  • Left QuoteI simply wanted to take a minute and draft a letter that is way, way overdue. I echo the sentiments of our entire staff when I say that every event you have catered for Clear Channel Radio - Jacksonville, that have included our Monthly Sales Meetings, Summer Company Picnic, Station Special Events like WQIK's Winter Wonder Jam at Metro Park and our most recent Sports Station "930 The Fox's" Sponsor Luncheon with Gator football coach Ron Zook, HAVE BEEN AWESOME. Your professionalism, presentation, promptness, decoration, attention to detail, quality personnel, food preparation and set up have been nothing short of perfect every time. We appreciate and admire the job you do and are relaxed whenever discussion arises from the smallest events or largest events that we promote, that we know we can pick up the phone and contact you and know, without hesitation, that our catering needs are handled. Thank you and your entire staff for the "Heads Above the Rest" job you do.

Your delectable food, magnificent presentation in keeping with the Florida State colors and theme, and your excellent service helped make the banquet a tremendous success.

  • Left QuoteI want to thank you for a fabulous evening. My retirement party was an absolute success in every way! I had so many calls from my guests commenting about the excellent food and service. You and your staff demonstrated how well you know your business and your clients. As you know, I am a detailed-oriented person, so I hope that you take this as the highest compliment. You exceeded my expectations! My experience through the years with caterers of your caliber has fortunately always been good. I would say that the difference in Anthony’s Catering is the quality of the food, outstanding presentation, and impeccable service. Anthony’s has my highest recommendation.

  • Left QuoteIt has been a pleasure working with Anthony’s Gourmet Catering over the past six years. Since the renovation of the Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts, it has become one of the premier waterfront venues on the First Coast. Anthony’s has played an integral role in the growth and success of the TUCPA and the efforts of your first class organization have not gone unnoticed. Thank you for all your hard work and support over the years.

  • Left QuoteThe management and staff at WJCT Public Broadcasting want to thank you for another wonderful event. When Anthony’s caters a First Coast Society function, we know that every detail will be handled in a professional and outstanding manner. Your friendly and well-trained staff is always attentive to our needs and those of our guests. The wide variety of food you offer is not only delicious but it is always served in an elegant way. Your food, creative layout and imaginative presentations certainly make for a great evening. We constantly hear great remarks from our guests, who often contract our facilities, regarding the superb job you do. Recently, the PBS National Headquarters conducted a nationwide training course for several days here at WJCT. PBS, in their follow-up correspondence, stated that the meals catered by Anthony’s were, by far, the best they had been served anywhere else in the country. Hats off to you and your staff!

  • Left QuoteThank you for all the personal attention you gave my big 80th birthday party. Those who planned it said you were great to work with. So many of my friends are still raving about the wonderful food and how beautifully it was served. I am sure you never need references; however, if you ever should. I would be delighted for you to use my name.

  • Left QuoteAnthony's Catering once again proved to be the correct choice for a Jacksonville Jewish Federation event. The barbecue was absolutely great! It is one thing for the price to be right, as yours was, but it is also so pleasing when everything runs so smoothly, the food is plentiful and tasty, and all the guests are happy. All three of the programs we worked on with you this year have been terrific. I look forward to continuing this excellent relationship in the future.

The service was wonderful and the timing was perfect. Lots of people mentioned how professional and attentive your maitre d' was and how he watched everything, making for the overall success. Please tell the servers what a great job they did. I can't thank you enough for the time and effort you put into making it such a memorable evening for everyone.

You were there with us every step of the way and worked with us to help create an exceptional experience for our customers. The food was marvelous; the extra attention that you put into the decorations at the buffet tables really added that extra special touch. I'm extremely proud of the way the city was showcased that evening and we owe many thanks to you for that.

Every food station received beaucoup raves...I think everyone hit the dessert table first. The stations were displayed so professionally, and looked very colorful and pretty. We knew we could depend on your making the evening just right... everything was so fresh and delicious. Hope you all heard the compliments! Again, accept our heartfelt thanks for a lovely evening. It was just what we had wished it to be.

  • Left QuoteCatering is a viciously competitive and serious business. Obviously the owners of Anthony's have worked devilishly hard to run an operation with a solid word-of-mouth reputation for quality cuisine and service. Having attended many affairs catered by Anthony's, I am a true believer in their ability to deliver a wide variety of high quality food to corporate parties, weddings and eclectic events.

All of the guests commented on how beautiful everything was and how delicious the food was. I received a great deal of compliments on how professional, accommodating and simply wonderful Anthony's staff was and how they took such very good care of us. The evening was magical for my daughter and her guests. I have passed your name to several folks, and I will continue to do so! Thanks again.
