We had our wedding on 1/9/16 at The Foundry Art Centre in St. Charles. Orlandos is one of the preferred caterers and they were outstanding. We worked personally Jim Helton throughout the process. We booked pretty late (about 2 months in advance) and received a slight discount so we upgraded the bar to the call brands (which I recommend if doing liquor), and did the basic buffet package which had plenty of choices and I received tons of compliments on the food (Chicken Spedini, Roast Beef, Green Beans, and pasta con broccoli). i had some friends going in on Saturday morning to do table decorations so Jim dropped of the linens off on Friday night for us. He had everything handled so I did not have to worry about a thing on my big day. He is very responsive to both phone and email. I also liked the fact that your total bill (including gratuity) is payed for in advance so no surprises at the end of the night. I would definitely recommend them to anyone needing an off-site caterer, especially if they are one of the preferred ones. Best prices for comparable caterers and very responsive and flexible.

I absolutely loved my experience with Orlando's Maryland Heightd location and would recommend them to anyone, Whether your budget is $5000 or $50,000 they can offer you a wonder ceremony/reception. They have special discounted prices for off season, weekdays n afternoons. They also offer free upgrades with packages such as up lighting or your wedding cake. What really won me over was the great customer service. Every one of nice and very prompt with communicating and getting my needs/wants met. All our guest complimented how beautiful/clean the venue was not to mention they have great food.

Orlandos was recommended to me by one of my best friends who used them a few years ago for her reception. I was very happy with their flexibility during the first few months we worked with them, but when we went to do our final review a week before our wedding, the original person I had been working with wasn't available, and the one I talked to seemed like he had not a clue in the world what was going on. I was very flustered and frustrated with his professionalism and lack of communication skills. The night ended up being a blast, but it all seemed very rushed and not as well put together as I thought it would be. We paid a lot of money for our reception and I think it was worth it, but would definately go down on price a little more for what we got.

We worked with Denise from Orlando's to cater our wedding at The Sheldon Concert Hall. Orlando's is one of the preferred caterers at The Sheldon. Denise did an incredible job. We rented our table cloths, chair covers and champagne glasses through Orlando's, as well as appetizers and a buffet dinner followed by a late night snack of pretzels with assorted dipping sauces. Everything was delicious, and some of our guests said it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. Denise even saved some appetizers for my husband and me because she knew we wouldn't have time to eat them during the cocktail hour! I can't speak highly enough of Denise and her staff; they were very professional, and it felt so good knowing that I didn't have to worry about the food the day of the wedding. She took care of everything and helped the evening flow smoothly. We really couldn't be happier that we chose Orlando's.

We couldn't have asked for a better venue! The location on Dorsett has been beautifully remodeled, the common area rivaling the lobby of a posh hotel. The food was delicious. We chose the chicken spedini and the ham. Our staff the night of the event was very professional. Laurie Orlando and Maryellen are wonderful to work with. I felt Laurie was part of the family, helping us to plan our big day. Beautiful venue, delicious food, excellent service, all at an affordable price. I highly recommend Orlando's for your reception needs!

I had always heard great things about Orlandos when I was younger, so of course I looked into using them for our reception! When I wrote Laurie about pricing, she was very helpful and let me know that their South County location was a bit cheaper compared to their Maryland Heights location. I couldn't believe the price for the Deluxe menu package and all of the things that came with it! Our wedding was on September 5th, 2015, and we had our reception in the David ballroom at the south county location. We had originally accounted for a guest list of 200, but 174 ended up being our final head count.

I worked with Laurie Orlando and Jim Helton. Both were super helpful along the entire process! We booked our reception over a year in advance, and Laurie answered every single one of my e-mails and questions within a day. She was always super nice and helpful, and trust me, I asked a ton of questions!

You meet 2 weeks before your event to go over last minute details, pick out your upgrades, and make your final payment. We got 3 upgrades with the deluxe package, and we chose to upgrade to the call brand bar, passed hors d'oeuvres, and the pretzel bites as a late night snack.

The food was unbelievable! Every one of our guests kept saying how great the food was! We had the prime rib, chicken spedini, roasted veggies, potatoes au gratin, and pasta in red sauce. I wish I had gotten to eat more of it!!

Our guests kept telling us how great our reception was, and it really did turn out great! We were able to come in on the Thursday before our reception (on Saturday) to set up our escort cards, place cards, and centerpieces. It was really nice to be able to go in early and set everything up ourselves. They were always accommodating with any requests we had! From the beginning to the end, Orlandos was the perfect choice for our reception, and we will definitely be back to hold another event here in the future!

Orlando’s was amazing to work with! We had an off premise wedding at World’s Fair Pavilion in Forest Park and Orlando’s is one of the approved caterers. Jim and Sam were wonderful! They were very welcoming, informative and treated us like a member of the family. They are very professional, easy to talk to and very responsive.

I must say, everything was above and beyond our expectations. The food was delicious and the décor was fabulous. Jim was able to work with an area vendor to provide us a dance floor and string lights. It really brought everything together.

I really can’t thank them enough for all they did!

Standard wedding reception hall with good service upfront and great food. They were very flexible in planning and arranging the reception to your specifications. They delivered on everything they promised. I was quite impressed with the food. They offer a food preview occassionally but we didnt attend, so I was a little worried that it wasnt gonna turn out well, but it was all good! They were flexible in picking out the food as well, we were able to mix and match from a couple of menus.

Almost 2 years ago we Jim Helton of Orlando's Garden regarding our son's rehearsal dinner at the Lodge at Grant's Trail. Jim and his staff were so good, that we told him when our daughter got married, we would come back.

Last year we did just that when we started planning our daughter's wedding. Once again, Jim out performed himself. The wedding ceremony at the lodge was fantastic (even the weather cooperated, how did he do that?). The reception was excellent also. We heard so many compliments about the venue that Orlando's should really be proud of the great surroundings and excellent staff.

The entire staff from the shuttle driver to the bartender were courteous, helpful, pleasant, and gracious. In particular, we'd like to point out two key individuals; Jim Helton and Mary (at the lodge). We cannot say enough about these two employees. Consummate professionals are how we would categorize them.

We would highly recommend anyone planning a wedding or a simple dinner to engage Jim and his staff's services. We enjoyed working with all the partner companies and of course Jim Helton. Jim made it as easy as possible.

Thank you so much for all you have done. If we ever have another similar event, you know we'll be back. We might even come for a Sunday brunch (we hear they are fantastic also).
