To say that the food and service of Le Papillon is excellent would be an understatement! We were told that Le Papillon catering is exactly like dining at their restaurant – that we could expect the same quality and inventiveness, the same impeccable service and the same attention to detail on the day of our event – al fresco, for dozens of guests, simultaneously. We could not have been more pleased! From the passed appetizers, to the main course, and on to dessert, every bite was expertly prepared and presented. Tamera and her team kept on eye on every detail, and provided many special touches for the bride and groom. And we received rave reviews from our guests – many who commented it was not only the best food they had ever eaten at a wedding, but the best food they had ever eaten – period.

I would highly recommend Le Papillon as your wedding caterer. Their level of service and attention to detail at our wedding was incredible. All of the food served was so delicious; our friends are still talking about it. I would highly recommend doing the split plate Beef and Fish option. It was delicious and you avoid having to declare choices ahead of time. They are also very accommodating of vegetarians and food allergies. Mike, the owner is very friendly and we really enjoyed working with him and Jondel. Thank you very much for all of your hard work. The food was wonderful!

FLAWLESS! If you go with Le Papillon you will not only have THE BEST FOOD you have ever tasted at a wedding (or anywhere for that matter!), you will also have the BEST SERVICE! Mike (the owner) and Jondel (events) will save your day and make for the MOST GRACIOUS WEDDING EVER! Even the most discerning guests will be impressed and blown away by their meal and fine wines. We had a winemaker from Bordeaux, FR at our wedding and he talked about the food & wine pairing for days afterwards...Every bite is a pleasure. You DESERVE the BEST!!! You only get married once and I suggest you use The Best!

Le Papillon catered our wedding and the food was absolutely amazing. Our guests are still raving about the food and how good it was. Mike, the owner is great to work with and very accommodating. If you want anything done you should go directly to Mike. He was at our wedding and it ran very smoothly. Picking out the meal options was more of a headache than it should have been but in the end we got everything we wanted for a great value. They also cut and served our cake however they did not serve the guests cake if they were not at their seat (many were already dancing at this point). That was the only item we wished was discussed in advance as we would have liked every guest to be served cake. All in all if you want delicious food Le Papillon is the way to go.

One thing I absolutely has to have at my wedding was delicious food since all my friends know me as a foodie. People LOVED the food and called it one of the best wedding meals they have ever had. Everything from the hors d'oeuvres to the sea bass/filet mignon...people will not stop talking about how amazing the food was.

My only quibble was the delay in communication during the whole process. When I first contacted them, I did not receive a response for at least four days and almost went with a different vendor. This continued throughout the whole planning process, which can be stressful weeks before the wedding when you're trying to coordinate with other vendors. Other than that, they're great.

I cannot speak highly enough about Le Papillon!! Mike and Jondel go above and beyond to make sure everything . The food they serve at the wedding is as beautiful and delicious as the food that is served in the restaurant, and if you have been to the restaurant, that should speak for itself.

This is not the "same old wedding food", it is spectacular! At our wedding they served soup shots, and an heirloom salad that was so incredible people are still talking about it! They also were able to accomodate our request for a kosher style meal, which really pleased my husband and his parents. If you want an elegant event to remember, Le Papillon is the caterer for you!

5 years later and I come here to write a review.... it was that good. (Our ring designer just did some stuff for us and I came here to write for him too)
People really do still talk about our food. They were a joy to prepare the menu with and had many good insights for us. Their flexibility and thoughtfulness was outstanding. At the Jewish wedding there is a great tradition where the bride and groom get some alone time before greeting the guests after the ceremony. Understanding that the B & G don't get to eat much, the staff at Le Papillon sent the full array of our hors d'oeuvre up to our private pre-guest-greeting suite.
