Jen Royle, the owner of Dare To Taste, was amazing to work with and I highly recommend her and her staff for any of your catering needs. She was a pleasure to work with, easy to contact and always responded quickly. She is professional, down to earth and most importantly her food was amazing so much so that all of our guest wanted her business card! We had an issue at the banquet hall with electrical outlets. The hall was very rustic and I was a nervous wreck but Jen and her assistant rallied on and our guest never even realized their was an issue. Jen worked great under pressure and we could not have been happier with the way she handled our event, I would hire Jen again in a heartbeat!

Sara , Daniel and Richard came into our home and we turned our kitchen over to them. By the end of the evening party, they felt like family to us! The food was amazing and the presentation was visually beautiful! Our guests sent us notes afterwards praising the food and caterers!! They were GREAT!!

For more than 15 years I have been involved in fundraising. I have worked with dozens of caterers over these many years and I can confidently say that Cristo's Kitchen and Catering is the best that I have worked with. Outstanding service, detail oriented, professional, delicious food, honest and a great guy. Highly recommended and I look forward to working with them again.

Daniel is fantastic to work with! We used his services recently for a family reunion for 40 people. Every detail was looked after from start to finish. We started the evening with Daniel's famous cosmopolitans - DELICIOUS!! The cocktails were accompanied by a variety of appetizers but the big hit was his signature salsa made with avocado, pomegranate and kiwi - sounds odd but it was AMAZING!! We had a buffet selection for dinner and dessert and it was flawless. I can't say enough! Everything was wonderful and Daniel's expertise was clearly evident throughout every stage of our event from the planning to the execution. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

John and his team were very professional!! They performed duties beyond their scope because my event planner wasn't doing her job. They all-in-all were instrumental at making sure my guests, myself and husband were well taken care of, from bringing water and a platter of food out to us when pictures were being taken, communicating with our DJ in a professional manner which in turn prompted my DJ to make a public announcement on how spectacular J & L Catering was. If I hadn't mentioned, the food was fantastic. I had great reviews from my family and friends for days/weeks. I would whole heartedly recommend John of J & L Caterers for all weddings.

I think it is a resounding testimony when guests at a party are taking a photo of a persons business card during an event. Everything William did was impeccable, and made himself totally available during the event. I would (and will) recommend William to anyone that ever asks me about potential caterers for any event. I have no faults whatever to highlight, I'm sure that if I asked William to mow the lawn as part of festivities preparation that he would have done it without question.

My company has used Hostess Catering for dinner 4 nights a week for over year. They are flexible, professional, creative and dependable. It's very hard to satisfy a large group every night with many different tastes, diets and eating habits. These ladies always come up with a fun menu every week that appeals to meat lovers and vegetarians. Hostess even catered our Holiday Party in December of 2014 and did all the planning from menus to table settings to waitstaff. They worked hard and I looked like a Super Star! These women do a knock out job and no job is too big for them to handle.

Soraya was heaven sent! We had an out-of-state wedding, living in NY to wed in Quincy, MA. I had no idea where to begin with hair, makeup, venues, flowers, favors, transportation, rehearsal and dinner... that's where Soraya came in a saved me! She made all the right connections, and made my day a day to remember! Professional, timely, creative, knowledgeable, and soooooo helpful from the time I first spoke to her to the thank you's! I went from stressed out to stress free! I strongly recommend her. A go-getter!

We organized a lunch and dinner for about 30 people over the course of 6 days. The food was imaginative, delicious and affordable. I would hire Lori for a similar event in a split second without a second thought. Wonderful service, efficient and friendly.

I found Malone Catering on Thumbtack while assisting my son to find a caterer for his wedding. When I first saw the menus and prices I really thought I had to be misunderstanding, His prices are so reasonable that I could not believe he was in any way related to other wedding caterers. It seems that all wedding services have a 4X markup and we really needed to stay within a very frugal budget. I called Chef Marty and found him to be very easy to work with and very accommodating and I sent his info to my son immediately. The wedding last Sunday at Camp Kiwanee was beautiful and the guests raved about the delicious food. We had requested a buffet style and Marty and his staff did the serving. Absolutely wonderful. And I cannot say enough about his staff. They were so unobtrusive I never noticed them clearing after dinner but they did an incredible job. And every one of them was friendly and helpful and seemed happy to be there. I know my son and is new wife were extremely pleased with Malone Catering. We will not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a quality caterer at a reasonable price.

Where to start...from our first contact to the seeing the kitchen totally clean after cooking the most fabulous food and serving at our party of 100 or intimate dinner for 14-it was all perfection. I can't wait for the next event-my only fear-Renee will become so sought after that she may be busy.....I know to book way in advance!

Chef Stephen is a very talented Chef. We met 11 years ago and Chef Stephen gave me many cooking lessons in my home in addition we worked on special projects in public schools, catered dinners, culinary outings and a whole lot of fun and learning. My teenage son has taken cooking lessons and loves every taste and the fun and seriousness of Chef Stephens approach to teaching. I think Chef Stephen has an esthetic that pleases the eyes, the mouth, the tummy and many many people off all ages...we think he is a gift to the Culinary World!

I've worked with Chef Michael on many occasions ranging from intimate dinner parties to larger-scale holiday gatherings. Not only does he possess multifaceted culinary talent and knowledge, but he is also one of the most kind and patient men in the industry. His cheerful demeanor and grace under pressure make working with him an absolute pleasure. Anyone seeking someone with his level of expertise need look no further.

Working with Aipyn has been a treat. I have used the company for two different parties. People from both parties are still talking about the food, the wonderful service, and the lovely chef. The food is beyond words. I can’t wait for my next event this summer. Best wishes, and thank you again.

Sam and his staff catered our nonprofit organization's annual Sandra K Russell Derby Day Benefit for MitoAction a few weeks ago and it was beyond amazing! Our attendees and staff cannot say enough great things about the Merrimack Event team. From start to finish, Sam was polite, attentive, and efficient. He worked with our budget and understood the complexity of the event. Sam went above and beyond to help decorate the event venue beautifully and of course, have his chef design an out of this world Southern Fare dinner menu to match our event's theme. Everyone was so pleased with the delicious food, and has told us out of the 8 years we have hosted this event - this one was truly the best. We cannot wait to use Simply Elegant Catering again next year! Thank you again Sam and team!

It was an amazing experience, from start to finish. Her menu selections were perfect for an early Summer Dinner Party for eight. The drinks were out of this world, the appetizers were tremendous, the dinner- truly delicious, and the desert, fantastic! They arrived on time, were unassuming and completely professional and the kitchen was magically spotless when they left. Cheers to Mary and Gathered Table!!
