Jerry was awesome to work with. Every time I contacted him over the months prior to my daughter's wedding, he either answered the phone when I called or returned my phone call within a few minutes. He was very flexible when I made changes and was helpful during my planning sessions. He brought a bartender for a nominal fee who served the alcohol we purchased, and that was so convenient. Jerry and the 3 servers all dressed professionally and worked proficiently to serve and clear tables. All of the dishes and silverware were cleared, cleaned and stacked in the crates according to the rental agency guidelines. I would give the food 4 out of 5 stars for a couple of reasons--while Jerry explained ahead of time that his server would dish up the meat entrees so we didn't run into the "Uncle Charlie syndrome" (Uncle Charlie who may eat his portion and 7 others), I didn't realize that our guests wouldn't have the option of both the chicken and the pork on their first trip through the line. The server politely informed them that they were welcome to come back for seconds after everyone had made it through the line, but when I heard after the reception that guests didn't have the option of a little of both on their first time through, I was embarrassed, and that made me feel chintzy. It simply isn't how we roll. We rounded up our head count by 15 so we would have plenty of food. Granted, people were free to return for seconds, but it is a niggle that keeps resurfacing in my mind as I think back on the wedding. Also, it would have been much more preferable to have the salad dressings served in containers with small ladles, and not in the tall squeeze bottles. Disappointingly, the leftovers that Jerry put into ziplock bags were never to be found. Perhaps someone threw them out at the end of the evening, but that is hard to imagine. I enjoyed working with Jerry, I feel like he offers a good value, and I would recommend him for your wedding reception.

About

I first enjoyed Chef Jenn’s delicious food at a work event, and then hired her to cater a dinner party, and then a small brunch at my home. The food at each event was AMAZING!! My guests raved about it for weeks! Jenn is truly a creative Chef, who is very passionate about her cooking. It really shows in her food! I also like that she uses fresh, organic ingredients and has many healthy menu options. I highly recommend her catering services, and will definitely use her again.

Krystle was helpful all through the wedding planning process, but wow did she shine the day of. My guests loved her and she was able to handle their rowdiness. She was poised, direct, and calm- everything you need on the day of your wedding. I would recommend her services to anyone planning a wedding!!

Kim and her team did such a fantastic job! They did the catering for my wedding. If you want someone who is organized, personal and cares about their business, Kim is your gal! I got married on May 29, 2016 and for the past 5 days I have been getting emails, phone calls/texts about how fantastic the food and catering service was! Kim is the BEST! We will for sure be using her for any other event we need catering service for!

Will definitely recommend their services for your event.

Savor Catering recently provided the food for my husband's 60th birthday party. We couldn't have been more pleased! Sean was great to work with and he helped me figure out a menu that matched our "backyard luau" theme. (The Hawaiian pork sliders were to die for!) Super delicious food with an emphasis on local sourcing and reasonable prices...what more could you want? Our guests raved about the food and hubby was very happy. Savor will be my "go-to" caterer from now on!

Mike's bar tending service was perfect! The guests at my wedding always had a drink in their hand with little wait time. Mike and his partner were sharply dressed with big smiles!! I've been to weddings before where the bartenders can get cranky...not these guys, they kept my guests happy while making sure they stayed upright. Thank you Mike for such a wonderful service. I will think of you for all bar tending needs!!
