Reviews

Stefanie was such a huge help! Everything was smooth, she helped us find ways to cut costs and advocated for us with our venue.

Catering By Seasons exceeded my expectation. I used them for a brunch at my house after my son’s bar mitzvah. The level of professionalism along with their responsiveness made me feel at ease right away.

Catering by Seasons is great! We booked them for our wedding. Stephanie was so great with working with us on our desired budget.
