    Great customization for your menu

    We used Crave for our wedding catering and could not be happier! They customize your menu to what you want and any restrictions (we needed dairy-free), great communication, and great service. Our guests raved about the food to us, which is what we wanted. They were a tad more expensive than a few others we were looking at but that was worth the experience, service, and product. They were one of the best things from our wedding.

    Amazing food, service... All with short notice!

    We had originally hired another caterer that was a preferred vendor with our venue. Sadly, they went out of business a few months before our wedding. They very kindly introduced us to Crave, and helped transition our menu over.

    Leslie at Crave is nothing short of a rock star! She is an absolute pro, and helped us execute our same vision that we had with our previous caterer. Crave was so flexible, accommodating, and had a total can-do attitude. The service was seamless, and the food delicious.

    My husband and I are very much into food. It was such a major decision for us, the one we took the longest to decide upon while wedding planning. Crave absolutely delivered, and we had so many compliments from guests as well.

    Crave Catering's reply:

    Rachael....thank you so much for your lovely words.:.we know you went through a transition and we are so happy it ended being a.positive experience. Cheers to a beautiful new life together. Thank you fir having Crave be a part of your celebration!!!

    Amazing Food, Professionalism, and Service

    Meredith and the whole team at Crave was wonderful to work with. We received so many compliments from our guests on the deliciousness of the food, the professionalism of the servers, and in particular the astute way they handled our guest's food allergies.

    Meredith, Leslie, and the whole team helped create a perfect custom menu for our day. They were incredibly professional, quick to respond, and treated us so well. During the very stressful time of planning, postponing, and replanning a wedding during the pandemic, Crave was always there to help and support us. Absolutely would recommend them to everyone!
