Overall, we had a very positive experience working with Blue Water Kitchen! We went through a number of tastings before booking with BWK and once we had our tasting with them, there was no going back. They hosted a private tasting for us on their property, giving us a very exclusive feeling experience, and we even sat with the head chef, Michael and talked through what we loved and didn't love. The customized our menu to fit our personalities, while keeping true to their "farm to table" brand. Christina has a unique eye for design and was tremendous when it came time to pick out our table settings. She was extremely communicative leading up to the wedding and very flexible when we ended up with 50 fewer guests than expected. Our guests said that our food was the best they had EVER had at a wedding - and we agree! We especially loved the crab cakes, unique signature cocktails, short ribs, and fun appetizers. We would recommend Blue Water to anyone we meet - they are a wonderful team!

BWK is squarely a notch above any other caterer we tasted when planning our wedding. Christina and Michael really deserve a 6th star here.

Michael's passion comes through in the inventiveness of the menu, commitment to sustainability and local sources, and dish execution at scale. It felt like going to a small farm to table restaurant. My wife and I laugh that no one was on the dance floor for the first few songs after our first dance because half of our guests were huddled around the dessert bar.

Christina brought everything together -- she is so low stress, patient, and we didn't have to worry about one thing the entire day (my wife looks for things to worry about). Even as the harshest critics of our own event, we couldn't think of one thing we didn't like or one thing we had to stress about. It all just happened, perfectly.

Everything else was great -- staff was professional and friendly, rentals were easy, and communication was thorough.

Can't recommend BWK enough, if nothing else than their unbelievable fried risotto ball appetizers. Please send us the recipe, Michael! :)

Bluewater Kitchen is second to none when it comes to catering. Although they are priced at the higher end of the scale, they are worth every penny. We hired Bluewater for both our rehearsal dinner and reception. We could not be more pleased with the fare that Michael and his team cooked up and delivered. Everything was of the highest quality, from the delectable hors de oeuvre for our cocktail hour, to the perfect reception dinner, to our own crafted “signature” cocktail. They even set up an afterhours “mac and cheese” bar for guests toward the end of the reception. Bluewater’s delicious menu left all our guests satisfied while still wanting more!

We also used Bluewater’s coordination services for the day and Christina was an absolute pleasure to work with. She ensured everything (and everyone) was kept on time in a smooth manner so we did not have to worry about anything except getting married and having fun. Her team’s setup of the reception hall was breathtakingly beautiful.

Bluewater Kitchen’s approach to catering was exactly what we wanted for our wedding and Michael and Christina delivered to us an evening we won’t soon forget. We cannot recommend their services enough.
