We were delighted by the quality of food, serving staff, and set up for our big family event in July. Glynis came up with a wonderful menu of foods for 65 people that was tasty and made our meat-eaters and vegetarians happy. The mango/sweet potato salad was phenomenal. We enjoyed our firecracker salmon, fun dessert cookies, and veggie platters. I highly recommend Glynis and her staff.

Choosing Catering by Seasons to be our caterer was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Stephanie was our coordinator, and I could not have been more impressed by her professionalism and ability to make our day perfect. We were on a budget, and Stephanie was able to create a delicious menu with everything we wanted within our price range. We were so happy that we were able to give our guests an elegant dinner that was not only budget-friendly but eco-friendly.

On the day of the wedding, Stephanie and her staff went above and beyond to help set up the venue and serve our guests. One waiter even brought my husband and I water on the dance floor because he saw that we hadn't been back to our table in a while. The presentation of the buffet was wonderful, and the staff was very attentive.

Working with Catering by Seasons was so easy, and every time I spoke with Stephanie I was confident that she understood what our ideas were and could make it happen. I highly recommend using them.

What a delight to work with Bob, Marco and the whole staff at Catering by Seasons. This is a totally professional catering firm that will listen to your needs, respect your budget, calm you in every way, and create a magical evening for you and your guests.

Catering by Seasons catered my wedding reception at my home for 100 people. Bob helped me transform my home into a gorgeous venue. The food was not only creative and delicious, it was beautifully presented. Marco treated me like a queen, anticipating my every need. And the cleanup was efficient and totally transparent to me and my guests.

Because this was a second wedding, my fiancé and I wanted to stick to a reasonable budget. Bob fully respected our wishes and delivered a menu, decor and staff that was not only fabulous, but a great value-- competitive with all of the other caterers I spoke with. I will now use Catering by Seasons for smaller gatherings and dinner parties. We'll worth the results delivered and the peace of mind.

I recommend this firm without reservations.

After vetting five companies, we decided on Catering By Seasons (CBS). In the end, CBS' food, attention to detail, and professionalism won us over. So we have no reservations saying that they are clearly one of the best full service caterers in the metro DC area . . . especially for weddings.

Glynis, our representative, worked with us on our pre-wedding journey, presenting menu options at a complimentary tasting (other caterers charged for that), patiently going over linen, dish and glass options, meeting at our home and at the venue numerous times, and communicating with us and other service providers. We relied on CBS staff, especially Glynis, to guide us on details that would complement our vision for our wedding. The process of menu selection and logistics was very flexible and painless. Glynis and the CBS staff totally accommodated our design preferences and dietary requirements, adjusting their standard menu elements to include particular dishes we requested, and they coordinated everything beautifully on the day of the event, even going the extra mile to smooth over mistakes by others.

Most telling was the response of our guests on our wedding day. For example, according to one guest the food was, "…the best I've ever had at a wedding"; the dessert bar and decorated cake (totally in theme) were absolutely stunning and delicious; and the CBS staff treated us and our guests like royalty. Everything was on schedule, and Glynis and staff worked seamlessly with our other vendors.

Thank you for making our wedding so special!

Glynis worked with us. We could have not made the day possible without her. We had a unique situation and she was patient, and worked with us to come up with a solution that worked for everyone. Her staff was very friendly and as the wedding couple we were very well taken care of. Our cocktail hour food was great and she allowed us to bring in our own food ( certain restrictions apply) She checked on us throughout the wedding & we never wanted for anything. She was great & her staff worked hard & did amazing. I would highly recommend her & Catering By Seasons for your event.

Our family felt so well cared for by Catering By Seasons that we have all committed to engage them for ALL future gatherings! SUPERB!

Simply put, Catering by Seasons is the next upcoming best caterer in the area. Not only is their mission inspiring, they surpass expectations on a continual basis. The food is creative, delicious and beautiful. If you have an idea, the event managers will work with you to make it happen. The service is top-notch. The staff that they have is extremely experienced in hospitality and it shows. Coming from a hotel and hospitality background, I know service, and so do they! All the guests from my wedding are saying it was the "wedding of the century". They continue to talk about all the different foods and drinks that were presented. Everyone had their favorite dish. I could not have made a better decision about choosing a catering company.

I cannot say enough great things about working with Glynis at Catering by Seasons, she worked with me every step of the way revising menus, guest counts, seating arrangements ect. up until 2 days before the wedding, and her response was always "no problem it’s your day I’m here to make sure you are happy". Day of the wedding she acted more like a day of coordinator (which was great since i didn’t have one) setting up timing with the DJ, checking in on me, my new husband and our parents to ensure we were happy and having a great time. She made sure we ate and got to taste all the amazing food Chef Kyle prepared.

One thing that was very important to my now husband and I, was that the food was amazing. Since most of our guests were traveling from out of state and spending money on a hotel, travel ect., we wanted to make sure they left the wedding happy. Between the two of us and both sets of parents both friends and family have all commented on how amazing the food was. We went with a station reception which worked perfectly! Our guests loved that they could try everything. Chef Kyle was beyond amazing, he was engaging to our guests working the pasta bar. His food is simply amazing, the salmon was cooked perfectly which isn’t easy to do for a wedding, at our carving station people raved about how tender and amazing our steak was. You will not go wrong with Catering by Seasons, you will be sure to wow your guests and hear amazing feedback in days, weeks, months to come. Make sure you ask for Glynis and chef Kyle – while I’m sure all of their chefs and events managers are great – I of course would go with the best!

Wow- there are not enough positive words to convey how spectacular Bob Sierralta and his team at Catering By Seasons were from the very first phone call. His energy and enthusiasm were contagious! Bob worked closely and respectfully with us to truly capture our personalities, tastes in food, vision for everything from colors on the table to plate ware. Bob stayed true to the budget we set and even made recommendations on other ways we could save money on our Sunday Brunch wedding. Much laughter dotted our ongoing conversations leading right up to the wedding day. We are still receiving feedback from our guests about the phenomenal french toast sticks, oyster shucking and "pasta bar performance" of Chef Kyle- he was truly loved! The entire staff was attentive- even to the youngest of attendees - making certain they had enough of whatever they were melting down about! The day of the wedding, Bob and his team never waivered on their commitment to us and the dream we had for our wedding day- they stayed calm, kept us calm- and made sure everything went smoothly. There was much love and joy in the air on our wedding day and Bob and his team were every much a part of making that happen as were our guests.

I simply cannot recommend Catering by Seasons and Misty Zani highly enough. We did a vegetarian menu of small plates (heavy hors d'oeuvres) for our wedding. Some caterers we tried were not able to be creative enough within those limitations, but Catering by Seasons was excellent. The food was tasty, varied and original. Everyone raved about it, and there were several delicious options for everyone, regardless of their tastes. We had some people with pretty limited eating habits, and others with more sophisticated palates. Everyone complimented the food.

Perhaps even better was the service. Misty and the whole staff treated us like queens from our very first contacts. Planning the menu, doing the tasting, scheduling the walk-through (Misty came into DC from MD in the middle of one our blizzards), and executing the day-- Misty made everything easy and worry-free. We had purchased minimal flowers and decorations to save costs, and the catering staff set everything up so beautifully that there was no sign of cost-cutting. Elegant and lovely.

We didn't have a wedding planner or coordinator, so we left a lot up to them, and they came through with flying colors. We had many special requests-- we wanted some hot beverages served as soon as people arrived; we wanted the bar open at a very specific time; we wanted some passed hors d'oeuvres and others at stations; we wanted to provide our own alcohol and desserts; etc. Misty just said "OK, sounds great, we can do that" to every request we made, from beginning to end.

Add to all this the extremely reasonable price, and I honestly can't imagine a better caterer. Use them; you won't regret it at any step of the process. And for readers who are planning a gay or lesbian wedding, the entire Catering by Seasons staff was extremely supportive about our lesbian wedding-- Misty actually got choked up and really shared in our joy.

Bob and his crew, Catering by Seasons, rescued my wedding!! With 3 weeks left until the special day, a disaster occurred and our catering company was no longer fit to service my wedding. My mother's friend recommended Robert Sierralta of Catering by Season, and the preparations were instantly back on track! Bob took our sad situation very personally and became our biggest advocate. Discussing details with the venue and putting together floor plans and timelines in record time! With such short notice, we were still able to choose our menu items, add a family recipe to the mix, AND have a tasting and tour of their facility!! I instantly felt that Bob was on "my team" and took my concerns to heart. Bob proactively called me every couple of days to check in and discuss details. He truly became the wedding planner I neglected to hire months prior! Bob worked very hard to stay within our existing budget and solidify negotiations with a very wishy-washy site manager at the venue to obtain everything I could have ever wanted at my wedding. He had very creative ideas to make my day unique. Bob suggested a lemonade stand to welcome guests and offer them refreshments prior to the ceremony. And unique "buffet" style luncheon, with multiple round tops of different heights and sizes instead of the institutional long line of rectangular tables. Bob and his crew worked with our specific table décor concept and allowed us to step in and add some detail as they were trying to set up. Bob was visibly present the entire day, overseeing and expediting the reception especially! I am sure I'm forgetting to mention something! Just know that when hiring Catering by Seasons, you have an instant advocate and attentive individual to make your day a dream come true! After not trusting our previous caterer, it was such a relief to be able to seemingly hand-off the details to Bob, who unlike the rest of us, was able to stay calm and confident throughout the entire process! THANKS

Just know that when hiring Catering by Seasons, you have an instant advocate and attentive individual to make your day a dream come true! After not trusting our previous caterer, it was such a relief to be able to seemingly hand-off the details to Bob, who unlike the rest of us, was able to stay calm and confident throughout the entire process!

My daughter has attested to the fact that Bob Sierralta saved us and our collective, last minute sanity in oh-so-many ways. He kept assuring us that all would be well, he was straight forward about what we could do within the budget with which we had previously been working, where we should stretch, and provided us with creative options. The owner of the LaPrima Food, the parent company, checked in with me from time to time to make certain all was well. Even so, they might have succeeded in making four people happy and the day of the wedding could have been a disaster. We were not disappointed, nor were our guests. Everything went as scheduled, the presentation was unique, attractive, and flowed well, and our guests were delighted with the food, which included a family recipe incorporated by the chef. We will certainly recommend Catering For Seasons and Bob Sierralta to friends and local organizations and will call on them ourselves for future events. Delightful and delighted all 'round!

My wedding was catered by Catering by Seasons and I have to say, they did a phenomenal job. My event planner was Stefanie and she was a dream to work with. Although Stefanie was amazing, the other staff that worked with Stefanie deserve just as much of a nod. If you have the chance, request Marco to be your captain or server...his attention to detail is out of this world and he sure knows how to make a client feel special. Other wonderful servers to request would include MC, Juan S. and Jose B....there are many others but those are the names of the standouts at my event. In addition to the excellent staff, the food was INCREDIBLE. The chef, Kyle, created such a delicious menu for us...we were very impressed and all of our guests raved about the food. Thank you Catering by Seasons, you made my wedding day stress free and unforgettable!

Seasons catered a post-wedding reception we hosted for our son and daughter-in-law after their wedding in Scotland. About 100 people attended. Glynis Keith and her staff were amazing! Glynis took care of every detail. She was great at helping to select the perfect menu that was both delicious and beautifully displayed. We received many compliments from our guest on how wonderful the food and the service were. Glynis and her staff were exceptional in their professionalism and were both wonderful and fun to work with.

What a wonderful caterer... Glynis Keith was amazing to work with ... she was able to help us figure out what we didn't know to ask and to help us make decisions. The food was amazing my guests couldn't stop raving. Glynis also went the extra mile to make sure I got my outdoor ceremony on a day of questionable weather, the sun came out just for us... and I am sure Glynis made it happen.
I can't recommend Catering by Seasons enough.
Thank you for your part in our wedding.

My best friends daughter was married recently and I was the wedding coordinator. We used Catering by Seasons as our caterers....(You may also look under LaPrima Catering, but Seasons is their special events moniker).

To say they were a total dream is an understatement!

Like everyone, we were trying to keep to a particular budget, which was a little difficult to meet. But, Seasons worked and worked with us to keep prices down to help us be on budget.

Let me state something with total clarity. First, their prices are right on target and competitive. We felt they were reasonable, yet we had a small budget. Although we had to make some adjustments on a few things, Seasons did NOT sacrifice integrity or professionalism to make it happen. The Matre'd, chef, bartender, servers, and Captain were impeccable! We had to go with a simpler menu than we had started with, but it made absolutely no difference in presentation and taste. Our guests RAVED about the food.

Suffice it to say the reception was a complete success and working with Catering by Seasons was such a breeze. They arrived and set up, we made a few changes to the lay out (no problem) then stood back and let them do their job. They were unbelievable! Set up and take down was lightening fast and nothing was missed.

Thank you Dina, Stephanie, Marco and everyone (unfortunately, I do not have the rest of the staff's member's names) for your amazing work, and I'll say again, especially your integrity and professionalism. These are two things I hold in very, very high regard and find sorely lacking these days.

Catering by Seasons is a company you will want to work with.

I feel so fortunate that a friend recommended La Prima to me. We had a limited budget for our wedding and were concerned about feeding 100+ people without breaking the bank. La Prima allowed us to host an elegant dinner without doing that. Moreover, our guests ended up raving about the food! Misty was incredibly responsive and accommodating throughout the entire planning process and her staff went out of their way to make sure the reception went off without a hitch. I'd not only recommend them, but would use them again for another event!

We really cannot say enough good about Catering By Seasons and the experience we had with their catering services for our wedding this May! Our situation is quite difficult for anyone: we started to plan our wedding in 4 weeks. At the very beginning, I thought it is a “mission impossible” because both of us know nothing about how to get a wedding organized. Thank God Glynis helped us out. She was very very very helpful! We don’t have any wedding planner and she was working as both the caterer and our wedding planner.
From start to finish, they were the picture of friendly professionalism that was clearly lacking with the other companies we'd investigated. We have a fairly small menu but we were treated like their most important client from the beginning. Glynis was flexible with having your own food, especially useful for us since the majority of our guests are Chinese. She helped us finalized the menu and gave a lot of suggestions of how to keep the food delicious and fresh. They also made recommendations for a DJ and flowers that turned out wonderfully. The waiters were gracious and helpful and smoothed out what could have been a very difficult situation. Our wedding is small but very well organized. Everything is so perfect! Glynis is very tentative during the wedding and our guests all told me that it is an unforgettable wedding! I'd also be happy to provide further information or recommendation to anyone at any time. Catering by Seasons is tops! Glynis is the best!

I can't say enough good things about Catering By Seasons/LaPrima. My daughter's wedding posed particular challenges of a remote location as well as a menu based on specific seasonal produce and meats. The chef, Kyle, gets Very High marks for the wonderful food. Several guests with sophisticated palates commented on the excellent quality of the food. The presentation was beautiful. Misty Zani oversaw the event with calm and confidence that helped put the hosts and guests at complete ease. It was wonderful to have staff that we had complete trust in to execute this wonderful life cycle event. Catering By Seasons has my unqualified thanks for making a wonderful event stress free and as enjoyable as I could imagine.

We wanted to have Asian influences in our food and Glynis from Catering by Seasons did a wonderful job providing us with many options. She made the best effort to keep everything within our price range. All the food, including our lovely Peking Duck station, turned out great! Since my fiance and I were planning our entire wedding ourselves, Glynis was also a great resource for advice and reminders for things we just couldn't keep track of.

If we could change anything about our wedding, we would have hired a different caterer. I hate having to write a negative review, but the amount of extra work and frustration we had dealing with Glynis was unacceptable. We had most details for our wedding planned a year in advance, but this was the only vendor we were still making changes and decisions for the week of the wedding. Our first warning sign was the contract. A year before our wedding, we signed the contract, and it included server numbers and curtains for our ceremony. A few months later, Glynis handed us a new contract which was completely different. The server numbers were down, and she claimed that the ceremony curtains were never included in our contract - but the final price was exactly the same as the original contract! The worst part, was not only did she remove the curtains, she tried to convince us to find a different vendor to do them for us! I couldn't believe this. Luckily we saved all of our previous contracts, and was able to prove that the curtains were part of the original budget.

Then came the cake catastrophe. We picked our cake design months before our wedding. It was a simple white cake with gold ribbon, and we already had the cake topper. This seemed easy enough, so Glynis convinced us that we should use their baker. Fast forward to a few weeks before the wedding, and we find out that she "can't find" any ribbon that looks similar to our inspiration pictures. We quickly purchased a few options, and sent them directly to her, since we were running out of time. A week before the wedding she tells us that those ribbons won't work either, and she wants us to make decisions about changing the structure of the cake. We had no idea what our cake was going to turn out to look like.

Glynis is very aware of our frustrations with her, but she just blamed it on me being a "nervous bride." I wish things could have turned out differently, so I could have written a better review.

Catering by Seasons responded with the following comments:

I am so very sorry to learn of your disappointment and that we fell short of your expectations. Your ceremony and reception were lovely, you looked radiant and it was by all accounts a joyous celebration of two beautiful individuals and families. To think that we caused you any frustration or unhappiness on your special day is both professionally and personally devastating. We endeavored to make your wedding a magical and memorable experience and anything less is unacceptable to us as well.

I agree there was confusion with your Pipe and Drape, but it was resolved months in advance of your ceremony. With regard to your cake, while the design was simple, the ribboning was not. The braided gold leather was just not available anywhere in our area. I personally went to many fabric, craft and design stores to find something suitable for you. The two samples you found and had sent to me from overseas arrived the week before your wedding and we were able to work with those to create a cake that matched your vision.

Additionally, though it was unfortunate your wedding planner and day-of coordinator dropped out at a pivotal point in the planning process, I attempted to minimize the impact by facilitating your rehearsal and taking on extra duties to ensure everything ran smoothly and seamlessly.

If there is anything at all I can do for you, I hope you will let me know. I am at your service. Glynis
