When my fiance first told me about Jen and her company Dare to Taste I was a little wary to be honest. One look at her website and her accolades and I immediately thought it was going to break the bank on our already small budget and to be honest her services seemed a little out of our league. I was quickly proven wrong however. Planning a wedding is no easy task and especially planning a wedding on your own with several different vendors. Jen made the entire process pretty easy. She adhered to our budget and provided us with several different options. On the day of Jen and her staff were there early and ready to go. They asked a few questions but for the most part they took care of everything and the questions they did ask were about what WE wanted and how WE wanted things done. We wanted our wedding to be fun and a little less formal because that's the kind of people we are and we could not have picked a better caterer to accomplish that. The food was great and the Smores bar was a huge hit with our guests. I'd recommend Jen and her people to anyone who's looking for a professional and also someone who's fun to work with. My wife and I could not say enough good things about her.

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.

Chef Cristo was excellent! Of all the caterers with whom I was in contact, he was the only one to provide acustom menu for our themed Octoberfest. He worked with me on menu edits and cane within my budget and was a great communicator. The food was delicious! We had the party for 30 caterer and asked for a grillmaster and second person to make sure the party went smoothly. They showed up on time with all of their top notch equipment and quickly set up (and were even nice to my very curious 3-year-old). Throughout the party, they were discreet and cleaned up behind our guests and I was able to host. When the party was wrapping up they tidied up all of their equipment without my even noticing and were ready to go once the party wound down. I merely had to close the door when the party was over and my house was totally in order. It was a dream! All of our guests told me afterwards how much they enjoyed the food - even our very finicky Vegan guest who was able to tell what she could eat because the chef provided a full ingredients list. To boot, this is a family business with a great family. Go with Chef Cristo!

Daniel catered a backyard party for 70 to celebrate my son's upcoming marriage. He designed a fabulous menu and was a pleasure to deal with before the event. On the evening of the party, the temperatures were in the 90's and it was very humid and Daniel was working out of a kitchen that was barely air-conditioned. Despite these tough conditions, the food was fabulous. We had a Mediterranean platter, about six passed appetizers and beef with mashed potatoes and a fish dish with mashed potatoes served in martini glasses. We also had an assortment of delicious mini pastries, cookies and brownies for dessert. Our guests RAVED about the food and it was plentiful. We had two servers (one was Daniel's daughter) who were delightful and a bartender who was very warm and kind (guests commented on how great she was). Right before dessert, it started to rain, and we had to quickly move indoors and Daniel and his crew did this effortlessly. Daniel left the kitchen where he worked (our next neighbor's house) spotless. I would hire Daniel again in an instant - his food made the party and we got very, very, very positive feedback from all of our guests.

Jen and her team did a beautiful job with my reception center pieces, ceremonial arch décor and wedding party bouquets for my August 2017 wedding. The team was very easy to work with over email or phone. The flowers arrived and looked fresh and full and my bridesmaids loved their bouquets and of course I loved mine. My flowers included purple and white roses with other accent flowers and some greenery. The arch had white billowing fabric with a middle overhead flower arrangement. It's been over a week and my bouquet is still the center piece of my dining room table. Thank you so much Boston Event Diva's!

Julie catered our party for 75 people. Not only did she bring delicious food, just as described, but she spent at least a half an hour setting up the fruit and cheese display--it was stunning. She was easy to work with, had great menu suggestions, was prompt, professional and friendly, and surpassed our expectations.

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!

I am so happy to have come across SYB and her teaam. This is our second time using them... the first time for my parents 50th wedding anniversary and this time for my engagement party. The food is always presented beautifully and never fails to taste delicious. On top of that everyone compliments the professionalism of the staff and attentive service (hence why I hired her the second time). Soraya really takes the time to learn what I want and gives valuable input about floor plans and overall logistics that i didn't even know existed! The day of our event, my sister and I went to get out hair and nails done, while Soraya and her team handled everything. It's really stress free and she makes it more fun. I truly see Soraya as a friend after working with her! Thanks SYB, you make my parties memorable and leave my guests impressed.

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.

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 from That's Tasty was exactly what I was looking for. We hired That's Tasty for a baby shower brunch and her service couldn't have been better. She made the process easy with quick response to our questions while planning and excellent service at event. The food was incredible and she made our baby shower a success. I will definitely be calling That's Tasty again and will strongly recommend her to anyone in need of a caterer. Thanks again Claudia

Oh my goodness, Deirdre was incredible!!!! I hired Slavin in the Kitchen for my sister's 50th birthday party. After interviewing a few caterers I knew Deirdre Slavin was the caterer for us. She was professional and explained everything up front, so there were absolutely no surprises. Now onto the food! Since we just did hors d'oeuvres she served an array of dishes. From the duck confit tarts to the Spanish meatballs, mini crabcakes with lemon aoili, we were thrilled. I could go on and on, the food was that good, it was truly amazing!!! My family considers themselves to be serious "foodies" and man did she deliver. She runs an extremely tight ship and right to the last minute Deirdre and her staff were efficient and extremely pleasant to work with. I highly recommend her for your next big event!!!

I had no idea what I wanted for food for my sister's bridal shower and Billy came up with a menu that I loved. The food was phenomenal as well as the presentation. It was a little crazy the day of and when he arrived but he was able to adapt and work around all of the people running around. I will definitely be keeping him in mind for anything else we need catered!

Food was amazing! She was amazing! I really didn't know what I wanted and she help me through figuring out what would work for my dinner party of 10. I also have some complicated food restrictions and she very willingly work around them. We ended up with an awesome three course meal. Most important she was able to go with the flow, if I didn't have something she needed she worked around it, when guests hadn't pretold me what they don't eat she worked around it. Everyone had a great time and it was because of the food and the service. Highly recommended!!

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!
