We loved working with Deb throughout this wedding experience!!! She was amazing and really made us feel comfortable with every decision we made along the way! The reception food was amazing and we even got to eat some thanks to Debbie? Who served us our meal and brought us drinks when we were busy floating around with guests! We would definitely recommend this caterer to anyone...they provided linens and bar service as well!
Salernos was a great caterer to work with! They had the perfect combination of food that we wanted and were so accomodating to our needs. We even requested two vegan entrees and they were able to provide black bean burgers or veggie kabobs for them. They provided bar services, as well as table linens for our reception. We were even able to get our linens 2 days before the reception so we could set up the way we wished. Debbie and Suzanne was wonderful ladies to work with in the catering department and they're highly recommended!
Salerno's was really great, and so flexible! I wanted to pick up the linens the day before, no problem. I knew there would be hay all over the place, and I expected we would have to clean it up, nope! Salerno's took care of it. We brought in a Frozen drink machine. At the end of the night I expected we would have to clean it because it was ours, nope! Salerno's took it apart and completely cleaned it! The servers were friendly, the bartender was excellent, the food was fantastic. They did a lot more than I expected, clean up wise, for what I paid. I was extremely happy, and would DEFINITELY recommend them!
Salernos was wonderful for my wedding caterer. The food is so good and the prices cant be beat. Suzanne helped me out so much with my questions and small demands for the setup and linen for the wedding day. Thank you so much Salerno's for making my day memorable!
Suzanne did a wonderful job advising me plan how things would go,and carried out the plan flawlessly.Everyone was very friendly and professional. The food was great, and we couldn't have been happier.Working with Salernos Catering was truly an amazing experience.
WOW! We used Salerno's for our catering and it really took the stress off! Debbie, the special events coordinator, kept our budget in mind and still managed to do everything we wanted. We had an awesome coctail hour - stuffed mushrooms, crab dip, cheese tray, spanikopita, and more! We ended up starting dinner earlier than anticipated, which was no problem. The service was amazing - they seriously anticipated everything from extra glasses & silverware to assuring everyone was set with drinks & food. I got so many compliments on the food and the service!
To think of everything they did, both before, during and after the wedding (they even stacked the chairs & swept) I could not be more thankful to them. The food was an amazing value (we even came in UNDER budget- nice, since we were paying for it ourselves) and the service was unparalleled.
They bought out Olde World catering and they were willing to stand by any deals that had been made prior to them taking over the business. The food was wonderful and the staff was great!
