Totally pleased with the food and service provided by Christopher's Catering for our Christmas party -- the food was great, folks arrived on time, were a complete pleasure, everything flowed very smoothly and our guests had a great time - I will use them again! Best part of all…. they cleaned everything up and I went to bed!

Jen catered our wedding. She and her team were fantastic! Jen was warm and accommodating throughout the planning, preparing, catering, and cleaning process. What a joy and pleasure during an ex citing and streetlights time. And she was a trooper on a hot and humid July day when the oven gave out! They shuttled back and forth to a neighbor 's house using their kitchen too! None of the guests knew there was a problem. The food was fabulous, light, summer perfect. Lemon sole, chicken marsala, huge antipasto boat, strawberry shortcake. I think her coconut shrimp were an especially big hit. Hire her! Hire her! Hire her! She's the best! You won't be sorry.

William Ference Catering catered our wedding and did a truly outstanding job. The food was top notch and the prices were fair. Everyone at our wedding kept coming up to me and telling me how delicious everything was. William went above and beyond every step of the way. He was always available whenever we needed to ask a question or had any concerns before the wedding. In addition to the wonderful food William had some of the best catering staff that I have ever seen. I have worked in food service on and off for years and know how hit or miss people can be. His team out performed anything that I had ever seen. When we arrived to the venue, I was greeted by one of his guys that immediately ran up and asked what he could help me with. I was very impressed and certainly needed the help. The team would constantly be aware when drinks were getting low and would immediately ask if anyone needed a refresher. Nobody really ever had to wait in line for a drink and the tram did a great job keeping everything stocked and clean. I would highly recommend William Ference Catering for any event and especially if you’re getting married, you WON’T be disappointed.

John was terrific to work with. He brought along two very competent staff members to help out. The food overall was very good. The one part of dinner which I wasn't crazy about was the desert but that was a matter of my selection from an extensive menu. One problem with the equipment that we rented was it two tablecloth or twice the size they should've been. Overall the evening went very well and I would definitely recommend J&L catering to other people.

We had a house party that was for about 35 guests and we hired Daniel for the catering. It was the best decision we made! The food was amazing, from the hot appetizers to the main courses (chicken, beef) to the variety of desserts- it was all delicious. I couldn't believe how many guests commented about the food and the presentation. And the presentation was certainly unique- he served the entrees in giant martini glasses so that we could stand and mill about while holding food. Fantastic idea. Daniel first came over to our house to check out the layout and kitchen and we went over the menu and how we were going to set everything up. This helped to make sure that everything on the day of the party went smoothly. He had a server (his daughter) and she was such a huge help and worked very hard. Together, they took care of everything related to the food - everything! All the food was fresh and cooked right in the kitchen so we weren't eating reheated food. They not only cooked here and served, but they took care of the clean up and packaged and put away all the extra food for us. They took all the stress away from planning a party and we were left to enjoy ourselves. We had so many people we hadn't seen for years that it was wonderful to just relax and enjoy the conversation and food with them. I can't recommend Daniel highly enough. We would definitely hire him again!

I used Lori's catering services for a small get together and birthday party for about 30 people. Since I was a novice at party giving, Lori was very good about checking in with me along the way and making suggestions about both the menu and the setup. We had more than enough food which had been a particular worry of mine since I could not picture amounts. The party was for noon on a Sunday and I elected to do sort of a blend between a brunch and a lunch. In particular, the strata, mango salad and berry fruit salad were the most popular and I found that the dressings, sauces and spreads that accompanied the food were what added to the uniqueness of the ham, rolls and other salads. Everything was tasty and fresh. The delivery person was on time and helpful with food placement as it was a buffet style. The dishes were all set to go on platters and we supplied the serving utensils and beverages. I would certainly recommend Lori for whatever occasion you might need these services.

So glad I hired Hostess for my wedding! I initially signed because of the low price relative to other options, and throughout our meetings it became more and more clear what a huge value the company provides. Donna was my main contact and was such a ray of sunshine! They both took away any worry I had about catering, decoration, really the "event" part of the wedding at all. The reception venue definitely needed some sprucing up, and Hostess catering came together as a pretty full-service party planner. They bought decorations based on my budget as well as using those I brought and decorated the venue so it looked amazing! They took a lot of moving pieces and made them into a very smooth event.

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.

Gathered Table catered a wedding in my home of 30 adults and some kids. Mary was wonderful to work with - they accommodated a very short timeline and she was wonderful about the menu and allowing me plenty of time for modifications and changes. She was laid back and relaxed, which helped ease my anxiety. The group was half Brazilian and half American, so they also made both Brazilian and American specialties. The food was awesome! They were extremely reliable and showed up with the right number of staff members to service the crowd well. The only negative was that we asked for leftover food to be left with us since we paid for it, but my guests saw them leaving with a lot of the food they brought in. Perhaps we ate most of the food and didn't really have leftovers, however this was not communicated with me or with my sister, who was communicating directly with them when I was not able to. My only suggestion would be to clarify this upfront. Late night when there were only 10 of us left having fun, we would have loved to dig in for more food!

    This event the people would be about up to 50 guests. Possibly just a few more or less then the 50. We are looking for very cost efficient quotes for this wedding. As family will be helping for this. The food we are looking for is casual as it is in a hall. The hall fits 175 people but however we are very intimate people and are not crazy about big crowds but are willing to go the catering route for the right price. The date of our wedding is September 7th, 2013. So close but it's our day. We would need the caterer to be there for about 11:30 ish as the guests are set to arrive at 12 PM. Thank you so much. If any questions please advise. Thank you so much for looking at this.
