Yen and Gary from Real Food Catering could not be easier to work with. They made what could have been a stressful part of the wedding planning so easy AND FUN. They let us provide our ideas and then helped us tweak based on their experience and everything was amazing. We have picky eaters on both sides of our family and literally everyone was telling us how great and abundant the food was. People said that they have never had so much food at a wedding before and they loved that. Yen and Gary also were extremely helpful with our alcohol count, our table placement at the venue, and other details that we were doing on our own, without a wedding planner. They go above and beyond to make you happy before, during and after the wedding.

Yen and Gary from Real Food Catering were absolutely amazing. We could not be happier with how the planning, service and execution turned out for our hybrid chinese/american wedding. Their flexible budgeting and planning process made our lives so much easier. Our venue was an loft/open space rental in Dumbo, NY and needed quite a lot of planning to accomplish properly. They helped us through every step of the way, ceremony layout, DIY decoration placement, space transitions, tea ceremony, schedule, vendor coordination, basically every aspect of the wedding was well thought out and we could not have pulled it off without them. With Real Food Catering, you get so much more than just caters providing food, you get a team that helps you think through the concept and management of the entire event. Weddings can be incredibly stressful and I'm so thankful that we picked Real Food Catering.

Besides the unreal pre-wedding and day-of service they provide, the food was truly top-notch. We had passed Hors D’oeuvres during cocktail hour and the classic seated dinner service. Our guests were split into two types, half traditional chinese that preferred asian inspired cuisine and half hip foodie friends that have always complained about wedding food. Real Food Catering helped us navigate this clashing of preferences by offering a wide range of options like chicken/waffle and peking duck. It's been 3 months since our wedding and we are still receiving compliments from family and friends for the food. Food was my greatest concern because the backlash from a chinese family for going non-chinese traditional family style can be unbearable and Real Food Catering really satisfied everyone! Instead of receiving brutal chinese criticism we're actually receiving praise.

The other 5 star reviews I've read are all true. Real Food Catering is the best option in every imaginable category. Greatest part was that since everything was so well planned we actually both got to eat!!

Delicious food and great service! Yen and Gary have a great team

Real Foods Is Really Fantastic! Yen and Gary are hands on and eager to please. Their couples wedding reception dreams always come true!

I have yet to meet a client or fellow vendor that doesn't rave about Real Food Catering including us! Yen and Gary love what they do and it really shows. Their staff is always smiling and their food makes people smile! I personally love it when we work together. I feel we all work so well as a team that the wedding/party shines even brighter because of it.
