Loretta is amazing! She made our wedding happen. First: the food. We served the chicken with the creamy, tangy orange sauce, as well as the mushroom risotto, Greek salad, and mixed vegetables. The food was amazing, and my most discerning relative, who I will not name here, told... Read More me it was the best wedding food she had ever tasted. Heavenly also gifts you four servings of your wedding fare for your one month anniversary (with the stated goal of sharing with friends or family), and you had best believe we took it home and ate it all ourselves. My only regret is not stealing the mushroom risotto recipe. Heavenly's prices were better than their similarly well-reviewed competitors', but the service is what really won us over. Loretta treated us like family from the moment we sat down at her table. She was easy to get ahold of and extremely accommodating throughout. We must have gone back three different times to adjust our menu, and she was always happy to meet with us, samples ready. However, she won a place in our hearts two months out from the ceremony, when we lost our original venue. Construction at our first choice of venue had run long, and we found out two months prior to our date that we would be unable to hold our wedding there. After six hours of freaking out, calling venues around town, and finding that they were already booked or out of our price range, my wife, then fiancee, finally called Loretta to explain that we might need to adjust our contract. She should have called Loretta first. Loretta immediately explained that she/Heavenly Gourmet had just bought a venue, and that she thought she could make it work. It would be easy to take the cynical view and say that she capitalized on a business opportunity, but Loretta did so much more. I won't establish unfair expectations by betraying everything she did to make our wedding happen and happen perfectly, but I can confidently say that Loretta went well beyond what we could have expected of our caterer. Caterers all over create incredible food, and many do it for a reasonable price. However, only one of them does that AND has Loretta and her staff. I strongly recommend Heavenly Gourmet. These people saved our wedding and our sanity. We felt genuinely sorry to say goodbye to Heavenly and Loretta after everything was through.

I came to know HG when I worked at one of the venues they service. I learned immediately that they were the very best in the area. I have worked with many caterers at the venue and I have tasted plates from them all. HG's food was the best I have tried and they are the only... Read More caterer I have seen to have a quality checklist to be completed by their staff and signed off by the venue and client at every event. It ensures that they don't leave a mess of the place and end up getting the client charged. As a client, I think you tend to look at the prices and menu options and you don't even realize things like that. THEN, I got engaged. 7.5 month engagement, and THREE DAYS before my wedding our original dinner plans fell through. I immediately called HG thinking I couldn't afford them and that there was no way they could work a wedding with only three days notice. They were AMAZING. Let me choose whatever I wanted from the menu, and when I didn't like the first quote, they made some changes and managed to drop over $100 off the price! We already had a wait staff lined up and wanted to save some money on delivery, so we arranged for the food to be picked up and served by our own wait staff. The ONLY minor issue I found with HG was that the food pickup didn't come with instructions, so our chicken wound up sauceless and somewhat cold. This wouldn't be an issue with delivery since their staff knows what to do with their food, but we had our own people serving our food. Halfway through serving all of our guests, our wait staff came to us because they didn't know what the sauce was supposed to go on or how to heat it up correctly. In the future HG, please include heating and serving instructions for all pickup orders. As both a client and a venue staff worker, I would recommend Heavenly Gourmet to anyone looking for a classy plated meal for their event with delicious food and a company that is sure to do things the right way and save you money and stress.

Oh my goodness! This was the BEST food! Everyone was raving about how delicious it was. My uncle came up to me and said "I have never been to a wedding where I liked the food and this was amazing.

Heavenly Gourmet did a wonderful job at our wedding the food was just as expected. The portions were just right and the service was great and they were very accommodating. The guests were very satisfied. The staff if great and helped us along the way with several changes and... Read More tastings to ensure we had it all right, they even made sure to save us some of our appetizers that were served during our photo session. We did have a snafu with the linens being several hours late which shifted all other items throughout the day and ultimately made our ceremony late. However, they did make up for it by reimbursing our set up fee and a % of the cost. I would recommend them despite the mix up.

Though the food tasted excellent and they are normally professional, I felt they kind of dropped the ball for the wedding. My now husband was served last, the bar was closed way too early per our contract, and other things clearly noted and talked about were not done.

THERE ARE NO WORDS TO DESCRIBE HOW I FEEL ABOUT HEAVENLY GOURMET!!! From the moment we sat at our tasting till the moment they left the venue, they were knowledgable and very willing to help.

Just make sure you get a confirmation via email if you talk to someone different over the phone. I had the same conversation with several different people and I felt like I was losing my mind. Most people are really friendly...one is very rude. Overall, it's a really good value and great food. I would still use HG again for food, not for bar.
