We recently had our wedding catered through Gourmet Galley. We worked with Marissa from the beginning. At first, she was super attentive and was the main reason we chose to work with them. After we signed the contract, she tended to need a little encouragement to respond. It was a little frustrating at times, but I'm sure she was very busy.

It's hard to judge the "value" we got without having planned a wedding meal before. We spent $60/person for food, $20 for alcohol (beer, wine + signiature drink), $20 for rentals, plus the service charges and all that for 130 people. We used a friend for dessert and also had an ice cream truck, so those costs were not included. The appetizers were delicious and plentiful. We even had a girl named Jackie who was really sweet that came around to us personally to make sure that we got to try everything. That was awesome! The buffet itself was good, although the display was a bit underwhelming. They arranged eveything on 2 tables when everything could have fit on 1, so it looked a little stingy. Everyone had enough food and people went back for seconds, too.

As for their help on the big day, they were awesome! I had asked people to help set up certain things, and their workers came in and took over so that everyone could relax. The tables looked great, they set up the escort cards, table numbers and even the mantles.

All in all, I'd definitely work with them again. I would be a bit less shy of asking for what I want and be a little more on top of Marissa since I'm sure it's easy to get lost in the mix. But overall, everyone was happy and full!

Oh my goodness, Gourmet Galley was absolutely outstanding! Everything from the incredible food (our guests are STILL talking about it) to the attentive staff and our amazing coordinator, Keri, helped to make our wedding day truly perfect. The extensive catering options and flexibility made it incredibly easy to choose a menu that suited our tastes, and have I mentioned the delicious food?? I can't tell you how many people have told us that it was the best they'd ever had at a wedding. We are so impressed and would highly recommend them!

Oh my goodness. Such deliciousness! People told us it was the best wedding food they'd ever had, and some said it was just the best food they'd ever had anywhere! Marissa was great to work with and we are so happy with how everything turned out!

We were very happy with our decision to use Gourmet Galley! The staff was very professional and friendly and the food was delicious - definitely a step above your average wedding food fare. Their coordination assistance was pretty much invaluable - we held our wedding at a non-traditional venue and the Gourmet Galley team worked seamlessly with the on-site staff to coordinate a lot of tiny details to make sure we had everything we needed and helped us map out a reasonable timeline for the evening. They also had great recommendations for other local vendors and they worked with our booked vendors to make sure everyone was on the same page about our wedding. The personal tasting was also such a fun, relaxing experience! They worked with us to help tailor the menu to fit our budget and also allowed us to make small menu changes that were personal to us.

We also had one unexpected guest the day of the wedding and they worked that out seamlessly without ever bugging me about it!

We loved working with Gourmet Galley!! They catered our wedding at the CT River Museum and the food was amazing! We initially sent them a list of food/types of food that we liked and told them we wanted to do fun, non-traditional appetizers for cocktail hour and a family style menu for the meal. They proposed an awesome menu that was exactly our style. The food turned out great and we got so many compliments on it. Our day of coordinator, Jen, was really easy to work with and she knew exactly what she was doing, so I never had to worry about anything. The whole process was really easy from start to finish. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for a caterer!

Gourmet Galley Catering was wonderful! They helped us to prepare a fantastic seasonal and personal menu - and the food they made was delicious! People raved about the food! They made this one hors d'oeuvre that every one went nuts for - devils on horseback (ask about it you wont be sorry - melt in your mouth). They are extremely professional and in control. They are like event planners in their own right aside from the catering - they helped our wedding run super smooth. I would recomment them to anyone!

We are SO glad that we had Gourmet Galley cater our wedding! We chose GG because of the quality and creativity of their food and because their team was responsive and helpful right off the bat. We were not disappointed. The food was awesome from start to finish and the bartenders did a great job with our signature cocktails. And most importantly, Jen was wonderful to work with. She provided helpful suggestions and guidance throughout the process and was everywhere we needed her to be on the day of the wedding. She even stepped in and decorated our cake when the signals got crossed between the cake company and the florist! Everything turned out beautifully, in large part thanks Jen's organization and attention to detail. I highly recommend GG for weddings or other large events!

The staff of Gourmet Galley - waiters, bartenders, cooks, etc. - exceeded our expectations at our wedding. We received many compliments from guests on the food and service given. Our only complaint was regarding the responsiveness and flexibility of whom we dealt with in planning the event. Contracts weren't to us even after deposits were due and we felt as though stories changed from time to time. Overall, our event went off without any problems.

We were extremely pleased with Gourmet Galley. They worked with us to find the perfect menu within our budget, and everything was delicious. Our guests commented on how great their meals were, and still comment almost a year later!
The process of creating our menu and catering plan was easy and fun. Emily worked with us and gave us so many great ideas. Her energy and enthusiasm are contagious! We would have loved to have her with us on our wedding day. Our coordinator, Jen, was awesome as well, but had a very different energy than Emily.
Our wedding day was dreary and rainy, and while we stuck it out for our outdoor ceremony, Jen and her team acted quickly to rearrange and bring the cocktail hour from the patio to the indoor area...and this was all done during the ceremony with no disruptions and no stress for the bride or groom!
The scallops were incredible, and every little detail was perfect and just what we wanted. The bartenders took excellent care of the bridal party, making sure we all stayed hydrated for our night of dancing!
Jen, Emily, and the entire Gourmey Galley team were very responsive and helpful, and really did not give off the impression that they had hundreds of other events on their plates...I always felt like the priority, which was really amazing...even though I was absolutely one of many many stressed out brides that they were working with.
Highly recommended...amazing caterer!
