We were very happy with our experience with Castle Street Cafe for our wedding in the Berkshires. They have a great selection for your menu, and a lot of flexibility. I love Michael's emphasis on seasonal and local ingredients, and the carrot cake he created for us was one of the best I've ever had!

The tasting that is included in your package is wonderful - we were able to bring our parents and had so much fun trying different starters, entrees and dessert. Everyone at our wedding raved, especially about the beef tenderloin. We highly recommend working with Castle Street Cafe and Michael Ballon for your wedding.

Castle St Cafe catered my wedding at Seven Hills Inn and was amazing. First, Michael Ballon (the owner) was great to work with. He was prompt in replying to e-mails and very accommodating with our desire to have multiple tastings and with our various menu requests. The menu choices are extensive and his pricing is very fair and straightforward - the per person cost includes everything (even cake). Most importantly the food and service was great. Michael clearly loves his work and offered to tailor his standard menu options to what was local and fresh at the time. We offered a caprese salad with heirloom tomatoes and salmon with a corn flan - both were fantastic! We received so many compliments on our food and really enjoyed it ourselves. The servers were kind and professional and the timing of service was perfect. We had no worries, questions, or decisions to make the day of. We were debating about choosing cake or an alternative dessert such as cupcakes or tortes, but Michael encouraged us to try his cake before deciding. It was amazing! We ended up choosing carrot cake and it was the best I have had! I highly recommend Castle St Cafe!

Michael Ballon was a pleasure to work with as we planned for our rehearsal dinner and wedding reception with him. Given that my husband is German and his family was coming from Germany to attend the wedding, my husband suggested that we do a Thanksgiving-style rehearsal dinner so they could experience that for the first time. Everyone (including my family) loved it! The roast turkey was moist and carved by Michael himself, and all the other Thanksgiving fixings were there as well. For the wedding reception, we really liked the fact that we could have our guests choose from four entrees at the standard pricing. Michael was very open-minded in terms of what we were able to serve. For example, we were able to request an hors d'oeuvre that wasn't on his menu but that both of our cultures have in common. We received many compliments from our guests saying how delicious the food was, and we were pleased by the wait staff serving everyone promptly. Also, we were impressed by the enormous steak portions. Overall, we were very pleased with Michael and would highly recommend using Castle Street Cafe for your wedding.
