  • Wow! That was the word that was uttered since my husband and I's tasting with Windows back on October 3, 2019. Julie and Nicole were PHENOMENAL to work with. Nicole truly cares and loves what she does and it totally shows! From the first introduction to the wedding day, she was always there to lend an opinion or to make sure that all items we asked were addressed and changed. She had soooo many wonderful suggestions to help make our wedding day food and look unique from putting a salad in a cocktail glass to a pretzel wall with boxes and take home sauces. The food tasted amazing and while I am sad I did not get to partake in enjoying the desserts, all of our guests told us that they had many helpings! The food that I did consume was absolutely devine! I also used Windows for my engagement party and they were spectacular then as well! I will continue to use Windows for any of my events from here on out!

  • We ended up meeting with two catering companies, Windows and Occasions, and decided that Windows gave us the best food at the tasting. We were not disappointed at the wedding. They were phenomenal in delivering the food that was promised at the tasting. All the wedding guests kept talking about the food and how delicious it was. I plan on asking them for their recipe for the whipped cauliflower... so good! Nicole was our manager and she was a pleasure to work with. After the ceremony, my new hubby and I were greeted in the bridal holding room with our champagne and the an assortment of all the appetizers being served at the cocktail hour so we could have a chance to eat before joining our guests. They really catered to our needs for the wedding and I couldn't have asked for better food!

  • Windows is amazing - they made our at-home wedding feel like an incredible venue! The decor, the presentation, and the food itself was a highlight of the entire wedding - our guests are still talking about it months after the wedding!! Apps were fantastic and creative (mini lobster rolls with mini beers, bite sized spaghetti and meatballs, etc) first course was a gorgeous seafood ecosystem that looked like a piece of art, and mains and desserts were amazing (also added a smores bar at the last minute which was delicious and made for really cute pictures!). THe Windows team was hands on for the entire planning and event to make sure everything ran perfectly. HIGHLY recommend Windows!!!

  • Carl from Windows Catering was amazing to work with! I have worked with Windows Catering several times for work events, and was so thrilled to see them on the "preferred vendor" list from our Wedding Venue. My husband and I had to change our Wedding date to the pandemic. Carl was understanding, flexible and beyond accommodating. Carl and his team even packed to-go containers for us on the night of our Wedding to ensure that we were able to enjoy the amazing food! We have already received messages from our family and friends raving about the food! If you are looking for delicious food and amazing customer service, Windows is your go-to catering company!

  • Wow, when I say working with a Windows was one of the best and easiest experiences of our wedding I am not kidding. From the moment we reached out to Windows, Chris Dunn was so incredibly responsive and amazing to work with. Every single idea or suggestion that we had was taken perfectly in stride!! From the first tasting there was absolutely no competition that could come close to Windows! The entire experience was just so first class and the food was literally to die for. Hands down Windows provided us with the BEST wedding food and we still have guests saying it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding. Everyone is still talking about the mushroom risotto and late night snacks!! Windows also provided us with the most stunning (and delicious) cake. Every email I sent to Chris was responded to (literally) within 5 minutes, even if it was at 10pm. Working with Windows honestly was just so incredible and we couldn’t have asked for a better team, food or experience!! Windows w... Read more

  • The Windows Catering team was absolutely amazing. They put together a fantastic menu proposal and allowed a full menu tasting before we signed the contract. The food was delicious. They were extremely responsive and detail oriented and delivered on everything we wanted. We provided a picture of the wedding cake design we wanted and they made an exact replica. The table setting last were beautiful and the staff the day of the wedding were all professional and went above and beyond. The vanilla almond cake was our favorite cake we’ve ever had. The guests raves about the food. Overall the day couldn’t have been more perfect.

  • We are so pleased that we hired Windows Catering for our wedding. It was clear from the beginning that this a highly experienced catering company with an excellent team. Debbie took the time to understand what we were hoping for in our menu and the look of our tables. Based on our conversations, she design a fantastic menu for our cocktail hour and our dinner reception. Numerous guests commented on how delicious everything was, including our cake (which was beautiful!). Our place settings and table linens were perfect and the entire staff the night of was top notch. Everything came together exactly as we hoped it would, and we couldn't be happier with our choice!

  • I would highly recommend windows catering. In particular, this review is for Chris Dunn. Chris was our point of contact for the majority of our wedding. Throughout the entire process, Chris was available and handled our requests with ease. Windows provided several tastings, including cocktail tastings for speciality cocktails. On the day of, we were able to enjoy the event with the assurance that Windows Catering had taken care of everything. I would highly recommend hiring Windows Catering for your next event. Thank you, Chris for everything!

  • Windows was absolutely wonderful to work with for our daughter and son-in-law’s wedding on June 4 at Stone Tower Winery! Their extreme professionalism and knowledge of the wedding industry shined through in all of our interactions with them, and the final results at the wedding were perfect. Lauren provided wonderful recommendations from the hors d’oeuves to the main course. When we walked into the tasting, she had everything elegantly setup as though it was the day. She provided linen and china selections to compliment our daughter and son-in-laws’ vision. The food was amazing and the decor (linens, flatware, stemware, plates, etc.) was a notch above. Lauren and Debbie did a great job working with the staff at Stone Tower Winery. No wonder Windows is one of their preferred vendors. We had a traditional cookie table and Lauren did a fabulous job with presentation. The wedding cake was devine… I don’t think there was a crumb left. Anyone who is looking for an al... Read more

  • Pick Windows. They are the best! I've worked with them on my work's 600 person Gala at the Andrew Mellon Auditorium and at our office christmas party of 65 at our boss's house. They now even cater our 20 person board meetings. So of course I had to use them for my wedding at Top of the Town. Chris Dunn and Aaron Cartier are a blast to work with. They have so many great ideas and totally take care of every single detail. At my wedding, I wasn't going to see the reception space till after the guests had arrived so I am so grateful that I could put all the decor in their hands to put out. Most importantly, the food was AMAZING. All my guests raved about the food. They loved the ice cream bar. And the wedding cake is was the best wedding cake I'd ever tasted. They can do everything and anything. Definitely pick Windows and contact Chris & Aaron.

  • We worked with Steve Schieber at Windows Catering and highly recommend him! He caught the vision of the vibe we were looking for on our wedding day and made sure the food and table settings reflected that. The crew that staffed our reception worked hard and were very professional and fun! Windows catering makes sure it's a worry free, great food, lovely event for the bride and groom!

  • A few months before my reception I decided to host a small breakfast the morning after for out of town guests. I wanted to do something nicer than what the hotel could offer, but with the convenience of everyone at the hotel being able to just walk down from their room. Finding a caterer that does smaller scale hot breakfasts was harder than it might sound! One business was closed, another too busy, another in the midst of a move, and so on. Anne and Windows came to my rescue! They were extremely responsive, flexible and had exactly what I was looking for. Anne was actually so great, she even gave me honest suggestions on where I could save money instead of just racking up as many charges as she could. I really respect that and I loved the thoughtful touches that were completely unexpected - bride and groom decorated donuts, a personal note and even a best wishes email after. Great experience from start to finish!

  • For many years, we have enjoyed AFCEA DC Winter Gala- an event that Windows Catering Company supports. This event is huge and beautiful from start to finish! Year after year Windows "wows" the crowd of 800+ attendees with creative themes and exquiste gingerbread houses. We called Windows Catering Company to inquire if they would take care of our "small" bridal shower. They did and made our party just as beautiful and special as the Gala! We were so pleased with their ideas, creations and guidance- perfection in every little detail! Windows Catering Team was professional, polite and conscientious from set up, to execution to clean up and pick up. The tablescape was fun and creative and the dishes, flatware and glasses made everything so elegant. The food was delicious- especially the mini tacos and the champagne mojitos- WOW! Our shower was very small compared to the Gala, but it was over the top nonetheless. The Bride was pleased! Thank you! Leslie L.

  • Windows was on the cheaper end of a long list of expensive DC catering options. We felt great about them during the tasting, and they price matched us, which sold us on their services. After the wedding, We realize you get what you pay for. They did not bring enough of many vital items for our event, which our guests noticed, and in turn embarrassed us greatly. Spending in the tens of thousands, you expect a little more for your money. Little things like running out of orange juice for a morning wedding with the main cocktail being mimosas just doesn't sit well with us. They are not as detail oriented as we would expect. Several dessert items were not brought out and served to our guests, for some reason, and other staple items were just brought too few of, so that half of the attendees did not get to try. We had agreed in our contract that all left overs were to be boxed for us, and we had to chase them down for the remaining food. Also, our wedding cake was brought to their caterin... Read more
