Better Events Catering did an amazing job with our wedding. First and foremost, the food was AMAZING! All of our guests were raving about the Hors d'oeuvres and dinner. They have an incredible selection, and make it easy to add on other food. The staff at the wedding was courteous and attentive. Overall, BEC is hard to beat!

Roberto was so great to work with. His philosophy of keeping his company smaller so he can do things the right way and ensure quality was appreciated. He was so easy to work with and our guests CLEANED THEIR PLATES at the reception!

Better Events Catering provided the food and tables for our daughter's wedding reception. The food was delicious and the staff was very professional. Roberto Torres, the manager, was very flexible, allowing our reception to be extended as the party was still in full swing when it should have ended. He also set up the tables a day early so that we could decorate the hall on Friday instead of Saturday morning which was a tremendous help to us. Everyone commented on how delicious the food was and we were very pleased with the overall service. I highly recommend this catering company.

Better Events did a beautiful job setting up our wedding at Stone Manor Country Club in Middletown, MD. Better Events was recommended to us by my cousin who had a good experience with them at his wedding. We did not use Better Events for our food since wanted a certain type of food, so we used them for flatware, servers and bar setup. Roberto is very professional and knows what he is doing. We went to his office several times to meet with him and go over everything. He does offer some deals if you sign before a certain date. Otherwise, his prices are fairly set in stone. You do get charged per server per hour so be aware of that - a larger wedding that is longer will cost significantly more. We had estimated 175 at our first meeting but ended up having 240 people and the price jumped a large amount. Obviously, this makes sense but just be prepared for that if that happens.

At the wedding, the servers were excellent, very professional and constantly refilling glasses. The bar was set up wonderfully and the bartenders I heard were very professional and made great drinks. Better Events arrived on time and set up the cocktail hour first and then the tent. The cocktail hour looked great, we had food passed around and served and they did everything just like we wanted. Roberto worked great with our food caterer, as well. When I walked into the tent, I was really blown away by how beautiful the tables looked - the plates and napkins were beautifully laid out and the tent looked stunning.

I had purchased seven sparkly sequin chevron runners that I spent a lot of money on and wanted them to be used for the tables, cake table or dessert table, but they only used 3 of them for some reason, using the plain ones I supplied as well, instead. I did specify that all the sequin runners be used and was sad they were not.

Also, at times it is hard to reach Roberto via email. I think calling is the best way to reach him because he often does not reply to emails.

This was our second event to be catered by Better Events. Once again we were so pleased with the service and quality provided by Roberto Torres and his capable staff. I was able to turn over all the details and enjoy the time spent with family and friends.

Roberto's profession was exceptional. Everything was superb and all of our guests raved about the quality of the food as well as the set up...and they are tough critics, some restaurant owners themselves.

Roberto catered our event all the way out in Charlotteville, VA without charging us any extra for the trip. In addition he also offered to wash and set up all of our favors, which were wine glasses, all with personalized wine charms... quite the tedious task.

Roberto is a pure delight with whom to work. If you are considering Better Events we would tell you to stop looking and hire them. You cannot go wrong. Further, they gave us the best price in town.

My wedding was at the Newton White Mansion on Sunday March 30, 2014. I was planning to have an outside ceremony but I had rain and snow on my wedding so everything had to be inside. Roberto and his team worked hard to flip the atruim after the ceremony for the reception. The food was delicious and every guest raved about the food and the service, and the wedding was beautiful! Simply elegant and beautiful. . Roberto is very confident and he knows what he is doing. He has been in the wedding business for about 20 years and he knows his craft. Thank you Roberto for making my wedding day very memorable.
