We enjoyed having Wendy and Bill as our caterers for our night of fun with friends. It was the perfect kickoff to our Memorial Day weekend. There was plenty of delicious and unique foods to taste. We had awesome wine and beer pairings as well. All of our guests enjoyed everything. We absolutely recommend trying their services!

Jen Royle recently catered a bereavement buffet brunch for our family. From our very first conversation, I knew I had found the right person for the event. The food she prepared was delicious and the presentation was perfect. Working with Jen was such a pleasure. She was so thoughtful and supportive given the sadness of the occasion. She took any worries about the brunch right out of our hands. She was there for us during a tough time and we look forward to having her back for a happier event at some point in the future.

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!!

Chris performed a superb post prom party service for us: for 30 kids, in the late evening he provided a hot and cold buffet from 10.30pm until 1am and returned at 6.30am to provide a superb cooked breakfast for the same group, through to 9am. His food was excellent, well prepared, presented and served. He and his assistants were well organized and calm when dealing with change requests (an example being when the kids arrived hungry and 45 minutes early from the Prom, when Chris was still setting up, no problem). We would have no hesitation in recommending Chris for such events and others.

We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary with a casual outdoor dinner buffet for 30 adults and 3 children. William listened to our preferences carefully and created a beautiful and delicious menu of passed hors d'oeuvres, chicken, fish, and vegetarian entrees, and a wonderful dessert table of fresh fruit, hazelnut cake and pistachio panna cotta. The food was wonderful! Many guests remarked about how good everything was. His serving team set up and served with style and charm and cleaned up beautifully. We highly recommend William and will use him again and again! He is a great communicator and chef.

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 used Lori's catering services for a small get together and birthday party for about 30 people. Since I was a novice at party giving, Lori was very good about checking in with me along the way and making suggestions about both the menu and the setup. We had more than enough food which had been a particular worry of mine since I could not picture amounts. The party was for noon on a Sunday and I elected to do sort of a blend between a brunch and a lunch. In particular, the strata, mango salad and berry fruit salad were the most popular and I found that the dressings, sauces and spreads that accompanied the food were what added to the uniqueness of the ham, rolls and other salads. Everything was tasty and fresh. The delivery person was on time and helpful with food placement as it was a buffet style. The dishes were all set to go on platters and we supplied the serving utensils and beverages. I would certainly recommend Lori for whatever occasion you might need these services.

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.

People are raving about the delicious assortment of food at our wedding! Melt in your mouth Beef Bourginon was amazing. Chicken with Pasta Pulito superb. Sandwiches, appetizers and salads all fresh and tasty beyond compare. Service incredible. Loved having a buffet so our guests could go back for more! Makes us want to plan a party so we can hire them again.

Sam and his staff catered our nonprofit organization's annual Sandra K Russell Derby Day Benefit for MitoAction a few weeks ago and it was beyond amazing! Our attendees and staff cannot say enough great things about the Merrimack Event team. From start to finish, Sam was polite, attentive, and efficient. He worked with our budget and understood the complexity of the event. Sam went above and beyond to help decorate the event venue beautifully and of course, have his chef design an out of this world Southern Fare dinner menu to match our event's theme. Everyone was so pleased with the delicious food, and has told us out of the 8 years we have hosted this event - this one was truly the best. We cannot wait to use Simply Elegant Catering again next year! Thank you again Sam and team!

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!

Gathered Table is by far a cut above the rest. We have used Mary and her team for anything from intimate celebrations to holiday parties. Each event is delivered with thoughtful care, elegance and impeccable taste. Her variety of fare ranges from vegan to meat lovers. The food is consistently outstanding, original, organic and always impressive, with guests raving about the food. Each creation is a feast for the eyes and a delight to the belly! Gathered Table takes away the stress of planning and executing a party for the host with all their preparation and anticipation of what might be needed. Mary is always 5 steps ahead going above and beyond on all the little atmospheric touches, delivering a sensational culinary experience. We are always blown away by the level of professionalism, grace and creative food and cocktails crafted for every event. Gathered table is simply the best and unparalleled in its industry.

I hired Only Catering to do a barbecue for my husband's birthday party of 35 people. I had never used a caterer before and was nervous. Laurie worked with me to get the menu I wanted: Barbecue ribs, chicken wings, pulled pork, baked beans, potato salad, coleslaw, vegetable salad, veggies and dip, all at a very reasonable price. The food was excellent and plentiful. My worry about not having enough food was unfounded....there was enough left over for several meals afterward! Laurie's catering service includes food, table cloths, paper products, utensils, and beverages if you want them. We were very pleased with her service and would highly recommend Only Catering.

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.

This was hands down the best experience I have had working with any company. Meghann and Nick are incredible at what they do an offer so much more than just good food. With out them our dream wedding wouldn't have been half the success that it was. I will be looking for excuses to use their services again in the future!!!

I hired Nick's Place, for a retirement party. I can not say enough about their expertise in catering. They took care of everything for me. The food was fresh, delicious, and the presentation was excellent. I would highly recommend Nick's Place. Father and son reassured me everything would be perfect and it was.
