  • Perfection! David and his company couldn't have been better! He was everything I wanted and more with an attitude that was nothing but patient and understanding. After talking with several other wedding caterers in the area I wasn't feeling too excited about my wedding budget. They all said my budget was unrealistic and that I should "look at the Everyday Catering menu". But then David replied to my email with enthusiasm and a great menu to start from that only improved with converstaions. He gave the perfect balance between my idea of a Wandering Wedding/Picnic style and my mom's more formal Buffet/Sit-down style. And he was more than willing to talk, email or meet anytime I asked. And it's not just his services and attitude, the food is still being talked about months after the wedding! The chipolte steak, pasta station, EVERYTHING was AMAZING! The extra plates left for us after the reception were gone in less than an hour. People had second and even third helpings. ... Read more

  • Where do I begin. From the very beginning David was the most responsive and professional out of all the caterers we talked to. I was impressed with everything from his menus on his website to his outlook on food and freshness of ingredients. We didn't even choose from his menus instead I wrote David an e-mail about the foods my fiance and I love and the vibe we were going for. Most importantly my maid of honor sister and I can't eat gluten, but David was 100% accomodating about that from the very beginning. I was planning this wedding from Nebraska and could only meet David in person on the few weekend days that I was in town visiting family but he always made himself available. On our wedding day there was nothing I needed to worry about. Everything went smoothly from the table linens looking perfect to the food coming out exactly at the right times even though we had RAIN! And the FOOOD! Oh my it was fantastic. Everyone wouldn't stop talking about the chip, guac, cheese, fruit... Read more

  • From the very first phone call, then meeting, then taste testing...all the way to the wedding, we always felt comfortable and that David had everything in control for our day. Not once did we ever feel pressured into something that would have been easier for him or for his convenience, it was always about making our day just the way we wanted it, and he did! Even when the unexpected arose once or twice, he handled himself, and his crew, professionally and got things done right. We truly could not have been happier with his workmanship, and of course the food was just what we wanted, GREAT! I would recommend him and his company to any bride/groom that wants what every wedding truly should be, personal and tasteful. Thank you again David, we were and are still so thankful.

  • David was BEYOND spectacular! My husband had worked a few weddings with him so when we got engaged, he knew exactly who he wanted to cater for us. I was sold the minute we got his proposed menu. We absolutely loved all of his ideas and he was really great about our tight budget and dietary concerns for some of our guests. We were able to do most of the planning via email and the tasting blew us out of the water. The presentation of the food is so impressive. It's not just placed out but more interactive (ex. a pasta bar with skillets to mix it all together in front of you) It's been 3 months since our wedding and our guests are STILL talking about how fabulous our food was and how impressed they were with the presentation (even while at other weddings)! My mother-in-law is planning her wedding now and there was no debating who would be catering hers!

  • AMAZING! PROFESSIONAL! DELICIOUS! I cannot say enough about David and his team. I am not a firm believer of the saying "Things happen for a reason," because I found myself looking for a new caterer 4 months before our wedding. David luckily had the date availble and he was so flexible and approachable in all of our meetings and the tasting. My husband works in the food industry and my brother is a chef so I had some tough critics to keep in mind when choosing a new caterer. David's style was PERFECT for what we were looking for...delicious, accessible, but still creative and inventive. I knew once we met him and talked with him that I no longer had to worry about anything. The presentation on the big day was awesome- clean, modern, and organized.They took care of everything! We had so many people tell us during the reception and afterwards how good the passed aps were (mini cubans, blue cheese and onion quesadillas, coconut crusted shrimp, and my favorite steak and cheese springro...

  • I met David Alan at the Bridal Expo at the Expo Center in Hartford this year. We discussed a few options for my VERY picky groom and I was sold. They did such a wonderful job customizing the menu for us and tweaking any little thing we needed. He even did our rehearsal dinner for us last minute, the night before he had a wedding of 130 people. Everything from passed appetizers to the bar was phenomenal every guest thoroughly enjoyed it (even my very picky groom). We will defiantly be using David Alan for any other event that needs catering.

  • David was beyond fantastic. I am a bit of a foodie and had decided that I would only settle for a menu that reflected who I was as a person as well as my particular tastes. David asked me to write him an email about what food meant to me and my fiancee and I must have written a page about thanksgiving, christmas, the types of food I was currently cooking, and what comfort foods my husband loved. David turned that email into a menu. Ever since the wedding, people keep remarking what a great day and a good time they had, and the FOOD! I wanted the food to be something to be enjoyed and remembered and IT WAS! I dont think I could offer a better compliment to David than the statements made by my friends and family - this was the BEST WEDDING FOOD they EVER had! Call him, hire him you will not be disappointed!

  • For our daughter's wedding, David and his staff (and his wife) were wonderful to work from the planning stages till the wedding day. They took care of all the details and saw to it that we were able to enjoy the day stress free. They were able to work very well in coordination with other vendors for our ethnically dual wedding ceremony and reception. They were personally present throughout the event to ensure a successful day. They worked in a timely manner during the course of the day. We highly recommend them and will definitely use them again for our future events. Shanthi & Keshav Rao

  • I can't say enough about the flexibility of David Alan Catering. My brother was bringing some home-brewed beer to be stored in David Alan's coolers the Friday before the wedding. When my brother hit traffic and was 3 hours late, we missed our connection with David. Luckily for me, David Alan was passing by the town we were in and offered to pick up the beer on his way to his next job. He saved the day for me and the beer stayed fresh for the reception on Saturday. Thank you, David!!

  • I'm so happy I ended up choosing David Alan Catering for my July 24th wedding. throughout the planning stages, he was always easy to reach with my many many questions, and he impressed everyone with his professionalism and organization. They say many brides don't get a chance to eat or enjoy themselves at their wedding, but I had no worries leaving everything in David's competent hands, and after trying out the goods at his tasting, there was no way I was missing dinner! His staff was friendly and efficient and countless guests told me how awesome the food was. Thankfully for my small budget, David's services were also completely affordable. Thanks David!

  • David and his staff exceeded my expectations. Our daughters wedding was perfect in every way. The food was prepared according to our instructions and the presentation was amazing! Several guests inquired about business cards from David because they were so impressed with the food, David's professionalism and his friendly staff. I continue to receive positive comments from friends about the incredible food and service from TLCafe. Everything from the hors d'oeuvres to the desserts were incredible! Thank you again David for making our daughters wedding the perfect fairly tale.

  • My wife and married in June. We found David Alen Catering and knew during our first encounter that this was the only event catering service to use. I cannot express how happy we were with all aspects of this firm. As the reception is such a large part of any wedding, it was nice to know that all our guests were extremely impressed with the food and wait staff service. The number one question from our guests was "who was the caterer!" Then they wanted to know where we were going on a honeymoon. The food was perfectly prepared, the presentation was professional, and the staff made all who attended feel comfortable. If you are planning any type of event, talk with David Alan and company. This is a primier catering service that should not to be overlooked.

  • We couldn't have asked for a better caterer working with David and his team for our recent wedding. Almost everything we agreed upon in the contract appeared exactly as we had asked on our wedding day, with the exception of a few minor things being switched or omitted without our knowledge. David was very responsive to emails and phone calls and was totally open to creating almost any menu item we asked for. He was genuine, down to earth and friendly. Guests seemed to really enjoy the food (most of it was gone by the end of the night) and appreciated the homemade aspect of it all (as in, nothing tasted like it came from a box or bag!). Service was on time and professional and waitstaff (with the exception of the one female waitress who snapped at a guest of mine, unfortunately) were excellent. The pros of working with David Alan catering definitely outweighed the minor, MINOR issues we had, but that's the case working with any caterer. We were extremely frustrated with our catere...

  • David offers inventive and personalized menus to his customers. For my anniversary celebration, we worked on an awesome party menu that included 9 great passed appetizers (pizza, sliders, lettuce wraps, etc), a Mexican buffet station, and a fun dessert station with milkshakes! The party was a complete success with enough staff to serve everyone and make sure the event ran smoothly!
