Very happy with food and service

Helena Taylor

I was very happy with the professional and organised way Andrew and his staff organised our catering for our daughters wedding. There was more than enough food and I loved the way they left the kitchen in a tidy manner to how it was when they walked in. I will highly recommend them for any future functions our friends and family may have.

Barbara O'Brien

All the reviews I had read were spot on. Andrew’s communication was faultless and he delivered everything he promised. Our son’s  engagement party was such a memorable night. Andrew showed up on time and incredibly organised. I don’t know where to start with the food. We selected Room 5, sent off our menu choices to Andrew and he contacted us to suggest changing two items to more filling options. That hadn’t crossed my mind so we were very grateful for his input. Our favourites were the meatballs (amazing!), the pork belly, pulled pork sliders with the blue cheese sauce, fish and chips (the caper aioli was so tasty) and the beef and red wine pies. Stefanie was a great waitress; she made her way around our guests so well. They served up the cake like the reviews said, and the kitchen was left spotless. Having Standing Room Only gave us the opportunity to enjoy the night with our family and friends. They are still talking about the food! Thanks again, Barbara & Damon

Andrew, Katherine & Amar catered for our joint 70th birthday party last Saturday night. They were super efficient and extremely obliging. Our guests were very impressed. The food was delicious with a lovely selection and the grandchildren loved the fish and chips. We would not hesitate to recommend Andrew and Standing Room Only to anyone. Darryl and Robina Jorgensen


Andrew was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. As well as providing a great choice of menus, Andrew always got back to me immediately to confirm all details. He and his wait person arrived punctually, set up everything for efficient service and provided a standard of food that all my guests commented on very positively. On completion of the service the kitchen was left spotless. I have no hesitation in recommending Andrew for any catering requirements and he will certainly be my go-to person for future party planning.

Brendan Power

Andrew catered my 50th birthday party for 68 people at the Local Larder in Ashgrove. Everything went so smoothly, the food and  service were impeccable and all the guests were glowing in their feedback.

Amanda & Max

We engaged Andrew to cater for my husband's Birthday party in our home and we could not have been happier with the professionalism, delicious and beautifully presented food along with the ease in which Andrew was to deal with from the first communication of discussing the details of the party to the afternoon of his arrival, where he simply took over the kitchen along with Lisa to leave us to enjoy ourselves. All the guests commented on the food not only for how delicious it was but there was plenty of it. Dietary requirements were easily met and Lisa liased with those guests to ensure they were comfortably looked after. The kitchen was spotless. Thank you Andrew and Lisa for helping us celebrate in style! We will definitely engage you again for our next party. regards Amanda and Max

Jim Perry

Highly recommend SRO as the food was excellent, the chef, Lara, and server, Kathryn, provided unobtrusive service and left the  kitchen sparkling clean. Some of the party attendees hold high level hospitality positions and they were also suitably impressed. The business cards that were left on the end of the kitchen bench were all taken probably assuring SRO of continued business.

Helga & Paul

We would like to thank Andrew and his team for the outstanding quality of service and delicious food they provided for our 80  guests last Saturday. We would definitely use them again for any future event and highly recommend Standing Room Only.


Standing Room Only catered for my farm wedding in Dayboro on the 29th of September. We had raving reviews about the food & the  staff from our 65 guests. Upon arrival, the staff immediately sought out those with dietary requirements & ensured they were fed the correct foods throughout the night. The chef prepared the same foods as everyone else but changed them to suit lactose & gluten intolerant guests - they felt included and well looked after. The staff set aside food for my husband and I to eat after our wedding photos  brought it to our designated location at a time that suited us. They also cut & served our cake which was an additional bonus.  They left my mums kitchen sparkling clean & were friendly and helpful. The highlights were the slow cooked chicken tacos, mushroom truffle pizza, pork sliders & curry pies (we had room 4) but my mother-in-law who sampled everything twice said there wasn’t a bad one! Thanks Andrew & Team!

Annette & Susan

Standing Room Only catered for our 40 guests at my husband's 70th birthday last Saturday. The finger food was delicious & received numerous compliments from guests. The food service was also impeccable. We were especially impressed with the manner in which Stephanie looked after those guests with special dietary requirements. It was a totally professional service all round. Andrew confirmed all details by email, and everything went exactly to plan, with the kitchen left spotless. Thank you Andrew and Stephanie.

Julie Morris

Cannot say enough how wonderful this catering service. We had them for our wedding on the weekend for 42 guests.

You both helped to make the night so stress free for Craig and myself. would recommend in a second.

Standing Room Only Catering one word DELICIOUS. Andrew and his waiters highly professional, food five star, refreshing to find a   small business at the top of the game. Highly recommend.

Joanne Gottardo

Andrew and his team, Albi and Mimi, recently catered for our daughter 21st we had around 60 people. We can not thank Standing Room Only enough for not only the beautiful food and fantastic professional service but for the spotless condition my kitchen was left in, it looked like no-one had been there. I'm glad we went with Andrews menu suggestions too. The food was absolutely delicious and there was so much of it, we even had left overs for lunch the next day. We would 100% recommend Standing Room Only and we will be having them back again for the next 21. Thank you so much Andrew, Albi and Mimi .


This is the second function we have had that Andrew and his team have catered for. We would not dream of ever using anyone else  now. The friendliness, professionalism and delicious food cannot be faulted. Thank you so much for another terrific party!

Denise Wiggins

Thank you for providing a marvellous catering experience for our guests at our recent 70th birthday celebration. While weather   conditions were not ideal, the young lady who served our guests, showed a remarkable attention to detail and soldiered on with a happy smile. Your suggestions regarding menu combinations were spot on and quality of food and presentation was first class. Thank you Andrew.

Michelle K

I engaged the services of Standing Room Only for my 40th birthday party last weekend, after being at a wedding they had catered for some time ago. I had 40 guests and was working to a budget. I was so impressed by Andrew's relaxed and professional manner, with nothing being too much trouble. He took the time to explain all details to me, so I knew exactly what to expect. When Martin our chef and Monique our waitress arrived on the night, I knew we were in extremely capable hands. Both were very efficient, professional, extremely courteous to myself, my family, and our guests. They were so particular about me enjoying my night and not having to do a thing! I was at ease knowing that they had everything under control. The food was sensational, the kitchen was left spotless, and our guests had plenty of positive feedback to offer. I would absolutely encourage anyone to engage the services of Andrew and his team to make your event a classy, stress-free affair. I know where I'll be heading for all my catering needs for future events! Thanks a million guys!

Kathy Smith

Andrew and his fabulous staff recently catered for my mothers 90th Birthday. The girls were very professional and courteous, and  the food was just out of this world. My family are still talking about the food, especially the Mushroom and Truffle Oil Pizza, thank you Andrew for recommending this. And my kitchen was left absolutely spotless. Would have no hesitation in recommending Standing Room Only, thank you once again Andrew.


Thank you Andrew and your wonderful team. Last Saturday night was a great night made very easy with your fantastic cocktail finger foods. It was cooked and presented to a very high standard and served seamlessly with a happy and very engagely manner. Thank you again

Julia McKenny

We engaged Andrew's company to cater for our son's 21st birthday celebration with 45 family guests attending. I can't praise  Standing Room Only high enough for exceptional food and service. From the moment our chef Stephane arrived until he and our waitress Jackie left our home, they worked like a well oiled machine in delivering beautiful food in an extremely efficient manner. So many guests commented on the quality and freshness of the food as Jackie and Steph quietly and efficiently worked away making it a breeze for me to host the party. I would thoroughly recommend this company and look forward to using them again for the next milestone event.


Andrew and his team recently catered for my husbands birthday party and I am so pleased that I choose them. From the beginning Andrew was so easy to deal with and very helpful deciding menu etc. The wait staff were delightful, professional and friendly. The food was so tasty and delicious! All our guests commented on quality and choice of food, as well as the way it was presented and served. The kitchen was left spotless. All this helped make our night run so smoothly and stress free. Well done Andrew and his team! I would highly recommend Standing Room Only and will definitely use their catering services again.

Catherine Perez

I attended my BIL's 60th on Saturday evening just past and was blown away by the high quality and delicious food selections offered. The Chef superb and the staff so professional. The only disappointment I have is the fact that the Company is in Brisbane and I am in Sydney. If I could give 10stars to this outfit I would. Well done and thank you from a guest

Chris Quagliata

Andrew has organised the catering for us on two occasions so far and I would recommend him and Standing Room Only if you want  great food without any fuss. Having Andrew certainly made the parties a great success and many people commented on the food's high standard. They take over the kitchen with such efficiency and when they are finished you would hardly know they were there. We'll be back again I am sure. Thanks for two great nights so far.

Lily Fleming

Andrew and his team were exceptional throughout the process, from booking through to execution and clean up. They catered for my    wedding and did such a wonderful job. The food was outstanding - many guests praising both the food and service. I would definitely choose Standing Room Only again.

Jemma Scales

I chose Standing Room Only to cater my 30th Birthday Party. Andrew was prompt in replying to me enquiry and we soon had the ball  rolling for planning my 30th Birthday. On the day the wonderful chef and waitress arrived on time and their conduct was friendly and professional. The food was absolutely delicious and was more than enough to go around to my guests. Further more Olympia the waitress was so attentive and made sure everyone who needed a drink had one. Once the party was complete you would not even have known anyone was in our kitchen. They left everything spotless and tidy. Thank you again Standing Room Only, you made my party so relaxing not having to worry about anything. I would not hesitate to use their services again!

Gaynor Walton

I was drawn to Standing Room Only because of the reviews it had from previous clients and so glad I went with them. Andrew was  quick to respond to my enquiry and explained how it all worked. I booked a date in for my 50th. I am glad that Andrew recommended having 2 chefs and 2 waitresses as there was no wait for the food at all, it just kept coming out. I went with the room 3 option and my only concern was whether there would be enough food. Andrew reassured me that there would and for me not to worry about cheese platters or nibbles as it would spoil peoples appetite. So I went with his suggestion. I am also glad that I went with having 2 waitresses. One of the waitresses arrive early, and she put on her apron, and started washing up a few empty lunch dishes that I did not get the chance to do before they arrived. The food was so well presented and by having 2 experienced people bring out the platters made it all look so lovely. The waitresses were polite, efficient and helpful throughout the night. They even offered to cut the cake (that we supplied) and presented it on a white platter and took it around – that was a lovely extra gesture. I was specific with what time the speeches should be, and they were right on to it, breaking the food service and taking their own break at this time. I loved how the chefs were dressed up, and how they cooked everything in the background. We had so many compliments about the food which was great. At the end of the night the chef grabbed the Dyson, and off he went vacuuming my kitchen!! Would I use again – yes. Would I recommend – yes. THNAK YOU ANDREW.


Dear Andrew, Thank you again for your service this past New Years Eve. I spoke to many companies prior to selecting you. I chose  you based on the confidence you instilled in me following our very first conversation. You discusses every concern and allayed all of my worries immediately. You promised no one would go hungry, the drops would ensure everyone had access and that the food would be beautifully presented. You delivered on every promise. On the night you and your staff were well presented, relaxed, efficient and ensured the event ran in the most professional manner. I cannot thank you enough for making our event run so smoothly. I would highly recommend your business and look forward to enjoying your amazing menu again. Kind regards Karen - 2016


It was without hesitation that we asked Andrew to cater for Natalie's 50th birthday celebration. Andrew's superb food and Liz's  friendly and attentive service made for a memorable evening. Our guests all thought the catering was exceptional, especially the pork belly! We will continue to recommend you to our family and friends and look forward to having you cater for our next event. Kind regards Philip and Natalie


I can't thank Andrew enough for catering my 21st Casino Party - it was a huge success! Andrew was always happy to assist us with any queries we had even suggesting canapes for our guests. Our waiter, Asher, made sure our friends helping serving drinks at the bar were left food on a napkin so they didn't miss out on any courses during the night. The nine options on the cocktail menu were amazing and there were great vegetarian options - my friends especially loved the basil and tomato pizza and the meatballs! Asher knew all of the courses and greeted everyone - he even helped by cleaning up the used skewers and napkins throughout the night. It was wonderful for us to enjoy the party and not have to worry about the food. My family and I had a fantastic night and would definitely recommend Standing Room Only for future events!

Nicolle Gegg

Thank you so much for providing the catering for our office opening. When I was researching to find someone to cater for our function, I came across your website and it was your testimonials that lead me to make an initial enquiry with you. You contacted me immediately about how you could help us and nothing was a problem, my decision was made. Your service was outstanding not to mention the food. We have had many compliments from clients and colleagues about the selection and quality of food and I do believe that you were an integral part of our office opening being the success it was. I would like to make a special mention to your wait staff who were just fabulous. There was plenty of positive feedback about how special they made our guests feel on the night, again nothing was a problem. I will certainly be recommending your company to anyone who requires a professional and quality catering company and we will definitely be using your services in the future. Thanks again. Kind regards, Nicole Gegg LJ Hooker Clayfield

Standing Room Only offered great service and delicious menu to our group at Veolia. Everyone at the lunch enjoyed the food very much. My experience with Andrew has been nothing but a pleasure. Andrew and his staff are very professional & very accommodating. I will definitely use Andrew again in our next corporation function. Cindy W. Veolia


Thank you for helping at my 40th - the catering was delicious, everyone commented on it and I had a wonderful relaxed stress free  evening with the staff serving food and drinks. Every time you turned around someone was at your side with a new platter. My only mistake was talking so much and missing some of the dishes as they were gobbled up! There was loads of food and I really appreciated the Chef leaving the last few tasty treats to finish up. Would certainly use you again. Cheers Margi


Thank you once again for a fabulous food and beverage service. I have had so many phone calls complementing us on your work, and how great the food was and what a pleasure it was to be attended by such polite staff who knew exactly what they were doing... We cannot praise you enough - it all went off perfectly. Thanking you once again - Jean F


Our guests loved the food, thought that the amount was great and we have given your card to a number of them. I personally think your food and service is the best we have used and certainly the best of those we have experienced at other functions. The kitchen was clean and tidy, including a very thorough job of the cooktop and splash back tiles and the oven. I expected to have to clean these as this has been my experience in the past. The great food and friendly, unobtrusive service really contributed to my enjoyment of the night. We will certainly contact you for any future functions and will recommend you to our friends. Regards- Susan


Thank you so much for the fantastic food and service last night. I keep hearing from people about how delightful they found your  assistants – I think that their friendliness made the event much more personal and enjoyable. I look forward to the next event for which we can ask for your help! Kind regards, John M


Wedding cocktail event. Thank you again for your wonderful food and the amazing staff (including yourself) on Saturday.  I would just like to say how impressed we were with the outstanding food and professional service from your staff. It made a wonderful afternoon even better and we will certainly be recommending you to our friends and will not hesitate to book you again for future functions". Natalie & Luke


Standing room Only catered my 40th party and made the event more than memorable. Andrew and his team were friendly, helpful and professional. The food produced for the night was tasty, plentiful and first class. I would have no hesitation in recommending Standing Room Only for similar events.

Christine Andreasen

Dear Andrew and team,I just wanted to say "thank you". On October 12 2013, your gorgeous team swept in on time, beautifully groomed and cooked up a storm for our 105 wedding guests. The food proceeded to come out promptly, it tasted divine and it was very well presented. From the moment I saw your menu, I just knew it was going to be special. All of our contact with Andrew was delightful and professional and informative. I have had so many compliments on my choice of caterers and nearly each guest made comment on the quality and variety of the food. It was just such an amazing feat, this delicious food just kept on coming.Ours was a 1920's Gatsby affair and Standing room only contributed to making it a magical evening. In short, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend "Standing Room Only", they are outstanding. Christine and Alan Andreassen


Sharyn and myself would like to thank you for the impeccable service and professionalism shown by Stephan and quality of food supplied by your company all guests were impressed. I would not hesitate in recommending your company to our friends and work colleagues. Thanks again for an enjoyable experience.
