I really don't like to leave less than stellar reviews but maybe this vendor could use some feedback. I'll start with the good. The food, at least what I got to try was very good and nicely presented. The staff was pleasant and courteous. However there were a couple of things that kind of put me off. We were having a very intimate wedding 20-30 people. Kara was told this from the very first phone conversation. I was ready to keep looking for another caterer but she was open to considering doing the event. It was off season and on a Sunday so I'm guessing that played a factor. I kind of got the impression that our event was not worth her time at some points. About a week out from the wedding she told me there was a thirty person minimum which I don't recall ever hearing. But luckily for us we had that many guests so I wasn't going to argue that fact with her. Everything else was fine. She was responsive and quick to get back to us. The day of though, I feel like we never got the private
hors d'oeuvres for the bridal party. We did get some but that was during cocktail hour. I just assumed we would be served something while we were getting ready. Perhaps that was my mistake in not clarifying what this line item meant. My wedding planner had to go to McDonalds to get me, my husband and bridal party food to eat. I thought that was very classy. We never got to eat our whole plate or even much of our plate during dinner as it was removed even after we asked them to leave it. Later on my husband went to the cater to ask if he could have food of some sort and he was told that all of the food was removed from premises and that it was in contract. They were very firm about stating what was in the contract. But where were my private hors d'oeuvres. Needless to say we were starving the whole day. We ended up eating our leftovers from the rehearsal dinner. I just felt like I had a cold feeling from Kara during our first meeting and I should have listened to my gut.

Kara did an amazing job for our October 2015 wedding! The food was incredible...all of our guests loved everything.

Kara took a lot of her time to get all of the details just right--we had several in-person meetings, emails, and phone calls to figure everything out. She is very patient and helpful.

The food was exactly how we requested and the presentation of everything was perfect.

We HIGHLY recommend Kara at Classic Cuisine Catering Services for your special event!!

We were very concerned about budget- and Classic Cuisine offered the most bang for our buck. We were very happy with the choices and flexibility- we chose a package that came with dessert- but we had no need for that since we had cupcakes. So Kara, allowed us to swap for some apps. The food was good- we had a BBQ package, amazing mac and cheese and corn bread- yummy! The staff was very nice. I really don't have anything negative to say about our experience.
Thanks Kara!

Classic Cuisine worked with us for our wedding from the very beginning. Not only did Kara already have a working relationship with our venue, but she was very easy to work with. She made special arrangements for picky guests and was very reliable. We had a seated dinner and the servers were very professional and knew what they were doing. The food tasted delicious and was the best "wedding food" we have ever tasted!

I got married on 5/17/14 and I am still getting compliments from my guests on how good the food was. There really isnt any other way I can describe the food except for AMAZING! Kara was such a pleasure to work with as well. She was very responsive to all of my emails, phone calls etc. My grandfather had been put on oxygen a month before our wedding and when I brought this to kara's attention she assured me there would be no problem and there wasnt. Everything was absolutely wonderful. My grandfather actually asked for a doggie bag :-)

I had a very poor experience with Classic Cuisine Catering. A few weeks prior to the wedding, I had emailed my list of dinner rsvps. I had provided details for each table and the amount of each dinner option we would need. Multiple emails, phone calls and miscommunications later, I thought we were set. Three days before my wedding, I was told that I still needed to send that list but in a different format. An email that later was recalled because they had not read the previous one from weeks ago. The day of the wedding we were served huge portions of lasagna and balsamic chicken. The chicken was much drier than what we originally taste-tested but the lasagna was quite good. The service was not quite as good. They did not follow the list that I had provided so they ran out of chicken before serving my last few tables. My guests were told, "The bride and groom messed up so we only have lasagna left." I was horrified after hearing that I was being blamed for their mistake, something that had obviously been an issue prior to the wedding. Their price was much lower then a lot of the other caterers, but we certainly got what we paid for. I would not recommend this place for your wedding caterer.

We used Kara for our wedding. We decided on 4 stations rather than a long buffet. We had met about a year before our wedding for pricing and a tasting. We were blown away! All of the food was awesome that we tried! Kara made the initiative to keep in touch over he course if this year, finalizing and tweeking as we went. She was very helpful a flexible and willing to do whatever it took to make sure I got what I wanted at a price we wanted to pay! She called me the week before and 2 days before to make sure everything was right. She was so kind to even meet at my parents house to drop off our table linens so we could set everything up the next day.

The day of was beautiful! She was constantly checking on my new husband and I, as well as our parents' tables. Rather than using floral arrangements for the tables, we had about 100 candles. Her staff was so kind to light every single one of them! All night I received outstanding comments on the food from "it's excellent" to " the best food they've had in a long time!" Many of our guests actually asked for their name so they can call her for parties they are planning.

The bartenders were super nice. One thing I would suggest is that they try not to pour liquor drinks so strong. However, when thy were asked to lighten them up, they were very accommodating and did so with a smile!

Our experience with Kara was wonderful! All of our food was excellent and I was sad I didn't ask for a doggie bag for later on! I would definitely recommend using her!

The caterer was very flexible and even provided a gluten free meal to meal at no extra charge when my two selections were both pasta dishes. They were by far the best value of all the caterers that I interviewed and the food was great. They also provided my bar tender and that service was also excellent.
