Catering

"We are raving fans and so happy we chose The Phoenix to cater our recent wedding at Derby Lane! Lilly and her team were incredible and a trusted partner which is what you need when you are pulling together many different vendors to have a tent wedding! She was kind, professional and flexible as she helped lead us through our wedding postponement in 2020 and more importantly even navigate the current environment of guest rsvp's without it being stressful. The dinner and appetizers that night were incredible!! We received so many compliments during the reception and in the weeks since from guests who enjoyed their meal (several even told us it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding!). The chicken and waffles and bourbon-braised short ribs were the big hits of the evening but everything they served was absolutely delicious. We truly can't say enough good things about them and will use them again in the future."      -Lauren F.

 

"The Phoenix catered my Ault Park wedding and they did an amazing job. Lilly was so easy to work with and the food was amazing- we got so many compliments!"      -Carly S.

 

"We booked The Phoenix to cater our wedding and we were completely blown away by their professionalism, food, and service! We had to reschedule our wedding due to COVID, and they were very understanding and accommodating with the change. Lilly was amazing to work with! Lilly took the stress out of our COVID changes and helped us every step of the way. She also went above and beyond by running out to buy us more ice when we ran out early due to a miscalculation on our part. Our guests raved about the food (italian pasta buffet), and the staff was so fun, they were dancing and having a good time during the wedding, adding to the positive energy. I cannot recommend The Phoenix highly enough!"      -Kylie J. 

 

"This food was absolutely delicious! Guest the night of and still now still talk about how great the food was! Lilly was our coordinator and she was fabulous! After postponing our reception for a year she was incredibly organized and made sure everything went smoothly day of. If you want great food, please book them!"    -Kate M.

 

"Lilly Klein and the entire staff at The Phoenix were phenomenal. Lilly was always quick to respond to any email question I had and also very accommodating through all the changes we made in the course of delaying our wedding for a full year. I was planning my wedding from out of town, and for a venue in northern Kentucky. We made several changes to the menu to make it more Covid friendly, moving our reception outdoors, lowering our guest count and also had to accommodate various dietary restrictions of our guests. Phoenix executed all of this perfectly. Not to mention that the food was absolutely amazing. I seriously do not know how they pulled it off. But we had 100% raves about the food and I am 1000% pleased with the entire experience. I highly recommend them to cater your event."    -Beckey B.

 

"I am so happy we chose to go with The Phoenix to cater our recent wedding at New Riff Distilling! Lilly and her team were incredibly helpful, organized, and communicative in the weeks leading up to our big day. She was also so kind and flexible when we approached her about postponing our original wedding date (June of 2020) due to the pandemic. Most importantly, though, the food was incredible. We received so many compliments during the reception and in the weeks since from guests who enjoyed their meal (several even told us it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding!). The chicken and waffles, little gem salad, and bourbon-braised short ribs were the big hits of the evening but everything they served was absolutely delicious. In addition to the great food, the waitstaff was polite, quick, and so attentive throughout the reception. We truly can't say enough good things about them!"    -Krista W.

 

"We cannot say enough good things about our experience with The Phoenix! From the very beginning, they were communicative, professional, and so welcoming. From allergies to table settings, to bar tending and COVID delays, The Phoenix team took care of every detail and made sure we had peace of mind through the whole process. We even had a change in event manager in the middle and they didn't miss a beat. Last, but not least, the food was amazing and completely customizable to our liking! We highly recommend The Phoenix and their team!"      -Lily B.


"So delicious and Lilly was awesome to work with. We received so many compliments on our food! Communication was also great from beginning to end, we never had to wait too long for a response. We would 100% recommend"    -Veronica

 

"The Phoenix catered our wedding at Ault Park, and they were absolutely amazing! We were planning our Cinci wedding from Denver, and Lilly worked with us to ensure we had a tasting when we were randomly in town. The food was outstanding! We had a plated dinner due to COVID, so we were initially worried about the timing of our 200+ guests being served as well as the guests getting their food preference (3 meal options + kids meals). We had absolutely nothing to be worried about because The Phoenix was so well staffed and knew exactly what they were doing throughout the entire night. The planning process, Lilly, the wait staff, the bartenders, the food... I can't say enough good things and neither could our guests! Everyone is still telling us how good the food was and how friendly and fun the wait staff and bartenders were. We would absolutely recommend the Phoenix!"    -Jessica K.

 

"The Phoenix was amazing. They easily met of the "table stakes" items like being on time, courteous, etc and went beyond that by ensuring that all dietary needs were met, they addressed any quest concerns immediately and professionally. And mots importantly - The meal was fantastic! Guests were reaching out after the event to compliment. Especially impressive as our event was offsite. Strongly recommend!"       -Bradley H. 

 

"My husband and I will forever hear how amazing the brunch food was at our wedding! We worked with Lilly Klein, the best-in-class catering and event manager at the Phoenix. Lilly helped us ensure our food was delicious (down to finding an oven for our mini chicken and waffles!) and served safely the day of our wedding. She was a delight to work with! The entire Phoenix team was amazing the day of our wedding - we have been told many times now how friendly both the serving staff and the bartenders were. The Phoenix is the best!"      -Katie O. 

 

"I am so glad we went with The Phoenix for our catering! We did the pasta bar and everyone was so complimentary about the food. They were great to work with and we didn’t have to worry about anything on the day of our wedding. I would highly recommend using them for your catering needs!"       -Kelly C.

 

"Due to Covid, we had to re-plan our entire wedding venue and add catering, which we didn't need before. We went with The Phoenix because my sister had her wedding at their venue, so we already knew the food was great! From the initial email to the tasting and then beyond, Lilly was very hands on and responded to all of my emails quickly and always answered every question I had! She had worked with my venue before and they spoke so highly of her, and Lilly spoke highly of them so it was just a perfect fit! The food tasted amazing at the tasting making it such a hard choice to get our menu set, but any of the choices are the right choice! On our wedding day the food tasted great, it was brought out in a timely manner, and the entire staff was so amazing and gracious and attentive! I cannot say enough about the wait staff, especially our bar tender! They were all great and we had so many compliments on them from our guests! Lilly and her team are amazing! People are still raving about the food and the service months later, and I love hearing this! If you are thinking of using The Phoenix as catering, or even your event space, do it! You will not be disappointed!"      -Jennifer F.

 

"We had an amazing experience with The Phoenix catering for our Oct 2020 wedding. We especially loved working with their catering and event manager Abby. She was warm, friendly, attentive, creative, and could turn around a quote faster than anyone else we worked with! It is this level of professionalism that puts your mind at ease in the weeks leading up to and the day of your wedding. We originally planned to have a wedding with 180 guests in May, and that became a wedding for 10 people in October due to Covid. The Phoenix provided great ideas for our new intimate wedding dinner, and the food turned out amazing. It was a true highlight of the evening, and certainly the best wedding food I've had! Highly recommend!"       -Kathleen M.

 

"We had the Phoenix cater a taco bar for our wedding and it did not disappoint! We were originally scheduled for May 2020 but had to postpone due to COVID. Lilly at the Phoenix was so supportive and helpful through the whole process as local and national guidelines were constantly changing. She helped us alter our menu and food service but still keep the foods we wanted. We got so many compliments and the wedding food not only being unique but also so delicious!"
