Amazing food! Everything was setup and broken down quickly and cleanly. Our event manager (Carrie) was wonderful to work with and ever so patient with us when we wanted to make changes to our menu, answering emails in a timely manner and updating our quote when needed. I recommend doing a tasting if you have time. They take notes on what you like and don’t like about each dish and adjust it for your wedding day. The serving staff at the reception were friendly, efficient and quick to clear plates. The bartender was quick and had a good memory for who was drinking what. We were very happy with everything they did.Marisa
From first contact, we had timely and helpful responsiveness from staff. The food was beyond excellent with several guests commenting on this being some of the most delicious food at a wedding they have experienced. Our package was buffet style and essentially one of the cheaper packages, but you would never know it from the quality and presentation. And the portions/amount provided was more than adequate. Additionally, we had a few vegetarian meals. All of our veggie-lovers were extremely impressed with the meals provided. Overall, an excellent experience!Suzanne
Thank you so much for the lovely dinner on April 28th. Your professionalism and attentiveness made Elizabeths and Dannys engagement party a wonderful evening and so stress free for us. We look forward to working with you & your awesome staff in the near future.Earl and Rosemary
Dear Frank and Tony, We just wanted to take a moment to thank you so much for the lunch on Monday and Tuesday. The food was wonderful and it gave us such a nice break during our long tax season. Thanks!Dan Kaplins Office
Dear Tony, Thank you so much for everything! you were a pleasure to work with and really make our wedding a success! The food was absolutely amazing! Of the entire wedding the food was most commented on. The staff and service was also wonderful. Thank you!Caitlin Rooney & Neal Heartman
Frank and Tony, Thank you both so very much for participating in our Bridal Event. You had a beautiful presentation and the food was delicious! Thank you again we loved having you here.Judy
Dear Tony, When we hired you to cater our party, I wanted three things. 1. It was important to me that the food be delicious and different enough to be memorable, but not so unusual that our guests from the Midwest would find it unappealing. 2. I did not want to have to worry about anything….and when i say anything, I mean that literally. 3. It was critical that your execution be exquisite. You not only met my expectations, but exceeded them! The food was wonderful, I didn’t worry about anything, (and did nothing but enjoy myself during the party,) and your execution was prefect. I’m still receiving compliments on everything. I can’t thank you enough for the wonderful service you provided. I know we were not the easiest people to work with, but you catered to even our most capricious quirks. your price was neither cheapest nor the most expensive, but I am confident that you are the best. Thanks again.
Dear Tara, Thank you so much for a great dinner yesterday. My family enjoyed it. Everything came on time and it was prepared well and very tasty. My mom got to enjoy her family without being too exhausted from cooking for everyone! Thanks againAnnette Malugen
Frank, Wanted to drop you a note to let you know the lunches are going great. I’ve heard several compliments from our staff, so that is always positive. Alan Lee

We are indebted to you, Lucy and your wonderful staff for helping to make it so. You will forever be the only caterer to be found on my rolodex.

The reception feedback I received from our business leaders and customers was very positive. I heard many compliments about the quality and type of food that was served.

Tony and Everyone at Creations in Cuisine, Thank you so much for providing such wonderful food and service at our wedding on 4-4-09 at the Phoenix Zoo. We got so many compliments on the food…it was amazing! Thank you for helping on our big day!
Hi Tony. The event at Crossriver was a success and we have already realized three sales from folks who attended! Everyone Raved about the food, especially the Coconut Shrimp! The presentation was beautiful, and your team was courteous as always. It was nice to even see some familiar faces on you team from previous events. I appreciate everything that you did, and I look forward to having you cater our next big event! Thanks….Andy
Tony, saying that you and your staff did a wonderful job is an understating the fact. The food, it’s presentation, the service were exceptional. As an older couple who waited a long to marry, we wanted that day to be extra special in every way for our friends and family. I especially wanted the food to be spectacular an you delivered that many times over. Our guests couldn’t say enough about the quality. Majority commented about the steak melting in their mouths and salmon being the best they ever had. And I loved the pasta bar and desserts. And I am so glad, there were napkins at he dessert station with your name, so I didn’t have to keep writing it down for people. Thank you so much for making our day so special.

Frank and Tony, We would like to thank you or your donation to our casino event on October 22nd that helped raise over $2,000 for St. Mary’s Food Bank We had an amazing turn out. We received Compliments on the food, beverage, decorations and overall event. We appreciate Your partnership and look forward to a prosperous and successful new year.
Hi Tony, We had a great turnout Saturday night! We raised a truck load of toys for Toys for Tots. We chose to sponsor them this year and our friends and family were more than generous. It was amazing! As for the food and service, everyone was raving. My father-in-law is a chef and he came up to me during the night and said, “you’ve found your caterers”. Coming from a self proclaimed food snob, I was thrilled. Jan, Dolores and Bill were great too! They were on time, friendly and efficient. I really don’t think we could have asked for more. You truly provided what I asked for and I appreciate that. I felt like we had the right amount of food and the quality was great. I thank you and your staff for a wonderful, tasty, stress free night! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! We will see you next year for sure! Best wishes for a wonderful Christmas and New Years. Gratefully yours, John and Tiffany Gaston
John and Tiffany Gaston
Creations in Cuisine Catering, Thank you once again for the excellent service and food you delivered to our wedding. We received many compliments from our guests with regard to your company. We could not have been any happier with the out come and will recommend you for future events. Thank you!
WOW!!!! I could not have been more impressed by the work that Creations in Cuisine did for the Farr-Fuhrer wedding that was here at the Waterfront on Sunday! The food was amazing – so much of it prepared on site, and so expertly by Chef Basil! The presentation of the buffets was wonderful! The fresh roses made the buffet look so beautiful! The service was incredible as always- Lucy is a joy to work with! I love when Waterfront clients select Creations because I know that it is going to be as close to perfect as it ever gets!
Hi Tony. Thank you so much for arranging the great staff and great food for our wedding. Everything was perfect except the weather, but it was such a wonderful day, the rain didn’t even matter. Please thank Lucy and all of your staff who worked at our wedding. Everything went smoothly, so Amber and I could just relax and enjoy the evening without any worries. I do appreciate your willingness to work with me on the time line so we could start the buffet line right after the salads went out. That worked out well, and it enabled a close friend of mine who had to leave early to catch a flight still have dinner. I’m glad we ordered as many appetizers as we did. Our guests went through all of them, and the meatballs were a big hit. We had a few no-shows, so Amber and I got to enjoy some left over chicken and steak for a few meals. Thank you again for your assistance, patience and professionalism while we worked out the last minute details. It all turned out great! Amber and I would definitely recommend you to anyone who’s planning a wedding or large event.
Hi Tony, I just wanted to take a moment to personally Thank you and your wonderful staff for all you did to make the wedding on Saturday the perfect marriage celebration. I’ve been a little sad I can’t come back to do more events with your company. I know your efforts with bring you great success. Please keep up the great work as so many people enjoyed your food, style and hard work. Regards, Rachel
Tony, It was such a pleasure to work with you and your staff. Thank you all for making our event so lovely. The food and service were amazing!

Dear Tony, Thank you for working with me on this event. As an aside, I will be planning a presumable very large Open House for my law firm once we finish up the build-out on our new space and get moved in. As such I am hoping we will have the opportunity to work together again. Please know that I appreciate Tara and her responsiveness to my many, many questions. It was her diligence and approach, along with a wonderfully creative menu that made me finally decide to utilize your company!
Ann, Well, where do I begin? A big thank you for such a lovely morning. Charly and I had an amazing time and we are grateful to all who attended and participated. We thought it was really perfect and the flowers and tables were beautiful. Food was wonderful of course! Next event I will think of you! Thanks again!

Karen and Mark
Tara, this event was amazing. I can’t tell you how many compliments we had on the food, the service, the bar, you name it….I heard it. Once again, all very positive comments (and you know how hard that is to come by unanimously). Thank you, and your staff, for helping me make this event such a success. I was asked by two clients for your contact information and am please to say that I will refer you all without hesitation. Thanks again and as always, it was a pleasure working with you. I hope to do it again soon. Take care and keep in touch.
Ann & the Creations Team- What a pleasure it was to work with you all! The Maher/Fisher wedding went off with out a snag. The quality and just plain goodness of the food was amazing. Lucy and her team were so professional, invisible, efficient, and fun! I look forward to working with you again.
Frank, Thank you for helping to make Brittany’s wedding a success. Everyone was impressed with the food and the staff was excellent and easy to work with. I so appreciated your willingness to give Brittany what she wanted and stay within her budget. I’ll be sure to recommend you to future clients!
Tony, Thank you so much for Catering our open house …it seemed to be a great success. The selection on preparation of food was “Spot On”! Your staff was delightful and more than efficient….once everyone had left we looked around and it appeared as if we’d never had an event. You made it all seem effortless…..and, we know better!!! 🙂
Dear Frank and Creations in Cuisine, I can’t say thank you enough for all the time and hard work you put into Marcia Meyers Soul Food event. The Food was outstanding, the staff was positive and on top of everything, and we had very happy guests! It is rare that you find staff that is always smiling and positive! I know Marcia was thrilled as was I with the way everything turned out. I am looking forward to working with you in the future.
Tony, Thank you for making Art Pick a Complete Success. Never heard such raves about food from such a critical group. Everything looked fresh and appealing. And thank you for the catering donation for the silent auction. A very much appreciated gesture. Elaine

Tara, I just wanted to thank you everything was perfect! Your staff was excellent, and the decorations were outstanding! I have gotten several emails from people saying how beautiful the event was. Thank you so much and we will definitely use you in the future!
Tara,I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for a very well-prepared and well-received dinner for my son and new daughter in-laws’ rehearsal party. The food was excellent. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Everything was done on time. The only hitch was the appearance of my daughter in-law’s parents, who were delayed. But that did not quell the enthusiasm of the guests. The food was plentiful and everyone has been calling to thank me for providing an outstanding meal. Please tell your staff that if ever we are in Phoenix again, I would love to us them again.
Dear Tony, Thanks for making my husband80th birthday special. Everything was A+. Everybody loved the food (not surprising) and my husband loved the cake. It was a successful evening thanks to you. Actually couldn’t get them to leave. Bribed each couple with a slice of your great chocolate cake. Lucy was superb! Thanks again!
Tara, First I wanted to thank you and your staff for the fabulous food and service! Everyone at the wedding raved about the food. In fact, there was only a small bit of the salmon left, and we had that for left-over dinner Sunday! The staff was wonderful, and everything went off without a hitch! The heater company guy was GREAT at helping us figure out where to put the heaters and they really helped a lot. Again, thank you so much for everything. All your help and suggestions were greatly appreciated and you really helped make this a wonderful event! I would gladly recommend you and your company to anyone in the future!
Thank you so much for catering our wedding. The food was wonderful! Basil did a fantastic job. Our guests could not stop talking about how incredible everything tasted. The beef literally melted in your mouth! And I have never tasted a better Ceasar Salad! Oh, and the mashed potatoes were heavenly!! One of our guests even asked Basil for the recipe for the candied carrots! Needless to say we couldn’t have been happier. Thank you again.
Todd and Vickie Clausen
Dear Tony and the Creations Staff, I just want to thank you for making our daughter and son-in-law, Kanisha and Roy Hilliard’s wedding reception simply outstanding. The food was perfect, the service outstanding and you and the staff were a joy to work with. People are still complimenting us on the food. The late night snack of hot dogs and fries were the biggest hit of all. I have recommended your services to several people already. Thanks for making it a very special day. Javier and Romona Saunders
I booked Creations for a wedding I was doing back in September. First and foremost…the food was amazing. Just exactly what our couple wanted. More importantly for me, it was great to have Creations pull together along with my other vendors to make the event better than our couple could have imagined. When vendors and coordinators can work together rather than combatting each other, great things can happen. I greatly look forward to working with Ann, Lucy, the chefs, and the rest of the team again! Thank you Creations for a wonderful experience!!!

They fit right into our party and everyone loved them and they did a sensational job, especially considering the circumstances with the weather. I know that Creations in Cuisine Catering scored many points as many of the guests asked for business cards. The birthday cake was beautiful and delicious, Everyone was raving about it. Bottom line: THE PARTY WAS A HUGE SUCCESS!!!! And much of that had to do with your company and crew!
Tara, We went through a couple different catering companies before trying yours. We had not had one single complaint about he food or the service. Thank you so much! Training to You
Creations in Cuisine was a great partner and it’s obvious why the gardens has them as a preferred caterer. Thanks!!

Hi Tara, Thank you so much for everything you have done for our wedding this year. It has been so lovely working with you and you made the process exciting and easy! Everyone was thrilled about the food, staff, and set-up. It looked unbelievable and better than I could have ever dreamed of. Neil and I got to see the room before the guests and we loved everything. The food was great and it was great to have a bit of the appetizers and the meal. My mom and I loved the linens we ended up choosing and they looked so elegant in the room. I tried to thank the staff, but please let them know again how much we appreciated all their help and professionalism…they were wonderful and made the night run so smoothly. Sarah M

AMAZING!!!! I used Creations In Cuisine for my wedding in Scottsdale this October and they were fabulous! Tara Gray was outstanding! She worked with us from the very beginning, unlike so many other caterers who turn you away, adjusting the menu to fit into our budget. She was always prompt in responding to my emails and phone calls – which were numerous! I can’t say enough great things about her! I always heard horror stories of wedding food tasting so much different than at the tasting. However, this was not the case with our wedding food, it tasted better! We had a buffet style dinner and everyone raved about our food and how delicious it was! Thank you to Tara, Tony, and everyone at Creations in Cuisine for your hard work and superb service!
I recently attended business meeting in Downtown Phoenix and apparently these guys were the ones behind the amazing food I ate. Maybe it was the fact that it was free (that always seems to skew my opinion of food) but it tasted like someone paid a bunch of money for it. I had some hella tasty beef empanadas which had a nice chipotle flavor to it. I was also served some chicken in a tortilla that was oozing with what I think was pepper jack cheese. Everything also had great sauces to go with the food. My business is not big enough yet to cater meals for meetings but when that day will come I think these guys will be one of the first I’ll call. PS – If you can make a twitter feed where I can crash some more of your catered events and get more of those empanadas that would be great.
I used Creations in Cuisine to cater for my wedding reception and the food was fantastic, it was a few years ago but I can still remember the awesome ravioli dish we had and the chicken dish was very flavorful. I also love their shrimp cocktail, the cocktail sauce had a nice kick to it. I also went to a Christmas party that they catered and they had prime rib & some of the best mash potatoes I have ever had. The owners are also very nice and sat with us and took their time to help us choose our dish items, their location is nice with a great display everything and you can see their whole operation. They also have all the rental stuff for a complete dining experience. I always recommend them and rave about how their head Chef was a 5 star from the Boulders Resort!
We used Tony and Creations in Cuisine to cater our son’s bar mitzvah. I could not be more impressed. From start to finish Tony and his crew were simply the best. They worked very hard with us to pick a fantastic menu within our budget. They helped out with many extra perks such as helping with the bar. They had great ideas to make our event special and affordable. We had a theme for the party and they came through big time with helping to decorate their end of the presentation (the food) to the theme. Wow! Best part… the food. It was so tasty and so ample. All our guests raved. I would not even consider any other caterer. Tony is my caterer. Thanks.
We recently had an event and this company did the catering. Working with them was so easy. We worked with Tony Rea (one of the owners). He is so easy-going! The food was great and the service was just as great. The servers were amazing. Everything was set up as planned and they even decorated the serving area to blend in with our party theme. They handled all the linens. Everything was homemade and fresh. The cake rocked too! For professionalism and top-quality, I would call this company! Flawless!
This was our second time around using Tony and crew. We had an amazing experience both times around. The complete package! They can provide everything you’re looking for: on time, friendly and some of the best food going. It’s a real challenge to create a great meal for a large group. it’s an even bigger challenge to pull it off and have it be so good that you feel it was created just for you. These guys can do it all. Can’t recommend them enough.
Tara from Creations in Cuisine is a fantastic wedding coordinator! She is thoughtful, organized and answered all of my questions and concerns right away. She is very knowledgeable and knew all of the right questions to ask and steps to take to ensure that our wedding day would be exactly how we envisioned it. She attended to every little detail on the day of the wedding and made sure that all of our vendors were there on time and had everything they needed – nothing was overlooked and the day was flawless! I honestly don’t know what we would have done without her!
I have been using Creation in Cuisine for almost 5 years now. I am so grateful that I found the team over at Creations to take care of all my catering needs. I work for a nonprofit organization and I hold 12+ events a year and they are ALWAYS my food service of choice. The staff is always so helpful with my menu and staying within my budget. The on site staff is amazing! They are always pleasant and on task. I never have to look for them or ask for anything because they are always one step ahead of me with everything. It makes my events so much more pleasant when I know I have one less worry because I know I can rely on the team from creations. Tara wears so many hats at the company yet she always finds time to email me or call me back in a timely manner and help with whatever I need. I have no idea what we did before without them…besides stress. The service is not the only amazing thing about this company but the food is fantastic. We always have complements from our attendees. Often times they request the companies information so they can use them for other events. Big or small they deliver (literally) on everything you want from a catering company. Thank you Creations for making my events so amazing and thank you to the staff that works so hard to make my life that much easier!
Tony and the staff at Creations in Cuisine did the catering for our wedding reception. We had a champagne brunch, and the food was fantastic! Our captain, Stacy, was friendly and introduced herself to us and had everything under control. Tony stopped by during the reception to check in, and their attention to detail was fantastic! We made some alterations to one of Tony’s standard breakfast menus, and all of our special requests were carried out. Many friends and family commented on the food. The prices were reasonable, and the service was great!
We had Creations in Cuisine cater our party. When they brought the food over and set up the display table it was beautiful, the food presentation was perfect. All of our guests loved the food, it was delicious. We had a smoked salmon plate and other appetizers, assorted salads and then also petite fillets and a chicken dish, OMG it all was wonderful. The staff that helped us were very friendly and attentive. I will always have Tony cater for all my parties. The Best Caterer in the Valley, hands down!!! (very professional)
I’ve had Creations cater my High school graduation, several b-day parties, and several family gatherings. And I will have them cater every other important event in my life. From the Staff in the office, the staff at my parties, and the food they make it easy and enjoyable every time. Tony, Tara, Frank, or Ann will most likely be taking your order the first time you call, not only are they informative and creative but courteous. They’re flexible and willing to work with you on any event and will go out of their way to make it a great and unique experience. They’re staff is well trained, groomed (presentation is important!) and mannered as well, which is very important when you’re having VIPS over like co-workers or someone you want to impress. They’re always on time and do a good job of cleaning up at the end. Even if all the positives above weren’t the case I would still use Creations for the food alone! From a simple menu like a BBQ cookout (Ribs, Corn on the cob, mashed potatoes, and honey baked beans), to appetizers (the trio of salsa is phenomenal, and the artichoke dip, omg!) to a formal experience like a plated dinner. They’re bistro tenders and pasta dishes are insanely delicious! I’m always trying to order something different to experience their menu. My step father has used them to do dropped box lunches off for corporate functions at his office and is always pleased with the results as well. I have no plans to be married, but when I do I know who to call. I have heard they do a great wedding package. Thanks Tony and Frank!
Christmas would not have been the same without Frank & Tony cooking! We had the New York Strip for dinner and loved it. We will be calling them again and again! Love you guy, thanks. 🙂
We used Creations in Cuisine for our Wedding in November and they were a total hit. Professional, attentive, organized, easy to work with and customer focused are just some of what comes to mind when I think of Tony and his WONDERFUL staff. And, how could I forget the food?! People have been raving about the quality and flavor of the food since the wedding- and I had some hard to please guests. We had a beef, fish and pasta dish and all were excellent. What’s even better is they got the small things right- from the “captain” (think head waitress) introducing herself to me and making sure that if I had any problems or concerns that she would take care of them to working with us on all our special requests to making sure that my dog (who yes, was in attendance) had food and water. We supplied all of our own alcohol, and the Creations and Cuisine team served it- including a signature cocktail. Amazing! Oh, and how can I forget Tony working within our budget. Friggen awesome. Here’s an example- beef dishes are expensive; more than we wanted to spend, but we really wanted that option. So Tony used some creative thinking and designed a plate that featured 2-3oz fillets instead of one 6oz fillet, which saved us a ton of money- not to mention the presentation was gorgeous! From start to finish working with Tony and his team was an absolute pleasure. If you’re planning an event, look no further and just hire Creations in Cuisine. I promise you’ll be glad that you did.
Happy Day after Thanksgiving! I wanted to write to Thank You for the marvelous food you made for my Mom’s Thanksgiving Feast! She was so happy when I spoke to her last night. She said the food was delicious. We will definitely use you again. I am so relieved to know everything went so beautifully! A Very Grateful New Client, Claudia S. Wilson

Tara, I wanted to say “A BIG THANK YOU ! to you and your staff for the delicious food and fantastic service we received for our Holiday Luncheons. >From all of us at Systems 3, we were very please! Regards, Sharon Finitzer
Tara, OMG it was AMAZING!!!! …I have to tell you that EVERY ONE I spoke with absolutely LOVED the food and the service. The Chef’s were amazing along with the help. I was so worried because I am always about the food and you guys were so good. I never got any of the beef wellington but the chicken on the spoons were delicious and the dinner was a big hit with my guest. I am going to go on Yelp and say some really nice things for you. Tara again I have given your name out to a few people already. Thanks so much as I will always use you :). Vicky~
I would personally like to thank the entire company for an awesome meal, and service. All the food was phenomenal, and very well received!! Kudos to Ann for her recommendations, and patience with me 🙂 We will highly recommend your company for any catering services in the Phoenix area! Thanks again

Dear Tony, Wow! As usual, your divine presentation for the WedAZ Release Party was as beautiful as the food was delicious. I can always count on you to do your best and once again, you did not disappoint! You make it easy for me to refer you. Thank you, Angie
Dear Tony and team, My heartfelt thanks for the great food and fabulous service at Bob’s memorial. He would have so enjoyed everything. You are simple the best in Arizona. Again many thanks.
Dear Tony & Creations in Cuisine Catering, Thank you for your professionalism & delicious provisions at our January 5th wedding! The services you provided were unmatched & we can confidently say you were a top vendor for our big day. The food & staff were both phenomenal & we received many compliments from our guests, which we are pleased to pass on to you. Also, you’re flexible and we are gracious for that (ie. chairs, tasting). Please see photos at the link [provided] and video (in which your fare looks succulent) & feel free to use any in your advertising.

Hi Tara, I just wanted to say thank you again! You all did such an amazing job, and everyone was telling me how great the food was and that they looooved the milkshakes! The decor was perfect. The evening was everything I had hoped for and more! From start to finish you have made this so easy and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate everything! Thank you thank you thank you! You’re amazing!
Creations in Cuisine was outstanding! From the initial tasting, to the planning leading up to the event, to the food and service on the day. Our guests raved about how excellent the food was and I felt the service exceeded expectations. Nothing was too much to ask of the staff. The pricing was reasonable, and everyone we interacted with went above and beyond. I would highly recommend Creations in Cuisine. PS Our wedding was in Sedona, so they had to travel to the event, yet it still went off flawlessly.
Hi Tara, I just wanted to say thank you so much for everything last weekend. Our guests raved about the food and had such a good time. We couldn’t have done it without you and the rest of the talented Creations in Cuisine Team. I would happily recommend your team to anyone, anytime. In fact, let me know if there’s a good place to do so online. Thanks again for everything, from the bottom of my heart!
