"I spoke with Nick several times before the event to change my order a few times. He was kind and gracious about dealing with a mom in the midst of planning a wedding." Getting this order under control was important because we had a lot of people in town for the wedding. Nick was incredibly helpful, even texting instead of calling because I was just not able to get to my phone. The food. Excellent.. Plentiful. Tasty. We ordered for 25 people, ate it on several occasions over the weekend and still filled two ziplocs with leftover meat. The appetizer trays were completely consumed. Nothing left on any of them. Nick even customized them to include less stuffed grape leaves and more spanikopita to fit our group. Everyone was so pleased! Nick at OVG was a gem. The food was more plentiful then we needed. 25 people to them was actually able to feed 40 of us. Next time I'd under-order. All around great experience!


"This was the best catering experience we have ever had, by far. helped with the planning and followed through on everything well in advance." She consulted with the chef concerning the food, and they arrived early and set everything up with plenty of time. All cooking was done on the premises, and they kept fresh food coming for everyone the entire night. They had 2 servers and a bartender to take care of everyone, and no one was neglected. The servers circulated among all the guests constantly, going through the house as well as to our large outdoor room. Everyone loved the food. It was varied and all done so people could eat everything without having to sit down or juggle items between their hands. After they were done they cleaned everything completely and when they left you could not tell we had had a large party. True to their word, it was as if we were guests in our own home.

Thank you does not begin to do justice to the perfect plates that Smoke & presented at our wedding. and his cook staff brought our idea of a "sexy farmers " to life through the food. Every item on our menu burst with individual flavor and a seasonal freshness that ...More can only be found by foraging local farms. Be prepared to never look at a Sunday dinner that you spend hours preparing the same way again; it just won't taste like Smoke & no matter how hard you try. From the moment that we sent our Save The Dates we promised our guests "Wicked Good Food" and Smoke & delivered ten fold. Three weeks later and guests are still raving about it! Without a doubt food is the focus of what Smoke & does on the day of your event but what is even more special then the food (yes, it's possible) is the co-owner and event coordinator . She will instantly become your beacon of hope and of light as you navigate the overwhelming waters of the wedding world. She knows what she's talking about at every turn, so listen; especially when it comes to the using Tents and Garnish & Drink! has a new right hand woman, that will take your design and decor dreams and turn them into a stunning reality. From concept to a computer mockup to rentals, a finished product and a lifelong memory will create it! Smoke & will typically have 2 events on the same day and will be onsite with the event that has a greater headcount. Gasp. What will you do without ???? Have no fear, Arlyn will be there. This woman is a true superhero. She handled every bump on our big day while still seeking out my Husband and I as well as the closest people to us to make sure that we had everything that we wanted or needed (including cocktails from the bar while we sat down enjoying dinner, superb touch). At one point we lost power and a serious track of time but the guests were so well taken care of that the hiccups never even mattered. The service staff are friendly, outgoing, knowledgeable and down right fun while still maintaining 5 star standards. Go into the cook space and get a behind the scenes glimpse at the greatness that is Smoke & ; if you are a true foodie when you step inside their world you will shed tears (I did lol). A word of advice to any future client... Prepare to have your mouth water well before your event because the moment puts your menu together you will daydream on end about the taste of your big day! All you have to do is give an idea of what you want and then resist the urge to unleash your inner Bridezilla and just go with the flow; allow Smoke & to dazzle you with the details and fill your belly with an abundance of local love.

It went very well. My guests raved about the food. It was delicious -- every item on the menu was excellent. The Roasted Stuffed Pork Tenderloin and the Chicken Francaise were wonderful. I was especially impressed that the Sautéed Seasonal Vegetables were cooked perfectly and not overdone or soggy. The servers were very cheerful and helpful. ...More Set-up and clean-up were efficient. They provided all the tableware. Nothing was missing. They removed all the trash and left the area clean. They packaged the leftovers for us. was very pleasant to work with. His suggestions were very helpful in the planning process. I was able to enjoy the event more because I was confident that everything was under control.

not fast and not anywhere s close to reasonable and 6 people "working" there and no one can throw some into cook while ...More you stand around?

We decided we would host a wedding reception at our house
and originally planned to use a local restaurant to supply the food. On a whim I
used Angie’s list to find caterer just so I was informed what the difference was
in doing it ourselves or having it done professionally. My wife and I met with Chef
...More at and were immediately overwhelmed with his professionalism,
enthusiasm for his work, and dedication to making it a perfect event, not just
for the bride and groom, but also for us, the hosts.
We were offered lots of choices on appetizers, salads, main
courses and drinks. On any item we did not feel comfortable making a decision on
Chef was more than willing provide us recommendations. Chef visited
our house and helped us plan out the event, picking locations for serving tables and additional
places for the large number of our guests to sit and eat comfortably. They
even provided us with recommendations on how to stock our bar so we would have
what guest would ask for. Planning the event was smooth and we received all of
the help for Priceless Catering we needed to get ready.
The event went perfectly. All of the serving staff that was supplied
by were very professional and treated all of our guests like
celebrities. The food, from appetizers to desserts were fantastic. All of the various rounds of food were served
throughout the afternoon, including wedding cake and campaign, were handled by
them and everything was done on time and with no unwanted surprises. The bar
tender they supplied was also wonderful. She was knowledgeable, friendly and our
guests loved her.
Priceless Catering lived up to their promise to clean
everything up before they left after the event. Everything was cleaned. The kitchen
was cleaned; garbage picked up throughout the house, furniture returned to normal,
and everything was spotless.
We received comments from many of our guest how great the
food was, how good the service was and how nice the staff was. I would highly recommend
to all of my friends to use . When I do another event I would
immediately call them a not even consider looking for another caterer.
- russell K.

Great! Working with before the event went smooth as they were responsive to emails and requests to meet. My wife has celiac disease -- as does one of our friends who attended -- and that was not an issue.
On the day of the event they showed up promptly and set up expediently. One of the owners, ...More , was there working so he answered last minute questions; easy to work with him. On the other end of the event, they took down everything efficiently, even as a few of us who were a bit tipsy were hanging around.
The food was excellent, as several of our guests commented. In fact, several asked for cards from as a reference for another event.
We would certainly turn to again for catering.

- Peter D.

son recently got married and we had the reception catered by "
". More aptly, it was a fiasco by . To start
out, he was 2 hours late. The first van arrived after the ceremony
started. Of course, at this point we were panicking, wondering ...More if we were
going to have a caterer at all. The person coordinating the wedding
attempted to call him, but was unable to reach him as he wasn't answering, and his voice mailbox was
full. What kind of businessman allows this to happen! He was finally
reached by text so we knew he was on the way. The first van arrived with
warm beer and no ice. At this point the ceremony was over, and the plan
was to serve hors d'oeuvres and drinks while the wedding party was getting the
final photographs. It was over an hour before anyone got a drink or an hors d'oeuvre. The
owner of the venue was very upset also, and even
gave them some ice to chill the . Well things just continued to
spiral out of control as the evening progressed. They said they ran out
of red wine after less than an hour, but they must have sent out for some because
they had some later in the evening. I saw some of the staff folding
silverware into the napkins. This should have been done prior to
arriving, as it only added to the extreme lateness of the entire affair.
Some people were leaving early as they were hungry and weren't getting
fed. People couldn't get up to dance to the band or they wouldn't get a
plate of food, so they just had to sit at the table and wait to eat.
People didn't start getting their meals until well after 8, and my
husband and myself didn't get ours until 9 p.m. When it finally did come,
the food was cold. Some people only got meat and potatoes and not the
green beans. And CANNED GREEN BEANS--REALLY!!! What were they
thinking??? Family and members of the wedding party were helping to bus
the tables (removing salad plates) to help things along. Of course, all
this was extremely stressful for us. We were very embarrassed that our
guests had to endure this completely horrendous service.
son called a week after the event to let him know of our disappointment.
He seemed to agree that things did not go well. There were multiple
instances of breach of contract in the whole event. Our son sent him an email
of what we thought was a fair reimbursement. This was composed with the
help of one of the groomsmen who works in the catering industry. Our son
never heard from again. He sent him 3 subsequent emails requesting
him to follow up on this and contact them, all of which were ignored.
I am
writing this in the hopes that no one else will ever have to endure this
incompetence for their special event.
