My wife and I just celebrated our six month anniversary and since our wedding day we always talk about one vendor, ENCORE! To give a little background, during our planning my wife and I were on the same page about every vendor except catering - I was convinced that using a vendor that gave us a cheaper quote would be sufficient and everyone would still have a great time dancing and partying. My wife convinced me Encore was the better choice, she has never been more right on a decision, ever. Encore was absolutely amazing! Let me repeat AMAZING. I want to say it one more time AMAZING!! Why Encore is absolutely incredible 1)The food is so good I still dream about the food they served. Everyone’s first sentence to me at the wedding was “Congratulations and this food is AMAZING, who are they?” Where we got married there was no kitchen, so their ability to make incredible food even with this challenge put them in an entirely different category in my opinion. 2)Their service level is by far the best service I have ever seen at a wedding or restaurant. They were attentive to each of our guests needs, took ownership and resolved any problem. A great example, it was hot and our wedding was outside – They wet napkins and put them in the freezer, once cold, they gave them to our guests on the dance floor to cool off. Another example, it rained on our big day and I was walking to some guests (outside of our cocktail area) Michelle (The Maître D) knew I had requested shrimp cocktail. She covered the shrimp, ran in the rain and met me under my umbrella and waited (in the rain!) as I ate it just to ensure I was happy. 3)They are organized, efficient, and responsive during the planning process. Lilly and June were so helpful, as we did our pre-walk before the wedding they had everything covered - knew all of the questions to ask/ problems that could arise - incredible attention to detail. All in all Encore is absolutely incredible, you should stop looking and choose Encore today!

I just celebrated my 25th Anniversary at the home of my son which is a lot for a caterer to manage- On top of that I had 2 caterers - and Indian one and Encore- both trying to navigate in a home kitchen. It was seamless!

They arrived, set up- and got the food out to my 130 guests without a snag.
The presentation was stunning- the food delish- Everyone was absolutely raving. I did passed apps and small plates- and my friends could not say enough about not only the food but the professionalism of the staff.

I booked Thanksgiving from them yesterday- its so reasonable- why should I work so hard and be exhausted. Now I can enjoy my family and my day.

3 friends that attended are already planning to use them for weddings and parties- and many have asked for their details.

Look no further- they have the whole package- taste, presentation and service

Encore Catering made our night! I did a lot of research into our caterer, and Encore was the place to beat from our very first interactions with them--professional, responsive, and very willing to work with our budget and needs. Not only did they provide amazing hors d'oeuvres and dinner, but they also provided our chair, linens, and china rental, and a really amazing staff.

Lilly and Karen were a dream to work with and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Oh, and we also worked with them for our wedding cake, which looked beautiful, and though I only had the piece that my husband fed me at the cake-cutting, I think was very good!

Working with Encore Catering was a great experience from beginning to end - we were impressed with the very first tasting! Their waitstaff was great, the drinks were flowing, and everyone was raving about the food. We've been recommending them to family and friends left and right!

Even though we had our wedding last year, people STILL are saying how great the food was. From the tasting to the execution, they really shone. Lisa and Chef Robert really helped us with the menu and were with us every step of the way from the tasting all the way down to the walk-through for our venue. They were timely in every correspondence and gave us a lot of options so that we could have the wedding of our dreams with the budget we were alotted. On the day of our wedding, we had a maitre 'd, Michelle, to get food for us and made sure we had water and whatever we needed. We had picked lobster rolls as one of the passes for our cocktail hour, and when I heard that I missed a pass, Michelle found out, went straight to the kitchen and came out with the next batch. Fed bride = happy bride.

They really are a great bang for the buck and we would definitely use them again. If you don't want BLAH food at your wedding, I suggest going with Encore Catering and go for the short ribs (they are to die for). ;P

We went with Encore because they didn't give us a hard sell, the food at the tasting was above average, and their prices for offsite catering was as competitive as we could find. Encore exceeded all of our expectations on the day of, flawlessly setting up at a difficult venue, and passing food that people raved about all night long. We can't recommend them enough.
