Alison and David Sternberg Wedding , Sydney
Thank you for everything on our wedding day. We had the most wonderful time. Your skill, creativity, experience and superb care were appreciated not just by us but by everyone at the wedding. Setting up such perfect arrangements through negotiations with us situated half a world away until just the last minute, was a huge but totally successful achievement. We really appreciated your ideas and suggestions. It all worked so well. Your team were superb; courteous, unobtrusive, smiling and friendly, keeping everyone looked after and attended to. What a superb operation! I know it was hard work for your team but the food was delicious....the scallops, prawns, the spring rolls, the main meals and salads, the chocolate 'orgasms'......all super.

Michelle , Sydney
had the best time!! The food was fabulous –mmmm yummmmm!!! So many people commented on the food – as it wasn’t just the ‘normal’ finger food – just what I wanted, plus there was plenty of it. You were right when you told me ‘nobody leaves my functions hungry”. Jess, Annemette & Ray were so great, lovely people and very professional – they are a credit to you and your company. Thank you so much for helping make my night so special – I (and a no. of my guests) will certainly be recommending you Michele Hawkins, Michelles 40th Birthday Party
Jennifer , Sydney
Just wanted you to know that my husband and I were so very impressed with the service provided by Catering By Design at our friend, Lynne Hindes, birthday last week. From the moment Ray and Jess arrived everything went so smoothly. I was amazed at how they were able to organise themselves in a fairly limited space and never had to ask a question! Their presentation, willingness to please and smiles were appreciated by all. The food was delicious. The whole thing was extremely professional. Ray and Jess - Well Done! To you and congratulations on providing a wonderful service! Kind regards Jennifer Coram-Pigott, Lynne Hindes 50th Birthday Part
Catherine , Sydney
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU Your staff were punctual, pleasant, clean, courteous, charming; in a word, professional. Well chosen. Sooo many compliments on the food! When people realised [very quickly] that the event was catered, there were lots of referrals for your business. Hope something good comes of it for you! I will also recommend you in the future. What I liked the most was that I didn’t have to clean up anything afterwards!” Hmm and did I remember to thank you for a great day?! Catherine Somervaille

“Catering By Design did an exceptional job planning and delivering at our Wedding and Reception. Their approach was full of positive energy and the various suggestions she made not only illustrated her experience they also contributed largely to making the day for Kerry, myself and our family and friends a day we will remember and treasure.” Peter and Kerry Bowler, Wedding
Sasha , Collaroy
What a party! The food was excellent, the staff were superb, the cocktails supreme and the chocolate fountain, well it was sublime. My 40th in my own house was superior to any party or function I have been to in any 5 star restaurant thanks largely to Catering By Design” Sasha Holley, 40th Birthday Party
Sabine , Bilgola Surf club
"Catering By Design offers so much more than a catering service, thet offers complete event management. They have an astounding network of contacts, are highly creative, masterful problem solvers and deliver incredibly tasty food! Throughout the planning stages and our wedding day itself, Catering By Design took care of everything with utter professionalism, warmth and caring. We were exceedingly fortunate to find Catering By Design and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again or recommend them to family and friends!" Sabine Maertin, Wedding
