We used Eat & Smile Catering for our wedding this past June and absolutely loved it. The food was by far better than any catering I’ve had before. When reviewing caterers, E&S stood out because the food was local, fresh, flavorful and fun! E&S worked with us to keep our catering budget centered, while allowing us creative license with menu options. We were happy to support a small business in DC, but even happier with the service and products!

These people ROCK!!! We requested an out-of-the ordinary menu- 4 passed appetizers and 4 small plates that went with an ampersand theme- mac & cheese, shrimp & grits, spaghetti & meatballs...etc etc. Our guest RAVED about the yummy comfort food! Katie was exceptionally easy to work with-replied to emails within minutes many times. All aspects of the process were EASY and the results were beyond our wildest dreams! Our venue was overjoyed with the condition our venue was left in-they said it was exceptional! Really cannot recommend Eat & Smile highly enough. Delicious food and great quality & value. Five stars all the way!!!
