We worked with Yulia, who is the most prepared, professional, and reliable event coordinator I have ever met. We didn't have a wedding planner, so she went the extra mile and made sure that our plan was thorough and that we didn't miss any detail. She was always responsive to even the smallest request for information or assistance.
Every detail of Well Dunn's preparation and execution the day of the wedding was perfect. Not just good or great... perfect. I had to step back a few times and just take it all in. The entire staff made sure the venue was prepared well ahead of time, and they did a fantastic job. Many details we didn't even notice until looking at pictures in the days after the wedding.
The waitstaff was extremely attentive and courteous to everyone. We had a server, Sonya, assigned specifically to us. When I couldn't find anyone else in the wedding party after the post-ceremony photos, Sonya helped me out, all the time offering me drinks and hors d'vores.
Many people told us stories of the bride and groom not getting a chance to enjoy their meal at their wedding. Well dunn made sure that didn't happen to us. We were at a sweetheart table, and they served us first. They even brought out our entrees well in advance of the other tables. They made that suggestion so that we could socialize at the guests' tables while they were still eating and we were finished. It was a great idea. One of many suggestions by their staff that evening that were extremely helpful in making the event so enjoyable for all.
Speaking of the food... it was phenomenal. Sometimes you'll hear meals at weddings referred to as "wedding food." It's not a compliment. Usually that means dry, overcooked meat and fish. Several guests complimented us on the meal saying, "that was NOT wedding food!"
Well Dunn deserves the absolute highest praise. My only regret in leaving this review is that I've run out of space, and there are not enough stars in the ranking system.
Well Dunn was our caterer for our wedding and they absolutely blew my mind. I cannot even put to words how great they were to work with throughout the whole wedding planning process. We personally worked with Yulia, and she is as top-notch as it gets. I honestly do not know how I could've gone through the planning process without her. Yulia was so incredibly patient and always willing to help. She was so incredibly responsive as well. I have to admit, I was probably a total nightmare to work with because I could not make up my mind about anything and I was literally making decisions two days before the wedding--but you know what? Yulia followed through, she executed a flawless wedding. She absolutely KILLED it. I wouldn't be surprised if she's eventually going to be running the place.
The wedding day, Yulia was so bright and lively. The staff, were impeccable and their service was unmatched. The staff were so professional, friendly, and seemed so happy to be there!
The food. I can't stop talking about the food. I honestly think Steve Dunn needs to come out with a cookbook or restaurant because the food was amazing. I kid you not, at least 30 people came up to me and told me that the food was the best wedding food they had ever had. And, most of my friends have been to at least 20+ in the past 3 years.
You cannot go wrong with Well Dunn. They are THE best in town. I can't wait to work with them again!
We love Yulia at Well Dunn!!!! She is just the best. Amazing all the things she can juggle! We didn't have a coordinator, so she was a huge help. I didn't worry about a thing the day of the wedding; Yulia and her staff were always there to get me to where I was supposed to be and keep me hydrated and fed (important!). I give her all the credit for it going smoothly. Of course the food was delicious too! Thank you times a thousand!!! xoxo
Well Dunn catered our wedding and they were fantastic. Natalie was our rep and she was so easy to work with and so very accommodating. The food was absolutely fantastic. Not much else to say-they were perfect and the guests are still raving about the food. Such a great choice of caterers for our event. I've been to hundreds of catered events and the food is rarely anywhere near as good as it was at our wedding. The milkshakes were a nice touch!
Well Dunn is the best! They provided delicious food, excellent service, and were very responsive to all our needs and requests. Madeline was our sales representative. She was a delight to work with. She set up an hors d'oeuvres tasting when we were still considering our catering options. The food was so delicious and Madeline was such a great representative that we decided to go with the company. Madeline then set up an awesome full menu tasting a few months before the wedding. She was very flexible in helping us craft our menu. We learned right before our wedding that Madeline was sadly leaving the company, but she did a great job transitioning us to Rhiannon, who managed our wedding and did a wonderful job. The food at the wedding was delicious and the wait staff did a wonderful job of serving everything in a very efficient/timely manner. We also loved that this catering company gave us a private butler to follow us around and make sure our food/drink needs were met all night long. Definitely consider them for your wedding or event!
The food was awesome! Everyone commented on how great it was. Rhiannon worked with us along the way to make sure the menu and atmosphere was everything we wanted
Natalie Walker of Well Dunn was absolutely fabulous to work with from the start. She was attentive to detail, flexible, and responsive. Well Dunn outdid themselves. All our guests were extremely pleased with the quality of the food, and the professionalism of the staff. Each of them was made to feel important and respected. The evening went forward without a hitch, thanks in great measure to the exceptional service and value provided by Well Dunn
We were so pleased with the Well Dunn experience. Event Coordinator Madeline Zavesky ensured that I was her only client that weekend. She was very responsive initially when we were “shopping around” for caterers. Once everything was confirmed, Madeline was on hand to provide general guidance and field frantic questions and requests. I didn’t hire a wedding planner and I didn’t need one. Madeline made it easy, fun, and low-stress. All our needs were met and I would recommend Well Dunn to anyone without hesitation.
Madeline and the team at Well Dunn are amazing. From menu planning, to giving ideas about where to put tables, everything was a breeze. I cannot speak more highly about the entire team from beginning to end. The night went off without a hitch, food was delicious, the staff attentive and kind, and all my guests complimentary.
Yulia at Well Dunn is epic. She was helpful, responsive, and flexible. She knew the venue (the Anderson House) very well and set up the flow of the wedding perfectly. I did not have a wedding planner, so she took the initiative to ask for contact info for all of my vendors to help coordinate the day of. The staff on the day of the event was also amazing - they made sure that my husband and I ate, had enough water, and (of course) never had an empty drink!
We LOVED the food, and our guests were raving about it as well. We feel lucky to have found Well Dunn - the whole reception went very smoothly, we didn't have to worry about a thing. Thank you Yulia and Well Dunn!
My husband and I recently got married at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. It was an absolute dream. Well Dunn catered our wedding and we couldn't have been happier. The food was amazing (all the guests raved about it). The servers were professional and the bride and groom were taken care of the entire night. The space was beautifully set up. We can't speak highly enough about Well Dunn, especially Yulia. She's extremely responsive throughout the entire planning process (not just toward the end) and really gets to know her clients and their preferences. I had 100% confidence in Well Dunn going into the wedding and every bride wants that! Trust me when I say you would not regret going with Well Dunn for your wedding--they are the best.
From start to finish, our experience with Well Dunn was everything we could have asked for and more. Working with Madeline was such a pleasure -she was super responsive, always willing to go the extra mile for us, and knew the ins and outs of our venue in such a way that we always felt like we were in trusted hands. My husband and I chose to use Well Dunn as our caterer, not just because of how yummy the food was, but because we felt so good about our initial meeting with Madeline. On the day of the event, everything went incredibly smoothly. The food was cooked to perfection and we received so many raves about the filet mignon from our guests. How often do people walk away from a wedding remembering the food? Well, with Well Dunn, everyone absolutely did. At the end of the night, we were sent off with a basket full of leftover treats which we happily enjoyed as we relived the best night of our lives.
Well Dunn was absolutely INCREDIBLE to work with!!! We had so many compliments on the quality of the food and the professionalism of the service from our reception. Yulia is SO wonderful and will anticipate anything that may pop up during the planning process. She was incredibly flexible with some of the last minute changes we had to make the week of the wedding. We put together our own flower arrangements, about 20-25 in total, and weren't sure how we'd be able to deliver them to our venue, as our venue couldn't accept deliveries prior to the day of the event. Yulia arranged for Well Dunn to store them for a day and take them to the venue in their refrigerated truck! We also had a waiter who worked with us during the reception and made sure we had all the food/drink we needed. My champagne glass was never empty :) Well Dunn couldn't have been better. Their services are literally worth EVERY penny. Choose them!!
We used Well Dunn Catering for a seated dinner for 60 people and the food was delicious. They would serve one table at a time and have 3 or 4 waiters come to the table all at the same time so everyone could eat together. The staff we cheerful and professional and the Sea Bass and Chicken dishes were EXCELLENT. All my guests were raving about how good the food tasted.
Prior to the dinner, the planning was professional and helpful keeping stress to a minimum. We worked with Madeline Z and she was a delight; helpful, flexible and knowledgeable. She made us feel at ease and that we could craft the kind of special event we wanted.
It all went off without a hitch and we all had a great time. I was so impressed, would definitely recommend Well Dunn Catering for your DC wedding.
I highly highly recommend Well Dunn for event catering! First and foremost, the food was delicious and I happened to notice that all of our wedding guests literally cleaned their plates. Secondly, I had such a positive experience working with Natalie. She really knew what she was doing and I trusted her every step of the way. She was very professional and always responsive to my questions. She provided great guidance along the way. In fact, I trusted Well Dunn so much, that I decided to ask them to take care of anything and everything else they could provide (such as the dancefloor, etc). Lastly, the night just flowed so smoothly due to Well Dunn's organization, experience, and great staff. We received many compliments on the service throughout the evening. Well Dunn really went above and beyond our expectations for our wedding day. My new husband and I are still talking about how happy we are that we chose Well Dunn to cater our wedding.
Well Dunn was amazing to work with for our wedding reception! Natalie was a pleasure to work with and was on top of every detail. She was incredibly thorough and communicated with us during every step of the planning process. Antonio was the lead at the reception and he did a great job of ensuring that everything went smoothly and keeping us in the loop. We didn't do a tasting pre-event since we didn't meet the threshold, but several guests commented that this was the best wedding food they'd had. Our only regret is that we didn't eat more of it ourselves!
We highly recommend Well Dunn for a professional, local, and delicious catering company!
