MY FAVORITE CATERER! EXCELLENT FOOD & STAFF!
This full service catering company is excellent! I work for a university and was asked to put on an all-day party for 600 people from 10:00am-8:00pm and was given 3-days notice. Eatible Delights Catering not only pulled off a great event, they are also wonderful and easy to work with, never said no to any of my requests (no matter how huge), offered excellent service to my guests, made the event look good and flow well, offered high quality food and rentals, and made me look like a hero to my boss. The owner David is very nice and definitely knows how to put on a great party with delicious food. Catina who works there is a delight to deal with. This company is responsive, honest, offer great quality, and an excellent guest experience. I would highly recommend them for any size event.
Eatable Delights are AMAZING!!! I needed a caterer in 10 days for my daughter's graduation. A friend recommended me to give them a call. Catina and David were empathetic of this anxious mother's precarious situation, so they came in and saved the party. On top of that, we have a restrictive diet so, they created a very VERY lovely menu. Okay, so the FOOD?? It was delicious!!! We had enough food left over, so my spiritual center had a chance to enjoy it too. I left business cards near the food. When I came back the food AND the cards were gone. Lol. Overall, I was pleased with Eatable Delights. Their quality of the food, the presentation, the high level of customer care and professionalism that was exhibited from A to Z makes me a one happy returning customer. Thanks!
