We hired Alan Weiss to cater our daughter’s wedding. We could not have been more pleased with the entire process. Alan is very personable, asked all of the right questions (since he has been doing this for over 20 years), and gave wonderful suggestions. He also acted as our wedding planner and wedding coordinator. The wedding was incredible, great job Alan!

I really enjoyed working with Alan Weiss on building our wedding catering menu. Alan is a great communicator and has a great personal touch when working with prospective clients. His prices are a good value and his service pricing structure is very straightforward. I would recommend Alan to anyone seeking a true catering professional with a personal touch.

We were searching for a kosher caterer in the DC/Baltimore area for our son’s wedding that was willing to really work with us in regards to our budget. We immediately felt that we were finally speaking with a true professional and that everything would be taken care. He has fantastic references and many years of catering experience. Alan ensured that everything was coordinated between the venue, the band, the Rabbi etc. We highly recommend Weiss catering for your next event-Enjoy!

Catering by Alan Weiss is the only caterer we ever use. We now have come full circle as they were our caterer for our children’s Bar and Bat Mitzvahs and now our son and daughter-in-law’s wedding. The wedding was absolutely perfect. Catering by Weiss gets an exemplary A++++ by our entire family!

I would definitely recommend Catering by Alan Weiss to a couple planning their wedding. In addition to the wedding, Alan catered an engagement party and welcome dinner, both of which were given by the groom’s family at their home, and he catered the post-wedding brunch at our home. Every event was perfect! The food was absolutely delicious, also very creative and enticing. Everyone on his staff is very professional, friendly, and competent. I am very much looking forward to the next time I get to have a meal catered by Alan!

This is my fourth affair with Catering by Weis. That should speak volumes to anyone who reads this.

Alan is great to work with. He is very knowledgeable and helps out with everything – from making other vendor recommendations, to planning, to day of coordination. He is amazing!

This was the second wedding that Alan Weiss catered for our family and I strongly recommend his company. With Alan’s excellent suggestions, the menu for my daughter’s wedding was innovative, delicious and abundant. He creatively met all my daughter’s requirements for a menu with plenty of vegetarian choices. Alan went out of his way to make the day hassle-free for the whole family.

THERE IS NO OTHER CATERER”!!! I can’t say enough about Alan and his staff. Every superlative is not enough to describe what Alan did for us and what our affair/reception was like. I am a former New Yorker and am very difficult and demanding. I want what I want and will not settle for anything less. Perfection is the only way I can describe our affair!!! There is no one that can compare or is in the same class as Catering by Alan Weiss.

I want to thank you for the kind way that you helped us through the whole catering process while we were planning my daughter’s wedding. I am so thankful that you really worked and guided us through all of the details in such a thoughtful, respectful and attentive way. Your calm, happy, and easy going personality put me at ease, yet you were always particular about the details so that I felt secure that the job would be done correctly.

The day of the wedding you took charge, and directed the wedding process down to the smallest detail, it allowed me to relax and enjoy the wedding. In addition, the food was outstanding, the presentation was elegant, and the wait staff was always attentive. Your diligence and attentiveness to the job was exceptional.

I wish you well, and will surely recommend you as a superior caterer.

We loved working with Alan. We mixed an Orthodox Jewish family and a Reform Jewish family making for a wedding with some unique needs. Alan not only was up for the challenge, but he had fun with it and met all of our wishes and needs (including an ice cream sundae bar). Many members of our family were skeptical of a dairy kosher wedding, but we got tons of compliments on the food and nobody went hungry.

Sarah

Alan’s glatt kosher was wonderful and the service was flawless. All the vendors we selected were recommended by Alan and worked very well with him. We lost power at our synagogue Friday night – as did much of the region – and did not have the new venue until 10:30 Saturday night for a noon wedding on Sunday. Alan handled it all masterfully. You literally would not have known the event was not planned for this venue – unless you were one of the people we called after midnight to inform you of the change in venue.

Steve

Alan and his staff did a wonderful job! I was a little nervous when it came to the cake, but Alan went over the top and even gave my husband his own chocolate cake! The food at the tasting matched what we had at the wedding!

Alison

Thank you for helping us to create a beautiful reception for Lauren’s Bat Mitzvah. The food was delicious – from the hot and fresh apps, to the stations. I don’t know what I would have done without all of your party planning advice. We look forward to working with you for Danna’s Bat Mitzvah in 2015.

Robin

Thank you for providing wonderful service for our wedding. Our guests raved about the food, including the wedding cake, and the service was great. We really feel by selecting you we maximized our value and provided our guests with a top-notch event.

Ben and Halli

Thank you so much for the incredible job you did for the wedding. Guests raved about the food, and even my snobby New York cousins were surprised at how tasty everything was. I appreciated your responsiveness and willingness to accommodate our requests. As I mentioned to you at the event, the vegetarians said it was the best vegetarian dish they’ve been served at a wedding. The food was beautifully displayed, especially the community your info; her daughter is getting married at Beth Sholom in June. Take care and I’ll be in touch when I have a Bris to celebrate.

Harriet

Wow, Rachel and Dan are married almost 60 days and people are still talking about how wonderful the wedding was. I know I thanked you once if not twice BUT THANKS AGAIN AND AGAIN for all of your support and suggestions!! The best complement one can pay, is to use their service again.

Teresa

Thank you so much for all of the amazing work you did to make our wedding day special. From the delicious food to the beautiful room décor, you did so much to help our vision to become a reality. We sincerely appreciate the hard work that went into this event and are happy to recommend your services to friends. Thanks again for everything!

Avi & Lindsey

Once again, I sit here writing a note of thanks to your for an unbelievable event. Sunday evenings Gala for Rabbi Layman was wonderful. The room looked wonderful (please make sure to tell Martha she did an unbelievable job with the center pieces for our gallery hor dourve hour), the staff was great…dressed to the nines, food was delicious and served beautifully, and the dessert bar was delicious and ended out the evening with yummy sweetness, and end to a perfect affair.

But most importantly Alan, thank you again for all your guidance, care, orchestration and love to make this another special event for Shaare Tefila. I heard that the Marshall family (who have four young children…the first to have this BM in a year) are planning on call you for their sons BM…they were quite impressed with the food and service. You are a gem, Alan…a true friend to Hyman, me and our family. We hope to celebrate upcoming family simchas with you (did you notice how cute Chloe and Daniel look…maybe an upcoming wedding soon???)

As always, it was a pleasure working with you on the Gala…you are the Best!!!

Cilla

You were amazing. I enjoyed working with you throughout. Martha is special (she met my every need and then some, most graciously) and the team were outstanding, both the setup with existing shul tables/chairs and the dinner!

The food was great. I cam home ravishing and ate the main dish close to 12am.

Alan, you should be proud of your wonderful service! I wish you every success!

It was a big mitzvah too!

Rochel

We love you so much and want to thank you for making Josie and Russ’s wedding absolutely perfect. The evening was perfect. You two work together like a finely tuned symphony. You calmness and sense of your surroundings amazed me. You seemed to know what needed to be done at every moment. Thank you for taking such good care of Josie. We will forever be grateful for your kindness toward our children. I still can’t believe it’s all over with. I almost don’t know what to do with myself today.

Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart. I love you both.

Lynne

Thank you for providing such a delicious meal for our guests this past weekend. The salmon was fabulous! Martha was terrific and from my vantage point, everything went like clockwork! (even after a slightly late start…) We are so grateful to all our vendors, not the least of which our wonderful caterer, on which so much of a successful event rides! Our heartfelt thanks!

Kevin, Marsha and the “new” Reena and Seth Scoblionko

I just want to thank you a thousand time over for doing such a beautiful job on my events. Everything was fantastic! The kiddish was much admired by the entire congregation – I had many many people ask who catered it with huge complements about how amazing the food was, how beautifully it was presented, and how the staff was so attentive and professional. Or Friday night dinner was exactly as I’d wanted it, very warm and welcoming.

Martha and Jennifer were very easy to work this, so gracious to our guests, and made everything go so smoothly. They totally fit right in! The Saturday night party was also incredible! All weekend long your staff showed grace and professionalism, the food was excellent at every meal. It just couldn’t have been better! Thank you so much!

Tamar

Rena and I wish to take this opportunity to thank you immensely for the extraordinary catering presentation that you were able to achieve during the weekend for the marriage of your children, Samuel and Leslie, at Beth Tfiloh Congregation.

Rena and I continue to receive accolades from our guests concerning the wonderfully delectable hor d’oeuvers, the very tasty and beautifully presented dinners, and the delicious cupcakes.

We know that the extenuating circumstances, due to the devastating storm, make the working conditions very challenging. We appreciate the extreme efforts and the professionalism that you and your staff exhibited to help make the wedding reception so outstanding and memorable for everyone.

You have always had a wonderful reputation. However, a situation such as ours demonstrated to the wider community your talent, commitment, and dedication to your craft and the client. Your sense of perfection went uncompromised under the worst of possible scenarios.

Elliot

Thank you for the wonderful job that you did for our children’s wedding. Everything was excellent! My next Baltimore event will for sure be catered by you.

Irina

“You called the Dessert Plate the “WOW PLATE”. Our Guests said this was a “WOW WEDDING”. We had a PHENOMENAL time and we want to thank you for making it WORRY FREE. The food was delicious and everyone had a lot to eat. All the details were right on the mark. Thank you for all of your help.”

Lorena and Larry

I just wanted to pass along an unsolicited comment someone who attended the wedding at Beth Tefilloh this past Sunday told me. He came over to me and asked me – “you work for the Star-K, do you know who catered the chasuna at Beth Tefilloh this past Sunday? The food was amazing, I have never had such good food at a Baltimore chasuna before.”

Rabbi T.

For all of us this past weekend was entered in the competition for “best ever”! The food and presentations were excellent, exceeding expectations. Alan, as director of the Wedding you did a Great job, everything went so smoothly. Thank you.

Nelson and Helen

Our guests have been raving about the dinner at our daughter’s wedding. The Hors D’oeuvres, the Main Course and the Desserts were delicious. The presentation was beautiful and the service was excellent. Everything was outstanding.

Libby and Michael

With true appreciation and warmest thanks you helped make the fashion show possible and made it the success that it was.

Judi

Hallie is very happy with the decision to work with you, and as for me, there was never any other choice.

Jan

Don and I were very impressed not only with your menu offerings and how delicious everything was, but also with your entire business operation. You offer so much help to your clients and that made planning a simcha so much easier. There is nothing/nobody in Atlanta is like You!!

Fran

I wanted to repeat the conversation that we had at the end of the wedding. Everything that you did for us was SPECTACULAR. I have never had so many compliments about food at a Wedding or Bar-Mitzvah as I did tonight. I truly appreciated the organizational help provided by Ceil, Lisa and the Rest of your staff.

Howard

Don, I just want to thank you again for a wonderful job. My family seemed very pleased and happy and really had a good time. Everything looked lovely and tasted delicious as well. Also, you should know that people really liked the cookies that you had for dessert. Multiple people have complemented how tasty they were.

Sara

The party was fabulous. I have gotten emails and phone calls on how great it was. Everyone loved the food. Your service was perfect. You did a fantastic job! I would be thrilled to be a reference for any of your potential clients. Send as many as you want. I look forward to working with you again in the future.

Ina

We want to thank you very much for doing such a wonderful job for Carly and Jeff’s wedding. You truly helped to make their wedding a dream come true. Carly had this image in her mind since she started working at the Bethesda Marriott as an event manager. The food was delicious, the room was spectacular and your staff was wonderful. Many thanks again.

Shelly and Neal

I want to thank you again for giving us a wonderful wedding for Rachel and Garett. We are still hearing compliments from our guest about how much they enjoyed the food. We were very pleased with the menu and very pleased with the service that day and felt everything went as well as it possibly could, largely thanks to you. In that regard, I also want to thank you for excellent advice throughout the planning process. I appreciated your guidance and your many helpful suggestions. It was a pleasure working with you every step of the way.

Susan

Martha, what can we say? I feel like the Wolfs can’t have any events without you! Thank you for your usual 1000% toward the wedding and all the planning and prep! Thank you for your supervising every detail and thank you for working 24/7 on our behalf!

Faith

I did not want another week to get away from me without thanking you and your staff for the wonderful affair you treated our family to. We have received many compliments about the day and much of them have to do with you. They spoke of the waitstaff and how they took care of not only what they needed, but also what they wanted. I was impressed by how they moved about the room without a sound.

Every detail about the day was perfect. The hors d’oeuvres were tasty and plentiful and passed through the room nicely. The food on the tables were never empty. Many guests talked about how good the food was and were especially pleased with the dessert. I thank you for making the day perfect. I thank you for taking care of all the details, so I did not have to worry about anything that you were directly or indirectly responsible for. It is hard to believe this is my third and final Bar Mitzvah with you, and I really believe each one was better than the last.

Susan

Don, I just wanted to reiterate what I said on the telephone. Everything was just wonderful. The food, the service, the extras that you gave us without hiking up the bill. Your personal presence at the wedding was wonderful, particularly when we lost electricity and you just packed up the food, took it back to your office to warm it and then brought it back to serve the guests. I must say that the chicken was the best tasting I’ve ever had at a big affair, and the cake was really delicious.

There isn’t one thing that wasn’t done well and incredibly professionally.

I want you to feel free to use Donna and me as a reference any time anyone asks you for one. You’ll always get an A+ endorsement from us and from everyone else that was there that evening.

Thanks again for everything.

Martin
