Above and beyond would be one way I desribe the quality and service that I received from Gourmet Guy Catering. Matt and his team were kind, patient, and professional. Matt worked to tailor a menu to suit our wants and needs. So many of the guests at our wedding complimented how delicious the food and service was. The food was beyond what you would expect at a typical wedding. The chicken was cooked to perfection! The waitstaff were so attentive and willing to jump in wherever needed. One of the ladies even helped me carry my dress and an umbrella as I had to make a run through the pouring rain. It is clear that Matt and the reast of the team at Gourmet Guy are passionate about their work and committed to quality service. They are honest, fair, and talented.

Damon and his team made my daughter's birthday party go over the top. His attention to detail is beyond amazing. I explained to him that my family and I had bad experiences with mandatory caterers from venues in the past and I really wanted the food to be the correct temperature. He exceeded my expectations. The menu was amazing but the brisket stole the show. The brisket was so tender and delicious. This team is so down to earth, friendly and talkative my guests and I were very comfortable. My family was excited to find out that a team member is vegan and that catering for my vegan guests in the future would be no problem. So many people requested his information because of their personalities as well. But the ultimate seal of approval that this food was delicious was from my 80 year old Grandparents that asked me to hire him for their 64th wedding anniversary. They are from Louisiana and have been cooking since they were kids and my grandfather smokes his meat for all our family events. They both said, "his food is so delicious, we can rest this year". Damon made my event wonderful for everyone. He made my daughter a ice cream buffet with all the fixings. She said, "This is the best birthday ever" His professionalism blew me away, the presentation was amazing. I am still over the moon with how the event went last night.

They catered my wedding of 110 guests in my outdoor rustic barn wedding. They showed up early and were ready. I didn't have to check on them or ask them anything. They were self sufficient. Guests loved the food! They will make anything you want!

She went above and beyond with her ideas she was very creative and thought of things that I wouldn't even begin to think of and all kept it within our budget. I even have pictures if anybody would ever like to see them you can just ask Tracy and I will send them to her or she has pictures as well.

Outsourced Soirée catered for my wedding shower. From the very beginning Veronica and her staff went above and beyond, personalizing not only food choices, but tables linens, decor and overall ambience. The staff was friendly and extremely eager to please- going well beyond their duties. They assisted in set up, break down and clean up of the event. Our home and kitchen were under construction, outsourced soirée didn't miss a beat even in the midst of the chaos! I had an outstanding experience with this company and plan to use them moving forward. I would highly recommend their services!

Scott and his crew catered our wedding on July 25, 2015 and they were awesome. Our guests all thought that it was so unique to have a pizza truck at the wedding and it worked out perfectly. Scott was very accommodating to all of our menu requests and everyone raved about the pizza and chicken dish as well as the gelato that he made for the end of the evening. Scott and his crew were very professional, knowledgable, and respectful during the planning process and the event. We would definitely recommend them to anyone!

If you’re looking for a highly customized catering experience, I can’t recommend Brian Doyle and the staff at Sow Food enough. Nothing comes prepackaged at Sow Food which makes it stand out among so many other catering companies in Northeast Ohio. Brian and his team spent a lot of time with my husband and me during our initial meetings. He came up with an extremely customized menu that was so personal to us—reflecting places we’ve visited, our sourcing values and even personal anecdotes. The team was very thorough throughout the entire planning process. Our venue was a challenge due to the fact that they had no kitchen, running water or other accommodations usually required by a catering company. As a guest, you would never know what conditions they were working under. The staff was wonderful and our appetizers, meals, cocktails and the dessert bar were one of the most memorable parts of our evening. Sow Food served as such an essential element to making our wedding day so very personal and memorable for everyone involved. Not many wedding guests gush about the food afterward, but ours sure did!

Patty was awesome from start to finish for our wedding! She did all of our planning, coordinating, organizing - as much as we needed! She found our officiant, ordered the cakes, planned the menu, designed the space, and managed every detail perfectly! She was so easy to work with and had great ideas for everything from decor to timing of the different events and managing the guests. She has excellent taste and great organizational skills. I never worried! I highly recommend P&P Events! Everything was perfect for our special day.

Wrap It Up

When my husband and I were looking for wedding venues we targeted ones that would allow us to bring in our own caterers. Although we have had some pretty good "wedding food" in the past, we wanted to break away from the formal/traditional wedding setup and incorporate a more relaxed and fun atmosphere into our reception. Wrap It Up definitely helped us to accomplish this! Not only was the food phenomenal, but the staff was some of the friendliest and most accommodating group of individuals I had the pleasure of dealing with. Chef Anthony sat down with me to discuss my list of wants/needs, and then gave me suggestions on how he and his team could help make it the best day ever! We planned a menu that focused on their signature wrap menu (and TOTS), but served it in a way that allowed for individuals to also create their own flavor combinations. This allowed for those with food allergies and dietary restrictions to create a meal that would fit their needs. Guests were also able to choose items a la carte, or for the carb conscious individuals, select to have their meal "unwrapped." We have more than a few vegetarians and a handful of individuals with gluten allergies and this setup really helped to allow them access to foods they can eat. Not to mention the Zesty Veggie Wrap was the food of choice for even some of our most carnivorous guests (it’s just so good!!!). As much as I can appreciate a good formal wedding dinner it never fails that mid-way through the reception I always find myself hungry because the portions are typically smaller. With Wrap It Up as our caterer there was no need for guests to make a late night taco bell run as they were served with hearty portions of home cooked food full of robust flavors. Wrap It Up also put together snack trays for our cocktail hour which included a fruit tray and cheese and crackers. All of this as well was entirely customizable based on the budget we had agreed upon. I truly can’t thank Wrap It Up enough for their service. Of all the vendors we had they were the ONLY vendor to not ask me (The Bride) any questions on the wedding day. They made it a point to cover all bases prior to the wedding day so that all that was left was a well-planned execution. So much time is spent on selecting the perfect wedding vendors to help you achieve your "dream wedding." For my husband and I that dream was very simple: all of our friends, lots of beer, and exceptional food. Wrap It Up delivered more than we could have asked for!! I would hire them again in an instant! P.S. Don't forget the TOTS!!! :)

Simply Exquisite planned and catered my wedding. Isalene was attentive to what I wanted with the budget I was working with. She was patient and took time to listen to what I wanted. She worked with me from beginning to end. Everything from the church to the reception was handled professionally and was very beautiful. The food was excellent. I received many good compliments on the food and my wedding overall. It was a beautiful day and everything was done the way I wanted it. Simply Exquisite is definitely the choice for your event and catering needs.
