    Excellent customer service

    My fiance and I were looking at this as out caterer for our wedding. The customer service and responsiveness to our questions was quick and friendly. This caterer would have been a great choice if my fiance and I hadn't chosen to go with a destination wedding instead!

    Classic Catering is top notch!

    Fantastic in every way! We worked with Lynn, who is not only experienced with catering, but is very experienced at our venue, The Peabody Library. Lynn is kind, thoughtful, responsive and detailed. She went above and beyond for our wedding attending floral and rental appointments in addition to partnering seamlessly with our coordinator, Aubrey from Simply Created Events. What a duo! All of her recommendations were spot on and flawlessly executed. There was never a line at the bar, there were constant appetizers being butlered. Everyone LOVED the ice cream sundae bar she recommended and most importantly her wait staff was top notch and efficient. So friendly and accommodating but SO GOOD at their jobs. The excellent food was a topic of conversation among several guests that reached out to us after the wedding.. it was fantastic! After our ceremony, a tray of appetizers and signature drinks were brought upstairs for us to enjoy in our first moments together before we went down into the swarms of guests! We always had drinks in our hands and we never even stepped up to the bar. We love Classic and would hire them again in an instant!
