Sue Zahner, her husband John, their kids and the staff that works for them are amazing. It’s a rare thing when you meet someone who has so much heart and passion for what they do. And if you get the chance to work with them, then you will see they take the catering business serious and make your event their personal priority that it is nothing short of perfect. It is because of their passion for their jobs that they are able to bring this level of professionalism, high quality service and amazingly delicious food to the guests at your event.

As soon as my husband and I met Sue, we clicked with her right away. She has a warm personality and a spirit that lights up the room. She loves nothing more than to see you happy! Trust me, you couldn’t leave a meeting with Sue without taking a goody bag of treats or enjoying one of their fabulous tastings to the point of feeling stuffed to the brim. She worked with us on the many menu details from appetizers, meal choices and even worked in some of our own personal touches with family recipes! Not only are they amazing at delivering on delicious food, they are adventurous and willing to give you the reigns to customize your menu for your event to reflect your personal preferences and desires. We loved this, and we were able to reflect some awesome pieces of ourselves into our wedding menu!

Along with the Zahner family, they have an awesome lady working with them who coordinates, answers emails and any questions as you go – Eileen. She was extremely helpful and accommodating with any of the questions or needs we had along the way.

Truly, because of their passion, thoughtfulness, and love for their jobs, they made the wedding planning process easy. Never once did I have to worry about the food being served at our wedding. We knew we hired the right team for the job. I only wish we could have a wedding every year just so we could enjoy some of their fabulous food and the atmosphere they create!

Sue, Eileen, and the rest of the Tastings team is wonderful. Weeks after our wedding, our guests are still talking about how amazingly delicious the food was. We loved that Tastings is so flexible - they really listen and make the menu fit your vision - and your budget! Not only did they come in a few thousand under other caterers we got quotes from, but they go above and beyond with free 'extras' that other places normally charge for (different cake flavors, decor, etc.) --- they even let us borrow tons of lawn games that were a hit with our guests!! Eileen managed the event - totally calm, cool, and collected. Sue was there too - she's incredibly charming and sweet - you can tell she loves what she does and really cares about her customers.

After visiting several different caterers for our venue at Tower Hill Botanic Garden; once we arrived and met with Sue we immediately felt "this is the one"! Sue is so personable, and you can genuinely tell she loves weddings and she loves food! It was also kind of ironic that our wedding day was the same one as her and her husband John, whom is the Chef. Tastings is a family owned company, her son and daughter also help out and do a great job.

What we also loved about Tastings is that they are reasonably priced and willing to do anything to work within your budget. They are also accommodating when it comes to night-time meetings and letting you go to several tastings throughout the year to get a feel for what you want and like on your menu. I think this was one of the greatest benefits other than the fact their tastings are set up like a real event so you can get a feel for what your wedding will look like. From this too, we were able to select the most delicious food and were please to say we had four options for our guests. My husband, myself, and all my guests were raving about the taste of the food and how great everything came out. Their salmon is so fresh and tasty, and this is coming from a girl who rarely eats fish! We were also able to submit them our own chicken recipe, which came out moist and as we expected. We can't say enough about the taste of the food and the quality of service.

You cannot go wrong choosing Tastings. They will go above and beyond to make your day the best it can. Just FYI they only take checks!

I cannot say enough great things about Tastings! We met with Sue multiple times before our wedding and she was fun and easy to work with. Their food is amazing! They catered our wedding and my guests can't stop talking about the teriyaki flank steak, baked haddock, bourbon popcorn and the mint chocolate mousse wedding cake. One of my guests said the wedding cake was the best cake they've ever had at a wedding! Tastings does more than cater the food. They also set up all the tables and decorations and do it all with a smile on their face. They were excellent to work with! We were able to use some of their supplies for free which helped save on cost a lot. They did not nickel and dime us like other places would have. I highly recommend Tastings to cater any event. They are fun, professional and the food is amazing!!!!!

Tastings is AMAZING! At first, we just wanted to go with them because they were the least expensive of the pre-selected caterers at our venue. Then we went to a group tasting with them and were just blown away! We are foodies, and this really hit the spot.

Also, I am gluten intolerant, and it was no problem for Sue and the team to whip up an entire gluten free wedding, including an incredible flourless chocolate cake for dessert!! Plus, Sue and everyone else working are really warm and friendly, more than willing to work with you on budget, and just really put us at ease as we were planning. Definitely recommend to anyone having their wedding at tower hill, or any other venue in the area!

Sue and her team at Tastings Catering is truly amazing! They made sure every detail of our wedding was perfect! From the first day we met Sue she listened to our "wish list" and made great suggestions for the menu! The staff was always responsive by email, phone, and several in person meetings during the planning stage. The entire team worked worked hard to accommodate all of our special requests. Our wedding guests had wonderful things to say about the food, the table presentation, and especially the delicious wedding cake that Sue made for us! Sue and her team provide incredible food, service and creativity at a great value! It was an absolute pleasure to work with them from start to finish and I highly recommend Tastings!! You will not be disappointed!!

We hired Tastings to cater our wedding and they far exceeded our expectations! We were married on the property of a mansion and held our reception inside the mansion. Because of the unique setting we chose to have a non-traditional reception. Our vision was to host our closest friends and family for a party to celebrate this momentous occasion! From the signing of the contract through the execution, Sue and Eileen were able to help us align our vision. This included meeting to talk about setup and ensuring that all the details were in place. The day of, Matthew and the staff were phenomenal their incredible professionalism was evident. But they were also fun to be around! Everywhere we looked there was another staff member smiling ear to ear and enjoying themselves while ensuring the guests were taken care of. The food was beyond delicious! We are still receiving compliments on the food almost a month later. This review could never capture how wonderful our day was because of Tastings and the spectacular job they did.

The food was unbelievable. Almost every single guest at my wedding told me it was the BEST food they have EVER had at a wedding. Cocktail Hour the variety was endless. For a fair price we had multiple passed apps and a huge stationary display with cheese and dips. Dinner was delicious. The cake was to die for. I almost fell over it was so delicious. Sue was so sweet and so funny! It felt like your Aunt was throwing a party for you. You could feel the love pouring out of her!

During the dancing Sue walked around with fresh baked cookies passing them out to everyone, even coming over to me on the dance floor to see if I wanted one!

The group tastings are SO fun! You get to try all of their food. And you can make friends while you're there! They gave us tons of to-go containers after the group tasting and we had dinner for days!

The only reason I didn't give Tastings a perfect score was confusion between Sue the owner and Eileen her catering manager. Both were very friendly, respectful and responsive. But there seemed to be mixed communication on their end. One person would tell us one thing and someone else would come back with the exact opposite. This made my mother and I a little paranoid, and we felt the need to quadruple check everything. The quote, the menu, all of the little details. In the end every came out PERFECT. From the food to the service. I felt so taken care of and I was over the moon about the food. I just wanted to recommend if you use Tastings to double check everything beforehand. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone in need of a caterer.

Tastings provided us with an AMAZING experience. They were recommended by our venue, and it is obvious as to why. They were professional, very detailed oriented, and make absolutely DELICIOUS food. Everyone considering Tastings should go to a group tasting, it was an important opportunity to talk with other couples, taste a wide variety of food, and talk to Sue directly. We did not want a sit down dinner, and Sue was excited to come up with stations/small plate options for us. Everyone on their team did a fabulous job working with in our budget, and they created a menu that suited our style perfectly. The day of our wedding their staff was super helpful setting up tables and chairs, and helping my wedding coordinator make the reception look absolutely beautiful. My coordinator said they were one of the best staffs she has ever worked with. When we arrived everyone was enjoying cocktail hour, and my husband and I were brought trays of everything while we were taking pictures. It was so nice to not have to worry about getting food, it just arrived! Since the wedding, our families and friends have RAVED about the food. Everyone wants to know how we were able to provide so many options that were all absolutely tasty. They are a very busy company, and sometimes communication is delayed. That being said, Sue knows what she is doing. She has been in the business for many years and will make any event as amazing as you can imagine. They are very well priced for the Boston area, and are willing to discuss cost openly, which is not the treatment we got from other caterers when we were first looking. I would trust Sue with any and all events, and I hope I can have Tastings cater future events for our family.

Working with Tastings Catering was a wonderful experience! We met with Sue a few times before our wedding and she was so kind – giving us all the time we needed to tell her about our ideas, showing us photos of past weddings she has worked, and sending us on our way with desserts she had just baked! She was very receptive to any ideas we had and has a lot of experience to draw from when making suggestions. Their food is absolutely delicious. All of our guests continue to rave about the dinner and desserts. We had a fully stocked dessert bar along with our cake thanks to Sue! We also had leftovers for days, which was awesome! Sue’s daughter, Amanda, headed up our wedding and she did a great job. She was on top of everything and very easy to work with. All of the servers, cooks and bartenders were wonderful as well. The servers made sure to keep us very well fed while taking photos during cocktail hour and everyone was so helpful and smiley! Eileen, who takes care of the business end of things was also very helpful as we sent many emails back and forth defining details for our big day. Tastings also holds actual tastings throughout the year to try out their food as well as your table setting idea and check out different venue options. This was a very cool added experience in the whole wedding process. We would definitely recommend Tastings to anyone looking for a great caterer!
