Best Impressions Caterer's are absolutely amazing. Not only did they help make sure everything was perfect - the food was amazing. The presentation was gorgeous, and the servers were very professional making sure not to let drinks or food pile up on the tables. We've gotten multiple compliments from guests on how great the food was and the dessert pastry table was exactly what I wanted. I would recommend Best Impressions to anyone that asks and I will probably use them again the future.

Best Impressions was extremely professional, easy to work with, and organized throughout the entire planning process and event. We were fortunate to work with Donald Shives during the process. Donald was very pleasant and created a great family atmosphere. The food and service were absolutely perfect. Several guests talked about how great Donald was with accommodating their food allergies. My husband and I were so comforted to know that Best Impressions would be taking care of our guests. They gave us the best gift we could ask for--- we were able to relax and enjoy our reception knowing that each of our family and friends were taken care of by the "best" Best Impressions team! Thanks Donald and the team!

I highly recommend Best Impressions Catering! My husband and I had our dream wedding and reception at Byron’s South End. Thanks to Donald and the staff at Best Impressions Catering everything was perfect! Donald went above and beyond to make sure we were able to get everything we wanted for our big day. At our first tasting, everything we tried was delicious it difficult to make a decision about the final menu. Donald never rushed us or pushed us to make a decision that we were unsure of and always offered his help and honest opinion – which is so refreshing! The wait and bar staff at our reception were very friendly and wonderful and the food was fantastic! Our guests are still raving about the late-night chicken biscuits Wonderful experience!!! Thank you!

Best Impressions provided catering, staff, and event materials for our wedding and lunch reception at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden. We had an Indian wedding at the garden and had many dietary restrictions (vegetarians, people who were fasting, etc.) and ceremonial needs that had to be sorted through. Adam was our primary point of contact and was great to work with. He helped us identify a menu and event equipment that met what we wanted and our guests and ceremonial requirements - he had a solution to whatever we needed. Our wedding and reception went seamlessly due to the professionalism from Best Impressions – highly recommended!

Days after my wedding and I am still getting calls from guests talking about the amazing quality of food. Best Impressions is an amazing company, who was able to take the needs of a Northern and Southern family, and bring them together in an amazing food dish. I was so impressed with their presentation and the help from their staff. We worked closely with Jenna who did everything she could to make sure that we were getting the best deal and had an amazing time. I am thoroughly impressed with this group and would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone in the Queen City.

Everyone will tell you Best Impressions has the best food and they aren't lying! The food was out of this world and the staff as well. The staff, went out of their way to make sure our day was perfect to include surprising us with a bottle of champaign for our toast, and when one of our guests asked for milk for their little girl they offered to send someone out for it! We also had the opportunity to taste all of our food which was very easy to set up and we got full portions to sample. I'm so glad we did too because we ended up choosing the opposite of everything we originally agreed on. Then at the end of the night not only was all of the left over food waiting for us to take home but two individual meals had been prepared for us to take home and eat that night just in case we were still hungry! Great people, great prices, great location if you are going with Byrons, and wonderful service! Our wedding was perfect and I know it's because our vendors were the best!

Unfortunately, we did not have many options to select with our venue. We could only chose the approved caterer, Best Impressions. Amazingly, they were an ideal choice and provided us with awesome food options for our guest and us. The food and their service was the talk of all our guest. Many people spoke to us about Best Impressions' awesome Maryland Crab Dip as well as their sauteed vegetables. While food and beverages often can be the bulk of your wedding budget, spending the money here was well worth every dime.

Best Impressions is a great caterer, and our guests really enjoyed the food items. We primarily worked with Adam, who was very helpful and flexible throughout the planning process. Overall everything went smoothly with a few snags. The first snag being the quality of the passed hors d'oeuvres served to the wedding party, including the bride and groom, in the holding area before entering the reception. All of the items were meant to be served hot, but a few were cold. We also got reports from a few guests that the quality of service from some of the wait staff was less than desirable. Despite these snags we were happy overall with Best Impressions and would recommend their services to others.
