Our Family Business

Our DC, MD & VA catering business is a family business, so we take great honor in being included in yours. Family owned and operated for 40 years, at Catering by Uptown we have a long history of making dream days come true. We have a special place in our heart for the thousands of wedding couples we’ve served, and this experience has created a culture of attention to detail, eagerness to please, and flexibility to handle nearly any request. We understand that as a couple, you are entrusting us with one of the most special days of their lives. We take that trust to heart each and every time.

We feel that our strong values shine through in every aspect of our company. We hire the kindest people we can find for every position, and the owners of the business are involved in every aspect of our services. Each event receives personal attention as if you are one of the family.

Not only do we pride ourselves on our signature dishes and flawless presentations, but we also have many other areas that make our services one of a kind. From the moment you call on the phone or walk in the front door, you are treated as a close friend and are surrounded by eager and smiling faces. As a full service catering company, we are able to help you every step of the way in planning your big day. Whether it’s picking your linen from our wonderful selection, to putting together your special timeline to selecting an excellent florist, Catering by Uptown is committed to meeting your needs and going above and beyond to fulfill all your expectations.

On the day of your event, our staff is the first to arrive and the last to leave. We will be prepared when your guests arrive: prepared to serve: prepared to offer quality, variety, and abundance: prepared to execute the plan we will have created together. The beautiful stationary hors d’eourves and tuxedo-clad waiters passing scrumptious butlered hors d’eourves will quickly draw your guests into the cocktail hour. The dinner hour will leave your guests full and happy. Your Day-of Coordinator will also be there to ensure that the timing of the event runs smoothly and that all important guests are in the room at key times. When the party concludes, it is our staff that will ensure you and your guests leave with all your belongings and the site is cleaned up.

Thanks for entrusting us with your celebration.

We’re honored to be a part of it.
