It is our mission to prepare with honesty, execute with integrity and deliver beyond expectations.
As a mid-size caterer we are “not too big and not too small”. We are selective on how many events we produce in one night in order to guarantee personalized service, custom menu creation and event design. We take a “boutique” approach to each event that we are a part of.
Our staff is comprised of the best in their fields, from event planners to chefs to event managers to front of the house staff. Handpicked by our management team, all our staff are certified by the highest standards in our industry. Every person who will work on your event, from event planner to chef to dishwasher, is focused on our core mission ~ delivering a remarkable experience with an attention to customer service and detail that exceeds expectations.

Not only do we rely on the Rhode Island’s natural beauty to bring guests to our business, but we also pride ourselves on the fresh ingredients that local fishermen and farmers are able to procure from the region. For these reasons, preserving the environment and being conscious of our environmental impact is extremely important to our company.

Blackstone is AMAZING!! Karen and her staff are efficient, detail oriented, and so caring. They made the planning process and absolute breeze and answered all of our questions within hours of asking them. Our guests were blown away at the quality of service and food at the wedding, and so were we! Blackstone absolutely surpassed any expectations we could have had and provided us with an absolutely amazing evening. We would recommend Blackstone blindly.

Gave a wedding for my daughter this weekend for 150 people. From the very beginning, leading to the event, Blackstone could not have been more helpful and genuinely interested in making this a special occasion. At the wedding itself the service and the professionalism of all the help and the food was extraordinary. There never seemed a time any guest was lacking for anything whether a refill, more hors d'oeuvres or removing used plates and glasses and yet they were never underfoot. At dinner, serving that many people and doing it perfectly and timely and all the food hot, was no small feat. Can't begin to tell you how many of our guests complemented them to me, don't ever remember that happening before. Made a memorable occasion unforgettable.

I am so happy that we chose Blackstone Catering for our wedding. We worked with Karen and she was amazing - always available and quick to respond, and filled with ideas on how to make our budget work as hard as it could. Blackstone goes above and beyond your typical catering venue - they really managed the flow of our wedding day, so that myself and my husband didn't have to. The service was great - professional servers and bartenders. The food was delicious - we got so many compliments from guests. Thank you to Karen and Blackstone for helping to make our day so perfect!

Shannon at Blackstone was very accommodating with all of our needs. We were in a bit of a time crunch as we started planning a bit late for the event but they jumped right on board. They were great in working with our venue as well as with our vendors. Shannon was always open minded and honest with us in making recommendations which we very much appreciated. She took in all our needs and made sure they were accommodated. The day of event went swimmingly with very professional staff and great food. Our guests kept talking about those two aspects after the wedding.

We used Blackstone as our caterer for our 7/18/15 wedding at The Towers in Narragansett. We live in NJ and weren't sure where to begin our search for a caterer. We spoke to a few caterers we found on The Knot and made appointments at 4. Blackstone was the only caterer to give you a tasting up front before you sign a contract. This was a big deal for us as we were nervous about signing a contract without even tasting the food. The tasting was DELICIOUS! It wasn't even a close call with the other 3 caterers.

Shannon was very responsive and paid attention to every detail. On the day of our wedding, all of the decorations were exactly as I wanted. Even a last minute addition of having candles added to a few guests' wedding cake for birthday/anniversary celebrations was taken care of. The personal server that the bride/groom are assigned was awesome! He made sure we had a plate of the appetizers, brought us drinks, and boxed up our uneaten food for us to be eaten the next day. All of our decorations were also nicely packed away for my parents to grab before they left for the evening as well.

The food was amazing. Our guests are still talking about it. If you are on the fence about getting the raw bar go for it. The shrimp were HUGE. For our appetizers we had the cheese bar, raw bar, mini chowder/clam cakes, mini wellingtons, chicken quesadillas, mini lobster rolls, and the beef carpaccio. We decided on the caprese salad, statler chicken w/ boursin mashed potatoes, and surf and turf w/ citrus risotto. The food was cooked to perfection and tasted so good. My mouth is watering just thinking about it again.

I would highly recommend Blackstone Caterers for your wedding. You will not be disappointed. It is well worth the money.

Nobody is going to lie to your face and tell you the food at your wedding was good when it was actually crap. But when people are still coming up to us, months after the wedding day, to say that the food Blackstone provided was the best wedding meal they've ever had? That's how you know this team is special. Karen at Blackstone was essentially our consigliere. We had questions about logistics? She had answers. We needed recommendations for DJs, transportation services, or even portable toilets (yep, we needed them)? They were at the ready. And that's even before you get to the food itself, which is hard to top. Her team worked with us to design a bespoke menu, and accommodated all of our requests, ideas, and suggestions without a hint of difficulty. And their day-of service was beyond exceptional. Yes, they can be a bit pricey, but they're worth every single penny.

I don't even know where to begin in thanking everyone at Blackstone Caterers for the phenomenal, over-the-top service we received at our wedding on June 20th at Blithewold Mansion, Gardens & Arboretum in Bristol, RI. My fiancee (now husband), parents and I have been working with Karen Riley Tungett for over a year to plan this event. She has been a true pleasure to work with. She is responsive, thoughtful, kind and professional. She remembers the little things - i.e. specific votives Mom and I liked from the Newport Bridal Show; she made sure they were on our reception tables for the wedding day. The tasting that we did with Karen this past winter was my favorite day of the entire wedding planning process. Blackstone goes above and beyond to make sure that you and your guests are well taken care of. There is a reason they are the best in the business - they have the best product (food, drinks, planning), paired with the best people. Cindy, our day-of coordinator was fantastic. She made sure that everything ran smoothly, and was warm and friendly. As Nick and I walked around with our photographer taking pictures during part of the cocktail hour, a server followed us with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. Our bridal party and parents were also well taken care of. My mom (with my aunt and a friend), made homemade Italian cookies and mini-cheesecakes. Blackstone made sure they were displayed on the dessert bar. Along with the florist (Sayles Livingston), Blackstone made sure that our reception tent and decor was just stunning. Blackstone also coordinated renting specialty linens (Navy liberty key, with accents of coral solid linens) through Rentals Unlimited. You will not be underquoted either - the estimate we received early-on in the process was essentially the exact total cost when all was said and done. I promise, you will never regret choosing Blackstone Caterers. Thank you, Blackstone- and especially Karen. You are the absolute best.

A++++++ service! I worked with Karen and she was by far my favorite vendor. She was incredibly helpful with absolutely everything and went above and beyond to make our day perfect. We had a long engagement so she had to put up with my questions for quite some time, but she was always incredibly patient, helpful, and responsive. She always emails you back within minutes! She even dealt with my mom who was being a bit picky about wine selections :) AND she went out of her way to get my nephew some vanilla ice cream so he could take his pill during the reception. During our reception, she brought us a tray of HD's to the wedding suite since she knew we probably wouldn't get to eat otherwise (true!). And she came over to tell us when the sunset light was perfect for sunset photos, which wasn't even her responsibility but it was so nice that she was looking out for us and we were so grateful that she did! Absolutely PHENOMENAL service. And the food is outstanding. I will sing her praises all day and recommend her to anyone getting married in the area.
