We really enjoyed our experience planning the menu for our wedding. They had so much experience and the food we had sampled was great! They don’t have a great response time and only one way to contact them, which was stressful close to the big day. A lot of the time we had no idea what was going to happen. The steak was dry, but the rest of the food was delicious. I really wish the process had been easier because the cocktail hour was wonderful and most of the dinner was pretty tasty.

Carla and team were a dream come true after a difficult search to find a caterer that made beautiful, tasty food that fit within a budget. They were so flexible with our requests and needs, and we really felt like Carla was working for US instead of the money. We wanted to bring our costs down, and she didn't fight us on it. She made great suggestions, and we were so satisfied with the outcome. I was a little distracted by the madness of my wedding the day of, but I remember the food being excellent and having no issues with anything. I would definitely recommend Master's Meals to others looking for local, delicious, affordable catering.

Although the food was great and the chef was charming, working with Bryan, the office manager, was a complete nightmare. On average it took over a week and multiple emails to get a response from him. I had to track down the suppliers of the beer we wanted to serve myself, I was under the impression that was part of the caterers job, but maybe I'm wrong about that. There was a confusion the day of the wedding on what time they were supposed to arrive at the venue, so even though they had all of our table linens and we couldn't finish setting up without them and I was supposed to be walking down the aisle at 430, they did not arrive until 4pm. Our ushers had to stop seating guests that were arriving in order to help finish setting up the tables! The worst part of the whole thing is that when we didn't know where they were or if they were showing up, they were completely unreachable. My father in law was on the phone with a friend of his who owns another restaurant to bring something - anything - down when they finally arrived. And when they did show up, there was hardly an apology. Just, "Oh, I thought you knew we were arriving at 4". I understand that this is a family business and that Bryan is the chef's son, but in all honesty Bryan either needs someone managing him to keep him on track, or an office assistant who is actually capable of running an office, which he is not. I know that catering a wedding is not cheap, and Masters Meals was definitely more than we had originally budgeted for the wedding, but I thought when I signed the contract that it was worth the price for getting the food we wanted and what looked like it would be excellent service. Boy was I wrong. For $6,000 I shouldn't have had to wake up the day of my wedding wondering if my caterer was going to show up. I would never recommend this company to anyone.
