Both my partner and I have worked in restaurants and catering venues so we had really high standards for a caterer for our wedding. We were both determined to find someone who could make interesting and delicious food- not just the standard wedding fare. We were so happy to find Culinary Creations- a company that perfectly fit what we wanted.

They have a huge number of choices to choose from with a lot of flexibility to mix different concepts, sauces, and types of food to build a fully customized menu. Once you sit with Andrew and give him some idea of your budget and wants, he works with you to add and remove different options to satisfy your needs. We decided we didn't want a wedding cake, so he circled every other dessert option we could have without adding to our price and then told us he could easily do other options as well if we wanted- we could just adjust the menu elsewhere. That kind of flexibility made it very easy to chose a menu that was perfect for us and our budget.

The night of the wedding, JoAnn ran everything smoothly and professionally. Although I failed to notice and warn her that my venue didn't have a freezer (sorry, JoAnn!), she quickly adapted and made a slight change to the schedule of the event to make our dessert work. She and her team were friendly, professional, and very accommodating. My partner and I ran late and missed our cocktail hour so her team put aside some of the passed hors d'ouevres for us to try later.

Because my partner and I have both worked in the service industry and know service people aren't always treated great, it was nice to learn that all staff are compensated fairly and treated well by Culinary Creations. I can only assume that leads to less turnover as the staff seemed well trained and professional.

Culinary Creations was easy to work with, didn't try to "up sell" or push me out of my budget, and made delicious food. I couldn't have really asked for anything more.

They made my wedding day an event to remember - the food was INCREDIBLE, the set-up beautiful, service BEYOND AMAZING, and attention to detail PERFECT - at a level above and beyond others.

Every time someone talks to me about the wedding, they mention how terrific the food and staff were. I honestly cannot say enough great things about them. THANK YOU Andrew, JoAnn, and everyone for making our day so AMAZING!!!

Andrew and Joann were flexible, prompt and professional from beginning to end, we couldn't have asked for anything more! The food was outstanding with delicious and creative choices, and the accommodation for gluten free and vegetarian guests was perfectly executed.

Upon selecting Culinary to cater our wedding, we asked Andrew to help us with three things:
We wanted it masculine, elegant and reasonably priced. Also, we did not want to be limited to the regular catering menu and definitely not a sit down dinner. Instead, we wanted something different, in other words, we gave Andrew the latitude to be imaginative and creative and did he ever deliver.

Although our wedding was in December, we are still receiving accolades about the food, the table scape and the service. .

Culinary Creations helped to make our wedding masculine, elegant, magical, and exceptional for which will be forever grateful. We are already planning to book Culinary for our 1st Anniversary Party.
Thank You!

Andrew and JoAnn were incredible from start to finish! They had incredible options to choose from, outstanding suggestions, and were quick to assist with any questions. They turned our firehouse venue into a breathtaking formal reception hall. They set up the room with impecibile care and really put a lot of effort into making everything look beautiful! Our captain, JoAnn, was at our side throughout the night to see if we needed anything. She was patient with every request and helpful at every moment. The rest of the staff was so efficient and quick to help all our guests. The bartender was a sweetheart and was quick to assist all our guests. The food was so delicious. And with a variety of diatiary needs, we had something available for anyone. I would happily recommend to everyone I know looking for a delicious and extremely efficient vendor.

This is a great off-site caterer. The food was awesome, and my guests were happy. The cake is amazing! Andrew was very responsive and able to answer all of my questions and requests. Tim is a real asset to the company, and really took care of us from our first tasting through to making sure my husband and I had everything we needed as we got on the shuttle going home. I can't say enough good things- I even got to enjoy the food!

Kelli,
Thank you for taking the time and submitting a review on Wedding Wire. It was a pleasure working with you and William. I know it is difficult planning a wedding from Florida to host in New Jersey but I am glad to hear you were happy with everything. We have already received some inquiries from guests at your wedding for other styles of catering. We appreciate you business and want to congratulate you both again, please stop by and visit us when you are in NJ again!

Culinary Creations was fantastic! Everything from our tasting where we left with enough food for a week to the end of our wedding reception was great. The food was fantastic, they brought us appetizers while we were taking pictures during cocktail hour, they made sure to make a plate for myself and my husband before the rest of the guests went to the buffet, the cake was delicious (and even better than the cake trial we had with them previously). I would highly recommend them to anyone! They know what they're doing - everything ran like a well-oiled machine.

We planned our wedding in just a few short weeks and had suffered through many painstaking phone calls with "not so nice caterers" that laughed at our budget or just wasn't interested in the type of menu we were looking to do....and then... We called Culinary Creations. I first spoke with Tim Mason. He was so kind, polite, and professional. They were able to work within our budget and provide us with everything we needed and wanted. My husband and I wanted a Thanksgiving dinner menu and Culinary Creations couldn't have been happier to give us exactly that. The owner is Andrew Pantano and he runs a top notch catering business. Andrew is also wonderfully kind and down to earth like Tim. These two men were an absolute pleasure to do business with and the waitstaff they provided did a fantastic job as well. Go in for a tasting. I promise...you will be glad you did.
