  • We worked with Michael for our small-ish wedding (55 adults and 5-6 children). Throughout the entire process, Michael was helpful, friendly and accommodating. He provided a beautiful spread at an affordable price. His staff were professional, warm and provided excellent service. Many of the guests told us how good the food tasted. It was delicious. I would use Helga's again for any event!

  • My husband and I were planning a wedding on a Marine Corps schedule.... from out of town. We didn't have the luxury (or pleasure!) of getting to taste test our way through the wedding planning process to choose our favorite. Instead, we relied on recommendations from our venue, and chose the caterer that gave us the best deal with the best reviews, and was responsive to work with! We chose Helga's after The Briar Patch B&B advertised a special package deal that included appetizers, the main course, china and linen rentals, and the waitstaff/bartender we needed! We never met in person before the wedding day and I'd never even gotten to try the food we selected, but what an incredible experience! Helga's Caterers went above and beyond both before and after the wedding. Their staff was fun, helpful and attentive every step of the way, the place settings were beautiful, the food DELICIOUS, and their event staff really rolled with the punches! My brother surprised my husband with a keg ... Read more

  • From the start Helgas catering made an impression ! They were the first to call and and have a conversation with me vs just emailing me. From then their service was exceptional ! Through the whole process from start to finish they were beyond helpful , working with our budget and many of our diy needs ( I did most of my own decorations !) Whenever I called they always made time for me and either Lynda or Micheal was so patient with me answering questions, changing details , and at times were my sounding board just to assure I had everything covered ! When it came to the wedding day everyone from the maitre’d and wait staff to the bartenders , all were so attentive and pleasant to work with ! I even had to give Francisco ( maitre’de) a hug for his outstanding service which he then gave us such sweet marriage advice ! Lynda also came by to wish us well and make sure everything went smoothly! At one point their was an emergency regarding wine ( we brought our own alcohol ) th... Read more

  • Helga's Caterers was easy to work with from the start. Michael listened to us and was able to design a wonderful menu for our wedding reception that was within our budget. He went out of his way after we had started our tasting to prepare a few extra items due to allergy concerns or something we did not really love. We had passed hors d'oeuvre and heard the duck was cooked perfectly. We also served a dual entree dinner which made it easier on me during the planning/ organizing process. We did have to add some veggie meals and then last minute gluten free meals which were not a problem for Michael and his company. I am very glad my husband and I took time to eat because it was delicious! Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend Helga's Catering to anyone planning an event, reception or wedding.

  • Michael and the Helga's staff were a great choice for our wedding. We chose a barbecue theme and they executed it nicely. Their food was very good and consistent and offered a wide range of options to meet our needs. They were happy to meet with the venue for a run-through and to accommodate changes in linens, flatware, and more in the last few days leading up to our event. Michael is pleasure to work with (and his staff made sure that the bride and groom actually got fed!) and the entire Helga's crew made the culinary portion of the wedding carefree.

  • Helgas Caterers catered our wedding on 6 October 2012 at Paradise Springs Winery in Clifton, Virginia. The service was very efficient but unobtrusive, the food, which included beautifully prepared and moist Chilean Sea Bass, was excellent. Everyone loved the food from the appetizers, to the pumpkin soup, to the two main courses, to the wonderful cake. I would recommend them highly for any special event, big or small.

  • We just got married and Helga's Caterers catered our wedding. We could not ask for better service. They set up both the ceremony and reception cites, were responsive to our requests and any changes we wanted, the food was delicious (BBQ), and the staff could not have been nicer or more accommodating. I would recommend Helga's to anyone getting married in the Northern VA/DC area. Helga's even worked well with our florist (Flowers & Plants) in getting everything set up and taken down.

  • We used Helga's for our rehearsal dinner and wedding reception and couldn't be happier! Michael was very accommodating to our specific requests throughout planning, and he impressed us with his creativity for our wedding day menu which was fabulous! In terms of our wedding weekend, everything was wonderful! The food was incredible - people are still raving, the staff were friendly and professional, everything was on schedule with prompt set up and breakdown. Helga's also provided our buttercream cake which I can honestly say was the best wedding cake I've ever had! We will definitely be using Helga's for our catering needs in the future.

  • Helga's Caterers did a GREAT job with our wedding in September 2011. Every single person that we interacted with from Helga's was personable and professional from start to finish. We were provided with a tasting that included other members of our families. We were able to customize a menu that we wanted while not breaking the bank. We were not rushed or pressured to do anything that we did not want to do, and I was always able to call or email and have my questions answered without feeling like I was pestering them. On the day of our event, Helga's was on-time, organized, and their food was OUTSTANDING! They also provided our wedding cake, which was equally OUTSTANDING! I did not hear one bad comment regarding the food or the service. I would definitely use Helga's again and would highly recommend them to my friends and family.

  • My mother-in-law used Helga's Catering for our bbq themed rehearsal dinner. The food was absolutely delicious!!! They had brisket, ribs, chicken, veggie burgers - it was a perfect southern bbq with a northern twist (which fits DC!). The staff was very friendly and helpful - cleared plates right away and made sure the buffet was never empty! And like I said before - so yummy!

  • To my relief my caterer was amazing! The food was hot and yummy and my guests went out of their way to rave about it. I truly felt taken care of during the wedding day and Michael kept a cool head through it all. I did buffet style which I did NOT want to do but realized it was good for my budget...and he made buffet-style appear elegant and organized! They worked well with my other vendors and set up and broke down in a timely manner. I had an open bar and we provided the drinks. There was some confusion with this setup and it did not go as smoothly as I imagined but the guests didnt notice a thing! At times there was not a quick turn around with communication and I didnt feel like they were readily accessible to me but their flexibiltiy made up for it, as they dealt well with my last minute changes.

  • Very good food and service. Reasonable prices, too. I also appreciated that the staff wrapped up all the leftovers for us to take with us. The only disappointment I had was that we specifically outlined the floor plan about a week before the wedding, but they still didn't set it up exactly as planned. It didn't end up being a big deal that day, but still a little disappointing, considering that we planned it out beforehand.
