I can't thank Laura and the staff enough for the service and the delicious food they provided. The guests could not stop raving how delicious the food was and how beautiful everything looked from the canopy, tables, buffet tables, service, etc. Laura always responded in a timely manner, if not immediately and always put me at ease. If one is throwing an event and wants an excellent full service catering, then hire Melrose Catering. I will definitely hire them again! Melrose Catering made our wedding day a special day.

I highly recommend Melrose Catering for the food, service and professionalism. Laura worked with me as the caterer and day-of coordinator. I my opinion she communicate well, was very accommodating, patient and friendly. Her staff was very pleasant, helpful and hardworking. My guests made many compliments about the staff, Laura the coordinator, and the bartender Paul. It was generally felt that the whole event went smoothly. As the main attraction with my groom it felt like complete chaos at the time but EVERYTHING that was important to me happened as I wanted it to and some things turned out even better than I had planned.

Laura and the entire staff at Melrose Catering are fantastic. We had Melrose handle food and rentals and couldn’t be happier with the results. They took the worry from us and allowed us to enjoy the special day. The entire process from first contact to wedding clean-up was done with the upmost professionalism. Thank You!

Melrose Catering exceeded all expectations, they are true professionals. With so much to worry about on the wedding day, Laura and her fabulous Chef and staff allowed us to relax and not think about the catering or set-up. We also had Laura act as our on-day coordinator which was a fantastic decision. We received tons of compliments on the food and service and couldn’t be happier with our choice. Thank you for making the day wonderful.

I worked with Laura from Melrose Catering for our wedding and had a great experience! Guests praised the food and though I didn't get to eat much, the sampling I had was delicious. We expected we wouldn't get to eat that day, so I'm glad we had the tasting! Laura was also kind enough to pack appetizers for us to take home, so we got to dine on the goodies for a few days after the wedding.

We wanted an all-appetizer event, with a relaxed and informal atmosphere, where guests could graze on a variety of nibbles throughout the night. Laura worked with us to create the event we wanted, instead of pushing us toward a standard buffet or formal sit-down set-up. The appetizer stations were a big hit and people enjoyed being able to get whatever they wanted, whenever they wanted. It really added to the fun vibe of the day, and I'm so happy we did it.

We'd looked at other catering companies and Melrose was the clear winner. Their prices are great, their options are varied and their staff was on the ball at the event. The Melrose team was bussing, serving and even moved tables for us during the event, which was super nice. Most importantly, they listened to what WE wanted and executed it well.

They are truly wonderful! Laura is the one who organizes everything and she's very sweet and a pleasure to talk to. She's very helpful and even offered some suggestions on how to cut costs. She was very responsive to all our questions/requests, gave us suggestions on where to cut costs, and even let us bring in our own dessert and alcohol (saved tons of money and not a lot of caterers will let you do that).

The day of the wedding she was very helpful, her staff was WONDERFUL, very polite and well dressed. They did an incredible job. They also did a great job of cleaning everything up so we got our full refund back.

Best of all, our guests LOVED the food, it was delicious!!! We got the salmon and the chicken, and everyone kept telling us how great it was :)

Melrose is a hidden gem. When I first looked into my venue they had an "exclusive" caterer which basically meant that you had to go with that company and they could pretty much charge whatever they wanted because your business was guaranteed. Not good. I really wanted that venue so I changed my wedding date to a weekday to avoid the "exclusive" caterer and their absolutely OUTRAGEOUS cost. Then I found Melrose. It is run by a husband and wife team (she runs the business aspect, he's the chef) who are wonderful to work with. You feel as if you are dealing with a small company in their helpful attitude and warmth but have all the perks of a larger catering company. The food was FANTASTIC and there was a lot of choice. The rental package included with the food was affordable and right on-trend; not a lot of extra charges for different styles etc. We really felt so confident with this company that I even had Laura (the wife half of the team) coordinate as well and she is great. Overall everything ran smoothly, we got so many compliments on the food, and their prices really can't be beat.

We absolutely loved using Melrose Catering for our wedding reception. The food was amazing, and everyone loved it. For receptions, the typical "wedding food" is not really flavorful or all the great, but they did a great job. I definitely recommend the Taco Bar! The servers were nice and friendly which made a big difference.

Melrose did a great job at our wedding. The chef is wonderful and the food was just as delicious at the wedding as it was at the tasting! Laura and her staff are a pleasure to work with. She accommodated all of my specific requests and always got back to me right away. I would definitely recommend Melrose to others.
