Catering By Robert / Event Concepts . FL is a full service catering and event planning company which specializes in "distance" planning for many out-of-town clients who choose the west coast of Florida for their celebrations. We have over 30 years of professional experience and keep fresh ideas available to share with all of our wedding clients.

We service the entire West Coast of Florida. What sets us apart is that we include everything needed for a first class celebration for the basic cost of catering. From floor length linens to chair covers, choice of over 20 guest table centerpieces, to fine china and a huge inventory of colored accent fabrics, we focus on how to create a stress-free, custom-designed event for our clients.

ALSO, it is our choice, to only cater one to two events a week so we can offer all of our clients optimum levels of customization, personalized services, and planning assistance.

We have a brand new selection of trending comfort food menus called Al Fresco Florida. This collection of appetizers, side dishes, and entrees can be incorporated into our basic wedding menus for a similar or upgraded price.

If you choose an event facility that allows outside alcohol to be brought in, we can offer a full open bar service with bartenders, mixers, ice, soft drinks, garnishes AND liquor liability insurance all for only $3.25 per person (catering clients only). YOU WILL LITERALLY SAVE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS hosting your own bar.

Contact us today for a full package or call us to set up an appointment to discuss your ideas and expectations!

Catering by Robert was by far the best choice my husband and I made for our wedding. They are truly AMAZING! Susan is such a wonderful person to work with. Our wedding was on 10/08/16. We booked Susan on 02/14/15 so we had alot of time to spend getting to know her and tasting all the wonderful food! They have client open houses that you are exclusively invited to once you book with her. You get to try all the food, so when it comes time to pick your menu-you know exactly what you are getting! Catering by Robert is way more than just a catering company. Not only do they provide delicious food but they also help decorate all the guest tables, buffets, & any other tables you need for your big day. They really do go above and beyond to make sure your event is a huge success! My sweetheart table and cake table were so BEAUTIFUL! When I walked into my venue and saw how everything looked, it literally took my breath away and made me cry because it was SO amazing! The staff was also SO helpful, they got us drinks when we needed them, they brought my husband and I plates from the buffet so we didn't need to get up! We were treated like royalty! Our friends and family could not stop raving about all the delicious food! I has so many different people approach me during the wedding just to tell me that the food was the best they have ever had at a wedding! That made me so happy, because food is a very important part of your wedding day! The seafood paella is the BEST dish, and it is HUGE! It was so fun everyone was amazed by it! My husband and I are very blessed to have found Catering by Robert. Our wedding was absolutely perfect and they were a huge part in making that a success. We HIGHLY recommend Catering by Robert for your wedding or next major event. We promise you won’t be disappointed!

My husband and I were so happy that we hired Catering By Robert as our wedding caterer! Susan and her team were a pleasure to work with and they did an amazing job! CBR is more than just a caterer, they helped design and coordinate our entire reception. Included in the food price was the many of the table linens and decorations so this was an excellent value; CBR is definitely more all-inclusive than any of the other caterers that we researched. We also saved money because CBR allowed us to provide our own alcohol for the bar service.
We met with Susan in her studio on several occasions leading up to our wedding day so that we could figure out the table design, venue layout, timeline, and almost every other detail of our reception. Susan was always very responsive to emails and phone calls whenever we had a question; she even referred us to a few of our other terrific vendors. My husband and I didn't live in Tampa during most of our engagement so we were unable to attend the CBR open houses, but my parents attended several of these events where they enjoyed sampling food and gathering design ideas.
On the night of our reception, everything was perfect! The venue and table decorations were beautiful, the service was top-notch, and all of our guests commented on how much they loved the food! We even had a ton of food left-over that they boxed up and sent home with us. CBR truly provided us with peace of mind throughout the entire planning process! We definitely recommend CBR to anyone who is looking for a wonderful wedding caterer!

Choosing Catering by Robert was an amazing decision! The food was delicious, the staff were happy and helpful, and the value for all that is included with the catering package (servers, linens, etc) could not be beaten. Susan was extremely helpful in coordinating with our other vendors to ensure that everything ran smoothly. Susan and her team, including the fantastically kind Rita, made sure that everything looked amazing and transformed my vision into reality. They were professional and warm throughout the process. Although they recommended certain vendors, we chose to go different ways at times and they continued to be supportive and coordinated well with everyone we brought in. The fact that we could rely on them to set up and break down the entire wedding - including transitioning chairs and tables from one room to another between ceremony, cocktail hour and reception - was such a huge weight off our shoulders so that we could concentrate on the festivities! Thank you Susan and Catering by Robert for all the help throughout wedding planning, the yummy food, and a beautiful wedding day!

Selecting Catering by Robert was the best vendor decision we made for our wedding and highly recommend them to any couple in Tampa. Going into wedding planning, I was not certain what to expect from vendors, and never would have imagined that there was someone as helpful, informative, considerate and dedicated as Susan. The more I met with other vendors, the more I really learned that not all companies are created equal, and I grew to appreciate her talent, years of experience, and assistance even more. She truly felt like a partner during the process and you can tell she enjoys helping couples with their special day. We didnt feel like just another bride and groom with Catering by Robert, and the attention to detail and prompt communication we received made us feel so at ease.
I wasnt entirely certain what I was looking for in a caterer, other than affordable, not bland hotel food, and reasonably priced. With Catering by Robert, we got that and so much more. From helping us select our table designs to discussing menu options, they do it all. Susan worked with us in a non pushy way and really made us feel like she was there to help our vision become a reality and ensure our wedding was everything we hoped for. Her years of expertise and knowledge were so beneficial when werent certain how to proceed with various aspects of the wedding. The food at our wedding was great and we had tons of leftovers (having enough food was very important and they delivered!), The service we received before the wedding and during was phenomenal, and many guests commented on how nice the servers were. I was really pleased with the number of additional wait staff Catering by Robert offered, and having a day of coordinator at the reception hall was so wonderful. I cannot recommend Catering by Robert enough!! Thank you to Susan and all the Catering by Robert staff who made our wedding unforgettable.

CATERING BY ROBERT DOES IT ALL!

Susan did a SUPERB JOB! No need for a wedding planner with Catering By Robert. They absolutely do it all. I wish I could add pictures, the tables were totally gorgeous and the food fabulous! All our guest said it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding. The Jambalaya was as delicious as the presentation! Everyone also loved the Chicken Marsala and I heard the Roast Beef was to die for. Every minute detail was covered, Susan did it all. Thank you so much for making my daughter's wedding so wonderful!
We could not have done it without you Susan. You're the best!

Catering by Robert is the best!! Susan helped me SO much through my wedding planning.. We live 4 hours away from where the wedding was taking place so it was a bit of a challenge but Susan always kept in touch, asked how everything was going, always gave me advice, talked to my vendors, etc. She went above and beyond to make sure our wedding day was perfect. And thanks to her and her staff everything did come out PERFECT! The food was also absolutely delicious, all of our guests could not stop talking about it! I would recommend them 100% :)

We loved everything about Catering By Robert. Our wedding was held at The Powel Crosley Estate in Sarasota, FL, which provided us with a limited list of approved caterers to choose from. I checked each of the approved caterers and when I saw the reviews on Catering By Robert I had a good feeling I would end up choosing them. Then I spoke to Susan and I knew I had to have them cater our wedding. Catering By Robert was a great value for the incredible food provided. All of our wedding guests raved about how delicious the food was, many even mentioned it was the best wedding food they had ever eaten. They coordinated all rentals (tables, chairs, linens, etc.) which made planning very easy. Susan and Vicki were extremely responsive and helpful throughout all of the planning and the day of the wedding. All of our emails were returned within hours or even minutes. They were helpful in guiding us through all selections from food to chairs and linens. The tasting was wonderful and we felt like valued customers throughout the process. The staff went above and beyond to make sure all guests were happy during the event. Special attention was paid to make sure the groom and myself had plenty of food and wine throughout the night as well. We highly recommend using Catering By Robert for your wedding.... trust me you won't regret it!

I don't know where to even start - Susan at Catering by Robert is a lifesaver! When we began planning our wedding in January, we reached out to a few vendors that we found on WeddingWire/The Knot/etc. to inquire about pricing, flexibility, etc. Right off the bat, Susan was the most responsive and helpful vendor that we reached out to. As you begin planning, you will find that MOST vendors take 2-3 days to respond to inquiries (which can be extremely frustrating). Susan would always respond almost immediately. Even if she didn't have an immediate answer, she would send a note just so I knew that she had received my message and would have an answer to me soon! She was also very helpful in our venue search and provided little tips of the trade as we were digging through the challenges of planning a destination wedding (we live in Atlanta). As the wedding drew nearer, she walked the venue with us and helped think of key details that we may have forgotten or hadn't thought of yet.
To say they are a full-service catering company is an understatement!! The venue we booked had a "built in planner" that was a nightmare to work with, so I put Susan in charge of everything with the reception: Table placements, paying other vendors, general coordination of the evening, etc. Because we had met and talked numerous times, I knew that we were in good hands with Susan. Not only was the food INCREDIBLE (guests were RAVING over the paella!), but the decor was perfect. Catering by Robert provided centerpieces, table linens, dishes etc. and Susan knew exactly what my vision was for our decor, and executed it perfectly. The entire evening went off without a hitch, and it was more perfect than I ever imagined, thanks to Catering by Robert!
