I was impressed with my initial contact with Main Event: quick replies, nice proposal. Now I HUGELY regret paying Main Event an enormous deposit. They could not be more unprofessional or more rude. Emails and phone calls go unanswered for weeks. When I finally manage to get ahold of someone, they insult my ideas, say they'll get back to me...and don't. Then they demand immediate turn around from me, on issues that I have been trying to discuss with them for weeks.

Take it from me: this is a terrible organization. Do not trust them with an event you care about. Pay more if you have to, but stay away from these people.

I have been workign with Main Event Caterers about three years. I hire them for 5-10 events per year. The events vary from small (16 guests) working dinners to bigger (200 guests) receptions. I have never been dissapointed with food, staff or prior communication with event designer. There have been only two slight errors (miscommunication, mixing up the wine), but the rest of the time - performance beyond expectations. Main Event Caterers staff is always super helpful, polite, gracious, ethical and so nice to all the guests. The food is always terrific. I get compliments from my guests and requests for contact information. The chefs are friendly and always fullfil last minute needs. If you want a successfull and quality event, hire Main Event Caterers. My contact at the company is Ms. Alison Fisher. She is very professional, smart, creative and has many suggestions. I would hire them for my wedding.

I happened on these reviews while looking up the number for my son's upcoming Bar Mitzvah. My daughter's Bat Mitzvah was 2 years ago, and Main Event did a spectacular job. I did not personally need a kosher caterer as the event was dairy, but the event space mandated it. I found Steve from ME at a friends' affair, where the salads were unusual and tasty, and asked him about doing my event. Every request of ours was fulfilled, the food was beyond delicious, the price reasonable and best of all, Steve handled the whole thing so I didn't need to worry-he is experienced and helpful.

I would never use main event because having seen how horrendously they treat their employees I would not support such a business on that basis alone. Screaming at employees is not acceptable in my opinion.With that said you might find my opinion biased from the outset, but being subjected to their food on a weekly basis I feel it necessary to also give you my honest opinion concerning their food (as this is what most people are concerned with choosing a caterer). I find that their food is extremely bland. I am served their food all too often, and you would think that a caterer would serve some food that is bland for the folks with milder taste buds, but also seasoned and spiced food for those with a more developed palete. Well that is not the case, and it is as if all their food is prepared for infants.

I must say, as I was googling Main Event for info on their mailing address, I came across these two negative reviews. While everyone has their opinion - I am shocked at some of the points made by Adam W. I have been to many events catered by ME and saying the fish was not spectacular or that the meat was tough - is pretty funny since their fish is ALWAYS moist and flavorful and their meat is usually soft and succulent. I have been on a few committees for organizational dinners and ME is great to deal with - knowledgeable, organized, timely and fun. Their reputation is rock solid and the fact that they are so busy is a testimony to their success. As a matter of fact, my friend's daughter's engagement was called off, pretty close to the date and ME did the right thing and returned the deposit. They are pretty good that way I understand. Just wanted to put my 2 cents in. They have a pretty famous and good reputation and I would definitely quote them out, based on word of mouth recommendation. Never been to a bad tasting event and they have always treated us respectfully.

I would say overall they are ok but there were some flaws. Keep in mind that I am in the business to some extent as a Kosher Restaurant Manager, so I notice things and am very critical where others might not.I attended a wedding this past week catered by Main Event.Overall, I give them high marks for presentation and general food quality. In the reception, the chicken in the reception was a little undercooked. You don't want to be thinking that its not cooked completely so it's better to err on the side of caution. Salmon was not spectacular. The was very good as were most of the other dishes I sampled in the reception. Dinner was a soup/salad plate. Soup was not exceptional, a plain puree. Salad was better but could do with out the canned corn pieces. This is a wedding.Main course, better. Chicken breast and meat. I would trim the skin off the chicken but that's me. The Mashed potatoes was good - could have used something more but it was good. The meat was the problem. Very tough. This was my main complaint with the food at the event. This is a wedding, the meat should be sublime, not uneatable.If you use them, make sure to stress that the meat must be longer cooked, if you are having beef. And also make sure same for the chicken in the reception. You shouldn't have to worry about this, but if you use Main Event, don't assume they are first class. They may be in the presentation and in the wait staff apparel but for the actual food, make sure to hound them about the quality.

I would only use them if I can be assured that these important details will be adhered to.

unfortunately main event takes very long to return your call (weeks). for my money I do not like being treated so shabbily. as a matter of fact they took a $2500 check from me and never even gave me a receipt. when they took weeks to return a contract i wanted my check back.Bear in mind there is no signed contract and no catering services provided and they will not send back the check. Main Event is criminal. And guess what happens when i call mr. Bodner, he never returns my call. A very fraudulent caterer

Eddy and the staff outdid themselve in the two weddings that they catered for us. In Jewish weddings one expects quantity, but Main Event provided SUPERB QUALITY as well.

Our guests could not have been more pleased.

I was recommended to have this caterer for my daughter's wedding by her friend and I could not be happier. The food is delicious and the service is fantastic. Everyone loved everything and complemented us for days later. They will do everything you ask and even more. I have no complaints. If you need a kosher caterers for a wedding or event, Main Event Caterers are the ones to call.
