Gourmet was a phenomenal vendor to work with! Jeanne was always available to help answer questions, give feedback and provide honest/transparent advice! Our food was delicious and EVERYONE who came to our wedding said it was the best wedding food they'd ever had!

I would recommend Gourmet in a heart beat for tremendous service, professionalism, quality, and value!!

INCREDIBLE!! We used Gourmet as the caterers for our wedding in September and am so so glad we did. Our venue had a list of about 15 caterers that we could choose from and we ended up narrowing it down to Gourmet and another caterer - a more well known name that had been recommended and I had already fallen in love with.. and was 90% sure we would use. But my fiance insisted that we do our due diligence before we chose. So when our parents were in town one weekend, we did tastings with both caterers - and I was pleasantly surprised when all 6 of us unanimously agreed that Gourmet's food was exponentially better (and this was before we told our parents that Gourmet was the cheaper of the two options)!
Susan was an absolute pleasure to work with and we had complete trust in her the entire time. She answered all of my emails (and there were a lot) quickly and thoroughly... which I learned is the best thing when it comes to a wedding vendor. And even had us come in for an amazing lunch a month or two before the wedding where we finalized the details and reassessed some of original choices. She customized the menu to our foodie taste that the food felt so personal.
On the day, our guests were RAVING about the food! We definitely have high standards when it comes to food - and it was beyond our expectations. Everyone says that the bride and groom don't actually eat at their wedding - but we definitely ate. My steak-loving husband even ordered an extra plate of the vegetarian option!
The night went so smoothly - if there were any hiccups, we never knew about it - and Susan timed everything that there was plenty of time for speeches and lots and lots of dancing. She accommodated last minute requests to add a seat and move a table and even made sure that the two of us had some alone time in a private room with champagne and snacks so we could soak it all in. I can't say enough incredible things about Susan and Gourmet Caterers and HIGHLY recommend them!

Don't let the exterior of their building fool you - this company is amazing. Our first wedding, and not knowing what to expect, Jeanne Spence took us by the hands and guided us through the process step by step. She was in touch with each of the vendors, knew most of them, and worked together to create a wonderful event.

The chef is extremely talented, the food delicious, and the presentation extraordinary. During the tasting process, they welcomed comments, made adjustments, and the corrections were just what we had hoped. If they had strong opinions regarding our selections, they were voiced, but not forced. They know what they are talking about and were eager to work with us to create an event for us not for them. I won't hesitate to contact them again for an event big or small. Truly professional and easy to work with.

Jeanne and Amy, thanks a million.

Words are seriously not enough to express how wonderful and amazing Gourmet Caterers were! We hired them to cater for our wedding in July, and I have to say BEST DECISION EVER!!! Jeanne was fabulous. She has so much experience in the business and was able to help me plan every aspect of the wedding. We had a delicious tasting with them, and I knew the food was going to be wonderful at our wedding. She responded to us in a very timely fashion and was just excellent in every way possible. She was there till the end of the wedding when we all got on the bus and left. Her staff was amazing and wonderful, the bartenders were great and our personal waitress Lisa was FABULOUS!!!! Seriously we loved Lisa! So nice, and attentive! I didn't have to to go the bar at all because she was so attentive to us. As for Jeanne, its best captured by what my mom said "Jeanne was a genie! She just had a magical way of making things happen". I absolutely loved everyone from Gourmet and wish I could hire them to cater all the important events of my life!!!

Wow! I cannot say enough GREAT things about Gourmet Caterers, but more specifically Jeanne Spence. She is amazing. Once we had our tasting, we had no doubt that every aspect of the culinary side of things would be flawless (and it was!) - But, it was the meeting, and continued correspondence with Jeanne that let us know that everything was not only going to be good, it was going to be amazing. She stands behind an amazing product (did I mention the food was delicious?), and has been in the business long enough to know every trick, detail, and aspect of a great wedding. She knows her stuff, and knows exactly what to do to make the entire wedding planning process as stress free for brides as possible. I was always able to get in touch with her, and always got a timely response to emails, phone calls etc... In addition to the planning leading up to the wedding - the staff that Jeanne and Gourmet provided for our wedding was incredible. They were so professional, unobtrusive, helpful, and friendly. We were just so pleased with the way everything went on our wedding day! To be honest, I am really not sure I would have been able to pull it off without Jeanne and Gourmet. I am forever grateful! Choosing Gourmet is a no-brainer, and being able to work with Jeanne and her team is the icing on the yummy cake!

First, the food at Gourmet Caterers is delicious. They were very gracious and worked very hard to work within our low budget (the venue forced us into a list of very upscale caterers, that we did not want or could afford). They were, however, not good at getting back to us, and we had to correct several things along the way (small mistakes were always showing up on the menu/estimate). But they were always very nice, and, I really wish I could eat the food when I wasn't trying to socialize with guests!

The food at our wedding was flat out amazing. People are still talking about how good everything was. The presentation of the appetizers and meals were first class and it tasted first class as well. I had appetizers that I have never had before, like baby lamb on a bone, and it was to die for. SO AMAZING! Thank you

From the first email we received from Susan Davis at Gourmet Caterers, we knew we wanted them to cater our wedding. She took the time to send a personal response when most other companies sent a generic automatic reply. From that initial email right up thru the wedding day, Susan couldn't have been more helpful! She helped us plan an amazing menu! I cannot even begin to describe how delicious everything was. She wowed us at the tasting, but it didn't even compare to how everything turned out on our wedding day. Our guests absolutely raved about the food! They could not get over all of the passed appetizers! They just kept on coming.

The thing I loved most about this company is that Susan was with us all the way. She was there on our wedding day making sure that everything was perfect. She worked so well with our venue (The Milton Hoosic Club) and the club manager there. I knew that we were in good hands. I really cannot say enough good things about Gourmet Caterers. Susan really was the best!

The food is delicious!

The chefs were incredibly flexible with mixing and matching plates to make exactly what we envisioned.

Come the day of the wedding, after the ceremony we immediately had a server by our side getting us anything we needed. The staff was phenomenally organized and well equipped. I didn't even notice them as they swept through the room and in no time had the plates cleared, the dessert out, etc.

They really made the night amazing.

Gourmet was so on top of things, there wasn't any room for me to worry if anything was left out. Our ceremony was supposed to be outdoors, but since it was going to rain, they decided to hold it indoors at the venue. The transition between changing the main room from a ceremony set up to round, set tables was so seamless, I didn't even realize it had happened. There were a few times during the wedding when I saw the coordinator discussing issues with staff, but I felt so confident that they would take care of things that I walked away happily.

The food was phenomenal as well. We did passed appetizers and food stations, and I wish people would have left me alone so I could eat to my heart's content! The food was better than many expensive restaurants I've been to. We were event sent off at the end of the day with a little plate of cookies.

At first it was hard to get immediate responses to my worried questions via email, but I realize now that there was no need. Gourmet really had a great handle on things, knowing what furniture the venue already had, therefore minimizing extra rentals, what linen company to use, the best silverware, everything. They decorated the station tables beautifully and tastefully as well, eliminating the need to order more floral arrangements. They really understand budgets, and know the best places to splurge and where it's ok to cut back.

You're in good hands if you choose Gourmet.

The food was good but I had two issues. The first one is that I provided them with the recipe for my favorite cupcakes and they made them horribly. I was truly let down and if they had warned me ahead of time that this was an area that they wouldn't be able to deliver in, I never would have made the special request. My second issue was that the bar tenders were fired towards the end of the night for bad behavior and they had to close the bars down early. Once the bars were closed, the night was sadly over.

All I can say is WOW!!! Due to circumstances beyond our control, our original wedding location filed bankruptcy, locked the doors, and kept our money, one week before our wedding day!! Bob Wiggins, the owner of Gourmet Caterers, heard the horrible news, and wanted to help. This wonderful man DONATED his catering services for my newly located backyard wedding. What a heart!!! If your reading this, you may be looking to hire a caterer. Rest assured, that you've found one owned by a man with compassion. It's so nice to know that there are still good people out there! And the food you ask??? That almost can go unsaid...I've been told over and over by my guests, that is was the best food they've ever had at any event. Even myself, as the bride, ate my ENTIRE meal. What bride even eats at all that day?! Gourmet Caterers even ordered a fish plate that I requested , that wasn't even on the menu. I can go on and on about this company. They are the real deal! : )

Gourmet Caterers did a fabulous job with our wedding!! They were a pleasure to work with, from our very first meeting, our tasting, and subsequent meetings before the event, they were exceptional. Most importantly, the care and attention they put into our wedding was unbelievable. They made sure every detail was absolutely perfect.
The food was all delicious!! We decided to have food stations, rather than the typical plated dinner, and Gourmet Caterers came up with some wonderful ideas of what to serve. Each station was put together so well and the food was great! We continue to get compliments from our guests about how good the food was.
We are so pleased with everything Gourmet Caterers did for our event, and I would highly recommend them.
