Perfect! Amazing food and people!!

Best caterer I have ever worked with! They were a huge part of making our daughter鈥檚 wedding amazing! The presentation is artistic and beautiful. The service is outstanding-simply ask and they make it happen. They are incredibly responsive and make the process as stress free as possible. And, most importantly, the food is DELICIOUS!! We worked with them before when they catered another of our daughter鈥檚 wedding, which was also an amazing experience! It says a lot that so many of our relatives and friends commented on how thrilled they were that Premiere was catering because they remembered how wonderful the food was eleven years ago. They were not disappointed this time around! Our guests raved about everything-especially the mini grilled cheese and tomato soup appetizers, the cedar plank salmon and the Mac and cheese! There are not sufficient words to thank John and the staff for everything!!

Amazing all around!

Michael and the Premiere Catering staff were so amazing to work with. From our tasting appointment, to our site walk through and the big day, Premiere Catering executed everything perfectly with the upmost professionalism. All of the food was simply delicious, we received so many compliments and would recommend Michael and his team to anyone looking for an excellent caterer.

Absolutely Amazing

Premiere Catering was not only one of the most professional companies I have ever worked with, they were just the nicest people as well! From start to finish they were there for all of our questions and concerns and they put us at ease. I seriously felt like a VIP every time we went in to talk to them. When our 150 person guest count wedding went down to just 20 people they were ready to do what ever we needed to still have the wedding of our dreams which still included the best food! The food was just as extraordinary as their professionalism. I looked around as everyone was eating and I knew that we had picked the right people! Nothing but satisfied faces. I cannot express enough how much you will love Premiere!

The food they serve is truly amazing from the delectable hour'derves and main course, including vegetarian and gluten free options, to the spectacular array of deserts. However, it is their top of the line service that makes them stand out. Whatever event you are considering them for, we highly recommend Premier Catering.
