Amazing!!!

Our entire experience with Catering by Dale, from start to finish, was personal, professional and wonderful. They are a team of experienced wedding professionals who go above and beyond just a food and beverage service. In addition to their delicious food and seamless service, Susan also provided wedding coordination services for us leading up to and day-of our wedding. I was so confident with everything that they had planned that I was actually able to show up and enjoy the party as a guest and not be worried about the details. Not only is the team organized and professional but the food is incredible and beautifully plated, matching the quality of a five-star restaurant experience. We had so many of our guests comment on how amazing the food was, as well as the cocktails. I would absolutely recommend Catering by Dale for their great value, professional service and delicious food.

We recently worked with Catering by Dale for our June 3 wedding. We had an incredible experience with them - working both with Dale developing the menu and Mary, the event coordinator. We were in communication with them throughout the year in the planning process, and both were respectful and prompt. The food was delicious & reflected our vision exactly. Mary did an amazing job making the day feel like a breeze - our wedding was all that we dreamt of and that day there was not an ounce of stress or uncertainty about what might happen, she took care of it all!

My daughter had a destination autumn wedding in Vt.
Dale was great to work with. Most of our correspondences were through email and she was very prompt answering any questions/concerns we had.
The food was amazing! Many compliments from our guests.
The staff was professional and efficient during the reception.
Can't say enough about Wendy, the wedding
co-ordinator , she was most helpful, kind and sweet!
A great experience working with CBD - making the day that much more special!
