  • We had a wonderful experience with 12th Street Catering at our wedding; we initially had a contract with another caterer, but due to shifting preferred vendors at our venue, we ended up switching to 12th St. Harry was incredibly understanding, and made us feel very comfortable- and the food was AMAZING. He made sure that we were taken care of during the reception- bringing us our own tray of appetizers and making sure our glasses were full. Additionally, we had some last minute changes in the guest list, which Harry was very generous to accomodate, which made the evening even more special. We had several guest with allergies, and Harry made sure to adjust the menu accordingly so that there would not be any cross-contamination. He also worked seamlessly with our band to coordinate clearing and serving dishes, so that our speeches were not interrupted by clanging dishes and everything went smoothly. Highly recommended!

  • 12th Street Catering did a fantastic job at our daughter's wedding reception this past weekend - everything was perfect - outstanding food, impeccable service, and a touch of "First Class" to every part of the process. I especially want to give a very special shout out to Harry who was at the very center of this successful event. Harry was amazing in every way - professional, responsive, very thorough, and just a great guy and an absolute pleasure to work with. I had complete confidence the evening would be flawless because I trusted Harry and knew he had our backs. He is a gem along with his wonderful staff. My guests could not stop raving about how wonderful the evening was so thank you Harry and 12th Street!

  • My husband and I were transferred to 12th Street Catering after another caterer fell short in their duties. Harry was a consummate professional, and the quality of the planning and cuisine was superb. We never worried about them dropping the ball; they were extremely flexible -- going above and beyond to meet our needs. Harry is also as responsive--if not more--than any vendor we've ever worked with. There was thorough documentation, understanding of our concern areas, and a willingness to make sure we were happy that came across in all our interactions. At the end of the wedding we were sad to see Harry and his team go! You will not be disappointed!!!

    Liz, thank you so much for allowing 12th Street Catering to be part of your special day! You and Mike were amazing to work with. I know a transition like that is never easy. It was truly our pleasure to help bring your vision to life! We would love the opportunity to work with you again in the future. Wishing you both all the best!

  • I cannot rave more about 12th St. and particularly Harry who turned family. From the moment my husband and parents met with Harry for our food tasting and consultation we knew we were in good hands. Harry made himself available for every email, phone call, and walk through to make sure we were comfortable. Can I just say the food was PHENOMENAL and I am VERY picky! My guests even raved about cocktail hour and main course selections. During our wedding Harry always made sure he was close enough to us (with a tray of food) to ensure we had everything we needed at all times. Couldn't ask for better.

    Alexandra, thank you for the kind words! You and Jeremy are practically part of our 12th Street family now!! It was an honor getting to be a part of your big day. So glad all your friends and family had such a lovely time celebrating the two of you. We look forward to the opportunity to team up together again in the future!

  • We had looked at a few other packages and were incredibly excited to see that 12th Street seemed to provide a great set of sophisticated yet crowd-pleasing menu options at a much more affordable price than the other vendors we were looking at. As we went through the process, Harry Pierson was absolutely amazing, from initially talking us through our options before getting ready for the tasting itself. He talked us through a lot of the questions we had to help figure out the best menu options for our guests. We definitely have some friends who are beer snobs, and Harry also helped us make sure we had the right package for them. As we went through the process, Harry was also super helpful in providing feedback on how the entire reception would flow, working closely with our venue to make sure everything worked well for the timeline of the party. He was always super responsive and helpful. Once we were at the reception, everything was great - our friends and families all commented on how ... Read more

  • Not only was this the best wedding food I've ever had, but it was probably in my top 10 meals and that's coming from two people who are OBSESSED with food! All of our guests said how amazing the food was and it was truly unbelievable. For appetizers we had: grilled lambchops with a lavender dipping sauce, ahi tuna sesame cones, olive oil sweet cakes with goat cheese, and jumbo shrimp cocktail. We cut out the cheese display because of the price, but because Marianne was such an amazing vendor and host, she threw it in as a surprise for us all! The main course was a buffet style of pumpkin raviolis in sage butter sauce, pecan crusted chicken with a rum jungle glaze, and espresso steak with sides of roasted garlic broccoli, fall vegetables, and brown rice pilaf. So many of our guests told us how they went up to seconds and thirds, and one cousin told me the pumpkin ravioli was, "revolutionary!" Beyond amazing staff and beyond amazing food, even when produced for 120 guests! Thank you to 1... Read more

  • Genna and the team at 12th Street Catering did a fantastic job. They were flexible, worked with our budget, and professional. They pay attention to the details, are happy to answer questions and provide you all the options and alternate scenarios, and their food is delicious. Our tiramisu-inspired cutting cake especially was phenomenal. They also did a great job of keeping track of the bride and groom on our wedding day - making sure that we ate and that things went according to plan. I can't speak highly enough of them!

  • I can't say enough good things about 12th Street Catering. Our event planner, Kelli, worked with me by email and telephone over a few months as our plans evolved for a pre-wedding celebration. She was prompt and helpful through every step and we chose a menu that was perfect for the hot summer evening and the casual atmosphere we wanted. The catering staff were also spectacular...efficient and friendly and hard-working. Our friends and relatives loved the food and we got many compliments about how beautiful it looked and how delicious it was. Thank you, 12th Street Catering!!!!

  • I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Food and music were the 2 most important things to us when it came to the reception - the food was fantastic! We had so many guests tell us the food was delicious. The staff was also friendly and responsive, which helped me feel relaxed and confident on my wedding day.

  • We used 12th street catering for our wedding in October 2015 and they were amazing. We worked closely with Estie, the catering event planner, for months before the wedding and she was amazing. She answered all our questions and worked out all the details with us. The staff was very nice and professional during the wedding as well. We didn't have a wedding planner or coordinator, so they helped out whenever we felt lost about what happens next. I mention all this before I even mentioned the food which was awesome. We could only try some of the entree and appetizer choices during the official tasting and we had to base out final choices on the limited tasting. However, all the food at the tasting was awesome and the tasting itself was a lot of fun. The food at the wedding was perfect and it was enjoyed by all, even our picky eater relatives. I would highly recommend, specifically Estie, and in general 12th street for any catered event.

  • Simply put, 12th Street Catering blows my freaking mind. The level of service this company provides is unrivaled. I have never had such a pleasant experience working with a group of people. Michele and her staff are all so very kind, professional and accommodating. I guarantee you will not find a company more capable of making your event an exceptional experience. Oh, and did I mention the food? Because holy crap, their food is out of this world. I won't claim to be familiar with the catering business, but preparing a hot and delicious meal made with love for hundreds of people seems a Herculean task to me. 12th Street makes it seems like a breeze. Choose 12th Street Catering for your event and you will not be disappointed. They are a huge part of the reason me and my wife's wedding day was as magical as it was. I cannot recommend this company enough.

  • Lisa and Genna and the entire 12th Street team are amazing! They catered both our rehearsal dinner and wedding and we couldn't have been more pleased. All of our guests raved about the food but more importantly the service was perfection. Lisa and Genna were constantly in touch and nailed every single detail. We can't thank you enough!

  • We had Lisa as our contact throughout the wedding planning process and SHE. WAS. AWESOME. The whole company is great- they focus on sustainable and local foods, but the prices were totally reasonable. And the menus! Oh my god! There was so much to choose from, and if they don't have what you're looking for, they'll make it. The food was affordable and high quality. We had pulled pork at our wedding and our Southern guests only had compliments for the chef, so that's something. Lisa was both fun and professional and always there to help and give advice on all aspects of the wedding when asked. Of all our wedding vendors, 12th street was the only one where we never felt pressured to do or buy anything or spend outside our budget, and they were certainly the only vendor that never made us feel like we were being taken for a ride or upcharged for having a wedding. We're excited to find an excuse to have them cater another event in our family. They're the best!!

  • Michele and her team were fantastic. We picked a stations menu and I had concerns about how many things would look and happen. They put all my fears at ease and we had a beautiful reception and cocktail hour. My guests raved about how excellent the food and service was. They were sensitive to my budget and there was plenty of food for everyone. Our food tasting was the best meal of my fiancé and I ever had. We highly recommend them and I look forward to working with them again for another event in the future.
