  • Putting on the Ritz was fabulous and the best choice we could have made for our wedding caterers. They were easy and generous to work with, accommodating to our needs and preferences, and conscious of working within the means of our budget. And, the food was incredible! I still get comments a month later about how delicious our wedding food was. People said it was the best wedding food they had ever had! And we agree! They are a wonderful team to work with and we couldn’t recommend them more highly.

  • Putting on the Ritz and Angie were outstanding to work with. Angie was a pleasure to work with, and she helped us put together an amazing fall-themed menu for our November wedding. Many guests commented that it was the best food they have ever had a wedding reception. Angie was also able to provide special menu items for those with allergies and dietary restrictions. We couldn't be happier!

  • Putting on the Ritz was automatically our caterer since we had our reception at The Great Room. It made things simple and everything was superb. The open bar options were well-priced. We went with a buffet for both the appetizers and the lunch. The food was fantastic — we had many compliments on it! Servers were also efficient and friendly!

  • We hired Putting on the Ritz for our October wedding. We opted for a seated dinner, cocktail hour, and to purchase our own alcohol for the wedding. Rachael was a joy to work with and was very flexible. The food was amazing (mini chicken and waffles were soooo good) and they even cut our cake for free, which from my research, is rare for caterers to not charge for this. The only issue I had was that I made it clear several times that I had 3 guests with a dairy allergy and even indicated on their place cards that this was the case and my sister ended up not getting the salmon in her meal because of some miscommunication so she was only able to eat mashed potatoes for dinner. Still, overall I would highly recommend POTR as Rachael is great to work with and the business owner even oversaw our wedding and made sure things ran smoothly.

  • I cannot say enough about our experience with Putting on the Ritz. It poured for our outside wedding, and the event staff adapted and put out AMAZING food. Everything was delicious, Neil helped us put together a perfect diverse menu that accommodated everyone and fit within our tight budget. Special requests were handled seamlessly and all my guests raved about the food. We had a pizza station among 4 other stations, which was a humungous hit! The weather was horrible, rainy cold and muddy, but the staff were upbeat, efficient, professional, fun and friendly! They exceeded our expectations in every way!

  • We used POTR for 3 events ( rehearsal dinner, reception, brunch next morning). It was AMAZING! They exceeded our expectations in all areas. The food was exceptional. The service impeccable. It rained for our wedding so two hours before the ceremony, we changed from outside to inside. POTR folks adjusted on the fly to accommodate us. They were professional, flexible, friendly, and very helpful for any requests we had. I HIGHLY recommend OOTR for any occasion!!!

  • We got married last month (June 2018), we didn't actually speak with Putting on The Ritz until the end when it was time to square up on the bill, mainly because the coordinator from our venue works with them directly. My review is solely on the food and day of service which was all amazing. For cocktail hour we had their chicken buffalo dip OH MMM GEEEE, it was the best I've ever had! The servers were so very attentive and stayed on top of everything! I was worried about the temperature of the food because we had a buffet style dinner but they made sure food was at a good temperature. My advice to those going into contract with any caterer is to enter at a low number or the minimum. You can always go up in numbers but not down.

  • From the beginning of planning to the day of our wedding, Bobby and Putting on the Ritz were accomodating, responsive, and flexible. For our budget, Putting on the Ritz provided the best options in our opinion. Guests loved the food, and we were so happy that they put an emphasis on making sure we were fed during our reception as well. Highly recommended!

  • Our biggest wedding priority was the quality of the food, and Putting on the Ritz absolutely delivered. Our venue had a predetermined list of caterers to pick from, and of the 5-6 that we initially contacted, Putting On The Ritz was the only company who actually delivered a sample menu that was exactly in line with the food and budget that we wanted. We worked with Rachael from start to finish and she was so wonderful: Knowledgeable, warm, and very flexible! She was super responsive to all of our questions, even when we emailed her at 10:45 PM in a panic about something not actually that important. The food and service the day of was incredible. Everyone raved about how delicious everything was and the staff even boxed up the leftovers for my husband and I to take home (and there was a generous amount of leftovers!) We had a buffet but the servers brought us a plate full of food right away, so we were actually able to enjoy the meal and still have time to greet our guests. We were a... Read more

  • Everything started off great. At our tasting every single option was incredible and delicious. Our sales manager was Neil and he was very accommodating, but there were some things that just didn’t sit right with me. Prior to the bridal party arriving to the reception, my family reached out to me explaining that salads were being served which was not conducive with the day of schedule that we agreed on in advance. This was pretty confusing and stressful to hear while we were pressed for time taking photos. I was also not thrilled to hear that my parents were approached regarding a tip even before the service was over. I believe this was inappropriate especially considering we had discussed mailing it as an option when we came to look at linens. Also, I never received a final contract, though I requested one to ensure I understood the final bar service details, the number of workers, etc. I especially wanted this because our contracted cost went up after decreasing our guest...

  • Bobby and his team were great! From the initial contact, the walk through of the venue, the tasting and of course the big day. The food was fabulous and we received many compliments on it throughout the night and afterwards. It was everything he promised it would be. I would like to give a special thank you to Denise who took excellent care of us and made sure we had everything we needed or wanted, she was attentive without being intrusive and we felt she really cared about us and our guests. Would certainly recommend Putting on the Ritz for any event and if the need arises we would certainly use them again. Again, hats off to Bobby, Denise and the entire staff. Mercedes & Eulalia

  • I used them years ago for a wedding. The food and the staff were phenomenal! I am trying to hire them again but the phone number listed on the website is not in service. :(

    responded with the following comments.

    Hi Sorry for the inconvenience we switched phone systems over and they have not moved our 800 number yet . The main number 301-725-4220 is up and running as always.
