Working with Colleen and her team was fantastic. They were very professional and made planning the catering a breeze. My guests were very complimentary of all of the food. It tasted fantastic. The staff was attentive and provided great service on the day of the wedding. Colleen was very helpful in working with us to get some of our special desserts to the wedding, and set them up beautifully. Thank you, Colleen!

What a wonderful experience to work with Ridgewell Catering. There attention to detail is exceptional. I knew we were in good hands when we attended the tasting. The presentation was beyond! Our guest raved about the food-delicious. Once you book with Ridgewell sit back and enjoy your event because there is nothing to worry about. Colleen Walsh, Senior Event Designer, has to be one of the best in the business because I can't imagine anyone better. Thank you, Ridgewell, for making my daughter's wedding a magical event.

I had worked with Eileen and Ridgewells for work years ago and knew I wanted to work with them on my wedding day! I can't thank them enough!!! We got so many compliments on the food and how wonderful and attentive your staff was! I truly appreciate your attention to detail, especially around my dietary restrictions and my mom's food preferences. You made my day extra special. Thank you so much!

We initially looked into Ridgewells because they had been the caterers at my parents' wedding thirty years ago, and we quickly found out why they are still consistently considered one of the best caterers in the Washington, D.C. area. Everything was delicious, and all of the details were perfect. The food was so on point that our steaks were cooked medium rare even on the day of our wedding - just like they were at the tasting. We also had a raw bar with oysters, crab claws, and shrimp that served as the focal point of our cocktail hour, and people are still bringing up how fresh everything tasted. Ridgewells also provided our cake, which people said was the best wedding cake they'd ever had. The service we received in the days leading up to our wedding and on the day of was also just extraordinary. We worked with Grace, who not only promptly responded to emails (of which there were many) but also went back and forth with us over every possible detail we could imagine: from switching up the options based on what kinds of food we enjoyed to the color of the table cloths to the type of glassware that our signature cocktail would be served in. She helped us stay calm, especially in the days leading up to the wedding, and could troubleshoot issues for us before they even became a problem. The Ridgewells team is without a doubt exceptional in every way.

Great Caterer! Ridgewells and their coordinator, Maggie, did a fantastic job for us. The food was everything we wanted it to be and tasted just as delicious as it did when we did our tasting. The staff on site were extremely professional and very accommodating. When we did our tasting, Maggie was extremely well prepared to talk with us about all of our options and was always quick to provide some alternatives if we were looking for options. We didn’t even think of having a “signature drink” but Maggie has us try an apple cider for our fall wedding that I never stop getting compliments on. It’s almost six months after our wedding and we still have guests ask us about the recipe! Our venue was a winery so we had to use our own wine from the winery – Ridgewells didn’t skip a beat and even worked with us to make sure that our rehearsal dinner, while on the same property, had a totally different feel than the wedding (they catered both events).

The catering services from Ridgewells were exceptional! Our experience working with Colleen was an absolute joy. Our venue was at a vineyard and we wanted to do a wine tasting with appetizer pairing during cocktail hour, Colleen perfectly suggested what to pair with what wines and it came out perfectly. For our entree with chose a dual entree of flat iron steak and bronzino, everything was delicious. The food was even better at the wedding than at the tasting. So many people came up to us and told us this was the best food they had had at a wedding, and we agree! Every detail from the drinks passed out after the ceremony to the late night snacks at the end of the night was perfection.

The food was absolutely delicious and the service was top notch. Meghan from Ridgewells was much more than a caterer -- She was my wedding fairy godmother.

Ridgewells did an excellent job with the rentals and service for our wedding and were willing to work with the private chef we hired to make sure the entire event was absolutely seamless.

Let me start by saying that you should not avoid Ridgewells thinking they are the most expensive choice in town. I had to say that first because honestly, that's what I had heard and expected. I'm glad I checked with them. It turns out, they were less than everyone else we talked to! I will also say that you should believe everything you've heard about how great Ridgewells' catering is. We had them cater a party held at our house after our wedding reception. This was a tough one for us - some guests were coming from the wedding (i.e., they were already well-fed) and others who probably wanted to eat dinner. Maggie from Ridgewells took this into account along with a not-so-narrow estimate of the number of guests (60-80) and came up with the perfect menu. The hors d'oeuvres and desserts Maggie suggested were scrumptious and were far more creative than what the competition had offered. The amount of food Maggie estimated was perfect. All of the guests got what they wanted and we had a small amount of leftovers, which was a great thing because we were too busy talking with everyone to have time to try everything. The staff from Ridgewells was professional and really knew their stuff. Due to the timing, we couldn't be at the house when Ridgewells arrived. We had a friend let them in and show them a few basic things. They took it from there and set everything up nicely. Even better, there was absolutely nothing for us to clean up after they left. Thanks, Ridgewells. We'll be back! (Or, should I say, you'll be back. ;)

Ridgewells was flawless, as was Talia Moyher, our coordinator, who provided priceless peace of mind. We had a number of roadblocks to overcome,: changing venues, a variety of food allergies and preferences, access and timing limits, and all the other stressful challenges of planning a wedding. Talia met every challenge with a choice of solutions and her calm professionalism. We woke up on the morning of 'The Wedding' knowing that all would be taken care of...and it was! We had a fabulous time in no small thanks to all that Ridgewells did to make it a success. Our guests raved about the food and the service ( thank you also to Diana and Roberto!), which was impeccable. When we had a last minute 'emergency' during hors d'oeuvres, once again, Talia and Ridgewells took care of it. We have only rarely found an organization that we would have such high praise for, but Ridgewells deserves it. They were worth every penny.

There aren't enough words to describe how happy me and my family were with Ridgewells. The food, presentation, staff, decor - Everything was amazing. I owe it ALL to my incredibly talented and PATIENT event designer, Polly Ernst, who guided us through what could have been a very stressful event! Her suggestions were always spot-on (and so creative) and never once did I feel pressured to spend more than my budget or have a traditional, sit-down dinner. I wanted to do something out of the box and Polly made my dream wedding come to life! I got married at the Decatur House in DC and had a cocktail-style wedding reception instead of a formal dinner. I was nervous about how it would all turn out but Polly encouraged me to go with my vision and she executed it seamlessly! My guests raved about the food and they kept going back for more - mini crabcake sandwiches, risotto, beef short ribs - yum, yum yum!!! And I have to mention the staff- who were so polite, professional and accommodating to all of my guests. One of my favorite parts of the night was when we returned to our wedding suite. Polly had arranged for the leftovers to be waiting for me and my husband in perfect little boxes... So incredibly thoughtful. We had the best time eating the DELICIOUS leftovers and re-hashing the wedding the next day. THANK YOU THANK YOU Ridgewells and Polly!!!

Ridgewell's did an amazing job, setting the whole venue up beautifully and within 2 hours. Rachel took great initiative, worked with us on an optimal design for the event, and made it happen. All staff were very professional, and completely unobtrusive as they shuttled replenishment food to the buffet table, snapped up dirty dishes & glasses, and then cleaned everything up and moved out when it was over. Ah, but the food! Best salmon I've ever had, all dishes very yummy and healthy, and everyone raved.
