  • From the first tasting to the day my daughter got married, our experience with Lavishly Dunn was fantastic. Both Jonathan and Cayla were so professional and easy to work with. They accommodated our menu preferences with ease, and everything was delicious. I never actually expect that much when a caterer is serving 150 people, but Lavishly Dunn surpassed my expectations. The meals were served in a timely fashion and they were served hot! Numerous guests commented on how good their meal was, not to mention the appetizers and oyster bar! They really know what they're doing, so that you don't have to worry about a thing. Can't thank them, and recommend them enough!

  • Lavishly Dunn catered our wedding last week and did a phenomenal job! The food was delicious and they customized the menu to add little touches that matched our personality (their fun & unique appetizers were a huge hit!). Jonathan did a great job as our wedding day coordinator as well making sure everything ran smoothly at the rehearsal and on the day of. He and Cayla were super easy to work with in regards to preparation and coordination and we highly recommend Lavishly Dunn to anyone looking to cater their event!

  • Our wedding was in late September, 2018 so this review is long overdue! Jonathan, Cayla and the rest of the Lavishly Dunn team are absolutely fantastic. We were fortunate enough to have our wedding at a family home on the Cape, which was amazing but also came with a lot of details that normally a venue would take care of. Lavishly Dunn made the process easy and fun. Jonathan also served as our 'day of' planner. He and Cayla always quickly answered my emails and calls, helping to ensure that the 'day of' menu was correct and the wedding events could run smoothly. The food was also delicious. Honestly, it felt like we were eating in a 5 star restaurant. The horsd'oeuvres were amazing (I could have eaten a plate of those chicken quesadillas myself), and the dinner was ridiculously good. Several of our guests came up to my husband and I after, asking for recipes. When cooking for 120+ guests out of a makeshift kitchen (they set one up in our garage), I figured it would be good but honestly... Read more

  • Lavishly Dunn was fantastic!! Working with Jon and Cayla was so easy and fun, we were excited to see them on our wedding day. The night of, and since the wedding, we received so many compliments regarding just how good the food was. The salmon and risotto were particularly delicious. From the hors d’oeuvres at the cocktail hour to the carving station and the bartenders, everything was top notch and flawless. It was so reassuring to work with such a professional and talented group!

  • Rehearsal & Wedding catered by Lavishly Dunn this past weekend. Anyone looking for an amazing team of people to work with & absolutely delicious food, LAVISHLY DUNN is the one to have. We live in Miami and it is hard planning such an event from 1500 miles away, but with LAVISHLY DUNN, it was easier than I anticipated. They are so accommodating and easy to work with, not to mention the food!!! We didn't even have leftovers, food was enjoyed by one & all. Cayla was our coordinator...she was such a sweetheart and was on top of everything. She has great suggestions, so when you get stumped or confused she's right there with a solution. Jonathan (owner) was amazing! All his years of experience really helped us pull the menu together. As the nervous grooms Mom, Cayla kept me calm & reassured me all would be perfect, not to worry. She was right, it was perfect!! THANK YOU again & again Jonathan, Cayla and your entire team!!!!!!

  • I can't speak highly enough about Jonathan (the owner and chef) and Michelle (the event planner). First of all, the food was all amazing - the statler chicken breast with potato cake and green beans was delicious (some of our guests said it was the best wedding food they have ever had). Michelle was incredibly organized and responded to my calls/emails right away. After my sight visit with them, I felt at ease. She emailed me a very organized detailed schedule of the day and where everything should go right after our meeting. When I arrived, everything was set up beautifully, 1 of the servers stayed near me to make sure I was able to have my fill of apps, and they made sure my husband and I always had a drink in hand. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for fantastic food, very reasonable pricing (the were willing to make something that fit our budget), and wonderful event planning! It was an added bonus that Jonathan and Michelle are some of the nicest people we have met a... Read more

  • I highly highly recommend Lavishly Dunn to any New England bridge looking for a personally-tailored menu, delicious food, and a creative-responsive-professional staff! Jonathan took the time to respond to every email and phone call personally and made sure I felt like his number one priority. He tailored his services to fit our on-a-budget-cocktail-style reception and our unique New England meets New Orleans requests (no one in New England makes a better New Orleans Shrimp Po Boy than Jonathan's team!) On top of delicious food (that we actually got to eat because Jonathan made sure one waiter was dedicated just to us during cocktail hour), Lavishly Dunn can literally do all parts of your wedding if you wanted - they have so many contacts and know the area/venues well, so they can do anything! All our guests are still telling us how much they loved the food (and even the presentation of the food!) Thanks for making our wedding delicious!!!

  • If there were 10 stars that is what I would have given them. This was a private dinner party for 10 close friends who were celebrating a birthday. From start to finish it was amazing - presentation, quality of food, originality of food, impeccable service and professionalism. Jonathon and Nicole were obviously enjoying what they were doing and it showeed - the night before they had done an event in Boston for 1,000 people but you would never have known - I would and will recommend them to all groups.

  • Lavishly Dunn is a terrific full-service catering company. They have a tremendous staff with a great deal of knowledge of the events industry. They are quick to respond to requests both before and during the event. They are reasonably priced,meet budgets and exceed all expectations! They are unmatched in the city of Boston - in my opinion.

  • I never write reviews, but my experience was so poor that I sadly felt compelled to warn future brides and grooms. To be brief, your quote will be a starting point that will increase little by little until your budget has been largely exceeded. For a wedding of 140, we gave a $20k budget. By the time we got to the tasting, the bill had creeped up to $26k. The team at Lavishly Dunn will give you affordable options in order to lock in your $1k deposit, at which point they know they have you hooked. When I addressed the fact that my budget had been blown by 30% for nothing new or special added, Jonathan, the owner, told me that "it wasn't that much of a difference from where we started." However, when I requested my deposit back, I was told that "$1k is a lot for Lavishly Dunn, and they would not return my money." The hypocritical, deceitful practices here are shameful - for those trying to plan a beautiful (and already expensive!) day. Additionally, when going to the tasting, it is $75 p... Read more

  • Lavishly dunn's food is fantastic! Why is that not a category for rating? The price is reasonable for the quality. It is a small business, though, so be prepared for several days to respond to your questions that is until the week of the wedding then they are very receptive. I would recommend them.

  • We hired Lavishly Dunn for our wedding and day-of coordination this summer. My mom had seen them on a local news segment and promptly scheduled a tasting for them to cater our backyard wedding. They were able to work with our budget and alter some things to get the cost down to the amount we were able to pay by substituting certain dishes, and none of the quality or flavors suffered! We also hired them for coordination services, so that day-of we could have someone directing the activities. While we started off with one coordinator, she left and we were paired with another. Most everything went according to plan but there were a couple things missing upon arrival of the cocktail hour. After gentle reminders from my mother-in-law, the missing items were located and placed accordingly. Our details were very complicated and LD was able to work with our requests. I would recommend them for future events!

  • First off ... the food was delicious. My only complaint about Lavishly Dunn is that we got almost no leftovers from our stations and the food was so good that we really, really wanted leftovers to take home! When I told them after the event that this was my only complaint, the chef actually put together a batch of some of the food we'd had at the event for us. It wasn't as good as what we had at the event, unfortunately, but what they did on the day was the important part. Our guests have repeatedly told us that they loved the food, and that everything was delicious. From the very beginning, they were focused on us, our event and what we wanted. They provided a private tasting, using our menu - something no other caterer offered us. When we were told that they never had a tasting when they didn't make a sale, I didn't believe them, until we went for our tasting. Yum. They sent us home from that with a huge bag of leftovers, and they didn't last 24 hours. At the event the st... Read more
