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!

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!!

For more than 15 years I have been involved in fundraising. I have worked with dozens of caterers over these many years and I can confidently say that Cristo's Kitchen and Catering is the best that I have worked with. Outstanding service, detail oriented, professional, delicious food, honest and a great guy. Highly recommended and I look forward to working with them again.

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!!!

Sarah came through for our firm in a very short amount of time right before Christmas. We had a wonderful, savory, holiday luncheon that Sarah prepared and served us with all the accoutrements one would expect from a top-notch Boston caterer. Fantastic! We'll be calling on her again for our next company function!

John was a delight to work with! I hosted a Bridal Shower Brunch for my daughter with 45 guests, and the food received rave reviews. There was more than enough for everyone and just enough leftovers for me and a few friends to enjoy later. John's attention to detail and his service is excellent. I received five quotes from Thumbtack for caterers and J & L had the best selection, best pricing and best professional and friendly approach.

I had a small function with 30 people and every thing was perfect. The appetizer selection was beautifully presented and had wonderful flavor, Julie was very helpful in selections and extremely easy to work with. I would never use anyone else again. People that live in Boston can have a hard time finding a caterer for a small event. She was wonderful..

Donna and Visnja were amazing! It was my first timing looking for caterers and I had a great experience. I primarily spoke with Donna and she was so bubbly, polite, and professional. She was quick to answer any of my questions and was very accommodating. I had a large family party but did not want to have a formal sit down dinner, so I opted for 3 of their food stations-the boardwalk, the skewer and the salad stations. They set everything up buffet style so my guests could eat at their choosing. I got so many compliments on the food! I was especially pleased to hear that the vegetarians of the group loved having so many tasty options (from the salad station). Next time I need to cater an event I know who to call. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for a caterer!

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.

ThinkingPhones Networks I started in the HR Department at Thinkingphones networks and was immediately given the task to plan the company summer outing. I thought "Piece of cake." My work load on top organizing this event became extremely stressful. I began to search the web for a local event planners and stumbled upon S.Y.B Event Planning Services where I met Soraya who was a lifesaver. Working with Soraya was amazing! I told her my sad story and she made magic happen. She stayed on budget, was very professional, and had a great attitude which is key. The food, the DJ, the venue and the team building exercise were the best. There was so much laughter and positive energy in the air. The summer outing was a huge success!!!! My CEO, CFO, And all the other important people who have acronyms were extremely impressed. I am going to defiantly reach out to her for my company Holiday party and my personal wedding. Thank you so much Soraya for everything you have done for us.

This past Sunday, Renee catered an engagement brunch for 33 people in our Needham home. I was a bit hesitant at first choosing Renee as I did not know anyone who had used her. After checking out her website and talking to her on the phone, I was confident I had chosen the right caterer for our celebration. Renee listened to my ideas and created a menu that was both elegant and rustic at the same time. Her food was out of this world and the presentation equally as brilliant. If you are looking for a special caterer with a special talent (think design and top chef) Renee is the one! I look forward to working with her again .

I was given several options for my son's graduation party based on the budget I had and the number of people I expected. All of the baked entrees were very tasty.Everyone in attendance thought I had ordered from a favorite local Italian restaurant we all like to frequent. The cheese and cracker tray also saved me a lot of time. I supplemented with my own large tossed salad and some of my own desserts. The food was delivered hot and ready to serve with heating trays and burners. There is enough to do at a party so it was a relief to have the main course taken care of. Leftovers for the family the next day are also nice to have when you are tired after a party so order accordingly. Cleanup is a breeze when you have throw away aluminum trays. I highly recommend this service as I have used other caterers and will use Malone Catering again based on this experience.

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.

There's not enough space or time to explain how pleased we were with our pig roast. Thyme and Tide was very professional. The food was phenomenal. Everything was fresh. There was no hidden costs. Price was Fair. We even had leftovers! This guy knows food and he left no mess behind. He'll be back at our house again for many years to come.
