Eddie Izzo, Main Event Caterers, not only provided the most delicious and varied menu, but took care of every detail of the wedding. He interfaced with all the other vendors in terms of timing, scheduling and flow of the entire event. He took care of everything!! When you work with Eddie, it's smooth sailing. He has all the bases covered.

Evan (Eddie's asst) provided us with the most beautiful glatt Kosher wedding at Studio 450. Easy to deal with and Evan was present to coordinate things throughout the wedding. Highly recommend. I did comparison pricing for Main Event (although we were leaning towards using Eddie of Main Event). The comparison was between his prices, Foremost and some company named Above & Beyond. The Above and Beyond owner woman was lovely but her prices were above & beyond. Foremost never even contacted me after they sent me a price list. Eddie Izzzo is a real mansch, and his asst. Evan was terrific!

We had a bumpy ride planning our wedding with Main Event, but in the end they did a BEAUTIFUL job on the day of our event. The food was delicious, the day-of coordinator (Bruce) was sensational, and the presentation was beautiful. It was also a good value for a kosher NYC wedding.

I would ultimately recommend them to a friend, with some reservations. I got very frustrated with them many times during the planning process and I was anxious about how things would turn out. But in the end, they gave us an extraordinary wedding, and we are very grateful.

My husband and I were married at the Maritime Parc in Jersey City, NJ on 9/18. Eddie and his staff worked closely with myself and my parents in order to get the day exactly right. From the moment my parents got in touch with him, they knew he was their caterer - and when he gave them a house call in central NJ (in the freezing December weather) to seal the deal, it was even more evident.

Eddie invited us to his space for a tasting and we were all blown away. Sometimes with kosher food you don't know what the quality will be at your affair so we were pleasantly surprised.

On the day, we got SO MANY compliments from our guests that the food was terrific. The cocktail stations were numerous including a sushi chef. People raved about everything, especially the sushi and dumplings. The dinner was amazing - get the mango chicken!

Main Event worked so closely with us on the menu and we'd recommend them to anyone. Terrific day.

I probably wouldn't use them again but their quality of food was good. Their service and who runs it - not so much.

Very responsive, very caring, very professional, good food but too much; our only disappointment was that the salad did not look and taste like the one we expected from the tasting, which was beyond fabulous. It was good just not quite....but everything else was superb, the hors d'oeuvres, the signature drink, the ideas, the choices, the sampler dessert and the treats passed at the end. Steve was delightful to work with and we would recommend him for another kosher event though we probably will have a nonkosher wedding next! He also found our venue which was the biggest hassle we faced, so we thank him profusely from the bottom of our hearts!

First and foremost, I have to say the food was absolutely excellent. I couldn't imagine better quality - amazing presentation and delicious. It's the main thing we're getting compliments about. Everyone has been raving about the food - and this was with us getting the basics, without splurging on too many extras. So we're happy. As happy as a person could be having to spend absurd amounts to have a wedding be kosher. I guess they're not overpriced as compared with other quality kosher caterers, just wish this wasn't such a prevalent issue. The only problem we had was with the responsiveness/professionalism. I deducted points for over-responsiveness. I was very interested in someone else's description of someone named Martin, because it described our person as well - except his name was Bruce. We also had met with someone else prior, so Bruce was new to us on the day of the wedding. I feel bad saying it because he tried SO HARD to be nice, but it ended up being pushy and a little bit creepy. Maybe it would just be good to mention ahead of time that we will come to you if we have an issue, and please don't feel the need to check in with us quite so much. I'm sure there are other couples who would love that level of responsiveness, we just thought it was too much. It was almost like having a bodyguard - which means he's in a few too many pictures. That said, food really was awesome.

My husband and I used main event for our wedding. We did not have food after fasting all day in the yichud room. We had to ask someone to bring us food until it finally arrived cold. Most of the hors d'oeuvres that we ordered were not passed around. Our wedding cake was given to only a small part of our guests. We never saw the charge caterer during the event and we did not receive any left overs that were promised before. We are very disappointed and think they are overpriced for the quality of their service and mainly dishonest with their customers.

We met with the caterer a week before our wedding and he was extremely knowledgeable, displaying his 20+ years of experience in the business. Frankly, he knew more about how the wedding would go down than our planner did. The maitre de that he had in place on the day of was unobtrusive and helpful. And most importantly, the food was delicious and we got rave reviews. We went with a lighter menu since our meal was at noon on a blistering summer day, and the food options really matched the season, which was important to me. My husband and I didn't get to eat during the meal, but Main Event packed up a bunch of stuff for us to eat later in the hotel room, so I can vouch that it was tasty. We ate the leftovers for the next week!
