Client Testimonials

Please accept my deepest thanks to you and your team for preparing and serving such a beautiful meal for the celebration of Ken’s life. Everyone commented on the lovely presentation and originality of the menu, the elegant table settings, and the seamless service. The food was delicious! I am grateful that you could accommodate the myriad dietary restrictions of all guests. You worked under unusual conditions––no kitchen, no electricity––and did so with grace. It was a relief that you and Chris coordinated the tent, tables, chairs, and table linens so that I did not have to worry about them. You and your team are professional, responsive, and gracious. Truly, you deserve your stellar reputation as a caterer. Thank you for agreeing to cater this event and making it so memorable.


Dave and I can't thank you enough for all that you did to make Saturday a fantastic celebration. We have received many, many compliments from friends/family about the attention to detail, the food, the band and the general atmosphere of the evening. Thank you for making our night so special! A night to remember for sure!

Dave & Len

This stellar team made the events of our wedding day go seamlessly. We and our guests were thrilled with the quality of the food and service which made guests feel at ease. Communication before and during the event was terrific as well. Would recommend CBD to anyone who asked.


We could not have had a better experience with Catering by Design. As a wedding photographer myself I interact with countless vendors and CBD is among the best of the best. We were lucky enough to work with Kelly and she was extremely attentive and always quick to answer questions kindly and thoroughly. Our guests were blown away by the selection for cocktail hour and they raved about the awesome staff, service and food during dinner. We highly recommend them.


A BIG thanks for all you did to make the event “smashing,” “exhilarating,” “joyous,” and “beautiful.” These are just a few of the adjectives we have been reading ALL day from so many happy guests. Many commented on the food and service which was no surprise, of course. You are a class act and we could not be happier with your execution of the event.

Ann Meredith, Herald Publishing & Herald Foundation

I want to say absolutely from the deepest depths of my heart, thank you for everything for last night. It was honestly a dream come true. You and your staff were incredible, everything was perfect, and I couldn’t have asked for more. John and I are amazed, the guests were amazed, everything was just the best thing ever. So, thank you, thank you, thank you! I was beyond happy the outcome and you’ve been our biggest asset through this whole thing.


We spent a good portion of our honeymoon talking about how great our wedding was. It was so beautiful, the food was delicious, and your staff was so professional and helpful to everyone. Rich said you are one of the best he’s ever seen. I appreciate how you made everything look so pretty, and all of your attention to detail throughout the whole evening, and during all the planning.

Angela & Rich
