I had Dare to Taste do my Holiday Party on 12-13-15 at my 55 plus community clubhouse in Westboro Ma. Jen Royles service and food presentation is beyond words. I would recommend her to anyone for any type of an event she is a amazing person in her cooking and personality. Thank you so much Jen for a outstanding job and hope to see you again in the near future. Mary Walters

Sara and her team provided fantastic catering services to a house party of forty people. Sara customized the menu and provided the right service and peace of mind to the host for the occasion. Guests gushed at the exquisite spread and food. Where so many caterers are high priced and rigid, Sara's courtesy, professionalism, flexibility, responsiveness and affordability back an art form.

The short version: we hired Daniel for our wedding of 89 people. He is an excellent cheff, he makes high quality delicious food and at a very reasonable price. He delivered exactly what we were looking for and more. The longer version if you have time: we found Daniel on this website, or he found us when we posted an inquiry. We were unsure if the event would be 150 people or 90 as we invited many from oversees. He had a proposed menu with pricing within hours. Within a day we had spoken on the phone and were Confirmed for our wedding 8 months or so away. As we weren't living in California we could not meet in person but reading Daniels reviews and speaking with him instilled confidence in our choice. Additionally I did reach out to another caterer to get a price check as it was recommended I do so from a friend. And when I opened the local companies quote I discovered they charges 3 times the price Daniel does, and were only offering a few appetizers, mains and a couple side dishes with 1 dessert. For 1/3 the price Daniel provided us with: 6 hot appetizers, cold station with dips and crudite upon guest arrival, delicious beef, a creamy chicken pesto with noodles, salmon with red pepper, salad w/ Gorgonzola and pear, rolls, roasted vegetables, AND many delicious desserts: creme brûlée, brownies, macaron (a surprise cookie as my family is French), coffee and tea -- and more I'm likely forgetting. He also provided licensed bartenders and a full staff. We provided our own alcohol and they did a very nice job with serving. Before the event Daniel prepared a "tasting" which I assumed meant a small sample of foods for the wedding. He came to our house with enough food to feed 6 of us for 3 days!!! And it was phenomenal. While with us he offered a place in his home for my family in France to stay if they needed. I'm not sure if I was more overjoyed by his kind, generous, caring and wonderful personality or his amazing culinary skills. We knew he was the BEST choice because not only would we get a great product from him but he as a person would add joy to the most joyful day of our lives. And on our wedding day 2 days ago, we heard comments about how delicious the food was from many of our guests. I attempted to try everything and was very pleased with the results (though I must admit my happiness interfered with my appetite on the day--but that's ok because I have leftovers to feed us for a week). One guest came up to me and said it was the best wedding food she had ever had. Giving our friends and family a delicious meal and great experience was so important to me and Daniel made that possible. I didn't see him until after the meal as the night was getting later but when I did it lit up my night even more! He and his beautiful wife were smiling as they worked in the kitchen and gave us such sweet wedding wishes. It was quite meaningful to me to be treated like a friend as well as with professionalism. If you are looking for a caterer with exceptional food, a wonderful personality, and great prices Daniel is your best choice. I would recommend him for an event of any size and Daniel, we will be contacting you in the future if we are ever looking for a caterer. Thank you so much!!!

I found J&L on the internet. Took a chance as I needed to find a catering company with 4 days notice. J&L was outstanding! They were very responsive, extremely friendly, detailed oriented, and delivered exactly what they promised! The food was delicious! I'm so happy that I found them.

William catered our family style wedding reception for 170 people at a private venue and we could not be happier. Not only is the food he cooks amazing, the service he provides is second to none. Prior to reaching out to William, we had been working with another larger, better known, and well-reviewed catering company. They turned out to be entirely unhelpful, unwilling to offer alternatives to help keep our budget manageable and did not take kindly to any requests outside their standard menu and offerings. After eating the deposit on our first caterer, we gave William a call and he provided the exact opposite experience. From our first phone call until after the event was over, he was wonderful to work with. He helped us with crafting a menu, determining alcohol volume (we had a backyard wedding), cocktail and reception layout, and even timeline. He was always very quick to respond, made extremely helpful suggestions, worked around our schedules (and held the tasting in our apartment), accommodated changes to dishes to make sure we got exactly what we wanted, provided more food (and rentals!) for far less money than other caterers we assessed, and had an extremely professional service staff. After it was all over, he put some leftover food in our fridge and my wife and I were able to enjoy it again for dinner the following night with a bottle of champagne. If you're looking for a caterer that really cares not only about the food that he cooks but also about you and making your event amazing, you've already found him.

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.

Words cannot describe how happy my wife and I are with SYB Event planning and Soraya for planning an amazing 1st Birthday Party for my daughter, this past August. From the day I found her up until the party, she has been nothing but helpful, supportive and very creative. SYB Event Planning also supplied the catering to us as well, from their catering division. The food and service was very good!! All my guests were very happy on how beautiful and fun the party was. I will definitely considering hiring Soraya again for future events. Both the catering and the planning are highly recommended!

Working with Natural Foods was an absolute pleasure. From the initial contact through to the end, it was so easy. I was looking for a caterer for my housewarming party of 60. I really appreciated the focus on sustainable & seasonal. I was able to give Mr. Sawicki the framework of what I was looking for and he created such a unique & varied menu, I really felt like he listened and delivered on the party I was trying to create. My friends raved about the stuffed figs and amazing entrees! (the fish was amazing!) It was so easy to enjoy my party and so stress free. Professional, unique and you could see all the special touches. Natural Foods will be catering more of my parties, now I just need to have more reasons for parties!

Claudia Denelle of That's Tasty Catering was referred to us May 2015 by the Wedding Event Coorinator of Brockton's Fuller Craft Museum. We were more than pleased with the results. With only 3 months to prepare for our August wedding, Ms. Denelle and her husband Dave, met with us at her lovely Brockton home. They subsequently prepared a proposal for a delicious menu of hot and cold hors d'oeuvres, entrees, desserts, and summer beverages for 120 guests. In the process we learned of Mr. and Mrs. Denelle's excellent qualifications, and local reputation. We found our confidence in her compay was not misplaced. Mr. and Mrs. Denelle were both personable, and professional in all our communication, and very responsive as we finalized and coordinated our plans with the Museum staff, ordering all our linens and dinnerware through her. We were very pleased with the quality of the dinner buffet and service, my mother and her friends especially loved the chicken bites with homemade marinara sauce! It was a pleasure working with the Denelles. We could not have done it without you, and we want you to know how much we appreciate your being a part of our special day. Again, we thank you and wish you well.

I hired Deirdre to be a part of a wedding team for my client's backyard wedding. As a professional wedding planner with more than ten years planning weddings for a wide range of clients, I can tell you that the scenario we presented to Slavin in the Kitchen was one that would have sent most caterers running in the opposite direction - due to a series of mishaps out of our control, we were at a very late stage in the wedding planning process without a caterer or a plan for food. Deirdre and her team not only came through for us, but they provided multiple options for us to choose from and even patiently waited for my clients to make a decision - as a planner, this was a complete godsend, the last thing I want is to have clients who feel rushed, pressured and/or panicked. The day of the wedding, Deirdre set up a beautiful display for our clients and their guests to enjoy. She also ensure that every vendor was fed - something most caterers don't take the initiative to do. Her team was professional, the food was delicious and the presentation exceeded expectations. I'm keeping Deirdre's name at the top of my list for catering needs and look forward to working with her on future projects.

Kendra catered a 50th birthday dinner for 80 people. Her food was outstanding, beautifully presented, and absolutely fresh and delicious. Her attention to detail was noticed by all my guests who immediately took her card! The beautifully presentation means as much to Kendra as how delicious her food is. I highly recommend Kendra and her staff for all your catering needs!
