I can’t thank you and your staff enough for a job well done last week! I knew the menu and the overall design concept I requested was a bit risky, considering our audience; however, not only did you “pull it off” but you, your chef and your entire team executed everything, beautifully. The food, the décor and the service was top notched! I have received nothing but rave reviews about the entire evening. As always, 12th Street Catering delivered what it promised, making the event a huge success. I truly look forward to working with you on many more successful events!

I could not thank Michele and her team at 12th St. enough for providing our guests with fabulous service at our event. Attendees could not say enough about how helpful the staff was and how delicious the food and beverages were - we even had people posting photos of the food on social media throughout the day. Everything from helping me conceptualize our layout, creating a signature cocktail, choosing linens and on-site execution was flawless. I'm looking forward to working with 12th Street Catering again in the future!

12st catered our wedding of 250 this past June. Genna was incredible. So on point and easy to work with. Food was delicious, certainly a highlight of the wedding. Two words: polenta stack. Two more: Greek quesadilla. One more: sliders. Staff was very courteous and professional. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Simply put, 12th Street Catering blows my freaking mind. The level of service this company provides is unrivaled. I have never had such a pleasant experience working with a group of people. Michele and her staff are all so very kind, professional and accommodating. I guarantee you will not find a company more capable of making your event an exceptional experience. Oh, and did I mention the food? Because holy crap, their food is out of this world. I won't claim to be familiar with the catering business, but preparing a hot and delicious meal made with love for hundreds of people seems a Herculean task to me. 12th Street makes it seems like a breeze. Choose 12th Street Catering for your event and you will not be disappointed. They are a huge part of the reason me and my wife's wedding day was as magical as it was. I cannot recommend this company enough.

The event went beautifully! The food was beyond exceptional and completely exceeded expectation. I loved your staff. This was indeed this was an A list crew. Together they ran a fantastic, tidy kitchen, very competent and organized. It was a beautiful beautiful evening and more than a few guests, including our Head of School, mentioned that this was one of their more lively, tasty and fun events! The way your crew placed and set everything up, along with their welcoming attitude had a lot to do with that!

I cannot say enough good things about Genna and her team and the incredible job they did for our wedding. The room looked fabulous, the food was sensational, and your staff was courteous and professional and lovely. And, because Genna is the very model of "I've got this," our memories of that day are an unqualified, happy blur.Many, many thanks, again -
