Excellent menu, excellent service!
We connected with Design Cuisine almost 1 month before our wedding due to last minute COVID changes causing us to change venues. It was a very pleasant transition! The team was responsive, flexible, accommodating, professional. The night of the event they gave amazing service and the food was excellent! I was worried about "off site kitchen" leading to food being less than hot, however this was not the case. Everything was perfect!Sent on 10/10/2020

INCREDIBLE food and service!
Design Cuisine is the exclusive caterer to our venue, Woodlawn. Usually this is sort of terrifying because you feel “stuck” with a caterer you didn’t choose. If Woodlawn’s gorgeous venue didn’t sell you yet, LET DESIGN CUISINE DO IT WITH EASE. They are true professionals and their service is some of the BEST I’ve ever seen. We worked with Claire, who was helpful, understanding, and extremely responsive – even on the morning of my wedding. The Design Cuisine showroom in Shirlington is massive – so many choices for every type of wedding/style you can imagine. Claire helped us narrow down the look we were going for and helped us create a vision for our entire reception. The tasting had our jaws dropped the entire time. They had our exact linens, chairs, silverware etc. so you could get a good idea of how the reception would feel. For our tasting, they had cooked our ENTIRE wedding menu and even had folks dressed in tuxes serving us in the tasting room. Fast-forward to the day of, I couldn’t stop eating. Usually you find brides don’t have time or their nerves were too high. Nuh-uh – not with Design Cuisine’s food. Everything from the pear salad to the short rib was flawless and tasted exactly like it had (if not better!) than our tasting. We still have guests (over a month later) raving about our food.Sent on 12/22/2019

Great customer service!
After a quick change of the catering company at our venue, we were introduced to Design Cuisine. I had been extremely stressed about the catering for our wedding (who wouldn't be?) and was so relieved when I was introduced to Claire. She eased my worries right away and worked with me and my husband's schedule to get us in for a tasting as soon as possible. She is extremely friendly and approachable and eager to help you have the day of your dreams. Design Cuisine made a point to honor our pricing from the previous caterer (which was a nice gesture) but they went above and beyond in customer service. Claire always answered every question promptly (even when they appeared in multiple e-mails!) and provided lots of options that could work. Claire and her team were very flexible in setting up different options for guests so that everyone could enjoy the evening. Everyone at our wedding raved about the food and service from the Design staff members! We are so glad that we had the chance to work with them!Sent on 07/22/2019
