All around crowd pleaser! - An Eventective User from Tampa, FL

Chef and his team catered our annual summer party for 125 people. We had a BBQ Buffet, we LOVED Chef G's BBQ sauce! They were so accommodating, helpful when dropping off/set up. Everyone raved about their food and business cards were gone in a 30 mins!

Great service - An Eventective User from Tampa

Gaston's Culinary was awesome. They were one of the only catering companies I called that actually returned my phone call. Food was wicked good. Service was on time and they were available for any questions we had. They helped make our event extra delicious with prices that were very affordable. Everything came ready to go, which made it much less stressful the day of our event

Catering for a 50th Birthday Party - An Eventective User from Tampa

Everything was amazing! The guests could not stop raving about the food. The cheesecake shooters, angus sliders and Cod with Shrimp and capers were an all around crowd favorite. However every dish was mentioned by multiple guests. Thank you for making our party easy and a huge success! They were easy to work with, on time and quick setup.

The Trifecta - Great Service, Food and Staff! - An Eventective User from Miami, Florida

I hired Gaston’s Culinary Services for a milestone event! They had a wonderful selection of food choice options which made it easy for me to customize. The FOOD was delicious and wonderfully presented. The catering manager, Danyell, was a pleasure to work with, I had 10 days to pull off the event and Gaston’s partnered with me to get it done. They scouted my venue and came up with a food presentation design that impressed the guest of honor and our guests. They are now my #1 Catering Choice! The Food is Fantastic!

Excellent! - An Eventective User from Tampa, FL

Friendly, extremely communicative, accommodating, and then...great food! It was a pleasure to work with them, and they made it easy for us to have a great time at our event!

Amazing from Beginning to End - An Eventective User from Brandon,FL

We recently used Gaston’s Culinary Service for our annual fundraising gala. This year we had about 275-300 people. We contacted Chef Gaston with our “Tampa” theme and let him go from there. Each step he and his entire team were a dream to work with and I have worked with my share of caterers in the Tampa Bay Area. Our guests raved about his food (the conch fritter lollipops were amazing), his staff’s incredible professionalism and how great every aspect of their service was. I even had my venue coordinator and event design team asking for his information for them to pass on to future clients. We loved him so much that I’m in the process of booking him for my dad’s surprise birthday party and more.

Outstanding - An Eventective User from Brandon, FL

Gaston's Culinary Service provided food for our daughter's wedding. They were highly professional and extremely helpful from start to finish. The food was superb and beautifully presented. The staff was professional and polite. Absolutely would hire again without hesitation.

Great food! Awesome team! - An Eventective User from Tampa, Fl

Choosing a caterer was a challenging experience being an out of state bride who couldn’t do any tastings. So, I had to rely on reviews to select my caterer. I selected Gaston’s with the reviews on their food and service. I’m so glad that I did! The team is great at Gaston’s. Kathy helped to coordinate my meal and was very communicative and kind at every step of the way. The team that came on my wedding day were very professional and friendly! The food was very tasty and all of my guests loved it! They were even kind enough to fulfill a special meal request for a guest with dietary restrictions - who also loved it! I’m so happy that I chose Gaston’s. They’re a great company that cares about their clients and their services took away one more thing to be worried about on my wedding day.

Excellent Food and Service! - An Eventective User from Tampa, Florida

Member - Grace & Truth Bible Chapel - An Eventective User from bROOKSVILLE, fl

On behalf of Grace & Truth Assembly in Brooksville, we want to thank you for your care of our 2019 Conference. Not only was the food plentiful, it was outstanding to the taste. Many of our guest commented on how good the food was and the professional manner in which the staff handled everything. The guest who had the special dietary needs could not get over the care you took in preparing such great tasting meals for her. Again our sincere thanks and appreciation for your care of our Brothers & Sisters.

Excelent! - An Eventective User from Bradenton, FL

I am so glad I found Gaston. The food was amazing and his staff were extremely professional. From the first phone call to the after the event follow-up email, he and his staff were always there for me. When we had the tasting, it was like I was eating at a fancy restaurant. Did not have a single negative experience.

BBQ Event @ Homes - An Eventective User from Tampa, FL

Great Food! Great Service! - An Eventective User from Riverview, FL

Gaston's provided us excellent food and service on pretty short notice. Our guests raved about the quality of their food. Advice: Order more than you really need - my guests consumed one of the offerings so fast I didn't get to sample it. But it was good to have happy guests. One of the staff stayed to assist. She was very professional and did much more than we expected. Great experience with Gaston's. I highly recommend!

Great Food! Perfect for the Summer Party!! - An Eventective User from Riverview, FL

This is the best catering service in the area! The food was amazing-- all of my guests loved it. I will definitely use Gaston's Culinary Services for future events!

Robin Dunlap - An Eventective User from Haines City, FL

Fantastic Catering - An Eventective User from Tampa, FL

We loved the menu choices, the food was outstanding, the presentation was amazing, and the staff was very attentive. We plan on using them for all our catering events!

30th Anniversary Celebration of our Church - An Eventective User from Bradenton, FL

I have coordinated numerous events, from large family events to large (15,000 people) community events. I found Gaston's Culinary Services to be exceptional with which to work. Very professional and accommodating! I am still getting rave reviews two weeks after our event! Top notch people with top shelf service!

Newtown Alive! - An Eventective User from Sarasota, FL

I thought about running around for items myself to save money during the unveiling ceremony of Newtown's historic markers. I didn't need the added stress of wondering how the food would taste and how to make the table look inviting and beautiful. I remembered the great work of Gaston and his crew when I lived in the Sarasota.Manatee County areas. A friend of mine always booked Gaston. I called him. I knew during the phone meeting that he'd know what to do and exceed my expectations. Immediately, I felt a calm after talking to him over the phone. We worked out a menu, decided the best colors of the presentation that matched our theme, etc. I've received only great remarks about the entire event, including the catering. We "fired on all cylinders" with the catering, its presentation, taste, and there was more than enough for everyone to enjoy. We celebrated our African American history in style. Another star is rate Gaston's Culinary Services, Inc. exceptional. Excellent isn't enough. Disney Quality Service training outlines the kind of customer service that keeps customers returning again and again. Gaston gives customers above what's expected. That's why I'll hire him again in a heartbeat! Can I add another 5 stars?

Everyone raved - An Eventective User from Tampa, FL

Gaston catered our company event at Bushnell Motor Speedway in Bushnell, FL Everyone was very impressed with the food and t he professionalism of the staff. They always get raves from our group!

Guest wanted more... - An Eventective User from Tampa, FL

It was with great pleasure that we selected Gaston's for the Surprise "50th" Birthday Party for my husband.  I worked with Chef Gaston during another event, and was instantly impressed.  I set up a meeting, we sat down to go over the menu, and the professionalism of the staff was impeccable.  Once I explained the type of atmosphere I envisioned for the party, Chef Gaston initiated his plan; and it was brilliant (appetizer buffet).  My husband is a native of New York, and loves pizza and egg rolls; so instantly Chef stated, "try Naan Pizza Points, and the Vegetable Spring Rolls!"  We added his favorite toppings (Spinach/Feta), and we were off...the rest of the menu was so easy; from the Teriyaki Sesame Meatballs to the Panko Chicken Bites, which were "superb," the guests couldn't stop raving!  What stands out the most with us is that our family suffered a loss during the planning, and we received an email from the staff that they were thinking of us during the time of our bereavement.  We knew at that moment that we selected more than just a Culinary staff who saw us as a business deal; but a staff who cared about lasting relationship.  From our initial encounter, to the staff who served at the party, there was nothing but expertise and care; and the food left you wanting more!  Thank you Gaston's Culinary Services! Erika Green

Fierce and Fabulous Birthday Party - An Eventective User from Tampa, FL

When I first started planning my party I had no idea of the who, when and where...but I did know what caterer I wanted to have - Gaston's Culinary Services. Everything was exactly how I envisioned and what I wanted it to be. The food was amazing, everyone is still talking about the beef, conch fritter balls and the mash potato martinis :) You and your staff treated my family and friends like they were your own family and I couldn't have asked for anything more. I even saw the bartender breaking it down a couple of times to the music. Thank you for all the suggestions. Thank you Chef, Kathy and Anthony (I apologize for not remembering the other servers name) for making my "Fierce and Fabulous" party memorable. I now I have found a go-to caterer. Thank you so much! Tina

Birthday Party - An Eventective User from Wesley Chapel, FL

Chef Gaston catered our party and it was a huge success. We were impressed from the very first contact with him and his staff until they loaded up their van and left. The menu sampling was set up in a five- star restaurant atmosphere. All of the options were explained clearly and thoroughly. Chef and Anthony "Five Star" arrived slightly ahead of time (which was great). They set up quickly and were ready well before the quests arrived. The food was excellent. The quests were blown away. Chef, Anthony and Leilani were so attentive that each guest felt like they were getting special treatment. The price was extremely reasonable. Chef Gaston's reputation will surely grow. I'm glad we found him before he becomes a superstar.

Broadway Theatre Project - An Eventective User from New York

We had an almost impossible task, to feed 101 people (82 of them teenagers, and professional dancers) lunch and dinner for 15 days straight (at our remote location) without a break. We had vegans, vegetarians, and carnivores with very specific dietary needs. Gaston's Culinary Services came through for us with flying colors! The menu was always varied and delicious, and all the while within our strict dietary needs and budget. They were always on time (early) and well prepared. The staff was supportive and helpful at every turn. As Program Director for a summer training program, and being responsible for over 100 people, I can truly say that Gaston's took a weight off my shoulders. At least the food was something I did not have to worry about. :) I can wholeheartedly recommend Gaston's Culinary Services for any event or occasion. Not only will you will not regret it, you'll be very glad you chose them. Thank you Gaston and Kathy. We look forward to a long a prosperous relationship. See you next summer :) David Sabella Program Director, Broadway Theatre Project

Wedding Rehearsal Dinner - An Eventective User from Tampa, Fl

Gaston's went far beyond our expectations. The staff is friendly, and did everything we needed without even being asked. Many of our event details were taken care of for us so we could concentrate on our guests. The Chef created a personalized meal that catered to our event, with some very special menu requests and was spectacular. The entire experience of our event was made because of Gaston's and we cannot be more grateful. We will definitely recommend to all of our friends, and even use them again for future events ourselves! Ryan B.

Everyone at the party loved the food and service - and were quite proactive in telling us so both at the party and via communications on both Sunday and today! Even the teenagers told us they loved the food! Many guests told us they loved the freedom of choice - not being forced to a single menu.
