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.

It was such a pleasure to work with John throughout our wedding planning process and ESPECIALLY on the day of our wedding. We would recommend him as one of our top vendors. It is a very close tie in praise between how amazingly good the food was and how professional and prepared his team was. All of the guests enjoyed the meal, which given our last minute changes due to weather, was an amazing improvisation by John to get all of the food out timely and everything was delicious. Picking our menu and doing our tasting was one of the best parts of the planning process and John made it so easy. He had excellent suggestions and was willing to talk through all of our priorities and wants for our day. The final result was a beautifully presented meal that everyone raved about. His team worked so hard the day of our wedding, but multiple guests commented on the positivity and joy they brought to the venue. Everyone was smiling and went above and beyond to provide excellent service. Once we found J&L Catering, it was hard to find a better value for our money for the extent of the services John and his team provided. We would recommend him to anyone in the future for any catering needs.

Colin prepared a meal for 13 of us during our annual "girls" weekend getaway. He arrived promptly and went right to work preparing our meal. He created delicious appetizers (our favorite was the grilled cheese and tomato appetizer, amazing!). Then moved on to our meal of Cornish hens and Herbed Cod. Both delicious. We all raved about the food. He has his own style complete with comic relief. Fabulous!

Chef Tina--a woman of many talents, one of which is the preparation of outrageously delicious appetizers, entrées , side dishes and desserts you just cannot resist. A very personable woman, Chef Tina takes great care in making one feel comfortable and totally at ease. Her meals are of such a variety one has no problem in choosing any of her vast inventory of dishes she prepares, from old-style Italian lasagna to a New England pot roast, so tender and testy as to warm the tummy of even the most difficult patron. Although I only had a small number of family members for her to administer, Chef Tina has the skills, expertise and facilities to accommodate large groups of people. More than willing and able to create exactly the kind of meal one has in mind, she also offers helpful suggestions along the way. Did I mention that her desserts are absolutely heavenly? My husband and I had the pleasure of enjoying individual-size blueberry and apple crunch pies, just to mention a couple of her creations. Carol A. of Bridgewater, Ma. I give Chef Tina 5 stars out of 5 stars.

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)

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

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!!

    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.

    Discovering FitMeals was one of the best things we could have done for our busy family. Chef Mykayla is a true professional; her meals are restaurant-quality, creative and healthy. She is happy to accommodate requests and dietary preferences, and has gladly made side and main dishes to help our family celebrate special occasions and holidays. Chef Mykayla usually visits our home when we are not there and, aside from the lovely aromas and fully stocked fridge, she leaves the kitchen as thought she was never there. When we do see Mykayla in person, she is extremely personable and lovely to our dog and children. Thank you FitMeals!

    Adam prepared an amazing, custom menu for us! He was diligent about researching ingredients to accommodate my wife's food allergies and delivered a fantastic dinner. He was personable, professional and on time… a true Chef! Food was amazing! Timing of each plate was perfect, while we sat back and enjoyed great conversation during our courses. Food presentations were fit for TV and everything was made fresh. I'd find it hard to ask for more. Highly Recommend!

    What an unbelievable experience Chef William provided. Not only was it more affordable than my wife going out to dinner but he prepared a 5 course meal with an incredible flowerless chocolate cake for dessert. My wife and I don't get a lot of time together with small children. But this night, we got to lay on the couch together watching a movie while Chef Willaim prepared our dinner and it was a wonderful date. The food was absolutely delicious and the best part is he cleaned our kitchen better than we do. I can't recommend him enough to anyone that wants to either host a large fun party where he is teaching you how to cook or a private romantic dinner like we did. Forever grateful T&S.
