s always responsive, she and her staff were very professional and kind and knew what they were doing. The food was delicious! I had so many people tell me they loved the food and wanted to know who did the catering. Several people told me it was the best reception food they had ever had. The Yankee Pot Roast was melt in your mouth amazing. Rhonda thought of everything we needed. I was a little anxious about the venue because we would be doing all the set up ourselves, including the floor plan. Rhonda made a floor plan and then we finalized it together. She came early to help with set up. We had a friend make all the deserts, and Rhonda helped me figure out what serving platters I would need, gave me a great discount to rent theirs instead of trying to piece together what I needed. Her staff set up the table and kept it stocked all night for me. We could not have had such a smooth wedding day without Rhonda and her crew. You cannot go wrong with Creative Cuisine. I would use them again in a heartbeat.

Creative Cuisine was absolutely fantastic and I am so happy we found them for our wedding. Below are a few high points that you may find helpful...
1) Throughout the course of planning our wedding I probably changed our quote 20 times. Samantha...
was so professional, kind, and genuinely happy to change things around to make everything exactly the way we wanted. Samantha was also very punctual and communicative, which put me more at ease and made things go quickly and smoothly.
2) During the wedding my mother threw a few curve-balls at Creative Cuisine and they didn't miss a beat. They were gracious, kind, handled everything to perfection, AND won over my mother, which is hard to do.
3) I greatly valued the professionalism and knowledge of catering that Creative Cuisine brought to the table. During our meeting, Samantha made suggestions that we hadn't thought of and added notes that would make our day run smoother.
4) All in all we rented table clothes and high-top bar tables, had bartender services for beer (kegs) and wine, and had Creative Cuisine cut the cake - there are so many other small things they did that's worth noting! But most importantly to note, they did everything seamlessly and exactly what we envisioned.
5) They are fantastic - why haven't you called them, yet?

We LOVE Creative Cuisine. Like so much that we got married two days ago and are already writing a review for them because we want everyone to know how great they are. First off, the food was incredible. I changed the vegetarian dish from what I...
decided after the tasting and hadn’t actually tasted it before the wedding. I was nervous about the change, but it was still incredibly delicious—and not a small portion like vegetarian dishes always seem to come in. My husband absolutely loved the chicken and steak entrees. Neither were dry nor undercooked. He said it was even good the next day. They have an excellent variety of food, which made it easy to meet different dietary restrictions. Our main contact, Rhonda, was so amazing. We went to our tasting in July 2018 and then in June 2019 she clearly remembered very small details that they weren’t really responsible for knowing. She made us feel very reassured every time we spoke with her. I didn’t ask for a ton of changes from our first proposal to our final details, but every time I asked for something she made updates in a very timely manner and knew exactly what I needed. I could tell that if I had asked for a ton of changes, she would have been just as patient and prompt as she was with the handful I made. There were a few times in the last few weeks running up to the wedding—when I had more stress than I knew what to do with and missed some details— when she very politely and with so much understanding pointed out discrepancies and asked for clarification without making me feel like I was putting her out or being dumb. We had a few very small but very last minute changes to guest counts and she was so flexible even though our final count had already been sent in (I’m sure this is also due in part because they were very small changes). We made a couple changes to the schedule during the wedding (moved the cake up about 30 minutes to keep things going a little better) and they were incredibly flexible and understanding and got the cake cut quickly. We had amazing vendors altogether, but these guys were by far our favorite.

Throughout the planning process my questions – no matter how specific or naïve – were treated with utmost kindness and promptness. In full disclosure I did have serious frustrations with Kimberly Frank as an event consultant – it was extremely difficult to fit in a word into the conversation, but more importantly she did not return emails or calls (it took over a month to get a requested document from her). However, I talked to the company’s management and I was immediately transferred to Jean Ransom who came to represent every other experience I had with the company: friendly, kind, professional, and beyond knowledgeable. Jean was completely accessible, which was especially comforting to me when the weather turned nasty the day before my outdoors reception! But the rain plan flowed wonderfully and without a worry. Creative Cuisine brought in bits of décor for the buffet tables to match my colors and the staff catered in a hundred detailed ways. The food was scrumptious and I’m enjoying reheating leftovers still! A thousand thanks to such a dedicated, deserving company and to Jean in particular.

h and has a wealth of knowledge, ideas, and experience; I don't think we could have pulled the wedding off without her! The venue we chose was a bit rustic and DIY, so Jean took it upon herself to measure the dimensions of the building, draw up her own seating schematics, and plan out the flow of the entire evening (which included flipping rooms). Everything was seamless, the layout was perfect, and the set-up (tables, linens, dinnerware, glasses, etc.) was gorgeous. The serving staff was highly professional and courteous, and no one was ever without food!
Speaking of food; Delicious. That's all there is to say! Jean really made a point of ensuring that the menu fit us and our venue, and now a month later we still have friends and family telling us how unique and delicious the appetizers, entrees, and sides were!
If you want a caterer that not only offers amazing food, but amazing ideas and support as well, you really should look into Creative Cuisine (and ask for Jean!).

I was lucky enough to get away before I got myself into deeper trouble with them. I met with Kimberly and she was very blunt. Which is fine if it wasn't about MFS Lauren Hill having shakey hands and talking crap about another catering companies...
. We are doing a 1920's theme and pizza was brought up?? No thank you. She went on to ask how we met and we couldn't even finish the story. But, I said well let's just book, so I signed the papers and gave my card number. They "accidentally" took the whole proposal bill out instead of the $500.00 that I authorized. If it wasn't for Shauna I would still (right as I'm typing this) would still have a Negative balance in my bank account. Kimberly then lied to her boss saying she gave me money and I owed her money back (not true). I'm sure their would have been so many more issues and lies as time would/ could have went on. I'm sure it would have been nice, I personally just wouldn't go with Kim.

n entirely blank canvas requiring more thought and effort to create the bride and groom’s vision for their big day which, in a word, was “classy”.
Top-notch food and service were high priorities for us. We took the advice of the wonderful Bryn Du staff and contacted three of the vendors who most frequently cater events there. Having never before hired a caterer, it was the biggest challenge we faced. Through phone calls and e-mails, the vendors were very helpful and assured us they would help us create the event we desired. Among all of them, Creative Cuisine stood out due to the effort of Kimberly Frank. She was the only planner who suggested we meet in person to discuss our event. Doing so made our decision that much easier.
With just two months to work through all of the details, Kimberly was on task from start to finish. With her extensive knowledge of the industry and outside vendor contacts, she was able to help us assemble a formidable team to pull it off. From designing the menu to securing linens, tables, chairs, draping and lighting, Kimberly was with us every step of the way. (Carol Krieg is the best wedding cake vendor ever! She makes beautiful AND delicious cakes and is such a pleasure to work with.) Our weekly meetings with Kimberly were very productive and left us feeling confident that we were on track to achieving our vision. All of our last-minute requests were handled with ease and assurance that everything would be accommodated. In total, this event was not an inexpensive undertaking, but Kimberly was instrumental in assuring that we were getting the best value for our dollar.
The day of the wedding was an absolute pleasure for us knowing Kimberly was in charge behind the scenes. Her attention to detail and meticulous execution were flawless. Our guests were wowed at every turn. Cocktail hour in the Mansion was a combination of refreshing beverages and delicious appetizers. (The polo match in progress on the front lawn was a fabulous freebie!) Dinner followed in the Fieldhouse which, with Kimberly’s assistance, was transformed from an empty shell to a glowing ballroom. The room was a vision of perfection. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed our dinner selections wonderfully executed by the chef. Everyone appreciated the attentive service of the staff. Our traditional cookie table was a highlight thanks to Kimberly’s thoughtful arrangement of our family’s baked goods. In all, no detail went unnoticed under Kimberly’s careful supervision.
The day ended with compliment after compliment from our guests. Many commented that it was the best, most beautiful wedding they had ever attended. Without the support and guidance of Creative Cuisine and Kimberly Frank in particular, we may not have been so successful. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

Frank of Creative. Now, my wife and I are both pretty OCD about stuff, and Kim saw this. She got right on our vision boat and started paddling. If we had any questions, either an email or a phone call. It's just like the old Spinners song, " whenever you call me, I'll be there," and Kim Frank was always there. No matter how big or little the question she answered it with great professionalism.
Now, it was crunch time too. With my work schedule, I never knew when I could help plan our day, that didn't matter to Kim, she made it work for us, staying late or meeting on weekends, she made it happen. She didn't make us work with her, she worked with us.
Now, the "Day" as I call it. Kim was at our venue, hustling and bustling around setting up our vision. Obviously, I did not see her for the rest of the morning. I didn't know how our vision would look. Even though I didn't see this, I knew Kim had it under control. As my new wife and walked in to our venue, it was more than I expected. Every little detail we had, every little thing was to perfection.
Last, the food, the most important part. We had an early reception, brunch as we call it. We had waffles, salads, bacon, egg strata, and more. Being it was so early, I was a little nervous of the service however, I shouldn't have been. All the servers and staff were pleasant, helpful, just down right the best I've ever seen. Kim Frank over saw the whole event, and didn't leave until everything was packed up.
All in all, great service, great food, great staff, and most importantly, a great event planner. On a scale of 1-10, the would get and 11! I would recommend her and Creative to anyone any day

It was clear she was just overloaded (she had four weddings including mine on my date). In the end it all worked out but I was glad I also hired a day of coordinator to make sure everything went as planned, especially since Terri was the only one I worked with at Creative Cuisine but had to manage several weddings that day. I liked working with Terri when I met with her in person but since I was planning my wedding remotely from NYC it was a bit stressful and challenging with the communication. The food turned out really well, we had the risotto bar and a buffet with chicken roulade, beef short ribs and vegetables. I would highly recommend the risotto bar - our guests loved it and it is good for kids and gluten free guests. In the end everything turned out really well but it was a bit stressful on the road to get there at times. Overall, I would recommend this vendor but would suggest working with a contact who has a bit more time to plan your day.

promised us everything under the stars to get our business. She went above and beyond, saying that she would be our wedding coordinator and take care of things start to finish.
We had some problems leading up to the wedding because our CC rep was hard to get ahold of and seemed somewhat distracted. However, once we were able to meet and hammer out the details, we felt comfortable the day would go well.
The day of the wedding, our rep had FIVE other weddings she was coordinating. She was distracted and did not do anything she promised. In fact, 30 minutes before the reception was about to start NOTHING was set up in terms of table decor, etc. so my bridesmaids had to do it. I will say that although she promised us for six months she would coordinate every detail of our wedding, I would have understood had that been the only thing that had gone wrong.
When the dinner for our outdoor wedding started, my husband and I were the first ones to be served. We walked up to the table and could not see anything because there were no lights, which (a few days prior to our event) our rep assured us we wouldn't need. When we sat down to eat only one minute after we were served our food, we notice it was cold. Let me say that one more time because its worth repeating. OUR FOOD WAS COLD from start to finish. We told the staff and they did nothing about it.
Later on a friend of mine came up to us and told us they ran out of food for the the last two tables. We had a mini burger bar and our rep assured us many, many times we would have plenty of food to go around. Again, I think it is worth it to point out twice that two whole tables at our wedding did not get food.
From start to finish the whole experience with Creative Cuisine was a disappointment. As I said before, we were promised the moon and stars and it was a disaster. They are a big company, and I'm sure they do tons of these events every single year. What they don't realize or don't care about is that they left a very ugly mark on the memory of our wedding.
I would suggest that you don’t give your business to a company that treats you like you don’t matter.

My fiancée and I have discussed our experience with Creative Cuisine and have decided to pass on their tasting, and frankly, our consideration to use them as a caterer for our wedding. There were multiple red flags that caused us some concern ...
as to whether Creative Cuisine would take our special day as importantly as we would expect from a vendor in a critical position to effect (negatively or positively) what very well could be the greatest day of our lives. The rationale behind our decision was as follows:
1)When soliciting proposals, and on those proposals, Shauna(the OWNER) repeatedly referred to me as "Tom", even after she and I had spoken and emailed a few times. No big deal on my end, but combined with some other things, made me question the attention to detail.
2)I was a bit irked that I had to call to confirm our taste testing
appointment... During our initial consult with Shauna on May 18th, she was going to get us some dates for the tasting in the upcoming days/weeks. I then had to email again to get those dates...when she said Friday the 11th was fine, I emailed her the time of 4:30 back on 5/27, and asked her to confirm. I didn't hear anything, so I decided to pick up the phone to call her, today, on June 7th. I realize that people do business differently, but my thought is that if I have to chase after someone just to give them my business, the questions that pop into my mind are what's going to happen during the collaboration phase after they have won my business? Will they be accessible when a problem crops up that needs immediate attention?
3)The tasting-during our initial consultation, there was another
entrée I wanted to try (vegetable lasagna), and was told that this company only serves 2 during the tasting. That may be policy, but not bending on that seems a bit petty, and a little nickel and diming during the sales process. I routinely take my clientele out to lunch and pick up the tab. In the process, I don't inform them of what they can and can't order. Sometimes I win the business, other times not; but I chalk those meals up to simply the cost of doing business, and write them off on my taxes. To elaborate a bit further, we were never informed that there was going to be a charge for the tasting; which makes me think that there is a possibility that we will unknowingly be charged for items that aren't incorporated on the proposal if we book Creative Cuisine for our event. Also, the fact that there is a charge makes the non-conformance to my request to try 3 entrees even more perplexing...
4)If Creative Cuisine was the only vendor available, then I'd likely be able to brush these concerns aside. The fact is that the competition-Vito's, Spagio, and Catering by Design, have all been more attentive and seemingly more interested in our business-this contrast probably artificially elevates the concerns we have, but nevertheless they exist enough for me to write you this message. Also, just so you know for your own competitiveness, the other three vendors offer complementary tastings. That stated, our cancellation is not solely due to the fact that there is a charge for the tasting...that is just one part of the overall picture.
It is because of these things that perhaps there is simply a disagreement on expectations that will prevent us from moving forward with Creative Cuisine.
