I have so many great things to say about the wedding catering services from Portabello Market in Pensacola, Florida. Portabello Market made such a unique wedding menu for me. I love seafood, but my husband is much more of a meat and potatoes man. Portabello created a shrimp and grits bar for me and a mashed potato bar for my husband, in addition to other seafood staples and barbecue fare. The staff was extremely professional and friendly. They even checked on me to make sure I had taken the time to eaten, and made me a special plate. They boxed up all the leftovers for us at the end of the night.

The quality of the food from Portabello Market was exceptional and the customer service is outstanding. The cost was fair as well. I highly recommend Portabello Market for wedding catering in the Florida Panhandle.

Chef Erika and her staff did such an AMAZING job providing the food for our wedding reception! I wanted to do some type of low country boil. Erika suggested we do a shrimp bar with mild and spicy boiled shrimp, corn, potatoes and andouille sausage. The remoulade sauce that accompanied the shrimp bar was outstanding! We also had rosemary braised beef with an awesome horseradish creme fraiche, caribbean rubbed pork with a delicious mango salsa, salad, grilled vegetables with a balsamic marinade, and mashed red potatoes bliss. Everything was PHENOMENAL!! All of my guests raved about the food as well. I couldn't have imagined anything better! Thank you Erika and your staff for providing an absolutely perfect meal and service!!

The team at Portabello Market did an excellent job of catering my wedding. The food was wonderful, the servers professional and everyone was extremely cooperative and friendly. Great food at a great price, especially for a bride on a tight budget. They were very willing to work with us to make our menu perfect and stick within our budget.

Portbello's food is TO-DIE-FOR. Guests at my wedding are still talking about how good the sun-dried tomato chicken and strawberry salad were. In fact, I'm sad I didn't eat a ton more at the wedding. Erika was so patient and flexible with me and my mother as we tried to sort out out budget, guest list and menu. We did a buffet and all of the food tasted just like it was freshly served the entire night. It was delicious, looked beautiful and was everything we wanted. I highly recommend Portabello for any event.

Ryan and the staff at Portabello Market were great to work with and responded quickly to emails. I planned my wedding from 5 hours away without ever tasting the food that we selected for our rehearsal dinner and the reception. The food was great! We had nothing but positive comments from our guests. We chose a low country boil for the rehearsal dinner, the food was fresh and hot and we had plenty of it. The barbeque at the reception was very tasty and my husband enjoyed the brisket. I would recommend Portabello Market for anyone considering a large catered event.

Ahh what can I say but perfecto! They really gave a wonderful selection for our reception venue. I was totally surprised since I never heard of this company. The small desserts came out perfectly. All my guest complimented on the food served and we did not hear not one complaint on anything. They set everything up and I did not even have to worry that it wouldn't be done. They informed me right before my wedding everything was DONE!

Erika did a great job! We loved the food, and she even personalized our menu. I love green beans, and my husband loves dressing, so we requested "fancy dressing" and green beans. She made the most amazin array of food, and if you book her, all I have to say is Rasberry Brie and Ginger Snaps. Seriously, everyone there ate that until they exploded, it was that amazing. She really gave us the look and experience we wanted.

I was a little nervous when they arrived 20 minutes later when originally scheduled, but they still arrived within plenty of time to set everything up. I thought the food and presentation was very good and that the prices were very reasonable. I got lots of compliments from guests on the food as well. It was $25 a person and I did a mix and match of one of there sample menus including beef tenderloin, grilled shrimp, chicken skewers, salad bar, and a couple sides. They took care of all set up and breakdown and we had a bartender and two servers which was plenty. The staff was all very nice and a pleasure to work with.

I would definitely recommend A Gourmet Occasion to a friend.
