Great to work with, Joy is very professional and answered countless questions etc. Food is very good quality. Would like to see a more creative food display.
Joy was extremely helpful throughout the entire planning process. From the very beginning, she was quick to respond to my emails and provide the information I needed. Ault Park Pavilion allows several caterers but I it narrowed down to Village Pantry and Jeff Thomas, after talking with my contact at Ault Park and hearing that 90% of the events there are done by one or the other. I know that may not seem like the best way to choose a vendor, but I wanted a caterer who knew the (slightly unusual) venue of Ault Park Pavilion. Jeff Thomas had great reviews but was WAY out of our budget. I didn't even set up a tasting with them. Village Pantry was well within our budget. Joy worked to bring the quote down, and was honest about aspects that were not necessary. Whenever I requested to omit something because I didn't think we needed it, she never pressured me to keep it (and thus keep the bill high). Joy even came with me to the walk-through at Ault Park and asked questions I wouldn't have though of. She was always very reserved and calm and very efficient. The food is very good. We had our guests choose between chicken mornay, NY strip steak, or cheese ravioli with marinara. I had the chicken and it was absolutely delcious. I head the steak was slightly dry but still very good ... and huge. As far as I could tell, the servers did a great job. Joy was actually the superviser at the wedding and was always making sure that Michael and I had drinks. I actually got a thank you note from her in the mail yesterday .... this was a wonderful vendor.
