I would highly recommend Eleven Courses for your catering needs. They catered my son's wedding last month and the food was delicious. Guests are still commenting on how much they enjoyed the dinner, especially the appetizers (mini cheeseburgers, tomato soup with grilled cheese and chicken & waffle... all comfort foods :-)

Jim and Melissa are professional and easy to work with. They answered my numerous questions prior to the wedding and handled all the last minute details. The serving staff and bartenders also did an outstanding job. The entire reception ran smoothly from start to finish.

Everyone had a great time. I would definitely use them again in the future.

Thanks Jim, Melissa and your entire staff.

Eleven courses is an exceptional caterer. Their food and service is top notch and the best part is that they were able to work within our budget. Multiple guests told me after the wedding the food was was the best wedding dinner that they have ever had. Good food makes people happy, so I highly recommend them.

Eleven Courses was perfect for us because they have set packages for the dinner and you get to pick from a long lists of delicious options. We added hor dourves and desserts, which were also a big hit with our guests. It was like seeing kids in a candy store when people first saw the dessert table displayed. Eleven Courses can also provide all the staffing necessary. The staff at our wedding was extremely friendly and seemed to really enjoy the work. They had a team of waiters to handle the service and cleanup, plus two bartenders that were all managed by the Eleven Courses.

We were blessed to have Melissa Benson, who was the catering manager. She is professional, sharp, and extremely competent! She knows how to work with couples, and from the initial contact, to the tasting, to the e-mails leading up to the big day everything was executed exactly how we asked for it and exactly how we envisioned it. The confidence we had in her and her team allowed us to focus on other things and actually enjoy the wedding itself! I really can’t say enough about the great work of eleven courses and would again highly recommend them for any event!

Eleven courses was incredible from day 1. We had an amazing initial testing. They were the first caterer we had tried and had other tasting set up. However, when as soon as we left the tasting we knew we had to go with them. The food was incredible. We wanted comfort food with a fancy twist and that's what we got. Melissa is so responsive and dealt with probably hundreds of emails from me with questions on a daily basis. Chrissy was our day of coordinator and we immediately adored her. I couldn't have been happier the services eleven courses provided.

We chose Eleven Courses to handle the wedding reception .. and are so happy that we did. We received raves about the food from the guests, and the staff was outstanding!

From the very first contact we had with them to the final note played at the reception, they exceeded all expectations.

Amazing value, great staff, and fabulous menu options!

I don't think I can truly and fully express how blessed Ryan and I were to have had Eleven Courses as our caterer for our wedding day. From the moment we had our tasting, to the finalizing of details, to the actual wedding day, Ryan and I were in great hands. There was NEVER a doubt in our minds that Eleven Courses would let us down.
I feel like I could write an entire essay on how amazing Melissa Benson and the rest of the Eleven Courses crew carried themselves throughout this wedding planning process, without mentioning how amazing the food was...because I could totally write an entire essay on that too. To keep things short though, Melissa was just great with following up and answering all of our questions. Catering to our vegetarian guests was a breeze, and making changes to the contract was effortless. Melissa, I am so sad Ryan and I never got the honor of meeting you in person, but if I could, I would give you a HUGE hug right now for everything you did for us.
Chrissy was our day of coordinator, which i was personally ecstatic about because she hosted our food tasting, and I absolutely loved working with her. Chrissy, if you are reading this, I am so sad that i did NOT get a chance to hug you that day, because you were just awesome about listening to our needs, and really making sure that Ryan and I got a chance to eat. Not only that, but Ryan and I came back to the venue and found that the room was absolutely spotless. Thank you SO much for taking care of the cleanup.

Now on to the food: I can only say one word: incredible. EVERYONE in the wedding commented on how crazy amazing the food was. We barely had any leftovers!! [Which, I was very sad about haha]. Chef Jim, it was such an honor to have met you....your dishes were excellent. And my goodness, can I just also add how incredibly humble Chef Jim is?

Eleven Courses was fantastic. They did so much more then just "cater" my reception - they made sure that my complete wedding day vision
came to life. They did everything from assisting me in the planning process (answering my countless emails, always with enthusiasm), and coordinating with my vendors to executing my timeline and special requests without a hitch. Melissa and Jenna you are the best!

The presentation/plating of the hors d'oeuvres and stations were top-notch. Everything tasted as good as it looked. No detail was over-looked.

A special thanks to Chef Jim for recreating his version of classic French dishes that I grew up eating - so spot on!!

Melissa and Jim along with the entire Eleven Courses crew were absolutely amazing!! They helped to pull off our backyard reception without a hitch. They were there early and got right to work on setting up. Everything was ready to go when the guests arrived and everything flowed very nicely!! People are still commenting on how wonderful the food was. They were so flexible with the menu and were willing to do whatever my husband and I wanted! Melissa was also such a big help coordinating with the other vendors for the day and making sure that everything was set up and ready to go. I actually lost my earring which had belonged to my deceased grandmother and Melissa vowed that she would not leave until the earring was found!!

From start to finish Eleven Courses exceeded my expectations for the day! They helped to make it what I had always dreamed it would be. All the staff were super friendly and answered any questions the guests had. The personal touch that they gave everything just made everything that much nicer! We couldn't have been happier with the service we received! I would highly recommend Eleven Courses to anyone looking for a wedding caterer - they can't be beat!
