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.

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!

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!

We hired Gordon for a very important dinner event and he delivered! Gordon showed up fully prepared and excited to be a part of a special evening. He set up, cook, cleaned and packed up everything to make it a perfect evening. His food selections and presentation was top notch. I would not hesitate asking him to work another event or recommending him for your event. Do yourself a favor and hire this chef!

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!

We hired Vickie for the Baby Shower. Vickie did an amazing job decorating the event hall. My wife was excited after seeing the arrangements that Vickie made. She was thrilled and happy that the event was well panned and managed. All the guests were also impressed with the event (decoration and planning). It was one of the best days of our life. All the credit goes to Vickie for making this event a memorable one.

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!

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!

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

    I have hired Gerry for large cocktail parties as well as smaller intimate dinners Gerry and his team are amazing. His food is not only good but memorable - guests talk about it long after the party or dinner. There is always a variety of flavors and textures. His food is innovative and fun. In addition to amazing food he is extremely professional. I can’t recommend him enough for an event. You (and your palate) won’t be disappointed.

    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!
