I have never been more pleased with a caterer. Food, and service were top notch. I will recommend them to anyone looking for an awesome event. Best part is they cost less, and provided more than their competition. Use this vendor!!!

Delicious!!! What a fantastic caterer to work with. Steve was our head chef and made the reception an amazing experience. Throughout the night and days afterward, we kept hearing comment after comment about how delicious the food was. Of course we knew that because we had the wonderful tasting ahead of time where they prepared our entire menu and served us course after course. They were open to all of our suggestions and made great recommendations. Also, working with Kelli through the contract process was easy. We would highly recommend Catering by Design because they are professional, the food is wonderful, and they made the entire experience a delight.

We are planning a wedding from start to finish in less than 100 days and on a tight budget. After several meetings with other caterers, we were afraid we were going to have to provide the food ourselves! Then our venue recommended we check with Catering By Design - what a breath of fresh air! They listened to what we wanted and planned a menu that was perfect - and even worked with us to get it within our budget by eliminating things that weren't as important to us. They invited us in for a complimentary tasting (none of the others had) and if we weren't sold before, that definitely did it! Not only did they treat us like royalty while we were there for the tasting, the food was absolutely delicious! We had a couple of changes to our plan based on the tasting, and before I made it back to my office, they had the revised contract to us. The wedding is still 60 days out, but I am confident, especially after looking at these reviews, that they will not disappoint!

Working with Jen, at Catering By Design was an absolute pleasure. She is GREAT at her job and VERY accommodating. We had a special situation, where we were planning a multicultural wedding and we needed to provide food for people from several different continents in the WORLD. With Several different tastes. Jen made everything EASY for us! The food was ABSOLUTELY amazing and she was willing to accommodate our budget big time. THANK YOU!

Thank you Catering by Design for the delicious food! We had no complaints from anybody! Everything was good, service was excellent and everything seemed to go just like we planned! They even came in with a beautiful snack plate for the bridal party right before everything started as they were getting pretty hungry! Thanks for being so accommodating!

Where do I begin with Catering by Design! First of all, they really saved the day for me when I first began planning my wedding...I had a previous caterer before them that really wasn't communicating and just wasn't a great fit. I happened to find Catering by Design on a whim, saw they had wonderful reviews, and wanted to give them a try. When we went in for the tasting, we were absolutely blown away by how delicious the food was, and knew they had to be our caterer. We worked with Kelli leading up to the day, who was absolutely wonderful and made the whole process easy and stress free. Cut to the big day this past weekend, and Steven and the whole on-site crew were rockstars - they made sure everyone was comfortable and taken care of, not to mention keeping both myself and my husband fed as well (they even made us a whole plate of appetizers since we didn't get to eat much during the day/cocktail hour). Even when our speaker system went out for the music, they saved the day by bringing in their own stereo so we could dance! No hesitation, this group is the best group of people we've worked with throughout the entire wedding process, and are so glad we found them! With spectacular service, caring staff, AMAZING food and prices that won't break the bank, I highly recommend Catering by Design for any event!

We absolutely loved Catering By Design! They prepared such yummy food, everyone loved it!

Our reception was about 78 guests and we did buffet style. Let me start by saying the tasting was AMAZING! I have heard from other friends they have had to pay for a tasting, CBD is complimentary before you even sign a contract, so nice! They served us everything that would be served for the wedding and even boxed up the leftovers for us to take! They were so flexible on the menu, don't think that what they have posted is all they do, they will combine things to make it what you want.

We had hor d'ourves served at the cocktail hour. Cheese and crackers and hot crab-cake hushpuppies! Enjoy these at your tasting b/c on your wedding day you probably wont get any b/c they go fast!

For the buffet we had a salad, roasted veggies, roasted potatoes, chicken (stuffed with cheese mushrooms and sun dried tomatoes), a beef tenderloin for the carving station and of course rolls! My wedding was in October, it is December and people are still talking about that chicken!

CBD also did our wine and beer service and they were amazing! They had a great selection for both and even let me bring in my own prosecco.

The staff was amazing, so helpful and accommodating. We worked with Jen and Kelli leading up to the event. They were amazing. I made a few changes on numbers and beer and wine requests and they were great. I thought I was being a pain but they told me I was fine, I was the bride, they were here for me! I loved that!

I forgot to mention how affordable I think they are especially for the quality of food. I got pricing from 3-4 other caterers and would have had to compromise what I wanted in order for it to be in budget (mainly no carving station). They really work with you to get you what you want and stay in your budget!

Loved them, you wont be disappointed!
