John Serock Catering is exceptional. From the start of the process, with my first inquiry, Kristy was incredibly friendly, responsive, and helpful. They provided a very reasonable quote, at which time we scheduled a tasting. We were impressed with the quality of the food, their facilities, and meeting Kristy and John in person. We requested a custom menu of Middle Eastern specialties and they really delivered. At that point, we signed the contract. Kristy continued to be responsive over the next seven months, answering questions, making great suggestions, and talking through timelines, potential problems, and ideas. The day of the wedding brought a massive rainstorm and the entire JSC team handled it with aplomb. Kristy helped stage manage throughout the event, which took a lot off of my mind. Plus, the food was phenomenal and impressed both my caterer father and my Middle Eastern family with its quality and authenticity. (TIP: Their salmon preparation is exceptional, and was even better at the event for 100+ people than it was for the two of us at the tasting, when it was also very good.) I was especially grateful to have staff assigned to me and my husband to ensure that we were well-fed throughout the evening. Seriously, the food was fantastic. I intend to use them again, if only to try the very few dishes that I missed. :)

We could not be happier with John Serock! The food was absolutely delicious and the service was flawless. We have not stopped getting compliments from our guests about how good the food was! They helped coordinate everything from the order of events for the day to walking down the aisle. And when our DJ failed to show up, John was the first one on the phone getting someone to cover (thankfully, we were able to get someone else!). His expertise and professionalism is unmatched. Hiring John Serock Catering was the best decision we could have made. Because of John and his team, we had a completely stress-free wedding. I highly recommend them to anyone planning an event.

John and his team were integral in the success of our event. Many of the guests commented on how much fun they had because the event flowed so flawlessly. It was important to our daughter to have fun at her wedding and to make sure there was not a lot of down time for the guests. John helped us devise a timeline that ensured her wishes were realized.
John and his team recommended a wonderful baker and worked very well with our florist.

John Serock catered our wedding in April at Appleford, and we could not be happier with the job he and his staff did! They were truly flawless throughout the whole process, from the first tasting and menu creation through the execution of the actual event. They worked closely with us to design a menu we were happy with, including several items that they had to create from scratch (miso tuna cones, whole roasted pig, etc.). Within 90 days of the wedding we scheduled a call to review how the day would progress, what to expect, and what role John and his staff would take. We especially appreciated how flexible they were scheduling times to talk via phone and communicating via email as we were planning the wedding in PA from San Francisco. John and Cassidy (his #2) were very thorough and explained how the reception would flow; they were spot on! They also coordinated with other vendors, such as our florist and DJ, making the whole evening worry free for us.

We would highly recommend John Serock for anyone in the Philly area to cater a wedding (or other large event)!

I cannot say enough about this vendor. All of the food was excellent, they provided a wedding coordinator and their prices are more than fair. I dealt with Kristy Arnold who was always there to answer my questions and reassure me. Just having her as the wedding coordinator was worth the price. The food was beyond delicious. We had a buffet with three entrees as well as a happy hour. The staff was gracious and professional and circulated the room making sure that each and every guest had what they needed. Kristy and her team took care of setting up the room with the centerpieces and taking everything down as well. I would not hesitate to use them for anything in the future.

John and his entire staff made our wedding, the planning and actual day, more than we could have dreamed. Every detail was
spot on and done with grace, professionalism, and a smile. Our guests
raved about the delicious food, impeccable service, and
overall A+++ quality of their catering team. And that is just what they
delivered on the actual day. As you know, It takes months of planning
all the details to make it all come together. Cassidy, John, and I'm
sure so many others were so patient, kind, and helpful as they made our
vision come to life. I can't speak highly enough of the pleasure it
was to work with them. They made it just easy as if we have all been
friends for years. It was a pleasure!

John Serock and his staff were phenomenal in so many ways! First of all, their food is great. We first tasted their food at our friend's wedding, again at their catering open house, again at our formal tasting, and finally at our wedding. Each time, everything was perfectly cooked and nicely seasoned. Second, on the day of our wedding, they basically became the day of coordinator and made sure everything ran smoothly. They decorated the wedding venue exactly as we had described; they helped coordinate when we should start walking down the aisle, how long the cocktail hour should be, when our bridal party should give toasts, when we should cut the cake, etc.; and at the end of the night they packed everything up into our parents' van including all of the leftover food! During all of that coordinating, they were really good about making sure things were exactly how we wanted, without bothering us with unnecessary questions.
Third, the staff was especially attentive to us (the bride and groom) throughout the night, making sure we had plenty to eat and drink. It's really easy for the bride/groom to be so busy during the wedding that they forget to eat their own cake, so we were really happy when the servers brought us slices of each of our 3 cake flavors to eat. Fourth, John and his staff were very good about communicating all of the necessary details before the wedding, such as decorations, food allergies for specific guests, and back up plans for inclement weather. So when the big day arrived, we knew we were in good hands and could just relax and enjoy the moment!

My husband and I are a 60-something couple that was planning a 2nd-chance wedding. We were looking for a quality event that celebrated our commitment with almost 90 friends and family members that have been close to us over the years. It was more intended to be more about sharing and less about show. We considered the catering to be our key expense and so we reviewed 3 caterers carefully that had been highly recommended by the venue.

John Serock presented the best overall menu selections for the best price. But, that was just the beginning. Over the year of our engagement, we met with John several times to refine the menu, select linens and china, and to walk through the schedule for the day. On the day of the wedding, we had the worst weather forecast of the entire summer --- 98 degrees with 100% humidity and thunderstorms. We were going to have an outdoor wedding, but the rain started minutes before the first guests arrived. John's staff was so nimble and positive --- they picked up the chairs and florals and rearranged the entire ceremony indoors within minutes. They managed to remove every obstacle and their detailed approach to presentation was evident in everything they touched. Our guests had no idea that wasn't the original design.

Throughout the day John's staff efficiently kept drinks and food coming, but perhaps more importantly, made our guests feel comfortable and they just felt like "family". My guests commented that day and later on how much they enjoyed the food and the fun and the very upbeat people from John's team. In fact, it's been two weeks and we're still getting texts, emails, and calls from guests who wanted us to know how much they enjoyed the day and the fabulous food. My husband and I believe that our wedding was made all the more memorable because of John Serock. We give him our highest recommendation.

I could not have gone with a better caterer. John Serock and his team are absolutely amazing, and so on top of everything that they do. Not only was their food some of the best I ever had but, their professionalism and service was top notch! You would be foolish not to go with them for your wedding, not only did he do such a good job with the food but they were there for every step of the wedding, helping with coordinating everything from the ceremony and reception, to even helping set up all the small details with decorating my venue. They went above and beyond to make sure my wedding day went the best it possibly could. We got stuck in a storm the day of the wedding and the power went out twice for a short while and this did not stop them from making everything perfect. They just worked harder and it was all perfect! Could not have been happier and will go with them for any catering event I may need in the future!
