We got married at Holland Marsh Winery and O'Malley's is the preferred caterer for this venue, which is why we decided to use their services. I must start by saying that the food owner and head chef Emidio produces is absolutely delicious and extremely reasonably priced given its quality. The food and service we received on our wedding day was fantastic, so Emidio really did deliver, but the planning process was extremely frustrating. Emidio simply did not respond to emails, or acknowledge any requests for changes to the menu; the only way to get a hold of him was to pick up the phone, which is not always convenient when you're in the thick of wedding planning. He seemed frazzled and disorganized and had to ask us how much our initial deposit was because he couldn't find the records when the time came to put together our final invoice. Because Emidio's business is so successful, he would really benefit from employing a receptionist or secretary to manage the influx of customer correspondence, because it is clearly too overwhelming for him. Even though the planning process was frustrating, Emidio was always positive and friendly, and willingly made changes and accommodations for us. My now husband and I are vegan, as were many of our guests, and he did not even bat an eye at this – he made delicious custom meals to suit our dietary needs. He is very averse to food waste and cautioned us against ordering too much or adding on certain things, even though it would have meant more money for him. The catering staff arrived on time on the morning of the wedding to set the dining room, and they were efficient and attentive during cocktail hour and dinner service, ensuring all guests' needs were taken care of. I genuinely like Emidio and would definitely recommend his services to others because the food he puts out and the service his staff provides are that good! Just manage your expectations when it comes to receiving timely responses...

PROS: The food from O'Malleys was fantastic. Everything was as good as the tasting. We had buffet and had more than enough food for 2nds. Emidio had GREAT suggestions during the planning process, even when it did not affect his service or preparation. He actually saved us money by suggesting we DIY water bottles instead of paying him for a ceremony drink service (outdoor wedding). Emidio was very flexible, we had a customised menu (BBQ food: pulled pork, BBQ steak and veggies, corn on the cob, mac and cheese, salads, etc.), this did cost more but we were able to negotiate a served dessert & coffee service instead of buffet. Emidio's staff had no problem setting up our DIY table runners as well as the candles and table numbers for our tables. Both of our families have used O'Malleys for other events and have never been disappointed.

CONS: Emidio was difficult to get a hold of by email (3-6weeks for a reply during busy times), but if I needed something urgently the phone was usually effective. Our table napkins were set up incorrectly, not a big deal. There was no dessert at the tasting dinner. We felt the cost for our dinner was more than it should have been, but we can't really complain because the food was delicious.

Emidio and the O'Malleys team are a great choice for food catering! I was worried about many things considering my parents are European and not familiar with a catering style wedding venue. Emidio prepared the best meal my parents have ever tasted at a wedding and people were full after eating their entire meal. His pasta that he recommended (penne ala vodka) was a HUGE hit with my Italian family and they are tough customers to please. The cocktail hour was catered with gourmet appetizers and platters full of the freshest and top season fruit. Finally, our dessert was too good and the only complaint would be that people didn't receive 2 of every kind.... thank you O'Malley's for the perfect meal!

Emidio is a busy guy, so he doesn't always respond to emails right away, but the food at our wedding was amazing, the service staff were excellent and very friendly, everything went smoothly. We had several guests tell us it was the best wedding food they ever had. I would recommend O'Malley's.

Excellent food at a great price. My only wish would've been faster responses to emails, but if I ever needed anything answered quickly, I would call and things would get done fairly easily. Very flexible and approachable. Thanks!

Emidio is very friendly and very easy to work with. He was flexible in letting us substitute certain items in our menu and was always available to answer questions or discuss our concerns. The food is good and the service the day of the wedding was fantastic (servers, set-up/clean-up staff). Our linens and dishware were also rented from O’Malley’s. Emidio was so nice, he even stored (prior to the wedding) and then set up our DIY table runners the day of.

This was the company my venue required us to use, and I was pleasantly surprised. They were absolutely fabulous. I ended up being really sick the day of the wedding. During my photos I overheated and needed to lie down for a while, postponing dinner by a while. They were able to spread the appetizers out and keep the food tasty until I was well enough to begin the reception. I was very happy with everything overall. My venue jacked up the price a lot of the food, however when I researched the prices through O'Malley's I found them to be quite reasonable. Thank you so.much for the fantastic experience!
