We signed a contract w/Martha's about 10 months prior to our wedding. We had a few small issues with them throughout the planning process. Basically just some minor requests that were responded with a simple no. Not a huge deal, but they were never willing to make any compromise or suggest any sort of solution. Contract was signed and deposit paid, so we just moved forward. As our big day was approaching, we asked for 2 vegan plates due to 2 guests who are vegan by medical necessity. We told them we would pay whatever the cost but they refused to work with us. After talking to the manager, Kenna, things only got worse. She berated me, minimized the amount of money we were spending and asked why I chose Martha's in the first place. I then wondered the same thing. After our conversation, I asked to speak w/the owner, several times. I never did receive a call from the owner but did receive an email from Kenna 82 days before my wedding stating that they were cancelling my contract. I had to scramble to find a new caterer less than 90 days before my big day. Their lack of flexibility, professionalism, and appreciation for business was absolutely shocking.

The wedding venue my husband and I selected offered several catering options, which we had to choose from. We set up a tasting with two different caterers, one of which was Martha’s Vineyard. Martha’s Vineyard allowed us to choose several different appetizer, vegetable, potato and entree options. The tasting was great and so much fun. You sit in a very nice, private room and are served by the chef who prepared the food. Our contact person and the chef were on hand for questions and were very knowledgeable. The food and presentation for the tasting was superb!

We opted to use Martha’s Vineyard as both the caterer and alcohol supplier (our venue required the latter) for our wedding and we were not disappointed. Throughout the process, our contact person, Erin, was responsive, knowledgeable and helpful. We are from Chicago but got married in Grand Rapids, so the majority of our communication was via email. Erin consistently responded within 24 hours or sooner to help us with any questions or needs. When we needed to add tables that Martha’s Vineyard did not have, she arranged the rental and delivery with another company The day of the wedding, everything was seamless in both the food and alcohol departments. We had a plated dinner and selected a beef, a chicken and a vegetarian dish. We received numerous compliments from our guests regarding the taste and quality of the food. The service was professional and timely as well. We would definitely use Martha’s Vineyard again for any catering needs and would recommend them highly.

We couldn't have picked a better caterer for our wedding! Everything was absolutely amazing! The staff was so attentive and the food was to die for. We choose a filet and chicken dish, and both of them were wonderful. The steak was cooked to perfection. I got so many compliments all night from guests on how great the food was! We were so happy with the quality of the food and the staff, and we are so glad we choose them for our special day!

Martha's was wonderful. We worked with Meghan and she was great at keeping in touch and was quick to respond to any questions I had. There was a small mix-up with our linens, but Martha's worked with us to correct it. The food for our wedding of 200 people was delicious! We got tons of compliments on the hors d'ouvres, plated dinner, and late night snack of pizza. The boursin and walnut stuffed chicken breast was amazing!

Martha's was extremely easy to work with and I highly recommend them. The food was delicious, dispalyed and served attractively and efficiently. We had passed hot and cold appetizers, and a sit down dinner. Our guests raved about all of it --especially the bason wrapped shrimp. Sice we offerd 3 choices of entres to our guests, I was a little worried how the service would go -- it was terrific. The wait staff was helpful, quick, and food was served hot! I highly recommend Martha's. (As a side note, we ordered some trail mix bars for the hotel welcome bags...they were packaged individually and our only regret is that we did not order extras to bring back home.

Martha's Catering (the catering arm of the Heritage Hill market, Martha's Vineyard) is an excellent choice. My guests all commented on how tasty the food was. I loved that they had the option for family-style service; everyone was served very quickly, and people got to choose their own portion size. This eliminated both the wait times for a buffet, and the need for assigned seating that a plated dinner requires (no placecards, or worrying about who to sit with whom!) I also loved how open Martha's was to working with us to create a vegetarian/pescatarian based meal. They have good vegan options, too -- and told us that if we didn't see anything that would work, to just bring in our favourite recipe and their chef would make it.

Oh, and all their baked goods come from the next-door Nantucket Bakery.

My husband and I couldn't have been more pleased with Martha's Catering. We used them for both food and beverage and it was amazing! The food was fantastic and we had so many compliments on how delicious everything was. I was more than impressed with how great of a job Katie did throughout the planning process. She was very responsive, professional, and was more than willing to modify things if needed. Her and the staff were unbelievable the night of the actual reception. Katie checked with my husband and I and our family multiple times to see if we needed anything. I was extremely impressed working with her. The staff also did a wonderful job. They were very efficient with clearing off plates, napkins, etc. and also did a great job asking if we needed anything. Part of the reason our day was so perfect was because Martha's Catering made it stress free so we could truly enjoy the day!

Nothing but raves reviews here. Food was delish and we loved loved loved working with Kate. I really had no idea what I wanted at our first meeting and really wanted someone to "take charge". Kate got right into it and after asking a lot of questions, came up with exactly what we needed. Our guests were very complimentary and I wish I had sat down and enjoyed the food as much as they had. Brides, make time to eat!

We had a reception for 180 withing a historic but somewhat tight area which required table service. We couldn't have been more pleased. The food was exceptional commented on by all. The appetizers filled the gap from wedding to reception. We found the advance service, friendliness excellent. Pricing was competitive with comparable services and the way they calculate the bar tab at the end was actually less than others.
