Goodrich Gourmet gave us the absolute best service that I could have hoped for during the planning process, and on our wedding day. We picked them because we needed a special menu- my husband is vegetarian and I don't do well with dairy. So we were very worried that we would have a very hard time finding someone to meet our dietary needs without compromising on taste or creativeness of the food offerings. I met Lauren, the owner, at a Bridal Show, and she assured me that we could sit down with her chef and come up with something that would work. We decided on a Japanese/hibachi style dinner, and we were very impressed at the tasting- even my parents who were skeptical about not having meat or dairy. Goodrich Gourmet also provided our day-of coordinator, our cupcakes, our rentals- table linens, table décor, extra chairs, tables, and lighting including set-up and breakdown- as well as five event staff members. Our guests really enjoyed the food offerings, and the catering team did an amazing job during event breakdown- it was all pretty much done in 30 minutes- which really helped my family out. I have nothing but positive things to say about working with Goodrich Gourmet. Their team was very supportive during my planning process, answering my many emails trying to sort out all the details and make sure we had thought of everything. I especially was grateful for Lauren's ability to calm my worries and ensure me that everything would be ok. That meant the world to me. Consider using them for your event; you won't regret it!

Goodrich Gourmet catered our wedding at Fairview Farm! I couldn't be more pleased with the Goodrich Gourmet team! Working with Lauren at Goodrich was such a pleasure! She was extremely helpful, flexible and professional all throughout the planning process in meeting with me for tastings, for my walk through, and helping create a delicious menu for my big day! My guests absolutely loved the food and their excellent services- and are still raving about it! Everyone on staff was very professional and attentive. I was very impressed with their services- Lauren asked us prior to the reception what type of drink/food we prefer and had it all set up at our place setting for the Bride and Groom! Another unique thing about GG is the personable gift for our honeymoon was placed in our car prior to leaving the reception which was a picnic basket with a variety of leftovers for the wedding night! GG provided all the place settings, napkins, table clothes for cocktail tables, and had all the details included making it very stress-free for the Bride in the planning process! I will def. use Goodrich again for other events & HIGHLY recommend their services for any event! You will not be disappointed!

EVEN IF YOU ARE GETTING MARRIED IN CHARLOTTESVILLE, BOOK WITH GOODRICH. We are from Richmond but got married in Charlottesville. The vendors there are just absurdly expensive. Goodrich is much more affordable and goes to C'ville for weddings all the time. Lauren Goodrich was our contact through the whole process - she was the most organized and professional of all of our vendors (and I loved all of our vendors!). She has an answer for everything, asks all the right questions, takes notes, and totally takes control of the situation. And, WE ATE at our wedding!! My husband really wanted a couple appetizers but missed them since we were taking pictures. When we sat down for dinner there was a special plate of apps set aside for us. About every 10 minutes someone from the wait staff came to check on us and brought us absolutely anything we needed. They were so attentive, I have no idea how they had that much time to focus on us while serving the other guests. The food was amazing. My in-laws hired a fancy C'ville caterer for the rehearsal dinner that cost way more than Goodrich and seriously underdelivered. Everyone raved about our food, served on-time, family style, and all the dishes were amazing. Just book them and you will be able to completely relinquish your worries about the food. They will deliver. OH and they sent us home with a picnic basket of leftovers which my husband and I devoured later that night.

Lauren and her staff were absolutely wonderful. From the time we did our tasting until the end of wedding everything was just perfect. The food was fantastic and we got lots of good feedback from the guest. The staff was wonderful. Nice, professional, accommodating. They go out of their way to make your wedding day everything you want it to be. I would highly recommend them. Lauren is easy to work with and very flexible. We added lots of little things as time went on and she was always accommodating. I really can't say enough good things about our experience with Goodrich Gourmet.

My wife and I had interviewed many different catering companies, non of which gave us such an amazing "at home" experience as Goodrich Gourmet. We went in for our tasting and we were completely blown away with the food! We had two amazing people assisting us throughout the entire process (Lauren and Amanda), and they were always quick to answer questions, assist with last minute changes, and their professionalism was beyond our expectations. The staff at the ceremony asked me if there were any guests needing assistance, to include parents, grandparents, and wheelchair bound people. Once we pointed them out to the staff member, they specifically catered to them... bringing them their dish, drinks, and dessert. What an experience!
At the end of the night, we were sent home with an AMAZING picnic basket full of food.
I would HIGHLY recommend Goodrich to anyone looking for a caterer, and I hope that I can work with them again in the future.

All of the guests loved the food and couldn't say enough positive things about the company. I would hire them again in an instant!

ABSOLUTELY amazing! I am still getting comments from guests on how amazing the food was! We had the herb chicken and tilapia. THE BEST TILAPIA I HAVE EVER HAD! I couldn't have dreamed of a better caterer! We did not have a wedding planner, and we hadn't made a timeline, Lauren made it for us and took it upon herself to send it to all of our other vendors to make sure everyone was on the same page. The day of, 3 hours before the event, we realized we were 3 tables short...my maid of honor called Lauren and asked (thinking the answer would be no) if there was any way that they could bring them to us, without hesitation she said yes and if we needed anything else, to not hesitate to call. Those are only a couple of the many examples. Their table set ups were absolutely beatiful. We did 'Family Style' and it was perfect. No long lines for the buffet, and everyone got to try what they wanted and as much of it as they wanted. They truly care about each and everyone of their clients. I would recommend everyone and anyone to them. Thank you, again, Goodrich Gourmet, you helped make our day so much more perfect!
