    Arlene is superb! Everything she made was presented beautifully, absolutely delicious and completely in synch with our theme. We got everything we wanted. Arlene took our budget and ideas and made it all look effortless and seamless on the day, it was perfect. Our guests were just as pleased as we were, everyone commented on how yummy everything was. She genuinely added to the joy of our day.

    It's obvious Arlene is a pro with decades of experience. She was calm, clear, had great ideas, smart wedding advice and delivered on the day. Arlene knew what to do and when to do it. Everything seemed to go so smoothly. Her recipes, her timing & presentation, her staff, her presence & communication skills, she really made our wedding a more beautiful, enjoyable celebration.

    We can't recommend her highly enough. With Arlene, all we had to do was turn up, look our best and enjoy the day, she handled the rest. In all honesty, Arlene was the best wedding gift we received...and we gave it to ourselves! Thank you Arlene! Peter & Alex

    Bad Would not recommend.

    Very pricey, she cancelled on me and I had to figure out something completely different. She promised so much, even to hire all of the support staff (waiters, bartenders, etc. ). Wound up having to do it all on my own. Would not recommend.

    Arlene Cotler Catering's reply:

    Lauren
    I wrote to you right away to explain that my husband was ill.
    I sent you the contact information for another caterer and never heard back from you.
    As it happens my husband was diagnosed with cancer and it was very upsetting to read your negative comments.
    As you know I took the time to visit your venue and meet the rental company so I find your comments doubly deceptive and mean.
    I hope your wedding turned out well.
    Arlene
