Delectables catered my wedding and the food was amazing. I worked with Michele on getting the menus together and setting up all the details and she is a wonderful person. I enjoyed working with her.
Everyone loved the food. If I am to be honest, the only thing I didn't particularly like was the serving of the food. The waiters looked chaotic in their service and took up all the walking and mingling space my guests and my hubby and me had. They were not rude and that's why I'm still giving them a high rank, but I was a bit disappointed to look up from my table and only see waiters down the middle of the room instead of my friends and family. Our wedding was meant to be very elegant so I would have preferred them a bit more low key, but all in all they got the food out in time and the food was amazing, which is what my guests will remember and that makes me smile. I would recommend them, but be sure to make a note to stress on the importance of how you want the service conducted.

The food was delicious, from appetizers to main meal. The filet was perfectly cooked, everyone raved about it and the food. May get to have Delectables do wedding number two for our other daughter when time comes.

Delectables did an outstanding job for our wedding reception. The food was positively memorable for both taste and presentation. The special dietary needs of the two people requiring gluten-free meals were well met. The staff at the event did an excellent job.

Planning our wedding from across the country came with plenty of challenges but working with Michele made the catering planning nothing short of a dream! Michele was there throughout the entire process, very responsive to my cross country, all hours emails, and went out of her way to make the entire process so great. We LOVED working with her, she and the Delectables staff made our wedding day PERFECT! The staff at the actual event were amazing, the guests raved about the food, and the bar tenders were great. Honestly, couldn't have imagined going with anyone else and I'd recommend the experience to anyone! I can't thank Michele and the team enough for all their hard work!

We can't say enough wonderful things about this company! By far our best experience while planning our wedding from start to finish. People are still complimenting me on how wonderful the food was and how it was the best wedding food they've ever had. Michele was just a blessing to work with and made everything so easy and was so persaonable. The staff at the wedding was so incredibly friendly and sweet. They truly made everything run so smoothly. The display was absolutely beautiful. We will always recommend this company for events.
