delish! catering & events
( 1.0 / 5.0 )
I wish I could write favorable things about Delish! However, my experience was unfortunate. When meeting with me in her tastefully designed space, Mary Berg was cheerful, professional, warm and excited about my wedding. I thought we had developed a good rapport. I was upfront about my limited budget and she told me she could work within that range. We developed a tentative menu. After our initial meeting, Mary would not return my calls for days at a time, and had vague information when we eventually did speak. After nearly 4 weeks of trying to pin her down on something specific - like whether she had developed a proposal - I came to the conclusion that she was avoiding me. I guessed it was because my budget was too small and she did not want the business, so I stopped calling and booked another (wonderful!!!!) caterer. With her experience she should have been able to tell me at the first meeting that she was unable or unwilling to work within my budget and I would not have wasted a month of wedding planning trying to chase her around. I'm sure her food is wonderful, but her customer service is not.

Deborah and her crew are simply amazing. The food is delicious, well-prepared and the cost value is tremendous. She even met me at my venue in order to determine the layout BEFORE I had booked her! Deborah loves to go above and beyond, which she showed when she ordered German bread rolls that she picked up herself from a source only she could find for my German fiancee and his parents. She also incorporated a recipe from a Utah vacation we had taken the previous year. It turned out fantastic, and I've had several people ask for copies of the recipe because it was so delicious. Deborah met with me any time I requested, cheerfully and quickly. She replied to me either by phone or email the same day any time I needed information. She clearly loves what she's doing, and is really talented. She will work with any budget and truly believes every bride should have great food at her wedding. Book her!! You will be in wonderful hands!
