I don't even know where to start.
The manager who told us she would be at out wedding was a no show. The people she sent to set up were very rude , we were expected to pay in full the day before my wedding (which she never told us we had to do) . They didn't bring any extra cutlery so if you dropped your fork you had to stop eatting and they went and washed your fork. The chef was nice and the food wasn't bad.
We were told to buy containers to package all the left overs, so we did and put then in the kitchen but they servers took it all with them when they left.
They left dirty dishes all over our head table, put the desert bar out to early and they person they sent the following day to clean up looked like she had drank a 40 pounder and slept for 2 hours.
The worst part was when she never got a tip , she didn't even bother to call and ask if everything went right and ask how her service was.

I wouldn't recommended this catering company to anyone

I now know why she was fired from doing my mother in laws company Christmas parties

I used cosmic catering for my wedding this past July. We recieved everything that was promised to us (ie the sparkling wine, napkins, people that helped serve the wedding party etc.)...Monique was there and even came up and congratulated us. We did get married on a Friday so maybe we were the only wedding they had that day? We didn't make any changes to the set menu so I cannot really comment on flexibilty. We got many comments from our guests about the great food was. I thought on paper the selection was going to be too small but it turned out to be more than enough. The potatoes were especially yummy, we had several people going back for plates of just potatoes. Cosmic was reccomended to us so we did not really compare with other catering companies so I'm not sure if we got a good deal or not. I had a positive experience I would reccomend the company

Do not fall for the sales pitch...I should have trusted my fiancé (now wife's) instinct that anyone who must pump their own tires that much is overselling. We were told they would light all the candles and open the wine bottles; we were also to receive a complimentary bottle of Champagne...we asked about it and the servers knew nothing of it. On to the food...the carrots were described as honey glazed; they were steamed sliced carrots. We had 12 less guests than we counted on when giving our final count yet the chicken ran out and 4 tables (32people) had to go without. Overall a disappointing decision for the $4000 we spent on our wedding dinner. Now we know for next time.

Wow after reading the other comment the exact same thing happened to me on my wedding day. A number of thing were discussed and outcome on the day of the wedding was completely different. I had an outdoor wedding this July and Monique knew this from day one...on the day of the wedding Monique wasnt there and never stopped by at any point in the evening. The staff that showed up looked like a bunch of turkeys as they were stairing at our outdoor tent wedding walking in circles saying they didn't know how to set up for this. My dad and long time family friend on the day of my wedding set up all the table for the staff and pretty much arranged the trays etc on the tables (pretty much did their job). At the head table we were told their would be a bottle of champagne for toasting one was not given to us nor was one left for us anywhere?!?! The roasted potatoes were to be a split order with rice pilaf which didn't happen we only recieved the potatoes. The Salmon was to have a hollandaise sauce with shrimp instead it was covered with a teriyaki glaze of some sort. At the end of dinner all the left overs were to be left at the house and this was pre discussed as well with Monique. At the end of the night and early morning my poor mother realizes nothing was left, so after having a long wedding day and late night she had to get up in the morning and go grocery shopping for food for the next day. Food that we were promised would be left as we where having a house wedding not a hall wedding. So on top of the fact that my parents had to now dish out more money for food that should have been left we get no response from Monique at cosmic catering. We have sent over a letter twice with our issues all laid out and have called with no response. It is extremely disappionting that a business would conduct it self in this manor, no feedback, no explanation, no attempt at rectifying the situation.

Very very disappointed with services from cosmic catering!!

Used them for a wedding this summer. Monique was easy to work with leading up to the event, we used the standard bridal buffet menu. On the day of setup, Monique repeatedly said to my friends setting up: "I have never seen so many linens used at a wedding before". All we had were tables for guests, and about 5 tables around the perimeter for cake, activities, etc. Clearly an over-exaggeration. Regardless, not something you would say to the client.

During the beginning of the reception, we stated we were running on schedule. A few of the speeches went a little long and Monique walked briskly back to her team at the buffet and shouted "Kill the heat. They are running behind." Again, not something you would say in the first place let alone with a raised voice in front of guests.

The cutlery was super cheap and had many stains on them. I guess there's a reason why it comes free with the meal.

Definitely wouldn't recommend them nor use them again for any event.

I've used Cosmic Catering twice before for events. I had no problem recommending them for our daughter and son-in-law's wedding. How things have changed over the past few years with their professionalism. Sadly, I would never recommend them again. Contracts were changed, thankfully our son-in-law deals in contracts on a regular basis, or they would have been charged more money than originally stated. But what made me sad was mostly due to the attitude of Monique herself. The tones in which she spoke, previous conversations of what we needed to be done the day of that had take place, were like they never happened. Number of linens required, money payments due, just lots of little things that started to add up, that shouldn't be an issue the day of the event Specific instructions were given, we were told, "not a problem, we do this all the time, it will only take 10 minutes". The day of the wedding, in an abrupt tone, "this will take us 45 minutes to set up now"...what happened to 10 minutes when I asked if this was a feasible option? Head table, no cutlery, again due to the specific instructions given beforehand, as the Mother of the Bride, I inquired what the head table were to eat with? "I don't know what you did with the cutlery?"...I reminded her that the head table was part of the wedding ceremony and therefore had no place settings on it. Standing there arguing with the customer, not a good idea. When it came to serving and carving, not a problem. Food was fine. However, once the tables were cleared off, not one of her staff members could be found. They all left the venue - one gentlemen showed up at 11:30 to finish collecting the rest of Cosmic's dishes. Needless to say, the service from when I used them back in 2005 and again in 2006 has changed drastically.

I chose cosmic catering because I had been to weddings in the past where they had catered, and the food had always been great (along with the brides saying good things). We hired Monique for our wedding because she had great prices (and because of our past experience) and honestly, I was disappointed. There were many sketchy business tactics used, including offering us "gifts" such as $200 off our wedding if we put down a $1000 deposit 6 months before our wedding (but it HAD to be cash - which she claimed was some sort of bank issue - as you could guess, I have my suspicions about that). She also repeatedly suggested my parents give her a tip at the wedding reception, since I had delegated them to pay the final balance to her (they already were not impressed with her before this point). Most importantly, the food we received was not as specified. The veggies were supposed to be in a yummy sauce and they were completely plain, and she ran out of salmon half way through (she claimed that its impossible to order enough salmon - um, hello! Order more if you keep having this problem!), and the potatoes were extremely salty. Also, the linens were full of creases and seemed cheap. I was hoping they would look a bit nicer. Monique was friendly enough and helpful leading up to the wedding, and due to her years of experience she knew the quirks of our venue which was great, but the food the day of was a definite disappointment. I would not recommend her to anyone.

This catering company was fabulous! They helped me design my seating area for the reception. They delivered the linens early so that we could choose whether we wanted round or oblong tables and made so many helpful suggestions to make my wedding simply wonderful! All of my guests complimented me on the food and my new husband and I found the food absolutely delicious! I would definitely recommend Cosmic and will use them again without hesitation!
Thanks Monique & Maggie!
Sincerely,
Brent & Tammy!
