I am SO glad we went with Bon Appetit for our 9/2/2012 wedding. They are a great value. They set up and tore down our whole reception area, which was so helpful. Jessica, the director, is amazing. She really went above and beyond her duties. She was there the whole time, giving us tips like, "The key is, when people come to congratulate you, don't stand up" so we actually got to eat our meals, and helping make sure the reception stayed on schedule. They also created a custom and delicious vegan menu for us that even our meat-eating friends and family enjoyed! Highly recommended!

Cecilia and Kevin were both great to work with. I met with both of them initially to go over a prospective menu. Admittedly, I had wanted to give them some examples of things I and my husband like and then have them run with it creatively. Really, they sort of just took our examples exactly at face value, so that's what we ended up with (which is fine, since we obviously like those things). They also allowed me to change my mind a few times and email them with new instructions for our appetizers, etc.

Prior to the wedding day, I worked more often with Kevin, who I was able to contact by phone to set up impromptu meetings to look at examples of the china, silverware, and stemware they would provide (they actually didn't ever offer to show me, I had to call and ask). On the wedding day, Cecilia and her two assistants set the tables and passed the hor d'ouvres. Cecilia made sure to deliver some of those delicacies to my husband and me while we were having our photos taken during the cocktail hour, and also made sure a plate of them made it to our sweetheart table. There's no way we were going to miss out on the food we spent so much time obsessing over!

My only complaint is over the dressing of the tables, which really has more to do with the venue coordinator than the catering department. Normally the caterer handles setting out place cards, and sometimes can set up the centerpieces (as it notes on the caterer's portion of this venue's website they can do), but the venue coordinator told me I'd have to do those things myself. In my case, that meant I literally had to do them MYSELF on my wedding day, because I didn't have a wedding planner. My mom sent me home to get ready finally, and when Cecilia showed up at noon to set up for my 3:00 wedding (I guarantee she would have come earlier if I'd been able to speak with her directly instead of having to go through the idiot venue coordinator), my mom showed her a couple of completed tables, and asked her to finish the rest (there weren't very many). Cecilia willingly obliged and thankfully sent my mom home so she could finally get herself ready for her first daughter's wedding.

Overall, I felt the catering was great. Cecilia and Kevin, although at times a bit distracted by their daily duties (they do run a cafeteria at the university where I had my wedding), were both very helpful and accommodating. Aside from that, I love Bon Appetit's socially responsible business practices, and enjoyed all the delicious, locally sourced, and organic food I ate on my wedding day.

Bon Appetit was a wonderful choice for catering! Jessica and her staff are incredibly efficient, helpful, and professional. The food was fantastic! They even were able to cater to a vegan guest by altering their vegetarian option slightly. I would highly recommend Bon Appetit for anyone looking for a caterer.

We had a beautiful sit-down dinner and Amy M, the catering coordinator, was excellent! She went above and beyond. All of our guests raved about the food. (pan seared steak, Asiago chicken, and stuffed portobello mushroom)

We wanted a pretty unique and simple dinner at our wedding and it was semi difficult to get exactly what we wanted because they are such a fancy catering company. They had delicious options but were difficult to work with at times because I didn't want our reception food to be so gourmet. They were perfect for our venue though!

Our coordinator Susan Martinez was awesome, she made sure we had everything we needed from beginning (while planning) to the end (our wedding day). They also made us a beautiful cake at great price. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a good cateror.
