The guests have not stopped raving about the food! Everyone from the foodies to the nutrition-minded folks. The food was displayed beautifully and it was delicious too! I especially appreciated the special attention they made to ensure guests with dietary restrictions knew which food had what in it and were able to enjoy the food too! Stephanie Aubry was also very patient and flexible with my ever changing catering and equipment needs... and answered frantic phone calls about the weather predictions (it turned out to be a perfect day)!
your really good <3 you food is great
Everyone we worked with at Food Art was extremely professional and helpful. The food was outstanding!We had a plated dinner, and the staff served everyone at the table the same time, and acted very professional. All my guests complimented us and were so impressed with the taste and presentation.
We presented Stephanie at Food Art with a challenge: cater our all-vegan wedding! As you may imagine, not many vegan events happen in New Orleans. They were happy to acommodate us, however, and came up with a pleasing, if not particularly innovative, menu. We did a tasting and everything was good. Communication was clear - something I value highly. And somewhat at the last minute - a few weeks before the menu - we swapped out a lame menu offering for something excellent they came up with: Mushrooms Rockefeller. (They were awesome. Request them.)
Unfortunately, the day of our wedding things got a bit snafu'd. The weather turned against us - as in it rained all evening, when we were somewhat depending on the use of some outdoor space. There was also a last-minute callout of a server, leaving us short handed. Even so, I believe our event to be the exception to the rule as far as Food Art's service is concerned - most of the problems we encountered came out of coincidence and bad luck. While some things could have been handled better, it's always easy to see what someone else should have done after the fact isn't it?
The bottom line is that the food was good, and our guests enjoyed the event. Things go wrong; it happens. I wish I could give a rave review of Food Art - up until the night of the wedding I truly believed that's what would happen, as all of our exchanges had been great. I will say they're definitely worth checking out, very fairly priced, and as long as all of your servers are able to make it your event will probably be splendid.
Our choice of vendors in New Orleans was limited due to our venue (it was small and without a scullery and the coordinator there suggested using a caterer with prior experience). After receiving a proposal from Stephanie Aubrey at Food Art, we decided to use them based on our venue's recommendation, as well as the selection and price.
Stephanie was always professional and very sweet to work with. We communicated via email, as I was planning from DC, and she was always prompt in responding to emails. At the last minute we had to make rain plans, and she was able to coordinate her staff to set up earlier than expected on Saturday. When I arrived before the ceremony I was blown away by the presentation and professionalism of the staff.
The food was great and our guests really enjoyed all of the selections. The quality was top notch and everything tasted fresh and high quality. The presentation was elegant, and since we had a buffet, this was very important to us.
Overall, we are so happy with Food Art and would use them again in a second.

Food Art was an amazing caterer. I found them online and everything I did with them from that point forward was wonderful. They easily handled all of our last minute changes, and were very responsive. I dealt specifically with Stephanie at Food Art. They provided on site assistance at the wedding, and it was almost like having an additional day of planner from the end of the ceremony until the end of the reception. The food was beautiful and so was the service.
