I can't speak highly enough about Jonathan (the owner and chef) and Michelle (the event planner). First of all, the food was all amazing - the statler chicken breast with potato cake and green beans was delicious (some of our guests said it was the best wedding food they have ever had). Michelle was incredibly organized and responded to my calls/emails right away. After my sight visit with them, I felt at ease. She emailed me a very organized detailed schedule of the day and where everything should go right after our meeting. When I arrived, everything was set up beautifully, 1 of the servers stayed near me to make sure I was able to have my fill of apps, and they made sure my husband and I always had a drink in hand. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for fantastic food, very reasonable pricing (the were willing to make something that fit our budget), and wonderful event planning! It was an added bonus that Jonathan and Michelle are some of the nicest people we have met as well!

I highly highly recommend Lavishly Dunn to any New England bridge looking for a personally-tailored menu, delicious food, and a creative-responsive-professional staff! Jonathan took the time to respond to every email and phone call personally and made sure I felt like his number one priority. He tailored his services to fit our on-a-budget-cocktail-style reception and our unique New England meets New Orleans requests (no one in New England makes a better New Orleans Shrimp Po Boy than Jonathan's team!) On top of delicious food (that we actually got to eat because Jonathan made sure one waiter was dedicated just to us during cocktail hour), Lavishly Dunn can literally do all parts of your wedding if you wanted - they have so many contacts and know the area/venues well, so they can do anything! All our guests are still telling us how much they loved the food (and even the presentation of the food!) Thanks for making our wedding delicious!!!

From the preliminary tasting at my parents' house to the end of the night of our wedding, Jessica, Jonathan and the Lavishly Dunn team were professional, flexible and ready to handle anything that came their way - not to mention excellent chefs! The food was DELICIOUS -- I have been receiving rave reviews from guests who could not get over how perfectly cooked the beef was! (I just wish I could have eaten more myself!) Jessica even packed a little bag with extra hors d'oeuvres for my husband and me to take with us at the end of the night. Jessica stayed until midnight to make sure everything was squared away, and oversaw the entire wedding, ensuring that it ran smoothly from start to finish. One example: we had 2 wedding "crashers" arrive during cocktail hour who had originally replied 'no' but Jessica quickly found a table for them without causing a stir. She also made sure the bartenders created our "specialty drinks" just right, checked that the band played our song at the right time, helped get our overnight bags into the getaway car, etc. -- she really took care of everything!

First off ... the food was delicious. My only complaint about Lavishly Dunn is that we got almost no leftovers from our stations and the food was so good that we really, really wanted leftovers to take home! When I told them after the event that this was my only complaint, the chef actually put together a batch of some of the food we'd had at the event for us. It wasn't as good as what we had at the event, unfortunately, but what they did on the day was the important part. Our guests have repeatedly told us that they loved the food, and that everything was delicious.

From the very beginning, they were focused on us, our event and what we wanted. They provided a private tasting, using our menu - something no other caterer offered us. When we were told that they never had a tasting when they didn't make a sale, I didn't believe them, until we went for our tasting. Yum. They sent us home from that with a huge bag of leftovers, and they didn't last 24 hours. At the event the staff followed the bridal party around and made sure they offered us plenty of appetizers and kept asking if we needed them to bring us anything else. They even were willing to make us a groom's cake made entirely of meat and mashed potatoes. It started as a joke, but ended up as very tasty meatloaf that several people commented on. Their prices were very reasonable in comparison to others in the area as well, so, all in, a very very good choice.

We hired Lavishly Dunn for our wedding and day-of coordination this summer. My mom had seen them on a local news segment and promptly scheduled a tasting for them to cater our backyard wedding. They were able to work with our budget and alter some things to get the cost down to the amount we were able to pay by substituting certain dishes, and none of the quality or flavors suffered! We also hired them for coordination services, so that day-of we could have someone directing the activities. While we started off with one coordinator, she left and we were paired with another. Most everything went according to plan but there were a couple things missing upon arrival of the cocktail hour. After gentle reminders from my mother-in-law, the missing items were located and placed accordingly.

Our details were very complicated and LD was able to work with our requests. I would recommend them for future events!

Lavishly dunn's food is fantastic! Why is that not a category for rating? The price is reasonable for the quality. It is a small business, though, so be prepared for several days to respond to your questions that is until the week of the wedding then they are very receptive. I would recommend them.
