Hi Neil and Emily – I just wanted to thank you again for such a wonderful evening. You entire team was spectacular and helped make the evening perfect. The food was fabulous, the service was excellent and the dessert was beyond anything I could have imagined. You truly exceeded my expectations and Sunday morning brunch was just as amazing! Thanks again, Michelle and Jason

Dear Neil – I do not even know where to begin to thank you for the most wonderful and memorable wedding I could have ever imagined. You made it such a positive experience from start to finish. The minute we decided to use you I felt so relieved and knew that it would be a beautiful event. I never realized, however, just how beautiful it would be. You are not just a caterer preparing the food, you made the whole evening one to remember forever. From the Ketubah signing to the bedeken to the ceremony to the cocktail hour to the reception and finally to the after party, not a detail was overlooked. The room was unbelievably beautiful and the food was indescribably delicious. My only regret is that I was floating on a cloud the entire night and do not think I had an opportunity to taste all of the food you provided. (I did taste the mac n’ cheese which was delicious). I continue to get phone calls from guests telling me that they have never seen such a variety and such a quantity of food at any affair they have attended and that it was the most delicious food they have eaten. Emily was fabulous, attending to whatever we needed and always with a smile. She helped me immensely that night with various situations. All of your staff was wonderful and a pleasure to work with. Please extend my thanks and gratitude to all of them. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for making Adam and Elana’s wedding such a wonderful experience and a night to remember forever. I truly hope that I will have an opportunity to work with you again in the future and you can be sure I will recommend you to any one who asks. Sincerely, – Robin and Amir Kanel

Dear Neil – Saying thank you for making our wedding a special event would not be enough. We have received rave reviews from everybody who attended.  The food was incredible, the creativity of the dishes was unique, and the attention to detail was very impressive. Some of the comments included, “every time I turned around, my glass was refilled” and “every aspect of the cocktail hour and dinner was over the top.”  The cocktail hour and hors d’oeuvres were so outrageous that some people didn’t realize that there was still dinner and dancing to follow.  The martini bar was fabulous especially the coconut martinis that your bartender said he made for the first time that night.  The dessert plate was beyond what we could have imagined after all the other amazing food, especially the chocolate covered grapes. The groom’s cake was exceptional and certainly a hit with all of our guests.  We need that recipe! (Seriously can we please have it?) We would especially like to thank you for being so understanding and patient with all of the changes that we had to make as the wedding date approached. Your demeanor, personality, and professionalism make VIP Caterers exceptional. Warm regards — Lorie and Jeff Hertz

“I can’t say enough about VIP Caterers and the outstanding job they did for my son Louis’s bar mitzvah. As soon as my husband Eric and I met Neil, we knew we were in the hands of a seasoned professional who cared deeply about providing quality service, delicious food, creativity and class to our event. Thanks to Neil’s culinary creations and professionalism, planning the bar mitzvah was an easy, pleasant process. Emails and calls were answered immediately, day or night. Neil truly “catered” to our wishes, tailoring our event to create the dining experience and atmosphere we wanted. On the day of the bar mitzvah, he was there to oversee that everything was perfect. And it was! From the caviar and elegant hors d’oeuvres during our cocktail hour to the courses served throughout the reception, both the flavor and presentation were flawless. Many of our guests commented to us that the food and service were excellent, the best they had ever experienced at a bar mitzvah. We have to agree. Thank you Neil and the VIP team for helping us make Louis’s bar mitzvah a five-star event!” — Debbie Fischer

“My caterer, Neil Wasserman of VIP Catering in Boca Raton, was beyond anything I could have ever even hoped for! He was personable, funny, laid back, understanding, and extremely patient. Any man daring enough to move forward after an initial meeting with myself, my mom, and my mother-in-law speaks volumes in itself! Not only did Neil put up with my late night texts, frantic phone calls, high maintenance meetings, and real life day-of drama, he did it gracefully AND made it look easy!! Neil and his staff won over the hearts of our family and the bellies of our guests and I would without hesitation recommend VIP Catering to anyone looking for nothing short of fabulous!” — Carly & Darren Odesnik | July 2011 | Shabby Chic Wedding Article

“Dear Neil – Now that all of our family has left and we are coming down from our high, I just want to say WOW. The Wedding for Rabbi Bloch, our daughter was truly amazing in every way. From the Valet parking, to the Red coat doormen, the magnificent array of hordoerves, the personal escort service to our tables, the choreographed French service. WoW. Everyone is comparing it to the Royal Wedding, just on a slightly smaller scale. At any rate, my husband and I thank you from the bottom of hearts for making this such a wonderful memorable occasion for all who atternded. Thanks again!” — Flo and Lucky (Louis) Bloch | August 2011

“Neil – Just wanted to let you know how great the Fischer’s Bar Mitzvah was this past weekend. You did an incredible job. Thank you for helping us make it a success. Thanks! — Bonnie Reiver, A Special Favor | August 2011

“There are no words that I can express for my appreciation. Your talent, as a caterer, you displayed with excellence! The night had it’s challenges, yet, you took each situation with care and accomplished! I was confident because of your knowledge, there were no issues. Your coordination for the evening was handled with only someone like yourself of great experience! Thank you for your excellence of understanding how each part of the night needed to flow and meeting each of its challenges. With great appreciation and forever grateful.” — Phyllis Baron Rabin, Mother of Dr. Dawn and Mr. Lewis Cottler | October 2010

“Just a note to tell you that VIP was totally and completely AWESOME for Alexis’ Bat Mitzvah! Neil went above and beyond to deliver great service, delicious and varied food choices at a fair price. VIP and Neil are the reason that our temple has such a terrific reputation in the community for wonderful catering! Just thought I’d pass along some of the good karma that he gave to me and my family last weekend! Thanks for all of your help as well!” — Best Regards, Sigrid Feder | May 2011

“Neil – from the moment I walked into your office, (after having just found out that my other destination had gone bankrupt), you made me feel at ease. You were understanding, sincere and obliging. Your calm disposition made me feel comfortable to deal with you, and also made me eager to work with you. I know I am not the easiest person to work with, as my type A personality can sometimes be challenging for people, however, I was quick to figure out that we have similar personalities and things will only be acceptable if they are done right! My function was all done just right! You were there for me every step of the way and there was no call or concern that you didn’t want to know about or deal with. The food was beyond my expectations and my guests have been raving about it ever since. I want to come back as a guest so that I can actually eat the food myself!! I loved the service and your waitress/waiter staff were amazing. (I even had guests comment on how wonderful the staff was to them). On behalf of my entire family I would like to thank you for everything, and look forward to seeing you for other occasions in the future!” — Rona Wolfe | May 2011

“Neil – I just wanted to thank you and your staff for the professionalism shown at Jesse and Tovah’s wedding reception a few weeks ago. We were very impressed with the food and service and enjoyed the special evening very much. In addition, I wanted to thank you also for the delicious Passover Seder which we were very fortunate to have catered by VIP Caterers. Again the variety and taste of the food was top notch. The tender brisket was a particular hit along with the best chocolate Pesach dessert I have ever eaten. We all marveled at how something so tasty can be Kosher for Pesach! Thank you for making it effortless for us this year after celebrating such a simcha for Jesse and Tovah. We do appreciate all your help.” — Dave Agler | May 2011
