I worked with Mia for my reception at the Biltmore Ballrooms. Mia was GREAT! Very responsive, personable, and professional. Since the wedding, we have gotten so so many compliments from all the guests about how great the food was. I have received several comments saying "That was the best wedding meal I have ever eaten". Highly recommend using Bold American for food!

WOW, YUM! Awesome service! Family and friends at our wedding were telling us all night (and in our guest book) that the food and service was fantastic! All staff we encountered were very friendly and professional (from the initial email contact form down to the day of... a span of about a year). Super responsive and quick on email replies from anything like what sides we could order, what drinks are served in the beer packages, to sending updated quotes with updated head counts... any question always answered thoroughly and quickly. The floral/decor department was also very easy to work with! The whole time I had diagrams, pictures, and notes on how the rooms would be set up and it was even prettier in person on the day of. I was blown away. They are so talented! So happy we decided to go with Bold! A friend who is a wedding photographer told us a few months before that she had photographed weddings where Bold was the caterer and said they were always on par... it was no different for our day. Very happy with Bold and would recommend to anyone!

My now husband and I had the pleasure of working with Nicki from Bold American. Since our wedding was at King Plow Arts Center we worked with Nicki for our catering and also the set up of our venue. Nicki was always able to answer our questions via email promptly. She was a pleasure to work with.

The food at our wedding was amazing. We had lots of guests tell us this as well. The night of our wedding, we had Sue from Bold who brought us into our own room while the cocktail hour was going on and brought us the appetizers being served. Then, during the reception, Sue made sure our glasses were always full and brought us food from all of our stations. At the end of the night, she even packed us a huge bag if leftovers, which we ate when we got back to our hotel. Sue was a delight and enabled us to get to talk to all of our guests without having to worry about anything.

The venue was a great reflection of my husband and i's personality. Nicki even threw in the lighting package for free, which was a nice surprise. We loved everything about the staff, location and food. It was a dream come true!!

Bold was our caterer and our guests said it was the best food they have had at a wedding! The food was just as good as our tasting and we had a hard time narrowing down the menu since there were so many good choices. The first thing I commented on when I walked into the reception was how good the food smelled. Our guests loved our southern stations and I'm so glad we had Bold cater our wedding!

AMAZING. I love Bold American Catering! Megan Wentz and Erin Moore could not have been more pleasant to work with. From the initial quotes and discussions, to the tastings, and ending with the night of- could not have been better. Their service was great and every detail I asked that they execute was done to perfection. And the food was every bit as amazing as I expected. Also, we were provided a VIP server to make sure that we had drinks and food throughout the night, including food to go for after the reception. Couldn't have been a better experience. Would highly recommend.

Bold American was fantastic Everyone LOVED the food and our guests still talk about it! We opted for a salmon station, southern sampling station (fried chicken, mac n cheese, fried green tomatoes) and a gourmet slider station. Our VIP server was beyond amazing. Every time we got back to our seats after being on the dance floor he had our plates re-filled, our drinks filled, and little bottles of water to keep us hydrated. He also did a great job packing up our "to go plates". We also LOVED our coordinator, Bryn, who went above and beyond to help us. She even took us out to South City Kitchen so we could meet her and get a feel for the food. That is true customer service! The only "negative" I can think of would be the price. Yes, Bold is pretty expensive and yes I'm sure you can find a caterer who is a lot cheaper. However, you truly do get what you paid for. I've been to way too many weddings where the food was awful and I barley ate. I ate at my own wedding and LOVED it. Thanks Bold and Bryn!

Bold American Catering is the only way to go when planning your wedding or special event!! I am still getting calls, texts and messages about how unbelievable the food at our Oct. 12th wedding was! The options are endless and the staff is impeccable. Nicki Collins is a sweetheart and so much fun to work with! From the beginning, she helped us choose the menu most fitting for our large wedding at Puritan Mill and was so quick to respond to all of our questions. Our initial visit went flawlessly and we never even had to meet with another caterer before deciding that Bold was the perfect fit! We attended a tasting open to new clients at first to get an idea of what we wanted and then as we got closer, they planned a private tasting that was so much fun! There were so many options and types of food that we had some very hard decisions to make. Nicki arranged a sit down tasting for us where the head chef conversed with us and described all the items we had chosen for our menu. The food is simply amazing!!! That was one of the most fun things we got to do with our family during the planning process and my fiancé Kaleb was one happy guy when we left the tasting! They customized a menu for us based on our guest size, venue and style of the event and we couldn't be happier with how our choices turned out. And the best part...they sent us off with 2 huge bags of food!! Our guests raved about the food all night long and we were so very pleased with how everything was executed. I highly recommend Nicki and the Bold Catering team…if you want an event to remember, book Bold!!

The food and presentation was incredible! Everyone specifically remarked on the gourmet fried chicken (which I was a bit hesitant about serving at my formal wedding). Bold was very professional and helpful in planning out our menu and suggesting food that would enhance the vision I had for the night. The only negative was that they were very expensive, however everything was incredible!

Meh. I am not as excited about my experience with Bold American as some of the other reviewers. I felt like I was subjected to a bit of bait-and-switch when they made promises before I submitted my deposit only to tell me "no we can't do that" after they had my deposit. The food was good, and several guests said so, but it was not presented in the same manner I had discussed with my event coordinator. I'm a big fan of most of the Fifth Group restaurants, but Bold American fell flat for me.

After meeting with several vendors, we decided on Bold American to provide catering for our daughter's wedding due to their professionalism, responsiveness, and being accommodating to our needs. Additionally, their prices were very reasonable for the excellent quality of food and top-notch service they provided. All of our guests had superlative comments on the food, from the hors d'oeuvres to the desserts, as well as the service. We will always reflect on my daughter's wedding with a full, content, and joyful heart and one of the reasons is because of Bold American!

More people complimented the food at our wedding than any other aspect. Most heard comment: "The best wedding food I've ever had!" What else needs to be said? Oh yeah, they worked with me to stay in my budget...that was the 2nd biggest thing for me. I was worried they would break our bank at first look at their prices but we worked with Nicki who did a great job of helping us pick food that would fit our range (and obviously was still delicious). They packed us a take-home bag at the end of the night for my groom and I to eat in the hotel room (including our cake!) and that was maybe the best part because we were starving. They also made sure we got appetizers and food by giving us our own VIP server. On top of all of that, my mother told me after the wedding that there was one server who identified her and my dad as the mother and father of the bride and made sure they got to try all of the appetizers and then took my elderly grandparents through the buffet line personally. She really went above and beyond what anyone expected. Also, Bold worked very hard to make an odd request that I had come to fruition (pie pops!). Great job all around and on top of all that, DELICIOUS!!!

We just loved working with her and the entire Bold team. Everyone absolutely loved the food. It was just what we were hoping for, and it was as delicious on the night of the wedding as it was when we had the tasting!

I don't know where to start with this review - in a great way!! Bold American has AMAZING food and exceptional service for guests. This was another area that our guests couldn't stop complimenting on.

We chose the Southern Buffet and I must say, that was a great choice. Quality, delicious, scrumptious food (shrimp & grits, fried chicken, mac & cheese....) and even better display. Having a food critic in my immediate family, it exceeded our expectations.

And Megan W., who is a sales rep there, is highly recommended!! She is amazing!!

If you're a foodie or have foodies in your wedding to impress, Bold American is the way to go in Atlanta! I have to admit, it was an easy choice for me since I love most of the Fifth Group restaurants, but Bold American really knocked it out of the park with everything from the communication with the sales rep Michelle to the final to go boxes we chowed down on that night after our wedding. Michelle was a pleasure to work with and incredibly responsive throughout the year.

The food is also out of this world for being produced for a large scale party. We had 3 food stations and they were all superb. The presentation, the quality of the food and the portion sizing for the price was amazing. When I was picking caterers, I was very particular about the opportunity to offer enough choices to give everyone at my wedding a choice. From the Southerners from my husband's side, to the Chinese grandma and family from my side who don't like dairy based meals, to the picky friends who only eat veggies or don't eat veggies at all, Bold had a menu that was able to make everyone more than happy and full. That was a huge plus for me. Moreover, I've had more than my share of guests telling me weeks, months, and even a year after the fact, that the food at my wedding was the best food they've had at a wedding hands down. Huge kudos to Bold!

The only thing I would have a minor complaint with would be the set up. We had a walk through with the Bold reps and had a diagram sketched out but somehow the tables were set up in the wrong places the night of. Not a huge deal, but really just the only thing I'd make sure someone was on top of day of the wedding.

Michelle and the staff at Bold American were wonderful to work with. No matter how many questions and requests you have, they aim to please! The service was great and the food was phenomenal!!!!! All of our guests were blown away by how delicious the food was in addition to the offerings. Most caterers want you to order what they have to offer and are not flexible. Bold American is the opposite - they were extremely flexible and accommodating to various needs such as gluten-free and vegetarian diets. If there's something you have in mind that you just have to have at your wedding, let them know and they'll try to make it happen for you! Their mini-desserts are also to die for!! Sure Bold American does not come cheap but the quality shows and it's worth every penny you spend.

The food was FANTASTIC - people are still talking about it. We did the fried chicken, collards, mac-n-cheese bar (gotta do it!), fried green tomatoes etc and it was WONDERFUL! It's def. pricey - so get ready for that. It's fun to have a server just for the bride and groom too! We actually got to eat the yummy food. There was a miscommunication between us, our sales coord. and the coord. from Bold American that was at the reception and it was about money - which is NOT something you want to talk about at your reception. Just make sure everyone is on the same page about the timeline and you'll be good to go! Very very very good food, the bar tenders were great and the service staff - they were AWESOME!!!!

Throughout the entire planning process, Nicki and Mia were both very responsive and such a pleasure to work with. For the big day, the service and food was amazing. All the guests complimented on how tasty the dinner was and how great the service was (we had about 170 guests). Bold also handled our rehearsal dinner at a private venue (King Plow) and it was amazing! I highly recommend working with this company - they are fairly priced, you can trust them and they are great quality!!

Bold American was a complete disappointment as a wedding caterer. Complete. I would like to say, first of all, that I did not come into this wedding with unrealistic expections. I understand that this is bulk catered food and will not be restaurant quality. That being said, the food provided by Bold American was a complete and utter disappointment and many of our guests commented negatively upon the quality of the food. We as a couple getting married were embarrassed, and I was embarrassed to hear that many of our guests went down the street after the wedding to grab an “actual meal”. Even we as the newlywed couple went to a hotel bar after OUR WEDDING to grab two hamburgers so we could have something decent to eat. We participated in Bold American’s tasting, which was a complete bait and switch and not representative of the low quality food we were presented at our wedding. We paid thousands of dollars to Bold American and could have had better food catered for 40% less. Bold American responded to the low quality product by giving us roughly a 15% discount on our expenditure, but we would have gladly paid that 15% to have had presentable, warm, fresh food at our wedding. The service team that they provided were professional and attentive, but could not overcome the food shortcomings. Here is the rundown:
-The appetizers were brutal. Greasy phyllo filled with mystery meat. Clammy spring rolls. Old endive.
-The main courses. A flaming shrimp station which was nothing that it was billed to be. Rather than plump shrimp kebabs with fresh vegetables and sauce, we got overcooked wrinkled bait shrimp, unrecognizable overcooked vegetables, NO SAUCE, served on a bed of plain white rice. Literally, each of our patrons got a miniature three inch kebab with two U50 shrimp on it on a full plate of plain unseasoned, undressed white rice.
-Flank steak. Overcooked, gray, ICE cold, with overcooked unseasoned ICE COLD vegetables. Do not let these people ruin your wedding.

Bold recently handled the catering for my wedding at Summerour Studio and I can only say good things! Amanda, my catering contact, helped to develop a diverse, yet regionally inspired menu consisting of a bountiful spread and several food stations that truly impressed myself (as well as my guests). In fact, I still dream about that deep fried turkey with the creole mustard... and the steak, the STEAK!! Served a perfect medium rare! Thank you!!! And, I would be remiss to not mention the "little plates" of GA mountain trout, with spinach and sweet potatoes, that wow-ed our guests from Miami and San Diego... all seafood snobs, too! We were so excited to show them what the South could truly offer! Also, Clare, who handled the decor and florals, also set the mood by creating a soft, romantic setting... with lights strung over the dance floor and tables sprinkled with candles and little glass vases with white flowers. Two thumbs up for the Bold American Team!

Perfect is the only way to describe our experience with Bold. And that's because that was what we received - perfection! Jacqui meet with me and we discussed what I wanted as far as food and price and she met our needs and wants and exceeded our exceed our expectations in every way. I changed my mind about the menu dozens (no, really) of times and she happily sent me a new, perfectly detailed proposal every time I though of something new. Most importantly, she got back to, within the hour, every single time I called or emailed with a question, idea or change. THIS IS CUSTOMER SERVICE!

With Bold you get TOP notch service through the whole process - menu planning, event design, tasting (OMG IT WAS GOOOOOD!) walk through at the venue, time line development, the event and break down. All included in the basic catering plan - no extra hidden charges here ladies!

And the food - people are still talking about how good it was! It was exactly what we wanted, down to the crunchy on the top mac n cheese. They worked to hard to make us happy! And no need to spend extra for buffet table decor - because Bold does it for you - free!

The price. It's not over the top expensive, and you get way more than you would expect. Great food, excellent customer service, seamless event, and even mom was happy!

Thank you thank you thank you Bold American.

Jacqui, Michelle, David, Steve and the rest of the staff were amazing at Bold American Events and Catering. We primarily used their event planning and decoration services. We also used their catering services, although the food was provided by an outside restaurant with Bold American taking care of all food coordination. We also give a great big shout out to Jacqui for making our night so great. Although we made all the plans while living in a different city, she was very accommodating in answering everything via phone and email. She was very attentive and was so flexible with all the multiple changes. On the day of the event, everything was setup as we had imagined it to be and the staff was superb, very friendly, and professional. I would highly recommended Bold American for their great service and professionalism and all the small details that they can take care of. Thank you once again! – Prerna & Jelle

Bold American is by far one of the best caterers in Atlanta, which is why they are pretty pricey. The food is incredible- seriously some of the best you will ever have at a wedding. Their staff is dedicated to making you happy and their sales reps are great. They provide a personal server and ours was awesome.
Bold is good and they know it, and they are used to running the show and not worrying about cost to you. Be careful and make sure you are specific about what you want and what your budget is.
Overall, Bold is wonderful and I recommend them to any bride who wants to make a statement and doesnt mind the price.

We used Bold American and Decor for our wedding reception. Everything was fantastic and turned out fabulous. We are still getting calls and emails about how beautiful our reception was and how the food was so delicious. Our personal server was very attentive and made sure our glasses were full and got us food so we would not have to get up and could enjoy the night. Everything they said they would do they did and in the time frame they said. If Jacqui told me she would send out a revision the next day, she would. We never had to wait on anything and they were extremely professional and excellent to work with. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for wonderful food and a great group of people to work with.

I grant a lot of the success of my wedding day to Bold American. They are wonderful to work with, have lots of great ideas, and are very willing to work with their clients and their budgets. I feel like we got away with a really great deal for all the service we got. The venue (at the King Plow Arts Center) was just our style, and everyone thought it was just perfect for us. The servers were wonderful; the food was DELICIOUS and plentiful; and Jeffrey, with whom I worked to make it all happen, is just the nicest guy.

If I had to gripe, it would be that there was a dress rehearsal for the next day's wedding that was scheduled for right before my wedding time, so that the other party was in the event space using it while we were trying to set up our decorations. My wedding was on a Friday, and so I understand that the other party had to have their rehearsal that day, but I wish it had been scheduled a little earlier. Apparently the mother-of-the-bride got snippy with my husband about being in their way (which of course isn't totally BA's fault), and their use of another space in the complex meant that the groomsmen had to change in the public men's restroom across the hall. However, for the inconvenience, they threw in an extra service gratis: they took down all our decorations after we left at 1am!

If I had to do it all again, I would definitely stick with Bold American.

Our wedding is a day that we will remember forever thanks to Amanda and the team at Bold American and King Plow. Amanda is one of the sweetest and most professional people that I have met. She took all of our worries and stress away and helped to make our day a dream come true. Our friends and family have not stopped talking about the food from that evening. It was the best food that I have ever had at a wedding. Our pumpkin soup (served in small pumpkins) was the talk of the night. Our personal attendant for the evening was very attentive and lovely. Anytime we didn't have a drink in our hand she was there asking what she could bring me. Bold is one of the most flexible companies to work with. They rarely say "no" and instead say "we will make it work".
The only issue that we really had was that our anniversary tier on the cake was not packaged up and given to us but Amanda resolved that issue as soon as I addressed it.
We will be forever grateful to Amanda and Bold for making our evening so enchanting. It was more than we could have asked for. We will refer them to everyone that we know who needs a caterer for a social or corporate event.

There are a few ways to evaluate a caterer - I used Bold American last week for my wedding, and these are my comments:

1) Our sales rep, Amanda was AWESOME. So helpful, creative, responsive, and flexible. Even showed up to our freezing event and brought blankets!

2) Food was really good. Everyone raved all night. Everyone's plate at my table was cold (we were the first table served), so there were definitely some temperature issues, but the flavor was fantastic.

3) Our "personal server" was terrible. He gave us 1 drink, brought us a plate of food, and then disappeared the rest of the night. Further, I asked for one thing to be in my "to-go" box at the end of the night and he included everything BUT that! I had no appetizers and 1 glass of wine all night because of him. No drinks, no apps, nothing because I didn't have time to track anyone down to get it.

4) The catering staff was stationed behind the house where we had the wedding party getting dressed. Throughout the night, people were in there and could hear the staff making comments. First, as the other reviewer suggested, they were laughing about how soon they could start eating all the cake, and my grandmother had to ask them to give us the leftover cake (there were even guests who didn't GET cake!!) and they tried to lie and say there was nothing left. My personal server even dropped the cake behind his back to make it look like he wasn't eating it. Totally unprofessional. Same with other personal items I brought.....if you aren't careful, they will take them all.

The company is fantastic but the servers lack some integrity. I would highly recommend the food.......but someone has to watch the staff.

Our guests are still raving about the delicious food we had! It's a little pricey but you get what you pay for! The service was excellent. We had a personal server assigned to us (bride and groom) that checked in on us throughout the evening and brought us food and drinks. She was also kind enough to check on my mother since she doesn't get around very easy. Kudos to the entire staff!

Bold American provided the most delicious food I have had at a wedding. They were easy to work with, flexible with our food options and were extremely professional throughout the sales and planning process. I would definitely use them again for another event.

Flexible, I'd say. Willing to work with what we wanted. Food quality wasn't too shabby. For the price I expected a bit better service, but it turned out well.

The food was fantastic. The booking and food selection process was great. Overall, I would recommend Bold American. The only problem I encountered was that we (the bride and groom) were supposed to have a personal server who would bring us food and drinks throughout the reception. He basically disappeared after a short time. Also, the catering staff (or someone else at our venue) took all of my leftover cake (which was a lot, and a very expensive cake). I had given strict instructions for it to be given to someone, and they kept saying it was all gone. I would still recommend the caterer, but keep a close eye on your cake.

The guests kept talking about how delicious the food was. I knew that working with a catering company that served 5 of Atlanta's best restaurants would deliver spectacular food. I wasn't wrong.

We are still getting raves and calls from people about the food- it was just incredible. I would recommend BA highly based on food and throughout the year my sales person was very helpful and responsive. The only small issues we had was on the day of the wedding- the kids meals were not served, and our VIP person assigned to my husband and I was not there as long as I would have hoped. They also cleared our food away before we had finished, and cleared our slices of cake away so we didn't get any wedding cake that night!
Overall their food is unlike any other- it's so different than the traditional wedding food. Well worth the money and a good company.

We signed a contract with Chef William Neal before he joined Bold America. After he joined them, Bold America assumed that contract. We continued to deal with Neal, but couldn't get him to return phone calls, emails, or attend scheduled meetings. It was a disaster, especially since he wouldn't honor all the terms of the original contract and we had to pay even more money for services that were supposed to be included (like three hundred dollars to put three pieces of fruit on each cake plate - it was originally complementary).
On the night of the wedding, our guests stood in line for over an hour because they hadn't placed the table in a location that could be accessed from both sides. On top of that, certain members of the staff were rude to my mother.
It was ridiculous. Bold America finally apologized after we brought the matter to their attention and refunded a small percentage of our money, but it was too little too late.
I recommend that anyone planning a wedding stays away from Bold America and especially William Neal. No one wants that kind of hassle on their wedding day.

The food was wonderful. It was a little pricey I guess but you get what you pay for sometimes. Could not have asked for better service and staff. It turned out perfect.
