My wedding was July 16th, 2016 and I am an OCD bride that wants the best for a good price, I mean who doesn't. Norfolk Catering Company was it for me! Ted and his team gave me everything and more! Ted made me feel like he has known me for years and treated me like I was family. His staff was professional and so sweet. We had cocktail hour and a buffet and everything looked and tasted so good. I will call Ted for any catering needs in the future. Don't pass up this company you will not be disappointed!

A BRIDES WORST NIGHTMARE!!!! When we first went in to meet Ted he seemed quite nice. We put down our $500 non refundable deposit, made out our menu, and it all went downhill from there. It was a constant battle trying to get a hold of him, via email AND phone calls. I should have sucked it up, lost the deposit and found another catering company. But he was the cheapest I could find that offered servers, dishes, linens and a bar tender, so we stuck with him. A MONTH BEFORE the wedding I gave him our headcount of 130 people, and we went over my entire menu again just to double check. He said everything was on schedule. I called him a week before the wedding and we went over everything one more time, and dropped of our final payment. Day of the wedding and everything went to shit... I had ordered 3 different "main" appetizers, and a cheese and fruit tray. I only got 2 main appetizers, and one was so dry it was like eating a ball of sawdust. And we ran out of sawdust balls within 20 minutes of cocktail HOUR!! The servers actually served the food to my guests for portion control I'm guessing and WE RAN OUT OF FOOD!!! I paid for 130 people, and only 122 showed up, so how the hell did that happen??? Not to mention the food that was served wasn't hot AT ALL!!! And then they waited for a tray to be empty before going back into the kitchen and getting more. So my guests were standing around waiting to get food. One of the caterers made the comment LOUD ENOUGH THAT 3 DIFFERENT PEOPLE TOLD ME "the bill has been paid, so it doesn't matter" WTF IS THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN????? And of course they didn't clean up after themselves in the kitchen. The venu called me the next day and asked us to come back and clean, take the trash out. And to top it off... One of the caterers YELLED AT MY MOTHER!! Are you effing serious?? Yelling at the mother of the BRIDE!!! DO NOT GIVE THIS COMPANY YOUR MONEY!!! BIGGEST REGRET I HAVE MADE IN YEARS!!!

We absolutely loved working with Ted and his staff. The food was fresh and delicious, so much so that someone took all of our chicken, our guests loved the food and professionalism of the staff. I personally love Ted because he focused on my wedding as if I was the only client on his calendar. I've recommended him to someone else already. Thank you for helping us create a beautiful wedding day and we will be in soon to enjoy more selections from your menu. Definitely worth every penny! ! Thanks again Ted

Hiring Norfolk Catering Company as our caterer was easily the worst decision we made in regards to our wedding. We were unbelievably disappointed We went with them because they seemed great- small business, family owned, say they'll take care of everything, they want the bride to be relaxed. Well, basically Norfolk Catering Company WAS the source of all my wedding stress. After our initial meeting, Ted never seemed to know who we were. He kept telling me I owed him money even after he had deposited my checks. I would have to send screenshots of the check being deposited from my online bank statement. This happened multiple times. I would wait weeks to get responses from emails and I honestly don't know if he checked emails from our coordinator. If we had not had our wedding coordinators, we would have been absolutely screwed the day of. They got there about 2pm for a 6pm ceremony, but they were supposed to help set up chairs, tables, centerpieces. Nope. They pretty much acted like since our coordinators were there, they didn't have to do anything. They even left before our coordinators that evening and didn't help break down ANYTHING. We got charged money from our venue for not having it cleaned, which Norfolk Catering Company was supposed to do. I honestly have so much more I could write, but those are just the highlights.

TLDR; good food, horrible service, think twice unless you want to be seriously stressed out during the entire process.

I can not give a good enough review of these guys! First, the food was delicious. Great flavors and they even made us a gluten-free chocolate dessert for some of our wedding guests. Their Greek donuts were a big hit at our reception as well! More than just great food, their service was off the charts. Ted and his guys were respectful, professional, but also give a warm almost family-like vibe. They have a take charge attitude and don't let the bride (or the family) worry about anything. They are very prepared and interact well with the guests. They are not intrusive when they are serving or setting out the food. We just loved working with them and can't wait to head to their restaurant soon just to get some more of their good food.
