Professional & warm staff; delicious food & wine
Peppers Artful Events catered my daughter's wedding at Tower Hill in May 2019 and I cannot rave about them enough. Jody Boyajian was our wedding event manager and every detail was attended to. Jody accommodated every request we had and anticipated our every need. She recommended how to keep us within out budget yet not sacrifice on quality or taste. The food and service were outstanding. The service the night of the wedding was flawless. Peppers' staff was so professional. They researched alternate wines that were still in our budget but that we liked better than the original offering. The owner Susan even delivered bottles to our home - twice! - until we got just the right wine selection that we loved. Our guests raved about every aspect from the kindness, warmth and professionalism of the service to the fantastic wine offerings to the delicious meals. All food allergies were accommodated - vegan, GF, DF etc etc. I will definitely catering future events with Peppers and hope to have Jody again as my event manager! 5 stars!Sent on 05/29/2019

We found Peppers during an emotional time for my son and daughter-in-law. I am the groom's mother. My daughter-in-law lost her mother to an early and a long struggle with Alzheimer's. Then, soon after their engagement, my son found out he'd be deploying for nearly a year after their wedding. We met with Jody Boyajian, Senior Event Designer of Peppers, at a joyous yet difficult time in their lives. Jody assured us that their wedding day would be nothing short of perfection, and she delivered. I think it's important to read reviews about food when you're hiring a caterer, but Peppers was so much more to us. Yes, the food was spectacular - elegant, plentiful, superb quality, and the presentation was beautiful. I also have to mention their baker, Lisa, whose creation was one of the highlights of the evening. Three tiers, each a different flavor that our bride and groom were more than happy to taste and select. However, I need to give higher praise to the staff. My father raised a family of 5 girls and had high expectations regarding etiquette. When the bride and groom left their table to greet guests, the wait staff prompt refolded and repositioned their napkins - as my father taught us was proper expectation from good waitstaff. During photos, we had our own waitstaff at the ready with food and drink, knowing full well that we'd all been too excited to eat before then. I also have to mention their baker, Lisa, whose creation was one of the highlights of the evening. Three tiers, each a different flavor that our bride and groom were more than happy to taste and select. We'll be recommending and using Peppers again for sure. Thank you Jody, Darcy, Lisa and all those who contributed to our perfect wedding day.Sent on 05/20/2019

Best food in the city and amazing service!
I am so glad we went with Peppers for our wedding! We are both major foodies and it was the number one priority for us. Trish is amazing and great to work with, she intentionally set up our tasting about a year in advance so that we would get the fresh produce in the same season we were getting married so it would be easier to judge how things would taste. She was right and everything met and exceeded our expectations on the day. They even brought in a full kitchen to the venue to make sure everything was at the perfect temperature and fresh when we got it. We recieved so many complements from all our guests on the food - my mother-in-law even said the chowder rivalled hers and she is very serious about her chowder! Peppers was even willing and volunteered to make special dishes for a couple of my guests who have food intolerances so they could also have the full experience. We also got our cakes from them and chose a dark chocolate Buche de Noel as our cutting cake and dark and white chocolate Swiss rolls precut to serve, everything but a bit less than what would have been on a top tier of a traditional cake was gone before the end, it was amazing (both flavors - we tried both). The service was also AMAZING, Tracy the day of coordinator kept everything running smoothly and made sure everyone was fed and happy and that people knew about and were able to try both of our signature mocktails (half our guests were either under 21 or dont drink so we went with themed mocktails instead). One of the servers, Theresa, was extra attentive to the two of us, bringing us a huge plate of the hors d'oeurves while we were doing pictures and keeping everyone out of the area while I was switching dresses. She made sure to check on us every 5-10 minutes to make sure we had what we needed since we couldnt walk through the room to get things ourselves without being stopped. All of the staff was amazing and helpful going out of their way to make sure everyone was taken care of from boxing up cake for my sister to take back to the hotel for her kids who fell asleep in thier dinner, to holding the cocktail hour a bit longer so we could finish pictures before everyone was seated for soup course. I will definitely use Peppers again if I have an event to plan, and would definitely order platters of their pig newtons for a random Saturday because they are just that amazingly delicious!Sent on 12/16/2019
Pepper's Catering is simply - outstanding. Their presentation, the taste of the food, the event managers are the best of the best. I am both relieved and thrilled every time my clients select Pepper's for their big day!
The Harry Parker Boat House is a unique space. It takes a special kind of caterer to understand how to pull it all together and make it work and work beautifully. Pepper's Fine Catering understand how to pull it all together and help ensure a memorable event for all their clients. Cooperation and flexibility, as well as an eye for details, is why it is a pleasure to work with Pepper's.
We work with a lot of caterers throughout the greater Boston and New England area. Pepper's stands above the rest with their warm hospitality, professional staff and top notch customer service. They take great care of each and every guest, ensuring everyone has an incredible dining experience from cocktail hour through dinner and dessert. Then they hand everyone over to us and we rock them on the dance floor. It's a great 1, 2 punch and we love working the Pepper's team. Keep up the great work folks. We'll see you on the circuit!!
