Great Catering Service

Portsmouth Catering Co. did an excellent job catering our wedding. Despite the wet weather, the servers always made sure that we (bride and groom) had plenty to eat/drink and even brought appetizers to our family members who weren鈥檛 able to make it to cocktail hour because of the heavy rain. Michael was also great to work with; he was super helpful during the planning process and cooked a variety of delicious food for our big day. In fact, we received numerous compliments from our guests about how good the appetizers and dinner buffet were!

AMAZING is an understatement

As most know, food and beverage are some of the most important concepts when hosting a wedding. Mike and his team put on a flawless evening - I can鈥檛 even explain how many people RAVED over the food. Let me tell you if you're looking for a delicious meal - GET THE SHORT RIB.

Thank you so much to Mike, Nic and the rest of the team for making our wedding so beautiful.

10 stars - must have wedding catering

10 STARS!!! (At least!) Michael and his team MUST be your wedding caterer, there is no doubt. Michael spent countless hours with me and my family to ensure we had the perfect menu. He accommodated every one of our quirky menu requests, including the most delicious (and cute) sesame noddle takeout boxes during apps! He also curated an incredible Noah board that my husband and I got to enjoy while taking our portraits because Michael鈥檚 team prioritized getting us food the whole night. We were even served our late night snack of pretzel bites while on the dance floor! The assortment of our buffet bar was incredible and our guests LOVED getting to taste so many different flavors (that complimented each other) on one plate. Michael and his team even helped us come up with the BEST summer signature drinks.
