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!

Festive Food Caterers (Michael) and his team went above and beyond for our party ! This was a graduation party with lots of adults and tons and tons of teenage kids until late at night! Michael and his staff were overly attentive To every need of every guest! The food was phenomenal ! If you were looking for a caterer to help take the worry off your shoulders this is the caterer you want to speak with everything I needed he did .... I was extremely nervous of not having everything perfect and enough food . Everything was done handmade, beautifully displayed, and everyone was so complementary over every aspect of my party! There was so much food in so much variety we had enough food for 2 days! Please take a moment to speak with Michael if you need any catering services you will relax enjoy your party and be completely impressed with everything he has to offer and everything that Michael and his staff do to make the day incredibly stress-free and enjoyable . He will be our forever go to caterer for any party we have again in the future!

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.

Mark and his crew prepared an amazing anniversary dinner for 10. They came to our house and, using our kitchen, created an evening my husband and I will never forget. The food was delicious-all of us agreed it was the best meal we'd ever had. In addition to preparing a fantastic meal, Mark and his wonderful crew-Charlene, April, and Michelle-provided us with warm, attentive service and were happy to share what they we doing with the foodies among us. An amazing evening! Thank you, Mark.

Three Men and A Grill catered my family barbecue over this past month. Their service was outstanding. Very professional and of course the food was amazing. They worked with us every step of the way to make a menu we'd love.

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.

I am currently working with Susan who will be catering a dinner reception for my wedding this June. I was referred to Susan by a coworker who had previously work with her and raved about how great her food is. I am so happy to have found her, she is very responsive and willing to listen to my concerns. I highly recommend Susan!

About

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.
