    Best wedding food I've ever had!!!

    Our wedding venue works exclusively with Emily's and we couldn't feel more lucky about that!! Working with Beth was so wonderful - she was communicative and creative when helping us think through our event and how can could accommodate an array of dietary restrictions and save a bit of money along the way. And the food was absolutely amazing!!! We got married 2 months ago now, and STILL have people asking us who our caterer was -- our entrees were short ribs, sea bass in beurre blanc, and an eggplant neapolitan, plus a wide assortment of hor dourves and desserts. The flexibility we had when building our menu allowed us to stay on budget and create an event that was true to us! Highly, highly recommend for any event!!

    Amazing Communication and Delicious Food!

    We hired Emily and her team for our wedding at Crossing Vineyards. Emily was so receptive to discussing every detail of the wedding menu and day. She was incredibly responsive by email and phone when needed. The appetizers were DELICIOUS! My guests were raving. There was plenty of food. Our lead on the day of our wedding was Jennifer - she was wonderful! She made sure everything ran smoothly. I cannot take their team enough!

    Incredible Wedding Catering Experience!

    Booking our wedding with Emily's at Mountain Lakes House was the first and best decision I made when planning our wedding. The unpredictable nature of COVID made wedding planning so daunting, but Emily was there to help answer questions and design the perfect intimate wedding every step of the way. Emily and her team handled everything from our welcome table, to alcohol and rentals, food, ceremony set-up...you name it, they had it covered. The grounds at the Mountain Lake House are stunning and the staff made sure the whole day went smoothly. I really can't thank Emily enough for helping to make our day so special, and we cannot wait to go to her cafe on our anniversary to have a little taste of our wedding once again.

We got the chance to work with Emily and company at wedding at the Prallsville Mill in Stockton last year and they were amazing to work with. Dinner was spectacularly timed and was excellent. As a DJ I get to sample food from a lot of different caterers and the Chilean Sea Bass was out of this world! Emily was always very friendly and courteous and everything went amazingly well. Highly recommend.
