  • We went with Rich because our venue had been using him for their events for the last few years and we knew why! First and foremost, Rich's food was delicious. Our guests were raving about how tasty all the dishes were. We did a buffet-style so that our guests could get seconds if they'd like and a large percentage of them did. Second, Rich was great at communicating and making sure that we'd have the right amount of server staffing for our amount of guests. He clearly let us know what he needed from us and was often just a quick email away to answer any questions. The servers were so professional throughout the reception and set-up and tore down our reception with amazing efficiency. Lastly, Rich was extremely affordable and not pushy in trying to upsell us. He even gave us recommendations on things we can provide ourselves to save some costs with him. I would highly recommend Rich for your wedding or event.

  • One of the best decisions we made during wedding planning was hiring Catering By Rich for our wedding. Don't be confused by his simple website design or prices that feel to low to be real. Rich is a down to earth guy that loves what he does and does it with perfection. The food was incredible, the staff he brought with him were professional, the advice he provided was sound and the entire experience working with him could not have been better. A week later and we are still getting texts about our food and how delicious it was. We would not hesitate to hire Rich again for any party, big or small. You will not be sorry!

  • Rich was a lifesaver. We had no idea how we were going to afford the wedding of our dreams, but Rich made it happen! He actually stayed in our budget and helped us pick the most delicious food. We got so many compliments on everything. The servers were amazing on the day of, and they always made sure things were running smoothly. It is rare to find a caterer who is so upfront about the cost, and who actually wants to fit everything into your budget. If you are looking for delicious food that doesn't break the bank, Rich is the guy for you.

  • Very happy with our entire experience with Catering by Rich. Lots of choices, all delicious and affordable. Rich even hosted a tasting at his home for my daughter and her fiancé, which really helped them to make choices. The staff (Rich’s employees) was extremely pleasant, helpful and professional! Our guests commented on the appetizers and the entrees, saying how much they enjoyed both. They loved the buffet style because of the choices given and many went back for seconds! I would definitely recommend Catering by Rich for any event.

  • As a bride putting the most important part of your wedding day in the hands of someone else is terrifying. I can say with 100% rich and his staff lived up to every expectation we had. From the tasting in his own home to the day of the wedding he was friendly, professional and so knowledgeable. He knew I was having a hard time Trying to visual the floor plan so he met us at the venue just to make sure I felt confident with the floor plan. I can not say enough great things about rich.

  • Although my sister had used Catering by Rich and raved about how great he was, my husband and I wanted to explore all of our options before automatically signing on with Rich and team. We quickly realized that Rich was not only the most reasonable in pricing compared to other vendors, but his experience and industry knowledge was far superior, too. Rich is flexible and understanding and was willing to work with us on every request. We were confident we were in good hands throughout the entire process and all of Rich's servers and managers were so friendly, courteous and professional. Our DJ even sent a note to say how great our caterer was. The food was super delicious and I heard so many compliments throughout the night! We recommend Rich to all of our friends and family.

  • Catering by Rich catered our wedding and we are so happy he did. Rich and his staff are the best. The food, amazing, the staff, so professional. Every guest that we talked too, commented on how great the food was. From the tasting to the wedding day, Rich was there, answering all our questions and putting us at ease. The day of the wedding ran flawlessly. Rich’s right hand man Scott was awesome too!

  • Rich's food was very tasty! We met Rich in his home for a private tasting to select our dishes, which was an enjoyable experience. Then between our tasting and the wedding, we hashed out our details. Communication was a bit slow for our preference, but the end result came together perfectly. Rich's staff was very kind and his maître d' was great! Rich was also very accommodating for special request dishes for some guests who were vegan.

  • Rich is an excellent caterer. For a very good price, he provided terrific food to all of our guests, and his serving staff was terrific as well. Rich is very busy, so there was an occasional wait for him to respond to our emails, but he was thorough, friendly, and very flexible in working with us. I would highly recommend hiring Rich to cater your wedding.

  • If anyone knows wedding catering it's Catering by Rich. Last year Rich's team did 50+ weddings and it shows in their flawless execution on wedding day. I asked a LOT of questions from our first meeting in his home for a tasting and over the course of the year leading up to our wedding...Rich never once made me feel like my questions, concerns or thoughts were not valid or valued. Rich was extremely flexible in letting us customize a selection of passed hors-d'oeuvres from various pricing tiers and allowed us to make a few modifications to the salad we had selected. Everyone at our wedding could not stop talking about the food from the sushi and bacon wrapped shrimp at cocktail hour to the pork and chicken we selected for dinner - funny enough the one thing everyone noted was how delicious his smashed red potatoes were. During cocktail hour I took a peek into the reception space to see Steve (Rich's front-of-house commander) and his army of catering staff moving tables around, delic... Read more

You can't beat the quality, service and value of Catering by Rich!
