Thank you Sterling Affair for helping to make our wedding celebration perfect! From start to finish, Sterling Affair was the perfect choice...easy to work with, responsive, flexible...and out of this world food! Rachael was great to work with, fitting this out-of-town couple in for our tasting during the busy holiday season and helping us pick the perfect menu (including a few s'mores-themed desserts instead of a cake). All of our guests raved about how good the food was and how impressed they were that each and every scallop served during cocktail hour was cooked perfectly. We selected three stations for the main dinner and were so happy with our choices...there were tons of Sterling Affair staff on hand to make sure that everyone moved through the lines quickly and that there was plenty of delicious, piping hot food on hand. The sushi, skirt steak, mac and cheese, and pad thai were the crowd favorites, but everything was delicious. A fantastic meal for our perfect night!

I had heard great things about Sterling Affair before hiring them for my wedding, and was beyond thrilled when they exceeded my expectations. Our event manager, Rachael, took us through the entire process. The tasting was incredible and made choosing tough. We went with sea bass and filet as our entree options, and both we cooked to perfection according to our guests. Rachael coordinated so many of our other vendors including our photographer, florist and entertainment, and took responsibility for making sure everything was in place for our bid day. And she nailed it! She was on-hand throughout the entire event, running it better than the wedding planner we hired. A particularly nice touch Sterling Affair offered was including a wedding cake in our package that I was able to custom design (look, flavors, shape, etc) with their in-house pastry chef. It was very personal to our wedding theme, and it tasted amazing!! If food is as important to your wedding as it was to ours, you absolutely must hire Sterling Affair. Everything they did for us was beyond phenomenal. It was comforting to be in such good hands for such an important event. Thank you Rachael and everyone at Sterling!!

Oh Sterling where to begin,

We first fell in love with your food at the tasting and couldn’t wait for the Wedding day to try it all again [we did try and get Christine to make up some sort of event so we could come back for another tasking but she was having none of it haha]. The food during the cocktail hour was as great as we remembered it, guests were raving about the Brussels sprout leaves, Hubby couldn’t get enough of the prawns and I basically loved EVERYTHING. On to the meal itself, WOW!! The soup/salad combo was excellent, the main courses were out of this world, and of the plates I saw they were all clear, not a scrap of food left on any of them > speaks for itself. And the puddings up on the terrace, I’m so glad we did this as opposed to a sit down dessert, and all our guests loved it. I think the favourite was the oreo milkshake :-) you’d think that’d be enough food for us but no, we still had our late night snacks to come. You guys did us proud with the haggis balls, they were amazing. The pulled pork was to die for and the mac&cheese spring rolls we’re ace.

It cannot be said there was not enough food. It’s a small gripe I have with weddings here in Scotland, you always seem to be hungry and I didn’t want that for our wedding and you guys did not disappoint, you were constantly coming round with food, I was starting to feel guilty by the end, I was just so stuffed I physically couldn’t eat anymore, much to my disappointment because believe me, I wanted to.

You may think this is biased, seeing as it was our wedding, but please take this as an unbiased view that it was the best wedding meal we’ve EVER had.

Let’s not forget about the cake, not only was it stunningly beautiful (it was everything I imagined and more) but it also tasted sooooo good.

We’ll dream about the day when we get to use your services again.

Thank You

I am a florist and event planner, and chose Sterling Affair as my caterer, and it was the best decision EVARRRR! Peter was able to embrace my somewhat unorthodox ideas, and even take them to a better level! I did more of a cocktail dance party with stations and informal partial seating, which only works when it is handled properly by the caterer. The menu was exquisite, the service was beyond attentive and professional, and Peter was such a delight to work with. I really cannot say enough great things about my experience with this ultra professional company, who also has a very warm heart, and cares deeply about each event...ALL of my guests said it was the best food they ever had at a wedding and EVERYONE asked who is the caterer. THANK YOU PETER!!!!!!!

Our wedding at the New York Academy of Medicine was wonderful, JP from Sterling Affair worked with us to plan the day exactly as we hoped. Our guests loved the food, the venue was beautiful and JP thought of all the little things I didn't realize we'd need (a room for me to get ready, someone assigned to help us with cards people gave us and prepare a plate of food for us as we were running around greeting our guests). Thank you so much for helping make our reception spectacular!

Sterling Affair did an AMAZING job with our wedding. The food was a huge hit and all we heard was good things all night. They were open to different and food options. A huge hit with all of the guests were the homemade spinach gnocchi. Even my relatives from visiting from Italy raved about them! My personal favorite was the braised short ribs! YUM. They also did our cake which was stunning! We got lots of compliments on that and can't wait to defrost the top for our first anniversary. Because they did our cake instead of doing a full dessert we went with a selection of treats and cookies that they put on the tables so everyone could pick and choose. They tasted fantastic and were a great sweet bite! A personal favorite is the s'mores! However the rest of my guests raved about the cheesecake pops!

Working with Peter and his staff was a pleasure and I was so happy with our choice!

Sterling Affair was absolutely phenomenal! Our catering manager, Christina, did a fabulous job for our wedding. So many people commented on how delicious the food was...best food they ever had at a wedding. It wasn't cheap, but I'm a big foodie and I knew going in that's where the majority of the budget would go. The tasting alone was an excellent experience and everything we ate on the wedding day was just as good. I cannot say how pleased I was with how everything turned out. They covered all the bases. People even commented on how attentive the wait staff was. My favorite quote of the night "The scallops were cooked PER-FECT-LY!!!! DO YOU SEE HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE HERE?!" and again a comment on our guest book "The scallops were as perfect as you two." haha Thank you Sterling Affair!!!

The first wedding we saw take place at Reckson was in August. We were so impressed that despite all of the action, the head honchos from the caterer were completely relaxed and walking us around. We went for a tasting in August and the food was outstanding! We went through a few changes of hands with Sterling, which was a little frustrating. Overall, everything worked out beautifully. Of course, there were a couple things that weren’t exactly what we expected! We didn’t eat, but we heard the food was GREAT! We had cupcakes instead of a cake, and despite asking 3 times for them to pack some up for us, they didn’t. We addressed this, and they are making us a batch to have and were very apologetic.
