We were very happy with Olympia's catering services. They provided us with everything we asked for, including an open bar, wedding cake, rentals & of course the food. Their staff & team were all very polite & helpful during the reception. The food & cake were delicious & all of our guests were very pleased with everything.

Olympia catering was absolutely fantastic!! From the food to the service we were beyond pleased! Our wedding guests raved about how terrific the food was and how friend the staff was. The staff even brought out snacks for the kids at our wedding to cater more towards what they would like and to keep them busy. I also had one of the staff members help my bridesmaid bustle my dress. I wish I would have gotten her name to properly thank her for all that she did. Everyone was so friendly and attentive and they even packed me and my husband "to go" boxes from our dinner since we didn't really get a chance to eat. Thank you so much Olympia catering!!

I have mixed feelings about Olympia. I will start with the lack of communication and the time it took to get responses from Sherri was not good. I had sent emails to her and sometimes it would take 3 weeks to get a response, I had to call to them to get a response and she was never available to speak with. On the day of the wedding, while Sherri was setting up, she was very abrupt and not friendly when I mentioned that we had 1 person added to list but many others did not come, and she said "what are we supposed to feed them"? Why would it matter, everyone except 2 people got the same plated meal. Very unprofessional.

For the rest of the evening if I needed anything from Olympia I dealt with Kathy or with my day of the event coordinator, Nancy Hall.

We were advised that the bridal party would have their appetizers upstairs delivered to us, but we had to go down and request the appetizers and then they only gave us 8 of each item, but there were 10 in the bridal party. We also requested special appetizers for the bride and groom and it took forever to get those as well.

The servers were very slow to serve all tables and I did have to ask them to serve food to a table that was waiting a very long time when others were already done.

On a positive note the food was very delicious. I have to say that Kathy the lead server was excellent, she was very professional and had good communication skills.

All I can say is WOW!!! Olympia has truly been an amazing company to work with! From the moment we started communicating with Olympia we were impressed with their professionalism, responsiveness and flexibility. They made our wedding day feel special and did not treat us like we were "just another wedding." Not only did they provide exceptional service, but their food was delicious! We looked at numerous catering companies and Olympia surpassed all of them! Our wedding reception was beautiful and the food and cake were great! Everything ran smoothly from start to finish. We are so thankful we chose Olympia, they do not disappoint!

We ordered our wedding cake through Olympia and it was nothing short of delicious. The cake turned out beautiful and exactly as I'd pictured. Debbie was easy to work with and incredibly kind. The value was one of the best I found in Tampa. They were reasonably priced and yet the cake was divine! So thanks to Olympia for our wonderful cake!

I wish I could give these people higher than a 5!!! The wedding cake was the best wedding cake I have ever had and it was so beautiful!!! They are affiliated with the St. Petersburg Museum of Fine Arts. The food was absolutely the BEST!! We got so many compliments. We couldn't have asked for better servers. They were dedicated to making our daughter and son-in-law's wedding the best and it was! This is NOT your typical wedding banquet food. It is SOOOOO much more. Try their signature chicken. Melts in your mouth!!! They are the BEST!!!!!!!! Nancy, the coordinator through Olympia, helped our daughter and son-in-law through the process. We are very thankful for all of her hard work and dedication. She even came to the wedding. She didn't have to but she was there. Meant so much to us!!! A top notch vendor. I just don't think there is anyone out there better than Olympia!!!

I used the Olympia delivery and drop off menu. We ordered the Bayshore Buffet. They arrived timely and placed the food in our warmers. The salad was fresh and delicious. The presentation of the food looked great. We ordered the Chicken Alfredo pasta, the guest enjoyed it , it was a tad bit oily (sauce) but it was good. We also ordered the upside down pineapple cake, can you say YUMMY; moist and simply delicious. Thank you Olympia.

From the beautiful details, to the different flavors, that cake was the most beautiful cake I have ever seen.

Olympia Catering was wonderful to work with from beginning to end. Taryn, Alison, and Sherry were delightful and so easy to work with.

My husband and I didn’t even bother checking out other caterers after our sample tasting; that’s how good their food is! You NEED to get their Signature Chicken and their Pasta Station, no question about it! I wish I could rate Olympia higher than 5 stars because they deserve it.

Don’t let me forget about their wedding cake; it was absolutely delicious! We ordered the yellow cake with guava as well as the white cake with strawberry…YUM! Debbie, outdid herself and brought my vision to life perfectly.

Everything was flawless! We’re still getting rave reviews from our family and friends two months later. Best wedding food ever!

My daughter Melissa and her husband Emmanuel had their ceremony and reception at the MFA St. Pete and we could not have been more pleased. Olympia Catering is the vendor for the site and they could not have done a better job!! Nancy was our main contact and she was also contracted as a "day of coordinator", perfect choice. We used the garden for the ceremony, terrace for cocktail hour, and main event space for reception - three great areas, all different and a few steps to each for the guest.

The food was phenomenal! Hors d'oeuvres came out on time and hot and serves were always there with more. The bride and groom choose three unique stations and each was delicious and a fun way for the guests to make their choices. This is hard to execute, but Chef Stuart pulled it off with a bang and Lisa and her team did a fantastic job as well.

As most of my family are "industry people" I was waiting to hear their reviews - nothing but excellent. Melissa and Emmanuel said their wedding went just the way they planned.

Hats off to the entire team at Olympia Catering and the MFA venue for making my daughters wedding an event to remember.
Much Thanks,
Monica (aka MOB)

If I could give Olympia 10 stars I would. I highly highly recommend them. Their food is beyond amazing. They did everything I wanted - the exact dinner I wanted, 2 happy hours (Great bar staff thanks to Lundy's), amazing appetizers,delicious desserts (special requested) and a beautiful, scrumptious cake. They even handled all my decorating needs even centerpieces and flowers. I am so impressed by every aspect of Olympia. They were very patient with me and my decision making process, met with me several times and even set up sample tables for me to look at with multitude of linen samples I requested. Olympia is worth every penny. I had absolutely no worries and everything was perfect. I am still hearing compliments from my family and friends on how great the food was. Best wedding food ever!

I cannot say enough great things about Olympia!!! (Our wedding actually took place on 10/11/2014, but I cannot change that for some reason)They surpassed our expectations and truly made our wedding amazing! We used Olympia for our catering and our cake...they are the complete package! When we had our tasting with Nancy, Amy and Marlene, we knew we had to hire them! the food was amazing and delicious at our trial and was the exact same on our wedding day. They prepare the food on location - even the filet mignons were seared and cooked on the spot! I cannot count how many time we heard "best wedding food ever" and the cake was equally as delicious and beautiful!! Now, on to the service...we felt like royalty! Marlene was absolutely on point the entire night and so was the rest of her team. We never had an empty drink or water glass, even while we were taking photos. She even had drinks and appetizers waiting for us, after we finished with the picture taking. Our guests were also commenting all night on how amazing the service was. I could go on and on singing the praises of Olympia Catering, but the bottom line is that you will be so incredibly happy, if you hire this team of catering professionals!!!! Unbelievable experience!

Olympia was absolutely amazing from the consultation to the clean up. They were very professional and really helped us to make a menu that represented our wedding perfectly. Tons of guests came up to me during the reception to tell me that it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. It's been 3 months since, and people are still talking about it. I was thrilled with my experience and would highly recommend them to anyone.

Olympia provided both the food and the cake at our wedding reception. Good food was important to me since wedding food often tastes like, well, wedding food. I wanted food that was actually delicious and Olympia absolutely delivered. We had a mashed potato martini station and our guests raved about it! It was a really fun addition to the rest of the delicious options we had :)

On to the wedding cake. My fiance and I aren't super big cake fans. I love dessert but cake generally doesn't do it for me. In addition to being beautiful, our cake from Olympia was SO good! We had lots of guests tell us it was some of the best wedding cake they'd ever had- it's certainly the best my husband and I have had!

In addition to being great the day of, Olympia was wonderful with the coordination beforehand. When I went in for my tasting, everything was ready and waiting. Sherri asked lots of great questions about the wedding to get an idea for tablescape for the food tables. It was a really fun experience altogether :)

Olympia Catering and Nancy Cotto are a perfect 10! We had our daughter’s wedding at the Museum of Fine Arts and had to use Olympia Catering for the cocktail hour and dinner. What an amazing experience we had. From the initial meal planning with Nancy to the day of the event, every detail was just as we had wanted. Olympia Catering provides a huge menu of selections. The food tasting event was exceptional with the presentation of the selections looking and tasting amazing… complete with a bottle of wine. I continue to receive compliments on the food from family and friends. We had initially planned to have food stations for the guests; however, at the last minute we needed to modify the plan and had a buffet instead. Nancy was wonderful in accommodating our last minute changes and knew exactly how to help us in our hour of need. The cake was also created by Olympia Catering. It was beautiful and again delicious. The staff was professional and friendly to the guests and my family. At the end of the reception, the staff efficiently assisted us in loading our cars with all our items. I thank Olympia Catering and Nancy Cotto for helping to make our daughter’s wedding so special.

Olympia Catering was FANTASTIC!

We did several caterer tastings, and found Olympia's food to be the best and not overpriced (making the decision easy)! We were nervous when we were switched to a new coordinator, but everything turned out awesome. Alison and Marlene took great care of us at our tastings, meetings, and wedding!

Alison was very positive, energetic, and flexible during the entire planning process. She hadn't done a wedding, yet, at the Lange Farm, but did a perfect job on the day-of. The buffet, pasta, and dessert displays were lovely. Marlene was an amazingly attentive banquet manager - she made sure to find out where we'd be during the cocktail hour in order to bring us food and beverages, made sure we sat and ate our dinner, and saved us a bottle of wine and one of each dessert item as well as buffet leftovers (for after the wedding)!

Many of our guests told us that they also LOVED our caterer; complimenting both their professionalism and the food.

We did go over our budget, a bit, on catering, but thought that Olympia was worth it! We honestly cannot thank them enough for providing such excellent service and food, and being our favorite vendor!

Nancy from Kapok recommended Olympia catering. We started with Taryn, then Allison took over. From the very beginning we were treated like royalty. We were very impressed with the food tasting and cake tasting. We picked out the linens, chair sashes, dishes, centerpieces (we went with 3 tall crackled glass candles). We went with stations instead of sit down dinner. On the day we watched the precision and efficiency of the staff magically transforming the ball room into a beautiful wedding reception hall. Two weeks later we are still getting phone calls from guests saying how delicious the food was (the signature chicken is the BEST) and how elegant! It was the dream wedding that every girl hopes for. Thank you to Allison and her staff for making my daughter, the bride, feel like a real princess, and making all of us feel just as special!

My husband and I are live in NYC but got married in St. Petersburg, FL in February, Our reception was at The Museum of Fine Arts, which exclusively uses Olympia Catering. Since we were planning a wedding from afar, this was super convenient since we didn't have to make yet another decision. Even better, Olympia Catering has fantastic food and is very easy to work with.

Nancy Cotto, the Olympia representative at MFA, is seriously the best. She's been doing this for years and is truly a professional. Since we don't live in Florida, we had a very limited timeframe to do our tasting. She squeezed us in on a crazy Saturday afternoon as they were setting up for another wedding. We went with a family style dinner, which included a TON of food for the price. We had 4 passed appetizers during cocktail hour, 2 salads, 2 entrees, 3 sides, an ice cream bar and a wedding cake. Not only was it a good amount of food but it was GOOD food. It tasted just like it did when we tasted it in November. We went with the signature chicken and the grouper for the entrees and they were both delicious. I was hesitant to serve chicken to a bunch of foodies from NYC but it got rave reviews and everyone loved it. Our wedding cake turned out beautifully and the ice cream bar was an awesome dessert addition. My only complaint is that the menu is huge and it took us forever to decide what we wanted to serve!

The set up was amazing performed to exactly how we wanted. A detailed picture and arrangements were placed on each table to perfection. The meal sadly wasn't up to par. The staff began cleaning up a half hour early. Coffee and cake were it put out in a timely manner. The most disturbing was Sherri's attire at our finalizing details. She so unkept that I was worried about our event. As a sales manager, one would expect a woman dressed professionally. Very upsetting. At the event she wore all black and was neater, thankfully. I was concerns about the extra 20% to be given which would be $1000.00. With just average service and below average food I could not justify such a reward. We felt the 10% charge was sufficient. Two other issues were a distraction were the day before cake filling change and the lack of bringing one high hair that we paid &20 each for the rental. Both of these issues could have been resolved much sooner than the day before. Sherri was pleasant and helpful but didn't always return messages. I would rate an average to below average score. Also the wait staff could clearly be seen eating the reception food, tacky to say the least.

I loved Olympia Catering!!!! They did such a spectacular job with our wedding!!! They bring their own ovens to the event, so if your venue just has a warming kitchen it's no big deal, they can still cook on site. I had several guests say it was the best wedding food they've ever had! We did a formal sit down dinner where our guests were served their choice of cheese stuffed chicken or pomegranate merlot petit filet, and they pulled it off without a hitch! They offer kids plates at a lower price, which is great for those little guests and your budget! Their cake was also as beautiful as it was delicious and included in the price per plate, which made it super easy for us!!!

We rented our ceremony chairs from them as well as linens, chiavari chairs, and plate chargers for the reception and they were all beautiful! Our venue was booked the day before our wedding so I couldn't decorate myself like I'd expected!!! Olympia saved the day and set up/decorated the entire venue for us!!! I gave them specific instructions on where I wanted everything to go, and they did a spectacular job!!!

I held my reception at the Museum of Fine Arts, and so Olympia was our caterer by default. I was very skeptical that a catering company under an exclusive contract would provide such exceptional service. The staff was excellent, and went above and beyond to be sure that my husband, my family and I were all comfortable and well fed. The guests would not stop raving about our food, and couldn't believe that it was 'wedding food.' Add to this Nancy Cotto's accommodating and professional service as sales manager, and you have a truly flawless experience. My cake was beautiful, and they allowed us to completely customize our menu. We were very impressed and pleased with the entire experience.

I can’t say enough about Olympia Catering.. Our experience was wonderful. Our tasting was fun and deciding to use their services was an easy choice. The food was exceptional.. and I received so many compliments that everything tasted fresh and delicious. Aside from that the service that they provided surpassed my wildest expectations. They ensured that everything was set up the way I wanted and they even helped us pack our stuff at the end of the night. They took such care in handling our things and did it all with a happiness and friendliness that made us feel like we were dealing with friends instead of a vendor. Also the staff was so very sweet to bring out some of the cocktail reception food for my husband and I while we were taking our pictures… and it was VERY appreciated as we were starving.. so Kuddos to Olympia’s staff for that. Further, they ensured that all of our guests were happy and would come around to our table and bring us drinks and anything else we needed.. they totally “catered” to us. And just to top of their impeccable service.. they also packed up all of our extra food and cake to go.. AND made two special to-go boxes of meals for my husband and me to take with us, as we were so busy we didn’t have a chance to eat our meal properly. They were one step ahead of us at all times and thought of everything that could make our wedding the most perfect day of our lives! Thank you so much!

I am serious about my sweets. So there was no joking around on our hunt for a cake! Olympia Catering was our 3rd tasting, and the experience was the best. Debbie was responsive, knowledgable and kind; the paperwork and payment process was super easy. We chose cream cake, lemon filling and buttercream frosting - delicious.

On the day of, when my husband and I arrived to the reception after photos, my cake was beautiful and just the way we had imagined it. However, the next day, I was filled in on a little behind-the-scenes mishap: 15 minutes into cocktail hour, Olympia came back because they had realized they delivered the wrong cake a couple hours ago (they also did not seem apologetic, I was told). So they rolled the wrong one away - guests at the reception already, mind you, who witnessed everything - and rolled my correct cake back in. I had paid my florist an additional $80 to arrange foliage and flowers along the cake tiers, which she wonderfully did -- on the wrong cake. By party time, my florist had already left of course. So the foliage and flowers were moved - apparently hastily - by the Olympia staff (my coordinator had them do it because she did not want to be held accountable for dismantling the florist's work nor potentially disappointing me. I don't blame her!). When I look back on the photos, I can tell the difference. But all in all, we really had no clue when we stepped into the party; the cake was ultimately beautiful and delicious.

I really don't know where to start. Sherri and her team were beyond amazing. From our first meeting, Sherri was on the ball and totally understood what I was looking for. I loved the packages that they had and how you could customize them to fit your needs. The food at our reception was a huge hit! We did stations and everyone loved them!! The cocktail hour food was great as well. The hot items were hot and the cold items, cold. Our wedding cake was not only delicious, it was 100% to the T exactly what the picture that I gave her. Her team set up the decor, which was a lot, exactly how I asked. She was responsive to emails and truly a pleasure to work with. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Olympia to anyone having a wedding, party, or catered event. Honestly, so happy I went with them. They made my day a reality!! Thank you so, so much!!

Olympia was forced on us by our venue (the St. Petersburg MFA) and we couldn't have been happier. The food was amazing, their menu extensive, and most importantly, the price was incredibly generous. One of the best values we saw through our entire wedding process. From the tasting, to selecting linens, to her interfacing with our wedding planner, Nancy Cotto, the St. Petersburg contact, was great. And if that was the whole of our experience with Olympia, my rating would be solid 5 stars.

However, the Olympia catering in Tampa (our contact was Debbie Aaron) that handled the cake portion of the catering was not at all professional or responsive. The cake tasted fine and looked good in the end, but it was like pulling teeth to get her to do what we wanted (or respond to phone calls and emails). We considered changing vendors several times through the months that we worked with her, but each time it seemed like more effort than just waiting to hear back from her. At the end we had to scramble to get the cake design approved and ready for the reception due to her unprofessionalism, and it caused more stress than any other single part of the wedding.

Looking back I'd like to focus on how the dinner was better than any wedding food I've ever had, the staff was excellent, and the overall experience such that I would use Olympia again. But in the effort of giving good feedback, they need to rein in Debbie Aaron.

1. We were told that food and drinks would be provided to the bride and groom during cocktail hour while they were doing photos. This did NOT happen and our family had to run back and forth trying to get water and food to them. They did not even get a platter to enjoy. They were given one chicken on a stick, and one shrimp cup (by family). That is all they enjoyed from the cocktail hour. Due to the lack of water,and the heat (the bride almost passed out)we had to spend almost 15 minutes hydrating and icing her down.

2. We asked for a Gluten Free meal from day one for the brides Aunt - this is on the contract, this was confirmed and then forgotten. She served the wrong salad (which did cause stomach upset).. then told to go fix her self a plate from the buffet and skip certain items. This is totally unacceptable and a health risk! There could have been medical issues due to this lack of follow through. It was also embarrassing as we had promised this to her!

3. The cocktail hour seemed to have very little amounts of some food items: Chicken on the stick, sliders, and shrimp.

4. The contract stated that the wedding cake would be cut and served this did not happen. After they cut the cake family and friends were having to cut their own cake- to which other than the bite they groom and bride did at the cutting they never had a slice. This was a shock to me and I don't understand why this major part of a reception was over looked.

5. Some of the Silver chargers that were on the tables had cracks down them- I would think that your standards would not allow damaged items like this.

6. Removing plates while people were still eating. Several guest complained that when they used the restroom or got up to speak to the bride and groom they would come back to their plates missing. (I personally had to speak to the Dj in middle of eating when returned my entire dinner was gone) went to get more and the buffet was being taken down this was about 8:30pm. Dinner didn't even st

Olympia Catering & Events responded with the following comments:

Our owner has contacted this client to apologize and resolve these issues. Sadly, she has declined to meet with us. We greatly value any genuine feedback from our clients as this helps us become a better company.

Our staff is truly hurt and saddened by her repeated attempts to post these unfair accusations on many social media sites. The sales staff, banquet lead, and servers in this event went above and beyond to exceed the expectations of these clients. To name a few: digging through the trash to find something for them, wrapping up ice packs and aiding the bride when she was over-heated, setting up trays of hors d’oeuvres in their dressing rooms, and having character dress for her “Beauty and the Beast” themed wedding.

At the end of the night the father of the bride came up to our staff to give them big hugs and said thank you for all of the great service and food. Additionally, Mrs. Smith wrote this to us word-for-word: “First the food was truly amazing and held up the the expectations! The servers were friendly and attentive to the details at set up. Sherri did honor what all of us remembered as her promise with the chocolate fountain and it was amazing!”

Again, we are truly saddened that our client had such a bad experience and has decided not to meet with us. We are, however, happy that they had amazing food and our servers were friendly and attentive.

For any future clients who may be reading this, we are more than happy to discuss any concerns regarding these claims.

Our cake from Olympia was both visually stunning and DELICIOUS! We wanted a bit of an unusual shape for our cake, and Olympia was right there with us to help us make it possible. Additionally, we didn't want to spring for the upgraded flavors due to our budget. At first I was afraid the cake wouldn't be as good, but even their basic flavors are mouthwatering! Many of our guests commented on the taste, and we enjoyed our cake leftovers for several days after the wedding.

Olympia was easy to work with and delivered a delicious and beautiful product! We would definitely choose them again!

All I can say is the FOOD WAS AMAZING!!!! I do not think I have every had better food at any other wedding I've been to. Using the station set up I think is the only way to go. The food is hot and guest take only what they want which mean less is wasted. They also made our cake and again it had to have been THE BEST cake I've ever had. Not only was the food good the table set up for the guests and food stations were also VERY beautiful. They looked exactly how I pictured them when I was day dreaming of this day and explaining it to Sherri who I sat down with. They handled everything I did not have to lift a finger they knew what they needed to do and did not need to bother me. Olympia is hands down THE BEST caterer in Tampa!

Olympia was recommended to me by my planner for their great food. In particular, Sherri, was recommended because she has a good sense of style and great energy. I found this to be absolutely true. Sherri was incredibly kind, understanding of what I was looking for, and fun to be around for meetings and the day of. Her staff were enthusiastic, their appearance was clean and professional, and delivered excellent service.

It was difficult doing the contract process with Olympia. Sherri was out of the office and I was unaware. As I became anxious about settling the contract, a co-worker picked up in the middle which further confused what work we had done. I was happy when she came back and we wrapped everything up nicely. While the lack of responsiveness was irritating, the quality of the final product and value far out weighs the process. It's just something to be well aware of as any bride would get nervous in the time leading up to the big day. But trust in Sherri, you will be okay!

The day of, she made sure my husband and I were well taken care of, with drinks and food. That is so important on such a busy day! The food was good. The cake was amazing. I am still hearing complements months later.

Don't know how it's possible..but our food looked & tasted even better than at our tasting! I can see why the St. Pete Museum of Fine Arts only works with Olympia. They were also flexible in adjusting the food packages so that we could give guests the options of fish, chicken, steak..and even vegetarian. Even with last minute changes, Nancy was very responsive in her emails. They also did our cake which was included in the package..no need to spend more for a cake from elsewhere! Delicious red velvet cake with the exact design I had drawn up. Ate the top layer at brunch the next day :)
Thank you!

We had many guests traveling from New York and Boston for our wedding and our one concern was the food. Will there be enough? and Will it meet up to people's expectations? Let me start off by saying that our guests are still talking about the food. Nancy was amazing, I seriously can't rave about her enough. She made sure to cover every detail with me and her staff took such good care of us on the day of the wedding. The food was plentiful, rich and satisfying. The cake was sinful and delightful.

Olympia is the in-house caterer for the St. Petersburg Museum of Fine Arts. We thought the food was absolutely delicious! We chose the petite filet mignon, Mahi Mahi and stuffed chicken as well as a vegetarian dish for our dinner options (chicken was my favorite)! The cake was just how we wanted it, as well as delicious! We ordered a white cake with raspberry filling and a lemon buttercream frosting. It was very simple, four tiers with orchids around the top, cascading down the side.

We did stations at our reception and the food was delicious!! We had TONS of compliments on our food. Sadly, we didn't get to eat much the night of our wedding (busy dancing!), but luckily we have been to several weddings that also used Olympia and the food is wonderful!! :) I can't say enough about how great they are. Easy to work with and great tasting food!

We also had Olympia make our wedding cake! Debbie was great to work with and offered a fabulous suggestion for our cake flavor--LOVE! It tasted like strawberry shortcake! YUM! We gave her a picture of how we wanted the cake to look and the cake was perfect!

We are very pleased with Olympia and absolutely, without a doubt, recommend them to anyone!

What a great catering company! But they do more than just excellent food! They were a one stop shop for me when I booked my wedding at MFA St Pete. Food, Cake, Lines, Plates and Chargers! As a special events manager of the 6th largest casino in the world, I am tough cookie when it comes to executing an event vision. So when it came to my wedding the stakes were high!
After meeting Nancy just once I knew I would enjoy working with her through the wedding planning process. She was always available and prompt on responding. She has everything on my wedding day just as I described.
My guests cannot stop raving about the food! They said it was the best food they had at a wedding and I agree! You can’t go wrong with Olympia (and Nancy). If I could lonely get their famous stuffed chicken recipe :)

We received many many comments about how great the food was at the wedding. We had a few people say it was the best food they ever had. We even got to take two extra meals for us for the next day and we couldn't wait to heat them up it was sooo good. We had the signature chicken and the steak served at the wedding and they were both fantastic. Darren was very responsive and took great care of us, making sure we had all the answers to our questions. The cake was beautiful and delicious and we couldn't have been happier with it.

Our wedding was at the Museum of Fine Arts, where Olympia Catering has an exclusive contract. The food was incredible! They had so many options, and everyone raved about the food and cake! We even had a sushi station with a guy rolling sushi throughout the reception! They were so easy to work with, even letting my mom come there multiple times to look through the books with linens as we were constantly changing our minds. I wouldn't have changed a thing!

We chose Olympia mainly because of how highly recommended they were from our venue, Kapok Special Events, in Clearwater, FL. We were not disappointed!
Taryn, our catering coordinator, was the most pleasant and patient vendor we had!! I came to her with a complete lack of visual for the entire reception. She helped so much in creating a visual, and then made the real thing so much more spectacular than anything I imagined!!
The servers were unbelievably attentive and so friendly!!
And let's not forget the most important part, the FOOD!! It was incredible!! It was the most complimented part of our wedding! Our guests still mention it...
Thank you Olympia, and thank you so much, Taryn!!

I love Olympia Catering! Taryn made the process so easy and fun! She helped me with things I didn't even know that caterers do! My cake was awesome and we got so many compliments on the food. The staff was so nice and Taryn was there to help me at the reception! I can't recommend them enough. Olympia is the best!

We used Olympia Catering in conjunction with the Museum of Fine Arts as our wedding caterer. We were nervous about not being able to choose our caterer, but after looking at several other venues, we found that Olympia was one of the “recommended caterers” of every site we looked at. It was so nice to be able to get tables, chairs, linens, all dishware and glassware, all food, cake, and bar included in one package – saved tons of time not having to find separate vendors for all of these things. Nancy was an absolute delight to work with, and helped us get everything set up perfectly as we did not have a wedding planner. I left a box of table and chair decorations, guest table items, card box, etc. on Friday night, and did not have a chance to explain to her where everything needed to go. I was very nervous things wouldn’t be where I wanted them, but when I saw the reception hall for the first time I was blown away. Without any instruction, just my vision we discussed of how the room would look, she set up everything better than I could have imagined. We decided to skimp on the food so we could have a full bar, and just picked their basic chicken dish. People went NUTS over it! We had so many compliments on the food, and it was just Olympia’s basics. I would highly recommend them to anyone!

My wedding was not the first one my mom has had to plan. I am the fifth of five daughters and the last to get married so you could say my mom was becoming a pro at planning weddings in the Tampa Bay area. This was the first time we used Olympia. They were recommended by our site, The Coliseum in downtown St. Petersburg. We had one meeting with Taryn for a taste testing and were sold, we paid the down payment on the spot and from there they were nothing but helpful, kind, professional and a hit! My husband and I have been hearing from friends and family that the food was amazing; some were going back for thirds and that this food was the best they've ever had at a wedding (including their own!). Taryn was beyond helpful throughout the whole process, start to finish. She is organized, prompt, very kind and catered to all of my needs - like completely changing appetizers last minute. I would recommend them to anyone in the area and if we were to ever plan a party again, they would be the first to call!

I am an out of town bride so I have to admit...I got a lot of catering recommendations for the FL area and I was TRULY disappointed with A LOT of them!! My husband and I could only fly to Florida at certain times and the only person who was super accommodating with our schedule was Sherri at Olympia.
From the second we stepped into Olympia - Sherri made us feel so comfortable and she was truly excited for our event! She was super organized, she had pictures and suggestions for our venue...she let me change my menu tons of times (and she did it with a smile - bless her heart!)
In the end - the delivery - EXCELLENT AND PERFECT!!!! Coming from NY - Northeast US weddings can be quite over the top so I wanted to make sure my guests knew that a Florida wedding would not disappoint. We ended up hiring Sherri for our Rehearsal & Wedding Reception and she and her team did an AMAZING job for both! Everyone RAVED about the food - the presentation was beautiful - the service outstanding - she handled everything perfectly where as I never had to worry about a thing. Sherri & Olympia - THANK YOU THANK YOU sooo much for making everything perfect - you guys were all outstanding!

Olympia was amazing! I had so many positive comments about how great the food was. People were so impressed with their Signature Chicken dish, no one ever comments on how good chicken is at a wedding buffet, but people fell in love with theirs. The banquet Captain made sure I had a drink, save appetizers for my wedding party when we arrived, served my husband and I our dinner, and cleaned up when it was done. I was very happy with the service and the quality of food. Sherri, who was my contact, was amazing. She helped me with ideas on linens, food, and the cake. The cake was also delicious. I gave them a picture of what I liked and it turned out exactly the way I wanted it! I would use Olympia again in a heart beat!

The food is beyond amazing. It is the best wedding food I've ever had. The package are amazing as everything is included from linens to our cake. Definetly the best value all around that I could find. But when it came to responding to emails they sometimes failed at the area. There would be times where I would have to email 3 or 4 times to get a response in a 2 week period, mind you this is a month before my wedding and I had not received my final quote. Also, it rained on my wedding day. We had discussed an alternate plan if it were to rain an they did not follow through. But all in all the food was amazing and so was the cake.

Olympia did a phenominal job with the catering for our wedding! We met with Sherry several times and she did not hesitate a bit (each time we came). She was very imformative and had so many great ideas when we got "stuck" so to speak. We did a food tasting at there location in Tampa and had a great time. There food was excellent and fresh! The cake turned out beautifully and was to die for - so moist! Sherry was awesome to work with and took time and pride in what she was doing for us to make our wedding day a day we will never forget. You can tell she loves what she does! I would definatley recommend Olympia Catering for any wedding or other event you need catering for!

Olympia Catering is your best choice for a wedding caterer! The food for my March 2nd wedding was delicious and for a reasonable price. After the tasting I went to at Olympia, it was actually hard to choose which food I wanted at my wedding because it was all AMAZING!

Trust me, with Olympia, you'll get MORE than what you paid for. Taryn managed my wedding & kept in touch with me every step of the way. She went above & beyond to make sure everything was exactly what i wanted & took charge in a way that assured me that I could relax on my big day!

The service from Olympia made my buffet-style dinner feel like a gourmet restaurant was catering to our every need! The staff were so kind & constantly checked on us as a couple & our guests...we felt cared for in every way!

Thank you Olympia for making my day so special! XOXO, Victoria

Olympia Catering & Events provided catering for my 1.14.12 wedding at the Museum of Fine Arts downtown St. Petersburg. My fiance and I met with Darren numerous times prior to the big day to discuss logistics. Not only did Olympia provide catering services, they also provided tables, chairs, table settings, servers, etc. I did want chiavari chairs, and Olympia provided those as well.

We did a tasting a few months before the wedding, and everything we tried was delicious. We did stations rather than a typical buffet, or seated service. The stations allowed for more variety and gave people a chance to get up and mingle. We had a pasta station, NY strip station, potato station, salad station and coffee station. The night of my wedding I actually ate all my dinner....it was DELICIOUS.

I continue to receive compliments on how wonderful the food was. Olympia did an amazing job with everything. Their servers were by my side throughout the night refreshing my champagne glass too :-)

I suggest you check out Olympia!

Olympia definitely makes amazing cakes! Our's tasted great & looked amazing! They were great to work with over the months & always quick to answer whatever questions I had. I only has a small issue - we had a 3-tiered, square cake, & the tiers were supposed to be staggered (kind of like the bottom was straight, then the next was placed like a diamond & then the top was straight again). Well, when the cake arrived - all the tiers were straight...not a really big deal, it still looked amazing & I'm the only one that knew it was not right. We got so many compliments on the cake - I would still highly recommend Olympia to anyone! :)

Sherri and Olympia Catering did an incredible job with our wedding!! Sherri was amazing--on top of every detail, able to answer any question we asked of her, and totally organized. She was able to do anything we asked of her, something other caterers were not. My now husband is Cuban, and we really wanted to have Cuban food for our wedding. Olympia was able to do this for us, no questions asked. In fact, even all of his Cuban relatives told us the food was delicious--and they are tough critics when it comes to their food! We also got our cake from them and it was both beautiful and delicious. I even added a groom's cake at the last minute, and they did a wonderful job with it. There was barely any cake left over when the night was done!

They also did all of our centerpieces and table linens, and everything turned out exactly like I had pictured. It was incredibly beautiful. In addition, they had an hour to turn the room over from ceremony to reception and they were so efficient, they were done before the hour was even up.

Just the fact that they were able to do so much for us (food, centerpieces, cakes, table linens), which allowed us to limit the number of vendors we had to hire, was a huge bonus. My husband and I did all the planning while we were in medical school, so we loved anything that made our life easier. Sherri and Olympia certainly did that for us.

I highly recommend Olympia to anyone looking for a caterer in the St. Petersburg/Tampa area. They did a great job for us and I'm sure will do the same for you! The only negtative was that sometimes Sherri took a little while to get back to me. However, I always was able to eventually get a hold of her, so this really did not detract from my experience at all. I would use them again, no question.

We had our reception at the Museum of Fine Arts, so Olympia Catering was chosen for us and I'm very glad that they were. We worked with Darren for our wedding and they were extremely accomodating to a detail-oriented bride and mother-in-law.
The food was excellent. I highly reccommend their Signature Chicken, as all of our guests that got the chicken said how good it was and some have even been experimenting with duplicating the recipe. The appetizers were a big hit with our crowd... we had 3 passed and an antipasto station. And the cake was amazing! All of our guests said that they had plenty of variety and went home full.
But I think even better than the quality of the meal (which was incredible) was the quality of the service. Darren and his team have obviously done this many times and you should feel comfortable that they know exactly what he's doing to make your event run smoothly. He has a very professional and sophisticated sense of weddings... definitely ask him for his opinion (which he will only share if you ask) because he knows what makes a great wedding reception.
Also, I have to say that the managers at the Museum of Fine Arts Cafe are very top-notch as well. THey were also extremely accomodating to us and I would reccommend them to anyone.
The ONLY thing that I would tell anyone ahead of booking Olympia is that they are obviously very talented and very busy. You won't get a reply immediately from them but that doesn't mean that they've forgotten about your event. Any time that I did have to wait on a response, I always received favorable news back from them, so it made the waiting worth it.
Thanks again especially to Darren and the entire Olympia Staff.

Olympia did all my food, linens and some of the decoration. They were very good, the food was delicious and the place looked awesome with all the linens. The cake was impressive, not only the look, but it was very tasty.
The servers were very attentative, and very professional.
The only issue was trying to get fast responses. I would recommend that if you go with Olympia to be prepared for slow responses to e-mail and messages.
Other than that I was very pleased with them.

We also hired our bartender and setup through you, who did an awesome job! Your entire staff was professional and so pleasant ... always cheerful and smiling and ready to take care of our needs. The master baker did an awesome job on both the wedding cake, which was absolutely beautiful, as well as, the groom's cake! Both were just divine to the taste buds! Debbie did a fantastic job working on the design with us! The Hors D'oeuvres and main course was simply delicious as well! We received so many compliments on all the food. Thank you so much and I hope all who read this will contact you for their catering needs, and we assure them they won't be disappointed!

The food and cake were great! I got lots of compliments on how good the food was. And the cake was beautiful! One of my favorite things about the whole wedding. I just gave Darren a picture of what I wanted and he executed it beautifully. The only downside is that i didn't get to eat any of it. After we cut the cake, the caterers were no where to be found. so it took a while to get the cake out to everyone.
Darren did a great job decorating the ceremony site, setting up our favors and other random jobs that I asked of him. The only downside was his lack of responsiveness.

The food was wonderful!!! All our guests loved the food and kept saying it was the best wedding food they had ever tasted. They matched exactly what we wanted and even made an extra appetizer on the spot for us when we ran out of one of them.

However they were not responsive at all. It was so hard to get a hold of them for anything, even to pay them. It was very frustrating on that front.

Food was GREAT, but beware that you will be chasing after them.

They also did my cake...it was flawless!!! Getting a hold of the cake department wasn't a problem at all...Debbie was great!

When I first met with Sherri the only thing I had was a picture of the vision I was looking for and immediately she knew what I wanted...I was planning the wedding for about a year and like most brides you have doubts about colors and ideas but I could always call Sherri and she assured me that everything was going to be great and not to worry :) Our wedding day was absolutely beautiful, I wouldnt have changed a single thing! To this day I have family and friends asking about the food and how delicious it was.....and the decor was perfect, my vision had come to life and as a bride I couldnt have asked for anything more...I would highly reccomend Olympia to anyone planning there wedding, I know that our family would love to have Olympia cater any events or parties that we have in the future!

We went to Olympia for our wedding and groom's cake and we loved them! We had a Halloween wedding and wanted a wedding cake that was a little bit different but still elegant. Our wedding cake was exactly what we wanted and it tasted amazing. The price was perfect as well. We did have one small hitch because the groom's cake wasn't delivered on our wedding night but one quick email the next day and I had his cake and my money back. Debbie was very attentive and very quick to return any emails or calls that I sent her way. I will definitely hire them for any future cake needs.

There were a few times where my e-mails slipped through, but upon talking to Sherri she was sure to update all the appropriate information and apologized a million times over. When it came to the day of Sherri was sure to come into my bridal suite to be sure everything was going smoothly as well as was sure to be in communication with her staff to be sure my bridal party got appetizers and my Husband and I sat down to eat our dinner. It was great and I highly recommend Olympia.

I used Olympia Catering for my wedding because my friend had used them for a lot of family events and really liked their services. I intially was very excited with Olympia after our first consultation, (even though we had to leave and come back an hour later because Sherri, who we had an appointment with wasn't there) because they said they could take care of everything. Sherri offered to arrange the room because she had done weddings at our venue, but after multiple e-mails (months apart) they went unanswered or she said she would get it to me soon. But as the time got closer to my wedding I realized that it would be up to me to reassure myself that things would get done. They cancelled another appointment a couple of hours before we were scheduled to come in and it was only 3 weeks before our wedding day ( we were suppose to do a final count, pick food, and pay for services). They were able to reschedule us soon though. The ladies in the office were very rude and talking about other brides that were worried about their payments being received....The day of my wedding I had rearranged the room differently because things were to squished once everything was set up and they changed the tables all around after I was done, so we had random signs on the walls with no tables in front of them, it looked awful!! The linens were too big and they looked awful like a bed sheet hanging over a table. And the final nail in the coffin was that I said what ever you do, I don't want a pink cake and they frosted our cake with pink frosting!!!!! I had a picture and everything!! I had to hold back tears when it came out!! The point is, they promised the world and told us they would take care of everything, but delivered very poorly. I guess if I would have been one of those crazy brides that called them every day they would have given us the time of day and realized how important our wedding day was to us. The pros were that the food was good, even though it was cold, and the staff that worked the wedding were amazing and did a wonderful job, they were the true professionals! I think Olympia needs to just stick with the food and not try to do any other detail for a wedding.

Choosing Olympia as the caterer for our wedding was the best decision my husband and I made during the planning process. We originally discovered Olympia by tasting their food at another wedding we attended. I could devote an entire paragraph to how wonderful everything they make tastes (not to mention the variety of menu items available), but what we appreciated most went far beyond the food. Olympia told us from the beginning that they could provide as much or as little of the "extras" as we wanted (i.e., we could use a separate vendor for the table linens, cake, center piece, etc. or use them for everything). We chose to simplify our lives by relying on Olympia for almost everything and couldn't have been happier. Not only did it all look beautiful and taste wonderful, but Sherri (our consultant throughout the entire process) took on almost a coordinator role in ensuring that our reception ran as smoothly as possible. She even had a doggie bag of some of the food waiting for us to take to the hotel later that night! We are still getting compliments from guests as to how much they enjoyed that night (a big part of it being the food). On a random side note, they offer a free wedding cake with a catering package! We were hesitant at first to get our cake from a catering company, until we learned that they began as a bakery. The cake turned out to be exactly what we had imagined. We can't thank Olympia (and Sherri) enough and would highly recommend them for anyones catering needs!

Darren with Olympia Catering did such an amazin job on our wedding. He was very professional, returned my emails quickly, and had everything perfect on the day of the wedding. They provided all of our food, cocktail hour and wedding cake. The food was amazing and all the guests at our wedding where talking about how good the food was. I recommened their speciality chicken that is stuffed...it was amazing! :) The prices where very good for how much you got with the package. Our wedding cake was beautiful, it turned out exactly how I wanted it to look. We had about 4 different flavors that were delicious we had a raspberry filling that was my favorite. I would recommend Olympia Catering to everyone!! They were so easy to work with and everything was perfect on the day of the wedding! :)

This company went above and beyond to make our wedding look gorgeous...and it did! We love Olympia and would highly recommend them to everyone!!!

I cannot say enough about Olympia! I didn't have a wedding coordinator but with Sherry from Olympia I didn't need one. She was so wonderful and took care of everything the day of. We even had our own waiter assigned to our sweetheart table during the reception that made sure we were taken care of.
The food is outstanding as well! We did a plated dinner with a combination entree (their signature chicken and steak). Everything was so delicious and you got a ton of food. They also did the cake so it was nice to not have a seperate vendor to deal with for that. They started out as a bakery so their cake is yummy too!
Definitely use Olympia!!!!!

I searched all over for a wedding cake that tasted good and was reasonably priced. I didn't have any extravagant requirements for appearance – I just wanted a simple design in white buttercream. You'd be amazed how difficult that is to find (especially the “reasonably priced” part)!

I was planning my wedding from out of state, and had limited time to search for vendors each time I was in town. I had already settled for a wedding cake from another bakery, because they were the most affordable on my list and made very nice looking cakes, but wasn't completely satisfied with the taste – it just wasn't that good. With time growing short, I decided to start my search over, despite having far bigger things to check off my to-do list before the big day. My mother found Olympia Bakery and put me in touch with Debbie.

Debbie was wonderful to work with! Since I was planning long-distance, we conversed via phone & email, and I sent her photos of cake designs I liked. We talked about options, design, and pricing, and everything looked good. She even accommodated my request to have my parents do a tasting on my behalf to “pre-screen” Olympia. I got great feedback from them and scheduled a tasting myself for the next time I was in town. We tasted several combinations of cake, filling and icing, and they were all amazing! I had trouble making a choice, but couldn't have gone wrong with any of them. I canceled the cake I had ordered from the original vendor, and put down my deposit at Olympia. I'm so glad I decided to make that switch!

The cake that Olympia made for my wedding was absolutely beautiful! It was exactly what I had envisioned. It tasted amazing. And it didn't break my budget. Olympia ended up being one of the best vendors I worked with, and I would absolutely recommend them to friends and family!

We chose Olympia only about two months before our wedding and they did EVERYTHING they could to accommodate us. They really went above and beyond to make our day run smoothly and I couldn't have been more happy with their service and food. Their signature chicken is so awesome... I wish they had a restaurant so that I could eat it more often! I received the most compliments on that part of dinner. I had absolutely no problems with Olympia. The moment we hired them, I felt like 98% of my stress went away! I highly highly highly recommend using them! I know I will again in the future for other major celebrations... and I look forward to it!

I only used Olympia for my cake. It was delicious and beautiful! The coordinator was excellent. She was lovely. The cake tasting was excellent, they actually had a real piece of cake not a small bite size cube. The cake was just as good at the tasting as it was at the wedding. The cost was so reasonable that I almost fell from my chair when she told me the price. It was half of what the other vendors were quoting and the cake was 100 times better.

I love love love love love Olympia!! They were so perfect the day of the wedding, everything went off without a snag. I had been dealing with Sherri from the beginning and she was such a professional and incredibly sweet person throughout the whole process. I had several tastings, took many guests there to sample the food, she accommodated last minute meetings for me as I was from Chicago and even posted comments on my facebook page to calm and alleviate stresses I was having during the planning process. We did a buffet and ladies when I say buffet, I mean my guests got up for seconds and thirds, there was so much food! My guests and I have never attended a wedding where you could keep eating like that. Our entrees were the signature chicken (such a huge hit and chicken usually never is a highlight of reception food) and the mojo pork quesadillas with mango papaya salsa. The guests raved all night about the food, including forcing my husband and I to sit and eat our meal to enjoy it with them. Our to-go box to take back to our room was trying to be won by guests in a bidding war! :) The wedding cake was perfectly made to match the picture and the red velvet was sooo tasty! Food aside, the also were extremely helpful with setting up my centerpieces and just making the whole scene of the reception come together. They nailed my circular ceremony set-up and the gazebo type apparatus I rented through them was so beautifully decorated and installed it took my breath away. If you are looking for a caterer that is a one-stop shop for food, rentals and bar services, this is your vendor! I cannot stress enough that I was not bothered by a single thing the entire wedding, their staff had it all under control! Their wait staff was impeccable and so friendly! My only regret was losing my purse the day before and having to cancel all my credit cards and bank accounts and I could not properly reward them for all their hard work! From this point forward, they will be my vendor of choice for any catering services!

PS � My reception site vendor is such a huge fan of theirs because they completely take care of all clean up and leave nothing behind. They really take this part seriously and that is a huge help, especially if you have a damages or clean-up clause in your contract!

Olympia Catering & Events responded with the following comments:

Hi Nicci,
The groom's cake wasn't forgotten. We actually had it out from the beginning, but the fudge icing started to sag because of the temperature in the room. As a result, we put it back in the fridge until you and Daniel were ready to cut it. That fudge icing is definitely temperamental, but it sure is tasty!!!

They decroated the reception hall for me.....my favorite part. That was completely not there responsability. All I had to do was take all the stuff the day before and they took care of the rest. I am a control FREAK and I had not a worry in the world the day of my wedding or the day after. EVERYTHING was done! They also worked with me on some of the pricing. GREAT COMPANY!!!!

We had a wonderful experience with Olympia Catering. We worked with Daren Diaz. He was so responsive throughout the entire process. Especially since all the planning was done with us living in Boston. I sent Daren a few cake pictures that I loved and he made the most gorgeous cake (just because it was our wedding I think it was the best . :) ). Olympia Catering covered everything from the linens, room set up, cake and food. The day of, the entire staff was professional and delivery of the food was flawless. Did I mention that the meal was absolutely delicious? yes, the food was fresh, served warm and the presentation was impeccable. I highly recommend Olympia Catering. Not only affordable but you get 5 star service and food.

Olympia was AMAZING and people are still talking about the food! I can't tell you how many people came up to me and said that this was the best food they've ever had at a wedding! I would have to agree, it was mouth watering! Sherri was wonderful to work with and she helped to keep everything that night go smoothly. Coming from a big Italian family the food was the most important thing to us. I have to say, my guest left happy & full! If I could, I would give them 10 stars! I would highly recommend them!!!

For high quality service and great pricing, this is the perfect caterer I worked with to have a fabulous wedding. We had to pay for our own wedding, so trying to find a good caterer at the right price was not an easy job. But Olympia fit all our checklists, and we are very happy that we worked with them instead of all our other choices.

Excellent food. Olympia was very willing to work with our tastes. However, our planner was never afraid to give us a dose of reality to ensure that everything was cohesive (which I appreciated). They created a customized menu for us. There was plenty of food, and it was a nice balance between adventurous cuisine and standard wedding fare. Fabulous cake! My only complaint is that they occasionally took a while to return emails.

The food was fantastic, the wait staff was friendly and quick. The cake was beautiful and the price was great. Sherri, the catering manager, leaves much to be desired. Does not return phone calls or e-mails. I had to call back and/or re-send e-mails every time. Caused me much added stress just before the wedding. Venue also said she was unresponsive to them and left many things until the last second. Unfortunately, even though the food and wait staff were fantastic, I would NOT recommend Olympia because of Sherri.

They helped dress the tables with my decorations and favors. They really did a great job in making sure my vision for my wedding turned out exactly how I planned.

Olympia was a great catering company to have for my wedding. The food was outstanding and laid out nicely. Many of the guests complimented how great the food was which as you know doesn't happen at every wedding so that has to tell you something! The staff was very sweet and catered to me and my husband on our special day. They bring you your plates once they serve the food and be sure you have drinks, it was quite a treat-however it of course comes with a nice price tag as well!

Catering by Olympia was AMAZING! They had so many different kinds of food to choose from. Their presentation was very classy. They even had a taste testing party for brides and grooms. It was really cool to be able to meet other couples there. They have a signature chicken dish that we are still getting compliments on now, 4 months after the wedding! Elizabeth Lopez was our consultant. She answered all of my questions and really made me feel at ease. I highly recommend Olympia!

Overall, this was a good catering company. The only thing that made my experience less than joyful was my wedding cake. They told me I wanted too big of a cake, and that they knew what they were talking about. Well, I get to the reception and my cake is only three thin layers, and looks dinky on the cake table, not to mention that several people afterward told me that they never got any cake! We didn't even get the top of the cake it was so small. Then, to top it all of, no pun intended, they charged me an extra $100 for the cake and never explained why!

Olympia is simply the best price and quality around! We used Olympia for our wedding at the Powel Crossley Museum in Sarasota and they made our wedding look so elegant and classy. We chose the Latin Buffet for our wedding and the food was wonderful! Our family is still talking about how good the food was. Our Event Coordinator, Valerie Allmon, was amazing! She was so helpful from begining to the end.

I also want to mention the wedding cake that they had made for us! Wow! We chose an Italian Rum cake with Chocolate Mousse filling and it was soooooooo delicious! I cannot say enough about Olympia and how amazing the company is and for the price, you really cannot pass them up. I definitely recommend them!

Our wedding was this past October at Davis Islands Garden Club. Were narrowed the catering down to Olympia and another. We had a contact at both, went to tasting at each and got pricing from each...Olympia won hands down, really no comparison. First off, Sherri was amazing. I could tell from the first moment that she truly cared about my wedding day and that she would do everything in her power to make it truly the best. She was very professional, but also just a fun person. She answered all of my emails promptly and thoroughly (and there were a lot) and with a great attitude. She worked with us to get our menu just perfect and at a price that worked for us... but was still delicious and unique. She took our romantic nautical/garden theme and ran with it, styling the food tables to coordinate with everything else... even including beautiful fresh flowers, a vintage suitcase and lanterns. She also set up a lot of our personal decor and it turned out beautifully. Because there is no staff at the Garden Club, we really relied heavily on Sherri and her team. Well they hit it out of the park... Beyond the food being amazing and the decorations being perfect, they really just made sure everything went smoothly. Hor d'oeuvres were brought to us during our picture time... which was so thoughtful and then after our first dance plates of food were brought to us first, so we could eat. We really appreciated those touches. We also had the cake done by Olympia, and it was truly a treat. We did the chocolate with chocolate fudge filling..... SO YUMMY! It's the best cake we've ever had. They were also really flexible and let us do the top layer in carrot cake, my fav, which we devoured the following week. :) Sherri and her team also helped to take down and clean up, and again with such great attitudes. Really, I could go on and on, but I'll just say this... you won't be sorry booking Olympia Catering!
