Wedding date: July 12, 2015 at Branford House, Groton, CT (This is written by the bride (my daughter) Leanne Greenman

First off I would just like to applaud the food quality of your catering service. It was amazing and done very well.

The reason for this email is that I would like to address some issues with your head chef of the evening, Lawrence. Towards the end of the night we received several complaints about his behavior. My father went into the back office to find Beth, the woman in charge of the wedding venue, crying and in pain after interaction with Lawrence when she suggested they get another rack for the chairs because she thought the chairs were stacked too high, and was afraid they would fall, in which he responded with "Beth, how long have you been working here?" she said 3 years, and he replied "well then you should know what you are doing" in a rude tone. Then he proceeded to move the rack of chairs while Beth was still standing directly behind them and rolled the rack right over her foot, injuring her toe even for her to be crying in the office. Her toe was swollen and red. This is just completely unacceptable.

Secondly, my husband's sister said when she came out of the bathroom, Lawrence started hitting on her and making her feel uncomfortable.

Third, he was cursing in front of guests, making them feel uncomfortable and pretty much having no shame about it.

Fourth, he walked straight into my husband in a doorway in passing, more than likely accidentally, knocking him aside without saying a word.

Furthermore, most of the staff seemed, over-worked, unenthusiastic and whenever a guest had a question or concern, they were either treated rudely or shortly.

I know you were only there briefly, but I find this behavior completely unacceptable considering the amount of money we have paid your company for your services. Your food was exceptional, but the service was not.

The bartenders were splendid.

Sweet Relief Catering was fantastic food for a very reasonable price (other vendors that we sampled with wanted double or even more). Eric was a little difficult to reach after booking, due to other events, but he was responsive the month before the event and he ensured that the food for our wedding was a success. Eric handles himself like a serious businessman, but my experience of him was that he is also a nice guy. I would recommend that people check Sweet Relief out!

We strongly recommend Sweet Relief. Eric and his team did great work. We had several meetings with Eric, and he was responsive to our concerns and gave us some ideas for how to fix problems. He was also flexible in terms of accommodating changes to our plan and number of guests. The food was good. The bar service was very good according to our guests: we had some fairly late changes to the drink menu, but these were taken care of with not much trouble. Over the course of planning the wedding, we realized the caterer is really the vendor at the heart of the whole thing, and so it’s important to find one that isn’t going to drive you crazy and will get everything done in a low-key way. We definitely felt like Sweet Relief accomplished all of that, and we’re thankful we found them.

We just had our wedding and Sweet Relief Catering did a fantastic job. The food was well prepared and was very budget friendly. Everything was delicious, from the appetizers to the main course. Eric was very accommodating to our special requests. It was great being able to tap into his 15 years of wedding catering knowledge. The servers were awesome , friendly and efficient. Every member of the staff. including the owner, helped to make sure it was all flawless. Thank you to Sweet Relief for helping to make this such a memorable night!

The people of Sweet Relief were so nice and easy to work with. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. They made the day special for us abs the best part was they came in, did their job, and didn't need much attention from us that day!

People really loved our food which was a big compliment for us. These guys were great. Eric is extremely professional and really wants everything to be perfect. I didn't get to taste all of my food (I recommend having them set aside to-go boxes for you) because of taking so many pictures, but I heard they loved it. It's awesome when men come up to you and say that they came away satisfied and didn't have to plan where they were going to eat afterward because they didn't like the food.
