  • The staff at empire eats was amazing and very helpful. They helped establish a great package of food for our guests and worked with us to find the price that fit our budget. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to have their wedding catered.

  • We were so excited to choose Empire Eats as our caterer as we got to choose a menu from one of our favorite restaurants, the Pit. The food was amazing and the service was wonderful!

  • These folks went above and beyond and were the epitome of professionalism and class. The food was wonderful and all of the details having to do with the food (and drink) were taken care of and we did not have one worry about it at all! We would not change one thing!

  • Thank you so much Empire Eats for the amazing food and service!! One of our friends literally came up to us during the reception and said "Where is the chef?!? I need to go find them and shake their hand!!!" We chose the Pit BBQ for food everyone was absolutely thrilled. Not to mention, they did an awesome job serving people at the bar (there was never a crazy long line and we definitely had some drinkers at our wedding!). People always say you forget to eat during your wedding day, but we definitely didn't because Empire Eats served us our plates directly and the food was too dang good to not devour. We cannot thank you enough!

  • Empire Eats was an amazing choice for our buffet dinner at our wedding. We had so many great options to choose from for food - Sitti, Gravy, The Pit, The Raleigh Times, etc. We went with offerings from The Pit. Everyone was raving about the pulled pork and macaroni and cheese! Kimberly was the BEST to work with. She was quick to answer questions and is so sweet and friendly. They offered multiple tastings we were able to go to before our wedding to help ease our decision on food. My only regret is not having time or room left to go back for a second plate!

  • Krystal was the best! We were a slightly difficult, out of state couple and did not hire a coordinator. We used Empire Eats for catering for our wedding (The Pit BBQ was delicious!) and CE rentals for linens & tableware. Before and during the event, Krystal and the Empire Eats staff were a huge help making sure our event ran smoothly! My only complaint is the waitstaff took mine and my husband's food away before we were done eating - the photographer stole us away for a couple of pictures and we returned to an empty table. I didn't get to eat quite as much of the AMAZING food as I wanted to :( just a minor miscommunication. I am so pleased with our experience using Empire Eats for our wedding!

  • We held our rehearsal dinner at Gravy Restaurant, and we are so happy we did! The staff at Gravy was super responsive and helpful in the lead-up to our wedding. They paid careful attention to details and made sure we were able to accommodate our guests with allergies and other food restrictions. The Wine Cellar was such a lovely space and we loved that the food was served family-style. It created a warm, intimate feeling that really set the tone for our wedding weekend. Plus, the food was *delicious* and the overall cost was very reasonable!

  • My daughter had a very small wedding, but we were treated as if we were their most import client. They were easy to work with before the wedding and the day of the wedding everyone was wonderful! The staff was so helpful! Several family members commented on it afterward. I couldn't have asked for more! Not to mention the food was AMAZING as I knew it would be!!!

  • We used Empire Eats Catering for our wedding on 9.9.17 and they were fantastic! The food was great, but most importantly the staff was friendly, incredibly well organized, and supportive. Kimberly especially answered all of my many questions throughout the planning process and was extremely helpful. I would recommend them to anyone!

  • We used Empire eats Catering for both our rehearsal dinner and wedding reception. The food at Sitti for the rehearsal was delicious family style Lebanese that our guests all loved. Amy and Devan were easy to work with and very responsive to any questions or request. The wedding ceremony was also amazing with a combination of food from Italian to Southern. The linens and place settings were beautiful ,and the service was excellent. Thanks to Kimberly at Empire Eats for helping to provide a wonderful dinner.

  • This was one of the best vendors out of the whole wedding experience. Kimberly was amazing to work with and extremely responsive! She was flexible and helped work with my budget to get everything I wanted. The food was incredible. The best part is they contract out the rentals for silverware and linens so that you only have their contract to work with. Kimberly came with me to pick everything out and help design the whole look of the reception. The contract was easy to review, sign, and pay online. Everything about Empire Eats was seamless. The guests absolutely loved the food!

  • We ultimately had a very good experience with Empire, but some of the communication was a little rocky. We had a bit of trouble communicating with the right people at first - it seemed that someone may have left the company while working with us or something like that, and there was a pretty big change in the menu they were offering that we weren't made aware of when we started working with the new person. Our options ended up being a bit more limited than we had expected because of this. However, we did have a an amazing tasting at Gravy early on in the process, and things were smooth once we got the menu nailed down. Empire was also very helpful in allowing us to store our alcohol with them to be chilled a few days before the wedding. The food at the cocktail hour and reception was really delicious (shrimp skewers, meatballs, deviled eggs, artichoke chicken from Sitti) and the service was great. I wish I lived in town so I could eat at the affiliated restaurants more often!
