    The best of the best!!

    Rania and her team were simply amazing! Rania is efficient and thorough throughout the entire planning process and the big day itself! Due to a venue change 45 days before our wedding, we were WAY behind on catering services at the new venue. Rania took us under her wing and walked us through every step of the way. Even our tasting was a breeze with her head chef Aaron and pastry chef Patty! She helped us with everything from the timeline to the rentals and of course the most delicious menu. Our guests were in awe of the food! It was DELICIOUS!! Everyone was so pleased with the dinner service and the timing of the evening as well!

    Rania and her team completely rocked the large task of flipping our ceremony space into our reception space so that we could keep our event outdoors. They were efficient and it turned out beautifully! Floor managers Cyndi and Jessica were incredible!! They left no stone unturned- we couldn’t be more grateful for the entire team!! The entire staff from chefs to waiters to bartenders created a fun, safe and seamless evening!

    Thank you all so much for making our day perfect!

    Hello Brooke and thank you for your thoughtful and incredible review. Needless to say, this was a most unusual year for weddings and the fact that we were able to plan and cater your wedding in such a short period of time was amazing due to your positive attitude and flexibility on all points. What impressed me the most was the fact that you changed all of your plans without hesitation to comply with the CDC's requirements in regard to the COIVID-19 pandemic, which was not an easy task. I am so happy that you were pleased with your wedding reception and with our services. I wish you and Cole all the best that life has to offer and hope that you will stay in touch with us. Again, many thanks for the opportunity to be of service.

    Catering that takes away the worry.

    Rania’s Catering is amazing and I do not use the word amazing to describe anything, especially when planning my daughter’s wedding. Rania’s entire team was the most impressive staff I have witnessed, working tirelessly and happily the entire evening. Staffing was perfectly scheduled to service our guest from the cocktail hour through the end of the evening. No waiting in bar lines to get a cocktail, meals were served hot to every guest at each table at the same time and the service continued as wine was served during dinner and cake service. The food was remarkable. The team of 9 chefs did a fabulous job. All food was cooked on site. The Hors d’oeuvres, the Chilean Sea Bass, Filet Mignon, Red Pepper and Sundried Tomato Stuffed Pasta was incredible. Meals were very important to us. We wanted all of our guest to be happy with dinner not just satisfied . Rania and her team exceeded our expectations. We received so many compliments on the food during the wedding and the days that followed. Compliments such as “never had wedding food like this” or “The filet was cooked to perfection.” and “ The fish was so thick and perfectly prepared and still hot. “ I should mention we had guest with food allergies who enjoyed the entire evening knowing they could enjoy the food without worry. The attention to detail Rania provides you while planning a special event is unmatched. Our family was blessed to have Rania and her team be a special part of our daughter’s wedding.
