You will have an event to remember if you use Best Impressions Catering and The Terrace at Cedar Hill!
The Terrace at Cedar Hill was a spectacular venue, and the food and service provided by Best Impressions Catering was outstanding! Crystal Harrell and her team took the time to understand our vision for the wedding reception and executed it with perfection. They asked all the right questions, made valuable suggestions based on their many years of experience and were flexible throughout the process to meet our unique needs. They also made some great suggestions with regard to vendors they recommended for flowers, wedding planners, etc. All of our guests continue to rave over the wonderful experience they had at my daughter’s reception. I would highly recommend them and with two daughters to go, I’m sure I’ll be back!Sent on 04/29/2019

Deja vu! Accolades for Best Impression!
We had such seamless and enjoyable experience working with Best Impressions caterers and Crystal Harrell. Our daughter’s wedding reception was held at Byron’s South End in late November. What a fabulous venue! From the moment we met Crystal she was so accommodating, responsive to our questions, and extremely helpful. Our out of town guests were so impressed by the venue décor and loved the location.Sent on 01/18/2020
It was actually our second time working with Best Impressions Caterers (our son’s rehearsal dinner was the prior year at the Terrace at Cedar Hill) and again they did a fabulous job. The food was delicious (we had a plated meal for just over 200 guests) and they were willing to modify the menu to our requests and dietary needs.
I would not hesitate to hire Best Impressions for future needs. They were very professional, delivered what they promised, and made the entire process enjoyable. And, if you have the opportunity to work with Crystal, you’ll be very fortunate!

Best Catering in the City
We had the best food thanks to best impressions. Nikki was so helpful and pulled everything together beautifully. Our wedding day was perfect and I cannot recommend Beat Impressions enough for catering, rentals and any of your wedding needs!Sent on 11/25/2019
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!
