Boerner Botanical Gardens
Was given an idea of complete service and that didn't happen quite as described. Would recommend venue but must get your own day of coordinator too Forgot to set head table as discussed and shown on map. This was upsetting Beautiful ceremony amazing food
They cater many of the county facilities and they do a good job. The location was awesome and staff courteous. Bartolotta makes great food too.
Professional and accommodating staff, beautiful venue and excellent food!
Bartolotta Catering did a fabulous job on our wedding! The food and service were outstanding. They were flexible with our vision for the menu and even let us create our own dishes.
The gardens were the perfect setting for our fairytale wedding. And the fact that the gardens came with Bartolotta services was a double bonus. We are STILL getting messages and phone calls about how absolutely perfect the reception was. They are professionally staffed with people to greet guests, serve food, and make sure all the vendors arrived. Everything went so smoothly, I didn't have to worry about it. They even helped us make our centerpieces and put them up. Our wedding coordinator went out of her way to help us in any way she could.
Even more, our bridal party was far out into the back of the gardens taking pictures and two servers walked all that way to make sure the bridal party was fed by serving appetizers on silver platters. It was so sweet!
The setting is beautiful, the atmosphere is elegant, and the service is professional. When I walked into the dinner hall after they had set it up, I cried because it was so wonderful. They even added some Cinderella touches that I didn't pay for because they knew I loved Cinderella.
The food was also delicious. This was another thing that we got incredible compliments on. Every plate was individually looked after and prepared. We had one vegetarian entree out of 200 guests and Bartolottas made sure to get her a pasta dish discreetly. Gourmet excellence!
If you want a classy (and worry free) wedding in a tranquil setting fit for royalty... Bartolotta catering at the Boerner Botanical gardens is the place to go!
A wonderful place to have an outdoor ceremony. We could not have found a more beautiful place to have our wedding. The one complaint I have is the staff is sometimes slow to respond to phone calls or emails.
The food was excellent, the service was as well. Very elegant service, we had a plated lunch for our reception. The staff were very attentive and willing to do extra set-up and take down to incorporate some things I did myself. I would very highly recommend them to anyone. The costs for a smaller mid-day reception are MUCH more affordable than for a bigger evening reception. Very happy with them!
