  • We just used Classic for our wedding at Peabody Library- they were amazing! All of our guests have raved about the food - from the grilled cheese and tomato soup apps to the steak being perfectly cooked. Lynn was so helpful through the entire process, and went above and beyond to make sure everything turned out as planned!

  • One of the most important parts of your wedding and (most expensive) is your catering. This is one of the reasons why choosing the right caterer is so important. The process of catering and deciding who to cater your wedding can be daunting, especially when you think of how hungry your guests are by the end of the evening. Classic Catering was, by far, a great company to work with. Lynn Piette of Classic Catering not only helped us coordinate a classy event but throughout the process of planning the wedding, she took on the role of caring mother and event planner especially since my own mother lived miles away (like mom did) and could not help with some of minor details and having never married off another child, didn’t know all there was to think about. Lynn heard exactly what our likes were, what dishes we really wanted to include and how we wanted to incorporate our diverse, Indian, Armenian, and Scottish background into event meals that were delish! The hors derves during ... Read more

  • I can't recommend Lynn Piette and Classic Catering enough. Lynn was by my side throughout the entire wedding planning process. I almost felt like she was my own personal planner! No question from me was ever "outside of her job". She has so much experience in this field and was able to offer helpful recommendations on lighting, florals, linens, etiquette, and the list goes on and on. Lynn was really flexible and worked with us on what really mattered to us- the bar, the service, and those special touches that help make a wedding experience a memorable one. I wanted fresh squeezed orange juice and sugar cane sticks for our bar selection, and Lynn made it happen. We wanted our table settings set up in a very particular way (using our floral stems, menus, etc.), and Lynn made sure her team came through. The food was amazing, the venue was set up how we discussed, and the Classic Catering team made sure we stayed on schedule without seeming pushy or inconsiderate of those special moments t...

  • Bobby at Classic was great to work with. He accommodated all our requests and helped us put a great menu together. Our guests raved about the apps, dinner and desserts. It was a great experience and I would highly recommend Classic for any event. It will be done with class and professionalism.

  • For our wedding at The George Peabody Library in Baltimore, MD, the team at The Classic Catering People went ABOVE and BEYOND to exceed all of our expectations. Not only was the food absolutely delicious (we recommend the short ribs!), but the service was magnificent. Our account executive, Lynn Piette was extremely organized and displayed true attention to the details. Empty glasses and dirty plates simply did not exist at our wedding. Moreover, there was never a line at the bar-- due to the swift service that Classic provided. We highly recommend for ANY event that you may have.

  • David from Classic Catering took care of us from Day 1 once we had booked at the George Peabody Library. We were able to have a tasting with David a few months out from the wedding. He sent us a menu in advance with so many delicious options we had a hard time picking the ones we wanted as choices! We wanted to have food that was local to the region and David respected that and took special care to bring that to our menu. I still have guests messaging me about the bacon wrapped scallops! Guests were so pleased they were able to try all 6 hors d'oeuvres during the cocktail hour. The waiters worked in pairs where one person carried the tray and another person followed quickly behind to take napkins or toothpicks from guests hands. The open bar had a great selection and guests never worried about an empty glass. David made sure that one waiter was assigned to my husband and I for the entire night. We had a special plate of all the pickings we could want and they knew our favorite drink to... Read more

  • Classic Catering was one of 3 caterers that we could chose from for our venue (George Peabody Library). We couldn't have been happier with how things turned out. Lynn Piette, our contact, has been doing weddings at the George Peabody Library for years so she is very familiar with the venue and all of their rules which was very helpful. When we went in for our first meeting Lynn had lunch ready for us as a way for us to have a preview of their food & we were able to take home any of the leftovers that we wished to take. The tasting was just as good. My dad & stepmother who went with us also could not stop raving about the food. The day of food was absolutely amazing (people are still telling me how wonderful it was) and the service was excellent. My husband & I had an assigned server who made sure we had all the food & drinks we wanted all night. Lynn was always very quick to respond to my emails (obviously they are busy on weekends as that is when they work most but even then I had... Read more

  • My wife and I used the Classic Catering People for our wedding and it was the best decision we made besides saying "I Do" to each other! Lynn Piette was our account executive and she made everything easy! Lynn was very responsive and accessible and helped us with the following: Vendor Selection, Timeline, Food and Beverages, Decorations, and Rehearsal. Lynn was very patient with us and helped us understand everything that was involved with the wedding planning experience. Our wedding was beautiful, elegant, and everything we could have asked for! We highly recommend Lynn and the Classic Catering People to any engaged couple!

  • Classic Catering is top notch from start to finish!! If you have a wedding in MD and have the option to use them, you HAVE TO. They are worth every penny and go above and beyond in every aspect of the wedding. They take pride in their work, train their staff to a T, and I cannot forget to mention their food is amaaazing. Even my father-in-law who thinks everyone who has a wedding, overpays, admitted that this was 100% worth it! We received so many compliments about the cocktail hour and dinner items. Not only was the food great, but the bar and table service was on-point. My friends said that during our many speeches, the servers would continue to fill up wine glasses so no one was thirsty or bored :-) I worked with David throughout the process and he was an absolute delight. He was quick to respond to any questions, was very helpful in deciding on details, and he even put on my veil (which I had forgotten on another floor) before I walked down the aisle! What I noted the most is th... Read more

  • I honestly don't know where to begin! Lynn and her team at The Classic Catering People were beyond fantastic! From our first initial meeting, I had no doubt that CCP was going to be my top choice for catering. Lynn and her team made us feel welcome from the moment we walked through the door. She listened to every thought, plan and idea we had and was somehow able to incorporate all of our requests! I thought this was impossible since by father is very picky about food. Through the entire planning process and up until a month out from the wedding, Lynn was able to accommodate every last minute change, which was amazing! She even was able to provide us with suggestions and feedback based on her experience with past weddings. I have heard nothing but great things from my other vendors as well. They said that every single Classic Catering Employee was easy and delightful to work with! Now the food, OH MY GOSH, amazing! From the appetizers, to the main course and even the dessert! Everyth...

  • We used Classic Catering for our sons wedding at the Lord Baltimore Hotel in Baltimore. It was perfect!! Our primary contact was David Atkinson who worked with Larry Frank, and they bent over backwards to give us just what we asked for. It was a pleasure from the Tasting through the coordination of events until the Big day - no hitches! The food was delicious, the cocktail hour was fantastic - where the food just kept coming, and the alcohol never ran out- If you had any special requests they did whatever we requested. Great staff to help make the entire evening just go way too fast. And the wedding cake they provided was AMAZING! I would so recommend using Classic Catering for your wedding, or any other events you have - even classic to go. I cannot thank them enough for they part in making our wedding so very special!!

  • Classic Catering People was Amazing! Lynn Piette and her team were great from start to finish. They welcomed us and created a great experience for our tasting. Lynn helped organize and coordinate everything from the table settings and decorations to the other vendors. Finally, the food was superb! We had multiple guests tell us that the food was the best they've ever had at a wedding. We would recommend Classic and Lynn to anyone else who is trying to decide on a caterer for your wedding, especially if you are planning a wedding at the Peabody Library. Of the 3 preferred vendors, Classic came the most highly recommended and was very responsive and friendly.

  • Six months after our wedding people are still commenting on the quality of the food delivered by Classic Catering for our special day. From the sumptuous appetizers to the tasty main dishes, Classic's food was the stuff of an epicurean dream. For the cocktail hour, we got to enjoy a selection of tandoori lamb, Korean BBQ sliders, mac and cheese cups, spanakopita as well as mini crab cakes. (Get the tandoori lamb, you'll thank us.) For our main dishes, we had the chicken, the salmon and a puff pastry mushroom dish for our vegetarian guests. Before clearing the plates for our cake and to sustain the dancers on the dance floor, Classic provided everyone with milk and cookies. People had a lot of fun with that in between songs. The difference between a good vendor and great vendor is people. The human factor, the character and the quality of the people whom you are paying for services rendered. We planned the entirety of our wedding without a wedding planner, and Lynn from Classic, wit... Read more

  • We worked with Kelly at Classic for our wedding and it was an absolute pleasure! She helped us to plan a fun and creative menu of stations that was exactly what we wanted! Our friends and family are still telling us that it was the best wedding food they've ever had! Kelly is incredibly friendly and easy to work with - she's very responsive and quick with both fun and practical suggestions and advice. Her staff were also wonderful! They made sure that my husband and I and our parents had the opportunity to try all the appetizers - they brought us out a special tray while we were taking photos. They also made sure that we ate during dinner and they we always had a drink if we wanted one. They were the best!! I can't recommend Classic enough!

  • We were hoping to bring food from our restaurant of choice but the Peabody allows only 3 caterers. It was a bummer to find that out but I reached out to all three. Classic Catering responded quickly and enthusiastically to our request for middle eastern/Afghan cuisine. Chef John went out of his way to do a tasting for us based on some recipes Id shared with him. Not only was Classic Catering accommodating but the chef was genuinely excited to create a new menu for us. Larry was a pleasure to work with. He was upfront and honest about everything. Ill always remember him saying to me: It’s my job to say “Yes” to your requests, we will almost never say “no”. He and his team came through on that promise. Lynn was my point of contact throughout. She’s confident and has the answers to all your questions—and not just questions about food and beverage. I was asking her about all sorts of things: Should I do a basket for the bathrooms? do these linens clash with my cocktail tab... Read more
