  • We had a phenomenal experience with Perfect Pear. They were super responsive and adapted to every single one of our requests. We loved that they wanted to walk through the venue before the big day to make sure they had a good lay of the land, and I seriously cannot think of a single criticism. The food was incredible and the perfect temperature, and the setup was even nicer than I ever expected. We got so many compliments about how good the food was. Every interaction we had with their staff was super positive, and we were so happy everything went so smoothly. The next time we have a catered event, we'll be hiring Perfect Pear again. We loved every single thing we ate, their friendliness toward us and our guests, and the totally stress-free process of working with them every step of the way!

  • Perfect Pear did an amazing job! Not only were we able to taste all the food at our wedding in full! But, we got 8 boxes of left overs to take home with us! EVERYONE at the wedding was happy with the food, from the kids to the adults, everyone was going back for seconds and the food has so much flavor and was presented so well! The staff was on it! They made sure we had everything we needed as the bride and groom, to making sure all our guests got everything they needed, serving drinks, they also came and found us before our send off and thanked us/presented us with a cookbook! We were blown away, couldn’t not have picked a better caterer!

  • Although we didn't have much time to sit down and eat at our wedding, The Perfect Pear team was essential in bringing us food as we were entertaining the guests! The food was absolutely fantastic and everyone just raved about the braised beef short rib and salmon. If you haven't tried shrimp and grit fritters, you MUST get them from The Perfect Pear!! We had an outdoor wedding, which in my mind I thought the food would be a disaster (because Florida and it was the coldest day of the year so far). But, I was so wrong. The team moved effortlessly through the space and it was almost like the just blended right in. We never even had a worry about the buffet table because everything was so well managed. 10/10 would use them to cater a future party and want all of our friends to use them in the future

  • Perfect Pear catered my wedding reception of 65 people. From the start, Leni was so open and flexible with me. She allowed me to interchange certain items on her menu, handled my guest's food allergies and even incorporated a veggie burger slider in the 'Slider Station' upon my request. Leni and her entire crew were so professional the entire night! I didn't have to second guess what was happening for a minute, literally a bride's dream come true. Also, HUGE shoutout to Jeremy. Unfortunately, the bartender I hired did not show up and Jeremy handled it until we found a replacement. He checked in on the groom and I frequently to see if we needed anything, food or drink. Everyone at my wedding was floored by how amazing my catering company was and I can't say thank you enough to all of you! Would ABSOLUTELY hire them again!!

  • The Perfect Pear went above and beyond to make our wedding perfect. Working in abnormal conditions, split between extreme heat and an atypical house setup, the team was hospitable, supportive, and, of course, the food was delicious! They did so many personal things to make our day special that I can't even begin to list them all in one review. Just book them - you'll thank yourself later.

    Liam, It was our pleasure to be part of your special day. Your family and friends were amazing. You Made The Perfect Pear feel like we were part of your family. Congratulations and Thank you for allowing us to celebrate your marriage.

  • The team at the Perfect Pear was wonderful. They answered all of our questions leading up to the wedding and went above and beyond to help us determine how much and what kind of food we would need, as well as plenty of other details we never would have thought of without their help. They had worked with our venue previously and so were very helpful in working out logistics and complying with the venue's rules. We did not worry at all on the day of the wedding, because we knew the Perfect Pear team would take care of everything we discussed, and they did! I would highly recommend them for your catering needs.

  • I happened upon The Perfect Pear in a google search while I was planning my youngest daughters wedding. This was my first experience planning a wedding, so I was understandably nervous. Verousce was AMAZING! She immediately calmed me down and helped me plan an affair my daughter will always remember. We knew we wanted something simple, classic and southern. She encouraged me to look at her Southern Station Menu. The menu consisted of three manned food stations, each offering a different style food. We had shrimp and grits, chicken and waffles and coco-cola brisket with macaroni and cheese. Because the stations were separate there was never a line! People chose the station that appealed most to them. She also designed a cocktail hour menu that reflected the style we were looking at. We had three passed hor d'oeuvres (fried green tomatoes with pimento cheese, buffalo chicken skewers with bleu cheese sauce and pulled pork slider biscuit with peach salsa). We also had a mini-gr...

  • Verousce and her team were hands-down our easiest vendor. Verousce provided easy to understand proposals, made changes in a timely manner, and was on point with communications. She created a spectacular menu for our brunch wedding that we were happy to eat over and over again for the next week from the leftovers. Verousce was so easy to work with and so flexible, we can't recommend her enough.

  • Seriously, just stop now. You've found the best caterer. The food was amazing, the service top-notch, and every step of the way Verousce was friendly, professional, and helpful. All of our guests raved about the food, which included appetizers (do not miss out on the honey-sriracha mac n cheese bites!), 3 different entrees (2 vegetarian), salad (yum!), and 4 small desserts, in addition to wedding cake. This was the most stress-free part of the wedding planning and of the day itself.

  • Unfortunately, the dinner from Perfect Pear was the only thing that wasn’t perfect about my daughter’s wedding. We booked them several months in advance, attended a tasting, which was very good, and had them present at the walk-through of the venue to ensure that they knew what they were working with. We opted for an upscale, plated dinner of filet and mahi, which was quite an upcharge. To my complete embarrassment every one of our 120 dinners was served to the guests completely cold. When I took my first bite, I looked around and was mortified. My husband and I checked with a few other tables to find their food cold as well. It was dried out like it had been sitting around. My husband and I relayed our dissatisfaction with the chef/owner twice. The only reply we received was that the food was hot when it left the kitchen. Fortunately, our venue had cameras capturing the entire plating process which showed all 120 meals being plated outside, uncovered, and unheated. The firs... Read more

  • My husband and I are foodies, so we wanted awesome food...but that wouldn't break the bank. The Perfect Pear came up in my searches and was referred to me by other vendors. When we did our tasting, the staff wasn't particularly warm, but do you need that in a caterer? The appetizers (including a steak and cherry crostini) blew us out of the water. Sold! We tried the steak and fish - and dare I say, the Parmesan Crusted Fish was the best fish I'd ever eaten. We weren't impressed with the desserts - everything tasted flat - and wanted people to eat cake anyway. They were great with us changing items throughout the planning process and offered to help with rentals/delivery. When I emailed them to confirm my count/get a final invoice, I didn't hear back from them for some time. Finally I asked my wedding planner to reach out - they had never received my email, which I found odd, since we had been communicating via email previously. Day of, they graciously saved my husband and I some appeti... Read more

  • Verousce at the Perfect Pear was the perfect choice for our Amelia Island wedding! The food was amazing and affordable, with beautiful presentation! We used her stations menu for southern comfort food with an upscale flair. We got so many compliments on the food from our guests and our cake and other desserts were beautiful and delicious. We had one small mixup with a special meal request but Verousce did everything in her power to rectify this, even calling the nearby resort to purchase the special meal directly from them. Highly recommend!
