We absolutely loved our experience with Gourmet Fine Catering. We consulted with Christina Huffman, she was attentive and listened to our wishes. Our first tasting with them won us over, they provided exquisite food that we had chosen from their menu that fit our budget. They created a menu that my husband and I along with our guests enjoyed.

This will be the most complicated review I will have to write for any of our wedding vendors. My opinions on Gourmet's performance for our wedding are very mixed, and it has a lot to do with business changes that occurred over the course of time that I worked with them. I am not sure that I can recommend them under current management, though I would have recommended them before changes. I may have caught them at a bad leadership transitional time, but it is not necessarily excusable for them. Perhaps this further explanation can elaborate on what I mean:

We came to Gourmet via a recommendation from our venue. We worked at first with Darby Donahue, the president, who took our vague vision of "Colorado-style, local food," and absolutely ran with it. He created an incredibly gourmet, unique and characteristic menu that was sure to astound our guests. Darby also promised to manage a lot of the essential wedding details and minutiae, and we felt very confident in his hands.

Two weeks before the wedding, however, I reached out to Darby with a question and got a response from Christina Huffman, who told me that Darby was no longer with the company and that she would be taking over our wedding. Needless to say, this was a bit shocking and concerning two weeks before the wedding considering how much he had been in charge of!

So we took the time off of work to meet with her and our venue coordinator in order to get details straight. I outlined in detail many things such as expectations Darby had set as to his responsibilities, detailed diagrams as to how the tables were supposed to be set with menus and favors, etc.

Ultimately, Gourmet provided delicious, wonderful and interesting Colorado-themed food to our guests in a professional and courteous manner. However, crucial details were missed that caused the largest problems of the day.

While relatively minor, they did significant

I highly recommend Adrian for her hard work and professionalism. We had her do our wedding and the food was amazing. None of our guests had a single complaint about the service and all raved about the food. Even with a couple last minute changes, she rolled with it and kept things running super smoothly. Thanks so much for making your part of our day fantastic!! I would recommend her and her staff very highly!!!

Gourmet did our wedding two weeks ago and we couldn't have had a better experience on everything from the excellent food to the courteous staff. Darby Donohue was so accomodating and his staff were extremely helpful. Everyone did an amazing job from our first meeting leading all the way up to the big day. They also catered our rehearsal dinner which was also perfect. We have absolutely no reservations on recommending Darby and Gourmet Fine Catering.

Everyone still raves about the amazing food at my wedding. Gourmet provided me with passed hors d'houvres and a buffet for the price of what other companies would have charged for the buffet only, and the food was perfect. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I did have some difficulties getting in contact with them on occasion before the wedding, but by the day of, everything was great.

The staff was amazing during the reception. The bartenders were wonderful and kept everyone happy. They did a great job passing the appetizers around and getting the salads on the tables. The buffet lines were great and no one had to wait long to get food. Shannon was amazing taking care of myself and the groom. She always made sure we had drinks and helped us with the cake cutting! Everyone loved the food and it was delicious! The only things that I had issues with were one of the appetizers was not what I had wanted or had at the tasting.

In the end, everything with this caterer ended up wonderful, but it was quite a headache trying to get to that point. I went through three sales girls, the last was sprung on me 5 weeks before the wedding at which point I pretty much had to replan the wedding with her! It was a lot of work, but I am happy with the end result!

Gourmet Fine Catering has fabulous food, and the quality of food at the wedding was just as high as at their tasting facility. The quality of service was fabulous and responsive - however, 2 weeks before my event, my event coordinator quit. Several months before that, the pastry chef quit and we had to find a new baker. I would say I would recommend them - but the instability of their staff was disconcerting...luckily everything was fabulous at the wedding.
