Omg. We couldn't have picked a better caterer. People have been calling and texting us about how much they enjoyed the food. It was so delicious and flavorful. Oh, and that mac and cheese was perfection. It was so much food. I asked for it to feel like home and you delivered.... Read More Everyone was stuffed. It was one of the groomsmen first time eating soul food lol. He loved it.  Thank you so much for everything.  Guests talked about how well your staff operated.

This company is absolutely AWFUL! Their food is subpar.. and that's about as far as it goes.We had Simone booked as our caterer for our wedding for an entire year.. their organization skills are terrible. I received at least 5 emails confirming what our final menu was, despite... Read More the fact that we finalized it while we were in front of them. I responded to each email and confirmed our menu multiple times. And then when it came down to the actual wedding, We were served food that we did not order AT ALL. I specifically told her in an email 2 weeks prior to the wedding that my Fiance' despised pesto, and Simone took it upon herself to change our menu and serve whatever she felt like cooking. We were served Pesto chicken (despite the fact that i specifically said no to pesto, and we had 2 people with nut allergies so we did not want pesto chicken AT ALL!), and served a salad that was the exact opposite of everything we confirmed. We paid for a beautiful coffee barista station, and were instead presented with a Keurig set up right next to the food.... After the wedding, I sent an email expressing my disappointment, and was responded to with Snark and basic disregard for the fact that they did whatever it was they pleased instead of what we paid for. We will be taking legal action against this company since they refuse to right their wrongs. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere for catering if you want a company that is organized and follows the menu that is on your invoice and finalized menu!!!

A few months before the wedding my wife and I went vegan. Once again Samone saved the day and delivered the most amazing beef tip dish that I have ever tasted till this date. If you are looking for the best of the best when it comes down to catering. She is it! She never stopped surprising us and always exceeded our expectations.

When I started my search for caterers I heard and read nothing but great things about Wishful Concepts from how nice they are to how great their food is. However, I have been in contact with the owner (Samone) since February 7th, we were messaging back and forth because I was... Read More really excited about them and wanted to set up a consultation, the last message I sent was on February 12th and I did not hear anything back until March 3rd but it was brought to my attention that they had been dealing with a family emergency so I let the lack of response for two weeks slide because I was being understanding. After that we started back messaging and Samone let me know that they had some consultation spots open for March 8th, I messaged her back, again very excited, on March 5th saying that date would be perfect and told her the time my fiancé and I could come and I haven't heard anything back since. They have such good reviews when it comes to communication/responsiveness however I am tremendously disappointed in the blatant lack of response I received from Samone. I understand that she's the owner and is probably a very busy woman but if that's the case someone else should oversee the potential clients and ensure that they are answered to in a reasonable amount of time. I hate to write negative reviews but I want all the soon to be brides and grooms to know that if they are expecting timely responses/great communication, this isn't the place to go. Don't waste your time.
