Food & Entire Team 10/10

If I could give 10 stars, I would! We are now 11 days removed from our wedding, and there hasn't been a day that has gone by that we haven't received some form of rave review of the Best Day...the food and food service being at the top of the list of compliments. Debbie & Sara (my wedding angel) were nothing short of fabulous from day one of inquiring about our date. They walked us through the process so gracefully and really helped to ease any sort of nerves that I had about how the day was going to run smoothly and exceptionally. Everyone that we encountered throughout the process of planning our day went above and beyond, and left us with the feeling that we had certainly picked the right place.

The day of the wedding was nothing short of perfect. ALL of the food, from cocktail hour to dessert, was just as good (if not better) than anything we could have found at a top-rated restaurant. The food tasted just as wonderful for our 140 guests as it did for our private 2-person tasting, which seemed to be an incredible feat.

Even beyond the quality of all the food, we (and all of our guests) were blown away by the entire team. Every single one of the servers, bartenders, and chefs was kind, attentive, efficient, FUN!, and polite.

10/10, could not recommend Perfect Setting enough. Best decision we made since deciding to go on our first date

10/10 best experience

Nicole Sigda and her team was absolutely immaculate. The food, service, communication, from start to finish exceptional. We chose Perfect Setting for our wedding at Merion Tribute House. The food for this day was very important to me and we wanted a wide variety not just a seated serving meal of beef or poultry. Perfect Setting offered food stations of all varieties, and checked every selection off my mental list of food we would like to enjoy. From the bay station, grill station, a potato bar, all the pastas your heart desires, we did it all. Her team even organized platters for us to take home since our nerves got the best of us and our appetites were nonexistent. Every guest was raving about the dinning experience. We had the experience to enjoy all of our stations the following day and we were blown away. If you ever get the opportunity to cater an event do yourself a favor and choose Perfect Setting.
