Thank you so much to Tom and the whole crew at H&J Catering! You really helped to make our wedding the most amazing day. From the get go, Tom was extremely accommodating with my fiance and I as we were planning our wedding from out of state. He was very flexible in helping us find a time to meet with him and have a taste test when we were in the area, and we were extremely happy with the food options. The spiedies won us over - being Central New York natives and now living in Boston, we wanted to honor our roots by including spiedies in our menu. On day of, I didn’t have to worry about a thing. The crew was there on time and everything looked amazing. Two caterers even brought my new husband and I our meals direct to our table (even though we were going buffet-style). They were extremely gracious and attentive. What’s more, we had many compliments through the night and for days after at how good the food was (the vegetables were my favorite!), and our vegetarian guests were blown away by the delicious options available to them.

I highly recommend H&J. Chelsea was amazing to work with! She was incredibly flexible, responsive, and accommodating. Totally exceeded all expectations. Rene coordinated the catering on the wedding day. She and her team transformed a venue in 1.5 hours into something spectacular- setting up tables, chairs, center pieces, flowers, candles, pie stands, ect. Guests raved about the food. The value of the overall package was great!

Dustin worked with me for the year leading up to my wedding to perfect the menu, and allowed me to feed all my guests a very high quality meal on a realistic budget. There were so many menu options to choose from, and a lot of ancillary services like cake cutting were included in their event rates. H&J provided me with plenty of linen and china rental options.

The staff that came out to our wedding were fabulous. They were unobtrusive but genuinely friendly, and they were very professional. They handled a lot of the decorating, placing hundreds of candles and even places fresh flowers on and around my wedding cake.

I am so glad we hired H&J Hospitality to provide the food for our special day, we didn't have to worry about a thing and our guests enjoyed a lovely meal.

H&J did an amazing job caterering our outdoor wedding on a private property 30 minutes away from their kitchen. The food was on point, delicious, hot and beautifully displayed; we received so many compliments. Dustin was so amazing to work with, by far the best vendor we had! He was quick to respond to every question and request we had throughout the months leading up to our wedding, which were many! They worked within our budget to design a food and bar menu that we could both afford and be proud of. They went above and beyond during service, all the staff was professional and attentive! I would recommend H&J to anyone looking for a caterer for their event.

Dustin was amazing to work with from start to finish for our wedding. He was very responsive and helpful and accommodating. He organized all of the table and linen rentals and is very knowledgable. He and his staff did a great job the evening of our wedding despite a huge rainstorm. All of our guests raved about the food. We are very glad we went with H&J!

We used H&J for our wedding on September 12, 2015. Dustin, the catering manager, and his staff were awesome. Leading up to the wedding Dustin was quick with his responses, caring and attentive. Their professionalism was beyond our expectations. The food was outstanding. I can't say enough about H&J! It was pouring rain all day, the staff was in and out of the rain, soaking wet, but always had a smile on their faces and willing to do anything to accommodate or guest. Outstanding service!

Accommodating, Extremely Professional From Start To Finish, And Fantastic People To Work With!
Dustin and the H&J crew saved the day on our wedding day!

1. H&J graciously accommodated my wife and I's request and agreed to work with another catering company in order to serve Americana and Filipino food for our mixed wedding! From the very beginning and throughout the process, Dustin was organized, personable, easy to contact, prompt to respond via e-mail's, and we felt like he understood our view of what we wanted for our wedding.

2. H&J helped SAVE our wedding day because the other caterer was a no-show and unresponsive for the entire cocktail hour and 3 hours late to serving their part of the entree's. On the day of our wedding Dustin and the H&J team helped manage food, manage guests, and keep guests happy. Dustin worked with the MC to re-arrange the timeline of serving food with wedding events and the H&J staff were quickly on board and entirely helpful.

3. What I am most appreciative for is how professional, calm, and reassuring Dustin was as he frequently called the caterer for me, discreetly kept me up to date, and told me to enjoy my time with my friends and family. Dustin and the H&J crew were so professional that my wife and guests were not aware of the background chaos and really made OUR wedding the focus of the day.

4. When the other caterer/food finally came 3 hours later, the H&J staff immediately prepped the food and provided excellent service to our guests!

5. Thank You So Much! Britt and I are very grateful and look back on what a great day it was, it really would not have been possible without your help!

I would recommend Dustin and the H&J company to future couples for their excellent service and professionalism.

H&J was a great deal and very accommodating for a couple that wasn't always the most organized and needed some guidance. Chelsea was extremely helpful crafting a menu and schedule for our wedding at the Farmers Market, keeping our costs in check and always gracious and responsive. All of our guests were ecstatic about the excellent vegetarian buffet and the great bar service. What's more, set-up, service, and breakdown went off without a hitch, so we could just sit back and relax after the ceremony. Highly recommended for folks who want to tailor a wedding to their personal tastes.

Our wedding was held in early August at Emerson Park Pavilion, and H&J did a fabulous job catering the event. From the time we signed up for the venue two-years ago (we had to sign up early, because it's a very popular venue in the summer), H&J worked with us to make our event exactly what we wanted. We initially worked with Adrienne, and later worked with Andrea and Maria, each of whom was very professional, accommodating, and easy to work with. On the day of the wedding, the weather was beautiful, and all of the planning we had put in worked out perfectly. We had the food catered family-style, which was a big hit with our guests. Several people commented to me that they really enjoyed the food. For cocktail hour, we upgraded the passed appetizers to include shrimp cocktail, lamb lolly-pops, and crab cakes. Each was really delicious, although many people commented on how great the lamb was. All-in-all, we are super happy that we went with Emerson Park and H&J. I cannot imagine it turning out any better!
