    Best wedding food ever

    Kayla was wonderful to work with during this process. We got to try several food options before deciding anything, and they were all so good that we knew our wedding buffet was going to be a hit. They were very accommodating about having sauces on the side and changing the ravioli from porta bella to cheese within the last month before the wedding. Everyone raved about the food and how good it was. We got cupcakes through UpDown as well. There seemed to have been some confusion on the day of the wedding of who was providing them (they thought we were and they were just putting them out for us) but they made a call and got us the cupcakes we ordered. We also had a late night snack - a nacho bar - that was a crowd pleaser. They wrapped up all the leftover food for us to take home. Would definitely recommend them!

    They were the highlight of our reception!

    This was our first experience with Upstairs Downstairs, and it was INCREDIBLE. We hired them for our small backyard wedding reception of 50-60 people and from our first interactions coordinating food selections and the timeline with Kayla to the drop-off food and pick-up of the dishes, we were met with nothing but kindness, flexibility, and the utmost of professionalism. Additionally, we and our guests were SO impressed by the quality and taste of the food. Even our pickiest guests went for seconds (and thirds). They will definitely be getting our business again, and likely the business of many of our guests in the future.

    Delicious food, helpful staff

    Upstairs Downstairs Catering did a phenomenal job at our wedding. Everything was delicious and guests still talk about how good the food was. The staff were courteous and helpful from the set up to the clean up. Our favorite part was the late night soft pretzels- our guests loved them! If you're looking for a responsive, helpful, reasonably priced and delicious caterer- look no further.
