Epicurean was a huge disappointment at our wedding. We chose them because of their reputation as the "best" and because we had big, exciting plans for our wedding dinner. We had an $11,000 food budget for 80 guests. The cost was so high because we had such high food presentation standards, and because we were hiring a literal army of staff to plate seated dinner to our guests simultaneously. 8 waiters placing 8 plates in front of 8 guests at the same time. That detail, and so many others, were in fact completely ignored by Epicurean the night of the wedding while my husband and I sat there in shock and disappointment during our wedding dinner rather than enjoying ourselves. Some of the food on our menu was completely wrong (& they were clear on what we wanted after 4 tastings) & their chicken was awful. Inedible. Sawdust. So upsetting because it had been delicious in our tastings. We're sharing this honest yet negative review because Epicurean refuses to offer any remedy to the fact we paid dearly for services they did not provide. Take caution when hiring the "best." They may in fact just be resting on an outdated reputation that is no longer deserved.

Due to the venue we chose for our wedding, this was the only vendor we could use for catering as it was an exclusive relationship. We felt that the food was delicious and our guests enjoyed their meals. The entree portions were fair but the hors devours were very small and you do not get your bang for the buck. We felt this caterer was out of our price range but did not have much control over this because we fell in love with the venue. Our biggest issue was the contact we had at Epicurean. While she was responsive to emails and professional, she built our menu without giving us options (i.e. put a salad on there that we didn't care for and later we learned there were many more salad options), she was vague with pricing (i.e. at the tasting we were told that there would be 4 appetizers, but later we found out each guest only got three so we would have to add more money there), and in general it felt like she was not as organized as we would have liked. Unfortunately, it got to a point where we had to involve upper management, but thankfully, things were resolved from that point on. We feel that Epicurean is a great company and provides exceptional service, we just did not have a great experience with our main contact and felt they were very pricey.

They are barely worth a half of a star, and here is why:

We hired them for our wedding after an extensive search because they appeared to be professional and on top of things. And they were...until the day of the wedding.
They were 3 hours late! We had to postpone the start of the ceremony because the food truck had not arrived. When we asked why, we received a vague answer about it not making it up the hill. So there wasn't any food for the wedding party as we planned.
When they finally did get things going they failed left and right. The coffee, when it was eventually put out was cold, the food was not nearly the quality we tasted months before at their kitchen, and a few of our wedding party got snarky, rude responses from the staff when asking for basic things.
When we tried to follow up to get an understanding of what went wrong, they gave us the run around, continuing with vague answers. After two weeks, we finally found out that the reason for the 3 hour delay was because they forgot half the food when they initially arrived and turned around to drive back to Denver to get it. Common sense would say to at least drop off what you have or call for another truck to drive up.
They were petty in negotiations on the cost and refund for their failed service.
In the end, one of most unprofessional companies I have experienced. You only get a wedding day once, and they blew their end of the deal big time.

Epicurean in Denver recently catered my wedding and while the food was great...the service leading up to and after were HORRIBLE! Their method of dealing with clients is quite surprising considering how long they've been in business. Things that were offered to win them the business were later taken away, costs began to mysteriously increase while the menu did not change, day-of specifics were withheld until 48 hours before...making for a nightmare few days leading up to. To top everything off, after the wedding our CC was charged additional money with NO explanation. When asked to provide details, we were told, "Sorry you have a bad taste in your mouth about our billing, and by the way our CFO did you a favor and decided not to charge you for your tasting, we normally charge the client back for that". WOW! Especially since the "free" tasting in question was meant to save the business as our first experience with Epicurean food was awful. Oh and need I mention that the friends we referred to them just signed a contract....sure wish I had known all of this before the recommendation. SO I say couples BEWARE...stay on top of them and don't let them take advantage of you during what should be a blissful experience.

Epicurean exceeded my expectations. Their level of creativity was amazing. We had a dessert reception and they came up with the best ideas--a s'more station, bananas foster station, and complementary apps like Kobe beef sliders, and cheeses. Everything, every little detail was covered. It just felt like we were the most special clients they've ever had, which is what you want as a client. I was VERY impressed with the staff and the food. Would highly recommend!

Brus Osborne and the team at Epicurean are amazing to work with. A very reliable company in both service and product. A dedicated company always willing to do what it takes to please a customer and to build relationships with industry partners.

So pleased with Epicurean! They were on-time, the food was great, and their staff was very accomadating to us! Making sure we had appetizers, drinks, and anything else. Their staff went above expecations. It was raining and cold, but I wanted a few pics outside, one of the waiters brought me a blanket to warm me back up walking back to the venue. They are a huge company, but made me feel like I was the only bride. A+

Perfect on all accounts. Our account manager, Jill was absolutely fantastic and used her extensive experience to provide additional ideas that really helped us find exactly what my wife and I wanted. They have excellent customer service and an incredible selection of foods and services - highly recommended!
