BEFORE WE SERVE ANY FOOD, WE SERVE YOU.

Attention to detail is one of the most important aspects of catering. We know how stressful planning an event can be. That's why we take all measures to put our clients at ease, showing them, time and time again, that they are in good hands. Each client is assigned a dedicated and knowledgeable event professional to provide the most attentive service possible. This ensures you a pleasurable experience, culminating in a memorable affair.

Our account executives work on each event independently, delivering custom-developed proposals to suit the specific requirements of the individual client. In this way, menus are always uniquely crafted and each event takes on a style of its own. We feel this individual attention to the client and their event is one of the hallmarks and largely responsible for the referrals that have grown the business.

Well Dunn! has been welcomed in every important public and private party site in the area for a wide array of social and corporate events. Whether it is a product launch, Mizvah, holiday event, charity gala or wedding reception, our entire event team is well experienced and able to assist you in planning every detail. Read less

We worked with Yulia and the Well Dunn team for my daughter's November 7th wedding and were very pleased with the entire process. It was important to my daughter that the food was great and not your typical wedding fare and Welll Dunn did not disappoint. Yulia was proactive with suggestions, detail oriented, responsive to calls and emails and always professional. Thank you for helping to make my daughter's wedding "perfect"!

I worked with Rhiannon on the food for my wedding 10.11.15. She was a true pleasure to work with. Very accommodating of my and my husband's dietary restrictions and tastes for food. Everyone loved the food, from the lemonade before the ceremony to the appetizers to the main course. I also appreciated the server assigned to my husband and I-- I have heard stories about couple not eating on their wedding day, but we got to taste pretty much everything and got a hearty to-go box that came in very handy later that night. The service was excellent; my only concern was people at tables were asked what they wanted, rather than what they ordered, so choices were switched last minute (as I am sure happens). However, everyone was fed and happy by the time the dancing started. I had many guests ask who did the catering and was glad to say Well Dunn proudly.

It is hard to say enough about Madeline and the Well Dunn team. Quality food was extremely important to us and they did not disappoint, we have gotten a ton of comments since the wedding that they changed peoples perceptions of what wedding food could be. It was also important to my family to provide their own alcohol and the Madeline was more then happy to work with us. The staff at the event was exceptional and met all of our requests. Above and beyond Alex who was our personal server was incredible, during photos and the cocktail hour he made sure that we always had a drink and had our own hors d'oeuvre's. We really can't say enough about the entire process with Well Dunn.

Rhiannon Swanson of Well Dunn Catering was personable, detail oriented, and great to work with in every way. She spent time with us on every stage of the planning process and made our wedding day exactly how we wanted it. Her effort in making our wedding day special exceeded our expectations. We used a space, Epic Yoga, where we had to bring in all the equipment. She coordinated with all of our vendors and worked especially well with our planner, Rebecca Sparks at Rex & Regina Events, who was also amazing. The look of our wedding was exactly what we wanted. She had great suggestions for table, chair and linen rental. The food was amazing. Many of our guests said that it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding. We used ACE beverage for alcohol at Rhiannon’s suggestion and were very happy with the bar and drink selection. Rhiannon had great suggestions for drinks as well as food. Guests raved about how friendly and attentive the staff were. Every detail of our wedding was executed perfectly. Our wedding day was even better than we had imagined and we have Rhiannon at Well Dunn Catering to thank for that.

We worked with Yulia, who is the most prepared, professional, and reliable event coordinator I have ever met. We didn't have a wedding planner, so she went the extra mile and made sure that our plan was thorough and that we didn't miss any detail. She was always responsive to even the smallest request for information or assistance.

Every detail of Well Dunn's preparation and execution the day of the wedding was perfect. Not just good or great... perfect. I had to step back a few times and just take it all in. The entire staff made sure the venue was prepared well ahead of time, and they did a fantastic job. Many details we didn't even notice until looking at pictures in the days after the wedding.

The waitstaff was extremely attentive and courteous to everyone. We had a server, Sonya, assigned specifically to us. When I couldn't find anyone else in the wedding party after the post-ceremony photos, Sonya helped me out, all the time offering me drinks and hors d'vores.
Many people told us stories of the bride and groom not getting a chance to enjoy their meal at their wedding. Well dunn made sure that didn't happen to us. We were at a sweetheart table, and they served us first. They even brought out our entrees well in advance of the other tables. They made that suggestion so that we could socialize at the guests' tables while they were still eating and we were finished. It was a great idea. One of many suggestions by their staff that evening that were extremely helpful in making the event so enjoyable for all.

Speaking of the food... it was phenomenal. Sometimes you'll hear meals at weddings referred to as "wedding food." It's not a compliment. Usually that means dry, overcooked meat and fish. Several guests complimented us on the meal saying, "that was NOT wedding food!"

Well Dunn deserves the absolute highest praise. My only regret in leaving this review is that I've run out of space, and there are not enough stars in the ranking system.

Well Dunn was our caterer for our wedding and they absolutely blew my mind. I cannot even put to words how great they were to work with throughout the whole wedding planning process. We personally worked with Yulia, and she is as top-notch as it gets. I honestly do not know how I could've gone through the planning process without her. Yulia was so incredibly patient and always willing to help. She was so incredibly responsive as well. I have to admit, I was probably a total nightmare to work with because I could not make up my mind about anything and I was literally making decisions two days before the wedding--but you know what? Yulia followed through, she executed a flawless wedding. She absolutely KILLED it. I wouldn't be surprised if she's eventually going to be running the place.

The wedding day, Yulia was so bright and lively. The staff, were impeccable and their service was unmatched. The staff were so professional, friendly, and seemed so happy to be there!

The food. I can't stop talking about the food. I honestly think Steve Dunn needs to come out with a cookbook or restaurant because the food was amazing. I kid you not, at least 30 people came up to me and told me that the food was the best wedding food they had ever had. And, most of my friends have been to at least 20+ in the past 3 years.

You cannot go wrong with Well Dunn. They are THE best in town. I can't wait to work with them again!

We love Yulia at Well Dunn!!!! She is just the best. Amazing all the things she can juggle! We didn't have a coordinator, so she was a huge help. I didn't worry about a thing the day of the wedding; Yulia and her staff were always there to get me to where I was supposed to be and keep me hydrated and fed (important!). I give her all the credit for it going smoothly. Of course the food was delicious too! Thank you times a thousand!!! xoxo

Well Dunn did a wonderful job catering our July wedding at Woodend Sanctuary. We worked primarily with Yulia who was amazing. She's such a professional and knew the venue really well. Throughout the planning process, she was always quick to respond, she listened to our ideas and requests, and asked questions about important things we never would have thought of. We put a lot of thought into selecting our caterer since we knew they would be managing so many things on the wedding day- rentals, set up, event flow- in addition to the food and drinks. Yulia made us feel very confident that she was paying attention to our needs and would be responsive and available in the weeks and days leading up to the wedding. She and her staff totally delivered on the wedding day. We didn't have a wedding planner and thanks to Yulia (and our DJ- who Yulia recommended) we didn't need one because they coordinated so well.
And, very importantly, months later people are still telling me how much they enjoyed the food! We did a southern inspired buffet which was delicious.

Well Dunn catered our wedding and they were fantastic. Natalie was our rep and she was so easy to work with and so very accommodating. The food was absolutely fantastic. Not much else to say-they were perfect and the guests are still raving about the food. Such a great choice of caterers for our event. I've been to hundreds of catered events and the food is rarely anywhere near as good as it was at our wedding. The milkshakes were a nice touch!

Well Dunn is the best! They provided delicious food, excellent service, and were very responsive to all our needs and requests. Madeline was our sales representative. She was a delight to work with. She set up an hors d'oeuvres tasting when we were still considering our catering options. The food was so delicious and Madeline was such a great representative that we decided to go with the company. Madeline then set up an awesome full menu tasting a few months before the wedding. She was very flexible in helping us craft our menu. We learned right before our wedding that Madeline was sadly leaving the company, but she did a great job transitioning us to Rhiannon, who managed our wedding and did a wonderful job.

Well Dunn is the best! They provided delicious food, excellent service, and were very responsive to all our needs and requests. Madeline was our sales representative. She was a delight to work with. She set up an hors d'oeuvres tasting when we were still considering our catering options. The food was so delicious and Madeline was such a great representative that we decided to go with the company. Madeline then set up an awesome full menu tasting a few months before the wedding.
