See what some of our customers have to say about their experience with A Catered Event.

“A Catered Event was one of the best vendors we worked with on our wedding day! A Catered Event is truly a full service caterer and I can’t recommend them highly enough! They treated our guests like family and their service is second to none. Their experience and knowledge of weddings were essential to helping us plan the layout and flow for both our ceremony and reception. They delivered and set-up the chairs for our outdoor ceremony well in advance, and even provided the reception linens and some decor that helped us create the special look we were going for. They did an incredible job setting up the reception space – it looked exactly like what we had envisioned! The fruit display at our appetizer hour was such a hit and enjoyed by all! The food was delicious and we loved that they had plenty of options for our vegetarian guests as well.”


“We had A Catered Event for our barn reception. We had a wonderful experience from dropping the drinks off to the staff serving them. We ordered appetizers, coffee, bar services, and servers. We also did all the linens and tables through them. Set up and tear down was a breeze. All we had to do was decorate, they put everything away for us at the end of the night!
Bob and his staff are a class act and so easy to work with. I recommend them for any event large or small!”


“Words cannot describe how grateful I am for the service A Catered Event provided. They took care of every detail seamlessly, and made sure I had a perfect wedding day. The entire staff was so kind and fun to work with, my family and bridal party couldn’t stop talking about them. The food was absolutely delicious, it looked beautiful, and everything went perfectly. I would highly, HIGHLY recommend using them!”


“Thank you so much for excellent service! You and your staff exceeded my expectations. I was impressed with the systematic structure used from my office visit to the end of the event. Therefore, I rate everything EXCELLENT! Please know that I appreciate your efficiency and professionalism. I will only use and recommend A Catered Event for any of my future needs.”

Their service was fantastic and their food was great as well! Many of our guest raved about the food at our wedding. 10/10 would use A Catered Event again!”


“Thank you for all you and your team did to make our day special. The team that worked during our wedding was phenomenal. Thank you.”


“The day of food and service was phenomenal. I was really pleased with how everything turned out. They were very professional and accommodating the day of the wedding and there were no major hiccups. Everything went just as planned.”


“My daughter’s wedding was a very unique event. Since it was a nostalgia rock and roll wedding – we wanted food that everyone knew and enjoyed. We chose burgers, dogs, macaroni & cheese, salad, baked fries. Our venue was a logistical nightmare, but they worked it all out and just burgers and dogs ended up being perfect and really tasty. I heard many comments on how good everything was. I also heard many comments on how fantastic and attentive the catering staff was. They even made our milkshake station happen – hand making milkshakes for everyone in a timely manner. This wasn’t your typical wedding reception – and they worked out all my unique requests. Pretty much every person said it was the “Best Wedding Ever”, and I feel “A Catered Event” was a part of why it was.”


“We simply cannot thank you enough for your role in Rebecca’s wedding. Your entire staff was so professional & the food delicious. Thank you so much for making the evening complete.”


“Wanted to thank you again for the wonderful event that you helped us put on. We had the most enjoyable day and get many great compliment about the event staff. To say our day was perfect is an understatement. You and your staff made it that way! Thank you.”


Our Wedding was April 5th 2014 and we used A Catered Event. They did our food, drinks, waiting staff, etc. They did such a wonderful job! I would recommend this place to anyone who is getting married. They take away so much worry of what your guest will be eating and how they will be taken care of. And the décor was amazing, we told them our colors and everything else was taken care of, the place was gorgeous!!! As a bride my breath was taken away with what the place looked like, they really eased my mind about multiple things and brides all need that lol.”


I initially chose A Catered Event because they were willing to work with me a bit on the price. I wanted to invite as many guest as possible without worrying about price. They made it possible. There is no other caterer in the city that will give you this quality for less than $25 a plate. First of all, they helped create the perfect meal that my husband and I loved! We had a taco bar, almost like Chipotle, with brisket and southwest chicken with chorizo. My guests kept telling me it was the best food they had at a wedding! Not only were the caterers professional and polite, but they seemed to provide services that would almost rival that of a wedding planner. They helped me rent a tent and worked with my facility (North Bank Park Pavilion) to ensure everything was set up properly. Beforehand, we toured the facility and created a floorplan for the big day together. They also helped get everything set up on the day of — when it RAINED unexpectedly and we had to move everything inside. They also helped me rent a heater last minute. I will recommend this caterer to everyone I know. They made the wedding a million times less stressful and I appreciate everything they did for me! They also let you buy your own alcohol, which helped save a lot of money! I cannot thank them enough!”


“Bob and Mary Jane were amazing! They were easy to work with and very attentive! On the day of the wedding, they were both there working our wedding and making sure everything went smoothly. The food was delicious and exceeded our expectations! A lot of our guests commented that it was the best wedding food they’ve very had! The staff was very friendly and helpful! They made sure I (bride) and my groom were taken care of at all times. I highly recommend A Catered Event for any of your catering needs!”


“Excellent Choice for a Stress Free Day
A Catered Event is a superbly managed company that became my “on-stop shop” for my catering and coordinating needs. I desired a company that could deliver delicious food, coordinate/arrange/set-up equipment rentals to include chairs, tents, tables, linens, china and do it all in a cost-effective manner. A Catered Event exceeded my expectations and the communication with Mary Jane Himes and Susan Conrad was amazing. The amount and quality of the communication offered, especially when a majority of the decisions happened via e-mail, was above average. Many people say something always goes wrong the day of the wedding, but with the caterer I selected, I had nothing go wrong. A Sincere thank you!”


“I would like to thank you and your team for an amazing dinner last week. Everything was wonderful and I heard rave reviews all around! Thanks again.”


“I wanted you to know how pleased Forrest and I were with the job you did with our party. The food was very good and your service was outstanding ..you were helpful beyond what I anticipated and I enjoyed working with you .. thanks so much .. pass the word along to Bob. We’ll definitely have you do our 75th! but maybe just the 2 of us!”


“Our guests loved the food and the experience working with them. We can’t thank A Catered Event enough for all of their assistance on our big day. With their help – it was truly a day to remember!”


“I want to thank you again for the terrific job that you and your staff did for Jen & Jeff’s wedding reception. Numerous people throughout the evening and since then have told me how very much they enjoyed the reception atmosphere, music and food. All were impressed by how friendly and attentive your staff was and by the quality and presentation of the food. We have all been to receptions where the serving staff looked and acted like they wanted to be somewhere else. Their attitude can make such a difference in the enjoyment of the guests. Thank you for being there – you certainly helped make it a wonderful and blessed day for Jen & Jeff. Also, thanks very much for the photo collage. Have a blessed and peaceful Christmas season.”


“First, we just want to say what an awesome event the reception was and you and your staff had a big part in making it even more special. We got so many compliments on the food and the service; everyone felt that you all went above and beyond and we agree 110%. Mary Jane really impressed the older couple that she helped out throughout the evening and they said they felt like “royalty”. We really appreciated you seeing the need and helping them every step of the way as they both were not that stable on their feet and had traveled a little distance to come. I also want to thank Brian who was our go to person-I barely had to turn my head and he was there for all of us. Your waiters were all so pleasant and I don’t think I ever saw a dirty dish as they were swooped up so fast. I also think the sanctuary was probably cleaner when you left than it was when you got there; we appreciate your tidiness. We thought the food was not only very tasty, but hot and there sure was plenty of it. We want to thank you again for your professionalism and for making Steph’s special day even more special. We will definitely recommend you to all of our friends and hope to use you in the future. If you would like to use us as a reference, please do. Thanks again.”

-Roger and Ruth

“I would like to say in advance how EXTREMELY PLEASED the City of Columbus has been each and every time A Catered Event has done this continental breakfast for us. Again, thank you for the quality service you provide each and every time. It is a pleasure working with A Catered Event!”

-Tina Defluiter / City of Columbus

“I liked the friendly personalities of the owners & the all inclusive packages (linens, china, etc) for the price. I felt our reception was beautiful & spectacular & I couldn’t be happier with the amount of help the caterer was. We were so pleased with the photo card you gave us as a gift. Thank you very much. What a special touch. Overall I was very happy with A Catered Event.”


“Most Thankful!
What a “Wonderful Day” Saturday was! You and the staff did the most impeccable job! You all worked above and beyond the service expected. You all worked together – smiles on your faces – kind word. You are a wonderful Group of People. Your impeccable showmanship shows you all Love the Job!”


“I wanted to let you know that today was AWESOME! Your staff was so very professional on on-it! They even cleaned the tables and took people’s plates from there. I wasn’t expecting either of those. I can’t tell you what a nice surprise it was to have that. Typically, Amy and I myself do what your staff did. This was so nice for us to actually enjoy the luncheon. The food was just as good! Desserts, Ham, stuffing were all huge hits! I can’t wait to do business with you and your staff again. I will be sure to keep you posted on any functions that we have. Thank you again, it was top-notch! Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and safe New Years!”


“Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! You all did such an amazing job. We could not be happier with the service, the food, and the attitude you all had during the entire time. You enhanced the party more than you will ever know.”


“A Catered Event did a fantastic job catering our wedding. They were extremely accommodating and helpful during the planning stages, even going so far as t meet us on a Sunday at our venue to talk about the seating chart and other details. The food was amazing and the service was spectacular. The majority of the compliments we got after the reception were regarding the food they prepared for our friends and family. Thank you again for helping to make our Big Day great!”


“I first want to let you know how much we as well as our guests appreciated your services at our reception! Your staff were extremely professional yet fun. You guys were awesome and I have already recommended you to a friend for her wedding! Once again, thank you for making our day as easy as possible!”


“I recently was married and hired A Catered Event. They did an amazing job, every detail was perfect! Mary Jane and Bob was a pleasure to work with through the entire process and actually made it fun (which I was dreading). My mother in law was impressed with the fact that we hardly noticed they were there but dinner flowed nicely and tables were always cleared. I would recommend A Catered Event to anyone with any size budget. Thank you Mary Jane and Bob! “


“Thank you both for such a beautifully executed event on Saturday at the Vault. Everything was just beautiful, the food was delicious and your staff was amazing – so many compliments were shared about their attentiveness and professional service. Please give our very sincere compliments to Kim – she was just wonderful!

Annie and I have enjoyed working with you both and please know that you were a very big part of making a mother and her daughter’s dream come true for a perfect wedding reception. It was just lovely.
Best regards to you both and thank you again for everything!”


“Thank you for your service- everything went well- the food was delicious, warm, and attractively presented! I was very pleased with Kim along with the other ladies! They were very organized and professional! The team members were SUPER and it made the event so special knowing you and your workers had EVERYTHING under control.”


“Just wanted to let you know that our party on Sat night was a big success! The food was GREAT and we had the perfect amount. Millie was a huge asset! She was terrific and so helpful. She arrived early and I discussed with her that I didn’t need her to pass food but to just keep things filled. She kept the food filled and looking good, picked up any used plates etc, took care of the trash, kept the bar area neat and took away empty wine bottles. She completely took over the cutting of the birthday cake and she kept enough pieces already cut and on plates for our guests. In a word she was Amazing! She was so pleasant and efficient and very professional.
Thanks so much for your help and I look forward to recommending you to others and working with you again!”


“Many of the guest & family members commented on how nice & friendly the staff were & how Mr. & Mrs. Himes went out of their way to make sure everyone had what they needed. The pretzel buns were a big hit! Especially with the chicken salad. You were so easy to work with & quick to respond to my many questions.”


“THANK YOU. Everyone raved about the food and the presentation. We were on target with amounts and people loved it all. You were right about the BLT eggs….big hit! Kim and (my mind is blank on the second girls name) were terrific! Very attentive, unobtrusive and just really nice. It was a pleasure and we would definitely use you in the future.”


“I would like to thank you and your staff for providing the meals last night. Your staff was great and helpful, and the families loved the meals!”


“Everything was TOP NOTCH! We couldn’t have been happier with the turnout and how professional your staff was, yet again! You definitely out-do yourselves. It’s so nice working with your group. You definitely helped make such a memorable experience.”
