I worked with Nancy for the catering portion of our wedding. She was extremely helpful and provided great suggestions when I was stuck between choices. All of the food was amazing! Their signature chicken was truly top-notch! They were very responsive, and professional. I am working with Debbie for the cake, which is included in the price (cost savings!!). Additionally, they provide the linens and tableware for the event as well as staff. Nancy really knows her stuff and I can tell she has been in the business for a while. She was able to provide suggestions about spacing for my venue (The Dali Museum) that I had not even thought about. Overall, everything was great and I cannot wait to continue to work with them!

We were so busy, we barely ate much, however our guests and family gave great reviews! Olympia did have one employee that was designated to making sure we got plates of food and kept reminding us to eat - she was wonderful! She also delivered drinks to us all night. We were never empty handed! The food we did taste was delicious! They were a little pricey, but the quality of their food was set far from the other caterers we tried. We are very pleased with our choice!

We also had them make our cake and it was DELICIOUS! They didn't quite do what I asked for as far as the design goes (I had complicated design requests), but it was still beautiful and I didn't even notice until I looked at pictures later. The most important thing was that it tasted good and looked gorgeous!

I would choose them again for sure. You won't be disappointed!

We recently had Olympia Catering do our wedding cake and prior to this our engagement party food. We had a great experience at our cake tasting and the cake on our wedding day was amazing! I had several of my guests comment on how much they enjoyed the cake. Our engagement party food was exceptional! They were easy to work with, well priced and delivery was a breeze. I highly recommend them!

Olympia Catering and Donna Aguis were an absolute dream to work with and made my wedding day perfect and stress free. From start to finish, Donna went above and beyond answering questions and getting me get to a price point I was comfortable with, and she was beyond patient guiding me on selecting the perfect menu for our guests. OUR GUESTS RAVED about the food and service. Olympia was extremely accommodating with our gluten free, dairy free and vegetarians too. Donna made the whole process easy, especially when I realized I would need linens at the 11th hour, she kept it stress free. She even helped me select certain parts of my centerpieces when I couldn't decide and helped me find options. By the time my wedding day came I had such confidence in her, I told her to use her judgement on what to do with certain decorations, sign in, and cake tables- and they looked perfect. The decor they provided on the coffee bar and buffet was stunning and was a complete delight/surprise.
My cake was picture perfect and exactly like the photo I provided. The staff was so attentive for my groom and I with drinks and food, neither of us were ever taken away from each other or our guests.
If you are looking for an amazing caterer who will take care of everything, HIGHLY recommend Olympia and Donna. Worth every single penny. I still have people talking about how great they were. The devil is in the details, I am so grateful while working full time and traveling non-stop while planning a wedding, I had someone who I could trust to not miss and guide me through every one of them. Thank you Donna and Olympia!

Working with Donna Aguis was an absolute pleasure! From the moment my husband and I arrived at the first tasting, I knew there was something special about Olympia Catering. The staff was friendly and Donna proved to be very knowledgable of the menu options. I think I bonded so well with Donna because she is very organized and detailed (like myself lol)! Once we tried the delicious food and learned that the wedding cake was included with the catering, we were sold! It was such a relief to have the cake included and to not worry about hiring another vendor. The cake designer, Debbie, was also wonderful to work with! She was prompt in responding to emails and very helpful in designing our beautiful cake. I showed Debbie pictures of cake designs and also requested a special icing flavor that was not offered on the menu. Our flavors were white chocolate icing with white cake and a chocolate raspberry filling. Debbie provided a sample mini cake with our flavors to ensure we liked the flavors before the wedding. Debbie and her team made the most beautiful and delicious wedding cake I have ever seen and tasted! For our food, we selected four passed hors d'oeuvres and the buffet option with two entrees. On the day of our wedding, our guest kept complimenting us on the food throughout the evening! To this day, I'm still receiving compliments about how awesome our food and cake tasted. I really appreciated Donna's efforts in staying within our budget and providing surprise gifts the day of our wedding! If you are looking for high quality food and work with amazing people, go with Olympia Catering. Donna, thanks again for making our day wonderful!!!

Olympia Catering provided exceptional service for our event. The event coordinator, Donna Aguis, was a pleasure to work with and organized a superior catering service. The on-site team was right on-point! They prepared very tasty hors d'oeuvre and set-up beautiful food and floral presentations. You couldn't tell the event was catered after their thorough clean-up.

I am so happy that we went with Olympia for our wedding. I cannot say enough good things about the staff and the food.

We used Olympia for catering because they were on the approved vendor list for our venue, however, we also chose to work with Nancy at Olympia for our wedding coordination because of how wonderful she is. Nancy is AMAZING!!!! From the first contact I knew this was the vendor for me. My initial email to Olympia was at 3pm on a Saturday afternoon. I received a response from Nancy within an hour of sending my email. I was pleasantly surprised to receive such a quick response. Nancy followed up on every detail - even when I brought some fun items for the reception, but didn't know what to do with them, Nancy said, "Give them to me and I'll take care of them." I had so much to worry about that day - it was nice to be able to hand so many things to her and know they would be handled PERFECTLY. She thought of every little detail and made suggestions when we weren't sure what to do.

The food was displayed beautifully and tasted great. The Olympian Chicken is delicious! The catering staff was so great to work with. Tata thought of everything - she had a plate of hors d'overs set aside for us, and she brought us each a plate of food so we didn't have to go through the buffet line. The little things make a BIG difference when you have limited time on your big day. Nancy even made sure that we had a to-go plate sent with us to make sure that we had enough food.

I would definitely recommend Olympia catering for your wedding. I contacted a total of four catering vendors when looking for a caterer. Olympia far exceeds ANY vendor that I contacted - they were the perfect choice for our wedding.

I cannot say enough about our experience with Olympia, especially have Donna Aquis as our coordinator! The food is always amazing, and they make it very simple to plan. My best advise is to limit your number of vendors. We had Olympia take care of food of course, cake, and all linens, chair covers, and sashes. Donna also designed our Sweets table. We had the most amazing vendors and I wouldn't change a thing!

Olympia catering is by far the best for weddings in the Tampa Bay area! We worked with Sherri and she truly is a gem! Her outstanding service and experience really helped my husband and I put our wedding reception together. On the big day, I remember walking into our wedding reception for the first time and just being completely in awe of how amazing everything was! Sherri and the Olympia team really out did all of our expectations and I couldn't be happier with how our wedding turned out!!
