Real Food catering is the only way to go if you are putting together a wedding where you provide your own caterer. Yen and Gary are PHENOMENAL - personally, professionally and as foodies! But their ... Read more expertise does not stop at just the food. They help with everything - from giving suggestions to other fabulous vendors, to helping you with your floor plan, choosing your alcohol, wine and champagne, helping with your timeline and giving ideas on how to make your night the best it can possibly be. Our food was exceptional. Our guests raved about how delicious, fresh, and flavorful it all was - from appetizers to dessert! We chose the peking duck in sticky rice buns as one of our unlimited appetizers and we literally had guests stalking the staffers for them - people texted us this week asking about our caterer and what all the wonderful food was that they ate at our wedding. Gary is the best - he is hands on and helps ensure your night is all it can be and more. We wanted for nothing during our reception - he and Yen made sure we had everything! Also, their prices are so competitive - in NYC, where everything tends to be overprices, Real Food is honest and works with you to make sure you are getting the best you can possible get for fair prices per guest. The day of and days after, guests have complimented, posted, emailed and texting using words/phrases such as "EPIC", "BEST WEDDING EVER" and "WEDDING OF THE CENTURY"...we could not have achieved that level of enjoyment, sophistication and deliciousness with our guests if it weren't for Yen and Gary. To all NYC bride to be's and groom to be's, go with Real Food Catering and you will have the best night of your life. Our suggestion is to contact them early - because they are so hands-on, they can only do so many weddings per year.

Hiring Real Food will be the best decision you make!
I truly have no words to fully describe just how amazing working with Yen and Gary and the rest of the Real Foods team has been. Hiring them was hands down the best decision we made for our wedding at ... Read more the Green Building! From our first communication with Yen - we knew we were in great hands. Not only was Yen very responsive, but she and Gary were so helpful with not just food choices but also the rentals, the layout, the timeline and so many other details of the night! When we had our tasting, we were so impressed and when we tasted the food at our wedding, we were just blown away! All our guests raved about how delicious the food was and how much food there was - everyone was stuffed!! I want to re-do the wedding just to have more of the delicious food! Trust me when I say, hire Real Food Catering for your wedding and you will be so thankful you did! I didn’t have to worry about a single thing the day of my wedding - Yen and her team had it all under control. We would hire them again in a heartbeat and recommend them wholeheartedly!

We are so happy to have chosen Real Food for our wedding. Throughout our planning process, we left each meeting and phone call feeling very happy and assured that we were in the right hands. We could ... Read more could not have imagined our wedding day turning out any better than what Yen and her team accomplished. The tables were beautiful, the setup of everything was beautiful, and the transitions of everything from ceremony to cocktail hour to dinner were seamless.

With Yen and Gary running the show, we did not have to worry. They are true professionals!
