Not even a caterer!! He sells real estate!! – What is there to say about Don Muntean..... Well, he is rude, unprofessional, and NOT EVEN A CATERER!! HE IS A REAL ESTATE AGENT FOR CLINT WILLIAMS!!! I had him caterer my wedding at the grand pacific hotel (only because he was the only option) and i will never recommend the facility and or don muntean and his catering company to anyone!! Don met me at the location 2 days before.. he did not greet me or have a nice chat with me it was "this is your set up" and you need to set up your own tables... it was only when my husband and the best man came in that he was semi nice to me.. The day of the wedding, we had the beef tips and noodles and the beef was so fatty that you could not chew it. The wait staff was rude and made my guests uncomfortable with their smart ass comments such as "its not my job to clear the table but maybe you shouldn't drink so much" and " looks like your having your own private party over here" and "I'll get you water when i get to it"... These are not outlandish requests from people.... IT IS YOUR JOB!! My guests had to wait for plates because they ran out.. yet i was under my initial count... and to top it all off....... THERE WERE ANTS ON 5 DIFFERENT TABLES!!!! My wedding was amazing.... my reception was a NIGHTMARE!! Don Muntean would not know good food and or good customer service if it bit him on the ass!! If anyone is considering uses this "business" please do yourself and your guests a favor and go to GFS and SAM'S CLUB or COSTCO yourself and call yourself the caterer... that is where he gets his food from anyways!!
A great place to have your event – During my capacity as a administrator for a government agency I have frequently used the services of Muntean's Catering for a variety of functions. I would highly recommend Don Muntean and his staff for any type of function that needs to be held at your business. The staff is professional and courteous and willing to do whatever you need, I never had to worry or be concerned when Muntean's catered our functions, as they always were "on top of things" wihich was a comfort to me. The food is excellent whether you have a sit-down affair, a buffet, or picnic menu. You will definitely get what you pay for, and then some!
Unforgettable wedding reception – My wedding reception was held at the Grand Pacific Junction and catered by Muntean's catering. Throughout the process, Don Muntean was very courteous and knowledgable. He helped me plan a wonderful cocktail hour and sit down dinner for around 100 guests. I can't say enough how please I am with my reception.
The cocktail hour was primarily held in the bar area and I could have stayed there all night! There were at least 10 different appetizers, including shrimp cocktail that were huge and very fresh. Those were very popular with everyone. The bartenders were quick and professional, you never had to wait long for a drink.
We then had a wonderful sit down dinner of salad, chicken, potatoes and vegetables. The food was delicious, everything was the right temperature, set up was gorgeous, etc. I could not have been more pleased! Also, I wanted to compliment the servers—they were friendly, professional and efficient.
It has been months since my wedding and I still get compliments when I see one of my guests. They say it's one of the best wedding receptions they have ever attended. I'm a little older so my friends and family have been to many receptions in their time so that is quite a compliment.
Thank you to Don and his staff for making my wedding reception such a success. Great job and keep up the good work!
Very Surprised! – When I was looking up Muntean's to schedule another event, I was surprised to see a negative review. I have used Muntean's catering for a number of events. My bridal shower at the Grand Pacific Hotel, my wedding in the Berea metro-parks, as well as my sisters baby shower. The food and the service was wonderful at all 3 events, so much so, I'm going to be using his services again for an anniversary party. I feel bad that the lady had a poor pork experience, but I've had nothing but rave reviews at all 3 of my parties!
Go elsewhere for your reception food when using the Grand Pacific Wedding Chapel – I got married at the Grand Pacific Wedding Chapel in Olmstead Falls which was simply gorgeous. It was not the chapel that was the problem.... it was the caterer Don Muntean that caused the stress. First of all I had to fight to be able to decorate the basement of the chapel the night before my evening reception..... He gave us 15 minutes & kept warning us about the time.... then said he was locking the door in 1 minute. We could not even put the rest of the flowers in the room because he locked the door and left.... as we sat on the porch in amazement. It would have only taken us 2 minutes to put them on the tables. ONLY 15 minutes he gave us.... to set up a glamourous wedding reception. I have never heard of such a thing. Surprisingly he was not even present during my wedding reception which was to be a formal sit down dinner. The cooks put the food on the plates and in the warmer at 7:30 pm and served them at 8:30 pm... that's a WHOLE HOUR UNDER HEAT. The pork was so dry and only parially edible.... the apricot chutney had "dry skin" on it. The roasted rosemary potatoes were so hard that it made a loud "clank" when I dropped it on my plate. The servers were very appologetic. We would have been better off paying less money and having a buffet. At least the food would have stayed in a large pan and stayed moist. My wedding was an embarrassment . All the guests stated that it was the driest wedding food they have ever had. They felt so bad for me. One guest (a nun) even called him to let him know about the poor food. It took me many months to heal from this.... as everyone just remembers the poor food. My cake. thank goodness, was wonderful. I got a Raspberry Truffle cake from Colazza's off Ridge Rd. They saved my night. As for Don Muntean.... he has very poor customer service and is just plain errogant. I would use the Chapel but go somewhere else for your reception.
