Testimonials

Let us cater your next event.

[us_testimonial author=”Sandra, Kelly & Stephen” company=””]As I am sure you have been told on many occasions, signing a contract for such an important event is both intimidating and disconcerting. Although we have just begun the process of planning Steven and Kelly´s wedding, when we left the Normandy on the 21st, we were definitely satisfied in the knowledge that we made the right decision on securing the venue; our first step. The food and dessert buffet was wonderful and the employees were professional, courteous and helpful. Although we have attended weddings at The Normandy in the past, if is not exactly the same as when you actually plan the event. So, along with my son and future daughter-in-law, we would just like to say thank you, to you, the chef, and the entire staff of Normandy, for making it a memorable “first” impression.

We look forward to working with you, to make sure that our family and friends receive the same first impression for the wedding of my son in May of 2012.[/us_testimonial]

[us_testimonial author=”Tracie” company=””]On the day of the wedding, the food was AWESOME! It was wonderful! FIRST-CLASS all the way! Our pictures truly captured the notable – OUTSTANDING degree of everything. Everyone who attended the reception unquestionably loved the food. We have heard many positive comments on how good everything was and how nice everyone was. You, the entire staff, and the chef all deserve distinguished commendation because all of you are great! The teamwork of the behind-the-scenes staff did not go unnoticed and is appreciated. We have highly recommended Normandy to many people.[/us_testimonial]
[us_testimonial author=”Joyce” company=””]Thank your for the wonderful job you did on Shannon and Nick’s special day. We had so many compliments from our guests regarding the excellent food, elegant table settings, and the attention to detail from you and your staff. Thank you so much![/us_testimonial]
[us_testimonial author=”Kathy and Scott” company=””]We cannot thank you enough for making our day go so great. All your planning made our night perfect. We appreciate all the hard work you did and thank you so much. The night went so smooth and that was because of you. The room looked beautiful and the cake looked gorgeous. We cannot express how much fun we had. Once we got back, everyone told us that was one of the best weddings they have been to. That is in part because of you. You do a great job at what you do and it shows. We will never forget how perfect it went and we both thank you a ton.[/us_testimonial]
[us_testimonial author=”Julie” company=””]Thank you for going above and beyond at our recent breakfast and fashion show event. It turned out to be a wonderful even, in part because of the little extras you threw in. We both considered it a joy to work with you and we look forward to future endeavors.[/us_testimonial]
[us_testimonial author=”” company=””]We had our reception at Normandy and it was great! The food was absolutely delicious. I recommend them and make sure you get the Desert Room. With an entire room filled with sweets you can’t go wrong.[/us_testimonial]
[us_testimonial author=”” company=””]Normandy Catering was amazing! We had our reception at Patterson Fruit Farm in Chesterland. Normandy brought the buffet to us! Kathy was easy to work with and very responsive. I could go on and on about the reasons why I would recommend Normandy, but I will list the top reasons below: 1. The quality of food was exceptional! Everyone said that it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding! We had a buffet with salad, dinner roll, pretzel chicken, sliced roast beef, pasta primivera, roasted potatoes, and seasonal veggies. Delicious!! 2. No one left hungry! My family told me that everyone was not only happy with the quality, but also with the quantity of food. We even had leftovers! 3. The price was so reasonable![/us_testimonial]
[us_testimonial author=”” company=””] So far everything has been excellent. I am a bride that lives in Texas planning my wedding in Cleveland and Kathy has been great with helping with coordinate everything and being flexible with my schedule. Pricing is excellent value and bar options are awesome! Can’t wait!

[/us_testimonial]
[us_testimonial author=”” company=””] AND THE FOOD! The food was AMAZING! I always wanted Chicken and Steak Kabobs, not a traditional request for a wedding, and I told Kathy this, and the chefs came up with the MOST AMAZING dishes. Best Kabobs I have ever had, and all of the sides were DELICIOUS! They made us a vegan vegetable kabob plate for some of my guests too and during the food tasting, I debated if I maybe wanted to have it. IT TOO was delicious.

[/us_testimonial]
[us_testimonial author=”” company=””] Kathy also had the best catering staff I have ever seen. The bartenders were so professional, we provided our own alcohol for we found it more financially in our interest, but the bartenders Normandy provided were PERFECT. Also the wait staff was so friendly and curteous, it was perfect and I cannot recommend them enough! Go check out their food!
I have a friend who has a lot of dietary restrictions due to a health condition, and they make the food in a way that NO modification was needed for her to eat the dinner. She was so happy and so was I. This is the way to go!

[/us_testimonial]
[us_testimonial author=”” company=””] I used Normandy Catering for my wedding and they fitted my needs perfectly. Kathy the coordinator played a big role for me she let me days before my wedding take things to the venue for me. Everything was set up nicely, and the floor plan was exactly how I wanted everything to be. The food was delicious and very warm. Definitely I would use their services again!!

[/us_testimonial]
[us_testimonial author=”” company=””] Normandy provided the catering for our wedding on 9/24/16. They prepared all the food on site and it was cooked to perfection!! The wedding guests raved about the food and stated it was the best food at a wedding they had ever had!! Kathy is amazing at what she does and we couldn’t have been more grateful for Normandy and their amazing staff!!

[/us_testimonial]
[us_testimonial author=”” company=””] I used Normandy catering for my wedding this month. They were my caterer and provided Linens. They also set up the hall and tore it down. All the food was warm and delicious. We did not get a single complaint about any of the meals. Kathy was very easy to work with. I would recommend them.

[/us_testimonial]
[us_testimonial author=”” company=””] A high class operation with a business model of trust and customer service. From planning to execution to billing, they are a pleasure to work with. The staff is friendly, courteous, attentive to details and efficient. Their commitment to the broader community in generosity and care for Shoreline Show Choir and St. James Lunch Program in Painesville are more great reasons to plan your event here!

[/us_testimonial]
[us_testimonial author=”” company=””] Normandy did a FANTASTIC job with our catering! We gave them a particularly challenging job, too, since there were 14 different small plates, in five stations, and they all needed to be served at once. Our venue also does its own serving, which was probably also a challenge for them, but as bride, I did not hear about it (yay!). Pam was our event coordinator and she was just brilliant. She saved our butts, too, pointing out a miscommunication we had with the venue that would have delayed food getting to the guests by almost an hour. She was extraordinarily patient and kind — and soothing!! — especially given that I kept adding food and worrying about plates and glassware. There were nonstop raves from our guests about the quantity and quality of the food. Everyone was extraordinarily pleased. I would recommend Normandy without hesitation — completely happy with their food and service!!

[us_testimonial author=”Brittney” company=””]I just wanted to say a very big thank you to you and all of your fabulous staff who orchestrated a beautiful evening for my parents 50th on August 25. Everything went so well, I was in awe at how seamless everything went. Your staff is top notch! And you, well, let me say, I am humbled at how much you did! How you worked so hard to make everything just right, and how patient you were with my sisters and I during the whole planning process! You are a champ! Even after our car broke down at Party City as I loaded 88 helium balloons into our minivan, I expected at least 1 glitch at the party, which of course is bound to happen. But no. You and your staff saw to it that not 1 thing was out of place, and that nothing went wrong, not even 1 tiny detail. I am impressed.

Anyway, this is my long winded way of saying you guys are the BEST!!!!!

Thank you for an absolutely PERFECT evening.

[us_testimonial author=”Karen” company=””]Yesterday, we were doing video interviews with the folks in the teacher residency, asking them why they’re here, what they’ve accomplished, etc.

Whenever I ask them to name some of the best things about their week, they almost ALWAYS mention the food. It’s striking, because mostly we’re talking about deep issues like camaraderie, having time to develop a body of work, etc.

Then out of nowhere they mention how great the food is and how well taken care of they feel.

[/us_testimonial]
[us_testimonial author=”Linda” company=””]I can’t thank you enough for all that you have done in helping me prepare for Lori’s wedding! You are so professional and knowledgeable and your recommendations were all super! We received so many compliments on the delicious food. Also the servers were great! Thank you, thank you, Kathy! You were such a pleasure to work with.

[us_testimonial author=”Candy” company=””]You and your staff made me look good – no, great – so many times. I could not have done my job without you. It’s certainly not repayment enough, but I tried to instill in other employees the importance of the relationship with Normandy as a partnership. I am truly blessed to have you as a partner and friend.[/us_testimonial]

[us_testimonial author=”Linda” company=””]Thank all of you for the wonderful job you did for Jessica and Ryan. It was more than I could have hoped for and the kids were thrilled. The room looked beautiful, the extra candles you put on the cake and gift tables, the wonderful timing with everything, the service, and of course, the dessert room which people are still talking about! I will highly recommend you to everyone![/us_testimonial]
[us_testimonial author=”Jill and Family” company=””]You were great. You helped “fill in all the blanks”, made everything go so much smoother, and made us laugh with all your “wedding stories.” Wanted you to know we got tons of compliments-on the food, how beautiful the hall is, how delicious the cake was and all the desserts, and how efficiently YOU handled everything. People noticed and were impressed. We will brag about Normandy Party Center every chance we get![/us_testimonial]
[us_testimonial author=”” company=””]We used Normandy as our caterer at the Western Reserve Historical Society. The food was amazing! The first meeting we had with Kathy lasted very long since my now husband and I had so many questions. Kathy was patient and made sure we felt comfortable with all the answers. They also provided the linens for the reception. Everyone was impressed with the food. It was hot, and the staff made sure we were able to eat the hor’ dourves . We also used them for a donut bar for an evening snack which was also amazing! I would HIGHLY recommend Normandy catering!![/us_testimonial]

[us_testimonial author=”” company=””] Kathy was amazing to work with right from the beginning. She was so helpful and really made our planning for the big day super easy. When the day came , the team was professional, the food was delicious and everything happened/looked exactly how I imagined it. Everyone that attended had nothing but great things to say about the food and the atmosphere! =)

[/us_testimonial]
[us_testimonial author=”” company=””] This was a GREAT experience. We had Normandy cater our offsite wedding reception and they could not have made it easier! We had access to the venue the night before, and Kathy came out with a few of her employees and they set up all of the tables the night before. We gave her a sketch of where we wanted the tables, and I set one to look exactly how I wanted with the centerpiece I made, and the next day when I came back to glimpse it, it was PERFECT.

[/us_testimonial]
[us_testimonial author=”” company=””] We had our reception at the Normandy in Wickliffe and could not have asked for a better place. We were actually booked at a different reception hall and decided to change our venue and I am so glad we did. The food at the Normandy was absolutely amazing!!! I have had so many compliments on the food it has been crazy. “the best wedding food they have ever had” It was so easy to work with Kathy and she was so extremely helpful…we had a great time and would not change anything!! I highly recommend having your reception with the Normandy!!

[/us_testimonial]
[us_testimonial author=”” company=””] Great food and people. There is nothing they cannot prepare or cook to absolute perfection for 10 to 1000 people! I have never had a bad taste of food from Normandy Catering. I also highly recommend the Normandy Express for lunches and any outside events.

[/us_testimonial]
[us_testimonial author=”” company=””] This place is not only for catering but it is a party center as well. I have been here for a New Year’s Eve party and for a wedding reception and both times the food was excellent, the staff friendly, and the decor wonderful. I would definitely recommend people check this place out if the opportunity ever arises!

[/us_testimonial]
[us_testimonial author=”” company=””] Have never been disappointed with Normandy. In addition to the food being consistently excellent, the attention to detail is what I expect at a 5 star restaurant but rarely get these days. The service is always professional and attentive and the food is delivered hot and in a timely manner and has always been delicious. Presentation is also spectacular. This is all accomplished at a competitive rate. You won’t find a better caterer locally for your wedding or special event. I will even try them at my next Christmas party. Can’t say enough good things about this caterer!

[/us_testimonial]
[us_testimonial author=”Chris” company=””]Once again, please accept my thanks for providing the Art Therapy Studio with an exceptional event. We received many wonderful comments about both the variety and “deliciousness” of the food! Important to me also and worthy of note was the professionalism of the Normandy staff. You are indeed a cut above and I will happily recommend your services.

[us_testimonial style=”2″ author=”Paula” company=””]I wanted to thank you and your staff for making Saturday night so wonderful. Your staff were attentive, helpful and courteous.The food was delicious and the ballroom looked beautiful. We couldn’t have done it without you!

[/us_testimonial]
[us_testimonial style=”2″ author=”Linda” company=””]I cannot tell you enough how happy we are that we choose the Ariel Pearl and the preferred caterer Normandy. The evening flowed so smoothly and I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that you both work so well together. I could not imagine if we didn’t choose the preferred caterer? I saw the photos posted on Normandy Facebook through the website as I only have an Instagram account, the photos look amazing! I know they are honored that you choose pics of their event to display. They could not be happier with how good the food was and how beautiful the venue was!

[/us_testimonial]
[us_testimonial author=”Andrea” company=””]I wanted to thank you and your wonderful staff for helping to make our event a success. Your staff were excellent. I know we threw a number of curveballs at them and they handled them all.

Things were a little crazy during dinnertime (people showing up who were not supposed to, etc.). Again, your staff helped in every way they could. If we owe you any more money for the events for any extras we may have incurred, please let me know.

I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful staff you have.

[/us_testimonial]
[us_testimonial author=”Ann” company=””]Just a note of thanks for the great service ALL weekend. The picnic and the President’s tent were tasty additions to the Reunion weekend. And the seated brunch in the Great Room was wonderful. The service was great, the food abundant and all went very smoothly. Please also commend Felicia and Jan for their attention to detail and to our guests.

You are a delight to work with!
[/us_testimonial]

[us_testimonial author=”Veronica” company=””]Everyone raved about the food last night! The presentations were elegant. Absolutely wonderful as I had expected. Your staff was very accommodating and your bar tender was a hoot! A true comedian.

We’re all so pleased and looking forward to our next venue! Thanks again.
