I would not use this company if I were you. I used this company for an high end business reception for 70 people. They were late, so much so that our guest had arrived and they were still setting up. They reeked of cigarette smoke and their professional appearance was questionable. Melody had on flips flops and her husband had stains all over his chef coat. The food was unexceptional and they refused to provide a partial refund after agreeing to do so when dissatisfaction was communicated in person, immediately following the event. This company does not stand by thier word. I would proceed with caution.

I had hoped to resolve this between us, but since you decided to go this route, I will reply here.
We provided high quality food for 70 people on time. Guests at the event told us they enjoyed the food. The food on the buffet was all gone when we returned, as your employees got take home containers and took it home. We watched them do this as we were packing up our items.
The contract said we were to be there by 4:30 pm. We arrived at 4:15. We were to be set up by 5:30 pm. We were completely set up by 5:15 and I have time stamp photos on my phone to prove it. We left at 5:30.
Our attire for dropping off food is not part of the contract. As I told you that night, neither my husband nor I smoke.
While you want to claim this was a high-end event, the truth is we only charged you $20 pp, no delivery or pick up fee and no extra fees for plates, napkins, chafers, utensils or gratuity that other caterers would charge.
We also noticed unused name tags on the table when we returned. Talking with guests attending after the event, we discovered there were only 30 attending. My feeling is you spent a lot of money, from a photographer to the desserts to us, and it wasn't well attended. The others were flat fee services, so you are trying to recoup from us because we are contract based.
Now, because we refuse your outlandish request of half back, you are going on every profile to slander and harass us. I will be reporting you to the county and, if you persist, will file criminal charges.
Everything was absolutely perfect and I still crave their Rosemary Chicken and Garlic Mashed Potatoes! Dareing Events went above and beyond anything I could've ever imagined and I would recommended them to anyone! The food was to die for, the staff members were happy, helpful and a joy to be around, and everything was set up exactly how I imagined!
We used Dareing Events to cater our wedding. This included full service buffet for 130 people and 2 bartenders.
