First and foremost, Goodrich is fantastic to work with; Lauren was very prompt in her communication with us, but more importantly she listened and accommodated exactly what we requested. Lauren made a point to visit our venue 2 weeks prior to our wedding to make sure everything would go smoothly when they arrived. The food was great and the staff very friendly. Boxing the leftovers up in the insulated picnic basket was just icing on the cake. I look forward to working with them again and recommend others to use Goodrich Gourmet.

What can i say about Goodrich Catering ?!? Hands down they are amazing. I worked with Lauren Goodrich to plan out my catering. She made the process very stress free for me. She dealt with my multiple different menu changes to help me find the perfect menu for my wedding. She worked directly with my venue in coordinating the time she could arrive to set up eliminating the unwanted stress of me being a middleman between the two. She returns all emails or calls in a timely manner, she just amazing!!!!

Now for the food! Cheh Josh prepared the best wedding meal i have every had. My guest couldn't get enough of the brushetta and shrimp grits and all of the other hors 'doeuvres we had! The staff were bringing out the food very quickly that you didn't have to search for them for the food. For the main course we had tilapia with a red pepper sauce and chicken marsala. The tilapia was to die for and sooo many people keep asking how he mad the fish taste so lemony. The marsala was amazing as well. They use a diffrent method other then the dark marsala wine which gives the recipie a whole other outlook.

Overall i was amazed by how great Goodrich was and i would recommend them to anyone looking for a caterer. I wouldn't hestiate in using them again!

Lauren and Dale of Goodrich Gourmet Catering are the BEST! My daughter was getting married in Virginia and her Mother and I live in Florida. This meant coordinating everything over the phone. Lauren was prompt with all quotes, emails and phone calls. A lot of our calls took place outside the conventional business hours and days. We went through about four revisions on our event menu before we finally decided. Lauren was extremely patient with our requests and concerns and very accommodating. On the day of the wedding her team was on time and prepared. Our venue consisted of 110 guests. Lauren and team kept everything flowing. We never ran out of food and numerous comments from our guest on the quality! From the bacon wrapped scallops to the awesome Mac & Cheese bar everything was delicious and hot! At one point we ran out of White Wine... Lauren came and asked if I would like her to get more to which we said "Yes"! It seemed like only a few minutes had passed and the bar was flowing white and red again. They have an eclectic menu that will rock your taste buds! You owe it to yourself to call Lauren and Dale for any of your catering needs. With Goodrich Gourmet you get service and quality that are both off the charts.
Thanks team Goodrich!

Goodrich Gourmet is THE best caterer I encountered. The food is FANTASTIC. We used them for my wedding and I was so impressed. They worked with my budget without complaint and ran with my vision. The tasting was a fun experience and they were really open to all of our questions about how we could adjust the food. They provided all the dishes and glasses and utensils and linens, making it REALLY easy to get everything settled since I didn't have to have a ton of different vendors for it all. They were prompt in getting us the proposals and keeping us updated/checking things with us and very professional while being comfortable and friendly to work with. Lauren is really sweet and really good at her job, I absolutely loved working with her. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone looking for a caterer, not just for weddings!

I could not have ask for more! Goodrich catering was PERFECT and exactly what we wanted. Easy to work with, great at communication, delivered exactly what was promised and it was all so delicious! I wish I could have them cater my dinner at home every night. :)

They even checked on me (the bride) during the wedding to make sure I was getting enough of the food I wanted and if I needed anything else. At the end of the night they gave us a picnic basket filled with each type of food to take to our hotel room with us. I highly recommend the buffalo chicken triangles. That was my favorite!

We cannot thank Goodrich Gourmet enough for all they did for us! Lauren was so flexible and easy to work with. I honestly believe our day wouldn't have been the same without ALL of their assistance and direction! Lauren and her staff truly went above and beyond to make sure everything was in it's place, and to make sure that we had an opportunity to actually eat. Several of our guests even asked us who they were so they could get their contact info. I highly recommend Goodrich Gourmet (and Lauren herself) and their quality of work to anyone looking for a fun, focused, flexible, and overall great caterer who delivers not only amazing food but a wonderful experience!

We could not have been happier to have found Goodrich Gourmet and have them cater our wedding. After our initial catering meetings with vendors from our venue's suggested caterer list, we had not yet picked a caterer and came across Goodrich Gourmet. I sent an email to the address listed on their website and promptly received response from Lauren to set up a tasting. The tasting was complimentary and were welcomed to Goodrich's kitchen in Richmond, where we were seated and presented with a tasting menu. Chef Dale was upfront with us saying that he had never made empanadas we requested, but was going to give them a go and presented us with three different delicious samples to try. We also had not planned on having a salad at our wedding, but were given a strawberry summer salad as part of the tasting. It was so good, we added it to our menu on the spot! Lauren talked us through the pricing and necessary linens, silverware, and glassware throughout the tasting, matching styles and colors to fit our wedding theme and preferences. When Lauren sent us the quote the following day, we were floored that the quote was right in our budget range!

Lauren contacted me a couple of weeks before the wedding to do a site visit. I had never heard of this before and wasn't familiar with it, but it proved to be very helpful. We traveled to the venue site to walkthrough where things would be set up, floorplan for tables, where the bar would be set up, etc. Our venue was about 2.5 hours away from where we lived, so it we had to do some quick planning to set this up, but Lauren was very accommodating.

The day of the wedding, we had a miscommunication that had us not having tablecloths for our event. I called Lauren and she said no problem. Tablecloths were procured for us and set up for dinner, crisis averted! At the end of the wedding, we were left with a nice basket and note from Lauren and the Goodrich team, along with all the leftovers! Highly Recommend. Thank you!

Goodrich Gourmet was a fantastic choice as the caterer for our wedding! Dale and Lauren were always attentive to our questions and responded back very quickly to any and all questions we had leading up to the big day. I have heard stories about how difficult caterers can be, but I wouldn't have known it based on the great service we received. Their prices were very reasonable, especially based on the other caterers we looked at. When you combine that with the top notch service and professionalism we received I doubt we could have picked a better caterer. The food was wonderful and our guests had nothing but great things to say about it. With only 6 days until our wedding day I realized I had forgotten to order hor d'oeuvres and asked Lauren if we could still place an order, and of course they were more than happy to help us despite the short notice. Thanks again Dale, Lauren, and the rest of your professional staff for helping to make our wedding day the best day of our lives!
