Chowhound was the first caterer we checked out for our wedding and we were immediately impressed with the food at our tasting. The food at our wedding was outstanding and we received a ton of compliments! Communication with Chef John and Lucretia was timely, they've answered all our questions, and were accommodating when we had guests with restricted diets. We'd recommend them to anyone and would definitely use them again!

Hired Chef John and his team for my wedding! Everything was spectacular! Some of the best food I’ve ever tasted! I hired them within minutes of tasting the food. Communication and professionalism 10/10. Also as the bride, it is a very stressful day in general and the staff really catered to me and my New husband making sure we ate and got what we needed, checking in on us specifically at least 5 times through the night, which was very very appreciated!
