Working with Corcoran Caterers was a fabulous experience from day one. With a wedding everything is an unknown--at least for those getting married for the first time--and as the unknowns pile up, anxiety gets to be a real problem. Sitting down with Laura Hennigan for the first time gave me an instant feeling of confidence-- here was a woman who we could trust, I thought---and from that moment on her and her staff at Corcoran were easily the most integral part of our wedding puzzle. She knew our venue well (in fact she had recently been married there!), she had a creative sense of style and vision which consistently overlapped with and expanded our own, her knowledge of food and food pairings was extensive and impressive, and her positive attitude and energy never flagged for two months straight.

When our initial proposal came in too high, Laura patiently worked with us tweaking the menu until we were totally satisfied. Our tasting was a real treat too---food was plentiful and delicious and we felt like consumer royalty for a day. As the day fast approached, Laura was a calming force and an organizational godsend, and on the day of our wedding, her and the staff at Corcoran did an absolutely superlative job; everything was gorgeous---even more so than I had imagined it could be--the food was spectacular and all of our guests were thrilled, and my wife and I could enjoy the day carelessly and happily.

Exceptional food, fair prices, professional service, and a genuine sense of joy, style and excitement; these are the things we expected in a caterer and hoped to find, and in each category Corcoran Caterers matched and exceeded our expectations.

ps. (and this is true) we loved them so much we used them again three weeks later for the post-nuptial celebration with our friends. with only 48hrs advanced noticed we had two bartenders and a huge, delicious finger food spread. cheers to Laura and Corcoran Caterers!

Hands down AMAZING. Call them right now, and ask for Sue. She is incredibly sweet, fun, responsive and catered two of my friends weddings, so I already knew I liked the food. But that doesn't even begin to explain how amazing Sue was!! She found ways to save us money and still execute our vision. She didn't bat an eyelash when I asked if they could make us a few items not on the menu and cater to a few dietary restrictions. Plus, the food was amazing to boot. We had bacon wrapped dates, spicy crab cake, vegan summer rolls, cucumber soup, a mac & cheese bar, flank steak, kale salad, tofu kabobs, heirloom tomato salad, roasted veggie stand, and more. Corcoran also made our cake -- italian wedding cake with butter cream, and it was beautiful and delicious. It was 97 the day of our wedding, and I think Sue personally ran around and tried to make sure everyone stayed hydrated. She is amazing. I would hire again in an instant!

Our experience with everyone at Corcoran, especially Sue Pavlinski, was nothing short of amazing. They are professional, thorough, and the food was superb. We recieved nothing but stellar compliments through the night. Sue is a joy to work with. She handled every detail, changes in menu, decorations, special guest needs, you name it. The display she did on our buffet was truly a work of art. I was 0% stressed about anything Corcoran handled and the evening went off without a hitch. Thank you Sue and Corcoran!

We used Corcoran Caterers for our daughter's wedding weekend and everything was absolutely perfect! We had fantastic food at our 4th of July barbeque, cocktail reception, seated dinner with three entree choices, dessert buffet and after wedding brunch all provided by Corcoran. Our guests commented on the delicious food and the fantastic service. The staff were always available, responsive and made us all feel so well cared for.

Thank you to Martha and her staff for providing us with a delicious menu focusing on fresh produce of the season. Corcoran has outstanding chefs and pastry chefs - no need to look elsewhere for a wonderful wedding cake.

Finally, Martha was very sensitive to working with a budget. Since we were doing so many meals, that was a real factor and we were so happy with our result.

We heartily recommend Corcoran Caterers for ease of planning, outstanding food, and flawless service.

We used Corcoran Caterers for our wedding this June and could not have imagined a more flawless day and which we owe in part to their staff. We were so impressed with the service, care and consideration we received that we have been telling anyone who will listen and recommending Corcoran to all of our friends. Our guests continue to talk about the food which were heavy hors d'oeuvres and included mini crab cakes, pigs in a blanket, a risotto station, you name it we had it. They accommodated all of the dietary restrictions for our guests with tasty choices everyone could enjoy. They made our wedding favors which were bacon maple cupcakes and everyone LOVED them. Our cake was beautiful, the staff was respectful and attentive and our coordinator Sue was AMAZING. Their professionalism and care made our wedding such a wonderful and memorable day.

Hors d'oeuvres! Linen colors! Specialty cocktails! The Caterer is so important and by far the glue to running a smooth event…and I am incredibly happy to say that Corcoran Caterers did the MOST FABULOUS job!!! We had the pleasure of working with Martha and from day one she was wonderful! Very responsive & informative (especially since if you haven't hosted a large event before, you are new to many things, and it's a learning process) she made really great suggestions and was a great resource to bounce ideas around from food selections & linens to set-up and creating a reasonable timeline. Martha was also extremely personable and enthusiastic which are great qualities to have when you are working so closely with someone on so many important details. One thing she did that really stood out was, after the ceremony…my husband & I went off to a separate room to let the first couple moments of being married really sink in, and sweet Martha politely knocked on the door to congratulate us and greeted us with a plate of appetizers--to make sure we ate and didn't miss out on anything. She was very motherly in that way which was so appreciated. Without the incredible hard work, organization and attention to detail that we received from Martha & her team, our wedding would not have been as spectacular as it was. We cannot thank Corcoran enough! :)
Now for the food…oh my goodness…the food was SO outrageously DELICIOUS!!! My mouth is watering just thinking of how tasty the menu was! From the hors d'oeuvres to the main course & cake, everything was out of this world!! They just knocked it out of the park!!! We received countless compliments on how fantastic the food was at our wedding and we just can't express how impressed we were with Corcoran's team!!
Speaking of team! Their staff (servers, bartenders, etc.) were just the most lovely people! So friendly & so professional! Cannot say enough great things about our experience with Corcoran Caterers. FIVE STARS!! :)

Martha and Chuck from Corcoran Caterers were absolutely wonderful! I could not have asked for better caterers! The food was amazing and that was all the guests could talk about! Martha provided me with many choices and was interested in what we like to eat and helped us narrow down to our selections. We had a life threatening peanut allergy and Corcoran was so accommodating! The cake was as delicious as it looked. The table settings were so professional and the service was impeccable. In addition to the wonderful service at the day of the wedding, Martha has helped through the wedding process from beginning to end. She has answer several of my emails and phone calls and even helped me with several non-catering questions. She has been so patient with me and I could not have asked for a better catering company. I would highly recommend Martha and Chuck! They are simply the BEST!

I cannot say enough good things about Sue Pavlinski and Corcoran Caterers. Sue was absolutely wonderful to work with throughout the planning process. She was attentive, responsive, always positive and very helpful. And on the day of, she was wonderful, so organized and very always around to make sure things were running smoothly. We had a number of guests comment on how delicious the food was and how professional the wait staff was (including one of our family members who is a former mayor and has attending his fair share of formal dining events). Many thanks to Sue and Corcoran, I would highly recommend them to anyone!

Sue Pavlinski is THE class act of caterers. Now that our wedding is over, we are really going to miss her! The presentation, food, and professionalism of Corcoran were flawless throughout the entire planning and execution process.

We had a morning wedding with a Fall afternoon reception. We had a different idea for the food and flow than the standard wedding reception. All small plates and no assigned seating.

1. The Food - My husband and I wanted a Fall comfort food theme. Sue suggested demitasse butternut squash soup, pulled pork sliders, spicy cole slaw, a mac and cheese station with toppings, cheeseburger sliders, and these perfect little dessert shooters (one pumpkin and one s'more). A month after our wedding, people are still raving about the delicious food at our wedding reception. We also wanted to do a "build your own" bloody mary bar. Sue and her staff executed it perfectly. Our guests loved it!! Sue was also very flexible with our choices for the bar, including specialty pumpkin beers.

2. The Personal Attention - From our first email with Corcoran, we felt like Sue's number one client. She was incredibly responsive, and most of all listened to our ideas of what we wanted for our reception. On our wedding day, Sue had her staff bring my husband and I a plate, or we may not have had an opportunity to try it!

3. The Presentation - The buffet and bars looked absolutely beautiful and tasteful. We used deep orange and deep red tablecloths and provided gourds and pumpkins for Sue to arrange. Her work was amazing. Sue's assistant, Beth Levi, was also an incredible help on our big day! She is extremely hardworking with the same tasteful eye.

Sue never tried to push services on us. She helped us work within a budget, adding here and trimming there. Our wedding day turned out better than we could have imagined, thanks largely to Corcoran Caterers!

Where can I even begin? Sue. Sue is the best. Most helpful, patient, and accommodating person you can imagine. She is so creative and open to ideas, it really allowed me to bring my vision to life at the reception. She agreed to take a ton (lanterns for centerpieces, menus, placecards...) of stuff in their truck to our venue because they wouldn't allow us to drop anything off early. The service throughout the night was fantastic, everything was set up so beautifully, and exactly as we had discussed. The food was wonderful, I made sure to eat it! But I was a little sad to not have much of our cocktail hour food- it was so yummy. Corcoran may have been a little pricier than other catering companies, but we trusted them based on their excellent reputation and their service throughout our planning process and they far exceeded our expectations. I could go on and on about how amazing they were! Highly recommend them for your big day if you want awesome service and delicious food!!
