Then the food was incredible, matching the tasting 100%! My husband and I could have not been more pleased with what turned out to be the best wedding we ever attended....and it was our daughter's! Thank you Culinary Arts Catering and thank you Maggie! Read less

Maggie made our dreams come true for our only daughter's wedding reception. We got so many comments on how fabulous the food was and trust me we had some tough people to please! The staff was very professional to our guests as well as to us. Maggie made sure that our wedding party had Hors D Oeuvres before being announced at the reception. Not only did she serve them but she stayed and helped me bussle my daughter's gown, and trust me I really ended up needing help with that. She took the bride and grooms dinner order, and made sure they had everything they wanted. Also, my daughter was not feeling well most of the reception, and Maggie was always beside us getting water, ice, anything she could think of to make the bride feel comfortable and better while also attending to her staff and our guests. She even offered to go and purchase coconut water for us. Now who does that for people they barely know?! There were so many extra things she did for us and helped make everything go smoothly, one would have thought she was a family friend instead of an employee. We could not have imagined that she would have been so special and great for us! If I could give her a raise, I would! Absolutely loved her.

We had several compliments on the great taste of all of our food. We loved working with Maggie Weiss through our planning, she was professional, helpful, and very quick to respond. The day of we didn't have to worry about a thing and Maggie made sure food was brought to us and our drinks were always refilled. We loved working with Culinary Arts and would highly recommend them!

The caterer did a great job. The food was delicious even on a budget. They did a beautiful job with set up. I loved that one of the waiters had plates made for me and my now husband- extremely helpful on the chaotic day. I also loved that they were a one stop shop- food, wait staff, bartenders, etc. I was able to sit down and discuss every option and was comfortable with everything months before wedding.

It was a pleasure and a delight to work with CAC and Rebecca! All our worries and headaches dissapeared once we started working with CAC!! Super responsive and flexible. Food was great and presentation and professionalism was absolutely awesome.
I really feel like CAC and Rebecca saved our wedding, even with last minute rental solutions!

only thing is that wish they were open a little later, getting there after work before they closed was a challenge, but that is only semi issue we had. Thank you again!!

Culinary Arts is where to go if you want non-traditional wedding food and hate the typical chafing dish set up. They crafted a delicious and unique menu that was absolutely reflective of my husband and I. I absolutely hate the typical silver chafing dishes - so Culinary Arts' BEAUTIFUL hammered copper dishes were a PERFECT way to be functional while also ADDING to my overall decor! They are meticulous about their presentation and have a million ideas for ways to present their delicious food. For instance we had a risotto bar and typically you see something like that in a martini glass. I wasn't loving that idea as my wedding was a "farm to market" theme and very fun/cosy - martini glasses would have been out of place. They suggested adorable mini-crock dish with handles. It fit the theme perfectly and again added to the decor! I couldn't have been more happy with the quality of the food, beautiful presentation and overall service of the entire staff - from banquet manager to bartenders. Everyone's primary goal was to bring my dream wedding to fruition!

The service at the wedding was flawless, the staff so quick and seamless you hardly knew they were there. And, of course, the food was incredible. All of our guests couldn't stop talking about how great everything tasted. I will definitely recommend them to anyone I know planning an event. And if there is ever any other reason for us to have catering again, I know who I am going with!

We learned about Culinary Arts from our venue's preferred caterer list. After meeting with several vendors to determine the best fit for our wedding, we knew that Culinary Arts was at the top of our list hands down. The food was delicious, the price was affordable, but what really stood out to me was the phenomenal customer service.

The chef listened to our needs and made menu suggestions that were beyond our dreams, but within our budget. Vivian, the manager, sent me a proposal after our tasting, and I saw that she made a note about me not eating olives. I didn't tell her that I don't like olives, but she noticed that I picked them out of my salad. Just knowing that she paid attention to small details without me saying anything gave me comfort and sealed the deal.

Several of our wedding guests told us how much they liked the food, especially the lasagna. The servers were very courteous, and they did not make a lot of noise that might distract the audience from what was happening.

I have to say that the guests from our wedding reception are STILL talking about how great your food and concept was for our wedding! That's exactly what we wanted- We didn't want them to remember the dress or the cake....but the important thing in life- FOOD! Also, our venue made a point to contact us the next day just to tell us how professional, elegant, and elite your catering service was at the venue. They are really picky, as they should be, about who comes into their historical building, and they couldn't stop saying great things about you. That's important to us as well. 5 star experience!

Our wedding food was absolutely amazing... delicious AND beautifully and elegantly presented - Chef Yossi made the perfect suggestions for how to glam it up a little bit, and we couldn't have been more pleased with how everything looked and tasted! Plus, the staff was top notch - everyone kept going on about how they never waited for a passed hors d'oeurves or drink, never had to ask for more water, the staff were on top of everything - which is exactly what I wanted for my guests. And finally, I can't say enough about the day-off coordination that Sarah and Catherine provided... they fixed broken stuff, got event space cleaned up that they shouldn't have had to (vendor dropped ball!) and made sure everything looked gorgeous and went smoothly. I'm not interested in getting married again!, but may just have to invent another grand celebration so I can work with CAC again!

The food was delicious, and they were happy to work with us to make our signature cocktail (blueberry vodka lemonade), even serving in Mason jars, which went with the venue & theme.

Culinary Art Catering was the best decision we made for our wedding, hands down. We got married at the Filter Building in Dallas, which is a completely DIY venue. Vivian Morgan with Culinary Art was spectacular in helping us arrange every detail, from napkin color to menu choices. On the day of, Vivian and her team made sure everything was set up correctly and their professionalism and can-do attitude let the day go off without a hitch, and I didn't need to hire a wedding coordinator. The chef and his team proceeded to serve our guests some of the best brunch food we've ever eaten! We had people raving about the food, even after the event. I would 100% recommend Culinary Art to any couple getting married in Dallas. Go to one of their tastings and chats with Vivian and you'll see what I mean!

Hi Vivian,
Shannon and I just wanted to say a huge "Thank You" to you, as well as the rest of the Culinary Arts Catering staff. The wedding was amazing and I can't tell you how many great comments we had regarding the food and service. First, I was very surprised that Yossi actually showed up himself to direct the staff......I didn't expect that and it was a very pleasant surprise to know that he puts that much effort into making sure his customers are taken care of. I can't tell you how impressed I was with him and his staff regarding the set up. I spent about 5 minutes with him confirming the arrangements and his crew went to work and got everything done with no problems whatsoever. The food was AMAZING!!!! We got SO many compliments on how good EVERYTHING was, from beginning to end. BTW, thank you so much for the suggestion on the different flavors for the fountains....everyone loved it! At the end of the night, your staff was so sweet to pack up the extra food for us to take with us......I'll tell you not a bit of it went to waste! Shannon and I actually left before they started cleaning up, but our friends told us that your staff did an absolute amazing job of cleaning everything up.....in fact, she said it was cleaner after they got done then it was before!! The entire staff was so nice and friendly........we couldn't have asked for a better caterer! Thank you so much for your efforts...and please pass this on to Yossi and the rest of the staff. Thank you for making it a perfect night!

We will definitely be passing your name on to anyone and everyone that needs catering! Thank you again!

Not having been to a Culinary Art event or tasted their food, I wasn't quite sure what I would get when I booked them. All I knew was that their responsiveness, flexibility, creativity, and adaptability to my budget set them apart from other caterers I'd been speaking with. Closer to the wedding, the tasting with the chef (who is SUCH a character) really put me at ease. I knew then I was going to get a great product. (I should also note that I'm a food blogger, so the menu and quality of the food was a high priority in my planning process.) Fast forward to the wedding day, and the food was even better than I remembered. I still receive countless compliments on how delicious and original the food was. I was also very impressed with their staff - they didn't miss a beat.

I also decided to hire Vivian, their sales manager, to be my wedding coordinator on the day. Her fee is completely reasonable and her calm, cool, and collected persona is ideal for stressed-out brides and parents! She was organized, accomodating, attentive (my husband and I actual ATE at our wedding thanks to Vivian!), and kept the evening running smoothly. I even received compliments about how nicely the evening ran - never heard that one before!

To make a long story short, I am beyond thrilled that I hired Culinary Art. Whereas initially I thought I was stepping into the unknown, I now know that Culinary Art was by far one of the best decisions I made for my wedding.

Closer to the wedding, the tasting with the chef (who is SUCH a character) really put me at ease. I knew then I was going to get a great product. (I should also note that I'm a food blogger, so the menu and quality of the food was a high priority in my planning process.) Fast forward to the wedding day, and the food was even better than I remembered. I still receive countless compliments on how delicious and original the food was. I was also very impressed with their staff - they didn't miss a beat.

I also decided to hire Vivian, their sales manager, to be my wedding coordinator on the day. Her fee is completely reasonable and her calm, cool, and collected persona is ideal for stressed-out brides and parents! She was organized, accomodating, attentive (my husband and I actual ATE at our wedding thanks to Vivian!), and kept the evening running smoothly. I even received compliments about how nicely the evening ran - never heard that one before!

To make a long story short, I am beyond thrilled that I hired Culinary Art. Whereas initially I thought I was stepping into the unknown, I now know that Culinary Art was by far one of the best decisions I made for my wedding. Read less

My husband and I could not have been more pleased with the catering provided by Culinary Arts for our wedding!!! They were professional, attentive to our needs, flexible, and the food was AMAZING! I am not joking when I say that we had a number of guests tell us later that it was the best filet they had ever had! I would highly, highly recommend Culinary Arts to anyone who needs an event caterer!

Culinary Art was great!!! They surpassed my expectations. Everything looked so elegant and organized. I got the “frugal” package and I was afraid that it was going to look frugal. It didn’t, everyone thought we paid so much. I was so happy that the food came out wonderful.
The only thing I didn’t like was the amount of tip I gave the wait staff. I thought I brought enough cash for all the vendors, but I wanted to give them so much more than what I did, I felt they went above and beyond.

We were working with a very tight budget and a very large guest list. Vivian understood the situation and was able to provide us with a great menu and all the extras (plates, glass ware, bar tenders etc..) to meet our needs and incredible prices. She was very accommodating and easy to work with. We spoke to many different caters and she was the only one that could stay within our budget and was even willing to work within that budget while providing the best service. All her staff that work the reception was very professional and keep the party going with no mishaps. We are extremely please with the professional atmosphere we received and would highly recommend this service to anyone.

Thank You Vivian

Vivian Morgan and Chef Yossi of Culinary Art Catering were key to the success of our daughter's wedding at Old Red on Sunday, May 29, 2011 - they could not have done a better job. The food was excellent and our guests are still talking about how they never had such good food at a wedding. The presentation was beautiful, the service was excellent and the linens and tableware were very nice. Once you contract with them, you do not need to worry about a thing - they listen, offer good ideas, and make sure that everything is exactly as you want it to be. They exceeded our expectations and provided excellent value for the money. I will recommend Culinary Art to anyone looking for a wonderful caterer.

"I wanted to personally thank you for the wonderful job you did in catering our daughters wedding!! When she said she wanted a "fun" wedding and "fun" desserts, you were the only caterers that had the menu to do that. EVERYONE at the wedding raved about how wonderful the desserts were (espeically the fried bananas and sundae bar). The bag lunches for the bridal party were delicious and a great value for the amount of food we got. Your staff was fantastic and kept everything going smoothly all night long. They were troopers when my daughter decided she wanted everyone to toast with Dr. Pepper(that was not the plan). They efficiently got one to every guest and the toasts went great. Thank you for your commitment to being the best!!! I will be recommending you to others looking for catering and will use you in the future for our catering needs."

My wedding was held at my parents home last November (2009) at first I was worried about having to contact all kinds of vendors for flowers and tables and chairs and everything else you can possibly imagine. Luckily I stumbled upon Culinary Arts Catering. They took care of everything! They even helped my come up with a plan of when we would be cutting the cake, having our first dance and coordenating the toasts. It was so much easier than trying to figure everything out by myself. I really appreciated the care and attention they gave to my wedding especially because it was only for 40 people, other caterers I contacted didn't seem to want to work with a small group. Not these guys. They are definitly the best in the business

This whole experience was made wonderful by the caterer and the individuals associated with the caterer that helped to host our wedding. It rained all day the day of our OUTSIDE wedding so when the caterers got there, we had to improvise everything. They immediately went to work structuring an alternative plan from a less than perfect setting. When one young lady fell and a whole piece of chocolate cake smashed into the white carpet, they came to the scene and had everything taken care of before anyone even knew anything had happened. Everyone associated with this organization from the office to the chef to the servers (who were MUCH more than servers -- I call them angels) were extremely professional and personable. I would recommend this caterer to everyone.

Culinary Art Catering was awesome. They really helped us out from the beginning to end to make it a fairly smooth progress. They did free tastings which is nice when you don't know exactly what you want. They flowed with our changes well and did additional tastings because we could not decide on the final appetizers. Everyone loved our food for our wedding! They fed my husband and I separately which was amazing! They brought the food to us so we could catch a break and eat. They also set aside appetizers for us since my groom didn't get to taste them before the wedding. They always made sure I had a drink and asked me several times if I needed anything.

I only had two complaints, overall. First, is that they are fairly pricey but we did ask for a lot. Lol Next, we had one point of contact and she was so good at immediately getting back to me but then that person changed jobs so I changed my point of contact. She was not very prompt with getting what we needed from her but she did better the closer it got to the wedding.

Overall, I would recommend them to anyone!! They were awesome and we got so many compliments on the food!!

The food was amazing. We only wish we’d gotten to eat more of it or could go back somewhere to eat more. If I have any event in the future, I’d use Culinary Arts in a second for the food.
We got to work with their chief Yossi and he was great. We wanted the right sense of ethnic food (we're Colombian and Puerto Rican - so not Tex-Mex, but still Latin flair) and he really delivered. His ideas were right on track, the presentation looked great, and he was just a lot of fun to plan a menu with.
The only reason I can't give them a perfect score is that we weren't thrilled with the bartenders. In general, they were great, but we had a lot of waste with the beer/booze. We maybe should have done different or better signage at the bar, but many of our items seemed like they were barely drunk. That's not a huge issue, except that they broke up a ton of the 6 packs of the speciality IPA (so we couldn't return them), and opened several bottles of the same alcohol. We came home with 2 bottles of the same alcohol - neither bottle could have served more than one drink.
But even if that had been worse, we'd use Culinary Art any chance possible. They were generally great to plan with and the food was so good. Multiple people have commented to us specifically about how good the food was.
I should also mention that, even though we had a buffet, they were really great about working around the many dietary restrictions. They made almost all of the vegetarian items vegan. We did not end up needing to order any special plates for highly restrictive diets, but they were really flexible about all of that, too.

We used Culinary Art Catering for both the food at our reception as well as all the linen rentals. The sales manager we originally met with when we booked our event left the company about 2 months before our wedding and Rebecca took over our event. Despite this transition, Culinary Art handled our event flawlessly. Rebecca picked up right where our old manager left off and never missed a beat. She was quick to respond to any questions I had as the big day approached, which I really appreciated. On the wedding day itself, the Culinary Art staff was on time and set up everything in plenty of time for the cocktail hour and reception. I had picked out a napkin fold that ended up being too big and looking very awkward on the table. Rebecca worked quickly with my mom to come up with a new fold and get all the napkins on the table and looking beautiful without me even knowing there was a problem to stress about! And the food...oh the food was delicious! Everyone told me that brides barely eat at their wedding, but that was not the case with me. Culinary Art brought in several trays of hors d' oeuvres to the bridal party while we were taking pictures post-ceremony so that we got to munch on the tasty treats like all the other guests (which was awesome since the quesadilla trumpets were the food item I had loved the most at our tasting). And when we entered the reception two plates of fajitas were ready and waiting for us. They even had all the fixings on a separate plate on the side for us since my husband is very picky. We were able to chow down before everyone else had even made it through the buffet line and that gave us plenty of time to go around and greet all our guests after we ate. Overall, I was very impressed with the professionalism of Culinary Art and the food was just wonderful. Thank you for making our reception a success!

You don't have to lift a finger...

okay maybe only when you are tasting their amazing food! Where do I even start! Culinary Art Catering was our first and only caterer that we went to when we were planning our wedding. Our first meeting and tasting with them was enough to seal the deal. We felt at ease, welcomed, and "catered" to from the beginning. They have a wealth of information and expertise to help you in all stages of your wedding and are so flexible and easy to plan with. The catering part of the wedding was so important to us, it was great to feel so confidant that things will go perfectly on the big day.

The day came and it was fabulous. I probably contacted, emailed, and called Sarah Kane a million times up to just days before the wedding of unforeseen changes that were happening and each time she was accommodating and made sure I wasn't stressed out. The food, the presentation, the courteous staff, the astonishingly quick set-up and tear down were all amazing! Culinary Art Catering also provided the bar service which was very popular and the beautiful linens. We have some picky eaters in our family, but many could not wait for seconds! Also, I have to mention that I was dying for a glass of water after all the festivities had ended and one of the wait staff went and got me one even though they were all packed up to go. That's the kind of care they put in to make sure you have a stress free and wonderful day.

I could go on and on about them and received so many compliments from our family and friends. You are doing yourself a huge favor by choosing Culinary Art Catering. I cannot wait to contact them again for a future event.

Also, I have to mention that I was dying for a glass of water after all the festivities had ended and one of the wait staff went and got me one even though they were all packed up to go. That's the kind of care they put in to make sure you have a stress free and wonderful day.

I could go on and on about them and received so many compliments from our family and friends. You are doing yourself a huge favor by choosing Culinary Art Catering. I cannot wait to contact them again for a future event. Read less

Service, food, staff are excellent! I am impressed on how the staff manages the food or organization. They are quick, friendly and I would not know what to do without them. One of them even saved some food for me knowing that I am busy hosting guests and have no time to run to the buffet table! My guests like the food which is the most important thing. They are also flexible about me bringing my own food and dessert.

A couple of pitfalls... I had a second floor for the event party and the staff forgot to clean the upstairs, so my husband and I had to quickly cleaned it up. It was a small area fortunately. I ordered the paella which was lovely. However, the chef did not cut the chicken into small pieces, making it hard to eat, especially when it still has bones in them. My suggestion is to cut the chicken into smaller pieces. A lot of people did not touch the paella as a result.

Overall, I am very pleased and I would recommend anyone to cater from them! Thank you guys!

Great service. Very professional. Steve went out of his way to make sure everything went very smoothly on our wedding day. Food was fantastic. People are still talking about our whipped potato martini bar. They were a one stop shop for event rentals and catering. We were very happy with having chosen Culinary Art Catering. Thank you!!!

The food at our wedding was delicious. All of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the many selections which were provided and how wonderful it all tasted. Culinary Art also provided us with 2 bartenders, only one of which had bar tending experience. The female bartender was fantastic, the male bartender, despite his best efforts, became easily frustrated by the overwhelming demand placed on him and his lack of drink mixing knowledge. Food and food service get an A+, drink service gets just a C+.

Our experience from the tasting up until our reception was excellent. Vivian worked with us on our food selections and budget. The quality and presentation of the food and portions served was very good and the bar and table service was excellent as well. However, the approved contract and table floor plan specified two-sided serving tables for the salad, veggies and macaroni bar and single serving table for the carving station. This was a buffet style dinner. Without consulting us or our wedding planner a decision was made by Culinary Arts to arrange all the serving stations end-on-end, together in one long line, as ONE SIDED NOT TWO with the macaroni bar at one end and the carving station at the other with the salads and veggies in the middle. This caused guests to form lines at both ends and meet in the middle which made no sense at all. There was only one attendant manning the macaroni bar and she was drying clean glasses and then slowly filling the glasses with pasta and they slowly adding the cheese and food toppings. If she would have just filled the glasses with pasta and allowed the guests to add their own toppings the line would have moved much faster. If there were two attendants it would have helped even more. The result was a wait of up to an hour or more for some of our guests to be served. My oldest friend and his wife who came in from Chicago had to wait an hour and fifteen minutes to be served dinner.
The available space was tight but did have room for two side serving and was approved by Vivian after a meeting at the reception venue with the caterer, wedding planner and venue manager. If she foresaw a problem it should have been addressed then or someone from Culinary Arts should at least have brought it to the attention of our wedding planner the day of. During the reception our wedding planner asked chef Yossi to do something about this and he replied that everything was fine and the guests were just visiting which was not the case. Vivian had come by at the beginning of our event (although I never saw her) but left to attend another event leaving the chef and staff to manage themselves.
I contacted Vivian the next week and she followed up promptly and was very nice about apologizing and offered to make it up to us in some way on a future event but who knows when that will be. I want to say again that everything else was fine but I felt so bad for our guests who had to wait so long to be served. I would not use Culinary Arts Catering again.

The food tasted wonderful. The staff - specifically Maggie went above and beyond the call of duty. I was the wedding planner and my client's only complaint was food service took too long, and some guests left without eating. Also, I felt as though cost per person was on the high side.

Thank you so much! It was a pleasure to work with you! We do try to consult with our clients to discuss the best options to expedite the food service and we do our best to make everything go quickly while also meeting the client's vision for the look of the space. I do apologize that service took longer than anticipated, we will do our best in the future to make food service quicker.

I wanted to be able to rave about Culinary Arts Catering, but I just can't.

First, the good: I felt that Culinary Arts was very professional in all correspondence and on the day of the wedding. I felt that I was getting great customer service from Vivian Morgan, what I wanted was being listened to and added into the overall plan for the event. Also, the tasting was amazing! The food was superb and I was so excited I had them as my caterer. In addition, Vivian helped me set up the schedule for the day and gave great suggestions for using my venue to my advantage.

Then, the not so good: I had made it clear every step of the way that it was very important to me to have whole or quartered wheels of cheese at the event. In the past, I had worked in a cheese shop for over 2 years and this really mattered to me. It was written in the contract that the cheese would be "Served as uncut wedges, wheels, and in croute." While I did not expect all the cheeses to be served this way (some, really it is just better to have cut) I was very disappointed that NONE of the cheese where served in uncut wedges. I mean really - how hard is it to at least put a wedge of brie out there?

My second problem was the difference between the tasting (which was awesome) and the food served (which was good, but rather ordinary.) I understand that it is different serving 3 people in a tasting than 125 at an event - but I felt that the two were so very different, that the tasting was not a real representation of what I was served at my event.

The third problem was that at least one menu item I was going to have at my event was not at the tasting; at the wedding I ended up not liking that item and had wished I could have had tasted it before, so I could have changed it.

We were really looking forward to using CAC- the tasting went wonderfully and the chef is amazing. They really worked with our budget and got creative with the food to make it affordable for our reception. Unfortunately their performance at the event itself was less than desirable. First off, we had a mashed potato bar that was a big display in our buffet - well they ran out of mashed potatos within the FIRST FIFTEEN MINUTES of serving. The headcount we turned in was accurate and this was COMPLETE lack of preparation on their part. We ran out of vegetables about 15 minutes after that. Guests were complaining and wondering where these two foods went and my parents were mortified: There were now two huge EMPTY tables in the middle of our buffet setup! To make things worse, the catering manager is supposed to check out at the end of the night with the wedding coordinator and he (Steve) completely left before speaking with anyone. Our wedding planner was SHOCKED and embarassed she had recommended them. At least they were slightly more professional back at the office and gave us some of our money back for their mistakes. Sadly, I will have to tell you to STAY AWAY FROM CULINARY ARTS! I would hate for the same things to happen to you!!
