We would highly recommend Nick and his team. From start to finish he was professional, helpful, and the food was amazing for our wedding at Lighthouse Point Park! We reached out to him because we knew he catered there often, and it was important to us to find someone who knew the space well.Sent on 08/10/2017
Nick scheduled us for a tasting right away, and worked with us to create a custom menu to fit our budget. He even added mini grilled cheese sandwiches to our appetizers.
The week of the wedding, Nick allowed us to drop off all of our alcohol and chargers to his business (we purchased our own alcohol, he provided the bartenders free though!) so we wouldn't have to lug everything to the venue the day of. He was so accommodating and helpful. He also worked with us on last minute guest changes and even refunded us for a few guests who were unable to attend a few days before the wedding.
The day of the wedding everyone was raving about the food. The whole night went smoothly and the food was ready to go and hot. We also had a late night snack, which was also ready right on time and was a great ending to the night.
We are so glad we hired Nick and his team!

One of the most important parts of a wedding is the food and if you’re searching for a delicious option while getting more bang for your buck ..look no further! We cannot thank Nick and his staff enough for their hard work and amazing food at our wedding. Guests keep telling us how much they loved the food. From the start Nick was responsive and answered every question. Nick was easy to work with and very reasonable in price. We wanted to do something outside of the normal sit down meat/fish/veggie option. He was able to provide a lot of options and customize our menu to fit our theme. Every staff member I interacted with was kind and accommodating throughout the event. We are forever grateful! Nick and his staff truly helped make our event memorable!Sent on 10/10/2018

We used Fitzgerald's Fine Catering for our wedding on 9/22/18 at Lighthouse Point Park in New Haven, CT and were thrilled with the experience. Throughout the lead up process to the wedding Nick was accessible and incredibly flexible with what we were able to do. It was difficult to narrow down a menu because he will truly do whatever you want, which is a great problem to have. When we were struggling to finalize our choices, we had no problem setting up a call with him and walking through our thoughts which helped us clarify things and come up with a selection we were super excited about. It's one thing to see a nice looking menu on paper, but to see the perfect execution of it was a joy. Many guests commented on how excellent the food preparation was and we both can attest that it was a delicious meal. The lobster in particular was cooked perfectly, and the chicken and steak dishes were both properly prepared and super tasty, which sometimes is a struggle for mass produced food. In addition to the great meal, the staff and services provided by Fitzgerald's on the day of the event were extraordinary and alleviated so much stress for us. We were concerned not having a wedding planner or day of coordinator, but the staff took our decorations the week of the event and set everything up beautifully. Sue in particular was amazing. She slightly tweaked our welcome table design in a way that made it even more visually appealing and was sure that we were taken care of all night, whether it was getting us drinks or making us plates of food. The bride and groom came first and we were treated like royalty by the whole staff. Fitzgerald's also offers the best value you can find for an open bar at $15pp, which is absurd. They even served cases of craft beer and additional liquor we brought. Overall, from the venue set up, food preparation, and incredible staff, Fitzgerald's was a home run and I couldn't recommend them enough. 5 stars all the way.Sent on 09/25/2018
