Their catering service is absolutely first class! We absolutely love their service, and we didn't get one complaint from anyone eating the food. It was really worth the price and they really made us feel like we were special clients. We would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for a quality caterer at a competitive price.

We had an amazing wedding. we got in on a special and learned a few tricks in the business to receive additional discounts- which made our dream wedding a reality. the staff here is amazing. Holly helped us all along the way and answered all of my questions and was flexible, letting me pick and choose how I wanted things to work, let us stop by several times to try and figure out set up, etc. worked with us on a custom menu and selection. Zach set up the ceremony site and helped us with our final set up decisions and also with the flow of the ceremony and dinner reception. Holly thought of almost everything and managed to keep a dialogue going with me for several months during planning and constructing. It takes a lot more thought and consideration planning a wedding that I would have ever imagined but she helped make it easier.\r\nOnly cons were: there was a slight delay in response, but this is common I found out-in the wedding industry. There was a slight misunderstanding and one ingredient that was pretty adamantly left out of the menu-due to severe reaction-was accidentally included during the wedding -yikes, but catastrophe was avoided as I caught it in time and removed it from the plate.\r\nWe had such a good time, we forgot to make ourselves a doggy bag to take with us and the food was SO good but we didnt have a good chance to eat, so I was bummed about that. The tastings we went to were amazing-we loved everything and had a very difficult time choosing only a couple of appetizers and only one dish for dinner! But that\'s a good problem to have.\r\nWe loved the Spice of Life and felt very lucky to have had our wedding here outdoors with the flatirons in the backdrop and a wonderful space with plenty of room for our guests and a built-in dancefloor (as well as a back up rain plan) and free parking-all in such a beautiful space.\r\nDefinitely recommend them.

The food from A Spice of Life was AMAZING. They were so flexible with us changing our reception venue only a month away from the wedding and the contact that we dealt with was so helpful and cooperative. They gave us complimentary cheese and cracker platters for the bridal party so we had something to munch on while getting ready. They also put together a picnic basket with leftover snacks for my hubby and me when we left the reception. The only thing that made me give a 4.5 was that they didn't realize that our cake topper was not supposed to be cut up for the guests to eat (we had cupcakes with a topper) so we only ended up getting 2 pieces of our cake to save for our first anniversary. Other than that the service was great.

A Spice of Life was great!!!

My husband and I are extremely picky eaters so we needed a catering company with the flexibility and willingness to provide us with food we would like. A Spice of Life was willing to do anything we wanted... Anything. We had so many special requests that I'm sure they thought we were crazy, but they accommodated them all without complaint. They were also very great about working with my sister's severe food allergies.

If you have special food requests, or even if you don't, A Spice of Life is the catering company to go with! You won't be disappointed!
