  • This is the best catering company, ever, thanks to the attention to detail and overall professionalism of Ruth MacBean. On two separate occasions in August 2016, she was able to put together two very large events, with involved many last minute details! She handled each challenge effortlessly and was able to provide just the right mix of appetizers, drinks and overall desserts. She is a Rock Star and you can not go wrong with letting her handle all of the catering, so that you can focus on other details with any event!

    Thank you Melinda, Catering in the Great Hall of the Department of Justice was indeed an awesome experience. A stunning room in one of the great Washington DC historic buildings. It was great fun!

  • We used Ruth MacBean as our caterer for our wedding. She & her team did a wonderful job! One of the things we worried about was finding a professional who would cater a same sex wedding in a church setting. She surpassed our expectations, as every detail was covered. Everything was just right. She thought of everything & even went above & beyond to ensure we had a wonderful cocktail hour & dinner reception.

  • You should absolutely work with Ruth! She is so fun and easy to work with, she provided us with so many personalizations, and she was an incredible problem solver providing a fantastic meal and cake in a non traditional venue. Her value, & that she can hook you up with table/chair etc rentals, is incredible. 5 stars!!

  • Ruth was very responsive during the whole wedding planning process. She was quick to answer our questions and flexible with us throughout the whole process. We were able to provide our own alcohol and she helped us work within our budget the whole time. The food was awesome and she even makes the cake too! We were so happy with everything and can't thank Ruth enough!

  • I initially found Ruth and Catering by Teatime through a simple Google search. We knew we wanted a daytime fun-for-all-ages reception reminiscent of the Great British Bakeoff garden party, close to public transportation for all our DC friends, but without the crazy DC wedding prices. Enter Ruth, who is a consummate professional with experience in making things happen --- even when, like us, you pick a non-traditional, unmanned wedding venue. From accommodating some of our quirkier asks ("Korean barbecue flavored chicken skewers!" "mini-corn-on-the-cob!" "homemade boursin!") to coming up with great recommendations on floor plans, providing linens, cutlery, and even our venue's weird requirement for opaque cups, Ruth took everything in stride and made sure our day went off without a hitch, working seamlessly with our day-of coordinator and DJ to make sure that in just two hours everything was set-up and good to go. She and her staff were even ready to go above and beyond to pack up all t... Read more

  • We used Teatime Catering for our December wedding at St. Francis Hall. Ruth was such a pleasure to work with. She was so responsive via email (sometimes within minutes!) and gave us so many helpful tips as we were planning. She's a regular at our wedding venue which gave us peace of mind. On the day of, her staff were courteous and professional and we received so many complements on both the food and service. The mac & cheese appetizers we devised with Ruth were especially a big hit. Thank you Ruth!!

  • Finding the right caterer was probably the hardest task of our wedding given that we needed to find someone reasonably priced on relatively short notice for a June wedding and who could accommodate an all pescetarian/vegetarian wedding with gluten-free, soy-free, and dairy-free options. When we found Ruth, it was like a dream come true. Not only are her prices excellent, but she made a menu tailored just to us with breadcrumb encrusted tofu as one option and salmon in a dairy-free cream sauce as the other main option. She offered us appetizers that reflected our Baltimore and Charleston backgrounds like crab cakes, shrimp and grits, and pimento cheese alongside gluten free crackers and cucumber hors d'oeuvres. And when we told her that my fiance proposed using a plum seed that he'd saved from the picnic we had on our first date, she made sure there were plenty of plums in the fruit display and created a beautiful and incredibly delicious cake decorated with plums and drizzled with a pl...

  • Working with Ruth and her team at Teatime catering was one of the best decisions I made during our wedding planning. I wanted a caterer that had good food but more than that, I wanted someone who I could trust to handle things if something went wrong. Having competent people working on an event like a wedding is so important. Ruth was the best, from my first meeting with her I knew that she was someone who would handle any problem with calm and ease. That being said, NOTHING WENT WRONG at our wedding! Or at least I (the bride) didn't know it if it did. The food was great, we went with a carving station at the end of our buffet and it was a huge hit! The cake was excellent as well and very pretty. Ruth's staff was great. Ruth is also very responsive to emails and very efficient with your time. I can't recommend her enough! Hire Ruth and her team to make your special day smooth and tasty!

  • Ruth was wonderful to work with. We had a couple of things in mind for our menu, and she worked with us to make those things happen (and they were DELISH!). Ruth did a walk-through of our venue with us and helped with figuring out where everything would go, and had some good insights. The day of the wait staff was good at making sure my husband and I got to enjoy the food we ordered, and all things food and drink related went smoothly. Over all, our experience was great.

  • Ruth and her staff were absolutely wonderful! We had a very short deadline and limited budget, and Ruth went above and beyond to pull everything together for us! She is flexible enough to accommodate suggested recipes, and enjoys both traditional and unique options. The taste test was wonderful, and the bonus of dessert being included was a huge seller for us. Ruth was easy to coordinate with, the service was beyond fantastic, and all of our guests raved about the food. The cost was beyond affordable, and the menus are entirely custom. Would happily seek her out again for any catering needs!

  • Ruth was wonderful - very responsive to my emails and questions. The food was sooooo good and the staff was very professional and helped us set up and take down. They also smiled a lot and were very inviting as they served the food at the table and just walking around to guests. I highly recommend them!

  • Working with Ruth and her team was fantastic. She was very responsive and very accommodating! We were going for a little more of a casual dinner for our wedding and Ruth was able to achieve that while still making it feel like a wedding and not just a normal buffet. She even helped out with some logistical items. The food is fantastic, baked goods are even better (I'm a dessert before dinner kind of gal), and the price is super reasonable. So glad we went with Catering by Teatime.

  • Ruth MacBean is a wedding lifesaver. We cannot rave enough about the professionalism, quality, and value provided by Teatime staff. Throughout our wedding planning process, Ruth was a critical asset. Her company was a preferred vendor of our venue and it was so easy to see why. Ruth knows the wedding industry, and venues, like the back of her hand. Ruth was responsive to any and all questions and went above and beyond what we expected of a catering company to make our day perfect. Ruth was able to save us from many potential miscommunications with the venue since she knew it and its players so well. Ruth also was able to help us streamline our rentals by adding them into the order she was placing for basic catering needs (for example, we had to rent outdoor chairs for our ceremony as well as some tables for outdoor use, which Ruth graciously placed in addition to/with the same company she uses for cutlery/glassware/china). Her pricing was beyond reasonable and the food was out of this ... Read more

    Thank you Kate for the lovely review! Indeed your wedding reception was simply spectacular. The creative color palate of greys and rose made such a stunning impact in the dining room at St. Francis. I wasn't sure the weather gods were going to cooperate that afternoon, but it all came together and we were able to not only do the outside ceremony, but the outside cocktail hour as well. It was one of my favorite weddings of 2018. Ruth

  • So glad we chose Ruth and the rest of the staff at Teatime to do the catering for our wedding at Mt. Defiance Cidery in Middleburg. The food itself was delicious...we got so many compliments on the night and afterwards. Amazing appetizers, buffet (omg the salmon!!!), desserts (cookies and cupcakes galore!) and even a special late night snack. But even beyond the food, Ruth was just wonderful to work with from the very start. My husband and I live out of the country and Ruth had no problem staying in touch with us every step of the way, answering all our questions and allowing my mom and sister to do the tasting in our place! She’s super knowledgable and just exudes experience, not just about catering but wedding logistics more generally. The day of the event her team arrived early, prepared quickly, and everything just went really smoothly. Highly recommend Ruth and her team for any of your future events!

    This was such a cool venue! We have catered many wineries over the years, but this was the first Cidery, and the staff owners couldn't have been more helpful. The magic of the internet certainly helps tie all the hundreds of details that go into planning a wedding reception, especially when you are out of the country. I am delighted it all came together so beautifully, Ruth

  • We had an outdoor wedding at Brookside Gardens and wanted an informal, tea time atmosphere. We had a great experience! The food was lovely, delicious and ample... they even packed us up leftover sandwiches that we took on our mini-honeymoon :-) The staff was so pleasant and helpful, and overall just terrific. The presentation was so pretty too, it fit in with the beautiful gardens.
