    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.
    Overall they make amazing food and make a memorable meal.

    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!

    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!
