    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.

    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!
