  • We recently worked with Catering by Dale for our June 3 wedding. We had an incredible experience with them - working both with Dale developing the menu and Mary, the event coordinator. We were in communication with them throughout the year in the planning process, and both were respectful and prompt. The food was delicious & reflected our vision exactly. Mary did an amazing job making the day feel like a breeze - our wedding was all that we dreamt of and that day there was not an ounce of stress or uncertainty about what might happen, she took care of it all!

  • My daughter had a destination autumn wedding in Vt. Dale was great to work with. Most of our correspondences were through email and she was very prompt answering any questions/concerns we had. The food was amazing! Many compliments from our guests. The staff was professional and efficient during the reception. Can't say enough about Wendy, the wedding co-ordinator , she was most helpful, kind and sweet! A great experience working with CBD - making the day that much more special!

  • Catering By Dale was AMAZING. The communication, planning and day of service was perfect. Dale and Cher did such an incredible job, acting as caterers and coordinators day-of making sure everything goes to plan. The food was spectacular. Our family and guests raved about the food. If you're getting married in VT do yourself a favor and give Dale a call. Thanks Dale and Cher!

  • My husband Luc and I got married one year ago today, August 1, 2015. Dale and her team provided absolutely amazing support and service for our wedding! Everyone raved (and still does!) about our food, saying it was the best wedding food they ever had. It was a true pleasure working with Dale, Mary Norton and the team. They were warm and welcoming from the start, and felt like family in the end. I highly recommend Catering by Dale to anyone and everyone! Thank you, Dale!

  • Catering By Dale was wonderful to work with. Dale and Cher (our day-of coordinator) were responsive, and we had no problems. EVERYONE raved about the food. My sister told me it was the best food she's ever had at a wedding. I couldn't eat enough - everything was delicious! We made a special request to include Asian cuisine in our menu, and we had serving stations with a variety of foods (one of the stations was all Asian foods), and we also made special requests for a large amount of vegetarian options. They accommodated all requests, were very organized the day of the wedding, and it was presented beautifully. We had a build-your-own cupcake station with different types of cake and icing (all delicious). They made our wedding cake, too, and I have never eaten a more delicious cake in my life! I cannot say enough good things about Catering By Dale!

  • From the very beginning Dale and her team were amazing, responsive, and not stressful to work with. We were having a summer wedding at a private home and we wanted it to feel fun, not stuffy, but still special and elegant. We had roughly 200 guests. We were living in Boston at the time and were planning the wedding remotely. Dale spent lots of time on the phone/email helping to craft our perfect menu. She was really helpful and giving advise on what was going to be in season at the time. She totally understood the feel we were going for. This was a large wedding at a private home, so lots of logistics to be worked out! Dale and Cher were fantastic with the pre-wedding planning of everything. They were able to work magic behind the scenes and made sure to not stress me out with any issues that may have been happening. Day of the wedding was incredible. Dale and her team are SO professional. I knew the food was going to be amazing and wasn't worried about that, but I could have n... Read more

  • Catering by Dale catered our private event on 12/14 at the Shelburne Museum. I have had experience with CBD in a previous career and knew that I could expect fabulous results with them. The event was for 150 guests and we served heavy passed and stationary appetizers and cocktails. Guests were coming up to us during the entire event complimenting the food. Catering by Dale was responsive before, during and after the event. The staff is extremely professional and attentive! The food is scrumptious! The experience was exceptional! I highly recommend them to anyone that is looking for creative food, good communication and a smooth running event. Thank you Catering by Dale!

  • Dale is wonderful. She is organized, professional, and flexible. Her food is fabulous and she has an extensive menu. Unlike other caterers who have a specific menu, Dale works with each client to craft a personalized menu to fit food preference and budget. The food was delicious and fit our budget perfectly. Cher (Dale's wedding coordinator) was efficient, organized, and kind. She helped make the wedding go smoothly!

  • Catering By Dale food was amazing! Cher (the event coordinator) and her team did a great job on the day of our wedding! Unfortunately, there was alot of confusion in our planning process because we also had our own event planner. I would like to advise everybody that if you choose to go with Catering By Dale make Cher your ONLY day of event coordinator and do not hire anybody else. Overall, Catering by Dale offered a great service and delicious food! I That being said, I must agree with a few other reviews that there is a lack of communication and paperwork on their end if you are planning a wedding from abroad. Pre- wedding communication was a struggle, but this could have been caused by our wedding planner. Thank you Cher and Dale! Marie

  • I will start off by saying that the food provided by Catering by Dale was spectacular. Everything was delicious and even my pickiest friends and family stuffed themselves. My sister couldn't stop raving about the vegetarian vegetable stacks with polenta and my friends are still talking about the pumpkin curry soup served at cocktail hour. The staff was so friendly and invited everyone up for seconds. The day-of experience really was great. That being said, it was nearly impossible to get in touch with CBD before the wedding. I was planning the wedding from a distance and it often took Dale over a week to respond to my emails. There was no contract to sign, the menu was printed in all caps, and the client questionnaire was a confusing mess. I didn't find this to be very professional and it was extremely frustrating. It's a shame, because this company could really be top-notch if they got their paperwork together.

  • Thank you to all the staff at Catering by Dale! Not only did Dale manage to create a fantastic menu, but she did it all in a venu that didn't even have a kitchen. Not only was the food great, but the site coordinator, Mary Norton was incredibly helpful. She did a walk through with us in the weeks before the ceremony and reception and planned everything down to the minute!

  • Dale and her team were great! The food was absolutely fantastic and the service she provided was great. Cher, the event coordinator, was so responsive and accommodating. She really put me at ease that everything would be done the way I wanted. Dale and her team accommodated all of our requests without question.

  • The food was absolutely amazing! Delicious, colorful, with beautiful plate presentation. We loved that local ingredients were used and that signage was provided. Slightly pricey, but if food is a high priority on your list, you won't be disappointed. Just be sure to talk through all unique requests ahead of time as we had some surprises a week prior to the wedding.

  • The food is amazing. Communicating long distance with CBD is terrible. There seems to be a lack of communication between the staff, and via email or phone they are not very helpful. In person during the tasting Dale was helpful with recommendations for food, but in advance of that it was hard to get much advice - which is helpful if you are planning a wedding for the first time. Don't mention the word local food they increase the price, but essentially by local anyway. The day of they provide someone to oversee the schedule, but they don't do anything outside of that, like coordinate other vendors, so don't assume - step up to the role yourself or assign it to someone else.
