Just wanted to drop a note to say MANY thanks for your amazing help last week!! Our event was a HUGE success that’s in huge part thanks to you and your team. Everyone said how amazing the food was and how kind and helpful the staff was, so thank you!  You guys are truly my favorite caterer in the city!  Can’t wait to do many more events together !!

Rovera Knapp Wedding

Everything was so great! Couldn’t have asked for a better evening. It went off without a hitch!

We received MANY compliments about the food! A lot of people said it was the best food they ever had at a wedding!!  Also we had lots of compliments about the wait staff— attentive and friendly!

Rachel was great! Very professional in a stressful environment and was of great help throughout the night!

The bouquet and decorations were absolutely lovely. People loved the pumpkins!

Any snafus, which were minimal,were taken care of immediately. With courtesy.

We are both very grateful for all your service and that of CBD.


The wedding was BEYOND wonderful.  I cannot thank you and your team enough for all of your hard work, it was everything we wanted and so much more!  We got so many compliments on the venue, the decor and especially the food!  All thanks to you, and I will send pictures when we get them back from the photographers!


Can’t thank you and your wonderful staff at CBD for last Friday’s party at Hawkhurst.  All went well, from the bar to the marvelous hors d’ouevres to the sound system, much to the acclaim of the guests.

All attending enjoyed themselves, and while it was a memorial occasion, I’m grateful that it was a celebratory one as well.  Due to your expert planning and experience, it was a smooth run from set-up to clean-up, allowing me to attend to the guests without distractions.  Needless to say, at the end of the evening a huge sigh of relief went up!

Am most grateful for the thoughtfulness and care you gave to this event, which was difficult to stage, but well worth it.

With appreciation and all best wishes to you and family for the holidays and beyond!



Thank you!
Again, you knocked it out of the park! It’s so easy to work with your team.  Roe and the whole crew were so great and accommodating.  It’s sometimes hard to find service that knows how to work quietly and efficient while programs are taking place, but they did a fantastic job.
The food was absolutely delicious.  While we had leftovers, they did not last long at all! My colleagues made sure to find homes for all of it.
Thank you for helping us make the event a success.  I appreciate your putting me at easy with the space constraints and our limited equipment.
I hope that we can work together again in the near future!

Everything was perfect. From the moment of a warm welcome on entry to the fond farewell, nothing was missing. Dan, you were everywhere at once! So many people commented to me about how gracious you are and how you knew just what was needed. Peter was lovely as well. How really nice of him to come too!!

You pulled out all the stops. Britt, the setting was utterly beautiful and charming even despite our tapering of some elements. You managed to transform it into a winter wonderland and also paradise all at once!! The flowers were and are spectacular. Everyone has remarked upon them, and those who received flowers today were thrilled. As are we with the wreath and centerpiece that we kept. They are stupendous arrangements!!!!!

Candles everywhere were abs beautiful and created such an awesome atmosphere. It was really so lovely in every way. Really a wonderland. . The fake snow in touches was great too. It was wonderful.

Everyone commented about how much they loved the food. It was awesome from the appetizers and great bar set ups through to the extraordinary dessert bar. Dan, you did a great job. Thank you so much.


RAVE REVIEWS!  Everyone was buzzing this morning, because you helped make our evening a raving success.  Specifically, the sushi/dumpling station was a hit.Roe and the whole team really were phenomenal – courteous, caring and so attentive to our guests’ needs.  We were so glad that you were on site with us last night.


My husband and I recently had the pleasure of working with Megan and Catering by Design for our wedding at the College of Physicians. From the beginning, Megan was a pleasure to work with and very accommodating especially considering we were planning this wedding from Hawaii. She made herself available to me when it was convenient for me; taking into consideration the time difference, my work schedule and responded to all e-mails promptly. We were provided with three different menu options within our budget and taste as well as those that went with our vision for the evening.

When it came to our wedding day we found that the entire Catering by Design staff was prepared, professional, and carried the event out seamlessly. The staff was particularly attentive, courteous and kind to the bridal party and immediate family.

The food was prepared exactly how we had wanted. Our guests and family members are still raving about the quality of the food.

We would absolutely recommend using Catering by Design and Megan for your wedding !


I want to thank you for providing the BEST service we have ever received from a caterer. I wish you could travel with our association to handle all our film events. You were truly terrific. Thought of issues ahead of time, created a beautiful buffet, and made us feel cared for. THANK you – you obviously love your job and your clients feel that love.

You are the best!

Thanks for making our film  feastival so enjoyable. Everyone loved it, in great part because of the food and service. Thanks to all your team members as well.


EVERYONE LOVE IT!!!!   I loved working  with Chris and Ted and I even got to see Rebekah who got married at the Zoo earlier this year.   You guys are the best.  It was so easy working with you and your team.   By the time we arrived on site, they had everything set up and looking gorgeous.   Then when the last guest left and we turned around to see if we could help with breakdown —they already had everything done.



We can’t decide which we liked more.  The food on Friday night or the leftovers today!!!  Thank you so much for everything.  Décor, staff, food, planning was all superb!  As your staff may share with you, we all really enjoyed ourselves – the party was a blast.  Nothing was missing!

Thanks for making the whole thing so easy!
