Chef Nik and his staff were PERFECT. Absolutely no complaints. We went to a tasting at his location. The atmosphere was really cool. Romantic dinner style. We were very pleased with the tasting and decided to move forward with his company. Everything was fairly straightforward. He emailed us the menu options, and we communicated via email. He was very responsive, and attended our meeting with our venue to straighten out the last minute details.

During the wedding: 1 hr of cocktails / appetizers. Mini kobe burgers, red/yellow pepper bruschetta, bacon wrapped scallops. All 3 were big hits and I received many compliments about each one of them. The best part was that even though my wife and I were overwhelmed, Nik's staff came to us when we were taking pictures and specifically made sure we were able to taste the appetizers. It was very thoughtful and made us very happy. For the main meal we ordered celebration salad, asparagus, carmelized onion mashed potatoes, and chicken w/ brown butter and sage. Everything tasted really good, and the line moved fairly quickly. Nik served us at our sweetheart table and I had no complaints. They also cut our cake, and did a great job on that as well.

Overall I really appreciated the work that Nik and his staff put out in order to make our wedding day special. A+, highly recommend.

This will change every expectation you have for catered dinners. Delicious. If this was a restaurant i would come for special occasions regularly. The value was beyond excellent and worth more than we paid for . Our buffet had roasted chicken with brown butter sage and sirloin steak with balsamic glaze, celebration salad, garlic smashed potatoes . Each guest was provided with BOTH chicken and steak entrees. For 100 guests this station staffed buffet dinner with bar tending service, glassware, was just over 3 grand . We got a deal with free 3 passed appetizers for signing up during promotion . They include buffet tables, cake cutting, coffee service and infused water at no charge. Nik is fantastic and made 3 special vegetarian entrees at no additional charge ! Highly recommend !

The Arizona Inspirations Catering team is wonderful!! Nik's food is amazing and will definitely leave you full but wanting seconds - it's that delicious. The team was professional and courteous throughout the entire planning process and day of the wedding. The tastings prior to the final decision made it difficult to settle on just a few items - everything was super scrumptious! I would definitely love to work with Nik and his team again. I would also recommend them for your upcoming event...wedding, birthday, business meetings, anything! Thank you again so much Nik and team at Arizona Inspirations Catering!

We chose Arizona Inspiations to provide the catering for our daughters' wedding - they did not disappoint ! We had interviewed several caterers and found Nik to be the best. His food choices were excellent and his pricing was also the best. We had several meals at his offices and they were all terrific and we finally settled on a menu.
The day of the wedding Nik and his crew arrived early and operated seamlessly throughout the night. The food was excellent and the guests had nothing but good things to say. Many guests had seconds - that says alot. His staff was attentive and provided great service all night long.
I highly recommend using Arizona Inspirations for your next catering event 0 you will not be disappointed.

You will not be disappointed with the food, service, or attention to detail at AZ Inspirations. Nick and his staff were amazing from the first menu tasting to the churro bar at the end of our wedding. He really took the time to get to know us and built a menu that we not only loved but also one that all of our guests couldn't stop raving about. Not only is he a genius with food but he also provided us honest and beneficial insight into many aspects of our wedding including venues, DJs, and vendors. He really knows his stuff. Going to his menu tastings made a stressful process enjoyable and I can only hope he opens a restaurant one day. No questions asked I would hire Nick and his staff for any event!

Nik at Arizona Inspirations Catering is FAB! We stumbled across him from a great review on Yelp! We decided to reach out and give him a try and that was one of our BEST decisions! His pricing is REALLY good, his food is DELISH and he was super easy to work with. We went to 3 different tasting to get a good idea of his cooking abilities and each time were amazed at how delicisous his food was!

Nik is more of a "small business" opposed to the commercial caterers in the Valley and I really like that about it him. He gets to know you, understands what you're looking for and makes the experience very personal. You don't just feel like you're a number with him; rather you feel like he truly cares about making your wedding day very special.

You MUST reach out to Nik if you're looking for caterers; you won't be disappointed!

We hired Arizona Inspirations Catering for our daughters wedding. We had a plated dinner with 3 different choices for our guests along with a cocktail hour and open bar. Our daughter was married on March 8th 2013 during a heavy rain storm. Nick and his staff served the food hot and in a timely manner. Our guests are still raving about the food and the great servers and bartenders.
Thanks Nick for making this a day to remember!

What can we say that other reviews haven't already said. Nick catered our wedding (which had 265 guests!) with ease and professionalism. He was very responsive and easy to work with. The buffet at our wedding was very well organized and our guests all were served quickly. As for the food, I bet it was no easy feat to cook for that many guests, but everything came out hot and tasted fantastic! The salad was fresh and tasted awesome along with the green chili mashed potatoes and chicken. It was a great combination and our guests complimented us on our food. Unlike other caterers, Nick offered free tastings (we went to 3 of them to get our menu finalized) and we are talking full course meals here, accompanied with great tasting wine. It was one of the fun things of planning the wedding. He really tries to personalize the menu based on the couple's tastes and wedding style. His pricing was by far the most affordable of all the caterers we looked into. He also did the cake cutting service for free and provided beverage service, including coffee, which was a nice little extra. Nick and his crew did a fantastic job for our wedding. He will not disappoint you. We definitely plan on using him again and are looking for an event where he can cater for us. :)

Nik was very nice. Our tastings were AMAZING. So many good choices it was hard. I did find my January wedding date to be a challenge due to the holiday season. His wait staff was sooo great they even helped finish all the set up we were doing ourselves. Especially the leader i don't remember her name but she had long dark hair and kept everything running smooth. The passed appetizers where great, and went so fast. The dinner was good. During the tasting the pork with mustard sauce was mind-blowing =] The chicken was very good and got lots of compliments. They Boxed up my cake very well at the end of the night. They did and awesome job at cleanup and my venue loved them. I cant say enough about how great Nik's staff is! Overall it was a great catering experience for a great price. Thanks Nik I appreciate all you did, so i didnt have to worry so much on my wedding day.

Nik and his entire staff were so amazing!!! We had two tastings prior to the wedding with Nik and he gave us so many options and everything was wonderful. We only did a cocktail reception with hors douerves and there was so much food my guests have said it felt like they had dinner. Everything was delicious!! Nik assured that a tray was made for Bryan and I and a server was there to ensure I actually ate.... that was so wonderful considering I didn't want to take the time for myself.... she let me know it was ok and necessary. A step above! This truly is the best decision of my wedding! Thank you Nik!!! Jessica & Bryan
