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!!

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.

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!

Donna and Visnja were amazing! It was my first timing looking for caterers and I had a great experience. I primarily spoke with Donna and she was so bubbly, polite, and professional. She was quick to answer any of my questions and was very accommodating. I had a large family party but did not want to have a formal sit down dinner, so I opted for 3 of their food stations-the boardwalk, the skewer and the salad stations. They set everything up buffet style so my guests could eat at their choosing. I got so many compliments on the food! I was especially pleased to hear that the vegetarians of the group loved having so many tasty options (from the salad station). Next time I need to cater an event I know who to call. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for a caterer!

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.

Lori was a pleasure to deal with and very responsive. Her staff were superb. Beautifully, set up, tasty. Anna and Alix made everything and seamless. Even the guests noticed how lovely they were. Could not ask for a better caterer. (This was a fundraiser for a nonprofit organization.)

Soraya was heaven sent! We had an out-of-state wedding, living in NY to wed in Quincy, MA. I had no idea where to begin with hair, makeup, venues, flowers, favors, transportation, rehearsal and dinner... that's where Soraya came in a saved me! She made all the right connections, and made my day a day to remember! Professional, timely, creative, knowledgeable, and soooooo helpful from the time I first spoke to her to the thank you's! I went from stressed out to stress free! I strongly recommend her. A go-getter!

This past Sunday, Renee catered an engagement brunch for 33 people in our Needham home. I was a bit hesitant at first choosing Renee as I did not know anyone who had used her. After checking out her website and talking to her on the phone, I was confident I had chosen the right caterer for our celebration. Renee listened to my ideas and created a menu that was both elegant and rustic at the same time. Her food was out of this world and the presentation equally as brilliant. If you are looking for a special caterer with a special talent (think design and top chef) Renee is the one! I look forward to working with her again .

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.

Ben responded to all of my questions promptly with excellent suggestions for vegetarian (and other) options for my party. We settled on 6 items that were incredibly tasty and visually appealing. My guests were raving! I would definitely recommend Ben Sawicki as a caterer for your event.

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.

We worked with their catering division, and really appreciated their ability to tailor a menu specifically to our needs (a thematic party about travel to the UK & Ireland). Their ideas for apps were spot on and they also served up a specialty cocktail and whiskey tasting, and worked with our non-standard event space, which added up to a great value compared with renting a restaurant space!

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.

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!
