  • We were so lucky to have found Ultimate Caterers! Because of COVID-19, we made the decision to cancel with our original wedding venue and hold a more intimate ceremony/reception in our backyard, leaving us to have to search for a caterer a little less than two months out from our date. We came across Ultimate Caterers and after looking at their menu and services, we opted to hire them for our special day. Not only do they offer an extensive menu and bar package, but they also provided tent/table rentals complete with staffing for the day of. The whole team was very professional and so helpful throughout the whole process. And the food was DELICIOUS! From the appetizers to the buffet dinner and multitude of desserts, our guests are still talking about how good everything was! Alan and the team made sure my husband and I did not miss out on any of the food during cocktail hour while we were taking pictures, and later were there on the dance floor passing around an array of desserts to al...

  • When we had to come up with a plan B for our daughter's wedding on 9/19 due to Covid Alan Perl was a God send especially since we only had a month and a half to plan a backyard wedding for 70! He was recommended by our wedding planner. I did not have time to interview other caterers or even taste his food. The food and service were excellent. We loved the baby lamb chop appetizer which he served in a vintage briefcase! Alan coordinated all of the tent, table, chair, porto potty rentals. His insight in how to layout the tents/tables to maximize the small space was priceless. Everyone raved about the food and service!

  • Ed was great! They food was really good and they were super flexible during the pandemic situation. All of the servers were very nice and professional. Just make sure to underestimate how many guests you will have because once you tell them a number you cannot change it even if they tell you that you can!

  • Ultimate Caterer catered my wedding and they were simply phenomenal. The attention to detail and attentiveness to the guests was top-notch. A lot of mishaps happen at weddings, but with Ultimate Caterer you at least have the food COMPLETELY COVERED. My husband and I worked closely with Alan leading up to the wedding day to plan our menu. We also attended one of Ultimate Caterer's tasting events at the James Ward Mansion (which I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you doing as well). Alan and his team were very accommodating to our guests needs- gluten free, vegetarian options were readily available and accessible. They even created a side wedding cake for our gluten free guests. If you're like me and feared having an event where the guests secretly hated the food and/or didn't have enough to eat- you can trust Ultimate Caterer. Everyone I spoke to during and after the wedding raved about the food. I remember one guest said, "The food just kept coming!" So you have an accessible reference to... Read more

  • Alan was so helpful and proactive throughout our entire time working with him. It was fantastic not to have to chase him when I needed answers or had questions. We used Ultimate as catering for our wedding. The food was station style, which I was previously not excited by. But the food was FAR beyond my expectations and the staff did an excellent job of serving everyone quickly. If Ultimate could blow me away with station style, I am sure they can nail any catering needs. Alan also made sure I had a drink in my hand throughout the night!

  • Alan was so responsive and awesome! He put me at ease right away. The wedding was better than I could’ve imagined and the food was excellent. Everyone complimented us on the wedding, the service, and the food. They were so attentive to us and always made sure the bride and groom were happier than happy.

  • I got in contact with Alan from Ultimate early in the wedding planning process and had only decided not to use him when we chose a venue with its own in-house caterer. 3 weeks before my wedding, our venue told us we had to find a new outside caterer, and Alan and Ed and their team stepped up and did an amazing job catering our wedding at the last minute. People really loved the food; we went with the endless cocktail party option, and there was food consistently being passed around throughout the reception. They provide great value and really did a great job on our wedding.

  • From the minute we had our first phone call with Alan to the end of our wedding, we had the best experience with Ultimate Caterers. They were extremely accommodating and creative and helped us plan a menu that would truly be memorable for our guests. To this day I still get rave reviews about the variety of stations at the cocktail hour, the quality of the steak at our dinner, and the fun after party foods like pretzels and chicken fingers! Alan was also able to create the cake of our dreams. Throughout the night he would come over to us and ask whether we needed a cocktail or whether we needed more food or anything else! He truly made the night seamless and he was an absolute pleasure to work with. Wish we could do it all over again!

  • My wedding venue dropped the ball and told me TWO WEEKS before my wedding that the in-house chef was no longer with them. I was sent a list of 3 different caterers, Ultimate Caterers being one of them. I called them all and no one put my manic-stress at ease quite like Alan and his team. My guests are still talking about the food 2 months later. My dad even put them in his speech, thanking them for executing such an amazing menu and service when they only had 2 weeks to prepare. I cannot praise them enough.

  • I wish we could give 6 stars, honestly. Alan & team were an absolute dream to work with from beginning to end. If you are getting married at the Art Factory in Paterson, NJ - there's really no one else who can do it like Ultimate Caterers. Their station set-up, food design, and service all match PERFECTLY with the vibe of venue. To give an example, our cheese, cracker & crudite station were draped with giant wooden picture frames and beautiful flowers & greenery. The team worked with us to put together an endless list of hor d'oeuvres/tapas style bites that went around the entire night. Highlights were the Romanian Meatballs, Chicken Satay, Sesame Noodles, Peter Luger Sliders, & the sushi were all really great (didn't eat a ton, as we were too busy dancing)! Most important thing to note, is that we had to switch caterers less than 3 weeks before the event, due to some unforeseen circumstances. Alan & team picked things right up, improved on everything we already had planned, and execut... Read more

  • We got married last weekend (8/3/19), and one of the best decisions we made was to work with Alan Perl and his team at Ultimate Caterer. From the moment we initially emailed him to inquire about his availability, he responded to us with lightning speed and uncommon enthusiasm. Alan invited us to a tasting at our wedding venue, which gave us a preview of eating his inventive food on our big day. We made last minute guest list changes, and Alan was exceedingly accommodating. At our wedding, I was amazed that every time I turned around, Alan was right there offering me something to eat or drink. He was attentive, omnipresent, and so excited for us. A true expert. Alan provided a variety of unique and delicious food (be sure to request his poke bowl station and beautiful, rich cupcake cake) to our friends and families who had been anticipating our wedding for over ten years. We felt completely taken care of from the minute we met him and can't wait for the occasion to work together again.

  • Alan, you are your team are undeniably amazing. Your attention to detail coupled with your expertise and passion, made it an absolute joy and pleasure to work with you. I can honestly say, because of your ease and reassurance, I was truly was a stress free bride. Now on to the food, OMG, let’s see, delicious, mouth watering, scrumptious, unbelievable and yes I could go on and on and on. Now it’s one thing to have amazing food, and its another when the presentation of the food takes it too another level. My husband and I opted for the never ending cocktail hours for our reception, this included hours of passed Hors d'oeuvre. Our family and friends are not only saying it was the best wedding they had ever been too, but it was also some of the best food they have ever had. If you want amazing service with equally amazing food, Alan and his team are the choice to make. Alan, my husband and I cannot thank you and your entire team for the best day of our lives. You are the best!!!

  • Ultimate Caterer was a preferred partner of our wedding venue. From our first meeting, I was put off by the fact that the caterer found it appropriate to put his hand out in front of my face and tell me he would be “doing the driving”. Upsetting, but with a contract binding I was hopeful that the day would go off without a hitch. Weeks before the wedding we had informed the caterer of some requests and points of interest regarding displays and presentations to compliment our vision of the day. It was as if the requests were blatantly ignored, food came out in boxes and suitcases (I simply wanted elegant trays passed) and empty picture frames throughout the displays. Artistic flair aside, as a bride and groom you want to feel that your requests are accepted and honored. But we did receive a prompt email regarding tips and gratuities. Our issues with the execution was what we had no direct control of. Catering is a paid service, I would expect more hospitality instead of lacking cu... Read more
