My husband and I had a wonderful experience working with Gourmet Galley for our wedding reception. From the start, our planner approached our event with enthusiasm and creativity. She understood our needs and budget and exceeded our expectations at every level. Before contacting Gourmet Galley, I had some discouraging conversations with caterers who saw our venue as a series of expensive challenges and hidden costs. By contrast, Gourmet Galley embraced our venue and gave us great suggestions about how to have a great event there. Throughout the process, our planner's professionalism and sense of celebration was exceptional, and we really appreciated it.

Our wedding reception was warm, elegant, and filled with delicious food. Many of our guests said it was the best food that they had ever had at a wedding, and we agreed. Gourmet Galley's staff was unfailingly gracious and attentive, despite the fact that we were married during a blizzard. Although the weather was a challenge, everyone worked to make the event a special one. Our guests came to a wedding celebration filled with delicious food and a welcoming atmosphere. It was everything that we had hoped for and more.

From day one, working with Gourmet Galley was an exceptional experience. Keri was immediately responsive to my inquiry, and we had a meeting right away to discuss a proposal. I gave her my budget, which she totally worked within, tweaking things here and there so we weren't completely breaking the bank but still getting the best quality. We then had a couple more meetings and tastings to finalize details, and Keri totally worked with our schedule as we were in the process of moving across the country. A couple months before the wedding, Keri left for maternity leave, and plans seamlessly shifted over to Kelly. Kelly picked up right where Keri left off; the two are phenomenal. Kelly contacted all my vendors and coordinated where they would set up, when, etc. as well as working with us to tweak the menu once again when we fell on some unexpected financial hardship.

When there was confusion a couple days prior as to who would coordinate the ceremony, Kelly immediately stepped in to provide her services with short notice. She did a fantastic job coordinating all my groomsmen, bridesmaids, flower girls and ceremony pianist as well as setting up reception decor. Day of, the whole catering team worked wonderfully. They had the difficult job of flipping the ceremony room into the reception and dancing area which they did without a hitch. I had heard of a snafu with the food being late and the signature drink running out early, but both issues were taken care of quickly. The food was delicious, just like at the tasting. Everyone complimented the food and the service the whole night. At the end of the night, the team cleaned up everything from the party, broke down the tables quickly and took care of everything. It truly was a night to remember and it could not have happened as seamlessly without the amazing work of Gourmet Galley.

We could not have been happier with Gourmet Galley Catering! The service, food and presentation exceeded all of our expectations! The staff, especially the bridal attendants, were so wonderful! I was never left wanting for anything. Also, the bartenders went out of their way to remember key people in the wedding party and their preferred drinks. I was told by one guest that the bartender tracked him down on the dance floor with his requested margarita. Gourmet Galley made our wedding day feel very special, elegant and effortless. I would love to work with them again in the future. Planning a wedding can be very stressful at times but if you hire them, you can relax. (I know that's easy for me to say now that it's over but I truly mean it:) I wish I had the peace of mind ahead of time to know we were in such great hands.

Gourmet Galley catered my 11 October wedding at Harkness Memorial Park in Waterford, CT. They are one of the 6 caterers that you must use if you have a wedding at Harkness. We wanted to hire them as soon as we saw the Fall Stations Sample Menu on their website. The food was superb. Many guests said that we won the prize for best food at any wedding they had ever attended. GG also made our cake and it was delicious. My husband and I had almost half the bottom tier left over (in addition to the saved top tier) that they wrapped up for us. We've been eating leftover cake for four days now and we still marvel at how good it is every single day.

My one knock on Gourmet Galley is that sometimes I had to prod a few times to get questions answered via email during the planning stages. On the other hand, they helped with other things, such as securing heaters for the tent and securing the linen/tableware rentals. While responsiveness prior to the wedding was sometimes frustrating, their responsiveness at the wedding was impeccable.

I need to specifically comment regarding two of their employees. Brenda was our on-site coordinator, and she was fabulous. My husband's grandmother was too frail to walk to the food stations, and my husband asked his brother to get her a plate of food. When his brother did not want to help out, Brenda stepped in immediately, sat down next to his grandma and told her all the menu items, and had a plate served to her at the table.

Jenna was our personal attendant. She found us in the middle of the park taking pictures during cocktail hour and brought us glasses of water. She brought a tray of hors d'oeuvres and drinks to us in the bridal room while we waited to do our reception entrance. She was always nearby in case we needed anything and she attended to my mother, too. We were so happy with GG - I only wish I had been hungry enough to eat more!

Gourmet Galley did a phenomenal job catering our wedding. The food was absolutely outstanding—I have never seen so many clean plates at a wedding, and several people told me after that it was the best food they have had at a wedding- EVER! The steak, in particular was to die for; the appetizers and desserts were creative, fun and delicious, and they pulled off our custom cocktails beautifully and flawlessly--the truth is, EVERYTHING was good! My parents are familiar with the food industry, and having good food was very important to us. Gourmet Galley was the only local catering company to pass muster and to provide us with assurance that everything would be fresh, delicious and exceptionally executed. They did not let us down!
In addition to the beautiful and delicious food, and the helpful and supportive staff, Gourmet Galley also offers day-of coordinating services. Jen was a dream to work with, both day-of and during the planning stages. Her advice and ideas were so helpful and her on- the- spot troubleshooting was priceless. She was also so kind and patient with us and handled the many set-up changes we threw at her during the planning process smoothly and efficiently. I cannot thank her enough and I don’t think we could have pulled off our absolutely beautiful, perfect day without her.
I am so glad we went with Gourmet Galley for our wedding day! Thank you so much for helping us pull off our dream wedding!

My day went as well as I could have imagined and it had a lot to do with the fact that the Gourmey Galley staff had everything under control so that we could enjoy the party. We picked a spot where they essentially had to do everything, and that they did!

I would recommend the team at Gourmet Galley especially Jennifer Glissmeyer without hesitation or any reservations. The team was accommodating to our special requests and needs. They are professional and delivered all that we had dreamed of and more on the day of our wedding. My husband and I are big foodies so the food that was served at our wedding was of the utmost importance and they delivered! We had approximately 150 guests at Saltwater Farms Vineyard. Our protein options were filet of beef, chicken and scollops. Our guests could not have complemented us more on how great the food was and the doneness of the proteins was spot on. The presentation of both the main courses, hors d'oeuvres and desserts were plated beautifully. They truly not only have an eye for great flavors but also the platting.

We recently had our wedding catered through Gourmet Galley. We worked with Marissa from the beginning. At first, she was super attentive and was the main reason we chose to work with them. After we signed the contract, she tended to need a little encouragement to respond. It was a little frustrating at times, but I'm sure she was very busy.

It's hard to judge the "value" we got without having planned a wedding meal before. We spent $60/person for food, $20 for alcohol (beer, wine + signiature drink), $20 for rentals, plus the service charges and all that for 130 people. We used a friend for dessert and also had an ice cream truck, so those costs were not included. The appetizers were delicious and plentiful. We even had a girl named Jackie who was really sweet that came around to us personally to make sure that we got to try everything. That was awesome! The buffet itself was good, although the display was a bit underwhelming. They arranged eveything on 2 tables when everything could have fit on 1, so it looked a little stingy. Everyone had enough food and people went back for seconds, too.

As for their help on the big day, they were awesome! I had asked people to help set up certain things, and their workers came in and took over so that everyone could relax. The tables looked great, they set up the escort cards, table numbers and even the mantles.

All in all, I'd definitely work with them again. I would be a bit less shy of asking for what I want and be a little more on top of Marissa since I'm sure it's easy to get lost in the mix. But overall, everyone was happy and full!
