Ed is fantastic to work with. Before meeting with him I was thinking about doing all the food myself. He has taken such a huge weight off my shoulders so that I can enjoy my day instead of stress out about all the little things I'm sure O would have forgotten about. Thank you so much.

Provided a lot of food for the amount charged. And brought take out containers for my guests so they didn't feel forced to eat everything. Which was a big plus for me. And even gave us the left over food to take home. They were all very flexible and nice.

Ed was very professional and kind when you were able to get through to him. I found myself playing telephone tag quite a bit with him. We rented our reception tent, tables and chairs from him as well. We had our ceremony and reception at our home. Ed came out to our home to examine the yard, and we discussed where we would like the tent to be placed. It was drawn out and agreed how it would be placed. We were told it would show up the Thursday before the wedding, so we both took off work to be there when they came to set up. However, to our surprise, we came home from work on Wednesday with a huge tent in our back yard....facing the wrong way. I called, texted and emailed Ed right away with no response until the next afternoon saying that they were able to get it over a day early and would not charge me. I explained what the problem was, but at this point it was too late, so my groom and I just made adjustments. The staff on the actual wedding day were phenomenal!! Nikki supervised our wedding and made sure everything was exactly how we wanted it throughout the reception without coming up to us too much and taking us out of the moment. I could not have asked for the day to have gone any better. However, we ran into some more trouble with the tent rental when they came to remove it. They had apparently expected us to have the tent completely torn down for them to pick up. I'm not quite sure how we would have been expected to remove a 30' x 60' tent. Also, my husband built a dance floor under the tent and, rather than working around it or asking us to remove it, the man proceeded to bash the railing with a hammer until it fell off and out of his way. Completely unnecessary and unprofessional. Overall, the staff is great at handling the actual day, but service before and after left a lot to be desired.

We heard about "The Festive Board" at a Bridal Show last year. We set up a tasting & consultation with Ed (the owner.) At the tasting, the deli was clean & comfortable, the staff was beyond presentable, and Ed was extremely generous. We got to sample the delis everyday food and we also received a lovely take home plate of fresh wedding food prepared from that days event. We left there KNOWING that we wanted the festive board to cater our wedding, for sure, 100%. One great thing we found w/ them compared to other caters, was that everything is included. Tax, gratuity, linens, napkins, cake cutting, champagne pouring, bar tenders, etc. It was SO easy to work w/ these guys. No hidden fees, no hassles, no worries! So we signed contracts. The staff who worked @ our wedding reception were all ABSOLUTELY PERFECT. They were polite to my guests, efficient with clearing the tables, and properly dressed. Every single person was fabulous. The cocktail hour food was simply phenomenal and we received compliments ALL evening long about those choices. There was an abundance of food there to fully satisfy each guests hungry stomach, lol. The dinner was a served buffet which was a great choice also because everything was still hot when each guest got there. The red mashed potatoes were a HIT. Our only 2 disappointments w/ dinner were the zucchini mix & the asparagus. Zucchini had an overwhelming amount of spices & pepper mixed in and many people couldn't even get it down. The asparagus was served cold and it was VERY large huge pieces - our preference is thin, hot, spiced, and grilled. These were just minor upsets, nothing that made or breaked our opinion whatsoever. The cake was cut quickly, the champagne was measured and poured properly, my husband and I were treated like royalty, and everything was perfect because of The Festive Board. And just to mention again, we didn't even need to break the bank. Thank you Ed, servers, chefs, and bartenders for all of your wonderful help.

Ed and his team were not only the friendliest people I've met but also the most on top of things. We had some snafus when it came to the rentals but Ed was only a text away and he was on it and fixed it. His staff were very professional without being stuffy and a coordinator was appointed to make sure me and my bridal party got to eat each of the appetizers. They set up, cleaned up and tore down everything as promised, had a certified bartender who was awesome, and the prices were the best you can find in the county. Not to mention the selection, and quality of the food. My guests were blown away by the menu. Plus they were open to ideas on some interesting requests for appetizers (ie the grilled cheese and tomato soup sliders). Absolutely I would recommend ed and his festive board team to any bride on a budget who wants really good food.

Festive board was the best choice we could have made for a caterer. We had a buffet dinner for 120 people and cocktails with hors d'oeuvres prior to the dinner. I budgeted $5000 for the food and they kept it right at that budget. The owner was completely hands on in the planning process and the food we had was much higher quality than we paid for. Everyone loved the food. I know this because three months later we went to dinner with a couple that attended and when I asked the husband how his pasta was he said, not as good as the pasta at your wedding score a point for me! They did not provide alcohol but when we put it behind the bar they did everything else. I would use them again in a heartbeat and would tell anyone I knew to do the same.

All the food I've tasted has been really good. Ed has always been quick to respond to email. I took a couple of stars away on orofessionalism because the emails are not even written in sentences, when you call the person you're talking to has no idea where to direct you. Food has always been great, great value for the price. Looking forward to them delivering great food and service on the wedding day as well.
