  • Linda made us a dream wedding cake. It was the most delicious out of every other bakery we tried - her chocolate and buttercream are perfection, and her pumpkin and cream cheese frosting is some of the best cake we've ever had. The cake was perfect and absolutely gorgeous, and we are still getting compliments from our guests on how good it was. If you're getting married in the Catskills, just pick Grounded (and definitely go for her truly amazing tasting!!).

  • Linda made us a beautiful and delicious wedding cake! Our guests all commented on how tasty it was. We had a lot of fun with the tasting process, and chose vanilla cake with salted caramel filling - scrumptious! Linda was totally professional , and after we decided on our flavors, everything was in her hands. We definitely recommend her!

  • Linda was a true pleasure to work with! Her expertise and amazing taste are evident every step of the way. We were so impressed by the variety of items on her menu, and her elegant presentation. Prior to the wedding, she invited us for a final meeting at the Grounded office and we worked through the final details which made us relaxed and confident for the event. Our guests were delighted by the food and the professional service. Thank you to Linda and her team!

  • Grounded and Linda specifically were absolutely wonderful to work with. The food was absolutely amazing and guests are still talking about it two years later! It was lovely working with Linda leading up to the big day and I felt confident that she would make all the right decisions and deal with any issues that would arise day of so I didn't have to! Would highly recommend to anyone searching for a caterer and day of coordinator. Excellent service!!

  • We met Linda at Grounded in August 2015. We instantly fell in love with her passion and excitement for creating beautiful, amazing cakes. During our tasting our mothers and ourselves were blown away by the flavors and how Linda's cake was simply spectacular. Once we selected flavors and fillings the hard part for us was selecting a unique cake design. Linda was so understanding and kind. She helped create sketches and allowed us to pick custom paint colors to create the unique fondant we were looking for. When we saw the wedding cake for the first time during our reception I was blown away by how much Linda had exceeded our expectations.. The flavor and quality of Linda's cake was the talk of the night and still now 2 weeks later. I have never been to a wedding were guests actually want 3rds and 4th of cake but our guests did. One guest actually described Linda's cake like edible gold!! Linda at Grounded is a hidden treasure... I strongly recommend her to anyone... Read more

  • Thank you so much for making our wedding cake. It was gorgeous and delicious. Everyone at the wedding loved it! I would absolutely recommend this company. Linda is professional ad loves what she does and it really shows in her work. I love that she incorporates fresh and local ingredients in her cakes. It was a pleasure working with you. We are forever grateful for you being apart of our amazing day.

  • My husband and I booked Grounded NY for our August 2018 wedding after an absolutely delicious tasting. We did not opt to hire a wedding planner/coordinator, so I had the opportunity to work closely with Linda not only on food, but also figuring out rentals leading up to the big day. Linda was incredibly helpful during the planning stages as we crafted a menu and other minute details that were perfectly suited for us. The Grounded team was very professional. During our cocktail hour and reception they would frequently check in with us to make sure that my husband and I were also able to enjoy the food! Our guests, with a wide-range of preferences and dietary needs loved the food and the apple cider doughnuts we had for dessert were a hit! We highly recommend hiring Grounded NY for your catering needs.

  • Initially, I was excited to work with Linda at Grounded for our wedding cake, after reading such wonderful reviews about her cakes and desserts. We used Main Course in New Paltz for the catering, and they offer nice cakes and desserts, but we decided to go with Grounded for our cake to support another local vendor. In retrospect, based on the spotty communication, relatively high cost, and overall quality, we should have used Main Course for the cake as well. In the weeks leading up to our wedding, I emailed Linda several times to ask questions or confirm the design and flavor of our cake. However, I felt the need to follow up on these emails because I didn't receive timely responses. It became frustrating, especially during the final days before the wedding. As an example, the day before our wedding we still hadn't heard from Linda about whether she could deliver the cake to our venue in Rhinebeck (her shop is 10 miles away) or if she approved of the cake stand we planned to use.

  • Linda and her staff put together a beautiful catering experience with some seriously delicious food. I went in trying to engineer a relatively complex menu, and she was upfront that it would be costly and wasn't really in her wheelhouse. I truly appreciated her transparency. In the end we chose from her menu options. Everything was absolutely delicious, and the presentation was beautiful. Dishes that don't sound that exciting (grilled chicken) are transformed in her hands. Her servers are friendly and professional, and it all went off without a hitch. She even prepared a delicious vegan option for a few of our guests. Overall she is very flexible and delivers at a high bar - just be sure to communicate often and clearly.

  • Linda was great to work with leading up to the wedding. She's very nice and friendly and flexible and the cake looked great. I was very pleased with the tasting and everything leading up to the wedding; however, on the day I was disappointed. The food was not like during our tasting and it didn't taste right (things weren't hot and they were either dry or burnt with a different flavor). Also, we were told that the bridal party is taken care of while they're busy taking photos during the cocktail hour. A server will be bringing the bridal party food and drinks so not to worry. This was not the case though. We were never brought any beverages and the first time I got to taste any of the hor d'oeuvres was when my mom brought a plate out to us after about 45 minutes of pictures. This was very disappointing. We were told that the catering staff would help direct the guests where to go for the cocktail hour and they did not. Also, the bartender opened every bottle of wine we had pro... Read more
