White House Catering was on our wedding venue's preferred vendor list, and they were the first people I contacted in regards to food. I talked to several other Richmond catering companies, and they were far and beyond the most responsive, professional, and best value. Andrew was our main contact, and I cannot say enough great things about him. He was so knowledgeable and helped me narrow down my food choices. They do not have a set menu list and let you (literally) pick and type of food you want, so it can be overwhelming. We decided to go with a BBQ southern comfort food theme and it was all delicious!! I had to plan the wedding from 2,000 miles away and never had a chance to meet them in person until a month before the wedding. Even so, I always felt confident they had everything covered. We decided to also use their venue and catering for the rehearsal dinner, and the night went flawlessly. All of our guests at the dinner and the wedding the next night kept saying how much they loved the food, and the waitstaff was so professional. Andrew made sure that we had our dinner at our seats as soon as our first dance was over so we could get food in us before we had to go great all our guests. They also don't charge for cake cutting, and boxed my new husband and I up some of the food so we could eat it later that night in our hotel room (which was great because we were starving!). They also boxed up all leftovers from the wedding for free, and we took it back to the hotel where the after party was, and our guests were able to eat a late dinner while partying. I would absolutely use WHC for any of my future catering needs, and would recommend them immediately to anyone planning a wedding. They are the best in Richmond

We had our wedding reception at The Old City Bar which was catered by White House Catering and we cannot say enough wonderful things about them. From the start David was very accommodating to our wishes to have the menu include some of our favorites like ceviche and scallops. David and his team run an excellent business and were always very quick to respond to my calls and emails. On the day of the wedding I was a little nervous about getting everything set up before my hair/makeup appt. at 11am but this was certainly not an issue. Bill was tasked to work our wedding and was there from start (8am) to finish (after 10pm) and was a absolutely amazing. He tended every need and more, extremely profession and obvious that he has abundant experience and knows how to run a great event. He helped us during set up with the flow of the room and what he had seen work (and not work) and during the reception (and after) we had numerous friends/family that attended tell us how excellent the timing of the food and service was. I would highly recommend White House Catering! Thank you David and Bill for making our reception run so smoothly and for the wonderful food and service!

White House Catering did and excellent job providing the food for our rehearsal and reception. They helped us every step of the way when planning our menus and were available to us at the drop of a dime. I loved working with everyone at White House Catering and Old City Bar is a beautiful place for a rehearsal as well! On the wedding day Andrew made sure that everything ran smoothly and that Scott and I were satisfied with all of the food and beverages. Thank you all for everything you did for helping to make Scott and my wedding weekend a dream come true!

White House was one of the best decisions we made in our wedding planning process. The bang for our buck was incredible. More guests than I can count told us the macaroni and cheese was the best they had ever eaten! Christie, Andrew and David were all super flexible and open to our suggestions from the macaroni and cheese bar to a new vegetarian option (delicious stuffed peppers). Not to mention how nice they we were the entire time. Little things like enthusiastic and friendly communication went a long for my husband and me. We would recommend White House to anyone!

We were very happy with White House catering. We used them for both our rehearsal dinner (at Old City Bar, the venue that they own in Shockoe Bottom) as well as the main event (at Mankin Mansion). The food was excellent both nights. Everything came out the right temperature, it was very tasty, and the service was excellent. Our wedding was somewhat complicated, food-wise, because some of my family keeps kosher. So while we didn't have kosher food there, we did have three choices of entree (beef, fish, and vegetarian). The beef and fish were amazing; the vegetarian entree was pretty good. They were also very easy to deal with when doing the planning in the run-up to the big day.

We used WHC for our welcome reception, which had about 100 people. The food was amazing, the service was fantastic, and they catered very well to everything we wanted. We had a lot of dietary restrictions (gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, etc) and they made delicious food for everyone! They were very responsive during the planning process; I never had to wait more than a day for a phone call or email.

David, Andrew, Christy, and the rest of the staff at White House Catering are all amazing!!! Food is very important to us, so this was one of the first things we wanted to check off our list. We had a wonderful tasting with David, and quickly decided to use them as the caterer for our wedding. We also had our rehearsal dinner at The Old City Bar, which is their private venue location downtown. For the rehearsal dinner we had surf-and-turf with lamb chops and rockfish, which were both incredible!!! Our guests LOVED it. For the wedding, we had a mixture of items including crab cake sliders, pulled pork sliders, beef tenderloin carving station, several stationary and passed appetizers, and more. I can't even tell you how many compliments we had on the food at the wedding- our guests LOVED it! Andrew coordinated the staff, bartenders, etc the evening of the wedding and he did a truly fantastic job. We would most certainly recommend White House Catering to anyone!!

David and his staff were wonderful to work with from start to finish...tasting, rentals, great food and service! Our guests are still raving about the tender brisket and delicious appetizers. He even made my mother's homemade chocolate sauce recipe! When rain became evident we had to move the cocktail reception under the tent but it was done so professionally that we didn't even miss the original plan. We are still not sure how they prepared this sit down elegant meal from a small catering tent with a generator! Great job!!

Whitehouse catering is the easiest catering company to work with. When planning a wedding, you need vendors that you can count on and who have all the answers to your questions, and that is Whitehouse Catering. They were open to all my ideas or requests and always had excellent suggestions. Whenever I needed answers to questions they were so quick to respond. The staff is a true pleasure to work with and I HIGHLY recommend them for any wedding or event. Not only are they professional but their food is outstanding!

David,Christy, Andrew and the rest of the White House staff were phenomenal! From beginning to end they have been great to work with and were all super receptive to my questions and emails.
David did a great job customizing the menu for our reception of international travel. We even got to have some our favorite foods including monkfish,creme brûlée and sushi. Since the wedding on Saturday we have received numerous calls to tell us how delicious the food was and how the menu was so unique.
In addition to DELICIOUS food( best food at a wedding...people had ever had) David and his team provided exceptional service. My entire bridal party was fed before we were introduced. There was never an empty glass or a dirty plate in sight. Everyone was always smiling and they created special dishes for my groom and I. David and Christy even worked to coordinate the color of the bridesmaids dresses with the linens.
Whenever I emailed the team a question I received a response almost immediately and they let me tweak the menu and bar offerings throughout the process. I would recommend White House to anyone as the food and service at my wedding was exceptional.

David Napier and staff could not have been more helpful. We wanted reception food from around the globe, from countries the bride and groom had visited. David researched the countries and came up with a delicious menu. We had specific visual images in mind for the tables and the height of the builds on the tables and David and Andrew were very helpful. Every one of our guest who have spoken with us since the wedding have said that it was the "best wedding food ever!" There was plenty to eat and plenty of staff to serve.

The staff set up not only the food service but the cake area as well. We had a brunch and I got nothing but rave reviews on the novelty of the food. Unfortunately for us, only about half our guests shown up, The staff didn't miss a beat just packed the left overs all up for us!

I truly cannot say enough good things about White House Catering. Let me just begin by saying KUDOS to the staff. David, Christy, Nicki, and Andrew...all of them went above and beyond for me. Christy, especially, was extremely responsive. Sometimes she would respond within minutes to emails from my mother or me (and we probably sent hundreds). There was no request I made that they could not accommodate. Most impressive to me was their willingness to jump in and cover things, just to help out when other vendors would not. It was a breath of fresh air to work with this company. I experienced so much stress with other vendors and White House just sort of stepped in and relieved a lot of my initial frustrations with the wedding planning process.

The tasting went so well and the food on the night of the wedding was excellent!!! We got a lot of compliments on the menu. If you are considering a wedding caterer I would urge you to look no further. I met with several caterers and no one could meet my expectations like White House. Furthermore, it took weeks to get calls back and quotes from the other caterers I talked to. White House never took longer than 24 hours to respond to any request or question I had. I cannot imagine dealing with anyone else on something as important as the food because White House just made that part easy. Great quality and Superior customer service…I couldn’t ask for more. THANK YOU WHITE HOUSE CATERING FOR EVERYTHING!!!

I truly cannot say enough good things about White House Catering. Let me just begin by saying KUDOS to the staff. David, Christy, Nicki, and Andrew...all of them went above and beyond for me. Christy, especially, was extremely responsive. Sometimes she would respond within minutes to emails from my mother or me (and we probably sent hundreds). There was no request I made that they could not accommodate. Most impressive to me was their willingness to jump in and cover things, just to help out when other vendors would not. It was a breath of fresh air to work with this company. I experienced so much stress with other vendors and White House just sort of stepped in and relieved a lot of my initial frustrations with the wedding planning process.

We used White House Catering for a bbq rehearsal dinner and the food was excellent! All weekend our guests were talking about the mac & cheese. They were great to work with, very helpful with our supplies rental and great with the setup.

Flavorful, flexible, well presented, hard working, affordable. I can't say enough about this caterer.

All the details were clearly stated in the contract. There were no smoke and mirrors about the details or what each thing cost. No silly things like cake cutting fees either.

On the day of, their staff flipped the room after the ceremony pretty quickly and that left us the opportunity to enjoy the most out of our reception.

Our experience with White House catering was fantastic.

White House catering won us over from Day #1 with their responsiveness, friendliness, and their vast experience. These guys are the real deal. So you can imagine how pleased we were to taste the food and find out THAT was the real deal too. Absolutely delicious.

David was always willing to meet with us whenever we had questions and Christy was always responding to our emails in a matter of hours instead of days. I am a person who needs to plan out everything, so I was always sending them emails and calling with questions. They were super responsive compared to other caterers we first contacted who never e-mailed us back. In addition to all the phone calls and e-mails, we had an amazing tasting where David walked us through each dish and we got to try everything. We loved it.

In the lead up to the event itself, we had Andrew running our event and setup. He worked very closely with our rental company and the folks there setting up to make sure everything was in place and ready for the event. At the event itself, everything ran smoothly and the staff was extremely professional, going above and beyond their job duties in some cases.

In a big wedding like ours with many vendors and tons of moving parts and pieces, there are bound to be a few hiccups. We had a few minor logistical things that we'd discussed with David that it appears didn't get communicated to the crew at the reception site. However, these were minor issues and nothing that got in the way of our amazing day.

So, in short, if you like amazing food, professional staff, and people who will work hard to make your day special, I definitely recommend White House catering.

David and the staff at White House catering were fantastic to work with from beginning to end. We wanted something a little different and more involved than you usually find at weddings. We love food and it's been a big part of our relationship and we wanted food stations that reflected our relationship. We wanted a food station that had Virginia flair since that's where we're from; an Indian station since we love Indian food; and a station with food from the Southwest since we lived there for a year. The staff not only embraced our view but incorporated our three themes in the appetizers as well as the stations. The food was impeccable which I was surprised by as everything was different. I had one guest seek me out to tell me it was the best wedding food they had every had! David was hands on from the beginning, with helping to plan the entire menu to sitting with us for the tasting. The staff at the event were incredibly friendly and helpful. Every single one spent the entire night with a huge smile on their face and super helpful. And we got all of this from the least expensive caterer we met with! We couldn't have asked for more. Thank you David!

White House Catering is amazing! The food is delicious without costing an arm and a leg. E-mails are responded to super quickly, which was really important to me as a bride ad they had no problem making changes pretty close to the wedding.
All of the staff showed up on time, and looked very professional in all black. After the ceremony, someone brought the groom and I some appetizers while we were doing pictures. They also prepared our plates for the main course and had them at our tables, which was great because I wouldn't have eaten otherwise. The staff did a good job of keeping tables cleared without being in the way. Whoever my bartenders were, were awesome. I had a signature drink that I forgot to give the recipe for and they figured something out that was delicious without me even having mentioned the ingredients.
Did I mention the food was delicious? They worked with us to create the menu that we wanted for our wedding. We weren't locked into using a specific menu. I'd definitely use White House Catering again!

Having good food at the wedding was of utmost importance to my fiancé and me, and White House did not disappoint. I found White House through a list of recommended vendors for our venue, so I set up a meeting with Christy, who was very personable and knowledgeable. She helped to customize an amazing menu that was within the budget. After the tasting, we knew we had to hire White House. Throughout the whole wedding planning process, Christy was quick to respond to any questions I had –she was also extremely patient with me! David was wonderful as well. He came to several meetings we had with the coordinators and the venue manager. He was very knowledgeable about the lay of the land at the venue and about what would work best in terms of layout and so forth. It was evident that he knew what he was doing!
The day of the wedding, everything went off without a hitch thanks to the White House staff. I had multiple people come up to me to tell me how great the food was – especially the macaroni and cheese bar. I was happy that I actually got to eat some of it! My only disappointment was that the dessert bar was not presented as discussed, but in the grand scheme of things it was a minor one. Everyone loved it. The White House staff was awesome and the food was fantastic.

We LOVED our caterer and the food that we had for our wedding! We had the six cheese macaroni and cheese which everyone still raves about complete with assorted toppings. White House Catering went above and beyond in every category. Only reason why I gave 4 stars for responsiveness was due to some miscommunications for tasting dates. Didn't change my opinion at all though on the quality of the food or the catering company! We loved them!

The food tasting we did before hand was so nice. I highly recommend him when you are looking for a caterer for any type of event. His employees go above & beyond to make your event special. We got many compliments on the food for both the cocktail hour as well as our meal. This is just a great company to work with, there was no stress involved for us which I loved.

You cannot go wrong with White House Catering! My husband and I absolutely loved working with David and all of his staff! You will not regret going with White House Catering; they are worth every single penny.

My husband and I planned our wedding from overseas. David and his staff went above and beyond to accommodate us, and to make everything as simple as possible. From the start, the company has been consistently professional, straightforward, responsive, and honest. We were able to do everything through email; the ease with which they handled my requests and questions speaks to how well-run White House Catering is. Their attention to detail and planning capabilities is as close to perfect as humanly possible.

The contract was clear and professionally presented; I knew exactly what we were getting for exactly how much. We did heavy hors d'oeuvres buffet-style, and there were only about 4 take-out boxes worth of leftovers. I thought that was the perfect amount of leftovers, and considered it another testament to David's experience. I know my guests were well fed and we were able to enjoy some food the next day--great planning!

One experience with David really sticks out in my mind: my wedding planner forgot to set up the tasting and first face-to-face meeting we had with David. This was especially bad because my husband and I drove in from 2 hours away for the meeting. David somehow managed to pull the food for our tasting together and meet with us, on-time and with all of our email discussions printed out. Even though he had some huge events coming up, he was relaxed through the meeting and answered all of our questions easily. He was completely prepared for a meeting he had very, very little time to prepare for. That is the quality of service and professionalism you will get with David. Absolutely incredible!

The food: all of the stereotypes about wedding food go out the window when it comes to the masterpieces David provides. All of my guests were raving about how delicious the food was! They suggested a great menu of food I didn't think of and each of the selections complemented the others. His bar staff handled my prior requests for alcohol distribution perfectly (we did an open bar); my guests were very happy with the drinks.

Overall, I have no complaints about White House Catering, and I fully recommend them with no reservations!

White House Catering is wonderful. David and Christy are both very professional and knowledgeable. I'm vegetarian and have a few vegan friends, and David went out of his way to make sure there were vegetarian and vegan appetizers and entrees readily available. We did a surf and turf entree, which was a big hit. A good family friend has a really bad fin-fish allergy. I told David in advance who had the allergy and what table he was sitting at. The plate was delivered with a double order of meat, no problem. My guest did not even have to ask for a special plate.

I got my own ABC license and bought my own alcohol. The trickiest part was figuring out how much to buy. David and Christy helped with that, but I think my friends drank more than expected. But it all worked out. The bartenders were great.

Food was delicious. I received lots of compliments from guests.

I also planned my wedding from out-of-town, and it worked out to set up a couple meetings with David on days I was visiting and handle everything else by email.

Overall, I would highly recommend White House Catering. I found David and his staff to be genuinely nice people who enjoy what they do and want to help make successful events. It was a great value for great food with good service.

White House Catering is wonderful! We worked with them for both our rehearsal dinner and our wedding reception, and they were just fabulous. The food was absolutely delicious and the service both evenings was seamless. I am pretty sure that no one will forget that mac and cheese or the crab bisque - seriously, people were raving about it all night. We really did not have to worry about a thing that night since they took care of everything for us! David and Christy were such a pleasure to work with - they always responded within one day every time I had a wedding question. My entire family was so pleased with their work that we look forward to working with them on more family events in the future.

Whitehouse catered our daughter's wedding and the service they provided was exceptional. The food was fresh, flavorful and attractively displayed from start to finish. Guests commented favorably on everything from the Crispy Asiago Asparagus Spears to the Grilled Salmon and Wild Mushroom Risotto. Many indicated that it was the best food they'd ever had at a wedding. It's hard to keep food warm and attractively displayed (we went with two buffet lines) for 210 guests but Whitehouse pulled it off. David Napier was extremely helpful during the tasting and helped us select the perfect seasonal menu. He and his staff were responsive throughout the entire process and were also flexible about a couple of last minute requests. David was present during our event and made sure everything went smoothly and according to our timeline. His staff discreetly kept tables clean and tidy during the reception. I wholeheartedly recommend Whitehouse Catering without reservation!

Our wedding was made nothing but worse by having White House cater our event. They seem so great in the meetings leading up to our event, but please do yourself a favor and choose someone else...there are too many great caterers in this area to gamble on such a big part of your wedding. What went wrong:
1. They promised us that they'd take care of the bridal party since we had to miss cocktail hour. David personally promised that he'd bring coolers and appetizers to us while we did our pictures and this never happened. He promised the groomsmen and bridesmaids a private cocktail hour since they weren't allowed to go up to cocktail hour. This wouldn't have been a big deal except...
2. DINNER WAS SERVED BEFORE OUR BRDIAL PARTY AND US WERE ANNOUNCED IN!! While we were being announced in everyone was standing around the food stations and it was a mess. So, even though we were promised to be able to eat first (a very important thing because we had to start rounding right away) we weren't able to eat because the lines were so long. My poor bmaids and gmen didn't get to eat for another hour at least.
3. They started serving on PLASTIC PLATES. Even though I spent an arm and a leg on nice plates, they started using plastic wear! My poor father ate his meal with a plastic knife and fork and plate. At least I guess there was a knife, because at first they forgot to bring knives and people had to gnaw at their steak like animals.
4. Even though I requested that they pour the beer into glassware, they just handed out bottles and cans.
5. At the end of the evening one of their bartenders just started giving our extra alcohol away! Even though we were told to buy our own booze, despite the extra hassle, they said it would save us money because we could always return the extra. There was a lot of extra, but this bartender took it upon herself to start handing out the extra handles and cases of beer.
6. You get promied "take away" boxes because you really don't get to eat a whole lot during your wedding. We never got these and as we didn't get to eat because of the dinner mess, we were starving by the time we got to the hotel and had to order room service.

I e-mailed David with these complaints and he never responded - completely unprofessional. Please, please do yourself a favor and go with another catering company. I am kicking myself for not choosing Mosaic or any of the other dozens of catering businesses here.

White House Catering responded with the following comments:

Preface to my rebuttal...

Although we had to step in and help the event coordinator due to the circumstances outlined below, the following should not be interpreted to suggest a lack of effort or staffing by the event coordination team. They spent days ahead staging the event. On the event day we have more "live bodies" and are happy to offer assistance. The event coordinator had adequate staff for the proposed event- the last minute changes and the bride's call not to go with the rain plan simply created a situation that took all available resources to handle. Event coordinators are totally focused on the bride. As the caterer I must focus on all the guests and all situations, and balance the unexpected with the expected.

On to the day...

This review is missing one very important element: the torrential downpour during the ceremony time. When I spoke with the wedding planner after I received the bride’s initial email she (the planner) assured me that she had done everything in her power to go with the rain plan. My staff, an hour before the rain began, was pressing for an answer. We had the weather on our screen. Advice to all brides: when rain is a certainty, make the decision so that your planner and your caterer can give you proper service. The rain is simply out of our control.

Point number one: Two days before the wedding, we were informed of a drastic change to the layout. The entire cocktail hour was moved to a distant location with no electricity that required a second full bar setup. No one offered to pay for the additional labor, but we did it anyway. The bride and groom (and wedding party) were in the vicinity of a bar, and with the new layout and the fact that the event planner did not have enough staff to handle the weather and the changes meant that we had to use our staff to perform many non-contracted for duties. Again, we were ready and willing to assist in all of the crises we did not create in order to make the event a success. Our staff was moving chairs for the event planner when we should have been taking appetizers to the bridal party.

Point number two: We repeatedly asked the guests to sit down and stop attacking the food stations. Some guests were literally eating from the pasta station with their fingers, so we thought it best to put a set of tongs in there. We did have sympathy for the guests however, as they had been forced to sit on a bus for an hour and were growing restless. This was not a dinner buffet, but heavy appetizer stations, and the wedding planner should have escorted the bridal party to the front of the line. Again, a rain plan that was actually followed when it rained would have given us control of the crowd. I’m sure the guests would have understood the bridal party moving to the front of the line.

Point number three: We should be commended for having plastic plates. We did not charge for these, but we had absolutely nothing to do with the rentals. As far as us forgetting knives, again we had absolutely nothing to do with the rentals. I would also like to point out that we provided at no charge, disposable coffee cups for an elegant coffee station, because we never saw the rental order.

Point number four: It was never communicated to us that all beer was to be poured into glasses. We offer to pour; a lot of guests were college and post-grad age and just requested the can or bottle. If we had poured every beer, we would have switched to plastic cups before the second hour of the event. By the way, we have plastic cups in reserve just in case there is a need.

Point number five: I do have an ABC license and would have happily sold the wedding all of the alcohol. We do allow our clients to get their own ABC license and provide the alcohol. This is something we do to help the bride and groom stay within their budget. As the owner of a business, it is in my best interest to sell them the product. As far as our bartender giving away the product; the mother of the groom instructed her on what to do, who to give it to, and stood there while the bartender carried out her instructions, until the bride came over and changed the program. There were several guests assigned to help remove the alcohol, and we had no way of knowing who they were without direction. That is why the bartender only gave out alcohol with a family member present.

Point number six: Towards the end of the event, several young children were dispatched by someone in the bridal party to pickup to-go food. We packed several to-go boxes for the children to take back, our assumption being that it was destined for the bride and groom and their families. I’m sure the bride would know who these children were, and be able to find out who got her late night food.

Regarding the email the bride sent me: It was received on Wednesday, I was out of the office until Thursday, spent most of Thursday contacting the over 20 staff people we had on that event, finally got the event coordinator Thursday evening for her take, and this review was posted Friday. I needed to make sure from all perspectives about the flow of the event before I contacted the bride. We do have many good caterers in Richmond. I know most of them. There is not a catering company that would have been more flexible on an event such as this and all the last minute changes would have resulted in significant increases on the final invoice had the bride chosen another caterer.

Final point: We received many complements from the guests AND FAMILY regarding our quality and quantity of food, and our excellent attitudes and flexibility before and during this rain delayed, beautiful- but muddy- celebration.

We met with David three times over the course of 8 months. Of all the things we asked for and agreed upon in these meetings, about the only thing that materialized was the food on the menu. Here is a list of things they did that surprised us on our wedding day:

1. Changed the contract end of service time without us knowing and called last call 1:15 early - 2 of them were nice enough to stick around after this - they tried to make things right.

2. Told us they would provide a "meat carver" to cut and distribute main dish in buffet line, who was not present at the actual reception.

3. Met with them on Wednesday before the wedding to ask them to serve champagne to tables for a toast. We did not want to serve champagne to all of our guests because some may not have wanted it, so we asked them to pour some glasses initially and go around to serve guests at their tables. After they went through the initial glasses, we asked that they go to the tables (as before) and ask guests without champagne if they would like some and pour single glasses from therein. They ended up pouring 25 glasses of champagne and letting it sit on a table - no table service. When we realized that the toasts were started and no one had champagne, we had to stop the toasts. The toasts were even further delayed they were then completely unprepared to pour additional glasses.

4. On same Wednesday meeting, asked them to only open one red and one white wine only to show up and see 6 different kinds of wines open.

5. They had agreed to serve my home-brewed beer and, on the same Wednesday meeting, told us that the bar tender would pour this beer for our guests, but we showed up to the reception only to see people drinking homebrew from bottles (homebrew contains enough yeast at the bottom to put you in the bathroom for the entire reception, if you have a sensitive stomach)

6. They agreed on Wednesday to setup the flowers for us at the reception hall before the reception. We showed up with the flowers to hear them tell us that it was not in their job description to do this.

7. They did not put out plates at the dessert table after we had asked for this on Wednesday. We had to ask for plates on the dessert table after the table was half gone.

8. Instead of refilling the cookies and cupcakes on trays on the dessert table, they put them out on the tables in the plastic containers or wax paper they were being stored in, and not on the cookie trays or cupcake tower.

9. We had a signature drink at the reception and furnished all of the ingredients to make the signature drink with a recipe. They did not follow our recipe for the signature drink. We had a bottle of alcohol left over (now I know why people were telling me that they wished the punch was stronger) and one other ingredient. This was as simple as following direction on a piece of paper and adding 5 liquids together in a jug.


We were very displeased with White House Catering. I told them that we were unhappy with their service at the end of the night - I still have not received a call from them to talk about all of the misfires. I will say that they food was very good and was not all that expensive (Value for Cost). When we asked for something at the reception, they were generally able to take care of it (but the problem was that we had to notice this ahead of time.) (Responsiveness). I ranked them low for Flexibility because they seemed to flexible in discussions, but there was little in the way of putting these plans into action. I gave the "0's" for Quality and Professionalism because when you fail to do things that you were asked to do, agreed to do and were paid to do, it is lazy and unprofessional.This company appeared to be very poorly organized and lack streamlined communication, where our thoughts and idea were given to the the boss and passed down the chain to those who actually provided the service. I think White House Catering should definitely be considered if you have a wedding coordinator or planner, or someone who can babysit the company and make sure that everything is taken care of before it happens. However, we did not choose that luxury and for that reason, I would not go with them again. There are too many other caterers out there who can make good food and execute a reception service plan.

White House Catering responded with the following comments:

Our staff was repeatedly complimented on the food, service and flexibility by the guests and wedding party during and after the event. I must comment on what really happened and will do so point by point. Let me begin by saying that we strive for the best food and service no matter the size of the event or budget, and that even when clients provide their own alcohol we still have personal liability for overserving.
1-We were never provided a timeline. After all dances were completed, over 6 hours from when the event started there was a last call made. It was only then that we were informed the DJ was contracted until 11:00. The bar was never closed and the DJ immediatly corrected. In hindsight we should have re-stocked the bar and made it self serve. In all my years I have never done a reception with an 8 hour open bar. In the future we will offer extended services on an hourly basis, but we will reserve the right to remove our staff from serving alcohol.
2-The chef carved in the back for faster service, the buffet was attended by servers. As the food slows, the servers the move to the floor to bus and maintain guest tables.
3-At our final meeting no mention of offering champagne to all tables was mentioned, it was to be available if requested. We were told to pour for about half the guests for a "drink in hand, champagne available toast". Two servers and the bartender were pouring additional as needed.
4-We opened 6 bottles of wine for faster service, not 6 types. This point is moot- at the end of the night almost no wine was left, it all got used anyway.
5-We offered to pour beers. Many guests (mostly male) asked for the bottle. Unless you are chugging a beer you will know when the sediment starts to flow and then you get another. It seemed most were aware, our bartenders did tell guests why they suggested the pour. We again were doing as the guests requested.
6-The flowers. More than 2 hours before the event began a lady showed up with the flowers while we were unloading the truck. She was resectfully told that yes it was in the notes that we would put them on the tables, if she would set them inside we would take it from there. She took it upon herself to put them out. We unload the truck first, then set the tables. Maybe she was upset she did not have the power to make the staff stop what we were doing, but to suggest anyone said it was not their job is an outright lie. We put the flowers out at almost all of our events, it takes just a few minutes and is usually done as final touches are completed on the guest tables.
7-Plates and napkins were on the dessert table. At this event the client provided the plates, when they ran out we did have to re-stock with another type.
8-Over 7 hours into the event we were told to put out all the desserts. All the diplays were full including our trays so we put the rest out in the packages they were brought to us in.
9-The recipe was followed. We made a judgement call that the punch was strong enough but just to make sure we had a member of the wedding party taste it. She said it was very good, we could have added more liquor at any time if requested. If the client had not seen the other bottle of alcohol they would have never known, but we have nothing to hide, and they have a bottle of liquor for a future party.
We did an exceptional job at a very reasonable price for these people. Any issues with a timeline were because we had none. We are professional and certainly not "lazy". Everyone who worked the event was shocked and insulted by the personal nature of these comments. The clients needed a coordinator, not the caterer.

If I ever need a caterer again, I will ONLY use Whitehouse. They were amazing. The food was priced below my budget and tasted wonderful. David met with me personally twice at the venue to help me plan everything. They took care of every little detail from table placement to setting up tealights in centerpieces. Emmit, who was in charge at the actual event, was amazing. He was on top of everything. He personally made sure we got food before the buffet was opened to everyone else. The bartender made sure I got the last glass of my husband's home brew and sent it to me. Their service was impeccable and I would highly recommend them to anyone for any function! Looking at prices for other caterers, I cannot believe I got such good quality food and service for the amazing price.

David Napier and his crew catered our rehearsal dinner (at Old City Bar) and our reception. They did an excellent job with both. The food was delicious and there was plenty to go around (we had a buffet at the reception). The plated rehearsal dinner ran smoothly and the service was very professional. For the money, White House offers a full-service catering experience without the added costs for cake-cutting, bottle-opening, etc. They didn�t nickel and dime us at all. They even coordinated our supply rentals with another company at no extra cost to us. David (the owner) was present during both events, which was a nice touch. We would definitely recommend using White House catering for a wedding or any other event. They were terrific!

David Napier and his team are GOOD! Their service is good, their professionalism is good, their FOOD is good... everything! They will let you choose your own menu (which is AWESOME for a bride) and they will make things easy and simple. They can provide bartenders, can coordinate rentals, etc. I was SO pleased when we chose David Napier's White House Catering for our rehearsal dinner (tailgate theme), cocktail hour (heavy hors d'oeuvres), and reception dinner (pasta and garlic bread... mmm!) He is a pleasure, very hands-on, and all-out wonderful.
