Every relationship is, in part, about what one brings to the table. At Dish, food is our passion, and we are committed in bringing our excellence to the table. Every wedding is about celebrating your love and passion with friends and family, but we want to make it speak of who you are as a couple more than anything else.

That is the commitment that makes Dish stand apart from other caterers. When I meet with clients I have a few bits of advice—Begin by thinking about what you love to eat. Think about foods or food related experiences that have special significance for you both. Your wedding is an opportunity to share something intimate with your guests, and we'll work together to design the perfect menu and create a stellar event—with a sense of you as a couple, the place, and the season. And with our extensive experience in planning weddings, we help soothe some of the tensions and anxieties, so that you can concentrate on more important things, like life long commitment. Read less

Kate did a drop-off of food for our rehearsal dinner, and pulled it off spectacularly. We were a little under the gun, running late and stressed when she arrived, but she pitched right in, even though it was not in the contract, helping to make sure the event went off without a hitch.

She brought cold salmon, baked pasta and kale salad, and my guests loved all three! I heard multiple people say that it was the best salmon they'd had, and the kale salad with pine nuts was so good there was literally a playful shoving match over who would get the last bites! She absolutely nailed the amount of food needed for 85 guests.

Great food, nice person, and willing to go the extra mile. Bravo!

I worked for Kate 2 months ago and still have not received my pay check, not has she responded to any of my emails, calls, texts. I really need the money and most importantly deserve to be paid for my work! From what I've heard, this happens a lot with her. Hope she turns it around.

I found Kate Hays prickly to work with, her food was mediocre, and apparently she has NO integrity.
We did a tasting with her fairly early on. We were not wow-ed by her food but she talked a good game and for lack of much perspective along with her pressing us to book as she had other inquiries pending for our date, we booked her with a contract and deposit. She then went radio silent. Over several weeks I called many times and emailed to no avail. Filled with apprehension and frustration I began to tentatively shop around and found a great gal through a personal recommendation. Of course then, after I was well into conversations with this gal who had prompt and pleasant responses, I finally heard back from Kate who was so surprised at my wits end and irritation. I don't know what business operates successfully by not returning clients calls and emails and then acting indignant about it. I told her I had moved on and hoped that she would return our deposit less any expenses for our tasting and her time thus far. She still had almost 6 months to fill that date. According to her, she had had plenty of clients knocking down her door. She tried to convince me to continue with her but the more I was exposed to her personality, ways, and means, the more I was convinced this was not a good match, at the least. I told her we had to move on. She agreed to refund at least half of our deposit and, if she re-booked the date, she would refund all of it. I have this in writing:
"I'll send half of the deposit back, and the 2nd half if I can rebook
the date. I promise to be honest about that, and I'd hope that you'd
trust me in that."
I never heard from her again, to this date, despite my many calls and email to her. I understand I have a part to play in the demise of our contract but to completely disregard my calls and her promise to repay speaks volumes!

The catering service was about what we expected. The food was delicious, however, they were not very flexible. Had we chosen our wedding on a more convenient date (for them), I believe that they would have been a 5/5.

Dish responded with the following comments:

Leslie, My name is Kate Hays, and I'm the owner of Dish Catering. I'm a bit confused by your review, and I didn't cater a wedding in June of this year that matches your criteria, nor am I familiar with the tent company you listed--I've never worked with them. Are you sure you have the correct caterer? I pride myself on being very flexible. I think there may be some confusion here.....

A tall order for any caterer. Luckily, our wedding planner, Carrie of Storied Events, found the incomparable Kate of Dish Catering. Kate understood our requests perfectly. She worked with local vendors, found humanely-raised meat, helped us pick all seasonal produce, and prepared an absolutely stunning and delicious wedding feast.

My husband and I are passionate about food--both how it tastes and how it is sourced. We are tough customers, and if fact one caterer "fired us" because he didn't think it was possible to deliver what we asked for. We wanted the food at our wedding to be both delicious and socially responsible. A tall order for any caterer. Luckily, our wedding planner, Carrie of Storied Events, found the incomparable Kate of Dish Catering. Kate understood our requests perfectly. She worked with local vendors, found humanely-raised meat, helped us pick all seasonal produce, and prepared an absolutely stunning and delicious wedding feast!!! Our guests praised the food, saying it was the best they had ever had at a wedding. The times we spent with Kate during our planning (and our amazing tasting) remain highlights of our wedding planning process and we are delighted that she was our caterer. We highly, highly recommend Dish Catering.
