We are beyond ecstatic that Eat & Smile were with us for our celebration. The food was phenomenal! Some of my favorites were the ceviche, red snapper, and the beef & potatoes. Everything was delicious though. Even when things went off schedule on our part all of the team adapted quickly and smoothly. They really went the extra mile to accommodate some last minute changes we made.
Also, they paid great attention to me (the bride) and my mother by delivering beverages to us personally in moments when we weren't in the reception area.
As D.C. residents, we were proud to have Eat & Smile who source from local vendors and farms for their ingredients, food and beverage items.
We feel very loved and fulfilled, and are grateful we could share this weekend with such wonderful people.
I don't know how to thank them enough for answering all of our questions, and keeping us on track! We couldn't have done this without them. If we ever have a big event again, we will definitely come to E&S.
Thank you so so much again!

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.Sent on 10/12/2018

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.Sent on 10/15/2018
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!
