  • I couldn't be any happier with how our wedding went. SOmehow, Annette was able to know what I wanted when I couldn't even explain it myself! Trust her because she will take you from start to finish and you will be so happy! All of my guests raved about the food. Staff are so kind and professional and didn't miss a beat!

  • Annette and her staff went above and beyond to give us the wedding we have always dreamt of. From the food being 10/10, to all of their help planning a backyard barn wedding and making the process that much easier on us. All of my guests are still talking about how delicious the food was months later. My husband and I will always recommend Distinctive Catering.

  • Annette and her team were amazing! With COVID happening everything about my wedding changed last minute and Annette went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we wanted. From the first meeting and deciding on our menu based on our budget to making sure my hisband and I had food ready to eat at our arrival was fantastic. I would recommend 100 times over. Its 2 months later and guests @ the wedding are still raving about the food and service!

  • The minute I met Annette I knew she was the person I wanted involved in my 30th birthday. Annette is bursting with energy from the time we planned to the end of the party. My biggest fear was running out of food and that was never a concern for Distinctive Catering. The food was amazing and the staff was attentive to ever guest as if they were family. I cant wait to call Distinctive Catering for my next event.

  • Distinctive Catering was an A+ Choice for handling of my daughter’s High school graduation party needs. From the beginning stages of booking the catering services to seeing our last guest leave the party, Annette and her catering team made every effort to be sure our needs and accommodations were fully satisfied. The ease of booking and the ability to select foods that were not only appealing to the young adults but remained upscale for my adult guests took away the stress that normally comes along with hosting a party event. The quantity and quality of food, desserts and beverages was something my guests raved about long after the event was over. Distinctive Catering staff were very friendly, organized and accommodating. Food was served during the scheduled time and prepared as requested. Staff was professional and friendly. Tables were cleared as guests finished their meals leaving me with the ability to not only soak in this memorable milestone event for my daughter, but allowe... Read more

  • Distinctive Catering... BEST wedding caterer ever! No words can describe our gratitude for the PERFECT job they did for my daughters wedding at the Canfield Casino in Saratoga Springs. ~Annette Osher is the owner of Distinctive Catering. When I first met Annette, I quickly realized that using her was going to be the best decision made for my daughters wedding. From our first meeting to the very end of the wedding, every detail was cared for well beyond our expectations. Her whole focus is to make the dream of having a fairytale wedding become a reality. It was nothing short of that. She will always hold a very special place in our hearts. ~Her Staff. I have been to many many weddings. I have never seen staff work so hard, and always with a smile the way this staff did. I was not the only one who noticed this, as so many of the guests commented about them as well. They are all professionals and easily cared for the 220 guests. They are truly the dream team. ~The Food... not... Read more

  • This caterer is wonderful! I am an event coordinator who has had the pleasure or working with them. They are extremely responsive, will work with their clients needs and budgets, and while on site they are professional and have a “can-do” attitude. The food is delicious and presented nicely. I definitely recommend Distinctive Catering!

  • We were extremely disappointed and frustrated with the service we ended up receiving from Distinctive Catering. When We booked with Annette last fall our contract was for 135 people for 5 hours of open bar with beer, wine and cider and at that time she told me to let her know what we wanted for an assortment and she would let me know if she could get them. She never said I would only have the cheapest of options or that she wouldn’t be able to supply enough cider with that budget. She gave me the prices for what I was looking for. In August when we cut our guest list to 58 people we had already paid 75% of our bill so we ended up paying almost double what we had agreed upon per person. To make up the difference Annette agreed to do higher end beers and ciders and to let her know what we wanted by the 3rd week of September. In the third week of September we emailed her with our list and then only heard back that she would try. About a week and a half later We emailed her to find out ... Read more

    The contract stated assorted beer , wine , soda , water and some cider for the bride and groom. They had a budget that was agreed upon , $5.00 per person per hour. Bartender included and an 8% discount off the total bill. This was an inexpensive price for a bar service . They were given an option of rescheduling it but at the last minute told me only half the people would show . They were unsure if the wedding would happen and upset about the guest list with covid limiting them. My team showed with white claw, Sam Octobetfest , corona light, coors lt , mic ultra , bud, bud light , Labatt’ and champagne , assorted wine plus cases of angry orchard cider . I was never informed the whole guest list would want angry orchard cider which is a high end cider. They had a small budget . The drive was 2 hours in the mountains . I can understand the bride was upset bc her big wedding had been shattered by covid but I am not to blame. There was no phone service, there were no stores close by and we did not run out of angry orchard for the bride and groom . They drank it to the end, we did not run out of any alcohol but the guests had a variety of choices. She was not clear upon signing the contract that her guests only wanted high end cider . This would have been impossible at $5.00 per person per drink per hour since her guests were “Big Drinkers” she told me when we arrived. Although her guest list was cut short by the venue because of covid , I did increase the quality from typical domestic beers and had a great selection . She had a food truck with hamburgers, quesadillas, fries etc served in ( take out boxes) to eat out of for her reception. I’m not sure how you expected the bar service to accommodate high end bar service when you did not pay for it. We never ran out of anything. I do not agree with this review ! We have been successful for 30 years of catering food and bar service without an issue. I am sorry her wedding guest did not or could not show up and she’s angry bc of covid . We did our job based on the contract signed and approved by her . We took pictures of alcohol before and after since the mother of the bride informed me she would be writing this review . Congratulations and good luck !

  • My wedding was cancelled due to COVID at our original venue 2 months before our wedding date. My husband and I decided to move the event to the backyard and we scrambled to replan everything with very little time. The planning process was very hectic and at times I was not sure everything was going to work out. However, our wedding night was perfect. The food provided by Annette and her team was delicious, our wedding planner Eva was on top of every little detail, the staff was extremely friendly and attentive and the whole day and night went absolutely perfect. Thank you!
