    Great experience

    Our venue only let us choose between 2 caterers. I reached out to both, and Renaissance was BY FAR the easiest to communicate with, discuss prices, and arrange meetings. Our tasting was a wonderful experience- it was honestly a fun date night on top of being wedding work! We would've chosen to have all the food if we could have. It was also really nice that the chef left us alone while we were eating so we could think and talk to each other without pressure. We had a buffet so we chose options we thought the most people would enjoy. A representative from Ren Chef attended our final meeting with our venue the month prior to the big day, which was a great opportunity to hammer out some smaller details we hadn't thought of, such as offering hot apple cider and flavored water at the ceremony site. They were super flexible with us regarding our guest count, as we had a few guests who had family emergencies and we didn't know if they were coming until the last minute. As for the Big Day... my mom and aunt couldn't get over how great the wait staff was. The staff helped my new husband and I with drinks and our meals and checked on us frequently to make sure we didn't need anything. And OF COURSE, the food was amazing!!! I was so sad that I didn't have much of an appetite because I wanted to eat it ALL! Luckily, they boxed up a bunch of food to send with my husband and I so we could really enjoy it at our hotel that night!

    Great Food and Service!!

    We worked with Erin start to finish and were very pleased with her knowledge and customer service. She ended up working the wedding due to someone leaving and could not have been more pleasant. Jake (chef/owner) is very personable and was very responsive to the allergy meals that were required. Food was absolutely delicious. My husband said that it was much better than anticipated, even though we did a tasting a year earlier. The service staff were very attentive and took excellent care of the guests. Would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a mid price caterer. You will not be disappointed.

    Amazing food!

    I am so happy my husband and I chose Renaissance Chef to cater our wedding. They were so flexible and responsive. Erin did such a great job at getting back to be in a timely manner when I had millions of questions. The food was absolutely incredible - Jake does an amazing job! The staff on the day of our wedding were so polite and made sure we had everything we needed. I would highly recommend Renaissance Chef to anyone who is looking for a caterer for any type of event - you won’t regret it!!
