What my Clients are Saying

wedding catering testimonials
My wife and I used Catherine’s Catering to provide food and service for an engagement party for our son and his fiancee. We couldn’t be more pleased with everything that Catherine provided! She was prompt with getting back to us when we first contacted her, she worked with us regarding dates since we had to postpone the event due to COVID, and the food was DELICIOUS! Many guests commented how yummy the food tasted and it was all presented so beautifully! We will definitely use Catherine for all of our entertaining needs in the future. She has it all: delicious food, easy to work with, and Catherine is such a nice person with a great staff! Thank you Catherine’s Catering!

They say perfection does not exist but that is not true. I found perfection and her name is Catherine Gettier of Catherine’s Catering. As a foodie and really good cook, finding a caterer for my daughter’s June 2018 wedding was a top priority. I interviewed 15 caterers from Yorktown to Virginia Beach, VA before choosing Catherine’s Catering. I found Catherine and her catering company on the internet, met her and trusted my instincts. My experience with Catherine and her staff was absolutely wonderful and here’s why:

  1. Reasonable pricing for an extensive wedding buffet for 120 guests consisting of pulled Carolina pork barbecue, coleslaw, baked beans, wedding chicken, grilled vegetables, salad bar, potato bar with Yukon Gold and sweet potatoes with all the toppings and beef brisket.
  2. Professional food tasting with detailed discussion of my menu, expectations, and needs.
  3. Catherine was well organized, detail oriented, extremely personable and immediately responded to all calls and e-mails.
  4. Leadership skills – upon arrival to wedding venue, Catherine went over the catering plan, duties and responsibilities of each staff member and timelines with her staff. Equipment setup was organized, fast, and efficient. All staff members were professional, courteous, and responsive to all.
  5. Food was thoughtfully and beautifully presented. The taste, seasoning and flavor of the food were phenomenal!  
  6. All cooking, food and eating areas were well maintained and kept clean.
  7. Leftover food was nicely packaged and put away for our families.
  8. Our families and guests will remember observing the love between the bride and groom and the phenomenal food served at our wedding.
  9. My guests repeatedly said the food was some of the best they ever had! Don’t waste any more time, you have found the perfect caterer in Catherine Gettier.

I can’t say enough great things about Catherine’s Catering! My husband and I planned our wedding from out of state (we live in NY). Catherine went ABOVE AND BEYOND on every level! We planned a special weekend trip to Va Beach to look at the venue and meet with vendors, and Catherine came with us to look at the venue (a rental beach house). She gave us tons of great ideas, on which rooms to use for what, how to orchestrate the ceremony and reception, etc. Since our venue provided literally nothing but a house, I relied heavily on her help for food, bartender, and furniture rentals.

Catherine hooked us up with Affordable Rentals, and she was the main point of contact for everything, which made my life so much easier. The food was amazing!! We over-ordered because we had 22 guests staying with us in the house, and thought it would be nice to have some leftovers. Nope, the leftovers were gone before the next day because loved the food so much! Our guests went back for seconds and thirds, and loved every bite.

We had BBQ chicken, pulled pork, baked beans, macaroni and cheese, and several southern-themed h’ors d’oeuvres. Everything was amazing! We couldn’t even get seconds on some things because they were eaten so fast!

In the days before the wedding, I had a few last minute decor issues (trying to find lights to hang up and needed extension cords), and Catherine was right there, volunteering to bring her own things for us to use at no charge. That’s unheard of, to have that kind of personal attention and help from your caterer, which is just one reason I HIGHLY recommend Catherine for all your catering needs! She also spent hours walking through the venue with our wedding coordinator the day before the wedding.

We are already trying to think of an excuse to work with her again! 🙂 Besides her amazing food and going above and beyond to help with any and every need, she’s also an amazing human being, generous, and kind! From our first meeting, to the tasting, to the wedding itself – She made us feel so comfortable planning our wedding from afar, because we knew everything was in great hands!

I also loved that I talked to her directly every time I needed something. Some large caterers have multiple people working on one job, and it can get confusing. It was really invaluable to have Catherine available for any and all questions.

What a joy! Catherine and Patrick came to our beach house for a fun family activity, in which we cooked multiple phenomenal dishes. They did an excellent job catering (no pun intended!) to the whole scale of attendees: those more and less culinarily-inclined. The food was PHENOMENAL and the overall experience was an absolute joy. They were so pleasant, talented, and fun! It was an excellent bonding experience.

What a wonderful 60th birthday party I had a couple of weeks ago! You did a fabulous job with the food – as usual for you! Perfect menu, all my favorites and everyone loved the food! We had such a nice group of people to celebrate with me. My only regret was that I was not able to speak to you very much or say thank you in person. So thank you! Job well done!

We had our office open house and Catherine’s Catering catered the event. Our experience was stress-free! We had our initial meeting and we changed our minds a few times, Catherine was flexible, agreeable, and supportive of all decisions made. We needed to accommodate both gluten-free and vegetarian palates and the food was delicious! The presentation of the food was beautiful, the food was very flavorful and the staff was working non-stop throughout the event. The clean up was quick and precise. I had multiple people ask me who catered the event, they were very impressed! I will absolutely be using Catherine’s Catering for my future events!

My beautiful bride Stephanie and I can’t fully express how pleased we were with Catherine’s Catering. We had the privilege of using Catherine for our wedding reception. The food was incredible. All of our guests would agree. The presentation and service was spot on. Catherine’s personal attention and genuine care for our special day was a testament to her professionalism. Stephanie and I had a great experience on our wedding day and Catherine’s Catering was a big reason why. We fully recommend and endorse them to anyone with catering needs.

Catherine and her very capable and pleasant team just catered another successful event for us. There simply aren’t enough superlatives to describe her fabulous cooking and delightful service. There is no need to look elsewhere for a caterer!

Catherine catered our 4th Annual Appreciation night. This was her second time with us. Her food was excellent, both times! This time, she was even a great sport by agreeing to participate in our “Murder Mystery” event. She works hard to please her guests. I will always come to her first when needing a catering service. Thanks Catherine!

We could not have been happier with the food and service provided by Catherine and her staff. The food was delicious, the staff incredible, and Catherine met every one of our needs with a gracious smile. She outdid herself in every aspect and helped make our daughter’s wedding a perfect and magical night. Thank you Catherine and we highly recommend you to all!

We had 2 major parties back to back. When meeting with Catherine, she listened attentively to exactly what I wanted, but also, suggested some things that made it spectacular. Professional, incredible staff, delicious food. Everything handled with grace. She is my GO TO!!!!!!! And still, people are talking about the incredible food! Her baker is marvelous!!!!! She came early, prepared. Set up beautifully. Then removed food, set it properly away, and left our kitchens spotless. I was able to spend time with my guest…..and she made sure they were attended to all during the evening. The parties ran over 2 hours…..she rocked it!

Catherine catered my son’s wedding rehearsal dinner for 60 guests last Friday at a local brewery and it was outstanding! Catherine was accommodating, supportive and patient during the planning stages and helped us select a fantastic menu that appealed to all. The food was nothing short of delicious and the staff went above and beyond expectations throughout the evening running out to replenish supplies when needed. We received numerous compliments on the quality of the food, its preparation and professional service throughout the wedding weekend. Catherine was kind enough to package up and store the leftovers for us so we could share and enjoy them after the wedding. Do not hesitate to hire Catherine’s Catering for your event! You will not be disappointed!!

Catherine catered our annual after-Christmas party this year and far exceeded our expectations. She gave us a wonderful selection of appetizers to choose from and was very helpful in guiding us to a selection that would satisfy all of our guests, from the meat-eaters to the vegans. Everyone raved about the selections. Catherine arrived two hours before the start of the party, set up the food stations, then went to work creating her food works of art. All that was left for me to do was to enjoy my friends. Before she left for the evening, she asked me to step into the kitchen to make sure that everything was okay. Leftovers were in containers placed in the fridge, countertops were wiped down, and the floor was swept. It simply doesn’t get any better than that. She will definitely be handling our catered affairs from here on in!
