Five words - The Temple And Mallory Huff. Catering DSM was amazing - Mallory was the one who oversaw both the Temple and the Catering. She was exellent beyond mesure. Quick to reply, helpful, professional, and fun. Everyone raved about how good the food was. We had apps and drinks first followed by dinner, and then late night apps. I had a number of food restriction guests (dairy, gluten, nuts, no meat, no pork, etc) and Catering DSM was able to handle them all without any stress. We were utterly no help on picking the menu out the first time and with only a few descriptive words (classy and fun) and a couple of edits - everything came full circle. The tasting ahead of time gave us a good idea of what the night would be like and a chance for feed back. The servering professionals made the night complete. Mallory even helped me out with a bit of miscommunication on the shuttle and re-arranged the dance floor layout for us. Everything was absolutely perfect. I do not know if another manager would be as good, but I know how great this was.Sent on 10/24/2015

I was a little nervous when I booked with the Temple and was stuck with whichever Caterer they used (some venues let you bring in your own). My family is very picky about the quality of food they eat - many of them are chefs or at least attended culinary school. However, Catering DSM was perfect! I sent them several changes to our menu over the course of 8 months and they always responded right away and helped me sort out what would be best for my guests.Sent on 11/04/2013
I was even more impressed when they were passing appetizers, wine, and beer on trays during cocktail hour. I feel like they were always classy and professional. Some of their servers went above and beyond to help my grandparents with special requests. They also include an event coordinator with their service who made sure my husband and I were taken care of at all times! My wedding turned out beautifully and I couldn't have asked for a better venue or caterer.
