Another Amazing Job by J Scott Catering

Reviewed on 7/21/2013 Cynthia M

This was the second wedding we have used J. Scott for the catering. Both times the food was excellent. We received many compliments from our guests. This wedding was a buffet and the display of the food for the wedding "barbecue" was incredible, not your typical display. The... Read More staff was also very accommodating when the morning of the event we decided to move the ceremony inside due to the heat. They flipped the room during cocktails. I would highly recommend J. Scott for a wedding or any other event.

J. Scott Catering did a wonderful job for my daughter's wedding. They were extremely accommodating to any request that was made. We had several people that were vegetarians, including the bride, guests that were gluten free and guests that were dairy free. J. Scott even... Read More prepared a special meal for a guest that was gluten free, dairy free and did not eat meat. The food was delicious and I am still receiving compliments on all aspects of the meal. Everything is fresh and they make everything that is served. During our tasting, I commented on how delicious the caesar dressing was on the salad and asked where they got it from. The dressing , of course, was made by J Scott. Alicia, the wedding planner and coordinator for J Scott, was excellent and very accessible. She dealt with all of our requests and helped us in many ways. The ceremony site and the reception site was set up just as we requested. This caterer is an excellent choice for any event that you want to hold!!

Our venue, The Radnor Hunt, exclusively uses J. Scott for its catering of special events. This was actually fantastic because we had one less decision to make for our wedding, and I knew that J. Scott was known for its quality catering. Working with Alicia C. throughout the... Read More process was wonderful. She was extremely responsive and went back and forth with me on several menu decisions without any sense of annoyance! She even helped us problem solve our appetizer course. The tasting experience made us feel special and like they were focused on making sure our day was perfect. They incorporated our feedback into their day-of details. Additionally, Alicia willingly let us come back later and change our linen decisions after we'd already spent a lot of time reviewing that detail. Day of, everything looked beautiful and even better the food tasted delicious! Our guests were very pleased with the choices we had made and you could tell there was a steady stream of appetizers during cocktail hour. Alicia was very attentive to our needs on the day of and even made sure we were given one last cocktail when the bar closed since we were on the dance floor! J.Scott and Alicia were very accommodating to our schedule since we were planning our wedding out of town, and they made it really easy to work with them. I would recommend them again to those using the venue or considering an event on the Main Line.

We were thrilled with the service and quality provided by J Scott for our wedding at the Phoenixville Foundry. Rachel was our wedding coordinator and she was absolutely spectacular in handling all the little details that go into planning the perfect party. Rachel made it easy to... Read More keep us organized. As the day approached, not only was she available via email, phone, or text, but she provided spreadsheets and a list of dates for us to maintain. On the actual day, Rachel and the staff made us feel like royalty, never coming off as intrusive, but always making sure the bride, groom, and guests had everything they wanted. J Scott is one of the exclusive caterers of the Foundry, so they have experience dealing with the in's and out's of the venue, hitting on all the small details to make our day perfect. We were somewhat particular in what we wanted and J Scott not only listened, but delivered. We requested extra large shrimp, and we had at least 30 guests tell us that they were the biggest shrimp they had ever seen. Our guests raved about the quality and amount of food provided. The food was served promptly, in unison, and hot. Each of our tables were served by 5 servers who placed the plates down in unison - all tables members were served at the exact same time. Quality caterer that made our day that much better...Highly Recommend!

I can't even imagine how my daughter's wedding could have been more perfect. My daughter and son-in-law live overseas so much of the planning was done with Alicia via email. So many perfectly executed details and such a beautiful venue. Our guests absolutely raved about the... Read More food. With most caterers, I would be a little hesitant to order filet mignon for a large number of people. But after our tasting we were absolutely confident that J.Scott Catering could pull it off...and they did. The other entrees were equally delicious. The venue itself is beautiful and tranquil. We were so lucky to enjoy a wonderful fall day filled with lovely foliage, goats and sheep watching us from the pasture below, lawn games after the wedding and fire pits to cap off a terrific day and evening. I would absolutely recommend Springton Manor for anyone looking for an outdoor venue. They have a great back-up plan in case of inclement weather, so there was no hesitation on our part for booking late in October. Great venue, staff and service!

There aren't enough nice things to say about J. Scott. We got married at Springton Manor Farm, which might be the most beautiful place I have ever seen. If you are going for a barn/outdoor wedding theme, this is the only place you should look. The manor house itself is exactly... Read More how it would have looked 100 plus years ago. There are still pictures hanging on the mantels, the carpet is vintage, the bridal suite has a claw foot tub and beautiful victorian furniture. The tent is HUGE and gorgeous. It comfortably fit a massive dance floor, 10 piece band and 130 guests. While sticker shock was something we definitely experienced with this venue, especially with the market lights, it was well worth it (get the lights, they are incredible). The food was delicious and there was TONS of options to choose from when we did our tasting. Finally, our planner Rachel Brown was amazing. She was tentative, patient and answered all of our questions so quickly and thoroughly. She listened to all of my crazy DIY projects and created the most beautiful atmosphere for us. I would definitely recommend working with J. Scott.

My fiancé and I were compelled to write a review not only for J. Scott Catering but for Spencer, our event planner. When we first saw Springton Manor we absolutely fell in love with the venue, so much so that we booked the next day! What J. Scott has to offer at that location... Read More (and others in Greater Philadelphia) is second to none. The package they offered us came very organized and laid out extremely well, giving you the option to pick and choose any additional features that allow them to make your day extra special. We were most excited for the fire pits as we planned on having an October Wedding. Unfortunately, a very peculiar circumstance arose a few weeks after we booked our Wedding with J. Scott, one which involved us having to change our date and venue. As soon as we found out about this situation we immediately called Spencer. Spencer went into action helping us anyway he possibly could. In the end we had to let them know we could not use their services any longer, which was a big letdown for us. In this instance any other company likely would have taken advantage of the circumstances without blinking an eye. Scott and Spencer contacted us right away and gave us our deposit back. We were so grateful to them for understanding our unique scenario. They truly are in this business for all the right reasons. In this day and age that is almost unheard of to receive such great customer service. Although my fiancé and I will not be using J. Scott Catering or Spencer (the best event planner there is), I would highly recommend using their services. They are nothing but true professionals and an absolute delight to work with. We hope to work with them in another capacity in the future.

She handled every little detail and made my husband and I feel extremely confident that our wedding would go over without any issues, which it did. She even played the music for us for our ceremony to help us save some money with the band! The table set ups were beautiful and they had so many options to choose from. They allowed me to have a smores bar near 3 fire pits that were attended throughout the night to make sure the fire kept! We had lawn games for my guests to play at cocktail hour and all of the servers and bar tenders were wonderful. Every time my husband and I snuck away for a minute one of the staff would get us a drink or food or a chair to sit on. If you want your wedding to magical and a great memory, do yourself a favor and choose J Scott. They worked with us on budget, presentation, and our own personal touches. I absolutely loved working with them.
