David M. Grant Caterers
We used David M. Grant Caterers for our daughters wedding at Beardsley Zoo. We rented the carousel building out. What a great time. David Grant Caterers knew the venue well and did a fantastic job with setup and the food was excellent. The staff was very attentive. Lindsay the event coordinator at the zoo was excellent also. The combination of the two made it a day to remember. I would highly recommend them both.
Using David Grant catering was a wonderful experience. The food was really yummy for the costs and they were very flexible, including giving us special meals for guests with allergies. The Dave I worked with, although very short on the email responses, was VERY responsive and helpful anytime I had questions or needed a change in contract. I think it was just his email personality - never rude, just short and to the point. Over the phone he was so very friendly and I never felt neglected. Everyone raved about the food which was wonderful for us, because my husband and I had to pay for the wedding ourselves. We also wanted an essentially open bar, but they gave us open beer & wine along with a running tab for liquor which helped keep costs down. The staff took such great care of myself and my groom - asking us if we needed a drink and playing our food even though it was buffet. Only hiccup was that one of my guests had pink chicken - however they VERY quickly fixed this and NOBODY was sick or anything. The food was high quality and after that all chicken came out steaming hot but not dry. They even helped clean up our decorations at the end of the night. They were seamless and I would definitely recommend them to anyone getting married in CT area who needs to fit a budget or bring a caterer on site. Thank you guys for helping make the best day of our lives even better!
We had a wonderful Experience with David's catering. We wanted delicious food that felt special enough for a wedding but also comfort food that reflects what we enjoy. David helped us put together a menu that included peanut butter sandwiches, lobster rolls, and pizza in a way that actually seemed coherent. (We brought pizza in from a local restaurant, but David's team helped to organize and serve it. I give him especially high marks for flexibility for this!) The service was excellent and their professionalism during the event made the gourmet pizza seem like an elegant dinner. Our guests loved it and we got to eat our favorite foods!!!
David was also a huge help with linens, place settings and all the extras!
It sometimes took a day longer to hear from him by e-mail than I might of liked, but on the weekend of the wedding I never doubted that our event would get all the attention needed.
David Grant and his staff were great. Everyone was professional and cheerful all night long, and as helpful as could be. Prices were very reasonable, as well.
David Grant and his staff are top notch. The service was incredible. We had a difficult request for our dinner. My husband is a vegetarian with food allergies. Not an easy combo. David was able to adhere to our wishes for a vegetarian meal and still keep it safe for my husband.
His ability to offer a wide variety of foods and services was very helpful. Our wedding was an outside event and we didn't have to worry about finding someone to hire for our tent. David has a wonderful company he works with that was great.
Our guests are still raving about the food. They didn't even notice it was vegetarian.
The service was great. All the staff were friendly to us and to all our guests.
If you need a caterer from the area you would be very disapointed if you did not use David. I would reccomend his services to anyone in need of a great caterer.
He was super dependable. He returned our messages very quickly and answered our many questions promptly.
Again if I could rate him with a 10 I would. Could not have asked for better service. He also was kind enough to throw in a champagne toast (glasses and champagne) at no cost to us as a wedding gift. What other caterer do you know that would do that?!
Dave is a saint amongst caterers. The food at our wedding was phenomenal & people are still talking about it. Sometimes he took a couple of days to get back to us, but flexibility and value more than made up for it. The staff who served at the wedding were also far better than we would have expected, even if we were paying three times as much.
