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.

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 planned a birthday party for my husband and following a friend's recommendation I hired Ben as the caterer. The food was AMAZING!! He made all appetizer/ finger foods and everything was delicious. My husband loved it and all our guests raved about the food. His prices are very reasonable and he was easy to work with- we'll definitely be using him again.

Daniel catered my daughter's graduation from high school/18th birthday. We have family members that are used to high end catering experiences. All were quite impressed. Daniel did a phenomenal job. The quality far exceeded expectations, the presentation was breathtaking. Daniel sat with my daughter and me to understand what we hoped to achieve and exceeded our expectations. I would use Daniel's catering services for both personal and work related functions and would recommend Daniel as caterer of choice.

I had a small function with 30 people and every thing was perfect. The appetizer selection was beautifully presented and had wonderful flavor, Julie was very helpful in selections and extremely easy to work with. I would never use anyone else again. People that live in Boston can have a hard time finding a caterer for a small event. She was wonderful..

Vanessa was a fantastic server for our party, and she also helped my caterer prep the food. She was very easy and pleasant to work with, and everything went off smoothly in the kitchen. I would certainly hire Vanessa again!

My husband and I hired S.Y.B Catering and Bar Services - a Division of S.Y.B Event Planning Services, for our wedding at the Waterworks Museum this past September and the entire staff, particularly Owner and our Day of Coordinator Soraya Y. Belgacem , were incredible to work with. We came to her not even a month before our date because our caterer we originally had backed out due to a death in the family. She met with us at the Waterworks, we chose her over another caterer because she was familiar with the venue, as it is not your typical lay out. She showed us her sample menu, listened to what we wanted and then gave us her opinion. She was even able to add table cloths, tables and chairs, to our order as the other caterer was handling that. Her staff, bartenders and catering team came in early, set up everything, decorated the tables. Everything looked AMAZING and we both were very happy. The food was also amazing, almost not your "typical" boring wedding foods. We wanted a social type of party, so we did lots of fun passed appetizers, chicken and waffle skewers, spinach and feta cigars, ahi tuna tar tar that they served on a spoon, mini Swedish meatballs, which came out on mini plates and mini forks (So cute!!) The food stations were also set up, very nicely. Since they specialize in Mediterranean, we did some fresh sea-foods, which were amazing and a Middle Eastern station, we never tasted Hummus like that before!! The bar service was great, amazing bartender, fun and happy. We did a custom cocktail - that was a pink and blue color, it tasted amazing. We even had champagne handed out as people walked in through the doors. Soraya handled everything to a T, we did not have to worry about anything. ALL of her staff were so professional and worked very hard! They even wrapped up some left overs for our after party! We can’t thank S.Y.B Event Planning Services and Soraya enough for helping to make our wedding day so wonderful!

Donna and Visnja were amazing! It was my first timing looking for caterers and I had a great experience. I primarily spoke with Donna and she was so bubbly, polite, and professional. She was quick to answer any of my questions and was very accommodating. I had a large family party but did not want to have a formal sit down dinner, so I opted for 3 of their food stations-the boardwalk, the skewer and the salad stations. They set everything up buffet style so my guests could eat at their choosing. I got so many compliments on the food! I was especially pleased to hear that the vegetarians of the group loved having so many tasty options (from the salad station). Next time I need to cater an event I know who to call. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for a caterer!

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.

John was a delight to work with! I hosted a Bridal Shower Brunch for my daughter with 45 guests, and the food received rave reviews. There was more than enough for everyone and just enough leftovers for me and a few friends to enjoy later. John's attention to detail and his service is excellent. I received five quotes from Thumbtack for caterers and J & L had the best selection, best pricing and best professional and friendly approach.

Really can't ask for more from William and his team. We've had them for a few events - a summer party last year and a couple cocktail events at our home this winter. Great food, and super easy to work with. All-around, much higher quality than other caterers we've hired in the past.

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.
