We used Main Event Catering for our 110 person wedding in Washington, D.C. We had done several tastings prior to visiting Main Event and were feeling a little down about our options for the big day. Then we went to our tasting at Main Event. We felt like VIPs from the moment we arrived at their location in Arlington. We had a special parking space and were shown to their beautiful tasting room. Elyse McFadden was our main point of contact (and continued to be throughout the planning process). She was such a joy to work with. She is incredibly competent, experienced, and easy to work with. We LOVED the food and specialty cocktails at the tasting. We were amazed by how delicious everything was, and thought it wouldn't be possible that they could replicate such deliciousness en masse for 110 people. However, they truly delivered. All of our food was excellent. The set up for the event was also wonderfully-executed and all of the waitstaff who attended to us and our guests were so warm, friendly, and attentive. We would recommend Main Event to anyone.

Amazing company and amazing people. This company knows how to be helpful and create generous service to no limits. the food was terrific, and overall reasonably priced. The server seemed to read my mind and was taking care of everything as I thought of it. Everyone involved - from planning to set-up to serving, to clean-up was so professional and pleasant. We were able to put on the event we wanted within the budget we'd planned every time. Great work with Spencer and team last year and many more weddings to go.

Main Event has done many events here at our gallery and they were great! Efficient staff, start to finish service with not just food but also the equipment, clean up and staffing. I would always recommend them as a go to for weddings or private events!

Main Event did a wonderful job here at Rocklands Farm. It is not easy working without the comforts of a kitchen, but they were very careful to provide a wonderful experience for the bride. They are welcome back anytime!

As Event Planners we work with a lot of caterers and we have to say that Main Event Caterers are superb to work with and their menus/food is outstanding. Our clients have been extremely pleased with the value and service they received with Main Event as their caterer.
