We are so happy that Betty Brooklyn catered our wedding! Betty was knowledgeable at every step and pulled together all of our details. She was warm and friendly to work with, and highly organized and responsive during the planning process. Her team made the event completely seamless so that I (the bride) could sit back and enjoy. They exceeded my expectations for helping run a smooth event!

The food was perfect - natural, healthy but delicious, and elegantly served. We highly recommend working with her!

I can't recommend Betty Brooklyn highly enough. From the beginning, Betty has gone above and beyond in her catering services. From our first meeting to our correspondence prior to the wedding to day-of events, Betty was professional, personal and thoughtful. By the end she felt like an important part of our wedding, not just a caterer. She anticipated our needs before they became needs and added generous surprises along the way. Not to mention all the compliments our guests had for the food served at the wedding - delicious, fresh, inspired. Truly, Betty made our wedding day the best it could have been. Many thanks to Betty!

We hired Betty Brooklyn as the caterer and day-of coordinator for our May 2014 wedding at The Green Building. I cannot recommend her highly enough - our day was absolutely perfect and it never would have been possible without her and her staff. Throughout our entire planning process, she and her team were so quick and responsive and really took into consideration every single one of our ideas and requests. We described our general idea and the look and feel we were going for and Betty executed everything even better than I could have ever imagined it. On top of all of that, the food was absolutely amazing and so many of our guests commented that it was the best food they've had at a wedding, not to mention the best wedding they had ever been to! I highly recommend Betty Brooklyn for any event you are planning and can't wait until I can plan another event so we can work with her and her team again!

We just got married at 501 Union. I can't say enough good things about Betty and her talented staff. The food was amazing. The seafood bar was a big hit. One of the 1st two things I heard were awesome food and awesome music.

Butterscotch cake, or butter cream (don't remember, but super tastey)

Almond crusted halibut and the filet were to die for.

About Betty and Sam, they were super patient, even when our requests got unreasonable. They went the extra mile to make sure we were all set and had a good time.

Betty's staff: On point and courteous. We did not know we had a valet for the evening. He made sure all the bridesmaids were happy

I recently had the pleasure of working with Betty and her staff on my March 2014 wedding. From start to finish, Betty was extremely professional, responsive, patient, and easy to work with. My husband and I felt very comfortable working with her and had no doubt that we were in capable hands. She even helped to put my anxious mother's concerns at ease. The day of the wedding, everything went off without a hitch. Betty went above and beyond to be helpful to us and her staff was absolutely lovely. They were professional, engaging, and know the food/drink being served. We received many compliments about their service and of course the food itself! We would not hesitate to work with Betty again... the experience and product was perfect from start to finish!

Do not hesitate one bit to book Betty. She and her staff more than exceeded our expectations on the wedding day, ensuring everything went perfectly as planned. The weather was bad, so some guests started arriving early but that did not throw them off one bit. They were ready to go.The second the ceremony was over the cocktail hour food started immediately being passed out, and there was plenty of it. And not to mention, they immediately brought my husband and I a plate of food to make sure we got some as well. For dinner, we did a buffet and many people remarked the next day how "great" the food was, which I think rarely happens with wedding food. And many people mentioned how they loved that it wasn't typical buffet wedding food. We also had Betty be our day of coordinator and she was great. Her true dedication showed when at the very end of the night (lights are on/band is packing up), Betty was standing there handing out our gifts to the guests (mini pies) even though she did not make them. But she wanted to ensure everyone took them. From start to finish, she was the most important partner we had and we could not have been more pleased! If you want fantastic food, a great partnering in planning and a flawlessly executed wedding---do not hesitate for one second to book her. We could honestly not have been happier!!

This review of Betty Brooklyn's incredible amazingness is LONG OVERDUE--my husband and I got married at the W Loft here in Williamsburg this past January, and WE COULD NOT HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT BETTY.

She is just a joy. She's a fantastic person to work with, as is her entire staff--everyone was absolutely committed to making everything run smoothly with our wedding, and it went off without a hitch. She acted as our day-of coordinator, and I didn't have one droplet of doubt that everything was going to go smoothly because of it. Also? THE FOOD WAS ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS. Everyone loved it---and I mean everyone RAVED about it. Everyone raved about her staff, too, and we heard about a billion times about how nice everyone was and how tasty everything was.

Also, she set up our whole space for us, and it all looked just gorgeous. She's a great communicator, and will just get you all taken care of.

If you are getting married in NYC, go with Betty! She is the best!!

Betty Brooklyn is a total pro. She came recommended by our venue (The Green Building) and we were so happy with our experience. She met with us several times, made us feel attended to and knew what to ask to make us think through the little details we may have otherwise overlooked.

Day of the wedding she completely exceeded our expectations, handling details we didn't expect her to and taking care of things before we got to them. What a huge help on the most stressful day of my life! She even knew where to find an extra extension cable and magically produced ribbon for one of my bridesmaids. It's the little things, seriously. I couldn't recommend her more.

We randomly found Betty Brooklyn while researching caterers in NYC in January 2013. Right away we noticed Betty very responsive and fast with great communication skills. We made an appointment with her to go over what we were looking for. Since we didn’t have a ceremony at our wedding, only a big reception party, we wanted to have a somewhat casual but still festive reception for family and friends. The most important thing for us was the quality of food. Because of our families' distinct backgrounds, we wanted to include everyone including vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, and I myself have food allergies. She had a great suggestion of us to have "hors d'oeuvre" style since we wanted to have Japanese food and American food based on our heritage. People told us to shop around for a caterer but after our meeting, we had a good feeling and decided to go with her without seeing other caterers.

She submitted very a detailed plan and quote including: menu options, beverages, linens, labor as well as the floor plan. Her check list and time tables were very helpful. We revised at least 3 times but she was very patient dealing with our needs.

Our reception was on October 13, 2013 at the Attic Studios in Long Island City. Since we also hired Betty as a day of coordinator as well, she communicated with our photographer, pastry vendor, photo booth vendor and the venue.

Betty and her team were so well organized and they prepared everything so fast! Everybody LOVED the food. We had hors d'oeuvre style dishes as well as a sushi bar, sliders bar, and pasta/salad bar to cover everybody’s needs. Our guests kept telling us how amazing the food was and how friendly her staff was (and still tell us now!) Also, the owner of Attic Studios said that Betty Brooklyn is one of the best vendors to work with. They respect the space and clean up very well too. Needless to say, we highly recommend Betty Brooklyn for your wedding!!

We were so happy when we came across Betty Brooklyn while planning our wedding, considering how hard it is to find quality wedding products and services at reasonable prices in New York.

Within minutes of walking into Betty's offices, I was sold. Our first introductory meeting was casual, professional, extremely helpful, and informative. Betty even had a few samples of her desserts set out (beautifully) for us to try.

Once we talked about our ideas for the wedding, Betty put together a great menu for us with tons of wonderful selections - it was really hard to pick our final options!

In the weeks leading up to the wedding, as stress levels started to run high, Betty was cool and professional, quick to answer any questions we had and extremely helpful during our tasting, which allowed us to sample some of her amazing food and pick out the decor (her suggestions were spot on).

Unfortunately, we were so busy running around on the actual day of our wedding that we didn't get to eat much, but all of our guests raved about the food, especially the wild elk and mini creme brulees.

At the end of the night, Betty's awesome staff even joined us on the dance floor - you could tell that they were really having fun, and that the catering company was well run!

Our experience with Elizabeth and Betty Brooklyn was absolutely amazing from the very start. We wanted food that was fresh, tasty and light. But we were also on a budget... All the other caterers we went to visit had completely pre-set ideas for what they offered- which was usually bland, oversalted, and straight from the freezer. The food that Betty offered was of a completely different caliber- it was restaurant-quality food, extremely simple, but full of flavor. When we first went to visit Betty Brooklyn, we had a very limited idea of what it was we actually wanted, both for the kind of food and the style of the wedding. After speaking with her for an hour, we left inspired and excited with ideas not only for the food, but also for everything in our wedding in general. Elizabeth talked us through a lot of things that were outside of what we were paying for, in a completely humble and helpful manner. And when we got the sample menu choices from her, every single item on it was exactly what we wanted. She was able to figure out the kind of food we wanted when even we weren't able to express it. Betty Brooklyn was also one of the only caterers that was freely willing to work within our budget. As soon as we mentioned our price range, she was completely willing to explain to us where we could cut costs and helped us figure out alternatives, even though she would not be gaining from it. Most importantly, having her as our caterer made planning our entire wedding so much easier. She was extremely organized- on our first visit she gave us brochures and booklets clearly explaining the steps of the process to working out the menu, tastings, contracts, etc. All of these details seem very intimidating, & she was able to spell it out. Since we had a bit of a diy wedding, she constantly checked on us to make sure we had the right quantities, and even made up our day-of schedule. She ended up being much more than a caterer- she was the central figure in our wedding planning!

We can't even begin to describe how amazing Betty Brooklyn was. We were married in August and from the very beginning of our planning the food was one of the most important things for us. We did not want your typical and usually underwhelming wedding fare. We were initially drawn to Betty Brooklyn based on taste. We loved that she uses local, seasonal, and high quality ingredients and that her meals are very farm to table. Her prices were also very reasonable (for wedding caterers!). We ended up going buffet style and could not have been happier with the quantity, quality, and variety of food. Numerous guests have told us that it was the best wedding food they have ever had and we feel the same way. Our absolute favorite was the summer ratatouille- so, so amazing! In addition to the amazing food, Betty Brooklyn was also our day of coordinator (a fantastic service that she offers) and we honestly don't think things would have come together as perfectly and smoothly as they did without her expertise. Betty Brooklyn was professional and efficient and knowing that she was in charge of making sure that everyone was where they needed to be and doing what they needed to be doing kept our stress levels way down! Many of our guests arrived super early (worried about NYC traffic) and Betty Brooklyn handled this so well. Even though we had not ordered passed hors d'oeuvres she had her catering staff walk around with little bites and drinks for the early guests. We enthusiastically recommend Betty Brooklyn to any couple. She is the best!

Betty Brooklyn was so amazing, from the staff to the food to the whole coordination and set up! We received many compliments on the food and the service throughout the night. Elizabeth was also such a pleasure to work with through the whole process. We had met several caterers by the time we found her and our initial meeting with her was so pleasant we knew we had to work with her. And the delicious food obviously as a selling point! She talked us through the many menu choices and advised on what would go well together. She also helped us figure out alcohol and dessert quantities even though we were buying those ourselves. She walked us through the rentals and space set up options...and overall just put us at ease that the event would be wonderful!

The day of she and her staff executed everything perfectly! The food was sooooo great...her staff even made us plates since they knew were were running around visiting with people. And she made a lovely package for us to take home!

Thank you again Elizabeth! We are thrilled we worked with you!

After meeting with and speaking to a number of different caterers in NYC, we decided to hire Elizabeth to cater our wedding at the Green Building. Why? One, the food is excellent, from the pulled pork sliders to the flank steak with chimichurri sauce to the chocolate pecan pie. Two, Elizabeth is a warm, friendly person who listened to our needs. And three, speaking of those needs, she was open to negotiation as we went through different menus to arrive at a price that worked with our budget. We liked her so much that we also hired her to be our day-of wedding coordinator. Her rate was far more reasonable than what our venue charged, and way more reasonable than a wedding planner. She brought the same attention to detail to her work as our coordinator that she'd showed in the nine months leading up to our wedding. Unless someone has been keeping something from us, there wasn't a single hitch at our wedding. People loved the food and the service, and Elizabeth kept everything going right on time. Thanks for everything, Elizabeth!

Elizabeth, what can we say…you and your staff truly nailed it!!! Thank you so much for all the work you put into creating the most incredible day for me and Denise. From the moment we met you, the communication was easy, the listening even better and the taste was an incredible way to get us hooked. You certainly delivered EXACTLY what we envisioned. And you worked hard and took into account our every request (and we know we had many) so, we can’t thank you enough. The food was incredibly delicious. We received rave reviews from all our guests, that night and many weeks after. Aside from the deliciousness, the displays were creative and pleasing to the eye. Your guidance, professionalism and listening helped mold the most magical day we have experienced so far. We could not have had that experience without you and your amazingly pleasant and professional staff.

We also appreciated you taking the time to ask simple yet overlooked questions on our wedding day. Questions like "have you eating anything?" or "would you like something to eat?" Seemingly basic questions, but a true testament to the care taken to address our needs. We would highly recommend Betty Brooklyn to anyone getting married or for any catered event. We certainly will call on you again, no doubt!!

Hiring Betty Brooklin Catering Co. for our wedding was the best decision we made. Elizabeth was the consummate professional. She asked the right questions to help us focus our ideas. She gave us suggestions when we couldn’t decide on our own. She handled the day of from top to bottom with a smile. She was even accommodating and able to think on her feet and problem solve when the venue demanded we remove our tables. Elizabeth came up with the idea to display the food in a different way in order to keep everything running smoothly. We really liked that Elizabeth was the first person we talked to, and she was there at our reception to run everything for us. Above and beyond the clean organization and thoughtful planning, Elizabeth is a real artist. She has talent, not only in making and serving some of the most delicious food I have ever eaten, but she also likes to think outside the box. Our wedding reception was a picnic in the park affair. We had all of our guests sit on handmade blankets on the ground in a park overlooking a river. It was a unique idea, and most of the caterers we talked to were daunted by the challenge of serving food on the ground, picnic style. Elizabeth was excited by the challenge and was the first person to really encouraged our idea. It is not an exaggeration to say that our wedding reception happened because of Elizabeth and Betty Brooklyn Catering Co. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone hosting any kind of event, big or small.

We hired Betty Brooklyn based on my gut feeling for our wedding, and it was one of the best decisions I made. We wanted a casual but elegant night and honed in on a cocktail style reception. I was nervous about having enough food for guests, but with Elizabeth's guidance and expertise we designed a great menu that incorporated my Swedish and my husband's Italian heritage.

The majority of the food we chose was rustic Italian and all of it was delicious. Some of the standouts were: a spicy lobster bisque (made from scratch by Elizabeth that ALL guests raved about), Swedish meatballs with lingonberry gravy, a crostini sampling (highlight was the tomato jam & pecorino cheese crostini as well as a goat cheese and caramelized onions), truffled celery root risotto, homemade lasagna bolognese, poached arctic char, fresh baked chocolate cookies (with milk shooter) and orange-flower scented meringue kisses, just to name a few.

In addition, she created some great specialty cocktail mixers for us: a bellini with fresh peach nectar and an elderflower spritzer, which was so refreshing and light. She also created an Arnold Palmer as a non-alcoholic option that was made with hand squeezed lemonade and fresh brewed tea.

Above all, I loved the personal attention we got from Elizabeth. She was there every step of the way from the initial contact and menu discussion to being present the day of the wedding - ensuring that everything was executed as planned. The servers and bartenders she used were also great - so sweet and accommodating throughout the night.

I would hire Elizabeth again in a heart beat and would recommend her to anyone else. She was wonderful and truly made the night extra special for us (she even packed a "doggie bag" for us to enjoy when we got home).

Betty Brooklyn was amazing! Her prices were among the most affordable of everyone we quoted, yet I can't imagine her service and food being any better. Elizabeth was so thorough and organized in the weeks and months leading up to our wedding. It made us so confident in her ability to help us throw a wonderful wedding without any hiccups, and really helped to reduce our stress! We both love to cook and consider food a hobby, so it was really important to us to provide a great meal. The food was superb! So many of our guests told us how wonderful the food was and continue to rave about it. We are still enjoying all the leftovers she sent us home with. Her staff were attentive and friendly, and everything was just beautiful and professional. Highly recommended!

We could not have asked for a better catering company than Betty Brooklyn for our wedding. We had what many in the NYC area would probably consider a small budget, and had a lot of trouble early on finding someone to work with who was affordable but who wasn't going to leave our guests hungry! We had envisioned a less traditional menu, with more tapas-style service and variety than your traditional salad/entree/dessert style. Elizabeth and her team had so many options for us to choose from that it was actually difficult to make our final menu! From the start and all the way through the process Elizabeth was so professional, prompt, and quick to answer any questions we had. And the food was AMAZING. We've had so many of our guests tell us how delicious everything was, and how much it was unlike traditional "wedding" food. We would recommended Betty Brooklyn to anyone looking for a caterer for their wedding - trust us, it will take a HUGE weight off your shoulders!!

Betty Brooklyn was an absolute dream to work with. She was the perfect combination of totally organized and totally relaxed -- nothing slipped by her, and yet she never made us feel stressed about any of it. And the food!! Many, many people came up to us during dinner to tell us it was by far the best wedding food they'd ever had, and a few friends went on to request her card for their weddings! The meat and veggies were outstanding and her staff was absolutely lovely. And she sent us off at the end of the night with leftovers and a tote bag! It was perfect. I could not recommend her more highly!

We wanted a simple and elegant wedding and reception for 150 people but didn’t know where to start. We knew that we wanted a main focus to be on the food- we wanted our guests to enjoy the event. Elizabeth of Betty Brooklyn, our caterer, helped make this happen. The food was delicious; her advice on food and rentals was spot on; and the staff was personable and professional. Thank you Elizabeth! You guided us through our specific needs and desires: seasonal vegetables, vegetarian options, a nut allergy, and I’m sure more. Elizabeth’s guidance was practical, budget aware, and realistic- focusing the efforts on the parts that were important to us. Our experience with Betty Brooklyn was terrific- we’ve already recommended her to other people.

I simply can't recommend Betty Brooklyn enough. She is courteous, prompt, organized and professional. We were in frequent contact with her in the months before our wedding about all kinds of things, and whenever we had to adjust the guest list, or asked about menu items or price checked something, she always got back to us as soon as possible. Her staff worked well with the venue, and were friendly and attentive during the event, making sure everyone got appetizers and refilled what needed to be refilled.

Elizabeth will work with you to keep things under-budget, and was more affordable than any other caterer we talked to. Of course, none of that would matter if the food wasn't up to snuff, and I am happy to tell you that everything they served was delicious. Seriously, order the chipotle macaroni and cheese. I am tempted to throw a one-year anniversary party and have her cater it just so I can have it again. The biscuits, fried chicken and salad were as flavorful as anything we've ever gotten from any New York restaurants. (She offers a variety of meal options; we went with a picnic theme.) The cake was also as good as anything you'd get from Magnolia, and she also offered fruit and other healthy side-options. Also, do yourself another favor and get the truffle popcorn. Words won't do it justice, just trust us.

Overall, Betty Brooklyn is great to work with, and delivers exceptional quality and service. Highly recommended!

Hiring Elizabeth was probably be best decision we made when we started wedding planning. First of all - the food - oh the food. My husband and I joke that our only regret at the wedding is that we didn't eat more. All of our guests raved about the food - the sautéed summer squash and chipotle mac and cheese were the clear favorites with many of our guests heading back up to the buffet for seconds. I could go on all day about the quality of the food. Everything from the lemonade and passed apps to our ice cream sundae bar was handled beautifully by Elizabeth and her courteous staff.

Going back to my initial statement, Elizabeth was nothing but a job to work with. She was always responsive to emails and questions with no detail being too small - she even got down on hands and knees to look for electrical sockets at our non-traditional venue. She worked with our budget and even helped suggest ways to keep costs down. I wish I could throw another party just so I could work with her again and eat more mac and cheese.

Thank you, Elizabeth! You truly helped make our day wonderful and unforgettable.

Not only was BettyBrooklyn's food amazing, the team was awesome on the day of. I hear it's good luck to have it rain on your wedding day, so that's the good news. The bad news was that we had to move our outdoor ceremony indoors, into the very room that lunch was meant to be served. As I watched the rain drops falling down that morning, I tried to breath as I realized their implications. I walked over to the venue, ready with ideas for how to make this work. To my surprise, the team had arranged the eating area into an area where we could now perform the ceremony! And they moved the pre-lunch drinks to an adjoining room, giving them the 30 minutes to then turn the ceremony room into the lunch room. I was so relieved. They did everything, there was little for me to do that morning expect get ready, breath deeply, and enjoy my wedding day! Thank you so much for your calmness, professionalism, and quick thinking!

LOOK NO FURTHER, you're search for the perfect caterer has ended- book Betty Brooklyn.

ELIZABETH AND HER TEAM WERE ABSOLUTLEY WONDERFUL. From our first phone conversation to the end of the wedding, Elizabeth was amazing. Her professionalism, flexibility, organization, and her attention to detail put our minds at ease. With everything that goes into a wedding, having absolute confidence in our caterer was a huge weight off our shoulders.

THE FOOD WAS AWESOME! So many guests told me this was the best wedding food they ever had. And though people told me brides don't eat much at the wedding, after the tasting I vowed not to let that happen to me. We ate well.

WE HAD A BEAUTIFUL WEDDING. And Betty Brooklyn was a big reason why. On the day of, she was calm, organized, and wonderfully coordinated. Her team worked seamlessly to make sure our experience and the experience of our guests was extraordinary.

Where do I start.
From the first meeting we both knew that Betty Brooklyn was the "Gal" for us.
She listened and advised.

She was available at all times to answer any questions and remained calm even when I was asking for the third time.
We where a demanding gang of Bridezillas, but Betty was charming and professional throughout.

The food was magnificent and enjoyed by all.
Her staff helpful and plentiful.
The clean up a dream.

Our very special day was really made memorable by choosing Betty Brooklyn
I would recommend her to all,
And to Betty and her staff we would like to say a real heart felt
THANK YOU,

We were so pleased with Betty Brooklyn. Everything was excellent -- from Elizabeth's communication and professionalism to the delicious food that people could not stop talking about.

We opted for drop off service for our event and Elizabeth did a great job coming up with a menu for us that would work for the buffet/self-serve style. She was great about making suggestions and changes until we were completely satisfied with the selections. The tasting that she hosted was awesome. We booked and confirmed before we even left the table!
She also helped us figure out what we would need in terms of dishes, linens, tables, etc.

Her set-up on our wedding day was quick, professional and seamless. And the food was a HUGE hit. We did not stop hearing about the mini roast beef sandwiches, the mini chicken tostadas, and the tortellini salad. And people are still commenting, one week later, about the mini cupcakes. Literally, everyone I talk to about our wedding day mentions the cupcakes.

Use Betty Brooklyn for your event! You will not be disappointed.

Betty Brooklyn exceeded all of our expectations in every aspect. She was professional, responsive, insightful and a great chef to say the least. We couldn't have asked for a more reliable and pleasent person to work with.

We had 137 people from all over the world with different tastes and everyone loved it! Literally, everyone. Betty Brooklyn will work with you to customize your menu and isn't afraid to try new things. In short the food was wonderful. The bar people, waiters and servers were delightful and professional.

We highly recommended Betty Brooklyn!

From the first email inquiry to the final congratulations email we received the day after the wedding, Elizabeth was incredible! She has an incredible talent not only for creating delicious food, but her organization and thoroughness are impeccable. Her responsiveness and flexibility made working with her a complete breeze. When I had to stop eating gluten only a few months before the wedding, Elizabeth rolled with it and not only made some of our wedding pies gluten-free, but she also made me special gluten free bread!

On to the best part, the food! We did an incredible tasting with Elizabeth that far surpassed my expectations, and after tasting her food, we knew we had to work with her. Her braised short ribs are heavenly, and a full month later I am still getting reminiscing text messages from friends about her Gorgonzola and Carmelized Onion Tart - it.is.insane. My father, quite the food snob, said the Haricot Verts with Shallots were the best he'd ever had. Top that :) Lastly, I have to mention the pies that Elizabeth makes. They are so wonderfully fresh and flavorful while having an incredible decadence that is extremely satisfying. Not to mention, everyone loved pies in lieu of wedding cake!

Her "get it done" attitude has an amazing way of taking all of the weight off your shoulders, and we felt extremely comfortable putting ourselves and our loved ones in her hands. This attitude also exists in Elizabeth's staff. All of the staff were super helpful and kept things running smoothly. Great service was really important to us, and Elizabeth's team did not disappoint.

Thanks so much to Elizabeth and Betty Brooklyn for making our day one we'll never forget!

We hired Betty Brooklyn (Elizabeth) to cater our October 2011 Wedding and were so happy that we did. The food was wonderful. Elizabeth really emphasizes fresh ingredients and created a wonderful menu for us. She helped us create a vegetarian meal that pleased even those friends who eat meat all the time. We got so many compliments on the food. I also was thoroughly impressed with the great catering staff. Elizabeth is so organized and was wonderfully accomodating when our numbers changed coming into the last two months before the wedding. (On the day of the wedding her staff packed us two to-go meals as she rightly anticipated that we would not get to taste everything. Betty Brooklyn was a pleasure to work with and I hope that I get the chance to work with Elizabeth again in the future.

Given the extremely limited time frame in which BettyBrooklyn organized the catering for our wedding--we contacted her a month and a half before the wedding!--the exceptional quality of each aspect of her service was that much more remarkable and appreciated. Elizabeth was very professional: taking the time to answer our many questions, providing detailed breakdowns of costs, meeting at the venue and being flexible about its limitations, and giving us an incredible list of food options, each more delicious sounding than the last. She was also warm and easy to work with. We were never made to feel that putting our wedding together in so little time was an issue. She really listened to what we hoping for in our wedding food, and encouraged us as we frantically put together our wedding, which at least half a dozen guests said was "the best wedding we'd ever been to". The incredible quality of her food--really, the best food I've had at any wedding (and many guests said the same): if I had ordered our dinners at an upscale Brooklyn restaurant, I would have been thrilled!--and the professionalism of her staff had so much to do with this. I had high hopes for our wedding, and BettyBrooklyn exceeded all of them. Anyone who uses her services will be so glad they did so.

We are so happy with Elizabeth and her entire staff and everything they did at our wedding this weekend. From her very first email she was very professional and accommodating and sent a beautiful menu to us that hooked us in. She conducted a great tasting and responded to our desires and suggestions, listening to everything and incorporating our personalities and our story into the menu, with attention to local and seasonal foods. Our wedding night was the best night ever and everyone loved the food, there was plenty and people loved it. I appreciate that she and her staff had such concern for the beauty and presentation of things- they had a sense of artful placement that worked with our aesthetic and it looked and tasted beautiful. Our guests raved that everything was great! The whole team worked in sync like an efficient machine. They also did little things such as making to-go containers for my husband and I and bringing plates to my elderly grandparents. Their professionalism exceeded that of any wedding I have been to. They even made a beautiful and tasteful cake topper when I forgot mine and they printed menus that looked lovely. I honestly have no complaints whatsoever and am so happy with my decision. I think this company's strength is their ability to really customize things for each customer. Also the value and price was very reasonable and affordable and there was so much great and delicious food, unlike a typical cliche wedding of overcooked food, this was fresh and wonderful.

Elizabeth (Betty Brooklyn) catered our April 2013 wedding. The food was delicious and the service was professional and smooth. We got so many compliments on the food. Elizabeth's food is creative and simple but not boring, and she really understood our vision of a seasonal, vegetable-heavy family style dinner.

Elizabeth was also really helpful in laying out all of our options for the menu and identifying areas we could cut costs without compromising the dinner. She is very organized and from the start we had total confidence that she could execute everything. She was responsive to emails which was especially nice as we were deep into wedding planning. She is very clear about what she needs to deliver quality service and where she is more flexible. On one issue that we felt strongly about, she was ultimately able to accommodate us, which we very much appreciated. She also graciously accommodated some last minute dietary restriction food requests and made one of our favorite cakes as a wedding cake.

Finally, we appreciated her attention to detail. She packed up two boxes of food for us and a cake for us to take at the end of the night. After not getting to eat much during dinner due to chatting and excitement, it was so nice to be able to enjoy the delicious food at the hotel.
