We were very impressed with the professionalism and eye for detail from Distinctive Catering for our son’s wedding reception. We, and our guests, were also impressed by the quality of the place settings, the service, and the food. We really felt the pricing was very reasonable, the servers moved in and around us quietly and unobtrusively, and their appearance was very professional. Thier ability to work with us was exemplary. We wouldn’t hesitate to hire them avain for any event.
