  • Mary and her family and staff were great to work with for our wedding. We were affected by the pandemic in 2020, after two years of planning, and they were very accommodating and understanding what we and all couples were going through. The food was amazing, the presentation was perfect, and all our guests were very happy! I would defiantly recommend Cuisine America as it is very clear they care about their food and they care about their clients/couple. Thank you!

  • We were so incredibly happy with our choice to book Cuisine America to cater our wedding. From the start, Mary Catherine was so kind, professional, and helpful, and was prompt answering any questions we had. The food was absolutely delicious - we had such a hard time choosing which foods we wanted after the tasting because everything we tried was amazing! We opted for a buffet style dinner and our guests raved about how much they enjoyed the food. Cuisine America also has a huge supply of wedding decor available for couples to borrow and we used many of these decorations for our wedding day. Mary Catherine took the time to pick out decorations with us and plan exactly where to set things up, and they took care of all the rest. Every single person on that team made us feel so well taken-care-of and helped make our wedding day perfect. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Cuisine America to anyone looking for an above-and-beyond caterer for their wedding!

  • Mary Catherine and her team are absolutely incredible! They are extremely knowledgeable, accommodating, and easy to work with. We had a lot of people involved in the decision-making of our catering and Mary Catherine was so patient and helpful during the entire process. They also made postponing 3 times and editing our numbers down from 300+ to 50 such an easy shift. We had Cuisine America cater both our rehearsal and wedding and received many compliments on how amazing the food was! 100% recommend working with this incredible team.

  • Everyone needs to use Cuisine America for their wedding or event. MC was great to work with and they put my mind at ease for our whole wedding. We had the taco bar at our wedding and it was incredible. When we asked our friends and family how the wedding went, they always mentioned how good the food was. The BEST part of using Cuisine America is all of the decorations that you could use, like table numbers, card boxes, candle votives, and signs. First, it saved me a lot of money not having to buy a million little things I will only use once. They have a TON of options. But most importantly it saved me so much stress. I didn’t have to worry about getting all of the decorations to the venue or running around/ ordering the little things. They came and set the decorations up and broke it all down at the end of the night. They were a HUGE part of me feeling stress free on my wedding day. I had so many friends say that they wished they had gone with or known about this company for ... Read more

  • Cuisine America was recommended to us through 2 different venue locations that we were looking at at the start of our wedding planning. We mentioned in the beginning that we wanted a taco bar at our reception, and Cuisine America was immediately the number one suggestion, we chose them right away. Mary Catherine was extremely helpful in helping us getting our vision across. It helped that she had worked with so many venues multiple times, too. You can tell they had so much experience with weddings that there was always something to recommend to help make our special day better for us. When discussing the dinner menu, Mary Catherine also provided a meal for 2 to taste-test everything before settling on the final dinner items and hors d'oeuvres. Not only does Cuisine America provide the food, but they also provide the silverware and napkin settings. There are so many options for these as well that you're sure to meet your dinner vision! What we really loved and appreciated was that we... Read more

  • Mary Catherine and her team are wonderful! The food was delicious. Our guests had nothing but good things to say about the food! Mary Catherine also lets her clients borrow decorations for the night! She has everything you could possibly need - because of this, my decoration costs were minimal. Between amazing food and beautiful decorations, I don't know what else you could need! She responds quickly and allowed us to taste food until we picked the perfect menu for the night. They were also incredibly flexible with adjusting our needs to help our wedding meet covid requirements! You will not regret using CuisineAmerica!

  • Mary and her crew were wonderful to work with! They did our wedding August 2020 amongst the crazy pandemic and it was all flawless. You can understand why the are awarded the top catering for events in the area. They are on it and have endless options. Easy to contact, flexible with the forever changing pandemic rules, knowledgeable, very reasonably priced, you can borrow decor FOR FREE, and great people who you surely will feel comfortable working with and will help pull off an amazing wedding. Mary is very organized and can answer and question you have. She has great suggestions on food, decor, timeline, what works, what doesnt, and beyond!

  • We got SO many compliments on our wedding food. Not only was it HOT but taste was phenomenal. We had a roast chicken dish with vegetables and potatoes that was better than my grandmas (don’t tell her I said that!). The bbq pulled pork was better than if it came from a bbq joint, and the salads, homemade bread, homemade croutons, homemade dressings, everything was phenomenal. Multiple people said best wedding food they’ve ever had. Not only is the food great but Mary Catherine is so professional and on top of it. The venue, photographer, and DJ all asked me who our caterer was, and every time I said Cuisine America they all nodded and said “Mary Catherine runs a tight ship,” which is so comforting! We got mini desserts as well instead of a cake, and those got a boatload of compliments too! Best chocolate mousse I’ve ever had, the cheesecake was spot on, and my cousin said the lemon bars were so good she shoved 7 in her purse. Last of all, the warehouse of decoration... Read more

  • Cuisine America was so wonderful to work with for our wedding. One of my top wishes for my wedding (along with my husband’s) was good food, and they did not disappoint! Mary Catherine was essential in helping us figure out the schedule for our wedding day and finalizing menu decisions as well as other decisions. She is so knowledgable and helpful, I don’t think our wedding day would have been as smooth as it was without her - it was as if she was our unofficial wedding planner since we did not hire one. I am forever grateful for all the questions she asked and the insight she gave us as we sorted out the details of the night. The food was so delicious and perfect for our crowd (we did buffet style for the dinner, with family style salads and bread). From the time we had our first tasting, I couldn’t wait for the wedding day so I could eat their food again! Another amazing thing about Cuisine America is that they have a large stock of wedding decor which they’ve collected over... Read more

  • Highly recommend this catering company/staff for all your wedding needs! They truly were amazing and so so helpful throughout the entire wedding planning process and day! I had ALOT of candles (approx. 175) and they lit every single one for me! They also have a large selection of decor items you can rent free of charge when booking with them which is SO helpful for brides when they are spending so much money already! Their food was amazing!! We did a buffet and had two stations which helped make things run very smoothly and people got their food very quickly. HIGHLY recommend them!!

  • We used Cuisine America for our wedding day and could not have been more pleased! Not only was the food delicious and served quickly, but Mary met with me multiple times to plan everything and offered helpful suggestions to make our wedding run smoothly! Her team was efficient and professional- my mom asked them to do one or two things before realizing they were already done! And, as an added bonus, she lends out her decor to brides so I didn't have to spend money on table numbers or giant picture frames I would never use again. Could not recommend more highly! We got married at the Brix on the Fox and they already knew everything about the venue which was also a great help!

  • Cuisine American was so much more than just our wedding caterers! Mary Catherine was so helpful during the whole planning process. I liked that she was able to use her years of experience to provide helpful advice on what would work best for our venue, set-up and guests...from table layout, seating chart, dessert table, etc. She also has TONS of wedding decor that she's collected through the years that she allows her clients to use at no additional cost and will even bring it to the venue, set it up for you and take everything away at the end of the night! I can't explain how much time and money this saved us! We received multiple compliments on the food, especially the tacos and guac! We would recommend Cuisine America to anyone in search of a caterer/wedding organizer because they truly do more than just provide food for your guests! Thank you again for a great experience!

  • Cuisine America is a godsend! We were so lucky to have Mary and her team be part of our most special day. We had a buffet style wedding, and we were so glad we did. From our first tasting to the wedding reception, Mary and her team were professional, experienced, and well-organized. They were so accepting of us as an LGBT couple. Their hard work translated to an event and a food menu and service that we will never forget. Food was a BIG priority for our wedding, and Cuisine America BROUGHT IT ALL! Mary is flexible and helpful with our requests. She was so accommodating to even create a ethnic dish for our menu. The food was delicious, memorable, and satisfying. Their steak is the best wedding steak we’ve ever had! Her crew is professional and organized. All of the guests were so happy. Compliments kept coming even after the wedding. In addition to food, Mary has accumulated an amazing inventory of wedding decorations that will be available to your venue. Mary helps you make your v... Read more

  • The catering did a great job making sure we had everything we wanted. They also supplied all the decorations for the venue for no additional cost! I didn’t have to worry or think about the catering on my wedding day and everything was taken care of for an affordable price.
