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!

I had Dare to Taste do my Holiday Party on 12-13-15 at my 55 plus community clubhouse in Westboro Ma. Jen Royles service and food presentation is beyond words. I would recommend her to anyone for any type of an event she is a amazing person in her cooking and personality. Thank you so much Jen for a outstanding job and hope to see you again in the near future. Mary Walters

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!!

Little Miss Sophie's catered our Thanksgiving dinner for about 25 people. The food was plentiful and delicious, and everyone at the table was satisfied with their meal. The food arrived on time and was completely set up and ready to go by our planned meal time. In addition, attention was paid to the little details for example - Jess brought tablecloths to put underneath the serving stations, candles to add to the ambiance, and Andes mints for after dinner. These were all things we hadn't discussed and they added positively to our experience. Prior to the meal, I communicated with Jess primarily through e-mail. Her responses were prompt and professional, and she worked with me to customize a meal that would suit my family's needs. The whole experience could not have been easier. Little Miss Sophie's Restaurant will definitely be our go-to business when we need catering in the area!

The short version: we hired Daniel for our wedding of 89 people. He is an excellent cheff, he makes high quality delicious food and at a very reasonable price. He delivered exactly what we were looking for and more. The longer version if you have time: we found Daniel on this website, or he found us when we posted an inquiry. We were unsure if the event would be 150 people or 90 as we invited many from oversees. He had a proposed menu with pricing within hours. Within a day we had spoken on the phone and were Confirmed for our wedding 8 months or so away. As we weren't living in California we could not meet in person but reading Daniels reviews and speaking with him instilled confidence in our choice. Additionally I did reach out to another caterer to get a price check as it was recommended I do so from a friend. And when I opened the local companies quote I discovered they charges 3 times the price Daniel does, and were only offering a few appetizers, mains and a couple side dishes with 1 dessert. For 1/3 the price Daniel provided us with: 6 hot appetizers, cold station with dips and crudite upon guest arrival, delicious beef, a creamy chicken pesto with noodles, salmon with red pepper, salad w/ Gorgonzola and pear, rolls, roasted vegetables, AND many delicious desserts: creme brûlée, brownies, macaron (a surprise cookie as my family is French), coffee and tea -- and more I'm likely forgetting. He also provided licensed bartenders and a full staff. We provided our own alcohol and they did a very nice job with serving. Before the event Daniel prepared a "tasting" which I assumed meant a small sample of foods for the wedding. He came to our house with enough food to feed 6 of us for 3 days!!! And it was phenomenal. While with us he offered a place in his home for my family in France to stay if they needed. I'm not sure if I was more overjoyed by his kind, generous, caring and wonderful personality or his amazing culinary skills. We knew he was the BEST choice because not only would we get a great product from him but he as a person would add joy to the most joyful day of our lives. And on our wedding day 2 days ago, we heard comments about how delicious the food was from many of our guests. I attempted to try everything and was very pleased with the results (though I must admit my happiness interfered with my appetite on the day--but that's ok because I have leftovers to feed us for a week). One guest came up to me and said it was the best wedding food she had ever had. Giving our friends and family a delicious meal and great experience was so important to me and Daniel made that possible. I didn't see him until after the meal as the night was getting later but when I did it lit up my night even more! He and his beautiful wife were smiling as they worked in the kitchen and gave us such sweet wedding wishes. It was quite meaningful to me to be treated like a friend as well as with professionalism. If you are looking for a caterer with exceptional food, a wonderful personality, and great prices Daniel is your best choice. I would recommend him for an event of any size and Daniel, we will be contacting you in the future if we are ever looking for a caterer. Thank you so much!!!

I had a lobster bake for a group of 35. The food was delicious everyone raved that the steamers were the best they had ever tasted. Very professional and easy to work with. I really liked that she spaced out the courses and allowed us to socialize. It was not a rushed meal. I can't wait to use her services again.

William catered our family style wedding reception for 170 people at a private venue and we could not be happier. Not only is the food he cooks amazing, the service he provides is second to none. Prior to reaching out to William, we had been working with another larger, better known, and well-reviewed catering company. They turned out to be entirely unhelpful, unwilling to offer alternatives to help keep our budget manageable and did not take kindly to any requests outside their standard menu and offerings. After eating the deposit on our first caterer, we gave William a call and he provided the exact opposite experience. From our first phone call until after the event was over, he was wonderful to work with. He helped us with crafting a menu, determining alcohol volume (we had a backyard wedding), cocktail and reception layout, and even timeline. He was always very quick to respond, made extremely helpful suggestions, worked around our schedules (and held the tasting in our apartment), accommodated changes to dishes to make sure we got exactly what we wanted, provided more food (and rentals!) for far less money than other caterers we assessed, and had an extremely professional service staff. After it was all over, he put some leftover food in our fridge and my wife and I were able to enjoy it again for dinner the following night with a bottle of champagne. If you're looking for a caterer that really cares not only about the food that he cooks but also about you and making your event amazing, you've already found him.

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.

Words cannot describe how happy my wife and I are with SYB Event planning and Soraya for planning an amazing 1st Birthday Party for my daughter, this past August. From the day I found her up until the party, she has been nothing but helpful, supportive and very creative. SYB Event Planning also supplied the catering to us as well, from their catering division. The food and service was very good!! All my guests were very happy on how beautiful and fun the party was. I will definitely considering hiring Soraya again for future events. Both the catering and the planning are highly recommended!

Great food, professional service for our party of 22. The carrot/ginger soup, the chicken tacos, and the fried artichokes were amazing. Everything else was also fantastic, too. All of the guests were very complimentary. Naturally, we were also very pleased with Renee and her staff and am happy to recommend her.

Working with Natural Foods was an absolute pleasure. From the initial contact through to the end, it was so easy. I was looking for a caterer for my housewarming party of 60. I really appreciated the focus on sustainable & seasonal. I was able to give Mr. Sawicki the framework of what I was looking for and he created such a unique & varied menu, I really felt like he listened and delivered on the party I was trying to create. My friends raved about the stuffed figs and amazing entrees! (the fish was amazing!) It was so easy to enjoy my party and so stress free. Professional, unique and you could see all the special touches. Natural Foods will be catering more of my parties, now I just need to have more reasons for parties!

We had our wedding, in May 2015, at Merrimack Valley Golf Club and were very happy with everything that Sam, Michele and the rest of their team did to make our day perfect! They took every detail and thought that we had and put it into action. They were very attentive to us and we're willing to work with us and answer all of our questions during the planning process. All of our guests were very impressed not only in the venue and staff but the food as well. Everything was wonderful and perfectly cooked! You can tell that this is more than a job to them, their pride showed when they got emotionally invested into the ceremony, and the day in general. We truly appreciate everything that they did for us!

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.

I had the pleasure of experiencing Chef Stacy's food at a local restaurant, and it was absolutely delicious! A few months down the line, I opened a business and needed a caterer for my grand opening. I contacted Chef Stacey in hopes that he provided this kind of service.. Thankfully he did! From the first consult until the end of the event he was extremely professional, pleasant, the array of food that I could choose from and that he provide was amazing, his table and presentation of the food was flawless! My customers and I was extremely happy with his service that evening! So much that when I moved locations of my business, that we hired him again!!! I would definitely recommend Chef Stacy for your catering needs!
