There are only a handful of weddings where I remember the food, and half of those it was because the food was less than great. My now-husband and I wanted to make sure that the guests at our wedding remembered our food for all the right reasons.

We wanted a veggie-forward meal that had bright flavors and would appeal to everyone. One of my favorite dishes of all time is imam bahildi, a vegetarian stuffed eggplant dish found in Greek and Middle Eastern restaurants. It was not on Eric's list of provided dishes, but he found a a couple recipes that he used to create his own melt-in-your-mouth delicious vegetarian main! I didn't think I could be happier after trying a bite of it, but then I tried his couscous salad, green bean salad, and caprese salad (he makes his own balsamic!). Fabulous! For the dads and other meat eaters, Eric managed to put out a chicken so moist and flavorful that it is absolutely shocking it spent any time on a buffet table.

My aunt never gets up for seconds, but she did at our wedding. My father-in-law went back for thirds. Our vegan food blogger friend said that this was the best wedding food she had ever had (and her wedding was in a Brazilian restaurant). Everyone loved the food so much that there were hardly any leftovers for us to enjoy the next day!

Eric Stamer Catering provided an amazing meal that everyone - vegans, vegetarians, gluten-free people, and carnivores - enjoyed immensely! And, it was all delivered with top-notch service leading up to and throughout the night. Eric was the one to ask about the challah for our Jewish wedding ceremony, which definitely earned me points with my mother-in-law!

Oh, and I almost forgot about the bartender! This lady was AMAZING! My aunt is still talking about the top-notch old fashioned that was mixed for her. Perfection!

A big thanks to Eric Stamer and his team for making my wedding such a success!

I am happy that we chose Eric Stamer Catering to cater our food for our wedding. Eric met with us many times as we tried to narrow down our menu and always made himself available to meet with us. This was important and appreciated as we did not live local to the area. Some of the catering companies were uppity and exorbitantly expensive in my opinion. Eric was none of this-he was willing to work with you to accomodate catering services within your budget. He had to work another wedding on our day so Tish took things over in the end and on the wedding day (who was also great). They also are flexible in that they allow you to provide alcohol to keep costs down, while their bartenders serve it. The food on the wedding day was what we had requested, was plentiful, tasty, and warm. The bartenders kept the drinks flowing and had my glass of white wine ready before I even reached the bar :) They even cleared out the event space as part of their services and it was all ready to go the following day when I picked it up at the event space. This was nice so I could go back to the hotel and continue the wedding celebrations and not worry about cleaning up the reception space. I would recommend them 100%, for the great service and great value.

Guest loved the food. I loved the knowledge they had of wedding catering. They were a bit slow in returning emails and phone calls, also they were not completely flexible in executing OUR vision, but rather were interested in doing it they way they "typically" do. However, that being said, the food and service at the wedding was TOP NOTCH.

Eric and Tish were wonderful! They were great at paying attention to details, and forthcoming with advice during the planning process of this whole thing! The service and food on our wedding day was AMAZING, and the presentation of it was incredible as well (we actually got some GREAT photos of the food!!). I can't imagine working with a better catering team!

Eric is super flexible and talented. His food is always delicious and he has a broad range of skill. He is willing to help you as little or as much as you need for your wedding. He's very open to helping you keep down costs so is not offended if you cut dishes or service or anything to help lower your cost because he so understanding. I highly recommend him and his staff for any event, not just a wedding.

Very flexible. The catering food was great. The service could have been improved upon, as well as the overall customer service of the company. Not the kindest bunch, but they get the job done. The food was great. Food prices are skyrocketing in general, so they were pretty expensive, but so is everyone else. If you can get cheaper food, do it.

Eric was fantastic. Everyone in charlottesville seemed to know him, and when I mentioned he was catering my wedding, they all said great! I'd have a perfect night. and we did! the food was amazing, the ceremony ran late, but the food was still hot and perfect. The waitstaff were incredibly professional. We had a buffet, everyone's glass was always full, and they came by to check on us every once and a while. Out of the whole wedding, eric was the vendor I worried least about. I planned this from out of town, and he filled in the gaps between vendors to make everything flow smoothly. He was very flexible on the menu and worked well within my budget. He also made recommendations on how to best reduce cost. I was really suprised on the quality of food we got for the price I asked for. I would absolutely recommend eric for any event in charlottesville.
