Wonderful!

East Meets West catered our backyard wedding in June, 2022 - they were fantastic! They specifically designed our menu to meet our preferences (one of us is vegetarian) and cultural background. Leading up to the wedding they helped us get rentals and we had a wonderful tasting (full portions, tons of leftovers). On the day of, they brought in all their equipment and a whole team of staff, who were so professional, quickly and calmly managing all problems that came up (and problems do sometimes happen during backyard weddings!). Plus, the food was delicious - so many guests commented on how much they enjoyed it. We are so glad we decided to hire East Meets West for our wedding and highly recommend working with them!

Great wedding caterer!

We worked with Catherine for our wedding in September 2022. Given the crazy wedding season, she only started getting more hands on in the month leading up to the wedding. Up until then, she was a little less responsive (still responsive though!), but we trusted that we were in good hands. And she and her team did not disappoint! We are really glad to have had the pleasure of working with East Meets West. They listened to our concerns, and worked with us to get the amazing food we wanted with some nods to our cultures. Our friends with food allergies were pleased with their attentiveness to allergies. Also - their tasting room/headquarters is absolutely gorgeous down in the Seaport. We felt like we were in good hands the whole time leading up to our wedding. Catherine and her team were amazing and very detail-oriented on the day. The service was impeccable, and the food was delicious! I would recommend East Meets West to any local friends and family planning a big event.

Food guests will talk about a month later

You know they've knocked it out of the park when weeks later we still have guests mention that it was some of the best wedding food they had. We opted for something a little nontraditional with stations and I could not recommend that enough. It gave ample options for everyone and EMW was incredibly helpful with adjusting to dietary requests while still keeping everything cohesive. I was blown away by the presentation of everything from the succulents on the passed hor d'oeuvres to the accompaniments on the carving station. As a foodie, you cannot go wrong with East Meets West.
