If the quality of your food is important to you, hire Eat & Smile.
Making sure we had good food was one of our most important priorities for the wedding. Our guests certainly had lofty expectations of the food we would be serving! Oliver and the Eat & Smile team helped us meet expectations - and exceed them! A lot of other caterers in town will have you pick items you want to try or serve off a set menu, but Oliver tailored the menu based on what we like and what's important to us. It is also worth noting that Oliver was, by far, the most honest caterer we spoke to - he knew our venue extremely well and set realistic expectations with us about the kind of service that worked best with our guest count. Plenty of other caterers would have happily done a sit-down dinner at rounds of 10 for our guests, but only Oliver said that we should try it another way. We ended up with a menu that was extremely personal to us and our story, fantastic service, and things that were really delicious. Thank you! P.S. Everyone keeps asking us for the five-spice oatmeal cookie recipe; can you share?Sent on 10/28/2019

We loved E&S!!!!!
Eat & Smile catered our 10/26/19 wedding at the Josephine Butler Parks Center. We booked Eat & Smile because of their commitment to local, seasonal food. Eat & Smile’s food totally delivered what we were looking for – we felt that Eat & Smile really “got” what we were looking for in terms of a menu after the questionnaire and initial menu consultation; Eat & Smile was also easy to work with in tinkering the menu.Sent on 12/21/2019
Eat & Smile did a fantastic job on the day of the wedding. We opted for family style food, and dinner service went off without a hitch. Most importantly, the food was incredibly delicious – it was seriously above and beyond what we thought wedding food could be.
Along the wedding planning way, Oliver also had a ton of advice and helpful tidbits to make the day go smoothly. As someone else wrote in a review, Oliver was very honest with us along the way about what he thought would work or wouldn’t work in our space and with our timeline. We really appreciated Oliver’s honesty and expertise in the leadup to the wedding.

Delicious food, friendly people, amazing service!
I can't recommend Oliver and Eat & Smile enough! He worked with me and my now husband endlessly and was always patient and understanding. He worked with us directly to curate our perfect reception--from organizing our rentals, to determining the serving style, to the bar setup, to the exquisite food and beautiful presentation. Oliver and his team of servers and bartenders were cordial, friendly, and attentive. And then, there was the food itself! The food was superb and gorgeous and did I mention delicious? And all the food is locally and sustainably sourced and you can taste the difference! Bottom line, great food, great people, great investment, we definitely recommend Eat & Smile!Sent on 12/03/2019
