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.

Mark and his team at Contemporary Flavors were an integral part of making our wedding absolutely exceptional. From the first meeting we had with Mark to the impeccable, seamless clean-up after the food service on the night of our wedding was completed, everyone at Contemporary Flavors was perfectly professional, creative, on-time, dependable made us feel like we were their only clients, despite how busy they were.

Having delicious food at our wedding was a top priority for us. We're big foodies and wanted a wide variety of flavors and types of dishes that all of our guests could enjoy. At our initial meeting, Mark asked us a series of questions about our food preferences and came up with an incredibly creative menu full of fresh and exciting ideas.

As we finalized the menu Mark and his team were quick to respond and always thoughtful. There were so many details and throughout the entire process not one was overlooked. Because our venue was new to them, Mark came down himself to walk the property and help us come up with a layout for all of the food tables, tents etc. The tasting they had for us was exceptional and added to our excitement for our Big Day.

On our wedding day the contemporary flavors team was prompt and did a phenomenal job setting up. Not only was everything in it's place, Mark's team decorated the tables beautifully with fruit, wine boxes we had supplied and table clothes. The food was absolutely phenomenal (all of our guests continue to rave about it) and aesthetically the entire presentation was outstanding. To top it all off, the service of all of their staff was impeccable. Everyone was friendly, thoughtful, conscientious, efficient and absolutely professional.

We are so deeply grateful to everything Mark and the Contemporary Flavors Catering Ohana did for us. Mahalo!

We were very happy with both the food and service provided by Contemporary Flavors. The food was delicious - especially the pasta action station (which my husband said was the best pasta he's ever had). They were very flexible with us in creating a menu - and it was very convenient that they also provided our cake at a very reasonable cost. All the staff were very friendly and stayed on top of making sure peoples drinks were full and appetizers came by regularly. We would definitely recommend them - as we couldn't have asked for anything more. Thanks!

Contemporary Flavors is amazing! The food at our wedding was delicious, and the guests couldn't stop talking about how great the food was. Mark, the owner, is a pleasure to work with. He has a huge menu selection to choose from, and he will work with you to make a menu that works for you. We had passed appetizers after the ceremony and a buffet dinner, and everything was terrific! Now, for his staff. They are wonderful. The staff were so kind and took care of us and all of the guests. We also hired a bartender through Contemporary Flavors, and he as great. Contempory Flavors gives you the option to provider your own alcohol, which was a nice option. I can't recommend Contemporary Flavors enough!

Contemporary Flavors did an absolutely amazing job with the food for our wedding. Our guests couldn't stop talking about the food and we are still hearing about how wonderful it was months later.

We worked with Mark and he did a great job of helping us select a menu that made sense for us. I am a vegetarian and he even provided me with a special "brides menu" so I wouldn't miss out on enjoying the food at my wedding.

Contemporary Flavors also did the cake for our wedding. I provided a picture of a cake I liked from a magazine and they were able to replicate it exactly as it was in the photograph - I was blown away!

I would highly recommend Contemporary Flavors to anyone getting married in Kauai!
