The minute I met Annette I knew she was the person I wanted involved in my 30th birthday. Annette is bursting with energy from the time we planned to the end of the party. My biggest fear was running out of food and that was never a concern for Distinctive Catering. The food was amazing and the staff was attentive to ever guest as if they were family. I cant wait to call Distinctive Catering for my next event.Sent on 08/26/2019

Daughter’s Graduation Party 7/15/2018

Distinctive Catering was an A+
Choice for handling of my daughter’s High school graduation party needs. From the beginning stages of booking the catering services to seeing our last guest leave the party, Annette and her catering team made every effort to be sure our needs and accommodations were fully satisfied. The ease of booking and the ability to select foods that were not only appealing to the young adults but remained upscale for my adult guests took away the stress that normally comes along with hosting a party event. The quantity and quality of food, desserts and beverages was something my guests raved about long after the event was over. Distinctive Catering staff were very friendly, organized and accommodating. Food was served during the scheduled time and prepared as requested. Staff was professional and friendly. Tables were cleared as guests finished their meals leaving me with the ability to not only soak in this memorable milestone event for my daughter, but allowed me the time to visit with each of my guests. Distinctive Catering is very professional, dependable and efficient. I highly recommend Distinctive Catering for your next party event. No matter how big or small your event may be, Annette and her team will leave you fully satisfied.

Distinctive Catering... BEST wedding caterer ever! No words can describe our gratitude for the PERFECT job they did for my daughters wedding at the Canfield Casino in Saratoga Springs.Sent on 08/11/2018
~Annette Osher is the owner of Distinctive Catering. When I first met Annette, I quickly realized that using her was going to be the best decision made for my daughters wedding. From our first meeting to the very end of the wedding, every detail was cared for well beyond our expectations. Her whole focus is to make the dream of having a fairytale wedding become a reality. It was nothing short of that. She will always hold a very special place in our hearts.
~Her Staff. I have been to many many weddings. I have never seen staff work so hard, and always with a smile the way this staff did. I was not the only one who noticed this, as so many of the guests commented about them as well. They are all professionals and easily cared for the 220 guests. They are truly the dream team.
~The Food... nothing less than 100% PERFECTION. There are no words to describe just how amazing all the food was. Not only did we hear this from just about every guest, but many who were not at the wedding said that they heard the food was unbelievable as well. We chose buffet style, so that our guests could enjoy a variety of food. From the hors d’oeuvres at cocktail hour, every dish on the buffet line, to the ice cream sundae bar, and 3 different flavors of wedding cake, the compliments continue to be said. I am confident that any food critic would give their highest rating.
My daughter and son in law said they felt they had the most perfect wedding day. I will always attribute this to Annette, her staff and the food. So, if you are planning a wedding, you have many choices to choose from. If you want the perfect wedding, then I cant recommend enough for you to use Distinctive Catering.
