    Such a wonderful experience and delicious food!

    We had a really positive experience with The Pantry catering, beginning with our first contact and ending with our wedding night. After talking with several caterers about our cocktail party vision for our New Year's Eve wedding, we were getting a little discouraged. One caterer told us that we should do a buffet dinner with no seating (what?!) and another scoffed at our ideal budget and gave us a minimum budget that was almost double what we were hoping. Then we reached out to The Pantry (we should have known, because our venue said that they're a favorite!) and we were so happy with the responsiveness, flexibility, and creative ideas for our wedding!

    We had our tasting, and even though we were requesting a cocktail style wedding, the chef still served us an amazing four course meal with champagne, all free of charge. It felt like we were old friends as we ate and discussed ideas. They were happy to work with our budget and gave us ideas on how to best reduce costs.

    In the coming months, there was a turnover with the person at The Pantry who was managing our wedding, but the transition was seamless. We had several meetings with Amanda and I felt completely at ease in her hands. The wedding day went off without a hitch, our rentals were gorgeous, service was amazing, and everyone was raving about the food.

    We knew from the start that we would be happy with choosing The Pantry and we are so pleased that we chose them for our wedding. We can't recommend them highly enough!!

    The best decision of the wedding!

    All along, one of the main things we wanted our wedding to be was a celebration with great food and drink. If that’s what you’re looking for, book The Pantry as soon as possible. Our catering search was a comedy of errors, including double bookings of appointments, missed calls, laughably expensive quotes, and one caterer that invited us into their kitchen for a tasting that blew our socks off.

    Daniel and his team were welcoming, personable, and served absolutely incredible food. You’d expect the staff to be used to certain dishes and get a bit tired of the same courses. But when one of his workers heard what he was making, she whipped around in her chair, exclaimed “He’s MAKING the Caribbean PORK!?!?!?! THAT MEANS WE GET LEFTOVERS!!!!!” And that should kind of tell you exactly what you’re getting yourself into. We left the tasting and sat in the car for ten minutes debating if we should book without trying other caterers (again, given the experience we had, this was a legitimate question).

    Expect a personalized menu (we had the aforementioned Caribbean pork, chicken tacos, and the bistro filet) with all the necessary sides at exactly the same high caliber of cooking. The steak was perfectly done, and even the groom’s normally picky Texan brother commented that it was the first time he’d had steak at a wedding that wasn’t overcooked. Everyone else present continually complimented the food throughout the evening.

    There were some slight hiccups along the way; namely the coordinator we’d been working with since booking suddenly changed… which we didn’t know until our walkthrough with the venue when someone we’d never met walked in. Things went smoothly from that point, but it still added a slightly stressful wrinkle two weeks before the wedding.

    5/5, one of the most important parts of our reception was absolutely perfect and exceeded everyone’s expectations.

    The Pantry Catering catered my daughters wedding this past weekend at The American Visionary Arts Museum. They did an absolutely fabulous job and the food and service was perfect. More importantly they were so great to work with - we met with them many times during the year before and they handled all of our requests. They were so accommodating throughout and especially the days leading up to the wedding. We loved seeing the same faces at our wedding that worked with us throughout the planning. Daniel, Jamie and staff we cannot thank you enough for everything you did to make Nikki and Ryan's wedding perfect.
