Our venue had a list of 8-10 caterers to choose from. ECG made our top 3 as soon as we met Becky. She's awesome. We had a great tasting, and she was on the ball with planning, quotes and logistics. She handled all of our special requests (e.g. getting the bartenders to serve homebrew beer, getting pie and ice cream from a specific local pie shop, etc.). Becky coordinated with rental companies and other vendors to get everything setup and prepped in case of rain. She went above and beyond for little touches like signs, menus and odds and ends that pop up at the last minute. I am so glad we found Becky. I can only guess the stress she saved us. Everything she did to plan, coordinate and cater the wedding was exceptional. And I haven't even mentioned the food. The food was incredible. Our guests raved about the food, and asked for recipes. Seriously, some of my guests emailed to get her contact info so they could get recipes. From start to finish, Becky was a pleasure to work with. I enthusiastically recommend Becky and East Coast Grill without reservation.

We loved working with the East Coast Grill! Becky, the catering manager, was consistently friendly and super-responsive to our questions, as were all of the ECG catering staff on the day of our event. The food was delicious--we received many compliments on it from our guests--and the presentation was lovely. Pricing was comparable, and maybe even a little cheaper, than the other caterers from whom we received estimates. All in all, we were very pleased with the East Coast Grill and would recommend them to anyone.

As if the food that East Coast Grill serves up weren't enough to warrant booking them, their catering manager Becky is absolutely amazing. She really acts as catering manager / event coordinator, and helped make sure our day ran smoothly. The food was wonderful (and Becky made sure to save us a plate of apps, since we were doing photos for the cocktail hour!). Becky is so organized and experienced, and just a super fun and nice person, I highly recommend using East Coast Grill for your catering for any event. I hope I have more parties that require catering in the future, I really enjoyed working with Becky!

Hats off to East Coast Grill catering for the superb catering job they did at our daughter's wedding! Delicious food is only half the "product" at a big event: there is communication beforehand, organization of tables, timing and seemingly effortless delivery of food while chaos may prevail in the kitchen. East Coast Grill succeeded in all these areas along with preparing a delicious meal.
Special compliments to Becky, manager, who has great ideas and is insightful beforehand. Day of she was the ultimate in professionalism: competent, friendly, energetic and eager to deliver the event as we envisioned it. I highly recommend

We had such an awesome experience with Becky and her staff at ECG. ECG is one of our favorite restaurants in Cambridge, so we were thrilled to have them cater our wedding. Becky was incredibly helpful from the very beginning, and applied the knowledge she had about our venue, etc. to help us plan the perfect menu. The entire staff was so friendly and fun. We had a great time working with them all and would highly recommend them. Of course, the food was awesome and fresh, too! Everyone complimented it!

East Coast Grill provided an amazing dining experience at our wedding at the Multicultural Arts Center in Cambridge! The food was amazing! In fact, six months later, our guests are still telling us how much they enjoyed dinner! Becky was wonderful to work with. She was super flexible, always available, and really worked with us to achieve the perfect menu at a reasonable price. The day of the wedding Becky and her team worked their magic and created a truly memorable dining experience for us and our guests! East Coast Grill was worth every penny. If you want some local food with flair, check out ECG! They will not disappoint! Thank you Becky and everyone at ECG for making our wedding a magical, memorable experience we will never forget!

What wasn't great about East Coast Grill at our wedding? The food of course was amazing. Our wedding was mostly outside/in a tent and so the whole grounds smelled amazing with their grills going. All of our guests have not stopped commenting about the food. I really felt like their catering coordinator Becky went above and beyond for out wedding. She came to a couple meetings at the venue with us and then helped out day-of setting up our decorations and kept the day running smoothly (by which I mean I didn't have to worry about anything - best review you can get from a bride). Many of my family commented on how great all their staff was.

We are still hearing from our guests about how great the food was at our wedding. Not only was the food amazing but there were so many options and they really catered to everyone's needs, gluten free, allergies, vegan etc. BUT perhaps the biggest perk of all... BECKY! Could never possibly say enough about this spectacular woman, they really need to offer more than 5 stars on the survey. If we had the chance we would work with them again in a heartbeat.

ECG catered our wedding party at the Cambridge Boat Club and it was just such a pleasure to work with them. Becky is their coordinator and she was always well organized, so helpful and had such great enthusiasm and an upbeat attitude. She worked really well with all the other vendors and just jumped into every situation and handled whatever needed to be done. We also enjoyed the tasting at the restaurant which was very helpful in making decisions. For the event, they set up at the CBC venue with their portable grilles, and the food was beautifully made and done to perfection (which is not easy to do with lamb and swordfish and for a real foodie-crowd). All the staff was well coordinated and friendly, including the bartenders, who really went beyond the call of duty in keeping the gang of kids entertained (not to worry, not with alcohol, but by listening and being charming). Basically it just all went so smoothly and was so tasty we were thrilled to work with them and to be able to share it all with our friends and family.
