We had a lovely early fall wedding at Easy Entertaining. Everything was held at the cafe and its courtyard. It was the perfect venue for a ceremony and party that we wanted to be fun, pretty, and low-stress. The EE crew was great to work with: flexible, gracious, and full of good suggestions for making the day go smoothly. At our wedding, the food was delicious and the event staff took wonderful care of us and our guests. Many, many thumbs up for them!

Easy Entertaining created an amazing spread for our guests!! My wife and I had a very small wedding with passed Hors d'oeuvres. Our budget was tight and Easy Entertaining was the only caterer that we contacted that suggested a cocktail/appetizer meal as apposed to a seated service.
What an amazing spread they created for us!! Every one of our guests raved about the food for days after the event. Devorah was great to work with. She worked with the venue layout, created floor plans for where our different stations would be set up, and made sure that no detail was overlooked. Chef Ashley created fantastic dishes. The cheese table was absolutely beautiful. Every guest raved about it. The pasta station was perfect and the passed Hors d'oeuvres were delicious and never ending. All ingredients are locally produced and extremely fresh.
I feel that the food offered to your guests is your "thank you" to them and should be top notch.

The Girls at Easy Entertaining were absolutely amazing! They were able to customize our menu with inventive, delicious food and everyone kept on commenting about how great everything tasted all night. They were very flexible and went out of their way to meet with our vendors, have multiple food tastings, and even helped hold some items for us post wedding. In closing, they are both beautiful, sweet girls with unmatched professionalism - choosing their business made wedding planning so much easier.:)

Easy Entertaining Inc. provided us with the most amazing wedding. As a couple who loves food, we truly wanted a unique and exciting cuisine experience for us and for our guests...Easy Entertaining more than delivered by creating a personalized menu. Our guests are still commenting on the quality and freshness of the food served at the wedding. Erika Lucas organized, set up and facilitated an elegant at home wedding with such detail and special touches. The staff ensured that our day went off without a hitch and our guests experienced superb service. We highly recommend Easy Entertaining Inc. for any function and are looking forward to using them for other functions in the near future.

Food was very important to my fiance and I. We're members of our local CSA, frequent the farmer's market, and spend date nights concocting elaborate homemade recipes. Needless to say, I was skeptical about the wedding catering. Most of the places we looked at were overpriced and served the same hot-plate lunch fare reminiscent of cafeteria food.

We discovered Easy Entertaining, Inc. through the RI Farmer's market website. We were so impressed that they source most of their ingredients locally! Erica was very attentive in helping us choose a menu (we had lots of restrictions based on guests diets and the fact that we were married in an historic building that doesn't allow any burners or food warmers). We were also connected to their preferred bartenders for our wine/ beer bar. We went in for a tasting and were hooked!

We had a beautiful stationary appetizer (The Locavore) with homemade mustards, chutney, RI & CT cheeses, and seasonal items, artisan breads and a variety of grilled flatbreads with seasonal toppings. And passed appetizers of Lemon Zest Lobster Salad Spoons, Italiano Skewers, Gorgonzola Crostini with roast beef, Grilled pineapple with prosciutto and mint, and Narragansett Creamery Salty Sea Feta & Olives Skewers.

Our guests were RAVING about the food! I had never heard the words "wedding," "catering," and "AMAZING" before our event. Even with our afternoon wedding (without a sit-down meal), our guests were satisfied and completely blown away by the selection. My friends are still talking about it. Easy Entertaining, Inc. made the day an absolute success with their beautiful displays, friendly and knowledgeable waitstaff, and fantastic product. I would recommend them for both those who believe in organic and local food sources, and those who just love great food! We received the royal treatment with the best food selections for our very modest budget--thank you Easy Entertaining Inc.!

I don't even know where to begin! Easy Entertaining was hands down one of the best decisions I made about this wedding.

I first knew about Easy Entertaining from my friends bridal shower- they catered it. The food was absolutely delicious and it stuck with me. I was worried about their price, so I didn't jump to them and I decided to look around first. After talking with multiple other caterers and not finding exactly what I was looking for, I decided to call Easy Entertaining to talk about what I wanted and set up a tasting. First, price should have never stopped me because they are extremely competitive with other higher end caterers, and their food was so good and we decided on the spot that they were who we wanted to go with.

The best part is Easy Entertaining is a farm-to-table caterer. Within a 250 mile radius all of the food is grown, and they could tell you exactly where the chicken or scallops are coming from. This was extremely important to me, and I am so glad we found them.

The day of the wedding was awesome. The food was absolutely fantastic- Kait (the head chef) made sure that I was eating and even fixed a plate for me after she saw me running around.

I have heard glowing reviews about the food from our guests- someone said it was the most delicious meal they had ever ate at a wedding!!

I am going to choose Easy Entertaining for any upcoming events that I would need catering for- I am 1000% happy with their services. :)

Easy Entertaining did an amazing job with our wedding, we couldn't have been happier with their service. Katie and Erica worked with us throughout the whole process and were mindful of what we wanted, but also brought their own creativity and expertise to the event! I don't know how we would have planned our wedding without them. I never worried about a thing...Easy Entertaining was always very responsive and professional, and it seemed as though there was nothing they couldn't do! The day of the event, I was blown away by the setup and coordination on the part of Easy Entertaining. I had some last minute instructions that I knew I could trust Erica to take care of. The staff were all professional looking and did a flawless job serving and clearing. We still have people telling us how great the food was. All in all, Easy Entertaining made our dream wedding a reality!
