What Our Customers Are Saying:


Catered Productions is by far one of the best catering companies! They were so responsive to my e-mails, they personalized everything to my liking, and they were just all around fantastic. Not to mention they are very affordable compared to other catering companies. I received rave reviews about the food, and was even told it's the best food some people have ever had at a wedding. I can't say enough great things about them. The staff was amazing, the bartender was great, the chefs were fantastic. I'm just so so happy with the service I received from them. I highly recommend Catered Productions, and if I ever have another reason to use them I certainly will!

We loved Catered Productions. They were on our venue's "approved" list, and by far, the most responsive and professional among the caterers we contacted. Katie was our primary point person and was so helpful, detailed, and on top of everything. We were able to tailor a menu that exactly fit our vibe: laid back, party-in-the-park. Our guests raved about the food. Day-of, our on-site people were amazing (I wish I'd gotten their names!), directing traffic, keeping things flowing, and making sure everyone was happy, fed, and having a good time. Our bartender was friendly and professional, too. The team even boxed up leftovers and helped us clean up. I've already passed along Catered Productions' name to another friend getting married, and I wouldn't hesitate to hire them for a future event.

This is the third time that I have used Catered Productions for an event so I knew immediately once I started planning my own wedding that i would use them.
My husband and I are foodies, we love great food and the experience. We opted to go with a Station set-up for dinner rather than a seated dinner. As we didn't want to spend an hour or more sitting in the same place and not mingling, the day goes by fast enough and you want to move around. We did 5 stations and a dessert table and it was perfect.
All of our guests raved about the food and a couple of them have even asked for their contact information for future events.
The professionalism and ease to work with them has been extremely enjoyable and there isn't anything that they could have done better!

This is one of the best kept secrets. If you want more for your money, hire Catered Productions. The food is fabulous at an affordable price. Mike and Wan are great to work with. Their staff attend to your every need at the night of your reception. Tracey was our head server and she was wonderful. She gave prompt service with a smile. Their packages for wedding receptions are great and they are very flexible with food allergies.

I was very pleased with Catered Productions final product. The servers present at our reception were friendly and kind. They had lots of smiles and were interactive with us. The food was delicious and served warm. We had to ask to rent a handful of tablecloths the week before my wedding and they were quick to respond and graciously supplied us with the extra tablecloths.

The only mishap was that we had ordered 2 vegetables, but they brought them out one at a time. So, those who went first in the buffet line had one vegetable choice and those who went later had a different vegetable choice. All the guests were supposed to have both vegetable choices. When we asked Catered Productions about the missing vegetable, they apologized and took off the charges for the extra tablecloths. We were pleased with their customer service and the value they placed on us.
