"What a fantastic Thanksgiving! You made it all happen and we could not be more grateful. Although tired from our day of skiing, we were eager to dine on the delicacies you created. The kids are still talking about the "pigs in a blanket." We thank you for the "traditional" meal. I remember coming home from college one Thanksgiving, my Mother decided to make lasagna – I cried! Nothing better than tradition! We recommend you and Lane and will most definitely call again."

"Jimmy was the best choice we could have made for a chef for our wedding. We had a catering company that fell through (we didn't know about Bravo when we confirmed with the first company). Jimmy invited us to his house for the tasting and took photos of us to remember the night. It was a small gesture but made me excited about the process again after quite an ordeal with the other company. Then we got to the food. It was amazing. From the meeting over the phone, the food captured exactly what we were looking for. Then, throughout the tasting, we built the exact menu and service for it that matched what my fiancé and I were envisioning (probably better). We wanted pies for dessert at our wedding (no cake) and after that tasting we hands down asked if he would make those as well. At the wedding, every guest left talking about the food. Jimmy even came out after the pies were served (which were amazing) and he joined in the reception for a few songs. Everyone wanted to dance with the chef and I have the pictures to prove it of me in wedding dress dancing it up with chef Jimmy. Anytime someone in the valley is having a party, we always recommend chef Jimmy and Bravo Catering. Thank you Jimmy for not just making my night but helping to create such amazing memories and I hope you and your food can be a part of many more to come."

"Wow! What a weekend. Jeff and I are pooped! I cannot tell you what a delight it was getting to know you. You are a warm and wonderful man! We had so many compliments on the service and the AMAZING food! Thank you for all your hard work. Drew and Dillon have shared with us how very happy they are with their wedding evening and how they really enjoyed the wonderful buffet you prepared for their special night. I do believe you may be getting calls from a couple of nervous “mothers of the brides to be.” We will be in touch with you for all our special life events! Once again, thank you! Please tell your staff, it was a pleasure having them service us!"
~ Jeff and Brenda Simonson
"Absolutely Fantastic!!! We received great comments on the food. Everyone loved that you featured healthy food - all the veggie options, the pastas, and the nice healthy chicken option. The tennis ball cupcakes were a huge hit as well and went in a flash!

Thank you, Bravo!"
~ Pam Britton, River Valley Ranch & The United States Tennis Association, Carbondale, CO
