    Highly Recommend

    Update - As a follow up to my previous review, we had the absolute best experience working with Stephen and Melrose Catering for our wedding and rehearsal dinner. The food was delicious and beautifully presented – in both the buffet dinner at the rehearsal and the plated dinner and passed appetizers at the wedding. Stephen was unwavering in his professionalism, kindness, patience, organization and attention to detail, from start to finish. All of his staff and bartenders were equally outstanding. It made our entire wedding weekend a dream come true. I highly recommend using Melrose Catering for any special event, gathering or wedding.

    --
    My fiancé and I have been working with Melrose Catering for the past year in planning both our rehearsal dinner and wedding. It has proven to be a great advantage to have the catering and rentals connected. Stephen of Melrose Catering and Carlos of A Rental Connection are truly exceptional to work with – they are helpful, patient, kind, enthusiastic, flexible and knowledgeable. We are so thankful for their guidance and for their detail-oriented, timely communication. Our Melrose Catering tasting was also an amazing experience – all of the dishes were so delicious and beautifully prepared that it made it difficult to choose, but we are confident that all of 180 guests will be thrilled. The chef is remarkable. We look forward to continuing to work together through our wedding weekend in Spring 2021!

    Best of the Best!!

    What can I say about Stephen and Melrose Catering? When planning, even a small intimate backyard wedding, takes immense time and effort. Finding the right vendors is the key to making this process easier. Stephen and Melrose Catering was the right catering service for us. We chose Melrose Catering because their diverse entree selection met our dietary needs, including vegan and children. Stephen was "hands on", answering my many emails and text messages immediately. His flexibility was key to addressing and implementing my many changes over the course of the planning time. With 25 years experience, Stephen was able to help an overwhelmed bride navigate the many challenges of wedding planning and to get to the big day. We received many positive compliments of the delicious entrees and appetizers. Their service was first rate. We highly recommend Stephen and Melrose Catering as the best caterer for your event.

    Excellent Experience

    We cannot say enough good things about Melrose Catering! We got married on 7/3/21, and they provided a superb service to enhance our special day.
    First and foremost, never have a worked with someone as responsive as Stephen- what a great guy! He typically responded to any questions/concerns/updates within hours of us reaching out. His thorough communication, attention to detail, flexibility and kind demeanor make him an absolute pleasure to work with. Secondly, our guests LOVED the food! We got4 different appetizers, tri-tip, chicken piccatta, and "late night" quesadillas. Everyone raved about the generous portion sizes and quality of the food. Finally, not only was Melrose very affordable compared to many companies we looked at, their staff was all very professional and efficient. We would highly recommend this company to all!
