Phil and his team at East West were amazing! They provided a level of service and flexibility on our wedding day that met ever single one of our expectations. The quality of the food was amazing, and the dedication given the rainy weather made their attention to detail that much more appreciated. Phil specifically made the entire process smooth and seamless and it help my husband and I feel at ease throughout the entire day. These guys have high quality food, staff, and management. Very much impressed and would highly recommend them to anyone.

Overall, the Exchange Conference Center (ECC) was a fantastic venue for our August '14 wedding, and the East Meets West (EMW) food was outstanding!

Venue: We were originally drawn to the ECC for its clean lines and decor, soaring windows, great natural light, and uniquely Boston feel. The ECC is very close to several hotels, meaning we did not need to arrange for transportation between the hotels and the venue. Ample free parking for our guests was also a big perk.

Food: Just fabulous. We have been to many weddings where the food is barely better than a school cafeteria. With East Meets West (EMW), there is no question that the food will be fabulous and thrill your most epicurean guests. We also loved how receptive they were to our comments and preferences during the tasting and menu planning.

Service: From a planning perspective, both Rebecca Thomas and Michele Stump went above and beyond- they worked with us to plan our wedding from start to finish. Not only did they have their own great ideas, they were also very receptive to our ideas and helped to turn them into reality. (We considered many other venues before choosing the ECC- it was rare to find someone who would be willing to accommodate requests that were even a little bit outside of the norm.)

The staff was excellent. They hit the right balance- they were never in the way, but they were there when you needed them, often anticipating our needs so that we never even had to ask.

We recommend without hesitation!

So. good. Michele and EMW Catering went truly above and beyond in making my wedding the most amazing day ever. Michele was so helpful in answering all my questions promptly and responding to my requests, even up till the day before the wedding. She was so enthusiastic about my ideas and helped execute them even beyond what I'd thought they could be. She and the chefs were completely accommodating to my food requests, including dealing with vegans, gluten free, and other issues. They also provided ideas for nontraditional food options and delivered beautifully--all of our guests had sky high expectations for the food and drinks and Michele and EMW did not disappoint! We had a completely amazing day and it wouldn't have happened without the terrific staff at EMW. Thank you so much!

My husband and I were very impressed by our experience with East Meets West who catered our wedding. We set up tastings at a few different highly recommended companies. The food at each tasting was very good, but did not come close to East Meets, where the food was fantastic. From that first tasting, I started looking forward to the meal I would have at the wedding. Phil was our catering manager and we could not have been happier. He was quick to respond to my questions. He was extremely easy to work with and had great ideas, which put me at ease knowing everything would go right on the big day. Everything had to be brought to our venue, from the kitchen set up to the linens and flatware. Phil handled everything and I did not have to stress in the slightest. In my opinion, the food is extremely important from a catering company, but so is the wait staff service, which is more than simply delivering a plate of food. Unlike many companies, East Meets West understood that. On the day of our wedding, everything ran smoothly and exactly as envisioned. Our guests raved about the food as well as the service. If anyone wanted something, someone was always there to help provide it. The staff was attentive, friendly while being professional, and the food was perfect. I would highly recommend East Meets West.

East Meets West is a fabulous caterer. The Boston Exchange conference Center, East Meets West's home base is a hidden gem of a place for a wedding. Everything about our experience with them was perfect. A wedding is the sum of many small details and Rebecca and her staff got every one of them right. Everything went off without a hitch. All the moving parts were coordinated smoothly. Everything looked beautiful, from the table settings to the presentation of the food. The food was exceptional. Both the hors d'oeuvres and dinner were creative and delicious. Rebecca helped them design a creative menu.Many guests commented on how unusually good the food was. Also, the staff was very cordial and professional. We got so many compliments from our firends and relatives. Not only was the food and service terrific, but you were terrific to work with. Rebecca paid close attention to the little details as well as the big picture. The confidence we felt working with her helped make the whole experience more relaxed.

The Boston Exchange Conference Center is a great location for a wedding. Our guests loved being on the water looking over the harbor as the sunset. The place has an energy that is great for a wedding.

I can't say enough about these folks and this location. You are lucky if you can snag a date!

I worked with Michele Stump on customizing a cocktail hour and dinner for my wedding. I had close to 140 guests. Michele offered suggestions on what guests enjoy, and was able to help us create delicious options for the bests. Everyone loved the food! The guests said the food was the best ever. They especially enjoyed the filet for dinner and the mini lobster rolls and scallops wrapped in bacon at the cocktail hour. I highly recommend East Meets West as your caterer.

East meets West was absolutely amazing! Phil was our catering manager and he was super friendly, responsive, helpful, professional... Just everything you could ask for! He got back to my initial email right away, and had a quote for me the next day. They put together a delicious, unique breakfast menu for us that our guests absolutely raved about. The wedding was held completely off site so everything had to be brought in, from the kitchen set up to the linens and flatware. Phil handled all of the rentals for me and I did not have to stress in the slightest. On the day of everything ran smoothly, the staff was super friendly and professional, and the food was perfect. While it was on the more expensive side, it was absolutely worth every last penny. I would highly recommend East meets West! Ask for Phil!

East Meets West was a fantastic catering service! Frank was extremely easy to work with, responded to all questions in a prompt manner, and gave fantastic suggestions/recommendations (all of which I took). The tasting alone was delicious, and we couldn't wait for the reception. They are a classy, professional business, and they make you feel like your day is important and unique. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

For us, food was our biggest concern for our wedding. Everything else was a distant second in terms of importance. We wanted THE BEST food and we were willing to pay for it. Because of the extra importance we spoke with 10 different caterers and did 4 different tastings. Needless to say we gained a wealth of experience and knowledge when it comes to caterers in the Boston area. East Meets West exceeded all the others with the quality of their food. In addition, the price was very reasonable! We loved working with them. Our manager for the night, Phil, was fantastic. If you want the best food for your wedding, food people will be talking about for a long time, then look no further.
