Gourmet caterers provided amazing food for our wedding! Our guests are raving to this day, even months after. The portion sizes were large and the food was delicious. The day of was executed very well by Vicky and her team. Each item was just as hot or cold as it was supposed to be and they even set aside a small buffet of food for my husband and I when we had a moment alone after the ceremony. Aside from the food, my husband and I were a little bit disappointed in the service. As we neared our wedding date, Jeanne (our main contact), was not as responsive by email or phone. Because of this several payment deadlines were missed and there was some confusion with rental contracts. This is a company that books a lot of engagements so it was hard to connect when we had questions or updates. Overall, we are happy that we went with Gourmet, but for what we were paying would have loved a little more attention in the end!

I had my own attendant to get me food and drinks, which was so cool! My catering director was practically a wedding coordinator, so she went above and beyond when it came to the adjusting the timeline, venue set up, furniture rental, etc. I even saw one waiter pull some debris out of the pool (head of a flower, a fly), just to make the place look a little more perfect. They mopped up every spill on the dance floor - just phenomenal service all around.
By the way, the price is just an approximation.

We cannot say enough positive things about Gourmet Caterers, or Jeanne Spence as a wedding planner. Our family has worked with Gourmet Caterers personally and professionally for more than 20 years, so when my fiancé and I got engaged they were our first call. Given our past experiences with Gourmet, our expectations were extremely high -- and Gourmet significantly exceeded every one of these high expectations. Gourmet was the first and most important vendor we worked from start to finish.

Gourmet's catering service and experience was top notch. Our guests are still raving that the food at our wedding was the best they've every had. From the specialty cocktails to the passed appetizers to the dinner and dessert - every item was divine and every detail covered. Gourmet is the type of caterer that doesn't just deliver exceptional food (which they do), they pay attention to every detail that truly makes your wedding an exceptional experience for your guests from start to finish, from flow to service to professionalism.

Jeanne Spence is one of the best in the industry. She is so organized and professional - with so many contacts, connections in the industry to truly put on a best in class event. Our wedding had many logistical challenges - on Cape Cod at my parents home - and she coordinated, managed, and delivered on every aspect - including managing several all vendor site visits/meetings. She is an absolute pleasure to work with, both for me as the bride and for my entire family, and a joy to be with on my wedding day. She executed our vision while making it better as we moved through the planning process. Having Jeanne by my side made me (and my mom/entire family!) feel comfortable and confident throughout our year of planning and absolutely on our wedding day - and every detail was executed to a T. If you are a bride looking to plan and execute your perfect dream wedding - I recommend you run, not walk to Jeanne and Gourmet to have by your side.

Gourmet Caterers did our wedding at the amazing Artists for Humanity EpiCenter on February 7, 2015 between Boston blizzards. The catering manager was Jeanne Spence and she did a phenomenal job representing GC from start to finish. Jeanne and GC made me feel very at ease and in good hands throughout the entire process. The tasting and the food execution was delicious and everyone at the wedding reception raved about how much they loved the food and feasted on the stations. We did tapas, pasta and a custom taco bar. The presentation and quality of the food along with the servers and bartenders is top notch and I have nothing other than praise for Jeanne, the chefs and all the service staff who helped create the most memorable day of my life.

I also used Jeanne as our day of planner and it is money well spent. She's on the ball with every respect and does her job with expertise and grace. I think I would have been very stressed out if it weren't for her.

I would highly recommend Gourmet Caterers for any catering needs and if you get to work with Jeanne then you will have nothing to worry to about. She is attentive, detail-oriented, and a wonderful professional who knows how to orchestrate and coordinate your event.

The food at my wedding was so delicious and on point that my guests are still talking about it! By far the best decision we made by going with Gourmet Catering! Jeanne is amazing and accommodating, and 100% stands behind this company and for good reason-the quality and professionalism was beyond my expectations. Christine was my event coordinator the day of my wedding, and she was so sweet and funny and so helpful-I was very happy to have there! Overall, Jeanne and Christine put my mind at ease and worked with me to provide exactly what I wanted for my special day, from cookies and cider to a totally dynamic dinner buffet! Wonderful company, highly recommended, you will not be disappointed if you choose this company to cater your event!

We were not able to do a tasting previous to the wedding, but all fears were put to rest on the wedding day as every guest complimented and raved about the food. Gourmet went with the rather unique choices we had and they were thoroughly professional and friendly about it. Highly recommended to anyone looking for the perfect caterer.

Gourmet Caterers made our wedding a hit! Our guests raved about the food at our wedding! The planning process was fantastic, they have a lot of options to choose from on their suggested menus, but more importantly they were completely flexible and were willing to create anything we thought of. Their presentation was also to die for and really helped the already fantastic food look even more beautiful! My only complaint would be that I often had to email/call a few times before I got responses during the planning phase. However, once I did get a response I had their full attention, and the week before/week of the wedding they were extremely responsive and extremely on top of everything. You will not be disappointed if you work with Gourmet!

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.
