    Perfect Experience- AMAZING food!

    Classic Catering really is the top of the line when it comes to catering in the Baltimore area. They are extremely professional, and it is so evident that their entire team cares about their clients. From the first email to the reception, they handled our event with such grace and care and we were blown away by the quality of the food and how stunning the event ended up being. Thank you so much to Lynn for her personalized touches along the way and pulling off a perfect reception. She really is the best at what she does! At the Peabody library they only work with a few caterers and it is clear that Classic feels at home there and can pull off the event of your dreams! Thank you classic, our guests were raving about the food and service and we will truly remember how amazing the night was for the rest of our lives!

    Consummate professionals.

    Classic Catering People was spectacular.   It’s our understanding that Classic is chosen approximately 90% of the time to cater Peabody weddings, and we completely understand why. David was our account executive, and he knows the library like the back of his hand. He knows which dishes can be made in the extremely limited catering facilities, and which dishes need to be avoided. He knows how to address all the crazy transportation logistics surrounding the venue. In addition to his depth of knowledge, David is always responsive and constantly accessible.  He charmed us at our first meeting and impressed us with the endless ways Classic could tailor the food menu and drink selection.   At our official tasting, he took detailed notes on our reactions, and even accompanied us to our tableware and linen vendor, giving us assuring advice on our final decisions.   


    On the wedding day itself, we experienced just how deeply Classic’s staff takes pride in their work. The food was fantastic, in variety and taste, and they far surpassed our expectations in the amazing bar service.  The waitstaff was unfailingly gracious, friendly, and kind (even briefly boogeying on our dance floor!). All night long, we received endless compliments about the cocktail hour, dinner menu, and drinks.

    Our wedding reception was wonderful, and huge part of that is due to David and his team at the Classic Catering People. We truly cannot recommend them highly enough for anyone planning an event at the Peabody.
