Kim and Deb were so wonderful to work with! They made sure we were aware and available to attend the tasting, which was amazing!! Also, we started booking our vendors a year and a half before the date and they were very accommodating with all of our changes we made during that time. The day of the wedding their servers made a point to bring myself and my now husband our drink of choice and they brought over entire serving trays full of our hors d'oeuvres while we took pictures! I also asked them to make sure I got the apple cider donuts and they made sure to do that! They were awesome and made us feel like it was all about us! Can I tell you.... the food was SO delicious! So, VERY delicious. Everyone RAVED about it!!

The Elegant Touch of Altamont is exactly that! Our party was a dream come true! The stations were beautifully executed and filled with great food (stuffed mushrooms, hand-made egg rolls, and tasty fondue.....(our tastes were pretty different and Deb was able to coordinate beautifully with ET's executive chef Kim...) The food and decor was above and beyond what I have had with other caterers and is truly made with love and dedication...I have already re-booked the ET team for a New Years eve party this year!!! Can't wait to see what creative things Debbie and Kim will come up with for our masquerade themed party:) Many many many thanks for rising to the occasion...highly recommended.... :))

I've worked with Elegant Touch quite a few times in the past. They have not only catered my wedding in 2002 but both my children's baby showers and most recently my nieces first birthday. Time after time they have not only provided food my guests rave for months about but always continue to provide excellent service and unique displays and ideas. I'm sure we will be doing business again in the future and I would recommend them to anyone else.

I don’t even know where to begin to write this review, other than I feel like ET completely ruined my wedding day for me. Up to the wedding (including the tasting), we were sure we picked the right vendor. However, ET did not pull through for us on our wedding day. First of all we had 2 meal options for our guests. When ET first started bringing out meals my mother had to tell THEIR wait staff that there were 2 options because they were just going around slamming down one single type of plate in front of everyone. Then the chicken they served our guests (and the B&G) I don’t think can even classify as chicken...they might as well grilled up some chalk and threw it on a plate, it was SO dry and no one ended up eating it at all and most guests left our wedding hungry. Also, at the tasting they gave us a HUGE heaping of butternut squash soup which was absolutely delicious. At the wedding, they served it in little shot glasses to our guests, most of our guests thought it was dressing for a salad. The cocktail hour I was told was nothing special at all, and there was no silver ware or plates for guests to help themselves to the cocktail food. They also only had about 3 servers for a wedding of 130 guests…it took about 2.5 hours for dinner to get served. They closed our 5 hour complete open bar about 30 minutes early. Also, they only brought one bartender, who was SO SLOW, most people had to wait 30 minutes for even a beer. I paid for mini pies to be served as dessert (in lieu of a wedding cake as we were trying to stick with a fall theme) and Elegant Touch took it upon themselves to bring in large pies and cut them (most people wouldn't pick knit about this but we paid almost $400 for small individual pies). To top it all off, when I called the Monday after my wedding to discuss this with them, I was told there was nothing they could do and I should’ve told them while at the wedding (I'm sorry but no bride should complaining and worrying about that).

This is the most unprofessional place that I have ever delt with, ever!!' We used elegant touch for our wedding on lake George this past July... The staff was incredibly rude and unprofessional! My guests who ordered prime rib were served chicken! When my guests said they had received the wrong dish they were given attitude and told there was no more prime rib!!! Which is impossible especially when the whole wait staff was in the back eating the prime rib that was meant for my guest! When my wedding planner told them they needed to give my guest the prime rib, the waitress brought it to my guest and basically threw there plates in front of them!!!! We had Italian meats and cheeses as some if our hors de vours and the cheese was not even cut nor were there any utensils to cut it with... There were no napkins or plates provided for the hors de vours either! Not only this, if you think they will caterer to the bride and groom your wrong... In fact husband and I didn't even get a chance to taste anything except a meatball!! (We were taking pics) They didn't even set some aside for us to eat later!! It seemed to be a big deal when we asked them to bring us a drink! At the end of the night they didn't leave any thing for any of my guest to drink not even water! So for two hours my guest were thirsty ( very hot in July) not to mention we paid for these drinks and watched them pack them up! they didn't clean anything at all!!! After everything was over my husband and I had to clean up after our own wedding!!' Nice to know when you get married in a castle and pay top dollar for a caterer you have to do their job at the end of the night! To top this all off my guests heard the waitstaff call our family white trash!!! I'm sure white trash get married in a castle all the time!! This is the worse place ever I wouldn't recommend it to my worse enemy! Let me say one good thing, the food tasted good and that is all!

Elegant Touch catered our tent wedding in the month of June(2013) at my parents home in Guilderland, NY. It was everything plus more than we expected. Working with Deborah was hassle free and a pleasure. Chef KIm's rosemary lamb chops were to die for. All the food, from the hors d'oeuvres to our summertime themed buffet, was out of this world. My personal favorite was the mango salsa with the homemade pita chips. Their staff was personable and catered to our every need. I would highly recommend Elegant Touch to anyone who is looking for a personal touch to their event.

Debbie and Kim were wonderful. From the day we booked them through the wedding the were very professional. We chose a rather simple menu (everyone had Chicken Marsala) but the food was amazing. They did a beautiful job setting up and even set up a few things for us we never expected them to. They were always open and accommodating to our requests.

We were a little concerned with the speed of the service since we only had 4.5 hours for the cocktail hour and reception but they were extremely prompt with the service and served a sit down dinner to 100 guests in great time (our guests had all been served in the time it took for my wife and I to finish our meal)

If I was to pick anything that could have been better it would have been the availability of times for sampling, they gave us several opportunities but since we usually found out about a week in advance I was unable to change my schedule. I would not hold this against them though since our dinner was amazing and they took everything we asked for into account such as my wife's and parents dietary issues.

I will definitely be recommending them to everyone!
