Here’s what they’re saying about us.

We get wonderful letters from our clients. Here is a sampling.

“The best wedding I’ve ever been to!”

Dear Max and Team,

Wow! What a wedding! I have lost track of how many people have told us, “This is the best wedding I have ever been to!” We cannot begin to thank you enough for our magnificent wedding. Everything was executed flawlessly. The food, the service, the staff, everything was great. As an owner of multiple restaurants, I have a very critical eye towards food and service. From the original menus, to perfect preparation and elegant presentation, the food was TOP NOTCH. We have received so many compliments on how good the food was. And, not on just one or two items, but every item from that day has been mentioned. This is not your typical wedding food. I am envious of the great people you have working with you. I find it challenging to attract good people. It looks like you have found them all.

Karen and I were so relaxed during the whole day. Once we got to {the venue} we saw how everything was coming together and had no reason to worry. We knew everything was in good hands. Your coordination with all our other vendors was vital. The entire planning process was also very easy and often enjoyable! Who would have thought?! You were very responsive in our needs and getting back to us with answers to our questions.

We’ll definitely be giving you a call the next time we need a caterer.

Thanks again,

David and Karen Schylling

“Many thanks for the superb work…”

“The food was just wonderful and your staff so kind and thoughtful.”

Dear Max,

Thank you so much for catering the luncheon of the Solebury Friends, in honor of my mother. The food was just wonderful and your staff so kind and thoughtful. It was beautifully presented; so thoughtful with the tiered baskets, my mom would have loved them! I do wish you continued success with your catering and would love to get recipes for all the dishes you served!

Thank you again, you and your staff made it so easy.

“The food was incredible, and the style and level of service made ‎it even more incredible. I should know. I run over 20 world class restaurants worldwide…”

Dear Max,

I wanted to write you to express our extreme gratitude and admiration for the job you and your team did in catering the wedding of our son Zach and his bride Brittany in a tent on our farm in Bucks County two weeks ago tonight. The food was incredible, and the style and level of service made ‎it even more incredible. I should know. I run over 20 world class restaurants worldwide, some in partnership with some of the world’s greatest chefs, including Alain Ducasse (the most michelin starred chef in the world). A number of those restaurants are also in world class hotels, where we do all of the banqueting and catering for the hotel, so I clearly know how difficult it can be to turn out a cocktail reception and plated dinner for a large number of people at the same time and have everything come out as if made one at a time. And we don’t do it from a makeshift kitchen in a tent in the middle of a field.
I can not tell you how many wedding guests have said to me that they have never been to a large function where the food was high-end restaurant quality, prepared perfectly. Your emphasis on local, quality ingredients also added to the experience. My son Zach and I are so happy we got the chance to work with you. Even aside from the quality of the end result, you made the entire process a pleasure. Not only are you and your team wonderful to deal with, but professional and extremely flexible. We know food and are very particular. We had extremely high expectations; you and your team exceeded them. My wife and my new daughter in law’s parents were over the moon about what you accomplished.
I am happy to know that you cater outside of the local area and I and my son intend to recommend you to friends of our‎s, many of whom are in NY and the Hamptons, when they are having catered events.  I encourage you to share this letter with any prospective client who can email me at the address above and whom I would be more than happy to speak to personally if they email me with contact information.
Thank you so much for helping us make the wedding of our first son so memorable.
Best to you and your team,
Jeffrey Chodorow, CEO

“The whole night was great…”

Dear Max,

Thank you again for a fantastic event on Sunday! Since this was Habitat’s first signature event, it was particularly important to make an impression- and boy, DID YOU! The food was outstanding. The whole night was great and we wouldn’t have been able to do it without your generosity. I got so much wonderful feedback about you, food and service, I’m hopeful that you will see some new clients from among the guests who attended. It has been such a pleasure to work with you.

Most sincerely,

Dana Balter

“I was lucky to have you on my team.”

Max and Rita,

Many, many heartfelt thanks for such a spectacular event. You two ensured it came together so completely and took it to a level I don’t think many had experienced before. Your are both an absolute pleasure to partner with – your creativity, energy, attention to detail, and flexibility are unprecedented. I was lucky to have you on my team.

Thank you for going the extra mile with the decorations and when solving the hurdles brought on by the rain. Your hard work are much appreciated by all of us. I look forward to working with you both again.

All the best and cheers to you,

Linda Sheldon

“We love working with you…”

Dear Max and Rita,

Just wanted to take a second to thank you for everything you do for us. We love working with you and hope that our future includes hundreds of opportunities to work together. We count you among the people we most believe in, count on, and of course, LOVE! Here’s to an amazing future together, in business, but more importantly, in an everlasting friendship!

“I think what I appreciate the most is your adeptness at picking up on exactly what I had in mind and executing it perfectly.”

Dear Max,

Everything was fabulous!!! Really perfect, exactly what I wanted. People were really impressed with the food and the creativity of the menu. What a great evening. People kept commenting about how they had never seen food like that in Princeton, and the president of the University told me several times that she wanted her personal assistant to have your name at the ready.

Everyone had a lot of fun. I think what I appreciate the most is your adeptness at picking up on exactly what I had in mind and executing it perfectly.

My thanks to everyone,



“This was a dining experience!”

Dear Max, 

I want to thank you for making our wedding day PERFECT!!

The compliments were flowing throughout the weekend and have continued into the week. The food was stellar and considered by many to be the best “wedding food” they’d ever had. LOL!! Wedding food indeed. This was a dining experience! My family is BIG into pies and could not stop raving about them! The lobster was succulent and was enjoyed the following day as well. 

I very much appreciated your ideas and expertise with pulling the event together. Some of the most recent changes to the “vision” like the wild flowers vs. hydrangea on the tables and your wonderful burlap runner on the tables really added to the casual elegance of the night.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
