  • I cannot say enough great things about CBTF and how incredible the food/rental services were for my wedding. Hands down one of the best vendors I had the pleasure of working with. Right from the start, we met with Rachel who sat down with us and provided samples of their food along with a set up of table/place settings. From that meeting up until our wedding, Rachel was always easily accessible by phone, text, or email to answer all of our questions and continuously improvise our quotes as my mind was always changing! She gave amazing suggestions and recommendations on how to make sure our day flowed as smoothly as possible and that our guests would be kept happy throughout the entire wedding. When people make comments that wedding food is never good... this is a complete myth when it comes to CBTF. I had been told by people prior to our wedding who had had food by CBTF just how amazing it was. My guests left my wedding RAVING about how incredible the food tasted. I have never been so...

  • Okay, Rachel was amazing! I think I even called her one time at like 7:30am with a question not realizing the time and she answered and was happy to help even though she did not have to at that time. I was not able to do the trial being so far away, and she made sure my parents and fiancés parents felt comfortable and confident in their food and service. The first time I tried their food was at my wedding and I made sure to scarf it all down because it was delicious. We even made the tail end of cocktail hour but didn’t get any apps but they made us a special tray that was sitting at our head table. That little detail meant so much to us. My mom insisted on making her Honduran specialty for cocktail hour and they were glad to pass them around along with theirs. They also did the cake cutting for us which allowed us to enjoy as much of the reception as possible. 10/10 recommend.

  • Catered by the family treats you like family. We felt like they listened to our plans and ideas from the moment we started talking with them. The food was excellent and so was the service, not just day of but leading up to the day too! They were reliable and communicative through the whole process. Highly recommend!!

  • Booking Catering By The Family was easily the best decision that we made for our wedding Rachel, Steve and all of their staff made everything run smoothly and the food was delicious. They also made our signature cocktail drinks which was my family sangria recipe and in old fashion and they were by far the most popular drinks all night. They were so easy to work with and helped with all of our Covid modifications and I highly recommend them for a wedding or party of any size!!

  • As MOB I cannot say enough about Catering by the Family! From the moment we met Rachel we knew we were in good hands for the wedding. She is professional, attentive and delightful to work with! Our tasting was delicious and the presentation was beautiful. We had no idea how amazing everything would be for the big day! From signature cocktails, amazing appetizers (the Cuban cigars are a must) and the most delectable dinner the CBTF didn’t miss a detail! Our guests are still saying “the food at Mallory & Trevors is the the BEST food they’ve ever had at a wedding”. I have to agree, the food was hot, delicious and tasty! Thank you for making the wedding flawless...Rachel and CBTF you’re the best!

  • I used Catering by the Family for both my bridal shower and rehearsal dinner. I was trying to find a caterer for my bridal shower and remembered one of my close friends telling me that they just had their tasting for their wedding and how amazing the food was. Because of her recommendation I wasted no time going online to look at all their menu options. For my shower I decided to do an assortment of appetizers and they were all amazing! Everyone loved the food. When it came time figure out food for our rehearsal dinner, I knew I had to order from Catering by the Family again. They did not disappoint! I also attended my friends wedding who used them for her wedding and their pasta bar was to die for!! I would definitely hire them again for future parties or events!!

  • I highly recommend Catering by the Family for food, bar, and rental services! Going into the planning process, I was considering hiring separate vendors for food, alcohol, and rentals just to try to save some money. As soon as we met with Rachel with CBTF, I knew we needed to use them for everything! They are basically a one-stop-shop for most of your wedding day essentials! We used them for all of our food, bar service, tables, linens, china, and flatware. They have a huge selection to choose from and I adored the gold bamboo flatware we chose. The food was absolutely delicious and our guests raved about it all night. Rachel was very responsive and helpful throughout the entire planning process. She went above and beyond to make sure everything was taken care of and we are very appreciative! :)

  • We hired Catering by the Family for our December wedding last month, and it was worth every penny! We worked closely with Rachel Cloke (the BEST) leading up to our special day, who went out of her way to help us solidify our menu and make sure we had the best dining experience for our guests. She was so patient (I emailed back and forth with her quite a bit) and always treated us like family when we met in person. I highly recommend Catering by the Family for your event needs. They go above and beyond to serve you with amazing excellence. When we went around to ask our guests if they were enjoying the food, we received many compliments! My only regret was not being able to eat the food myself (I was too caught up with socializing, haha).

  • Catering by the Family food the most incredible job at our brunch wedding. So many guests said it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding. Sandy was so easy to work with and made the entire process perfect. We'd hire them again anytime!

  • Catering by the Family went above and beyond for us on our wedding day! We sat down many times with the owner Steve and his assistant Rachel and they truly treated us like family! We could sit and talk with them for hours! The food was very impressive and we tasted many different caterers and nothing compared. Our guests were raving about the food at our wedding. Steve had many different weddings to cater on 11/2/19 but he made us feel so special when he showed up to our reception (which was about an hour away) to make sure everything was going perfect for us just like we had planned. Like I said, they really do make you feel like family and we 100 percent recommend this company!

  • We had such an amazing experience with CBTF from the moment we contacted them till moments well after our wedding. This company is nothing short of exceptional and truly does provide a family experience for their clients. My husband and I worked with Rachel Cloke, from Sales and she was, without a doubt, the best person we worked with throughout our entire planning process. She was so responsive and helpful and did everything she could to make sure we were getting the best experience. We honestly cant thank her enough for not only making us feel like special clients, but like family. The rest of the staff were also wonderful. Even on the day of our wedding, we had staff members coming up to us to make sure we were being well taken care of. Helena, the event manager, was such a warm presence to have around on such a hectic day. Apart from the service, the food was so delicious! We had guests coming up to us raving about the Pad Thai and how good it was. It was so good, my husband an... Read more

  • We were required by our venue to use Catering by the Family and it made sense based on the service and food they provided! Sandy was great to work with and very helpful starting with our tasting to working with our budget, modifying the bar and more. The food was delicious and all of the staff were friendly and efficient. Catering by the Family is a great catering company; highly recommend!

  • A great experience and very tasty! The only issues was that one of our food items was not switched to what we had chosen (but what we ended up with was still good!!)
