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.

Gourmet Fine Catering was absolutely wonderful!! They were very accomodating with the fact that I didn't live in Denver and the wedding was in a 3rd location. The food was so good and the staff was amazing. They pretty much took on the role of wedding planner as well. They handled the rentals for all of our linens (including chair covers), china, and crystal and did better than I could have by myself. I could not have been happier with my choice in caterer.

Overall, I was very pleased with Gourmet. There were a couple of glitches on the day when they lost the toasting champagne we had gone out of our way to buy, didn't use the dishes we brought for cake, and didn't offer coffee to any of our guests. The food, however, was Delicious an the staff was very professional. I would highly recommend Gourmet Fine Catering. However, I would not let them do your rental order - take the extra time to do it yourself. I had a hard time communicating what I wanted through the caterer and ended up doing it myself. If you are looking for good food and a good staff the day of the event, definitely go with Gourmet Fine Catering.

Gourmet Fine Catering with out a doubt is delicious! Nothing but compliments on the taste! They made our comfort food theme with a little bit of glam perfectly. The service the day of my wedding was great...everyone was attentive and wonderful. However, the communication pre-wedding was a little off. I got switched through 3 different food designers (due to changes in the company). And, sometimes I felt like I was waiting for some time before getting a response. As a bride that was frustrating. In the end, everything was above expectations! I would highly recommend.

The tasting was easy. We went the non-traditional route of only apps and random desserts. They were responsive, kind and made it easy to do business with. The food was great, and they accommodated a great anniversary surprise of allowing my husband to order a replica of our wedding menu for our 1st anniversary. Awesome!

Hillary took great care of us for our wedding. She had me drop off all extras to her a few days before the wedding, just so that I had no worries the day of! She only had one breif question during set-up, and it was an unforseen circumstance. Amazing service, and a great price!! Don't believe those caterers who say that less expensive means less service!

We worked with Kristin, who was fun, kind and most of all patient while we tried to figure out what we wanted and what we could afford.

The food and service were both outstanding! We have gotten tons of compliments on the food as well as the cake! It was also a bonus to have the cake done by the caterer ... one less vendor to deal with!!

HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend Fine Gourmet!

GFC worked with us to create a menu that was delicious, unique, and reflected the casual elegance we wanted our wedding to emulate. Gourmet mac n’ cheese station, Fried green tomato BLT’s, sliders, salads and dips, GFC provided a yummy menu that our friends and family can’t stop talking about!!
Kristin was a delight to work with: professional and accommodating, and her team was always on top of what needed to be done. With our quick cocktail hour and partying guests, we maybe should have had one more staff member to help set up tables or bartend, but overall we had an excellent time at our reception, and I would definitely recommend Gourmet Fine Catering to anyone planning a wedding!!

Kristin was a pleasure to work with. She certainly knows her business and was incredibly helpful with all the little details of our reception. She did a great job of helping us make the menu "kid friendly" which was very important to us. The only glitch was that our table signs didn't make it into frames, but that was a minor detail. The food was excellent as was the service.

Kristin and the team at Gourmet Fine Catering did an amazing job for our wedding! It took us forever to pick a caterer and I am so happy we went with them. They really worked with us on the menu and found what worked with our budget and our tastes. we had a couple of tricky special meals we needed and they did a fantastic job! We got so many compliments on the food - it was exactly what we wanted and even enjoyed it the next day while hanging out with our families. The sliders at the end of the night were so tasty.

Thanks again!

To all brides out there, I cannot urge you strongly enough NOT to use Gourmet Fine Catering in Denver. They made my event a disaster that still pains me today. Here are only SOME of the things that took place:

1, Food display looked nothing like we had arranged with our planner. It was tropical so we had agreed on fruits and flowers surrounding the food trays but instead we got drab white platters with not even a garnish.
2, Staff was not set up in time with passed appetizers and drinks on the lawn, so everyone went inside an hour early (the cocktail hour was to take place on the lawn).
3, Catering staff did not put out the sauce for the chicken; my mom went to ask for it and they brought it out eventually . . without a serving spoon.
4, DJ announced cake cutting twice, myself and groom standing there, the crowd was gathered around and it became apparent that no one from Gourmet was going to bring a cake knife/server, photographer had to go back to the kitchen for it.
5, Gourmet staff arranged the ceremony chairs on the lawn such that I had to walk in front of my Dad down the aisle.
6, Bartenders said they were out of specialty drink when there were gallons of it in the kitchen.
7, Wasted hundreds on glassware rental that wasn't used because bartenders brought out plastic.

I'm grateful for the many wonderful memories I have from our wedding day, but also often think of all the embarrassing moments that happened because of Gourmet Catering's complete carelessness. The planner we had met with multiple times to arrange the details didn't even stop by our wedding! It seems there was a bigger (more expensive) event happening the same day and so we got the "B" staff. They knew nothing of what we had planned and beyond that, showed very poor quality of service. Please don't even think of having Gourmet Catering host your wedding or other important event!! One final note, I later learned our local consumer bureau rating: F (if only I had checked).
