As everyone knows, guests always remember the meal at a wedding. Our wedding meal was over the top outstanding. Jen and her fantastic team couldn't have been any more efficient, professional, engaging and in a word "perfect". We would highly recommend them. We were so fortunate that she was available to cater this event for us, a true blessing.

Sara and her staff did an absolutely fantastic job catering our wedding in late July, 2016. The event was at a small horse farm in Rehoboth, MA, and Sara planned a menu that perfectly reflected the verdant, warm and playful atmosphere of the venue. Throughout the planning process, she and her staff were swift to respond to any questions we had and were very transparent about all of the costs involved. They were incredibly friendly and professional, reflecting a true pride in their work. The event itself went flawlessly and all the guests we talked to (we had about 150) really enjoyed their meals and the buffet service was well run. In short, the food was excellent and the customer service, friendliness and overall professionalism were superb. I highly recommend hiring Sara and her crew to cater any special event!

I truly cannot say thank you enough to the team at Cristo’s Kitchen for catering my wedding. They were friendly and supportive in putting together a menu. So easy to work with. On the day of the event they were on-time, anticipated the needs of the guests, created a beautiful spread, and served some tremendous food. All of our guests were so blown away by how wonderful the food was and by the service they received from the wait staff. Not to mention, the pricing was very affordable. I would recommend Cristo’s Kitchen 100% and give 5 stars on all levels!

I met Daniel for catering for my wedding. He was the only caterer who came to my venue right off the bat to view how everything would work. He also came to my home and put together a fabulous tasting with enough leftovers for us to enjoy in days after. Daniel was very willing to work with in our budget and was very professional, warm and friendly I would highly recommend Daniel and will be contacting him for any future altering needs.

We used J&L Catering for our backyard wedding. He worked with me to get the menu selections just right for our diverse crowd, and to get the right amount of food. Everything was perfect, our guests loved the food and had nothing but fantastic things to say about John. He was extremely personable and professional and most certainly delivered on his commitments. I will recommend him to anyone and use him again should the need for more catering arise. Thank you, John! You helped to make our wedding day perfect.

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..

William and his team catered our wedding of about 100 people and I would highly reccomend him! William truly went above and beyond both with his amazing food and constantly offering to help make things easier on us as we got closer to our wedding. The food and presentation was absolutely amazing! Even our vendors who have eaten at countless weddings raved about the food. William also surprised us with some special treats for my husband and his groomsmen and a great display for our late night pretzel bar. William was so much fun and easy to work with and I really can't say enough about how delicious the food was!

Planning a destination wedding in Newport, RI in 6 months while living hundreds of miles away, working full time, moving once cross-country, finding a new job, starting a new job, etc, etc, is no easy task, even with a wedding planner! With everything going on in my life, plus the short timeframe (the wedding date we selected was 6 months out from the day we secured the venue), and the fact that I am a perfectionist, I knew I was going to need help. I was lucky enough to come across SYB Event Planning while on Thumbtack. I interviewed a few companies and ended up selecting SYB because Soraya, the owner, and I really clicked while talking on the phone. While I wasn't necessarily looking for a cultural wedding, I knew she would understand some of the nuances with our families because my husband and I come from different cultural backgrounds. Soraya specializes in taking the time to understand different cultures and she goes out of her way to embed as much or as little as you want of you or your partner's culture into your wedding. I'm so glad I had Soraya for the entire wedding planning process and for the day of the wedding. Our wedding was absolutely beautiful and totally exceeded my expectations (this is a perfectionist speaking...just for some perspective). I don't think that could have been possible without having Soraya helping along the way. She challenged me to think about things I would have never thought of and took care of all the details. She went above and beyond to make sure the wedding was as successful as it could be. She even drove over 90 miles each way to get us a cute favor that we really wanted for our guests...without hesitating! I didn't even ask her, but when she heard me talking about what I would like to do if the place was closer, she just jumped in and said she would take care of it. I'm so thankful for everything Soraya did to make our special day a success and would highly recommend her to anyone trying to plan a wedding.

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.

My fiance and I hired Claudia at That's Tasty to cater our wedding of about 50 people. Claudia was warm, friendly and extremely helpful during the entire process. She was the only caterer who offered a sample tasting for our (very gourmet menu) of beef wellington and mushroom ravioli. It was so tasty! Everything at the event went without a hitch, and the food was simply delicious. All the guests were impressed, even the ones who ordered the gluten free/vegan entree (winter squash, stuffed with risotto and pine nuts). Claudia was also able to provide an option for the two kids at the wedding. If you want a tasty, gourmet meal, provided with professionalism and warmth, you should call That's Tasty right away. You will be impressed. Fernanda & Andy

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

I am so happy that I chose Simply Elegant for my wedding, and Merrimack for my venue. Assistance with planning my wedding was something that was very important to me because I own my own business. Michele and Sam did everything they could to help me, and they helped relieve most of the stress involved with wedding planning. The food was amazing. We were married last August, and my guests are still raving about it! Thank you so much for taking such good care of us and making my wedding so awesome!

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.

Cory and his company Fenway Sausage Works catered our wedding. My wife grew up in Rhode Island, and like any other New Englander she is a Red Sox fan to the core. Our wedding was baseball themed and Fenway Sausage works fit the occasion to a T. The menu choices were simple, easy to follow and easy to choose and move forward with while planning our wedding. Cory made a pre site visit to make sure he was best able to accomadate our wedding ideas. Like any business you have the contracts to deal with, but FSW was simple and easy, and then Cory seemed to go way above and beyond what he agreed to do and made the food at our wedding memorable and priceless. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced, I personally recommend the walking taco at any event. My mouth still waters from it. Cory we thank you and your wife for being part of our day, we consistantly here about the food from our wedding when we visit family in the area. If we ever have another catered event in the area, we will be sure to schedule it with your availability.

Gathered Table catered a wedding in my home of 30 adults and some kids. Mary was wonderful to work with - they accommodated a very short timeline and she was wonderful about the menu and allowing me plenty of time for modifications and changes. She was laid back and relaxed, which helped ease my anxiety. The group was half Brazilian and half American, so they also made both Brazilian and American specialties. The food was awesome! They were extremely reliable and showed up with the right number of staff members to service the crowd well. The only negative was that we asked for leftover food to be left with us since we paid for it, but my guests saw them leaving with a lot of the food they brought in. Perhaps we ate most of the food and didn't really have leftovers, however this was not communicated with me or with my sister, who was communicating directly with them when I was not able to. My only suggestion would be to clarify this upfront. Late night when there were only 10 of us left having fun, we would have loved to dig in for more food!

Robert and the crew at Organic Garden did a great job of catering my wedding in August 2012. My husband wanted a strictly vegetarian wedding, but we wanted the food to appeal to everybody who may not be used to a vegetarian diet. The food was festive, beautiful, and tasty. The service was great. Everyone remarked that they felt like they were somewhere in Europe, enjoying each course very slowly and we lots of mingling and dancing in between each dish. Thank you so much.
