We are so grateful to Dawn’s Catering for making our Thanksgiving so relaxing and delicious! Dawn’s food was excellent, the staff were punctual, professional, polite and extremely hard working. There was great care taken to ensure that everything went smoothly; our guests were very impressed from start to finish (as were we). From setup to clean up – all of our expectations were met and exceeded. We look forward to working with Dawn again!

You catered the party for us in Ho-ho-kus on September 12th. Your food was excellent. Your service was even better. The party was for my mom’s 90th birthday and my friend’s 88th. Everything was seamless. Your staff was professional, unobtrusive and caring. They anticipated the needs of my guests. Everything was seamless. My guests, which totaled almost 100 people, complimented the food and the service. They all said they had a great time and that it was a perfect party and a perfect day.

I know anyone reading this compliment will think it is exaggerated but if they do, you have my permission to give them my contact information.

Not only did Dawn’s Catering provide delicious, fresh food for my daughter’s wedding, but it was served with an upbeat, accommodating, yet unobtrusive elegance. The portions were more than generous and the prices reasonable for the professional quality of the food and services. I would recommend Dawn’s Catering without reservation for any situation.

Hi Dawn,

Thank you for a fabulous party Saturday night!! You and your staff were amazingly professional and made the party run very smoothly. The food was outstanding, the buffet line was quick, the bar was well run and you made it easy for me, which I really appreciate. I will sing your praises all over town and please pass my appreciation on to the amazing servers, especially Shannon, who stood out and really helped out with the keg tap situation.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! It was a pleasure to work with you.

Dawn and Bryan,

There is no better feeling than being guests at our own party! Handing off the food and service to you was the best decision, because in your capable hands, the party was a better success than we’d hoped it would be. You made it seem so easy.

People are still calling to tell us what a great time they had, how much they enjoyed the food and Bryan’s “Nutty Irishman” cocktails. Everything was just so professional and seamless, we definitely have to work together again. We’re so happy to have found you and will recommend you to everyone we know who wants to give a great party.

Thanks again,

Kathleen and Tom McSherry

Dear Dawn,
I have to tell you that our get together for my cousins family was so nice
Because of your absolutely delicious cookings!!!! Everyone loved the food.
One person would say, “oh you have to taste this chicken and cranberry sandwich” or “The shrimp is better than the shrimp up at the Vineyard”

Of course the assorted dessert bars went like hotcakes- very Delicious!

Thank you! Barbara K of Wyckoff

Hi Dawn,
I just wanted to thank you for catering our party on Saturday! Everything turned out
Great. We thank you for your professionalism and for all the time you spent with me working to creat the prefect menu that stayed within our budget. The biggest hit at the party was the pulled pork!


“Just wanted you to know that things went beautifully. Your staff were, as usual, flawless. Everyone raved about the food. Thank you for the fantastic end product.”

“Thank you for the wonderful Christmas dinner served in your very gracious fashion. The meal received many compliments as did you.”

“What a great party!. Thanks so much for the delicious food, and your servers are top notch. Everything was formulated perfectly.”

“Everyone begged me to use only you. Thanks for such a lovely job and your special touch with the Valentine Cookies.”

“Congratulations Dawn for the very tasty and very fresh food. We were very happy with the end results. The evening went very smoothly thanks to your great staff.”

“Everything was amazing. The only problem is now I have to figure out who I can invite over so we can have your great food more often!”

Hi Dawn,

I apologize for my delay in writing to you, but I wanted to express our sincere gratitude to you and the servers for such a lovely event for West Side. We enjoyed working with you, the food was delicious and presentation was wonderful.

The evening was a great success and well attended. Many bids on the catered dinner evening – the winner was Emily Hill (so you are aware when she contacts you) Thank you for not only working with us to provide the catering, but also for your generous donation.

We look forward to working with you again in the future!

Dear Dawn,

Our daughter and her family left on Tuesday, and I’m only now getting a chance to thank you for a wonderful meal on Father’s Day! It was great success and Gerry and I really appreciated your help in allowing us to spend more time with the grandchildren while still being able to host a fun gathering.

We sent some food back with them, so they wanted to thank you too! We’ll be sure to be in touch with you in the future. In the meantime, thanks again and all the best to you and your family.
