I knew I wanted to use A Silverware Affair for our catering the moment I called. They took our info and immediately sent customized options based on our conversation. They worked with me and took my many many phone calls with professionalism and grace. They arrived early and had everything in place long before the guests arrived. They were flexible even during the event with special requests. The food was stellar! People are still talking about it. If you want a truly memorable experience, and GREAT food you just cant call anyone else.

We couldn't have done it any better! The food and bartending services were wonderful. Everyone raved about the brisket, mac & cheese tartlets, and the fried pickles. The wine/beer bar was well-stocked with what we'd requested and at a very reasonable price!

It was a joy and privilege to work with the Silverware Affair for our wedding day. I actually met with the company only once before the wedding (in person), because I was coordinating the event long distance, from another city. The staff and team at the Silverware Affair were exceedingly helpful and great at communication. Any questions I had they were more than happy to answer. They were also super helpful and accommodating. They gave me flexibility to adjust and tweak the menus to my husband and my liking and their food was to die for. The icing on top was that their food display was absolutely gorgeous. I didn't have to worry one bit about decorating the foodline because they made it gorgeous. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a catering service!!! They also helped us find our FABULOUS DJ!!! If you need amazing food for a great price look no further!

They did a WONDERFUL job with our food. Kaitlyn especially helped us envision our menu to be exactly what we wanted within our budget. The also helped us with other rentals to make our day easier. The only downside with the company is there are no tastings which is very intimidating for a bride. I will say everyone at our wedding raved about our food and how great it was we are very pleased with their service and would recommend it to any bride looking for a delicious menu and stress free day, because they do it all !

A silverware affair did a great job for our wedding! I was planning long distance, and their staff was very willing to work with me and even set up a special tasting for us on the weekend (even though it was a holiday weekend) since it was when my husband and I would be in town. On the day of the wedding, their staff and set up went seamlessly, and the food was delicious and very high quality. We had multiple compliments on how good the food was. Additionally, they work hard to make sure their decor matches your wedding theme- I had a rustic vintage theme and they were able to make the buffet and buffet tables fit right in. They were great!

I used this vendor for appetizers only for my wedding. While they did respond to my emails quickly, the main receptionist was very rude. Additionally, before I signed the contract, I told them my max price per person, later I adjusted the head count from 190 to 170 and removed one of the appetizer items and they said "It would be the same price" because the reduced head count decreased the discount per item. I still agreed to sign the contract, which includes a space for tip, additionally the email mentions tipping and that industry standard tipping is 20%, we tipped before the service was performed, which we should not have done. The contract also states that you can revise the head count up to 21 days before your event, I called 22 days before the event to decrease the head count by 30, the receptionist told me "We DO NOT do head count decreases. Sorry, this is not an option, you are legally bound by the contract". I then spoke with the manager who also told me they would not decrease the head count. I explained that the contract said 22 days, she said it was only for headcount increases and again I already paid and was legally bound by the contract. The food was ready by the time they promised however the scallops and bacon were undercooked. Morale: I would not recommend them or use them again.

A Silverware Affair responded with the following comments:

We welcome this client to contact us to discuss and resolve this. This was not an event that we catered. This was a small pick-up order of 4 hors d’oeuvres. We have had no communication with the client since the small pick-up order over 2 months ago and this is the first we have heard about any dissatisfaction since we sent our follow up email following the order. Per our contracts, clients assume all liability with regard to pick orders as we do not have professional staff to handle the foods as we do in 99.5% of our events. We recommended strongly to the client to pick up the foods at 4 p.m. which was closer to her event. However, this recommendation was declined and the client picked up the hors d’oeuvres at 12 p.m. hours before her event. In an email dated Aug 28, the client stated "she was hosting an event" and checked “corporate event” on our quote form. This clearly shows the client was not being truthful if she now states this was a wedding as we were never told it was a wedding. Additionally, the client did leave a client determined gratuity but it was not 20% as misrepresented in this review. Our contract clearly states our policy which we will include for you: "Customer agrees that if the actual number of guests is less than the Guaranteed Number of guests entered above, Customer will still be charged for the Guaranteed Number." Additionally on page one of our contracts in large bold letters it says GUARANTEED NUMBER OF GUESTS so the client clearly understands this is the number they are guaranteeing as the price per person is determined by the number of guests. The client did sign and agree to this contract and therefore was aware of our policy. Numerous staff members diligently tried to explain this to the client and it was not received by the client. We are a full service catering company and this is not representative of our staff or our work. We wish the client the best.

A Silverware Affair (ASA) was great to work with!! I was impressed by them from the beginning. They were extremely responsive and helped me develop a delicious menu, which included items they had not created before. My husband and I met studying abroad in Brussels, Belgium and we wanted Belgian-style fries and waffles as a late night snack. At our tasting, ASA had these items to sample (they had flown in the pearl sugar for the waffles from California just for our tasting and had the fries in a paper cone, just like in Belgium!) and I must say, they nailed it! The presentation of all the food at our reception was beautiful, and everything was so delicious! Many guests went for seconds! The only things I weren't fully satisfied with were with the bartenders (weren't making the signature drink correctly- one forgot the whiskey, and they weren't always present, so guests were making drinks themselves) and that I didn't have my to-go plate for after the reception (which I had specified in the contract). Those are very minor things and I understand details get lost in translation. Overall I recommend them and would definitely use them again! I was very pleased with them and enjoyed working with them!
