  • We hired Putting on the Ritz as the caterer for our wedding at Gramercy Mansion in June of 2019. The process leading up to the wedding was great, we planned our menu and seating arrangement through Claudia. Claudia provided us a back up plan in case of the rain and met with us to go through the entire schedule and was very responsive to our emails and questions. The day of we had Denise assigned to us as our day of manager. Denise is the absolute best!!! She is so kind, upbeat, and positive and made sure that our day went smoothly. The food was amazing, and all of our guests were raving about it the next day.

  • I worked with Neil, who is absolutely amazing. From our very first call he was beyond helpful and knowledgeable. He was super fast to respond to emails, answered my 1000 questions numerous times, worked and changed our menu 10 plus times and more. He was so accommodating and helpful. The food was amazing! Normally you wonder if the food will be as good as it was on your tasting day, and I can say with 100% honestly it was just as good or better, and they served 140 people plated dinners. Our guests loved all of the appetizers and dinner. The wait staff was beyond professional and kind. POTR was outstanding! I would use them again in a heartbeat! Thank you!!!

  • Bobby and his team truly made our wedding day come together perfectly!! He was so professional to work with, and was so knowledgeable about displays, timelines, and weddings in general! He was readily available by email or phone. The day of our wedding, everything looked beautiful, and the staff was great. The bartenders and servers were friendly and professional. We received so many compliments about how delicious the food was and how beautiful everything looked!! I cannot recommend Putting On the Ritz enough!!

  • Putting on the Ritz made our wedding planning so much easier! We did the all inclusive package they offered. This made payments easier and planning less stressful. The day of they made sure we had food on our table and drinks even while we were running around busy! The only thing I would change is that the person I was speaking to throughout the entire planning process was not the same person there on the actual wedding day. Everything still went smoothly. Would definitely recommend!

  • We worked with Neil at Putting on the Ritz to put together a buffet-style wedding menu that was delicious without breaking our budget. Despite my frazzled and disorganized state through much of the process, Neil was very patient and helped us make sure every detail was taken care of, such as arranging for special meals for our guests with dietary restrictions, and coordinating the serving of wine and beer which we brought ourselves. I was warned by many that I might not get to eat on my own wedding day, but Putting on the Ritz set aside appetizers for us ahead of time and snagged us each a full plate from the buffet before anyone else. I'm happy to say that we both got to eat all the food that we spent so much time picking out - I was very excited about the buffalo chicken wontons, and they didn't let me down! We received countless compliments on the mashed potatoes, and were delighted to receive a tray each of leftover mashed potatoes and London broil afterwards.

  • The food is excellent and they set everything up beautifully. Angie, who manages the Great Room at Savage Mill (our wedding venue), is a boss and a saint. She managed to put up with some very difficult family politics and was always on our side. She also offered no-nonsense advice and superior organization. Thank you for making our wedding day so special!

  • Everything was beyond perfect-the food, the service, the venue... Unfortunately, it rained the night of my sons wedding but Angie and her staff were extremely flexible and made sure the bride was happy and got everything she wanted. It was a truly magical evening! Bobby went above and beyond working with us on the menu and details. I would wholeheartedly recommend Putting on the Ritz for any occasion.

  • We did not want traditional wedding food for our day. In fact, we went a very different direction and wanted to have breakfast for dinner for our big day. POTR delivered a perfect breakfast buffet that everyone could enjoy. The Captain Crunch French Toast they made was AMAZING. It made for the perfect main course for a breakfast for dinner meal. Plus, who doesn’t love bacon?! Their servers were also amazing. Always checking in on us and always making sure our glasses were full. The bar also served drinks that complimented our breakfast menu with Irish coffee and mimosas. They were able to accommodate all of our needs for the perfect breakfast for dinner wedding and we could not recommend them more.

  • We couldn't have been more thrilled with the service we received from Putting on the Ritz! They were by far the most affordable option on the "Approved Vendors" list for our wedding reception venue, and we certainly got a huge bang for our buck. Throughout the planning process, our contact person Claudia Raymond was extremely responsive and pleasant to work with. POTR was very flexible and accommodating: they allowed us the option of stocking the open bar ourselves, which was quite a money-saver; and there was no fuss involved in adding a vegetarian option to our menu when a few guests requested it rather late in the game. POTR even helped set up (and later pack up) several decor items the day of the event (guest book, favors, etc.), which was immensely helpful since our ceremony was off-site and we didn't have a day-of coordinator to take care of those tasks. The day of, all the food was delicious, from the passed apps to the salads to the dessert spread. I'd especially recommend the ... Read more

  • Neil and his team at POTR did a superb job catering our DC wedding. Starting with our free tasting (tons of food!), we were impressed with the quality of their food, professionalism, and competitive pricing. Planning and altering the order was easy with Neil's help. On the day of the event, they were efficient in their set up and break down of the outdoor ceremony and indoor reception. We chose the buffet option (bride and groom were served at our table), and provided our own alcohol, which they served from two mini bars. The food and table settings were wonderful - lots of compliments from our guests. POTR was recommended to us by a friend, and we're certainly glad we chose them for our wedding.

  • 5 stars across the board! Bobby Mitchell and his team at Putting on the Ritz are top notch and I don't think you can find a better value in Central Maryland. The price per person was exactly where we needed it to be (honestly, it was even less than we had budgeted for) and we didn't lose any quality. Our passed hors d'oeuvres were a hit (the mini crab balls and especially the CUBANO sliders). But I was very impressed with the buffet. A lot of times, you end up with rubbery chicken and tough beef but this was not the case. Our chicken breast was flavorful and moist and the carved top round was tender as well. The bar service was everything we needed and Bobby even worked with us within our venue rules to serve some additional alcohol options that we provided on our own. This allowed us to give a personal taste to some out of town guests as well as show our true colors as a couple with some of our favorite drinks. If you're looking at caterers that want $100+/person, you're do... Read more

  • I would highly recommend putting on the ritz! They stepped in and saved my wedding day after issues with another caterer and our venue emerged a few months before the wedding. They provided top notch service and were professional through the whole process. I would highly recommend them!

  • Putting on the Ritz provided all catering at our rehearsal dinner/wedding/reception at the Historic Savage Manor House, Savage MD. Our event coordinator was Rae - she was outstanding !!!! Because of the ease of working with her to accomplish all the intricate details for our celebrations- we just handed the day over to her and enjoyed every minute of time with our guests. The food prepared and served by Putting on the Ritz was incredible !!! Our rehearsal dinner was a sit down Italian dinner (chicken parmesan and balsamic green beans - heavenly) for 30 which was so delicious....our wedding reception was a buffet for 50 that included crab cakes (amazing), beef bourgigion (mouthwatering), grilled veggies, a delicious pasta dish...everything ran so smoothly my groom and I were actually able to eat !!! They also passed hors d'oeuvres immediately after the ceremony and manned the open bars from before the ceremony began until the last dance ended. I cannot recommend Putting on... Read more

  • Wow! We found Putting on the Ritz through our wedding venue (Belmont Manor). When we told the venue that we had booked with Bobby and Putting on the Ritz, they said that we had nothing to worry about and that they would do a phenomenal job. My new hubby and I didn't truly know what that meant until the wedding, and boy was it true! First off, Bobby and his team are so professional and flexible. At our tasting, we made some special requests...less bacon (who would say such a thing?), having meat on the side rather than incorporated in the dish, and changing up the alcohol options. Bobby was responsive and able to oblige all of our requests. We decided to do stations during the reception and were so happy with the result. My husband and I were totally fine with the thought of going to get our food, but Bobby's team continued to serve us throughout the night. They checked on us often and even snuck our cake plates onto our table. My hubby and I had never put much thought... Read more

  • Putting on the Ritz catered our wedding. They were pretty reasonable in the planning months, though sometimes it took a while to get a response back on questions. There were some misunderstandings and communication was generally smooth. Great food--we had lots of compliments and the included tables/chairs/linens made us feel like we weren't being nickle and dimed, it was easy to get everything from one vendor for dinner.
