My wife and I could not have asked for a better caterer for our wedding celebration. We were planning our East coast party from our home on the West coast, and selecting vendors proved a bit challenging.
From the initial conversation with Ant...
hony we felt that we were all on the same page. Anthony completely understood what we were looking for out of our party and immediately had a vision for how to achieve our goals with food.
He was fantastic during the entire planning process, working with my parents (still on the East coast) to coordinate a tasting, working with us on tweaking our menu up until the end.
On the day itself, Anthony's team was phenomenal. The food was exceptional and the prep/presentation was equally great.
Overall, I can't recommend Anthony and AD Catering highly enough!

Beware! This catering company is disorganized and has poor communication. Throughout the process, we felt as if we had to do their job, including organizing our own tasting because no menu was prepared for us. On the day of our wedding with 85 ...
guests, it seemed like the catering "B" team was brought in. Tables were not bussed, appetizers were slow to circulate, lunch was served 20 minutes late. An item that we were contracted to receive was not delivered which we later received compensation for after settling with the catering representative. However, we are generally displeased with the lack of professionalism from this company. After our catering rep was switched without notice months after giving our deposit, Chef Anthony Pino contacted us via email to "personally ensure" he'd place special attention on our event. We even met in person where he stated he attends/oversees most weddings, including ours and would work with us to design a menu (we never saw or heard from him again). After the wedding, when we addressed our service concerns to him directly via email, we recevied no response. That is not how an owner of a business should treat his clients. We do not recommend this catering company for a wedding because our overall impression is that they bite off more than they can chew.

My now husband, Paul and I hired Anthony David's to cater our wedding after several fabulous meals at their restaurant in Hoboken. Vince Crysler is the director of operations and was fabulous throughout the entire wedding planning process. We...
met with Vince last summer and were instantly impressed with his professionalism and attention to detail.
Our wedding was to be held in a raw space which is a huge undertaking as you are planning every detail down to the linens. We first had planned to get married at an art gallery in Brooklyn which Vince met us at to determine to floor plan and flow of the event. At this point we hadn't even hired Vince yet, but he still offered to come and meet us at the space in Brooklyn. After a couple of issues with the venue we were scrambling to find another space that would give us the city vibe, but also a blank slate to make the event our own. Vince recommended Studio 450 as he had done other events there and knew the space well. Suffice to say we took his recommendation and booked the venue and also Anthony David's.
As we got closer to the wedding, I can't tell you the amount of emails I sent Vince whether it was about the food, the rentals, the details of the evening, etc. Vince was patient, responsive and also provided great ideas that neither Paul nor myself would have thought of. We met with Vince several times and over the course of the planning process and also got to know Vince on a personal level, which we really enjoyed. Not only was Vince our caterer but he also functioned as our wedding coordinator taking charge of the day of details, timeline and coordination with the other vendors.
Our wedding day was flawless, Vince's staff was professional and our guests are still raving about the food. We would HIGHLY recommend Anthony David's and especially Vince to anyone planning a party and hope that we have another excuse to hire a caterer in the future.

The staff is so kind, they are sure to please all of your guests. Chef Pino, Vince, and the rest of the staff at Anthony David's are exactly who you want to have do your catering on your wedding day. I recommend everyone I know who gets engaged to them, they are fantastic.

As Hoboken residents, my wife and I have always been a fan of the food at Anthony Davids tasting room. Too many times people leave weddings and comment that the food was mediocre at best, but this was not the case with AD. Since we had alread...
y gotten married at a small destination wedding, we wanted to have a family and friend celebration locally, but did not want a full wedding. Instead, we wanted an elegant and fun cocktail party. Many of the people we spoke to for food would quote is prices for a full wedding, but this just did not fit our needs.
Vince worked closely with us to truly design a customized menu and experience that fit our budget, taste, and needs for the event. Our guests were impressed by the incredibly designed antipasto table, the constant flow of hot d'oeuvres, and then the wonderful dinner that was prepared.
Overall we would highly recommend partnering with AD on your special day because they are not a run of the mill caterer. You will get the highest quality of food that can be easily designed to stay within your budget.

ed like a right fit and the Kolo Klub in Hoboken was one of them. We wanted to be married in a low key Hoboken spot (since that’s where we’ve made our lives as adults) with great food & drinks. Getting married in a bar surrounded by 65 of our closest friends and family was perfect. No seating plan, nothing formal – just an amazing place to celebrate, drink and eat great food (catered by Anthony David’s which was the selling point, since they cater for this space!) Our guests still rave about the charcuterie table that stayed out during the majority of our wedding – a beautiful long wooden table with seasonal fruits, cheeses, meats, roasted brusted sprouts, other veggies, etc – fantastic. I’m so glad that AD was the caterer for this spot, the food & service really made our day that much more memorable. Not only did AD cater the event, but Vince (their director of operations) helped map out how the event should flow throughout the night. Even when choosing to do something informal, we had a beautifully put together wedding. 5 stars.

my best family memories around a big dining room table, amazing food was a must for my wedding. I am the first of four girls in my family to be married, so my mom and I didn't know where to start with caterers. We asked around and read reviews, but ultimately what we needed was unique. We did a complete wedding weekend in Avon, NJ in my parents backyard. We created our own venue right in the backyard! On Friday we wanted to have a small ceremony followed by cocktail hour, 3 course seated dinner and desert for 85 of my relatives and closest friends. On Saturday we wanted to utilize food trucks from NY, NJ, and PA with complimentary food being passed and presented by a caterer for 250 guests- that had a backyard bbq feel. On Sunday my husbands parents wanted to host brunch for anyone who traveled for the weekend.It was going to be a big job for any caterer so we knew we had to find just the right people! My sister lives in Hoboken, NJ and has been a long time customer of Anthony David's. When she reached out to see if they would be capable of executing my vision we met Vince. Vince runs the show with Anthony! He understood and embraced my vision from day one. His dynamic personality brings laughter and ease to the wedding planning process. He is not your ordinary caterer as he went above and beyond the normal calls of duty. By the end of the 5 months he was family! He even knew how to make sure my mom did not lose her mind the week of the wedding. We planned the entire weekend in five months. I was engaged in December and married in early June. On Friday morning of the wedding Anthony (head chef\owner), Vince and their amazing staff arrived at my house early morning took over the kitchen and begin prepping! For dinner we started with a Frisse Salad, panchetta, roasted tomatoes and a poached egg on top. Second course was hand made parpadelle with lobster, grilled octopus, and shrimp in a light tomato cream sauce. The main course was braised short rib with roasted carrots and polenta. It was a meal straight from heaven. To throw a wrench into things it rained on Friday as dinner was being served, AD's team managed to get from the kitchen to the tent with food still steaming hot and even held their trays over my guests head as they would head for the bathrooms. It was a sight I will never forget. Saturday, AD's team did another amazing job passing pigs in blanket, crab cakes, and mini meatballs. They served fresh pasta again, fresh salads, and displayed their signature Antipasto station. MMMMM! They provided a complete staff for the bars, serving, and cleanup! There was a dedicated server who made sure my husband and I had a taste of everything being served! What more could we have asked for? My family and I planned this wedding without a wedding planner, but had we not had Vince and the team from AD, I don't think we could have pulled it off. My husband and I along with our parents received numerous emails and phone calls from guests after the wedding raving about the food\beverage and service. It was the most amazing weekend of our lives and I can't wait for one of my sisters to get married so we can have a reason to use Anthony David's catering again! Or just go to the restaurant again!
