    We could not be happier with how Eilish and her team helped our dream wedding come true. Eilish was incredibly responsive to our requests, and helped us plan out details that we hadn't even thought of. The quality of food and presentation was incredible. Our guests were wowed with their meals and the service. They were also considerate and creative with dietary requests. Most importantly, they work with local farmers and vendors! We highly recommend them for your event catering needs.

    We loved E+S! We loved their philosophy about using locally sourced food and we got the vibes that they treat their staff really well. We worked with Katie and Chef Oliver to weave together a menu that was inclusive of both of our heritages - Italian and Latina. We also had a number of guests with food allergies, and E+S did an amazing job of helping us find the right options to make everyone happy - and still celebrate the melding of our two cultures.

    The food was delicious, and the catering team did an amazing job taking care of all of our guests. We wanted to give a special shoutout to Danny, who was so polite, pleasant, and thoughtful. Things got so hectic for me and my hubby, as we were trying to say hello to everyone, and Danny went out of his way to check in on us several times. He even hooked us up with a special plate of our apps - and even just his calm demeanor put us at ease. I wish I caught everyone's name, because there was also another gentleman and another young woman who made sure I stayed hydrated before the ceremony (it was such a hot day!) and they brought the whole bridal party water and champagne, which was so sweet!

    It seemed like no task was too small or trivial. They took such great care of us on site, and all with smiles on their faces. As I told Danny and Katie, Eat and Smile was our favorite vendor! They were so easy to work with, and we worried about so many things on our wedding day, and our catering was not one of them. Everything from setting the menu to flipping the rooms was taken care of so seamlessly.

    Thank you to Katie, Oliver, Danny, and the whole team, for taking care of us, and carrying out our vision on our wedding day. Our food was definitely one of our wedding highlights!
