    Fantastic Catering

    Chef Papa and his team did a phenomenal job with our catering. When we went for our tasting, he brought out plenty of different options for us to try. We were able to customize our menu. Everyone at the cocktail and reception raved over the food letting us know how wonderful all the food was. We highly recommend Chef Papa’s catering!!

    Family Owned Business That Treats You Like Family

    Our wedding venue recommended Chef Tom Papa along with some other catering options for us since we didn't live in the same state as our wedding. Not only did Chef Papa respond to our request before anyone else but his first question was "when can you come in for a tasting?"; not money, not details. Chef Papa takes pride in his food and wants to make other people happy with it, and that became obvious to us from the very beginning.

    We explained that we live out of town and gave him the date we were planning on coming back to town. He came in to his restaurant that day to personally cook for our tasting even though he had a huge event the night before and another that night. His website has some examples of catering menus he offers, so we mentioned to him beforehand which sounded like what we were looking for. He came prepared with the menu but then we talked about food we like and our guests dietary restrictions, and he started making notes, having ideas, and we developed a menu together. Then he went into the kitchen and started cooking, bringing us out course after course of our ideas and options.

    Chef Papa provided china, silverware, napkins, glasses, cake cutting, waiters- everything! We didn't have to bring a thing. The waiters that were there were so personable and friendly that we all knew their names and were laughing with them by the end of the night. My husband and I threw a curveball by switching tables throughout the meal to visit with everyone, but Chef Papa's crew didn't miss a beat! No one had an empty glass or plate the entire meal. They cut our cake beautifully and got the leftovers wrapped and packed for us without having to be asked.

    The food was incredible and satisfied everyone's tastes from the meat and potatoes folks to the gluten-free vegetarians. The value and quality of our sit down 4 course meal was far above what we payed for. The service was impeccable yet warm and friendly. Chef Papa treats you like family, and what more could you want on your wedding day!
