    I would give them a million stars! Wendi answered all my many questions quickly and was sweet. The food was magnificent. Awesome sweet potato casserole, smokey BBQ chicken, and shrimp pasta were my favorites. I had an event catered for 50 people, and we had 64 people attend. I'm sure we had enough food left over to feed 50 more people. I took home about 50% of the food we ordered home. Many people complimented on the great food, and 4 people asked for the caterers information.

    Food was great. Laurie, the girl that delivered the food each day went above and beyond to make sure that everything was set up and stayed to help.

    I was very happy with this caterer. The food was great, there was plenty of it and they were on time and cleaned up after themselves. What impressed me initially was how acommodating they were to my needs. Other caterers told me what they would do, but Wendi asked me what I wanted and made it work for me and I very much appreciated that. I would highly recommend this caterer.

    We hired Wendi to cater our sorority formal and she exceeded my expectations! We ordered pumpkin and chocolate brownies, egg rolls and veggie spring rolls, marinara and teriyaki meatballs (which were amazing!), and pulled pork and chicken sliders. The food was a hit and she dropped it off on time and was very flexible. I would definitely hire her again for future events and recommend to use her catering services. Thanks Wendi for making our party a success!

    Wendi was wonderful and so was her catering! She was more than helpful and not only helped me cater for our meeting within our very tight budget, but also helped me to find a venue to hold it at. The food was excellent, plentiful, delivered on time, every time. Superb job! I have no hesitation in recommending Wendi to cater for any event

    My husband and I were visiting NOLA with a large group for a few days and hosted a private dinner in our vacation rental. Trying to set up an event from across the country was challenging and Wendi was very helpful in planning the menu and answering any questions thrown her way. We had some last minute headcount changes and supplier issues, both of which she handled like a champ! Then there was the food....SO GOOD. It's not often you can get a group of foodies to be unanimously impressed. Anything we couldn't shove in our faces at the dinner table became coveted breakfast fare the next morning. There wasn't a scrap left unclaimed. Wendi, thank you for all of your work and making our dinner a highlight of the trip!

    Wendi was wonderful to work with and ensured our catering experience was flawless. The venue even hired her for the morning after brunch. Food was great too- in fact we are defrosting some leftovers today. Thank you Wendi and staff.

    Fed 35 men and all were more than pleased. The BBQ plate with the chicken and pork was not lacking in meat. The food tasted great too! I will definately use Fleur De Lis Catering again. Thanks
  • Jennifer S. Sep 10, 2012
    I used Wendi to cater my husband's 60th birthday party. She handled everything from the food to arranging rental for tables, chairs, fans, tents and even the Margarita machine. The food was a 10+ and stress-free since Wendi handled everything right down to arranging delivery and pick up for all of the rental items. Our guest raved about the food and a great time was had by all. Wendi always answered my calls and always gave me the answers I needed. We will definitely use Wendi again! Thanks Wendi!!!

    I used Fleur De Lis Foods to cater my party. I couldn't have been more please with the delicious food and friendly service. Wendi is very professional and knows her business. Thanks for making my party a success!
  • Helen K. May 3, 2011
    Wendi was great! She worked within our budget, yet still provided delicious food with all the extras we needed (tables, chairs, tent). She was always on time, followed any dietary restrictions we gave her, and even cooked several on camera meals for us. (We had several Thanksgiving dinners in the movie). I'd enthusiastically recommend her for your next project.

    My production had a great experience with Fleur De Lis Foods Catering. Wendi was prompt, flexible, and dependable. Our crew was always happy with the food in their bellies.
  • Kathleen L. May 3, 2011
    I was the First Assistant Director for an independent feature film in New Orleans in 2009, and Wendi Smith was our caterer. She and Fleur De Lis Foods did an absolutely outstanding job with providing food for our cast and crew! The food was extremely tasty, and there was always lots of variety over the 25 day shoot. I cannot recommend Fleur De Lis Foods highly enough for the wonderful job they did for our project.
