About Steven's Catering

Wedding Reception September 2010, Wendy Johnson
Thank you again so much for creating a wonderful wedding celebration for Wes and Megan. They recently said they would not have changed a thing about their special day. The food was delicious! Your staff were all delightful and so efficient and competent! I am amazed at how many people enjoyed a lovely dinner in our home with your help. When you say you hope to exceed our expectations, you really do! Thanks again. I am looking for a reason to work with you again soon!

Wedding Reception June 2010, Mitzi Noland
Thank you so very much for your part in making our only daughter's wedding an amazing event! Your willingness to meet with us as needed ahead of time, as well as your expertise and professional manner helped us to make decisions that created the atmosphere of simple elegance that my daughter and her fiance desired. The food was fantastic as many of our guests have mentioned, the presentation wonderful and your staff was amazing. I have and will recommend your business to anyone I know who is planning a major event. Thank you especially for your insight and servant's heart! May God continue to bless you and your business!

Wedding Reception, Jill R. Bremer
My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Steven's Catering for our wedding reception in the spring of 2010. Steven had a very clear idea of the vision we had for our event from the start and offered very helpful suggestions to really make it work. He was always available to meet with us - even if it was just a phone call.

The food was exceptional! It was fresh and original and there was plenty of it.

The Steven's Catering staff was extremely professional. Before the event, a staff member made a special trip to my office to drop off samples, as I was tied up with a hectic work schedule. My husband and I were taken care of during our event - with full glasses of champagne at all times! All of my guests commented how friendly and un-imposing the serving staff was as well.

Riverside Hospital, Julie Barnes
My name is Julie Barnes, and I am the Practice Manager at Riverside Nephrology Associates. I am delighted to serve as a reference for Steven Sims and Steven's Catering.

I have been using Steven's Catering for almost 2 years, and I have found both the food and the service to be exceptional. Steven often provides lunch for our in-office business meetings, and last year he catered our annual staff and family Holiday Party. Steven and his staff are consistently professional, reliable, and easy to work with. The food is of the highest quality, delivered on time, and delicious. I never worry when I place an order with Steven; after the call is made, I know my event is in good hands.

One of my favorite features of Steven's Catering (aside from the decadent brownies) is the pro-active approach they take to assure the highest quality outcome. When I recently placed an order and forgot to make the usual special dietary request for one of the attendees, Steven remembered and brought it to my attention. The day before that same event, Steven called to confirm the event due to the inclement weather we were expecting. He gave us the option to cancel if necessary, but also promised the food would be delivered no matter the conditions if the event was to proceed.

I recommend Steven and his company to you without reservation, as I am confident he will provide delicious food with the personal attention necessary to guarantee a successful event.

ING, Allison Sayer, Marketing Consultant
I wanted to thank you for the excellent catering you provided us. Everyone in our office meeting thoroughly enjoyed their lunch and couldn't say enough about how wonderful everything was.

Even though we only spoke the day before the event, you came through for us and make the meeting much more enjoyable. Thank you for taking our last minute request hours before the event to add more portions to the meal and working with me in this extraordinarily short time frame to help us decide on a dish that would suite our employees the most. Every single item was delicious. The sourdough rolls were fantastic, the salad was fresh and wonderful, the Mediterranean chicken pasta was phenomenal and the desserts, the desserts were out of this world. The portions were huge and everyone left completely satisfied.

I have put your cards on the front desk and they are disappearing quickly. I have been telling anyone who will listen about how talented and professional you and your staff are and we hope to use you again in the future for our catering needs.

We want to extend our sincere appreciation for a job well done at our party in May! We were very pleased with every aspect of your services.

From the beginning, you provided excellent personalized attention. You were very thorough, making sure no detail was left unanswered, yet you did that in an efficent, unobtrusive manner. Your team executed the plan beautifully, allowing us to relax and enjoy the party!

We were quite impressed with your food and drinks served that night. In fact, we're still getting compliments from our guests! The presentations were great. Your crew handled last minute changes on location beautifully. Every item was delicious and well-suited for our crowd. (The chicken meatballs and the desserts were our staff's favorites!) Your team provided excellent bar service. As you know, that was the busy area of the house, and you went above and beyond handling the steady demand!

We appreciate everything you did to make our event spectacular. We hope to have occasion to work with you again soon! Congratulations to you and your entire staff, and we wish you continued success!

Friends of the Arts, Linda Larrimer, Co-Chairman, ART at the Cabaret
The Friends of the Arts in UA would like to thank you for making our fundraising event, ART at the Cabaret, a great success. We wanted to have a sophisticated and fun atmosphere and you and your staff came through for us.

Everyone enjoyed the hors d'oeurves; we have received numerous compliments on the delicious food and its presentation. We had rave reviews on the meatballs and the stuffed mushrooms. We knew we had a short set up time to create a cabaret environment, but you and your staff were organized and we were more than ready when the first of our over 100 guests arrived at 7:30. With inventive table decorations, you helped transform the room into a cabaret. Throughout the evening your staff kept the tables filled with wonderful food and looking great, and served our cabaret goers with professionalism and courtesy.

All the Board members of the Friends of the Arts in UA would enthusiastically recommend your catering service and we would be happy to provide additional details on your handling of the event and its successful outcome to anyone seeking references.

Thank you.

Progressive Dinner Party, Becky Tunis
"I want to thank you and your wonderful staff for the marvelous dinner you catered for me at our annual Wingate Farms progressive dinner last Saturday evening. We were blessed with lovely weather, wonderful inventive food and a terrific waitstaff, so by all accounts this was a successful evening.
You and your employees were a joy to work with and I heard many compliments on how inventive and interesting the food was. The hummus alone should be mandatory!!!!!
Again, I sincerely appreciate all the work and time you invested to make this evening seem so effortless. Only a pro can achieve that goal and you surpassed it.

Cocktail Party, Judy and Dick Ruhl
Steven, thanks so much for handling all the details for the cocktail party, everyone enjoyed themselves so much, the comments have been so positive. You and your staff did a great job here as well as the other 2 houses. You made everything so easy for us as hosts -- now if we could just figure out a way to get everyone out of the kitchen!!!! See you next year.

Excel Business Solutions, Carol A. Warren, Owner
"I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Steven's for the wonderful job you did for our company holiday party. From the ordering process to cleanup of our event, everything was flawless. You and your firm are to be commended. Your staff was courteous, the food was delicious and the presentation beautiful. Please feel free to have any potential clients call us for a reference. We thank you for helping to make this event a huge success."

Wedding Rehearsal Dinner, Karine and Robert Fillmore
"Chef Steven did an excellent job at our rehearsal dinner. It was located in our home with 28 close friends and family attending. We couldn't have asked for better food and service. We felt very comfortable trusting Chef Steven. Before the big day, it was a huge relief not to worry about how the rehearsal dinner would turn out. Our expectations were meet and then some. Everyone had a great time and both of our families thought that his food was the best they had during the whole weekend of festivities."
