    Great full-service caterer!

    We booked H&J for our small wedding, and they did an amazing job as a full catering service! The food was good, and they had a nice selection to choose from at reasonable prices. Besides the food, they had excellent service. We rented a DIY type venue (Ithaca Farmers Market), and they took care of pretty much everything! This included providing an amazing event coordinator, setting up decorations (and even supplied some!), renting tables/linens,, and cleaning up after the wedding was done. Also, they were able to accommodate a smaller guest count (which not all vendors do) without any problems! They really made the day go smoothly! We would recommend them for the full catering experience for any special occasional.

    H&J Catering is a wonderful wedding catering business!
    After my husband and I had chosen The Farmers Market in Ithaca, NY as our wedding venue, we were looking for caterers who could provide food and drinks for our wedding reception. After searching for several months with a particular budget in mind, we chose H&J catering because they offered the full package of buffet, open bar, and table decorations within our personal price range.

    Highlights of H&J Catering:
    The Coordinator: Rene Peckham was organized, attentive, and enthusiastic about our wedding plans and went above and beyond my expectations for a caterer. Rene made sure my husband I ate: she and other waiter served both of personally at our wedding. In addition to her and and her staff always being coordinated and on the ball, she worked very well with the photographer and DJ to keep everything flowing smoothly. She was supportive and enthusiastic about each aspect of the planning and made our day easy, fun, and magical.
    Decor: The decorations made the market look very elegant. Rene added a hanging sheet to a booth, so that I had somewhere to hide before walking down the aisle.
    Buffet: The food was excellent: there were three main entrees and various sides. H&J Catering did a wonderful job of accommodating unique food allergies (and all of their food is nut free). After dinner there was coffee and tea (we brought a tier cake from Wegmans).
    Transitions: The transitions from ceremony to cocktail hour, and on to dinner, were so smooth many guests later commented they didn’t realize the changes were happening. The whole event went very smoothly thanks to Rene and the catering staff!
    Flexibility: We never felt pressured to spend more money on extra menu items, and Rene was very accommodating when we decided to bring our own cake.
    We are so pleased with our choice to have Rene and the H&J Catering staff at our wedding. 100% recommend H&J! Thank you Rene for making our wedding day magical!

    I've had the pleasure of working with H&J Hospitality at both the Ithaca Yacht Club and Emerson Park Pavilion. My experience with them has been exceptional each time. Adrienne has been easy to contact and always very accommodating and easy to work with. The service they provide is second to none and the facilities they service are among the finest in the Fingerlakes region. You can be confident you will be well cared for in their hands!
