    Delectables is amazing! They just catered my wedding this past weekend at the Lange Farm in Dade City. The food was amazing, everyone was thrilled with the choices!

    The cocktail hour was amazing. The Reuben bites were definitely my favorite! Even one of the waitresses came out to give my husband and I food while we were taking pictures during cocktail hour.

    The dinner was amazing the filet and chicken combo was definitely a hit with everyone. The staff even asked us when we wanted to have our dinner brought out to us, or if we needed anything warmer.

    I cannot say enough about how friendly the waitstaff was, everyone was so helpful and would do anything to help out! I even had a waitress help fix my bustle on my dress after it broke. All the little things the wait staff did was amazing!

    I would definitely recommend Delectables to anyone!!

    Amazing Food, Amazing Staff

    My daughter recently married and we used Delectables Catering. This is the third event that I have used them for and I have to say they never disappoint. The food was amazing as usual, the staff was helpful to me when I was setting up tables and very attentive to the bride and groom during dinner. Janice was very responsive to my many questions and last minute changes. Everything was perfect and I will be using them again for sure.

    Definitely recommend for weddings!

    I absolutely recommend Delectables Fine Catering for wedding events, as they made my February 2020 wedding memorable to every guest who attended. As the bride, I still ate during the reception because our surrogate taste testers (family in the area) said everything was so delicious they were positive our selections would be too; we didn’t coordinate with Delectables to have our selections available during the tasting session, so our testers only tried a couple items we selected. The feedback relieved me, as I am known for being picky about food; admittedly, there are more foods I don’t like than foods that I do. I don’t eat at chain restaurants or fast food, as I want food prepared a certain way and can barely stand the smell of most cooked food. I share these peculiarities only to emphasize the significance of Delectables exceeding my expectations.

    Communication: A+.
    I highly value responsiveness and clear communication, and Janice met these expectations with her response time and ability to articulately write and speak. She methodically and quickly answered questions via phone and email, especially while I was completing my venue’s contract that required information about the caterer. After providing advice and walking me through various options based on my preferences, Janice patiently prepared multiple proposals as our decisions fluctuated. We felt like she genuinely wanted to ensure everything was how we wanted before signing the final contract and submitting payment. Janice proactively informed me when our check arrived and who the team’s supervisor would be during the wedding. She also worked around our last minute change from round to long tables. I truly appreciate her professionalism.

    Food: A+.
    Cocktail hour: We selected four butler-passed hors d’oeuvres: seafood shooters, vegetarian spring rolls, chicken satay, and prosciutto-wrapped mozzarella. The seafood shooters were exquisite. The groom was initially reluctant to order them because he pictured seafood in a shooter glass, but after our tasters told us how amazing they tasted and that they weren’t in a glass, we ordered them. The seafood was neatly displayed in a large, clam-like shell and covered with a cheese blend; we used sticks from the satay to scoop the seafood into our mouths. These were by far my favorite. Next favorite was the chicken satay with peanut sauce. They were acceptable without the sauce but so much better with it; I ate it both ways as to not double dip; they’re too long for a single bite. They had a tempura-like coating which was different than how I’m used to satay but still good. The vegetarian spring rolls were typical spring rolls but came in third because I don’t like fried food. And the prosciutto-wrapped mozzarella ended up last because I’m not that fond of meat or cheese but still wanted others to enjoy them, which they did. The prosciutto was thicker than what one typically buys at the store.

    Dinner: We ordered the Stations Buffet package and added two extra stations so we could have a variety of food stations: sushi, pasta, Indian, and paella. The sushi and pasta stations had a chef, so those options each cost $100 extra. The package also included a carving station with herb-roasted Châteaubriand au Jus, caprese salad, exotic bread display, and gourmet coffee bar with enough condiments my dad could make himself an Irish coffee using whiskey from the bar. We received raving reviews on everything but the sushi, which guests found a little dry and plain compared to Wegmans sushi and the other stations. But it didn’t affect the experience at all because guests overwhelmingly enjoyed the other three stations and Châteaubriand; they could taste the difference in the higher quality cut of meat. The made-to-order pasta was fresh, delicious, and accommodated vegetarian and non-dairy guests. The Indian food exceeded the groom’s father’s expectations, as he assumed it would be too watery; he’s from Guyana and extra particular about his curry but surprised himself and enjoyed this version, which wasn’t watery. The food was tasty and a couple of the items had a delightful spicy kick to them. There was a good variety, so it accommodated vegetarian and non-spicy guests. I loved the paella for how beautiful it looked, how fresh and flavorful it tasted, and how its variety of seafood, meat, chicken, vegetables, and rice accommodated our “only land animals,” “only sea creatures,” “only chicken,” and vegetarian guests. Janice advised this was a lot of food for under 40 guests, but we knew it wouldn’t be wasted since the servers box it up for guests to take with them. My family enjoyed it for the next day’s lunch before their departure flights, and the groom’s local family is still loving it! It’s been almost a week and the food still tastes amazingly delectable. Now I know how the company got its name.

    Service: A+.
    During cocktail hour, one of the servers actually brought a tray of hors d’oeuvres to us; we had been taking pictures and she figured we must be hungry and may want to eat something before meeting back up with the guests. I appreciated the thoughtfulness and ability to try the food too. The supervisor, Randy, managed his team well while also helping them. He was professional, and he executed the event as I’d conveyed to Janice. It’s a positive experience to work with such a well-coordinated company. They made smart use of the space with a logical layout of the multiple stations to prevent crowding or lines. The food and even coffee were magnificently displayed, which did justice to the food — a true demonstration of art enhancing another form of art.

    Many thanks to my wedding venue, Legacy Lane Weddings, for recommending them! They endorsed Delectables so wholeheartedly they even had them cater the farm owner’s daughter’s wedding — and now you know why I absolutely recommend them too!
