  • The Main Course team made our wedding more spectacular than we could have ever imagined. From our first meeting over a year ago, throughout the planning process, and re-planning process when we had to downsize due to COVID, Amanda, Emily, Hogan, Bruce, and the full team were unbelievable in every aspect. They have tremendous attention to detail, they helped us brainstorm and develop the perfect menu, and they kept our plans on track by also working with our other vendors to keep tabs on the full event. While our wedding weekend shifted from 200 people to 20, the Main Course team made it the most special, intimate, and perfect celebration I could have ever imagined. The food is beyond spectacular - it embraces the local Hudson valley cuisine while also being inventive and exciting. I could go on and on about the team, their business, and especially their food; but I can't recommend them highly enough.

  • If you are looking for delicious food, TOP of the line service, and an amazing wedding coordinator, look no further. Choosing Main Course to cater our wedding was 110% one of the best decisions we made during our wedding planning process. The food was excellent (beyond even typical "good" wedding food) and we received loads of compliments from our guests. Drinks were always topped off and the Main Course staff was always one step ahead of the game. Bruce and Amanda were extremely detail oriented, communicative, and all around an absolute pleasure to work with. Amanda went above and beyond in planning and nailed my vision - I am a bit of a type A personality and I really appreciated all her email communication in the months leading up to the wedding. She will work with you on everything from choosing your menu, rentals, decorating, time lines, seating schematics, the rehearsal, and the big day. Everything went incredibly smoothly day of and my family and I knew we were in excellent ha... Read more

  • Main Course was absolutely incredible. Our guests could not stop raving about the food. They were incredibly organized, communicative and so willing to collaborate on some unique special treats for our wedding guests. They were also just an absolute joy to work with. Would recommend these guys 1000x over!

  • I am not even sure where to start! We used Main Course for our wedding and it was a wonderful experience! Amanda and Emily and the rest of the gang were on point and super helpful throughout the entire planning process. There was rain in the forecast for our wedding day and we opted for only one tent for cocktail hour and just hoped for the best with the outdoor ceremony. Emily was great in making sure everything ran on time that day and we were able to get our guests to cocktail hour before the rain! We received so many compliments on the food and everyone left stuffed.

  • Main Course Catering was the best, I'm so glad we chose them to cater our wedding. Not only was the food amazing - our guests, my husband and I were blown away - but Amanda and Emily were so communicative, on top of it, and accommodating throughout the whole process. It really put my mind at ease to work with them - there were quite a few elements I hadn't even considered leading up to the wedding that Amanda made sure to align with me on, and on the day of, Emily ran everything so seamlessly. Working with them was one of the best decisions we made in advance of the wedding - I was considering going really cheap with food and just getting a food truck or some BBQ delivered but I'm a bit of a foodie and wanted to treat our guests to something special considering some of them were flying across the country to celebrate with us. I didn't really consider how much their years of experience working weddings would elevate the whole event and was very pleasantly surprised. Even our venue m... Read more

  • Working with Main Course has been an absolute dream from start to finish. From booking them a year out from the wedding all the way through the wedding itself, Main Course was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful on every question we had, large and small. We worked with Amanda, who I can't recommend enough - she was so knowledgeable and was always available for anything we needed. There were times we forgot a deadline or didn't know what we should choose, and Amanda was never anything less than very kind and of the utmost help in every way. The food was absolutely incredible, and the service was excellent as well. From the beginning we knew one of the most important things to us was having great food, and Main Course was our top choice in that regard. We got many compliments from our guests on the quality of the food and drinks, as well as on the efficiency and helpfulness of the servers and bartenders. We provided our own coffee and wedding cake, and it was so exciting to see how h... Read more

  • I cannot rate Main Course highly enough. In the planning stages we mostly worked with Amanda, who accommodated all our requests (including an all-vegan wedding for our very mixed crowd, which she described as "not a challenge"). She thought of all the little details that weren't even on our radar, was patient with our indecision, and really worked with us to identify our vision for our wedding and bring it to life. For the rehearsal and wedding day, Emily was our point person, and she was an absolute superstar. Totally organized, calm, professional, kind. If there were any emergencies or disasters behind the scenes (I really doubt it, given the level of preparation), my husband and I certainly weren't aware of them; we just got to enjoy our day to the fullest without worrying about any of the logistical stuff. We have heard nothing but glowing reviews about the food as well, from vegan, vegetarian, and omnivore alike. Our culinarily (is that a word?) unadventurous guests weren'... Read more

  • Hiring Main Course to cater and coordinate our wedding was one of the best decisions we made. Amanda was there every step of the way during the planning stages and put us at ease during what is a pretty stressful time. Amanda, Bruce, Hogan, and the Main Course staff made our wedding day completely flawless. If there were any issues that day we never knew about them. They were extremely attentive, helpful, and creative! We had a beautiful hanging floral display on the chuppah during our ceremony and the staff re-purposed it for the cake table and it was gorgeous. As for the food, many of our guests told us it was the best food they ever had at a wedding and we couldn’t agree more!

  • Main Course were the utmost professionals while working with them on our wedding. From our first tasting, we knew that we were in great hands! The food selections are delicious and they have a wide variety of hors d'oeuvres, main dishes and desserts. They helped us manage our budget and handled all of the rentals for the wedding. They provided detailed floor plans and timelines for the day and worked with us to tweak everything until it was perfect. The whole team went above and beyond for us! We had a few difficulties with our venue and Amanda, Bruce and their team helped problem solve, were basically our therapists, helped us get in contact with other amazing vendors and ensured that the day was everything we dreamed of. Many of our guested noted that it was the best wedding fare they'd ever had and the service and day of coordination was absolutely seamless. To note a few highlights: After the wedding ceremony, they brought us a sample of the cocktail hors d'oeuvres and champagne fo... Read more

  • I am so happy that we chose Main Course to cater our wedding. When we stumbled into their cafe on main st. a few years back after a hike in the area, I told my then-boyfriend that this place was going to cater our wedding. 5 years later, here I am writing a review on their page to proclaim my since gratitude and thanks for their unbelievable service. The food was delicious and the support from day one all the way up to day of the wedding was exceptional. Amanda and Emily held my digital hand as we exchanged hundreds of emails. Despite my frazzled state of mind at times, she helped me feel at ease throughout the entire planning process. They helped so many of my visions come to life. On the day of the wedding, Emily was right there with us throughout the evening without feeling like she was on our tail. She always made sure we had food in our tummies and drinks in our hands. She helped the event move so smoothly. I really appreciate all the effort and support from Main Course. The whole... Read more

  • Bruce and Amanda came highly recommended from many of our other vendors and for good reason! During the whole process, Bruce and Amanda made us feel like our wedding was the only one they had. All of our guests kept raving about the food during our wedding and Bruce came out multiple times to personally verify that everything was perfect. Thank you Main Course for a wonderful night.

  • I can’t say enough about the Main Course; they were perfect from start to finish. We were on the fence about what kind of wedding we wanted until we met with Amanda from Main Course. She listened to what we envisioned and created an evening that was better than we could have ever imagined. The focus of our wedding was on the food; we enjoyed a seven course wine pairing dinner. Main course came up with an outstanding menu; one that our guests will never forget. We are still hearing from our guests how it was the best food they’ve ever had at a wedding. It was not only the food but also coming up with how the night will go, how it will look, how we will be seated, what flowers will be there, and more. Amanda was our wedding savior. She helped us with everything I just described and was just as excited as we were. Need help with wine pairing? They have an in house professional for that. Need someone who knows the space to do all of your flower arrangements? They have an in hou... Read more

  • We were paired with Emily and truly loved working with her. Our overall experience was good not great. The price per plate is a lot but it also includes linens/ glassware and the staff gratuities and tax. Our frustrations were mostly were that we did our tasting in the spring (we got married in the fall) I wish they had told us it would have been better to do it in season (which sounds obvious) but when we got to the tasting a lot of the items we chose weren't available so we didn't get the full effect) this was annoying bc we went into the wedding a little "blind". Our biggest frustration would be the alcohol we had a bunch of different tastes within our small wedding and it seemed very difficult to have an flexibility in this. I (the bride) wanted moscato and no one else really drinks this so we had to bring our own bottle which to me is absurd. We paid thousands of dollars for the food and I had to bring my own bottle. I felt that they could have accommodated this much better. Last ... Read more
