    The Ultimate Catering Services

    We hired Catered by Design for our wedding reception at the Grove Redfield Estate, and it was one of the best decisions we made in the planning process. Matt and his team are incredible. Matt helped us build a menu tailored to our tastes and atmosphere. His experience was invaluable, as he made key suggestions related to place settings, linens, bar orders, etc. He made sure that our extra furniture rentals fit within our budget, even if it meant Catered by Design had to store the chairs for a few extra days. Matt was highly responsive to all our emails and phone calls, right down to the simplest questions. We left the tasting with full confidence that the food would be delicious and that Matt would ensure that the event ran smoothly.

    On the day of the wedding, the reception team was led by Laura, who was amazing. Her team was prompt, efficient, and polite. They set up our reception space exactly as we had described, and made last-minute adjustments that didn't detract from our vibe. Laura herself served us at our sweetheart table, and she was perceptive enough to pack our meals for us when she saw that we wouldn't have time to finish our food at the table. All of our guests raved about the food, saying they were happy it wasn't "just a typical wedding meal." From the service to the setup to the food itself, Catered by Design is a team of ultimate professionals. You won't go wrong in choosing them for your event.

    A must have!

    We used Catered by Design for our 6/19/21 backyard wedding and worked with Matt during the planning process. Matt was so helpful and even came to the ‘venue’ (my in-law’s home) for a walk through so we could all properly prepare. Very responsive over email.
    The day of staff were brilliant! They provided so many extra touches that blew our guests away. The presentation of passed appetizers was flawless. They made a beautiful meat and cheese display in the kitchen island. They even set up a cake cutting table, totally not planned, or expected. We also heard many positives about the bartender!
    Most importantly, the food was delicious!! Catered by Design is a must have!
