Yen of Realfoodcatering was the caterer for my sister’s wedding at The foundry.  My sister loved her, and she worked within her budget and flawlessly arranged all the details while providing an elegant and tasty meal.  She was wonderful with my sis and I met her too and she was always professional and collected when around me.

I’m getting married in September and using almost all of the same people you listed.  Glad to hear the rave review of Hollie – I was supposed to have Christine but she has to be in a wedding that day so I was reassigned to Hollie.  I haven’t found too many reviews of her but the few I’ve seen are just like yours – yay!

It was a total love connection for my husband and me the moment we met them. In fact, I love Real Food Catering so much that I wish I married Gary and Yen instead of my husband.:-P 

My husband and I never planned a wedding or party of this magnitude before, and having Real Food Catering as our caterer was probably the best decision we made for our wedding. We’re obsessed with Yen and Gary, and here’s why!

They’re extremely professional, organized, kind, and go above and beyond what most caterers do at (what I think) an affordable NYC price. They’re sensitive to the stressful wedding process, and were such pleasures to work with all throughout the planning. They were really flexible with what we wanted to include/exclude, but still offered practical, tried-and-true advice and suggestions. We really felt like they genuinely wanted our wedding to be a success. For example, on the big day, Yen and Gary guided the bridal party on all logistics with calmness and a smile. We felt like we were in such good hands. All the little logistical segments during our wedding went smoothly, and was due in large part to Yen and Gary. My husband and I ATE and DRANK at our own wedding (unheard of when you ask many couples)! Their staff brought us drinks and a plate of hor d’oeuvres in our “quiet” room so that we had a chance to eat our cocktail hour food before meeting guests. They also served us plates at dinner, which we weren’t expecting. 

We opted for the buffet instead of plated and had chicken, steak, fish and vegetarian options for our guests. We’ve been getting notes left and right from numerous guests who LOVED the wedding food. The most common compliment was “it was the best wedding food I’ve EVER had,” and “I can’t stop thinking about your wedding food!” Guests have also told us they expected the cocktail hour food to be the peak, but were amazed when the dinner was equally excellent. I’ve been daydreaming about the food ever since — Asian fusion that both our American and Chinese guests thoroughly enjoyed. Let’s put it this way: RFC actually had to wash more plates because they weren’t expecting so many guests to come back for seconds!

We researched many caterers in the NYC area, but RFC was by far the one we felt spoke to us and the type of wedding we wanted to have. They’re a smart, top-notch caterer with great attention to detail and logistics. They truly have a passion for what they do. Also, they’re such lovely people in general! We’re actually kind of depressed that our wedding is over because we already miss Yen, Gary, and their wonderful staff. 

We’re so, so happy that Real Food Catering was part of our special day. We dare not imagine what our wedding would’ve been without them. So if you want an INCREDIBLE wedding, book Real Food Catering!
