Chef Bill and Wendy provided farm to table catering for the grand opening of our office. We hosted approximately 80 guests and they were all thrilled with the food and the wine pairings. Excellent job. Recently attended one of their signature events at the Victoria Inn. The Indian food was OFF THE CHART!!! Give them a try!

Jen Royle, the owner of Dare To Taste, was amazing to work with and I highly recommend her and her staff for any of your catering needs. She was a pleasure to work with, easy to contact and always responded quickly. She is professional, down to earth and most importantly her food was amazing so much so that all of our guest wanted her business card! We had an issue at the banquet hall with electrical outlets. The hall was very rustic and I was a nervous wreck but Jen and her assistant rallied on and our guest never even realized their was an issue. Jen worked great under pressure and we could not have been happier with the way she handled our event, I would hire Jen again in a heartbeat!

Daniel catered my daughter's graduation from high school/18th birthday. We have family members that are used to high end catering experiences. All were quite impressed. Daniel did a phenomenal job. The quality far exceeded expectations, the presentation was breathtaking. Daniel sat with my daughter and me to understand what we hoped to achieve and exceeded our expectations. I would use Daniel's catering services for both personal and work related functions and would recommend Daniel as caterer of choice.

It was truly a wonderful experience providing a different meal each week for 11 weeks. We not only enjoyed variety, but also very tasty, filling meals prepared with great care. Sara sought not just to serve food but to serve a group of adults each week with her culinary delights and her strong desire to meet our catering needs. Deacon Larry Cummins

I can't speak highly enough of my experience with Manda & Me Catering. After Julie's prompt response to my Thumbtack inquiry we spoke over the phone about my ideas and concerns re: menu for the surprise birthday party I was planning. She was warm and professional, offering suggestions re: serving options as this was my 1st time hosting an event of this magnitude. Julie translated my jumbled ideas into several varied & balanced menu options from which to choose. Leading up to the day of the event she stayed in communication, making sure to check in about little details like color scheme for the party so the paper goods she brought didn't clash. On the day of the event Julie was on-time and so efficient with set up, creating a gorgeous and tempting display. Of course, not only did the food look amazing but it tasted delicious! Our guests raved about the menu and the empty chafing dishes really spoke volumes! I'm so grateful to Julie for her collaboration for this party and I highly recommend her for your upcoming event!

Hostess Catering catered our holiday open house for 100 people this weekend and everything was perfect. Visnja and Donna accommodated our desire for a completely gluten-free menu and our guests all raved about the delicious food. The servers were professional, personable and made our guests feel pampered. Most of all, I knew we were in good hands and was able to enjoy visiting with our friends and family!

From the planning stages to the execution of the event, I could not have been more pleased with the level of service and professionalism William extended to me. There was constant communication leading up to my event which relieved me of the stress involved with planning a party for 50+ ppl. The custom menu he created for my wife's 40th Back Yard BBQ was phenomenal. All my guests raved about the food and I loved everything he made. William and his team went above and beyond what I was expecting and even threw in a few unexpected delighters for my wife to make the day even more memorable for her. I would highly recommend William as he delivers what he promises and then some. If I have to plan another large party that requires catering, William will be the first person I call to handle it.

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.

I can't say enough good things about Marty Malone. My husband and I had our wedding at the Historic Village Hall in Framingham, MA. The hall was beautiful, but did not include any 'frills' other than the tables. We needed to find a caterer that could not only feed our 150 guests, but also bring in alcohol, provide bartenders and insurance, and help to show the guests where and when to eat. We also had to do it on a very tight budget. Marty got back to me right away on Thumbtack, and answered what seemed like hundreds of questions from me in a timely and patient manner. He was so helpful with all of our needs, and met every single one of them with no stress or hassle. We were able to customize our meal choices, and make changes when needed. He provided an incredible ice cream sundae bar as well as gluten free options when asked about it at the last minute. On the day of the wedding, I saw that Marty had brought lots of friendly staff with him, and all were dressed nicely and smiling. They catered to our guests and made sure everyone was fed and happy. The cleanup was quick and easy. I would highly recommend Marty for any of your catering needs!

I've worked with Benjamin for the last six years using him as a caterer at various events ranging from 200+ person concerts (5-6 per summer) to intimate household dinners. Every time he has been extremely professional in his correspondence and delivery. His food has continually wowed guests and customers alike, and it is obvious he has a talent for tailoring the menu to the occasion. Additionally, he has a knack for pairing wines and cocktails and doing so in an extremely affordable price range. He and his team are truly gems in the culinary/catering world. I can not recommend his services high enough.

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.

I had no idea what I wanted for food for my sister's bridal shower and Billy came up with a menu that I loved. The food was phenomenal as well as the presentation. It was a little crazy the day of and when he arrived but he was able to adapt and work around all of the people running around. I will definitely be keeping him in mind for anything else we need catered!

Chef Reed and and his staff of culinarians and service staff provided a wonderful holiday feast for Phillips Exeter Academy. The attention to flavor profiles, detail in execution in all the selections were exceptional. Chef Reed attended all planning meetings, developed all the menus based on a shared vision while providing timely quotes. The wait-staff were professional, well presented and attentive to guests while ensuring the food presentation were maintained. I would highly recommend Thyme and TIDE Catering.
