    Delicious Food, Great Staff

    Jeff and Tiffany were amazing to work with! Tiffany was very quick to respond to all of my emails and endless questions. Jeff made delicious food and was sure to check in about all of the little details during our final details meeting. Their staff on the day of the wedding was wonderful. We had someone who was specifically assigned to us and made sure we had everything we needed, including the right flavors of cake for a late-night snack. Jeff really knows what he's doing and we loved working with him and his team!

    Jeff and his team were awesome! I got married at the Carnegie Center of Columbia Tusculum and it went off perfectly. Everything from the tasting to the day of was very professional. His staff was extremely helpful throughout the process answering our questions and getting what we needed. Oh, and the food was amazing! We got so many compliments, including "this is the best wedding food I've ever had!"

    Jeff was so much fun to work with for our 9/30/17 wedding at Greenacres. He’s such a hard worker and his team made sure our day was flawless from the food to the drinks being served. They’re a one of a kind, top notch team!

    We first met Jeff when he catered my daughter's rehearsal dinner. I was so impressed with his food, service and responsiveness that he was our first choice to cater our wedding. Jeff did not disappoint! The food was fabulous. We had a plated salad and then 3 stations where our guests could pick up their plated food. Everything went perfectly. I love Jeff and his staff. They took care of all of the details, settling our tables just as I imagined and making sure nothing was left undone. I highly recommend Jeff Thomas Catering!

    Jeff and his staff are amazing! They did an awesome job catering my wedding last weekend. They thought of every detail. They had no problem accommodating me for everything I needed. (Including 3 vegan meals at the last minute.) They are first class all the way! I can't say enough great things.

    Jeff Thomas and his staff helped us have the most perfect wedding celebration! Jeff listened to our vision, which was different from a lot of other events that had been held in the space. He was candid when our vision was not logistically feasible or might make practical things difficult, but he did everything he could to make all of our details work seamlessly together the day of—we could not possibly be more thrilled!

    The food was incredible: we had a lot of diet restrictions, and Jeff came up with a menu that had both a vegetarian and a vegan/gluten-free option. They were so creative that more than half of our guests opted out of meat, and everyone loved their meals! While the meals were incredible, the salad, hors d'oeuvres, and iced latte bar stole the show; all of this made feasible on a limited budget that JTC was happy to work with. The food was fun twists on comfort food - still elegant thanks to Jeff's artful plating, but not your standard wedding fare. People were delighted all around!

    Above all, Jeff Thomas and his staff made all of our guests feel comfortable and welcome. My husband and I had a dedicated server all night; we never had to ask a friend to bring us water or anything because the incredible staff was constantly checking in. Everyone matched the tone of our wedding perfectly, which was fun and lively and community-driven.

    I'm a bride who was thrilled about my marriage but not necessarily as enthusiastic about the planning of a wedding; I'm not someone who dreamed about getting married my whole life, and I was in law school and my husband was finishing his PhD through the whole planning process. We also planned the whole thing from out of state! Jeff and his staff answered our questions at lightning speed for months and made sure to eliminate every and any stress they could. It was one of the most fun, joyful weekends we have had, thanks in very large part to Jeff Thomas!

    We cannot recommend JTC highly enough.

    Jeff Thomas provides much more than catering! He met with us several times to get our menu right, organize the tables at the venue, talk about flower arrangements, colors, the timeline for the night, anything you can think of he was happy to help with! He was also very accommodating to my schedule. I was an out of town bride and only had a few dates available to try the menu and meet with all of our vendors so he sent one of his chef's to my parents house while I was home so we could try our menu. Jeff and his team thought of everything, and they helped our day flow seamlessly! The food was absolutely amazing and I got compliments all night on the variety and the flavor of all of the stations! Thank you Jeff, you were great!

    ABSOLUTELY THE BEST CATERER IN THE AREA!!! Jeff is so personally involved and it wasn't until I met with him that I felt at ease with the over all execution and design of my wedding. The food is absolutely amazing! Both my sister and I used him for our weddings and our guests are still raving about the food and the service. Our weddings were completely different, hers was more traditional with a sit down dinner and mine was a lounge styled reception with stations. He created the stations to be elegant and still seem high-end and not "an economical option." My husband and I were looking to create a relaxed and fun vibe at our reception without losing the sense of luxury, and of course, Jeff executed exactly that. Also, let me say, the night of my wedding, I had an amazing member of the staff checking on me, making sure I always had something to drink and eat. It was incredible so thank you Jeff Thomas!!!! He is an absolute must have.

    Of all the vendors we used for our wedding, I am most glad we used Jeff Thomas Catering. We could totally trust them with all the catering details (and more-honestly it was like getting a free event planner, too!). We felt like royalty with the way the serving staff treated us during the reception. They were flexible and willing to meet any of our requests and made the whole process fun and very low-stress. Jeff even let us use some of his frames for table numbers and candle votives totally for free. I would HIGHLY recommend Jeff Thomas and his entire company to anyone looking for a great value in a caterer!

    WOW!!! Jeff Thomas and his staff are incredible! The food at my daughter's wedding was "not wedding food!" I cannot say how many people said that the food was the BEST they had ever eaten at a wedding. The staff was wonderful-helpful with out being in the way! Please use them!

    Everyone raved about the food at our wedding - and the staff. They were fun, friendly, and extremely professional. We had a great time at our tasting with Jeff. He really made it happen for us. He worked with our gluten-free pescetarian diet to make a dinner that all of our guests loved. He and his staff worked within our budget and recommended some great combinations. He knows weddings, which really helped since we did not have a wedding planner. His staff was gracious and made our night really special. Lynn, the captain, and Amy, our server, were awesome. The staff helped us pack up and clean up at the end of the night which was really sweet and very much appreciated.

    From start to finish, JTC was top notch. Jeff conducted our tasting in his home and treated us like special guests. It was a wonderful start to our working relationship. In follow up meetings and emails, JTC was professional and responsive. We had a stations menu (American, French and Mexican) for our wedding. The Mexican chicken mole was the crowd-pleaser. The JTC staff was exceptional. Lynn was our head table server. She was on top of everything! We didn't want for anything all night. She even gave us a gift wrapped bottle of the first champagne we drank that night. Nice touch. I highly recommend JTC.

    We worked with Jeff Thomas who provided catering services for our wedding at an outdoor wedding in Cincinnati. I can not praise Jeff's services high enough! Jeff is fantastic to work with. He gave us much of his personal time to plan out the menu and give us many suggestions for the reception. His experience and confidence were amazingly comforting to someone never having planned a party before.

    Our food was fabulous. We wanted a cocktail party atmosphere where our guests could wander, socialize and enjoy amazing food. We had a great menu that our guests are sill raving about. They say that it was the best food they have EVER had at a wedding.

    What many do not think of when picking a caterer is the quality of service that comes with the food. Jeff's team was awesome! They were professional, kind and service oriented. We had servers, bartenders and those who executed the evening seamlessly. Jeff provides only the best and you will most absolutely have a positive experience working with his company.

    We had a wonderful New Year's Eve wedding, and a large part of the experience was the excellent food and service provided by Jeff Thomas Catering. Multiple people told us throughout the evening that the food was delicious, and much better than that which you normally find at a typical wedding reception.

    Jeff Thomas met with us on multiple occasions to make sure that everything was catered exactly to our preferences, and he was able to accommodate all of our requests. The staff on the night of the event was very professional and cordial, and it was comforting to know that we were in good hands.

    Highly recommended.

    AMAZING. Jeff Thomas, from our first meeting with him, was excited for our event, and added details and extras we hadn't even begun to think of. His food, of course, was fantastic, but moreover, he went so far beyond the extra mile of what a caterer does, he really made our wedding reception a beautiful event. I continually get comments about how wonderful the food was, how "cool" our reception was, and all of it is due to Jeff Thomas. I cannot encourage you enough to meet with him and at least share with him some of your ideas and see what he can add to them.

    I should note that he also catered our rehearsal dinner in our small house in Clifton, and made that as effortless as the wedding, and our made our house and families so very happy and excited for the following day's events.

    From Jeff Thomas himself, to his wonderful servers, to the extra details... he made our wedding unique and beautiful.

    AMAZING!!! The food, service and value for our dollar was outstanding. Our guests still comment on the food from our New Orleans theme wedding. Jeff created a unique menu for our guests who are still talking about it a month later. The service was second to none. Lynn was our captain and she did a wonderful job. My husband and I did not wait or want for anything. The staff took care of our drinks and food all evening. Jeff and Lori are great to work with and really worked with our tight budget. JTC is a great value and I highly recommend making an investment in your catering services for your big day. WORTH EVERY PENNY!

    Jeff Thomas Catering is the best of the best in Cincinnati. They worked within my budget to create a memorable and delicious meal for my wedding guests. They responded quickly to any questions or changes that were required. The service during the reception was outstanding, as well. I would use them again - and would recommend them to anyone. The food was superb.

    They were on the preferred list from the Taft Museum (reception site). First time we met Jeff we knew he was the one to do our wedding. His visions and knowledge were remarkable. He's been all over the world finding the right recipes for his business. The food was delicios and we had compliment after compliment on how wonderful the food and service was. We also were told over and over how great they are before the wedding. He was a great reputation and lives up to it! They truely know the business and do whatever they can to make your reception be what you want. Never had another caterer in mind ever becasue he was the best!

    If I could give Jeff Thomas Catering 10 stars, I would. First, we knew Jeff was great because in our pre-wedding meetings at our reception location (Ault Park) he offered insight on everything from decor to layout to things that work at AP and things that don't. Great advice. Next, we had our tasting for our food selections (stations) - the food was amazing. We were cautiously optimistic that the food for a crowd on our wedding day would be just as good - and we were not disappointed. The food and service was outstanding on our wedding day. And our guests noticed as well! To this day, it was one of the best meals I've had (and who typically says that about wedding food?).

    I could not have asked more from a catering service! Initally, I was worried about making my dream wedding come to life, because I wanted it in my mother-in-laws backyard. How was I going to pull everything together in a cost effective way, that was enjoyable for my guests. Jeff Thomas has over 20 years experience in catering, and it turned out my wedding was small potatoes compared to what he's created over the years. The have a vast menu to choose from, and are willing to mix and match to your desire. My guests (which varied from people with disability, food allergies, the young and restless, to people that don't speak English) all loved the caters service!

    The staff at Jeff Thomas are fantastic! From the initial consultation to the actual day, nothing could have been done better. Jeff Thomas himself came to my house for the consultation and then returned later for our tasting. What a great service for a busy bride! Everything tasted fresh and all my guests were very very pleased with the variety.
