Danielle with Windows I cannot say enough great things. She was AMAZING from day one. Windows had amazing food and created a menu totally around our tastes. We had mini cheeseburgers at cocktail hour that everyone raved about and our cake was chocolate perfection. Danielle was so patient with every change i made and i tasted about 50 cakes before we found the right one. They were so responsive to last minute changes and worked seamlessly on the night of the wedding. While they were expensive they prooved they were worth it in quality, attentivness, creativity, and professionalism. I highly recommmend not only Windows but especially Danielle.

Windows was absolutely wonderful to work with for our wedding! Their extreme professionalism and knowledge of the wedding industry shined through in all of our interactions with them, and the final results at our wedding were perfect. Cynthia was great to work with and went above and beyond with her assistance - from setting up our decorations and party favors, to providing multiple tasting sessions to ensure we got just what we wanted, to helping with the overall planning process. All of the food was delicious and the decor (linens, flatware, stemware, plates, etc.) was a notch above. Anyone who is looking for an all-inclusive caterer that will provide great food, beautiful decor and exceptional assistance all at a reasonable price should definitely book Windows :)

Windows was on our venue’s recommended caterer list. We spoke with many caterers, but Windows wowed us with their responsiveness, service, and tasty food. Our event manager, Nicole, always responded quickly and completely to our questions. We were able to handle most of our planning via email, but also had a tasting, in-person event review session, and walk-through of our venue. At no time were we worried about the outcome of our wedding. They even helped set up our decor (candles, escort cards, etc.) Windows was a full-service operation - they not only handled the food but also all of our rentals (chairs, dishes, linens, etc.) Windows was so organized and prepared that the event went off without a hitch. They made our day truly stress free.

Windows was not the cheapest caterer on our list, but we have absolutely no regrets in choosing them to cater our wedding. They wowed us with their incredible service. On the day of our wedding, the entire staff operated professionally and in a friendly manner. A few servers even went out of their way to help move chairs to the dance floor for our guests with mobility issues.

Additionally, the food during the wedding was even better than it was during the tasting. We didn’t think that was possible.

Getting Windows was a last minute change b y our venue. And I will admit my wife was worried but I tell you what they did not disappoint. After our wedding dinner, we did not see any food left over. Everyone loved the food, all they raved about was how great the food was from the the cocktail hour to the main course every last drop was delicious. Kudos to Windows to making our day so perfect. We would definitely choose them again for any event we do in the future.

Amazing, simply amazing. My hubby and I are huge foodies so food was a very important element of our wedding. I asked my cousin who has worked in the DC wedding industry for 25+ years who the best caterer was, and Debbie from Windows Catering was his first recommendation. We could not believe how good EVERYTHING was when we went in for our tasting...not one thing tasted like "wedding" food. We compared it to one other vendor (who had the same prices) and there was absolutely no comparison. We went table to table to greet our guests after the entree was served, and I can honestly tell you that every plate was practically licked clean - and it wasn't because there wasn't enough food! Now, don't let me forget our dessert bar. They had a peanut butter cupcake which was honestly one of the most delicious desserts I have ever had in my life, and I'm not usually even a cupcake person. And one last thing - Debbie was just amazing the day of my wedding. She had everything taken care of, not one thing was out of place and she told me it was my day and I had to enjoy my wedding and not to worry about a single thing since everything was taken care of. SYNOPSIS - you can't go wrong with them. They've been doing this so long that their website is www.catering.com!!

Windows is an amazing caterer,and my husband and I would not change anything about the delicious food and overall service they provided at our wedding. Ashley is fantastic, and helped us from the very beginning to create a menu and overall ambiance that we wanted. Guests raved about the food, and many said it was the best meal they had had at a wedding. I know it is common to hear that on your wedding day, you don't have time to eat, but my husband and I were so excited about the delicious filet that we sat down to eat the entire meal (albeit quickly!) Furthermore, I am so grateful to Ashley for going above and beyond--she coordinated delivery with other vendors (flowers, lighting, etc) and ensured that the location looked elegant and beautiful. She also helped us choose linens and was incredibly flexible with last minute changes. Windows is a phenomenal catering company, and we recommend them to everyone!
