    Innovative Gourmet was an Excellent Catering Choice

    My husband and I worked with Innovative Gourmet for our wedding catering, and they went above and beyond to make our day perfect. Our guests complimented the food and the bartender in spades, and Kim helped us plan out every step of the night in advance, so that we could relax and enjoy the ride on the day-of. They even prepared a themed drink for us at no extra charge. Innovative Gourmet was truly a pleasure to work with. Thank you, Kim and Maria!

    The Guests LOVED them!

    Maria was such a wonderful and helpful caterer!! My guests kept coming up to us during the reception to say how amazing the food was. And I couldn't agree more. It was that good! They have so many food options to choose from, and Maria made sure we had a balanced menu for our guests. What you need from any vendor is great communication, guidance, and advice. I got that all from them 🙂 Everyone from this business made my reception absolutely perfect.

    Maria is wonderful!

    I worked with Maria via email to set up a menu for our reception. She was super responsive, accommodating, very kind and helpful, and answered all of my million questions. Unfortunately, we ended up having to change our venue because our guest count became too large for the space, and we ended up using a restaurant to make things easier. Ultimately, I wasn't able to use Innovative Gourmet. However, I know it would have been a great experience with them, based on previous reviews I've read and how wonderful Maria was to work with! I highly recommend!! We will definitely use them in the future for any catering needs!
