  • The East Meets West team catered delicious appetizers for our casual spring wedding and were an absolute pleasure to work with front start to finish. Brenda was extremely attentive, communicative, and accommodating of our guests' allergies and dietary restrictions. The guests were raving about the finger food. We can't recommend EMW more highly!

  • 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!

  • 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 ... Read more

  • 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. 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,... Read more

  • Phil and his team at East West were amazing! They provided a level of service and flexibility on our wedding day that met ever single one of our expectations. The quality of the food was amazing, and the dedication given the rainy weather made their attention to detail that much more appreciated. Phil specifically made the entire process smooth and seamless and it help my husband and I feel at ease throughout the entire day. These guys have high quality food, staff, and management. Very much impressed and would highly recommend them to anyone.

  • Overall, the Exchange Conference Center (ECC) was a fantastic venue for our August '14 wedding, and the East Meets West (EMW) food was outstanding! Venue: We were originally drawn to the ECC for its clean lines and decor, soaring windows, great natural light, and uniquely Boston feel. The ECC is very close to several hotels, meaning we did not need to arrange for transportation between the hotels and the venue. Ample free parking for our guests was also a big perk. Food: Just fabulous. We have been to many weddings where the food is barely better than a school cafeteria. With East Meets West (EMW), there is no question that the food will be fabulous and thrill your most epicurean guests. We also loved how receptive they were to our comments and preferences during the tasting and menu planning. Service: From a planning perspective, both Rebecca Thomas and Michele Stump went above and beyond- they worked with us to plan our wedding from start to finish. Not only did they ... Read more

  • So. good. Michele and EMW Catering went truly above and beyond in making my wedding the most amazing day ever. Michele was so helpful in answering all my questions promptly and responding to my requests, even up till the day before the wedding. She was so enthusiastic about my ideas and helped execute them even beyond what I'd thought they could be. She and the chefs were completely accommodating to my food requests, including dealing with vegans, gluten free, and other issues. They also provided ideas for nontraditional food options and delivered beautifully--all of our guests had sky high expectations for the food and drinks and Michele and EMW did not disappoint! We had a completely amazing day and it wouldn't have happened without the terrific staff at EMW. Thank you so much!

  • My husband and I were very impressed by our experience with East Meets West who catered our wedding. We set up tastings at a few different highly recommended companies. The food at each tasting was very good, but did not come close to East Meets, where the food was fantastic. From that first tasting, I started looking forward to the meal I would have at the wedding. Phil was our catering manager and we could not have been happier. He was quick to respond to my questions. He was extremely easy to work with and had great ideas, which put me at ease knowing everything would go right on the big day. Everything had to be brought to our venue, from the kitchen set up to the linens and flatware. Phil handled everything and I did not have to stress in the slightest. In my opinion, the food is extremely important from a catering company, but so is the wait staff service, which is more than simply delivering a plate of food. Unlike many companies, East Meets West understood that. On th... Read more

  • East Meets West is a fabulous caterer. The Boston Exchange conference Center, East Meets West's home base is a hidden gem of a place for a wedding. Everything about our experience with them was perfect. A wedding is the sum of many small details and Rebecca and her staff got every one of them right. Everything went off without a hitch. All the moving parts were coordinated smoothly. Everything looked beautiful, from the table settings to the presentation of the food. The food was exceptional. Both the hors d'oeuvres and dinner were creative and delicious. Rebecca helped them design a creative menu.Many guests commented on how unusually good the food was. Also, the staff was very cordial and professional. We got so many compliments from our firends and relatives. Not only was the food and service terrific, but you were terrific to work with. Rebecca paid close attention to the little details as well as the big picture. The confidence we felt working with her helped make the whole experi... Read more

  • I worked with Michele Stump on customizing a cocktail hour and dinner for my wedding. I had close to 140 guests. Michele offered suggestions on what guests enjoy, and was able to help us create delicious options for the bests. Everyone loved the food! The guests said the food was the best ever. They especially enjoyed the filet for dinner and the mini lobster rolls and scallops wrapped in bacon at the cocktail hour. I highly recommend East Meets West as your caterer.

  • East meets West was absolutely amazing! Phil was our catering manager and he was super friendly, responsive, helpful, professional... Just everything you could ask for! He got back to my initial email right away, and had a quote for me the next day. They put together a delicious, unique breakfast menu for us that our guests absolutely raved about. The wedding was held completely off site so everything had to be brought in, from the kitchen set up to the linens and flatware. Phil handled all of the rentals for me and I did not have to stress in the slightest. On the day of everything ran smoothly, the staff was super friendly and professional, and the food was perfect. While it was on the more expensive side, it was absolutely worth every last penny. I would highly recommend East meets West! Ask for Phil!

  • East Meets West was a fantastic catering service! Frank was extremely easy to work with, responded to all questions in a prompt manner, and gave fantastic suggestions/recommendations (all of which I took). The tasting alone was delicious, and we couldn't wait for the reception. They are a classy, professional business, and they make you feel like your day is important and unique. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

  • East Meets West was great to work with! Brenda was one of the few caterers we talked to who understood what kind of menu we were looking for. And not only did they understand our menu, but they delivered fantastic food and service. Our guests could not stop talking about the amazing food throughout the entire event and the waiters were attentive, professional and mostly invisible during the night. We were even more impressed by Brenda and Emily's (our day-of contact) total service - not only were they on top of the food, but they helped us shape our vision, coordinated rentals and alcohol, set everything up and packed everything up for us, and generally made sure the day went as smoothly as possible!

  • East Meets West was the exclusive caterer of our wedding venue, Boston Exchange Conference Center. Food was extremely important to my husband and I as we were planning the big day, as we are big foodies. EMW did not dissapoint! Our guests are still raving about the amazing food and large quantities.

  • Overall we were very pleased with our experiences with Frank and East Meets West. From the start Frank was attentive and provided a great experience, even creating special items not on their menu. Everyone at the wedding raved about the food and I believe that's one of the most important aspects of the event! East Meets West was well staffed and professional. We hit a few snags with rentals that Frank was able rectify at the last minute without stress to myself or my partner. The one complaint shared by myself and several guests was that the food and drinks were bussed a little too quickly. Some guests never had a chance to have cake and clearing partially consumed drinks really racked up our liquor bill. I would, with some caution, recommend East Meets West.
