  • Not only was the food delicious, but Keira and Jamie were so wonderfully flexible and helpful in making the day go smoothly. We had to switch to the rain plan last minute and the E&S team did a fantastic job being flexible and making the space work. We had brunch food and everyone raved about how good it was! I loved that it was all local and seasonal too.

  • Eat and Smile are simply amazing! They took the time to listen to us to find out our likes and dislikes and even held a private tasting for us both at a time convenient for us. They answered my many questions leading up to the event and were always there. During the event the staff was attentive and worked seamlessly with my other vendors. I recommend Eat and Smile! They are local, easy to work with and do the job so you don't have to think about it! Thank you Eat and Smile!

  • Both my husband and I have only great things to say about Eat & Smile, which we hired for our October 2016 wedding. We chose them because of their sustainable sourcing policies, environmentally-friendly dinnerware and clean-up model, as well as the quality and creativity of their food. Later, we were happily surprised by the professionalism, responsiveness, and experience of Katie, our main contact and guide leading up to the wedding. The rest of the Eat&Smile team, which we only met the day of the wedding, was easy going, attentive and kept everything moving like a well-oiled machine. Our guests were happy with the food, as were we! The serving format we chose (passed hors d'oeuvres, passed small plates, and small bite desserts), while somewhat new and unexpected for our guests, worked perfectly to help create the friendly and light-hearted ambience we sought to create. We would recommend Eat & Smile Catering without hesitation.

  • I can't say enough good things about Eat & Smile. They were the first vendor we found for our wedding, and the only caterer we visited. (The food during our visit was that good!) Katie was so friendly and helpful and gave us tons of advice about our wedding planning. Eat & Smile partners with many other vendors and gave us plenty of references that helped make our planning easy. She was responsive and patient throughout the process, going above and beyond with advice and suggestions. They were extremely helpful with planning and executing setup for all vendors at the venue. And, of course, the food at the wedding was fantastic. More than highly recommended!

  • Eat and Smile were just fantastic. They design a perfectly in season menu that fits your wedding - no set menus here. They catered our wedding on a farm where they only had a tent for prep and we asked them to do passed dishes all night, rather than a sit-down dinner. Despite these challenges, they created an unforgettable feast, always flexible and creative. I couldn't recommend them more. Just so you know, they're on the pricier side, since everything's local and organic, but they were worth every penny.

  • We had an excellent experience with Eat & Smile from start to finish for our 100-guest wedding. They first caught our attention due to their commitment to local sourcing, eco-conscious practices, and small size. Their tasting is different from others in the industry. They have you come in to taste several courses, but not your actual menu. Since the food we tasted was great, Katie was very responsive, and the price was on par with others in the industry, we decided to go with them. We opted for the passed small plates service option and were very happy with our choice. No seating charts, and lots of flexibility for the vegans and GF guests in our party. Katie was very helpful in giving us advice about how to set up the event because Eat & Smile had catered events at our venue before (Rockwood Manor). E&S provides bartenders and ice, but you provide the beer, wine, and liquor. This is a nice bonus for those of us who enjoy alcohol shopping and want to save money, though it requires y... Read more

  • My wife and I had an excellent experience with Eat & Smile, to whom we were referred by our coordinator, Candy+Co. We loved their vision for passed small plates, and highly recommend this format for couples who want to do something a little different. It was great being able to mingle during the reception. The food quality and presentation was top-notch, and we received so many compliments. Service was professional and unobtrusive. We also liked their use of biodegradable plates and silverware and focus on farm-to-table and procuring local ingredients. I feel the price was extremely fair for the level of service provided. Highly recommended

  • If you want a unique, fully-tailored catering experience for your wedding (and why wouldn't you?), contact Eat & Smile immediately! Every experience we had with them was absolutely fantastic. From the initial meeting with Katie for our pre-contract tasting, where we were able to savor a number of samples that Chef Friendly and his wonderful team created, through the sub-vendor contracting, through the day of and after our wedding, everything was flawless. My husband and I wanted the food to be the main focus of our wedding day, and Eat & Smile's "we cater to your tastes and aren't limited to pick-and-choose from a limited number of items" attitude was perfect for us. We chose to do a laid-back, cocktail and small plates-style dinner, which E&S excels at. Every dish wowed our guests (as did our signature cocktail, Gnome's Water, a refreshing cucumber drink that perfectly matched the vibe), and looked absolutely beautiful. E&S prides itself on working with local farmers as much as possib... Read more

  • Eat & Smile were absolutely terrific. They checked all the boxes: great food, reasonable pricing, and execution. They made everything very easy for us as they took care of most of the wedding logistics during the reception. When there were some (minor) issues during the dinner, they moved fast to quickly resolve them. I highly recommend E&S.

  • I would highly recommend Eat & Smile as your DC-area wedding caterers. We had Eat & Smile cater our 100-person wedding at St. Francis Hall, which included passed hors'doeuvres and a plated dinner. Katie, Chef Oliver, and the rest of the Eat & Smile team were fantastic to work with. Chef Oliver worked with us to create a menu that was perfectly set to our preferences and budget, and the food itself was well-prepared and delicious. Katie was our main point of contact starting with the tasting all the way to the wedding day. She is awesomely communicative and fun to work with. Katie provided valuable input not only on the food, servers, and linens which we contracted for through E&S; but also on things like beverage service (we used Ace Beverage for alcohol), table placement, timeline, and guest flow. On the day of the wedding our guests also pointed out how personable and professional the entire E&S serving and bartender staff were during the event. They also took care of... Read more

  • I first discovered Eat & Smile since they are a recommended vendor for my venue, and I can see why. Their food, quality of service, and responsiveness, made it so easy to choose them as our wedding caterer! Throughout the process, Katie was SO helpful, answering all of our questions, even about other wedding-related items beyond catering. Our tasting was so good, trying the different small plates that they are so good at producing. I appreciated that I had a request for a customized type of hors d'oeuvres to represent my grandpa, and they were able to do that with no problem. We went with two stations (tacos and crepes) plus two small passed plated at our wedding and it worked really well. Guests really liked the stations, especially the crepe one since it turned into sweet crepes for dessert time. We also got two of their drink mixers for guests to pair with alcohol or to enjoy with sparkling water. Guests really liked our two seasonal flavor options, which fit well with our spring we...

  • Eat & Smile was fabulous! From the tasting, to working with Katie, to having Jamie as our day-of lead, everything was excellent. We choose Eat & Smile because the food was great and Katie always got back to our emails extremely quickly. Throughout the whole planning process, I could always count on her to respond to our questions and concerns very quickly, and this really reduced the stress. They were also excellent day-of. The staff was friendly and did a great job working with our friends who were our day-of coordinators. They also worked well with the extras that we brought in (home-made cookie table, challah, etc.) They also set out the centerpieces and decorations that we made and everything was beautiful. I give Katie and the team my highest recommendation.
