Our Reaearsal dinner catered by Kathy G. And Company at her venue Park Lane in Birmingham was a smashing success!! We received MANY compliments from our friends and family in attendance from North and South Carolina, New York, Indiana and Alabma. They commented on the elegant sophistication of Park Lane and the creative presentation of the delicious food. Our coordinator, Natalie made everyone feel calm and organized with her gracious manner. I would highly recommend Kathy G. for any very special occasion!

We were planning a wedding with all of the parties in different states. We had it at a venue that recommended Kathy G's and they shined! Everything was perfect. They were on time to set up, the food was delicious, and the staff over the top. They did everything we asked of them and more. Thanks for a dream wedding.

Kathy G & Company came very highly recommended to us & it is no surprise why! They provide excellent customer service & of course DELICIOUS food!!!!! It was a joy to work w/ them. They went above & beyond the day of. The set up looked phenomenal, they made plates separately for myself, my new husband & our photographers so we could eat privately after not having had anything all day while everyone else watched a video made for us by a friend. Also in the hecticness of detail prep we didn't designate a family member to cut our cakes so a couple of their workers sent to us that day did it & then made us up a beautiful little going away basket when we exited! If anyone is looking for a caterer look no further! People still continue to RAVE over the food served!

As always Kathy G and company were "over the top". They did an unbelievable rehearsal dinner and wedding day lunch , ending 2013 with the most unbelievable wedding celebration. All were a Kathy G production from "soup to nuts" including decorating. Nine months earlier my now son in law said "We are getting married HERE (venue) because there is a certain caterer your mother wants to use?" Yes! And mother in law was right!

Katelyn exceeded my expectations in every way! She helped me plan the entire event from 1000 miles away. She understood exactly what I wanted and I trusted her to help me bring my ideas to fruition. It turned out to be incredible and came off without a hitch! My guests are still talking about what a great time they had and how delicious the food was. They also really enjoyed the motorcoach from the hotel to the reception.

The best decision we made was choosing Kathy G's for our catering. Katelyn from the team was wonderful to work with. Out of all the things that caused us some stress in planning our wedding, none had to do with Kathy G's. It was so nice to have someone we could completely trust with our reception needs.

After the wedding I was told my many of our guests how amazing the food at the reception was.

I really can't say enough about Kathy G's services. I highly recommend them to any bride looking for a caterer or more!

Best food I've ever eaten at a wedding. Super easy to work with - probably the best caterer in Birmingham, Alabama.

Katie and her team from Kathy G. & Company did an amazing job! Thanks everyone so much. Everyone thought the food was delicious, the displays (especially the Tuscan Bar and grass flats with lolis) were beautiful, and the staff was really organized.
Andy did our flowers and we were blown away! Again, thanks everyone!

I used Kathy G & Company for my catering, floral (KG Designs), and reception venue (Park Lane). This made it really easy, and they also provided wonderful service. My unconventionally timed 11am wedding was no problem for Mary at Park Lane. She suggested an appropriate lunch time menu that had my guests raving about the food. Andy at KG Designs also helped me find a way to make my money go further with my floral decisions. Finally, the Park Lane venue is so beautiful--it really is a great space for day or night. Kathy G made my wedding day as beautiful and hassle-free as possible--which is exactly what I wanted!

Natalie was absolutely wonderful to work with. She takes the time to do the small extras i.e.(the pretty 'to go' box for the bride/groom), and she always got back to us when committed or even before.
While one of the more expensive caterers in town, the quality of the food is much better also and Natalie is continually checking on the quality of the service.
The only thing I was not that happy with the servers at the bars: the signature drink was poured and many many guests were drinking one before the wedding service even took place. The bartenders inside were not really friendly nor very concerned with making sure all of the beers the groom chose were out and served.
Other than that, beautiful job and we would definitely use Kathy G's again.

Kathy G catered my rehearsal dinner at the Gardens Cafe at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. Kathy G is the exclusive caterer/florist for the Gardens Cafe. The setting is completely private and a beautiful 2 story dining room. We had a food tasting and Natalie Pilato was very responsive to our feedback on how to "kick up the spice" on the food. Many people commented how delicious the food was and how beautiful the decor was. The staff service was great too! I highly recommend Kathy G!

When the wedding party arrived for pictures nothing was ready, dirty tables were still there, and when they did the cleanup they only pushed those tables and boxes off to the side. The only bathrooms available to the venue were dirty and nasty. When we complained they said the bathrooms are not their responsibility -although they are the bathrooms that were for that venue. Unfortunately wedding guests could still see them. In addition, the food was terrible. When we met to plan the catering menu, we pointed out many items on their menu that were beautifully displayed individually plated. We even told them that's why we picked them -because of the pictures that showed us how each of hors d'oeuvre were individually plated on a little plate or in a little glass bowl. The food looked absolutely delicious – in their pictures. It was not what we got! Instead we had big silver chafing dishes that had what looked like chicken fingers in it with a clear glass bowl beside it with some kind of sauce she could dip into. The little crabcakes that had been individually display and beautifully garnished in the picture was also served in a big silver chafing dish and were about a 10th of the size showned in the picture. They look like flat quarters. Worst part was when I opened a third chafing dish and saw what looked like A big pan of green slime. I had to ask the caterer what was in the pan. . It was some kind of dip. Place beside it was a clear glass mixing bowl into which they poured a bag of Tostitos. What happened to the individually cooked pita chips they promised us. Unfortunately the food did not even taste good. So disappointed!!!! When I wrote the caterer and told her of the problems that we had-including pictures of what we were promised and pictures of what we got- the only thing she offered us was that next time we hire her she would do a better job.

TERRIBLE! Unresponsive to the point that I was scared he wouldn't even show up on my wedding day. Does not listen to a single word you say about what you want. Actually, it almost seems that he DOES listen, but only so that he can figure out how to do the EXACT OPPOSITE! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE USE *ANYONE* ELSE FOR A FLORIST!!!!!

I tried relentlessly to get the florist to call me back so that I could sign the contract and pay the deposit. I finally gave into my wedding coordinator's advice and just mailed the deposit and waited to get the contract at a later time. The WEEK OF the wedding, he FINALLY sent the contract.

At our initial meeting, I looked through the albums of his work and showed him the backdrop/altar decorations I liked. I pointed to one picture and said, "This is EXACTLY what I want. EXACTLY. I wouldn't change a single thing!" When I got to my venue, it was not even remotely close. I had told him that I absolutely did NOT under ANY circumstances want an arch!!!!! It was an arch. I told him I wanted the pretty pinks and yellows and peaches of the flowers in the picture. I got empty branches and dead flowers. I'm not kidding - dead, dried flowers!! I told him I absolutely did NOT want a white background b/c my dress would blend in and b/c I don't like white. My backdrop was plain white fabric!

Now, the bouquet was GORGEOUS! HOWEVER, I pointed out to him at our meeting that I'm very petite and my dress is huge, so I wanted a smaller bouquet - nothing that would overwhelm my small frame and take away from my big, poofy (and incredibly expensive) dress. I wound up with a TEN POUND bouquet that was nearly TWO FEET IN DIAMETER! I asked for darker colors in my bridesmaids' bouquets. What I got was almost completely white bridesmaids bouquets. AND TO TOP IT OFF, HE FORGOT TO EVEN MAKE A TOSSING BOUQUET FOR ME, which was in my contract!!!
