m is out of their 4 hour travel limit, and they were canceling my event that is 51 days away.
Nina and Michelle said they’ve exhausted all options to try to figure it out without any choices and I would “have to figure it out.”
Called to receive a refund, to which they said they’d have to send a release in the mail and get that back before they’d mail the check but we paid with Venmo and requested to be paid back that way to which they refused.
Very unprofessional, no compassion that they’ve backed out in the contract less than 60 days from the event and now are saying we will get our money sometime and if we show up to the office to get the check we won’t be given our money back. HIGHLY DO NOT RECOMMEND!!!!!

Best word to describe this vendor is disappointing. They did not deliver on what they told us during our tasting. Not only was there not enough food for all our guests (and we had many people cancel their invites right before the wedding who we...
had accounted for), but my guests actually described the food as “cheap.” We also used this caterer for our rehearsal dinner and THE FOOD NEVER SHOWED UP. They had to order from a local restaurant and had my guests waiting TWO HOURS after the allotted start time for food that wasn’t even theirs. Would not recommend for catering.

We were very excited to have booked this venue for our May 1, 2020 wedding. We loved the great downtown location, even if the venue itself was a little shabby (it needs a new coat of paint, and the carpet is frayed). Despite that, it had a beau...
tiful view and was within our budget. We also decided to go with their catering services because they charge a fee for outside catering (even though they will tell you that they allow it without mentioning the fee). So we felt we had to use their full services, which was frustrating, but we had paid for the venue by the time we found out about the fee and decided to continue with their services.
However, as our wedding approached, we realized we would not be able to have our wedding due to the spreading global pandemic.
This was a hard time for us, so we contacted Kress to see what their plan was,but they didn't have one. I called to ask questions to get a game plan together (we had paid in full at this point and I was wondering what downsizing our wedding would look like and ask a few other questions), but the woman I talked to ended up yelling at me and hanging up on me. After that, no one would talk to me and all correspondence was through email, which they do take several days to respond and never quite answer your questions. They offered to move our wedding, but we couldn't move the date, due to our personal situation and how far we have to travel for the wedding (we -now- live 15 hours from GSO).
They basically said they didn't care and would not refund us any of the money. We tried to work with them for a partial refund, considering we had paid in full, but they flat out said no. We understand that this is a hard time for everyone, but they wouldn't even try to be flexible and didn't even pretend to care about our situation. Also, they didn't care about the pandemic and were planning to host a wedding for a couple hundred people until the government said they couldn't. For a wedding company, the lack of compassion I felt during this time for me and the community was incredibly disheartening. We ended up having to take legal action against them to get some of the money we paid for a service they couldn't fulfill.
If you want a cheap location downtown, this is it, but don't expect good customer service, quick responses, and please please please don't pay in full, because even an act of god won't entitle you to any kind of refund.

We loved our experience working with the team at Visions catering for our wedding! From our first tasting to the final execution, Visions was on-point, they answered every question we had and were up-front with all of their options and pricing....
We were able to customize a menu that included everything we wanted and the price-point was very reasonable. On the day of our wedding, the Visions team were total pros, they setup all of the tables well in advance of the ceremony and in plenty of time for our florist to get the flowers setup. The tables looked incredible as did all of the staff that came to work the event, our guests were very complimentary of both the food and the service. The bride and groom were even brought a plate with all of the appetizers so we didn’t miss anything! The food was incredible, including the prime rib which isn’t easy to prepare and transport. We had an amazing experience and can’t recommend Visions Catering enough to anybody looking for a world-class dining event!

red a payment plan so we didn't have to pay a lump sum for food and drinks 2 weeks before the wedding. My advice to brides would be to schedule your linen appointment early! They only have a certain amount and the color I wanted was already being used for another event on our date, but the colors we worked out looked beautiful! We had the venue the Friday prior to our wedding. We were hoping to have the linens placed so our other vendors could begin decorating but they would no deliver them until 3pm the Saturday of the wedding. I ended up paying extra to have them delivered only and hour early which seems absurd but it helped our other vendors complete the reception before the ceremony began so it was worth it. The passed hors d'oeuvres were a hit and the dinner was amazing. We also used them for the bar which was nice. My mother used to be in catering and she was really happy with all of the staff. They also cut the cake and saved the top tier for my fiance and I! Despite the few minor setbacks prior to the event, the day went perfectly!

As mother of the bride, and Matron of Honor, I was completely shocked at the lack of professionalism, accountability and overall inexperience.
Days leading up to the wedding and reception both held at the Kr...
ess Terrace, we requested multiple meetings to finalize our wine selection, confirm color scheme, and timing of the wedding and other details. How can I put it, well it was like "pulling teeth" to get anyone let alone the owner to return calls and actually set-up a meeting. When we finally sat down with owner to discuss the details, going back and forth with owner and her staff, we were told by the owner, “I’ve been doing this along time, don't worry, I'm good at what I do".
I don't know where to begin...
Our daughter’s wedding unbeknownst to us, fell on the same weekend as the Folk Festival. You would think that when choosing such an important date, giving the event manager several dates in September, and finally landing the date (only date available in September), the event coordinator for the Kress/Visions Catering would have the Folk Festival on calendar as a potential conflict and give any potential client the heads up prior to the client choosing their date for their big day. You see, during the Folk Festive downtown parking is $10.00 per car, which on a normal weekend parking would be free. We were told “no worries” we (Visions) will handle this with the city. Well, that didn’t happen, after several attempts to get this issued settled with Visions and the wedding quickly approaching, we were told by Visions that we would have to pay for parking. So, I reached out to the city and they came to an agreement to reduce cost per car of $5.00, which of course we were not going to allow our guests to incur the cost. We paid the cost of parking to the city day before the wedding.
Many of our guests complained about the food, or lack thereof. The mashed potatoes and rolls were gone before our last table made their way to the buffet; mind you we only had 105 attendees. Clearly there was not enough food for our guests. We ordered teriyaki baked chicken, we were served was plain baked chicken (over baked), we ordered penne pasta with vodka sauce, what we were served was clearly not penne pasta with vodka sauce; it was some type of cream sauce. As for the appetizers, we ordered three and received a fourth as a bonus, caprese crostini, we never received, the crostini's.
There were issues the staff. I expected to see the staff professionally dressed or at the least, in clean clothes not a black un-tucked t-shirt and jeans. Every wedding reception I have ever attended (not at the Kress Terrace), the bartenders are for the most part always wearing a vest, not a t-shirt. The server behind the buffet table couldn't have more than 16 years old, wearing the same (dirty cloths as the bartender) serving mash potatoes with an ice cream scooper. This was completely unacceptable; this after all was a wedding reception, not a cafeteria lunch line. We were to have a "chef" carving station for what was supposed to be medium rare beef, what was served by the "boy" behind the buffet table was nothing more than a very well done hockey puck, not medium rare beef.

rything was great - the hash brown casserole was cheesey and perfect, pancakes were silver dollar size so they would be a good portion for the guests and not take up the entire plate, the corn beef hash was good but we asked that they add eggs and peppers to it to which they said no problem. On the day of our wedding, they served plain hash browns barely warmed, not the hash brown casserole that we had tried at our tasting. The pancakes were regular size and took over the entire plate. They did not properly label the different toppings and our guests had to ask the staff what they were and the staff wasn't sure either. The corn beef hash was not the way they promised with eggs and peppers. They brought mixers for our mimosa bar and ran out before the reception was over. We sent them an email after we returned from our honeymoon hoping to get a response regarding the shortfalls from our wedding and got no response back. I don't want to leave a bad review but I don't want this to happen to anyone else. They might be fine for a regular evening wedding but don't ask them to go "outside the box" with your menu - you will be disappointed.

ed working with Michele. She was the one I corresponded with throughout the year from the time we signed the contract until the wedding day. They were so accommodating, even ordering more table linens to get more of the ones I wanted when they didn’t have enough. The process was smooth and painless and I never felt like I was nervous about the venue or caterer. On the wedding day, I had a friend who was supposed to do my “day of” stuff for me and I remember her walking up to me at one point saying that there was nothing for her to do because the staff had already done it all. Cindy was the event manager that night and was more than awesome. The entire staff was so friendly and didn’t miss a beat. You could tell they knew what they were doing and didn’t miss a beat. They actually went above and beyond what I expected from them and took care of me and my bridal party before, during, and after the wedding. I never thought that my wedding and wedding day would run so smoothly from all of the “tales” you hear from friends, but thanks to Suite 300 and Visions Catering, it was almost relaxing. The catering was also something that definitely needs to be mentioned. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that most wedding food isn’t 5 star quality. Visions Catering outdid themselves and the food was amazing!! More people commented on how great the food was at the wedding than I think they did my dress!!! It’s a good thing my dress was so “supportive” so that I couldn’t eat all of the food they had for us. We had tons of food to offer our guests during cocktail hour and dinner and Visions offers some really awesome pre-pay/payment plan extras to boost the meal plan that you go with. They even made sure the bridal party had appetizers that were served while we were taking pictures so that they wouldn’t miss out. During the tasting they prepare certain foods but you are able to set up a private tasting of things you would like to specifically try if it wasn’t at the tasting. All of that being said, I can’t think Suite 300 and Visions Catering enough. I have dreamed of being a princess my entire life and they helped me get as close to it as I ever will on my wedding day. Thank you to all who helped and made my wedding day one that I will never forget and one of the happiest days of my life!

Everyone was so incredibly attentive and our Event Manager, Nina, made sure everything ran flawlessly and continued to check in with me throughout the night!
Their flexibility with their bar packages is another huge selling point. We were able to pay up to a certain point and then switch to cash bar depending on the time of night we ran out! The bartenders were amazing and also very attentive. They kept up with my huge crowd of around 165, most of whom crowded around the bar during the UNC/Dook game. Go Heels.

60-70 people-- made for a restless night worried if quantity of food would be an issue at the reception for 250+ people. We booked early to 'lock-in' on pricing. Their pricing did change between our booking and the event As we made final decisions and set the menu, we did have to remind them of the original pricing at the time of our booking. The other main issue was with the rental of the chiavari chairs. During the time while we were trying to clarify pricing on the chairs (old pricing vs new pricing), they got 'rented' to another event. We were able to rent through another company but at a 50% higher price than we had planned.

However, there were two glaring issues. The first being that they were late (an hour) arriving to set up. My dad asked where our outdoor bar was and the employee stated that he did not have time to do it (even though we paid extra money for an outdoor bar). The set up was not done correctly per our diagram (because they rushed due to being late). Also, our food was well over an hour late being set out to serve. Luckily we had an amazing wedding coordinator (NOT through Visions) who made it work but it did put a kink in the timeline and was slightly embarrassing! When my husband reached out to the office to let them know (he was a banquet manager for many years) there was not much in the way of an apology.

h, checks and gift cards off of the gift table. Through an investigation with the Greensboro Police Department, Visions was able to identify this man and he has since been arrested. Unfortunately during this investigation, it was brought to my attention that Visions knowingly hired this previously convicted felon and was fully aware of his very extensive criminal background. Despite these circumstances, Visions’ owner, Karen Willette, was very hard to get in touch with and did not return many of my calls, texts or emails. I do appreciate Visions willingness to identify the perpetrator, however I am very disappointed in the lack of sympathy on their behalf or even attempt to give a refund for our losses. After dealing with Visions in this capacity, I truly question Visions’ business model and efforts for proper customer satisfaction. In my opinion, Visions seems to be placing its focus on the gain of new business instead of treating customers with respect and compassion. I have held off writing this review as I experienced great customer service before and during my wedding but the lack of empathy and communication during this matter has me disappointed that a business would treat customers this way. I would highly encourage brides or other prospects to take Visions hiring practices into careful consideration when choosing this company & would not wish this on anyone else.

Cindy, Michelle, Etta, and Samantha were a few of the employees that I worked with from our tasting, finalizing details, and on our wedding day. Each of these women were such a pleasure to work with. There is so much that goes into catering an event and providing linens and dinnerware and they knew all the answers to my million questions and even had other suggestions as well. I worked with Cindy, Michelle, and Etta to finalize our wedding day menu and logistics. Samantha worked with us at our initial tasting and when I stopped by the kitchen at my venue on the wedding day to take a peak at my wedding cake, I ran into Samantha. It was such a relief having her there because I really enjoyed her at our tasting (which was 10 months before our wedding). She oversaw the evening and everything went without a hitch.
As soon as my husband and I were introduced and did our first dance, we sat down at our table. Samantha immediately got our drink and food orders. As a bride, I couldn't stomach any food at all the morning and afternoon, so at that point I was starving. While Samantha was getting our plates (before all our other guests), I took a look around the tent and everything was just perfect. The table linens were beautiful, the buffet setting looked delicious, and the staff diligently worked throughout the evening to make sure all our guests were accommodated. A huge thank you personally to Samantha!
Caterers really are the finishing touch to any wedding and I am so grateful we went with Visions! Aside, from me admitting to eating leftovers a week after our wedding, our guests continue to rave about the delicious food. Everyone with Visions really brought my "vision" to life…from the food, place settings, and logistics of the evening. Thank you so much to everyone at Visions who I had the pleasure to work with when planning my wedding and to those who worked my wedding as well!

My Wife and I hired Visions catering for our Daughter’s wedding reception. Several people recommended them and they had good reviews and reasonable prices. Nothing went disastrously wrong but I w...
as disappointed overall. My Wife called Visions after the Wedding to give and get some feedback for the things that went wrong and she really got nowhere with them accepting any responsibility or giving any constructive feedback.
Plenty of staff - well dressed, professional and courteous. Quick and efficient. They did an excellent job with the set up, covered chairs and buffet line. Waiters for horderves and drink glasses were good. Bartender was excellent. Food was pretty good.
The not so good
1) One of the main entrée’s was missing (we only had chicken and were supposed to have pork medallion’s also). It got omitted by Visions from the final contract somehow and we did not catch it.
2) The food was served in a buffet line (instead of table service) and was mostly self-serve. We were not told that the food that was served would be rationed. If we had known that some or our guests could not get the serving size they wanted we would have ordered more so that our guests didn’t feel shorted. Example – we had “shrimp and grits” as one of the side dishes (my daughter’s southern favorite). After taking your grits a server would place four shrimp on top of it. When I went thru the line that was fine for me since I did not take much of the grits. Unbeknownst to me at the time, other grit lovers took more grits but were told that they could not get any more than the four small shrimp. The server actually took shrimp off of my aunt’s plate when he mistakenly gave her five shrimp instead of four! Word of the “Shrimp Nazi” spread at the reception and my Wife and I were embarrassed. The Bride was upset.
3) My wife was encouraged to add to the contract for “extra ice” at an extra charge. Visions was familiar with the venue and should have been fully aware that the hall had a commercial kitchen with a full icemaker. I felt we were encouraged and then charged extra unnecessarily. That’s just bad business.
4) We wanted to do the table decorations early (mostly elaborate homemade stuff) and we wanted to pick up some of the table linens the night before so that we could start decorating everything early the next day. We were told that would be an extra $125 charge for us to get the linens the day before the wedding.

My husband (fiance at the time) and I were very nervous about getting a caterer. We thought we wouldn't be able to afford it and that they wouldn't have good food, and the costs of the silverware would be astronomical. We were so wrong! The ...
food is delicious! They have a little bit of everything too! Salads, meat carving stations, breads, pastas, veggies. They help you with colors, table settings, bows on the chairs, napkins, drinks etc. And the price is just right. They are also amazing when the bride has a moment of panic that the table setting is the wrong color and maybe she wants a different one... and maybe she is in a different city and they have to set the table up and set her a picture. They handle that too. I highly recommend them. Also they do doggy bags with food at the end!

Visions Catering was awesome! Before the wedding, they were super helpful with helping us decide the menu and pick linens and were very reasonably priced ($16-25/person). They even worked with us to do a couple new things that they didn't origi...
nally have on their master list of food options. They also give you the option to go back and do a final tasting with up to 5 of the items on your "final" menu for $15/person (it is recommended that you do this tasting before the final menu and head count are due, though, in case you want to make last minute changes based on it). Everything we tasted, at both the initial and final tastings, was delicious. They prompted me with reminders for things they needed before the big day, like the floor layout. On the day of the wedding, they were critical to everything being set up for the cocktail hour and reception. They completely set up the cocktail hour in the lower level, because we rented tables from them and didn't have the tables the day before for set up. They flipped the main level (where we also had the ceremony), setting out the buffet and tables according to the floor plan and even setting up the centerpieces (I sent them and my coordinator pictures of what they should look like the night before). They even saved the day by providing cake cutter stuff, because we totally spaced on getting that! All in all, it was a great experience working with them and I highly recommend them to everyone I know.

Visions catered our wedding in a buffet style. Visions is good because you can completely customize your menu. The food was great at the tasting and it was good on the night of the wedding - cooking for 3 people vs. 200 people. There were a ...
couple of hiccups during the event, but nothing that wasn't handled quickly and professionally. Overall, I would recommend this caterer for someone who is looking for variety in their menu and good food at a reasonable cost.

rough the line in my big dress! Visions has a great selection of food and alcohol, and really makes sure you get exactly what you want. Julie was a pleasure to work with, and our final consult went so smoothly. I was really concerned about my color scheme and finding tablecloths that I would like (they offer those at a great deal with your package!), but they quickly soothed any worries, and we found purple and green that turned out perfectly! There was even a nice shiny neon green cake tablecloth. ;-) Out of the 4 or so caterers that I talked with, Visions really had the most options and the most bang for your buck. There really was no question about who was the best caterer for our wedding. It certainly helped that they knew our venue so well, and left me with nothing to worry about! (I only wish we had been given our champagne out on the dance floor as people were giving their toasts, instead of us asking for it after we had cut the cake; that was great champagne!)
Really, I would recommend them to anyone needing a caterer and linen rentals. It was a great night of food and service!

xiety over everything. Karen answered all of our questions and really put my Mom's mind at ease. The food was FABULOUS. All of our guests raved about the food and said it was the best wedding they have ever been to. Not only does Visions provide the food but also the table linens, centerpieces, and limo service. They provide many other services but this is what we used for ours. The centerpieces were perfect and exactly what I pictured in my head. Karen really seemed to know what I wanted and what my style was. I cannot say enough good things about Visions. The only thing I was not pleased with was the limo. It is not their limo, just something that they can arrange for you. When I called to complain about the limo I was refunded the majority of the money we paid for the limo service. Overall I was extremely happy with Visions and could not have asked for a more perfect evening.

Although my guests still had a great time, you definetly do not get what you are told you are getting. My parents nicely confronted the person we had been dealing with (since she was at our wedding), and she was very rude to my parents and told them that we didnt pay for the top shelf liquor, although thats what she told us we would get.
