Chef Cristo and his team did a great job catering my son's 1st birthday fiesta! The quantity and flavors were great and they did an excellent job serving and telling folks what everything was etc. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food! I would highly recommend Cristo's kitchen to anyone and will likely use them in the future!

Jen is amazing. I had no idea what having a chef in our home would be like, and it exceeded my expectations. It was such a pleasure to have Jen in our home, and we fell in love with her personality just as much as her food. She gave a small cooking lesson to my wife and her 10 friends for her birthday and then fed them a five-course meal. Everyone loved the food and is still talking about it. But they also loved meeting Jen, and to us, that was just as important. I wouldn't hesitate to hire her again.

William has been providing personal chef services for my family for a few months now. I can't say enough positive things about him as well as his food! It is like bringing a five star chef into your home. William's food is superb - expertly made, beautifully prepared and plated (if you want) and delicious. William is a pleasure to have in our home as well and works with you to develop the menu and is open to suggestions and feedback. I would highly recommend him for catering and personal chef services.

My experience with Sara's Cooking was most positive. Our son and fiance sadly needed to postpone their wedding plans a few weeks before the actual wedding date. Because so many people had made plans, purchased airline tickets...etc. We decided to turn our lemons into lemonade by hosting a friends and family event on the date the wedding would have been. We had committed to having Sara's Cooking for the wedding and now we needed to switch gears in changing our venue. Sara graciously and easily accommodated our switch and do so with utmost kindness. The food was most incredible with an international flare, home cooked goodness and beautiful presentation. I purposely had chosen Sara's Cooking because her menu selections grabbed my attention right away. My husband and I were not disappointed and neither were our guests. The chefs are topnotch, pay careful attention to detail, friendly, fun and were most accommodating to all our needs as we hosted our gathering. I will always recommend them and use them again for future events.

John & Laurel (THE J&L) are fantastic to work with. They take a concept, add their own creative spark to it and deliver a product that exceeds all expectations. Laurel is organized and attentive, while Chef John is amazing. His flair for presentation gives a special look that adds to the taste of the food.

Lori, her partner Sam and her staff made my small event seamless. Lori and I were able to effectively communicate via email and text a half a dozen times in the span of 17 days which proved a tremendous value for me in terms of my time and energy. The team were prompt, professional, friendly, anticipated my needs and stayed on top of everything all night. They met and exceeded all my expectations and received rave reviews from my 50 guests. Chef Jim and Crew Debbie and Jim - I welcome you back anytime. It was so much fun to work with you. Chef Jim - The food and presentation was awesome and abundant. Thank you! Debbie and Jim - thank you for staying on top of the time and making it effortless for me to stay on schedule and stlll be able to enjoy the party with my guests. I look forward to working with all of you again.

This past Sunday, Renee catered an engagement brunch for 33 people in our Needham home. I was a bit hesitant at first choosing Renee as I did not know anyone who had used her. After checking out her website and talking to her on the phone, I was confident I had chosen the right caterer for our celebration. Renee listened to my ideas and created a menu that was both elegant and rustic at the same time. Her food was out of this world and the presentation equally as brilliant. If you are looking for a special caterer with a special talent (think design and top chef) Renee is the one! I look forward to working with her again .

Hostess Catering made our Division Holiday party so spectacular. The food was amazing, and I really appreciated the effort they put into helping us customize the menu. At the event itself, all staff were extremely professional, friendly and efficient. Everyone was raving about how much they liked the set-up and food, and the hosts (who held the event at their home in Brookline), said it was the least stressful event they'd ever been a part of. Our ONLY complaint is that, although we stressed that we had a few lactose-intolerant guests, the rice pilaf had butter in it, which we think could have been avoided and allowed for more options for the few who couldn't eat milk products. Otherwise, GREAT EVENT. Thanks ladies!

Chef Marty and his team provided appetizers, main meal, desserts, bar service, linens and dinnerware for our recent Holiday Party_12/6/13. Chef Marty was a delight to work with, he was responsive to our menu requests & updates; the request for a vegan meal was provided without a hitch. Pricing for our Holiday Party was fabulous, as a volunteer organization, we are always looking for the best for our dollars. The best review to offer was the request for business cards from the attendees! The serving staff were friendly and accommodating to last minute requests. I will keep Malone Catering's contact information near by!

I can’t say enough good things about Katie Barry! Not only is she an amazing chef, she is an amazing person! I am currently battling stage III breast cancer and foundation4love sent her to us for a special date night. Katie presented such amazing courses for us, we loved each and every item that she made. All were delicious & healthy. We not only highly recommend Katie but we hope to have her back one day to host a dinner party. 5 stars!

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.
