We loved Big City! Initially we narrowed down our catering choices between Big City and Puff and Stuff. After tastings at both, Big City was the obvious choice. We worked with Kristina, and I loved her! She was so easy to get in touch with and went above and beyond to help us out on our big day. We had a fajita fiesta and our guests kept commenting on how good the food was! I would hands down recommend Big City to anyone looking for flavorful food at a reasonable price and excellent customer service :)

The food and drinks throughout the entire event were amazing. The staff was completely professional throughout the entire event and made sure that everything food wise went smoothly. Big City made sure that as the bride and groom, we were taken care of as well being that we wouldn't have a lot of time to get things for ourselves.

I was truly impressed with Big City Catering. Their prices were reasonable and their customer service is excellent. Kristina answered all of my questions quickly. The day of the wedding, the passed h'orderves were presented with pink flowers on the serving dishes which looked great and matched my wedding perfectly. When it was time to sit down at our sweetheart table, they had our favorite drinks and a plate of h'orderves waiting for us. Even though it was a buffet dinner, Theresa made us both plates and brought them to our table. They used the aqua colored napkins I had picked out on their trays when they were picking up plates and drinks. It's the little touches that really made me impressed. And the food was amazing!! We had tropical h'orderves and for dinner we had tuscan chicken, captain morgan beef, a pasta dish, grilled vegetables, salad... it was all amazing and our guests were really surprised at how good it was (you know, for "wedding food"). If I had to plan another event for some reason, I would not hesitate to have them cater again! I wish I could work with them again.

Big City was a pleasure to work with. They accommodated all of my daughter's menu wishes in a professional and helpful manner. They visited the venue twice in anticipation of the event (since they were unfamiliar with the location). They provided ample staff, and every single one was polite, attentive, and gracious! And to top it all off, the food was delicious. Quite a feat when serving 250! Thanks to everyone at Big City for making my daughter's wedding a wonderful event to remember.

Words fail to convey my absolute LOVE of Big City's delicious food, amazing staff, and all-around superior service. I have worked in the event industry for many years, in many states, and these folks blew me away. They treat everyone like their special event is the company's only event, and no detail is overlooked. It's rare to find such outstanding service AND food at such an affordable price.

You do not need to look further for a catering service than Big City catering. The food was fantastic (we even received the leftovers). The staff were friendly, professional and provided great service. This was our daughter's wedding and we wanted everything to be perfect. Well, that is what is was with Big City Catering. You cannot go wrong using their service. I think the service I most appreciated was their responsiveness to all guests and their overall positive attitude. When people do work they enjoy it shows. Thanks from the mother of the bride!

Big City Catering is a MUST have vendor! From the very beginning, Kristina put our nerves at ease by answering countless questions and providing excellent customer service. We knew right away we were in great hands! On the days leading up to our wedding, we needed to address a cocktail hour back up plan due to forecasted weather. Kristina, Tracy, and the staff went over all the new details of our day allowing us to finalize the new back up changes in case of the weather. Long story short, the thunderstorms did come and the team of BC moved so quickly and effortlessly that guests were unaware that there was a last minute change. Everything was taken care of by the staff and we were never bothered by the last minute changes. By putting my trust into their team allowed me to truly enjoy my wedding day which is a priceless gift a vendor can provide. The food was all cooked perfectly and all tasted great! We are still getting compliments! The staff was there every step of the way providing top notch service. Big City is a vendor you must have! Book with zero hesitation as I assure you between the staff, the service, and the food you will have a perfect day you can truly enjoy from start to finish!

Big City Catering is the premier company to use for your wedding! We contacted them 1 month before our big day feeling very overwhelmed with worries and stress due to us waiting till the last minute. The team at Big City Catering put our minds to rest from the very first time we spoke. They catered a beautiful family style reception but that is only half of our Big City Catering experience! This one stop shop company also provided us with one of their key staff members who successfully planned/coordinated the entire day from start to finish. They referred and managed ALL vendors(both internal and external) along with providing a professional server and bartender staff. Our guests were very impressed with Big City Catering, and we recommend them highly and without hesitation.

There’s always so much going on during the ceremony and reception that it’s hard to just stop and enjoy the day. Not so with Big City Catering— their team truly took a load off my husband and I’s shoulders by taking care of our every need.

For our wedding we were limited to what caterers we could use by the venue, no matter all were good, but one was great. Big City provides you with a level of service that would make you feel like a celeb or VIP. From Kristina taking the time to answer questions or help us think of all the questions you can't, to the tasting where Chef Thomas walked us thru the different or courses and dishes we selected to taste (felt like I was a judge on Top Chef), and to the night of the event when hors d'oeuvres were brought to us while we took formals and our personal drink choices were brought to us right after so we could relax. Tracy and her staff made the night run smooth, Kristina made sure what we wanted was what we got, James and his colleague manning the bars made sure the drink kept running, and Chef Thomas made sure the food was memorable to all. If you want a place whose service, quality, and attention to detail far exceeds the price you're paying then Big City is definitely for you.

For our wedding we were limited to what caterers we could use by the venue, no matter all were good, but one was great. Big City provides you with a level of service that would make you feel like a celeb or VIP. From Kristina taking the time to answer questions or help us think of all the questions you can't, to the tasting where Chef Thomas walked us thru the different or courses and dishes we selected to taste (felt like I was a judge on Top Chef), and to the night of the event when hors d'oeuvres were brought to us while we took formals and our personal drink choices were brought to us right after so we could relax. Tracy and her staff made the night run smooth, Kristina made sure what we wanted was what we got, James and his colleague manning the bars made sure the drink kept running, and Chef Thomas made sure the food was memorable to all. If you want a place whose service, quality, and attention to detail far exceeds the price you're paying then Big City is definitely for you. I guarantee months later your family's and friends mouths will start to water every time they think back to your special night. Read less

From inception to completion, Big City came through. From a delightful tasting to choosing the hors d'oeuvres, bar items, entrees and table linens, Tracy and Gina were at the top of their game.

The overall ambiance of the wedding was completed by their complete attention to detail,their accomodating and professional staff and the stellar food quality of the menu we chose (Prime Rib and Tuscan Chicken) Would highly recommend to anyone looking to have an affair they don't have to worry about. 5 stars.

Wow! I could not say enough great things about Big City! The food looked fabulous and tasted delicious and the service was above and beyond. Thank you so much!!! I was surprised on our wedding day when they brought my husband and I a tray of all our pre-reception hors d'oeuvres. I didn't think we would get any because we were busy taking pictures during cocktail hour. They were so attentive to us and our guest. We couldn't be more pleased. Thank you especially to Gina and Tracy!

Big City was great to work with! Everyone enjoyed the food. It was delicious! We planned a buffet and everything went smoothly. They even served us so we had more time to spend with our guests. We also, weren't expecting a cold night, until we checked the weather the day before and we were able to easily add heaters to our reception. Everyone was very appreciative. Bar staff and waiters were great. They were able to smoothly transition form our cocktail hour to the reception area quickly. Thanks!

Big City was absolutely the best to work with. The Staff were polite and "present but absent"....meaning they seamlessly appeared when needed and disappeared when not. The food profile was surprisingly tintillating to the palate. Being from the Carribbean, I totally expected bland food but was pleasantly surprised.
Kristina was attentive, professional, friendly and totally responsive. Intially I had planned to only use Big City for a small portion of my buffet, However, whilst working with Kristina I became convinced to hand all the proceeding to her care and that was not because she was pushy, but because she cared and that came through.
I am super critical (not a trait I am proud of), so when I tell you the experience was over the moon, take my word for it. I entertain often, and I am considering using Big City for some of my more intimate gatherings.

Big City was the caterer that 'came with' my venue, Cypress Grove Estate House. At first I was nervous, but since my husband and I were using a rarely-used Southern Menu, they allowed us to come for a private tasting at the Big City office. Tracy and the Chef were absolutely WONDERFUL in all they did. We asked for small changes to the dishes we liked best, and the Chef was very gracious in making the changes we requested. He also make a point to come out during the dinner at the wedding to make sure that we were happy with everything. Tracy was absolutely fantastic in the pre-planning stages, as well as on day-of. The attention to detail was phenomenal, and my husband told me to make sure that I mentioned her in the review. I also wanted to brag on the bartender, James, who seemed to get everyone's drink orders memorized by the end of the night. He was so incredibly kind, but he was extremely attentive. I had a small group (about 40 attendees), and I received rave reviews about him from all my friends once back from the honeymoon. I received MANY compliments on the food, the service, and the entire staff. Couldn't have asked for better AT ALL.

Big city is not only a catering company! They can do it all! when my husband and I got married this year we had a hard time finding a catering company that we really liked.we had friends of ours last year that used big city as a catering company so we decided to check them out. We arrived at the office and there was a sign that read " welcome to the soon to be bride and groom Kevin and Jamie". needless to say we thought that was so cute.we met with a woman named Gina. She was outstanding! Big city really helps ease your mind when it comes to planning your wedding! The day of the event Tracy was the one who set up and coordinated the evening. She took alllll of the weight off my shoulders, by helping set up not only the ceremony room cocktail hour and reception, but she went above and beyond and set up all the little nic-nacs I had brought/made for the weddig as well! They made sure that they treated our family and friends with the upmost respect and care. They made sure that my husband and I ate first amd gave us the rest o the food to take home (and the food was too die for delish!!)so I your lookimg for an affordable, classy, well organized, flexible, catering company then look no further!

Brittney and Tracy were just amazing!

We told them our budget and ideas and they put together a package that was exceptional. It far exceeded our expectations. Nothing was too much trouble or a bother to them. We live in NJ and this wedding was a breeze to plan with Big City Catering.
I can't say enough about how all the vendors they used such as florist, DJ, and officiant were also superb. The food was delicious, and all our guest enjoyed every bite! If you are doing an event in Florida, you must call them. You won't find anyone better!

The staff at Big City were great! I was sold when we went for the tasting. The coordinator at the time was awesome and made us feel extremely comfortable and confident in our decision. Although the coordinator left shortly after we signed our contract, the transition to her replacement was smooth. Everything the day of turned out perfect and our guests raved about the food for days! The wait staff was great at cleanup...a little to great at that. I had several people mention their plates and cups had been removed before they were done, but I guess I'd rather have someone too quick to cleanup then too slow. Besides that, I heard nothing but compliments!

Having a smaller more intimate wedding can be hard when it comes to planning (your wedding isn't big enough) but Brittney did a great job making our day exactly what we wanted! She kept everything on time and organized! She was always very quick to respond to emails which made planning that much easier for me! The food was amazing, they even went out of the way to alter a recipe to be gluten free for the groom!! The whole staff was awesome, if you want a stress free day filled with delicious food then book Big City for your wedding!!

As the mom of the bride, I can honestly say this caterer did most of the work for us :) We called a few others before settling on Big City due to their professional but warm attitude. And are we happy we did!. Planning was simple, they offered various price ranges and menu choices, sampling and the final decisions as to linens and such went so smoothly I was worried things were going too well! But the day of the wedding was spectacular-service was attentive, but not hovering; warm, yet professional, and the food was all we had hoped for-set up was beautiful. The tables looked just as we imagined. It let my daughter and I truly enjoy her day-we did not have to lift a finger or do a thing. Cannot say how pleased I was with this vendor. Brittney was a blessing. I would not hesitate to recommend or use again.

I loved this company because it had unique choices for food that I had not been able to find elsewhere. The staff was amazing in working with us in getting in to taste and finalize plans. And the day of the wedding they made sure everything ran smoothly, not only the food but helping out with many other things as well. Not only that but the food was amazing!!!

We worked with Brittney from Big City Catering and it was an amazing experience. She was so much more than a caterer! A week before our wedding we were having problems getting in touch with our venue and she offered to bring any items we needed and even found us a last minute wedding coordinator! Everyone at the wedding loved the food and service! Big City is a great company if you are looking for individualized attention and and awesome food! The stuffed mushrooms are INCREDIBLE!!!!!!

We looked at 3 different caterers for our wedding reception, but as soon as we met with Big City Catering we knew they were our choice. Shannon is amazing- she gets the job done no matter what! She always responded to e-mails and phone calls quickly, and was very flexible with us. She was very honest when we asked if she thought we needed certain things (like a plated salad waiting for our guests that would cost more), so when she did give her opinion on things she thought were worth the money we took her suggestions seriously. She is great at knowing what you as a couple want and caters to that as opposed to trying to get you to spend as much money as possible.
When we went to our tasting the chef himself served us the food. Which I was surprised by and found very refreshing. They are a down to earth and warm staff. At our wedding, we received so many compliments about Big City's efficient and friendly staff and the AMAZING food they served! Water glasses never went empty and the bartenders were great! As the newly married couple, we didn't raise a finger and any requests we made were gladly and speedily met. We picked a couple items that some of our guests typically don't eat, such as Israeli couscous and eggplant rollatini, and those were the most raved about items. Items on the buffet line never ran out and we even had a couple guests trying to figure out the recipe for the sauce that accompanied the grilled vegetables! One guest said when she'd finished she was totally satisfied and didn't feel bogged down and sluggish. Several guests confessed to getting seconds and everyone we talked to said everything they ate was delicious!
There are many times Big City came to our rescue during the planning process and every suggestion for other vendors they gave turned out amazing. I could go on and on about how great they are, but the bottom line is that they get the job done efficiently, professionally and deliciously! They were worth EVERY SINGLE PENNY AND MORE that we paid, and we will send everyone we know to them! If ever we need a caterer again they will be who we go to.

Shannon was fabulous! We absolutely loved her and she gave great referrals and suggestions! I was amazed at how beautiful everything looked! It was all so organized! Between her, my fabulous DJ, and my wedding coordinator, I didn't have to think about anything on the wedding day! We didn't even have to get our own food. (If only we could've had a chance to eat more of it!) My only complaint on the day, and I[m not even sure who to blame for it, was that we had a wedding cake that had 5 tiers and each tier was a different flavor.. Shannon had said that the whole cake would be cut up, but we ended up with not as many people as the cake was planned for, so they only cut into 2 of the tiers.. SO, only 2 of the 5 flavors were served.. I had envisioned everyone having a choice of what flavor they wanted with the whole cake being cut up.. And of coarse I didn't notice since we were wisked away after the cake cutting to do some more photos.. The cake was also handed out, not letting people come up and choose the flavor that they wanted.. (I cringe when I think about all of that penaut butter cake being forced on people!!! Not sure why the cake was passed out when the rest of the dinner had been buffet style..) So, we wasted a bunch of $$ on the cake that we then ended up throwing away since we were leaving for the honeymoon.. and I was left with a cringing feeling every time I think about what people thought when they were served peanut butter cake.. Again, I'm not sure if this was a miscommunication between my wedding coordinator and the caterer, but SOMEONE should have known to cut the whole cake since it was all different flavors. When they cut into the 2nd tier and it was a different flavor than was already passed out and a different flavor than we had done our cake cutting into the staff should've at least figured it out then! But, everything else was AMAZING and I would choose Shannon and her team all over again!

Big City Catering responded with the following comments:

We cannot apologize enough for you being disappointed about this! Although we knew that there were different flavors in each tier, we always cut and serve the cake to the guests. When we have put it on a table for them to take their own, often times, they never see it and it doesn't get eaten. With that being said, we will be 100% sure to go over this with all of our future clients to make sure that this does not happen again. I'm glad that the rest of the day was a smashing success and we truly appreciate the honest feedback!

Big City Catering was the best choice we could have made for our caterer and ball room decorator. The food was absolutely delicious and the room looked stunning. Shannon (the coordinator) was able to make our dream wedding come true. She was able to meet both our wants and needs while keeping us on budget. Months after the wedding, our guests are still giving us complements on how great everything looked, how amazing the food tasted, and how much fun they had. Most of all Big City Catering was able to provide us piece of mind when my fiance and I needed it most. I would definitely recommend them to anyone!

The food that Big City Catering provided during our wedding was excellent. I received multiple compliments from guests throughout the night. The entire planning process was a breeze with them. Their coordinator (Shannon) used to be a wedding planner up north and knows everything about weddings and will give you great tips. The food during our tasting was amazing and the entire staff made us feel welcome and did not pressure us to pick them at all. They were quick to respond to all the questions/concerns I had withing 24 hours and very professional. The night of our wedding they arrived on time and were very attentive. Shannon and her team executed my vision and made it the most memorable night of my life. I could not be happier!!!

From the first meeting with Shannon and Brittney ,my planners, I had confidence this day would be perfect. Both were the most knowledgeable, enthusiastic and helpful team one could wish for. Shannon was very reliable and always helpful for my menue changes and imput. I again say everything was perfect, food, rentals, colors, ideas, everythinbg. She got back with me always on a timely basis. The wedding day crew from set up to take down was extremely pleasant and professional. Brittney was so organized with every detail. I did not have to do anything except enjoy the day! I did not even have to pick up one cup and my house was left spotless! I will and have already referred their name to as many people I can. I will certainly use them as my only choice! Thanks again for everything!

Shannon and Big City were absolutely amazing and made the whole planning process and wedding easy, flawless, stress free, and simply the best day of my life. Aside from the absolutely delicious food and drinks the people at Big City did anything and everything to make the night perfect. I did not have a planner and did everything myself. I would not have been able to do it all without the help and guidance of Shannon. She ran the night without a hitch. Big City was a preferred vendor for my venue but when looking at their site I thought that I would not be able to have them because they looked too expensive for my budget. I finally decided that I would just email and see if they could work within the budget and we got more than expected. There was not one thing that I could possibly complain about and if anything was not exactly how it should be Shannon was quick to fix it without me even having to worry about anything. I truly can't say enough good things about this company and Shannon and they will be the only catering company I use and recommend from now on!

Shannon and the Big City team were very professional and very helpful throughout the planning process. Shannon was very flexible and was able to create a meal that met our vision and was within our budget, which was very tight. We had so many compliments on the food and the friendliness of the bartender from the guests.

Shannon was very responsive to my emails and eager to help out any way she could. She definitely went above and beyond what my husband and I expected from her. She treated us like old friends, and on the day of the wedding, acted like a stand in day of coordinator. She told us that she might be doing this since her staff could take care of themselves and she wanted to help out wherever she could, but I don't think my parents or I were prepared as to just how attentive she would be! The first time my photographer saw Shannon in action, she asked if Shannon was my coordinator and was shocked when my response was "No, my caterer!".

I would recommend Shannon and the Big City team in a heartbeat to anyone! It was such a joy to work with them.

I am a former event planner and a self-proclaimed “foodie.” I am time focused and quite detail oriented. Plus, I was paying for the wedding from my life savings. Therefore, my expectations for a wedding caterer were very high.
Big City Catering was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding day! Their team went above and beyond the duties of a typical caterer. They not only provided delicious food for my cocktail and dinner reception, but also acted as my event manager.

Big City was a big help in the planning stages of my wedding. They recommended vendors to accommodate my specific needs. They gave me smart ideas on ways to save money and consolidate my wedding spending. The relationship that I built with the staff of Big City gave me the confidence that I could trust them to provide quality food, service and a worry-free wedding day.

The team did a fantastic job at sticking to my “time line” and kept my wedding organized. They spotted potential issues and fixed them before I even noticed. My wedding was truly stress-free, and a big reason was because of Big City. They were at my side from literally holding my hand before I walked down the aisle to packing my car at the end of the event. They also worked well with my other vendors.

I was very happy with the food at my wedding. The presentation was very detail oriented and my specific tastes were met. I had a buffet-style dinner at my reception, and the chicken and beef roast was moist and flavorful. My guests enjoyed the food, and I was excited to take home leftovers.

I am very impressed with the quality of service from Big City. I would highly recommend them to every bride! They will make your wedding day easier, stress-free and provide quality service and food.

Big City is AWESOME! My partner and I decided to go with them after having a tasting with only one other company. We ended up signing a contract the day of our tasting with Big City, and at that moment, Shannon took this happily enGAYged couple under her wings. I do have to admit, at first, we were a little taken aback with the price, but now that the whole ceremony is finished, I know that Big City and the service, food, and advice that we received is far more valuable than what we paid! Shannon and Brittney were always amazingly professional and knowledgeable, and are more than willing to help in any way possible.

Even now, 2 months after our ceremony, I am still hearing about the food and how amazing it was! The company definitely knows food and serving large numbers, and the girls (Shannon & Brittney) definitely know how to please! Thank you for making our big day everything we wanted!!!

I am so glad that we ended up going with Big City Catering!!! When we were looking around for caterers, Big City was about the 5th one we met with. Immediately after our first meeting with Shannon, I knew that I wanted her to be a part of our special day. I feel like their pricing was very reasonable for all that we got. It was nice to have everything included in the packaging (food, linens, glassware, bar, etc...Shannon even let us rent votives and vases for our centerpieces).
When I walked into the ballroom on my wedding day, I was blown away by how amazing everything looked. It was more than I expected and couldn't be happier with the way everything turned out. Most importantly, the food was INCREDIBLE. The bartenders were fast...everything about it was awesome. Thanks Shannon and the Big City team :)

We worked with Shannon from Big City to personalize our wedding menue. Not only was the food excellent, but since they actually make their own food they were able to cook around my soy-allergy.

My Fiance and I wanted to have traditional German food served at our wedding, and Big City did an amazing job. Some of my family flew in for the wedding from Germany, and they even raved about the quality of food. It's been a month since our wedding and we're still receiving compliments on our food. I've never been at a wedding where I went back for seconds until ours.

Big City surpassed all of my expectations, and Shannon was such a big help with little things along the way. I highly sugest to any bride that's looking for a reliable friendly caterer to check out Big City. It was well worth the peace of mind knowing that I could eat my food, and that my family would love it.

Shannon with Big City Catering is FABULOUS!!! She is more than just a caterer. She was sooooo helpful in assisting with finding different vendors and smoothing out the rough patches. I lost my officiant less than 2 weeks before my wedding and she had a contact who was willing to perform the ceremony at a discounted price in less than 2 hours! (I had emailed her after business hours as well). The food is AMAZING too. Our guests raved about the Artichoke Spinach Fonduta and the Crispy Cheesy Puffs. Everything was absolutely wonderful and I would absolutely recommend them over and over again. BTW I also had a consultation with Arthur's Catering and was not impressed with their customer service. The consultant told me he would get back to me with a quote in a week and I never heard any response. I felt that my 100 person wedding wasn't "big" enough for them. :-( But I am so glad they never responded because Big City Catering was WONDEFUL!!!! :-)

where do I begin? My wedding was amazing and magical. Shannon was amazing,flexiable and cared only about our happiness. The prices we amazing for the food quality, services, flowers, linens etc etc. It was the best one stop shop ever! Pay one price and your all set! No words could really describe how happy they made our day! We were pampered and she stayed for our wedding etc and coordinated everything and made sure all went perfect. For example... Someone stepped on my daughters flower girl dress and ripped it down and she was so upset. I was in middle of after wedding pics and Shannon had it all fixed in the blink of an eye. I never got to tell her how much that meant and made my wedding worry free in many ways. I could go on and on... But you have to experience it for yourself. They care about everyone in your family and your day being perfect and elegant and just how you imagined! Thank you sooooo much! We love you Shannon! Angel and Tim Richardson

Wow, where do I start? I worked with Shannon from start to finish and she exceeded beyond my expectations from a catering event manager. From the first phone call, which lasted 45 mins, I was impressed with her knowledge and experience with weddings. After tasting BIG CITY's food and talking in person we knew BIG CITY was the team for us! Shannon acts more as a wedding coorindator giving you vendor recommendations and will answer any questions asked with GREAT advice. I was having trouble getting in contact with one of my vendors for over a month, she made one phone call and within five mins had a response from this vendor, just one example of how she goes above and beyond. My experience with BIG CITY did not just impress my groom and I; EVERYONE at my wedding raved about the food and the service provided to them. The wait staff was very prompt and made sure everyone had enough to eat. Tom executed our sparkler exit very well! Our dream wedding became reality, not only because of starting our life together, but because BIG CITY did such an incredible job! My groom and I will use them again for anniversary parties, holiday parties, etc. BIG CITY is the best hands down!!

Big City Catering was/is the best! I had them cater my wedding at a private home with approximately 55 people. Shannon and her team handled the planning with such professionalism and care. The choices of foods were unlimited and they were not hesitant to be creative. They also allowed you to try the foods before finalizing your order. Shannon had great listening and follow-up skills. She too would share with you her opinions and advices to help you decide more effectively. The chef at Big City knows exactly what he is doing, as the food has great seasoning and taste. The food is not bland and you can actually taste the different ingredients in your meal. The portions are also generous. The day of the wedding I had Shannon and her teams help setup and stay throughout the reception. Shannon was truly amazing! Without her and her team my wedding would not have been on track and as organized. Because of their dedication and hard work the wedding was truly a success. Everyone enjoyed the food and the flow of the event. Shannon went over and beyond with her service as she was a friend and confidant. I thank Shannon and her team for everything!!! I am so happy I went with Big City Caterers. I will definitely send business their way.

Our initial consultation was a hit - Shannon asked great questions and really wanted to work WITH us, which I loved. The tasting sealed the deal - the food was absolutely delicious! I spent the majority of the year leading up to the wedding overseas - Shannon was incredibly flexible/understanding and worked with me to make sure our food selections were perfect. Not only that, she helped me plan our centerpieces and favors - she truly goes above and beyond.

I work in the food industry and it takes a huge leap to exceed my expectations... Team Big City is the New Gold Standard for catering.

Seriously can not believe how amazing and D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S and "put together" our wedding was. If I had some sort of magical time machine, and had the opportunity to go back and change something, I would not change a thing. Our guests are still RAVING about how amazing everything was. Seriously...it's been about a month ago...and people are still talking. They brought tears to my eyes...I would recomend BIG CITY to anyone who is need of a 5 STAR caterering service!

Shanon and everyone from Big City catering were amazing to work with for our wedding. From our first meeting (conducted WAY after hours to accommodate our schedules), through every step of the planning process, to the day of and even after the event, they have provided some of the best customer service and thoroughness that I have ever experienced.

Shannon, Tom and the entire Big City team were wonderful to work with. All of my guests raved about the food. The servers and the bartenders were friendly and extremely efficient. I would definitely recommend them to anyone whether you are on a tight budget or not, they will work with you to create a fantastic menu. If I ever have to plan any type of party/event in Orlando I would use them in a heartbeat.

Shannon and Big City Catering were awesome. We had a family loss just a few months before the wedding and Shannon really took over and went above and beyond. Without her help, our wedding would not have turned out as beautifully as it did. The food and decorations were amazing, everything looked perfect. I would highly recommend this company.

Big City Catered my Wedding and what an incredible job they did!!! Shannon did an amazing job, girl works her butt off so you don't have to worry about ANYTHING! I was so happy with the service I got with them I will never use or refer anyone else.

Not to mention there food is GREAT!!! Wedding food can often be mediocre because of the sheer amount that is being served. This is not the case with Big City Catering. The food was delicious and we got sooo many comments on how great it was! I've had there food before and they did not disappoint!

I just can't tell you how happy I am with them... They really made everything so easy and nice. It's REALLY hard being a Bride. It was so refreshing to have someone in charge and handling things so you don't have to worry about anything but the one thing you're there for, your marriage and celebration with the people you love.

Thanks so much to Shannon and the whole Big City Catering team!! Thank you for making our day memorable and awesome! You're the Best!

Hi Shannon! We just got back late last night from our honeymoon. Thank you so much for everything! My wedding was flawless and I wouldn't change anything! The food was amazing and everyone kept saying it was the best "wedding food" they've ever had. Thank God my mom boxed some food up for us and brought it to our hotel room because I wasn't hungry at the wedding. I have a friend that is from the bahamas and she said that the conch fritters were awesome so you know they had to be really good :-) So thank you for making my wedding so memorable and I will definitely keep you in mind for our next catering event!

You're Awesome!!

Brides & Grooms will FINALLY! eat at their wedding reception thanks to the staff and service of Big City Catering. Not only do they have great tasting food but it's displayed beautifully too. Another bonus: When you work with Shannon at Big City Catering, it's like getting an additional wedding planner! Amazing amazing resource for all the extras we needed (flower, ice sculpture, linens). It was such a great joy working with her over the last year!

During the planning process of our wedding, we interviewed three catering companies. We decided to go with Big City Catering for two reasons. One, was the price. As a bride on a tight budget, Big City offered more services, food, and rentals for about $1200 less than the other two companies. And two, we loved the people who would be helping set-up and manage the catering services on the big day. Seriously, it was like having a wedding planner there to coordinate everything! Shannon Tarrant was our event coordinator that day, and she was awesome! I honestly didn't have ONE thing go wrong!

Big City catered our wedding on March 7, 2010. When we did the food tasting a few months before I was unable to eat anything due to some pre-wedding dental work. So my husband had to pick all the food. We didn't actually eat at the wedding (there was just so much going on), but we did take the left-overs on our honeymoon, and they were delicious. We had people calling us for a week afterwards raving about the food. Our wedding was a huge success, everything we had ever dreamed of and big city had a lot to do with it. We did a wedding package through Big City and Shannon was our wedding planner. She did a terrific job setting us up with fantastic vendors and was always there to calm my nerves. We would highly recommend Big City to anyone planning a wedding!

Big City Catering provided catering and day-of coordination for my wedding at Paradise Cove in February 2010. Shannon was so helpful throughout the entire process and really made us feel like we were her #1 priority. She was available at any time to answer any questions we had. My husband and I especially liked that they gave us a personal tasting featuring the food we were considering for the menu, while many of the other companies we talked to only provided group tastings.

As far as cost goes, I would say they are in the mid-range. However, they are very accomodating to your budgetary needs. We let Shannon know at the beginning what we were able to spend and she made sure that we got the most for our money.

Best of all, the food was AMAZING! Everyone after the wedding kept telling me that the food was the best part, definitely better than other weddings they had been too.

I have to say that Big City Catering provides the right combination of great service and fantastic food. Isn't that exactly what you want from a caterer?

Literally, I HATE spinach and I've never had artichoke to my knowledge and they were to die for! I'm not from their area or I'd be up at their store (assuming they have a store) to buy those by the truck load.

Why can't I give them 6 out of 5 stars????

Shannon, the servers, and interns were completely awesome on our wedding day. They went above and beyond what they were required to do. One of the servers even tied my dad's tie for him so my dad wouldn't have to fuss with it.

When we first started looking for a caterer for our wedding six months ago, Shannon was both the first to respond to our email as well as the most friendly. Big City worked with our (smallish) budget, and still managed to give us serious bang for our buck.

Every single thing I ate at my wedding was delicious. The crepes, though, drew RAVE reviews from all of the guests... people are still talking about them, days later. The displays were absolutely beautiful, too. Everything looked appetizing and was artfully displayed.

I seriously can't say enough good things about Big City Catering. I would recommend them to any future bride without hesitation or reservation.

She was in a sense like my own Wedding Planner. She helped in many of my decisions and introduced me to many other vendors who also did a wonderful job at my wedding. Not only is there food exceptional but they also care about all the other aspects of your wedding. Thank you Shannon and Big City for making my wedding wonderful. =)

Big City Catering and specifically Shannon Tarrant did an absolutely amazing job. Not only did they handle every aspect of our wedding through their full package, the personal touch made them seem more like a family than a vendor. We were blown away at the attention to detail and the food quality. We couldn’t have imagined this day go any better.
If you are deciding among a multitude of vendors as we were, do yourself a favor and give this outstanding organization an opportunity to give you an amazing event. We love you guys!

Not only did they handle every aspect of our wedding through their full package, the personal touch made them seem more like a family than a vendor. We were blown away at the attention to detail and the food quality. We couldn’t have imagined this day go any better.
If you are deciding among a multitude of vendors as we were, do yourself a favor and give this outstanding organization an opportunity to give you an amazing event. We love you guys! Read less

Big City was amazing! I'd highly recommend their services for catering and wedding planning. They are organized, flexible and very easy to work with. Their staff is friendly and on top of their game. The food was delicious and looked beautiful. They were also able to offer great recommendations on other vendors.

For a father, there's enough to deal with when your daughter gets married. But Big City made everything special, perfect and easy. The personnel, incredible, the food, spectacular, the service, extraordinary. There wasn't one hiccup and if there was, no one saw it. They love what they do, and it shows...people have been talking about the food and the event ever since...They are the Best at what they do and exceeded expectations at every point. Bravo!

My first contact with Big City was a recommendation from my future sister in law.
After contacting the company, I was immediatly contacted by Shannon. Her phone manner was extremely polite, professional, calming and helpful.
Shannon and I set up a dinner appointment after corresponding via email for a several days.
We hit it off immediately and I knew there was no one else I wanted to handle my wedding.
We set up a tasting with my possible menu and my parents and I loved the food. My mother is extremely picky and was very impressed with the presentation, appearance and taste of the food.
Shannon was working another wedding that day so she was unable to work my event. She set me up with her intern, Callie and also informed me that Tom, the Owner, would be at my wedding.
From then on, my meetings and all contact was with Shannon and Callie. Callie was exceptional to work with. She's extremely patient, easy- going, an excellent listener and pays attention to detail.
She was the 'Day of' Coordinator at my wedding and handled every detail to perfection.
The food was exceptional. We had a buffet style dinner. There were some extremely picky, hard-to-please people at our wedding and they LOVED the food. In fact, my mother says it's something she keeps hearing from our relatives!
In additon, the wait staff and bartenders were professional and courteous. My guests loved everything and everyone.
The tables were set exactly as planned and everything looked wonderful.
I look forward to working with Big City in the future and will highly recommend them to anyone.

Big City was very accomodating and responsive to our questions. We must've emailed them with questions asking to see the final quote about 30 different ways (champagne toast vs no toast, sirloin vs salmon, cheese tray vs fruit tray, bar vs wine/beer only vs no bar, etc.) each time Shannon replied promptly with an accurate and revised quote. This was super helpful in planning our budget.
The day of the wedding everything was set up and I didn't have to worry about a thing. Guests are still telling me how it was really good food; even the best wedding food they've ever had. We also used Big City for a cake referral and they handled the cake contract, delivery etc as well.

I loved working with Big City for my wedding! Shannon helped me so much and gave me so many tips for things I never would have thought of until it was too late. The only downside was that my husband was really looking forward to the Philly Cheese Potato bites during cocktail hour and our guests gobbled them up before Shannon could put some aside for us. :)

Big City Catering responded with the following comments:

It's easy to prep and be ready for a hungry crowd, but their guests ate food at cocktail hour like they had never seen any before. For future events, all items will be put aside for the bride and groom BEFORE their guests get to them! Thanks for the great review!

Shannon and Tom were great to work with. They did their best to help me stay on budget and the food selection was terrific. I primarily communicated with Shannon via e-mail because I knew she was super busy with other brides. I could rest assured that if I send her a message, I would hear from her within a few days. She set realistic expectations for me and was very upfront about what was and wans't possible. At the event, Shannon headed out early, but the waitstaff was very courteous and helpful throughout the night and even after the event. The event looked great and people continue to compliment the food. Highly recommended.

The food was delicious- I heard about how good it was all night long and well long after. Their staff was excellent. It was one of the best vendors we worked with throughout the wedding process; they offer quality service and genuine care about your special day! I cannot stop recommending them to everyone, even those not getting married yet :)

Though we did not technically get to "choose" Big City Catering (because they are the designated caterer for our wedding venue), we were very pleased with the quality and taste of the food, as well as the organization, professionalism and hard work of their staff. We used a buffet style set-up for out wedding and their was certainly plenty of food, the display was very elegant and all of the food stayed hot. The catering staff was also very helpful in making sure we, as bride and groom, got enough to eat and drink and were diligent in waiting on our guests, even though it was buffet style. The only set-back we noticed is that they make a lot of their more popular dishes "upgrades" that end up costing quite a bit more than their standard dishes. In addition, we had wanted to add an extra appetizer and entre to our package but the extra price per person was so much that we had to hold back. Besides the extra pricing, no complaints!

Overall our wedding day went perfect! I was a little apprehensive about that fact that the venue we selected only allowed one exclusive caterer, however I was pleasantly surprised in the end. We had an excellent tasting and the food quality was the same the day of. Many of our guests commented on how great the food was. We didn't have the budget to anything extremely elaborate, however I feel like what we were able to offer still included a nice variety and appealed to many pallets.

I had hired BC a year before my wedding, I was working with the most AMAZING person ever, Shannon T. She was amazing in helping me with everything that involved my wedding. I was planning my wedding in Jacksonville and she was great. She recommend other vendors as well and I was blown away with there performance as well. Sadly, 3 months before my wedding I found out that Shannon would no longer be doing my wedding an brought someone else in. This seriously broke my heart and was very angry, Shannon and I had more to go over and I wanted to pick her brain with more ideas, since she was amazing.
In the end, after all of that, it was time for my big day. The food was amazing and that was what we were looking forward to the most. Thank you to the chefs, it was amazing thank you.
The banquet staff was great as well, thank you for giving my hubby 2 plates of food- his fav was the mac n cheese- delish~

In the end everything was great in the end. Food was great and so was the service. I wish It could have been shared with Shannon, but I understand you had to do what you had to do.

AMAZING FOOD!

Wonderful! Promptly invited my husband and I to tastings with plenty of time to make food choices. Everything we tried was delicious, so it made our decision tough. Citrus glazed salmon was off the chain! We loved the Brie tartlets too. Also, we didn't go wrong with the mini crab cakes. And the southern cultivation salad! So many wonderful dishes. The staff was incredibly courteous and helpful. Great experience.

I would never have picked anyone else!

BigCity in general was terrific - the food was amazing, service was great, and they helped in any way they could to make the wedding go off without a hitch. Originally I was working with Shannon, and she was fantastic... but a few months before my wedding, she unfortunately left BigCity. Gina took over, and she was also great - very responsive and she was always quick to answer any questions I had. I didn't see her much on the day of the wedding, but I know she was out there setting up everything for the reception, and from what I can tell she did a wonderful job.

We did not have a choice with the catering company as our venue has a contract with Big City. We initially went to a group food tasting and were a little worried. The appetizers were fantastic but both myself and my fiance were not impressed with the main courses or sides. They weren't bad, just more so worth $15/head instead of the $60/head we were paying. However, after speaking with our event coordinator fo our venue, we learned that the foods we tasted at the group tasting were from the plated menu whereas we were having stations at our wedding. Our venue coordinated a private tasting with foods that we CHOSE to taste as opposed to the group tasting where you just tasted random foods that were luck of the draw. The private tasting was FABULOUS! I enjoyed all the foods I tasted at the private tasting. The food stations at our wedding turned out perfect! We had so many compliments on it being the best wedding food people ever had! The steak oscar and macaroni and cheese bar were a HUGE HUGE hit!

Before my wedding last August 2009 I did my homework... I spent a great deal of time interviewing several caterers in town (Puff-n-Stuff, Arthurs, John Michael, Cuisiniers, etc.) trying their food, and comparing their services and prices. I spoke to 8 different caterers... after all a wedding is such an important life event. I wanted a forever lasting memory of it for everyone involved. I chose Big City for several reasons... they were always responsive... very attentive, flexible and accomodating, their food was at par with other big caterers in town and price was competitive. Many of my guests made comments to me later (and they are brutally honest)... most of them were pleased with Big City's food and only one expressed that his steak was not medium but well, yet everyone agreed that flavors, presenatation and the people working the event were great. Unfortunately, I was not able to enjoy the food much myself... nerves. In a nutshell, I was happy with my choice and if I could do it all over again I will definitely contact Shannon at Big City again. For those brides to be outhere having fun planning their day, when you are doing your homework make sure you get to know your caterer well and that you are comfortable with everything and everyone working your event. If anyone reading this feedback would like to contact me, don't hesitate to ask Big City for my referral... my name is Angelica. Good luck ladies!!! :)

So many people called or emailed me to tell me how wonderful the food was at my wedding. I was too busy to eat much of it, but I was thrilled to learn that my guests were so happy. Big City was extremely attentive to all the guests and acted with extreme professionalism. This is a great company and they definitely know what they are doing.

Big City Catering was great! Shannon did our day-of-coordination and I think it was the best money we spent, it was nice not to have to worry about anything but being with family and friends those last few days. The food was awesome and people are still talking about it. All-in-all they were very accomodating and we did not feel like we were thought of as just another event for them.

Molly did a great job with us. We were here there and every where at times with ideas and she put up with it. We decided to go with a buffet style dinner as it was cheaper and less wasteful. All we heard was good things about the service and the food (too bad the hubby and I barely got a chance to eat any). If I could give any advice make sure you eat at your wedding or have someone (your mom, dad or bridesmaids) make you both a plate and pack up to go as it gets so hectic sometimes that you may not get a chance to eat. The only bad thing I would say had to do with the cake design. She never got back to us to ask how we would like our cake designed and so her baker made her own design and it was to say the least plain. Although it was plain in retrospect it was nice as it was simple but I still feel I would have liked a little more oomph. Even with the cake design not being exactly what I may have wanted the cake tasted GREAT which I believe is more important than how it looked, had a lot of compliments on the cake.

They were o.k.! The food was good but they some how got the groom's name wrong which made me upset especially since it was spelled out in our seating chart. They also got a special meal request mixed up for a guest that had food allergies which was also a little unsettling again because it was spelled out on the seating chart. I understand they are busy with multiple weddings/events on the weekends but for the price we pay you would think they could get the groom's name right and pay attention to the seating chart.
