Random selection via the web is not my style. I broke tradition and pursued FTLOFAD and was very pleased with the outcome. Value per person coupled with creativity, quality and amount of excellent appetizers, desserts and drinks aligned to create an event that still receives compliments! WBRC is very pleased to have worked with Chef Bill, Wendy and crew. They made the party what is was! A success!

Chef Christo catered a lovely backyard retirement party at my home. The food was delicious from appetizers to dinner to dessert. The chicken marsala was yummy. He provided all the paper products, dishes, tables and linens. Excellent service and everything was cleaned up in short order. Would hire again.

We used Little Miss Sophie as the caterer for our wedding celebration at PITA Hall on Plum Island on October 29th, 2016, and I feel like we stumbled upon a hidden gem! Jessica and her team were amazing! From our initial tasting and consultation, Jess was so wonderful and easy to work with. She put together a full tasting based on our email exchanges about our menu preferences, listened to our ideas, asked great questions, and helped us tailor our menu to fit our laid-back vibe and limited budget! They accommodated some last minute tweaks to the menu and were really attentive - they even came and did a walk-through of the venue a few days before to familiarize themselves with the kitchen and set-up. We did all of the planning and set-up for the wedding ourselves, so on the big day it was such a relief to know that the Little Miss Sophie's team were there and had everything under control! When we arrived at the venue post-ceremony, they had passed apps and the appetizer buffet ready to go - everything was beautiful and tasted great! As the night went on, they kept things running smoothly, transitioning from apps to dinner buffet to dessert. Our guests raved about how good everything was, and how the food just seemed to keep coming! At the end of the night, the Little Miss Sophie's team packed up the leftovers for us (which fed our entire extended family for days!) and left the venue's kitchen sparkling. I am so glad we were able to connect with Little Miss Sophie's via Thumbtack -- they were so great to work with and really helped to make our day amazing. We would highly recommend them and use them again in a heartbeat!!

Leslie was a life saver for me when on short notice, I put on a large dinner at Par Sem in Parsonsfield for friends and family. She asked about my price range. Frankly, I did not believe I could afford a caterer. She had a menu that fit my budget. There was a wonderful variety of delicious food, which included an appetizer, a buffet dinner and dessert. She provided real plates and cutlery, so it was much like a restaurant meal. I could not have been more pleased with everything. She was really, really GREAT! You cannot lose using Leslie for any of your catering needs, large or small. All it takes is a call, and like magic...your event is planned. Even if you don't think you can afford a caterer, give her a call! You will be pleasantly surprised to find that you can have your occasion catered, and you are off the hook for cooking and cleaning and can enjoy your event.

Planning the menu was easy with their help. The set up for the party was relaxed, efficient, organized and effective. The appetizers, entrees, and desserts were beautifully presented and everything was delicious. The server, Francisco, was extremely helpful before, during , and after the party with clean up. Many compliments from our guests on the food , display, and service. Overall outstanding catering. Thank you, Visjna and Donna.

We hired Tanya to cook for a 30 birthday party for 12 people. She was so responsive and flexible in planning. We had a family style meal with multiple options for main courses and sides, and a delicious homemade cheesecake for dessert. It was so reasonably priced and so delicious. Friends were talking the next day about how they wanted to hire her to cook for them all the time. Tanya was so professional and left the kitchen even more spotless than it was when she arrived. We really appreciated her service and I would work with her again in a heartbeat!

Sam and his staff catered our nonprofit organization's annual Sandra K Russell Derby Day Benefit for MitoAction a few weeks ago and it was beyond amazing! Our attendees and staff cannot say enough great things about the Merrimack Event team. From start to finish, Sam was polite, attentive, and efficient. He worked with our budget and understood the complexity of the event. Sam went above and beyond to help decorate the event venue beautifully and of course, have his chef design an out of this world Southern Fare dinner menu to match our event's theme. Everyone was so pleased with the delicious food, and has told us out of the 8 years we have hosted this event - this one was truly the best. We cannot wait to use Simply Elegant Catering again next year! Thank you again Sam and team!

Chef Billy exceeded expectations. We had a high profile event and Chef Billy excelled. Not only is his food delicious but his personality is exactly what you want in a caterer. He was efficient, well organized, professional and personable. We plan on hiring Chef Billy again for future events.

I needed a caterer for an event that I was having, and was given Stacey Blounts name and info. I was very satisfied with his professionalism and his food! He answered any and all questions that I had, he was easy to get in contact with and I never had to wait, he was always on point. He was on time, my guests loved him and his food! He was very personable! He will definitely be hired for my next event!
