Alpine Wedding Buffet

We used Alpine catering for our wedding, we got the deluxe buffet for around 70 guests! First off - the food was amazing! We loved that the head table got served to avoid long dresses in a buffet line and the plates served were massive and delicious portions. The quality of the food is exceptional value compared to other food vendors in calgary! I’d say my only feedback for improvement would be responsiveness/details - we found it hard to get emails back at times (although I understand this wedding season is exceptionally busy) and he did answer voicemails when left so not a huge deal! We were slightly disappointed our one guest who needed a gluten free meal was told that they didn’t have one for her - I included that detail in several emails so that was disappointing but they were able to walk her through the buffet and show her GF options. For one person it wasn’t a huge deal, but the way it was said to her made it seem like I had forgotten to include her. Other than that I would definitely recommend them! I’d just say to call Rick instead of emails as it tends to be easier and ensure that you note any allergies for separate plates to be made up.

Good value with great feedback from guests

We were very satisfied with the service provided by Alpine Catering - they had delicious food at an affordable rate, and the staff were very friendly. Rick was accommodating and quick to reply to emails about any concerns we had. At first, my wife was worried because we did not receive a formal invoice and we wanted to plan logistics months in advance, whereas Rick preferred to finalize details a week prior; however, he is reliable and provided a great service! It was very helpful that Alpine Catering provided the buffet and tableware (table clothes, dinnerware, cutlery, etc.) that was professionally cleaned and that we could pick up the day prior for us to set up the space. The staff did a phenomenal job on the day-of preparing, serving and cleaning supper. Their service played a part in making the wedding a low stress event for us planning and very filling for the guests. The guests were very happy with the meal as the chicken was very moist and the vegetarian option was delicious as well. One of the staff even offered to serve me, the groom, another plate of food since my socializing caused my food to get cold before I could have a bite! We would definitely recommend Alpine Catering!

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.

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.
