I am the mother of the bride and from the day I first contacted Classic City Catering and spoke with Lauren, I was impressed with her responsiveness and professionalism. She offered a tasting for the future bride and groom to help them with menu choices. (everything was mouth-wateringly delicious! – they allowed me to join them for the tasting) The bride and groom made a couple of food item requests that weren’t on the suggested menu lists and David was more than happy (and excited) to accommodate. He also offered to assist in arranging for our dance floor and band staging needs. On the evening of the wedding, the entire staff was attentive, efficient and polite. The food stations were set up beautifully and the food was absolutely delicious. We heard many rave reviews from our guests. I would recommend Classic City Catering to anyone in need of a catering service for any event.-Thanks Janet

Classic City Catering provided excellent service and even better food!! The food far exceeded my expectations. The presentation at my wedding was elegant and romantic. Everyone that I encountered that worked for Classic City was professional and did a superb job. If any bride chooses Classic City as their caterer, they will not be disappointed!! – Brittany- Bride

This organization is run by a professional. David Penniman is the consummate chef, event planner, host and “go to” person for everyone I know in Northwest Florida. He has a vibrant staff who are not only fully certified and tested; they are courteous, professional and often go beyond what is expected of them in terms of the glamorous events that I have watched them host through the years. David and his staff have my utmost respect and appreciation for the many events I have hosted over the last twenty years. – Thanks Nancy – MOG

Classic City exceeded my expectations as a catering company. My wedding went off without a hitch with the help of their wonderful employees! The food was delicious and everyone loved it; we even received a picnic basket with leftovers, champagne and glasses, and a slice of wedding cake my husband and I shared that night in our hotel room! I didn’t even have to wait in line to make a plate – they made one for me! Not to mention they helped with setting up and taking down tables, chairs and decorations. I would recommend classic city to anyone needing catering services! – Natalie
