Phenomenal service and delicious food!
A caterer can make or break your wedding... and Helga's knocked it out of the park! I absolutely loved working with them. We had a very tight budget and Helga's was incredibly accommodating to it, while still providing excellent service. They bring a lot of experience to the table, and Michael and the staff were so attentive to every little detail. I came to the tasting with a list of questions, and they were prepared for everything. The food was delicious and I received many compliments from wedding guests. The wait staff went above and beyond - they were constantly thinking of little ways to help guests (and my husband and I) enjoy the day (and keep it drama-free!).Sent on 10/02/2019
Besides my wedding photographer, Helga's was my FAVORITE vendor! So responsive and thoughtful. If you're on the fence, just do a tasting with them... you won't be disappointed!

Helga's Catering makes fabulous food and offers great service!
We are beyond thrilled to have worked with Helga’s Catering for our wedding. First of all, the food was unbelievably delicious, and our guests raved about all of it, from cocktail hour hors d’oeuvres to entrees. I’m allergic to gluten so I was intimidated about the prospect of finding a caterer who could accommodate a completely gluten-free menu, and from the very beginning Michael, the owner, assured me that it would be easy to do, which made me feel safe and relaxed enough to enjoy everything on our menu. We got to customize our menu and Michael was even open to making a Paraguayan family recipe for us; when we opted to have my sister make it instead using my grandmother’s recipe, he was incredibly gracious and the staff even heated and cut our family dish. He made sure we could serve exactly what we wished, and as if that weren’t enough, his staff took incredible care of my husband and me throughout the day. We had a buffet dinner and they offered to make a plate for us, and they checked on us repeatedly to make sure we had plenty of booze and water, too. We ordered cake from a gluten-free bakery, and because we ordered two kitchen cakes, they had those precut and ready to go so our guests could dig in right after we cut the display cake. They plated the display cake quickly, too, and I was able to share a piece of all three flavors with my husband because they made sure mealtime went very smoothly! Cleanup was so quick that I didn’t even notice it happening, and they boxed everything up perfectly, including the top layer of our cake. If you want to serve food that you and your guests love AND you want to make sure everyone is beautifully cared for along the way, we highly recommend Helga’s Catering.Sent on 10/09/2019
I was the wedding coordinator on behalf of a couple that hired Helga's Catering for their wedding. I was very impressed with their level of service. They not only provided food but were in charge of all set up, break down, linens, dishes, etc. They drew out a floor plan prior to the wedding, which was very helpful for myself and the bride/groom. They were also in charge of clean up and I don't mean just breaking down the tables and clearing out. They vacuumed, among other things, and made the room look as though we were never there. Additionally, they arrived 30 minutes before the vendor start time, to begin set up, eager to get everything started. Of course, the food was great too!
Helga's is wonderful to work with; they stay in constant contact with the customer and with coordinators; very accommodating in terms of changes and specialty requests; wonderful, gracious and helpful staff with "can-do" attitudes, you really can't ask for more! Did I mention the food is also delicious?
