  • We went for a "tasing" before we chose this vendor. They had the room set as if we were attending a wedding based on possible ideas. We chose from an extensive menu and had so many options!

  • We couldn’t have asked for a better person to work with. Cassie was beyond helpful. She was everything I needed for my wedding and helped me out together a wonderful wedding during COVID. If you’re a bride looking for someone who is amazing look no further. Cassie truly was wonderful. I’d give Cassie alone 10stars if I could.

  • Great experience! At the tasting, I voiced concern over the chicken being a bit dry and Angie reassured us it would be perfect the day of. We also decided we wanted the chicken prepared in a different way (breaded and fried instead of baked) and it turned out delicious the day of the wedding, not dry at all! All the sides and other dishes were amazing as well!

  • I want to extend my sincere thanks to Neil and the entire crew of Putting on the Ritz. We had so many choices from food to linens. Neil helped us with the layout of the wedding and reception at the Newton White Mansion. The design that he came up with was perfect. They have worked at the venue numerous times and it showed! From the setup of the chairs to the set up of the tables and buffet stations, everything was just wonderful. The food was prepared fresh!! Nothing frozen. From the time they started cooking the food, my guest were anxiously awaiting the meal. The smell was delightful! I received so many complements from the guest! Everyone said that they had never had food like that at a wedding. YUMMY!! The food for the cocktail hour was just a warm up for the meal. I have to say that the one food everyone raved about was the spinach dip at the cocktail hour. OMG!! When you hire them not if, you have to have that dip for your wedding or event. I have numerous food allergies and ... Read more

  • Really loved working with Claudia as a partner during our wedding planning and wedding day experience. From the beginning, Claudia helped answer all of our questions (no matter how detailed or abstract) extremely quickly and efficiently. She and her team helped make our wedding venue so beautiful and accommodated custom décor and requests with a smile. Don't hesitate to book POTR for your wedding, I'm so happy we did and would recommend to any bride or groom looking for a reliable and expert catering company and coordinator. Thank you Claudia!

  • Putting on the Ritz was clearly the caterer we wanted for our wedding. I emailed 5 caterers when trying to decide on who to have cater our wedding reception, and they were the best about working with our budget. We gave them a little input on some must-have foods (like crab) and they whipped up a delicious-sounding menu under the budget that we requested—and they could make everything gluten-free so the groom and his mother would be able to eat everything offered at the wedding! Claudia was easy to work with and very responsive to emails, even when there were a few bumps in the road with the guest list. Everyone enjoyed the food at the wedding, and the service at the wedding was great. We had a very short ceremony but the staff kept things moving quickly so everyone had their food and time to eat in the hour between being seated and the champagne toast. We also appreciated Claudia working with is on the open bar—we really wanted a coffee liquor that was available with their top-tie... Read more

  • Their quality of service is amazing and its worth your money. Bobby is a wonderful person though busy but is kind to respond to emails and calls and keeps up with everything you need. They draw the seating plan for you, make the adjustment, set up for your big day and tear down after, makinf your day stress free

  • The food was delicious; we got compliments throughout the whole event! The catering team was very helpful on the day of the wedding, and Rae was wonderful to work with—flexible, friendly, and willing to help or offer advice. Also, the catering is very affordable! Some of the details needed to be confirmed multiple times, but the overall experience was wonderful, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to a friend!

  • Bobby and his staff were all very nice to us throughout the planning process, but he was difficult to work with. His emails were often unintelligible and it was sometimes tough to get a response. We felt we had to initiate almost all of the conversations about logistics between the time we signed our contract and the week before the wedding. Once we hit the week before the wedding, Bobby was clearly more focused and ultimately everything came together and the food was good. Bobby clearly has a lot of experience and knows what he is doing, but the whole process was more frustrating and stressful than it needed to be.

  • If I could give 0 stars I would. Their food is great and the servers themselves were okay but that's about it. We met with Claudia to create a layout plan, everything was perfect. Was told they would set and tear down everything. The day of none of that happened. My father, mother, bridesmaids, and family friends had to go up and start setting up. Nothing was where it was supposed to be and it was a jumbled mess. Everything we had was in labeled boxes. The servers never finished setting up for the thank you toast my father was having so we wound up doing that on the dance floor. After everything was said and done, they broke down everything rather quickly but totally forgot about our ceremony site. It rained the next morning so my floral swag, arbor, rug, candles, and wooden hourglass from our sand ceremony were soaked. Your food is good but rhats about it. I'm extremely dissatisfied by Putting On The Ritz. I hope other brides have better luck!

    responded with the following comments.

    I am pleased to hear that you and your guests enjoyed our food and that our staff were attentive. That being said, I am very saddened to learn that you were not happy with the overall service provided at your wedding this weekend from Putting on the Ritz. I would like you to know that we have a strong commitment to making sure our clients’ events are executed with the utmost care, and it is always our intention to provide the highest level of service and expertise from the initial point of contact through the conclusion of the event. When we met to discuss the final event details, I mentioned that if you were not going to have an onsite coordinator, we would be able to assist with putting out your items. At our meeting, you mentioned that you had a seating chart, a welcome sign and favors for the place settings and for another table at the end of the event. When our event manager arrived, there were approximately 8 boxes of items that you wanted placed out and while they may have been labeled, there were no instructions for her on how and where you wanted everything. She only has a limited amount of time for set-up so she asked members of your family/bridal party if they had any knowledge on how you wanted things. Which, I believe, is why they stepped in to assist her in putting items out. This was probably why items were not as you wanted them to look. Believe me, had I known in advance what/how you needed everything, we certainly could have planned to have additional staff, if necessary, to get done in a timely manner. Unfortunately, I never received any information from you regarding any other set-up or breakdown requirements prior to the wedding. I was sorry to hear that items from your ceremony were left. Our event manager neglected to retrieve the DJ table/linen from the ceremony at which time she would have noticed your items and should have asked you if you needed our assistance with retrieving them. Again, had I known in advance that you needed help with these items, I could have had a note on the paperwork to make sure the necessary steps were taken. For the timing of the event, we had a signed contract and, additionally, an event details sheet that I created for you and you approved both with a 10:00pm conclusion. When we attempted to start breaking down at 10:00pm, we were informed that the event went until 11:00pm. At that point, we graciously extended our services until 11:00pm including the premium open bar, even after we were told that we would not receive any other payment for the additional hour of service that we were providing and for which we were not contracted. Again, we are very sorry that your experience with Putting on the Ritz was not as you had hoped. Putting on the Ritz has been exceeding expectations on a consistent basis for over 30 years and as you can see from our many other reviews, your experience was highly unusual. Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback which we will take into consideration for our future events.
