Caterer Extraordinaire

We wanted our guests to have the best food and enough of it, which is exactly what we got. The pasta bar was hot and fresh. The Beef Tenderloin and Glazed Ham stations were yummy and plentiful. The baked potato bar was excellent. The food and service was 10/10.

Great catering service!

The food was just so delicious, when we did our tasting for our wedding, it was hard for us to decide! We had plated service for our wedding, and everyone said the food was great. There was just one table that got forgotten about, but it got figured out. Also wish that the cake had been served to each table, but it was an oversight we forgot about. Would definitely recommend them to friends!

Incredible!

My husband has celiac disease which makes eating safely a challenge-- the folks at first we eat were INCREDIBLE about showing us our options and making sure everything was safe for my husband to eat. Even with our gluten free restriction, we had a ton of options. We decided to make everything gluten free and all the food was spectacular. They also made specific meals for our vegan/lactose free family (not an easy combo to manage on top of being gluten free!) and they took care of everyone beautifully. We asked for one of the dishes to have the pork substituted with chicken and they did it no problem, and it was spectacular! One of the servers also was so kind as to bring out some of the hors d'oeuvres to us while we were taking photos so that we didn't go hungry and got to try their spectacular stuffed mushrooms. We also got a gluten free sheet cake from them which was delicious!

At every step from tasting to the day of, they were responsive, thoughtful, and had the highest quality most delicious food and wonderful staff. We could not possibly be more thrilled with them. Additionally, they were very affordable and actually well under our food budget. We could not recommend them more!

P.S. The vegetable lasagna is mind-blowing
