Where to even begin…my fiancé and I booked our wedding with the Museum of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg where Olympia is the official catering partner. We booked the venue because we were in love with the setting. Little did we know that we would find one of the best catering companies in Tampa Bay by doing so! We worked closely with Nancy Cotto who was very helpful in giving us all of the information we needed and providing timely answers to our questions throughout the wedding planning process. She was so quick to respond each time we had an inquiry and this was absolutely invaluable. The food was absolutely delicious and our guests raved about everything from the appetizers to the late-night snack! We chose a set plated menu including steak and mahi-mahi for the dinner at our wedding. The meals came out on time and were very well prepared and presented. I wanted to specifically mention Olympia’s incredible team as a whole. The team that worked our event was beyond professional and accommodating and they worked together to make our event spectacular. We were more impressed by them than anything else. The banquet captain was Tata, whose hard work and leadership made our evening seamless. The Olympia bakery made our wedding cake, which was one of the best I’ve ever tasted. We met with Debbie, the cake specialist, to choose our flavors (they had quite the selection available) and design our cake. We went with a simple white three-layer cake which our florist decorated with fresh flowers, but I saw many options from this bakery and there doesn’t seem to be much they can’t do. We loved our cake! Overall, we had nothing but the best impressions during and after our event. A wedding is one of the biggest and most important days in a couple's life and Olympia clearly acknowledges that and treats your big day like it is the biggest event of theirs as well, making sure each detail is taken care of to perfection. This is what really stood out with this group and everyone at the Museum of Fine Arts for us!
I've had this food at a few events and they are the sole caterer at the venue we chose. Lucky us! Their food is excellent and guests had good things to say. We were able to have a tasting ahead of time and it was difficult to choose because everything was good. We did not have any special requests but they were open to accommodating if so. My only recommendation would be if you are having a buffet to see if the salad could be plated separately or on the tables ahead of dinner. We did not know the salad would be ON the buffet, and the greens were strangely warm from being plated with the hot food and there wasn't much room on the plate. Not enough of an issue to take away any credit for how great the food was overall!
We were required to use Olympia catering per our venue's request, but that doesn't not mean by any means that we settled for them. As soon as we began discussing menu options with Olympia, they truly stepped up to the plate. Our wedding was a fusion (Indian-Western) wedding, and we wanted to be able to translate that into the food options for our guests. Olympia's chef created not only an Indian vegetarian entree option for our guests, but also a couple veggie appetizers as well! While they provided us with a couple options, we were able to choose a few and actually taste them at our tasting and make suggestions. My family loved the option of having some of their favorite foods, with a twist! Additionally, our catering captain introduced herself before the wedding, to reassure us that everything was going to go alright. From the tasting, we were pretty clear that we wanted to have a couple of appetizers set aside for the bride, groom, and the bridal party, in case they were missed during the cocktail hour. Luckily, they weren't, but our catering captain took special care to make sure that we still had one of everything on our sweetheart table for dinner. She even brought us our signature drinks immediately after the wedding, so we could toast with the bridal party. From our perspective, bride and groom, the reception went seamlessly. However, my mother stated that a couple of her relatives had their entrees mixed up, but no one complained directly to me, so it probably wasn't a big deal (Probably cause all of our choices were fantastic). Additionally, there was a plate that was dropped while everyone was eating, but they cleaned it up so quickly, it didn't even seem like it happened! We, personally, did not use the day of coordinator from Olympia because we hired our own wedding planner/coordinator. We found that everything exceeded our expectations, except for a couple snags, they were great addition to our wedding day!
Nancy, you are a true angel!! As soon as we met, I knew you were the one who understood exactly what we wanted and what we needed! You really made our day special and we are forever grateful to you!! Thank you for EVERYTHING you’ve done for Dane and me. We love you!!!
I got married a couple weeks ago in Treasure Island, Florida, and my husband and I selected Olympia catering for our food service and our wedding cake. Sherri Salsbury was our personal representative who took care of us from our tasting appointment, throughout our year of planning, up to the day of our wedding. She was so helpful in answering all our questions and ensuring that our priorities were executed. She returned every email and phone call throughout the year with excellent service and intention to help us plan our wedding dinner service. She exhibited great attention to our details, and asked lots of questions to understand all other aspects of our wedding - down to our colors, favors, and venue set-up. We did not get to see or work with Sherri on the day of the event, but she passed along all the info to the catering team who served us. On the day of and still to this day, our guests have be constantly raving to us about how delicious our cocktail hour passed hors d’oeuvres and reception dinner service was! The only issue we encountered was that our dinner service was slightly delayed as the time they had down for serving was 45 minutes later than what Sherri and I discussed/planned for in our timeline. Nevertheless, when I brought this issue up after I found out about it following the ceremony, the person who was in charge of the catering team immediately assured me that she would fix it and not to worry. We used the extra time to mingle with our guests and within 15 minutes our dinner service began seamlessly. Our food was delicious and best of all, the steak was cooked perfectly to medium rare as I requested! The catering team cooked a fabulous meal and took care of my guests. They offered to place party favors, pour champagne, and cut the cake within their provided services. Despite the one timing hiccup that occurred, this company and staff handled it without skipping a beat and we were back on track to enjoying a delicious meal before enjoying the dance floor. Thank you to Sherri for helping me plan all of this and thank you to the team who executed it all! Debbie Aaron in the bakery personally took care of us from the time of our cake tasting session, emailing back and forth with us throughout the planning process, up to baking/decorating the most beautiful cake for our wedding! I could not stop visiting my cake table to gawk at my cake throughout my whole reception, and even now I’m going through my photos feeling so in love with my gorgeous cake! Did I mention it was absolutely delicious? Debbie made it easy to make our decisions, I sent her two separate cake images from Pinterest showing her that I wanted the colors from one pic and the texture/design from the other one… and she NAILED IT!!!! Thank you so much for perfecting this unforgettable piece of our wedding day, you brought the beach onto our cake and everyone loved it!
If I could give 10 stars I would! Nancy took such good care of us during the entire wedding planning process. She made the most amazing recommendations for all aspects of my daughters wedding. We trusted all of her suggestions when it came to our choices with the menu and she was spot on. People were raving about the appetizers and their meal. Olympia Catering provided amazing food. Nancy was always prompt in answering any question we would have. I also highly recommend using Nancy and her team as your day of coordinator. We didn’t worry about our timeline at all. They were there to guide us every step of the way. They made sure that the bride and groom were well taken care of the entire night. It was a most magical experience!!!
Best. Food. Ever! Not to mention the service was outstanding! We even had a special cake design to match my dress without the groom catching on :) Our guests still rave about how good the food was. I actually first had their food at a friend's wedding and knew I wanted to hire them for mine. Donna was professional and accommodating and familiar with our venue. She was lifesaver when it came to communicating with our others vendors to ensure everything ran as smoothly as possible. I could seriously write a book about how pleased we were with them. From the tastings, to the special ordered linens, china, matching chargers, to the cake. Highly, highly recommend Olympia!
Olympia is so fantastic to work with. They do a personal tasting for both food and cake. The offerings are superb and the taste is fabulous! They were easy to work with and accommodated all our special needs. Highly recommend!
Not only was Olympia easy to work with, but they did everything 100%. I worked closely with Nancy Cotto to nail down my menu. We were given the royal treatment during the food tasting-- and I was delighted to learn they do late night snacks in addition to their extensive menu. I had a separate appointment with Debbie to discuss the cake. We were able to try our choices for a second time as we browsed cake designs. She listened to me word for word, as the cake turned into my vision completely! I would recommend Olympia to any future brides :)
Working with Nancy was such an immense pleasure. The tasting was fun and intimate (nothing like those giant group tastings you find some places). The food exceeded my expectations and on our wedding day all the guests commented on the delicious meal! The food was prompt for our guests and each course was hot and plated beautifully. Debbie, who we worked with for our cake, did a beautiful job! We brought a photo for inspiration and my expectations were exceeded again on our wedding day; the cake was so much better than the photo and it tasted great! Such a success and I would recommend Olympia to anyone!
Olympia Catering is simply the best! From our food tasting, to our cake tasting, to the wedding day, everything was fantastic! The food at our wedding was absolutely delicious and fresh! Our guests complemented the catering and how scrumptious everything was! Our cake was absolutely stunning and the flavors were awesome! Sherri and Debbie were such a pleasure to work with. They accommodated all of our needs and were so friendly and professional.
Olympia Catering did a phenomenal job on the food and cake at our wedding! Everyone commented on how amazing the food was which is such a relief to hear because it's a main part of the reception. I wish that my husband and I had more of an appetite the day of so we could actually try it all. I worked with Sherri to set up our menu and go through the tastings. She was extremely nice and helpful. My only complaint would be that most of our guests said that they did not even get a piece of the cake (which was delicious btw). They did not pass it out and simply set slices on the buffet table in the back of the room. I didn't even notice it was back there until the end of the night. I was disappointed that we paid for a cake the our guests didn't get to enjoy. Just a tip to make sure people get a piece because it really is one of the best cakes!
Olympia Catering was the exclusive vendor for the MFA in St. Petersburg. Nancy was very nice in our first meeting and to my knowledge, was responsive with our wedding planner. The food tasting was amazing! My husband and I were blown away! The day of, the food was still awesome but nothing compares to that tasting! We also worked with Olympia for our wedding cake. Debbie was very nice and even though I didn't get to taste the cake, my husband raved about how delicious it was. They could not accommodate my request for a gluten free tier, but our guests said the cake was great! The cake was beautiful, and with some added flowers from our florist, it was just what I envisioned! Day of, the service was impeccable! The banquet servers were professional and kept everything in order! I would recommend them for sure!
Nancy was amazing! She answered all my questions and then some. The food was amazing and the staff was very nice and professional. Only thing I would state is that, you don't get your leftovers. We had some people not show up to the wedding, and we had ordered them meals, at the end of the night, they told my wedding planner that all the meals where served, which in fact was not true.
They were wonderful. The food was amazing! We chose stations for our wedding and every option was delicious (beef, seafood pasta, fajitas, cold seafood). Everyone at our wedding said "this food is the best!" Highly recommend!
Working with Donna Aguis was an absolute pleasure! From the moment my husband and I arrived at the first tasting, I knew there was something special about Olympia Catering. The staff was friendly and Donna proved to be very knowledgable of the menu options. I think I bonded so well with Donna because she is very organized and detailed (like myself lol)! Once we tried the delicious food and learned that the wedding cake was included with the catering, we were sold! It was such a relief to have the cake included and to not worry about hiring another vendor. The cake designer, Debbie, was also wonderful to work with! She was prompt in responding to emails and very helpful in designing our beautiful cake. I showed Debbie pictures of cake designs and also requested a special icing flavor that was not offered on the menu. Our flavors were white chocolate icing with white cake and a chocolate raspberry filling. Debbie provided a sample mini cake with our flavors to ensure we liked the flavors before the wedding. Debbie and her team made the most beautiful and delicious wedding cake I have ever seen and tasted! For our food, we selected four passed hors d'oeuvres and the buffet option with two entrees. On the day of our wedding, our guest kept complimenting us on the food throughout the evening! To this day, I'm still receiving compliments about how awesome our food and cake tasted. I really appreciated Donna's efforts in staying within our budget and providing surprise gifts the day of our wedding! If you are looking for high quality food and work with amazing people, go with Olympia Catering. Donna, thanks again for making our day wonderful!!!
Olympia Catering and Donna Aguis were an absolute dream to work with and made my wedding day perfect and stress free. From start to finish, Donna went above and beyond answering questions and getting me get to a price point I was comfortable with, and she was beyond patient guiding me on selecting the perfect menu for our guests. OUR GUESTS RAVED about the food and service. Olympia was extremely accommodating with our gluten free, dairy free and vegetarians too. Donna made the whole process easy, especially when I realized I would need linens at the 11th hour, she kept it stress free. She even helped me select certain parts of my centerpieces when I couldn't decide and helped me find options. By the time my wedding day came I had such confidence in her, I told her to use her judgement on what to do with certain decorations, sign in, and cake tables- and they looked perfect. The decor they provided on the coffee bar and buffet was stunning and was a complete delight/surprise. My cake was picture perfect and exactly like the photo I provided. The staff was so attentive for my groom and I with drinks and food, neither of us were ever taken away from each other or our guests. If you are looking for an amazing caterer who will take care of everything, HIGHLY recommend Olympia and Donna. Worth every single penny. I still have people talking about how great they were. The devil is in the details, I am so grateful while working full time and traveling non-stop while planning a wedding, I had someone who I could trust to not miss and guide me through every one of them. Thank you Donna and Olympia!
Olympia Catering provided exceptional service for our event. The event coordinator, Donna Aguis, was a pleasure to work with and organized a superior catering service. The on-site team was right on-point! They prepared very tasty hors d'oeuvre and set-up beautiful food and floral presentations. You couldn't tell the event was catered after their thorough clean-up.
Olympia Catering is wonderful and I highly recommend them! Sherri was very helpful as I worked to plan my daughters wedding. The service was excellent and the everyone talked about how great the food was. Though they were the contracted provided with the venue we chose, if I could do it all again - I would definitely choose them again. You won't be disappointed.
Olympia was the caterer that was contracted with our venue, but if given the choice, I'd choose them a thousand times over. Our servers were so thoughtful-- a woman even brought my husband his own serving of seafood from the raw bar. The raw bar had been what he was most excited about, and they wanted to make sure he'd gotten enough. That is above and beyond. Most importantly, the food was absolutely delicious. The steak was the quality of a prime steakhouse, and the fish was also top-notch. And the cake was so good, my husband wants to order one for our anniversary.
Where to begin?! We knew from the beginning that we wanted our wedding venue to be the Museum of Fine Arts in Downtown St. Pete - we expected it to be good but never in a million years expected the insane level of service and love we received from MFA staff, Olympia Catering, Bar by Lundys, Everence Photography, Wonderland Floral Art, Style Hair and Makeup, Courtesy Valet and Graingertainment. We were especially lucky that we made the decision to hire Nancy Cotto, from Olympia Catering working exclusively for the museum, as our day of coordinator. She was absolutely amazing and went completely above and beyond our expectations. Nancy kept a constant open line of communication up until the day of the wedding and totally exceeded our expectations when it came to our wedding day - some items were even a special surprise that she arranged to make our day extra awesome! The food from Olympia was delicious! And not only was our cake the most gorgeous cake ever, we received many compliments as to how good it tasted. We couldn't be more blessed to have the most amazing vendors as a part of our day - thank you a million times over for everything!!!! -Kim and Rob Schultz

Olympia Catering was excellent! For our wedding, we decided on having the dual entree plated dinner. We received so many compliments telling us it was the best wedding food everyone has ever tasted. The banquet manager was amazing. She was very attentive and always made sure the groom and I had everything we needed at all times. I would definitely recommend Olympia Catering for your wedding - they were great.
Olympia Catering is FANTASTIC!Reviewed on 12/07/2015
My daughter and I would highly recommend Olympia catering. Taryn was amazing to work with and was so helpful during this whole process! The food and desserts were delicious and everyone who attended agreed! Taryn ensured that the staff onsite took care of all my needs as well as all of our guests.
My husband, Andrew and I had our wedding at the Kapok Special Events on 10/18/2015 and we were VERY satisfied with Olympia Catering and their amazing cake maker Debbie Aaron . From the start Sheri was prompt to answer all of our questions throughout the whole process. She was extremely personable and easy to talk to. I was really impressed on how Debbie was able to reflect the EXACT vision I was wanting for my wedding cake and how quickly she would respond to reassure me that the cake was going to be perfect. DEBBIE WAS RIGHT!! Everything was GORGEOUS because of this talented woman!! The cake was even BETTER then I could have imagined. Debbie knows exactly what each of her Brides need and want on the most important day of their lives. The food selection and quality that Olympia has to offer was OUTSTANDING!! Not to mention, the catering service itself was fantastic as well. The team was on top of everything and right on schedule. That being said, Andrew and I HIGHLY recommend Olympia Catering & Events to any couple who is finding themselves sifting through all the Catering Companies out there offering their services......ESPECIALLY if you are looking for quality food and service. I PROMISE that you will be VERY pleased with Olympia Catering & Events and their cake maker Debbie Aaron, as your caterer and the beautiful cake that Debbie creates. As the Bride, I felt very grateful and blessed to have found this company because they are TRULY AMAZING!! :0)
Olympia Catering did an amazing job at our recent wedding with both the Wedding Cake and the Grooms Cake! I worked directly with Debbie and she has clearly been there for years and has invaluable experience with cakes, events, and weddings. We had a tasting that included my Mother and Grandmother, as well as several other meetings where we pored over Pinterest pictures and tweaked my ideas into a beautiful finished product. She was great about guiding us in design, color, and overall aesthetic of our cake and it came out wonderful! The flavors of the cake and filling were of great quality, the icing was delicious (as opposed to the fake sugar taste of fondant,) and the designs were exactly what I pictured. The cake design was elegant and we were also able to rent the perfect cake stand from Olympia. It was like one that I had seen in a magazine and couldn't find anywhere else. Because of such a great experience planning our Wedding Cake there, I decided to use them for the Grooms Cake as well. There were no additional delivery fees for the 2nd cake, the cost of the cake was nominal, and the cake came out amazing! It was in the shape of an Xbox One game controller with a nutella and chocolate filling. My husband was pleasantly surprised when he saw and tasted it. I would highly recommend Olympia for their wide range of knowledge and experience with Wedding Cakes. You can rest easy knowing that it will be of great quality and your guests will love it!
