Chef Christo catered a lovely backyard retirement party at my home. The food was delicious from appetizers to dinner to dessert. The chicken marsala was yummy. He provided all the paper products, dishes, tables and linens. Excellent service and everything was cleaned up in short order. Would hire again.

Julie provided wonderful catering for a surprise party at my apartment. Despite a limited amount of space, she made a few delicious appetizers that everyone loved! She was very easy to work with throughout the entire process.

Lori Rizzo was a pleasure to work with from the first second of our conversation through many twists & turns in the catering job (including 3 changes of venue) up until the excellent food and service she provided at the event. This was for a large anniversary party of 300+. Lori helped us design a delicious and cost-effective menu, working with our budget but putting the satisfaction of the guests as a top priority as well. She provided excellent and plentiful appetizers and desserts for our guests. Through the various venue changes, we had to keep altering the menu, but she was always patient and solved every problem. She was very responsive via email and phone, and I was never for one moment worried that she wouldn't come through with excellent catering services. She had solutions to all of our various challenges in an unconventional space with last-minute changes. I would strongly recommend her to anyone and everyone.

Extremely Competent and Talented - Delicious food - Impeccable professionalism - Very Reasonable Pricing Expertise in the field is immediately evident. Upon our first call, I knew Deirdre was highly capable of handling our event. Her years of experience have made her confident in her execution - which made me as a client secure and calm that Slavin in the Kitchen would handle our event as anticipated and without incident. This particular event that we hired Deirdre for was a very personal one - a “Celebration of Life” gathering at our home after my Mother-in-law’s passing. I desired a very specific passed hors d’oeuvres menu to honor my Mother-in-law to include her favorite foods. Deirdre didn’t blink. She was completely amicable with creating offerings that are not typically on her appetizer menu. She made excellent suggestions and designed special hors d’oeuvres just for our memorial. We certainly didn’t provide her with the best working conditions - and she didn’t even shrug! I requested that she work out of our garage so that guests could have full use of our kitchen. She did so flawlessly and to boot - when she left, you would have never even known she was there! I would have been happy to rent cooking equipment for her to use, but as an added bonus - she had it all in her inventory and brought it with her. Our guests were swooning over her cuisine! I received MANY compliments on how delicious folks found her cooking to be. Guests even took her name and number so that they may hire Slavin in the Kitchen for future events. I am still dreaming about the Curried Chicken Tartlets and the Masala Chai!! SO TASTY!! I need to note how lovely and professional her Serving staff were as well! As an Event Planner, I’ve experienced that even if the Chef is professional and capable - the crew they bring to serve isn’t always as fabulous. That was certainly not true of Slavin in the Kitchen’s Servers. The two ladies were courteous, crisp, polite and gracious. They knew the tone of the event and were overwhelmingly sensitive to our family and guests. I was delighted with how our event was handled by Slavin in the Kitchen. I will hire Deirdre again and I implore you to too! Taylor Singh Owner, Avasara Events

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!

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.

OMG! Hands down, your search ends here. Bill and Wendy are phenomenal; so responsive to email and phone calls. Conducted a site visit and offered sample tastings without being asked. Food was excellent. They did a mid-afternoon reception with about 10 different appetizers/desserts outside in 90 degree heat for 200 people. Presentation was gorgeous. Cold stuff remained cold, hot stuff remained hot, everything was beautiful and stayed replenished. Their demeanor is incredible. The only thing that people complimented more than the food was the catering staff. Truly you will not go wrong with them. 10 years as a innkeeper and 4 years as an event coordinator, I'm a critical judge of quality and service. I give them 5 stars without reservation. Thank you Bill & Wendy for making the 2017 USM Staff Recognition Event a very special day. People loved you and your food!

Sara's Cooking provided a lovely Easter dinner for my family of 8, including an appetizer tray, full service of two courses, and a buffet of finger pastries for dessert. The service was friendly and extremely helpful and the food was delicious. I would definitely book Sara's Cooking again!

It was a cocktail and appetizer party for 12 people. Everyone loved the food! We had plenty left over for folks to bring home! Price was great. It will definetly use SYB Catering again because Soraya was so professional and accomodating...she came and set everything up an hour before the start date and cooked several apps on premise...it was great. And again, the the food was awesome!
