Nguyen/Maturano Wedding Reception and Buffet Dinner

“Joe and I just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful evening. We were too pumped with adrenaline to have much of an appetite, but everyone told us the food was outstanding. Many people said that the food was the best wedding food they ever had. You helped make our wedding outstanding, and we enjoyed working with you and your team. If you ever need a reference, we would be more than happy to oblige.“ Nguyen/Marturano Wedding Reception & Buffet Dinner

Davis/Ritz Wedding Reception & Buffet Dinner

“When you work with the MOS, you automatically work with Wolfgang Puck Catering for your meal. They are incredibly professional and of course the food is great. Our rep at WPC, Keith, was incredibly helpful in helping plan our meal. We wanted something that wasn't too expensive but at the same time still a really nice meal, and Keith was able to help work with us to create a an exquisite menu at a reasonable price. He also had great suggestions for us on pairing main courses and side dishes, so that too was helpful.” Davis/Ritz Wedding Reception & Buffet Dinner

Mullaly/Sokol Wedding Reception & Buffet Dinner

“This was the most incredible venue. Both CP and Keith who organized the venue and amazing food were incredible, I was so relaxed and knew I was in good hands with the both of them. They were not only personable but took the time to figure out exactly what I wanted and made the night the most incredible night of my life. I would get married there time and time again. I encourage anyone to have their wedding party or anything festive there! I honestly can't say enough! My guests also have been talking about it since, saying it was the best wedding that they had ever been to!!” Mullaly/Sokol Wedding Reception & Buffet Dinner

“I want to thank you for all of the hard work and energy that you and your team put into making this event a brilliant success. Everything was perfect - the tables, the food - EVERYTHING! Employees were raving all Saturday night about what an amazing time they were having, and I came back to a full inbox this morning from additional people telling me this was the best holiday party yet! I know Mary and I were a handful to work with at times, so I truly appreciate your patience and helpfulness throughout the entire process.

Hollins University Cocktail Reception

"The event was simply wonderful. I heard rave comments about the hors d'oeuvres, the setting, and presenation of the room. I think we had just the right number of tables and the room looked full, but not stuffed. I Couldn't have been more please. Thank you again for making the evening so perfect. The weekend in Boston exceeded my expectations. I had lots of happy people returning to their respective cities on Sunday. Good planning made for a goot event. Hollins University Cocktail Reception

McManus/Southwick Wedding Reception & Dinner

“The catering staff was on top of EVERYTHING. We had a number of food allergies and they were all over it. I was struck by the presentation, the linens, the glassware, and of course the food. It was all taken care of to every detail. Guests still speak highly of the tuna tartare app, as well as the miso salmon and filet mignon. I still crave the braised short ribs on polenta.” McManus/Southwick Wedding Reception & Dinner

I hope this email finds you well. I’m going to write formal letters later, but I wanted to thank you for all of your hard work putting together the Varian event on September 21. You did a great job and your on-site team was fantastic. There was never a time where the buffets were running low or the bar lines too long. It was a hugely successful event and we have Wolfgang Puck to thank for that. - Client
