Just the best.
We worked with Mary Rickard, who was incredibly patient with our total lack of knowledge regarding weddings, and our incredible pickiness. She took all of our terrible ideas (eg. Can we serve poutine for dinner?) and made them into not only a workable plan, but wicked awesome (eg. How about a poutine bar at cocktail hour instead with two different kinds of gravy?). They took care of everything- I never had to worry at the wedding whether something was happening or not, and I got to stay present and in the moment. Everything went so smoothly with the entire team. The tables looked wonderful, my vegan and gluten-free guests were taken care of (and not in a 'here's your salad' way), and the food came out amazing- everything from the maple lemonade to the wedding cake. An absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. Cannot recommend them enough!Sent on 10/29/2018

East Meets West was the most professional, accommodating, helpful, and valuable vendor for our October 2017 wedding at the Charles River Museum. We worked closely with Brenda throughout the entire process - from choosing the menu, to selecting linens and flatware, to designing a unique floorplan, to coordinating the wedding cake. Brenda was the go-to person on our wedding day, even offering to coordinate with all the other vendors at the reception.
From the beginning, the East Meets West team listened to our requests for a primarily vegetarian menu, giving us many options during our tasting, and even packaging up all the leftovers for us to enjoy afterwards. They continued this generous spirit throughout our wedding planning process, making themselves available for site visits, coming to our apartment to pick up decorations, and doing all the set-up and clean-up after the wedding.
East Meets West provided incredible service throughout the event, assigning us our own server who gave us appetizers and drinks, and checked up on us throughout the evening. The whole team was an absolute dream to work with. We would highly recommend East Meets West for their attention to detail and professionalism, and thank them for making our dream wedding come true!Sent on 12/09/2017

Beth from East Meets West is a rockstar. From the very first engagement we had with her, she has been an incredible partner to work with. East Meets West goes above and beyond - they were enthusiastic with our meal selection, offered insights and tips, and then staged a beautiful trial run at their gorgeous location in Boston! We appreciated EMW's desire to have us try the food, see the place settings, see the portion sizes, etc, BEFORE we booked with them.Sent on 11/05/2016
EMW did not provide the lowest estimate to us, but their proposal was reasonable and detailed. We understood where the costs were going, and are so happy that we went with them. The catering company is the workhorse of the event, which I hadn't realized until engaging with EMW - setting up the ceremony, breaking down the ceremony, setting up the reception, bar needs, apps, booze... but also all of the little things that make an event feel like your own. We felt like they went far beyond what we expected in setting up our favors, cute little signs for our cakes and signature drinks, making sure that all of the different elements felt cohesive during the event.
Speaking of the food... to die for. We heard so many raves from our guests on every aspect of the food, from the appetizers, the entree, and the desserts. The DESSERTS. Oh my. They have an in-house dessert department. We chose a trio of cakes, and each one was unbelievably delicious!
The service was impeccable. As soon as the ceremony was over, one of the servers brought us a tray with all of the apps so we could enjoy them, and our signature drink! This sort of thoughtfulness carried through the entire event. The entire staff was so attentive, skilled, and friendly.
We can't recommend them highly enough. Our day went perfectly, a such a large reason for it was EMW.
We have worked with East Meets West on several events over the years. Their staff is extremely friendly, knowledgeable and organized. Their fine cooking is some of the best around. We definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a great catering team!
What an amazing talent! Your guest will be amazed and tell their friends its the best meal they had while on St. John!
GBE always enjoys working with EMW and Michele! Professional, caring, and the food is simply the BEST! You will love the fact that you hired them... and your guest will be impressed!
