Bosc + Brie catered our wedding reception at the Cultural Arts Center and provided top notch service. Our venue was absolutely phenomenal, but is a public art space first and foremost and a venue second. With that, it has some quirks; set up af...
ter 3pm (since it’s open to the public until 4pm on Saturdays) and no on site kitchen/dumpsters make it difficult for a super diy-type wedding. We couldn’t have friends and family set up the night before, for example.
Enter Bosc+Brie. Their prices are reasonable ($25/head for simple/italian, $27 for one entre, $30 for two) and include set up, tear down, all linens and glasses, free cake-cutting services (even if you have a friend make your cake like i did), free use of decor items, a coordinator, and multiple tastings. Leah was incredible and patient and on the ball. I changed my mind often and had a lot of DIY elements and she rolled with it all, while gently offering things to think about that I hadn’t considered. She even drove to our B&B the morning of our wedding to pick things up for us...
The food was great! They made a special custom vegan dish and dairy free option for a guest w an allergy at no additional cost. All food costs something, and when you consider the value of the labor, there is no question that they’re worth it. By allowing you to buy your own alcohol, you’ll save thousands. We had short rib, salmon, brussels, and root veggie hash. It was a dream. We are still getting rave reviews, and about the catering specifically.
In sum: Bosc + Brie are attentive and kind, polished without being stuffy and inflexible. In a quiet moment, after giving his speech, and feeling overwhelmed with emotion, my dad walked by a server who gently said: “that was a really nice speech, sir.” It was a small thing, but it put him at ease in that vulnerable moment. Our day was perfect because of them.

I want to begin with Overall, the day was wonderful and I would still choose Bosc + Brie. Thank you to both Cynthia and Sue for making the transition smooth and I hardly had to worry about a thing.
When I started the wedding planning process...
Bosc + Brie was one of the first things I booked. I had read wonderful reviews about Cynthia and to my surprise I was set to work with Cynthia for my wedding. They were accommodating and easy to work with. Three weeks before my wedding, I was notified that Cynthia, the Wedding Coordinator, was leaving the company and I would be working with Sue for the rest of my engagement and the evening of the wedding. Sue was super helpful and let us set up the day before and helped us decorate and everything- it was so nice of her to meet up at weird times for us to drop stuff off (like late after work). However, there were a few details that though minor had a big impact. For example, no pen at the guest book table, I had to ask for favors to be set out when I noticed they weren't way after dinner was over, and when I looked over at the cake table, I noticed people were eating the cupcakes before we were to cut the cake. Though these things seem small they were things that impacted part of the day.
Our venue was the Jessing Center where Bosc +Brie are exclusive caterers. The facilities are wonderful. Clean and nice bathrooms, great open space that was perfect for our 130 guest wedding. I love that they allow you to supply your own alcohol and the food is good. They have plenty of options for food choice and room layout. We opted to rent the dance floor and I believe it was worth the extra money to do so. We also rented Chair covers and sashes through the venue which made it easy and seamless.

The food was delicious, and presented beautifully. There were no bad surprises, and the one great surprise of the day was how willing our contact was to step in throughout our event to make sure everything (not just cocktails/dinner) went smoothly!

First - I wish I could give Bosc & Brie more than 5 stars. From the first meeting with Marla at Bosc & Brie until the last moment of the wedding night, everything was perfection! I cannot thank Marla and her staff enough for the amazing service...
that they provided to me throughout the last few months. When things seemed to get crazy, Marla was there to be a voice of reason and help me figure out the little details. She went above and beyond what she was required to do. The food is AMAZING! We had the short rib and the chicken supreme with a lemon sauce. Everyone at the reception talked about how amazing the food was. The wedding and reception went off without a hitch. Marla was always available to answer any questions that I had and ensure that everything went perfect for my big day. I highly recommend any future brides to Bosc & Brie. They are amazing!!

First of all, we all look at pricing when it comes to the bottom line for events, especially for one as big as a wedding. Bosc & Brie offered the most incentive to book with them and STILL ended up being lower than the many caterers we met with in Columbus, Ohio! The package they offer is basically, unbeatable. Not only was the value of what was offered to us with Bosc & Brie a great investment but the quality of service we received by far exceeded our expectations. The food was PHENOMENAL! There wasn’t one person at our wedding who didn’t rave about it. What they raved about just as much as the food and setup was the Bosc & Brie catering staff. They loved them! Marla was our head caterer and she met with us numerous times. She was flexible and hospitable. She kept in contact with us as much as we needed. She not only pulled through with what we asked for, she went above and beyond and assisted in the design, setup and execution of our wedding! She coordinated with our rentals vendor on our behalf and really just made that day extra special. We requested a special dish that they did not have on their menu and they made it for us! We were just so happy with everything and with all that Marla had done, we would absolutely recommend Bosc & Brie for your wedding or future catering events. You really can’t go wrong.

In addition to great service, the food was equally amazing. The appetizers and our plated dinners were delicious and the guests raved about their food- especially the short rib! We had such a difficult time finalizing our menu only because everything we tried tasted really good, but luckily we were able to have several tastings to help make our decisions.

Let's start with the fact that I do not live in Columbus, and Sarah accommodated my family and I for a tasting at an awkward time on a Saturday while I was in town. She was so nice and the food was absolutely amazing. The chef Nick brought us the food himself. He was so knowledgeable and friendly and his food was amazing. He made great suggestions for the menu and provided excellent customer service by offering to customize anything to our taste.
The food was absolutely phenomenal and a great price too. There was a lot of food and everyone commented on how delicious it was. We had the summer salad (greens, strawberries, light dressing) and it was so refreshing. We then had the pork and beef tenderloins and they were so tender and tasty. The mashed potatoes were homemade and the green beens cooked to perfection. Can't stop praising the food.
Sarah was way more than just my caterer. She helped me plan, suggested vendors and helped me on so many other fronts. She came with me to the show room to pick my flatware, glassware, tablecloths etc and everything ended up looking amazing. She has a stock of extra decoration items that are so nice. She was very detailed in her communication, always had great advice and I just knew I could rely on her. She also did my flower centerpieces and they looked absolutely phenomenal.
Sarah saved my wedding dress the day before my wedding. My seamstress has completely messed up my bustle and bottom of my dress and Sarah went above and beyond to help me fix it and ensure things went smoothly. She stayed up all night to finish the last details for me. That is dedication and customer service. She is so nice to work with and was present at all times for the ceremony and reception to provide help and support. She even steamed my wedding dress for me. During the reception, she coordinated everything fantastically.
I could go on and on, but you get it - this company is amazing all around. I promise they will knock your socks off (and as a bride, you NEED that!).

them into using Mass Appeal Catering. However, I quickly realized the true work ethic of Sarah. The other reviews on this theknot.com/weddingchannel.com are the exact opposite experience we had with Sarah.
Not only is Sarah not easy to work with for event planning details, but she is also nearly impossible to reach for questions regarding details of said event. For example, Sarah took a trip to Argentina in April 2013 for several weeks. During this time, I emailed and called her to ask her a specific question regarding a question from a cake vendor. Sarah did not have an out of office voice message or automatic email reply and therefore after more than two weeks of no response, I assumed the absolute worst had happened. She claims to her father, the owner of the company, that she was returning emails and calls during this time but I did not receive any communication from her.
Furthermore, I asked Sarah if I could work with a different coordinator for the wedding reception because I was not impressed with her lack of communication or professionalism. Not only did Sarah not address my concern but she also took not action to better serve us as her client. My examples of poor customer service could continue further.In addition to the planning complications with Sarah, many items at our reception did not occur as requested.
In the end it was our family and friends that made our reception lots of fun, but working with Mass Appeal Catering, specifically Sarah Selhorst was the biggest stress of our wedding planning process.

She is very sweet, thoughtful, hard-working and will do anything to make you feel happy and comfortable with your reception.
Third, the food was FABULOUS. We opted to have four food stations, a salad station, pasta station (they make it for your guests right in front of them!), potato bar (people LOVED this) and a prime rib carving station (it was delicious and perfectly prepared). I did not expect the food to be so tasty, but we had compliments all night on how truly delicious everything was. Personally, my husband and I loved the prime rib - it was a huge hit.
Fourth, the cost of the reception cannot be matched. For such high quality service, I would have expected to pay much, much more. Mass Appeal worked within our budget to create a menu that was worth much more than what we paid! It was a tremendous value. My husband, who paid for a majority of our wedding was thrilled with the prices and the quality of the food and service.

Sarah and her assistant Cynthia snuck inside my head and got my vision on how I wanted the reception to look! It was beyond my expectations! Everything was so perfect! When it came to dinner everyone was raving about how wonderful the food was! My sister (maid of honor) is a vegetarian and they provided a fish dinner for her and she said that it was probably one of the best meals she had in a long time. A lot of guests were pleased with how quick the wait staff was with refilling drinks and removing plates. Many enjoyed the fact that they felt like a priority and they thoroughly enjoyed the service the staff provided.
I highly recommend Mass Appeal Dining. They take care of you from the very beginning and make sure that your day is everything you wanted it to be! Sarah was a God send the entire time, especially the week leading up to the wedding. She is amazing and her staff is wonderful!

I used Mass Appeal for my catering and they were fantastic! I worked mostly with Ashley but Kate is great too! They acted as a wedding coordinator as well as caterer! Ashley is so friendly and helpful with endless patience for my many (many)...
questions. They coordinated with all of the vendors for deliveries so I did not even have to think about that! They went over everything with me to make sure that the reception went smoothly. The food was excellent! I heard from several guests that it was the best wedding food they had ever tasted:) Oh and they also helped me develop my centerpeices and put them all together for me!!! Such a HUGE help!

My experience with Mass Appeal was amazing. I had no idea my wedding reception could possibly have looked THAT beautiful. I'll never forget seeing my (new) husband's jaw literally drop when he saw the way Sarah set up our reception. Mass Appeal...
is the best vendor you can go to.
I can only write the most glowing, heartfelt review. Dealing with Mass Appeal was amazing. Sarah is so empathetic--and so good at her job. When I was stressed about the wedding, she helped me realize that everything was going to be okay. Ashley at Mass Appeal is also INCREDIBLE and incredibly helpful. I can't tell you how many times my mom said "Thank God for Sarah..." The food at the reception was excellent, and Mass Appeal goes above and beyond the call of duty.

The meal at a wedding is something that people always talk about. The good news is our guests are still talking about how amazing our food was. Sarah and the staff at Mass Appeal are incredible. They helped to customize a menu that was memor...
able. They even made a special plate for a loctose allergy. We had a sit down dinner of filet, garlic mashed potatoes, honey mustard pork tenderloin, and honey glazed carrots. I want to eat it all over again. We also had a nacho bar brought out around 10:00pm. The appatizers were wonderful too and we customized a salad. Sarah was also like a wedding coordinator. She helped with a ton of questions not related to catering and made sure the whole day ran smoothly. Mass Appeal helped make our day memorable.

I absolutely loved Mass Appeal! We decided to go with the stations and we received compliments on the food from almost everyone. The pasta station was so cool because you got to pick the pasta, sauce and meats you wanted and then they cooked it...
right in front of you. Sarah was an absolute joy to work with and I couldn't have asked for a better cater who was so responsive and helped to take the stress away from me. Also as an added bonus at no extra charge, was the fact that I was able to use their center pieces (tealight candles, round table mirrors, and little crystal jewels) which helped to save me money. I thought the night went absolutely smooth and Sarah even packed us a "to-go" bag for us to eat after the wedding which totally saved us (no matter how many people tell you to make sure you eat at the wedding, there is always someone constantly talking to you and you really have no time to eat). I would recommend Mass Appeal to anyone!

Ok. I have mixed feelings about this vendor. Our wedding day went very well. The reception was exactly what we wanted and we didn't have any problems that day. We did, however, have problems before the wedding day.
My father and stepmother...
(who paid for an incredibly high percentage of the wedding) live out of state. We wanted to have a tasting with them so that they could taste the food we were planning on having at the reception. I discussed this with the catering manager and we planned a date for it. After setting the date for the private tasting, my parents scheduled plane tickets and re-worked work schedules so that they would be in town for said tasting. We also planned a few other appointments with vendors around the same time so that we could make good use of our time.
Leading up to the tasting, I discussed with the catering manager what the menu for the tasting would be. When we initially talked about the tasting, she gave us no limits on what we could try. There was no specific number given to us. We were told to let them know what we wanted to taste and they would make it happen. I sent her the list of items we wanted to try at the tasting and was quickly told that the list I gave her was far too much for a private tasting. We ended up paring the menu down to about half of what we originally wanted to try.
I am not an unreasonable person. If I had been given a guideline on the amount of food they would like us to try at the tasting, I would have worked within that guideline. Instead, a menu was presented and shot down (with a bit of snootiness and attitude, I might add).
Well, this is all kind of a moot point, as the tasting never happened. We (me, my then fiancee, and my parents who had flown in for this specific meeting) went to the catering hall and were prompt, early even! And were greeted by an empty building. The catering manager never put our tasting on the company's calendar and hadn't bothered to inform the staff that there was a tasting scheduled for that day. They tried really hard to make up for it... the owner of the company came to the venue and gave us a tour and tried to soothe my father's rising temper. We were all very close to going to our next pick venue and writing a check. They did give us a few things for free: They offered us a couple gratis appetizers at the reception and allowed us to use the upgraded dance floor free of charge. But nothing really took away the bad taste I had in my mouth for them...
I am sure this is not what happened, but this is how I felt: With all the issues we had while discussing the menu for the tasting and all the back and forth conversations which included attitude, I really felt like the catering manager just didn't want the tasting to happen. It was one of those things that when we showed up and no one was there I said to myself "Of COURSE there's no one here. That's just effing perfect!"
So yeah... the wedding day was beautiful and they made for us what we wanted...but it was not without huge hurtles along the way and lots of pushing.

Easy to get a hold of and work with, flexible pricing if you book early. Sarah was very personable and enjoyable to work with which made for a seamless reception. I made sure she went through my mom with any issues on the wedding day so I did...
n't have to think about it and it worked out perfectly! Although my nerves got the best of me so I didn't eat much at the reception, everyone said the food was wonderful (not just those trying to keep me calm:).
