To say that I am obsessed with Pairings is an understatement. From the moment we met Eileen, the catering director, I loved her, and when we finally booked with them (several months after we should ... Read more have, during which we seriously considered eloping), knowing Eileen was on our side took a huge weight off my shoulders. She was so attentive, asking ahead of time what each our VIPs' preferred drink was, and if there were any special requests to prepare for. That dedication carried over to the entire team, and the staff was incredible. Immediately after our family-only ceremony, they appeared like magic with everyone's favorite drink. Every time we turned around, they were there with trays of food and drink, checking to see if we needed anything. Our bartender was a champ--I think she made about 200 lemon drop shots over the course of the evening. When we ran out of vodka (embarrassing), the staff went to the nearest liquor store (that they had scoped out in advance) to get more, another example of their intensive preparations. Besides the wonderful service, there was the food. Oh, the food. The shrimp and grits is possibly the best meal I have ever had, and will ever have. The golden beet salad is incredible, and the cream of crab soup shooters we had for cocktail hour were a huge hit. Wedding food can be kind of bland, but not if you work with Pairings. We got so many compliments (like we did any of the work), and have had requests to have the exact same wedding next year so all of our out-of-town guests can have the food again. I think one of our guests said it best: "The shrimp and grits. The crab soup. Just...the shrimp and grits. Wow." Pairings made our wedding so much fun and so memorable (even after 200 lemon drop shots), and we can't thank them enough!

Eileen and company were wonderful for our daughter's wedding on 5/4/19. We had a couple of tastings before we came to Pairings Bistro. We were so impressed by the quality of the food and with Eileen, ... Read more we placed our deposit before we even left the restaurant. Eileen and the Chef both just got our daughter's vision immediately. The food was fantastic, the way they created the signature drink was beyond our thoughts...just perfect. Even the attention to detail. I was standing, talking to some friends, with an empty glass. Next thing i knew, there is Eileen, from out of nowhere, replacing my empty with a brand new one. Can't thank them enough for a wonderful experience. Made our daughters wedding an even better celebration. Thanks again, Eileen and Parings Bistro!!!

So glad we chose Pairings!
Pairings Bistro & Catering did a phenomenal job on our son's rehearsal dinner on August 9! Eileen listened to us at our initial consultation & tasting, offered valuable insight from her years of ... Read more experience, and even brought along table numbers that night, which I had forgotten about! The shrimp & grits appetizer was a big hit, and the prime rib, roast duck, pasta with lentil meatballs, and dessert cups (cheesecake or chocolate mousse) were all delicious! We heard so many compliments! All of the Pairings staff were professional and friendly, providing us with the relaxed atmosphere we wanted for this "night before the big day" event. We will definitely think of Pairings for our future catering needs.
