People were shocked at how good the food was

I can鈥檛 express how great the staff was! As the bride, they checked in with me to make sure everything was going smoothly and that I had everything I needed. Guests came up to me saying they couldn鈥檛 believe how good the food was and how it was cooked to the perfect temperature. Thank you for everything you did! Wouldn鈥檛 have changed a thing.

Park Ave is a must hire for your wedding!

Park Ave Catering has been an absolute dream to work with. They catered our wedding and truly blew us away with their professionalism, responsiveness, and excellence! Not only is the food insanely great, the staff is amazing and the coordinators are top notch. They handled all of the rentals for us, kept the event running on time, and did it all with the best attitude. I would highly recommend them for your wedding or event. Absolutely a must hire.

Spectacular!

PAC is just spectacular! Anthony was so wonderful and easy to work with - he was great at answering all our questions and crafting the service we envisioned. On top of that, he had awesome suggestions that really helped make the dining experience (without being too forceful with those suggestions). Everyone raved about the food - so many of our guests said it was the best food at a wedding they ever had! They even gave my wife and I a tote with leftovers and cake at the end of the evening - a nice touch that's so emblematic of the fantastic service they provide. The staff was great - so many people complimented on how nice the bartenders were, which I feel like you never hear!
