Encore Catering catered my daughter's Sweet16 at Kean University. We had about 80 High School students and 20 close family members. I contacted Encore on 12/3/18 and almost every business day until 5/10/19 I was in constant contact with Caitlin. Cait worked well with the facility manager @Kean and was very patient with a mother who had constant demands from her teenage daughter. She provided me sample menus and we altered, added and amended down to the very day of the event. The display of food was like art work. The staff was professional from their attire to their smiles and helpful hands. I was very nervous when she wasn't scheduled to be at the event, but she sent me an angel, Head Server Tim. He has an eye for anticipating your needs before you make a request. I had two elderly grandmothers present and he pampered them like it was their birthday party. He was simply a delight to work with, which made the cost of the service "priceless." One last thing to add, I was soo busy hosting the party that I wasn't able to sit down and eat at dinner or cocktail hour; But at the end of the night Head Server Tim packed up the food with a special goody bag for me, which I enjoyed at home late that night. ENCORE IS THE BEST !! Thank you, Cait and Tim. More...

This company is fantastic! I booked Encore for my moms 60th birthday party and all my guests were raving about how delicious the food was. Cait made such fantastic recommendations and was super attentive and helpful with planning and ordering appropriate portions. I will definitely order from Encore again! More...

I had some VIPs coming to my office last minute. I wasn't able to call in the order until Saturday before Labor Day (for that very next Tuesday! ). My usual two places were closed - either for weekend or the holiday - and everyone was kind of tired of their menus anyway but I panicked! I checked on Yelp for catering in near my office and Encore appeared with good reviews. The wonderful Susan answered the phone (even though they were closed for the day) and took my order no problem! She was super nice and helped me plan out a great Executive Lunch (The Hot and Cold Sampler Menu) so it had a little bit of everything. Choice of some sandwiches, with 2 hot dishes, salads, cookies and fruit.Order was delivered on time and everything was set up for me. The guests and my employees really enjoyed it. I will definitely call them again when the need arises. More...

The food is delicious! Very authentic French taste. We had the succulent Seared Prawns and the mussels, tasty and fragrant, while the chicken is soft and melt in the mouth, and the pork ribs incredibly tender.
Chef Aaron to our surprise is young and friendly. Excellent services! The staff are so friendly and warm. We will definitely come back here if we visit Canada again!

Encore is the best of the best!  Susan was patient and helpful every step of the way when planning our wedding.  She listened to what we wanted and was able to give us an incredible menu for a reasonable price.  The attention to detail from EVERYONE at Encore should not go unnoticed.  Our tasting was personalized and intimate.  The quality of food is outstanding.  We never once had to worry about the catering.  Day of the wedding, my venue DROPPED THE BALL.  To say that Encore saved the day would be an understatement.  They went above and beyond (i.e. cleaning tables and dealing with the venue).  There was never a lack of food.  People were raving about it.  The waitstaff was friendly and so incredibly hard working.I can not say enough fabulous things about Encore. Start to finish amazing. I will forever use them for every party and I could not recommend them enough. More...

Look no further for an event caterer.  Encore Catering did our daughter's outdoor wedding.  Wow!!!  All of our wedding guests, both family and friends, absolutely raved about the food, decor, and attentiveness.  The bars, cocktail hour, and the food stations for the appetizers, dinners, and desserts were absolutely unreal.  Everything was perfect - from the day we met with Lily H. and her team, sampling the menus, through the clean-up after the event.  Can't say enough about Encore.  They helped make our daughter's wedding 'the wedding of the century.'  Would give more than five stars if possible.   A million thanks again to Lily H. and her team of professionals.

We used Encore Catering for my boys' B'nai Mitzvah. They were outstanding in every way. The food was creative, beautifully presented, and absolutely delicious. Everyone raved about how great the food was. From the cocktail hour to the kids buffet, the food was phenomenal and interesting (even the kids buffet was elevated). And the staff  was attentive, professional, and personable. They made it so we were guests at our own party. I was nervous about doing their party at a venue where I had to bring in my own caterer, but Encore made it fantastic. Working with Lily was easy and efficient. She was organized and responsive and came up with great suggestions. She made sure every last one of my requests and details was handled. I highly recommend them. Even a few days later, we're still enjoying the leftovers. More...

The best caterer in northern New Jersey! I used Encore about 20 years ago as they were starting out. From food to staff, everything is top notch. I used Encore again about 8 years ago and the quality was the same, really good. Several friends and family have used Encore for corporate and personal events and were always extremely satisfied. I suggested my friend use Encore for her sister's surprise birthday cocktail party. They usually use a different caterer, but I suggested Encore because they are that much better. We're a bunch of foodies who love good wine, and everyone was impressed by the food. From the presentation to taste everything was top notch and beyond. I hope Encore gets some business from the guests. I had a great time. The staff went far beyond, truly, brought food across the yard to the fire pit. Everyone was exceedingly happy. Especially our hostess and guest of honor. Encore made the event! More...

This wonderful people catered my daughter's wedding this past Sunday. The staff supervisor was amazing as were the bar staff and servers. The rabbi was delayed getting to the wedding ( missed comunication he's a lovely older gentleman). The wait staff supervisor(Elaine)  got the appetizers passed around the bartenders got people drinks and within 10minutes of hearing the the rabbi was running late they had Happy people eating and drinking and waiting calmly for the rabbi to come. After the ceremony dinner was served. The food was wonderful and all gluten free. If you need a gluten free wedding these are the people to hire they knocked it out of the park. I have been a caterer myself and a personal chef. I don't give praise easily but these people got my attention.The wedding was shabby chic and 100 place settings,china,wine govlet and dessert plates were donated to a store that benefits Veterans. Lilly Herdman who is their wedding coordinator made arrangements for this all to be picked up by Red, Whie and Blue. Once again Kudos to all of them. More...

Professional, punctual, delicious, and easy to use website layout. I used them for an office lunch meeting. I got a lot of compliments. Everything was fresh and well wrapped for delivery. I'll be using them again, they exceeded my expectations. More...

I used Encore for both my rehearsal dinner and wedding and they were fantastic. True customer service from the moment I signed the contract to the moment the last bit of food was packed up and put away. My guests raved about the food and my family raved about the attentiveness of all the Encore team from the maitre d to to the bar tender to the staff who were cleaning up tables. Everything was beautiful, delicious, and way beyond any expectations I ever had. If you care about food and presentation than Encore is your caterer! More...

We have used Encore twice and they are by far the best caterer in New Jersey.  Their dishes are amazing, delicious, and beautifully presented.  They offer many different styles.  We went with multiple "stations" are our parties and the variety catered to every pallet.  Your next party will be great if you use Encore!

We hired Encore to cater our wedding at Kean University in June. They were by far the best caterers!! SO attentive to not just my husband and I but our families and guests. The staff really went out of their way to ensure all guests were happy. Roger and Bill were amazing behind the bar, serving up delicious cocktails and checking on us to make sure we were always good with everything. Lilly was our event manager from Encore and she just rocked! She was SO helpful with ALL planning and made sure everything on the day of was amazing. We are still receiving compliments on the food from our guests which makes us happy because the last thing you want is for guests to walk away hungry because the food wasn't good. We had the taco bar during our cocktail hour and Encore had some fun decorations for the station....the bar received RAVE reviews!! Thanks so much to the whole Encore team!!! More...

I have used Encore Catering several times for Baptisms, Communions and luncheons. I usually order the sandwiches and salads. All have been outstanding! Additionally they provide a variety of home-baked cookies (buttery and delicious), paper goods and even delivery. Each time I have used them, they have exceeded my expectations. More...

I recently helped organize a fundraising event at the Reeves-Reed Arboretum. At the Arboretum they have a list of 4 pre-approved caters- after looking at options and pricing we decided to go with Encore. Selecting Encore was one of the best decisions for the event- everything they was exceptional- the food- the staff- the presentation- everything. Our event had passed appetizers, passed desserts, one stationary food table, a wine bar and a coffee/tee station. The Encore staff was able to work with us and provide us options within our budget. The staff was incredibly friendly and super attentive to each and everyone one of our guests at the event. The staff was even conscious to make sure that all event workers received food.  Encore took less than 2 hours to set and prep everything before the event started- and were even willing to help me carry some of my boxes into the venue. They were also great with clean up- everything was cleaned, swept, and put into trash bags by the curb in less than 45 minutes. More...

On Saturday, Nov. 29 I threw a baby shower for my daughter. I used Encore Catering for the luncheon. I ordered their sandwich package. I got to choose 3 salads, 4 different sandwiches and opted for a fruit platter instead of the cookies. The black bean and edamame salad was a big hit, along with my favorite, their kale ceasar salad.The fabulous sandwiches received rave reviews. We had the beef and bleu cheese on a pretzel roll, turkey and swiss sloppy joes, fresh mozzarella, procutto, roasted red peppers and tomatoes and a roast chicken with avacado. My guests were so impressed by the food thanks to Encore. More...

We used Encore for our wedding and I am beyond happy we made that decision! From start to finish, they were responsive and easy to work with. Most importantly, the food was amazing! We received compliments on the food left and right, didn't even have to ask anyone if they enjoyed it.The service staff was also amazing. Elaine and Andrea made sure the bridal party got to eat and drink while we were taking pictures, so they didn't completely miss out on the cocktail hour, and they also checked on my husband and I numerous times throughout the night to see if we wanted anything. They would even take cold plates away and bring hot ones if we ended up being on the dance floor too long (which happened more than a few times!). We never even expected that, and we are so appreciative and impressed. We also had two vegan guests and they made great plates for them. They seriously could not have done more.My planner was Lilly, and she was wonderful to work with. Never tried to push me to spend more money than I was comfortable with and always had great suggestions. We felt comfortable with her right away at the tasting and she definitely lived up to the first impression. I will definitely be contacting her for any future catering needs I might have. Throughout the planning process, I felt like I really never had to worry too much about anything because Encore/Lilly knew what they were doing. SUCH a relief.Some of the dishes are upcharges but they are absolutely worth it. I will forever dream of Encore's sea bass, and so will all my guests. From cocktail hour to dessert, everything was wonderful. More...

The office I work at had a falling out with one of their regular delis/caterers and every so often they try somewhere new.  Today I was fortunate to get a small sample of Encore Catering.  I don't know about their service so this review is based solely on what I tasted.  The quinoa salad with lemon dressing is an amazing blend of tastes and textures, the only downside was I afraid to smile until I flossed because of all of the fresh herbs in it.  It went wonderfully with the platter of grilled chicken breasts, which were cooked perfectly so they were still moist and flavorful.  I went back for more and there wasn't any.  I also tried the Crispy Eggplant Milanese sandwich and was stunned at how amazing it was, the pesto,  the shaved parmesan -- PERFECTION!  I'm very picky about eggplant, if I don't grow it, then I don't make it, if I don't make it, then I don't eat it.  Several people around the office were disappointed to find out that they just can't walk in and order one of their gourmet sandwiches.  If you're looking for a caterer to impress your guests/clients, then look no further because if the very small sampling I had is any indication of their quality, then this place is a foodies' paradise.Forgot to mention the breads for the sandwiches - nowadays the word artisan is thrown around a lot, these breads were of a quality that is rare to find, they enhance their ingredients instead of just holding them together.
