Sherri with Olympia was our point of contact, super sweet, very professional and always helpful. The wedding day catering team was absolutely AMAZING. They worked diligently with us to ensure that the guests as well as the vendors were accommodated appropriately. Any request asked, they were happy to take care of. I wanted to take a moment to recognize Marlene, our banquet captain. Marlene, was a breath of fresh air to work with. Her demeanor was very comforting and made what would typically be seen as a stressful day seem like a walk in the park. She acted as a great leader and kept it all under control all while being professional, polite and super flexible. She catered to everyone’s needs and made sure that no one was without, vendors included. The food was excellent. I highly recommend this company.

Working with Olympia for my wedding cake was very easy and customized. I met with Debbie and we were able to taste the cake options and see examples. I gave her a picture of what I wanted to cake to look like from Pinterest and she made it happen!

The cake arrived early and all of my guests loved it! I chose the lemon creme cake with the whipped vanilla frosting, so good!

My only regret is not using them for catering, I would recommended them for the whole package to anyone looking!

Olympia was an absolute perfect choice for our wedding! They were amazing from the very beginning as they helped us choose the most delicious hor d'oeuvres and dinner for our guests. Darren offered advice along the way with decisions regarding the table setting and more. On the day of, Olympia's team worked seamlessly with our wedding venue staff at Nova 535 to ensure everything was perfect. Our guests are still raving about how great the food was. Choosing Olympia as our caterer was the best decision ever. Highly recommend! More...

Olympia Catering provides food, drinks, and snacks for a recent event that I attended. The food was delicious and every day was a different type of food. We were served a Spanish theme, Italian menu, American (chicken piccata and potatoes) and Tex Mex. Marlene was exceptional and made sure we had everything we needed!! More...

Our decision to hire Olympia was made after the first bite at our scheduled tasting. Sherri went above and beyond helping us create a delicious and memorable menu for our wedding guests. We appreciated her honesty when it came to certain dishes and trusted her judgement and suggestions on others. The staff was so professional and attentive the day of our wedding, and the food was absolutely delicious. So many of our guests continue to talk about how good the food was. Thank you, Sherri, for exceeding our expectations! More...

I don't know where to begin! Nearly two months after my wedding, I am still having people rave about the food! From the appetizers, entree, and midnight snack - everything was outstanding! You can't go wrong here. Everything was served promptly and hot! No need went unmet - the whole staff at Olympia was outstanding. They even went as far as bringing my husband and I a fresh, hot meal after we said our "hello's" to everyone! They think of everything! They are very professional, friendly, and dedicated to making your event go off without a hitch!

By far, the best decision we made was to hire Nancy for our day of coordinator. If you want a stress free wedding day, there isn't even a question! She is truly phenomenal. If anything went wrong wedding day, I couldn't tell you. Everything went smoothly and timely. I was never left wondering "What next?" or "What do I do?". I trusted her with a lot of the details of our day and I am so glad I did. She is incredibly experienced and has an amazing eye. She helped guide us every step along the way - menus, linens, ambiance, etc. Our wedding was so beautiful and enjoyed by all. I know for a fact that it had everything to do with Nancy and her team. Thank you Olympia and Nancy for making our day perfect!

Sherri and her team at Olympia are wonderful. Food was very important to us and Olympia delivered. We got so many compliments about the food and how great it was. We chose stations and were able to choose from dozens of options. Our tasting was amazing and we got to try so many options. Sherri even met with us and our planner for a walk through at the venue. We got our cake and desserts through them as well and Debbie was also amazing. They also were not overpriced. I would 1000% recommend them. More...

We had such an amazing experience with Olympia! They were beyond accommodating for the various dietary restrictions our families had and took good care when preparing the food. Every seated meal was hot and delicious! They even agreed to use my own recipe for the main dish! Every server provided was clean, polite, professional and efficient. I can’t say enough great things, thank you! More...

Olympia provided catering for the recent celebration of life we held for my dad. They were prompt in responding to all inquiries, provided a detailed quote, and showed up on time and prepared for the set-up. Everything was done professionally and with attention to detail. The event staff were extra helpful, and even helped me set up my table of memorabilia. I am truly grateful for the thoughtful and personalized service. More...

I was looking for a good quality catering services at an affordable price for my wedding. After much research, we decided to go for Olympia Catering for many reasons. Later on, I felt lucky because much of our vendors knew and had work with Olympia -- but what truly caught my attention about Olympia was their extensive menu options and the diverse cuisine offered. We have traveled around the world and eaten from Korean to Cuban food. We felt like Olympia could represent our relationship in the form of food. Our contact person, Sherri, was very sweet since the beginning. And in the day of, our servers were very, very attentive to our requests, professional, sweet and polite. They are a very busy company and that’s because they are the best. Well-known, extensive catering menu, long-standing history and professional with a price that can adjust to your pocket. Thank you Olypmia! More...

Olympia was an absolute wonder to work with for our wedding catering. Every piece of food from the appetizers, to the main course, to the dessert was absolutely exquisite. Additionally, Darren Olympia's head coordinator was amazing to work and coordinate with. He makes you feel completely covered and accounted for with regards to all wedding reception details not just the catering. You can tell that he and the entire Olympia team genuinely care about making every catering experience the best it can possibly be for every couple's most special day! More...

She was very helpful to make sure we were happy with our selections. We received so many compliments from friends and family about how delicious the food and especially the desserts were!

This staff takes care of everyone! I recently photographed a wedding and they not only made sure the bride and groom were taken care of, they also checked on me. They are all friendly, professional and the food, WOW OH WOW don’t get me started. Their Chicken Roulade is to die for. Will recommend them to all my tampa weddings. More...

We hired Olympia for both our wedding catering and our wedding cake. Both were a complete hit- we got so many compliments from our guests on how delicious all of the food was. It was served hot, quick and accurately. The cake looked beautiful and tasted even better. The staff was professional and so accommodating. They truly made sure that everything was above expectation on the day of and had the friendliest staff. Olympia is amazing! More...

Olympia made my wedding cake four years ago and it both beautiful and delicious. Well recently I hired them to cater my daughter's 1st birthday party and I'm happy to say their cakes are still fantastic! The smash cake looked like a sunflower and the other cake looked like a garden. They were so creative and beautiful. I received a ton of compliments on the look and the taste. They were awesome and I've been fantasizing about eating it again ever since. Courteous and prompt staff is also a huge plus! I highly recommend them. More...

I sought out Olympia for my own marriage celebration after experiencing their catering and services at a dear friend's wedding. Working with Olympia and Darren Diaz was completely stress-free and delightful. We collaborated with a combination of my ideas and his suggestions that made for, in my opinion, the perfect wedding reception. Our guests raved about the exquisite menu, the cake was incredible and gorgeous and the serving staff could not have been more lovely, kind, flexible and fun. Darren even took the time to tie my seventh grade son's tie and deconstruct/reconstruct my groom's boutineer! More...

We used Olympia Catering for our daughters wedding recently. The food was absolutely delicious. The staff was professional and friendly. The cake was beautiful. We have already recommended Olympia to several people looking for catering services. Thank you for being part of making our daughters wedding so special. One more added note -- all the guest raved about the food as well, we did not have one person complain about the passed Hors D' oeuvres, stationery table foods or the plated dinners. Job well done!

Olympia catered our wedding this past weekend and the food was amazing!

My favorite was the seafood pasta and my husband loved the oysters at the seafood station. Highly recommend!! More...

The food was amazing! Enough said! I hired Olympia for my wedding 12/13/15.
Nancy was our main point of contact. She answered all my million emails promptly. She was very nice and personable on the phone. She triple checked everything to ensure she had all the details which allowed me to rest easy. The food was amazing! All our guests were raving and telling us how they’d had 2nds and 3rds. The mascarpone mashed potatoes are to die for!
Debbie helped us with our wedding cake and design. Our cake was absolutely beautiful and equally delicious. I cried when I first saw the cake. It was more delicious than I remembered from our tasting. We had a lemon cake, custard filling, and buttercream icing. The cake was so moist. I wish I had more of it! The top tier is in the freezer now. I am tempted to thaw it out and eat it after only 2 weeks!
Tata, the chef in charge at our event, was amazing! She is so pleasant and more than willing to make sure everything is to your liking. She personally served my husband and I at dinner. Even during our tasting she came out and introduced herself and wanted to make sure the food was exactly what we wanted. Tata was just outstanding! The support staff was very professional and attentive. They brought food and drinks for the bridal party while we took photos. My husband is a picky eater and they was able to accommodate him by giving him a requested cheeseburger and fries, which he said was one of the best burgers he had ever had. We were given taken home meals for after the wedding and my husband devoured his second cheeseburger in the hotel later that night. I only wish I could have eaten more food!

Marlene and her crew catered our daughters wedding in Indian Rocks Beach last weekend and they were amazing. The food was exceptional, the Sushi bar display was incredible as was the taste, all the other food was also top class. But in addition to the food they helped with many other tasks, washed glasses, helped setup, cleaned up, and they were very attentive and always had a smile. It was way better than I expected and would recommend them for any event. More...

My daughter's wedding was almost a year ago and we still get comments from people about how delicious the food was at the reception! Our point of contact was Taryn Marquez. She was very pleasant and professional and made the process so easy for us. We live in Citrus County (about 2 hours away) and really didn't know how things would work out dealing with a caterer so far way. It was seamless! No one could have known that the food and servers had come so far. Everything surpassed our expectations! Taryn and the head waiter for the event travelled up ahead of time to become familiar with the venue and really made us feel like all details were covered. Debbie Aaron took care of our cake needs and really did an excellent job considering the distance the cake would travel. Finally, I must add that we felt the prices were very competitive and overall a really good value for all of the wonderful product and services we received! More...

I got married one week ago in Treasure Island, Florida, and my husband and I selected Olympia catering for our food service and our wedding cake.

Sherri Salsbury was our personal representative who took care of us from our tasting appointment, throughout our year of planning, up to the day of our wedding. She was so helpful in answering all our questions and ensuring that our priorities were executed. She returned every email and phone call throughout the year with excellent service and intention to help us plan our wedding dinner service. She exhibited great attention to our details, and asked lots of questions to understand all other aspects of our wedding - down to our colors, favors, and venue set-up. We did not get to see or work with Sherri on the day of the event, but she passed along all the info to the catering team who served us. On the day of and still to this day, our guests have be constantly raving to us about how delicious our cocktail hour passed hors d’oeuvres and reception dinner service was! The only issue we encountered was that our dinner service was slightly delayed as the time they had down for serving was 45 minutes later than what Sherri and I discussed/planned for in our timeline. Nevertheless, when I brought this issue up after I found out about it following the ceremony, the person who was in charge of the catering team immediately assured me that she would fix it and not to worry. We used the extra time to mingle with our guests and within 15 minutes our dinner service began seamlessly. Our food was delicious and best of all, the steak was cooked perfectly to medium rare as I requested! The catering team cooked a fabulous meal and took care of my guests. They offered to place party favors, pour champagne, and cut the cake within their provided services. Despite the one timing hiccup that occurred, this company and staff handled it without skipping a beat and we were back on track to enjoying a delicious meal before enjoying the dance floor. Thank you to Sherri for helping me plan all of this and thank you to the team who executed it all!

Debbie Aaron in the bakery personally took care of us from the time of our cake tasting session, emailing back and forth with us throughout the planning process, up to baking/decorating the most beautiful cake for our wedding! I could not stop visiting my cake table to gawk at my cake throughout my whole reception, and even now I’m going through my photos feeling so in love with my gorgeous cake! Did I mention it was absolutely delicious? Debbie made it easy to make our decisions, I sent her two separate cake images from Pinterest showing her that I wanted the colors from one pic and the texture/design from the other one… and she NAILED IT!!!! Thank you so much for perfecting this unforgettable piece of our wedding day, you brought the beach onto our cake and everyone loved it!

I just love this place and Debbie, who (I believe) is the owner. She made the most wonderful wedding cake for me last year, customized strawberry and vanilla custard. It was so good that previous wedding guests still talk about it. I’ll post a photo below!

She was so easy to work with and answered questions/concerns incredibly fast. This place is awesome! I plan on doing all future birthdays and events here.

Olympia Catering went above and beyond everything I thought I would get on my wedding day. On our food tasting day, EVERYTHING we tasted was absolutely amazing. It was so hard to narrow down the food that we picked. We had a travel-themed wedding, and Olympia went out of their way to present food from all over the world-our cocktail hour had 4 different appetizers from 4 different countries, complete with flags from said country. Our buffet line was decorated by Olympia, and included old-school luggage and other travel themed items. It was amazing. Our wedding was over 6 months ago, and people are STILL talking about how delicious our food was. We also chose to have our cake made by Olympia (which was included), and it was seriously the most delicious cake I've ever tasted. The baker made sure that our vision was brought to life-she included edible succulents. It was perfect. The staff was incredible and we are so grateful for everything Olympia did for us. Not to mention, the prices were GREAT. I highly recommend! More...

Gosh where to even start with Olympia. We used them for our wedding in April held at the St. Pete Beach Community Center and would highly recommend them. Upon booking, we were so worried the food that blew us away at the tasting would come up short when it was being prepared for 115 guests. It turns out we had nothing to worry about. Everything was fantastic - and my husband and I have pretty high standards when it comes to our food. We had the macadamia crusted mahi, the short ribs, and their signature chicken. Everything..especially the chicken and fish was wonderful and our guests all raved about it. Even the cocktail hour food was delicious. We also had them do a brownie sundae bar for dessert and although I didn't get a chance to partake, I heard positive things from our guests. Olympia was very accommodating when we said we wanted a pasta course and when we changed our entire menu! Sherri and the waitstaff were very accommodating to my husband and I on the day of our wedding as well. More...

I don't even know where to begin with our wonderful experience with Nancy, Olympia Catering and the MFA for our Wedding on 1/27/18. We had the most perfect wedding day and we definitely have the above to thank!

From our initial meeting with at the MFA we fell in love with the venue and knew we were in great hands with Nancy. We ended up booking the Membership Garden for our ceremony and the Conservatory for the reception. It was great having both spaces for the evening. As other reviews said you are required to use both Olympia Catering & Lundy's for bar and alcohol service but we were very pleased with both vendors. After looking at venue's outside the MFA with 15+ approved vendors for food, I thought it was very refreshing you used the in house teams. Olympia's food was amazing - people are still talking about how good the food was! We hired Nancy to be our Day of Coordinator - one of the best decisions we made! Nancy went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect and the amount of knowledge she has from the industry is amazing. She recommended several vendors for other things (DJ, photography, florals, etc) and we ended up booking several of her recommendations and they did not disappoint! I would definitely encourage anyone who books the MFA to hire Nancy as your DOC!

We felt everything surpassed our expectations through the wedding planning process and during our wedding day. We are so sad our wedding is over but so grateful for the team who made everything come together and the memories we have! Words can't express how perfect we feel our wedding day was and I am so grateful for the MFA team and Nancy to make our wedding inspiration and dreams a reality!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about how awesome it was to have Olympia as our caterer for our wedding! Not only was everything professionally handled from start to finish, their food is DELICIOUS! Guests were raving about the food all night and even long after our wedding. Sherri was our contact throughout our planning process and she really went above and beyond to make sure our needs and expectations were exceeded. The rest of the staff was professional, friendly and very attentive to our guests throughout the entire night. We also had our cake done through Olympia and it was beautiful and by far one of the best wedding cakes I have ever eaten. If you are looking for great value along with delicious food and friendly staff, Olympia is the caterer for you. More...

We were required to use Olympia catering per our venue's request, but that doesn't not mean by any means that we settled for them. As soon as we began discussing menu options with Olympia, they truly stepped up to the plate. Our wedding was a fusion (Indian-Western) wedding, and we wanted to be able to translate that into the food options for our guests. Olympia's chef created not only an Indian vegetarian entree option for our guests, but also a couple veggie appetizers as well! While they provided us with a couple options, we were able to choose a few and actually taste them at our tasting and make suggestions. My family loved the option of having some of their favorite foods, with a twist! Additionally, our catering captain introduced herself before the wedding, to reassure us that everything was going to go alright. From the tasting, we were pretty clear that we wanted to have a couple of appetizers set aside for the bride, groom, and the bridal party, in case they were missed during the cocktail hour. Luckily, they weren't, but our catering captain took special care to make sure that we still had one of everything on our sweetheart table for dinner. She even brought us our signature drinks immediately after the wedding, so we could toast with the bridal party. The cake was amazing too!

From our perspective, bride and groom, the reception went seamlessly. However, my mother stated that a couple of her relatives had their entrees mixed up, but no one complained directly to me, so it probably wasn't a big deal (Probably cause all of our choices were fantastic). Additionally, there was a plate that was dropped while everyone was eating, but they cleaned it up so quickly, it didn't even seem like it happened!

We, personally, did not use the day of coordinator from Olympia because we hired our own wedding planner/coordinator. We found that everything exceeded our expectations, except for a couple snags, they were great addition to our wedding day!

As soon as I met Nancy, I knew we just had to book with Olympia Catering and the Museum of Fine Arts St. Pete. She had such positive vibes and was extremely knowledgeable when it came to event planning. From start to finish, working with her was absolutely amazing. I wish I could get married again just to have another chance to work with her. She really made our day extremely special!! The food from Olympia was phenomenal!!! All of our guests are still talking about how they could cut their steak with a butter knife! Highly recommended! More...

I'll be honest, food was low on my list of priorities for my wedding. Frankly, I've been to very few weddings with above average food so I just thought it was not worth spending a ton of money on. Our venue required Olympia which was fine by me. They were afforable and had an extenstive menu to choose from. We decided to do a duet plate with steak and their signature chicken and I was completely blown away with the results. It is virtually impossible to cook 150 steaks right and every single guest we spoke with said theirs was perfect. I had more compliments about our food than I did about anything else at our wedding. From the apps to the cake everything was spectacular. You MUST get the signature chicken it is to die for. We took two plates home with us and I ate most of it that night after the wedding. Thank you Olympia for making our guests so happy and their bellys full!! More...

Our wedding was 9/15/17 at the Museum of Fine Arts in Downtown St Pete. I was honestly nervous upon contracting with the MFA as they only allowed Olympia but many of my local industry friends let me know that Olympia's food was wonderful. I could not agree more! Our food was AMAZING. Honestly it was even better than at our tasting. It has been almost a month since the bid day and we are still hearing rave reviews about it. Our server that night was so wonderful. The second we were called to get in line for food, she was walking towards us with (2) full plates of food for us and told us to sit back down and relax. She even made us a togo box with some left over meats from the stations. Nancy was quick to answer our emails and always had numerous options to provide us with. Our cake amazing as well. Debbie worked very hard with us to ensure they could create something we were going to love. And it was just beautiful. We saved our top tier and ate it the next day in celebration that the wedding was over, we actually ate it for a few days and it was still delicious. We will most likely end up ordering a small version of our cake for our 1 year anniversary - because it was really that good! The only negative that I have is that we lost around 20 people the week of our wedding due to Hurricane Irma. I understand that we needed to pay for so many meals per our contract, and I understand that it was no ones fault, I was just hoping they would have been flexible with us due to the situation. No one reached out to inquire or let us know there was another option. I also did not think about reaching out as it was just so hectic and we had to evacuate our home on top of trying to finalize things as every vendor in our wedding was affected by the hurricane in some way shape or form. We ended up spending close to an additional $1,200 and don't feel like we received anything from it. Yes we did get a togo box, but that was not worth that amount of money to us. Thank you again for everything, it was overall a great experience! More...

Best. Food. Ever! Not to mention the service was outstanding! We even had a special cake design to match my dress without the groom catching on :) Our guests still rave about how good the food was. I actually first had their food at a friend's wedding and knew I wanted to hire them for mine. Donna was professional and accommodating and familiar with our venue. She was lifesaver when it came to communicating with our others vendors to ensure everything ran as smoothly as possible. I could seriously write a book about how pleased we were with them. From the tastings, to the special ordered linens, china, matching chargers, to the cake. Highly, highly recommend Olympia! More...

Fantastic menus, taste, and employees! We did a personal tasting for both the food and the cake and we were blown away at how good everything was. It was one stop shopping. Donna was extremely responsive and they took care of all our special needs without missing a step. I highly recommend this vendor! More...

We were looking for a venue in the Tampa/St. Petersburg are to hold a wedding. We were not sure what we were looking for until our appointment at the Museum of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg and meeting Nancy Henry the Catering Manager. First we fell in love with the location, how could we not. Set in beautiful downtown St. Pete just a few steps from the water and surrounded by those beautiful and unique banyan trees. Nancy took us on a tour of the museum and filled us in on all of the options that we could have. She took as much time as we needed to have all of our questions answered and when we left all it took was a short discussion to decide that this would be the place. We scheduled the wedding over a year in advance which was necessary because it books up fast. We met with Nancy a few more times to go over the details and she supplied us with a list of vendors to try. We went with her recommendations and we are glad we did: Wonderland Florist, Reverend Rick Lackore Efficient, Grant Hemond & Associates DJ (Eric), Foto Box to name a few. All were beyond wonderful. At the food tasting Nancy let us sample a variety of different hors d'oeuvres and entrees, more than we expected. All of the catering is done in house by Olympia Catering and your guests get to tour the museum during the event.
We hired Nancy as our day of coordinator and are we glad we did. All we did was drop some things off at the museum the night before and worried about nothing else but getting dressed, hair, makeup and everyone getting there on time. If you decide to have your wedding at the MFA my main piece of advice would be to hire Nancy as your day of, she is fabulous and her taking care of everything and directing everyone will take all of the pressure off your shoulders and allow you to enjoy one of the most wonderful days of your life. The wedding went off without a hitch. We continue to get compliments from everyone who attended.

I could sit here and write 20 pages about how happy I was with the service I received from Olympia but their service speaks for itself... If you are getting married, hosting a corporate event, throwing a party or shower, or have ANY need for ANY food services... CALL OLYMPIA... Sherri is a Dream!... and the staff day of ... Ah-Mazing!... Tata and her crew run a tight ship all while keeping your guests warm and fuzzy... I am in love with my caterer and would recommend them to anyone at any time. Thank you so much for being who you are! PS... their cakes are to die for! :) More...

I can't say enough great things about Olympia! We worked closely with Sherri and she was fantastic from day one. Anyone who's planned a wedding knows how fast things add up, and Sherri was great at sending us multiple proposals and working with us until we found the right menu for our budget. The day of our wedding, we got multiple compliments from guests on how good the food was, and my super critical family had nothing but incredible things to say.

The day of our wedding, they were so accommodating and made sure we ate before our guests so we had time to go around and talk to everyone before the party began. They came and brought us drinks while we were taking photos and did everything they could to make sure our day was perfect.

I couldn't recommend Olympia more for your wedding or special event!

Olympia Catering did a fantastic job with our recent wedding at the Museum of Fine Arts in St Petersburg, FL! We worked with Nancy Cotto and she was the BEST! She kept us organized and made sure we got exactly what we wanted for our wedding. The food was delicious and we received compliments from numerous guests on how great it was. The food package also included the cake which was wonderful - and they made it exactly how we wanted it. We could not be happier with this vendor! More...

Well, getting ahold of the coordinator was a mission and a half but when we finally got ahold of her she was respectful and seemed to be helpful. The communication being an issue was a bit frustrating because we were 4 hours away. We would have to tell her to send us things or do things more than once which was quite annoying but in the end it all worked out well. The food at the reception was ok. The chicken was very dry and the portion was not enough as we had people complain that they were still hungry after the meal. Besides that, they did a fabulous job with set up and not disturbing our special moments. For the price we paid, we expected much much more. More...

Olympia's food is delicious! Their service is beyond what is expected. And their cakes are outstanding! I've heard many couples say they didn't eat at their weddings, but we ate plenty. As soon as the ceremony was over, the catering staff brought appetizers and waters just for my groom and me to ensure we were well-taken care of. They were so kind to us! I'm so thankful we chose the mFa and Olympia Catering. More...

Olympia was AWESOME! Before my husband and I really got into the throes of planning our wedding, we felt that there are three main components to a good wedding: great food, good music and an open bar! Olympia nailed two out of the three for us. Sherri was super helpful throughout the whole process, and prices were very reasonable. We received countless compliments from our friends and family about the food and bar selections. Oh, and I can't forget about Marlene who personally took care of me and my husband the day of our wedding, she was a lifesaver! I HIGHLY recommend Olympia Catering, you truly can't go wrong! More...

We were so busy, we barely ate much, however our guests and family gave great reviews! Olympia did have one employee that was designated to making sure we got plates of food and kept reminding us to eat - she was wonderful! She also delivered drinks to us all night. We were never empty handed! The food we did taste was delicious! They were a little pricey, but the quality of their food was set far from the other caterers we tried. We are very pleased with our choice!

We also had them make our cake and it was DELICIOUS! They didn't quite do what I asked for as far as the design goes (I had complicated design requests), but it was still beautiful and I didn't even notice until I looked at pictures later. The most important thing was that it tasted good and looked gorgeous!

I would choose them again for sure. You won't be disappointed!

The food tasting was amazing! My husband and I were blown away! The day of, the food was still awesome but nothing compares to that tasting! We also worked with Olympia for our wedding cake. Debbie was very nice and even though I didn't get to taste the cake, my husband raved about how delicious it was. They could not accommodate my request for a gluten free tier, but our guests said the cake was great! The cake was beautiful, and with some added flowers from our florist, it was just what I envisioned! Day of, the service was impeccable! The banquet servers were professional and kept everything in order! I would recommend them for sure! More...

Working with Donna Aguis was an absolute pleasure! From the moment my husband and I arrived at the first tasting, I knew there was something special about Olympia Catering. The staff was friendly and Donna proved to be very knowledgable of the menu options. I think I bonded so well with Donna because she is very organized and detailed (like myself lol)! Once we tried the delicious food and learned that the wedding cake was included with the catering, we were sold! It was such a relief to have the cake included and to not worry about hiring another vendor. The cake designer, Debbie, was also wonderful to work with! She was prompt in responding to emails and very helpful in designing our beautiful cake. I showed Debbie pictures of cake designs and also requested a special icing flavor that was not offered on the menu. Our flavors were white chocolate icing with white cake and a chocolate raspberry filling. Debbie provided a sample mini cake with our flavors to ensure we liked the flavors before the wedding. Debbie and her team made the most beautiful and delicious wedding cake I have ever seen and tasted! For our food, we selected four passed hors d'oeuvres and the buffet option with two entrees. On the day of our wedding, our guest kept complimenting us on the food throughout the evening! To this day, I'm still receiving compliments about how awesome our food and cake tasted. I really appreciated Donna's efforts in staying within our budget and providing surprise gifts the day of our wedding! If you are looking for high quality food and work with amazing people, go with Olympia Catering. Donna, thanks again for making our day wonderful!!! More...

Olympia Catering and Donna Aguis were an absolute dream to work with and made my wedding day perfect and stress free. From start to finish, Donna went above and beyond answering questions and getting me get to a price point I was comfortable with, and she was beyond patient guiding me on selecting the perfect menu for our guests. OUR GUESTS RAVED about the food and service. Olympia was extremely accommodating with our gluten free, dairy free and vegetarians too. Donna made the whole process easy, especially when I realized I would need linens at the 11th hour, she kept it stress free. She even helped me select certain parts of my centerpieces when I couldn't decide and helped me find options. By the time my wedding day came I had such confidence in her, I told her to use her judgement on what to do with certain decorations, sign in, and cake tables- and they looked perfect. The decor they provided on the coffee bar and buffet was stunning and was a complete delight/surprise.
My cake was picture perfect and exactly like the photo I provided. The staff was so attentive for my groom and I with drinks and food, neither of us were ever taken away from each other or our guests.
If you are looking for an amazing caterer who will take care of everything, HIGHLY recommend Olympia and Donna. Worth every single penny. I still have people talking about how great they were. The devil is in the details, I am so grateful while working full time and traveling non-stop while planning a wedding, I had someone who I could trust to not miss and guide me through every one of them. Thank you Donna and Olympia!

I am so happy that we went with Olympia for our wedding. I cannot say enough good things about the staff and the food.


We used Olympia for catering because they were on the approved vendor list for our venue, however, we also chose to work with Nancy at Olympia for our wedding coordination because of how wonderful she is. Nancy is AMAZING!!!! From the first contact I knew this was the vendor for me. My initial email to Olympia was at 3pm on a Saturday afternoon. I received a response from Nancy within an hour of sending my email. I was pleasantly surprised to receive such a quick response. Nancy followed up on every detail - even when I brought some fun items for the reception, but didn't know what to do with them, Nancy said, "Give them to me and I'll take care of them." I had so much to worry about that day - it was nice to be able to hand so many things to her and know they would be handled PERFECTLY. She thought of every little detail and made suggestions when we weren't sure what to do.

The food was displayed beautifully and tasted great. The Olympian Chicken is delicious! The catering staff was so great to work with. Tata thought of everything - she had a plate of hors d'overs set aside for us, and she brought us each a plate of food so we didn't have to go through the buffet line. The little things make a BIG difference when you have limited time on your big day. Nancy even made sure that we had a to-go plate sent with us to make sure that we had enough food.

I would definitely recommend Olympia catering for your wedding. I contacted a total of four catering vendors when looking for a caterer. Olympia far exceeds ANY vendor that I contacted - they were the perfect choice for our wedding.

I cannot say enough about our experience with Olympia, especially have Donna Aquis as our coordinator! The food is always amazing, and they make it very simple to plan. My best advise is to limit your number of vendors. We had Olympia take care of food of course, cake, and all linens, chair covers, and sashes. Donna also designed our Sweets table. We had the most amazing vendors and I wouldn't change a thing! More...

Wow. Where do I even start First I'll start with the service. I met Sherri at a bridal show and sampled their delicious Olympia Signature Chicken. It wasn't hard to convince my (now) hubby that they were the ones! The level of service we received was incredible. Sherri was there to help me navigate the menu and build something just for us. The day of the event Sherri made sure that we were completely taken care of by the amazing staff. Nothing was overlooked and I truly feel like our day wouldn't have happened without her. Now, the food. We picked some delicious sounding items and luckily had already tasted some of them at the bridal show. The day of the wedding our guests raved about the food. From the passed hors d'oeuvres to the signature chicken and salmon (even the veggies and potatoes were swoon worthy - per our vegetarians). I wish I could go back to that day for several reasons, if not JUST for the food. Also, I wish I could post photos here but I can't so I will just have to say that I have never seen a more beautifully decorated buffet. Sherri worked around our color scheme from the linens to the flowers and decor. It was absolutely perfect. We used their long family style tables and rented the chivari chairs. Everything came together so beautifully and it was thanks too Sherri and her team. Finally, our cake was part of the package and not only was it absolutely gorgeous, it was soooo good!!! I highly recommend Olympia. From beginning to end, working with Sherri and Olympia was hands down the best decision we made. More...

Marlene and her crew catered our daughters wedding in Indian Rocks Beach last weekend and they were amazing. The food was exception, the Sushi bar display was incredible as was the taste, all the other food was also top class. But in addition to the food they helped with many other tasks, washed glasses, helped setup, cleaned up, and they were very attentive and always had a smile. It was way better than I expected and would recommend them for any event. More...

We used Olympia for our buffet at the reception. I can tell you if you're looking for a professional staff that caters to your guests, they are it. The little touches they made were excellent. From going through the buffet line for us and serving my groom and I, to bringing the hors d'oeuvres to our wedding party first during cocktail hour so they could eat during photos, they were amazing. Did I mention the linens they brought for our Tiffany blue color scheme were perfect? Just an outstanding job all around. We will definitely use them again for future catering needs.

My only critique would be we didn't use their bakery department for our wedding cake, but instead went with another vendor. This was due to the lady during our cake appointment kept making comments about how everything we said was "an extra cost" and we felt a little uncomfortable with her demeanor. But, I'm sure she makes incredible cakes...just wasn't the right fit for us. Overall, Olympia is perfection and will do everything they can to make sure you're stress free during your event!

She was patient with our many opinions and always provided guidance when we needed it. She was very flexible with meeting with us especially with our busy work schedules. She met with us countless of times until we were sure about our menu. She provided us with different proposals to help guide our decision and was there every step of the way. Thanks to Sherri and her team our wedding food and catering was amazing. Our guests could not stop raving about the food and we had the perfect menu for every guest. The decorations and touches that were added to the sweetheart table were beautiful.

Where to begin?! We knew from the beginning that we wanted our wedding venue to be the Museum of Fine Arts in Downtown St. Pete - we expected it to be good but never in a million years expected the insane level of service and love we received from MFA staff, Olympia Catering, Bar by Lundys, Everence Photography, Wonderland Floral Art, Style Hair and Makeup, Courtesy Valet and Graingertainment. We were especially lucky that we made the decision to hire Nancy Cotto, from Olympia Catering working exclusively for the museum, as our day of coordinator. She was absolutely amazing and went completely above and beyond our expectations. Nancy kept a constant open line of communication up until the day of the wedding and totally exceeded our expectations when it came to our wedding day - some items were even a special surprise that she arranged to make our day extra awesome! The food from Olympia was delicious! And not only was our cake the most gorgeous cake ever, we received many compliments as to how good it tasted. We couldn't be more blessed to have the most amazing vendors as a part of our day - thank you a million times over for everything!!!!

Our wedding was at the Museum of Fine Arts St. Pete and had Olympia for our catering.

I worked with Nancy directly and she was absolutely amazing! She was always so prompt to respond to emails and always so honest! They offer a great package deal so you don't have to worry about all the little details, the per person pricing was great, the food was awesome, and the team on the day of the wedding really made sure my husband and I were taken care of the whole night. It really is relief to know you can just have a great time at the wedding without having to worry about a thing.

Like I mentioned, the food was amazing- we went with Filet, Lemon Basil Mahi, Free Ranged Chicken and Vegetarian options. We did assigned seating to help get food out faster for more dancing later. Nancy suggested that and it worked great. Everyone loved the late night mini sliders -- it was a big hit! Also our wedding cake was stunning!

We had our cocktail hour in the gardens and reception in the marley room which was so elegant and perfect for our 130 guest size wedding!

Thank you Nancy and team for making our dream a reality!

Olympia was very fleible with the amount of times I tried to rework the costs of the menu. They did everything that was asked of them and decorated to match my style perfectly without me een asking.

The food was amazing! Enough said!
Nancy was our main point of contact. She answered all my million emails promptly. She was very nice and personable on the phone. She triple checked everything to ensure she had all the details which allowed me to rest easy. The food was amazing! All our guests were raving and telling us how they’d had 2nds and 3rds. The mascarpone mashed potatoes are to die for!
Debbie helped us with our wedding cake and design. Our cake was absolutely beautiful and equally delicious. I cried when I first saw the cake. It was more delicious than I remembered from our tasting. We had a lemon cake, custard filling, and buttercream icing. The cake was so moist. I wish I had more of it! The top tier is in the freezer now. I am tempted to thaw it out and eat it after only 2 weeks!
Tata, the chef in charge at our event, was amazing! She is so pleasant and more than willing to make sure everything is to your liking. She personally served my husband and I at dinner. Even during our tasting she came out and introduced herself and wanted to make sure the food was exactly what we wanted. Tata was just outstanding! The support staff was very professional and attentive. They brought food and drinks for the bridal party while we took photos. My husband is a picky eater and they was able to accommodate him by giving him a requested cheeseburger and fries, which he said was one of the best burgers he had ever had. We were given taken home meals for after the wedding and my husband devoured his second cheeseburger in the hotel later that night. I only wish I could have eaten more food!

​My husband, Andrew and I had our wedding at the Kapok Special Events on 10/18/2015 and we were VERY satisfied with Olympia Catering and their amazing cake maker Debbie Aaron . From the start Sheri was prompt to answer all of our questions throughout the whole process. She was extremely personable and easy to talk to. I was really impressed on how Debbie was able to reflect the EXACT vision I was wanting for my wedding cake and how quickly she would respond to reassure me that the cake was going to be perfect. DEBBIE WAS RIGHT!! Everything was GORGEOUS because of this talented woman!! The cake was even BETTER then I could have imagined. Debbie knows exactly what each of her Brides need and want on the most important day of their lives. The food selection and quality that Olympia has to offer was OUTSTANDING!! Not to mention, the catering service itself was fantastic as well. The team was on top of everything and right on schedule. That being said, Andrew and I HIGHLY recommend Olympia Catering & Events to any couple who is finding themselves sifting through all the Catering Companies out there offering their services......ESPECIALLY if you are looking for quality food and service. I PROMISE that you will be VERY pleased with Olympia Catering & Events and their cake maker Debbie Aaron, as your caterer and the beautiful cake that Debbie creates. As the Bride, I felt very grateful and blessed to have found this company because they are TRULY AMAZING!! :0) More...

Olympia Catering was absolutely amazing!! We had a buffet style dinner with the signature chicken which was to die for! We did the tasting and planning with Sheri who was remarkable. She worked with our budget and accommodated my requests. I wanted a buffet style dinner but it was so much better than a table of food- the buffet table was decorated beautifully, the food presentation was lovely and their staff serves the guests. Marlene was our captain at the wedding and she was awesome!! She took such great care of my husband and I, as well as the bridal party and our families! Marlene brought us food from the cocktail hour while we were taking formal pictures and brought a plate to the bridal party! She served my husband and I dinner, brought us drinks all night, brought us our cake slices, you name it! She was an angel. The great thing about Olympia is that they handle the coordination of your wedding with the other vendors making it a seamless night of events. It's such a great feeling to leave your wedding in the hands of great vendors. Olympia not only blew us away with the food, but with their service and professionalism as well. Don't waste your time with other caterers in the area- you're in the best hands with Olympia! More...

Additionally, they provide the linens and tableware for the event as well as staff. Nancy really knows her stuff and I can tell she has been in the business for a while. She was able to provide suggestions about spacing for my venue (The Dali Museum) that I had not even thought about. Overall, everything was great and I cannot wait to continue to work with them!

Olympia Catering did an amazing job at our recent wedding with both the Wedding Cake and the Grooms Cake! I worked directly with Debbie and she has clearly been there for years and has invaluable experience with cakes, events, and weddings. We had a tasting that included my Mother and Grandmother, as well as several other meetings where we pored over Pinterest pictures and tweaked my ideas into a beautiful finished product. She was great about guiding us in design, color, and overall aesthetic of our cake and it came out wonderful! The flavors of the cake and filling were of great quality, the icing was delicious (as opposed to the fake sugar taste of fondant,) and the designs were exactly what I pictured. The cake design was elegant and we were also able to rent the perfect cake stand from Olympia. It was like one that I had seen in a magazine and couldn't find anywhere else. Because of such a great experience planning our Wedding Cake there, I decided to use them for the Grooms Cake as well. There were no additional delivery fees for the 2nd cake, the cost of the cake was nominal, and the cake came out amazing! It was in the shape of an Xbox One game controller with a nutella and chocolate filling. My husband was pleasantly surprised when he saw and tasted it. I would highly recommend Olympia for their wide range of knowledge and experience with Wedding Cakes. You can rest easy knowing that it will be of great quality and your guests will love it! More...

Amazing! Food, staff, and execution was great! Sherri was very accommodating and took the time to really make sure we got everything we wanted. Debbie was also excellent and the cake turned out beautiful. Could not be happier with this vendor. Even made sure joe and I had a to go bag of food before we left. More...

We couldn't have dreamed of a better caterer - we're seriously hoping for other excuses to have them cater for us!..renewal of vows every 6 months? They were on point the entire evening - not only was the food + cake exquisite (we received so many compliments!), but the service was above & beyond attentive.

SERVICE/PROFESSIONALISM: Impeccable. My husband and I felt like we were treated better than royalty. The wedding party was also never left unattended - we were always watered/beer/fed - this was critical in FLORIDA/JUNE. They set up all our centerpieces, favors, and helped us achieve everything we had envisioned. They were very in tune with every detail, to the point where they would have an answer for things before we even realized we should have been concerned - i.e. I made my own cascading bouquet, so prior to the bouquet toss, they created a small bouquet for me to toss using my extra flowers, so that I did not have to ruin my bouquet. They made sure we were not hungry - we had our food plated served, & to-go boxes prepared.

RESPONSIVENESS: It was difficult to get ahold of Olympia early in our planning process, but they were very organized and helpful in planning overall. We never had questions left unanswered or unclear. The responsiveness of the staff on the day of the wedding more than made up for difficulty getting in touch with them previously.

VALUE: As people who love cooking ourselves, we were salivating by the descriptions of each dish...just seeing ingredients like shallots & prosciutto was a good sign. The taste of the food exceeded description/imagination! At the wedding, it matched that of the tasting, despite being created on a much larger scale, & buffet-style instead of plated (& because they were efficient, the guest all had warm food!).

Cake - perfect - moist (but not wet/soggy), with fresh strawberries and cheesecake filling that tasted better than some of the stand-alone cheesecakes I have had! And beautiful!

I can guaranty that I did NOT have "Wedding Food" at my wedding. I was SO happy with the food that we were served. The cake was SO delicious. The catering staff was so helpful and were willing to do anything that I requested, even changing my menu just a month before. They met with me and made sure I was happy. I was so happy when people were talking about the food and how wonderful it was. I love that I was able to serve GOOD food! More...

Olympia Catering was so amazing on our big day. They were very accommodating with the menu and worked with us on our budget to get the most out of every dollar. Their prices were better than others in town and their food was just as great, if not better. On our wedding day they set up everything perfectly, my husband and I had our very own server, and the food was amazing. We had a buffet set up and the line moved very quickly. All of the staff members were friendly and professional. I HIGHLY recommend Olympia Catering & Events for your big day!! More...

LOOK NO FURTHER!!! 10 STARS!!!!
We got married at the Ca’d’Zan Mansion at the Ringling Museum, and I could not have chosen a better caterer for my wedding!! Taryn was absolutely FABULOUS!! From the food, the linens, to the wedding day timeline, she made the whole planning process a breeze. She was very prompt, patient, flexible, and organized. She understood my theme and was able to make wonderful suggestions that added that extra touch I was looking for. She truly cares about making your day special; and her and her staff will go out of their way to make sure everything runs smoothly.

The day of the wedding, Taryn and her staff were EXCEPTIONAL!! The ceremony and reception were set up to perfection! Once the ceremony was over, even while taking pictures they made sure the wedding party got to partake in the appetizers and drinks; and then into the reception my husband and I had our toasting glasses full and our plates already made so we had a chance to eat as soon as we sat down. The entire staff was neat, clean and organized- not once did I see a dirty plate left on the table. This company’s standards are TOP NOTCH and they present nothing but EXCELLENCE!!

The food was PHENOMENAL and we continue to get compliments regarding the food even weeks after the wedding! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND OLYMPIA CATERING and will definitely use them in the future!

One of the best parts of our wedding! This was the splurge and it was worth every penny! Our guests were blown away by the food and the service. The lead caterer, Tata, went above and beyond and felt like part of the family by the end of the night. During photos/ cocktail hour, she personally delivered appetizers to me and my husband, and she served us first when dinner began. The food was delicious! Caribbean style rice and beans, grilled veggies, macadamia-crusted mahi with watermelon salsa, stuffed chicken with an orange glaze.... the list goes on! The cake was also perfect. We opted for a late-night snack of churros... guests went crazy over that! If I ever need to cater a big event again, I'll call Olympia first. If you use them, know that you may have to be persistent with phone calls/ e-mails. I had to call after emails to follow-up and get answers to my questions. I didn't mind, but it was an extra step that took a bit of additional time. More...

If we could give Olympia 10 Stars we would!! We cannot thank Olympia enough for their incredible food and service for our wedding!!! Working with Sheri was as easy as pie (no pun intended!) and they truly made our wedding reception ABSOLUTE PERFECTION!! The bartenders and service staff was absolutely amazing, everyone had a drink in hand and never had to wait in a super long or slow line. They were friendly, fast, and accommodating, and especially helpful to our guests with challenges or special needs. They brought drinks and food to us and our wedding party while we were taking our photos during cocktail hour, and as soon as our dinner stations were opened, they delivered plates of everything to our sweetheart table so we could relax and eat our first dinner together.
Our wedding food was DELICOUS!! All of our guests complimented us on how good the food and service was, over and over again!! And as a bride, that is one thing you need to have a successful event! From cocktails, to appetizers, our stations for our main course, and our kickass wedding Cake, it could not have been better!!! They took in any special requests that we had, and made sure we were completely satisfied with how everything turned out. We HIGHLY recommend Olympia for all of your catering needs!! Thanks again!! – Lisa & Paul Karrat, March 8,2015

Olympia catered our wedding at The Dali Museum and we could not have been happier with them. We worked with Taryn to set the menu. Our reception was later so we went with all hors d'oeuvres. Taryn did a fantastic job coming up with a mixture of light finger foods and heavier station options. Before we began the photos, Taryn and her team brought us food and made sure we were taken care of. Marlene was our banquet head at the wedding and she was fantastic! She made sure my husband and I ate. She was very attentive to both us and our families the entire night. They packed us to-go boxes of all the food to take with us. Taryn and her team went above our expectations. More...

Olympia Catering if just the best hands down. I cannot tell you how many compliments we received on the food. The one that I agree with and got the most was “It was the best food at a wedding I’ve ever had.” The sushi table was a HUGE hit!!! We also had apps like grilled cheese bites and tomato soup shots, which were also a guest favorite, along with the mash potato bar!!! The staff is also top notch. They were nice enough to bring some apps to where I was getting my dress bustled and also sent us home with some food! I had my wedding at the Museum of Fine Arts in St. Pete, so didn’t have a choice of caterer but I would choose them in a heartbeat! I give 5 stars to everything else that was included in my package like the lines, china & chairs. I hired Nancy as my day of coordinator and everything was taken care of, organized, and decorated just how I wanted. …. Now to the cake Our wedding was on Valentine’s Day so we thought a red velvet cake was the perfect flavor and happens to be my husband’s favorite. He’s very picky about his red velvet and said it was the best red velvet cake he’s ever had. The cake was just as Debbie, with Olympia Catering, sketched it. It was modeled after my wedding dress and looked amazing. Usually wedding cakes just look nice- this one actually tasted like heaven!!! We got leftovers which we are still defrosting and eating. We’ll save the topper (if my husband doesn’t get his hands on it earlier) for our anniversary. More...

Olympia was amazing! We had the pleasure of working with the owner Darren Diaz for our wedding catering. He was so great to work with, so professional, and he knew exactly what we wanted and executed it fully. The food was amazing! We went with a buffet with their Signature Chicken, which was so delicious. We received so many compliments on the food. We also had ribeye steak, roasted potatoes, and veggies... All great! We also added a pasta station, which was cool because guests could customize their dish. Olympia also made our cake. I have them a picture of how I wanted it and they made look exactly like the picture. We went with yellow cake with cheesecake filling on one tier and red velvet with cream cheese filling on the others. It was soooooo delicious!!! I would highly recommend working with Olympia for catering and cake! More...

I could go on forever about how amazing Olympia made my wedding day! Beyond food even! Sherri did such a great job putting everything together. A month later, I still keep hearing from my guests how AMAZING the chicken was. They didn't just provide food service and linens, they offered to set up my personal DIY decor, including several Christmas trees!!

Sherri went above and beyond what I had even expected, to match my Christmas theme, she had set many floral arrangements, red votives and birch logs on the buffet table. I asked for a candy table instead of a grooms cake because my husband is obsessed with candy, all kinds. He even had specific candies he wanted her to retrieve, very specific, poor Sherri. She delivered, the candy table was a HUGE hit, after the open bar of course, haha.

I completely and totally recommend Olympia Catering if you want a hard working crew that will wait on you hand and foot like you are a Queen the night of your wedding! They treat you like you are the most important person in the room and you deserve it!

Olympia Catering is contracted with the St. Pete MFA, so you must use them.

Cocktail Hour in Membership Garden: Beautiful setting, but too small for 172 people. Hordervers weren't distributed properly by the staff. Many guests didn't get a single horderve. I hope they will work on this.

We had the filet & mahi menu. Filet was great, but had the wrong sauce on it. We requested the herbed butter but served the merlot reduction. This bothers me bc we printed menus that were at every place setting & it stated the wrong sauce. But, they served 175 steaks & they were all PERFECT! I tip my hat off to the chefs, I can imagine that's no small feat. The Mahi was dry for many of my guests, including my husband & I thought this was disappointing because a lot of our guests weren't from Florida & didn't have the best experience with this delicious fish. It would have been a nice touch of Florida flare had it been prepared well. PS- Get the potato tart, everyone will love it.

Cake was also made by Olympia. Debbie is so sweet to work with. She gave us many different options to choose from. Basic cake included in menu $.

The cake was delicious, but the appearance was disappointing. My cake was suppose to be 4 layers, tall and thin with metallic gold dots starting heavy from the top and becoming less towards the bottom. It turned out like a normal short, wider cake with yellow fondant dots on it. It was suppose to be a stunning cake and it was disappointing to us.

Other hiccups:
Ordered 3 vegan entrees and they would have came out with cheese on them, had I not told Nancy that vegan's wont eat cheese, prior to checking the menu.
&
I had a seating diagram that I went over with Nancy many times and we wound up with our wedding party table being set for 8 instead of 10 which caused some issue when we went to sit, but they squeezed the 10 into the 8 and everyone said they were fine.

Friendly staff, efficient @ dinner, fantastic banquet captain! Overall good.

Olympia catering was the best I could had ask for. Taryn was always there for me when I needed and worked with us from the very beginning. She was very understanding and worked according to our budged and what we wanted. I can email email her or call with no problems and if she wasn't available she will get back with me promptly. I picked a package that included the all the food plus cake, linens , and chavari chairs!
It made it easy to only deal with one vendor for all those things. The day of my wedding things went great and the food was amazing!!!
I still hear from my guest about the food. The service was outstanding as well. Every employee from Olympia was great! I My wedding day was the best day ever and part of it had to do with having Olympia as my caterer.
Thank you so much again!!!!!!!!!

They did a great job setting up the reception hall, and coordinated their buffet decor with what my style and decor was for the hall! It was just great! The servers that my husband and I encountered were excellent, he and I were served and the server came back to us to see if we wanted anything in addition. They got us drinks, and we felt like a king and queen! Would absolutely use them again! More...

Nancy went above and beyond the call of duty as the Sales Manager for Olympia and calmed me down, gave me wonderful advice and reassured me that everything would be great. She even played interference on opinionated and demanding family members. She provided amazing recommendations on food and linen options and even set up a very last minute tasting for my mom. When it came time for the cake tasting, I was unable to attend and Debbie did an amazing job with my mom at the tasting. She gave excellent suggestions and helped me make a final decision.
On the day of the ceremony I was blow away by the responsiveness of our banquet captain, Tina. During cocktail hour she introduced herself to my Husband and I and provided us with a plate of Hors d'oeuvre while we were getting our photos done. Tina made us feel like we were the only people that she was taking care of all night. She swapped our champagne for toasting to wine and beer (since we aren't champagne drinkers), made sure we got to-go meals for after the reception and even made a joke that if she wasn't able to wrap us up a meal that she would drive to McDonalds for us. She explained that brides and grooms never eat as much as they should, and inevitably end up hungry after the reception…She couldn't have been more right!! Those to- go meals were exactly what we needed later that night!!
Aside from the amazing service we received from Nancy, Debbie and Tina- the food was wonderful as well. Everyone we spoke to that night was raving about the stuffed chicken and the filet. The red velvet cupcakes were amazing and hit the spot for my sweet tooth.
On your wedding day, you don’t want to have a care in the world and I can honestly say that Nancy and Tina made sure that we didn't. Nancy and Tina were my angels and I know that night wouldn't have been the same if we did not have these ladies there to help.

Sherri was there for me making sure I get exactly what I want and making it all somehow fit into my budget!! yeah she's that good! What I loved the most was how they took care of me on my wedding day! I got my own personal waiter and She made sure I had something to eat before the reception, would make sure I had plenty of water and continually kept checking on me just to make sure I was doing OK. I loved that, the fact that someone was there taking care of me on my special day. The food was amazing, everything tasted amazing and my custom Wedding Cake turned out just like I had imagined it!!

I cannot say enough great things about Olympia!!! (Our wedding actually took place on 10/11/2014, but I cannot change that for some reason)They surpassed our expectations and truly made our wedding amazing! We used Olympia for our catering and our cake...they are the complete package! When we had our tasting with Nancy, Amy and Marlene, we knew we had to hire them! the food was amazing and delicious at our trial and was the exact same on our wedding day. They prepare the food on location - even the filet mignons were seared and cooked on the spot! I cannot count how many time we heard "best wedding food ever" and the cake was equally as delicious and beautiful!! Now, on to the service...we felt like royalty! Marlene was absolutely on point the entire night and so was the rest of her team. We never had an empty drink or water glass, even while we were taking photos. She even had drinks and appetizers waiting for us, after we finished with the picture taking. Our guests were also commenting all night on how amazing the service was. I could go on and on singing the praises of Olympia Catering, but the bottom line is that you will be so incredibly happy, if you hire this team of catering professionals!!!! Unbelievable experience!

Olympia Catering was wonderful to work with from beginning to end. Taryn, Alison, and Sherry were delightful and so easy to work with.

My husband and I didn’t even bother checking out other caterers after our sample tasting; that’s how good their food is! You NEED to get their Signature Chicken and their Pasta Station, no question about it! I wish I could rate Olympia higher than 5 stars because they deserve it.

Don’t let me forget about their wedding cake; it was absolutely delicious! We ordered the yellow cake with guava as well as the white cake with strawberry…YUM! Debbie, outdid herself and brought my vision to life perfectly.

Everything was flawless! We’re still getting rave reviews from our family and friends two months later. Best wedding food ever!

They were dedicated to making our daughter and son-in-law's wedding the best and it was! This is NOT your typical wedding banquet food. It is SOOOOO much more. Try their signature chicken. Melts in your mouth!!! They are the BEST!!!!!!!! Nancy, the coordinator through Olympia, helped our daughter and son-in-law through the process. We are very thankful for all of her hard work and dedication. She even came to the wedding. She didn't have to but she was there. Meant so much to us!!! A top notch vendor.

I loved Olympia Catering!!!! They did such a spectacular job with our wedding!!! They bring their own ovens to the event, so if your venue just has a warming kitchen it's no big deal, they can still cook on site. I had several guests say it was the best wedding food they've ever had! We did a formal sit down dinner where our guests were served their choice of cheese stuffed chicken or pomegranate merlot petit filet, and they pulled it off without a hitch! They offer kids plates at a lower price, which is great for those little guests and your budget! Their cake was also as beautiful as it was delicious and included in the price per plate, which made it super easy for us!!!

We rented our ceremony chairs from them as well as linens, chiavari chairs, and plate chargers for the reception and they were all beautiful! Our venue was booked the day before our wedding so I couldn't decorate myself like I'd expected!!! Olympia saved the day and set up/decorated the entire venue for us!!! I gave them specific instructions on where I wanted everything to go, and they did a spectacular job!!!

They even handled all my decorating needs even centerpieces and flowers. I am so impressed by every aspect of Olympia. They were very patient with me and my decision making process, met with me several times and even set up sample tables for me to look at with multitude of linen samples I requested. Olympia is worth every penny. I had absolutely no worries and everything was perfect. I am still hearing compliments from my family and friends on how great the food was. Best wedding food ever!

My daughter Melissa and her husband Emmanuel had their ceremony and reception at the MFA St. Pete and we could not have been more pleased. Olympia Catering is the vendor for the site and they could not have done a better job!! Nancy was our main contact and she was also contracted as a "day of coordinator", perfect choice. We used the garden for the ceremony, terrace for cocktail hour, and main event space for reception - three great areas, all different and a few steps to each for the guest.

The food was phenomenal! Hors d'oeuvres came out on time and hot and serves were always there with more. The bride and groom choose three unique stations and each was delicious and a fun way for the guests to make their choices. This is hard to execute, but Chef Stuart pulled it off with a bang and Lisa and her team did a fantastic job as well.

As most of my family are "industry people" I was waiting to hear their reviews - nothing but excellent. Melissa and Emmanuel said their wedding went just the way they planned.

Hats off to the entire team at Olympia Catering and the MFA venue for making my daughters wedding an event to remember.
Much Thanks,

Olympia Catering was FANTASTIC!

We did several caterer tastings, and found Olympia's food to be the best and not overpriced (making the decision easy)! We were nervous when we were switched to a new coordinator, but everything turned out awesome. Alison and Marlene took great care of us at our tastings, meetings, and wedding!

Alison was very positive, energetic, and flexible during the entire planning process. She hadn't done a wedding, yet, at the Lange Farm, but did a perfect job on the day-of. The buffet, pasta, and dessert displays were lovely. Marlene was an amazingly attentive banquet manager - she made sure to find out where we'd be during the cocktail hour in order to bring us food and beverages, made sure we sat and ate our dinner, and saved us a bottle of wine and one of each dessert item as well as buffet leftovers (for after the wedding)!

Many of our guests told us that they also LOVED our caterer; complimenting both their professionalism and the food.

We did go over our budget, a bit, on catering, but thought that Olympia was worth it! We honestly cannot thank them enough for providing such excellent service and food, and being our favorite vendor!

Olympia provided both the food and the cake at our wedding reception. Good food was important to me since wedding food often tastes like, well, wedding food. I wanted food that was actually delicious and Olympia absolutely delivered. We had a mashed potato martini station and our guests raved about it! It was a really fun addition to the rest of the delicious options we had :)

On to the wedding cake. My fiance and I aren't super big cake fans. I love dessert but cake generally doesn't do it for me. In addition to being beautiful, our cake from Olympia was SO good! We had lots of guests tell us it was some of the best wedding cake they'd ever had- it's certainly the best my husband and I have had!

In addition to being great the day of, Olympia was wonderful with the coordination beforehand. When I went in for my tasting, everything was ready and waiting. Sherri asked lots of great questions about the wedding to get an idea for tablescape for the food tables. It was a really fun experience altogether :)

Olympia Catering and Nancy Cotto are a perfect 10! We had our daughter’s wedding at the Museum of Fine Arts and had to use Olympia Catering for the cocktail hour and dinner. What an amazing experience we had. From the initial meal planning with Nancy to the day of the event, every detail was just as we had wanted. Olympia Catering provides a huge menu of selections. The food tasting event was exceptional with the presentation of the selections looking and tasting amazing… complete with a bottle of wine. I continue to receive compliments on the food from family and friends. We had initially planned to have food stations for the guests; however, at the last minute we needed to modify the plan and had a buffet instead. Nancy was wonderful in accommodating our last minute changes and knew exactly how to help us in our hour of need. The cake was also created by Olympia Catering. It was beautiful and again delicious. The staff was professional and friendly to the guests and my family. At the end of the reception, the staff efficiently assisted us in loading our cars with all our items. I thank Olympia Catering and Nancy Cotto for helping to make our daughter’s wedding so special. More...

My husband and I are live in NYC but got married in St. Petersburg, FL in February, Our reception was at The Museum of Fine Arts, which exclusively uses Olympia Catering. Since we were planning a wedding from afar, this was super convenient since we didn't have to make yet another decision. Even better, Olympia Catering has fantastic food and is very easy to work with.

Nancy Cotto, the Olympia representative at MFA, is seriously the best. She's been doing this for years and is truly a professional. Since we don't live in Florida, we had a very limited timeframe to do our tasting. She squeezed us in on a crazy Saturday afternoon as they were setting up for another wedding. We went with a family style dinner, which included a TON of food for the price. We had 4 passed appetizers during cocktail hour, 2 salads, 2 entrees, 3 sides, an ice cream bar and a wedding cake. Not only was it a good amount of food but it was GOOD food. It tasted just like it did when we tasted it in November. We went with the signature chicken and the grouper for the entrees and they were both delicious. I was hesitant to serve chicken to a bunch of foodies from NYC but it got rave reviews and everyone loved it. Our wedding cake turned out beautifully and the ice cream bar was an awesome dessert addition. My only complaint is that the menu is huge and it took us forever to decide what we wanted to serve!

Nancy from Kapok recommended Olympia catering. We started with Taryn, then Allison took over. From the very beginning we were treated like royalty. We were very impressed with the food tasting and cake tasting. We picked out the linens, chair sashes, dishes, centerpieces (we went with 3 tall crackled glass candles). We went with stations instead of sit down dinner. On the day we watched the precision and efficiency of the staff magically transforming the ball room into a beautiful wedding reception hall. Two weeks later we are still getting phone calls from guests saying how delicious the food was (the signature chicken is the BEST) and how elegant! It was the dream wedding that every girl hopes for. Thank you to Allison and her staff for making my daughter, the bride, feel like a real princess, and making all of us feel just as special! More...

Our wedding was this past October at Davis Islands Garden Club. Were narrowed the catering down to Olympia and another. We had a contact at both, went to tasting at each and got pricing from each...Olympia won hands down, really no comparison. First off, Sherri was amazing. I could tell from the first moment that she truly cared about my wedding day and that she would do everything in her power to make it truly the best. She was very professional, but also just a fun person. She answered all of my emails promptly and thoroughly (and there were a lot) and with a great attitude. She worked with us to get our menu just perfect and at a price that worked for us... but was still delicious and unique. She took our romantic nautical/garden theme and ran with it, styling the food tables to coordinate with everything else... even including beautiful fresh flowers, a vintage suitcase and lanterns. She also set up a lot of our personal decor and it turned out beautifully. Because there is no staff at the Garden Club, we really relied heavily on Sherri and her team. Well they hit it out of the park... Beyond the food being amazing and the decorations being perfect, they really just made sure everything went smoothly. Hor d'oeuvres were brought to us during our picture time... which was so thoughtful and then after our first dance plates of food were brought to us first, so we could eat. We really appreciated those touches. We also had the cake done by Olympia, and it was truly a treat. We did the chocolate with chocolate fudge filling..... SO YUMMY! It's the best cake we've ever had. They were also really flexible and let us do the top layer in carrot cake, my fav, which we devoured the following week. :) Sherri and her team also helped to take down and clean up, and again with such great attitudes. Really, I could go on and on, but I'll just say this... you won't be sorry booking Olympia Catering! More...

I held my reception at the Museum of Fine Arts, and so Olympia was our caterer by default. I was very skeptical that a catering company under an exclusive contract would provide such exceptional service. The staff was excellent, and went above and beyond to be sure that my husband, my family and I were all comfortable and well fed. The guests would not stop raving about our food, and couldn't believe that it was 'wedding food.' Add to this Nancy Cotto's accommodating and professional service as sales manager, and you have a truly flawless experience. My cake was beautiful, and they allowed us to completely customize our menu. We were very impressed and pleased with the entire experience. More...

I can’t say enough about Olympia Catering.. Our experience was wonderful. Our tasting was fun and deciding to use their services was an easy choice. The food was exceptional.. and I received so many compliments that everything tasted fresh and delicious. Aside from that the service that they provided surpassed my wildest expectations. They ensured that everything was set up the way I wanted and they even helped us pack our stuff at the end of the night. They took such care in handling our things and did it all with a happiness and friendliness that made us feel like we were dealing with friends instead of a vendor. Also the staff was so very sweet to bring out some of the cocktail reception food for my husband and I while we were taking our pictures… and it was VERY appreciated as we were starving.. so Kuddos to Olympia’s staff for that. Further, they ensured that all of our guests were happy and would come around to our table and bring us drinks and anything else we needed.. they totally “catered” to us. And just to top of their impeccable service.. they also packed up all of our extra food and cake to go.. AND made two special to-go boxes of meals for my husband and me to take with us, as we were so busy we didn’t have a chance to eat our meal properly. They were one step ahead of us at all times and thought of everything that could make our wedding the most perfect day of our lives! Thank you so much! More...

I am serious about my sweets. So there was no joking around on our hunt for a cake! Olympia Catering was our 3rd tasting, and the experience was the best. Debbie was responsive, knowledgable and kind; the paperwork and payment process was super easy. We chose cream cake, lemon filling and buttercream frosting - delicious.

On the day of, when my husband and I arrived to the reception after photos, my cake was beautiful and just the way we had imagined it. However, the next day, I was filled in on a little behind-the-scenes mishap: 15 minutes into cocktail hour, Olympia came back because they had realized they delivered the wrong cake a couple hours ago (they also did not seem apologetic, I was told). So they rolled the wrong one away - guests at the reception already, mind you, who witnessed everything - and rolled my correct cake back in. I had paid my florist an additional $80 to arrange foliage and flowers along the cake tiers, which she wonderfully did -- on the wrong cake. By party time, my florist had already left of course. So the foliage and flowers were moved - apparently hastily - by the Olympia staff (my coordinator had them do it because she did not want to be held accountable for dismantling the florist's work nor potentially disappointing me. I don't blame her!). When I look back on the photos, I can tell the difference. But all in all, we really had no clue when we stepped into the party; the cake was ultimately beautiful and delicious.

We can't thank you enough!

I will say that I am sad I missed most of the cocktail hour - I plan on having Olympia cater something of mine so that I can taste all of the appetizers again because people can't stop raving about them!!

Thanks so much - Michelle & Forrest

I really don't know where to start. Sherri and her team were beyond amazing. From our first meeting, Sherri was on the ball and totally understood what I was looking for. I loved the packages that they had and how you could customize them to fit your needs. The food at our reception was a huge hit! We did stations and everyone loved them!! The cocktail hour food was great as well. The hot items were hot and the cold items, cold. Our wedding cake was not only delicious, it was 100% to the T exactly what the picture that I gave her. Her team set up the decor, which was a lot, exactly how I asked. She was responsive to emails and truly a pleasure to work with. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Olympia to anyone having a wedding, party, or catered event. Honestly, so happy I went with them. They made my day a reality!! Thank you so, so much!! More...

Olympia was recommended to me by my planner for their great food. In particular, Sherri, was recommended because she has a good sense of style and great energy. I found this to be absolutely true. Sherri was incredibly kind, understanding of what I was looking for, and fun to be around for meetings and the day of. Her staff were enthusiastic, their appearance was clean and professional, and delivered excellent service.

It was difficult doing the contract process with Olympia. Sherri was out of the office and I was unaware. As I became anxious about settling the contract, a co-worker picked up in the middle which further confused what work we had done. I was happy when she came back and we wrapped everything up nicely. While the lack of responsiveness was irritating, the quality of the final product and value far out weighs the process. It's just something to be well aware of as any bride would get nervous in the time leading up to the big day. But trust in Sherri, you will be okay!

The day of, she made sure my husband and I were well taken care of, with drinks and food. That is so important on such a busy day! The food was good. The cake was amazing. I am still hearing complements months later.

Our cake from Olympia was both visually stunning and DELICIOUS! We wanted a bit of an unusual shape for our cake, and Olympia was right there with us to help us make it possible. Additionally, we didn't want to spring for the upgraded flavors due to our budget. At first I was afraid the cake wouldn't be as good, but even their basic flavors are mouthwatering! Many of our guests commented on the taste, and we enjoyed our cake leftovers for several days after the wedding.

Olympia was easy to work with and delivered a delicious and beautiful product! We would definitely choose them again!

All I can say is the FOOD WAS AMAZING!!!! I do not think I have every had better food at any other wedding I've been to. Using the station set up I think is the only way to go. The food is hot and guest take only what they want which mean less is wasted. They also made our cake and again it had to have been THE BEST cake I've ever had. Not only was the food good the table set up for the guests and food stations were also VERY beautiful. They looked exactly how I pictured them when I was day dreaming of this day and explaining it to Sherri who I sat down with. They handled everything I did not have to lift a finger they knew what they needed to do and did not need to bother me. Olympia is hands down THE BEST caterer in Tampa! More...

Don't know how it's possible..but our food looked & tasted even better than at our tasting! I can see why the St. Pete Museum of Fine Arts only works with Olympia. They were also flexible in adjusting the food packages so that we could give guests the options of fish, chicken, steak..and even vegetarian. Even with last minute changes, Nancy was very responsive in her emails. They also did our cake which was included in the package..no need to spend more for a cake from elsewhere! Delicious red velvet cake with the exact design I had drawn up. Ate the top layer at brunch the next day :)

We also had Olympia make our wedding cake! Debbie was great to work with and offered a fabulous suggestion for our cake flavor--LOVE! It tasted like strawberry shortcake! YUM! We gave her a picture of how we wanted the cake to look and the cake was perfect!

What a great catering company! But they do more than just excellent food! They were a one stop shop for me when I booked my wedding at MFA St Pete. Food, Cake, Lines, Plates and Chargers! As a special events manager of the 6th largest casino in the world, I am tough cookie when it comes to executing an event vision. So when it came to my wedding the stakes were high!
After meeting Nancy just once I knew I would enjoy working with her through the wedding planning process. She was always available and prompt on responding. She has everything on my wedding day just as I described.
My guests cannot stop raving about the food! They said it was the best food they had at a wedding and I agree! You can’t go wrong with Olympia (and Nancy). If I could lonely get their famous stuffed chicken recipe :)

We used Olympia Catering in conjunction with the Museum of Fine Arts as our wedding caterer. We were nervous about not being able to choose our caterer, but after looking at several other venues, we found that Olympia was one of the “recommended caterers” of every site we looked at. It was so nice to be able to get tables, chairs, linens, all dishware and glassware, all food, cake, and bar included in one package – saved tons of time not having to find separate vendors for all of these things. Nancy was an absolute delight to work with, and helped us get everything set up perfectly as we did not have a wedding planner. I left a box of table and chair decorations, guest table items, card box, etc. on Friday night, and did not have a chance to explain to her where everything needed to go. I was very nervous things wouldn’t be where I wanted them, but when I saw the reception hall for the first time I was blown away. Without any instruction, just my vision we discussed of how the room would look, she set up everything better than I could have imagined. We decided to skimp on the food so we could have a full bar, and just picked their basic chicken dish. People went NUTS over it! We had so many compliments on the food, and it was just Olympia’s basics. I would highly recommend them to anyone! More...

The servers were unbelievably attentive and so friendly!!

My wedding was not the first one my mom has had to plan. I am the fifth of five daughters and the last to get married so you could say my mom was becoming a pro at planning weddings in the Tampa Bay area. This was the first time we used Olympia. They were recommended by our site, The Coliseum in downtown St. Petersburg. We had one meeting with Taryn for a taste testing and were sold, we paid the down payment on the spot and from there they were nothing but helpful, kind, professional and a hit! My husband and I have been hearing from friends and family that the food was amazing; some were going back for thirds and that this food was the best they've ever had at a wedding (including their own!). Taryn was beyond helpful throughout the whole process, start to finish. She is organized, prompt, very kind and catered to all of my needs - like completely changing appetizers last minute. I would recommend them to anyone in the area and if we were to ever plan a party again, they would be the first to call! More...

The banquet Captain made sure I had a drink, save appetizers for my wedding party when we arrived, served my husband and I our dinner, and cleaned up when it was done. I was very happy with the service and the quality of food. Sherri, who was my contact, was amazing. She helped me with ideas on linens, food, and the cake. The cake was also delicious.

I am an out of town bride so I have to admit...I got a lot of catering recommendations for the FL area and I was TRULY disappointed with A LOT of them!! My husband and I could only fly to Florida at certain times and the only person who was super accommodating with our schedule was Sherri at Olympia.
From the second we stepped into Olympia - Sherri made us feel so comfortable and she was truly excited for our event! She was super organized, she had pictures and suggestions for our venue...she let me change my menu tons of times (and she did it with a smile - bless her heart!)
In the end - the delivery - EXCELLENT AND PERFECT!!!! Coming from NY - Northeast US weddings can be quite over the top so I wanted to make sure my guests knew that a Florida wedding would not disappoint. We ended up hiring Sherri for our Rehearsal & Wedding Reception and she and her team did an AMAZING job for both! Everyone RAVED about the food - the presentation was beautiful - the service outstanding - she handled everything perfectly where as I never had to worry about a thing. Sherri & Olympia - THANK YOU THANK YOU sooo much for making everything perfect - you guys were all outstanding!

Olympia did a phenominal job with the catering for our wedding! We met with Sherry several times and she did not hesitate a bit (each time we came). She was very imformative and had so many great ideas when we got "stuck" so to speak. We did a food tasting at there location in Tampa and had a great time. There food was excellent and fresh! The cake turned out beautifully and was to die for - so moist! Sherry was awesome to work with and took time and pride in what she was doing for us to make our wedding day a day we will never forget. You can tell she loves what she does! I would definatley recommend Olympia Catering for any wedding or other event you need catering for!

I worked with Darren in creating our wedding menu to incorporate touches of Ireland for our St. Patrick's Day wedding. We had some unexpected expenses take over and he was so helpful and flexible in working within our means. We had corn beef and cabbage egg rolls for the cocktail hour that were to die for!! Everyone was talking about them. The dinner was amazing and all of our guests, and us, were thrilled. The staff was so friendly and also helpful in setting up the venue the day of. We got our cake from Olympia as well which was stunning and delicious. We were beyond happy and can't wait to use them again in the future. We recommend them 100%! More...

Olypia catered our wedding, and it was incredible! All of our guests said it was the best "wedding food" they had ever eaten, and even more than that. I highly recommend the pasta station- it was a hit! Also, our event coordinator was great, and really catered to my husand and I, as well as our guests. More...

Olympia Catering is your best choice for a wedding caterer! The food for my March 2nd wedding was delicious and for a reasonable price. After the tasting I went to at Olympia, it was actually hard to choose which food I wanted at my wedding because it was all AMAZING!

Trust me, with Olympia, you'll get MORE than what you paid for. Taryn managed my wedding & kept in touch with me every step of the way. She went above & beyond to make sure everything was exactly what i wanted & took charge in a way that assured me that I could relax on my big day!

The service from Olympia made my buffet-style dinner feel like a gourmet restaurant was catering to our every need! The staff were so kind & constantly checked on us as a couple & our guests...we felt cared for in every way!

Thank you Olympia for making my day so special! XOXO, Victoria

Olympia Catering & Events provided catering for my 1.14.12 wedding at the Museum of Fine Arts downtown St. Petersburg. My fiance and I met with Darren numerous times prior to the big day to discuss logistics. Not only did Olympia provide catering services, they also provided tables, chairs, table settings, servers, etc. I did want chiavari chairs, and Olympia provided those as well.

We did a tasting a few months before the wedding, and everything we tried was delicious. We did stations rather than a typical buffet, or seated service. The stations allowed for more variety and gave people a chance to get up and mingle. We had a pasta station, NY strip station, potato station, salad station and coffee station. The night of my wedding I actually ate all my dinner....it was DELICIOUS.

I continue to receive compliments on how wonderful the food was. Olympia did an amazing job with everything. Their servers were by my side throughout the night refreshing my champagne glass too :-)

I suggest you check out Olympia!

The food and cake were great! I got lots of compliments on how good the food was. And the cake was beautiful! One of my favorite things about the whole wedding. I just gave Darren a picture of what I wanted and he executed it beautifully. The only downside is that i didn't get to eat any of it. After we cut the cake, the caterers were no where to be found. so it took a while to get the cake out to everyone.
Darren did a great job decorating the ceremony site, setting up our favors and other random jobs that I asked of him. The only downside was his lack of responsiveness.

Olympia definitely makes amazing cakes! Our's tasted great & looked amazing! They were great to work with over the months & always quick to answer whatever questions I had. I only has a small issue - we had a 3-tiered, square cake, & the tiers were supposed to be staggered (kind of like the bottom was straight, then the next was placed like a diamond & then the top was straight again). Well, when the cake arrived - all the tiers were straight...not a really big deal, it still looked amazing & I'm the only one that knew it was not right. We got so many compliments on the cake - I would still highly recommend Olympia to anyone! :) More...

Darren with Olympia Catering did such an amazin job on our wedding. He was very professional, returned my emails quickly, and had everything perfect on the day of the wedding. They provided all of our food, cocktail hour and wedding cake. The food was amazing and all the guests at our wedding where talking about how good the food was. I recommened their speciality chicken that is stuffed...it was amazing! :) The prices where very good for how much you got with the package. Our wedding cake was beautiful, it turned out exactly how I wanted it to look. We had about 4 different flavors that were delicious we had a raspberry filling that was my favorite. I would recommend Olympia Catering to everyone!! They were so easy to work with and everything was perfect on the day of the wedding! :) More...

I searched all over for a wedding cake that tasted good and was reasonably priced. I didn't have any extravagant requirements for appearance – I just wanted a simple design in white buttercream. You'd be amazed how difficult that is to find (especially the “reasonably priced” part)!

I was planning my wedding from out of state, and had limited time to search for vendors each time I was in town. I had already settled for a wedding cake from another bakery, because they were the most affordable on my list and made very nice looking cakes, but wasn't completely satisfied with the taste – it just wasn't that good. With time growing short, I decided to start my search over, despite having far bigger things to check off my to-do list before the big day. My mother found Olympia Bakery and put me in touch with Debbie.

Debbie was wonderful to work with! Since I was planning long-distance, we conversed via phone & email, and I sent her photos of cake designs I liked. We talked about options, design, and pricing, and everything looked good. She even accommodated my request to have my parents do a tasting on my behalf to “pre-screen” Olympia. I got great feedback from them and scheduled a tasting myself for the next time I was in town. We tasted several combinations of cake, filling and icing, and they were all amazing! I had trouble making a choice, but couldn't have gone wrong with any of them. I canceled the cake I had ordered from the original vendor, and put down my deposit at Olympia. I'm so glad I decided to make that switch!

The cake that Olympia made for my wedding was absolutely beautiful! It was exactly what I had envisioned. It tasted amazing. And it didn't break my budget. Olympia ended up being one of the best vendors I worked with, and I would absolutely recommend them to friends and family!

Olympia Catering and Events made the cake for my wedding. Every experience that I had with them was a pleasant one. My cake turned out to be exactly what I wanted and it was DELICIOUS. We went with the orange cream and the lemon cream. My husband also chose his wedding cake from Olympia. I was concerned with the design that he picked because it is very detailed, but I will tell you, it truned out AMAZING! I would highly recommend Olympia Catering to anyone looking for a great wedding cake. More...

She helped me get exactly what I wanted, was so nice and accommodating and very reliable, which really counts when it comes to wedding vendors. I highly recommend Olympia to any bride!! More...

From the moment I first met Sherri up until my wedding day, I was 100% satisfied will Olympia. Olympia did all of the food, linens, centerpieces and decorations for the wedding and for me being able to do everything with a reliable company made my life way easier!! When I first met with Sherri the only thing I had was a picture of the vision I was looking for and immediately she knew what I wanted...I was planning the wedding for about a year and like most brides you have doubts about colors and ideas but I could always call Sherri and she assured me that everything was going to be great and not to worry :) Our wedding day was absolutely beautiful, I wouldnt have changed a single thing! To this day I have family and friends asking about the food and how delicious it was.....and the decor was perfect, my vision had come to life and as a bride I couldnt have asked for anything more...I would highly reccomend Olympia to anyone planning there wedding, I know that our family would love to have Olympia cater any events or parties that we have in the future!

Choosing Olympia as the caterer for our wedding was the best decision my husband and I made during the planning process. We originally discovered Olympia by tasting their food at another wedding we attended. I could devote an entire paragraph to how wonderful everything they make tastes (not to mention the variety of menu items available), but what we appreciated most went far beyond the food. Olympia told us from the beginning that they could provide as much or as little of the "extras" as we wanted (i.e., we could use a separate vendor for the table linens, cake, center piece, etc. or use them for everything). We chose to simplify our lives by relying on Olympia for almost everything and couldn't have been happier. Not only did it all look beautiful and taste wonderful, but Sherri (our consultant throughout the entire process) took on almost a coordinator role in ensuring that our reception ran as smoothly as possible. She even had a doggie bag of some of the food waiting for us to take to the hotel later that night! We are still getting compliments from guests as to how much they enjoyed that night (a big part of it being the food). On a random side note, they offer a free wedding cake with a catering package! We were hesitant at first to get our cake from a catering company, until we learned that they began as a bakery. The cake turned out to be exactly what we had imagined. We can't thank Olympia (and Sherri) enough and would highly recommend them for anyones catering needs! More...

We weren't even going to have chicken as a dish and after tasting Olympia's signature chicken, we couldn't have our menu without it. The variety of menu options and the quality of every dish that we tasted and chose for our reception was truly exceptional! THANK YOU! More...

The company has been in buisness for a long time and it shows. They have the right people in place that pay attention to detail . We had no problems. We plan to use them for our next two daughters weddings when the time comes. Sherrie had all the answers. The staff at the wedding got the horderves out in a timely fashion and very professional. All the food and horderves were outstanding. The event was set on time and ready to go inspite of the weather that came thru befor the wedding great job. More...

Sherri and Olympia Catering did an incredible job with our wedding!! Sherri was amazing--on top of every detail, able to answer any question we asked of her, and totally organized. She was able to do anything we asked of her, something other caterers were not. My now husband is Cuban, and we really wanted to have Cuban food for our wedding. Olympia was able to do this for us, no questions asked. In fact, even all of his Cuban relatives told us the food was delicious--and they are tough critics when it comes to their food! We also got our cake from them and it was both beautiful and delicious. I even added a groom's cake at the last minute, and they did a wonderful job with it. There was barely any cake left over when the night was done!

They also did all of our centerpieces and table linens, and everything turned out exactly like I had pictured. It was incredibly beautiful. In addition, they had an hour to turn the room over from ceremony to reception and they were so efficient, they were done before the hour was even up.

Just the fact that they were able to do so much for us (food, centerpieces, cakes, table linens), which allowed us to limit the number of vendors we had to hire, was a huge bonus. My husband and I did all the planning while we were in medical school, so we loved anything that made our life easier. Sherri and Olympia certainly did that for us.

I highly recommend Olympia to anyone looking for a caterer in the St. Petersburg/Tampa area. They did a great job for us and I'm sure will do the same for you! The only negtative was that sometimes Sherri took a little while to get back to me. However, I always was able to eventually get a hold of her, so this really did not detract from my experience at all. I would use them again, no question.

We had our reception at the Museum of Fine Arts, so Olympia Catering was chosen for us and I'm very glad that they were. We worked with Darren for our wedding and they were extremely accomodating to a detail-oriented bride and mother-in-law.
The food was excellent. I highly reccommend their Signature Chicken, as all of our guests that got the chicken said how good it was and some have even been experimenting with duplicating the recipe. The appetizers were a big hit with our crowd... we had 3 passed and an antipasto station. And the cake was amazing! All of our guests said that they had plenty of variety and went home full.
But I think even better than the quality of the meal (which was incredible) was the quality of the service. Darren and his team have obviously done this many times and you should feel comfortable that they know exactly what he's doing to make your event run smoothly. He has a very professional and sophisticated sense of weddings... definitely ask him for his opinion (which he will only share if you ask) because he knows what makes a great wedding reception.
Also, I have to say that the managers at the Museum of Fine Arts Cafe are very top-notch as well. THey were also extremely accomodating to us and I would reccommend them to anyone.
The ONLY thing that I would tell anyone ahead of booking Olympia is that they are obviously very talented and very busy. You won't get a reply immediately from them but that doesn't mean that they've forgotten about your event. Any time that I did have to wait on a response, I always received favorable news back from them, so it made the waiting worth it.
Thanks again especially to Darren and the entire Olympia Staff.

Beverly, What a tremendous job you and your staff did for our daughter's wedding reception with the food, the cakes, the food setup presentation and service. We also hired our bartender and setup through you, who did an awesome job! Your entire staff was professional and so pleasant ... always cheerful and smiling and ready to take care of our needs. The master baker did an awesome job on both the wedding cake, which was absolutely beautiful, as well as, the groom's cake! Both were just divine to the taste buds! Debbie did a fantastic job working on the design with us! The Hors D'oeuvres and main course was simply delicious as well! We received so many compliments on all the food.

Olympia did all my food, linens and some of the decoration. They were very good, the food was delicious and the place looked awesome with all the linens. The cake was impressive, not only the look, but it was very tasty.
The servers were very attentative, and very professional.
The only issue was trying to get fast responses. I would recommend that if you go with Olympia to be prepared for slow responses to e-mail and messages.
Other than that I was very pleased with them.

We did have one small hitch because the groom's cake wasn't delivered on our wedding night but one quick email the next day and I had his cake and my money back. Debbie was very attentive and very quick to return any emails or calls that I sent her way. I will definitely hire them for any future cake needs. More...

When it came to the day of Sherri was sure to come into my bridal suite to be sure everything was going smoothly as well as was sure to be in communication with her staff to be sure my bridal party got appetizers and my Husband and I sat down to eat our dinner.

I cannot say enough about Olympia! I didn't have a wedding coordinator but with Sherry from Olympia I didn't need one. She was so wonderful and took care of everything the day of. We even had our own waiter assigned to our sweetheart table during the reception that made sure we were taken care of.
The food is outstanding as well! We did a plated dinner with a combination entree (their signature chicken and steak). Everything was so delicious and you got a ton of food. They also did the cake so it was nice to not have a seperate vendor to deal with for that. They started out as a bakery so their cake is yummy too!
Definitely use Olympia!!!!!

I wish they had a restaurant so that I could eat it more often! I received the most compliments on that part of dinner. I had absolutely no problems with Olympia.

They decroated the reception hall for me.....my favorite part. That was completely not there responsability. All I had to do was take all the stuff the day before and they took care of the rest. I am a control FREAK and I had not a worry in the world the day of my wedding or the day after. EVERYTHING was done! They also worked with me on some of the pricing. GREAT COMPANY!!!! More...

The cake tasting was excellent, they actually had a real piece of cake not a small bite size cube. The cake was just as good at the tasting as it was at the wedding. The cost was so reasonable that I almost fell from my chair when she told me the price. It was half of what the other vendors were quoting and the cake was 100 times better. More...

I love love love love love Olympia!! They were so perfect the day of the wedding, everything went off without a snag. I had been dealing with Sherri from the beginning and she was such a professional and incredibly sweet person throughout the whole process. I had several tastings, took many guests there to sample the food, she accommodated last minute meetings for me as I was from Chicago and even posted comments on my facebook page to calm and alleviate stresses I was having during the planning process. We did a buffet and ladies when I say buffet, I mean my guests got up for seconds and thirds, there was so much food! My guests and I have never attended a wedding where you could keep eating like that. Our entrees were the signature chicken (such a huge hit and chicken usually never is a highlight of reception food) and the mojo pork quesadillas with mango papaya salsa. The guests raved all night about the food, including forcing my husband and I to sit and eat our meal to enjoy it with them. Our to-go box to take back to our room was trying to be won by guests in a bidding war! :) The wedding cake was perfectly made to match the picture and the red velvet was sooo tasty! Food aside, the also were extremely helpful with setting up my centerpieces and just making the whole scene of the reception come together. They nailed my circular ceremony set-up and the gazebo type apparatus I rented through them was so beautifully decorated and installed it took my breath away. If you are looking for a caterer that is a one-stop shop for food, rentals and bar services, this is your vendor! I cannot stress enough that I was not bothered by a single thing the entire wedding, their staff had it all under control! Their wait staff was impeccable and so friendly! My only regret was losing my purse the day before and having to cancel all my credit cards and bank accounts and I could not properly reward them for all their hard work! From this point forward, they will be my vendor of choice for any catering services!

PS � My reception site vendor is such a huge fan of theirs because they completely take care of all clean up and leave nothing behind. They really take this part seriously and that is a huge help, especially if you have a damages or clean-up clause in your contract!
