The venue for my daughters wedding was Ariel International so when we began our search for a caterer we had to find a company that could prepare the meals on site since we were planning a sit down dinner. After narrowing down our list, we selected Driftwood and I am so glad we did. Catie Hodgson was wonderful to work with! She was flexible, worked with our budget, and responded promptly to all emails and phone calls (even when she was on vacation). The food and service the evening of the wedding were exceptional. The chefs were able to accommodate some guests with special dietary needs on the spot as we were not aware in advance of these requirements. The servers were very attentive to the needs of the guests. To sum it up, we were all very happy with Driftwood and I would definitely recommend them to friends. We plan to visit some of their restaurants in the near future too!

Driftwood Catering provided the space (Cibreo Privato- in the old 4th Street Theater) and food for our recent wedding. Catie Hodgson, the catering manager, was incredibly friendly and professional throughout our planning process. She responded to emails quickly, and she answered all of our questions. She went above and beyond what was expected of her, and she was available the night of our event to make sure everything went smoothly.
For our food selections, we were able to create a unique menu that captured our love of food. The appetizers were creative and delicious, and all of our guests enjoyed the entree selections. We had many vegetarian and vegan guests, and the chefs were able to accommodate these dietary needs.
The staff on the day of the wedding worked quickly and efficiently. We held our ceremony in the event space, so a quick turnover was required to prepare the space for dinner. The wait staff were ahead of schedule, which provided more time for dancing at the end of the evening.
I will gladly employ the services of Driftwood Catering again, and I look forward to frequenting their many restaurants in the area to enjoy their high quality food on a regular basis!

All of our guests said that this was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. The food was amazing! My husband and I ate leftovers (didn't get a chance to really eat at the wedding), and they were still so good.

Driftwood was co-founded by two restauranteurs in Cleveland, including one of the contestants on Food Network's "Next Food Network Star" Chris Hodgson. He also runs a food truck that was featured on the Great Food Truck Race, so they have a great handle on catering and food preparation.

We ordered some "non-traditional" food for our Sunday lunch, including root beer short ribs and shrimp & grits (with chorizo). For the vegetarian option, we had the vegetable napoleon. We also had a kale salad that we really enjoyed. It was all very reasonably priced for the quality of food.

The best part of Driftwood is that they are very customizable - they will do what works for your budget rather than trying to sell you extra add-ons. I think they value hospitality and quality of food first - they aren't going to play the middle man. The servers and bar tenders were great - got all the food out in a timely manner and no one was left waiting. We got a chance to pick our own silverware and the # of table linens - again, no extra add-ons or upgrades. It was very straight forward with great value!

As for responsiveness, I had some trouble getting in touch with the coordinator, and I had to follow up and correct our order several times. It would have been nice to have some sort of excel sheet of our budget and all our notes from Driftwood. In the end, I had my day-of coordinator work with Driftwood to do all final preparations. Everything worked out in the end, but this is definitely an area of improvement. Jaimie cares a lot about the food quality and event preparation, but not as much for decor and other flourishes.

We loved the food and service and would recommend to a friend, as long as they are willing to do the work of communication and follow up!
