  • 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.

  • 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

  • WE couldn't have had a better caterer. They were on top of every detail from the selection of the menu, to the tasting and the wedding. Everyone commented that this was the best food ever at a wedding and the best service. As the mother of the bride, I felt totally confident. Their servers are amazing too. I never had to blink and a server was asking me if I needed anything. The timing and presentation of everything was also perfect. Thank you Bobby and Larry for doing such an A+ job!

  • Dealing with Lynn Piette at Classic was absolutely wonderful. She was so helpful, especially since I did not have a wedding planner. She and Classic not only provided the best food ever, but she helped with coordinating the decor, flowers, and wedding cake. I could not have asked for better service.

  • Kelly went above and beyond to customize our wedding meal. The first sample menus we saw seemed a little stuffy for our taste, so I told her my fave local restaurants and they customized the menu perfectly! Our tasting was fabulous and we signed with them right away. They were so accommodating throughout the year for all of our specific requests-- from imported ham from Spain to real eggwhites in our drinks, they made it happen! When it was clear it was going to rain on our wedding day, Kelly called me to go over our contingency plans and made sure we would still have a great experience. The staff was amazing. If you're interested in actually being able to eat your delish wedding food, I highly recommend classic! They assigned a waitress just to us. She brought us food right after the ceremony (we were doing photos and therefore missing cocktail hour), piled up a huge plate of food & drinks for us to eat during our MoH & best man toasts and made sure we got to eat our dinner too....

  • We worked with Nicole Van Natta of the Classic Catering People and she was WONDERFUL!! All of our guests raved about the delicious food and especially the passed hors d'ouevres. Nicole was extremely accommodating and flexible in the preparations and helping us schedule our tastings while we worked out the menu. She ensured that we had a dedicated server at the reception who kept us well fed and brought us drinks. Nicole and her team provided all of the linens and the dance floor too. The tasting was really fun since they present everything as it will be presented in at the reception. She was also very patient and handled some of our last minute adjustments to the signature cocktail and guest count. Overall we had an extremely positive experience. Nicole and Class Catering are very professional and handle all of the details with exquisite care. Thanks for helping us have a great wedding!

  • My wife and I had our wedding reception at the National Aquarium, and was placed in contact with Nicole Van Natta and the Classic Catering People as one of their official catering companies. We were very pleased with Nicole and the CCP's work! From the beginning planning stages, Nicole was very open to suggestions and ideas about how to create the best food and drink for our guests. Having worked extensively with the National Aquarium, she was familiar with the layout of the exhibits and dining rooms, and could provide us good advice about the structure of the evening. We loved the opportunity to try a variety of samples of hor d'oeuvres and main courses to select the best ones for us. Nicole and the CCP also helped us with linens, and put out the centerpieces on the night of the reception. The CCP also made a custom wedding cake, as well as a special mixed drink for the evening! The night went very smoothly and beautifully. The food was delicious, the service was prompt and polite, ou... Read more
