  • First off, RSVP had great food (their appetizers were fantastic) and was great the day of the wedding. There were no issues I knew of, everyone ate, and the only thing that was even slightly off was that they didn't bring around champagne flutes until the third toast (oops). Although I didn't really have to deal with this first hand because we had a planner, their communication was not great. It took forever for them to get back to us with a quote, menu options, and kept pushing off our tasting until it turned out to be about 2.5 weeks before the wedding (first contacted 6+ months before the wedding). I wish they had been upfront about the reason they kept dodging tastings, that their menu changes a lot every season. They promised that we'd be able to taste on a weekend, but because they pushed back the tasting until September, they ended up being "too busy" for a weekend tasting. We chose RSVP in part because they were one of the 6 approved caterers for our wedding and competiti... Read more

  • We cannot say enough good things about RSVP. They were instrumental in making our wedding perfect-- and I'm not exaggerating. Everything went so smoothly that it is unbelievable. RSVP contributed to this in the following ways: -Our representatives were responsive, respectful, calm, informative, and extraordinarily helpful throughout the process. They made me feel like I had everything completely under control when I was otherwise very stressed. They answered all of our many, many questions and made suggestions that I never would have thought of (e.g. getting 10-hour candles instead of the little votives we had planned to use; adjustments to the dishes in accordance with our vague concerns; types of linens; placement of tables...). -The service staff at the wedding was the most impressive I've seen, and all of our guests commented on how attentive the staff was without being intrusive. It was white-glove service for a demanding group, all of whom were blown away. -The food was insane... Read more

  • I worked with Marla and the RSVP team for my wedding on 9/25/15. They were extraordinary from start to finish. I had a very specific idea for a brunch reception, and as I was speaking to several caterers, RSVP really seemed to "get" my vision and gave me the most options. They had the most flexibilty with their menu for equal or lesser prices than other caterers, so it was an easy choice to make! Marla must have worked on at least half a dozen proposals as we tweaked the menu, but each time she was gracious and prompt. When my mom and I went in for our tasting, we were so impressed with the care and time that was put into it! They had the linens out for us to see so we could choose which we liked and a table fully set to show us dishes, napkins, and flatware. Every single item was absolutely DELICIOUS and we were encouraged to discuss any other changes to the menu with the chef. On the wedding day, I could not have been more amazed at the service and efficiency of the staff. ... Read more

  • We LOVED working with Megan and her team at RSVP catering. Megan was incredibly responsive to our emails and calls; we had a number of calls with her to get our custom menu perfect, arrange for a tasting, etc. Also, my (now) husband and I decided that we didn't want to do a seated dinner; instead, we did buffet style heavy hors devours with a menu that was special to me and my husband. The food was spectacular. Everyone raved about the pierogies, poptarts, and fish and chips specifically. They set aside 2 plates for my husband and I at the very beginning of the night to be sure that we ate. Their staff were fantastic all evening long and made sure the space stayed clean, the food stayed fresh, and the drinks kept flowing. They also helped with the set-up before the event. Honestly, the celebration would not have been so special without RSVP catering.

  • We can not say enough about the service Megan, Marla and the rest of the RSVP team provided for our wedding. From day one they made everything easy! From the menu to the drinks to the cup cakes it was all simple, elegant and on point. All of our guests said it was the best wedding food they have ever had and we completely agree. We will be using RSVP for any future event we can, we were that impressed with them.

  • RSVP catering was fantastic to work with. In the beginning we did have some issues with no one getting back to us through phone or e-mail, but it was because they were moving around offices and were having some issues with their servers and phones. It was a hassle at first, but they graciously offered us a discount which helped in our decision to sign with them. The person we had been working with left the company about 3 months before our wedding and we were a little concerned because she had been wonderful to work with. We then started working with Megan and Marla who were great. Between the two of them, they answered countless e-mails and phone calls with questions and changes to what we wanted. They always aimed to please no matter how many changes we made. The food was fantastic. We got compliments all night long from the hors d'oeuvres to the meals to the dessert. We were able to meet the chef at our tasting and discuss with him any changes we wanted made to any of the ... Read more

  • We simply cannot give enough praise to RSVP catering. Our wedding was at Arena Stage, which has an approved list of caterers. Initially we went with Purple Onion, primarily because they gave us the most competitive quote. However, after a disastrous encounter with them (which we have reviewed separately), we contacted RSVP (2 months before our event!). They gave us the flexibility that Purple Onion would not, provided a quote with MORE services (same seated meals but with more hours, more servers, more equipment) but at a price that was far better. We could tell the RSVP cared about having a smooth & professional event as much as we did. They never hassled us about making payments, & postponed their typical deposit schedule until we had all the details in their proper place. Megan was extremely responsive in our communications. My husband & I asked for numerous revisions with menus, guest counts, desserts, etc. She was patient, professional & very enthusiastic through the entire proces... Read more

  • RSVP has catered other events I've attended and I knew they would be the right company for our wedding--from the planning to the tasting to the actual event RSVP was there for us and we couldn't be happier. They worked seamlessly with our venue and treated all of our guests like VIP's. My partner and I were given constant attention and they helped us coordinate the special parts of the reception so everything flowed smoothly. Our guests marveled at the service and the quality of the food--unlike some catering companies RSVP does not skimp on servers, etc. and that makes a huge difference in your guests' experience. The President/CEO, Larry Abrams, is a wonderful man who sets high standards for his company. Amanda handled all of the planning and did a terrific job of accommodating our special requests and making sure everything was timed perfectly--Humberto was at our side all evening anticipating our every need with a smile. They fed our vendors, kept everyone's drinks filled, served a... Read more

  • Marsha and RSVP catering did such a wonderful job. I think we might have had a rocky start but they were super responsive and helped us achieve our dream wedding. I really enjoyed working with them for our wedding and the food was so delicious! Guests mentioned the good being the best they had had at a wedding! I was also so thankful for their help in the flow of the evening.

  • We hired RSVP catering for our wedding at Top of the Town in Arlington, VA. Marsha Meltzer provide us with an elegant menu and lovely table setting options. The food was amazing (which surprised many seasoned wedding guests! lol) and exactly what we expected from our tasting. There were some hiccups at the reception with table setup and bar organization, but no flaws were fatal. The event was lovely and delicious and the staff friendly and attentive. I would recommend RSVP catering!

  • RSVP catered our reception and the food was excellent - we were actually surprised at how good it was. It got rave reviews from our guests. They have a nice selection of really tasty apps and the entrees were very good. The bread basket is also amazing. We found them to be very responsive. It is expensive but that seems to be the market here. We felt our coordinator could be a bit brusque and pushy at times but she was ultimately a pro at the event.

  • We used RSVP for our wedding at The Winery at Bull Run and the food was absolutely amazing! We received several compliments on how great the food tasted from our guests. We had a few bumps in the road with two account managers, but once our wedding was handed over to Megan everything was perfect. She worked with Natasha at the Winery to make sure everything ran smoothly that day. My husband and I would definitely recommend RSVP catering!
