To recant 4/9/2010

My original post was written six months ago, which was nearly one year after I stopped utilizing Sophisticated Soirees. Although my comments were, indeed, my experience with this company, the wording I used comes off as mean spirited, for which I apologize. According to the post following mine, they seem to be a good match for clients that have different needs than I. more

Fabulous!! Best Catering in Richmond Metro Area!!!! 2/10/2010

Read two other reviews and could not disagree more with them. They have an agenda other than an honest review. Used Andrea and her team at Sophisticated Soirees for several events over the last two years with perfect results every time. Events from 150 guests for a sit-down black tie dinner to small cocktail parties for 25 have all been beautifully planned and flawlessly executed. You can't do better! Pros: Responsive, creative, great foods & fine service Cons: N/A more

Stay Away...Very, very FAR AWAY! 11/22/2009

I used them after they bought Leslie Stack's FABULOUS business, Complete Catering. I use a caterer 2-3 times a week for work purposes... I found the management to be IDIOTS... They always had an excuse for foul-ups! My favorite was the night they served Pork Barbeque with no buns, coleslaw that was made with salt (instead of sugar), wild rice (100% wild rice, not pilaf!) and pickled beets as the vegetable. Andrea was too busy planning weddings to care that she lost an account. Oh, and then there is the time that I ordered bagged dinners -and- got huge boxes of separate sandwiches, fruit, etc. ....Not exactly a meal you could grab and go with. And, NOT ONCE did Andrea follow up or even show her face to one of our events. Just stay away! DO NOT USE ANDREA!! soireehater's story is similar to mine -and- others that I know who have used this establishment. I just wish I could leave a ""zero"" star rating, instead of even giving her credit for one star! Pros: There are none for the management. The delivery driver ++! Cons: Big Talk, Does NOT deliver what they promise. more

Makes you just want to get a lawyer 7/8/2009

First, we talked to Andrea asking for a menu that left us with $30 a plate. Then the day before my sisters wedding comes, and instead of Andrea, she sent Steve. And he came with the first, not revised menu that had the menu at $40 a plate. So we changed it AGAIN!! Then the wedding comes. I go to ask them to start serving the cocktail hour food and half an hour later they are not serving anything. OHH and not to metion they brought the cake out in 90 degree weather when i told them not to so I had to bring it back inside. So back to the cocktail hour, and their respond was ""there is no one in the tent to serve food to"" well DUHH cocktail hour isn't suppose to be in the tent. they were suppose to pass around wine and no they didn't people had to walk up to the bar.. HORRIBLE!!! then, half way thru the reception, i go to the bar to get a drink, and the servers said they only have one bottle of champange left.. WELL they were not suppose to serve champange until the toast anyways. so lovely, one bottle left. just peachy. then after the wedding, my sister goes in to change into her going away outfit, and Steve tries to charge her the $40 a plate price. so we had a despute about that. Then they threw away over half of the food. we were going to take it home because we paid for it but no they threw it away without even asking. so the next day we tried to call them, no answer, weeks go by no response to our calls or emails. THEN they try to charge us more because the servers stayed longer than 11. EXCUSE ME? they left at 10:00. the frickin liars. i will never NEVER go back to these horrible people. they still havnt emailed back AND THEY STOLE OUR FORKS!!!!! Pros: Haha, you kidding me? Cons: Horrible Communication, Dry Food, Won't respond to anything more
