"Stupendous catering! I ordered large platters and a salad for a surprise party. Just days before the event, my friend came down with Covid and was unable to make the cake; the bakery staff graciously agreed to take on making a cake for 25 people. This last minute assistance was literally the icing on the cake! The food and especially the cake - were exceptional in every way. Easy to work with, generous portions, excellent food, beautifully displayed trays and reasonably priced. This was my first time utilizing their catering services and I would use them again in a heartbeat! This party was for a foodie...someone with a knowledgeable palate and this experience was literally 5 star! Thank you Bakery + Catering staff for making my event so easy to pull off from start to finish! I'll be back for my next event."
" I used blue mountain bistro for my wedding on 08/26/23. Words can not describe how easy and wonderful Mary and her team were to work with. From the very beginning, Mary was accommodating to our requests and asked detailed questions to ensure we were on the same page. Her staff on wedding day were some of the kindest people I have ever met. They were welcoming, helpful, accommodating, and provided us with wonderful ideas to enhance our day. I cannot go without mentioning how great the food was. I had guests tell me that it was the best wedding food they had ever had. From the passed apps to the entrees, we were blown away. 3 weeks later and we are still talking about the tuna Tartare on the wasabi rice cracker. I could not recommend this company more and I am so thankful we found them. Truly our wedding day was perfect and a lot of that had to do with the staff, food, and wonderful drinks made by the bartender. "
" Mary Anne - You were right - the staff was amazing!! Everything was perfect! We had so many compliments on the food and the event in general. They kept everything running smoothly - they didn't need my help once through the evening. They did it all! We loved the food and enjoyed a few leftovers the next night - perfect amount of food! You have always helped me stay calm and peaceful for all the weddings - just the confidence in knowing you do a fantastic job! "
"My venue (Onteora Mountain House) works exclusively with Blue Mountain Bistro, and I was glad to be relieved of the stress of finding a caterer and a cake. Not only that, but the food was great! After buying food from their local shop and attending the tasting, I was actually excited for the food at my own wedding. Everyone was wowed by the quality of the food—during cocktail hour their food was complimented several times and I even got asked “should I pace myself because dinner is going to be just as good?” They also were incredibly helpful with figuring out and working with the allergens and dietary restrictions. Even our cake was amazing. We went for a gamble on a flavor we hadn't gotten to try at the tasting (red velvet,) and it honestly turned out to be my favorite. I highly recommend them as a vendor!"
" Blue Mountain Bistro provided amazing food at our wedding - including a delicious vegan option for the bride + our many vegan friends. Everyone raved about the meals! We are so happy that they catered our wedding. "
" We can’t thank BMB enough for catering our wedding at Onteora Mountain House this past September. A beautiful day perfected by delicious food and incredibly kind service. From the hors d’oeuvres, to the plated service, to the beautiful cake… we could not have been happier. The tasting was one of our all time favorite parts of wedding planning because they make it IMPOSSIBLE to choose! You cannot go wrong and they are super flexible regarding customizations and/or allergies. Thank you to the team who made our dream day come to life, and keeping our guests so so happy! "
"Everything was perfect today. The staff was delightful and professional and made my life so easy! The food was outstanding. We are just so happy with everything. Thank you for helping to make this beautiful occasion even more wonderful for our family. We look forward to many parties with you!"

My husband and I are some of the last of our friends to get married so we have been to A LOT of weddings together. One thing that always sticks out is the quality of the food and wedding food tends to be mediocre at best. For this reason, we were very concerned about our food. We had low expectations but we figured as long as it was enjoyable it would be fine. WELL, Blue Mountain BLEW US AWAY. I cannot express how delicious all of the food was, even at the large wedding scale. We had passed hors d'oeuvres and a grazing table during cocktail hour that our guests completely devoured, then we had the choice of salmon, beef or a vegetarian option for dinner. I did not see a plate that wasn't cleaned and afterwards and many of our guests told us how amazing the food was. Salmon is a very difficult thing to get right in general and this salmon was hands down the best we have ever had. We also used them for our cake, which was beautiful and wonderful. We did have a tasting ahead of time and everything was good, there was not a single item that we didn't enjoy. On top of that, working with Mary Anne is so easy. She knows exactly what she's doing and exactly what she needs for rentals (you do have to get all of the rentals separately, which isn't any big deal, Mary Anne will take care of all of the logistics). We highly recommend Blue Mountain!
"Love Bistro to go! We ordered a bunch of wraps and appetizers for my sons first Birthday party and we couldn’t be happier! Everyone raved about how good the food was and the fresh baked brownie/cookie platter was delicious. Will definitely be ordering from here again for any get togethers or nights my husband and I don’t feel like cooking. The staff is always very pleasant and Sophie was a huge help in getting everything together for us exactly as we wanted. Look forward to ordering from here again very soon."
"So impressed by the "small party catering to-go" that we ordered recently for a dinner party we were having. This is not your typical catering, this is delicious fresh flavorful food!! We were so afraid that reheating everything would dry it out, but all could not have been more juicy and perfect (even the steak!). Everyone raved about everything! The green beans and mushrooms were so good I ate them for breakfast the next day. No joke.
I also have to give a shout-out to the staff, who were all so helpful and accommodating. We will definitely be back for help with our next party!"
Mary Anne and the Blue Mountain Bistro crew are amazing!!! Having locally sourced ingredients was very important to us when looking for a wedding caterer and Blue Mountain does it right, for a fair price and with great taste! We actually visited the store and picked up dinner to-go before booking and were blown away from the taste and quality of the offerings. From the incredibly stocked grazing table and passed hors d'oeuvres all the way through the wedding cake and bite-sized tartlets, everything was super delicious and beautifully presented. Multiple wedding guests came up to us to say that the steak was the best they ever had at a wedding. Coming from a crew that visits top quality restaurants in NYC on the regular, this said a lot!! Mary Anne worked diligently with us on the menu, incredible tasting, as well as all of the timing details. We also catered the day-after BBQ with Blue Mountain and are so glad we did. Her staff is super friendly and the bartenders she works with kept the drinks flowing and carried out our requests without question and with ease.
Mary Anne is a SUPERSTAR!! She is a problem solver extraordinar! She was in contact with vendors, paid attention to details, saved us from unneeded extra expense. Experienced in wedding catering for many years, she and her team delivered delicious, fresh, locally sourced & very high quality food that our guests raved about. Accommodated vegetarians to carnivores.
She delivered so much more than expected! Our day would not have been the same success without her!
Blue Mountain Bistro catered our wedding at Onteora Mountain House in June. The food was absolutely delicious and working with the BMB team was such a pleasure. Given Covid wedding planning, we had to rethink some things about our menu and how food would be served. The BMB team was so open to working with us to make sure the appetizers, dinner, and desserts were exactly what we envisioned. We had a lovely tasting where we got to try samples of all the food options which was essential to decision-making. We got so many compliments from our guests on the food. I *highly* recommend BMB for your catering needs!
This is a much belated review, but the food at my wedding was so good and Mary Anne was such a pleasure to deal with during my wedding planning jitters - thank you Mary Anne! So many guests came up to me saying everything they had was delicious. I wish I had a stacked plate of all of the apps as I write this! And the food tasting that I did a month earlier was a blast!
We just wanted to thank you for the fantastic job you did in catering Zander and Emily's wedding dinner at Pioneer Farm last week! Not only was the food fresh, beautiful and tasty, but you and your staff were just a pleasure to deal with. It was exactly what Zander and Emily had dreamed of - and the full moon made it all even more magical! I can't tell you how many of the guests came up to us to rave about the dinner - which is unfortunately not always the case at a wedding.
Thank you again for helping to make this wedding so very special! Although we live in Colorado, we are frequently in New York, and will hope to be up to visit you on one of our next trips.
Many thanks and love.
