We planned our wedding from Sydney, Australia and they were so accommodating and helpful. Not to mention the food was raved about by ALL of our guests. The waitstaff was extremely attentive and Wendy (point of contact) was always available for any questions we had. I would highly recommend using them for any event you may have!

After doing a ton of research to find the best wedding catering company on Kauai, I was lucky enough to come across Contemporary Flavors Catering. The guests were raving about how delicious our food was and we couldn't agree more.

I had the unique experience of being a wedding planner professionally for several years and THEN being a bride. I knew I needed to find a company that was professional, responsive, known for great food and reasonably priced. From our very first consultation we were ready to book. They were willing to customize menu items for our guests and they even made suggestions for things we didn't think of.

Each staff member that arrived on the wedding day was very professional, easy to talk to and attentive to our needs. Our water glasses were always full, the bar was a hit all night long and the food tasted as if it was right off the grill. They were even kind enough to agree to moving our chairs from ceremony to reception, this is a huge headache so we are grateful they were able to accommodate us!

They book up quickly so if you are looking for a full service catering company, you've found it with Contemporary Flavors Catering. Thank you guys for being so terrific!

We honestly cannot say enough A-MAZING things about the food and service provided by Contemporary Flavors Catering (CFC). Our guests RAVED about the meal, absolutely no complaints. Many of our guest stated that our wedding meal was the best meal that they had during their entire time in Hawaii. Getting in contact with CFC before the wedding was a little difficult as they were very busy, but the service and the food that they delivered during the wedding was worth it. I cannot recommend them enough as a catering provider in Hawaii. The food was the highlight our our wedding.

The best catered food I've EVER had. Ever. We asked CF to cater our wedding of 95, asking for a menu that incorporated mainly local ingredients, and gave them a guideline of flavor profiles we like. What they came back with was perfection. Perfectly cooked fish and risotto for 95 people. Most items were cooked on location, along with a donut cake they topped with orchids and paired with chocolate and passion fruit sauce.
The caterer was open to executing (and did!) any and all ideas we had, the staff was professional, and most importantly, the food was perfect.

Contemporary Flavors was a wonderful find and provided fantastic food and service the day of our wedding! We were planning a destination wedding from 3,000 miles away and did not get a chance to set up a tasting during our first trip. Yet, we consistently heard such great things about the food, that we jumped in anyway. Their website is thorough and gave us a good sense of their aesthetic and what to expect with the food. This was incredibly important since we were so far away. Sometimes, it took a little bit of time to communicate timely but I understand with the time difference and the fact they are probably swamped, I was impressed with how perfect everything was the day of.

Mark was our main point of contact and he was incredibly flexible in helping us create things that were off their normal menu. For example, we requested a vodka lavender lemonade (with very short notice) as our specialty cocktail and they were able to deliver. We also requested miniature root beer floats and though they hadn't do it before, they did an amazing job with presentation and taste. Our guests loved them!

If there were hiccups the day of, I did not know of them! Everything seemed to go smoothly (also thanks to our wonderful wedding coordinator) and the CFC staff were so professional and friendly. We had 3 passed appetizers and the cold seafood station, which was our favorite. Because it was such a hot day, there were flies but CFC had a dedicated staff member to stand there with a fan to keep them away. For dinner, we had a buffet, which I was nervous about because often the food gets cold and overcooked. But here, the food was served hot, the short ribs were so tender, and the lamb action station was absolutely worth it.

My husband and I have high standards for food and are willing to invest to make sure we like the food. That being said, we found CFC to be a wonderful value for our 50 guests. Thank you again, Mark and team!!

Mark's team provided excellent food and service for my wedding! I received so many compliments from my guests on how tasty everything was. They were also very pleased with the service and how friendly the waitstaff were. From beginning, Mark really listened to my needs- I wanted something that had local flavors but also refined and creative. The menu Mark created was fun and elegant. We had a buffet line for different food stations. This allowed people to be interactive and more social. They loved the shaved ice station and the dessert station. Fresh fish was grilled on site, which made it extra tasty. Mark's team delivered great value, delicious food, and really creative atmosphere! I'd recommend Mark to anyone who's looking for a great caterer in Kauai.
