Chef Enroute Complaint - Do Not Hire Chef Enroute!!!!

Review by Nko on 2010-10-22
I hired Dean to be my caterer for my wedding. My story is so very similar to the other girl. Dean showed up 3 hours late. He brought 2 servers instead of the promised 3. He didn't cut the appitizers my wedding planner had to do it. He and the servers wore jean shorts and t-shirts when my wedding was Black Tie. He didn't bring the food tables or the drink bar. He went and cooked in our house when he was suppose to bring a portable kitchen. He went to our basement and shoved burnt food down the drain which my mom had to clean out later because he shoved it down somehow. My husband and I ate our salads with our fingers because he didn't have the silverware out and we ate our cake with our fingers because we had to do the cake cutting and the dances first because our food was not ready. He didn't even serve the food we ordered, and he burnt most of it, I couldn't even eat my plate once dinner was served 2 hours late. We had between 20 and 40 guests leave before dinner was served because they were hungry. We had to pay my wedding planner hundreds of dollars more because she had to call in more pf her employees to help fold napkins and many other things that Dean didn't do. Dean and his girls were also smoking during the reception. It was a nightmare. There were so many other things that happened but I can't explain them all. I would NEVER recommend Dean!

I remember the other review. This guy sounds like someone to avoid at all costs. The only thing you can do now is post this on wedding sites and anywhere else it seems appropriate, so this doesn't happen to someone else.

I hope it didn't spoil the day. Just keep focusing on the things that went right, like the I do's!

If he did not honor all the things that were in the contract, you should take him to small claims court for breach of contract.

That being said, congratulations on your new marriage!
