Thank god for Chef John. After we decided to go with a venue that did not have an in-house caterer, we were worried that we wouldn't be able to find a caterer that had more adventurous tastes rather than charging a fortune for run of the mill wedding food, not to mention nickel and diming us for every utensil and other items. Chef John gave us great guidance and even whipped up some custom vegetarian dishes that had even meat eaters excited. He worked well within our budget and his staff were courteous, friendly, and helpful on the big day. We especially enjoyed that he has his own portable "kitchen" so that things were fresher than they would have been had they been transferred from somewhere else. Other reviews have mentioned the difficulty with getting in touch with John and yes, that did happen with us as well, but I always had my questions/concerns answered at some point and he'd take the time to work out any issues/questions I had when he did call me back. Overall, the food was fantastic and the service was great so if you're looking for an inventive caterer who won't break your budget, Platinum is it.

I used John at Platinum Catering for my wedding. He really values quality and freshness which is what impressed me. We had chicken marsala and seafood pasta with parmesan risotto and caprese salad. The food was very good and all of the guests were impressed. Wedding food has a reputation for not being great but that is not the case with Platinum Catering. Many people even went back for seconds. John was very friendly and easy to work with. The only problem I had in dealing with Platinum Catering is that he was not good at returning my calls or emails. Many times I had to call and email two to three times and then wait a week for a reply. In the end he did a great job, but when you are trying to plan your wedding you are stressed out enough and don't need to deal with issues reaching your caterer. The day of the wedding it was an hour and a half after he was supposed to be there and I still hadn't heard anything. I actually had to call to see where he was. He was very nice and said everything was running smoothly and apologized for not calling. But that was yet another thing I shouldn't have had to worry about. Platinum Catering does a great job with their food but they need to work on their communication. The prices are very fair.

John was really great. You can't beat his prices. He didn't have any samples of his food for us to try. But the risk was totally worth it!!!

Overall, our experience with Chef John of Platinum Catering was positive. He was receptive to our ideas, and the food was delicious. He even made us custom dishes (sesame seared tuna, fire-roasted vegetables and basmati rice) that weren't already on his menu. However, he was very difficult to get a hold of, both by phone and email. We would call and have to leave a message, to which he wouldn't respond. After a few days of waiting, we'd call again, and again, voicemail. Then he'd call us back a week or so later. He hardly ever responded to emails; when he did, it seemed as though he hadn't read them. Also, we had an appointment a month before the wedding, to discuss the final head count, and he never showed up, even though it was at his office/kitchen. We called but received no response until late in the day saying he had written down the wrong time. This might not have been an issue for some, but we're from out-of-town and had to plan our meetings with vendors in advance. Finally, he was late the day of the wedding, which was kind of a big deal because we had rented linens from him; guests were showing up before he and his staff arrived and the tables weren't even set. However, as I said, the food was delicious, creative, and plated well, and our guests seemed to enjoy that it wasn't typical "wedding food." For more stressed brides, I wouldn't suggest Platinum Catering; Chef John is difficult to communicate with. If you're more laid-back, though, give him a try.

John Yoder Rocks! As a couple who had both be married previously, we wanted to scale things down this time around. Our big day included only our children, their significant others, and our parents. Many caterers wouldn't even consider working with us for a total guest list of 18.

John was not only up to the challange, but he was amazing. His beef tenderloin in a demi-glaze was the talk of the night. YUM! Every bit of the food was delicious, the service was incredible, and he took care of everything in our very own kitchen.... and the place was spotless when he left.

I would.. and will, happily use Platinum again. Thank you John for helping to make our night so special!

As a new bride, one of the most important things to making your wedding day successful is having great food. Platinum Catering not only met our expectations they exceeded them. The food was truly amazing with such a large selection and the staff was professional and excited to serve. We had several recommendations for catering services but once we met Chef John we immediately felt that he knew exactly what we wanted to make our wedding extraordinary . We had many international guest to accommodate and many events that needed hosted. We decided for Chef John to not only cater the wedding but for him to cater the rehearsal dinner and a breakfast for the guests on Sunday morning. Chef John really listened to our needs and the guests loved seeing Chef John and staff for three events as they knew great food was on the way! I would recommend Platinum Catering to anyone who wants affordable prices, a chef who listens, cares, and most all takes ownership for making your event his #1 priority. I almost want to get married again just for the food : )

Best food ever! My guests are still raving about it! We met with several caterers and when you meet with Platinum you actually talk to the Chef. Chef John can make you seriously anything and will modify anything to suit your exact tastes. He is very professional and everything was presented beautifully. Very very affordable. Top service and quality, very reasonable costs.

Chef Yoder and Platinum Catering provided exceptional service and an incredible dining experience for my wedding guests in an outdoor tent setting. Challenged with an unconventional request in creating a 5 course tasting menu, he presented beautiful platters to each table throughout the evening. Guests raved and couldn't wait for the next entree. Everyone is still talking about the Antipasto starter and the Beef Tenderloin with sage demi-glaze with bleu cheese. Outstanding! John and his staff were incredibly responsive and professional to any request, even in the rain, in addition to the tremendous amount of work that was required for this type of dining experience. Thank you to everyone at Platinum Catering for making our special day everything we could have imagined and more!
