We give our highest recommendation for Tim McNamara and the entire La Cuisine Catering crew. Our New England November wedding was flawless thanks to the ongoing hard work and close attention to detail from Tim. Throughout our year engagement, Tim was professional and courteous. He was super responsive to emails, always getting back to us within a couple of hours. He kept us constantly in the loop, offering constructive suggestions throughout the planning period. He was promptly on time for all phone or in-person meetings. He welcomed a food tasting with not only ourselves, but both sets of parents, and really listened to all our nit picky feedback on the entrée selections, and our vision for appetizers, a raw bar, and a festive signature cocktail. In the days just prior to the wedding when stress was running high, Tim offered an ever-calm approach in accurately confirming details, accepting our updated seating plans and meal selection counts. On our wedding day, his staff handled our 160 guests flawlessly. There was a continuous flow of passed hor doeuvres. The wait staff was very responsive to the needs of our guests, yet they blended into the background and allowed everyone to just enjoy the evening. The table and venue décor was arranged beautifully. The raw bar was a highlight, with an impressive display! The entrees were passed in a timely and flawless manner, arriving hot, and the French-inspired cuisine was out of this world! Tim really listened to our requests to have Maryland style crab cakes, braised short ribs, and an eggplant pesto white bean vegetarian dish. The food was fresh, made with local ingredients, and had such a beautiful presentation that looked like something out of a fancy magazine! He catered to our gluten and dairy free guest needs as well. We never had an official wedding coordinator, but Tim fulfilled that role, beautifully orchestrating every step of the evening. We received so many compliments that the evening was just magical.

La Cuisine is truly an amazing catering company. I started speaking with Brendan and his team over 9 months before our wedding. Over the course of that 9 months, we slowly developed what would become the perfect menu to fit our perfect wedding. I want to emphasize slowly in a good way - I never felt overwhelmed or pressured when working with Brendan; he would submit a proposal with this thoughts and ideas and if I felt/thought something completely different, he would turn around and make my vision become a reality. Almost all of his ideas, however, were perfection. It was clear that he was listening to us throughout the entire process. Brendan and his team at La Cuisine truly cared about what we wanted. This even carried over to our wedding day - Brendan's team set up and executed the most perfect cocktail party! We wanted an uninterrupted afternoon for all of our guests to enjoy themselves so we nixed the sit down dinner for upscale finger foods that people could enjoy as they went. We started with passed hors d'oeuvres (tuna tar tar wonton crisps, bacon wrapped short rib, aranchini, and tomato/mozz skewers) and then shortly after opened 3 food stations (3 different slides w/ fries; 3 different flat breads and one with cheese, crackers, and fruit) for people to munch on all afternoon. Everything was so perfect, there was barely anything to clean up - our guests were talking about the food for weeks! This one-stop-show even created a wedding cake we would never forget. Going on only basic instruction from me, the bakers crafted an simple yet classic presentation cake of vanilla and chocolate layers with the most amazing whipped buttercream frosting I have ever had (chocolate buttercream on the inside and traditional buttercream on the outside)! La Cuisine is a very well rounded catering company that will make your wedding day one to remember. I highly recommend Brendan and his team at La Cuisine to any bride and groom that love food as much as my husband and I do!

We worked with Michael at La Cuisine to plan our wedding. We wanted a BBQ style wedding, and La Cuisine delivered. The BBQ was absolutely delicious, and Michael despite his Texan instincts, worked with us to make sure there were enough equally delicious veggies on the table! I'm a no nonsense New Yorker, and Michael is a calm cool and collected Texan. He was a fantastic support throughout the planning process and on our special day. As the day approached and some things were not always as planned (with other vendors) Michael was always there with a solution or sagely advice. I 100% recommend Michael and La Cuisine - and if you're into it, get the ribs!

For those who are interest, La Cuisine came recommended by a friend, and then I used Wedding Wire back up the recommendation.

We are so happy we decided to use La Cuisine for our wedding. Working with Tim was a breeze and we were ecstatic with the way everything turned out. We were given frequent updates on how things were coming along throughout the process, which really eased our minds during such a busy time. Not only did La Cuisine create a mouthwatering menu based on our ideas and preferences, but they also helped to plan and organize the day, including rentals and coordinating with the other vendors we worked with. Did I mention Tim is awesome?! He really listened to our ideas and helped to execute all of our “wish list” items, which really personalized our wedding. Our private tasting was informative, fun and super tasty! On the day of the wedding, we were floored by the professionalism and level of service that we and all our guests received. They went above and beyond. The food was delicious, creative and beautifully presented. They are passionate about their food and it shows. We had an outdoor wedding, which required cooking outdoors, and La Cuisine delivered a gourmet feast! Thank you to everyone at La Cuisine for making our day so perfect.

The whole team did a great job and coordinated with my wedding planner well. It was an unusual setting for a wedding- under a tent on a not so easy to access property (it was muddy because it was raining all week). However the whole team did a spectacular job- from Micheal (the event coordinator working for La Cuisine), to the chefs and service staff- the event went smoothly and the food was delicious and fresh! Guests were definitely impressed. Recommend!!!

Working with Betsey was nothing short of amazing. From the initial consultation and menu tasting to the big event, Betsey pulled out all the stops to ensure we'd be thrilled.

She listened to our ideas and vision of our wedding reception and planned the perfect series of events around it. The staff was attentive during the cocktail hour and dinner, and the venue was fully set up hours before the guests started to arrive.

We had to rent everything for the venue - from chairs for the ceremony to cocktail glasses, tablecloths and dessert plates for the reception, and Betsey organized everything.

She really handled the entire event from start to finish and we are so grateful to have worked with her. You don't need a wedding planner or day-of coordinator if you choose Betsey and La Cuisine as your catering company!

Betsey and the staff at La Cuisine were amazing! I recommend La Cuisine for anyone who wants a personalized, delicious, special menu. The food was exceptional, and the experience was positive from start to finish. Betsey worked with me to create the perfect menu, she is easy to contact, she answered all of my questions promptly, and she gave me several options on ways to cut costs. On the day of the wedding, you could tell she was working her butt off! She was incredible. She kept everything running smoothly and continuously checked in with me to make sure I was all set (at one point she made me my own plate of cocktail hour appetizers and brought them over to me, and she also checked in with my mom several times to make sure she was enjoying her food). She helped manage any snafus and offered solutions to any last minute issues (we had some severe wind and decided to move the ceremony off the lawn and Betsey managed the change in set up of the chairs). She also worked the time line of food service out with the DJ well. Overall, the food was great and the whole La Cuisine team was extremely professional. They were definitely my best vendor.
