"Thank you again for your help with Danielle's Bat Mitzvah on 4/8/17.

We just wanted to reach out to you and let you know about our experience using Carey Gross as our caterer.
When we began this process, we didn't know anything about any of the Temple's preferred caterers. We didn't have any friends who had a party at the Temple and therefore didn't have anyone to reach out to, to pave the way for us. Fortunately, a friend from a neighboring town had a friend who had a party there and she was very helpful to us and highly recommended Carey. We now seem to be the ones leading the way for our friends who will be having Bar/Bat Mitzvahs in the next few years!

Carey Gross was basically recommended to us by a "stranger", basically a blind recommendation . I called around to a few of the preferred caterers, and although everyone was wonderful, helpful and nice, Carey stood out above the rest.
From our very first conversation, we hit it off and she couldn't have been more of a pleasure to work with. We really went into all this planning as "deer in headlights". Not only did Carey help us with all the catering, she was helpful with room layout, decor etc ... She asked us questions and brought ideas to us that we wouldn't have otherwise thought of. Most importantly, we never felt that she was trying to up sell us and she "got us" from the beginning and understood that we wanted our party to be great but needed to keep costs down where necessary. She was incredibly honest, patient, approachable and reliable. She truly held my hand through the whole process.

Carey knows what she is doing and it shows. Her staff was delightful and professional as well. And the food was outstanding! A week and a half later, people are still raving about it!

If any family is thinking about using Carey and needs a recommendation, please send them our way. We would be happy to help."

All the best,
Kim and Sidney


"You've done it again! You always make me look so good!

Thank you so much for helping with the rehearsal dinner....everything was delicious and beautiful. We were so happy to have you share in another special family occasion. From the moment of the initial call to the clean up after the event, you always create a delicious menu, presentation, and service that is appreciated by all. I love how you move through my kitchen with ease and make the evening flow with yummy food and friendly service. Everyone commented on you and your staff and enjoyed seeing you again....you are like family.

The menu selection, which I rely on you to help with, was fabulous! Not easy, considering the dietary restrictions due to allergy and tastes! The flank steak was cooked to perfection, the salmon and accompanied dill dip was delicious, the rice pilaf a family favorite, and the sugared asparagus and watermelon salad were wonderful. Needless to say, we always love your chocolate mousse! The chocolate and peanut butter cookies were greeted with happiness....a now new favorite that will be added next time!

My new extended family was so impressed with everything, and they are people that know and enjoy good food. The evening was a huge success and was enjoyed by all. I couldn't have done it without you!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!"


"I just wanted you to know that I am another happy customer. The party was a huge success, thanks to you and my kids complimented me on a job well done. My job was selecting you. You did the rest."


"THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR DOING AN EXCEPTIONAL JOB on Saturday at Lindsay's Bat Mitzvah. The food was wonderful and everyone has been emailing/texting (not calling) about how perfect and lovely our Kiddush at the Temple turned out! I also appreciate everything you did for our Sunday brunch at home. It is true that I didn't have to lift a finger and everything was perfect. You are the best!!! THANK YOU!"
