We used creative cuisine to cater our wedding and they did an absoultely phenomenal job! The food was delicious and hot and everyone raved about it! Our staff went above and beyond what was expected of them. One of our servers even ended up helping me clean myself up after our cake cutting haha! But seriously these guys made everything go off without a hitch, we were so impressed! We worked with Tiffany and she did an amazing job working with us and handling all of our needs.

Great business to work with! Awesome customer service and was great to work with for the wedding! The food was yummy, they were extremely professional, and we have no complaints! It was a tad on the pricey side, but we just altered some things to cut costs and it worked out. Great quality of food, rentals, and service.

As a fellow wedding professional, I have had the opportunity to work with several catering companies over the years. Creative Cuisine is an excellent choice for all of your catering needs. Their food is delicious and their staff is so knowledgeable. One of their chefs was even featured on "Chef's in the City!"

I was easily influenced to hire this catering company since I worked for them while I was in college. I know I may seem biased but I did quote with other catering companies and I knew I was getting a better deal and the type of service I was expecting with Creative. I worked with John Sowder and he was the best person to handle my event. He is very laid back and open to ideas and was easy to get in touch with. He would always respond within a few hours to all inquires, which was great for me! He constantly quoted and re-quoted for me, until my mom was even satisfied. We did food stations which everyone loved. The food turned out great. The venue looked amazing, they did the table runners, hung paper lanterns, placed name cards, and more. The staff were friendly and efficient, especially Sam. I have great respect for what they do (since I did it too, at one point) and they helped to make our wedding wonderful. I would highly recommend Creative.

We had our reception in our backyard and Creative Cuisine provided everything we needed for our special day. The food was delicious and in proper portions. We selected mostly finger foods and small bite items and they were all yummy and fresh. We also arranged for our tables and chair rentals. They had a great selection of linen colors and table tops and a range of chairs to fit every budget. We liked them so much, we contracted them again to handle our friend's wedding a month later that was also hosted at our house.

Creative Cuisine did a great job on my daughter's wedding. If I could give extra stars for flexibility, I would. My daughter and her husband had very specific ideas and Creative Cuisine bent over backwards trying to accommodate them. Also, the coordinator, Terri, was just terrific. She gave us all kinds of good ideas, and she was totally professional. The bottom line was that the food was terrific. The wedding guests all commented on how great it was. The staff working the event itself were great, too. They were very helpful and cheerful. I would absolutely use them again, and I would recommend them highly.

First and foremost, Terri is a great asset to Creative and I hope you get the chance to work with her. Beyond the benefit of her significant experience, she has an innate knack of understanding the substance and theme of our wedding and getting that turned into real (and affordable) design options including some intangibles that we'd not considered. The CC staff was also great the day of, including Rhonda who managed to be both crazy efficient and happy at the same time.

On our budget, we went with a buffet versus plated dinner for the reception, and I thought the chicken (with corn salsa) and salmon entrees could have been more flavorful. But the appetizers were great, the pies were outstanding, and the beverage service was a hit. CC had good suggestions, and accomodated two different signature drinks and added very stylish touches to both.

Their pricing was on par with their competition; we had quotes from three vendors of the same size. Also note when planning your reception: having it close to caterer is a plus.

Terri from Creative Cuisine was wonderful. This company gave us the best quote and we loved their food. All of our guests also loved the food. We served a steak/chicken combo with cheesy potatoes and asparagus. Our vegetarian friends ate a spinach tortellini which is so delicious. They made sure everything ran smoothly and our night was perfect because of all of their help. They offer tasting events at their facilities multiple times per year where you can taste a variety of their menu options- free of charge. Definitely check this company out!

We were appreciative to be able to provide items that would normally be part of the catering package. This was a great $$ saver. Also, we provided all the alcohol, mixes, cups, napkins, etc. Creative only provided the bar tenders - what a savings! Terri from Creative did the flowers for the entire wedding, this was convenient to have one less business on the list. Simple instructions were provided to us on how to organize and what to provide to Creative so their job could be completed to our satisfaction.

The CC staff was extremely polite and professional at our wedding, and were more than happy to accommodate any of our requests. We weren't extremely pleased with the food, as it was not cooked properly, however we had selected low priced options as the food was not our biggest concern. I personally use CC for corporate catering, and have had very positive experiences!
