    Excellent!

    Gina and Mary were a breeze to work with. We had an absolutely amazing experience from start to finish! They made planning a wedding in a pandemic a walk in the park.

    A dream come true!!

    A wedding to remember for the rest of our lives!!! The staff was so welcoming and professional. Very willing to help whenever it was needed. The food tasted awesome and our guests are still talking about the food til this day! From the drinks to our cake! Not one bad thing to say about the food throughout our wedding!! I especially liked the option to donated some of our leftovers. It means a lot to be able to do that. It is something we like to do on our own time. The owner Gina is a true gem 💎. She understands the importance of flavor and can accommodate any culture. She went out of her way to make empanadas foe our late night snack and they were delicious! Something our families were also raving about! I love that she can also accommodate any dietary needs! This is a HUGE plus when hiring any caterer! Not only did we get to have her as our caterer but we got to book her gorgeous venue Moonstone Manor! Another plus to having a consistent flow during your wedding planning! Thank you so much foe everything! We loved you guys! We would do it all again if we could! We will certainly be celebrating our first year anniversary with you all! Xoxo

    Look no further --- Hire immediately

    My wife and I could not have been happier with our choice to have Food for Thought cater our wedding. From the moment we met Gina, she went out of her way to get to know my wife and I, what type of restaurants we dine at, what we tend to make at home, and what we like in a "special occasion" meal. She took all of our input and created a custom menu full of options that we were able to further customize to our liking and our attendees liking.

    The tasting was a smorgasbord of endless goodness Gina customized to help us narrow down her extensive list of phenomenal options.

    The day of our event, the food was an absolute hit. No one could believe variety and number of appetizers, entrees, and desserts we had for a smaller affair. Friends and family still talk about certain dishes and how they've tried to replicate them --- unsuccessfully I might add:)

    All in all, after meeting Gina once and hearing her thoughts and suggestions, we looked no further and have zero regrets. We would highly recommend Food for Thought and would use Gina in a heartbeat for any other future event where catering may be needed.

    Thanks again!
    Mike & Kendra
