Way above and beyond!
After finishing dinner, Bobby showed us the extensive and varied collection of decor items they had available for their clients. They had tons of items that we loved and ultimately ended up using, which saved us lots of money on decorations. Although it was our one and only tasting, we booked with David’s the very next day. During the planning process, Bobby always promptly responded to emails and texts (there were a lot) and made himself available on multiple occasions so that we could come to David’s with our coordinator to set up mock table arrangements and evaluate their decor items. He made many great table arrangements and decor-related suggestions that we would not have come up with without him.
Based on how the planning process went, we had sky-high expectations for our actual wedding day, and Bobby and his crew exceeded every one of them. They arrived early and had everything set up and ready to go in no time. As soon as our ceremony was over, the server assigned to take care of us had a tray with our specialty drinks and delicious appetizers ready for us so we could have a much needed drink and snack before family photos. As soon as the reception started, my wife and I each had a server assigned to us that brought us drinks and made sure we had plenty to eat (as promised). The food was incredible and both of our families were raving about how delicious it was, which is really impressive because there are a lot of food snobs on my side of the family. Not only was the quality of food fantastic, but the quantity of food they brought was even larger than we expected and not a single person left our reception hungry. The service was also excellent during dinner. They made sure to keep water glasses full during dinner so everyone could stay hydrated for all the dancing to come. They also did a great job of quickly and discreetly cleaning up after dinner and transitioning to dessert. We got the funnel cake fries with the strawberry and chocolate dipping sauces, all of which were absolutely to die for. Most of our guests were getting down on the dance floor and did not notice that the funnel cake fries had been put out, so Bobby took it upon himself to bring around trays of the funnel cake fries to everyone on the dance floor to make sure everyone got to try them with both dipping sauces. We also got our bartender through David’s. There were a lot of drinkers in the crowd but the line at the bar always moved quickly and never got too long for our liking.
All in all, we could not have been happier with the quality of service, quality/quantity of food, and professionalism of Bobby and his entire crew from our tasting to our reception. They delivered on all of the promises made to us during the planning and exceeded our lofty expectations on our wedding day. We would highly recommend Bobby and the entire crew at David’s for any of your catering needs.
Bobby and his staff went over and beyond what was expected and this is before even tasting the amazing food.
If you are having a wedding in Florida period, I would highly highly suggest hiring them. THANK YOU SO MUCH
