Eric and Emily San Diego, CA
We recently used ArtQuest to cater our wedding and we could not be happier with the outcome. ArtQuest was the 2nd catering company we met with and pretty much right away we knew they were the right choice. Not only are Kathy, Victor and Diane great people but the food and service provided was incredible. Also, Diane’s husband Mario officiated our ceremony. He did a fantastic job of easing our nerves and making it a short but meaningful ceremony. Everybody at ArtQuest was so helpful with any adjustments we wanted to make and overall made the experience very enjoyable. Victor even created a new chicken dish for us after we described what we were interested in and it was a huge hit with our guests.
The Food: First of all, the appetizers were so good that they were gone before we got any… seriously. We chose the coconut shrimp, beef teriyaki sticks and bacon wrapped scallops, all getting rave reviews. There is nothing worse than going to a wedding and being served a cold, pre-plated meal. We did a buffet style dinner and the portions were huge. Everything was fresh and delicious from the grilled mediterranean vegetables to the prime rib carving station. Absolutely, the best food I have ever had at a wedding and several guests said the same. I would definitely use them to cater other events.
The Service: Diane was not only our flower and decorations expert, but also our day-of coordinator but she went above and beyond just coordinating the wedding day. She kept us involved throughout the process with emails and phone calls which was very helpful. Leading up to the wedding, she coordinated setup and delivery with all of our vendors and helped make changes on the fly when things didn’t go as originally planned. ArtQuest provided all of the rentals as well such as chairs, tables, linens, etc. which also made our lives easier.
The People: The main reason we chose ArtQuest was because we immediately liked and trusted everything about them. Victor and Kathy felt like our parents setting up the wedding, concerned about everything we wanted to do and not leaving out any details. They are truly a small, family business and we felt comfortable through every step of the process.
Choosing the right catering company is probably the most important step when planning a wedding, and we definitely made the right choice. We will recommend Artquest to all of our friends and to anybody planning their next big event. Thanks again!!!
