Epic BBQ Wedding Reception The full menu and catering service of Just Hors D'Oeuvres goes way beyond the appetizers. With their vast selection of appetizers, entrees and desserts, its hard to imagine a combination which cannot more than please the most demanding of guests. Their grilled lamb, skirt steak and beef tenderloin exceeded high quality expectations and only unsolicited complements were received from many of the guests. The entire staff worked tirelessly for eight hours serving have passed Hors douerves, creating inventive mixed drinks, grilling and organizing the delicious buffet and desserts. The caterers are focused and busy with many events both large and small so just keep this in mind when trying to determine menu selection and coordinating with the various other vendors working your event

Couldn't have asked for better help at a small dinner party last night. He jumped in to take over the prep work when I was scrambling to finish getting ready for our guests, was a pro behind the bar, set up a great buffet dinner, added little extra touches to jazz up dessert, and then left a clean kitchen behind. Highly recommend Rich and plan to use him again in the future!

They catered our son's graduation party. The food was delicious and the attention to detail was exceptional. We loved Cameron's carved carrot birds! They personally served the desserts to all our guests and cleared used plates from the tables and also made sure our home was spotless when then left. We look forward to Cameron and Christine catering our younger son's graduation party in two years.

Five starts isn't even enough for my experience with Scott Murray. If you have an opportunity, hire Scott for your event! Here's my experience to prove why: My Mom just turned 70 and we wanted to give her a party on the beach. This meant that the party was in a state that neither she nor anyone in the family lives in. Hiring the caterer (from 300 miles away) was my responsibility. Thumbtack to the rescue! I got three bids and spoke with all of them, but Scott's reviews were the best and his initial menu and bid were the most sophisticated, so I chose him. Scott was super responsive from the very beginning. He had great ideas on the menu and helped guide the decision-making from choosing menu items, to start times and to helping me stay within budget. A+ for communications skills. I felt comfortable and in good hands from the first email, through our phone conversations, right up to the big day. On the day of the party, he and his delightful staffer, Celia, arrived exactly on time and began to prep. They were both charming and fun and efficient. I knew our space was challenging - small for the number of guests we had - but you would not have known that from the way Scott and Celia handled everything. Food was served exactly on time, beautifully, and was absolutely delicious. And the menu was challenging too - lobsters for 22 people expertly cooked, steak that was grilled to perfection (outside, in another location!), amazing side dishes, apps and dessert. Honest to God, I really don't know how they did it. And that's the beauty of hiring this team. They made it look super easy, they charmed all of my guests, made food that was some of the best I have had, and cleaned up after themselves so the place looked better than we found it. The leftovers (which they packed up!) were just as good (if not even better) than when 1st served. I cannot recommend Scott Murray enough.

Vickie was available throughout the entire process. Her food was exactly what we were looking for. A perfect buffet. Her staff was phenomenal they were on top of everything. Food was perfectly presented and the bartender was on spot with making sure the groom and I were taken care of. Vickie and her staff went well over above and beyond for us. I cannot recommend her enough for any type of event you are having. You will be pleased.

Kathy's group catered a buffet dinner for my mother-in-law's 80th birthday. She was very responsive & cooperative with our plan. Her assistants were top notch! Everyone enjoyed the food; chix parm was excellent. Kathy worked within our budget and delivered excellent value. Her assistant took over as our DJ at the last minute and was great. Would recommend her services. Thank you.

Three Men make it a point to be accomodating and attentive to any and all questions and concerns. It doesn't take much to figure out that they're passionate about quality cuisine! The delicious food speaks for itself; after a bite, you'll get it! From slow roasted tomato bruschetta to baked ziti with homemade marinara, the food is so scrumptious! And what's awesome is that Three Men strive to keep their pricing competitive.

What a great job by Joe and his catering team at Angelo's Market & catering. The food was out of this world and the presentation was as if I was on a Iron Chef episode. It could not have gone any better and I definitely am going to be using Joe again. Thanks again. Robert S.

Whether you're trying to plan a small party for your friends or getting a giant wedding in order, getting a good Connecticut catering company is one of the things that you cannot skip. Getting an outside Connecticut catering company to get the meals ready for you frees your mind and time and lets you focus on the other parts of the event. Getting a large event to flow smoothly can be impossible sometimes, but there are three basic elements to consider before you make a final decision. They are the following: * Cooking -- The food at the event will have a lot to do with your guests. For example, you wouldn't pick a five-star gourmet catering company to serve at a kid's birthday party. You have to consider the different palettes that your guests will have and keep in mind if they have any allergies or special tastes. * Safety -- Most Connecticut catering companies will be glad to give you a behind-the-scenes look at how they cook and prepare the food. The reason for this is that their goal is to make your guests happy, which means being careful to avoid any potential food pollutants. They need to keep everything nice and clean, so remember to ask for a tour. * Customer Service -- Making the food is just as important as their presentation and how they serve it. Look into a company for a while before hiring them. A good way to find a good catering service is to attend an event of some kind and pay attention to how the caterers there treat you -- experiencing the company's service first will be a surefire way to hire the right caterers.
