five stars for Five Star
We had the pleasure of having five star catering be our caterers for our wedding this past June. It has been a wonderful experience working with them. From the start everything was organized so well, Laura and her team were very accommodating to our needs and wants. They offered us a tasting and we got to pick out everything and curate our own menu. What really blew us away though was their performance on wedding day. Every detail was perfect, the staff was very professional, and our guests are still raving about their food, weeks after the wedding! They handled everything for us on wedding day, there was not anything we had to worry about. We would absolutely recommend Five Star Catering!Sent on 06/30/2021

A memorable wedding meal
Five Star Catering blew us away with the delicious food they catered at our wedding. We chose salmon, ravioli, and lamb shank as our entrees which were delicious. But the lamb shank stole the show. We had multiple guests who are "foodies" come up to us to tell us how much they enjoyed the food. Laura and her staff were very professional and helpful. They even made sure to bring some hors d'oeuvres during our photo session.Sent on 07/24/2021

Beyond our expectations!
“No one likes the food at weddings, but yours was actually really delicious.” We heard this over and over again after Five Star catered our wedding. And it was true! Our wedding food rivaled that at expensive restaurants. I’m still craving it. There wasn’t a single dish that missed the mark. Five Star has some very talented chefs.
Not only was the food delicious, but the servers were great as well. They were professional, prompt, and even took special care to make sure that we ate. While everything was served family style, we were at a sweetheart table and they actually took the time to make us heaping plates of delicious food.
They also did a great job with our drinks. Our bar and cocktails were beautiful and kept everyone well “hydrated” :)
If you’re looking for wedding food that your guests will actually rave about, Five Star is the catering team to choose!Sent on 11/14/2019
Very professional, and always excellent service. Love working with them!
Great catering services with local, fresh cuisine - the best!
Five Star Catering is incredible to work with. They are responsive, courteous and great team players. The entire staff works really hard to create seamless transitions throughout the event. (I appreciated how they were always one step ahead of me on the last event we worked together!) From planning meetings before the event all the way through cleanup after the event was over, I was impressed by the professionalism and great attitude shown by everyone involved...of course the food was excellent as well :) Overall, Five Star Catering delivered what they promised, offering an incredible value for the food and service provided. I highly recommend Five Star Catering!
