From the beginning of planning to the day of our wedding, Bobby and Putting on the Ritz were accomodating, responsive, and flexible. For our budget, Putting on the Ritz provided the best options in our opinion. Guests loved the food, and we were so happy that they put an emphasis on making sure we were fed during our reception as well. Highly recommended!

Our biggest wedding priority was the quality of the food, and Putting on the Ritz absolutely delivered. Our venue had a predetermined list of caterers to pick from, and of the 5-6 that we initially contacted, Putting On The Ritz was the only company who actually delivered a sample menu that was exactly in line with the food and budget that we wanted. We worked with Rachael from start to finish and she was so wonderful: Knowledgeable, warm, and very flexible! She was super responsive to all of our questions, even when we emailed her at 10:45 PM in a panic about something not actually that important.

The food and service the day of was incredible. Everyone raved about how delicious everything was and the staff even boxed up the leftovers for my husband and I to take home (and there was a generous amount of leftovers!) We had a buffet but the servers brought us a plate full of food right away, so we were actually able to enjoy the meal and still have time to greet our guests. We were also able to provide our own alcohol while POTR provided the mixers and soft bar, and it was nice to have customized drink offerings (and be able to take home the unopened bottles!).

Choosing Putting on the Ritz was one of the best decisions we made for the wedding. We're still dreaming about their shrimp and grits!

Wow, Great Food and Professional Staff. Worked with them for years and can not say enough good about them.

Putting on the Ritz is a fabulous caterer as I've worked with them at many venues here in the MD, VA, DC area. Their staff is always courteous and the food and display of their offerings are excellent. Personally, I hired them for our daughter's wedding and am so happy with that decision. I can easily recommend Putting on the Ritz Catering for my clients.

Putting on the Ritz Catering is a pleasure to work with. From the great customer service to the close out of the event I have 100% enjoyed working with the staff at Putting on the Ritz. I would highly recommend the catering service from POTR. Toni Taylor c/o EverMoreEvents II

As wedding photographers, we always breathe a sigh of relief when someone says they're using Putting on the Ritz. We know that the night will go super smooth for the bride & groom and their guests, and for us! Putting on the Ritz is an amazing vendor to work with; their staff is always smiling and accommodating. I can honestly say that I've never seen a staff so devoted to working WITH the other vendors. They always make sure we're taken care of and go the extra mile to avoid getting caught in our photos. They are amazing. In fact, we've hired them for events we hosted, including Rob's 20th high school reunion a few years back, so we can say as vendors AND as customers, they are top notch and we would recommend them to anyone and everyone who is in need of a 5 star caterer!

Putting on the Ritz does a fabulous job! Wonderful food, helpful and friendly staff, great presentation. I love working with them!
