We worked with James, who was AWESOME! Super responsive, easy to work with, very flexible, and provided us with so many options to make our day perfect. Great food, great people. Highly recommend!

Fabulous experience working with Dish catering! James Maroldi, executive coordinator, guided us through the decision making process planning our wedding seamlessly. The food was delicious, beautifully presented and plentiful. We especially like...
d the steak skewers with horseradish dipping sauce and the porky goodness. Our wedding cake crafted by Stephanie Haver was heavenly, vanilla cake layered with fresh strawberries and cream. The staff was very professional and provided outstanding service! We highly recommend Dish catering!

When planning our wedding, being the foodies that we are, my fiancé and I knew that we wanted the CUISINE to be entertainment. For our small, yet sophisticated garden affair, Dish Catering was the perfect fit! James gave us a good impression r...
ight from the start. Unlike other caterers in the area that scoffed at the idea of an intimate 40 (or less) seated meal at a family home, James was excited and seemed eager for a challenge. It seemed as if no idea was out of reach. When the forecast called for torrential downpours and I became a nervous bride with thousands of questions, James stayed cool, calm, and collected. I was confident that he would be able to deliver an event, despite the weather conditions. He took care of everything- from the tent, to the table settings, pre-ceremony cocktail hour, to the cake. Because Dish is a "one stop shop", wedding planning seemed a lot less overwhelming. The day of the wedding, James and his staff remained professional and accommodating, making last minute decisions without breaking a sweat. Their professionalism was matched by a spectacular, fresh, multi-course menu served at a relaxed pace just as I had asked. Each course was delightfully plated and portions never overwhelming. James and his staff were able to serve a positively pretentious meal in an ambiance that felt more like Sunday dinner with family. Servers blended in to their surroundings, but never ignored the small details like filling a water glass, clearing a plate, (re)folding a napkin, and making sure that each guest had the wine that was paired with the course presented. The filet was one of the best I've had in years and...want to know the crazy part??...it was prepared in a garage converted into a kitchen!! Now THAT'S talent. I cannot say enough about this company. I'm incredibly impressed, as were my guests (many of whom have worked in the hospitality business for years). If you're in the area, don't choose anyone else but Dish!

James was immensely helpful in the overall planning process. He helped me plan an event for 50 people in 30 days. He is knowledgeable and available and willing to work with a budget. Go with Dish!

Dish and their Executive Caterer, James took our wedding to a whole other level. The food, service, and management was absolutely fantastic. I would highly highly recommend them to any bride. We had a DIY wedding at Greensgrow Farm in Philadel...
phia, PA and to be honest, Dish was our saving grace in terms of making everything run smoothly. From the moment we had our first phone call with Dish, to the 6 month walk through, to the day-of, James was always there to answer questions, provide advice, and bring an expert level of service to our wedding. We were able to completely customize our menu (and look) via Dish's offerings - from choosing our plates and silverware to match our rustic theme, to serving pies for dessert. Above everything, the FOOD WAS FANTASTIC! I literally had guests texting me the next day asking about our caterer and giving major props to the food. James/Dish served up the best, and the kicker was they did this without a real working kitchen. Since Greensgrow is an urban farm, Dish prepared the meal outside with limited resources. Hiring Dish was the best thing we could have done for our wedding. Absolutely 5 stars.

Dish Catering was an absolute joy to work with for our wedding! We worked with James from our first contact through the wedding, and he runs a tight ship. He was courteous, very knowledgeable about all aspects of putting on a wedding reception ...
and quick to offer suggestions when we were stumped. We were sold after the tasting - the food is genuinely good, not just wedding-food-good - but the price was a bit out of our range. James and the Dish team worked on some menu options that simplified the spread and brought the price to a range we could manage. The food on the wedding day lived up to our memories from the tasting, from the big cocktail hour spread to the well-seasoned brisket & butternut squash lasagna as part of the buffet. We received many compliments from guests about how good the food was!
In addition to the home-run-level food, Dish sorted everything with the tables, chairs, bar setup & liquor. There were tons of options at various price levels for designs, shapes, sizes, etc. All of it looked great, and we are so happy that we went with Dish for our wedding!

The guests RAVED about the food and loved the whole set-up. I will truly miss chatting with James - he made wedding planning a breeze! You have no reason to look any further for the best caterer -- it's Dish!!

When I first spoke to DISH, James Maroldi, the Coordinator, didn't know anything about Lord of the Rings (our theme) but he took the time to get with Mike, our contact for our wedding day and a huge fan of LOTR, to make our menu look and feel l...
ike it could have come from Hobbiton.
Our guests were met with Lothlorien iced tea, and the delicious, wonderful appetizers were straight from the Prancing Pony. We had a first course of Buckleberry Clam Chowder (Manhattan Clam, and the best I've had), with a basket of garlic lembas bread. We had whole "Misty Mountain" boar, and Rosey Cotton's famous chicken, roasted in lemon and garlic.
I think you get the idea. The food was plentiful and delicious, and everything that I could have asked for.
When my wife (fiancé at the time), myself, and my mother-in-law met James for the first time, we went out to their facility to have a tasting of everything they might provide, and to finalize the menu. He offered us tea, coffee, wine, and made sure we had whatever we wanted- making us as comfortable as if we were in our own home. He went over every detail with us, getting our colors right on the tablecloths, making sure my wife got her Manhattan Clam chowder, and changing the appetizers he suggested so that I could get some Buffalo Chicken Spring Rolls, which were some of the most delicious things that ever went in my mouth.
We also got to sample various cakes, and ultimately decided on a cake bar for everyone else, and a small cake that looked like Bag End for my wife and myself. The cake on the day was beautiful and delicious, dripping chocolate and mixed berries when we sliced into it…. And then smeared it on each other’s noses.
I walked away from that first meeting stuffed to the gills and more than confident in our choice of caterer.
DISH was very accommodating and helpful at every turn; they helped us find the tent rental and they provided all the tables and chairs for both our reception area and the actual ceremony site on the other side of the property. We made our own centerpieces and they helped place them at the tables, as well as some mints we made as favors. They allowed us to use our own silverware that had been given us as a gift for all the tables, rather than insisting on fine china- but we did have that option if we had wanted it.
The setup, event itself, and cleanup was in the best of hands, and worth every penny. The staff was professional and efficient, and didn’t get frustrated or annoyed with the groom running around like a chicken with his head cut off, making sure everything was perfect for his wife (the sound system I got working just as guests arrived at the ceremony area). Our bartender was perfect as well, monitoring the inebriation of our guests and keeping everything in stock and cold. I appreciated his levity, and he ensured that whatever I wanted was available.
Mike even managed to get a few awesome photos of my wife while she was getting ready to ride her horse across the property, and was more than happy to share them with us.
I have rarely encountered such wonderful passion for what someone does as I encountered with DISH. Every employee I saw seemed glad to be there, and happy to help with anything they could. They genuinely wanted to make our day as wonderful as possible. Their customer service was beyond reproach, and the quality of their product overall is impeccable.

Right from the start James, Ronald, and the rest of the crew at DISH were amazing! One of my favorite things about them is that they will follow a family recipe if there's something you would like to have at your wedding, so sweet!
so accommodating, understanding of my adjustments and budget worries as we got closer to the date, and amazing in the weeks before; joining us for a final walk through without any complaints.
The day of James ensured everything ran the way we wanted, even if it meant small adjustments to the schedule, and all but forced us to eat during our cocktail hour, which was much appreciated.
The very best!

n and solved every potential problem that came up during the planning process, including adjustments and changes to the menu and last minute napkin choices. His helpful opinions and wealth of experiences helped guide us to confidently make decisions about all the important little details for both events. James and the DiSH staff also helped coordinate all of the tent and lighting rentals, as well as helping to coordinate the purchase and delivery of the alcohol for our event. We also had the pleasure of working with Jonathan for our wedding reception. The entire DiSH team was a true pleasure to work with, we had many guests come up to compliment us not only on the choice of amazing foods, but also to tell us how friendly, professional and unobtrusive the entire catering staff was.
The food was truly amazing. At our Rehearsal Dinner our guests could not stop talking about the delicious and juicy grilled chicken and grilled flank steak. We selected the signature S’mores service for our Rehearsal Dinner dessert and our guests could not stop talking about how fun it was to spend time together around the “camp fire” and enjoy the delicious homemade marshmallows – a truly unique experience! At our Reception, our guests could not stop raving about the food, from cocktail hour straight through to dessert. We had so many compliments about the food and in particular, about the delicious wedding cake.
Our only regret in choosing DiSH is that we did not get to enjoy enough of the amazing food on our wedding day because we were so busy greeting our guests and spending time with them. At both cocktail hour and during the reception, we were each brought a plate of food to enjoy, but the excitement of the day took over and we never got to enjoy the full deliciousness of the food. Now we joke we have to find a friend looking to cater an event and make sure they choose DiSH so we can enjoy all the goodness of DiSH catering!
