gave us were stained, there was not enough food for everyone. The portions were embarrassing, so much so that we overheard guests say "I hope they didn't pay too much for the food". Some of us didn't eat part of the dinner selections so there would be enough for everyone. The chicken was extremely dry. But the worst was the portion size. Even for the desserts, each guest got about 2 bites and what made matters worse, was that catering was packing dessert back up to put in their car, when the guests hadn't had enough.

    Robby, this is very unfair review. if you saw somwthing you did not like on the linen, i wish you would have said something so it could be exchanged. there were an additional 12 guests, and they were arriving even after we started serving. only one person went without one salad. while we did our best to accomodate you, adding 20 percent more to the guest list, the day of, put us in a bind and we had to reduce portion size to serve everyone. you asked us to do so. The mini desserts were 2 per person. i always fix extra, in case anyone wants more. i happily gave out more to several people who requested them. we were able to accomodate 12 vegetarian requests, also unknown. a caterer can only prepare for the known, which is why i request a headcount in advance. I'm more than apologetic that we failed to handle things to your satisfaction. On behalf of my company and my servers, i do feel we did everything we could to accomodate your guests. even after the event in talking to your guests, we amassed many compliments. i wish you would have said something to me then, so i could fix it.

    I would highly recommend Terrace Catering. I will definitely use them in the future. Pamela's estimations were spot on and the food was delicious. Many compliments from guests. Pamela's husband, Mark, was very helpful and willing to do tasks that weren't directly related to catering - helping with spills and other unexpected occurrences that he discreetly managed. I was able to focus on guests and let them take care of the rest! A very successful evening!

    Talk about the perfect catering service.....Terrace Catering is the one. Pamela catered our wedding long distance over the phone and every detail was followed perfectly the night of our wedding.. The hors d'oeuvre were the beginning of a dinner to die for. We started with Pamela's home made hummus the best I have ever eaten. Many of our guests felt the same way. The orange mandarin chicken roll ups were delicious. Our dinner coarse was fantastic, prepared to perfection followed by desserts that were to die for. I highly recommend the stuffed strawberries and caramel pecan cheese cake pie. Pamela's husband Mark was our bartender. Talk about a stress free event, thanks to them we were able to relax and enjoy our guests while they did the set up, serving and clean up for all our food and drink. They were on time, easy to work with down to earth and provided service above and beyond what you would expect. They pay attention to all details and are so reasonably priced. They made our wedding even more special. Great people that give you 110% to make sure your event is perfect. I highly recommend Terrace Catering They are a class act that will not disappoint you .

    Pamela catered a Birthday Party for me and it was wonderful. All the guests were raving about the food and there were very few leftovers. I would recommend TERRACE Catering to anybody. Just a grand lady to deal with and I have NO Complaints.

    We hired Terrace Catering to provide the food for our wedding reception and we could not have been more pleased with the results! Everyone was raving about the food and the selection of desserts. Pam's husband also was the bartender for our reception. He did a great job socializing with the guests and keeping everyone's drinks full. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone for a wedding or any other event where you want personalized attention.

    The food came on time and was delicious and beautiful. We had only appetizers for 20 for a graduation party and I was very pleased with the food. I was not as impressed with the punch being served from a pitcher, was told a 'decanter' which would have been better. I paid for real dishes and the plate was very small. The guests tended to use the paper plates that I brought for back up. I would recommend Terrace Catering.

    Food was great & service was spot on! I did think it was a little pricey. I'm in charge of getting meals catered for my company throughout the country & Terrace Catering was a little bit more than I typically experience.

    Pamela was extremely helpful in the planning stage of our client appreciation event. She brought some dinner items for us to sample to our office in Olathe prior to our event. The food was delicious! We were very pleased when we received the quote for the event. Terrace catering prices were the best that we had gotten from any caterer in the area. The event went very well. Pamela and her help were on time and well prepared. The servers were very conscientious and courteous. The meal was exactly what we expected - very good! We will definitely use Terrace Catering again in the future. Thanks again!

    Pamela and Terrace Catering were wonderful to work with. She and her staff we very professional and did an amazing job. We live out of town and she took the time to answer our phone calls, respond to our emails, and honored all our requests. Pamela helped us make our son's Rehearsal Dinner everything we had hoped it would be. We wanted a menu that represented both Memphis and Kansas and Pamela made it happen. The food was delicious and many of guests made it point to tell us how much they enjoyed it. My husband and I highly recommend Terrace Catering.

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
We list all our prices and what all is included on our website. we average your selections so you only pay one price per person and everyone gets to try everything. RSVP's for food is no fun. people always change their minds anyway.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am always taking classes. the last one I took was a dim sum class. I love to cook...but I also love to learn. I graduated summa cum laude from Washburn.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I was cooking holiday dinner for my large family and everyone kept saying I should open a restaurant. 99% of new restaurants fail in the 1st year, so I opted to cater instead. My husband and I built a 900 square foot kitchen and after building business for 2 years, I quit my computer job and started cooking full time:)
What types of customers have you worked with?
weddings, private parties, rehearsal dinner, wine pairings and ethnic meals. Smaller jobs like lunches and banquets.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I just did a Thai wine and dine event that got rave reviews. The wine and dine events are typically more difficult because they are served outside in a pavilion, on china, and the food still needs to be served at the correct temperature. This means you must plate quickly, cleanly, and serve it all in front of your waiting guests. There is no room for error or sloppiness.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Taste the food. make the caterer come to you. Ask questions about how the leftovers are handled. Ask if there are additional fees that were not outlined for you. Ask for a contract that clearly states what the caterer will provide. Ask for the time that caterer will be on site.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Ask for everything you want and ask for what your budget will allow. A good caterer can work within your lines.
