We were extremely impressed with Quintessential Catering. The wedding was perfect and the staff contributed greatly to that experience. The food was fantastic!!! The brunch menu was unique and our guests loved it. The chicken salad was my favorite, but everything was fresh and delicious and displayed beautifully. The waffle station was more of a wow factor than I ever imagined. The room was full of the waffle aroma and it looked and smelled like Autumn!

The staff exceeded my expectations!!! They were socially engaging and the beverage server even told me she was honored to serve at our event. No request was refused!

The cake was an amazing duplicate of the picture we provided and was also delicious.

The office manager, Samantha worked with us to create a perfect event. I highly recommend this caterer!!

The day of our wedding went so smoothly, and a great deal of that was thanks to Quintessential Catering. We worked with Samantha and she made sure that everything was going in order. Everyone was fed in a good matter of time, and they made our table settings look gorgeous! They stuck to the colors I wanted and they stuck with the vision that I had described to them. The food was absolutely delicious. So many compliments from guests!! Their staff is so friendly and so efficient. Would recommend for a smooth sailing wedding!

We were really happy with our choice of Q Catering primarily because we were overjoyed to work with Cindy, who was up to the challenge of pleasing two vegetarians with meat-eating families. Coming back to the Heartland to get married was stressful to me for this reason only. But Cindy handled everything very gracefully and gave us tons of dishes/appetizers/sides to choose from for our small reception buffet. She was available whenever and wherever to speak with us on the phone or via e-mail.

On the day of our party/reception, the wait staff were very kind and courteous. Everyone kept telling me how great the food was compared to other weddings they had attended. And I totally agreed. The stuffed mushrooms were my favorite, and I was eating leftovers for weeks, Cindy, without a complaint. Thanks so much!
