Michael and his team did a phenomenal job catering our wedding at Briar Patch. Michael was extremely helpful with coordinating the menu and logistics as he accommodated all the allergens and substitutions for food.We got the dinner menu with the Intermezzo, which worked out great for the kids and provided a bit of laughter around the table for our guests as they thought that they got dessert after salads.The staff who served my wife and I before the wedding helped us get an actual meal before the wedding reception, and we loved being able to try everything that we picked out AND that the food wouldn't be in any group pictures with our guests. My family told me post wedding how great the staff was as well, so I'm thankful that all aspects of our wedding, both what we saw and what we didn't were enjoyed by all our guests.


Yesterday you catered a birthday party for our neighbor’s 5 year old daughter. I just want to let you know that it was great! The food was delicious and your employees were very pleasant and helpful. It was a pleasant experience for the guests.

Helgas catering was such a highlight of our wedding day. Wedding planning is typically stressful, but Helgas took stress from our lives in every way imaginable. The service we received from Michael and his team is top notch. Any time I'd have a random thought or stressor, Michael would simply smile and provide a list of every way he could make our wedding perfect. He is flexible, patient, and exactly the type of person you want to work with. The value of the food that Helgas provides is unmatched. Our dinner was phenomenal, and guests enthusiastically took every opportunity for seconds. One of the most beautiful surprises was just how gorgeous our cocktail hour was. Michael described to us a spread of fruits, cheeses, vegetables, breads, and crab dip, but oh MY was it beautiful and so much more than expected. They added touches of fresh greenery to the buffet tables, and they arranged the appetizers to where it was almost too pretty to touch. They also took our cookie table tradition with stride, and took our 2,000+ homemade cookies and arranged them in a stunning display. We actually forgot to grab our small tray of leftovers from dinner after we stayed the night at our venue, and we drove over an hour back to our venue to grab them because the food was just that good! Helgas took such care of everyone, with extra attention to my husband and me as we were immediately brought a tray with every drink we could think to choose from and a plentiful spread of appetizers during cocktail hour. Despite having a buffet, Helgas served my husband and me the whole night, making sure that we were treated like royalty. Our guests can't stop talking about the food, and we are so grateful for Michael and his team for all of their help.

We had a fabulous experience working with Michael to cater our 75 person wedding. It’s clear that he’s a pro—he anticipated what we would need given our venue and made the process so easy. We got the Greek meal and people raved about the food! He was also very flexible when we wanted to change up the menu to incorporate some family recipes and adapt to unique layout of the venue. Overall I highly recommend working with Helga’s.

We recently had the pleasure of having Helga's Catering cater my husband's birthday party. We have had Helga's catering in the past, and we were happy to have them again. They were so attentive and professional and made our party hassle free. The team was extremely helpful in troubleshooting a problem we had with our tent (which they didn't even have to do, but were kind enough to help!!). They were thoughtful with organizing food, displaying it and plating it and thinking a step ahead, for example, having a cake knife ready to cut the cake before i even thought about it. The presentation of food was lovely and the food tasted great. They also did an amazing job with cleanup. We hope to see you again in the future, Chrissy, Gerald, Cesar, and Carlos!!! Thank you for a memorable night!!

Wonderful experience for our wedding! Helga's was very professional and flexible, and the wait staff were fantastic, ensuring that the wedding party was taken care of and had appetizers, which we would not have gotten to eat otherwise. Would highly recommend!

I organized a family event with Helga's Caterers back in early 2020 as part of a special weekend celebration at Arlington National Cemetery. The staff was extremely helpful in helping me choose from the many wonderful menu options available. Needless to say, once COVID-19 hit and things were shut down, our event at ANC was cancelled and rescheduled...not one time, but three times between April 2020 and April 2021! I was so very grateful to Helga's for sticking with me during the uncertain time. Finally, on April 10, 2021, we held a modified version of our original event. Two of Helga's best employees/servers (Gerald and Mario) came to our private rental home in Washington, DC and set up the best garden party we could have imagined! They were true experts in their fields...from serving passed hors d'oeuvres to handling the bar, to carving the beef tenderloin! But enough about the fantastic staff...it was the wonderful and delicious food that took center stage! Everyone at our party raved about all of the food. Seriously, it was THAT GOOD! The night turned out to be everything I had hoped for and more. I only hope that at some point I will need to be in the DC area again and need catering...I will definitely choose Helga's Catering! I would most definitely recommend their services to any group, small, medium or large. They will handle it professionally and you won't be sorry! Thank you!!

I’m so grateful to Michael and his excellent team. With Covid our wedding plans had to be drastically modified and Helgas was the only vendor that worked with us to find a solution that worked for everyone. The communication throughout the process was amazing and food was delivered on time and setup quickly. In addition to the amazing service and communication, the food was excellent and all of our guests loved it! This was probably the only part of our wedding plans that worked out and I’m so thankful that we have at least this piece to remember our special day. I can’t recommend Helga’s enough and will use them again for future catering needs. Thank you again so much!

We were SO glad we chose Helga's to cater our November wedding! They made sure that everything ran smoothly. Everyone we worked with was friendly, patient, and knowledgeable. And the food was GREAT! Helga's is a really great value and they do an incredibly professional job. Would definitely recommend.

We had such a great experience working with this team! Just look at all the awards they have won and there is a reason why. They are prideful in their work, attend to detail, keep you informed, and are pleasant to work with from quotation to event! I would do it all over again and pick them each time!

A caterer can make or break your wedding... and Helga's knocked it out of the park! I absolutely loved working with them. We had a very tight budget and Helga's was incredibly accommodating to it, while still providing excellent service. They bring a lot of experience to the table, and Michael and the staff were so attentive to every little detail. I came to the tasting with a list of questions, and they were prepared for everything. The food was delicious, and I received many compliments from wedding guests. The wait staff went above and beyond - they were constantly thinking of little ways to help guests (and my husband and I) enjoy the day (and keep it drama-free!). Besides my wedding photographer, Helga's was my FAVORITE vendor! So responsive and thoughtful. If you're on the fence, just do a tasting with them... you won't be disappointed!

Catered a work event with Helga's, and the entire experience was fantastic! I organized a work event at our office for about 75 people, and I reached out to Helga's since they were a local company and had some interesting options. The initial discussion with pricing, options, etc. was very smooth, and Lynda was prompt in replying to my questions. I was also able to do a site walkaround with Michael to make sure the venue had the appropriate space and resources available to the Helga's team, but the staff ended up being very self-sufficient! Additionally, we had a last minute event location change due to weather, but the staff again was very accommodating and adapted quickly. The staff was very professional throughout the night, and the food and beverage service was a hit with the crowd. We definitely will be keeping Helga's in mind for all future catering opportunities!

THANK GOODNESS FOR HELGA'S!!!! Michael and his staff took care of us from start to finish. The food was out of this world, and the service was top notch. I would recommend Helga's to anyone who want's to have a worry free event. We had 80 people for our daughters wedding at our home this past weekend. The event exceeded all our expectations form start to finish. I'm so happy that my dear friend recommended Helga's to us. From our first planning meeting to our tasting we couldn't have been happier. Michael even helped me with tent rentals and had great ideas on how to set up our venue. Did I mention we did all this in less than three months. Thank you Helga's for EVERYTHING!!!!

We recently had a party that Helga's catered and the food was outstanding​. A number of guests asked who had catered the event and even wanted to know if there were going to be any leftovers they could take with them!! Thank you to Helga's for helping to create such a wonderful evening!!
