“Some of the best food we’ve ever had” - everyone at the wedding!

I am SO grateful that we worked with Jordan for our wedding. He was so flexible and whatever we needed, he made it work (venue changes, dietary restrictions, any issues that arose day of, etc.). The tasting was a wonderful experience on its own and you could tell Jordan took the time to make it special for us. Day of, the food was delicious and all presented beautifully. Our guests have continued reaching out after the wedding just to tell us how good everything was. We’re even getting our family’s thanksgiving meal from Golden Carrot! Jordan is such a talented chef who (along with a wonderful team) delivers creative, truly incredible food.

Very amazing

I recently had a large event catered by Golden Carrot Catering and all I can say is WOW! The whole team was a delight to work with from start to finish and the attention to details when it came to our restrictions/requests were impeccable. The food was the best we’ve ever had catered and worth every cent. Very high end and gourmet. I highly recommend for any event

Best in New Jersey

This was the second time we used Golden Carrot Catering and we were thrilled with them both times. This time it was for our Wedding! On the day of the event, they went above and beyond to ensure that everything looked wonderful. Our guests loved the food and the set up. The wait staff was friendly and professional. Couldn’t have asked for more. Honestly, may be the best caterer in New Jersey!
