It was an absolute pleasure to work with everyone at Creative Catering. They were so very easy to work with. My many emails were answered the same day. Super organized, super friendly, oh and the food was wonderful. Simply delicious! The servers were attentive, well groomed and dressed. I have already given their contact information out to several and will continue to do so. Also if I have a need, I will definitely not hesitate to use them again.

They delivered on everything that I requested and they gave a lot of value for the price. All the guests commented on how great the food was. Very professional staff and exceptional attention to detail.

Creative Catering of Virginia was wonderful to work with! They were so easy to set meetings up with, and were always organized and professional during all communication and meetings. The day of our wedding we didn't worry about anything, because we knew all the details would be taken care of. The food and service was GREAT throughout the whole night! We tried two complimentary meals after we booked with them, and they packed up two boxes for us when we left our wedding night. I recommend their services to anyone planning an event and looking for quality, professional catering!

Creative Catering was the absolute best and most affordable catering choice for our wedding! Bonnie worked with us from the start to help us select all our elements, and always responded to our emails within a day or two at most. We had a lot of questions over the course of planning, and all of them were answered promptly and completely. Not to mention the food at our wedding was awesome, as were the bar services!

The food was AMAZING!! Everyone loved it! The staff was very professional and flexible. They even brought by platters of appetizers for myself (the bride) and my husband (the groom). They had one staff member that was very attentive to myself and the groom while the remaining staff seemed to focus of the the rest of the guest. I would recommend Creative Catering for any event, or suggest their restaurant for people to eat at for a night on the town.

Creative Catering did a wonderful job catering our April 2014 wedding. We worked with Jennifer, who was always very responsive, helpful, and profressional. She always emailed me back very quickly and was always happy to help! We had BBQ sliders and chicken tenders during cocktail hour, and the cajun beef filet and shrimp and grits for our entrees. It was delicious. We have received so many compliments about the food. Many it is hard to have well-seasoned and tasty food at weddings because of the amount of found that has to be made. This was not the case. All of the food was very flavorful and just as delicious as what we taste tested. Creative Catering set up and broke down all tables and chairs and even set up our ceremony chairs and flipped them for the reception. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone :) Thank you Creative Catering of VA!

Thank you for a seamless wedding, Creative! If you have the option, make sure you work with the sweet-as-can-be Bonnie as you put together your service options and menu! She was so attentive to all of my concerns and made me immediately relaxed about any worries! Allan, the events manager, was great at a logistics meeting at my venue and also ensured that everything would go smoothly. Also, we cannot thank the amazing AMY enough who managed our event that evening. She was on top of everything and communicated every single detail to me! Absolute perfection! The groom and I had a couple unique requests and they still pulled off everything. They were even a huge help in cleaning up décor at the end of the night. Can't forget to mention the food! Guests have been mentioning how wonderful the menu was. That combined with the food service, bartending, general coordination, and price.. You could not pick a better team to cater your wedding! Thank you for putting up with a very anxious bride and making her worries melt away!

We used Creative Catering of Virginia for our daughter's wedding reception, and they were wonderful. All of the CCV staff members were extremely responsive and willing to answer questions, and their main priority was our satisfaction. We received many, many compliments on the food, and I had some of our wedding reception guests say that it was the best "wedding food" they had ever had. I would highly recommend Creative Catering of Virginia for any special event, and I plan to use them again in the future.

Bonnie assisted me with my catering and she was fabulous. She helped me with so many little details and working out the best options for my wedding. The food was really good and I received many positive responses from my guests. Bonnie made sure that we had some of our appetizers served during cocktail hour waiting since we were doing pictures. She also made sure that the staff had us to go boxes as we were so busy dancing all night that we didn't get time to eat too much. Everything was cooked well. Nothing was over/under cooked. We had for apps, the shrimp cocktail served in shot glasses, the pecan encrusted chicken satay and crab cakes. We did the passed appetizer option and that was a hit. For our dinner we chose the salmon (the modified it to our tastes and that was a nice touch) and the peppercorn encrusted tenderloin (we didn't do the carving station as it added more that we wanted to spend to the cost and were worried about the tenderloin but it came out perfect). We did the mashed/sweet potato bar and that was delicious. Grilled vegetables also turned out really good. The food was fabulous and Bonnie did a wonderful job helping us. The serving staff was also very attentive, professional and made sure everything went perfect. Thanks to Creative Catering they made my wedding day delicious.

Questions asked on rating did not reflect my problems the food was ice cold and I did not get one item I choose correct. But the staff was great!! Make sure you go over the food items by e-mail to ensure the items you want are correct. Check and make sure your bartender stays the time you want them to stay. I tried to get the left overs and they said, NO it was for health reasons. Thank god I made chicken and ham salad so they and the quest staying the night could eat before bed.

Our family could not be more than happy with the outcome of the service we received from Creative Catering. They were on POINT! The staff was wonderful and the person in charge, Alan, was amazing! Thank you so much for everything and making this day very beautiful for my daughter. Also want to thank Nicole. It was a pleasure working with her. Always there when I needed her and went above an beyond to make this day so very special. The service we received was EXCEPTIONAL!!! We also received many great compliments regarding the food...they loved it! Like I told my daughter, the guests will remember the beautiful bride and groom but mostly the food that they consume. Our selection was fabulous and very reasonably priced. If I had to have an event as big as this, we will definitely use your services again.

CCVA went above and beyond my expectations. I honestly feel I received more than my moneys worth and would highly recommend them. My guest bragged about the food all night "the best wedding food they have ever had" and "the best chicken ever". The staff was very friendly and helpful. They were flexible with my crazy family and the rain that forced us inside for a few moments when they were flipping my room. CCVA made my wedding planning a breeze.

I recently hired Creative Catering for my son's wedding. We only had a few weeks to plan it. Up until the very end, I was determined to do most of the cooking myself. About 5 days before the wedding I finally realized I needed help, and in a hurry!! I contacted Nicole and with-in 2 days we had the menu planned with-in the budget that I had to work with and it look the weight of the world off of my shoulders. I used them as a drop-off service. They were on time and very professional. Best thing is every single dish was a hit!!! The food was perfect and plentiful for the amount of guests we planned for. The company I work for used Creative Catering for our 2012 Christmas party and a recent party in June of this year to welcome a new Upper Management employee. My step-son is getting married next summer. There is no doubt in my mind - I will be calling Nicole again!!! :-D

CCVA recently provided catering for my daughter's wedding. The whole staff was a pleasure to work with. Nicole was responsive and extremely helpful. The food was delicious and plentiful. Appetizers were top quality. The bartenders remembered guests and their drinks (this was a big hit). I would definitely use CCVA again and will recommend their services to anyone.

Creative Catering of VA (CCVA) went above and beyond expectations. It was a pleasure to work with Bonnie Vautrot. She was kind, professional, understanding, and easy to work with. CCVA delivered DELICIOUS food...guest were still talking about the food, specially the short ribs a week later. The service was phenomenal. Unfortunately, it rained on our special day, but CCVA did everything to accommodate sudden changes and did it all with a smile. We would HIGHLY recommend CCVA to be a part of your special day. You won't be let down.

Our food was absolutely amazing! We didn't have the traditional wedding food (chicken thighs instead of breasts, sausage with peppers and onions), and it was phenomenal. The different meal choices were extensive, and the price was great! The tasting included a mock set-up of our wedding venue, all of the different foods we requested, and as many people there as we would like. The owners were two of the funniest people I have ever met, and two of the most professional. I would not have done anything different with the food. The owners run Orapax, a Greek restaurant in Norfolk. Their food is amazing.

Great food and wonderful customer service! Creative Catering of VA was absolutely wonderful to work with. The event staff were super responsive to emails, answering all of my questions quickly. Quick responses are a stressed out bride's best friend. Lisa was wonderful during our 2 week prior walkthrough at the venue even helping to design the layout of the room. We had 2 different tastings and each time the food was wonderful making it very hard for us to decide on the menu. The menu we finally decided on was FANTASTIC! All of our guests raved about the quality of the food and there was plenty of food for guests to go back for seconds (which MANY did). The catering staff was unobtrusive in gathering empty plates from guests and were quick to provide any needed service. They also took the time to focus on my husband and i to make sure that we had drinks in our hands and food on our plates! The bartending service was wonderful. We provided our own alcohol, but they made sure it was nice and chilled for guests. I would recommend Creative Catering of VA in a heartbeat!!

The food was FANTASTIC! I've tasted a lot of wedding food at other people's weddings, and unfortunately it usually tastes cheap. Creative Catering provided delicious food, excellent service, and staff members took care of my husband and I all night making sure we got plenty to eat and never had an empty drink! When the night was over, they packed up ALL of the leftover food and stored it in our refrigerator for us! I would absolutely recommend them to any bride looking for yummy food and friendly service!

Creative Catering did the food for my wedding on 6/22/12 and they did a fantastic job! They did a vegetarian buffet for us with some delicious stuffed portobello mushrooms and a mock chicken rolotini with alfredo sauce. The sides were grilled summer veggies and oven roasted rosemary potatoes. Phenomenal! I highly recommend them! Delicious food, and great company to work with!

Our ceremony and reception were both at Norfolk Botanical Gardens. There was a little miscommunication between my rep at CCVA and the manager the night of the event, regarding number and placement of bars. It was decided at my month before meeting there would be two bars, one inside the reception and one out in the gazebos for cocktail hour. On the day of the event, it was set up with only a bar outside, however after minimal discussion, two bars were set up. Everything with food went smoothly, I would have preferred for the cake pieces to be left out longer than they were. I did have people tell me later they were unable to pick up cake because it was taken away too quickly. Clean up and set up was easy and the staff was helpful and courteous.

We met CCVA at a Bridal Show and knew right away we wanted to work with them. They were nice, friendly, and had great food. Our catering contact, Amanda, responded very promptly to all emails and questions, and was so helpful and professional. Our food was delicious (sadly, like most brides, I didn't have a chance to eat much) but my guests RAVED about it. They offer you several bar choices - we opted for customer-supplied bar so we could keep our leftovers. (PS - Speaking of leftovers, CCVA boxes up your leftover food and sends it home with you - not a lot of companies will do that for you!) My only "complaint" (if you can call it that) was that the bartenders didn't know how to make our signature drink, and seemed a little flustered during the first part of the reception. Another bartender took over and everything was smooth from that point on. I was SO HAPPY with CCVA start to finish. Highly recommended :)

Creative Catering of Virginia makes great food! We had a wedding with 130 guests plus children. Their office is located inside of a small restaurant but don’t let that deceive you. At the tasting we got treated like we were in a 5 star restaurant. Then we got to critique and make requests for how we wanted our meal tweaked (we wanted the steak cooked a little more for our guests). I am here to tell you that even though they were preparing for many more people the food tasted just the way we wanted it to include the minor adjustments. They were flexible and accommodated what WE wanted to happen and how it happened at our reception (there are people out there that want to make it theirs). The wait staff was courteous and professional. The table service was prompt and none of our guests had any complaints. Our friends and family raved on the flavors. If you are planning any special event check them out. You can’t beat the price and still get the same quality! (believe me I looked)

Creative Catering.. Delicious!!!!!!!!!! They were included in a package that we purchased. The food was awesome! I wish that we would have eaten more, but my husband and I were too busy to eat :)
Everyone that I worked with at Creative were super friendly and very accomodating! I will definetly be going to Orapax more often (they also own that restaurant!)
Once the reception was over, they wrapped our leftover food up and sent it home with my parents.. But they did make sure that my husband and I had food to take back to our hotel room that night. That was great!
I would definetly check them out if you are looking for friendly service and awesome food!

Food was great! The staff was very kind. Everyone loved the pork and crab cakes. Throughout the planning process everything went well. Our rep was a great help and answered all my questions in a timely matter. The only hiccup we had was that we were under the impression the our bar tab (as the bride and groom) would be charged to us the next day. (we had a cash bar for the evening) well we found out at 930 (30 mins before the night was over) that we had to have cash to pay our tab. Well we also had put our wedding party and parents on the tab as well so you can imagine it was a hefty bill. and of course my groom nor I had that much cash on us. Luckily my father didn't mind running out to the atm to go get us cash. This was a common misunderstanding but just for the heads up to future brides and grooms...make sure some one has cash! Overall our night was great! and I would recommend this caterer!

Creative Catering did a great job for our wedding. The food was delicious and was exactly what we wanted and had experienced at the taste testing prior to the wedding. Overall, Creative Catering is a great caterer to work with for you wedding at a great price. Just make sure to keep prior correspondence between yourself and the employees. At times, because I was usually contacted by different employees, things were added to our bill that I had been told were complimentary. However, after expressing this with Creative Catering, they took those charges right off.

We hired Creative Catering for our wedding and the food was beyond delicious! We chose the following for our menu:
Appetizers - Chesapeake Bay mini-crab cakes, thai chicken salad
Entrees - Slow-braised bone-in short ribs with Guinness gravy (huuuge hit), Teriyaki glazed salmon (a fave)
Sides - Parmesan crusted tomatoes (outstanding) and oven roasted potatoes

Not having tasted the teriyaki salmon and thai chicken salad, we took a chance on offering that to our guests. It was one of the best decisions we made! We had guests going back for more and raving about the food even days after.

Great service and great value!

Our guests LOVED everything on the buffet that Creative Catering of Virginia (CCVA) prepared for us! Their food is amazing, especially the chicken parmesan! There was lots leftover after the wedding, and CCVA packed it all up for our family and friends to enjoy throughout the week. We received some incorrect information from our initial contact (who we later found out had already put her notice in when we talked to her) who told us we didn't need to discuss any details sooner than two months before the wedding. An earlier meeting would have been very beneficial for the planning process, but once we contacted CCVA again, we were given a new contact, Amanda, who was FANTASTIC! She set us up for a tasting where my parents and I were served a complete meal of all our choices. No small bite-sized bits here! They let us enjoy the meal in their restuarant, Orapax, and afterwards sat down with us to discuss any changes we desired and service details. I left the meeting feeling very good and confident about how things would go on the wedding day. Amanda was quick to respond to any follow up questions we had, and on the day of the event, the staff was extremely quick with set-up and tear-down. This was a huge help, as we did most of the decorating ourselves. CCVA did an amazing job at our wedding and we would happily reccommend them to anyone!

The food that we picked out was a hit with everyone at the wedding! The chicken parmesan was the most favorite, but the shrimp scampi was my personal favorite. As far as appetizers go, the bacon wrapped scallops were amazing! I don't think that there were any left by the end of the night. All of the servers were delightful and very very helpful. We had such a lovely evening thanks to the catering services. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to have an event catered.

The food was simply amazing! We got so much feedback from our guests about how great the food was. We had actually even been told by more than one person that it was the best "wedding food" he/she had ever eaten! The pricing was excellent and the catering company was great about fulfilling special requests to make everything just the way we wanted it. I recommend the garlic smashed potatoes and the chicken parmesan!! The only small issue I had was a bit of communication breakdown where my mother was attempting to get everything in line for the beverages. She had a difficult time getting return phone calls and actual answers to her questions....which definitely added some extra stress to the planning process. Great company, great food, and great people!

CCVA's food and service on the day of was amazing! The food tasted like it was at our tasting and we were very happy with our supervisor at the wedding, Allen. We had staff bring us food during the cocktail hour while we were taking pictures since we would not have been able to try it otherwise- such a good idea! We originally signed with them because I thought their pricing was good and I really clicked with the sales person. She left and I was assigned a new person that turned into 3 new people through a few month period. I felt a little lost in the mix for a bit and wasn't originally comfortable that all of my details and planning with the previous person went through the pipeline, but when Bonnie stepped in she assured me that it was all taken care of and in my file. She spent a while talking on the phone with me going over every detail before the wedding and filling in any holes. Bonnie was very responsive and helpful in those last few weeks of planning when she took over our wedding. The catering was a huge, huge deal for us and it was so important to me that both the food AND service was good. They were exactly like I had originally thought which is why I'd definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a hardworking team and delicious food.

My only complaint is against their bartenders. They were given a recipe for your typical Mojito, which called for (and we provided) club soda, instead they used water (yuck!).

With the allure of a Preferred Vendor discount to entice us to book our venue, Creative Catering was at the top of our list. That, combined with a friend's recommendation and Creative Catering's quick response to my inquiry during the Christmas season helped us decide to book them. Although our contact changed about halfway through the process, both women were extremely kind and professional. My fiance (and family and wedding coordinator) enjoyed the tasting process, and the wide variety of food Creative Catering offered for weddings. I liked that our contact asked about our wedding colors so the company could coordinate the buffet table linens--day of, they looked fantastic. My one complaint--and it's a fairly big one--is some of the lack of attention to detail. While I was pleased with our overall experience with Creative Catering, a few things got lost in translation (like our cocktail hour that was supposed to be set up outside but nobody seemed to know about day-of so it didn't happen). That being said, I would still recommend Creative Catering, as their food is fantastic, they know what they're doing, and their prices are very competitive.

Overall, I was very pleased with Creative Catering of Virginia. There was a bit of a rocky patch for awhile when the contact point I had with the company changed three different times. For awhile, I didn't have anyone to contact at all! It was so frustrating!

However, when Bonnie took over managing my wedding, things dramatically improved. I finally had a person who could answer my questions, and she promised me that the wedding would proceed flawlessly.

I have to say, it did. People are still coming up to me and telling me how tasty the food was. (I'm ashamed to admit, I have no idea--I couldn't eat anything that night!)

I'm happy with how the food turned out. Creative Catering worked with my venue, the Norfolk Botanical Gardens, and so that was pretty flawless. The food service was fast and efficient, so no one was waiting forever to get a plate.

Bonnie was great, and I would recommend CCVA to a friend.

We used Creative Catering of VA to cater our rehearsal dinner at my parents house. The food was DELICIOUS and Crystal was so easy to work with. I will definately use this company again. The only reason I did not score 5 stars is because they forgot to bring one of my appetizers which wasn't that big of a deal. When I spoke to them a few days later about it they apologized and refunded me for it.

We Loved dealing with Creative Creating of Virginia!! Everything was perfect from beginning (up to 11 months prior to wedding date) til this week ( 5 days after the weeding)!!!
Their value is awesome!!
The tasting was a pick up to taste the food at home and they gave us food for 4 guests!

The food was very good but a little cold for my taste. They did a great job decorating and let me leave things in my venues catering kitchen so no one was late for my actual wedding. The only negatives I have are that the staff asked me too many questions the day off and it was a little pricey because I had a smaller wedding.

They were truly a pleasure to work with; however, for the price, the display was less than mediocre. The food was also not very hot, it was warm.

The major complaint I have is we ran out of food at our reception and rather early. No one had “heaping” plates of food by any stretch, some not much at all. Even more frustrating was the fact I had paid for a certain number of people (125) and had 18 people not show up – and STILL ran out of food, some of the items prior to people making their first trip through the buffet line. I was assured there was no need to order anymore food as there would be plenty. It is quite frustrating to have been repeatedly assured that the food included in my per head price tag would be more than enough when in fact it was completely insufficient. Also, I had people tell me they went for cupcakes and there were none left. Which is quite upsetting because I came home with cupcakes still boxed up from the bakery. I noticed when I received the final invoice the reception time was ending at 1030.The reason this came as such a surprise was on two different occasions we discussed the timeline and planned accordingly with what was discussed, which was the reception ending at 11.When I asked about this, I was told the price quoted was for 4 hours. I was told it would be an additional charge to extend the extra 30 minutes. This would not have been an issue if it had been expressed in any of our prior meetings or conversations. I contacted the catering company a couple days after to express my concerns.Their response to me was “sorry to hear your day was anything less than perfect and that amount of food does not usually run out at weddings and the cupcakes were boxed up at the end of the night”.They didn’t seem to care. On another note, I received many compliments about how great the bartender was. Also, there was one specific staff member who made sure the groom and I got a plate of food and checked on us periodically to make sure we were doing ok.

Misty,
We completely understand your distress and are incredibly sorry to hear your day was anything less than perfect. As stated in the e-mail we sent to you, we looked into the amount of food served during your wedding, and we provided almost 2lbs of food per person for the 125 guests. That amount of food does not usually run out at weddings and we know how disappointing that must have been. We are also sorry to hear that your guests did not all get to enjoy a cupcake. The cupcakes were all left out on display for anyone to have until the end of the event, at which point they were removed from the tier and boxed up for you to take home. During the planning process, we make every effort possible to be clear and transparent because we know how overwhelming the wedding planning process can be for brides and their families. We sincerely appreciate your feedback and wish you nothing but the best.

I was very disappointed with the fact I never received a signed agreement, receipt of paid in full, as a result of that I was informed on the day of the reception that CC was going to breakdown at 9 pm and taking the bartenders with them.
When I had a signed contract with my first daughter's reception, it was all spelled out in the contract, times, location, description of everything. Irene was very professional and everything went smoothly.
I am sorry but I was not very happy with Amanda and her associates. Unfortunately I will not recommend CC to our friends.
The food was delicious and the help was great, but the stress brought on the day of the event causes me to give poor ratings.

No! No! No! They gave us the WRONG dish at our wedding. When I tried to talk to the owner he said "everyone had fun at your wedding, get over it!" So rude! We went with them because they gave a coupon for a free champaign toast, but come the wedding day they forgot the champaign and glasses! TERRIBLE!!! WOULD NOT USE!

Creative Catering of Virginia responded with the following comments:

Allena,
I would like to address your issues - once again....

1. You never presented us with a coupon for a free "champagne" toast . Nor did you discuss this as an option for your event with your coordinator.

2. You had a customer supplied bar which means you obtained the ABC License and you were responsible for the purchase of all Alcoholic beverages including the "CHAMPAGNE". ONLY 1 ABC LICENSE IS ALLOWED TO BE IN USE at an event. Therefor if you actually were expecting a champagne toast, then I would think you would have provided it.

3. After you insisted at the event that we were to supply the champagne & in order to help make your event run smooth we had the Champagne deliver to your event and PROVIDED this service for you - AT NO CHARGE.

4. "YOUR WRONG DISH" You contracted for the Sweet Potato "VEGAN" Haystacks per our menu. This is ONE of the entrees that you DID receive at your event but now you are saying you didn't.

5. I know that your goal was to receive money back from all your vendors but we did nothing wrong - we actually gave you over $3,500.00 in food and services at NO CHARGE.

We strive to make every event a success by working with our clients and sending a Banquet Event Order for their review & approval 10 days before the event.

We regret that you were disappointed with the service that you received and wish you all the best....
