We had a great experience with Chef Tara and her team for our daughter's wedding at Boxwood Estate last weekend! From start to finish, she was great to work with. She went above and beyond to make sure that we would have a menu that appealed to all our guests. My favorite was the chicken with chimichurri sauce and mango chutney, but the whole spread with delicious! She joined us at the venue (Boxwood Estate) for the walk-through a couple of weeks before the wedding to make sure she made a good connection with the venue team and the wedding director so she knew exactly what they needed and expected from her. Her team was professional, polite, effective without being intrusive and FUN! After all their work was done, we LOVED it that they joined us on the dance floor for a couple of songs near the end of the evening! We can't say enough good things about our experience working with Chef Tara and recommend her wholeheartedly!Sent on 10/07/2018

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!Sent on 04/23/2019
Catering By Tara's reply:I adore your family! I am elated you always call us to serve and cater for you. Your wedding was beautiful! I am so happy for you both! Many thanks to you! Blessings to you always!
Tara and her team are extremely friendly, easy to work with...and the food is AMAZING. I highly recommend her to my clients.
Extremely professional and food is delicious!
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!
