Thank you Wildwood Hospitality for the amazing food at our wedding. Everything was absolutely delicious - I was blown away. Also, all our family and friends have commented on our great all the appetizers and meals were. The bar service was also phenomenal - there were never line ups at the bar and they were able to accommodate all the special requests we had!

I would have given John and Kristen 5/5 for all the categories, because they were so flexible and easy to work with. The food was excellent and our guests were impressed by the quality and taste. The main course took about 40 minutes to serve which was a bit unfortunate but given our numbers (157 guests), it was understandable. The main thing was that the food was still warm and tasty which was our main concern.

However, I was disappointed on the evening of my wedding when several of their bartenders were extremely rude to me. They stopped serving shots at 11pm (when our bar opened at 9:30pm after dinner) and it took me a while to beg them to continue serving our guests. They said that guests were too drunk and that they would continue serving cocktails and mixed drinks but no shots. Having paid a huge fee for the venue, food and drinks, it was extremely stressful to know that my guests would not get their beverage preference.

One of the managers, Terri, even went to the extent of shouting back at me and said that he would shut down the whole bar if I continued to complain.

Overall, I really loved working with John and Kristen but was pretty upset with the whole bar situation on my wedding night.

We couldn't have been happier than to have picked John and his team for the wedding. The food was fantastic, exactly what we had hoped for. It even included the addition of a traditional german pasta, which was as good as we have ever tasted it. Our guests couldn't say enough good things about the food either. John and Kristen handled our last minute changes, and excessive e-mails on rentals extremely well and were easy to deal with. Instead of gouging us on add-ons they provided us tips on how to save money, which was good given our budget. The bartenders were extremely fast and kept a thirsty crowd from having to wait in line. We would recommend Wildwood to anyone looking for a caterer for their wedding.

Wildwood Hospitality is by far one of the top local catering companies (in my books). Their service and quality of food compare to no one. Their staff displayed professionalism, and dedication at all times.
It was a pleasure to have them included in our special day!

John O'Brien and his team at Wildwood are AMAZING!! The food was outstanding, we are still getting comments from friends and family a month later! They are extremely accommodating and flexible and were happy to meet our requests up until the day before the wedding. We chose their Marche buffet option which has staffed stations for food. We had a salad station, build your own pasta bar, and a chicken and beef carving station. This option allowed our guests to eat as much of whatever they want and not be hungry after dinner. I would highly recommend Wildwood Hospitality to anyone having a wedding in the near future!

John and his staff provided us with a wonderful meal. I was a bit worried about the beef tenderloin as there was no kitchen at our venue and we were running late, but it was cooked to perfection (medium-rare). We also served chicken and pad thai and everyone raved about the food.
John and Kristen kept things easy and stress free, and helped us with some cost saving tips.

My husband and I were extremely blessed to have the catering services of John @ Wildwood Hospitality Services. He had an excellent selection of food options to choose from and was extremely helpful with ironing out the details. We wanted a sausage vendor for our midnight buffet, but John suggested having something more affordable, like using the BBQ from our Friday night dinner for the midnight buffet (which saved us money). Their wait staff during the reception dinner were courteous, friendly, and prompt. And the guests were amazed at how beautiful the food presentation was and how delicious it was. I think what I liked most about John, was his personality and zest for life. During the whole process he was incredibly accommodating, organized, and fun to work with. Would definitely hire this company again for future family gatherings or events.
