  • Working with Sterling Affair on our wedding was fantastic. Kim, Juan, and the entire staff were so accommodating to our dietary restrictions with the food, but also at times even acting as surrogate wedding coordinators for all the handling of vendors and contracts they did. All the guests raved about the food, and their baker was incredible - people texted me the next day asking who made the cake because they wanted their own! Sterling definitely threw in surprise perks for us and answered every harried bride and groom email we sent over 8 months of planning. Would definitely recommend them to anyone getting married or hosting an event.

  • We can't say enough about how wonderful it was to work with Sterling. The entire experience was delightful from start to finish. We were first connected to Sterling by the Newark Museum, our venue (which chose Sterling as their exclusive caterer earlier this year). We went in for a tasting at their offices in North Jersey and were immediately impressed: the food they offered us to sample was a cut above the other caterers we'd tried. In the run-up to our big day, we spoke to Sterling's staff extensively--sometimes as often as 2-3 times a day. Our principal contact was Maureen Pescatore, who is now Sterling's onsite coordinator at the Museum. Maureen was nothing short of incredible. She was extremely patient as we changed our minds over and over, while still making gentle suggestions about how to improve the flow of the evening. On the day itself, we were simply blown away: Sterling served outstanding food--truly the best wedding food we'd ever had (many of our guests said the same). Th... Read more

  • Planning our wedding with Sterling Affairs- Peter and Olivia specifically- was such a pleasure!! They made sure every single detail was accounted for- and even offered their services beyond the actual catering to coordinate all of our rentals with our wedding planners. They had staff on site that made sure all of our rentals were delivered to our venue the day before our wedding, even though we got married in the Hamptons, quite a distance from their main kitchen! We had our own designated staff member who attended to our every need. They even went above and beyond to accommodate my husband's desire to have specialty beer kegs at our reception from a micro-brewery in Brooklyn. From beginning to end, Sterling was an incredible vendor, and I cannot recommend them more highly!!

  • We cannot more highly recommend Sterling Affair (the staff we worked with I believe were based out of the NJ location - ?) -- their service, food, presentation and everything were beyond perfect. Case in point: we had several francophones in attendance and they loved the cheese! If you have spoken to a French national about cheese, you would know -- they don't waste their time on bad cheese. The food was INCREDIBLE. For the 5 seconds that we had a chance to wolf down the bites, my god, the pumpkin squash burnt butter ravioli or tortellini -- holy moly. And the prime rib. We got a chance to really eat because of the packed dinner they sent us home with. THAT IS SERVICE. The desserts and coffee were beyond. ALL our guests were raving. This was 4 star restaurant level catering, people. And the service -- unbelievably lovely. The manager, Rachel, was so lovely to work with. VERY patient. There was this petite red haired lady who was at our beck and call -- she was like Jessica Fletcher cr... Read more

  • Two things were talked about the most on and after my wedding day - the music and the food. People were just constantly blown away by how delicious and unique the food was. Sterling provided drinks pre-ceremony, bartended and served appetizers during the cocktail hour, and served plated dinner at reception. They also did my wedding cake and a dessert table at the end of the night. I was so happy with everything! The food exceeded our expectations and the staff were extremely helpful and professional. My husband and I also had an assigned server for the evening to make sure we were fed! They were also one of the most pleasant vendors to work with throughout the planning process. Peter specifically was a true gem. He was always available when I wanted to discuss the menu, made himself available multiple times to come visit the venue to do walkthroughs with other vendors, and set up the most delightful tasting of the appetizers and dinner for me and my family - AND a separate tasting for ...

  • We chose Sterling Affair for our April 2015 wedding reception and they wowed us! Our point of contact was Chuck Adams, who made the planning for our wedding a pleasure. Chuck is detail oriented and so nice! He gave us excellent, timely communication through every step of the event planning as well as on the day of our event. The added benefit of working with Sterling Affair is that they also work with a rental company and liquor vendor! Those were two less things we had to worry about. The food surpassed our expectations and the presentation was beautiful! Chuck worked with us to make sure every guest with dietary restrictions/allergies would enjoy our event. We were also able to customize our sit-down menu to include 2 entrée choices and a vegetarian option. The servers were not only very attentive to us, but to every guest at our wedding. The servers were friendly, helpful and went out of their way to make sure everyone at our event enjoyed the day. We were so impressed! ... Read more

  • I cannot even begin to express how pleased my husband and I were with Sterling Affair for our wedding this week. The food was absolutely delicious (many commented that it was the best they've ever had at a wedding) and the service was spectacular. From the tasting to the wedding day, the staff at Sterling Affair treated us so well - we felt very special! Everything was very well coordinated, organized, and they added little touches to make everything look beautiful. I definitely recommend them without reservation.

    Thank you for the tremendous compliments. We love what we do and are so privileged to have been a part of your most special day. Here's to many happy years ahead and good food always!

  • Sterling Affair provided amazing food for our wedding that my guests are still raving about! Everything was great from the passed hors dourves to the cocktail stations, the food buffet, and the desserts. They were very accommodating with letting me pick some of my must-have desserts. I am so glad they were the catering service at Studio Square for my wedding!

  • Thank you Sterling Affair for helping to make our wedding celebration perfect! From start to finish, Sterling Affair was the perfect choice...easy to work with, responsive, flexible...and out of this world food! Rachael was great to work with, fitting this out-of-town couple in for our tasting during the busy holiday season and helping us pick the perfect menu (including a few s'mores-themed desserts instead of a cake). All of our guests raved about how good the food was and how impressed they were that each and every scallop served during cocktail hour was cooked perfectly. We selected three stations for the main dinner and were so happy with our choices...there were tons of Sterling Affair staff on hand to make sure that everyone moved through the lines quickly and that there was plenty of delicious, piping hot food on hand. The sushi, skirt steak, mac and cheese, and pad thai were the crowd favorites, but everything was delicious. A fantastic meal for our perfect night!

  • I had heard great things about Sterling Affair before hiring them for my wedding, and was beyond thrilled when they exceeded my expectations. Our event manager, Rachael, took us through the entire process. The tasting was incredible and made choosing tough. We went with sea bass and filet as our entree options, and both we cooked to perfection according to our guests. Rachael coordinated so many of our other vendors including our photographer, florist and entertainment, and took responsibility for making sure everything was in place for our bid day. And she nailed it! She was on-hand throughout the entire event, running it better than the wedding planner we hired. A particularly nice touch Sterling Affair offered was including a wedding cake in our package that I was able to custom design (look, flavors, shape, etc) with their in-house pastry chef. It was very personal to our wedding theme, and it tasted amazing!! If food is as important to your wedding as it was to ours, you absolutel... Read more

  • Oh Sterling where to begin, We first fell in love with your food at the tasting and couldn’t wait for the Wedding day to try it all again [we did try and get Christine to make up some sort of event so we could come back for another tasking but she was having none of it haha]. The food during the cocktail hour was as great as we remembered it, guests were raving about the Brussels sprout leaves, Hubby couldn’t get enough of the prawns and I basically loved EVERYTHING. On to the meal itself, WOW!! The soup/salad combo was excellent, the main courses were out of this world, and of the plates I saw they were all clear, not a scrap of food left on any of them > speaks for itself. And the puddings up on the terrace, I’m so glad we did this as opposed to a sit down dessert, and all our guests loved it. I think the favourite was the oreo milkshake :-) you’d think that’d be enough food for us but no, we still had our late night snacks to come. You guys did us proud with the haggis ... Read more

    Thank you so much for this glowing review!! You were such a great couple to work with and it was such fun incorporating some of your traditions into the menu. We can't wait for you to come back to us to throw another party! All the best to you both.

  • Sterling Affair catered my 85-guest wedding, including hors d'oeuvres for cocktail hour, a plated dinner, wedding cake & passed desserts. Catering turned out to be by far the largest financial investment of our wedding, but one that absolutely paid off. Guests told us the food (especially the cake) was the best they'd had at any wedding they'd been to. We were pleased with every single menu selection we made, and there were so many incredible options to choose from. Their service was also stellar -- the whole team worked together beautifully with our day-of-coordinator to execute each component of the wedding. If food is a priority for your wedding, definitely put Sterling Affair at the top of your list for caterers, and schedule a tasting at their NJ headquarters!

  • Sterling Affair was absolutely phenomenal! Our catering manager, Christina, did a fabulous job for our wedding. So many people commented on how delicious the food was...best food they ever had at a wedding. It wasn't cheap, but I'm a big foodie and I knew going in that's where the majority of the budget would go. The tasting alone was an excellent experience and everything we ate on the wedding day was just as good. I cannot say how pleased I was with how everything turned out. They covered all the bases. People even commented on how attentive the wait staff was. My favorite quote of the night "The scallops were cooked PER-FECT-LY!!!! DO YOU SEE HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE HERE?!" and again a comment on our guest book "The scallops were as perfect as you two." haha Thank you Sterling Affair!!!

    Thank you so much for your glowing praise. We pride ourselves as much on our service as we do our food, and we're thrilled to be permanently credited in your guestbook. Yeah! Here's wishing you many happy and healthy years of marriage. We look forward to serving you and your loved ones at your next important event.

  • Sterling Affair was actually our only option for catering (based on our venue) but we couldn't have been any happier- they were amazing. The menu options were so diverse with a wide range of seasonal offerings and everything was delicious! We had multiple people tell us that it was the best filet mignon they'd ever had at a wedding and they loved the soup first course- and our cocktail hour was a hit (thanks to the Sterling Affair team that customized a taco bar and Old Fashioned station for us, among all the other delicious apps). And not only was the food delicious, it was also beautifully presented and served perfectly timed and at a perfect temperature- made it even better. It was all so good- we wish we had more reasons to organize tastings and try out all the other seasonal items!
