    Amazing food

    Working with Kelly was super fun and easy. All of the food from the appetizers, the small charcuterie boards we had, and the main meal was phenomenal. Would highly recommend them if you’re looking for a more personalized catering experience and want to work with a company that can customize a menu for your wedding!

    Ridgewells was INCREDIBLE to work with.

    We had the most spectacular wedding catered by Ridgewells.

    Grace Duthe was exceptional to work with from the first interaction all the way through to seeing our wedding to the very end at the Top of the Town.

    We went with Ridgewells after vetting them against a few other catering companies and finding them to be the most ethical and transparent in their business (and billing) practices. Grace jumped on so many calls and emails to answer all of my outstanding questions and was super credible to work with.

    We learned throughout the process from a wedding planner, that caterers either charge you on the front-end by listing all of the add-ons and being honest about all the costs (e.g. taxes, coffee p/p), or on the back-end, with slapping you with a huge invoice after the wedding with all the "hidden" fees.

    Ridgewells was incredibly honest upfront with all the fees, and Grace earned my trust right away by not compromising on the quality of service, quality of food, and the integrity of the Ridgewells brand.

    Our tasting was exceptional at Ridgewells office, and the day of our wedding, our server took exceptional care of us on our wedding day whisking us away to enjoy the appetizers and always refilling our champ flutes! Grace's team, Margaret and Kelly, were all lovely to work with.

    I want to have 100 other occasions to hire Ridgewells again! Truly superb staff, food, and service. We couldn't have picked a better catering company!

Whenever I see one of the Ridgewells purple catering trucks driving around the Washington area, I smile to myself as I imagine an image of an elegant ballroom for a wedding or a Bat/Bat Mitzvah all set and ready to accept the arriving guests. As a videographer, I have been present at many such occasions and have made memorable keepsake videos for my clients. Ridgewells is a popular and long established fine caterer in the area. No doubt, I will work another special event sometime soon where this leading caterer will be the culinary vendor of choice.
