Not very happy with service or the quality of food. It rained for a couple minutes when the reception was starting and staff did not want to help us move the tables. I understant that the time is tight and they have things to do, but the whole reception would have been ruined if all the chairs were wet. I think such details play a huge role in how the business is perceived. We were not happy about that. Food looked somewhat sloppy as well. Tasted ok, nothing spectacular.

MENTEmanagement responded with the following comments:

This event was held outside on a pool deck. When it started raining, our staff moved all the tables and chairs under a small overhang which was the only option available, we also wiped all the chairs down and reset all the tables as is expected from a reputable company. At this time, the cocktail had already started so our staff was spread thin doing these unexpected tasks, which we happily accommodated. After setting up the tables, the client then asked for us to move the tables inside the house, at a different location. This 3rd move was impossible for us to do given the timeline of the event and the staff available (the client had specifically hired staff by the hour and did not want to pay overtime). We did everything we could to accommodate the rain issue. Regarding the food, we received many many compliments, especially from the owner of the house (who had lent his property for this beautiful event).

After speaking with several local caterers, I finally was put in touch with Randy at Whole Foods. After speaking with her, I never looked back. Randy was so attentive, professional and FUN to work with. Whole Foods provided a lovely cocktail reception with a wide selection of delicious food for our guests. They took care of everything from renting additional supplies to flipping the space and making sure that our bride and groom were taken care of during the reception. I highly recommend this vendor!

Words cannot express how wonderful Chef Howard and Sharon of Catering Concepts are! Sharon walked me through the wedding planning process completely. She has a wonderful personality and loves what she does.They were beyond attentive to my budget and needs and created a perfect menu. My guest are still talking about the chicken with chorizo stuffing. Sharon the "Lechon" was a hit! with my island family. The garlic mash potatoes and the veggie medley to die for...and it wasn't just me. My guests were over the moon for your food!!! Which means more to me than so many other details of the wedding. Concept catering will do thier absolute best to treat you the day of like a princess. After the ceremony and cocktail hour, sharon brought over to our sweet heart table a tray with all our cocktail hour selctions. CRAB CAKES!!! To die for and bruchetta that cannot be described...I could go on but lastly I will just say using Catering concepts was by far the best decision I made for my wedding and only wish other brides get the wonderful treatment that I did.

The food was fantastic and our guests have raved about it all week! The only reason I gave a 4.5 instead of a 5 is because a DELICIOUS salad other than the caesar salad that our daughter had requested was served.( Must have been a misunderstanding because the one that was served was the one WE wanted not what the bride wanted.) Also we were told there would be roasted potatoes and carrots along with the beef and gravy and there wasn't. HOWEVER, the chef may not have thought we wanted that in addition to the mashed potatoes and vegetable medley that we requested. These are very minor things and we would highly recommend Catering Concepts. Sharon was wonderful to deal with and made sure everything was just right...I also need to mention that the venue we booked DID NOT have ANY kitchen facilities and it was about 45 min. to an hour away! Our guests were amazed that Sharon and her crew were able to serve the food as if it were cooked and prepared on premises.

Catering Concepts was an absolute dream to work with for our beach wedding. Sharon Muriente worked with us to create the most beautiful day while working within our budget. We met with Sharon about 7 months before the wedding and immediately were put at ease knowing we had the best person to assist us with putting together the important details. Sharon booked our food, photographer, DJ, cake, tables/chairs, décor, flowers for the ceremony and reception (except for the bouquets/boutonnieres…per my request), as well as a full open bar. I honestly did not have to worry about a single thing on our wedding day except for being a bride!

We attended a tasting event with Chef Howard a couple of months before the wedding and got a sampling of what we would have at our wedding, including wine. We went with passed hors d’ouevres for the cocktail hour and a buffet dinner with our choice of entrees. Sharon and her staff ensured that my husband and I were able to eat and drink while getting our photographs taken by bringing trays out to the wedding party. Our guests raved about the food and went back for seconds and thirds! We actually sent food home with many of our guests and froze the rest for future meals.

The cake was absolutely gorgeous and consisted of a bottom layer of chocolate and a top layer of amaretto. It was moist and went well with a full coffee / tea station.

The décor was beautiful with purple orchids wrapped around bamboo poles and tiki torches wrapped with flowing fabric to coordinate with the wedding colors for our ceremony. The reception was so gorgeous with extra tall vases filled with orchids, little bouquets of hydrangea and fantastic bark pieces delightfully set with more orchids. We had candles to provide soft lighting and lavender accents…along with some pieces I created myself to bring our purple starfish theme to life.

Sharon and her staff ensured that everyone had enough food, drinks and had the best time ever. They were polite, courteous and very professional. They handled everything from set-up to break down and made sure that our venue looked the same when we left as when we entered.

I would highly recommend Catering Concepts to anyone who wants a stress free event that will be planned to perfection!

We chose Catering Concepts based on the fact that they were the most flexible with us on creating a unique menu and they're prices were reasonable; they even worked with us adjusting the price according to what we wanted to spend more money on and vice versa. We also chose them because you get two tastings-one general one to see what Chef Howard's cooking is like (Amazing by the way!) and the second one to taste additional items from their menu or to sample some of the entrees and sides specific to your wedding menu. Both of these tastings were delectable!!! We wanted Indian/Latin food fusion and we got it with Cashew yogurt Chicken Korma, Gallo Pinto, Cinnamon Saffron Rice, Spiced green beans, and mahi mahi with a tropical salsa. It really was great to work with Chef Howard and it's clear that he knows ethnic food and can elegantly fuse different concepts together.

They are also one of the highest rated catering companies in South Florida. We enjoyed working with Sharon, their event manager. She had some lovely ideas that really helped us to shape the look and feel of our day. As a very popular company, they were not as responsive as I would have liked; however, they were VERY flexible. We were transferred across the country three months before our wedding. At our request last minute, we were able to schedule our venue walk-through and final tasting before the big move. Sadly, it seemed to me that the food just didn't taste as good on our wedding day as it did at our final tasting, but this might have been because they were cooking for more people or because I wasn't thinking so much about the food, or because with every bite I swallowed I could feel my dress getting tighter and tighter. The mojito that the bartender made me was the best I've ever had in my life though. Nevertheless, everyone LOVED our food and some thank me to this day that we featured Indian food.

Recently my husband and I hosted a rehearsal dinner for our son's wedding. We had Catering Concepts cater the affair. They arrived on time and set up a beautiful buffet. The food was amazing! The guest went back for seconds and there was plenty of food for everyone. They will certainly cater my next event.
Thank you for making the party a success!

We used catering concepts for our wedding. We had two different choices for dinner and both were very good. They also provided our bar service. I took away points since the drinks were slightly weak. They also cut my wedding cake and just left a few pieces on the table. Didn't pass it out to the guests. I didn't notice since I was everywhere that night. I am lucky my planner saved us some otherwise I wouldn't of even tasted it.

The only negative I have to say is that every little thing is extra. However, I think this is always the case when using a catering company. Overall- Very good!

Our relationship with this vendor was managed by our wedding planner, Melissa Caceres of Events on a Budget (http://www.eventsonabudget.com). I really enjoyed the invitation to Chef Howard's kitchen and have a nice tasting event (with wine!). My husband and I actually went twice. Once to try the food and the second time because we chose a few menu items we had not tried and Chef Howard offered to have our selections at the tasting, so we could try them. He was very professional, knowledgeable and we could tell right off the bat he is very committed to the quality of his work. My husband and I missed most of the cocktail hour since we were taking pictures, but when we sat down for dinner, they brought over an entire plate of bite-sized crab cakes with this amazing sauce. I couldn't stop eating them! The food was great, too. Very big portions of meat. I couldn't eat it all because I was tied into a corset dress and it was NOT going to let me fill up on food, lol. Highly recommend trying the honey nut crusted chicken, garlic smashed potatoes, crab cakes, Asian salad and beef with shallot brandy glaze. Amazing, amazing, amazing.

"This staff is VERY professional and did an outstanding job on everything! I recommend them and plan on using them on any other event we have. They not only provided the catering they also can provided other services as they are a full-service catering company. They beautifully set up the tables, decorations, candles, centerpieces, place cards- you name it they did it! The chef was amazing, we had paella at our wedding and everyone loved it. We still hear compliments about the food until now! The appetizers were to die for!! You will not be disappointed with the food everything was amazing! Sharon handled the wedding planning services- she has an eye for detail and is very professional! She really helped me feel at ease on our big day. Everything went smoothly and perfect thanks to Sharon. The staff complied of waiters and bartenders are very polite, professional and provide quality service. I can honestly say they were amazing and I was NOT happy with some of my other vendors (like the DJ) so I really wish I would have used them for all my wedding services! You can't go wrong with them! Thanks Sharon at Catering Concepts!"

Very easy to work with. They will figure out a way for you to stay in budget. We got a great value for our money. The tasting we had prior to our wedding was out of this world!

A couple flaws:
We were supposed to have beef in a mushroom wine sauce. Had no sauce at the wedding.
Our wedding was supposed to start at 6:30pm. Fortunately it didn't start until 7pm because the tables were not set up until 6:40! (Our ceremony and reception were at the same place). We also did not receive our package of food to take with us to the hotel as promised.

However, overall a good experience and a good value.

MENTEmanagement responded with the following comments:

Catering Concepts provided the menu selected by our client; some guests even came back for seconds on garlic smashed potatoes topped with the beef sauce (not sure if the couple's plate simply did not have much sauce). The package selected by our client was a 4 hour package, from 7:00p-11:00p; our setup was ready at 6:40pm (20 minutes earlier than the scheduled "ready" time).

MENTEmanagement responded with the following comments:

Catering Concepts' standard packages do not include setting up of centerpieces, candles, favors or any other items provided by the client, unless is something fairly simple (lighting candles, placing centerpieces that are already put together, even placing votives at the tables); we are always willing to help. In this case, the client was requesting our staff to unpack, assemble and set candleholder centerpieces and a large number of candles which needed to be upacked; and we had not allocated time in our setup schedule for these duties. As a professional company, we will do everything we can to create a successful event, always making sure we fulfill our contracted obligations first and then "our staff is all yours". Once all our scheduled setup was done, we handled our client's last minute request on time for a very successful event.
