We used Amphora Catering for our wedding reception at Brookside Gardens. They were amazing in every way! The food was delicious and the service was great. Xochitl was our main contact from start to finish and she exceeded our expectations in all ways. She's so knowledgeable and experienced that she could anticipate any complications and knew exactly how to put the right touches on everything. We had planned to do an outdoor reception, but the weather didn't cooperate. She helped to make the indoor space beautiful and offered to set up a bonus cocktail area in the atrium that was a great addition and use of the space. She and her staff were also great when it came to set up and take down- they even helped us to unload our cars and packed up all of our leftovers for us. And the most important part- the food was delicious!! Couldn't have asked for a better experience :) Highly recommend Amphora- they take care of you from start to finish and they will make sure your event is a success!Sent on 06/03/2018

We worked with Amphora for our wedding on 25 August. Amphora had the best prices for food a bar package among the caterers we surveyed in the DC area. We were able to set up a tasting quickly due to the fast and detailed correspondence of the Amphora staff. The tasting room was our first clue that we had chosen the right caterer, with its beautiful decorations and displays of what Amphora was capable of. Throughout the planning of our wedding, Amphora staff went above and beyond to help us with our menu and were on site during our venue walk through at Oatlands - the two vendors have a great relationship with each other! During the wedding, Amphora staff made sure we were comfortable and even has staff dedicated to us to ensure we had time to eat during the busy day. Xochitl, our point of contact for the wedding day was so nice and accommodating and I heard from numerous family members that she made a point to ensure everything was going smoothly. Amphora behaved with such integrity and professionalism, not to mention the food was awesome, that I would recommend them to anyone looking for a caterer - no matter the event type.

We loved our experience with Amphora, and wholeheartedly recommend them as a wedding caterer. After researching over 30 caterers and reaching out to a handful of them, we knew Amphora was perfect. Our wonderful experience with them started when we met Xochitl for our tasting. After telling her our venue, she hand-drew from memory a possible layout of all the food, chairs, tables, and bars. Immediately we could tell the level of attention and detail she would put into making sure everything was exactly as we wanted for the wedding. She was always prompt, professional, accommodating, and extremely friendly. Working with her was always delightful and made planning much less stressful. She attended the entire reception and looked after everything herself, which was reassuring. The day of everything was perfect, and ran exactly how we expected and hoped for.
Now to the food – it was delicious. Over a dozen guests told us during the wedding and over the following days we had the best wedding food they’d ever eaten. Amphora’s tasting experience was great and sold us on choosing them. We tried a wide-range of the dishes and hors d'oeuvres we were considering. We chose the buffet option for dinner and couldn’t be more pleased with the quality and service. Everything was cooked to perfection. They accommodated our request to change the standard set of options, serving an additional main entrée of the butternut squash ravioli. Not only were we impressed with the tastiness of the hors d'oeuvres, but there were plenty served in constant circulation.
Xochitl and the rest of the Staff at Amphora, thank you. Our special day was perfect in large part their catering. You will be in great hands with Amphora.
Amphora Catering and Bakery exceeds expectations every single time!! Well Done!!
We have worked with Amphora Catering a number of times and we highly recommend them for any wedding or event!
