Cyd's Meal Left Us and Our Guests Speechless

We recently hired Cyd鈥檚 Catering for our wedding reception dinner on 07/08/2023. In our planning we waffled back and forth between going with a professional caterer like Cyd鈥檚 or a restaurant that offered catering. We are SO happy we decided to go with Cyd鈥檚. Given the opportunity to try again, I鈥檇 choose Cyd鈥檚 every time.

One of the primary reasons we chose Cyd鈥檚 over other professional caterers was their EXTREMELY modern and functional planning/contract portal which allowed us to send questions, revisions, feedback, etc. directly to someone on Cyd鈥檚 team who was managing our catering plan. Catering events, especially weddings, are a big deal, and the ability to make instant tweaks and revisions as things come up was really nice鈥攁s opposed to waiting a few days for someone to re-write the contract and send us a PDF via email to review. In the end, we worked with a staff member from Cyd鈥檚 via their portal and over the phone to make 5-7 revisions to our original plan until we ended up with the perfect meal for our wedding.

And boy was it perfect. The selection? Perfect. The presentation? Flawless. The taste? Impeccable. Our guests were telling us the whole night that they鈥檝e never had food like this at a wedding before. One of the primary reasons we decided to hire Cyd鈥檚 was the assurance that they, as a professional catering business, would handle anything and everything. And they really did: when my wife and I showed up to our reception (shortly before dinner was to be served), the food was already setup, warm, and ready-to-serve. As the night progressed and dinner wound-down, Cyd鈥檚 staff cleaned off all our tables and put all the food into leftover containers for us. We didn鈥檛 have to worry about a thing the whole night.

Throughout our experience working with Cyd鈥檚 Catering, they were courteous, professional, friendly, and flexible鈥攄oing whatever they could to make our event perfect. Even Chef Cyd herself is a delightful, professional, and kind woman. It鈥檚 immediately obvious she has immense pride in her work and her business. I would hire Cyd鈥檚 for everything if I lived in the Des Moines area, and if you are looking for a caterer that won鈥檛 let you down, look no further.

Delicious, attractive food graciously served! Perhaps this is to be expected but realize the setting was a tent, no kitchen to work from and a nice, slippery hill on the path to the tent and the 225 wedding guests. These folks are amazing!
(Their fruit tarts were even delicious the next day.)
