Jen and her colleagues were very helpful in planning, especially as I was out-of-state for most of the planning. The tasting was invaluable in choosing our final menu and was well-presented. Our guests gave us great feedback and compliments about the event and the food. The manager made sure everything was taken care of, including working with Andrea, the Cincinnati Museum Center event coordinator, to find a last minute screwdriver to help with one of our centerpieces. We also had a guest with specific dietary needs who was well taken care of.
Review on The Knot: We chose McHale’s as our caterer for our rehearsal dinner. We had the Beef Tenderloin, Sautéed Vegetables, Rice, and Potatoes with a Caesar Salad and assorted Desserts all as a buffet. The potatoes and beef were raved about by everyone, and because we chose the buffet, the carver was able to give each person their preference from rare to medium well. The staff was great – we had planned to spend some time taking pictures before dinner and they held all of the food for us so that we could do that. I appreciated how accommodating they were and that they packed up leftovers for us to take back. We had some guests who needed accommodations due to Ramadan and the staff was happy to help with that as well. The food and service were excellent and I could not have been more pleased with how our rehearsal dinner went. We decorated the tables with collectibles from our different hobbies – dance, Star Trek, LOTR, Doctor Who and the staff was great at helping get that setup and packed up at the end of the night. They were great at letting us know when the bar was closing so everyone could get a last drink, etc. Communication between us and McHale’s went very smoothly. After the tasting and up to the day-of, so both my fiancé-now husband-and I knew what to expect as well as pricing estimates, etc. We had a number of questions for McHale’s and our planner, Jen was knowledgeable and able to answer all of them, which we both appreciated. We could not have asked for better responsiveness from our planner. We really appreciate all of the work that went into making our rehearsal dinner a perfect start to our wedding weekend. We felt the catering was a good value for the quality of service and food that we received and I would definitely recommend McHale’s for anyone looking for a caterer for their events.
