Here’s what some of our clients are saying—another important measure of our success!
“[We] wanted to thank you and the crew for the absolutely AMAZING job you guys did for us on Saturday. Each detail was perfect. EVERY single guest raved to us about the food – folks were amazed at how moist the pork and salmon were – how perfectly cooked the vegetables were – w/ just the right amount of crunch. I must admit – I knew the food was amazing at our tasting but I tried not to hold high standards for the wedding as I can only imagine how hard it is to cook for 250 people […] You guys blew my expectations out of the water – complete pros. Please give my compliments to the chef/captain and all of the crew. The desserts were impeccable – hors’ complex yet simple – and everything in between just tasted damn good! My photographer commented on how attentive and on top of it you were – which didn’t surprise us (as YOU were the reason we chose to go w/ 3 Tomatoes!!!) – however, she obviously does a countless amount of weddings so that is a huge compliment. The staff was fabulous and friendly and all of our friends think it was the event of the decade! Of course we would have to agree. We could never thank you guys enough.
[W]e will ALWAYS recommend you – and if we have another event in the future – you will be the first one we call.
Thank you thank you thank you! Please pass along our deepest gratitude to all who worked the event! You all helped in making the night one to remember (or in the case of some guests, one they wished they did)!”
Joe and Jessy – Wedding
“…[I] wanted you to know I got rave reviews on the braised short ribs last week. It was all awesome! Even from the President! He said best job yet and this is my 11 year catering this gig.
I have said if I die, or get fired ( my kids own the company) or hit by a bus, that you guys need to be called in March 2016 for sure or if we should need catering for anything for the rest of the year. Great job and great food!”
Jo Ann Rice, DBC Irrigation Supply President’s Office – Corporate Event
“I wanted to thank you for all your great work for our wedding! The cake was incredible!!!!!! The staff was amazing and did a great job at making sure Lisa and I always had what we needed… it saved us! The mac and cheese bar was probably the biggest hit of the night 🙂 We will make sure to refer y’all to anyone and everyone!”
J. Henry – Wedding
“Your team was phenomenal to work with. From Abby [Event Planner] building a great relationship with the client at her first meeting and carrying that through with creative suggestions and thorough responsiveness, to the planning process, to Dale’s calm, efficient, and organized leadership (he was SO great to work with!), to the catering staff’s friendliness and willingness to help pack and load the client’s items and floral vases…they all were such a dream team to work with and really contributed to one of the smoothest wedding experiences I’ve had all summer.”
S. Horn – JA Special Events
“A HUGE thank you to you and your team (both staff and riders) for your help and support of Bike MS! … and the rest of the crew were great to work with and made things go smoothly. This is shaping up to be one of our most successful events and we are glad Three Tomatoes could be a part! Thank you!”
R. Saperstein – The Colorado Bike MS Staff
“I want to take the time to formally THANK YOU [Lauren and Three Tomatoes] again for your assistance in preparing for my daughter’s graduation party this past Sunday (6/1).
I am a detailed person and can’t think of one thing that was missed or overlooked. To begin, everything ran very smoothly and the staff was ever so helpful! What was most impressive was they were very discreet, yet efficient. There was never a moment when food was low, empty plates excessively left unattended… The evening ended with my husband and I so pleased and felt the staff exceeded our expectation in making the “party” enjoyable for us as well as our daughter.
The choice of menu was perfect – the food was delicious, perfect balance of taste, color, texture and each dish was served at the perfect temperature. I did receive comments from the “kids” that is was the best grad party food! (Note: Katie’s was the last on her groups “circuit” as most were the prior weekend.)
When we spoke, you asked about Fleur de Lis and as I was re-reading this original email, I must share they followed through with your instructions to a “T”. The flowers were not over-stated, yet perfect. They were exactly what your specified – white (to pop off the tablecloths) and a splash of purple (status). Rhonda (Fleur de Lis) was easy to work with over the phone and very responsive when I checked in a couple days prior.
Butler rentals was easy to work with, timely on both the delivery and pick-up!
In the future, I won’t have to think too hard where I will go for anything close to hosting our next party.”
S. Bennett Trefz – Graduation Party
“I am a recent client of Three Tomatoes and worked with Lauren Szymecko on my son’s fifth birthday party.
Lauren was truly a pleasure to work with from start to finish. She had fun and creative ideas and collaborated and attended to all of the details of the party in a timely and efficient manner.
She even showed up the day of the party to make sure everything went smoothly! I really appreciate working with her as she made it easy for me to enjoy our party.
I also wanted to let you know that the staff members that worked our party were wonderful too. Michael was the lead person and he really stood out. He was incredibly professional, friendly and his attention to detail really appreciated.
You have a wonderful team and I thank you for such great service. Because of such a great team, I look forward to more events with you in the future.”
L. Merriken – LÄRABAR
“In February, I hosted a birthday party catered by Three Tomatoes. I could not have been more pleased and impressed with the personal attention I received from Sarah Hoffenberg, from the initial planning meeting through the actual event, which she attended. She even followed up with a thank you note. Sarah’s professionalism and attention to detail, as well as her warm personality and friendship, made this event a great success.
I also was impressed with Dale, the Front Captain, Blake, the Back Captain, and Chris, the bartender. All exhibited the perfect combination of professionalism and sense of humor which really added to the fun of our event.
Thank you for your excellent staff and for providing me with a terrific, labor-free party!”
D. Peterson – Birthday Party
“Thanks so much for making our party a great success; everyone raved about you, the guys, and the food. I’ve attached three photos of y’all. We are ‘singing your praises’ and will certainly recommend you and Three Tomatoes every chance we get! So glad you stayed for the party; you went above and beyond.”
Anonymous – Birthday Party
“OMG – I just met your darling driver, poor guy out today! THANK YOU THANK YOU!! I am not kidding you, I am making some rolls tonight and salad and Three Tomatoes is providing the rest!! Marc and I (NEVER DO THIS) but we are having date night, in tonight and you literally provided dinner!! THANKS!
I will get the others to the team – THANK YOU on their behalf too!! I can’t wait to try the wine – they may just get pasta and sauce and a beautiful towel!! Love it so much I could literally do a full kitchen design around that towel!
THANK YOU Riccardo. We are looking forward to a great year! I have to share something, Matt and I were talking earlier this week about you and how you all have really proven yourself, risen above the rest this year for the caterers and from all areas (customer surveys, on-site operations, thorough and responsive communications) has been amazing and raised the bar for CWF and our catering partners. Really – Matt even said had we not decided to have a partnership with you all we would have really missed out! I know it has been an amazing but busy busy year for you taking over the company and such and during this transition and whatever else goes on in your world we never felt any of the craze! That is an amazing professional I have to say!
THANKS so much – make it a great start to the year and Thank You again Riccardo for thinking of us and ALL of us at Crooked Willow Farms, no one has ever included our event managers and that is super special!!!”
P. Moser – Blue Eyes Consulting
“I hastened to write you ‘in the cold gray dawn’ to say of the food last night: ‘Bon Extraordinaire.’ We simply could not decide any item was better than the other! It was all delicious and our dear friend … was moved to tears. Thank you for being a part of sharing our love for her. Of course, I am ready to order another mouth-watering meal as soon as I can come up with an excuse to do so!!! By the way, we said a special … prayer for the continuing success of ‘Three Tomatoes.’ Watch out you will have more business than you ever imagined!”
B. Culpepper – Memorial Reception
“Thank you so, so much for everything! Your catering staff kicked serious a… at my wedding yesterday. All the times I’ve been to weddings with terrible food and catering staff… you guys were the exact opposite of that. The food was DELICIOUS (I’m scarfing down leftover potato salad as we speak), and I actually got to EAT it at the reception because the catering captain brought me a plate before anyone else! The staff was friendly, professional, and sweet. The bartender was perfect: prompt, professional, personal. Seriously, we couldn’t have been happier with the service. I can’t thank you enough.”
J. d’Arbonne – Wedding Reception
“Love working with Three Tomatoes – the food was awesome, the crew solicitous and polite (I love how they always yield to in a doorway or narrow hallway!). Thanks so much for everything!”
P. Parker – Mad Peaches Grand Opening Event
“It was the most beautifully served and most delicious food I had ever seen and had, we were thrilled with the outcome. The staff was extraordinarily professional, easy to work with, and delightful to be around.”

A. Lingbloom – Carson International, Inc.
“Everyone was raving about the food and the catering staff… You hit a TOTAL home run!!!! I can’t rave enough about it. It was well beyond my expectations for sure. Your company is first rate and your service is well beyond what anyone expects or could ever pay for.”
L. Salamone – Wedding Shower
“Thank you for all your help and for being so prompt, I wish you could work on all my events across the country!”
S. Doman – RBC Wealth Management
“The centerpiece of any party is the food – a properly prepared and orchestrated meal is, in my opinion, the architectural foundation for an evening’s enjoyment (or not). Thankfully, because of you, last Wednesday’s event hit the highest of notes. I had people come up to me (who are benefit-worn) to rave and rave. How do you continue to do it? Thank you for such high standards and intelligent work.”
M. Cannon – MCA | Denver Gala attendee
“There are hardly words for the thanks that I want to express to you and your amazing staff for everything… Thank you x 1000 for all of your help. I will literally never work with another caterer unless you are unavailable.”
