Real Food catering is the only way to go if you are putting together a wedding where you provide your own caterer. Yen and Gary are PHENOMENAL - personally, professionally and as foodies!! But their expertise does not stop at just the food. They help with everything - from giving suggestions to other fabulous vendors, to helping you with your floor plan, choosing your alcohol, wine and champagne, helping with your timeline and giving ideas on how to make your night the best it can possibly be.
Our food was exceptional. Our guests raved about how delicious, fresh, and flavorful it all was - from appetizers to dessert! We chose the peking duck in sticky rice buns as one of our unlimited appetizers and we literally had guests stalking the staffers for them - people texted us this week asking about our caterer and what all the wonderful food was that they ate at our wedding. Gary is the best - he is hands on and helps ensure your night is all it can be and more. We wanted for nothing during our reception - he and Yen made sure we had everything! Also, their prices are so competitive - in NYC, where everything tends to be overprices, Real Food is honest and works with you to make sure you are getting the best you can possible get for fair prices per guest.
The day of and days after, guests have complimented, posted, emailed and texting using words/phrases such as "EPIC", "BEST WEDDING EVER" and "WEDDING OF THE CENTURY"...we could not have achieved that level of enjoyment, sophistication and deliciousness with our guests if it weren't for Yen and Gary. To all NYC bride to be's and groom to be's, go with Real Food Catering and you will have the best night of your life. Our suggestion is to contact them early - because they are so hands-on, they can only do so many weddings per year.

Yen & Gary have outstanding reviews online everywhere, but these 5-stars don't even do justice to just how incredible Real Food Catering is! This fabulous duo helped me in every aspect of planning - they went above and beyond with everything! They held my hand through the entire process, explained everything clearly, created a floor plan, dealt with the rentals, hooked me up with *the best desserts* and a sushi station, and were all around AWESOME. Talented, geniune, funny, a complete pleasure to work with -- not to mention, all of the food offered is delicious (go to your taste test starving). I love them! If you're considering them, let me sway your booking decision - *DO IT.*

For any brides and grooms looking for an amazing caterer who makes you feel like family - look no further; Real Food Catering is five star. Yen, Gary, and their staff are truly the best in their craft. From day one, they worked with us to make sure the food, cocktails, and vision stayed within budget. Our July 28th wedding couldn’t have been more perfect thanks to Yen and the team! Yen was super attentive and accommodating to our needs the entire night. The waitstaff was always available while remaining stealth and the bartenders were top-notch and kept up with the crowd effortlessly. Almost a month later and our guests are still talking about the yummy food and drinks - especially the steak, the French 75, and desserts! Yen & Gary - thank you for everything! You are true professionals who worked seamlessly among all of our vendors, and we couldn’t be happier.
