I used Arena as the caterer for my wedding reception (we didn't have a choice as they are the contracted caterer for the Hoogland Center for the Arts, where we had booked our reception venue). They did an OUTSTANDING job. WE had about 200 guests. We paid about $11 per head (food only) and had a fantastic buffet that everyone raved about.... Blackened chicken, southwestern rice with black beans, seasonal vegetables, french breads, mostaccolli, a fantastic salad of dark greens, berries and walnuts tossed in a vinaigrette dressing... It was wonderful. And the chicken wasn't that cafeteria style processed chicken-like stuff.... It was real, juicy, thick white chicken breasts that were wonderfully seasoned.
Not only was the food outstanding and the price was right but the service was great. There were so many more servers there when we got to our receptiont han we would ever have imagined (not too many, there were just more than we had anticipated) which was great because they kept the tables looking tidy and clean and were able to slice our wedding cake quickly and carefully while our guests were watching a slideshow...
Arena also provided the bar service for us. $190 per keg of BL and ML. Sounds awful but apparently that's about avg for catering. Bottles of wine were $15 each. Bar service was decent. Not bad, but could have been better.
Overall though, we were thrilled with Arena and would definitely recommend them to friends.
