Wait staff lacked professionalism, looked more like cafeteria workers. Wedding guests limited on food in buffet lines, which was quite embarrassing. Company assured us it would provide cake cutter, instead provided a butcher knife which in turn butchered our cake cutting photo. The food was okay: the baked chicken was so-so, we hear the fried chicken was amazing, however the crab dip and sweet potatoes were strange tasting.

Charm City Catering provided the food for my wedding. The food was delicious. The servers were professional and pleasant. If you need a coordinator just ask for Jessica.

We were completely satisfied with Charm City Catering for our recent wedding. The food was delicious, the service was outstanding, and the overall value was excellent! If that were not enough, there was Jessica, who runs the business with her dad. We don't know what we would have done without her! As first-time wedding planners we had lots of questions along the way, and Jessica was incredibly helpful. We hired her to be our day-of-event coordinator, and I have to say she was worth much more than we paid her! Actually, "day-of-event" is not accurate in this case, as she answered our questions and otherwise provided guidance to us throughout the entire process. She met with us twice before the wedding to go over plans, timelines, etc., and was there for the rehearsal/dinner. On the day of our wedding we really just had to worry about getting ourselves down to the church, since Jessica and her assistant took care of the rest. That was the best part of all, that we could relax and enjoy the day and leave the worries to someone else. She loves what she does and it shows, and it is even more enjoyable to work with someone like that! If we ever have another occasion where we'd hire a caterer it would be Charm City, period. We would recommend them (and Jessica if you are getting married!) to anyone. Thank you Jessica and Charm City for helping to make our wedding so lovely!

We chose Charm City after meeting Jessica at the Baltimore Wedding convention. We were immediately hooked by the tasty crab dip and meatball samples they provided to us. We were also very comfortable with Jessica and felt confident she would do a great job for us.

Jessica met with my then fiance and I to provide an initial sampling of the different menu options. She was very accommodating and made sure to listen to our different and ever-changing requests. We also decided to use her as our "day of" coordinator. We're so glad we made that choice. Jessica dealt with the typical wedding day issues with great aplomb.

Jessica and her team provided great service at a very reasonable price. The food was delicious, her staff very professional, and her attitude always understanding.

Overall, she did a great job with our wedding and we cannot recommend her enough. Jessica is the type of person that you not only want to have work your wedding, but also someone you can hang out with and call a friend.

Thanks.

Franklin and Maria.

When I say Jessica is amazing it is not an understatement! My husband and I had a small budget and went into meetings prepared to be oversold or made to feel bad about what we could or could not afford but not with Jessica. She was honest about what we could get with our budget and how she could make it work! I was so thankful for this. In addition, Jessica is knowledgable about all areas of wedding planning and she advised us with other areas of the wedding as well.

My husband is a picky eater, but after the food tasting we immediately booked them because the food was that good! It was seasoned to perfection and of the highest quality. We had salmon with mango salsa honey roasted chicken steamed veggies and roasted potatoes and CRAB DIP! My guests were coming up to me at the cocktail hour raving about the crab dip! It really is that good. You will not go wrong with Charm City.

On the day of the staff was very professional and efficient. It felt like we had a designated server who looked after my husband and I. When she saw that I hadn't eaten (nerves) she immediately took my plate and wrapped it up so I could take it home! She also made sure that we got a portion of crab dip before our guests devoured it!

Charm City was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding and the value for the level of customer service, quality food and overall execution is superior!

Mr. Errol made it a point to stop by the wedding to make sure things were running smoothly (very nice).

I had been in contact with several caterers and was discouraged with the lack of follow-up, the blatant disregard to my budget and/or food requests, and limited flexibility for my venue. I was referred by a family member to Charm City Catering. They were immediately responsive and set up a consultation and tasting within that same week. The food was DELICIOUS! The pricing and flexibility was also a major plus. Our consultant came to our venue with us to help us determine setup of the space, and also helped us to decide on a signature drink. Our consultant was so friendly, professional, responsive, and had a problem solving attitude to any potential obstacles. On the day of the wedding they showed up 2.5 hours early and finished the set-up. The food was AMAZING! The service was top-notch! And working with them was an overall great experience. They were pleasant and catered to us (bride and groom) to make sure that we were fed and happy. I could not have asked for a better caterer to work with on our special day!

Charm City Catering everything you need in one stop!

Charm City Catering was the first company we met with and the last! The day we met with Jessica and Errol was the day we made them our caterers. It's a local family company that makes you feel like you are the only customer they have. They were able to help me map out my BBQ Menu from cocktail hour till the cake cutting (they were even able to recommend a bakery that serviced the area of my wedding). Everything I asked for they assured me they would be able to deliver and they DID!!!!! The food was amazing from start to finish everything was fresh and flavorful. l I also hired Jessica as my day of coordinator, Jessica totally got the vibe I was going for in my modern rustic theme and was able to add amazing ideas to help complete the vision. For every question I had Jessica had an answer for! She would respond to all of my emails in a timely manner (and there were ALOT ) She was knowledgeable, patient and personable. Jessica handled this neurotic bride with ease and through my many emails she never made me feel like I was a bother. The day of the wedding she was fantastic! My entire family was late due to a flat tire, they were all stranded on the side of the road (mother, father, brother, sister and flower girl) instead of freaking out Jessica moved everything back, made sure the guests had refreshments and kept me calm. What could have been an absolute disaster was nothing more than a small blip on what was the most beautiful day of my life. Thank you Jessica and Errol for making my wedding dreams a reality!

Errol and the staff at CCC were very friendly from the first meeting and made us feel comfortable with our budget and ideas. Errol is very responsive on the phone and through email and answered questions and requests all the way up to the day before the wedding. Many of our guests commented that our reception food was the best they had had at a wedding!! If you are looking for good food with great value-for-dollar possibilities, Charm City is where it's at!

We are very pleased with the food, service, and flexibility. Erroll was very responsive and helpful from the very beginning. This is definitely a NO FRILLS catering service, but they definitely deliver. If you want a very fancy tasting and a lot of fluff then go for the bigger more expensive caterers. However, if you want delicious food, no nonsense, and simplicity, then I recommend Charm City Catering. We had two tastings in Erroll's office and each time the food was delicious. He worked with our budget and gave very helpful suggestions. Our wedding day ran smoothly and the food was GREAT! Everyone commented on how good the food was and even how helpful the catering staff had been. We had a medium-sized wedding (75 p) and it was a great choice for us! Thanks Erroll!

As the venue we chose did not provide their own caterer, we had to find our own. Because the cost of the venue was higher (but worth it!) we could only budget $3500 for the caterer. We unfortunately got what we paid for. Actually, I won a certificate to this caterer at the bridal expo and, as money was tight, thought it would work out. Although service and food on the night was alright, the company was a disaster to work with all the way up to the day of the wedding. The tasting was on a picnic bench in the manager's office, the manager ignored phone calls and messages, coming up with every excuse to why they couldn't do this and that (including blaming it on her two sons...). She definitely let her personal life blend with professional life. One week before the wedding, after 2 weeks of ignored phone calls, etc, I was shopping around for a different caterer. Finally, after my fiance called and unfortunately had to use the magic words "law suit" she called me back.

Unlike her, the servers on the night were mainly professional and polite, even though they didn't know how to set up the bar and let the wine sit in the sun for 2 hours before being served (in addition to goldfish that sat in the sun... yes. they started floating to the surface half-way through the reception!). My advice, pay more and get a better, more reliable caterer.... unless you like undo stress hours before the "I-do's!" Really, all I needed to write on this review was... you get what you pay for.

Charm city catering is a wonderful family own business that will make you feel like family when they cater your wedding. The food was great and my guest all raved about the food.

The best thing about charm city is Jessica. If you do nothing else you must hire Jessica as your day of coordinator. And if you want a stress free, amazing wedding then Jessica is your person. I cannot say enough about how great she was. Jessica was like my new best friend. She ran multiple errands for us; she gave us advice, she did both my hair and one of my bridesmaid’s too. She helped keep us on schedule. She ran interference. She borrowed a tie for my dad after he forgot his color coordinated tie. She brought drinks to me on the dance floor so I could stay hydrated and took them when I had to do the traditional bridal stuff. She cleaned up after the wedding and let us pickup all our stuff a week later. She even took really cool and candid photos with her cell phone and sent them to me. She basically rocked. Hire charm city catering and Jessica, it will be the best decision you ever made!
