Catering was by far the biggest expense for the wedding, and so we wanted to be sure to go with the right vendor. We were thoroughly pleased to have selected Purple Onion as our caterer. Alison was wonderful to work with, incredibly responsive and accommodating of our requests, and highly organized so we were confident she was on top of it all. She was also great about coming up with creative ideas on presentation for the food. We truly felt that she was willing to work with us to ensure the food at our wedding was reflective of our style and tastes. Their customer service was excellent, which we did not experience with other caterers we reviewed bids from. Although we had coordinated much of the menu and details prior to the wedding, the day of our wedding, we were still pleasantly surprised by the final touches and presentation of it all. Most importantly, their food was delicious, but they also provided top-notch service throughout the evening, making sure we had everything we wanted to take home with us packed up. Highly recommended overall.

We chose Purple Onion to cater our wedding and everything was so great! We worked with Joanie who helped us every step of the way with planning and coordinating. The Purple Onion staff really went above and beyond our expectations! We were able to deliver a lot of our reception items and decorations ahead of time to their building and they took care of the rest! (Talk about convenient!) The food was fantastic and all of our guests loved it! Joanie planned our menu and came up with some really awesome things that were all a huge hit with our guests. I would highly recommend using Purple Onion for any event! I hope to have a need for catering in the future so I can use them again!

Purple Onion was wonderful and made our day so special. Katy was so pleasant to work with and she really went above and beyond to make our day just perfect!! I work in the industry and come into contact with vendors of all walks of life, Katy and Purple Onion from start to finish were some of the best from my experience! Katy was organized and has a great eye for decor. That is not my strong point and I explained what I was looking for and it was like Katy read my mind! She even went the extra mile and during our ceremony it began to drizzle, so she helped move our gifts and guest book into the tent, along with help move our Ketubah (jewish wedding contract) so that it wouldn't get ruined! I cannot say enough nice things about Katy and Purple Onion. Thank you so much!

Purple Onion was a great choice. We had over 5 tastings around the DC metro area and contacted 20 plus caterers for pricing and menu's. In the end it was Joanie w/Purple Onion who proved to be the tie breaker. She brings passion, energy, creativity and knowledge not to mention she stayed w/in budget. A week before the wedding we decided our late night snack of grilled cheese and tomato soup was to warm for August. She quickly switched up to grilled cheese and milk shakes w/a cute straw.

I can't recommend Purple Onion highly enough! I used them for my mid-November 2011 wedding and was thrilled with everything. From our first meeting with Bernadette, we knew they were the right choice! She took care of everything, from suggesting an appropriate salad based on our entree choices to taking care of our glassware rental, Bernadette was wonderful. And...the food! Oh, it was absolutely delicious and people are still talking about it. The service was also great and extremely professional. We also used the Purple Onion for our wedding cake. Many many people stated to me that it was the most delicious wedding cake they had ever tasted...instead of the usual, dry wedding cake, this was moist and just wonderful. Highly recommend!!!

We worked with Joanie for our wedding reception, and we're so happy we decided to go with Purple Onion. They fit our budget and the food was high quality with great presentation. They were very accommodating, ordering linens from other companies just to see if they'd match our color scheme and letting us do a wine tasting in the week before the wedding. All of our guests enjoyed the meal very much.

I can't say enough about this caterer. The food was absolutely amazing and I felt like our tastes were well represented. Bernadette was more than just a caterer, she was a coordinator and friend. She made sure we were well taken care of and everyone was in the right place at the right time. I had no stress because I knew they would take care of anything and everything. The entire staff was absolutely awesome and attentive to us and our guests. I would 100% recommend Purple Onion for any event.

We were delighted to have Purple Onion Catering Company provide food for our wedding receptoin. We worked specifically with Joanie Rylander, who was amazing. From our first meeting with her, she is a true professional with great attention to detail. We had a fall theme to our wedding, and Joanie made wonderful suggestions on table linens and china to match our colors as well as designed beautiful fall themed menu cards and table cards with framed leaf cutouts. Whenever I had a question, Joanie was easily reachable via email or telephone. She catered events at the Carnegie Institution before so she was very familiar with the venue and had helpful suggestions for where to place the bar, food, etc. The food was incredible and all of our guests raved about how delicious it was. The staff at Purple Onion was amazing as well. Beacause my husband and I walked around during dinner visiting tables, Purple Onion made sure there were warm plates ready to eat later in the night for us. They packed up all leftovers and made sure each guest had everything he or she needed as far as beverages and food went. We are so thankful to Joanie and Purple Onion for helping make our wedding reception so wonderful.

I recently got married and my parents selected the Purple Onion for our wedding. The Purple Onion was fantastic from the beginning, both my husband and I attended a taste testing and the food was amazing. Bernadette Mimna was wonderful in working with both my husband and I, as well as my parents to ensure everyone was happy. The wedding itself was fantastic from the cocktail hour to the reception. The food was amazing and everything was served on time. All my guests told me after how wondeful the food was. I would highly recommend the Purple Onion to other couples, or to anyone needing a catered event.

We don't know where to begin with the good things to say about this company. From the frequent comments from our guests: "This is the best food that I've ever had at a wedding." to Bernadette's professionalism, flexibility, and caring. We will recommonded Purple Onion without hesitation (and without even being asked) to any of our friends in the future.
