    We had chicken marsala and roast beef with green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, and salad. It was delicious. We received an enormous amount of compliments (especially on their fresh fruit). The food was ready to go right on time and we did not run out. They have years of experience in the catering business.

    When we originally looked at Jester Park, it was owned by a different company other than Food with Flair. We signed for Jester knowing the ownership was changing hands and trusting that Food with Flair was a strong catering system that would allow use to still have the wedding we desired at Jester Park. They did not let us down! Although they are the only caterer allowed at Jester, they were fantastic! They allowed us to bring our own decorations, and set them up to be beautiful and perfect. JoBeth and Diana answered all my questions (and I had a LOT) and their food was to DIE FOR. We got so many compliments on the food and it was served quickly and tasted fantastic - and the lodge was beautiful and classy. Because we signed our contract before Food with Flair had ever hosted a wedding at Jester, as our date got closer they had decided on a few changes that worked better for them as a business but impacted our wedding time and contract. I would suggest reading the contract carefully and being 100% certain on the information included in that contract. The professionalism and hard work of JoBeth and Diana outweighed these minor contractual frustrations. I would definitely suggest Food with Flair and Jester Park for a wedding in the greater DM area!
