    Communication issues and inexperienced bartending staff

    Communication was not great, it would take several unresponsive emails and voicemails to get a callback. The bartenders were 2 hours late and rude to the guests, and our cocktail hour snacks were never served. Alpine did fix this by providing a partial refund for some of the missed services, but many of the issues could have been problem-solved beforehand if they communicated with us. The serving staff were fantastic and the meat dishes were awesome, but the over-all experience was fairly negative.

    Alpine Catering's reply:

    I am disappointed to see this review this morning as I spoke with this client days after there wedding and I thought these shortcomings were resolved
    Let me start by saying this Wedding was in Canmore. I did hire one new bartender and one worked with me before, after coming out of Covid we had to replace some of our staff and had to endure staff shortages like many industries They were late as they said they got lost. So when they arrive late they were ran off their feet and may of been a little flustered. I believe the miscommunication was mostly from Canada day holiday on the Friday she did leave me a few messages and I did respond in the evening.
    The Catering staff got lots of compliments on the quality of food, taste and service at dinner time and clean up later. I received a voicemail Sunday morning thanking me and saying everything was fantastic and then when to drop off the linens.
    After meeting with the client I then discussed the issues with my bartenders to improve their customer service.

    Great service and awesome food!

    Rick and his staff were awesome to work with. They worked with all of the COVID restrictions and were all so friendly and also extremely efficient! The food was delicious and its a common compliment we’ve received about our wedding over the last couple of months. We would highly recommend this company for anyone currently planning their wedding.

    Excellent!

    We live in the country and were married at our home. The Alpine crew were very flexible with us, they came out early to set everything up and back again later with the food before the dinner. They were so professional and served the grandparents first before allowing everyone else go up for food. Would highly recommend!

    What a fabulous meal!

    Our guests raved about the meal! We were so happy with the cost, and that it included the linens. They were so flexible with the setup the day before, and were unobtrusive during the meal. Excellent caterers!

    Alpine Catering's reply:

    Hope you have many years of happiness together.
