We contrated with Emily's for our vintage barn wedding at the Rarittan Inn. They provided above and beyond service! They gave tips and floor plans on gave ideas on a workable set up for the barn and tent including prop transitions between the ceremony and reception. They also directly coordinated with our party rental supplier directly, saving my husband and I a lot of the planning stress during an already hectic time.

On wedding day, the staff dressed the tables and and up center pieces. They were even thoughtful enough to bring extra details in case we forgot anything... like a sign and box for our gift table. As far as the food goes, it was great! We still get compliments from our guests regarding the meals. We hightly recommend Emily's.

I cannot say enough good things about Emily's Catering! Jenn was incredibly responsive to every email, even about the smallest detail. The menu was flexible and there were so many amazing options to choose from. They were also very conscious about our budget. The food was amazing and we got so many compliments from our guests.

Jenn went above and beyond typical catering duties. She helped put out all of our center pieces and really played a big part in the day of coordinating. I felt completely comfortable leaving things in her hands.

I would recommend Emily's to anyone!

I love Emily's!!!!!! Jennifer was my contact, and she was such a delight!!! Super responsive via email, always accommodating (including to unusual requests, such as wedding pies and ice cream from my favorite local place), and she even brought me a plate full of chocolate-covered strawberries at the reception to make sure I got some. The food was absolutely to die for - gourmet preparations, truly truly delicious. If the food is important to you, go for Emily's!

Emily's was a crucial part to our wedding- not only did they provide the great food, cake, and service, but Sam also coordinated all the rentals and set-up- so much more than I ever expected a caterer would do! Sam herself was so patient, kind, and helpful through the process- she definitely made the planning stages a lot easier. We couldn't be happier we chose them, and I'm still getting compliments on aspects of their services and food. We are definitely looking forward to using them again in the future.

AMAZING! First off, the people here are so kind and thoughtful and detail-oriented. They will work with any budget you have. Next, the food here is fantastic, and they offer a ton of variety. Next, the presentation was absolutely beautiful, and they handled all of the decorations, arrangement, and preparation. I had zero stress working with this vendor. And finally, the deal was amazing. The cost was reasonable and our guests has a ton of food. Many of my guests had seconds, and we brought home trays of food that lasted for days. My experience with Emily's was absolutely perfect. I can't wait to use them for my next party.

Emily's Catering was such a pleasure to work with (especially Jennifer). Jennifer worked with me to come up with a menu that fit my budget and she came up with lots of creative ideas which was very helpful! Not only did Emily's take care of catering, they also helped with setting up the chairs, putting up the decorations, etc. You can tell that they are very experienced in catering for large outdoor weddings as everything went according to plan and looked so beautiful....their presentation is amazing. All I can say is that Emily's will bring your vision to life! Till today, all our guests tell us that the food was fantastic and so yummy!

Jennifer did an awesome job and she is such a pleasure to work with and very detail oriented. If you have any concerns, she will address them and work with you to find solutions. For instance, I did not want the typical metal cake stand for my wedding cake given that I was going for an elegant rustic theme and next thing I know Jennifer presented me with several creative options, one of which was using a wine box as a cake stand. My name and my husband's name was on the box in beautiful calligraphy and the end result was beautiful and unique. Emily's does an awesome awesome job and they certainly exceeded my expectations! You will have no stress working with Emily's. When you go with Emily's you are getting so much more than a caterer!

From the moment we stepped into Emily's Cafe in Pennington, my husband and I were excited to plan the menu for our wedding day. Emily accommodated all of our requests, including farm to table menu planning, and acknowledgement of local sources. We wanted our wedding to have food that the guests were excited about. Emily's staff was sensational. They worked so hard, making every detail stand out. My guests are STILL talking about how great the food was. The professionalism and integrity of each staff member was tremendous, building a flawless presentation and experience for my guests. Everything was perfect!

I wish I could give them more stars for professionalism--Jennifer is amazing! She is such a great person to work with for a wedding because she is so kind & so supportive of the couple's choices. I loved working with her & felt like she went out of her way to make our day great (although other brides have said that--so that just must be how great Jennifer is!).

We loved Emily's catering--the food was awesome! My husband still dreams about the pulled pork! Our guests enjoyed everything & even asked for the extra appetizers to be put out during the meal. The service was great! Everyone was friendly & helpful.

Highly recommend if you want delicious food & an event managed by people who really know what they are doing & really care about their clients!

Full discloser: I've worked with Emily's Catering before on a couple other smaller events, so I was fully aware that the food was fabulous. They turned out to be sort of the unofficial caterer of the entire engagement/wedding process, in fact, doing a range of services. My mother booked them for the engagement party (private home, full service buffet staffing including bar service), my MOH booked them for my shower (event space, full buffet staffing but no bar), and we booked them for the wedding (cocktail hour, passed hors, seated meal, two bars). In all cases they rocked it! Delicious, delicious food, great service, and all so so beautifully presented, plus they were able to share fun little signs telling people which way to go, what the signature cocktails were, etc. It was really just lovely. We had an outdoor cocktail hour, and of course that was when the 20 minutes of rain for the entire day had to happen! But they rolled with it - just grabbed everything and scooted into the tent, and worked with my coordinator to rearrange the schedule and it worked out great. And ohmygod the cake. It was so pretty and so good - multiple flavors because we couldn't decide. They had kids meals that were a hit, and - big points here - were super accommodating about the various allergies we had among the guest list. Love them!
