Chris and his staff were on top of their game for my wedding. I think the food was even better at the wedding than when we went for the tasting. And the food was great then. We had a sushi bar and that can be tricky. I had many, many guests tell me it was the best sushi they had ever had. An amazing feat for a wedding. The staff was well trained and organized. Our guests and I were very happy with the service. Cafe' Natalie definitely lived up to their reputation of providing great food and service.

Cafe Natalie catered our wedding (including the bar) and they did an amazing job - everything from the service to the food was exceptional. All of our guests commented about how much they enjoyed the food; additionally, we had some very picky eaters including vegan, and lactose intolerant dishes. Chris catered to our guests' needs without any issues. Their professionalism and flexibility, coupled with their high quality of service made our wedding all the more special!

Cafe Natalie was our wedding caterer (including bar service) and everything turned out AMAZING!!! First, their communication and responsiveness was on point through all stages of the planning process. Chris knows what he is doing! We had a mixture of Vietnamese and American guests and everyone raved about the food. All guest were full and satisfied and even commented about the fantastic flavor of the food and the tenderness of the beef. The servers were extremely organized and efficient! Our guests loved the bar service as well and we only received gushing compliments from everyone. Thank you Cafe Natalie, Chris, Adela, and Christie (our event manager) for making our wedding reception an amazing and unforgettable night. We highly recommend your catering and bar services to anyone planning an event!!!!

Café Natalie was the easiest and most delicious part of our wedding. The hardest part was narrowing down the food choices since at the tasting we had such a hard time deciding what NOT to get! We greatly appreciated all of the great attention and customer service we received before and after the event. I will continue to use Café Natalie for all my events. Chris and his wife were amazing and very approachable. They moved recently to an even closer location than before the wedding so that only makes it even better for future clients. I got rave reviews from my wedding guests, they said this was the best wedding dinner they had ever eaten. I gave all 5 stars and I truly mean it. As a realtor in Houston and a bride, I wish I could email blast everyone in town to let them know to shop no further, Café Natalie is the best and worth every penny.

Café Natalie provided hands down the best catering service imaginable!! Chris Nguyen and his brother David were awesome to work with and very professional. The food was truly a highlight that I'm still getting compliments about. The relationship that they have with my wedding venue just added that extra element of precision and execution where the service was just effortless. They provided my beverage service as well as complimentary cake cutting service with serving utensils provided. The food was served hot and fresh and was DELICIOUS!! I would definitely recommend their service to others and would use them in the future!!

Our wedding was on 9/28/13 and My wife and I could not be happier with the services Cafe Natalie provided. Chris at Cafe Natalie really knows what he is doing. The service was exceptional they were set up on time and ready to serve right when we asked.

We and all of our guests were beyond amazed with the food, presentation and professionalism. We had the Pistachio Crusted Fish and it was amazing! Our friends and family are still talking about the food. The taste testings before the wedding were so good and everything was perfect. Cocktail Hour and the Appetizers were amazing!!

Overall, I don't think any catering company in Houston can compete with Cafe Natalie. I would recommend Cafe Natalie to everyone I know. They are the very best!

My wife and I could not be happier with the services Cafe Natalie provided. Chris at Cafe Natalie really knows what he is doing. We and all of our guests were beyond amazed with the food, presentation and professionalism.

The service: They were set up on time and ready to serve right when we asked. Plates were served to each table all at once, as a plated dinner should be properly done and all tables were served very fast. Very impressive!

The food: Excellent! We had the Pistachio Crusted Fish and Filet Mignon (surf and turf) served as a plated dinner. Our friends and family are still talking about the food. The steak was so tender it could be cut with a butter knife. I typically hate fish but I loved this fish. The taste testings before the wedding were so good, but I was skeptical they could make everything so good when prepared in bulk. I was so WRONG! Everything was perfect and you don't need to worry about this.

Cocktail Hour Appetizers: Chris will do almost anything you ask. He is full of ideas on how to present the past appetizers. We did Bruschetta, Chicken Wellingtons and Shrimp Diablo Shooters. We requested the Shrimp Diablo be served in shooters which they typically are not. Everything was amazing!!

The only slight issue we had was the responsiveness in the very beginning and the ability to meet for taste testings. We planned the wedding from out of town and Cafe Natalie only does tastings during the week. This is understandable as they do weddings and events all weekend. It takes a few days for Cafe Natalie to get back with you in the early planning stage. The week before the wedding they were very on top of the event and made sure to warn us of anything they still needed. I think this responsiveness problem has been resolved as Chris has hired an assistant.

Overall, I don't think any catering company in Houston could come close to being as great as Cafe Natalie. I would recommend Cafe Natalie to everyone I know. They are the very best!

Chris and his team were absolutely amazing to work with. All the food we tasted was so delicious that it was difficult deciding on the final menu, and you really can't beat their prices (which are inclusive of service charges and taxes). Their bar packages were a great value as well. As far as I know, everything went smoothly the day of the wedding. We got our the top tier of our cake and the cake topper. They packaged up some meals for us and some hors d'oeuvres for us to eat back at the hotel, but due to our terrible wedding "planner," we never saw them. Not Cafe Natalie's fault.

Chris really went out of his way throughout our planning process to ensure my family, husband, and I were all satisfied with the food and the services. I would recommend Cafe Natalie to anyone.

We used Cafe Natalie for our wedding this past weekend, and they were FANTASTIC! Our wedding was on the larger side (240-250 people), and everyone who I have talked to said that the food and bar service were great! Chris was always prompt in returning messages and was easygoing and helpful. I appreciated that the meals were priced a flat fee per person which included the china, taxes, gratuity, etc. It made planning so much easier. I would definitely recommend Cafe Natalie to any bride looking for a caterer.

We found Cafe Natalie after a very unfortunate situation with our past caterer (City View Catering DO NOT GO WITH THEM!) just a month before our wedding! Working with Olde Dobbin Station, they were able to give us everything we wanted at the same price as our previous caterer. To be honest I think all the service we got was 100% better than the previous caterer would have been! Right before we walked into the venue to be introduced Chris came up to us to inform us he added an extra entree for free! (Though I'm sure he cannot guarantee this for everyone) Talk about service! Working with him was such a breeze and it was just what we needed after dealing with such a horrible catering service before. I would completely recommend them to everyone! Oh by the way they have an office in Richmond and an office in Conroe so they are available practically everywhere in Houston!

From the Groom:

We had an unexpected change in plans for our venue/catering services so I had to act quick. About 3 weeks before the wedding I contacted Chris @ Cafe Natalie and he was extremely helpful. At first he helped me shop around and gave me an idea on prices. Once I realized how easy it was to do business with Chris I was determined that Cafe Natalie would be our caterer. Chris and the crew made our wedding day absolutely effortless and the guests had nothing but positive things to say in regards to the service and quality of the food. I highly recommend this company; you will be impressed!

No caterer will work harder, give you quality of food and make you feel special at the same time. I loved our caterer AND so did our guests. We have received multiple compliments on the level of service they provided.

A bit about our wedding:
We were looking for a caterer who could provide a cultural fusion (as my husband is part Indian and I am Korean but both of us are American bred). We tried to work with other caterers to see if they could give us what we were looking for but all failed. We wanted a little Korean, Indian and American food. We were referred to Chris Nguyen @ Cafe Natalie and he blew us away. He gave us unique options that still held true to the culture yet still put a elegant twist on EVERYTHING.

Overall experience:
From start to finish Chris and his staff made us feel special, worked with our every need (quick & responsive) and listened. From our previous bad experiences with trying to work with other caterers in Houston, he was THE best. There is not a single negative I have to say about him and if you know my personality, that is a rare comment to achieve! He also has alot of good stock on supplies (tables, chairs, etc). He gives his customers a competitive rate and I would venture to say he is the best. I am just waiting for another event to occur to use him again in the future! If anyone is looking for a caterer for any special event I would highly recommend Cafe Natalie. If you haven't at least met with him, then you need to make an appointment.

This group has catering down to an art form. When I began searching for food and drink service I knew I wanted my food to be amazing and I wanted my guests to have the best service. At our very first meeting Chris brought out several different entrees and sides for us to try and by the end of the night we were sold and hired his team.

We provided fruit and cheese display and a passed ordeuvre, a buffet of two meats, three sides, salad, bread, and bar service at the wedding and all of our 160 guests could not have been more impressed with the food and service. They also provided our bar service and chocolate fountain which was a BIG hit!

My family and I visited with several other highly rated catering companies before going with Cafe Natalie and none of them provided us with food at the first meeting. Other catering companies also wanted to charge us for the plates, napkins, flatware, and stemware all of this came with our per person food price. Also, many of companies did not have the same wide selection in food or place settings that Cafe Natalie provided. I wanted white plates with a silver trim and I got it with Cafe Natalie and there was no extra charge. They are willing to work within ANY price range and will provide great service.

They are professional and have all the experience to get the job done right! If you want service and great food save yourself the trouble and just go with this company!

Their prices were VERY reasonable compared to other places we looked, and they had great choices for picky eaters like me and my husband! They also had no problem providing different food options for my husband's grandmother who has swallowing difficulties! Their alcohol package was also the best value we found and gave us a good variety of choices! The staff was incredibly nice, provided great service, and gave us delicious food at a great price! Highly recommended!

I am SO, SO, SO pleased with the service we received from Cafe Natalie. When we went in for the tasting, it was hard to choose a course for our wedding because everything was so delicious! They worked with us on our budget and we were able to get a GREAT price for open bar, cocktail hour appetizers, and of course, the main meal. The staff took care of everything on our wedding day, all of the pre-planning was so efficient. I would recommend Cafe Natalie to anyone who is looking for a caterer! They are AWESOME!

Cafe Natalie handled the bar service at our wedding. It could not have been better. Chris was completely accommodating and professional throughout our relationship and everything ran completely smoothly on the day. I didn't have to do a thing. I would strongly recommend booking Cafe Natalie for any event.

My wife and I had our wedding in Korea with our families, and then another wedding reception in Houston with our friends. We had our wedding in Korea at the Hotel Shilla, which is one of the most expensive and high class wedding venues in Korea. I say this not to brag, but to express the following - in working with Chris and Cafe Natalie, I experienced a level of service, responsiveness, professionalism, value, and flexibility that resulted in the same level of satisfaction that we experienced with the Hotel Shilla. Granted, our event in Houston was less extravagant and a smaller scale, but I feel that we received the same level of attention, that all promises were fulfilled, and that when our event was complete, there was no expectation that was not met. I would recommend working with Cafe Natalie to anyone who appreciates personal care, professional service, and attention to detail.

Cafe Natalie was outstanding! From our first meeting with Cafe Natalie, it was clear that our catering needs would be met and exceeded. We selected Cafe Natalie because Cafe Natalie gave us confidence that all of the details would be taken care of. The pricing at Cafe Natalie was straightforward, which was refreshing after trying to decipher the total cost of some other vendors. Cafe Natalie's package included everything we needed for the meal: food, drinks, plates, silverware, glasses, napkins, servers, alcoholic beverages, setup and cleanup crew, and they even packaged to go boxes for my wife and me. They took care of everything, probably even things that I forgot. From my perspective as the groom, I was able to relax and enjoy my reception because I could trust that Cafe Natalie would deliver without any hiccups.

Chris Nyugen, the owner of Cafe Natalie, is a hands on manager of his business and provided us excellent food, beverage and service at our daughter's wedding reception at The Gallery. I considered Cafe Natalie as our caterer because I was familiar with their food from their days of having a restaurant in Sugar Land and Richmond. But I selected them because of Chris' simplicity of providing his services at the Gallery. I appreciate that he did not nickel and dime me to death...dishes, glasses, flatware and linens were included in his pricing. We sat with Chris to describe our vision and he created the perfect menu to please our daughter and her fiancé. He provided good ideas and insight as we decided on buffet vs. sit down dinner vs. multiple food stations. Before we committed to using his services, he invited us for a full tasting all items on the menu. Everything turned out beautifully and the guests LOVED the food. Their service was excellent throughout the evening. I will absolutely use Cafe Natalie again!

Cafe Natalie's service was the absolute least of our worries. We never felt like we had to check up/in on them to make sure they knew what we wanted or how we wanted it or whether they knew what time we needed x or y. They were simply perfection through and through. All our guests raved about their excellent food, the delicious chocolate fountain, and the excellent bar service. Cafe Natalie met all our needs and exceeded our expectations at every turn. We had several guests who said that their children who are usually very finicky eaters were eating everything! If that doesn't speak volumes about how delicious the food was, I don't know what does! Thank you, Cafe Natalie, for easing our fears and providing better service than we could have ever hoped for!

If I had to plan a wedding all over again, the first vendor I would call would be Cafe Natalie. Cafe Natalie provided catering for food and beverages at our wedding on March 2, 2012. All of our guests loved the food!! We wanted to have an ice cream cookie bar station and they were also able to provide this as well. Our guests could not stop talking about the ice cream cookie bar. Chris and his staff are so easy to work with and they really go above and beyond to take the stress off the bride by handling everything. I can not speak more highly of Cafe Natalie and if you need a catering company you are missing out if you dont use them for your event.

Cafe Natalie provided catering and bar services at our wedding in the heights and I could not have asked for more. Chris was very thourough in the tastings and follow-up conversations to ensure that every detail was covered and that he was clear on our desires and expectations for the service. The food served (pistacio encrusted redfish and chicken parmesian) was absolutely delicious. Every single person I spoke with said that it was by far the best food they've had at a wedding. The day of the wedding was full of worries about vendors showing up on time and with the right items. Cafe Natalie made sure that we had no worries on that day. I would highly recommend them to anyone seeking a caterer. Unbeatable, especially for the price.

We were VERY VERY pleased with the food, bartending, and overall service Cafe Natalie provided for our wedding. The bartenders provided a signature drink - although a little different from the original, all our guests absolutely enjoyed it and so did I. Chris worked with us on our New Orleans themed cuisine - it came out excellent, our guests enjoyed the "not so traditional" wedding reception dinner. The servings were generous! We received many compliments on the appetizers passed around during the cocktail hour and the sliders that we offered as a late night snack. Chris worked a number of events at our reception venue so that helped in having someone very familiar.

I look forward to working with Cafe Natalie and Chris again. My husband works with Cafe Natalie on a routine basis and he was absolutely pleased with them making our wedding reception all that we expected.

Cafe Natalie went beyond my expectations!!! Excellet service, quality and pricing. Before hiring Cafe Natalie as my wedding caterer I tried 3 or 4 other catering companies. None of them compare to the quality, taste and pricing of Cafe Natalie. I met Chris at one of their venues and really liked his professionalism and willingness to please his clients. The quality (taste) and presentation were amazing. Then I spoke with him about some changes I wanted to do to the menu. He was so easy to work with and got exactly what we wanted. My now husband and I had our last tasting couple of weeks before the wedding and everything taste just PERFECT!!! Chris worked with our budget and delivered a very well done final product that all our guests enjoyed. Many friends and family members told us after the wedding about how exquisite the food was. Chris thank you and your staff for making my wedding day so stressless and enjoyable. I highly recommend Cafe Natalie.

I could not have been any more pleased with Cafe Natalie. I am an undecisive person, with a very picky hands on mother. Chris made sure to help me pick out a pefect menu (7 course Vietnamese/American meal) that pleased everyone at the wedding and left my mother with nothing but praise for them. Chris, his wife, and staff went beyond the call of duty to ensure my reception went perfect. They even helped set up my wedding favors table and took care of dad who was not feeling well. I was soooo happy with them. I was also on a budget and they worked with me so I didn't have to "settle" on my big day. I had everything I wanted. Their service and food is non comparable to any other place. I will definitely use you again in the future. Thank you for all that you guys have done for me. - Karyn Price

It was truly a blessing to have worked with Chris Nguyen and his wife of Cafe Natalie and staff for our wedding. It was everything that we had hoped and expected. The food was absolutely just delicious....Guests are still raving about it 3 months later. The guest were so amazed with the serving proportions in comparison to other events that they had attended. The staff were dressed professionally in there attire with bow ties and white gloves. The owners wife was on site to assure everything ran smoothly. My glass stayed filled with Chardonnay, including the guests. It was just awesome. And to add the icing on the cake, at most weddings the bride and groom doesn't really get to enjoy there meal, Chris the owner made a special trip to our hotel room with food for us to enjoy that evening. What a blessing! If you want a professional who truly cares about you and your guests on your most special day, definitely hire Chris and Cafe Natalie to help make your dream event come true.

He was kind and supportive. ?He was very helpful in creating the menu for my reception. He took the time to get to know my fiance and me. He came up with a creative and unique theme, all while respectfully staying within my budget. Chris even helped me set up my linens with a company, and volunteered to pick up and return the linens for me.

On the Wedding day, the Cafe Natalie Staff were in their tux shirts and bow ties, professional to a T! You would be crazy not to book Cafe Natalie immediately!!! And I mean that from the bottom of my heart.

Chris and his team are the way to go when it comes to catering. They are very professional and went above and beyond for us on our Wedding Day.
We had so many compliments on the food, Even now, when I see some of my guests, they still tell me how great the food was :)
We had our Wedding and Reception at the same place, so the room needed to be swapped around after the Ceremony. They moved the chairs around for us and took care of the decorations. Chris is genuinely nice and he listened to everything we wanted. I saw him a couple of times at different Bridal shows and he remembered us. He always greeted us with a smile and a hug. If you want someone who listens, and cares about what your wants and needs are.. Cafe Natalie is the place to go! Thank you so much Chris and staff for helping make our day so special !

Chris and his team recently catered my wedding on June 11th @ Las Velas (Houston, TX) and they were very flexible with us from the beginning. They accommodated our initial tasting, late Friday evening as I travel weekly. Additionally, Chris and team are truly engaged into their business & industry and provided many options and formats for us to consider for our wedding, explaining pros and cons of food types, appts, layout, serving styles, costs, etc. They were also open to us bringing in special requests and learned about us, what we liked, and answered all of our questions. Two weeks before the wedding, we still didn't have everything finalized and they were very patient and understanding, offered another tasting event to specifically show case new dishes we were dreaming up to see which one we’d pick. Our struggle was not “what to serve”, it was “which one to serve”… many choices to pick from and they tasted so good.
Wedding day... Chris and team were on point and delivered way above expectations. They were setup, understood timelines, worked w/ the DJ to ensure last min changes were communicated across all... their organization and delivery skills were outstanding. In terms of value... the food tasted fresh and delicious. The meat was tender, the chicken was savory, and each plate was piled high with food, second servings were welcomed and attendees went back for more. They checked in from time to time to ensure we had everything we needed.

Chris and his team recently catered my wedding on June 11th @ Las Velas (Houston, TX) and they were very flexible with us from the beginning. They accommodated our initial tasting, late Friday evening as I travel weekly. Additionally, Chris and team are truly engaged into their business & industry and provided many options and formats for us to consider for our wedding, explaining pros and cons of food types, appts, layout, serving styles, costs, etc. They were also open to us bringing in special requests and learned about us, what we liked, and answered all of our questions. Two weeks before the wedding, we still didn't have everything finalized and they were very patient and understanding, offered another tasting event to specifically show case new dishes we were dreaming up to see which one we’d pick. Our struggle was not “what to serve”, it was “which one to serve”… many choices to pick from and they tasted so good.
Wedding day... Chris and team were on point and delivered way above expectations. They were setup, understood timelines, worked w/ the DJ to ensure last min changes were communicated across all... their organization and delivery skills were outstanding. In terms of value... the food tasted fresh and delicious. The meat was tender, the chicken was savory, and each plate was piled high with food, second servings were welcomed and attendees went back for more. They checked in from time to time to ensure we had everything we needed. We were short handed in lighting up the candles, and they diverted resources to take care of it for us without us even asking… summarizing my experience, Chris and team truly enjoy their industry, they demand and deliver top performance of themselves, and they cook with enthusiasm… catering is merely a mechanism of delivering the food.

My wedding was on April 30 2011 at Las Velas in Houston, TX. Cafe Natalie was our Cater. Cafe Natalie was the only vendor we did a tasting with. This was because as soon as we sampled their food we knew that they would be catering our wedding. Chris from Cafe Natalie was very professional and accommodating through out our planning. The food from Cafe Natalie is season very well and packed full of flavor. Everyone who attended was satisfies with the portions and continue to rave about how great the food was. Many have even stated that they have attended many weddings and this is hands down the best wedding food they have had. Chris and his staff made sure to set aside food for us to take to the hotel after the wedding. This was great, as we were so busy through out the night interacting with our guest that we did not get to finish our food at the reception. Plus after all that dancing, my husband and I both worked up an appetite, so it was great to have food to munch on back at the hotel Thank you to Chris and the staff from Cafe Natalie for assisting in making my wedding even more special and memorable.

My wedding was on 3/12/2011. Cafe Natalie was our catering service. The food provided by them was very fresh and delicious. I ordered Shrimp Scampi, Blackened Salomon and Chicken Parmesanwe. Besides that, I also had chinese fried noodles for my parent in case they don't like the western food. All our guest and my parent all liked the food. Thanks Chris! You did a good job to arrange the catering and also gave us a peace of mind for my wedding. Also, thanks for the Chief too! Even I never see you, you really did a very good to prepare the food. I definitly give a good reference to anyone who are looking for a catering service. You won't be disppointed.

As with any bride, I went into my wedding wanting to save as much money as humanly possible. There was one thing that I wasn't willing to compromise on and that was the food, thankfully, with Cafe Natalie, I didn't have to compromise on either food quality or price.

Chris did an awesome job with us from the get go, he was clear and concise on everything that was going on and maintained spot-on communication throughout the process.

During the event, Cafe Natalie handled everything with the venue, had everything set up perfectly and did everything they said they were going to do and more. The staff is just beyond excellent and the food was just divine!

If you ever needed a caterer for your event, you can stop looking at Cafe Natalie, cause I firmly believe that they are one of the best in town!

(I may have left a review, but my daughter's wedding date was WAY messed up and I couldn't figure out how to change it.....they were married 02/19/2011). So - here goes once more: I couldn't be more pleased we chose Cafe Natalie as our catering service! Chris was incredibly easy to work with, responded well to either phone calls or emails and worked well with our wedding planner. The food was outstanding and the portions were the perfect size. His beverage/alcohol package is not a budget-breaker and his staff was professional, informed, and aimed to please. Without a doubt, the guests we've talked to have complimented Cafe Natalie. They provide outstanding service, a beautiful place-setting, and great food for a very reasonable price. As the mother-the-bride, I can tell you that they did a fabulous job taking care of the bride and groom at the reception - they were treated as the "main event" - which there were! :-) Great job Chris!

Cafe Natalie's food was excellent! Our experience choosing our menu was great! We went to their office, though a bit hard to find, and had everything brought to us family style so there was plenty to try for decision making. I was hesitant since we didn't choose the caterer because they came with the venue. In the end, there were a couple of things to the menu that weren't exactly like the tasting but I got great reviews from the guests at our wedding so I would definitely call it a success.

The food is AWESOME!! THE best catering I've ever had at a wedding--and I'm not just saying that because it was our wedding! We had "stations" set up where our guests could choose which to go to without lines being too long. The cheese ravioli (which they sauteed right in front of you!) and the homemade marinara sauce is outstanding! The staff was polite and offered to get my husband's and my food since we were busy mingling. And Chris was great to work with throughout the whole planning process...it was a bummer when he wasn't present at our event! (Though David, his brother I believe, was sent in his place, and he was great.) The only complaints I would have was that during our toast, my husband and I were the only ones served champagne--all of our guests hadn't been served and ended up toasting with whatever they were drinking beforehand! Also, our "complimentary sodas" were being sold at first, until my father corrected them...both two small blips, but no big deals. Overall, great company!

Its easily to forget all the details but when you do it is awesome that your vendors are able to respond. The FOOD was FANTASTIC and they brought us two sets of food because one had gotten cold since our pictures went over the time. I loved Cafe Natalie and so did my guests.

I had two small complaints one of the appetizers we ordered somehow was changed at our reception and Chris was a little hard to get a hold of sometimes. Chris was very nice, flexible and answered all our questions. thank you Cafe Natalie!

Overall, we were extremely pleased with the services provided by Cafe Natalie. The food was delicious and the servers present at the wedding reception were beyond helpful and friendly. My biggest complaint with this company is that the employees did not seem to communicate well with each other. Although we had everything planned out with the catering manager before the wedding, the individuals who arrived early to set up seemed to be completely unaware of these plans. For example, they expected us to have tables and refrigerators available for them to use even though the manager told us that they would provide them. Also, we were told that there would be champagne, tea, and coffee served during the reception, but none of these beverages were offered. The worst mistake was that the servers told our guests that they were eating tilapia when in fact they were (supposedly) eating redfish. This was pretty embarrassing for us, as all of our guests received a menu before the wedding. Besides these communication mishaps, we were pleased with Cafe Natalie. The guests loved the food and thought the service was outstanding. I would recommend using this company... but would suggest you confirm all details 2 or 3 times before the actual event.

We did not have very many choices with drink vendors for our wedding at the Gallery so we ended up going with Cafe Natalie. Overall, we were pleased with their service and the drinks were decent, but I felt like we should have just stuck with beer and wine because the mixed drinks were good, but not amazing, and as lovers of craft cocktails, we should have known not to expect Anvil quality drinks! We had two signature drinks including an Old Fashioned and I couldn't believe that one of the servers when asked to make one said that he didn't know how!! I guess they figured out, but the cocktails were not top-notch. I should note that we paid extra for the "premium" menu (although it was really mid-level liquor) because we felt like the well liquor would not be worth it, but I'd rather have just drunk wine than a mediocre "premium" cocktail.

Without a doubt, the food that Chris and his team prepared for our September 18th wedding at the Gallery - was phenomenal. During each of our meetings, Chris was very accommodating (setting up tastings outside his normal schedule due to me being out of town), and always provided great face-to-face service. My only complaint in working with Chris is that he was not always as responsive via other communication (email) as we expected from a vendor, and one of our final selections was not handled accurately on the wedding day. Chris ultimately resolved any concerns we may have had and as I mentioned the food is fantastic. However, I would encourage Chris and his team to focus on responsiveness for future clients.

During each of our meetings, Chris was very accommodating (setting up tastings outside his normal schedule due to me being out of town), and always provided great face-to-face service. My only complaint in working with Chris is that he was not always as responsive via other communication (email) as we expected from a vendor, and one of our final selections was not handled accurately on the wedding day. Chris ultimately resolved any concerns we may have had and as I mentioned the food is fantastic. However, I would encourage Chris and his team to focus on responsiveness for future clients. Read less

We were VERY disappointed with the finished product. Initially it was great, the tasting and the one one one consultations was very professional. At the tasting the food was presented well and was appealing. At our event the lobster bisque was no more than a tomatoe soup flavored with with lobster flavoring, there was no lobster in the soup and it was cold. The main entree was VERY unappealing to the eyes, the two meats (steak and fish) was plied on a plate with the vegetables and pasta and the bread was placed on top of the plate. The steak wasn't eaten by the majority of our guest because it was rare, it should have been cooked a little more. I would have thought the bread and butter would have been placed on the table in baskets or bread holder while the pasta should have been served in a smaller dish instead of plied on the plate, which was too small, with the veggies and two meats. Although the owner is very professional and presents himself well we was very disappointed. I think this caterer is experienced in buffet style dinners and not sit down dinners.

We used this caterer as it was recommended by our venue (we had to pay an extra $500 if we used anyone else). I really wanted to like this place- as the owner was so friendly- but the food was lackluster, cafeteria tasting and bland. At the open house- where I first tasted the food- it was very disappointing (my husband commented he could make better chicken/pasta). I wrote it off that it was an open house- so probably poor quality. At our wedding tasting, while some of the appetizers were great, the overall impression was just "OK". By no means is this food going to "wow" your guests. For us, this was ok as we weren't focused on food since we had a really late wedding. I was just a little sad/embarrassed that the food wasn't better tasting.

They do offer good package deals and a great bar package- so that was a definite plus. I think they served everything well at our reception, though the only major crisis of my wedding occurred when I arrived at the reception to see the bar line stretch across the entire venue. I freaked out as this is my biggest pet peeve (long bar lines at receptions) ! I literally entered my reception and ran to find the manager to ask that they add some more bar tenders till the line went down. They handled this with no problems- I was just really frustrated that they hadn't even noticed this MASSIVE line and that it took the bride hunting down the manager to resolve the situation. Luckily, this issue, once resolved, never happened again that night. Overall, Café Natalie is ok. DOn't go with them if you want good food. If you want a good deal with mediocre food and good service, then they'll work out fine.

Worst experience ever. I met with chris on several occasions to make sure the food was going to be great. The first time I met chris he came across as a nice guy who knew how to manage his business. The second tasting is when things started to go down hill. They were gnats EVERYWHERE! It's so not professional to have gnats everywhere in your place of business, specially a catering business. At that moment I wish I could have gotten my money back, but it was too late... I'd already sign the contract. He apologized, and reassured me I won't have gnats in my food for the day of....yikes. Another issue was he lied about the quote he gave me several times, this took place two days before my wedding. Brides be aware and please do your research.
