ADELE'S Creative Catering Service catered our Anniversary on 5/18/2013. She and her staff was awesome, well-groomed, respectful, clean, and polite. We had Hors d'oeuvres,(THE FRUIT WAS FRESH AND SWEET),My Main Meal consisted of Ceasar Salad, Roast Beef, Stuffed Chicken, Green...

THE COMMENT FROM MY GUEST STATED THE ROAST BEEF WAS SO TENDER AND DELICIOUS THAT YOU CAN CUT IT WITH A PLASTIC FORK. And all the food was Absolutely DELICIOUS. People are still talking about the food. She also prepared a table of assorted desserts not to mention our Beautiful and Delicious Anniversary Cake. Adele's setup of the tables was awesome. The tablecloths was neatly pressed and placed around the tables evenly. The table settings also had a crisp to them. My husband and I was so pleased with the hospitality and the service of Adele's Catering we are planning other events to have Adele Creative Catering cater for us again. Also, some of our guest are interested in using their services.

Couldn't Have Picked a Better Caterer

Adele catered my wedding on 10/27/2012 and she and her staff did an awesome job. The food was out-of-this-world good. With all of the delicious buffet choices we had (prime rib, stuffed chicken, mac & cheese, eggplant parm, and so much more) it was hard to believe we paid the... Read More price that we did. Plus, the cake she made was so beautiful and sooooo delicious that people are still talking about it and how they wish they could have had a whole one for themselves. Adele and her staff work hard to make your day go perfectly. She was at our hall the entire day before the wedding and she made sure that everything was set up the way we wanted it. Honestly, I feel that she went above and beyond the duties assigned in her contract to make our day perfect. She always answers your questions no matter how ridiculous they may be (and we had some pretty ridiculous questions at times) and she is a very reassuring presence when things seem to go crazy during the wedding planning process. The day of the wedding, everything went smoothly, Adele's staff served my husband and I at our table, and her husband brought us out food from cocktail hour while we were getting our pictures taken. All in all, we could not have asked for a better caterer. The food was amazing, staff was awesome, the price is more than fair, and Adele is the best. My mother-in-law actually still uses Adele for catering work functions.

FABULOUS fantastic caterer

Adele catered my wedding yesterday, and I just need to say how absolutely wonderful she is! Her food is just amazing (I'm talking melt-in-your-mouth roast beef, tender chicken, the best mac-n-cheese I've ever tasted, and green beans so good I want to eat an entire bowl... Read More full). Her service is just as fantastic. Adele was with me every step of the way, making sure that everything was as I wanted and making sure I wasn't stressing about anything. Her setup looked wonderful and played right into our own DIY decorations at the venue, and her servers were so incredibly helpful! They were always asking whether I needed anything, they refreshed my drinks, and always had a smile. Adele even personally served my husband (!!) and I so that we didn't have to go up to the buffet ourselves. She even helped my father by plating his meal for him, because he has bad ankles. I can't say enough great things for Adele! She really is the best person and most caring professional, and I am so glad we stumbled upon her business! Even with all the personal attention, fabulous food and great help, Adele is still so affordable!! Her quality is that what you would hope to expect from a meal which costs $80 or more per person (which, really, I've had those $80 meals at other events and they're never this good). But she charges less than half of that!! Incredibly affordable, which was much appreciated on our tiny budget. Throughout our entire reception, all of my guests kept raving about how fantastic the food was. Oh - and the cream puff and cupcakes! OMG. The cream puffs are homemade (not those mini Munchkin-sized cream puffs you get at BJ's... I'm talking two-hands, cut-it-with-a-knife sized cream puffs) and they are so incredibly delicious, light and fluffy. Our cupcakes were incredible - our guests couldn't even wait for us to cut our cake topper before they started digging in! And our cake topper - Adele MADE a beautiful edible flower to go on top of it. I was expecting just another regular cupcake for us to share, but once again she went above and beyond our expectations and gave us a little mini cake! Everything was just perfect. She really did make our evening so enjoyable. I would absolutely recommend Adele's Creative Catering to anyone. Adele exceeds expectations on every front, and does so with a smile and a positive attitude. I just wish I could have another wedding for her to cater! :)

Adele's Creative Catering catered our wedding on 3/10/2018.  It was the most wonderful experience.  When we walked into the venue, the first thing we noticed was how beautifully the tables were decorated and set.  While we were having our pictures taken outside the venue, Adele...

Teresa...her name is not Adele according to her server....catered my daughters wedding this weekend. I was so upset and embarrassed about the slow service and how unorganized it was. First of all, we paid 5. more per head for a filet mignon carving station, which was not there.... Read More We were suppose to have a bunch of constant hot horsd'oeuvres with several servers. And a lot of cold appetizers for 58 people. We had 57 and there was in no way enough food for that many people. There was only 1 person walking around with a tray of about 12 appetizers every 30 minutes or so and there was certainly not an abundance of food as that is what she said she would provide. So many items we chose to be served were not even there. Then after waiting 2 hours in to the reception for the food....there were 3 bane maries with only a few of the items contracted to supply to our guest. Not to mention, no way like the tasting event. It was cold too and there was not enough plates and silverware nor were there enough glasses for drinks. The bar tender was washing glasses to give to others at the bar. I had a lot of complaints by many guest and I walked around during my daughters wedding, apologizing to our guest, as I was so upset and embarrassed. What we paid for we did not receive. I have never see anything like it and been to sooo many weddings. All to have this happen to us, was awful. This is one day in my daughters life and the way this event was catered by Adele was extremely disappointing and just distracted me so bad. I should have been able to enjoy the wedding but couldn't due to the catering fail that we experienced. I have so many people that are upset and witnessed this mess. She should refund at least half of what we paid, which was expensive especially for what we received. Sadly our guest left hungry and upset. I honestly am entertaining the suggestion by many for a civil suit.

I hired Adele in November to cater my wedding this past Friday. The food was good, but did not taste as well as the initial tasting. As soon as we arrived to our venue she pulled me aside to tell me there were 10 extra people at our reception. We had family members that did not... Read More show up, so we were actually short guests. I was appalled when I saw Adele walking around counting our guests. My brother watched as she mixed the salad with her bare hands. I asked for food to be put on the bar, that request was ignored. Adele forgot a few items of food on the contract as well as tables that were supposed to be provided by herself for the reception. A few of her staff were extremely rude. She seems very genuine and professional when you first meet, but your texts and request will go unanswered, she will remind you a week before you payment date if you decide to do a payment plan. All in all my night was amazing because of my guests and venue but I would choose another caterer

I would normally never leave a bad review but I have to let others know so they do NOT experience what our family did. The brides Mom after the tasting hosted by the caterer had raved about the food. She had been told they would be pleasantly surprised by the abundance of food... Read More and constant hot and cold appetizers. Sadly non of that ever happened. We waited sooooo long for food and there were only 3 kinds of hot butlered trays by 1 girl. The food was so little and everyone left hungry. There was suppose to be a lot of things that were promised on the contract and not given. Felt so bad for the brides mom as she was so upset walking around and apologizing for the long long wait for food and then to only get one small piece of meat, 1 ravioli and three of 4 string beans was unreal! Then the server when asked for more responded with you have to get back in line if you want another piece. So rude and there was not enough plates and forks and there was 57 people there counted by 10 different family members but the caterer said there was 65. She even told the bride and her mom during even she didn’t have enough plates or glasses. What a shame! For the price they paid it was not thing what they were promised in the contract. They should be refunded. It really messed up their event badly. I would never recommend

Wow! We were quest at a wedding reception catered by Adele. I hate to say, so incredibly sad for the bride and her family. It was to be a event catered with to a of cocktail party with an abundance of butlered and stationed foods. Paying what they did it was awful. The food... Read More tasted good if you even got to try anything. But there was salty filet mignon that was supposed to be a carving station with a sauce if wanted. Other hot items not given. It took hours to get anything and the staff...omg so rude. When some little bit of food was served, you were given on small piece of whatever little as there and when asking for more, told to go to the back of the line. The staff was rude and not professional whatsoever! I think the bride and her family should bring a lawsuit against this caterer. The brides parents were so horribly embarrassed and upset. They even said they paid extra for that non existent carving station and the supposed buttered h’ordorves! Such a shame!

When my father passed just weeks before the event, she was so sincere and patient with me;... Read More I couldn't ask for anything better. From the moment we had a tasting with her, we knew that she was the one! My menu consisted of lemonade, corn bread, teriyaki chicken skewers, filet mignon, shrimp cocktail, mashed potatoes, stuffed mushrooms, and a huge spread of cold appetizers (fresh fruit, meats and cheeses, crackers...). For dessert, we chose four types of her delicious cupcakes (Red Velvet, Strawberry Shortcake, Lemon, Chocolate-Dipped Caramel). Amazing! I had two guests arrive late, and Adele made up two gorgeous platters for them both to enjoy. I was blown away by that, and extremely grateful. A crowd favorite were the mashed potatoes. Indescribable! Adele and her team had everything taken care of when I arrived at the venue. Everyone was tidy, polite, and prompt, and Adele never ceases to amaze me. I whole-heartedly recommend her for any event!

Adele took our vision and made it a reality while helping us stay on budget.

Her crew set up and cleaned up the venue, leaving a normally anxious bride; calm, cool, and collected. The food was amazing! Our guests still rave about what a fabulous job they did and frequently try to come up with excuses to reuse Adele’s Creative Catering. Oh, and I won’t even get started on those cupcakes!

Adele is truly a genius, a professional, and a lovely person. During the stress of our wedding, my husband and I endured a grave family loss. We were planning a wedding and a funeral at the same time. Adele worked with us, even after we increased our guest list by over a... Read More third just weeks before the wedding! I was planning our wedding from out-of-state but she responded and adapted to our needs brilliantly. At our tasting, we were so in love with her cake samples! She gave us a (free) cake to take home with us. We shared it with family and they immediately began to place orders for individual cakes during the wedding! She and her staff were open, clean, and extremely professional. Her business is located in a residential area--that low overhead translates to better service for her customers. We had tender, delicious roast beef; lemon-pepper chicken, fresh (!!) green beans, rice; cream puffs. She also provided tasty, fresh vegan meals to our vegan guests. In addition to her buffet package, we also ordered water ice and pretzels to be served in the garden area of our reception venue. It gave a Philly flair to our out-of-town guests. She also had a small staff follow us (the bride and groom) around with snacks during the reception to make sure that we ate amidst all the hand-shaking and baby kissing. Our tablescapes were gorgeous and she used beautifully elegant plates and flatware. I can't say enough great things about her. Our guests are still praising the food (and we got married in August!!). If you're looking for a caterer in the Philly area, you will not be disappointed. In fact, you won't find a better service. Thank you, Adele!

So happy with Adele and her Crew !

"Don't worry, It's going to be wonderful", is one of the first things Adele said to me when my now husband and I decided to go with Adele's Creative Catering.

One of the things I liked best about Adele, is she told me it was not my job to worry about the catering, and that she would handle and coordinate everything. It was such a relief to hear her say "don't worry, I got it", because we planned our wedding from across the country and it got quite stressful. Adele was also very friendly and has a beautiful, warm, inviting smile which would make any bride feel realxed. Overall, I could not have asked for a better vendor.
