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!

I was extremely fortunate to have Jen Royle host a private catering event for me at my home. I was so impressed with Jen and all her services. Not only did she help plan the perfect menu for me and my guests, but she was on time, executed everything impeccably, and was the ultimate professional. I personally wanted Jen to interact with my guests and she couldn't have been more fun, energetic, or passionate about her food and cooking experiences. It should go without saying that the food was outstanding but just incase you were wondering... it was amazing. I had no idea what type of finger foods would work together but Jen planned the perfect combinations from mini chicken & waffles to tomato soup & grilled cheese shooters to beautiful salads and crostini's. Thank you, Jen for your outstanding catering services and I truly look forward to using you for all my upcoming needs!

We had a house party that was for about 35 guests and we hired Daniel for the catering. It was the best decision we made! The food was amazing, from the hot appetizers to the main courses (chicken, beef) to the variety of desserts- it was all delicious. I couldn't believe how many guests commented about the food and the presentation. And the presentation was certainly unique- he served the entrees in giant martini glasses so that we could stand and mill about while holding food. Fantastic idea. Daniel first came over to our house to check out the layout and kitchen and we went over the menu and how we were going to set everything up. This helped to make sure that everything on the day of the party went smoothly. He had a server (his daughter) and she was such a huge help and worked very hard. Together, they took care of everything related to the food - everything! All the food was fresh and cooked right in the kitchen so we weren't eating reheated food. They not only cooked here and served, but they took care of the clean up and packaged and put away all the extra food for us. They took all the stress away from planning a party and we were left to enjoy ourselves. We had so many people we hadn't seen for years that it was wonderful to just relax and enjoy the conversation and food with them. I can't recommend Daniel highly enough. We would definitely hire him again!

I found J&L on the internet. Took a chance as I needed to find a catering company with 4 days notice. J&L was outstanding! They were very responsive, extremely friendly, detailed oriented, and delivered exactly what they promised! The food was delicious! I'm so happy that I found them.

William and his team were excellent. I can't speak highly enough about them! All of my guests raved about the food, with good reason! He was responsive, open to my crazy ideas, and executed new and creative menu items flawlessly. The only thing I would suggest is to make sure bride & groom get to sample appetizers -- I was too nervous during our cocktail hour to take some and wish some were saved for me. But otherwise every single thing about working with William from start to finish was great and I would hire him again in a heartbeat!!

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!

Working with Aipyn has been a treat. I have used the company for two different parties. People from both parties are still talking about the food, the wonderful service, and the lovely chef. The food is beyond words. I can’t wait for my next event this summer. Best wishes, and thank you again.

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!

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!

Gathered Table catered a wedding in my home of 30 adults and some kids. Mary was wonderful to work with - they accommodated a very short timeline and she was wonderful about the menu and allowing me plenty of time for modifications and changes. She was laid back and relaxed, which helped ease my anxiety. The group was half Brazilian and half American, so they also made both Brazilian and American specialties. The food was awesome! They were extremely reliable and showed up with the right number of staff members to service the crowd well. The only negative was that we asked for leftover food to be left with us since we paid for it, but my guests saw them leaving with a lot of the food they brought in. Perhaps we ate most of the food and didn't really have leftovers, however this was not communicated with me or with my sister, who was communicating directly with them when I was not able to. My only suggestion would be to clarify this upfront. Late night when there were only 10 of us left having fun, we would have loved to dig in for more food!

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.
