The whole team at Catering By Design was great - and Steven managed everything on site perfectly. The food was delicious and they even brought us out appetizers as we were taking pictures! Great service, great food.

My wife and I did not have a large budget for catering. We told them our number, and they made us feel like we had given them a number twice as large. The amount of food we received was impressive, and the service was even more remarkable. Their staff were helpful, happy, friendly, and thoughtful. We were extremely pleased with the overall product.

The entire team with Catering By Design (most importantly Jenn and Steven) were essential the stress free wedding reception that we had. They were not only priced well but provided excellent service leading up to the wedding and on the day of. The food (for the foodie's my husband and I are) was also on point. I would definitely recommend them as a service for any catering needs.

I cannot say enough things about Catering by Design. They were a breeze to work with and always made me feel like I was their most important client.

I worked with Amanda, who was so nice and professional throughout all of our meetings. We made several changes to our menu (a few at the last minute!) and she took it all in stride. She always sent us an updated invoice very quickly after we made any changes. I must have asked her a million questions in the last month before the wedding and she answered every one!

They also coordinated our linen/flatware/silverware rental using CE rentals, which was great. You just show up, pick the fabric swatches you want, and that's it! Easy peasy.

The service was great. They brought food and drinks to my husband and I all night, recognizing how busy we were. We didn't even have to go through the buffet line, they brought a plate to us! The food was great, tasted just as good as at our tastings. We brought in our own alcohol, which they did not charge us for. We had to bring it to the venue ourselves (no big deal) but their bartenders served it up for us with no issues. At the end of the night, they packaged up the leftovers and sent them home with family and friends. Would definitely recommend them to any bride and groom!

I can't begin to tell you how fantastic Catering By Design is. We had a Luau themed reception and the food was PERFECT! We had everything from chicken and pineapple kabobs to shrimp cocktail to a fruit skewer tree with the best creme I have ever tasted.Oh and do not get me started on the pork lion with the pineapple salsa relish and chicken with the Vanilla sauce, Hawaiian rolls, well I think you get the point.Just perfect. The professionalism and hard work of the staff topped it off. Catering By Design will be our first and only choice for any and all events. Thank you again for a job well done!

I can't say enough good things about this caterer! We had several really good tastings, but they won us over with their flavorful food, professionalism, and decor. Our wedding coordinator, Stuart, was absolutely fantastic. He always responded quickly to emails and was responsive to our every need. He helped us with rentals and the alcohol order. At the wedding, CBD set everything up quickly and efficiently, and it looked fabulous. All of the staff were extremely professional and responsive to our every need. I highly recommend them.

Catering by Design were amazing for our wedding! They were VERY affordable - the lowest price among all the caterers we looked into. In addition, the food was awesome! Several guests came up to us and commented on how good the food was. The bartender was very quick and professional, as was the rest of the waitstaff. They were very attentive to not only the bride and groom but also to all of our guests. Throw in a free cake cutting service and that seals the deal! While there was a slight problem with our cake (not made by them), they were able to make the best of the situation to keep things running smoothly and none of the guests were any wiser. They also arranged all rentals (linens, etc) and took care of all deliveries during setup. They made everything so easy; we would highly recommend them for anyone else looking for a caterer.

My experience with Catering by Design was top notch! Planning with Jennifer was effortless. She is a true professional who knows her business, asking questions I never thought about and really making sure she understood my vision.

On the day of the wedding, the food was amazing! Even more than that though, the service was so far above and beyond my expectations! The staff was incredibly responsive, helpful, supportive and attentive! When one of my guests accidentally spilled an entire glass of red wine down the front of my gown, it was a member of the staff who knew just what to do! She whisked me down to the end of the hall, where my bridal party stood around me creating a private little area. She gave me a chair and went to work with white wine removing the red wine stain (who knew!?). While she was doing that, other members of the staff took the moment to bring me a lovely plate of food and something to drink, recognizing that I was completely inundated and overwhelmed with the guests that had enthusiastically swarmed me up until that point, making it impossible for me to get food (or air!). :) This was just one example of my terrific experiences with Catering By Design. It is this kind of attentiveness that doesn't show up in any contract and while every bride hopes for it, it all too often is not always part of the experience.

Family and friends are still marveling about the incredible service and food. I would recommend Catering by Design without reservation to anyone!
