Jen catered our daughters wedding reception on 10/10/15, which was at a home in a large commercial tent. She was fantastic from beginning to end! She kept me calm (mother-of-the-bride crazies) and was personable and professional. The food was fantastic and plenty of it! Everything was cleaned up and spotless after the reception. If there were 10 stars, I would have given her a 10.

Sara and her staff were amazing to work with. Sara stayed on the ball and took care of everything we needed for our wedding. She is super sweet, organized, and she showed that she really cared about how our wedding went. She was great at contacting me for information and she made sure that all the details were clear in advance. Sara's cooking was also great at accommodating dietary restrictions. I am a vegetarian, and she had some amazing options for an almost entirely vegetarian wedding. She was also happy to provide additional foods for young children and our wedding guests with food allergies. I really loved working with her and all her staff!

Cristos kitchen was so great at my wedding reception of 275 guests. Chef Chris worked with me throughout my entire process of planning and budgeting. He and his team provided me with lots of delicious food and friendly, genuine service. There was a very big menu with lots of choices for dinner and hordourvs. Everything tasted the same and just as yummy as it did at the tasting. I was so happy with cristos kitchen I would most definitely recommend it, and hire them again.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!! Daniel and his fabulous staff catered my daughters wedding with 130+ guests to rave reviews! Not only was the food OUTSTANDING (cold station appetizers, amazing hot passed appetizers, dinner( tenderloin you could cut with a fork) and Pasta Daniel (that still makes my mouth water!) and a great selection of desserts) but the service, professionalism, and genuine kindness of Daniel and his staff was exemplary! He took care of every detail from preparing signature cocktails, timing the service of courses perfectly, food presentation and clean up. My husband and I were able to enjoy the entire reception worry-free. Daniel is a Master Caterer! Can't wait to have another event so we can hire Daniel again!

Jennifer Josserand is the absolute best! She did an incredible job with taking the information we shared with her about our hopes for what the wedding reception space would look like, and she took it from there...making our vision a reality and then some! The arrangements she made were absolutely gorgeous and all the guests complimented them, then asked if any could come home with them :) When we first met, I came in with some ideas and a price point in mind, and Jen was able to come up with the perfect combination of flowers and accents to really bring everything together in the most beautiful way imaginable! I can't speak highly enough of her work and would recommend her to anyone seeking a florist for their wedding.

We felt imediately comfortable having Julie in our home. She was professional, friendly, efficient and an excellent cook. Enjoyed every morsel she prepared for the tasting prior to our upcoming wedding. We ended up selecting the same menu items we tried at the tasting and are looking forward to seeing Julie again on our wedding day.

Hands down, one of the most positive experiences of hiring a caterer in my life. Visnja and Donna are two of most charming, friendly people I have had the pleasure of meeting. They were always very prompt in returning communication. They have a real eye for how things should be set up as well. We thought we had set up everything for our wedding reception dinner before Visnja and Donna arrived. When we returned they had transformed the space into something truly magical. To top it all off, the food was outstanding, especially considering how much we paid. They were very reasonable with their pricing, and in fact were the most affordable thumbtack offer we received for the job. All in all, I find comfort in the fact that I no longer have to search for a caterer again. I just have to give Visnja and Donna a call, and I think you should too.

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.

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.

I worked with Soraya for my wedding in July. We had our reception in a beautiful hotel that included a planner, however, hired Soraya to help in addition because of the attention to detail and many decisions required during the wedding planning. I am beyond thrilled with my decision to use SYB event planning! Soraya is extremely thoughtful and has creativity mixed with imagination to make your ideas come to life! I didn't know exactly what I was looking for. She was very patient and helped me put together the most elegant and unique wedding I could've ever asked for. The day of my wedding went so smoothly, and so many guests complimented that the wedding was the most beautiful they have ever been to! If you are looking for a professional, caring, creative, personable and enthusiastic event planner, meet with Soraya. I highly recommend SYB for any party, I will definitely be using her in the future for family events/parties!

I found Malone Catering on Thumbtack while assisting my son to find a caterer for his wedding. When I first saw the menus and prices I really thought I had to be misunderstanding, His prices are so reasonable that I could not believe he was in any way related to other wedding caterers. It seems that all wedding services have a 4X markup and we really needed to stay within a very frugal budget. I called Chef Marty and found him to be very easy to work with and very accommodating and I sent his info to my son immediately. The wedding last Sunday at Camp Kiwanee was beautiful and the guests raved about the delicious food. We had requested a buffet style and Marty and his staff did the serving. Absolutely wonderful. And I cannot say enough about his staff. They were so unobtrusive I never noticed them clearing after dinner but they did an incredible job. And every one of them was friendly and helpful and seemed happy to be there. I know my son and is new wife were extremely pleased with Malone Catering. We will not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a quality caterer at a reasonable price.

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.

Let me start by saying, "Thank you to Chef Coe a me his team for going above and beyond to make sure my parents wedding anniversary was a fun fantastic success!" If your here, you've at least begun to feel the stress and pressure that planning a party can present. From the first conversation with Steve, my mind was put at ease. He and his team were prompt to reply to any questions and communicated with us thoroughly throughout the entire process. I had done some research on him and it seemed he had quite an extensive knowledge of an array of cuisines. Which was apparent as soon as we tasted the food he prepared. Amazing doesn't even begin to describe his food and all my guests agreed! When we asked how, his reply, " always fresh ingredients prepared with love and respect for the food." (A cute genuine response I thought) To top it all off they left my kitchen cleaner then when they arrived! Which was appreciated! We just had a few close friends and family for appetizers and an intimate meal to celebrate an important milestone for my parents, 50 yrs of marriage but Steve and his team we're so good attentive and respectful who would have thought they were cooking for royalty. My family and I cannot thank you enough and will be happy to refer you to anyone looking for services of that nature in the future. Sincerely, The Corelli Family

From the moment we had contact with one another until the day of my wedding reception, Seas the Moment went above and beyond. The decor was beautiful. Her responses to my emails were immediate and her attention to detail was flawless. I feel like I have gained a friend. She listened to all of my requests and she also accommodated any last minute changes I made. I would give her a 10 out of 10 all day, everyday. I am very critical of events or parties I throw and I am pleased to say that I would work with her again in a heart beat!!

Shamia provided a delicious buffet for my son's wedding brunch for 15 people. She even took the time to transfer additional food onto her serving platters to make everything look just right. People loved the food, which included beef tenderloin with horseradish sauce, an arugula, goat cheese and pear salad, a roasted sweet potato and mango salad, two kinds of delicious frittatas (which the bride said were the best she had ever tasted), and potatoes au gratin. She also prepared a two-layer green-tea cake with buttercream and coconut frosting that was perfection. She brought a lovely server, Paula, with her to handle all the details of prepping, keeping things fresh, and cleaning up. We had mountains of leftovers, and everyone was delighted.

Lisa is a fantastic florist! She did a great job with the floral arrangements. We had our wedding reception in the Casino Roger Williams Park, Providence. She had decorated the entire place beautifully. The centerpieces were marvelous, very colorful and vibrant, just as I had requested. Since this was an Indian wedding, she added hues of gold to the vase, and added candles to the decorations just as I envisioned. She also added rose petals to each of the tables adding to the festivities. My bouquet was extremely beautiful and she made a beautiful hair comb with matching colors. She was very flexible with all my requests and made some creative suggestions during the planning phase of the wedding. She is very responsive to emails and that makes life easy if you are the kind of person who likes to communicate via email. I would strongly recommend Lisa for any floral decoration event.
