  • Angela Byers

    The meal was absolutely delicious and the presentation was beautiful... five years later my wedding guests still ask me who my caterer was.
  • Dee Gerstenkom, St. John's Bank & Trust

    Thanks so much for doing such an outstanding job for our 75th Anniversary VIP Party. The food was spectacular and the ice sculpture was stunning. You made my job so much easier and a lot less stressful!
  • Jim Voelkerding, Walter & Jean Voelkerding Charitable Trust

    The presentation was very nice and the food was excellent. Service was A++. Your crew accomplished everything beautifully.

    We needed lunch for our sales meeting, and they came through. The food was excellent, and their delivery was impeccable. The picnic baskets were a real hit!
  • Marsha Seymore, City of O'Fallon

    The costumes, the menu and the renaissance buffet were just perfect for our opening night of Camelot. It set the tone for the evening. Thanks for doing such a super job.
  • Anonymous

    Thanks for the great breakfast. Good food made it a lot easier for us to make it through our 7:00 a.m. meeting.
  • Linda Duranja, Western Union

    Our picnic went off without a hitch. Feeding 700 guests for 4 hours is no easy feat, but you pulled it off flawlessly - again! Thanks for everything!
  • Mark Bruegenhenke, Chesterfield Police

    The food was excellent. Lots of compliments. The chicken and ribeyes were terrific. Thanks!
  • Dale Poslosky - Modern Business Interiors

    The food was excellent. Your set up people did a wonderful job and everyone enjoyed our party! Thanks for doing such a good job for us. We will call on you for future events.
  • Linda

    Everyone had a great time and loved the food. We continue to be asked who provide the food, so hopefully you will receive referrals. The CAKE was the most memorable - the chocolate cake was so moist and delicious. Guests thought it was clever to serve fruit on each plate along with their choice of white or chocolate! And the punch recipe turned out fabulous too - thank you!
  • Jack Mortenson - Sales/Client Relations - Nephropath

    The food was wonderful. The Doctors all loved it. The office also was very pleased with the setup and presentation of the food. You guys are great and I will use you again next time!
  • Jim Hess - Pitman Funeral Home

    I just wanted to take a second to tell you how pleased we were to have your company cater an event at our funeral home. Your staff was very professional, and they left our facility spotless.  Please thank the two ladies who were here.  I will recommend you to any one who asks about catering at events held at our facilty.
  • The MiKecin Family - Joe, Pat, Mark & Maggie

    We want to thank you so much for the beautiful job you did for Joe's Purple Heart Ceremony!  The room looked stunning with the purple and white theme, along with the china and crystal.  The food was delicious! And the two servers were terrific! The relief I felt after talking with you only 3 days before the event was enormous!! Also, your generosity is something we will never forget!! Thank You a million!!!
  • Becky Sandring - "The Food Mom"

    The meal you provided for the Blue Springs South High School Jaguar Pride Marching Band in St. Charles served us well.  EVERYTHING DISAPPEARED like magic as the kids went down the food line and filled their plates.  We had the right amount of food.  Those who wanted seconds were able to do so, yet we did not have any leftovers! Thank you for great food, prompt delivery and the perfect amount of food.  We appreciate your work to deliver a hot meal to the Blue Springs South High School marching band.
  • Sara J Voumard

You gave me great advise and made me feel comfortable! Thank you again!!! I will def tell other people about your company!
  • Johnna

    "Your company was recommended on the Next-Door electronic board in Carlton Glen. I would absolutely hire you again. The pre-event planning went smoothly; the set-up was on time and efficient; the food presentation was excellent; the menu choices all received rave reviews from our guests. Best of all, I didn't have to spend days preparing food. I will definitely make Q my first call in the future."
  • Heather

    "I went with Quintessential because of the great job you did last year for us....and I absolutely would hire you again!
    The food is always above my expectations in quality, taste and quantity. Easy to work with and great prices. I have been recommending you to anyone and everyone!"
  • Kathy

    I'm very happy that Quintessential provided the food for Bob's surprise party last Saturday!  As this was the second time you've catered an event for us, I knew everything would be delicious! And it was! I'm looking forward to working with you again in the future.
    Dylan, the bartender you recommended, did a wonderful job.  From the entire food and bar setup to serving dessert, he was helpful in numerous ways.  Friendly and professional from the beginning.
    Planning a surprise party was, at times, stressful.  But there was never a moment of stress related to Quintessential.  It was, once again, a pleasure to work with you!
    Thank you.
  • Sharon

    Thank you! I would definitely hire Quintessential again. When it came to planning my parents' 60th anniversary party, I was thrilled to find you were available since you had done such a great job with food and service 10 years prior for their 50th.
    The food and service was excellent again. Dwayne was especially helpful and personable; we really enjoyed and appreciated him.
    I will recommend Quintessential to anyone needing great catering.
  • Bonnie

    Dwayne and Carol did an awesome job with assisting us for the event.  They had great personalities, real professionals, and Dwayne kept giving out the score for the Blues, which went over really well!!  A lot of raves on the food.  I learned about your company through the Chamber and had tasted your food many times before.  We also hired Quintessential for a heavy appetizer event we had our home a few years ago, and everyone raved about the food.  We would definitely hire you again!!!  Again, the professionalism and pleasantries of your staff, great food, and easy to work with.  Cindy was very helpful to us about cooking our ham, buying beverages, etc.  You guys were fantastic!!! Appreciate it so much.
  • Carol

    The catering was beyond our expectations!! The food was delicious as always and the staff was exceptionally friendly, accommodating and helpful. The cake was a showstopper and many guests took photos of it....and it was scrumptious to boot!
    I have enjoyed Quintessential at many events throughout the years with Ambassadors and Chamber meetings, so knew that you were my first choice!
    I would definitely highly recommend your services to anyone. I do really appreciate your flexibility and willingness to work with us on every change. And without your suggestions we might have been floundering!
    Thanks again so very much!!!  I'll be happy to be a reference for anyone that wants to ask. Could not be happier with our experience!
  • Dianne

     I choose Quintessential Catering because Cindy and I serve on the Foundation Board at the SCC and I know and respect her.  I wanted to provide an inspirational evening for my guests, because we were celebrating the arrival of Spring through music! In order for my guests to have a good time I needed to be relaxed. I knew if I hired Quintessential Catering the desserts would be exactly what I wanted and therefore, I would not be anxious or worried and could enjoy the party. Cindy has high standards and I was not disappointed. Cindy delivered the desserts on time and spent additional  time at our home making sure everything was up to her standards and the standards of Quintessential catering. My guests were thrilled with the scrumptious desserts and so was I!!
    YES! YES!  I was 100% happy with the desserts and so were my guests. I would hire Quintessential Catering again and I will recommend it to my friends when they are planning a party.
  • Jessica

    I would highly recommend you! Everything moved along effortlessly and your staff was amazing! Everyone was so kind and wanted to help in every way possible. We would definitely hire you again!
  • Sandra

    The food you catered for my Halloween party last Saturday was a big hit. Everything was delicious & looked FUN I chose you because you are a member of the St. Charles County Chamber.  Thanks!  
  • Linda

    I was looking for a caterer who could meet my budget, and I was familiar with Cindy's reputation. I would definitely hire you all again! Cindy really helped me stretch my dollar to stay within my budget and raise the money I needed for this fundraiser. She was also very helpful with food ideas. The food and the serving staff was wonderful!
  • Sue & John

    Samantha , we hired you because IHM had only a few catering choices. Of the 3 caterers you by far had the best menu selections. You were always prompt and professional with all of our questions. Staff at the wedding was very friendly. Table set up was beautiful and food presentation was lovely. The food was outstanding and we got MANY compliments from our guests. We would highly recommend your company. If you ever need referrals please contact us, Thank you so much for making the day wonderful !
  • Ashley - Cohn & Wolfe

    We were looking for local catering and saw you had great reviews online (Google Reviews/Facebook) Working with you was easy and streamlined. We had a lot of moving parts and all changes were made quickly and easily. Samantha did a great job handling everything from planning to setup and staffing.
  • Debbie

    We were referred by 2 trusted friends/associates.  You all did a fantastic job and I would not hesitate to use your service again.
  • Jackie

    I have used your services for many years including my wedding and have always been pleased with quality & amount of food and service. I recommend you to everyone!
  • Denise

    I hired Quintessential Catering because I found you on the internet with very good pricing and a good variety of food. I would Hire tis company again in a heart beat!!! The staff is wonderful and easy to get along with.
  • Jerie

    We have used Quintessential in the past and have been pleased with the food and service. I believe the prices for the items are reasonable and fair. I would most definitely use you again! The customer service was excellent and the staff (Samantha) worked with me on providing the best appetizers for the budget I had. I believe in finding partners who are willing to work with us and create a partnership for future events.
  • Esther

    I found you On line - through Yelp and general reviews.  The location mentioned that they would give vendor names, but didn't.  And I would 100% use you again!
    As an out of state client you were all very professional and very reliable.
    Diane was fantastic at the venue, working with the center when they said we could not use the "kitchen" area.  She just solved the issue and made it work.  She was a true professional.  She had everything prepared and ready for us.
    Thank you so much!
  • Kay

    I hired you because, quite frankly, you were the only catering service close by.  Not only would I hire you again, but it might bode well for you to be sure to let Pastor Austin know of your proximity to the church/activity room.  Perhaps he could send some business your way. Your staff was very professional and accommodating.  The food was outstanding.  One of the Hospice staff said it was "the best memorial service she had ever been to". Quite an accolade coming from one that has attended quite a few memorial services.
  • Katie

    We were referred to you by the Lake St. Louis Club House.  The food was very good and the service we received up until the wedding and the day of the wedding was great. I felt that I could always call Samantha with questions and changes and she would be willing to help. The staff the day of the wedding were all really fun and helpful. We really enjoyed this catering service. Thank you for helping to make our big day special.
  • Liddy

    We hired QC for out strategic planning meeting because: 1.We are assured that the quality of the food is top notch. And we have never been disappointed in the past. 2.We appreciate the relationship that QC has with The Child Center. 3.You were one of the preferred caterers for the Spencer Commons/Community Council. We will use QC in the future and appreciate all that you do for us!
  • Amy

    My Kentucky Derby party turned out really great and the food was amazing. I chose Quintessential Catering because I had recently had your food at an event and thought it was really great. I would definitely hire you again for future events. Almost everyone at my party wanted to know where I got the food and they really enjoyed everything. Thanks again for all your help and I look forward to hiring you again to cater future parties at my house. 
  • Jim & Lois

    Dear Samantha: You and your staff did an excellent job catering our church's 50th anniversary celebration on May 1st Special thanks to your chef for the very nice food prepared for the dinner. We hired you based on an initial phone call but mainly on a tasting you set up for some of our committee members We would again hire Quintessential for such an event. The very good food was the primary reason we hired you: the cost also fit our budget. Thanks again for a job well done.
  • Greg - SSM Health

    You guys did a great job and everyone loved the food! I will keep you in mind the next time we have catering needs. Thanks for everything!
