You and your staff went above and beyond to make all the details perfect. As people who are used to worrying about the little things, it was wonderful to know that you had everything under control and that we could just enjoy the day. When we come upon our next catered event, I will know where to turn. P.S. The wine tree was a complete hit! It has set a new standard for events in our family. This place is nice, but where is the wine tree?

We had a great event with plenty of food that everyone complimented immensely. You are our caterer of choice for future events. We gave out your cards to everyone at the event, so expect many calls from them!

We cannot thank you and your staff enough for all your efforts. Everyone was incredibly kind and attentive. The venue and setup was gorgeous and the food was delicious. The salad was so good, people were shouting to the table next to them asking, "Are you talking about the salad, because if not, you should!" ??

I wanted to extend my gratitude for the wonderful service we received yesterday from Catered by Design. I'm always nervous when coordinating events out of state, but it was a pleasure working with you from the beginning. Your proposal was professional and polished and put my mind at ease. You continued to answer all of my questions throughout the coordination of the event and then you all delivered without a hiccup!

There are no words really, it turned out just beautiful and perfect. Way beyond my expectations and the guests were raving about the venue, food and presentation (especially the wine tree). Couldn't have asked for more. Thank you for the attentions to detail and make the day extra special for us.

Everyone was just amazed with how great the wedding was and so many people have told me it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding! I will definitely look for an opportunity to get to work with you and your team in the future! We will even keep you on my radar for work events! ☺️

Every single detail was exactly as we discussed, and it was even better and more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. The food was sensational, and all of our guests commented that it was delicious. Thank you for helping us with everything every step of the way, we truly could not have done it without you.
