  • Classic Catering was one of 3 caterers that we could chose from for our venue (George Peabody Library). We couldn't have been happier with how things turned out. Lynn Piette, our contact, has been doing weddings at the George Peabody Library for years so she is very familiar with the venue and all of their rules which was very helpful. When we went in for our first meeting Lynn had lunch ready for us as a way for us to have a preview of their food & we were able to take home any of the leftovers that we wished to take. The tasting was just as good. My dad & stepmother who went with us also could not stop raving about the food. The day of food was absolutely amazing (people are still telling me how wonderful it was) and the service was excellent. My husband & I had an assigned server who made sure we had all the food & drinks we wanted all night. Lynn was always very quick to respond to my emails (obviously they are busy on weekends as that is when they work most but even then I had... Read more

  • Classic Catering is top notch from start to finish!! If you have a wedding in MD and have the option to use them, you HAVE TO. They are worth every penny and go above and beyond in every aspect of the wedding. They take pride in their work, train their staff to a T, and I cannot forget to mention their food is amaaazing. Even my father-in-law who thinks everyone who has a wedding, overpays, admitted that this was 100% worth it! We received so many compliments about the cocktail hour and dinner items. Not only was the food great, but the bar and table service was on-point. My friends said that during our many speeches, the servers would continue to fill up wine glasses so no one was thirsty or bored :-) I worked with David throughout the process and he was an absolute delight. He was quick to respond to any questions, was very helpful in deciding on details, and he even put on my veil (which I had forgotten on another floor) before I walked down the aisle! What I noted the most is th... Read more

  • I honestly don't know where to begin! Lynn and her team at The Classic Catering People were beyond fantastic! From our first initial meeting, I had no doubt that CCP was going to be my top choice for catering. Lynn and her team made us feel welcome from the moment we walked through the door. She listened to every thought, plan and idea we had and was somehow able to incorporate all of our requests! I thought this was impossible since by father is very picky about food. Through the entire planning process and up until a month out from the wedding, Lynn was able to accommodate every last minute change, which was amazing! She even was able to provide us with suggestions and feedback based on her experience with past weddings. I have heard nothing but great things from my other vendors as well. They said that every single Classic Catering Employee was easy and delightful to work with! Now the food, OH MY GOSH, amazing! From the appetizers, to the main course and even the dessert! Everyth...

  • We used Classic Catering for our sons wedding at the Lord Baltimore Hotel in Baltimore. It was perfect!! Our primary contact was David Atkinson who worked with Larry Frank, and they bent over backwards to give us just what we asked for. It was a pleasure from the Tasting through the coordination of events until the Big day - no hitches! The food was delicious, the cocktail hour was fantastic - where the food just kept coming, and the alcohol never ran out- If you had any special requests they did whatever we requested. Great staff to help make the entire evening just go way too fast. And the wedding cake they provided was AMAZING! I would so recommend using Classic Catering for your wedding, or any other events you have - even classic to go. I cannot thank them enough for they part in making our wedding so very special!!

  • Classic Catering People was Amazing! Lynn Piette and her team were great from start to finish. They welcomed us and created a great experience for our tasting. Lynn helped organize and coordinate everything from the table settings and decorations to the other vendors. Finally, the food was superb! We had multiple guests tell us that the food was the best they've ever had at a wedding. We would recommend Classic and Lynn to anyone else who is trying to decide on a caterer for your wedding, especially if you are planning a wedding at the Peabody Library. Of the 3 preferred vendors, Classic came the most highly recommended and was very responsive and friendly.

  • We worked with Kelly at Classic for our wedding and it was an absolute pleasure! She helped us to plan a fun and creative menu of stations that was exactly what we wanted! Our friends and family are still telling us that it was the best wedding food they've ever had! Kelly is incredibly friendly and easy to work with - she's very responsive and quick with both fun and practical suggestions and advice. Her staff were also wonderful! They made sure that my husband and I and our parents had the opportunity to try all the appetizers - they brought us out a special tray while we were taking photos. They also made sure that we ate during dinner and they we always had a drink if we wanted one. They were the best!! I can't recommend Classic enough!

  • We were hoping to bring food from our restaurant of choice but the Peabody allows only 3 caterers. It was a bummer to find that out but I reached out to all three. Classic Catering responded quickly and enthusiastically to our request for middle eastern/Afghan cuisine. Chef John went out of his way to do a tasting for us based on some recipes Id shared with him. Not only was Classic Catering accommodating but the chef was genuinely excited to create a new menu for us. Larry was a pleasure to work with. He was upfront and honest about everything. Ill always remember him saying to me: It’s my job to say “Yes” to your requests, we will almost never say “no”. He and his team came through on that promise. Lynn was my point of contact throughout. She’s confident and has the answers to all your questions—and not just questions about food and beverage. I was asking her about all sorts of things: Should I do a basket for the bathrooms? do these linens clash with my cocktail tab... Read more

  • Between Larry Frank and Terri Young, we always knew it was going to turn out great and it was better than that. They dealt with a difficult, (non-standard) location that had shifting requirements and did it with a smile and no complaining. We had "A Taste of Classic" and the food was delectable, the service was always where we needed them and they anticipated needs we didn't know of. It was a let-down when the reception was over because everything had come off so well and beautifully. We cannot thank them enough!

    responded with the following comments.

    Good evening, Terri and I along with our entire team we thrilled to help you celebrate. I will be sure to pass on your comments to "The People" of The Classic Catering People. They are the real stars.

  • Lynn with Classic was absolutely amazing! We met her about 2 years before our wedding (we started planning very early) and she was with us 100% the whole time! She knew our venue like the back of her hand, and made very helpful suggestions throughout the planning process. She also took our thoughts and ideas and made them work in the space. We didn't have to do anything the day of... her on site team was perfect. Our guests couldn't stop raving about the food and service, never had any trouble getting drinks, and were so impressed with the "follow up trays" for garbage after the passed hors d'ouvres! We could never have had such a perfect and seamless wedding without Lynn - we want to make her part of our family!

  • We used The Classic Catering People for our wedding and could not have been happier with our choice. From our initial contact with them up until the lights came on at the end of the night of our wedding, Classic was incredible. We worked with Nicole Van Natta and found her to be superlative in every sense. Nicole and Classic went above and beyond our expectations. From our initial consultation, Nicole helped us tailor a menu with delicious options based on our unique tastes and utilizing fresh, seasonal, specialties. She was patient and helpful as we selected choices to taste, and then provided us with a truly memorable tasting at Classic's facilities in Maryland. We were shocked at how professional and detail oriented the tasting went, and it was probably the highlight of our planning process. Leading up to the wedding, Nicole stayed with us as we made last minute changes. In doing so, she was always quick to respond and more than accommodating. She even helped us with multiple ...

  • We had a great feeling about Classic Catering People from the moment we called to schedule a tasting for our wedding at the Peabody Library in Baltimore. The Peabody Library only allows three pre-approved caterers, and after poor interactions with the two other catering companies, we were really hoping that Classic Catering People would be a much better fit. After a year of planning and a wonderful wedding, we couldn't have made a better decision than to work with Lynn and Classic Catering People! We were assigned Lynn Piette as our point of contact and when we arrived at their offices, we were greeted warmly and noticed a chalkboard sign saying “Welcome Sarah and Carter”. These little touches really made a difference. We were shown to the staging room that was clean and already decorated. The room also had a nice window into the kitchen area so we could see the Chef and his staff working in action, which was a really cool touch! The server who assisted Lynn with the tasting was p...

  • My husband and I couldn't have been happier with how things went for our big day. All of our guests loved the food and couldn't stop raving about how delicious everything was. They especially loved the cocktail hour and couldn't believe how many hor d'oeuvres were served. Normally, everyone has to fight over getting enough to snack on during cocktail hour but all of our guests were able to have their fill. They also loved our signature drink! Overall, the whole reception was flawless. The timing of all of the different courses was so perfect. And the desserts and late night snacks were a huge hit as well. The service was impeccable and the staff did a fabulous job making sure our guests and specially my husband and myself were taken care of. Lynn Piette was the person who worked with us and she was amazing from day one. Answering all of our questions in a timely manner and really helping us make sure we had all of our details set. Worth every penny!

  • Classic Catering did an unbelievable job with our wedding. When we first tried other caterers and received proposals from them, we were frustrated by many companies' unwillingness to let us design our own menu--instead, they were insistent upon proposing their own menu with foods we had never recommended. In contrast, Bobby Pressman from Classic was truly one of the most flexible and accommodating people to work with, and he allowed us to choose from a long list and tell him exactly which foods we wanted to have served. We are still hearing rave reviews about the food, especially the made-to-order milkshakes and the donut stand we chose (instead of cake). Everything was executed seamlessly and food was hot and exactly as planned--truly excellent service. The only improvement we would suggest was sometimes a lack of responsiveness--to be expected, I suppose, as they are constantly executing events. Overall awesome experience!

  • I worked with David Atkinson for catering for my wedding. David is amazing! He is so knowledgeable and so much fun to work with. Classic's food is top notch. Everything was delicious. Every single guest commented on how amazing the food was--from the passed hors deourves to the entree of filet and crab cakes to the delicious wedding cake. Additionally, the wait and bar staff are a joy. They were so sweet and made a point to say congratulations to my new husband and I.

  • Our daughter's wedding was held at the Lord Baltimore Hotel. Knowing that Classic was catering the event, from the beginning we felt like we were in excellent hands. David Atkinson was who we were working with. All we can say is how accommodating and how attentive he was to our needs. Our changes were met without question. The food was excellent, service and the staff top notch!!! We received many many compliments on the food and service from our guests. Our daughter, the bride, had a wonderful server who go her whatever she wanted!! My in laws who needed to stay seated through out the cocktail hour could not believe how they were waited on and we're delighted to find that the same attendant would be with them during the reception and again he met all their needs! We had a brunch the following day and again the service, staff and food was wonderful!! All we can say is that David Atkinson, Gail Kaplan, Terry Young and Larry Frank and all the rest of the Classic staff made our daughter's... Read more
