Thank God for our caterer! Gary and his team made our day so much more relaxing and picked up the ball when our venue switched their practices and let our event coordinator go at the last minute before our wedding day!

The person who was running the kitchen staff couldn't have been nicer. I wish I could remember her name, but she was awesome!

The food was to die and our guests are still talking about it.
We felt that the caterers knew what we wanted and what we expected. They were all great. Thank you so much!!!!

Creative Catering was one of four possible caterers for our venue. I am SO glad we chose them! First of all, after looking at all menus, they had the most extensive and seemed to have the best value.

After attending the tasting, we were totally sold. Everything we tasted was amazing. Gary was very easy to talk to and very responsive. He is very flexible and understanding of any food allergies.

I was always confident in the Creative Catering team and they totally delivered. EVERYONE raved how good the food was (especially the Butternut Squash Ravioli!). The wait staff was excellent. They even sent us home with all the extras (it was a buffet) and even made up some plates for my grandfather who lives alone.

I highly recommend Creative Catering!

Creative Catering did an AMAZING job. The food was amazing, the room looked fabulous & the tables were just beautiful. Everything could not have been any more perfect. They even noticed the DJ was going to make a big mistake with the Bride & Groom first dance and saved the day!

Hands down best food I have ever had at a wedding. Annie was our coordinator and did an outstanding job!! Everyone was served in a timely manor and the servers were wonderful. The planning process was made easy and they were very flexible with getting linens to match our colors. Our guests were so happy with the food, one of my husbands uncle told us that it was the best steak he ever had--he was able to cut it with a butter knife! The presentation was very elegant and the price was affordable. If you want your guests to go home satisfied and full, use Creative Catering.

Gary and his team at Creative Catering are truly talented and caring people. From the very first time we were in contact with the company we were impressed with them. We attended a group tasting at a beautiful mansion in Beverly and during the tasting Gary spent time at each table offering advice and answering questions. The food was beyond delicious and the prices are extremely reasonable. Gary shared his advice with us regarding so many things throughout the planning process (gift registries, reception seating options, timeline/flow of day, setting aside time for bride and groom during the day, the list just goes on!). Our venue didn't have a kitchen and Creative Catering did an absolutely amazing job with taking care of the city permits and working with our venue to ensure the food was served hot. We've received so many compliments regarding the catering company we are thrilled to have worked with them. My favorite compliment we received was from two older guests who asked for thier leftovers to be boxed up so they could take them home. The servers had no issue in responding to the requests and our two guests were able to enjoy the rest of their meals later instead of the food being wasted! The A+ work, pleasant and friendly staff, and amazing food made for a perfect wedding day!

The food was AMAZING!!! Everyone loved what was served, from the hors d'oeuvres to the salad to the main course, people raved about all of it. A lot of compliments in particular on the lobster puffs, beef kabob skewers, and baked stuffed haddock. Our favorite was the filet mignon and butternut squash ravioli. Since it was buffet-style, they even packed up the leftovers to send home with people! We were psyched when we found the filet mignon and ravioli in our fridge the next day!
Gary was a pleasure to work with and was very helpful in providing a timeline for wedding day. They helped take all the stress out of planning the day!

We offered our guests butternut squash ravioli, eggplant rollitini and baked salmon. We had fruit and cheese as appetizer. Everything was easy and excellent. Gary is very laid back and made all of us involved very comfortable as he led us through decisions on tablecloths, food choices and timing. They are the best.

Seriously, they were amazing from the minute I met Gary! We loved everything they fed us, mind you at 10:30 am!! Filet, salad, salmon, appetizers, we didn't change a thing we tried. The best part was still people are complimenting how great they were right down to the presentation of the salad. Having working in the restaurant industry along with SEVERAL guests including GM of a restaurant and a Golf club, hands down they were ALL impressed. Gary checked, double checked, triple checked to ensure he had the correct information about all my guests. Hands down, I highly recommend them!

Gary and the team at Creative Catering were amazing. He was a joy to work with, and it actually makes me a little sad that the event is over so we can't work with them further! The food is amazing and my guests are still raving about how good it was. We had a few dietary restrictions, and Gary was able to make suggestions and arrangements for them. He answered all our questions quickly, and also was so knowledgeable about how to throw a wedding in general. He clearly knows his line of business. Also, they made arrangements for the day of for a waiter to follow us around with apps so we ate during photos.

I would recommend working with Creative Catering every day of the week. I am currently trying to think of events I can throw that they can cater so I can work with them again.

It was a pleasure to work with Gary throughout the whole process. we had a very informative first meeting, not just about catering but the whole wedding process in general. My husband and I really enjoyed the tasting, and it helped us decide on appetizers and meals. On the day of the wedding, I did not have to worry about the thing. All went as planned, including our guests' meals with specific food allergies. We loved the food and so did our guests. A great aunt of mine said it was the "best steak she has had in her entire life."

Our daughter's wedding was held at the Elks at Bass Rocks on 9/21/2013 and we could not have been more pleased with the food and service provided by Creative Catering! They are one of four recommended vendors at the Elks, and we found that this caterer was simply outstanding! All of our questions and concerns were immediately addressed, and Gary Clemenzi enjoys giving advice that is very useful and important to know--he even throws in marriage advice that is practical and amusing! His prices are very, very reasonable in view of the quality and quantity of his food.

The menu at CC is very extensive, especially the appetizers and side vegetables--you will be amazed at the offerings! As hors d'oeuvres, our choices included fig and gorgonzola tarts, HOMEMADE sweet and sour meatballs, potato knishes, pulled pork sliders and chicken satay. (All were delicious!) Our main dishes were butternut squash ravioli, boneless beef short ribs, and chicken with a lovely cognac creme fraiche sauce--EVERYONE RAVED ABOUT THE QUALITY OF THE FOOD! The servers were very attentive to the guests and we were extremely pleased with all that Creative Catering provided to make this a truly memorable part of this special day. Do NOT hesitate to hire this caterer!

Gary Clemenzo guided us through our wedding choices and everything was phenomenal! The servers were also wonderful!

We chose the Butternut Squash Ravioli, Braised Short Ribs and Lemon Chicken for the meals - all delicious, large portions! The ravioli is a knockout! The passed h'or d'oeuvres - fig and cheese pastries, sweet and sour meatballs, and more were also excellent.

Throughout the process, we enjoyed a high level of responsiveness along with the feeling of a family business's personalized service. Gary adjusted the plan as needed, and was available when I needed to stop by and look at changing the napkin colors, etc. Thank you Gary, Peggy, and team! Kate and Tim

Gary and Creative are great! The food at my wedding was amazing- Everyone kept talking about how good the steak was and scalloped potatoes!! They were very pleasant to work with and I was extremely happy with them. The only thing that I was unhappy with was we got our cake through their preferred bakery which was konditor meister- I was so disappointed with the cake it was NOT the cake I ordered and actually paid extra for. They did give me a refund after the wedding- Luckily for me the cake wasnt a huge deal for me but it still was disappointing..

The food and service staff for my wedding were outstanding! They were the most budget friendly catering company I could find in MA and the low cost did not read to the food quality AT ALL. The response times with our event manager and the ease at which we were able to contact our event manager were a little slow. I was not allways 100% confidant that what I was asking for was being understood. But I will say that everything worked out excelent on the big day and that the wait staff and dinner quality get high marks!

Creative Catering helped us put together a menu that was exactly what we wanted for us and our 175 guests- a bruschetta table, a full compliment of ten different hors d'oeuvres, and a pasta station - at a really good price. The venue looked beautiful, the service was excellent (very friendly!), and everyone, including our "foodie" relatives, were raving about the amazing spread! Gary even connected us to our baker when we told him we wanted cupcakes for dessert. Knowing we'd be busy once we entered the hall, they also brought food into the bridal suite before introductions to make sure we were able to enjoy it ahead of time.

Let me start off by saying that there were very few people that we have worked with throughout the wedding process who were as professional and as helpful as Gary Clemenzi. He listened to us, worked with us and was so flexible with everything we wanted. Our wedding venue (Smith Barn) had a list of 5 approved caterers so we decided to contact 3 of them and we would pick from there. Gary called me personally and set up a tasting immediately. Vinwood and Cloverleaf (the other two we contacted) seemed to care less whether or not we went with them. We knew immediately that we wanted to work with Creative.

We had so many compliments on the food and the diversity of the food offered. I was so excited that we would be able to offer some more seasonal items like butternut squash ravioli and cranberry stuffed chicken. The day went by and we couldn't have been happier.

My only complaint would be that Gary, who is the owner that we worked with, was not present at the reception- his wife was instead. While that was not a problem for us, we had never talked about who would be there, we were under the impression the entire time that it would be Gary, thus he was our main contact for EVERYTHING. We had many friends who were helping us to set up (our friend is a pastry chef and she made 40 pies for the wedding instead of cake and we had 6 more people to go in [including our party planner] and set up the barn between the ceremony and the reception). They all told me that they were treated rudely and that she wasn't at all accommodating. I understand that wedding receptions can be highly stressful, but Gary was aware of the fact that we had friends coming in to help set up, he knew that they knew how to arrange everything and he and I had talked about my friend coming in to set up the pie stand/station. I felt that if he had better communicated with me about who would be the event manager we could have avoided some hurt feelings. Aside from her attitude, everything was great.

He listened to us, worked with us and was so flexible with everything we wanted. Our wedding venue (Smith Barn) had a list of 5 approved caterers so we decided to contact 3 of them and we would pick from there. Gary called me personally and set up a tasting immediately. Vinwood and Cloverleaf (the other two we contacted) seemed to care less whether or not we went with them. We knew immediately that we wanted to work with Creative.

We had so many compliments on the food and the diversity of the food offered. I was so excited that we would be able to offer some more seasonal items like butternut squash ravioli and cranberry stuffed chicken. The day went by and we couldn't have been happier.

My only complaint would be that Gary, who is the owner that we worked with, was not present at the reception- his wife was instead. While that was not a problem for us, we had never talked about who would be there, we were under the impression the entire time that it would be Gary, thus he was our main contact for EVERYTHING. We had many friends who were helping us to set up (our friend is a pastry chef and she made 40 pies for the wedding instead of cake and we had 6 more people to go in [including our party planner] and set up the barn between the ceremony and the reception). They all told me that they were treated rudely and that she wasn't at all accommodating. I understand that wedding receptions can be highly stressful, but Gary was aware of the fact that we had friends coming in to help set up, he knew that they knew how to arrange everything and he and I had talked about my friend coming in to set up the pie stand/station. I felt that if he had better communicated with me about who would be the event manager we could have avoided some hurt feelings. Aside from her attitude, everything was great. Read less

Creative Catering responded with the following comments:

The actual events, were some key elements to the Table decorations that the Bride's planners did not drop off, such as table overlays, we had to strip over 20 guests tables of settings and reset as guests were arriving early, because the friends forgot to drop off but were also doing pictures. Things we did are best to accommodate, and decided not to reveal to Bride. This happens when guests are also party decorators, they get distracted. The friends did not approach a Creative manager it was actually someone else that was concerned about the plan they had, and guests were arriving 45 minutes early. We have now adjusted and go in detail with Bridal Couples on there part of set ups. Gary was also there helping with last minute decorations that the friends let slip.

Gary and the team from Creative Catering did an amazing job at our wedding at Misselwood. We received so many compliments on the food and portion sizes. They were accommodating when we needed to make some changes based on food allergies or child options. I highly recommend this catering company.

We had our wedding at Hammond Castle which limited our choice of caterers to three. Creative Catering was the only one that hosted a free food tasting event which we were so grateful for because their food really is delicious. They were also the cheapest! Gary, whom we worked with, was extremely nice and responsive. He kept giving us suggestions and advice for the wedding. We were also surprised that he offered that they’d make a signature drink for our wedding provided that we give them the recipe and liquor.

On our wedding day we didn’t hear of any issues and the food was brought out promptly and warm. It was also very good and cooked well which was a worry because one of the dishes was filet mignon. Many guests complimented the food as well.

Although we absolutely loved the food and are guests were very happy, we were disappointed with the service towards us – the bride and groom. Gary told us that when the ceremony was over, he would make sure that there was food in the bridal suite and something to drink since he knows how busy it can get after the ceremony and he wanted us to enjoy the appetizers. Well, the food or drinks were never there. We had to ask people from our wedding party to grab some for us and by the time they were able to go down, many of the appetizers had run out. I was really disappointed to not be able to try everything. Plus, we were never given a glass of our signature drink either. Gary also promised us that he would grab us when our main entrée was served so that we wouldn’t miss out on eating it. This was also never done. Luckily my maid of honor was able to pull us away from our guests. Finally, the waitress for our sweetheart table wasn’t very attentive. She wouldn’t come by that often and at one point we had to actually walk to the bar to get our own drinks. This should never be the case for the bride and groom.

Besides these things we truly did enjoy the food with Creative Catering and were happy we chose them.

Our wedding venue required that we choose one of their three caterers. Creative Catering by far had the best food at the tastings and the best prices. The food they provided for our wedding was top notch. From the appetizers to the entrees, everything was absolutely delicious. Our guests are still talking about how much they enjoyed the food. Gary was there for us every step of the way. They were very flexible with last minute menu changes and head count changes. They made the whole process easy and stress free. Barbara was there for our reception. It was the first time we met her, but she was very friendly, helpful and professional.

Creative Catering is a personal business. You get to know Gary, the owner, from the beginning and he will help you in any way he can. He has great advice and you can tell he's been in the business for a long time. He was accommodating and helpful while deciding on the menu and he always followed through. He said everyone is served in minutes, it is true. Since Gary cares so much about his business you can tell he hires only those who would provide the same amount of professionalism. The staff on site the day off my wedding were pleasant and efficient and everyone enjoyed their food, and my side of the family is full of picky eaters!

The food was one of the top things that we really wanted our guests to be wowed with at our wedding. Gary and his staff did just that. Our guests keep telling us how amazing the food was. The portions were all very generous. We had filet mignon as a meal choice and guests were amazed at the size of the cut of meat. We really got our moneys worth and my family said the filet was so tender they could cut it with a butter knife. People even raved about the hor derves! Gary said everyone would be served in 12 minutes and they were. We are so happy we chose Creative Catering for our wedding! One thing your guests will always remember is the food and we definetley impressed our guests with the food and service of Creative Catering.

Every interaction with the ownership and staff of Creative Catering was excellent, from our initial contact to the last moments of leaving the reception. During the time that we were planning the wedding, Gary was a huge help in providing tips and techniques to make almost every aspect of the event easier. He was always available to consult on menu choices. It is noteworthy that he never made any attempt to "upsell" us but got a good picture of what we were looking and advised us accordingly. His sense of humor and patience were much appreciated. The tasting that we attended was one of the best meals that I have ever eaten. When it came time for the wedding, he delivered flawlessly on quality, timing, presentation, flavor and any other aspect you can think of. A number of our guests went out of their way to let us know that the meal was excellent. Our dealing with Creative Catering was one of the highlights of the whole wedding experience. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

We can't say enough wonderful things about Creative Catering. Gary and the rest of his staff were a pleasure to work with throughout the entire wedding planning process. We started out unsure of what style of dinner/event we wanted. Never having planned a wedding before, we had a lot of questions about the menu and overall event planning. Creative answered our questions quickly and thoroughly and generally provided a lot of guidance and (really helpful!) advice in our menu and overall event planning. The food at our wedding was absolutely delicious -- several guests have told us it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding. The catering staff was professional and attentive, but inconspicuous. The wait staff even ran out in the rain to bring us drinks and appetizers while we were taking pictures. We are so grateful to Creative for making our event and our meal absolutely perfect.

Creative Catering did an excellent job catering our wedding at Winnekenni Castle. The guests raved about the food, especially the salad and ravioli, but everyone agreed that it all was excellent. People were also really impressed with the service of the waitstaff. My aunts said the servers were very attentive, always near their table if they needed anything, constantly refilling their water glasses, etc. My parents said people came up to them all night and genuinely expressed how the catering had far exceeded their expectations. Our event coordinator, Elissa, was also a pleasure to work with. My aunt and bridesman were setting up at the castle and said the waitstaff was efficient, organized, and got everything set up very quickly. Additionally, Gary was so easy to work with and responsive during the wedding planning process.

The wait staff, bartenders, chefs, event managers and event coordinator performed with the utmost courtesy, professionalism and attention to detail. The food and service were outstanding and the guests were treated with great care. I truly have no negative comments as I cannot imagine a more successful experience. In addition, this was all arranged by phone from another state.

He was even incredibly flexible with some last minute budget issues we had. He was always honest and open with us about everything from specific food questions to just general wedding questions. At my venue, Smith Barn in Peabody, the caterers are responsible for putting together everything and they did a wonderful job especially considering I was not the most organized bride! The food was amazing, everyone commented, and the timing of the day went off without a hitch. I would definitely recommend them to anyone!

We are very happy that we chose Creative Catering for our wedding. The dinner was amazing and all of our guests can't stop raving about the quality of food and service. Barbara and Gary were very easy to work with and helpful through the planning process with any questions--catering related or otherwise. We made many changes to the menu throughout the process without problem and always had an easy-to-follow outline so there was no confusion. I highly recommend the lemonade and iced tea station as guests enter the venue (before the ceremony). It was inexpensive and welcomed the guests in a unique way with a mini social time before they were seated, especially on such a hot day. Although it wasn't on the menu, Gary was able to make basil lemonade for us and it was fantastic. I also suggest the ice cream sundae bar--huge hit! My only wish is to be a guest at a Creative Catering event so I could enjoy all they have to offer from a guest's perspective!

I unfortunately didn't have time to eat my dinner that night (boo!) but it looked great and all of my guests were raving about it (surf & turf). The appetizers, which I did have, were amazing. Thank you Gary and your staff for making it so simple and fun!

Gary and his team at Creative Catering were unbelievable! Our venue requires you to choose from 3 caterer options, and Creative provided a better menu, far better service and way better prices than the other options. During the planning process Gary offered so many planning tips to make the process easier – he is such a pro! During our wedding, and for months after, we heard rave reviews from our guests about the food (the filet mignon was to die for by the way, and the appetizers were outstanding!). I am one of those brides that actually sat and ate my dinner – all of it – so I give this review having full knowledge of how dinner was the actual day of our wedding! The staff was professional, courteous, and attentive, and made themselves available without being intrusive. My mom had a food allergy issue so we planned ahead to substitute one part of dinner for her, and Gary made a point to visit her table during dinner to make sure everything was right – she was so impressed he not only remembered the substitution, but took the time to check on her! Dinner was hot, delicious, and the presentation from hors d’oeuvres to the cake buffet was outstanding. Having come from a hotel/catering managerial background I have a lot of experience planning and executing banquets and weddings – I won’t lie, I’m hard to impress. Creative Catering impressed the heck out of me, and all of our guests. I can wholeheartedly 100% recommend them!

Creative Catering impressed the heck out of me, and all of our guests. I can wholeheartedly 100% recommend them! Read less

Creative catering did our wedding and they were great. We still get compliments on the food. They asked us what we wanted served and they took care of the whole day from start to finish. The food, the cake, the deserts, everything was perfect. We highly recommend them for your special day. They were professional in every single way.

Creative catering does a great job and creates a beautiful presentation. The food was outstanding and Gary and Carolyn were great to work with. My sister and I both used them for our weddings and I would recommend them. There was a slight mix up with the catering manager that evening but everything went really smooth. I received several comments about the food being outstanding.

Our first coordinator, Carolyn, was nice enough, but was terrible about returning calls/emails and even the simplest tasks weren't done (we changed from salmon to swordfish - it took 4 reminders and 2 copies of our event order to get it changed for good).

Anyway, we met with Gary a month before the wedding and I decided to coordinate with him from then on thinking it would be easier. Not so much. He is just as bad with email, and seems stretched way too thin.

The day of the wedding went off without a hitch, though. The food was delish, but for the mental anguish they caused - I would not recommend them.

I only had a few bites of my dinner, but everyone said it was fantastic. Apparently some of the guests came up to my mother and told her that their filet mignon was better than any they’ve had at high-end Boston steakhouses. Apparently the apps were delicious, and I can personally vouch for the butternut squash ravioli, which was amazing. However, so many people have complimented me on the waitstaff; apparently they were friendly, courteous and on top of everything

Creative Catering was wonderful for our wedding. The food was excellent and our guests are still talking about it. They were so attentive to the wedding party during pictures (everyone always had a drink and plenty of appetizers to eat). Gary gave great suggestions about our food choices and had great advice about wedding planning in general. Our reception went so smoothly because of the timeline from Creative Catering. They also worked very well with our other vendors. I highly recommend them.
