Delectables did a sit down dinner for my daughters wedding. It was amazing. The salads were crisp and fresh with wonderful dressing. We served beef and chicken and both were fabulous. Duchess Potatoes and vegetables and rolls rounded out this 5 star meal. It was not your... Read More typical wedding food. It truly was outstanding. We also had an open bar and it was first class and for what we got I found the pricing fair and reasonable. Then you get to the service. From first contact to the last fork being put down at the reception, it was wonderful. The servers were attentive and friendly and could not have been nicer or most efficient. The bartender was amazing . The whole set up of the plates and forks, butter and water were gorgeous and added so much to the ambience of the wedding. In short, I would recommend Delectables for any event. They are amazing to work with, efficient and kind. The food Is top shelf as is the service. Outstanding Delectables and thanks so much for an amazing wedding.

Delectables Catering was simply amazing in every way - from dealing with my confusion during the initial planning, to the friendly support I received moving forward, and ending with the most incredible food & presentation that you could ever wish for ! Michele, my contact for... Read More planning the catering for my daughter's wedding, was fantastic to work with; this was the first time I had ever planned a catered event, and this was a big one - nearly 200 people to feed ! She was very patient, answering all of my questions and making sure that I was satisfied with our choices; she really went out of her way to help in any way that she could, even going so far as to meet with one of my daughter's friends off-site so that we could get the table linens ahead of time for staging the centerpieces with our florist. Then, all of my carefully planned set up ideas for the reception were changed at the last minute due to rain and alterations in table/seating arrangements, but the catering captain and his staff took all of the confusion in stride, working hard to make sure that everything was just perfect. The guests were really impressed with the custom guitar ice sculpture that was included - so COOL - and the presentation of the buffet was beautiful. Lastly, the FOOD was OUTSTANDING - we received endless compliments on the food, with my dad even telling me that it was the best prime rib he had ever had - and he is a really big prime rib fan, so that is a huge statement, coming from him! I have NO complaints and nothing but the highest praise for the team at Delectables and would recommend them without reservation for any type of catered event.

I've been looking for a caterer for my wedding and I ran into a ex employee of delectables. I had asked him about delectables he said I should definitely look elsewhere. Apparently even though they have numerous no shows that attend their events the client is still charged for... Read More the nonexistent staff (even that persons gratuity that the servers split between the kitchen, owner, and so forth so lessening what you believe to be tipping a more than adequate staff. On top of the lousy way they treat there staff and rob their clients they always tell the staff to bring back to the shop any remaining food that you have paid for. I found this to be extremely disqusting of how this business treated this man whom I know personally to be quite a hardworker so If I were you I'd look elsewhere and if you are already booked with them, Sorry but count your staff and watch your bill!

I am beyond happy with the food and service we got from Delectables for our wedding reception, and our guests are still raving about the food a month later! The appetizers and meal were absolutely delicious! And the price for everything just can't be beat. We also added the ice... Read More cream sundae bar and the gourmet coffee bar and everyone LOVED both! Plus, from start to finish, their service was amazing. Throughout the planning process, Michele Whitaker took the time to meet with us, help us finalize the menu, plan out the day, and made us feel like we were her only customers/main focus, even though I'm sure they always have tons of events going on. At the wedding reception, the servers were all professional and efficient, and really made sure the guests were all well taken care of. They even saved two small plates of appetizers for us since they knew we wouldn't get the chance to eat any by the time we arrived. Throughout the entire day I was so impressed with their level of service and attention to detail, and the food was absolutely perfect. I can't say enough good things about them. Highly recommend!!!

The food was amazing, Janice was amazing and went above and beyond what was asked of her. They are easy to work with and are there to make your special day everything you hope it will be. I did have a server or two use my photo booth, which in my opinion is not only tacky,... Read More but unacceptable. They are being paid to do a job, not take time away from the booth where my guest could be using it. The photo booth company I used you get a copy of each photo printed, so there is proof. Overall, there are no complaints with the company itself, it was amazing. :)

I can't rave enough about Delectables. I was a little worried at first because I selected them based only on reviews as I am not in the area.

I honestly wish my dress didn't fit so tightly so that I could have had more to eat. They also wrapped up all the leftovers to take home.

Even my father and my guests kept commenting on how polite, easy going, and friendly they were. They were all smiles throughout the night! Bottom line, my package deal with them was a steal price wise for the quality of the food the amount--considering it included both appetizers and the cake--, and for the overall experience.

The food was simply amazing. We did a cocktail hour with a sushi station and a stations buffet for dinner. The displays were spectacular (they even used our wedding colors and listened to the feel of our wedding). The staff was friendly and helpful during the event. Our... Read More guests are still raving about the food. This was by far the most reasonably priced caterer in Tampa Bay, especially for the type of buffet we wanted and the quality of the food. The BAR- Don't use their catering company that they are affiliated with!!!!!!! The bar does not have an attachment, so they literally set up the bar on a low table with everything, including trash, exposed. It took an elegant, 5 star event to the trailer park. If you book the china package, it does not transfer over to the bar package. Be careful when booking.
