Copper Square Kitchen
My favorite part of the wedding planning process was when we got to do our food tasting, and the food by Copper Square Kitchen was delicious! They had a variety of sample menus to help us decide what type of cuisine we wanted. They were willing to create whatever food we wanted and could serve it a variety of styles. We opted for stations and had non-typical cuisine such as the taco bar, mac n cheese bar, and slider bar all with top notch gourmet ingredients. The food was a big hit! We also had a dessert bar and the cheesecake pops and macaroons were amazing! Beyond the food, the service was also great. Throughout the whole night, the servers kept our wine glasses full and also made sure that my husband and I were taken care of. They went out of their way to make us plates of food while we were chatting with our guests. They also made us a little to-go box with desserts for later in the evening. It was an overall great experience!
Griselda and her team were wonderful. I have planned events in the past for organizations and used caterers in the past but never have I found one as accommodating as Griselda and the Copper Square team. This team was always listening to what our visions were for our reception. They always asked if there was anything else we needed and if we wanted to change anything right up till just a few days before the wedding. We tasted tested our food a couple months before the wedding but we were still concerned about the food tasting as good as the test. The food was scrumptious and our guests are still raving about the food. We're talking--mac and cheese bar, ice cream sundae, Asian chicken salad in the typical Chinese food box, a coffee bar just to name a few as we wanted a variety of food stations. We told them we wanted our reception to be fun and that's just what they provided. Let me also say that the staff at the reception was so attentive and responsive. We heard nothing but good reviews about the food and staff. We made an excellent, excellent choice. Judy and Alan
Let me first start by saying that I planned my wedding Phoenix, but had not ever attended a wedding or knew any brides from Phoenix. I began my search for a catering company cold turkey. My venue, The Icehouse, had a pre-approved vendor list that narrowed the search, but I was fearful that catering was going to be the hardest part of the wedding planning process. ALL of my fears were put at ease as soon as my fiance and I met with Griselda Chacon with Copper Square Kitchen. Her warm demeanor and professionalism made her so easy to talk to and she was able to create a catering plan that met both our wants and our budget. The Hyatt corporation is such a high class company, and Copper Square Kitchen lives up the expectation and beyond. The cuisine is absolutely Five Star and the staff presents themselves in such a way that our guests truly felt like they were in a luxury restaurant. Griselda and her team worked closely with our decor company Encore Creative and our Let Them Eat Cake LA to create our DREAM WEDDING.
I could say a million more things about Copper Square Kitchen, but it really boils down to this: Griselda and her team care personally about their brides and grooms and go out of their way to make the big day perfect. Whether it is serving amazing food or actually placing each placecard or designing a custom bar, their team does it with ease and without the huge price tag one would expect for this type of service. Any Brides in the Phoenix area must talk with Copper Square Kitchen!
A few weeks after our wedding and we are still getting rave reviews on not only the food, but the service provided by Copper Square Kitchen.
We tasted with Copper Square and one other caterer, and there was no comparison, and the other caterer's food gave me such a belly ache! If you want a simple chicken or beef choice, you can pretty much go to anyone (although I'm sure Copper Square rocks this out too) but if you want a truly unique meal that your guests will be talking about weeks later, go with these guys. At our tasting they really pulled out all the stops. Griselda (the Catering Manager I think is her title) is just so warm and accommodating and I felt like whatever we asked for, she would make it happen. Susie, the Head Server is also the bomb. She made me feel like a princess not only at the tasting but on the big day.
First the service - on my wedding night every time I turned around my champagne was topped off and my drink was filled. Susie even placed a plate of food at my seat, knowing that I would be rushed saying hello to everyone (she was right!). Many of our guests commented on the high level of services from both the servers and bar staff - and the stiff pours were much appreciated by our guests (we provided the liquor which was a huge cost saver). Griselda was also there to make sure the night was a success.
I also want to mention that we used the Hyatt Downtown Phoenix(Copper Square is part of Hyatt) as our hotel of choice for our guests and they were beyond thrilled with the service, location, and rooms in the hotel too. We received a complimentary wedding night room as part of our package, and Griselda gave us an amazing room for our first night as a married couple! We plan to come back to Hyatt to celebrate our anniversary in the future.
On to the food ... like I mentioned, we did not want the "chipper chicken" nor the "vale" (OK if you haven't seen Father of the Bride that makes no sense). We wanted a unique variety of flavors that would please all of our guests. We really wanted food stations to remove the wedding stuffiness. I have to tell you that the presentation of the food stations by Copper Square is the coolest I have seen at any event. They use really cool tables and unique set ups to make the food look appealing, which trust me it does pretty well on its own.
So here is what we selected:
We had the Dippin Station at cocktail hour, which I pretty much missed, all though I did pound a few bread cubes dipped in Spinach Dip while lining up for the reception, and it was really good!
The Sonoran Street Tacos: Tacos for wedding food? Yes please! Our guests freaking loved it! They served chicken, carne asada, and pork carnitas tacos with warm shells and the most amazing homemade salsas and guac for toppings. They were all delish, as I learned at the tasting. Mid way through wedding planning I made a personal decision to stop eating meat, poultry, and pork. Griselda immediately offered to check with the chef on subbing shrimp tacos which I thought was really sweet, but I stayed with the original 3 choices.
Sushi Station: So we originally were going to do the Bisbee mini Kobe burgers, which were amazing at the tasting. They were a casualty of my newfound pescatarianism, because, I should get to eat at my own wedding right? And we were originally serving a lot of red meat. I was glad I switched it to Sushi, which anyplace else would have been risky, but it was SO GOOD and gave our guests another variety of flavor to experience. The presentation was awesome and the fish was so fresh and just the right amount of heat.
Roasted Beef Tenderloin w/Cheddar Mashed: This was for my meat eating Chicago family. Again, it was so good when I had it at the tasting, and the guests said that it was so juicy and tender - one actually said it was the best meat he had ever had! I enjoyed a heaping pile of the mashed potatoes, and I'm pretty sure that they serve those in heaven.
Mac'n'Cheese bar: Presentation wise, this was the only slight miss by Copper Square (nobody's perfect) because I had requested they be served in Martini glasses, and put on my menus "Mac'n'Cheese Martini Bar" so the guests were probably wondering where the martinis were because they just had small plates, but no biggie. The cheese sauce was soooooooo good and I loved that there was also a vegan option of soy cheese and eggless noodles for the few vegans in the house. They offered chorizo, bacon, veggies, etc.. as toppings and this was the hit of the night!
All in all, a HUGE thank you to Copper Square and the entire team. I couldn't believe how they basically threw down a kitchen in the side alley and everything turned out 5 star A+++++. Griselda was an absolute doll and I hope we stay in touch, and we will see you all when we hit up the Hyatt for our anniversary (unless of course we can afford to go to Tahiti where we went for our honeymoon, yeah, prob not gonna happen!) This was an extremely affordable caterer and top...
OMG how great was the food at my wedding!!!!!! Not only was the food EXCELLENT, the professionalism and customer service was excellent as well! We had over 200 guests at our wedding and wanted to have great food served at the reception and cocktail hour. Griselda at Copper Square worked with us to tailor a menu that met our needs and high expectations! The overall staff of this company was so great and very nice. They truly wanted to make sure that we were happy with the meal and service provided. I coordinated the tables and seating with Copper Square as well and everything looked wonderful on the day of the wedding. I had guest after guest, come up to me and tell me how great the food was and that they were very impressed with the presentation! If you're looking for great food with a GREAT company with a great reputation, you cannot go wrong with Copper Square Kitchen! Trust me!
