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.

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 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.

Sarah came through for our firm in a very short amount of time right before Christmas. We had a wonderful, savory, holiday luncheon that Sarah prepared and served us with all the accoutrements one would expect from a top-notch Boston caterer. Fantastic! We'll be calling on her again for our next company function!

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.

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.

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!

If I could give Ken 10 stars I would. After getting my quote, I assumed the quality of the food would not be good because of the low price. Most caterers overcharge for weddings, but his quote was very affordable. All of the references I got were positive, the taste test exceeded expectations, then the actual food that we got the wedding day was just fantastic. We had about 100 people in Newport from a variety of backgrounds and the overwhelming consensus was that this was the best meal they've had at a wedding and it was healthy. He made us kale salad, quinoa salad, roast chicken, veggie lasagna, roast beef, and mixed veggies. The bar tending staff he brought was great and affordable too. And he brought plates and silverware which saved us a ton. I have no complaints and would enthusiastically recommend Ken for you wedding or other event.

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 was given several options for my son's graduation party based on the budget I had and the number of people I expected. All of the baked entrees were very tasty.Everyone in attendance thought I had ordered from a favorite local Italian restaurant we all like to frequent. The cheese and cracker tray also saved me a lot of time. I supplemented with my own large tossed salad and some of my own desserts. The food was delivered hot and ready to serve with heating trays and burners. There is enough to do at a party so it was a relief to have the main course taken care of. Leftovers for the family the next day are also nice to have when you are tired after a party so order accordingly. Cleanup is a breeze when you have throw away aluminum trays. I highly recommend this service as I have used other caterers and will use Malone Catering again based on this experience.

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 am so glad that I found Chef Michael Haigh to do the catering for my birthday party. He did not disappoint in any way.

Every year we do a thank you bbq to all those who participated in the cystic fibrosis walk for my daughters team. For the last 5 years I have had caterers that were just ok forcing me to look for another. This year fred and celebrations catered the event. It was amazing from the food, to the service. There was not one negative to mention. It was effortless for me which was great. I can't wait to use them again next year!!!! I am so happy not to have to look for any new caterers..Fred you won our hearts from your delicious food and service and the amazing attention to detail.

We had an Indian fusion wedding last weekend at an off-site venue, and Simply Elegant Catering did a fantastic job. We originally contacted SEC to provide full service catering and American style food, with the intent of having another restaurant provide Indian food. However, SEC’s chef offered to make the Indian food for our tasting, and it was delicious. As a result, SEC caterered both style menus. They also worked with us to develop a mostly vegetarian menu to meet the needs of the groom and many of our guests. A few of our guests actually commented that it was the best wedding food they’ve ever had. Sam of SEC was very helpful and responsive, and his entire staff seemed eager to work with us to help make our event run smoothly and meet our wishes. And SEC’s services were very reasonably priced. Overall, I can’t say enough good things about SEC, and would recommend them to anyone looking for delicious food with friendly service.

I needed a caterer for an event that I was having, and was given Stacey Blounts name and info. I was very satisfied with his professionalism and his food! He answered any and all questions that I had, he was easy to get in contact with and I never had to wait, he was always on point. He was on time, my guests loved him and his food! He was very personable! He will definitely be hired for my next event!

There's not enough space or time to explain how pleased we were with our pig roast. Thyme and Tide was very professional. The food was phenomenal. Everything was fresh. There was no hidden costs. Price was Fair. We even had leftovers! This guy knows food and he left no mess behind. He'll be back at our house again for many years to come.

Cindy was very easy to communicate with when arranging for a bar-tender to serve drinks at our 60 person function. The bar-tender she provided was excellent and everything went perfectly - I'd definitely use Catering for You again.
