great looking, tasting food great communication
Elena was our contact and was extremely helpful I creating a menu that they do not typically offer. The entrees were particularly important to us so we coordinated with the chef's to plan out our perfect reception dinner. The service was great throughout the entire party from pre-ceremony all the way to tear down. The guests are still raving about the food that was served.Working and planning with Elena and the Green Turtle Catering Team was great but what was even better were the RESULTS! The food tasted amazing and what was so great about the entrees was that they helped collaborate to make our ideal meals! People are still raving about the food and the cold cuts provided. The set up was very fast the communication between staff and the coordination Meghan Farrar from FarrEver After Events was so smooth. As the Bride I was hardly even approached because they fixed any and all issues themselves and I was none the wiser AKA YASS! The "Green Machine" (food truck) ensured the food was hot and cooked on site which is so important when feeding over 100. I am so thankful for this team and the service they provided as our standards are from being in the industry and we were not let down!Sent on 02/14/2020

"Dream Food" offerings realized!
I am so grateful for the work Elena, the catering director, did in making my not typical food selections a possibility! It was amazing. We worked with the GM, and chef to plan out what could realistically be done within our budget and boy did they deliver. The planning and execution of my eco-friendly zero waste wedding was also done seamlessly. Thankful for the green machine being a giant mobile kitchen that provided endless hot food at our outdoor venue. Highly recommend Elena and her team!Sent on 03/12/2020

I cannot express how much we loved working with Elena and team. This was a 10 month process with Covid 19 restrictions thrown in the middle of planning it. We were not sure the Keys would open back up in time, we had to change our plan from a buffet style to plated meal 3 weeks before the wedding, and change some of the menu items. But they pulled it off, with all of our guests raving how delicious their meal was. Service was excellent and a good time was had by all. Thank you for a beautiful evening.

I had the pleasure to work with Green Turtle this past wedding at a wedding in Key West. The staff was phenomenal! They knew what team work was all about and helped accomplish a quick turn around from ceremony into reception for 90 people in less than 30 mins! Their professionalism was apparent and the food was delicious! I cannot wait to work with them again in the future!
