Marylyn was an absolute miracle in helping us sort through the hurdles of planning our wedding! We live in Florida and held our wedding in CT and she spent so much time with me, over email and phone to work out every detail, she went well beyond what I expected of a catering service to ensure we had everything we needed. We got married on the first Saturday of fall and so Marylyn and her team had a busy weekend, so she had Neal, her partner take care of our party. While I'm disappointed I didn't get to actually meet Marylyn and give her an enormous, grateful hug, Neal was patient and thorough, and did a fantastic job. We had just been through hurricane Irma in Florida, so our plans and setup were chaotic/last-minute, but Neal and his team at the venue did a wonderful job catering to our late adjustments. EVERYONE came up to our table to tell us the menu options and food was fantastic. Marylyn, along with my (the bride's), experience in food service, helped us create an unusual menu of delicious selections. The cocktail hour hors d'oeuvres were excellent! We highly recommend the lamb chops with mint sauce, everybody went crazy on those! We had a lovely cookie bar next to our cake and the cookies were excellent as well. All in all, our wedding was a complete success and everyone had a great time. We're so happy we found Juste Hors D'oeuvres and we're over the moon about our special day being perfect and quirky like us. Thank you Marylyn, Neal, her team of caterers, her rental partner William and everyone who helped make our day so special. We are eternally grateful!

We had an event for 140 people at Lighthouse Point Last Night, and hired Rich and his team. Right from the moment he got in contact with us, Rich was super responsive and clear. He helped us work through what our needs would be and offered to take care of many of the little details related to the bar that you never think of but that make it very special. And, to boot, he was a great bartender and presence at the event. Warm service, great attitude, and overall a great guy to work with. Thanks, Rich!

My experience was EXCEPTIONAL!! I believe that 35 guest at the surprise 30th birthday party would agree. The compliments about the food and staff providing the services were endless...parting words for many as they left the event. I am a true critic when it comes to taste, presentation, and professionalism.It was perfect. Every need was met with a smile and eagerness to assist in creating a magical evening. For the guest of honor it was "the best birthday ever." For the guest, it was a delightful experience prompting multiple request for the "caterers" information! I don't think Nate has it in his DNA to disappoint.

Festive Food Caterers was the best choice that i made for my dad's surprise 60th birthday. From the initial conversation that I had with Chef Michel he made it very comfortable, and really was engaged in the process. He did an AMAZING before and the day of the event as well. He was kind, professional, and truly made it feel like a family event. The guests all raved about the food, as well as, how courteous and respectful FFC staff were. This was the best decision, and know for sure that in the future i will use Festive Food Caterers for events moving forward. To add, I am skeptical about finding people online, but this was truly the best decision. I can't imagine using someone else for this event. Chef Michel you are truly amazing, and were a godsend for this event. Keep up the amazing work that you do!

Laura and the wonderful staff with Sunflowers Catering and Event Planning receive 5 stars all around for pulling off a successful New Year’s Eve event for my 120 guests this weekend. Laura executed a delicious assortment of appetizers for our cocktail hour and pulled off an excellent dinner service, all without an on-site kitchen. Aside from catering our event, she went above and beyond to help me with rentals (oven, plate ware, flatware, glassware) table décor, etc!! My guests are still raving about the staff. They were not dealing with an easy crowd, but they remained professional, kind and friendly. I am so pleased with Sunflowers Catering and will definitely be using them and recommending them in the future!

We had a wonderful experience with Anne and First Bite Catering. We held a wine tasting and spanish dinner party for 25 guests. Anne was extremely responsive and helpful during the planning process. She was open to handling many details over and above the food prep and presentation. That was very helpful. And the food was wonderful! My guests raved about it. She and her staff were punctual and professional on the night of the event and cleaned up everything so I could enjoy the party and guests. I highly recommend First Bite and I will definitely hire them again. Thanks Anne!

Everything about 3R’s Catering & Events is amazing, from the beautiful work they put together to the amazing customer service and professionalism they provide. Regina stayed in contact with me throughout the whole month of my event. They made sure they had everything and was on time. The set up and decor was beautiful and I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. I will recommend people to reach out during their events. Thank so much 3R’s Catering and Events for everything.

Though we have only just hired Chef Mark to cater my daughter's wedding this coming fall, he has been a pleasure to work with. He is very accommodating and knowledgeable on everything to do with catering a wedding and we are comfortable knowing we're in good hands.

We absolutely LOVED everything about our experience with Outlaw BBQ as they catered our wedding. They went above and beyond when it came to feeding our guests and everything was absolutely delicious. They even made a tray of gluten free macaroni and cheese for us based on just us asking which of our dishes were gluten free for one of our guests, and she nearly cried with excitement--she hadn't had mac and cheese in years. Communicating with Rob was always easy and swift too. The catering they provided definitely was one of the major factors in our wedding celebration being a huge success. AND THE HAWAIIAN MEATBALLS!!! If all I ever ate again was their barbecue chicken, meatballs, and macaroni and cheese I would be happy. They brought their smoker on site and our guests could smell the delicious barbecue before our ceremony even started. We can't recommend Outlaw BBQ enough!!!
