Chef Ron was wonderful to work with. He had to deal with some last minute changes due to weather and he and his crew pulled it off without a hitch. The menu he created was wonderful. Our friends still talk about how good it was. We also had PLENTY and it was all displayed beautifully. Thanks so much for making our special day just that more special! More...

I highly recommend Bernwood, I have used them for 2 company events in the last year. They are very professional with the most exceptional delicious tasting food! They pay attention to every detail to the lay out, food, linens and timing. I could not ask for better service. This year we added a ice sculpture that turned out more amazing than I imagined. If you want perfection Ron is your guy. I had nothing but compliments from the owners and guests..........
That is my 5 STAR opinion, you can't go wrong with RON! :)

Chef Ron and his staff were amazing, on time, professional and the food was a 5+ on a scale of 1-5.
We hosted a birthday dinner on Marco Island and had to set this up from NJ. We were new to this area of Florida and came across his web site.....
After speaking with him we knew we were in safe hands 🙌 with Chef Ron! He met and exceeded our expectations- Food was amazing and we had compliments from everyone! We will definitely hire him again and you’ll be very pleased if you use him!
He gets 5 stars ⭐️ from us! He rocks!

The end result with the set up for our event and the food was amazing. The conversations and building our menu for the event was a bit more challenging for my first time using Bernwood Catering Co. There would be times set up to get a call back for a phone meeting and I would not hear back from our contact till hours later. There were a few times I would receive a text apology of how busy he was and that was why he was so late in contacting me. I have family members in other area of the country who cater so I do understand that people get busy. However, it does leave the client feeling unimportant and not a priority. More...

Hi Cece , First I am so happy you thought the end results were very good. I am very disappointed you had a hard time with my returning your call's etc. We were Extremely busy for the holiday period & because of Covid ,etc & many areas of the crazy word we are living in I did the best I could with scheduling your call's. I hope the end result was good enough for you to continue using us for your next catering event's . Thanks for your helpful feedback. As you can see by the rest of our reviews we my response times & interaction with client's is usually spot on. Thanks again, Chef Ron

Chef Ron was amazing! Not only did he provide an excellent array of food, but he was also to help with all of our last minute needs, including outdoor heaters! The food was amazing and the timing was impeccable. Chef Ron was able to fit our event in with only a few weeks notice during a busy holiday season. His prices were very reasonable and we ended up using him for tables, chairs, etc. because he was able to get these cheaper than any other place where we received quotes. I would highly recommend Chef Ron and Bernwood Catering for any event you may have, no matter the size. More...

Chef Ron made our week in Naples, FL special. The food was fantastic and his customer service even better. Despite being incredibly busy he was on time with high quality meals each day. The food was not a typical catering food - you could tell it was made just prior to delivery and each day a gourmet meal was served. We had Italian, Mexican, Burgers, Detroit Chili Dogs, Steak, Lobster, Salmon, Bacon wrapped scallops and so much more. Honestly, the burgers may have been the best I've ever had.

Ron's communication throughout the ordering process and on each day of delivery was spot on. He is very talented and would do business with him again when we visit. Thank you Chef Ron for your passion and being such a good person. All the best in 2021! Mosca Family.

We had a destination wedding in Florida and Chef Ron and his staff made everything PERFECT! Chef Ron was so easy to work with and really helped guide the menu to perfection. The food was incredible, the service was flawless and invisible to the guests. The evening had such a smooth flow due to Chef Ron and his team’s professionalism and attention to detail. I hire high end guest chefs on a regular basis for my business’ winemaker dinners and Chef Ron’s quality is top notch! I only wish he lived closer to us. :) You and your guests will love him!

Chef Ron did an excellent job of preparing and delivering an early Christmas dinner on the 18th for 18 adults and 16 children with very short notice. A last minute change of plans had us looking fir a caterer 10-12 days prior to our event. Chef Ron responded to my email, phoned, sent a menu, followed up and delivered a great meal including appetizers, children’s fare, prime rib dinner with all the extras and dessert. We chose the preparation, delivery option and it worked very well. 5 stars here. More...

We recently hired Berwood Catering Company for a Grand Opening of a new Clubhouse and Community in Naples for local Real Estate Brokers. I had heard so many wonderful things about Bernwood and this is the first time I got to work with them. Ron is amazing, his entire team is amazing and everything on his menu is amazing and outstanding!!! It felt like I had worked with them for a very long time. Everything they did from start to finish was done with ease, confidence, efficiency and friendliness. I highly recommend Bernwood Catering! More...

The actual event isn't until the 14th but it is all set to go. Chef Ron is very helpful and doesn't pressure you into anything. He sends you lots of pictures and ideas. He will offer ideas by phone also for your memorial reception or whatever your event is and that was very much appreciated. More...

Chef Ron saved Thanksgiving for my 80-year old mother who lives in Naples! I had ordered a prepared meal to be delivered by a specialty food company but there was a mix up on the delivery date. Chef Ron came to the rescue just few days before turkey day and whipped up a delicious meal complete with turkey, gravy, vegetables, mashed and sweet potatoes, stuffing, and a whole apple pie for a very reasonable price. All my mom had to do was pick up the piping hot feast and serve it. She raved about the food and generous portions—and how easy it all was. We definitely will call Chef Ron for Thanksgiving again next year if not sooner. More...

When your only daughter tells you that her dream is to have her wedding on a beach and that beach is over 1100 miles away, you know that you will need lots of help to make it happen. I believe it was divine intervention the night I emailed Ron Casterline of Bernwood Catering at 11 pm. He immediately responded and said that he could talk right now if I wanted to. So we did and quickly a friendship grew by many texts and phone calls over a 9 month span. Ron was always available any time I had a question or an idea to run by him. He organized all the rentals for us, gave recommendations for flowers and DJ, discussed menu options in depth and recommended what he thought would work best with the budget we had in mind. He made me feel very comfortable and although we had never met in person, I had complete trust he would make everything perfect for us. He even went out of his way to find us a new DJ when the one we reserved had an unexpected emergency and had to move out of the area 3 months before the wedding!
When the big day arrived, Ron organized the drop off times and set up of all the rentals. He came by the night before to get a plan in place because he knew I would be busy the day of. When I say this man thinks of everything....Wow!!
It was a “knock your socks off” moment when we made it over to the cocktail hour and a server brought me some bruschetta and a bacon wrapped shrimp! His presentation of the appetizers was a work of art and everything was just popping with flavor! Mealtime brought even more delight to us all! During dinner, chef Ron walked around with a platter of food asking guests if they would like seconds! The staff was so friendly and polite, the bartender was so much fun... our guests raved about the reception for days! I truly, truly cannot thank Chef Ron enough for helping me make my daughter’s dreams come true! If you are wanting a flawless event, you must contact Bernwood Catering - Ron will take great care of you!

My sister and I turned to Chef Ron for a luncheon - we were unsure of what to choose so Chef offered several really great options. We took his advice and were pleasantly surprised! Our luncheon was delicious, super nice presentation, and the food was wonderful-my guests especially loved Chef Ron’s delicious tropical chicken salad! We had a sudden change of plans and less than a week before our retreat we found ourselves looking for a charcuterie board for 7 guests-in frantic mode, we called Chef Ron and he assured us he could put one together for us if we picked it up-which we did and oh goodness, my guests truly enjoyed the fresh charcuterie board-so in one week, we used Chef Ron’s business twice and both times he hit it out of the park! Excellent food, great portion size and really good value-plus simple to deal with! I highly recommend! ❤️ More...

Chef Ron went WAY above and beyond to help make our daughter’s wedding AMAZING! Chef Ron had great communication from the moment I reached out to him for the initial quote. His menus are extensive and everything we ordered between rehearsal dinner and the reception was outstanding in taste and presentation. Chef Ron takes a lot of pride in offering the best customer care and service as well as the food he prepares is truly a work of art! Our daughter’s wedding was a small outdoor wedding but the planning and coordination was overwhelming at times. Chef Ron would always offer recommendations and advise and help coordinate between the rental company and the cake lady. I asked Chef Ron to select the cake for us and it was absolutely beautiful and delicious! Through all the changes due to COVID, the frustrations and worry, Chef Ron was always communicating and we always found something to laugh about! Thank you Chef Ron for making Lisa and Chad’s wedding the nicest we have ever experienced. You have made friends for life with all of us! You’re the BEST! ❤️ More...

Chef Ron helped feed our entire cast and crew while we were filming a movie in Naples. He stayed up late at night and made sure we had everything we needed to make this movie work.

He was able to work with us on short notice and gave us the best food and at affordable prices. The crew was always happy come dinner time on set. More...

I would like to thank Bernwood catering for the fantastic job they did at my wedding. Chef Ron was amazing. Not only was the food fabulous but the presentation was straight out of a magazine. As the wedding party took pictures, Chef Ron created a cheese mural that was far superior than anything I've ever seen. Time for the entree. Chicken Marsala and pork chop. My phone still rings asking who was that guy. I think you get the picture. Anyways, enough about the wedding, Chef Ron is doing my 50th birthday bash next year, but please don't tell him I want it to be a surprise. More...

Ron and his team were a pleasure to work with. Ron worked directly with me to plan 5 nights of catered dinners for a family reunion of 60 people. He did everything he could to work within our set budget and even worked around my ideas for meal, even though they were not on his normal menu.
The meals we chose were all presented well, delicious and multiple choices for everyone. We wanted a combination of more causal meals, along with a couple of more formal meals. For casual nights, he pulled off a fun pizza/stromboli night one night and he grilled burgers right on site another day. His chef night was incredible and I have never tasted better prime rib.
I could rave about all of his meals, but to keep it simple, we were not disappointed in any of the 5 meals that were served to us and highly recommend using Ron and his team.
