Best Impressions did a great job on creating a menu for me. My fiancé and I are big foodies, and all we had to do was suggest to Best Impressions some restaurants that were our favorite, and they were able to create the perfect menu off of that. We had a lot of back and forth, and they were very patient with us. I would definitely recommend them. And the food tastes amazing!

My wedding was recently catered by Best Impressions. From our first meeting to the day of the wedding, we were very taken care of by BI and staff. They were able to pull off everything I asked for and made our wedding extremely memorable. The day-of waitstaff and bartenders did an excellent job and I highly suggest working with them.

Best Impressions managed our food, beverages and rentals and made it so easy! Donald and his team anticipated all our needs and did a wonderful job coming up with a meal that was kosher for our guests if they chose and was just as delicious as you'd find in any high-end restaurant in Charlotte. They had creative options like an ice cream sundae bar and I never once had any doubt things weren't going to go just perfectly with Best Impressions at the helm.

The catering Best Impressions provided for our wedding was simply delicious and incredible. Our guests were raving all night about both the food and service. When we first started looking for a caterer, we were nervous about finding a quality caterer who could accommodate us having a kosher wedding. Adam at Best Impressions spent hours figuring out all the logistics with us, making sure all elements of the catering met the requirements for it be kosher, while also ensuring everything was top notch and delicious. Adam was so professional, flexible, accommodating, and friendly. The entire Best Impressions team was full of rock stars, and we highly recommend them!

Best Impressions is terrific! My wife and I were without want at the reception. Every single waitstaff member knew who we were and seemed to trip over themselves to make us feel special. They had plates of food prepared for us even though it was a buffet which meant we actually got to eat. So many of our friends said we wouldn't get the chance to eat, but not the case, Best Impressions made it easy. Donald was responsive and met all of our needs. Many of our guests felt the food was so good that they actually went to the trouble to email asking us to tell them who we had cater our wedding. You CANNOT go WRONG with Best Impressions.

The best meal of my life! Not only was the food amazing, but the staff was fantastic! My husband and I got to sit back and enjoy our wedding while the staff fixed our plates for us! Several guests said they went through the buffet line 2 or 3 times because they couldn't get enough!

My husband and I wanted to fuse our two cultures together at our wedding and Best Impressions did not disappoint! We told them exactly what we wanted and everything was just right even though they hadn't previously made some of the things we requested. I've been to weddings where the food is TERRIBLE and I did not want our day to be like that. The food was so good at our wedding that people are still talking about it!

Best Impressions ROCKS! Best chicken and waffles ever (and I don't even like chicken and waffles) and fantastic work with a unique dessert (peaches foster) and the expansive liquor, wine, and beer menu. Very flexible and great variety of menu choices (ravioli was great, the plantains were delicious, you gave the bride a taste of Asia - spring rolls! - and we love love the pear/brie purses). Best Impressions made sure that one of the most important parts of any wedding - the food - was impeccable. The tasting was just a taste of the professionalism and delicious cooking we would have on our big day - thank you, also, for the encouraging thumbs up from the servers during my "walk down the aisle" - you guys are awesome!
