    We couldn't have been more pleased with The Food Muse catering for our wedding! We got married in September and hired Linda, Evan, & their team for catering and bar service and they did a FANTASTIC job! Bottom line: We would absolutely recommend them for any event - they earned (and deserve) this five star rating!
    We priced several caterers in Lancaster & surrounding areas, and The Food Muse was at the top of the list in terms of our budget and services we were looking for. I reached out to Linda, who was always so quick to email me back (even on weekends when they were super busy with other weddings!), and she was so flexible and easy to work with! She helped me get all the details situated & gave us plenty of guidance, which I really appreciated! We chose a plated dinner (as opposed to buffet style) and all of the options were delicious! BONUS: Linda was great about accommodating guests with special dietary needs, which was super helpful since we had a few friends with food allergies.
    Evan was the go-to for bar service questions, and this was also SUPER helpful! He gave me a ton of guidance on putting together a purchase list for our specific needs and number of guests, and wrote up a really great guide for us to use. Linda and Evan were both so great about working with us, I can't say enough good things!
    On the day of our wedding, I had the pleasure of meeting Linda for the first time (though briefly) while they were setting up, and she was such a sweetheart! I didn't get to meet Evan, but my husband did and had the same good things to say! Their entire team was so nice, and so professional! Cocktail hour was a hit, and guests couldn't get over how great all the appetizers were! They even made sure to send a staff member out with apps for the bridal party during photos! Dinner service was quick, bar lines were never too long, and everything was DELICIOUS! The dessert fondue bar was also a highlight of the night! Again, we can't say enough good things!

    It was a pleasure to work with the Food Muse for my wedding this September. From the first meeting to go over menu options and working with my budget, to the final clean up the day of, I always felt well taken care of. The Food Muse truly exceeded my expectations. The food was delicious and we got lots of compliments from our guests! Everything looked beautiful too! I would recommend the Food Muse to anyone!
