We had our wedding last weekend and haven't stopped getting compliments on the food. Everyone was obsessed with the presentation of the appetizers and how delicious they were. There was plenty to go around and the staff was great and on top of everyone's needs. The main courses were plentiful and filled your entire plate. Also delicious. Then there's the bar not just a table in the corner but a big bar set up (looks like a bar) where the drinks flowed all night with anything you could want. Everyone loved being able to get their go to drink without having to settle for a substitute. I worked with Pete Biondi and he was great. He kept us at a comfortable figure when giving us a proposal and still gave us everything we wanted. We will always use Catering by Christine's for any event going forward.

Crissy, Pete, and staff did an absolutely stunning job at our wedding. They took what seemed like scattered ideas that seemed almost impossible and turned it into everything we were dreaming of. From the planning to the execution, everything was so easy and stress free. The staff was absolutely terrific. They were always smiling and a step ahead of me. The food that was served at the tasting is exactly how it was at the reception. Our guests are still raving about how great the food was. Thank you Crissy, Pete and staff for taking my ideas and making it the best day ever for us.

Our food was amazing! We will forever sing Pete and Christine's praises to friends. Our venue was one with no kitchen or cooking equipment, yet Catering by Christine still set up their own kitchen and cooked everything for our wedding fresh on site. Everything they made was absolutely perfect, and all of our guests were so pleased, as were we. Pete and Christine were so easy to work with from day one. They customized a menu for us, and set up an amazing complimentary tasting for us that has us booking them for our wedding on the spot. They were available for questions throughout the whole planning process, the met with us at our venue, and they took care of set-up - including our centerpieces and our display tables. My husband and I had absolutely nothing to worry about on the day of our wedding because Pete and Christine had it all under control. It was so nice not to have to stress about anything the day of. We even had to add a guest last minute the morning of the wedding, and a quick call to Christine was all that was needed to take care of it. We would recommend them in a heart beat for any wedding or event. They are simply amazing!

My husband and I hired Catering by Christine for our daughters wedding at Lighthouse Point Park after interviewing a few other caterers in the area. From the moment we met Pete we felt at ease knowing that what we envisioned as the most special day of our daughters life and what we wanted for our guests was not a problem for Pete and he assured us over and over that it would be spectacular. The vision was perfect on that day. Everything was just as we planned and Pete made it happen. The only problem being parents of the bride is that we were so busy greeting guests and taking pictures and so excited that we forgot to taste all of the spectacular ourdourves. Our guests made it a point to tell us just how wonderful everything was from the sushi bar to the raw bar. They are still raving about this wedding as being the best wedding they have ever attended. Thanks again Pete for a beautiful presentation.

Catering by Christine is absolutely perfect. They were quick to notice small details that only the best would notice, while continually having great, friendly service. The food was beyond delicious and was so nicely presented. Everything went so smoothly, Pete and Crissy sure know what they are doing. They both were quick to respond to emails and phone calls, even if it was to ease our nervousness. So thankful I picked Catering By Christine to Cater our special day!

From the proposal, tasting and our wedding day everything was extremely personalized to our taste. We were able to choose exactly what we wanted to have served on our big day and everyone was raving about the food at the wedding and continues to rave about it till this day. They were also very flexible on the day of. Due to weather we had to move our ceremony and cocktail hour space and they worked with the venue coordinator after checking in with myself and the groom to make the plan B spaces look beautiful. We also got all the tables, chairs and linens through them and they did a fantastic job setting up and positioning all the tables and chairs to create a great ceremony, cocktail hour and reception space. Beautiful space, great staff, amazing food! For sure recommend it!

These caterers are the best! Pete and Crissy were so responsive to our requests and even returned calls to us while they were on vacation! Now that's service! I cannot say enough good things about them - Price, food quality and service all played a key role and they nailed it! We interviewed so many others and are very picky about who to use - they helped with every detail even ones we couldn't think of - they knew how to help....We even recently hired them to do our company picnic later this summer - over 400 attending!.....

Look no further than Catering by Christine for your wedding! Pete and Crissy made everything so easy. The tasting was a wonderful experience, and from that moment on, we knew we had found our caterer. They helped us create a menu that our guests will never forget! Everyone was raving about the food all night long. Our menu included a spectacular cocktail hour featuring delicious passed hors d'oeuvres, a raw bar, and incredible cheese, antipasto and fruit displays that tasted as good as they looked! They made sure my husband and I always had a little something to nibble on, knowing how often the bride and groom get nothing to eat at their own weddings. And the desserts….to die for! The cake was exactly what I had envisioned. We trusted Catering by Christine with the most important day of our lives, and we have absolutely no regrets. I've already booked them for my mother's 60th birthday party at the request of my entire family!

My wife and I gave our daughter and son-in-law a beautiful weeding day. Catering by Christine was a very big part of the success of that day. Peter Biondi (Christine's husband and partner) told us several times that the catering would be perfect.HE WAS 100% CORRECT!
Catering by Christine took care of everything from the rental of tableware glassware and linens to the final clean-up. Their waitresses, bartenders and chefs were clean cut, professional, courteous, top shelf!
The presentation was spectacular, the food was full flavored and delicious and our drinks were prepared as requested.
Peter was very flexible in the year long planning of this event and readily available for consultation and changes to our menu
Our catering budget came in on schedule. We highly recommend this business and would definitely use them for future needs.

Catering by Christine was better than we could have ever imagined. From the moment we met Pete through the end of reception, Pete and his staff could not have been any better. Compliments from everyone attending on presentation, delicious food, excellent staff and more. Pete assured us all along that we would not have anything to worry about and we didn't - he did it all with our florist, DJ, videographer, etc. We had a huge party and Pete answered every question and concern and made it better! I would recommend Catering by Christine to anyone and everyone looking to cater an event, they can't be beat.

He did great with meeting with our budget and when we asked for things that weren't on his menu he made them and they were fantastic! He was great about meeting with us several times and answering any questions we had. He even did our morning after breakfast and he set up such a beautiful spread with an omelet station and mimosas! Everything about him and his company were great!

My first caterer disappeared and out of the blue Crissy emailed me a few weeks before my wedding to see if i was all set, I ended up meeting with Pete 2 weeks prior to my wedding and we went there to discuss pricing and while there he made us tons of food which was sooo delicious. We then met a week before my wedding at my venue and signed paperwork and paid. They were such a last min sign on and were so flexible since it was last min. I told them my budget and they made up a menu and met it. They also took care of all the rentals for me. It was such a pleasure working with Pete and our guests still talk about how much they loved the food. The presentation was incredible!! Highly recommended from both of us and our guests!! They were such a life saver. I thought i was going to have no food at my wedding but instead it turned out incredible!

My husband I got married at Wickham Park in Manchester, CT.

Catering by Christine is amazing! Peter Biondi was our contact and he really made sure everything was perfect. He fit in everything that we wanted from cocktail hour foods to the specific champagne that I wanted. He really worked on the price for us and was still able to give us the best service we could have asked for.
The staff that they had on hand for our day was amazing as well. Talk about feeling special and being taken care of. I don't know how many people said we would not have time to eat, but this staff made sure there were plates of hor'devours just for us during pictures, they had drinks ready for us ALL THE TIME, and they were so kind and helpful all night. Emma was our main person and she was spectacular! Couldn't thank her enough for taking care of us all night!
The food was phenomenal!!! We had New York Strip, Chicken Piccata, Salmon, and a Vegetarian dish. EVERYONE said the food was GREAT! My cousin the photographer even said that he didn't think he would finish his steak because it was huge, but it was SO good he could not stop eating!!! The portion sizes were amazing! The hor'devours were fantastic! We had stuffed mushrooms (our favorite and my husband doesn't usually eat mushrooms!), bruschetta (the maids of honors' favorite), assorted dumplings (another favorite of ours…SO GOOD!), and fruit kabobs (EVERYONE'S favorite). It took no time at all for those to be gone!

All in all we really could not have asked for a better catering service. They were spectacular and we recommend Catering by Christine to everyone!

The staff that they had on hand for our day was amazing as well. Talk about feeling special and being taken care of. I don't know how many people said we would not have time to eat, but this staff made sure there were plates of hor'devours just for us during pictures, they had drinks ready for us ALL THE TIME, and they were so kind and helpful all night. Emma was our main person and she was spectacular! Couldn't thank her enough for taking care of us all night!
The food was phenomenal!!! We had New York Strip, Chicken Piccata, Salmon, and a Vegetarian dish. EVERYONE said the food was GREAT! My cousin the photographer even said that he didn't think he would finish his steak because it was huge, but it was SO good he could not stop eating!!! The portion sizes were amazing! The hor'devours were fantastic! We had stuffed mushrooms (our favorite and my husband doesn't usually eat mushrooms!), bruschetta (the maids of honors' favorite), assorted dumplings (another favorite of ours…SO GOOD!), and fruit kabobs (EVERYONE'S favorite). It took no time at all for those to be gone!

All in all we really could not have asked for a better catering service. They were spectacular and we recommend Catering by Christine to everyone! Read less

Catering by Christine did everything and more for our wedding! We came to them asking for an outside the box wedding, while still elegant in terms of food! They truly delivered that! We got married in May at Lighthouse Point Park and had a cotton candy machine, popcorn machine, snow cones with liquor, a raw bar, a sushi chef, surf and turf, gelato and cute desserts. They even made a persian fruit display that we requested. Everyone has been raving about the food and the cocktail hour. We wish we could have eaten more of it, but we were busy being a bride and groom. They had someone come over to us and ask if we wanted food all the time and if we were thirsty. They even did a signature cocktail of sangria for us, which tasted great! It was so nice to not have to think about anything that day and see that they had everything under control and just as they said it would be. Pete was easy to work with and such a laid back guy. He listened and tried to truly help create our dream catering. We checked out several catering vendors before decided on Catering by Christine and I am so happy that we chose them!

We loved working with Pete to create our perfect menu. The food was absolutely amazing and we loved that we could choose from a wide variety of foods for both our appetizers and meals.

Day of went perfectly. When the 10 minute rain shower started everything (including some of our handmade displays) had been moved inside for us and at the end of the day everything was packed and ready for us to take home.

Everyone loved the food and service was impeccable.

Crissy and Pete did a fabulous job with the catering for our October wedding! Everything looked absolutely beautiful and all of our guests raved about the food. They were able to come up with a fantastic menu that fit within the budget we had set for catering and they went above and beyond for us.

We got married in September 2013 and worked with Pete mostly. If someone was to ask me if I would recommend this caterer for a wedding I would say no for the reasons following. After we went through the menu we planned on having a mediterranean plate (which was a personal request because it happens to be my favorite food), cheese plate and veggie plate with passed hors' doeurves. It was listed on our invoice but when the day came these things were omitted by the caterer for some reason. We also had listed mason jars for beer which were also missed. Another thing that was missing was cider donuts and apple cider that we requested to be served after dinner. We ended up overlooking these things because we were thankful that the food was good and the flow of the evening went well and that there were no major catastrophies. Another reason I would not recommend this company to anyone is that they did not respond to emails in a timely manner and most of the time the emails were not professional. However, I worked with another caterer for our brunch the next day who were fantastic!!
