Amazing!    posted 8/26/2013

I was so happy with Jeff Thomas Catering for our wedding at Drees Pavillion. The food was hot and delicious. Our guests made it a point to tell us that their food was very good! I'd highly recommend Jeff Thomas to any bride or anyone looking to hire a caterer.

Flawless!    posted 7/15/2013

We worked with Jeff Thomas who provided catering services for our wedding at an outdoor wedding in Cincinnati. I can not praise Jeff's services high enough! Jeff is fantastic to work with. He gave us much of his personal time to plan out the menu and give us many suggestions for the reception. His experience and confidence were amazingly comforting to someone never having planned a party before.

Our food was fabulous. We wanted a cocktail party atmosphere where our guests could wander, socialize and enjoy amazing food. We had a great menu that our guests are sill raving about. They say that it was the best food they have EVER had at a wedding.

What many do not think of when picking a caterer is the quality of service that comes with the food. Jeff's team was awesome! They were professional, kind and service oriented. We had servers, bartenders and those who executed the evening seamlessly. Jeff provides only the best and you will most absolutely have a positive experience working with his company.

Perfect!    posted 5/21/2013

The food was tasted incredible and looked immaculate. The service was wonderful. Everything came together beautifully! Jeff was there with us through the whole planning process and it showed. We were completely taken care of! They even sent my husband and I back to the hotel with cake and two meals! I highly recommend Jeff Thomas and his team!
He also offers late night food! 11pm rolled around and they came out serving sliders and fries on the dance floor! It was perfect :)

Biggest Disappointment on the Wedding Day    posted 10/25/2012 (updated 10/25/2012)

Jeff Thomas Catering ended up being the biggest disappointment on our wedding day. Having great food and service was one of our top priorities and we were willing to pay for it. We heard from a number of people that Jeff Thomas is one of the best in Cincinnati and after meeting him booked him right away. Our wedding coordinator did say that there are caterers with better food, but his servers are the best. Jeff was great to work with during the planning and really listened to what we wanted. We were so excited to share the custom menu with our family & friends.
We thought everything went great the day of the wedding. The service and presentation of the food were tremendous. A couple of weeks after the wedding we noticed that not one person had commented on the food. Many people talked about the late night snack, which Jeff did not provide. So we started asking around and almost half of the people we asked said that their dinner was cold. They all said it tasted great, but it was like someone had just taken it out of a refrigerator. We gave Jeff this feedback and he was very gracious and offered us compensation. I was impressed until I got the check which was less than 6% of the total food invoice. After the fact, I read some reviews online and it looks like I haven’t been the only person with the warm food issue.

Exceptional From Start to Finish!    posted 1/22/2012

Jeff Thomas is incredible! From menu planning to service, Jeff Thomas exceeded our expectations. We used the stations, and I was origninally hesitant about this idea. It ended up working very well and created a nice party atmosphere for the reception. The food was delicious, and the servers were wonderful. Jeff even offered to do our centerpieces for the reception, and the final product was beautiful! Jeff is an experienced wedding professional who will take care of every detail for your special day.

Jeff Thomas Catering did an incredible job at our wedding. We LOVED our food. We were told by many of our guests it was the best wedding food that many of them had. Jeff came up with a delicious fall flavored menu.

Chef Jeff!!    posted 8/23/2011

Delicious, unique and professional. What more could you ask for! Jeff runs a tip-top business with not only his own expertise but a wonderful and friendly staff who is at the top of their game as well. As for Rachel! He is the best in the city, no doubt!

DREAM COME TRUE!    posted 7/14/2011

Wow!! what else can we say! Jeff was so amazing to work with. He makes you feel so special and so relaxed. He takes care of all the little things you don't think about, set up, left overs, cake, flower clean up, etc... The staff really is at your service! Jeff truly makes your wedding planning easier! And the food, so delicious! We had the dinner stations! Our guests loved the interaction and the food, especially the corn and blueberry salad! I would tell anyone looking for a caterer to use Jeff Thomas if you want a classy, fun, yummy dinner experience! He simply is the best! :)

I No Longer Believe the Hype    posted 8/9/2010

I'm conflicted while writing this because this caterer is strong in some areas and incredibly weak in others. We booked Jeff Thomas despite the steep price because of his sparkling reputation in the community. (Great friends of mine from Junior League have actually attended events simply because they found out he was catering them).

We were floored by our tasting. It was delicious and exactly what we wanted. In our excitement, we made the mistake of bragging about how amazing the food would be at the wedding. When the day came, we noticed the food was different-- from presentation to quality. The meat actually looked and tasted different, too. Several guests complained that the food wasn't warm enough, and that was actually quite embarrassing.

In all fairness-- Jeff is very classy and an all-around good person. His employees are very professional. I sincerely hope we just had a bad experience.

Absolutely fantastic!!!!    posted 6/29/2010

We used Jeff Thomas catering for our wedding last year and were very impressed with every aspect of service. Jeff met with us at our venue, Krohn Conservatory and designed a wonderful menu around our ideas and the different floral exhibits in the conservatory. The staf were excellent during the wedding and everybody loved the food and watching it being cooked right in front of them. We would highly recommend Jeff Thomas catering.
