From my first talk with Marylyn to last night when they left my house spotless, the whole experience with Marylyn and her staff was fantastic. I had never hired a caterer for a party before and I can't tell you how easy Marylyn make everything - to begin with, she had great recommendations for the menu, and really took care of everything, including arranging a last-minute request for a tent for the event! The day of the party she and her staff went above and beyond to make sure every detail of the party would go smoothly! My guests all commented about the WONDERFUL food and the friendly (and helpful!) bartender. You gave us a night to remember - thank you!

Rich is a great guy to work with. He provided a wonderful service through out my husband's 30th party. He is friendly, detail-oriented, thoughtful, and easy-going. I highly recommended Rich and I would work with him again. Plus, my guests love talking to him. Thanks Rich!

We hired Nate and his team to cater our backyard wedding party for 60 guests. They did a phenomenal job! We don't know whether we were happier with the excellent food or the superior service! We received rave reviews about the food from guests. Also, Nate and his team were proactive in helping us with set up as soon as they arrived on site and were right on time with everything: appetizers, followed by full dinner buffet, and then the cake (they even decorated and setup our cake table without any direction, beautifully). Throughout the event, Nate personally brought me and the groom plates of food, since we were so busy chatting with guests we hadn't tried any of the appetizers. Nate organized the flow of the tables for guests to approach the dinner buffet, without any instruction from us, so we didn't have to manage any of those details. Such a pro! We'd hire him again in a heartbeat!

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!

Gordon was a pleasure to work with. He called back within 24 hours of my request. His menu was quite extensive, I had also asked if he could do wine pairings for us as well. We love very strong charectered Red Wines. His pairings were spot on. He was polite, courteous, even funny (He Presented The Evenings Menu For Us) We Were A Party Of 20 People. His Servers were excellent, attentive & polite. We Will Use Him Again And Recomend Him To Family & Friends Anytime. Thank You White Wolf Chef. Nancy F.

I hired Platter Matters Catering for my 40th Birthday Party. Ivett did a phenomenal job planning the entire event! She took care of all the rentals and flower arrangements, too. Bernadett helped me create a custom menu(many allergies in the family). The staff was very friendly and professional. All of my guests raved about their food and service. My kitchen was left spottless at the end of the event. I highly recommend them!! Emily Westport, CT

Regina and her team were amazing! She catered a Bridal shower for me along with 5 other bridesmaid and the brides mom so you can imagine the amount of questions and wants we had! Regina was so patient and quick to respond. The day of was a gloomy day in NY with a race going on in the area but they delivered our vision beautifully!! And everyone loved the food and decor!! I would recommend 3rs to anyone looking for catering and party planning!!

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!

My pal and I hired Kendall and Gerry to cater our husbands' joint 50th birthday party in Bedford in 2008, to rave reviews from guests. They've since catered two graduation parties for me and another 50th for a friend. Such wonderful attention to detail, from designing signature cocktails to selecting a personalized menu with the freshest locally sourced food. They make sure that not only the guest of honor and guests had a good time, but the hosts as well. Most impressive to me--Kendall joined her staff in surprising our son at his ballgame themed graduation party wearing Yankees tees and caps--despite being Red Sox fans themselves. :-) Every event they've catered has been lovely from start to finish. I cannot recommend highly enough!

I found Clarendon Cuisines though thumbtack for my bridal shower last night and I couldn't be more happier because my gosh the food was excellent! I had a plated meal and everyone loved the dishes I chose. His staff were very attentive to my guests and the presentation was great! I was so blown away that me and my fiancé decided to use their services for our wedding this fall!

Susan was fantastic from the start! She provided a great menu and a quote within my budget. I am a meeting planner and I work with caterers twice a year, all over the US. Few have offered to stay on site during meal service and that was a very special perk that Seaflour offers. I love the personal touch, and the attention to detail. I would work with her again anytime and wish I could clone her for other meeting locations!

All I have to say is..WOW, what a great job, the food was excellent and looked so appetizing, Joe at Angelos Market was so much fun and funny he really made this experience unforgettable and a success, it was like eating food my grandmother made when I was a kid. I have a 50th birthday party to plan later this year and I already know who is catering that party and I think I'm going to use there venue this time what a beautiful hall. Thanks Joe for making my party a success.

My name is Ms. Lola Nathan, a recently retired Public School Administrator. It gives me great pleasure to write this review for Gwen Robinson. I've known Gwen for over 30 years and our best times have been spent singing and cooking. She specializes in vegetarian, vegan, cooked, and raw foods. We have spent many hours preparing dishes like vegan potato salad, whole wheat dinner rolls, vegetarian meat loaf, roasted veggies, vegan eggplant parmigiana, raw seasoned kale, baked sweet potatoes, vegan burgers, all types of potatoes, every kind of vegetable, fruit, cake, apple crisp and so much more. Our latest collaboration was vegan lentil loaf in which we added organic shredded carrots, organic chopped celery, organic chopped onions, ground flax seed, nutritional yeast, liquid smoke and some seasonings to our organic lentils. It was so delicious that the guests I invited for dinner wanted to take slices of the lentil loaf home for the next day. Juicing is an integral part of our health practices. One of our most healthful combinations is kale, spinach, celery, carrots, and a touch of ginger, all organic! We know it's best to juice our vegetables and eat our fruit. Juiced veggies go straight to our cells giving strength and vitality to our whole body. Fruit we eat raw because this way cleanse our digestive system. Gwen prepares excellent fruit platters! Gwen is busy but she makes time for people like me who care about their health and want great tasting food. It doesn't take us long to do anything. I get all the ingredients, she does the preparing with me. Sometimes I just have her prepare meals for me for special occasions! She gets rave reviews, is easy to work with and is patient with all whom she is instructing. Gwen has taught many of my associates and friends how to make different tasty entrées and treats. She has no problem sharing recipes and keeps some with her. Young and old alike love whatever she prepares. She makes her own dough, from scratch, for fried dough & pizzas! Wonderful!! She is one of the best vegetarian Chef's I know. Always rave reviews! Always!! We know her as Ms. G, the personal vegan chef. Truly, Ms. Lola Nathan

Jane's catering service was absolutely perfect. She showed up early for the party our family had, worked diligently throughout to upkeep platters, refill drinks, clean up empty items, and inform guests as to where they could find items (e.g. napkins, plastic ware, etc.). Most importantly, the logistics above would have traditionally been handled by a family member, which would strip them from being able to truly relax and enjoy the time with the other family members there. She handled this while everyone was able to partake and enjoy the party. The cost was reasonable and within our budget. Overall, she was great and when our family decides to do another party, she will be getting a call from us. Thank you Jane, very much!
