  • Courtesy of my husband: The food was spectacular, and surprisingly the vegetarian option was one of the biggest hits. From start to finish the meal was spectacular. My wife and I ate first to allow us time to take pictures. The salad was already at our seats, the staff worked hard to keep us fed and watered. We had a difficult time making up our minds on which meal to get, so we had them divide up the three meals: filet mignon, roasted branzino, and the acorn squash onto two plates. We knew we weren't the type of people to not eat at our own wedding, so thank you Groovin' Gourmet for making sure we ate.

  • The food is fantastic, and working with Alaina made planning my wedding so easy. Could not be happier I went with them for my wedding. Alaina virtually doubled as my planner, making sure everything was being taken care of and helping me make all the small decisions when I wasn’t sure. The food was absolutely fantastic, we got many compliments after on the food and decor (most of which was from Groovin).

  • From start to finish Alaina Hall was incredible to work with. We left our initial meeting with Alaina feeling like we won the jackpot - booking someone with so much experience, knowledge and professionalism. Enough can't be said about how easy to work with, honest, and helpful she was throughout the whole process. Also, being in touch was effortless and making payments was simple. On top of having a great point of contact for all things food, linens, set-up, tear down, and staff- the food was AMAZING. For days after the wedding we had people texting us that it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding. Everyone felt very well taken care of and we couldn't have been happier with how delicious everything was.

  • I had an amazing experience working with Alaina for my wedding. Fortunately I had the chance to meet Alaina long before the final walk through, so really it felt like I was just working with a friend. She was very organized and responsive and I was comfortable bouncing ideas and questions off of her. Day of the wedding, the experience was wonderful. Our guests loved the food! The whole team made the wedding day flawless - and I am forever grateful!

  • The food was great and the staff is great to work with Amanda and Wayne were always on top of everything. The staff was great at the reception they were professional and very friendly.

  • I really enjoyed working with Groovin Gourmets for our wedding reception. My husband and I love food, and we wanted a more "personalized" menu than just standard wedding fare, so we tested out catering companies by asking if they could make some of our favorite foods. Groovin did a fantastic job - they prepared our dishes for the tasting, and the chef Tim came out during the tasting to talk with us about what we liked and disliked, and made changes accordingly. Amanda never had a problem making changes to our menu and recommending amounts of food based on our changing guest count. Groovin also did our rentals and did a good job. Alaina gave us great advice at our venue walk-through and helped us finalize everything we needed. Initially, it was hard making an exact apples-to-apples comparison between the different catering companies our venue works with (it seems like they each included different sets of things in their initial quotes), but I did some fairly extensive research - Groovin...

  • Overall I was very pleased with Catering food quality, choices and professional service the day of the event. Alaina was great to work with during planning, menu selection and spent time walking through the event at the venue which I found incredibly helpful. Many guests commented on how delicious the food was, particularly the warm artichoke dip during cocktail hour ---highly recommended!

  • We got off to a little bit of a bumpy start with Groovin' - we went through 3 coordinators in a matter of 6 months, with less than ideal communication between the hand-offs - that left us feeling unsettled about how much money we were spending with this company on what was to be one of the most important days of our lives. However, Groovin' won us over at our tasting, where both taste and quality shone through and Brandon (the owner) made a point of acknowledging our initial trepidation & assuring us that we would not be disappointed. We weren't. Angelica (our catering coordinator) and Tim (our chef) pulled off an amazing event, with food that left people happy, full, and a little stunned, saying things like "I didn't think wedding food could taste that good" and "that was the best food I've EVER had at a wedding!" Angelica worked well with our "day of" coordinator and the event staff were polite, gracious, pleasant and professional. Despite the initial bumps, I would recommend them hi... Read more

  • Grooving gourmet was an extremely difficult vendor to work with during the planning process, responses to emails would take days, sometimes weeks and I didn't get a bottomline total until like 5 days prior to the wedding. The tasting was delicious but the food was slightly different for the actual event. For example, we did the fried pork chops and for the tasting we tried a thin boneless pork chop and for the event they served a thick cut pork chop with a bone. Both were delicious but there was definitely variation in the tasting and event day. During the reception when they began to breakdown tables to expand the dance floor they put my guests' belongings on the FLOOR. All in all they food was delicious and the staff that worked our event was wonderful.

  • Groovin' Gourmet is excellent! We had chicken, beef, and tofu kabobs, rice pilaf, and salad for our wedding reception, and crab dip, hummus platter, wasabi and veggies, and peppadew peppers as appetizers. Yum! We had just worked with a different caterer in a different city and were disappointed that the taste testing food was extremely different from the final catering. With GG, though, the food was excellent at both the tasting and the wedding, as well as leftovers! Additionally, the staff at Groovin' Gourmet did an excellent job with planning, coordination, setting up the tables, serving, bartending, and clean-up; they had everything under control and the staff were very professional. The reason I gave them only 4 stars, though, was because we could have used more guidance pre-wedding. We needed someone to ask detailed questions about table settings, tablecloths, runners, napkin folding, flower displays, and what is needed at venues that we need to decide. Since we didn't have...

  • The food was delicious. But the planning done with Groovin Gourmet ahead of time was a challenge. There was so much back and forth and not much consistency from the company. Thank goodness they were able to deliver, because we definitely had our doubts. In the end, everyone was happy with the food and the day of service was spot on. We also appreciated that one server was designated to follow us around while taking pictures during cocktail hour so that we could have a drink and some of the appetizers!
