My husband and I were extremely pleased with the Chateau at Forest Park for our wedding reception. We used their venue and their catering services. People raved about our food and thought the place was beautiful. Our favorite feature was the multiple different package "levels" you could choose to suit your needs best. We went with the Modern Elegance package and it was great! Bambi and the other staff were very helpful and accommodating.

I used this venue and catering services for my daughters quinceanera(15th birthday) and they were very professional and accommodating to all of my requests for my event and even my last minute changes. I placed many, many, many phone calls to Nicole who promptly addressed my questions and concerns timely and professionally. When I met with Bambi to finalize all the details she went above and beyond to get every detail the way I envisioned. Everyone affiliated with this venue/catering company was friendly and courteous from the management/owners to the office staff to the waitstaff and bartenders. I highly recommend this venue for your next special event!!!

Our experience with Bambi was absolutely amazing. We hired her as a "day of" coordinator, but she truly was so much more than that. She helped us with vendors, kept us on track and gave us advise and ideas. She is very organized, extremely detail oriented and very easy to communicate with. If you want your wedding day to run smoothly and exactly as you planned, she is the person you need to hire. My wedding day was flawless. Thank you again, Bambi!

They have an amazing staff and they did a great job at cordinating our event. Bambi and her staff were great to work with. Bambi is really professional and has a lot of experience working with brides and bridezillas.

BUYER BEWARE!! I would NEVER recommend this establishment for conducting wedding receptions. Our son was recently married and the reception was held at the Chateau. We had purchased $250 of champagne for the toast, but due to poor judgment and miscommunication between the staff, none of it was served for the toast. Only after we had informed the staff of this, did they serve TWO glasses of champagne to the bride and groom only for the traditional cutting of the cake. We brought this to the attention of the reception's staff, where they admitted their mistake and informed us that we must contact Bambi in the main office to discuss reimbursement. We sent an email that was never answered, and tried to contact Bambi through telephone calls which were avoided. When we did finally get to talk to her, she was very confrontational, unreasonable and aggressively dismissive of our complaint. She informed us that it was not their responsibility to have coordinated the distribution of the champagne, that her staff had already poured all but two bottles, and that we would not be receiving any reimbursement of our $250 as the receipt states "no refunds." However, Bambi's assertions are inconsistent and incorrect.

First, that the majority of the champagne had been poured was incorrect. I personally saw behind the bar that only one bottle had been opened as there were only a few poured glasses in a serving tray. It was at that time that we instructed the bar tenders not to open or distribute the champagne as the traditional toast(s) had already been made. They acknowledged our request and stated that they understood.

Second, they billed us an "operations charge" on the receipt, so her statement that they are not responsible for the coordination of the distribution of the champagne is incorrect. If they were not responsible for this, then why, after the DJ had announced that the toasts were about to be given, did the bartenders open one bottle of champagne and proceed to pour a single tray of glasses?

Finally, the language "no refunds" on the receipt does not apply, as we are not asking for a "refund" but a reimbursement, two fundamentally different remedies. A refund is for items that have been delivered, which were subsequently disapproved of. A reimbursement on the other hand is for items that were never delivered. Given that we received NONE of the champagne we paid for, with the exception of the bride and groom's two glasses valued at $2.50 a glass which we do not contest, a reimbursement is what we have requested, not a refund. Bambi's statements give the appearance of saying anything to avoid reimbursing us for something that we paid for and that they never gave us.

Given our experience, it appears the Bambi is very unprofessional and conducts her business in a similar manner. She refuses to discuss the issue with my wife and I, and actually told me "don't call me anymore" and abruptly hung up the phone. If I was able to, I would award this establishment ZERO stars. As I mentioned at the beginning of this review, BUYER BEWARE, I would NEVER recommend hiring this establishment for wedding receptions.

The food tasted great and our guests seemed to enjoy it. However the set up and display was lacking. Overall, the look was cheap (the price sure wasn't!). Bambi and her team did a nice job, but I would look to other catering companies for future events.

We searched and searched the internet to find a great cater, since my fiance is a chef. We came across the Catered For You website and saw that they were not only a caterer, but could provide rentals, decorations and coordinate. We went to their open house, and loved everything we saw. My fiance had worked with their chef and said their chef was talented and his food was incredible. Bambi was a joy to work with and Maggie was the best! Maggie helped me with the decorations and Bambi worked with us on the food and timeline. We used Catered For You for the food, ceremony and reception rentals and also used them to coordinate the night. My wedding day was a bit of a blur, but judging from all the compliments we received, our guests kept tellin us how nice everything looked and how good the food was. Bambi was a fantastic coordinator and our night went without a hitch. I would highly recommend this group of talented professionals

Had a VERY good experience with the Catered For You folks. We were on a pretty strict budget, so $$ WAS important. I wanted someone that could do everything and make our reception hall look great, the food taste fantastic and a company that would be low stress to work with. These people nailed it. Thanks to Justin and Jordan! You made me look good!! I would recommend this cater to anyone.

I was 100% satisfied with them. They made my special day into my dream come true. Everything they did is exactly what I wanted and they were so helpful in helping me make decisions. The food was awsome, in fact I kept getting compliments on it all night. The staff was very friendly and I was able to communicate easily with them. It was nice to be able to have them take care of everything for me. I would definitely use them again and refer them to other brides as well.
