Sara , Daniel and Richard came into our home and we turned our kitchen over to them. By the end of the evening party, they felt like family to us! The food was amazing and the presentation was visually beautiful! Our guests sent us notes afterwards praising the food and caterers!! They were GREAT!!

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 company's sales meeting. It was a two-day meeting with approximately 200 employees attending each day. Daniel provided a beautiful presentation of breakfast and lunch each day. He was there early to make sure everything was ready and served professionally. As the event coordinator, he made my job very easy. I didn't have to worry about whether food needed to be refreshed while employees went through the buffet line. Daniel made sure everything was seamless. The boxed lunches on day 2 were easy for everyone to grab before going to meetings and were fully packed! Daniel even went the extra mile and surprised us with personalized cookies that featured our company's logo. I could not have asked for better service and will be booking Daniel for future events.. whether work or personal!

A fantastic five-course meal for me and my guests. Hosted in the chef's home, we were able to learn about each course, the ingredients and preparation. Crème brulee was outstanding and prepared at the table. In between courses, we examined some older kitchen implements in the chef's kitchen and enjoyed reminiscing about our mothers' and grandmothers' kitchens. Meat was cooked exactly to personal specifications and everything was delicious. This is an experience not to be missed!

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.

I was staying in town for a bachelorette party and rented a beautiful condo in the Fenway area. I had a last minute idea of hosting breakfast for everyone and reached out to Thumbtack. Shamia was very responsive and willing to work with our budget. The breakfast was a huge success! Veggie frittata, banana brule cinnamon french toast (it was so thick and delicious), and waffles with strawberry compote, thick cut bacon, sausages, and breakfast potatoes, coffee, tea, and all of the fixings. It was yummy! The girls loved hanging in their pj's, sipping mimosas and likely saving money by having our breakfast catered rather than going out. Delicious and for a great value!

My company has used Hostess Catering for dinner 4 nights a week for over year. They are flexible, professional, creative and dependable. It's very hard to satisfy a large group every night with many different tastes, diets and eating habits. These ladies always come up with a fun menu every week that appeals to meat lovers and vegetarians. Hostess even catered our Holiday Party in December of 2014 and did all the planning from menus to table settings to waitstaff. They worked hard and I looked like a Super Star! These women do a knock out job and no job is too big for them to handle.

I think it is a resounding testimony when guests at a party are taking a photo of a persons business card during an event. Everything William did was impeccable, and made himself totally available during the event. I would (and will) recommend William to anyone that ever asks me about potential caterers for any event. I have no faults whatever to highlight, I'm sure that if I asked William to mow the lawn as part of festivities preparation that he would have done it without question.

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.

SYB provided a wonderful Thanksgiving lunch buffet for our office of 50 employees. Soraya was on time, professional, and accommodating and the food was delicious! I received incredible feedback from our employees (although words were not needed when I saw them going back for seconds, thirds, fourths...)! We will definitely being using her again for our corporate catering needs.

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.

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.

Mike cooked a beautiful and delicious meal for our bachelorette party. He was prompt, brought all his own equipment and ingredients, and cleaned everything immaculately. Mike was a fun addition to our celebration and was courteous yet charismatic. The meal was to die for, and Mike prepared a large menu while accommodating dietary restrictions. I feel confident that every guest at the party would hire Mike again. Of all the events that day, the chef was the best! Thanks, Mike!!

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

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.
