When beginning the planning process we contacted many catering companies for quotes. However, Grand Gourmet was the first and only caterer we did a tasting with. After meeting with Felix and tasting the food, we were sold! The food was amazing and he offered more unique choices than are traditionally found at weddings. Felix met with us multiple times throughout the process and was very flexible to what we wanted. Felix and his team handled everything perfectly on the day of. Everything was set up perfectly and the food was amazing. They were very attentive to my husband and I, always making sure we had eaten enough and making plates of appetizers for us. Everything was wonderful and we have received many compliments since, just fabulous!

Felix and his staff were the first that we had met on our lengthy process of searching for vendors. Although we knew right away, we still met with other caterers only to confirm our initial decision that this was the place to be. Extremely organized, great value and most importantly the greatest tasting food we had. Our change ups on decisions did not throw them off, they were very patient and understanding. They were very accommodating to our wants and needs and even changed up some items on their menu to make us happy. We are so happy to have found the perfect caterer who knew the venue so well. All they really cared about was making sure we were well fed on our wedding day! Thanks again for the best food and service on our special day!

Grand Gourmet helped make our wedding vision come true!! As a caterer, Grand Gourmet’s food is FANTASTIC! We had a sit down dinner and had many compliments from guests that it was the best food they ever had at a wedding. Grand Gourmet also did all of the set-up for our ceremony, which was done exactly as we described and imagined. Felix and his staff were great to work with! Thanks so much!!

I agree with the other reviewers. Grand Gourmet overall is a terrific caterer. They are a little flakey, and work on their own schedule, but if you have patience, and are comfortable leaving all the details in their hands, you\'ll be fine. The food was incredible. The food at the wedding was just as good as the tasting. And boy is there a lot of food. We had about 90 people, total cost of a little over $8k. 4 Passed aps, crudite, sit down dinner with sorbet, wedding cake and a closing station of sliders and french fries. What ever you do, DO the sliders! We had several phone calls the next day asking who the caterer was because they wanted to order the sliders! No joke, they were that good. Our guests were very impressed. Overall, being a control freak I was a little nervous, but the day of- Grand Gourmet was on top of everything! I don\'t have a single complaint about the day of. I would absolutely recommend them.

Felix was wonderful, though a little tricky to work with (not the most responsive at times). The food, however, was wonderful, and i received many many compliments on hoe good everything tasted! He was flexible and patient and really really easy to deal with. My husband and i are looking for an excuse to work with him again!

Felix has a really great catering company, and restaurant, Nini's Bistro, located in New Haven, CT. The food is exceptional, and he was very willing to work with our budget and our tastes. For about $85 a head, we were able to have 6 passed appetizers, stationary crudite and cheese tables, a salad course, a sorbet course, 3 entree plated dinner (filet, chicken, salmon) and a huge dessert spread featuring a chocolate fountain. Three days before my wedding, my chair cover company had cancelled our order because they had run out of covers- another story in itself- but one call to Felix, and within an hour, he had located the same style for a comparable price and took care of picking them up and his staff assembling them on the chairs.

Overall, it was a great experience, and I would recommend his company, but there were a few small problems worth mentioning. As part of our contract, we were supposed to have been given a "picnic basket" with goodies to snack on later in the night at the hotel, and a bottle of champagne. Well, our bartenders gave us the champagne, but the basket never showed up. It's one of those things that you realize in retrospect that you never got, but it's the least of your concerns at the end of the night! We caught several of his servers stealing things from us- flower vases, wedding favors, and bottles of water we had at the door for our parting guests. Also, we had kept a Calphalon pot in the kitchen to hold the flowers, and the head chef said that he would keep an eye on it. It vanished by the end of the night and Felix has yet to return the phone calls I've made to him in hopes of locating it. Even after tipping him 25% at the end of the night, you would think that he would have the decency to own up to not finding it...
