The food and waiters and waitresses were great! All the planning with Jackie was great, she was very helpful in finding the perfect package for our event and budget. Service to the bride and groom on the day of could have been better and minor things were changed at the last min without our approval, but all in all the service was great, food was great and staff was great.

We hired Gil's based on our wedding planner's recommendation, and I am so glad we did! Food is one of the most important choices at your wedding, and I was so glad that our venue allowed us to hire our own caterer. Gil's provided both flexibility and quality. For our winter wedding, we wanted delicious comfort food, so we chose action stations with beef, salmon, grilled cheese, soup, mashed potatoes, veggies, and a salad bar. In addition, Gil's provided an amazing hot chocolate and coffee bar with to go cups and all sorts of yummy toppings. We also used their bartending services. We received so many compliments on the food! The staff brought a plate with a little bit of everything to me and my new husband so that we didn't have to carry our plates. We heard so many stories from people about how you won't eat on your wedding day because you'll be so busy, but they made sure we ate. Our wedding took place during the huge ice storm in DFW, and Gil's showed up completely prepared and on time. The comfort food we chose certainly fit the bill for the weather! At the end of the night, Gil's gave us a nice little cooler with snacks and leftover food for a late night picnic! If you are lucky enough to choose your own caterer, you cannot go wrong with Gil's. Their food is delicious, and the staff is extremely professional.

Gil's was wonderful!! Brenda was a delight to work with. She accommodated our special requests and went above and beyond to make sure my daughter's vision for her reception was exactly what she wanted! Gil's had "events" that we were invited to that were set up like a reception at different venues in town. That was so nice to be able to see exactly what our reception would be like and be able to taste different foods. And the food was amazing!! Could not have been happier!!

Jackie with Gil's catering made me feel at ease as soon as I met her. She seemed to have everything together and knew my venue well. I really wish that we would have had another meeting the week of the wedding (even just a phone conference) in order to discuss the details of the reception. There were a few items that were overlooked at the reception. For one, the table cloths were not ironed. They had huge folds in them, which is not the end of the world, but the reason why we rented instead of buying and reselling is because we did not want to have to worry about ironing them the day of the wedding. When you are paying a lot of money for a service, you expect it to be perfect. Also, we had ordered vegetarian dishes (and had MULTIPLE emails about this) and Gil's forgot to bring them on the day of the wedding. We also had only ordered cake for 100 guests (from another vendor) because we ordered cobbler from Gil's for 100 guests as well. We only had about 135 guests, but we were told that these amounts would be plenty as some guests would only take cobbler and others, only cake. However, Gil's did not have the cake on a table for guests to grab, like discussed, instead, they placed them at each guests' seat. Obviously, there were people who never even got a piece of cake - including my MOTHER who paid for the entire wedding!!!

However, I would recommend Gil's again because they were professional and responsive. I would recommend having a meeting of some kind the week of the wedding in order to nail down all of the details.

We hired Gil's to do our wedding and it proved to be a great choice! Jackie is a sweetheart and has wonderful ideas to compliment even unusual themes ( ours was a fifties retro theme). The food was spectacular and I have received numerous complements on it! The servers were extremely attentive and always busy at work enhancing the service. They served myself and my husband at our table and ensured we actually ate ( unlike many newlyweds) and made sure we and all of our guests were taken care of! If you are looking for 5 star service Gil's is definitely the way to go!

We were recommended Gil's Elegant Catering by our venue and our wedding planner, and we couldn't have been happier with the responsiveness and professionalism displayed by their point-of-contact (Jackie Hickey) as well as their servers/manager/chef on the day of the wedding.

We went with a basic Italian dinner buffet, and our food was hot and the chicken, tender! The manager was thoughtful and wanted to get the food plated for us, the married couple, but since we were already in line, we decided to serve ourselves.

Every step of the way, Gil's showed us that they were thoughtful, experienced professionals--down to the details of providing us with a fruit and cheese tray before the reception, then packing up the cake with a fork and knife for us to savor later. We would recommend them and their services to anyone who is considering Gil's.

Gil's Elegant Catering provided superior food and service at the wedding reception of our daughter and new son in law. Brenda, the director of catering, was so helpful in creating the perfect menu and service plan. Our complements go to Luis. The steak and chicken were unbelievably tender and cooked to perfection. In addition, the presentation was impressive. I read so many articles that said don't expect a four star meal at a wedding reception. Well, I think it is fair to say you can EXPECT that from Gil's Elegant Catering. It was delicious and our guests commented the same. The wait staff were attentive and anticipated the needs of our guest throughout the evening. The dinner was served hot in a timely efficient manner, glasses were refilled and the tables were cleared effortlessly. The bartender staff were pleasant and professional. Honestly, the best word I can think of is AMAZING. Gil's Elegant Catering exceeded our expectations Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Gil’s was very easy to work with, and they responded promptly when I e-mailed or called them. They’re especially great for a wedding at the Dallas Arboretum because they provide the food at the restaurant there and are very familiar with the facilities. Gil’s was able to customize a menu that fit exactly what I had in mind for my wedding day. The food and the service were both great. My only complaint is that I asked for a build-your-own breakfast taco station (and paid extra for it), and they had the tacos pre-prepared. I shoulder part of the blame for this myself because I didn’t emphasize that the build-your-own aspect was important to me, so I’d recommend being very clear with them if you have any specific wishes. However, that was only a small hiccup in an otherwise great experience!

Perfect! Gil's helped us create the perfect menu for our brunch theme! We were able to do a tasting before locking down the menu! I loved that they also brought all flatware, dishes, and stemware!

Many of my guests commented that this was the best wedding food they have ever had! They even pack a "to-go" bag for the bride and groom, because you will NOT get to eat during your reception!

Price was wonderful and we couldn't have done better!

Gil's did such a great job at our wedding! Jackie is so fun and helpful to work with and she takes care of everything! Their food is amazing, we got lots of compliments on it! The staff set up a little table in the bridal room of our reception site for us to take a few minutes to relax, eat, drink, and be alone before we went out to mingle and dance, which was perfect! They also packed a little cooler with more food and some cake to put in our car for when we got back to the hotel, and it was exactly what we needed. Thank you!

Probably the best wedding reception food I have ever eaten! 170 guests and the buffet style food was hot/warm and very tasty. The pork tenderlion carving station was delicious; the pork was so tender you did not need a knife to cut it and the raspberry chipolte sauce was perfect. The lobster tortilleni was very tasty, as was the stuffed chicken, southwest salad, and twice baked potatoes. The crab cakes and chipolte pork on sweet potato pancake appetizers were excellent.
The staff were right on top of things at the reception; making sure there was always warm food on the buffet; cleared plates as needed at the tables, and attended to the guests wishes. They were very attentive to the bride and groom and also parents thruout the evening.
Jackie was great to work with; she was always available by phone and would offer suggestions as needed and always willing to make changes if we desired. Very reasonable pricing; we did compare with other caterers and Gil's got our vote on every thing we were concerned about. Tastings were also available; they worked with our busy schedules.
Many of our guests complemented Gil's on their food and service; it was a great dining experience.

The lobster tortilleni was very tasty, as was the stuffed chicken, southwest salad, and twice baked potatoes. The crab cakes and chipolte pork on sweet potato pancake appetizers were excellent.
The staff were right on top of things at the reception; making sure there was always warm food on the buffet; cleared plates as needed at the tables, and attended to the guests wishes. They were very attentive to the bride and groom and also parents thruout the evening.
Jackie was great to work with; she was always available by phone and would offer suggestions as needed and always willing to make changes if we desired. Very reasonable pricing; we did compare with other caterers and Gil's got our vote on every thing we were concerned about. Tastings were also available; they worked with our busy schedules.
Many of our guests complemented Gil's on their food and service; it was a great dining experience. Read less

I cannot express how happy we were with Gil's. Great service, delicious food and very flexible and understanding when working out a package. Brenda was great to work with- very responsive and professional to my emails and even came to check on everything at the wedding. We had well over 200 people and a buffet- yet everyone was raving on how delicious the food was. I added a roast beef carving station and was so glad I did- it was so delicious and made me feel like there was plenty to eat. Don't even shop around- just use Gil's. They are awesome!

Gil's is the most amazing caterer. Their food is remarkablly the best wedding food we have ever had. Our guest raved on and on how wonderful the food was. We never ran out of a single item. I have another daughter who will be getting married in the near future and I can assure you, we will use Gil's. Additionally, their food choices and options are unique, tasty, and beautiful! Jackie, our Gil's coordinator, was over the top organized and a take charge person. She made everything flow perfectly. On a scale of 1-10, Gils is a 10....a must have if they aren't already booked! Thanks Gil's for a remarkable evening!

If you want to to a wedding right, choose Gil's! You cannot go wrong!

I worked with Jackie for about 8 months before the wedding and she was extremely professional, responsive, and attentive to my needs. She worked with my husband and I on every aspect of the catering- from the types of food to the price to the presentation of the meal. Her staff worked with our demands during the wedding, as well as before and after! I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this catering company and wish them many years of success, as they did a great job. Thank you Gil's!

The staff was great at the wedding. They had food and drinks ready for us at our sweetheart table so we didn't have to go through our buffet line. They even sent food and wine in a cooler for us to take back to our hotel, which was perfect because we really didn't get to eat much with people coming over to say hello. We were really happy with everything!

The food from Gil's is delicious! And they have a variety of different kinds of food. I have zero complaints about the food. And Jackie Hickey is so easy to work with, she would literally email me back just minutes after sending her tons of questions. And she thinks of everything you might forget! The thing we were most bummed about was that the catering workers (servers, kitchen people) drank a whole case of our specially ordered and customized Jones soda that were being chilled in the refrigerator for the bridal party (this was not ordered through Gil's). Also, the bartender decided to quit mixing drinks an hour before our reception was over! Overall, however, I was very pleased with Gils and I would recommend them to anyone. I would use them again as well. Just hide your guests treats from the servers!!!!

We worked with Brenda from Gil's Elegant Catering. The food was incredibly delicious! All of our guests said it was the best wedding food they have ever had. Several people asked for "to-go boxes" because they wanted to take the food home for another meal. I was so happy with the quality and presentation of the food; DELICIOUS!! My only complaint was that they don't respond to emails very quickly. It was frustrating when I had a question and it took several weeks to be answered. But everything turned out fabulous, exactly how I wanted it to. I definitely recommend using Gil's Elegant Catering!

The food from Gil's was phenomenal. We ordered the mesquite grilled salmon, which was one of the big HITS of the night. In addition, a lot of people loved the Grilled Cheese station, and I loved the Churrascaria Station too. The service was awesome. My husband and I never had to get up once, the servers kept coming to our table to serve us. We had one minor snag with final invoice not getting settled on time. But Brenda apologized profusely for the mix-up. My husband had to go to their office the day before our wedding and personally drop off the check. Other than that, we thought Gil's was great!

When I first booked Gil's as my caterer, I had booked them along with the venue, the Empire Room. I was at first not too impressed with the girl (Laura) that handled my account, but she quit shortly thereafter I signed up with them. Then, under a very unfortunate circumstance, the Empire Room was no longer available about 2 months away from my wedding, which was at no fault of Gil's nor I. Brenda from Gil's took over my account immediately, and we worked together to get me a new venue ASAP. Because of them, I was able to get married at my dream venue and no extra cost/penalty to me. I deeply appreciated their professionalism and flexibility during this time, and crisis was averted, resulting in the perfect wedding. In addition, all the guests raved about the food and service. I would highly recommend Gil's to cater at your wedding reception.

We really liked working with the girl from Gil's, however we were a little disappointed in the food. The food was cold and some of the chicken was even served raw. Gil's quickly pulled the chicken when it was brought to their attention, and they provided a refund for that portion after the wedding. We also had some missing linens. Although the linens had to be mixed in with the linens provided by Gil's, they were not helpful in getting them back to the other linen company. This was very costly to us.

Gil's Catering did a great job for my wedding. We had some appetizers, a carving station, chopped salads served in martini glasses, and a macaroni bar that was to die for!! Gil's was easy to work with - I met with them several times to discuss my menu. They really worked with me to stay within my budget and get me the menu I wanted. They are by no means a "budget" catering company - their food, like most wedding caterers, is not cheap. But I thought the quality of the food was definitely worth it. Everyone commented on how good the food was! They also provided rentals for my wedding - tables, chairs, tablecloths, and all the servingware. A great vendor - definitely recommend!

Gil's Elegant Catering did a superb job for food/drinks for our wedding reception. We received tons of compliments on the quality of the food. The caterer ensured the bride, groom, and their parents were all served food quickly by delivering plates directly to those tables.

Gil's Elegant Catering did a superb job for food/drinks for our wedding reception. We received tons of compliments on the quality of the food. The caterer ensured the bride, groom, and their parents were all served food quickly by delivering plates directly to those tables.

Gil's did an excellent job at our wedding. We were so excited about the menu we chose, and Gil's didn't disappoint. Everything tasted incredible! Even almost a month after the wedding, we are still hearing from our guests that the food was fabulous. Our guests especially loved the late-night snack of chocolate chip cookies and milk that Gil's served.

Gil's was absolutely amazing. I loved working with Jackie and the Chef completely understood our vision and made it a reality. My husband and I wanted a non-traditional menu for our area and a VERY unique cake. It was our vision to have tapas (small plates) type stations through out the venue so it had more a mingle and munch feeling and not being fans of cake we wanted a Croque en Bouche in lieu of the traditional wedding cake and tartlets in lieu of the grooms cake. In our initial searches for a catering company I was constantly told “we don’t do these things” or "you aren’t ordering enough food" which translated into "I haven’t spoken to you but you aren’t spending enough money". Imagine my amusement at the constant phone calls and emails when I would come back and say "Sorry to hear that, our budget was $X but I understand". From the first email with Jackie it’s like she new exactly what I was talking about and never once made assumptions. She was friendly and bent over backwards for anything we needed.
Food… Oh my GOD, it was fantastic. My husband and I are definitely foodies so our expectations were very high. The chef put together amazingly unique flavor combinations resulting in a little piece of heaven with each bite. We received so many compliments from guests and I still crave some of the items daily. Many of our guests were the meat and potatoes type so it was great to walk around to tables and hear “What on earth am I eating, it’s amazing”, that would be vegetarian dolmas – you know stuffed grape leaves. It was too funny!! My only regret was being too occupied to eat more.
Service at event… The staff was wonderful. The moment my husband and I came into the room they brought over the appetizer trays, wine and a plate with every single item from the menu. They consistently checked in with us but were not overbearing in any way. The guests said the staff was friendly and attentive and helped explain many of the menu items. They even put together an ice chest full of items and sparkling wine for us to take back to the hotel.
So long story short – HIRE GIL’S!!!! You will not be disappointed. If only we could convince them to open a restaurant. I will definitely use Gil’s for any future catering needs I have.

We selected Gil's as our wedding caterer because of their professionalism and great menu options. Their monthly events were a great way for us to try a variety of their foods ahead of time so we could select the menu that was right for us. In the end, we were very happy with the results. We received multiple comments from our guests on how the food was the best they have ever had at a wedding. The only negatives were that I did not feel they were very responsive to my emails. On multiple occasions, I sent emails asking questions, and would receive half of the answers back while others were ignored. Again, in the end, it all worked out. I would just recommend being very clear, up front with them on the level of communication you expect.

We decided to create our own entrees and sides and price shop from that point between caterers. Gil's created what we asked for and it was delicious when we taste tested at their location. Their location is in between Dallas and Fort Worth in an industrial area which explains why they are able to price their food so low.

We continued to shop around for other vendors (floral, DJ, etc...) and everyone kept saying how Gil's had the best service. We signed up for several open houses they had and their food continued to stay really good and their servers friendly.

At our wedding people ranted and raved about the quality of the food, the abundance of food (trust me we didnt have a huge budget), and how attentive the servers were. They had food at our table for us the second we sat down and made sure we were accommodated. My guests say they felt the same way.

Jackie Hickey was our captain and she did a phenomenal job. Everything went perfect, and they might have been our best vendor. I would use them again for any event I have in the future.
