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!

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.

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 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.

Many compliments from our guests on the food , display, and service. Overall outstanding catering. Thank you, Visjna and Donna.

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.

Chef Marty and his team provided appetizers, main meal, desserts, bar service, linens and dinnerware for our recent Holiday Party_12/6/13. Chef Marty was a delight to work with, he was responsive to our menu requests & updates; the request for a vegan meal was provided without a hitch. Pricing for our Holiday Party was fabulous, as a volunteer organization, we are always looking for the best for our dollars. The best review to offer was the request for business cards from the attendees! The serving staff were friendly and accommodating to last minute requests. I will keep Malone Catering's contact information near by!

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.

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.

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!

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!!!

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
