  • Our August 2018 wedding at the James A. Michener Museum was coordinated by Terri Fair, from Catering By Design. Firstly, she is phenomenal. As we (bride and groom) were busy working professionals planning and paying for our own event from a distance, we needed minimal, flexibly scheduled in-person meetings. Terri accommodated us an, importantly, kept us on schedule with arranging vendors and making big decisions. On the day of the event, we didn't have to think about anything - Terri handled it all. If there were any problems, we never knew about them. The entire afternoon and evening unfolded flawlessly. The food was delicious (the options available are diverse and inventive - LOVED the falafel appetizers), and the servers were attentive and friendly. Truly, nothing was lacking - it was a perfect evening, thanks to Terri, and the chefs and staff of Catering By Design.

  • I had a wonderful experience working with Catering by Design for my wedding! Their food is delicious, and there are many package options available in addition to the opportunity to create your own menu. They were also able to accommodate for my gluten allergy, which is very appreciated. The service of the waitstaff and bartenders was great, and Mendy, Kelli, and the rest of the team were a pleasure to work with. Thank you for helping to make our day so special!

  • We used Catering by Design for our wedding at Barclay Villa in Angier. Kelli is an absolute dream to work with! She is very responsive through email and phone calls. We went by several times to nail down the menu as well as pick out linens for all the tables and Kelli was always friendly and super helpful. She even came to the final walk through at the venue, which made a huge impression on me! The food was absolutely out of this world! We chose the BBQ and chicken when green beans and mac and cheese. It was all so good and we had so many guests come up to us both during the reception and afterwards, talking about how wonderful the food was, especially the mac and cheese! There is also a huge selection of linens, plates, silverware, napkins, etc... to choose from, so I would recommend using them for rentals as well as food! I've also heard they do a great job with events other than weddings, as well! I will definitely be using them again!

  • The Catering By Design team did an amazing job at our daughter's wedding this weekend. The food was just wonderful, the presentation was superb and the hard-working staff was also friendly and fun. They were very helpful and accommodating during the planning stages and just took care of everything for us the night of the wedding. I just cannot recommend them highly enough.

  • We loved catering by design! They helped us customize our menu, gave us a new quote each time we changed something (which was frequently), and the day of our wedding everything was perfect. The food was incredible, but what all of our guests commented on was the professionalism of the staff. They were curteous, responsive, and seemed to melt into the background. The boxes they packed for us for a late night meal were the icing on the cake! I'd highly recommend them to anyone looking for an amazing caterer!

  • Catering by Design..OMG!!! I simply have to say outstanding..I loved, loved, loved the food..I overdosed on bacon..lol The breakfast was catered for my job site and there was more than enough. Your servers were amazing, friendly, easy to engage in conversation with, polite, on time, and the only thing I need to do was eat and sign the receipt. I didn't even need to get up and discard my empty plate..none of the employees did. Thank you for a wonderful experience and great food!!! looking forward to having you all come back in the New Year.

  • Catering by Design was recommended by our venue (NC Botanical Gardens) which only allows caterers that follow their recycling standards. This was for my daughter's bat mitzvah reception. The food was amazing and the staff were great to work with. We were able to adjust menu options to fit our needs and budget. The caterering team was in touch with us several weeks before the event to firm up details and easily accessible days before for last minute communications. Everything was beautifully set up and seamlessly executed- not that I payed attention to much -all I noted was that people were eating, drinking and enjoying themselves from start to finish! When staff had questions during the event, they were always polite and couteous. We highly recommend this caterer!

  • We used Catering by Design for my son's brunch wedding. Wendy was wonderful to work with, but unfortunately their food was not as wonderful. Though the service, presentation and quantity was very good, the breakfast items were not kept warm. We were very disappointed because of the cold eggs, hash browns and pulled pork. Hopefully the leftovers will warm up well.
