    We hired Gaston and his team to cater our wedding this past April. The food at our reception was even more delicious than we remembered from our tasting! Our guests raved about how good everything was. Other than the servers being a little slower than I would have liked them to be (some of our guests waited a while until their food was brought to them), our experience with Gaston was wonderful. Him and Kathy are easy to work with and always accommodating. It's been a pleasure and we are so happy we chose Gaston's Culinary Services!

    Event Catered by Gaston
    I was extremely pleased with Gaston's catering. From the beginning his professionalism, attention to detail, and timeliness made the transaction a pleasure. That coupled with delicious food, which was attractively presented, generous in quantity and complete with all details, I couldn't be happier. The party was a success and I am certain Gaston will receive additional business opportunities from my guests. I will certainly be a return customer.

    Good food, great attitude.
    Did a great job of working with our federal inter-agency task force outdoors in not the greatest of conditions. Initially I chose Gaston's for lower cost and the convienience (for us) of having a menu to choose from.

    I hired Gaston's Culinary Services to cater our Christmas dinner for our manufacturing facility of about 130 employees. We had 2 services - 1 for our first shift and office personnel and a 2nd for our 2nd shift crew. They did an outstanding job and everyone was very pleased with the food and the service. I took a chance on hiring them just from reading reviews and I have to say that it was definitely worth it. The food was delicious - fresh and hot. The servers set everything up, served, and cleaned everything afterwards - they took care of it all. I had many employees comment to me about how great the food was. There is no doubt that I will be using them again. Thank you to all who helped make this dinner service exceptional.

    We had an almost impossible task, to feed 101 people (82 of them teenagers, and professional dancers) lunch and dinner for 15 days straight (at our remote location) without a break. We had vegans, vegetarians, and carnivores with very specific dietary needs. Gaston's Culinary Services came through for us with flying colors! The menu was always varied and delicious, and all the while within our strict dietary needs and budget. They were always on time (early) and well prepared. The staff was supportive and helpful at every turn. As Program Director for a summer training program, and being responsible for over 100 people, I can truly say that Gaston's took a weight off my shoulders. At least the food was something I did not have to worry about. :) I can wholeheartedly recommend Gaston's Culinary Services for any event or occasion. Not only will you will not regret it, you'll be very glad you chose them. Thank you Gaston and Kathy. We look forward to a long a prosperous relationship. See you next summer :) David Sabella Program Director, Broadway Theatre Project

    Gaston's went far beyond our expectations. The staff is friendly, and did everything we needed without even being asked. Many of our event details were taken care of for us so we could concentrate on our guests. The Chef created a personalized meal that catered to our event, with some very special menu requests and was spectacular. The entire experience of our event was made because of Gaston's and we cannot be more grateful. We will definitely recommend to all of our friends, and even use them again for future events ourselves!

    We hired Gaston to cater my husband's office Christmas party at our house which comprised of about 24 guests. Everybody loved the food, especially the teriyaki meatballs and chicken marsala. They were excellent! I especially enjoyed the cheese tray as it wasn't your typical run-of-the-mill cheese tray -- many different varieties and all good! Gaston delivered everything himself and was on time and helpful in explaining how to set everything up as we didn't want servers. Overall it was a great experience and we would hire them again.

Thank You Chef and assistants. Lucy Carroll

    I hired Gaston's Culinary Services for an event held on Sept. 6th. I highly recommend them for your next event or party. Kathy was great in responding in a prompt manner to my questions in a pleasant, professional manner. The website was great to show the different options available. There were so many choices in the food selections which is the main reason I decided to give them a try. The food was delivered on time before the event. Chef Gaston was great in explaining which sauces go for which item. He also double checked the order when dropping off the food. During the entire party and even now, I heard so many comments about how great the food was and was asked who was the catering company who did such a great job! Thank you all at Gaston's Culinary Services for such an outstanding job!

    Chef Gaston was a pleasure to work with. Being a punctual person, I like things to be on time and according to a schedule. Chef and his team showed up early, and were ready to go at the time we requested (even if our guests weren't ready). The food was excellent and I asked a few party-goers and they all indicated that the food was very good. We tried to get a caterer through some of the local, well-known caterers and I will tell you that Chef Gaston was 10x easier to work with and is much cheaper than those places. Also most catering places charge you an arm and a leg for catering staff, but Chef Gaston's staff was included in the price. I wouldn't think twice about hiring Chef Gaston for my next event.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Never feel rushed on let a caterer convince you of what the think you may want, but instead create an event around your expectations.
