Tastings is amazing is so many ways. Even at our first meeting with the owner, Sue, we were so excited. They have multiple tastings throughout the year at different locations and even without a contract you can go and taste a sampling of a TON of their food. They do it all, food, event planning, day of coordinating, everything. On the day of our guests were raving about all of the food, and they still are even a month later. Sue is also an incredible baker! We had a pie buffet for dessert (we're not cake people) and she did an incredible job with a whole assortment of different pies. And we can't say enough about Matt, their son, who did most of the event coordinating the day of and did an incredible job at listening to what we'd envisioned and making it real. The best part? They were well within budget and didn't charge for things that really should be charged for. If you choose the linens she already has and the flatware, no charge, unlike some other caterers we looked at that charged hundreds for this. I can't say enough about this team, they were amazing!

Tastings catered our 9/15/2015 wedding at the Pierce House in Lincoln, MA. They hit it out of the park in every way. Their team is so much more than a catering crew. We had a do-it-yourself type tent wedding, with a hodgepodge of vendors and rental companies and florists and shuttles to manage. Tastings helped us put everything together - they set up the tables and chairs, set up all our gift tables, placed our escort cards for us, and made sure everything looked PERFECT before the wedding. I cannot even describe what a huge help this was, as we were able to sit back, relax and enjoy the day a bit more. Also, when we ran low on beer & liquor in the middle of the reception, Sue even made a run to the store to pick up more. I don't know what we would have done without her! Sue was so wonderful throughout the planning process, as well. We met with her 3 separate times to talk about the menu, and she was so warm, kind, and helpful. She really enjoys what she does, and it shows. She's a total pleasure to work with. Tastings is a family business, and Sue's husband, son and daughter are also wonderful, as is Eileen in the office. The same goes for the rest of the staff. And the FOOD! Was AMAZING, without exception. The guests were raving about everything, most of all the mini desserts. We picked out a few different kinds as part of the menu, but of course Sue made even more because she loves baking. We are still hearing about how much people loved the maple bacon donuts. She also made us the most beautiful wedding cake. We initially saved some in our freezer for our 1 year anniversary. But then we decided to eat it on our 3 week anniversary because it was so delicious. Oops. In sum, we would recommend Tastings to everyone, without reservation.

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!!!!!

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.

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.

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!

If I could give 6 stars I would. My now wife and I had Tastings cater our wedding last September and we couldn't have been any happier! I initially found out about Tasting through a Best of Boston article, I read some additional reviews and set up an appointment. Sue had us come to her house for the initial meeting which incredibly enough was within walking distance of our own house! Within minutes of meeting her we knew we had found the right person for the Job. Sue is so nice and laid back without even tasting her food we booked her for our wedding.
A few months later we attended on of her tastings at the Endicott Estate in Dedham. They allowed us to each have a guest so we both brought along our mothers. The entire staff was very courteous as well as knowledgeable about all of the dishes they were serving. Needless to say I was in a food coma after the event. I found it very helpful that they provided a packet that listed all of the displays and dishes we tasted.
When it came to the day of the wedding we were blown away by their attention to detail and level of service. Sue pretty much took the roll of wedding coordinator and made sure all of our vendors were doing their part. I cannot say enough good things about her and her husband John (the chef) as well as her son Matt. Our guests raved about the food and one of our guests has since booked them for half a dozen events.

Tastings was fantastic. They were the most reasonably priced caterer that we met with, and Sue and Eileen are both very friendly and easy to work with. The food was fantastic, and our guests keep talking about how they all went back for seconds! Sue is also REALLY into desserts, so there were LOTS of desserts and three flavors of delicious cake. They also set up all the chairs for the ceremony, and then changed the room over twice for us. Everything went smoothly, and I didn't have to worry about a thing. I would definitely recommend Tastings to a friend, and would consider hiring them again for future events.
