    Great food!

    They have a nice selection of food and also tasted great! They are very helpful when trying to select your menu and very responsive when calling/emailing with questions and following up. Sarah did a great job assisting us with getting our wedding menu together.

    Amazing food and even better service!!

    The Flame Catering is AMAZING! The owner, Chef Smoke is so nice and he makes the most delicious food! The short ribs melt in your mouth. We had so many people compliment us on the food. Even better though than the food is the service. The catering team was so kind and so on top of everything. My husband and I didn't get a chance to eat too much but they were so nice to pack up food and store it in the fridge for us to eat after the wedding. They also made a point to check on us to see if we ever needed anything. Highly recommend!

Where do we begin with this caterer! We ABSOLUTELY LOVE their customer service as well as their food! Linda, Jennifer, Chad, and Chef Smoke are fantastic and super accommodating. They respond in a timely manner to any questions I have and they arrive on site to setup hours before the event as to not be in the way of the guests! They are defined by "full service" and that is exactly what you will get, down to dishes, line, food, servers, cleanup and design. We would recommend them to any of our clients whether it be a wedding, rehearsal dinner, brunch, or event in general! We cannot wait to work with you guys this wedding season coming!
