What people are saying about working with Dining Innovations Catering

Absolutely wonderful to work with

Ivan at Dining Innovations was absolutely wonderful to work with! Ivan was pleasant and energetic, he took care of absolutely everything so that I didn’t have to think about it, and went above and beyond on providing the best service to us and our guests for our wedding day! Not to mention the food was absolutely delicious! They really worked with us on our budget and provided a reasonable price for our small wedding (unlike another catering company in town who was super snobbish). I would recommend working with them if you want a stress-free event!

Great communication and we got exactly what we wanted.

This past weekend was our staff holiday party and we chose Dining Innovations as our caterer and from the initial contact to the actual party, the process was easy, there was great communication and we got exactly what we wanted. We contacted them last minute and they were able to get us menus and ideas right away. Working with Ivan for the past month was terrific! The food was excellent and they displayed the buffet and appetizers with class. I can not wait for next year’s holiday party and would definitely work with Ivan and Dining Innovations again!

Extremely happy with Dining Innovations!

Extremely happy with Dining Innovations! They catered our wedding reception and Welcome Party dinner, and we couldn’t have been happier with the quality of service we received. Guests are still raving about the delicious the food and the menu we chose! Ivan was our saving grace as he went above and beyond his call of duty- Not only did he coordinate with our other vendors but he helped us throughout the transition from the ceremony to the reception. He was kind, genuine, and positive- a grounding force for me, my wife, and my parents. They ensured we had all of our leftovers (even delivering large portions to the Doubletree hotel where we were all staying). Ivan showed true leadership for his staff as they were all professional and efficient. There’s a reason why Dining Innovations is the #1 preferred vendor for all venues in Asheville. My sister is getting married next year and we will definitely be using their services again!

Professional and friendly. The food was beyond amazing. Everyone raved!

I highly recommend using Dining Innovations for a wedding caterer. Ivan was quick to respond to my emails and answer any questions that we had. He even followed up with a phone call when I hadn’t yet responded to his email due to being busy with work. We appreciated his attentiveness to us at our wedding, ensuring that we ate during the event. He was kind enough to even fix my sister a plate due to her juggling her 7 month old baby. Ivan was professional and friendly. The food was beyond amazing. Everyone raved about how this was the best wedding food they had every eaten!

Truly cares about making your wedding day exactly what you want it to be

Ivan Nazario-Zapata and all of his staff were amazing! Ivan is so much fun to work with and he truly cares about making your wedding day exactly what you want it to be. (We are sad our paths in life probably won’t pass again.) From making sure the bride had her favorite fried pickles, to an elegant cheese and fruit spread, to the fabulous meal and mojito bar, everything was just as we dreamed. Dining Innovations’ food was delicious. Family and friends have repeatedly said so. Ivan was able to cater to special dietary needs as well as making sure each and every guest had plenty of food and was served in an elegant and convenient way. We would recommend Dining Innovations and Ivan to anyone!!!
