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!

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!

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.

Going with Tastings was one of the best decisions we've made with our wedding. The price was unbeatable, the food was excellent (so sad that we didn't have much leftover because our guests gobbled it up) and the service was superb and professional. In addition, Sue and Eileen really went the extra mile to make our reception so much more beautiful than I could've imagined, since I've provided minimal decoration stuff, they brought many additional items at their disposal to set the ambiance. Thank you so much for making our wedding day easy and a huge success!

My (now) husband and I worked with Sue and Eileen from Tastings Caterers for our wedding on 8/15/14. Our venue had a list of about 8 caterers that we could use and after narrowing it down and emailing half of them (some were kind of jerks when they heard our budget), we knew immediately that Tastings was the right choice. Our biggest concerns - like most couples- was quality, cost and comfort level. Sue worked with us to make sure that we had the most amazing appetizers, entrees, wedding cake and other deserts for a price that was within our budget. Our guests went crazy for the food. They all commented too on how friendly the staff (servers and bartenders) were as well.
It's not only the food that makes Tastings so great, it's the level of confidence we had in them to basically run "the show" for wedding day and prep. Sue met with us several times to review our menu, ask about decor options and to make sure that everything was there that we could possibly and realistically have. Eileen met with us at the party rental store to pick out all of the linens and ensure that we had a beautiful look and feel to our wedding space. From the first meeting with Sue and I placed all of my confidence in her that she would help us create the most beautiful and memorable wedding day. They went above and beyond -- I'm gushing, I know, but truly, I would recommend them with all my heart.

I can not write enough good things about this caterer. After meeting with a few caterers before Tastings I was very nervous about finding someone I would like. Sue and Eileen were amazing to work! Even though my wedding was a few months ago as I see family and friends for the first time after the wedding they are still raving about the food and especially the dessert table. They went above and beyond on the day of the wedding and really thought of every extra detail. They even made sure that the flower girls got their meals first so they didn't need to sit through the salad without food!! All the staff were so friendly and nice and even helped us pack up stuff at the end of the night!! Amazing company and staff!!
