    Excellent Experience with Catering By Tara

    Chef Tara and her crew are amazing! My family has used her for several wedding rehearsal dinners/receptions and each time they do an excellent job. She is always prepared and helps decrease the stress of the wedding day. She made sure that we always had something to eat and drink. We could not have asked for a better crew to cater our wedding and will definitely be using her in the future for any big events!

    Tara is an absolute pleasure to work with. She is one of the fastest vendors to respond, both throughout the planning process and at the event. She is very detail-oriented and truly cares about making her clients happy. The food? AMAZING!! The most recent wedding we did together was an Indian buffet, and it came out authentically fantastic. Her service is first class; I love the fact that she designates a server specifically to take care of the bride and groom throughout the evening. Tara is without doubt a team player. If another vendor needs something done in order for the night to run smoothly, she is on top of it in a flash. She bends over backwards to accommodate her clients and leaves an outstanding impression on everyone she meets. I am very much looking forward to our next event together!
