FreshDirect catering?

I'm thinking of ordering a bunch of hors d'oeuvres platters (sushi, shrimp, cheeses, etc.) from FreshDirect for a big party in February. Has anyone had experience with their catering department? Is the quality good? Are they reliable?

    While I haven't ordered their catering myself, I have been to a party where their food was served...fresh shrimp cocktail, a lovely cheese platter, crudite...I was very impressed with everything.

      I'm generally not to impressed w/ Fresh Direct. Their heads are in the right place but I always get burned w/ overall quality. You should check out KWC Catering.

        I didn't have a great experience. Really bland. My guests seemed to enjoy dinosaur bbq a lot more altho many were too snobby to admit it. Salmon is delicious as are the ribs. It's all tasty if you can stand finger food.

          It is lovely--my friend always orders FD catering for Holiday/Christmas parties and everyone loves the the food. Don't forget the wine is great too.
