Only fantastic things can be said about Matt & his catering services! From start to finish, he was great to work with, answered all our questions, and made sure we were taken care of. His Batman ice sculpture was the hit of the wedding!

After many stressful hours of searching for a caterer within my budget, I came across Top Shelf Catering and emailed them for a quote. Matt (the owner), immediately responded and assured us that we would be able to get everything we wanted within our budget and invited us in for a tasting. Needless to say, everything exceeded our expectations and he made everything fit into what we wanted to spend. There was no haggling or trying to cut corners, if we wanted, he gave it to us. Everytime I emailed, I receieved a response immediately and was never left with questions. On the day of the wedding, they were at the venue hours in advance setting up and were so accomodating to us and our guests. The servers were beyond nice and made sure that the bride and groom wanted for nothing and didn't leave until everything was cleaned and done. I am so fortunate to have found Top Shelf and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a well-rounded, full service catering company.

Top Shelf Catering and Events is a really really good place to start off with. Matt the owner of Top Shelf Catering and Events has a Chef degree in Culinary Arts. I, William Musial go to his shop on my days off and help out cook the food. I even test the food for him and see what is missing in the ingredient(s). I've know the owner for about 19-20 yrs and haven't seen him for about 6-7 yrs. The Owner of the company makes every thing right there at his own shop in Northdale. Come by the shop and talk to Matt about your next event and make your day glow... Call him at (813) 625-5820.

He also does Ice Cravings too at the shop 24hrs before the event. Ask him about the prices for the Ice Cravings and hell make your eyes glow even brighter.

Overall I made the best of my wedding day, despite the fact that the catering staff showed up late, with no coordinator. While friendly, they were disorganized and untrained at best. Thought this would be a great deal for the value - turns out you get what you pay for. The cake was rediculous and the staff set up my "wedding fountain" and tea and water station outside, despite it being an extremely windy day and my husband recommending that they not. Shortly after we had to do away with the entire station, as there were leaves etc floating in all of the beverages. To make matters worse, they didn't even fill the water glasses on the table! I paid for 4 appetizers but got 3, and they ran out quickly. Certainly did not for the number of people I paid for. An hour before the event ended the staff approached me and said that they were leaving and had to get the table clothes. What a joke - and I let them know it. Eventually (after me having to be extremely firm but kind) they realized it was best not to try and remove the linens before the end of the event. Very unprofessional. Overall, I wouldn't recommend nor would I ever use them again. I know for all the "extras" they offer it looks good from the outside, but trust me - you get what you pay for.

Top Shelf Catering and Events responded with the following comments:

First, we were not your contracted bartenders for this event. When we arrived the bartender (your friend) had already set up the bar on the patio. Second, you did not have us make a cake for this event. You had a cupcake tree. Third, your contract specifically stated a four hour event. Your reception lasted over 6 hours and some of our staff stayed, at no extra cost to you, to wait for the linens and they also helped your family fold all the rented chairs and tables and stack them for return to the rental company. They also helped clean the kitchen, dining area and patio. If you're going to do a review, please at least be fair. We appreciated the opportunity to help with your event and our staff went above and beyond to help as usual. We always do.

We used Top Shelf catering based on a recommendation from a couple we know that used them. Matt and Lauren were awesome. The menu selection was up to us. Matt can make anything! They did an ice carving for us, we had a nice selection of appetizers, a drink fountain, ice cream and pie bar and they even did our wedding cake. It was gorgeous. It was a special day we'll remember forever. Their staff was super friendly and helpful. Even our guests commented on how great the staff were. It was a wonderful day and a great price. A lot lower than any other caterer quoted us.

I would definitely recommend Top Shelf Catering for all of your Catering needs. Charlene was very helpful in every way and she will do whatever needed to make your day special. I also loved the fact that the linens were included, which is one less thing I had to worry about. Last but not least, the food was excellent!

If you are wanting a professional yet inexpensive caterer Top Shelf is the way to go!!

Worse catering I have ever experienced. Food tasted NOTHING like our "pre-tasting". They showed up with no bread and had to send someone to the store to get some. The divided the food up on 2 different tables. Guests were not aware that each table was different. They ran out of food at one time and guests had to wait. the did not have some of the promised refreshments. IT WAS TERRIBLE!!
