Ms. Kristy is the best caterer we could have possibly asked for. She was truly a blessing in every way. Her meatballs were a smashing hit during cocktail hour (and during the bridal party post wedding recovery) and her chicken and sweet mashed potatoes were delightfully delicious down to the last bite. Not only was her food and her service exceptional, Ms. Kristy was kind to us and made several concessions in an effort to make our wedding reception the best it could possibly be. In sum, she was very responsive, she was flexible and we have benefitted from her services since the wedding and we intend to continue our relationship with her not just as her clients but as her friends. We recommend this vendor to friends, family, strangers and anyone who wishes to have exceptional service for a competitive price!

Honesty Gourmet Caterers is absolutely fabulous! Planning my wedding was one of the most unexpectedly stressful times of my life. However, Ms. Kristy and her staff made the process seamless. The food was outstanding and my guests were pleased with the level of professionalism that was shown at our reception. I told Ms. Kristy after the wedding she's going nowhere, you're stuck with me! I have referred her services to several people since our event and will use her again for other events that I plan.

I had Honesty Gourmet Caterers cater my daughter's Graduation Banquet. The food was awesome and so good. There was plenty of food for everyone to eat and even food left over. The most compliments were given to their delicious crab cakes. I will be using them again for future events.

Chef Kristy was awesome to work with. I wanted a fusion menu of Asian and American foods and she helped me to come up with the perfect menu. The day of my wedding I felt like royalty. The food was out of this world. I got so many requests from guests for their info. They went above and beyond to help make my wedding day all that I could ask for. Thank you Chef Kristy.

Working with Honesty Gourmet was a dream! Our wedding party had a number of food allergies we were working around, and I had my heart set on Asian-Fusion cuisine- which other caterers told me couldn't be done with the restrictions on the ingredients. Kristy made it happen, and the food was fabulous! Even my aunt, who is notoriously difficult to satisfy, agreed that it was the best food she had ever had at a wedding. I can't wait to use Honesty Gourmet for my next large event!

Let me 1st say that the food they provided for cocktail hr and the reception were GREAT. All the guests kept talking about how good the food was! So if you are just looking for good food, you will definitely get that with Honesty Gourmet. If you are looking for good food, good communication, AND good service, you may run into an issue like I did.

I was referred to Honesty Gourmet by the gentleman (Amil) who was doing my lighting. His mom actually is the owner of Honesty Gourmet (Ms. Kristy). Amil seemed to be responsible for the business part of the catering (which was confusing since he was doing my lighting), so I was mainly in contact with him after our tasting... In the weeks leading up to the wedding, I reached out to Amil to inquire about changes I wanted to make, and he was non responsive for 2 weeks. In turn I reached out to Ms. Kristy. She was very sweet and tried to be helpful, but kept saying she needed to check with Amil (but aren't you the caterer?)... A few weeks before the wedding I was told about several things I needed to purchase for cocktail hr. (that I wasn't aware of). I also had trouble with Amil and Ms. Kristy responding to me on calls and emails... The day of the wedding, they arrived an hr late, which delayed the tables and chairs being setup (they were coming from another event, wow). They didn't want to sign off or take the cake from the bakery that was delivering it, the servers weren't pleasant & didn't refill water. The servers also reached over people while clearing tables. They also misplaced my to go cupcakes boxes, so guests didn't take them home, and I was left with a TON of cupcakes, which was a waste of money.
