The Absolute BEST!
Hands down the best food ever!! Throughout the wedding planning process, everyone told me that Best Impressions was the best caterer in town - and they were right!! I am a foodie, so the food that was served was very important to me. We had so much fun working with Donald to pick out/taste the food for our reception. Our guests are still talking about how awesome the shrimp and grits and butternut squash ravioli were. My only wish is that I’d gotten to eat more of it!Sent on 04/09/2019

My wife and I hosted a rehearsal dinner for 80 at Terrace at Cedar Hill Friday March 22, 2019. With more than half the guests from the north we had Best Impression Caterers provide a “Southern Style” menu. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed and raved about the taste and food quality. Many compliments also about the venue. Gorgeous view of the uptown skyline and Bank of America stadium.Sent on 03/27/2019
We could not be happier with the staff from the time of our initial contact to the conclusion of our event. They are courteous, polite, and responsive which made organizing our event stress free.
I promise you won’t be disappointed.

As far as catering goes, all of my guests keep talking about how delicious the food was! I highly recommend!
I believe we work with Best Impressions, it seems, every week, probably 3 to 4 events every weekend. It's awesome. The chemistry between their staff is so smooth, the service, the display of the food, all of it is always on point. It is a pleasure to work with a company that allows other vendors involved to work so easily with them to make a perfect event. As a vendor, we really enjoy when we have permission to eat at their events as the food is always great. They strive for perfection and I truly believe they hit it every time. We highly recommend them!
Best Impressions stands out above other caterers! They are reliable, professional, creative in their presentation - and the food is delicious. I know when I am working with Best Impressions that I never have to worry about problems with the caterer. Their staff - from the first person you meet in the office to the servers at the event are an absolute joy to work with! You can't go wrong with Best Impressions!
Heidi, Ashley, Justin, Adam & everyone at Best Impressions always goes above and beyond for each and every client. We're always proud to work along side them and know the guests are going to be raving about the food and the photo booth!
