Funky's is terrific-excellent food and service. I got many compliments from my guests about the food and how good it was. Best loved of all were the flaming doughnuts. They take Krispy Kremes, flambe them in liquor, which your guests get to watch, and then they have ice cream and toppings for them. If you hire Funky's, GET THIS. It's worth every penny. It will make your wedding unique and memorable.

The staff was very professional and worked their butts off-Alyssa, our captain, was great. They are also very good about accommodating special requests-at least regarding the food. While they aren't the cheapest, they are at least straight forward and don't stick in BS fees like cake cutting.

So I hear you asking, what's with the low rating on flexibility, then? Two words-Bar. Package. Theirs sucks, and they are completely unwilling to work with you on it in any way unless you pay extra. First of all, there is ZERO excuse for a bar package that doesn't include tequila. That's ridiculous. It also doesn't include margarita mix, bloody mary mix, peach schnapps...I could go on. Name a popular mixed drink, it's almost guaranteed at least one ingredient necessary to make it is not included in the package. And they are completely unwilling to substitute ANYTHING. Believe me, I asked. Multiple times. Their bar package is geared to heavy liquor-scotch, bourbon, whisky, etc. I don't think I had a single guest who drinks scotch-but they were absolutely unwilling to substitute tequila or anything else for it. I'm pretty sure we never opened one bottle-and I paid per person, not consumption, so I had to pay for something I didn't want and didn't use. I resent that and it's why it cost them four stars on flexibility and one star off overall value.

I am overall VERY satisfied with Funky's, and I do recommend them enthusiastically overall. I just think their bar package (and customer service regarding it) needs serious work.

Seth and Sarah at Funky's were the hit of the wedding! My husband and I have been to lots of weddings with mediocre food, and wanted to give our guests the kind of food we like to eat - casual, buffet style, barbecue and great veggie sides - without spending on a trendy caterer. Funkys was so down to earth and genuine; they guide you through the process while letting you maintain creative license.

For example, we simply sent Seth a menu of items we liked from restaurants around New York and Chicago, where we live, and his team literally recreated them. Verbatim. Including working with another caterer to bring in an entire roast pig that they carved and served onsite. All for less than we would have gotten elsewhere.

Sarah so kindly was waiting for my husband and I with our "signature cocktails" after photos (thank god) and the guests raved about the sticks of bacon being passed as appetizers (you must order these; they are incredible). Seth was a champion pig carver and general conductor of the evening. You cannot go wrong with this team - they were amazing!

For the past three years I’ve attend an annual holiday party that always uses Funky’s Catering. When it came time for my family to start our search for my wedding caterer, I knew I wanted to try Funky’s! We first met with Michael “Funky” and he made us feel so comfortable and so excited about working with them! By the end of the meeting, he made us feel like family. We then had an in-house trial taste testing were we got to try ALL possible appetizers, all salads, and a select number of entrees. The food was SOOOO good! We had a great problem of not knowing what to choose! But Jerin led the taste testing and he had wonderful suggestions for a summer wedding and helped us pair everything together to create an Amazing meal. We then had our final meeting with our Captain Seth a few weeks out from our wedding, and we went over all the details of the day. Seth was absolutely great! I knew I wanted a signature Mint Julep drink to go along with our equestrian theme and he and his staff made it BETTER than any mint julep I had ever had! All of food was cooked on site and it came out warm and tasted GREAT! Seth was always checking in on me and my husband to make sure we were happy and help keep things on schedule. The entire staff was professional and we could tell they took pride in their operation! My family would highly recommend booking Funky’s Catering for your next event! They will not disappoint.

My husband and I were the first to be married at The Transept in Over the Rhine! Funky's catering is a part owner of the venue, and also the exclusive caterer. Both our ceremony and reception were held at this location. The venue itself is unquestionably stunning. I was particularly blown away by the bridal suite tower, it is truly a dream area for a bride to get ready. For it being their first run at this particular venue, the team did a fantastic job. Although their renovation timeline did not go exactly as planned by the time our wedding date arrived, they bent over backwards to make sure that everything was perfect for us. And it was! The food was absolutely amazing (as ALWAYS), and their customer service is second to none (also, as ALWAYS!) My family has been long time, very happy customers of Funky's, so there was no question for us to choose them for this special day. I can't say enough how dedicated the Funky's Catering team is to their craft. If you're seeking a top notch caterer and/or venue, I will recommend them over and over again... 5 STARS :)

The food was excellent and the service was perfect. We got several compliments on the wedding dinner. Feeding 170 people good food is certainly not easy but Funky's does a great job. I have used them for other events prior to our wedding and will use them again. Excellent food, modern choices, and good pricing.

FABULOUS! Funky's was great to work with and - most important! - the food was fantastic. We had a plated duo with chicken and filet, risotto and vegetables for about 50 people. The portions were very generous and everyone raved about the food. They had amazingly consistent quality from the first plate out to the last which is really tough to do. My only complaint is that the servers brought out coffee while we were still eating so it felt a bit rushed and it was way too early before the cake was cut and plated (that could have been the venue's fault though?).

I would recommend them to anyone looking for a caterer, the service and food was fabulous!

We could not be more happy with our selection of Funky's catering for our Wedding. We absolutely loved the service, the care and the commitment to our entire wedding they provided to make it an unbelievable event! The food was delicious, the appetizers were not only extremely delicious but also very elegant. We had a large selection to choose from. The tasting was a great evening for our families and they really met every request we had and then went above that. The signature cocktails that we chose were the mojito and pink bellini. Both were so refreshing and the only regret I have is we should have ordered more. From the planning stages to the day of, Funky's made our entire experience so wonderful. I cannot say enough positive things about them. Starting with the professionalism, the care for making our dreams reality and also making us feel like the most special, important people throughout our wedding day. Shannon was wonderful to work with, Seth provided the best advice and organization for our meal. Michael the owner was so lovely to work with and even came out to congratulate us and ask how we liked our meal. Lory our captain made the entire evening run so smoothly. The only thing I wish is that we could relive the entire day! Thank you Funky's for everything, You are amazing to work with!

We used Funky's for our wedding on 10/18/14 at the Newport Aquarium. They were wonderful all throughout the process. We worked with Davidson on the day of the wedding and he was great. The best part of their service that day was the lead server, Ashley (I believe?!). She was with my husband and I all throughout the cocktail hour making sure we had drinks and appetizers while getting pictures, she was a lifesaver. All the guests really liked the buffet and I would definitely recommend them.
