Stress-free and delicious! :-)
I cannot say enough wonderful things about this caterer. From my first call, I felt comfortable putting our wedding in Mia’s hands. She spoke with me very early on in the planning when everything tends to be super overwhelming and stressful, and was so reassuring. I don’t know how she managed to calm me down that day, but I knew I wanted someone like her on our team of vendors. She and an assistant met with my now husband and I to go over all of the details, what we envisioned along with their suggestions from their own experience – what works at a wedding, what doesn’t, what’s popular, etc. We were then able to taste some of their selections at a local event the company hosted at the Hunterdon Art Museum, which was delightful. At our personal tasting at their beautiful new location in Frenchtown, they presented all of our menu selections, with explanation of how each dish was prepared, and graciously answered any and all questions from us and both of our mothers who attended with us. In the weeks before our wedding, Mia introduced me to the team who would be managing our wedding, Marina and Tara, who got on a call with me and spent nearly an hour of their time reviewing every single detail so I could feel reassured that they had everything under control. They were able to answer all of my questions and offer advice on any pending items we had yet to complete. The food was raved about at our wedding, we served a plated meal of beef tendeloin, harvest cider chicken, or vegetarian option, along with appetizers of course for our cocktail hour (the candied bacon is the BEST!). While we had a friend offer to make our cake for us, they helped cut and serve it up, and provided additional assorted desserts to compliment it. (They also can work with you on a cake as well, if you’re not working with a separate party on that). The staff was very attentive, making sure my husband and I received some of the appetizers (we were outside finishing up photos and never made it to any of our cocktail hour as we had hoped). They also made sure we had enough food and drink throughout the evening, (it can be so easy to forget to eat when you are greeting your guests!), and they accomodated our guests’ dietary restrictions with ease. We would recommend 15 Landsdowne Catering to anyone who has a professional catering need, large or small, rain or shine, they can handle it! Thank-you Mia and staff for a wonderful experience!Sent on 12/11/2019

Best Food I've Had at a Wedding
Mia and her crew are phenomenal. From the first email throughout the whole process she was very responsive and happy to accommodate any requests. I have both dairy and gluten allergies and I was beyond thrilled with the options she came up with. The late night snacks of sweet potato fries and mini milkshakes were a hit! The menu was perfect for us and very personal. She wanted to make sure we were happy with every single aspect. We knew from the tasting that the food would be incredible and it didn't disappoint. We have gotten many comments on how delicious the food was. The staff made sure my husband and I were not without food or drink the whole night and the bartenders were great too. I had several guests with food allergies and they were so happy that everything was labeled and that they had options! I've been to a few weddings where I literally couldn't eat anything and I was so happy I could provide options for everyone. Mia was great to work with and I would highly recommend!Sent on 10/28/2019

Mia is fantastic! I would highly recommend her!
I used 15 Landsdowne Catering for my wedding in August. Mia was my go to person for not only the food at my wedding, but the timeline, decor and a handful of other things I didn't even think about. She is amazing! She allowed us to build a completely unique and creative menu that reflected who we are as people. She took the time to get to know us as individuals and together, and that helped make our wedding feel authentically ours. Mia was there to answer all of my texts/emails through the planning process. In addition to that, the food was amazing! We had a stations set up for dinner, in addition to stations and passed hor d'erves for cocktail hour. We got so many compliments from our guests regarding the food, some said it was the best food they've had at a wedding! I would highly recommend Mia and her team for any event! She is a truly talented chef and wonderful person to work with!Sent on 01/18/2019

June 2018 Wedding
I have spent the last year working with Mia Emerson to plan my wedding at the Hunterdon Art Museum. She has been instrumental in every step of the process, from helping us to secure a venue, to planning a delicious menu, to coordinating the event itself, and of course, solving any issues along the way! My husband and I have loved working with her, and we and our guests had an amazing time at our wedding reception.Sent on 01/19/2019
Even with our smaller budget, Mia was able to flawlessly capture our vision for the event and crafted an amazing, upscale bbq menu and cocktail hour. Our guests are still raving about the superb quality of the food and the seamless flow of the event itself. Mia and her team handled all the event set-up and breakdown, in addition to the food and bar service. We were also provided a wonderful day-of-coordinator, Tara, who made sure that we were completely taken care of throughout the night, while expertly managing every aspect of the reception.
I could not recommend 15 Landsdowne highly enough to anyone who wants to host a fun event with amazing food and not have to worry about event planning stress!

With you from the beginning to your grand finale
15 Landsdowne Catering provided our wedding a level of Fall comfort and sophistication. Offering a variety of stations our guests could approach as they pleased, their flexibility and attentiveness ranged from cultural to seasonal, fun to decadent.Sent on 01/18/2019
Mia's thoughtfulness and open minded creativity speak to her exquisite customer service. For a wedding, event or any special occasion, bringing in 15 Landsdowne will offer an extraordinary culinary experience that will "cater" to your expectations.

Highly recommend - great food!
We highly recommend the catering team at 15 Landsdowne! They catered our 150 person wedding this October. From the start, Mia was able to work within our budget and set up phone calls to get to know us as a couple to help us craft the perfect menu. The tasting was easy to set up and we really enjoyed the experience. Tara was our day-of event contact and she didn't miss a single detail. The flow of the event was perfect and we loved every single dish from their team. We received so many compliments from our guests! They loved the beef entree, butternut squash soup, garlic potatoes, and our fall themed dessert table! My husband and I prioritized good food really high on our list for our wedding and the team at 15 Landsdowne exceeded our expectations. Highly recommend!Sent on 11/26/2019
