  • Very accommodating as we had to postpone our wedding 3 times due to COVID-19! Karen and Rev were the nicest people to work with and plan everything out! Their team was so attentive towards not just the bride and grooms needs but made all of our guests feel welcomed and satisfied! They wore masks and gloves to serve to abide by our restrictions!! All the food was terrific and got so many compliments throughout the night!! Loved having them as our caterer!

  • I would recommend CCVA to anyone for their wedding! Their attention to detail was fantastic and communication leading up to our wedding was wonderful. All of the guests raved about the food and everyone was happy. We went with the pasta bar option and there was enough food for everyone and plenty of options to pick from!

  • Truly an amazing experience, from top to bottom. We were so incredibly pleased by the personality of every server: they were great with all of our guests, even the kids, that the compliments about them all were constant! A shout out to them for treating my now husband and I wonderfully at our sweetheart table, making us feel special and among friends! The settings and arrangements of all tables were beautiful and exquisite. The food was excellent, all of our notes from our initial tastings correctly applied while also making adjustments on the fly for guests, and the gluten free menu options were accommodating and a blessing. Overall, we happily recommend Creative Catering for any events. In fact, we plan to use them again in the future, the food was THAT good! Thanks again for a fantastic evening straight out of our dreams!

  • CCVA is amazing!!! The quality AND quantity of food was great. The staff and management is super friendly - AND supportive/understanding, especially during these crazy times of covid-19. All of our guests were pleased with our selections for the plated meal and appetizers (you can't go wrong with their filet mignon, salmon, or chicken saltimbocca). The event manager was also very responsive to our needs and any questions that came about. I highly recommend their services!

  • Caitlin and the entire crew at creative was absolutely amazing. Getting married in the middle of a pandemic has not been easy. We were continuously making changes due to regulations and safety protocols, the last being 4 days before the event, and Caitlin was amazing the entire time and helping to make sure everything went smoothly and to perfection. I could not have asked for a better caterer for my wedding. And of course the food was amazing! Caitlin was even able to supple two of my guests with a vegan option!

  • I am so glad I used Creative Catering! Due to COVID, we had to totally change our plans and host a small backyard wedding. They were so accommodating and easy to work with. The guest loved the food and the service. Everyone was talking about how wonderful the servers were during the evening. I highly recommend them and I will use them again! Thank you Michele and Caitlin!

  • The first thing that helped me make Creative Catering our wedding choice was the fact that they are extremely communicative. Any questions I had were quickly answered. The food itself was fabulous and the bar staff was amazing! They quickly adapted to any last minute changes that we had and provided an amazing experience for us and our guest. I would highly recommend!

  • Booking a caterer was one of the most daunting tasks of our wedding planning process until the moment I spoke to Karen from CCoV. She answered any and all questions that we had throughout the entire process, no matter how annoying the questions were. She made sure to go over everything with us with a fine tooth comb. She also made special accommodations for our guests with food allergies such as putting cheese on the side of all of the salads and making sure our vegan guests food was not compromised by any animal products. Not to mention that the food was cooked absolutely perfect!!! We had a special request for our steak dish to be cooked medium rare and not a single one was over cooked, which is a really hard thing to achieve when cooking in mass quantities. I HIGHLY recommend giving them a call and booking them! Thank you again for all of your hard work and making sure that our day was beautiful and tasty :)

  • Creative Catering of Virginia provided the catering for my daughter’s wedding, and we are so happy that we chose them! From the first meeting with Karen, our CCVA contact, we began the wonderful experience of exploring all the different packages and menu selections that they offered. Karen was super organized and professional, and was very helpful in understanding our vision to find the perfect selections that we wanted, including vegan meals for our guests. The tasting was so elegant and so much fun, we felt like we were in a 5-star restaurant! Along the way, my daughter and Karen were frequently in contact to finalize every little detail. Any special request that we had was answered with “yes, we can do that!” The time for the wedding arrived, and everything was perfect! Delicious appetizers were served and the bartenders attended to the guests with friendly and pleasant smiles. The dinner of beef tenderloin and teriyaki salmon was absolutely delicious! We highly rec... Read more

  • I feel everyone knows the stereotype of less than good wedding food. Creative Catering broke the mold and I can happily say that the food was excellent and raved about. Aside from a few communication issues (that were always worked out), everyone we worked with was exceptional and willing to work with us being out of state and having a date change due to covid. I really appreciated all of the precautions they took in ensuring that my guests stayed as safe as possible. They took super detailed notes and really worked with us to ensure we were getting a quality for our budget. Thank you so much to Rev and the team for seamlessly adding to our wonderful day.

  • We did only get to do our tasting but really enjoyed all of the options provided for us. We also love their fun dessert choices - it's so hard to find caterers who do ice cream sundae bars and floats!

  • Michele took a $1,000 down deposit for a wedding that was supposed to take place in May. Due to recent events we had to cancel the wedding. Upon trying to contact this morally corrupt business to get the refund back, they do not answer (and no, your auto-reply email does not count). We have tried calling numerous times, and have sent plenty of emails, all with no reply. Looking forward to seeing how they will justify stealing $1,000 during a pandemic from people. Michele, all I ask is for you to do the right thing and return the money. There is no possible way that a you can willingly steal someones money and be able to sleep sound at night. Thankfully I did not pay the full 6 thousand dollars, that would have been hell trying to get that back.

    responded with the following comments.

    Dear Joshua & Courtney, 4/22/2020 It has certainly been an unimaginable almost six weeks now for all of us I'm sure. Obviously, the food services and event industry has been on the front line of lost business and feeling the economic impact more severely than most. Steadily since March 10, 2020, we have been busy working with our booked events both at our building venues - our "in house" events - and also the events and catering contracts we had at other venues, museum’s, state properties, private locations, Veteran’s Untied Home Loans Amphitheater, Hampton Coliseum, etc. to find the right course of action for each. Of all the events we had contracted between March 10, 2020, through June 10, 2020, all but five or six are rescheduled either for next year, or later this year, and this has been in response to our follow up, opening up all available dates as options, and the updated FAQ’s regarding our current and revised contracts and event agreements. Understanding the magnitude of this situation, we have re-written these to help all those clients not have to completely lose their non refundable deposits and payments, but instead be able to reschedule their original event or even transfer those funds to a new event with in one year of the original event date. From the email exchanges we had last week, I know that for you both, there seem to be difficulties with planning or rescheduling your wedding. I hope everything is ok. On March 12, 2020, Governor Northam declared a State of Emergency in the Commonwealth due to the statewide spread of COVID-19. Leaving many of us asking for guidance on how to navigate this public health crisis as we work to keep our families both healthy and financially stable. As you are probably aware, on March 18, 2020, Governor Ralph Northam requested that the Administrator of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) implement a Small Business Administration declaration to provide assistance in the form of SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loans for the counties and cities in the Commonwealth of Virginia affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The City of Chesapeake is listed as one of the cities within the request. On March 30, 2020, Virginia was issued a Stay at Home order, and that directive is now dated to be in place until June 10, 2020. Of course, in the past few days, many more updates in the form of state orders have been shared, while federal disaster relief options, etc. have been introduced only to already be unavailable. The uncertainty of how to best proceed only seems to get more confusing than clear some of these days. What we did know almost immediately, was that based on the staggering amount of accounts receivable we will no longer be able to, or are even seeking to, collect or bring into the business over these time frames, our current best course of action to keep our company solvent is to not remove any on-hand funds or issue any refunds. The reason for our decision is entirely based on our business effectively being “closed” or “shut down” due to the elimination of current and contracted sales / revenue through a currently impossible to determine and extended length of time. The events that have caused the immediate loss of sales / revenue are a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic and Governor Northam’s state of emergency that impacted all public gatherings and large events. The state and local government, utilities, lease holders, lenders, etc. have all implemented mostly deferment, waiving of tax collection to later dates, postponing interest payments, holding off late fees etc. all in this effort. This allows us to hopefully continue to exist as a business, while working to keep our management, sales consultants, chefs, and hourly workers poised to return from their lay off’s hopefully sooner than later to a company ready to take care of our guest, restock the shelves, and remain a thriving local small business. I am so, so sorry that you are unable to reschedule your wedding and reception. I am saddened by that, as I’m sure you and your friends and families are as well. Again for some, it would be easy to say that our contracts outline what monies are or are not refundable – specifically nonrefundable deposits - but my hope is that each one of our guest have an opportunity to apply those funds, no matter how far out the new event date may be. For you (both), I am offering to extend your event’s rescheduling window to 18 months. If this is not an option for you directly, but if you would like to transfer your payment(s) to somebody else for any catering services or venue rental we want to offer that for you as well. Please know that my desire would be that there could be future celebration that we could be a part of! Our prayer every day is for faith and wisdom. Wisdom to navigate a situation that at times over the past month and a half has changed by the day and even the hour, and prayers for our team - an incredible group of people that work with us that are being devastated by our business having to implement emergency economic disaster measures like layoffs and suspension of services, etc. We have faith that a business that was fully booked and growing, hiring, training, developing new menus, reinvesting it itself, and serving hundreds and even thousands of people in any given week only 6 weeks ago!!! ...will rebound, will somehow navigate through, and will make it to the other side of this. Sincerely, James “Rev” Guill Southside Food Solutions, LLC Owner / Member

  • In the first hour and a half we were out of all beers and in the 2 hour we were out of bourbon and vodka. This was a 5 hour reception we paid extra for 2 bartenders and only 1 was serving the first half hour which is crucial at a wedding with 130+ guests. We were told the manager was working on getting more beer but it never came. I don't believe there was any attempt to go and purchase beer. A couple of cases at the grocery store may have helped.
