From the very beginning, working with the staff - Kait, Kelsey and Vanessa - to plan our rehearsal dinner at the Cafe at Easy Entertaining was an extremely positive experience. They were extremely responsive to our emails and inquiries, extremely flexible when it came to planning, and they came up with a wonderful proposed seasonal menu that was well within our budget. The actual dinner was beyond what we could have imagined. The attentiveness of staff was wonderful, and the food was just so amazing. For dessert we offered our guests their gourmet donuts - they were very filling but they were so good! We look forward to stopping by on Donut Fridays to sample some more of them! We cannot wait to come back and see what else they have to offer!
Thanks again to everyone who made our evening such an enjoyable success!

I've used Easy Entertaining for several occasions, including a wedding. The staff is so responsive, helpful and a breeze to work with. The food is fantastic and they've always been so flexible and accommodating, even when I've had last minute requests. They really put my mind at ease so that I can focus on enjoying the event.

The best decision of our wedding! No less than 20 people came up to me throughout the night and said "this is the best food I ever had at a wedding." Easy Entertaining knocked the socks off of our guests, and we are so pleased that we worked with them!

We were treated like the company’s #1 priority throughout the whole planning process. The owner, Kait, managed all of the calls and directed the staff on our wedding day; the head chef, Ashley, led our tasting and was the first person to show up on the day-of; and our event coordinator, Kelsey, expertly responded to every question along the way (and I asked a lot!). The whole team was always thorough and helpful - offering suggestions on countless parts of the event management, from the appropriate place settings to how to arrange the tables in the tent. Not a single ball was dropped along the way!

On the day of, the food exceeded every expectation. The food was fresh, creative, and gourmet, and the presentation of it was beautiful. From the fish and chips to the sliders to the grilled vegetables, everything was delicious. And, the donut bar that Easy Entertaining organized for dessert was a huge hit! We knew that we loved the food from our tasting, but knowing that it turned out great with 100+ guests, and that they enjoyed it as much as we hoped, is such a great feeling.

Lastly, the event management was so well-oiled that I didn't have to spend an iota of brain power thinking about it. The team showed up and setup early, the bartenders always knew which drink I wanted, our butler Frank was THE BEST (I wouldn't have eaten anything if it weren't for him - he was a hero), and the entire staff at the event were smiling and professional.

Easy Entertaining is extraordinary in every way. We’d hire them again in a heartbeat.

Thank you so much for making our day a home run!

This review will be so good you'll think Easy Entertaining wrote it themselves, but they didn't. My husband and I chose their company because they got good catering reviews and because their café in Providence seemed like such a perfect space for the ambience we wanted for our son's rehearsal dinner. It's casual but pretty, with a nice bar and a fun outdoor space. When we had our tasting there, we were convinced that it would work for us. Throughout the planning process, the staff supported us, met with us and let us make changes right up to a couple of weeks before the event. The day of, the food was excellent, the service friendly and professional and several times throughout the evening they provided special touches with us in mind. Our guests were very relaxed, loved the food and many complimented us on our choice of venue. We can't say enough nice things about the owner, the event coordinator and all the staff.

It didn't take long for us to realize that Easy Entertaining was the must-have caterer for our wedding. The menu at Easy is unique and their farm to fork approach with local, fresh ingredients is amazing. We reached out early in hopes that we would get to work with the team, and a visit on one of their Burger Nights sealed the deal for us. The Cafe is beautiful with a vintage, yet modern feel that we knew would be the perfect venue for our wedding reception.

And it's not just the awesome food at Easy Entertaining that won us over - they have such an amazing focus on their customer service! From answering our many (many!) questions, to allowing us to keep an eye on the budget and make changes based on their seasonal menus, we were confident going in to the day that they would host an awesome celebration and that our guests would have a great time.

The rainy day didn't hold back the party and the Team at Easy handled everything in stride - even making a few last minute changes to the floor plan to keep everything dry. We had a cocktail style reception and were a little concerned that we might miss out on all of the fantastic food, but they made sure the bride and groom were fed even while we were busy mingling with our guests. The staff has an amazing focus on customer service, taking great care of our guests, cleaning up, and making sure everything went smoothly. Our guests LOVED the food (especially the donut bar!) and raved about the cafe atmosphere. We had an such a memorable time at our wedding and can't thank Easy Entertaining enough for hosting such an amazing party!!

Easy Entertaining provided fantastic catering and event coordination for our wedding. I worked with Vanessa, who went above and beyond to help us plan and execute our cocktail style reception.

We had a wide selection to choose from, and especially enjoyed that they use locally sourced produce and provide a seasonal menu. Our wedding was in late October, so we had some wonderful cozy flavors like grilled cheese and tomato soup shooters, and a butternut squash and sweet potato salad.

Easy Entertaining also coordinated our rentals (table cloths, plates, cutlery, etc.). Given the cocktail style reception, we chose to go with biodegradable disposables, which helped us reduce costs. The way they set up the food stations was just darling! They used chalkboard signs with beautiful handwritten script, little brown paper bags for the chip bar, and covered the table with brown paper and wrote out the names of the toppings for the donut desert bar. The attention to detail was exquisite.

The staff at Easy Entertaining are top notch! Friendly, dedicated, passionate, and professional! Vanessa helped coordinate the day of our wedding, including set up of decorations, coordination of all food/drinks, and managing the timeline. The wait staff were so attentive throughout the day, making sure we were able to eat in addition to our guests (which meant bringing some of the appetites out to use while we were taking photos).

Easy Entertaining was recommended to me by a friend, and I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a wide variety of options, delicious seasonal locally sourced foods, innovative ideas, and an overall superb experience!

Kaitlyn Roberts, the owner, was a pleasure to work with on my daughter's wedding. The wedding dinner was outstanding, and her servers were all attentive and professional. She is very organized and thorough. I particularly liked the fact that she broke out her bill by rentals, each food item, and service so I knew exactly what I was purchasing and could make cost effective decisions and trade-offs. I would highly recommend Easy Entertaining for any event. I plan to use them in the future.
