“The Mini Meal cocktail party was a huge hit!  I can’t thank you enough for the recommendation. Everyone raved about all the food and your staff! Even my picky 12 year old tried everything and loves the Lobster Mac and cheese and she hates fish!   The Lobster Mac and Cheese, the Filet Mignon and the Buffet was all anyone talked about all night!  We probably could have stopped food 2 hrs in since it was so much.

All the table linens are washed and hung dry in my basement and now in a bag ready for tomorrow’s pick up.  I believe they left some bar/ buffet stuff/unopened plates and utensils behind as well that I packed up.

I’m pretty sure I’ll never do another party without you guys!   I’ve got a few over the next few years. “

“Dear Rich, Mike and Donna,
I can’t believe it’s been a month since our party and I wanted to thank you all so much! The catering was fabulous! Everyone enjoyed the menu from the antipasto platter to the eggplant parm & sausage and peppers! Everything was delicious! Loved the pea medley and the Caeser salad too! The chicken thighs were yummy! What wasn’t finished at the party some folks took home. Truly, I can’t tell you how wonderful the food was. The setup and breakdown went smoothly. I forgot the gentleman’s name, but he was so nice as well.”
Thank you,
Randi Mack & Mike Gonnella
 

“I wanted to let you know what a success my daughter’s Lori post wedding breakfast/brunch turned out to be. The food was delicious; but, I had no doubt about that. Mark did a wonderful job with the set up and break down. Everyone said how much they enjoyed the food.  
 
Thank you for being such a pleasure to work with. I will be sure to give Twin Oaks a great review on your website.  I am so glad my friend, Robin, recommended Twin Oaks to me. I wish you all the best in the years to come. Stay safe. “
Fondest Regards,

“I would like to thank you and your terrific staff for making my party for my son’s ordination to the Priesthood an unbelievable event.  I knew I had to leave every detail up to Twin Oaks because I wasn’t able to take control of anything.  They did such an amazing job.  I was so impressed by the staff.  Mike was so accommodating – he offered suggestions and helped me with the menu selections.  But above all the food was delicious.  This was the first time I had catered food that was so tasty.  Everyone raved about it. Thank you again and I will definitely use and also recommend Twin Oaks in the future.”
Thank you again,

“As usual, the food was tremendous! Everyone was raving, just like at the gender reveal you catered. The only reason there was some food left over, is bc we had 8 adults who didn’t show last minute. But everyone went back 2-3 times. The pulled pork, broccoli, and stuffed chicken were the real stars. My husband’s Italian family went to the Sausage & Peppers first. So for them to go back & fill their plates the second times around with chicken and broccoli! That spoke volumes lol. We can’t wait to have you cater another event, or just order from you again for a smaller occasion. Thank you for making our daughter’s 1st birthday party such a success!”

Thank you,

“Your team was FANTASTIC!  Rich was super helpful and was spot on with everything – even through our very last minute changes (moving the bar!).  He took the time to listen to the game plan and understand what we were hoping to make happen, and ask questions when they arose and never flustered.  And Denise was absolutely delightful when interacting with the guests – she’s definitely a keeper!  And please forgive me for not remembering the name of one of your other servers (Blonde hair – maybe “Sandy”?) – she was also super pleasant!  You guys really made the event extra special.  Everyone commented on the food and presentation – really great job! 
 
Thank you again for everything and jumping through hoops to get there earlier than we had discussed to make it all happen! Truly appreciate everything!”

“Hi Mike and Donna –
I am writing to compliment your establishment for it’s service, delicious food and friendly staff.   Our friends and family thoroughly enjoyed the delicious food from Twin Oaks!  Every dish was amazing and the Italian Sushi was a huge hit!  Also, I would like to commend your wait staff, Denise and Anneliesse for their wonderful service. They both were very professional, attentive, friendly and helped make our special occasion even that more special.  I was able to enjoy the day knowing that they had everything so well organized.  Thank you again and I most certainly plan on using Twin Oaks to cater our parties in the future.”

“We hosted a party this past weekend and purchased your “All American BBQ” package. I am writing to tell you what a phenomenal job your servers did and how wonderful the food was. The three workers you sent were extremely efficient, friendly, and helpful. They went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed at all times. They kept each food item fully stocked at all times. People were raving about the food and how delicious it was. Were extremely satisfied overall and very grateful to our workers. Thank you all so much for helping us make our day that much more enjoyable.”

“I just wanted to thank the staff and chefs who helped make my party a great success. The food was delicious and plentiful! All the guests complimented the food and said they would definitely use you guys when the occasion arose. Every person I dealt with at Twin Oaks was professional, friendly and helpful. I will, and have, highly recommend Twin Oaks!”

“Mine was a small order 2 medium platters, cheese and grape platter and Italian Sushi (Thin breaded eggplant, roasted pepper, mozzarella, prosciutto). There was plenty of cheese nicely decorated. But the pièce de résistance was the Italian Sushi, I didn’t know what to expect I was pleasantly pleased a thousand percent. All the ingredients were rolled inside the eggplant which were cut up into bite size pieces with a bowl of balsamic glaze in the middle for dipping. The Sushi was the hit of the appetizer table. I know what I’ll be bringing from now to any party. I just want to thank everyone at Twin Oaks for doing such a beautiful job, and for treating me as if I put a order in for 500 people. I will be back”

“I just want to thank you very much for catering my son’s first Birthday twice in the past month! The service you provide is amazing, ordering is easy, food is delicious (got lots of compliments about food from diverse guests groups)! You made the process stress less for me. It means a lot given that I have a 1 year old that requires lots of attention. I’m planning on using your service for my future events as well.”

“For yet another year we have dazzled over 500 participants at our Pest Management Annual clam bake. I believe this was my 32nd, and year after year you guys deliver the goods which send people home with full bellies and good memories. Please know how much we appreciate your being there with us for all these years. Thursday was yet another classic illustration of teamwork, efficiency and downright good eating, myself included. On behalf of all of us here in the office, thanks for a great execution and our best wishes for a successful year ahead. We look forward to you serving us.”

“I want to thank you for making my husband’s surprise 60th birthday party a day both of us, as well as our guests, will fondly remember. Your professionalism and expertise in setting up my yard made the place just breathtaking. I’ve never thrown a party before where I didn’t even have to enter the kitchen (except to eat) and have things run so smoothly. My guests have told me numerous times how beautiful everything looked not to mention how delicious the food was. Not only was the food top notch, the presentation was wonderful. Please feel free to call anytime you need a glowing reference. Again, hat’s off to you for a job well done!”
Patty (Surprise 60th Birthday)

“Dear Mike, Just wanted to say Thank You for everything. The appetizers were a big hit, everyone loved the wild rice w/ apricots and almonds. You have been very kind and really made the effort to help me with venues and extended yourself beyond what others would have done. I thank you for that and I hope to use your services on an ongoing basis. I will and have recommended you for catering services already.”
Sincerely,
Persis (appetizer pick up)

“Just a note of thanks for the outstanding job your employees did at our year end picnic, this past Monday. The picnic was a tremendous success. Our faculty is still complimenting us on the quality of the food and the outstanding service provided. We are looking forward to having Twin Oaks Caterers, for next years end of the year party. Once again on behalf of the administrator, faculty and staff at Dickinson High School, we would like to say thanks for a delightful experience.”

“My husband and I were married on June 27th at the Log Cabin and Pavilion at Rutgers Gardens. From the beginning, we wanted an elegant but affordable outdoor event to celebrate our Marriage. After our initial meeting with Mike and a tasting at Twin Oaks, we were sold on the quality of the food, but as we worked with Twin Oaks over the course of several months, we were continually impressed. Twin Oaks was far more than just a caterer to us. Mike helped me to think of and organize many details of the wedding that I would have otherwise forgotten., responding expeditiously to any questions or requests I had. Even before our wedding day, I was extremely pleased with the service I had received from Twin Oaks.

On the day of our wedding, my husband arrived early to help set up. Rich and his team of staff had already set up all of the tables and chairs for the reception. We left our table signs and a “sample” centerpiece- which consisted of a floral piece and wine glasses that needed to be filled with water for a floating candle to be placed inside- with Twin Oaks, and they assembled these perfectly for us. The tables looked beautiful and elegant; everything was magnificent.

The service during cocktail hour and dinner was nothing less than exceptional. Rich offered to serve the head table a sampler of food; the bartender, having seen a cork board we’d made to correspond with our “wine” them, saved each cork from wine he opened during the reception; and the staff was friendly and courteous. We received numerous compliments on the food; more than a few of our guests told us this was the best wedding food they had ever had, including my uncle who recently retired from a lifetime career in the Hotel and Restaurant industry.

We wanted to thank everyone at Twin Oaks for all your help in making our wedding day perfect. It was thanks to you that everything went off without a hitch. I would not hesitate to contract Twin Oaks again for my future catering needs and would highly recommend them for any event. Our experience with Twin Oaks was wonderful.

Thank you so much for the great food and the incredible service.”
