Our Testimonials

Ron and his team were

Ron and his team were the perfect partners for our wedding in Naples. We started planning our wedding only 12 weeks before our date. Ron was responsive to our short runway as well as our special requests. The food was spectacular and beautifully presented. Ron even helped with renting tables and linens. Go with Bernwood, you will not be disappointed.


Simply Delicious

Great service, amazing staff, creative delicious menu. I had the pleasure of working together with Rob and his team at a wedding this July. The cake was everyone’s favorite, white chocolate mousse cake with chocolate icing I believe,. I would work with him again anytime and definitely someone I can recommend to my clients or anyone in general. Thank you.

Great communication with this business.

Great communication with this business. I reached out to 4 different caterers and Chef Ron was the only one that quickly responded. I still haven’t heard from 2 other caterers and it’s been 10 days. Chef Ron was always available to answer my questions, he presented a very fair quote. I highly recommend this company.

Personal Chef for Husband’s 50th Birthday

Thursday, November 21st, 2019 Ron and his staff catered my husband’s 50th birthday party on Marco Island and where shall I begin with all the wonderful things they helped me with. I was planning this event about 5 months before and I live out of state for 12 friends and family attending from Germany, Michigan and Tennesse, and Ron was the absolute best communicator every time I reached out to him. He listened and planned and is a true professional in every way. He helped with menu suggestions and prepared a clear estimate of cost once most things were itemized… Read more “Personal Chef for Husband’s 50th Birthday”

Great service and wonderful food

I used the catering services for a Thanksgiving party. Ron provided Chef Eduardo and Sharka, server, who arrived promptly on time. We had wonderful appetizers, including mini crab cakes, coconut shrimp and deviled eggs that were outstanding. We then had turkey dinner with all the complements. Everyone loved the food and raved about their professionalism. The kitchen was left clean and organized. We also requested a birthday cake and Ron arranged to have a pastry chef prepare a great savory cake. Definitely will hire again.

Friday Evening Wedding

Ron and his staff did an awesome job for my daughter’s wedding…everyone loved the salmon and of course the bruchetta and his homemade chips are my favorite. He was so sweet to my 87 year old mother she wants me to call him for her 90th birthday

Kathleen Roden

Once again, Ron hit it out of the park for us. We hosted 34 people for a rehearsal dinner at our home, complete with table rentals, linens, chairs, dishes, flatware, and of course FOOD. We had beautiful appetizers (the spinach-artichoke spread was not like the usual thick goopy dip..it was fresh, light, and really delicious), tapenade, homemade parmesan crisps (he needs to sell these retail!) and bruschettas, along with little mini-platters of cheeses decorated with vegetable “animals”. Very creative. Buffet consisted of scrumptious stuffed grouper, mushroom risotto, lamb chops, chicken saltimbocca, two salads, and fresh homemade rolls (which all the… Read more “”

Ron is the greatest when it comes to making suggestions and producing the menu of your choice. I had a graduation party catered to my home and everybody commented on the excellence of each dish he presented in the buffet. I would highly recommend Ron, he is energetic an conscientious about his work and you can leave every detail in his hands and not have to worry about the final product. Best you can get !!!!

Chef Ron did an outstanding job with our group of golfers. We often go out for dinner every night while we’re south golfing, so this was new to us and we weren’t sure what to expect. What we enjoyed was a friendly, courteous team that provided great service and a superb meal. From the appetizers to dessert, everything was great. Having sourced Chef Ron and worked with him on all the arrangements, I could not have been more pleased.

At the last minute we decided to have a Kentucky Derby Party at our home. I used Thumtack to find a caterer, several got back to me and I wasnt pleased with what they had to offer us that I almost thought of not having the party, that was until Ron Casterline from Bernwood Called me back! Ron came to our home, and walked us right through the planning process by assessing the amount of room, suggested a menu, and showed us pictures. I was so confident that the party would be a big hit with our friends. The day… Read more “”

Chef Ron and John were great! The food was delicious and the portions were huge! We were all happily stuffed by the end of dinner 🙂 If I were to have another event, I would definitely hire Ron again. Thanks for the great evening!

Emma J.

We hired Chef Ron to prepare the food for our baby shower. He prepared a wonderful BBQ menu for our guests. Everyone raved about how good the food was. The service staff were exceptional and made the event, which was held at our new home go very smoothly. We particularly liked that his catering company was able to offer tables and chairs rentals which made things very easy! We highly recommend, and look forward to hiring Bernwood Catering Co. again for our future events.

Ron was meticulous in his planning and his staff was terrific. The Greek menu was authentic exceptional and the 65 pound celebration cake was over-the-top! Many people remarked how terrific the food was, how courteous his staff carried out their service, and how well every course was executed. Thanks Ron for your expertise!

Konnie Y.

What a fantastic experience with Chef Ron and team for our son’s Graduation party! We decided on a Mexican style buffet with some shrimp-skewers and pulled-pork… And ALL of food was totally outstanding… and the service, Wow! After beautifully prepping the tables and linens, Chef Ron’s team took over our kitchen and handled the party perfectfy… everyone raved, and the massive cake was amazing!! We’ll definitely be calling Bernwood Catering again.

My husband passed away 3 weeks ago. As a restaurant owner we wanted my husbands Celebration of Life to be held in our restaurant but did not want our staff to do the work. Ron stepped into our kitchen and beautifully prepared food for 300…great job Ron and staff!

Annie F.

Chef Ron did an amazing job with my husband’s birthday party. His staff was very courteous and kind to all of my guests. He helped me plan the party and offered lots of suggestions. It was easy to work with him as he handles table, chair and linen rentals as well. Chef Ron was a joy to work with and even cleaned up and packed away all of our leftovers for snacking later. =) I look forward to working with him again. His rolls (they make great sandwiches with ham) and bruschetta were amazing.

We would defiantly want… Read more “”

Vacation House Personal Chef

Chef Ron HITS IT OUT OF THE PARK! We had nearly a dozen people vacationing in a beach rental for a week and no one wanted to cook – or fuss having to dress up and drive to go out to eat. For less expense and zero hassle, Chef Ron provided breakfast, lunch and dinner all week, and all I can say is, WOW. From the word “Go”, Chef Ron made it effortless. He did everything. He is the consummate caterer…professional and reliable, yet easy-going and accessible. He’s both helpful and innovative, possessing the creative gift of working with you… Read more “Vacation House Personal Chef”
