I need to let those of you planning weddings how absolutley wonderful and amazing Rick and his extensive staff are at Emily's Catering. Rick is a true professional who from day one makes you feel comfortable and confident that your event will be flawless and that he has it all under control. The food choices are extensive, wonderfully prepared and beautiful presented. His attention to detail and the taste and quality of the food is truly amazing. From incredible brisket, salmon, and chicken entrees to extensive appetizers that often come with a side shot of margaritas and soups--they are to die for. Their beef lamb chops, Emily's pizza, tuna tartare, duck and wild mushroom quesadillas, franks and jackets, pulled pork sliders were all out of this world. The guests all raved about the food for days and deservedly so. The prices are exceedingly fair for what they deliver plus they include numerous surprises for you on the day of the wedding. They are absolutely the best. If you want the catering of your wedding, which is such a big part of the event, to be the best that you can imagine, this is the place to go. You and your guests will be thrilled that you did and the service and setups will be seamless.
Hats off to you and your team! Emily's Catering made my wedding spectacular.
The food was excellent, the service was fantastic, and your team worked so independently that you made it stress free for me, my husband, and family.
Our guests thought the food was delicious and plentiful - believe me no one went home hungry or sober for that matter - and we would love to give special mention to Linda who seamlessly orchestrated the entire evening. She was so helpful, made sure everything arrived on time, and was a huge help during breakdown. We could not have asked for a better captain.
I cannot begin to tell you how appreciative I am of all the hard work. The team made the night a success, and I am grateful for those memories.
We had Emily's Cater our wedding reception at Webb Barn in Wethersfield CT. They did a fantastic job, and the food was amazing. Our guests were consistently commenting on how this was the best wedding food they ever had. Additionally during the months spent planning the wedding, Cheryl in the office is extremely responsive and helpful, and was great to work with. Emily's was also very flexible, and met several last minute requests we had. It was a pleasure working with Emily's Catering, They serve excellent food, are very professional, and I would highly recommend them to anyone.
Rick and his team worked my wedding of 144 guests. From the day of the tasting to the wedding day, Emily's was amazing. They helped my husband and I in every way possible and to totally made the planning process so easy and fun. The food was amazing- everyone is still raving about it. They did more than just cater the event, they made it perfect from set up to break down. The staff was so friendly and helped my florist out, too. And Cheryl in the office is the best!! Highly recommend!
Rick, Cheryl, Linda, and the Emily's crew did an amazing job setting up and cooking for my wedding. The food was excellent and we had rave reviews from our guests. They thought (and so did we) that it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding! Thank you so much for all of your help and hard work. Rick came up with an awesome menu, Cheryl promptly answered any quesions we had along the way, and Linda was instrumental in making sure our special day ran smoothly. Thank you so much! I would definitely recommend Emily's if you need a great wedding cater!
Emily's Catering exceeded my expectations. They went above and beyond for our wedding! We truly didn't have to worry about a thing, they had everything covered! The food was amazing. We have had multiple guests contacting us for your information they loved it so much! Our guests were ranting about how delicious your food was!! Thank you for doing such an amazing job! I highly recommend!
I don't know where to begin! They were AMAZING! Throughout the entire process, we knew we were putting our wedding in good hands! RIck was so accommodating and helpful in making our perfect day come together the way they wanted- he just kept saying YES! The service was stellar- but it doesn't hold a candle to the FOOD! Our guests are STILL raving! The cocktail hour had everything we asked for, and more, and when it was done, our guests weren't sure they could even eat more food! (But of course, it was so delicious- they all did!) Dessert had them raving even more- they accommodated all specific little requests- like grown up root beer floats :) that were a hit! A must have- their tiramisu. It's like nothing you've ever had before, and I think my husband ate 10 of them. My husband and I had a few tastes here and there throughout the night for the most part, and at the end of the night were sad we hadn't eaten more. Fortunately, they had put together a doggie bag for us and we enjoyed our own FULL mean the next day, reliving all the moments! Working with them was so easy and they were so responsive- the night ran just as smoothly as we had a hoped!
Thank you for all you hard work! We will certainly spread good things about your company.
From my first interaction with Emily’s Catering Group to my last, it was always a pleasure. My fiancé and I had our hearts set on serving BBQ at our wedding. We were having a lot of trouble finding a caterer that was able to serve BBQ plated and presented nicely. When I spoke with Rick for the first time he told me it would absolutely not be a problem. His confidence made my fiancé and I feel at ease. After the tasting we knew for sure Emily’s Catering Group was the way to go. Anytime I had any issues and reached out to Cheryl she responded within hours and anytime my fiancé and I wanted to make a change or tweak the menu a bit it was not an issue. The flexibility was fantastic. The day of the wedding the food was just as good as our tasting. My favorite, the mac and cheese! All our guests are still ranting about how good the food during cocktail hour was and how inventive the duck quesadillas being served with mini shots of tequilas was. I would highly recommend Rick’s services.
The wedding was wonderful and so were you! It was an absolute pleasure to work with you. You went over and beyond the call of duty and it did not go unnoticed.
Rick and the entire team at Emily's were amazing from the day we reached out to them. Our wedding was being held in NYC and sadly, all of the caterers we were referred to were quite off-putting. Our initial conversations made it clear that we were just another couple on their list and we were given nothing by way of personal consideration. That is, until we met Rick Kerzner.
After pouring through hundreds of reviews of caterers in the tri-state area, I found Emily's Catering and their reviews on sites like WeddingWire intrigued me enough to reach out. While I wasn't sure it would be feasible to have a non-NYC based caterer come in for the event, Rick made it clear that it would be no different than his other events that he travels for. He invited us to their amazing facility in Bristol and we were blown away. He treated us to more than just a delicious meal (a meal we still talk about today). He treated us like family and took the time to get to know us and what we wanted. He never tried to up-sell, he was just honest. He asked about our budget and then built out a menu based on that.
Rick offered us so much more than the other caterers we spoke with. While many of them either didn't offer rentals, linens, etc. or massively up-charged you for them, Rick built this into his pricing so that we could get an honest estimate of the total costs up front. He showed us his kitchen facilities and they were pristine, organized and stocked with quality brands that as foodies, we know and love. Rick doesn't cut corners - he is patient, his team is talented and most importantly on a day like this, he is honest and flexible. Emily's Catering actually helped relieve our stress. They never made us feel uncomfortable asking for anything and I remember on the day-of, thinking that nothing could possibly go wrong with Rick's team in place, because they would figure it out. And the food? Unbelievably delicious.
Don't even know where to begin with this review. Rick and Cheryl from Emily's were absolutely incredible. I've never heard of a couple getting thank you notes from their guesting after a wedding complimenting the incredible food they had at the wedding, but got multiple ones. Not only was the food delicious, but the presentation was a 10. So many guests commented on how cool and creative all the appetizers and desserts looked, and were delicious on top of it all. The staff was incredibly attentive and the bartenders were awesome. When the dance party moved outside, the bartenders handled the extra volume flawlessly. They were engaging with guests and really helped the party flow.
After the wedding, they packaged up a lot of our things and took them back to their office, and kept them for 2 weeks while we were on our honeymoon so we wouldn't have to worry about it, taking a huge burden off our shoulders!
I would strongly recommend Emily's to anyone who loves food and doesn't want to worry about anything on their wedding day.
Rick, Cheryl and the staff of Emily's were absolutely incredible for our daughter's wedding on 9/13/14 at the Branford House in CT. I have gotten so many comments from guests about the quality of the food and the extreme responsiveness and professionalism of the staff. The staff were attentive, without being intrusive. Many guests said it was the best food they ever had at a wedding. We felt that we got excellent quality with reasonable cost. There was a delay in the start of the ceremony and people were ready to eat and drink as soon as the ceremony was over. The staff made sure that they got the food out to the guests as soon as the ceremony was over. The bar was well managed so that there was not a big line. The coffee bar and small desserts were a huge hit! The bride and groom were well cared for throughout the evening and were very happy with their choice of caterer. I would highly recommend Emily's for wedding or other catering event.
Emily's Catering Group was absolutely incredible. Emily's catered our September 13th wedding at our family farm. Throughout the entire process, Rick and Cheryl were top notch. Day or night, they were there for assistance or advice. They made the planning a breeze with their knowledge and experience. We had an outdoor wedding and low and behold, it rained. The crew put on rain gear and didn't seemed to be phased whatsoever. Everyone on the team for our wedding made sure everything was perfect. Constantly checking on us throughout the night, making sure my husband and I got to eat and enjoy the food, which is many bride/groom complaints that they didn't get to eat. We took pictures immediately following the ceremony. Appetizers and drinks were passed around to all of us as well. We had someone tending to us the entire evening. The food was absolutely phenomenal! We had decided on doing stations and it was perfect. Our guests could not get over that we had lobster at our wedding. The bartenders were great! Warm and bubbly personalities and our guests really enjoyed their professionalism. We had a basic chocolate cake with buttercream frosting...it was the best cake I have ever tasted. My parents ate it for days after we left for our honeymoon! At the end of the night, all of the food was packaged up and given to our family. We were very impressed how the crew had cleaned up. Everything was put back to exactly where it was when they arrived. They even took the trash with them! That made clean-up the following day a breeze.
All in all, we would recommend Emily's to anyone looking for an amazing company for any kind of function. We cannot thank them enough for helping us with our special day. It truly was a day to remember!
With out a doubt, I give Emily's Catering 5 out of 5 stars across the board. I am a CT native, but currently live out of state. Planning a wedding 1,000 miles away was not an easy task, but Emily's really made my wedding planning experience much easier. First of all, I showed up to my initial meeting with 7 people. Rick fed all 7 people a 3 course meal. He was so accommodating, and the food was so delicious we immediately booked him for our wedding. Rick also helped me create a fun menu that didn't consist of your typical wedding food. That was a major plus for us.
I spoke a lot with Cheryl and she was incredibly prompt with all of my questions. She was such a pleasure to work with!
The day of my wedding was sunny and beautiful. 20 minutes before our ceremony a thunderstorm rolled in. We had to scramble to move our outdoor ceremony inside. This also meant moving the bridal party to another building. Linda, from Emily's, was our go to person for the day and she quickly arranged her staff with a walkway of umbrellas for me so I wouldn't get wet. She also held up a sheet so my guests would see me prior to the ceremony. She walked me through our venue, holding the sheet up for me until I was able to reach an area where my guests couldn't see. That to me spoke volumes about Emily's staff. They truly went above and beyond for my wedding. Not to mention my guests are still raving about the food.
I would highly recommend Emily's Catering for any event. They helped to make my day special!
I cannot say enough about Emily's Catering. Truly, they were essential to making our wedding day magical. We have heard countless compliments, months later, on the quality of the food. Rick was willing to add personal touches to our menu & Cheryl was constantly responsive to endless questions. Their cocktail hour choices are UNBELIEVABLE and I'm sad that I didn't get to eat more (though waitstaff came to our wedding party plenty of times with food during pictures, I was dazed and missed too many options!) The catering is expensive, but when you're a detailed bride who's setting up her party and you see Emily's waitstaff come rolling in two hours before the wedding begins, you absolutely realize where all the money goes. I cannot brag enough about this caterer, their quality, and the party they'll put on for you. Worth every penny. Thank you Rick, Cheryl, and all the staff the day of!
