  • Rachel Livingston-Meko and the team at Bartleby & Sage were outstanding from day one. When we went to do the tasting Rachel was so excited to dream up a perfect menu with us and got the vibe we were going for straight away. When I couldn't make my mind up about chairs and we changed the table layouts a million times she was patient and understand, and as a day-of coordinator she was the perfect balance of communicative and chilled out, nothing seemed like it was a big deal and the flow of the day went really well. When I chickened out of doing the first dance and she smoothly went on to the next thing without batting an eyelid. Bartleby & Sage make the best food we tried, and we tried a few. The menu they put together had everyone talking, my mother still won't shut up about it! They picked up all our bits and pieces the day before to take to the venue in the morning and made sure we had everything when we were clearing out of the venue that night, Rachel even made sure there was some ...

  • We hired Bartleby and Sage for our catering and day of coordination. The menu they put together was exactly what we wanted (food was one of our top priorities for the wedding) from incredibly tasty passed appetizers (lamb chops were a favorite) and signature cocktails to a beautifully plated dinner, passed desserts and late night fried food. They were incredibly flexible when we wanted to change aspects of a dish and it all came out so great! We also loved working with Rachael for our day of needs, she managed all the vendors expertly and I had zero stress the day of! She was also incredibly responsive over email and helped us nail all the details, providing incredibly helpful advice around every decision and handling all the details (and I had many in full disclosure) perfectly. Highly recommend both Bartleby & Sage and Rachael!

  • Amazingly enough, Bartleby and Sage was the first caterer I reached out to, and after getting quotes and researching many others, I came back to them. Having made the decision on The Foundry as our wedding venue, I was super intimidated by the “a la carte” style of wedding planning. Leslie put me and my fiancé at ease completely and made us feel like anything was possible! And it was. We had our dream wedding with amazing, “non traditional” food, exactly how we imagined it. Our family and friends were so impressed by the classy hors d'oeuvres and main courses. We also got multiple compliments about the quality and attentiveness of the staff during the night. I also highly recommend booking Leslie’s planning services. I didn’t have to worry about anything day of. And prior to the wedding, somehow Leslie made us feel like we were her only client, taking multiple days to help us with the rentals at the rental studio. And a bonus, is that this was the only catering company t... Read more

  • When I think about the best thing about working with Leslie and the Bartleby and Sage team its almost impossible to rank order of what they did best. Needless to say having amazing tasting, quality food and drink at the wedding is high on the list, but additionally almost totally stress-free planning that is totally flexible (you want a bourbon cart, a craft beer bar and a carvel ice-cream cake...no problem) is up there too. Also what's the point of planning being easy and food bring great if the team working at our wedding on the night were not so great - the servers were fun, polite and so helpful and the kitchen team made sure everything ran so smoothly. Its too hard to say one thing that makes Bartley & Sage so great so take my word for it, it would be hard to find a catering team that makes planning the wedding as fun and easy, lets you enjoy the wedding and not worry about anything and generates literally hundreds of comments from guests about the amazing food, huge and plentiful...

  • We hired Bartleby & Sage to cater our 200+ person, brunch wedding at 26 Bridge in Dumbo, Brooklyn. Rachael was our point person and she was amazing to work with. She really understood our vision and put together a menu proposal that was exactly what we wanted. She then stayed on top of every single detail every step of the way. Their team is creative and talented. The food was delicious and looked amazing. They helped us create a cutom bloody mary bar with unique toppings that our guests can't stop raving about. We can't say enough good things about them and are hoping to attend future events catered by them!

  • Bartleby & Sage’s presentation, culinary talent and staff professionalism on our wedding day were stellar. But equally important to my husband Sam and I was the creative process Molly conducted with us in the months leading up to it. Neither of us came in with “dream day” ideas, so it was a major benefit to have Molly’s expert insights on everything AND her encouragement for us to discover and do things that fit our values. There were some things we were doing “differently” with the wedding (including using a space that had never been used for events before), and Molly’s artist-oriented approach was fabulous: new structures and weird limitations were just reasons to get more creative. It worked. Throughout the planning process, we could also sense her respect for her chefs and wait staff, which was important to us. Ultimately, food-wise, our appetizers were a fusion of Asian cuisines and came out spectacularly. The main dinner and desserts was a completely different cu... Read more

  • My wife and I hired Bartleby and Sage to cater our wedding and could not be happier with their performance. We worked primarily with Leslie and from the get go she was attentive to our needs, responsive to emails, and an all-around pleasant person to work with. We’re both vegetarians and she was not only able to build an exquisite, (mostly) meat free menu, but did an excellent job of finding ways to incorporate meat on the side to satisfy our non vegetarian guests. Shortly before the wedding, we also hired Leslie for her day-of planning services, which was a huge help. With her presence, the day ran without a hiccup, and knowing that she was taking care of the little details that we just didn’t want to think about on our big day took a lot of stress off of our backs. During the wedding, the staff was kind, efficient, and extremely professional. In summary, we strongly recommend hiring Bartleby and Sage - you won’t be disappointed.

  • Leslie and her team at Bartleby and Sage were amazing! They were so accommodating and professional from start to finish. They made the day and everyone is still talking about how incredible the food and drinks were. From our first tasting which was free! Oh my goodness, you can spend so much money just on tastings alone trying to find the right caterer. Leslie was amazing- she even let my mom come at no additional cost. The tasting was out of this world. She was warm and inviting. You knew immediately you were in great hands. We tasted almost everything we asked for and it was a no brainer. We knew we were going with Bartleby & Sage. They will also work with in your budget and give you different options to choose from cost wise and not make you feel any which way about it. With some other caterers they can make you feel almost bad for being on a budget. Not Bartleby & Sage; They are so down to earth and just want to help you create something awesome. I would recommend them 100 times ov... Read more

  • PERFECT. Leslie was amazing to work with and Molly Ballard, our Captain, was just perfect. They could not have made our experience easier or more enjoyable. 5 stars all around! We would absolutely recommend Bartleby & Sage to anyone!!! The food is PHENOMENAL. Truly. Our wedding was 5 days ago and people are still talking about it. We went with stations and 6 passed apps. We opted for the Homage to Summer Station and the American Traditional. We had a lot of vegetarians so Leslie found an amazing vegetarian gumbo for us....and the spicy fried chicken was to die for. People kept asking us if we got any leftovers....but it was so good, that, no! It was all gone. The collard greens - as described by some of our friends born and raised in Alabama - were the best collard greens they've ever had. Our guests all wanted to know if Bartleby & Sage had a restaurant....I think they should! We'd dine there all the time :) You won't regret it and your guests will thank you too! "Be... Read more

  • Was looking for an inexpensive menu for my wedding, Bartleby & Sage has a great drop-off menu that fit our pricing. Leslie and Molly were so quick with their replies to my questions and very helpful. I will be recommending them to friend's and family for their catering needs.

  • My husband and I reached out to many caterers during the wedding planning process. We sent each of them some background on ourselves and what we were envisioning for the day. Bartleby and Sage was the only one that immediately emailed us with a list of options that really felt tailored to us and our taste, not a sample menu of expected wedding food. Leslie is a seasoned caterer with strong relationships across the industry, she was immensely helpful in helping sort out all of our rentals and offered her perspective on what we should and shouldn't invest in. All of our guests could not stop talking about the food her and her team prepared for us, and the professionalism of the staff day-of. We highly recommend B&S!

  • We worked with Leslie and Katherine for our 170 person wedding at Sound River Studios. High up on the list of things we cared about getting right for our wedding was the food so we reached out to many caterers in the wedding planning process. In the end, though a few caterers including B&S were well-rated and flexible with pricing, we settled on B&S for three reasons we felt were invaluable - we'd heard rave reviews about the food from friends who had been to B&S-catered weddings, B&S cares about food presentation, and Leslie had experience working at our venue. Some other things we enjoyed leading up to the wedding: The complimentary tasting was a wonderful experience and gave us all the more confidence in Leslie and her team. We could provide our own liquor and dessert for the wedding. Though we were having a buffet, they offered an option to have a plated salad course so that our guests would have something to do while waiting for their turn in line. B&S kills it from a flexibil... Read more
