One of the best choices we made for our wedding

We chose RSVP as our caterer after receiving sample menus from at least 5 other local caterers, and attending 2 other tastings. RSVP stood out to us as the perfect combination of excellent quality food, unique presentation, and reasonable price. We were especially grateful to have chosen RSVP after Covid hit and we were forced to downsize our wedding from our original indoor wedding venue with 180 guests to a small backyard tented wedding of 40 guests. RSVP (Maura in particular) could not have been more accommodating, even though the change meant that the contract value was less than half of what was originally expected. Maura personally visited our home twice before the wedding day to make sure everything would run smoothly, and was there on the wedding day overseeing everything. RSVP provided beautiful tableware to fit our backyard "rustic chic" vibe, including long tables, wicker chargers, and gold flatware, and were so patient in allowing us to make changes to these selections along the way. On the day of, there was heavy rain throughout our wedding, but the RSVP service staff and bartenders were incredibly professional and flexible in working in the rain and mud under challenging conditions. We also really appreciated how Maura and RSVP were willing to incorporate all Covid safety precautions we requested, including a Plexiglass shield at the bar, face shields for staff, drink covers, and gloves. Our guests raved about how professional the staff were and how good the food was (despite being prepared in our house!). We are so grateful to have chosen RSVP for our wedding and encourage you to do so, too. (And make sure to order the everything bagel macarons - a highlight!!)

Fantastic Wedding Catering

RSVP Catering was the perfect caterer! Our wedding venue recommended RSVP and we found that it was competitively priced for the area. They were a breeze to coordinate with - Alexandra and Casey were always prompt, professional, and friendly. RSVP has many menu options, making it easy to accommodate any dietary restrictions. Based on the tasting, we were able to tweak the preparation of some dishes which we really appreciated! We were initially nervous for the rentals appointment with Select Event Group - their rental partner - because we didn't have a strong idea going in for what we wanted to pick. However, they walked us through all the options, answered our many questions, and didn't rush our live decision-making at all. RSVP had worked with our planners and venue before so their coordination was seamless. On the day, RSVP went above and beyond! We missed cocktail hour due to family portraits and when we went to change before our entrance, the head server ensured that we had drinks and appetizers brought to the room, which we greatly appreciated since we hadn't eaten much up to that point. The serving itself was stunningly coordinated and a couple requests made by my parents were immediately executed. One of my biggest concerns was ensuring that guests with allergies had no issues and RSVP had that well under control. The food itself was delicious and many guests raved about it after the wedding. We can't recommend Alexandra and RSVP Catering enough!

Superb catering for wedding!

Parents of the bride here... Couple chose RSVP, and we couldn't have been happier with their catering. The tasting was professional and individual. The actual wedding hors d'oeuvres and meals were superb. But the meal service was exceptional. Everyone's food arrived at each table at the same time and was still hot! The server management was seamless and professional. Really couldn't have been better.

To say that Casey and her Team were remarkable, would be a gross understatement!! From the time I initially reached out, RSVP Catering was always prompt in their responses. They easily worked with me on developing the menu, and its details, so that the Client鈥檚 wedding was executed exactly as envisioned. The food was deliciously and genuinely crafted with precision, and the guests were always craving more! Throughout the day of, Casey, the Chef, and the Supervisor kept me informed, and were beyond pleasant and professional at all times. If you鈥檙e in need of a caterer, RSVP Catering should be YOUR number one and only call!!

Blue Valley Vineyard and Winery Blue Valley Vineyard and Winery Winery Weddings

RSVP has been catering for Blue Valley Vineyard and Winery for the past two years. They offer excellent food, style and service. They are on Blue Valley's "Approved Vendor List" for many reason's although I think one of their biggest assets is the fact that they bring their own planner along to ensure they meet, or usually exceed, their clients expectations and to ensure their event run smoothly. I love having Abbey and Marsha apart of the Blue Valley team, they are amazing to work and their service is impeccable. They are one of the best!!

Birkby House Birkby House Mansion Weddings

Marsha Meltzer has done most of the weddings for RSVP. If you are a "foodie", you must attend one of the open houses. Everything from the hors d'oeuvres to the desserts are not just tantalizing to the taste buds but presented with the upmost flair. Marsha will be a wonderful help to any bride with designing every detail of your table settings and food displays.
