  • What can I say but working with David Alan Hospitality Group was an extremely pleasant experience!! Carley and her staff were so attentive and made the whole process run smoothly from day one until the end of the wedding! We used them for my daughter’s wedding and couldn’t have been happier with every single detail. The most impressive part was that on the day of the wedding is I knew everything was going to be handled professionally and perfectly and that I didn’t have to worry about a thing!! I really enjoyed the day and could relax knowing that Carley and her team were taking care of all the details. The bartender, Robin was great! They had a bridal attendant to help things run smoothly with introductions and other details. They all seemed to genuinely love their jobs and it showed. Such wonderful people and the food was amazing!! They even had special meals for vegan guests. I can’t say enough good things about our experience and would highly recommended the DAHG for your...

  • David Alan was our second pick for a caterer (our friend is a chef at a restaurant that also provides catering) and we did love their tasting. But when we found out that they could also help us with day-of coordination even if they were not our caterer, we knew we needed their expertise! We worked with Carly in advance of the wedding for renting ceremony chairs, extra tables and tablecloths, and all of our glasses and plates (the restaurant would have had to rent them as well and would have passed an additional charge on to us). We also had Nate for our rehearsal , and both of them were there to make the day of absolutely perfect! It was so nice to just enjoy the moment and know that if something needed to happen we could count on them. We could not have done it without them; all of the details were handled and it all went so smoothly. We would absolutely use David Alan for catering as well as planning other events in the future.

    Thank you so much! We are so grateful to have been able to help. Nate and Carly loved riding the chair lift:) We wish you much love and happiness!!!

  • From our first meeting, we knew we had to hire David Alan for our wedding at the Branford House. We had done food tastings at a few other caterers and were unimpressed. David Alan blew us away at our tasting and we knew immediately we had found the one. Meghan was fantastic from start to finish. She answered the million questions I had and worked with me through my indecisiveness. We had Robin on the day of the wedding. Robin and the rest of the staff were amazing. Our bridal attendant was right there for anything we needed. The food is fantastic!! We received so many compliments, especially on the sea bass (my personal favorite - I’m still drooling over it) and the prime rib. We had a few chefs at our wedding, so to have them praise the food really tells you how amazing David Alan is. They know the venue well, and worked great with our coordinator and other vendors. I did not worry about a single thing that day! I highly recommend David Alan - you will not be disappointed.

    Thank you so much! We were thrilled to be able to help you both and wish you much love and success!!!

  • My daughter & son-in-law used David Alan at their recent wedding at the Branford House in Groton,Ct. Everyone was very impressed with the variety, presentation & quality of the food. In addition, the professionalism & friendliness of the entire staff was superior. We were completely satisfied & would recommend them without hesitation.

  • DAHG was a dream come true! The service, the food, the atmosphere was impeccable. I am so thankful that we hired them for our wedding vendor. They were easy to work with, listened to all of our questions and ideas, we're flexible and truly brought our vision to fruition. We got so many compliments on how nice the tables looked, the attention to detail the entire night, and most importantly, how tasty the food was! As the bride, our bridal attendant was beyond compare. My husband and I joked at how we were going to take him home. I felt so loved and comforted this entire process. I would highly recommend these caterers to anyone. Thank you so so so so much team!!

  • Working with Meghan and team was amazing. She was extremely responsive to my emails, answered my many questions, worked within our budget and was able to make our vision for the day come to life! Her team went above and beyond in so many ways, from our bridal attendant Nate who anticipated our every need (and more!) on the day to Robin, our D.O.C who took on tasks above and beyond. We said several times throughout the process "how would we have done this without David Alan?" They were the perfect vendor for our perfect day.

  • David Allen Catering could have not been any better. We wanted a Sunday vegetarian brunch wedding and they more than delivered. They had a menu fully customizable to what we wanted. We even found cute looking food on Pinterest and there was nothing they said could not do. Also, the tasting was amazing. So professional. Gave us the feel our guests would feel the day of. The whole process with DAC was nothing less than perfect. We also chose to do Day-of-Coordination through DAC and we honestly think that was the best thing we ever did for our wedding! Robin was our guru she knew everything and really guided us through complicated wedding planning.She also coordinated a great rehearsal. Our whole wedding party and family was so impressed with her professionalism and knowledge. Plus, she is super fun and nice! She ran the show the day of the wedding. She made sure everything was set up perfectly and the day ran smoothly. Also, shoutout to the best bridal attendant Taylor! She was with us ... Read more

  • David Alan was amazing! They completely exceeded my expectations on the day of our wedding! I had a few displays that I wanted set up a certain way (that I was very worried about) that they completely took care of, the food was amazing (all our guests were raving about it!), and everything went smoothly with their help! They were very accommodating- they allowed us to bring some local beer and other beverages we wanted served and served them for us! Carley, who took are of us leading up to and on the day of, was very responsive and made us feel at ease! Rebecca, my bridal attendant on the day of, was so helpful in making sure that we got food and drinks on our busy day. She was also the one who worked on set-up for my displays that came out exactly how I wanted (thank you!). David Alan employs very attentive and helpful staff that work very hard to make your day go as planned! Thank you all!

  • There are no words to describe how wonderful it was working with the David Alan team leading up to the wedding. Meghan was extremely easy to communicate with and always responsive, offering recommendations, and options for us to choose from (even when we were a year out!). The whole team (Robin, Katrina) are so friendly and helpful, they made the day-of an absolute breeze, I did not worry about a thing and it all turned out exactly as we discussed (and better than we could have hoped for). The food was amazing, we got so many compliments. Their package deals are great value for the amazing quality you receive (cocktail hour options, dinner menu, desserts & cake, retals, etc.) Doing everything through them was the best decision we made. There is no way the day would have run as smoothly without them there! We cannot recommend them highly enough!

  • Meghan & DAC team absolutely blew us away for our wedding this past July. I communicated with Meghan regularly leading up to our wedding and she was an absolute *dream* to work with. She responds almost instantly to EVERY email (and boy did I email her a lot!) she handles things very quickly. When we met for our first touch base/ planning details, I left our meeting feeling so confident that we were in the best hands, and that is the absolute truth. Working with DAC was seamless, reassuring, and it was enjoyable. Meghan answered all my questions before I even got to ask them and she even wrapped up final details with some of my other wedding vendors the week prior so I didn’t even have to worry about it. Robin was also a pleasure to work with the day of! She kept the show running and running well! We are forever grateful to have worked with such an incredible caterer and even better people. We would recommend them over and over and over again. Thank you for making what can be very st... Read more

  • We had our wedding at Wadsworth Mansion, Middletown, CT. We toured the mansion when there was a wedding expo and the a couple who married there before said they did a lot of research and David Alan offered the best wedding food they had. And they were not lying! Not only the food was so great that a lot of guests talked about it with us after, Meghan and the lady onsite for us that day were very pleasant to work with. They helped us with our table plan, answered general questions about wedding and communicate with the venue so we don't have to go back and forth. On the big day, the staffs helped us with the table centerpieces we brought ourselves and they did it perfectly. The guests were happy with the food and were taken good care of during the dinner. We are so happy we found them and trust on their professionalism.

  • David Alan's food selection and professional staff made our wedding a dream come true. Every single person at the wedding complimented the food. The customized packages make it possible for you to make the wedding menu of your dreams. The open bar had great selection as well. Highly recommend the day of catering package as well.

  • Where do I even begin with how great this company is. From the initial tasting to all the communication working with David Alan was easy and flexible. Meghan helped me stick to my budget/work with the menu I wanted when other caterers were not at all flexible. Katie the day of bridal attendant was a gift from god. She made sure everything was running smoothly and handled everything with ease and grace. She kept making sure I was alright throughout the event and if there was anything I needed. She also came by herself to help set up the day before the wedding. I was anticipating doing all that myself and when I saw all the work she had done by herself I was completely blown away. She made the day go off without a hitch. These guys go above and beyond what any other caterer would do. Oh and our specialty cocktails were the best!!! Thanks so much!!!

  • As I read these reviews I am heartbroken that we didn’t have the same experience for our daughter's wedding. Their food and service was unacceptable. They advertise "superior service" and "attention to detail". We found a Facebook post on our Event Supervisor’s page 3 days before our event "looking for waitstaff for a wedding this weekend- must have reliable transportation". Really??? The servers were so inexperienced it took over 2 hours to serve 100 dinners, and the meals were cold. No water refills all night. Several guests commented that the staff "don't know what they're doing". Perhaps the chefs were new recruits too. The meals weren’t even close to what we had at the tasting. Our salmon and chicken dishes were dry, "crispy" eggplant was mushy, "apple chestnut risotto" was undercooked white rice. We were horrified and embarrassed to see our guests leaving their dinners barely touched. Megan didn't stop by during the wedding at all, as she said she would. Once they had ou... Read more

    Hi Colleen- We are certainly dissatisfied with your review and never want to have someone unhappy. We are not in the business of making our customers unhappy and for that we apologize. We do not like to refute/dispute reviews only provide some context and transparency. It is our highest priority to help our clients no matter what. We strive to go above and beyond and from the many happy and loving couples we have worked with feel honored to do so. With that being said I will address your issues noted- The Event Supervisors post on Facebook is accurate. We are always looking for help as we are consistently growing and look to hire on an ongoing basis. The complete dinner service took approx 1.5 hours from time guests first sat down to toasts, eating, and ultimately finishing. This event took place at The Hillstead Museum in Farmington, of which we are very knowledgeable. We setup our kitchen outside as we normally do and plated out from the conference room across from the gift shop. Our chefs utilize chaffing dishes to serve food from in order to maintain its temperature as it is important to serve hot food. We are unhappy to hear that some guests did not enjoy their meals. We observed many of the dishes coming back empty which is usually a great sign! We cannot express enough our gratitude for being given the opportunity to help with this event and sincerely apologize for the things discussed in this review. We pride ourselves on being highly organized, responsive and truthful but do realize we cannot please everyone all the time although we try to!!

  • I had chosen David Alan Catering because they were highly recommended by Wadsworth Mansion where I got married on 7.20.2019. I was confident in my selection. However, there were some pros and cons I experienced while working with them. The positives were that my guests enjoyed the food and were served plentiful amounts. They did a great job serving my taco station and passing out the hors d'oeuvres. In addition, they had a very quick responsive time to emails. The bridal attendant Rebecca who was assigned to my husband and I was great and extremely attentive. However some of the cons were that it was frustrating seeing on my wedding day that they had put out the wrong linen colors outside and had the incorrect napkin color selected. I believe this is due to not having a proper labeling system because they have the same colors with multiple shade variations and finishes . They also were suppose to provide me with 75 gold votives for the dining room which they did not do. Also a little b... Read more
