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 is an all-inclusive catering service that specializes in estate weddings. In addition to providing by far the best food I have ever had at a wedding, this company provided many other services. For example, they handled the table and chair rentals along with beautiful linens to go with them. They set up our ceremony site as well as our reception site, and provided extras such as centerpiece glassware for the reception. As a bride who finds the planning process of a wedding incredibly overwhelming and even stressful, this service was priceless. I worked closely with Susan which was an absolute pleasure. She worked with me to come up with my table setting design and many other details for our big day. She was in contact with my other vendors when planning out our timeline so that everything ran smoothly. Every step of the planning process she was there to answer my questions and ease my mind. I would highly recommend Catering by Robert to anybody for their wedding… Especially one that I’m invited to, because the food really was amazing! Yum!

Susan and her team are amazing! We just had our wedding at the beginning of February at Villa Adriana. It was absolutely perfect! During the entire wedding planning process, Susan was so attentive and helpful. She was able to give us our dream wedding while staying in the budget! The food was great- we received many compliments on the food and service of the staff. The displays of the food during the reception and cocktail hour were great as well. Reflecting back I could not have imagined planning our wedding without Susan! Catering by Robert is the best!

We got married 10/15/16 at Davis Island Garden Club. We decieded to use Catering By Robert for our wedding coordination/decor along with the food (treasure chest package). We were on a tight budget and thought the package was very reasonable. We read all of these great reviews so signed the contract a year in advance. BEWARE!! Do not use this company for coordination/ decor, it was a disaster to say the least. Susan pressured us into signing a contract because they only do one wedding per day and it was busy season on the day we chose. Well she didn't even show up on my wedding day...she sent her assistances that I've never met and they were sweet however very clueless. I had met with Susan numerous times discussing the day of and planning a schedule. The ladies she sent had no clue what to do!!!! People were arriving and no one was there to direct them to there seats. The items they used for decor were old/used and broken ( the lanterns used down the isle). She reuses the candle holders and places a new candle on top of the old one!!!! Thank god I had an amazing florist to trust and make sure that didn't happen! I hated the loose chair covers and wanted the spandex fitted ones and guess what...the loose ones were on the chairs. She has yet to send me a message or follow up after the wedding. She lied about doing our centerpieces the correct way. Said it was impossible to sink roses in the vases. Come to find out..she told our florist It would be too much work. This company only cares about being paid and I feel like I've been scammed. After months of debating if I should leave a review I decided I should warn others. It would have been easier doing everything myself.

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!
