Super ImpressedWe were so impressed with your organisation and how calm you were the entire night. The marquee looked amazing and everything was perfect. We weren't called about any problems that may have occurred during the day and were so impressed. We have gotten so many comments about the quality of the food and how well the event was run - including some from those whose jobs are in event management. A few people described yourself and a 'tall blonde girl' who worked so hard during the night. Drinks were flowing endlessly. So well done. You even got a soft serve and brought it out mid speech. And helped so quickly when we wanted a champagne bottle AS WELL as last minute door prizes. So super impressed. Would recommend the team any day.

50th ExtravaganzaI just wanted to say thankyou, for helping make Adrian’s night such a special and memorable one! What a night! The feedback from everyone was that the food was sensational, especially the seafood station. Thankyou for the little extras that you thought of, it really did make for a unique occasion. All of your staff were fabulous, and did a great job keeping up with the cocktail swilling party goers. Thanks again
Formal Sit DownEveryone was wrapped with how the event went! The feedback regarding food from our guests was overwhelmingly positive. A bunch of the Players had been to lunch at The Witches Cauldron the day earlier and said that their experience on Saturday was far superior, not bad given the timeframes, space and facility constraints, I gave you guys! Thanks again for your help, and no doubt we will see you again soon.

The Royal Agricultural SocietyUltimo has taken over all of The Rural Agricultural Society’s catering since 200, including the Perth Royal Show. The level of professionalism and quality of food they have brought to our organisation has been excellent. Their timely and friendly presentation of service has been exceptional over the years. The RAS entertains a cross section of high-profile individuals including foreign diplomats, politicians, the Governor of Western Australia and a selection of VIPs who have all commented on the quality of food and service provided. I highly recommend Ultimo to organise any function or event, large or small.

50th Birthday PartyI held an event on Saturday night at my home to celebrate my husband’s 50th birthday. The service I received from Vanessa was outstanding and she managed to put everything together with limited notice. She even did some work over the weekend and called me on Saturday during the day to ensure the hired equipment had arrived. On the evening, Tony, Nathaniel and the Chef were absolutely superb!! Their professionalism and customer attentiveness was first class and made my night so easy. The quality of your staff and catering product was noted by several of the guest who requested business cards from Tony for their own future events. I wanted to bring attention to the fabulous people you have at Ultimo - they are real assets to your business.

Dream WeddingThank you to Ultimo Catering for helping to create our dream wedding. Choosing to hold our wedding in a marquee at my parent’s home meant we had total control of the styling and ambiance of our wedding. Ultimo’s professional service made for a stress-free evening - we wanted it untroubled and relaxed and Ultimo’s expertise ensured every box was ticked. They were totally flexible - we basically made up a whole new menu – and the food was excellent quality. We had a ball because we had our wedding exactly the way we wanted it.

You're just the bestI don’t actually have the words to express our thanks to you for everything you have done for us to make our day so magical. The amount of food, quality of food and service were absolutely raved about from our guests. There was absolutely no faulting anything on your end - our families were so incredibly happy. The effort you went to in securing the TV and organising the video to play for us was unbelievable. We were so shocked and happy and it was just the best. It definitely set the mood and tone of the night and something that we will appreciate forever. And just the many emails you responded to. Through a venue change and Covid postponement it was certainly much more of an effort and we so appreciate everything you did for us through all the changes. We simply could not have asked better service or experience with Ultimo. And please pass along our thanks to the rest of the team who worked Saturday night - they were all so great. You’re just the best, Hollie! So happy to have met you and thank you again for making our day so amazing!

On Demand CateringWe have been using on-demand catering for a while now and are extremely pleased with the service that Ultimo provides. We receive positive comments from our members all the time on the delicious food and it just takes a few minutes to order online. The Deliverable Feasts are excellent with more than enough to feed everyone plus leftovers. I cannot recommend Ultimo highly enough!

On Demand CateringFood was really good. Pretzels were a major hit as were the Chou Chous and the individual Salads. Food is always delivered on time and exceeds expectations. It is a pleasure to business with you guys!
Wake venuesI have to commend Ultimo on their great food and service. I specifically requested the afternoon to not be a sad time but more of a celebration, and that really filtered through on the day. From the staff’s friendly attitude to the venues they were able to recommend; all located 5 minutes from the cemetery, the wake couldn’t have run more smoothly. Thanks again
Afternoon DelightA note of THANKS to let you know that the catering for this afternoon tea was excellent. The choices for the selection of food both savoury and sweets was delightful and the team thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you once again.
On Demand CateringUltimo Catering is a favourite with our staff and clients. The On - Demand catering menu is top quality and always well presented. Attention to detail means our orders are delivered directly to our catering kitchen and sometimes even put into the fridge! Their two hour minimum order time makes catering for last minute meetings stress free. We know that if we order with Ultimo we have lots of yummy options and we will never be disappointed.”

Corporate Christmas Party - Quay to the AmazonI just want to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to the Ultimo Team for all your work in the lead up as well as on the night. I can not recommend the Ultimo company enough. Not only did you and the team make the organizing an absolute breeze, the detail and professionalism on the night by all staff was nothing short of superb! Nothing was ever too much trouble - from taking care of the ticket sales and providing regular updates, to even extending the event on the night when the CEO made the request at 9:50pm (10 mins before it was meant to close)– even meeting the last minute request of having a lectern and stand alone mic for speeches!! The Ultimo customer service really is above and beyond. I had numerous emails flooding my inbox on Friday from staff raving about what a great night it was! The layout was fantastic for our size group (roughly 300ish I believe) as there was plenty of room to move without the place feeling empty. Both the drinks and food menus were fab – so many people made the comment of how fast the service was. We had a very challenging budget to work with, and what you were able to provide for that budget was absolutely incredible
Amazing & Attentive ServiceI wanted to send a HUGE thank you specifically to yourself for all of the hard work organising our big day and to Tony for his amazing & attentive service on the night, plus to the whole team for putting together a seamless evening. I am so happy with how everything came together and I have had nothing but perfect compliments about the food, service & atmosphere on the night.

Marquee Xmas PartyOur Christmas function was very successful and this had a lot to do with Ultimo and the marquee they organised at Ozone Reserve. They took care of the logistics, great food and drink package and supplied friendly staff. There certainly was a wow factor with the design and layout of the marquee. Clark was a delight to deal with and certainly made my job a lot easier! We would be very happy to recommend Ultimo and would have no hesitation in using Ultimo again, not only for Christmas functions but other events during the year.

Corporate EventThank you for the event of Friday - it really was outstanding. I have had several people who attend lots of corporate events say to me that "That was the best event I have attended in at least the last 5 years" So thank you! The attention to detail of the whole day, from breakfast at registration to the superb lunch, the events themselves and finally the awards at the end was exemplary. Normally as the person who has signed the event off, I spend the day worrying if it will be a success, but this was one of those rare events when I could submerse myself in the day and enjoy it, knowing that you had everything covered. A brilliant day, one that shall be long talked about!
Sandwiches were a hitThanks so much for Friday. The food was beautiful, plenty of it and on time. Normally sandwiches aren’t something guests rave about, but wow we had some outstanding comments! Several people also mentioned that we have raised the bar with this conference and that was due solely to the food provided. So, as far as feedback goes the whole thing was perfect. The young delivery man was extremely pleasant and went all out to do anything to help. Thanks again and will call on you for future events. All the best.

Magical WeddingWe had a magical wedding reception thanks to Ultimo! We were blown away by the extraordinary food and super friendly service, it truly exceeded our expectations. We were a bit daunted by designing the menu, but Clark understood what we wanted and he just led us toward a superb combination of flavours. The staff went above and beyond for us and our guests and many have since commented on how impressed they were. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the best day of our lives.

On Demand CateringI have been a corporate business customer of Ultimo Catering for over 2 years now. Ultimo have always been extremely helpful and timely with their service. Ultimo are never late for delivery, and always happy to take on last minute orders, and changes at our request which is fantastic for us as we are usually extremely busy. I have recommended Ultimo to other professionals for their corporate events as the quality and service is always consistent and never disappoints.
