We were very happy with the service that Sara's Cooking provided. Sara was friendly and enthusiastic about the meals she catered for us. She handled many additional aspects of the wedding for us including bartenders, rentals, and compliance with our venue's policies. She was prompt in her communication via email and phone. She even found us the perfect linens for our sweetheart table. Our family and friends raved about the meal, and were all very happy with the service of the staff. We would highly recommend Sara's Cooking.

Negotiations were a bit slow, but worked out in the end. It is important to try out the offerings, which we did. Food was well prepared, tasty and nicely presented. Supporting staff could have (should have!) dressed better for the occasion. If doing again, I would ask for an itemized, more detailed estimate. Cost did go up from the initial estimate by 50%, but there were a lot of changes from our end as well. Cleanup was exemplary. Overall, not bad, with small changes and attention to details could be excellent.

William made my retirement party a HUGE success. I had an intimate group of people I worked with over the past 40 years from three different entities. The food was fantastic, the service excellent and when the meal was over the kitchen was immaculate. Highly recommend!! Thank you William and TJ!!

Communication prior to event was excellent, very fast response time to my questions, well-written information provided with FAQ's answered. Rand and his wife arrived on time, very professional, excellent food. They were prepared to work on a professional level, but also were flexible enough to relax and interact with us (an informal family gathering with 2 dogs) once they settled in. Would highly recommend, and will look forward to hiring Rand again in the future.

Let me start by saying, "Thank you to Chef Coe a me his team for going above and beyond to make sure my parents wedding anniversary was a fun fantastic success!" If your here, you've at least begun to feel the stress and pressure that planning a party can present. From the first conversation with Steve, my mind was put at ease. He and his team were prompt to reply to any questions and communicated with us thoroughly throughout the entire process. I had done some research on him and it seemed he had quite an extensive knowledge of an array of cuisines. Which was apparent as soon as we tasted the food he prepared. Amazing doesn't even begin to describe his food and all my guests agreed! When we asked how, his reply, " always fresh ingredients prepared with love and respect for the food." (A cute genuine response I thought) To top it all off they left my kitchen cleaner then when they arrived! Which was appreciated! We just had a few close friends and family for appetizers and an intimate meal to celebrate an important milestone for my parents, 50 yrs of marriage but Steve and his team we're so good attentive and respectful who would have thought they were cooking for royalty. My family and I cannot thank you enough and will be happy to refer you to anyone looking for services of that nature in the future. Sincerely, The Corelli Family

Chef Michael was fantastic! He was extremely responsive and followed through on exactly what he promised- which was a fun, lively night of cooking for my mom’s birthday. He was easy to work with, created delicious and beautiful meals and was so accommodating to our group (which included a few kiddos). The night was perfect and one we’ll always remember- thank you Michael! (Photo of the beautiful pho below)

Food was amazing! She was amazing! I really didn't know what I wanted and she help me through figuring out what would work for my dinner party of 10. I also have some complicated food restrictions and she very willingly work around them. We ended up with an awesome three course meal. Most important she was able to go with the flow, if I didn't have something she needed she worked around it, when guests hadn't pretold me what they don't eat she worked around it. Everyone had a great time and it was because of the food and the service. Highly recommended!!

I have been using Jill to prepare meals for my family and extended family for over a year now. She makes a variety of food always delicious, always healthy, and always custom to suit our choices. Sometimes we get on the vegetarian kik and she prepares the most delicious vegetarian meals. Sometimes we get on a paleo diet kik and she prepares carb free meals that will knock your socks off. When I am entertaining, Jill even prepares meals to assist in my crazy work load. I find her food to be beautifully prepared, and always really diverse. She is generous with her time and an asset to my life and anyone who uses her. My favorite ? Chocolate mousse! And, the most amazing gluten free healthy cookies you'll ever have. Jill prepares meals twice a week for my family and I recommend her to everyone I know .....an angel bearing food, she is a blessing in our lives. In fact, we call her the food fairy as she even helps with our groceries! Thank you Jill. We are grateful for you and all you do

Don is absolutely the best home chef who has prepared full meals for our busy family. Everyone, from Mom and Dad to the kids ranging from teenager to toddler, raves about his delicious and well planned meals. As a testament, everyone would rather eat Don's home prepared meals than go out to a restaurant, especially if the meal if followed up by one of his wife's homemade cookies! His service allows us to eat fine cuisine together as a family without worrying about "keeping a lid" on the little ones at a nice restaurant.

We've used Mike many times over the past 3 years as well as having gone to many of his pop up events. As a private chef, he is awesome. As part of a busy working couple with kids, dinners out are often difficult once you factor in travel, parking, reservations, and child care. It's great to have Mike come to your house and cook a meal which is just as good if not better than the restaurants in Boston. He works with you on the menu and tailors it to your preferences (which is why i prefer his private services overall better than his pop ups). He gets the freshest and best ingredients. We've used him for upscale fancy 10 course meals to low-key clambakes and make-your-own tacos and he's delivered everytime. Costs are usually in keeping with a nice meal out.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
