  • Portsmouth Catering Co. provided hors d'oeuvres and dinner for my wedding in November, 2019. We were pleased with the quality and presentation of food and by the friendly and professional staff. They magically prepared food in a small space and you'd never know it! I highly recommend Portsmouth Catering Co.

  • I used Portsmouth Catering Co's catering and bartending service for our wedding this past August. From beginning to end, the team was extremely professional, proactive about offering menu suggestions, and flexible in making changes as plans for the day evolved. During the wedding, service was flawless from cocktail hour through last call, the food was delicious, and the staff was friendly and helped keep the reception flowing. I was so pleased with the value Portsmouth delivered and highly recommend them for weddings and major events!

  • Portsmouth Catering just catered my daughter's wedding and we couldn't have been happier. Not only was the food delicious, but the servers/bartenders/planners were great to work with. Arrived the day before to check out the venue. Day of wedding showed up on time, stayed on schedule and left the kitchen facility clean and organized for the rentals to be picked up the next day. I highly recommend Portsmouth Catering.

  • Mike was awesome to work with and the food was fantastic! He catered a baby shower and graduation party in one for us for about 100 people. There was plenty of everything and his staff was wonderful.

  • Wow, where do I even begin? The food at our wedding was phenomenal. Everyone kept asking who we used because it was some of the best food they've had, wedding aside! Michael was incredible to work with. Responsive, kind, talented, flexible, and an all around genuine person. His food both in his restaurant and his catering are delicious and we will be making a point to stop in whenever we're in Portsmouth. Michael was also very flexible and accomodating to my vegetarian needs and even with the very few vegans in attendance, even though we told him he didn't need to worry about that minority, he still did. The meat lovers were very very impressed by the pulled pork and lamb, and my husband (a foodie of all foodies) said the swordfish is the best he's ever had. Use Michael! You will not be disappointed!

  • YUM. If you want the most amazing food at your wedding this is the caterer for you. I had been at a wedding where Michael was the caterer and I loved the food and got their information. From the start it was easy to work with PCC and I knew that my food would be special. I loved the food truck, I love that Michael as creative and delicious food. My family and friends came up to me during and after the wedding and said that this was the best food that they ever had at a wedding. Everyone wanted his business cards. The food truck was so much fun and looked awesome. The grilling station was so delicious. The pulled pork was of the hook. The Mac and Cheese station was a big hit with both kids and adults. I went very heavy on appetizers and there was not one that I did not love. The steak on a potato chip was a huge hit. I suggest that if you are thinking of hiring him, go to his restaurant in Portsmouth and have lunch there. I promise you that by the end of the meal you wil... Read more

  • I highly recommend Portsmouth Catering. We did a very detailed evaluation of vendors on the seacoast prior to our wedding. They won by a mile. The results on the day of we're better than expected. The food was AWESOME. I think I had at least a half dozen of their chicken and waffles (definitely get these for your wedding). Incredible! We heard tons of comments from our guests about how good the food was. The only thing better than the food was the wait staff. They were really nice, attentive to guests and checked in with us often to make sure everything was okay and that we had food.

  • The quality of food received was very good and I had a very lovely wedding day overall. However, I was not e-mailed back a number of times when trying to finalize the menu (even if to simply loop in the event planner or to direct us to another POC) and ultimately the caterer served us the completely wrong menu. For spending 15,000 to get the menu wrong and the dismissiveness and shifting of blame to our event planner that we were met with after highlighting this left us feeling like the catering company lacked accountability and really should have done something to remedy for us after the event.

  • We used PCC for our wedding and the food was delicious! Leslie of Love Affair handles their coordination and she was wonderful to work with! Everything leading up to our wedding was great. Our wedding was at Hamilton House Gardens, which is a beautiful spot but there was a ton of rain right before our wedding so the area under our tent became swampy. While Hamilton House Gardens is a gorgeous location, the layout and the rain/mud made for an especially challenging catering event. The size of the property coupled with the poor weather caused a few hiccups in the service, including some confusion about the bar service between the cocktail hour and the reception. After our wedding, we spoke with PCC and Love Affair about these issues and they were receptive and eager to improve. Overall, great value and food!

  • I hired Michael/Portsmouth Catering to provide appetizers for a Welcome Event for my wedding weekend. We had hired the Gundalow boat for a sunset sail, for 45 members of our family.I wanted food that would be best served cold and easy to eat on a boat.We settled on a large charcuterie platter for $10/pp. On the day if the event the weather wasn't looking good and we thought we had to cancel the boat and move the event to a different space.Michael has originally asked if I wanted black plastic platters that we would throw away after or a nicer butcher block and bowls that we would return after. I had opted for the plastic platers, since we were on the boat.I emailed Michael and asked to switch to the butcher block and bowls. We ended up on the boat after all and I figured the butch block would be fine.My uncle picked up the food for us. When I arrived, on time for my event I found ALL the food to be in about 15/20 clear plastic containers in shopping bags. Nothing was arranged on the bu... Read more

    I have nothing to reply to this other than, what she said happened is a complete fabrication of what took place. I have emails to show for it. To the point I got my lawyer involved. We strive to go above and beyond for our clients and it shows with the stellar reviews, multiple awards and booking out a year in advance with very satisfied couples and clients. It's a shame people like this are out there and want to hurt others.

  • When we began to plan our wedding, my fiance's biggest concern was the catering and that it was delicious, while I do not eat meat and wanted family style farm to table. With almost 85% of the guests coming in from out of town it was really important to provide an entire weekend for them to enjoy, so we booked Michael and his team for the Friday night welcome dinner (pig roast - husband was thrilled), Saturday wedding reception and cocktail hour (charcuterie boards with family style dinner), and Sunday brunch (breakfast burrito food truck). All the food was incredible and our guests RAVED about how exceptional the food was. The team even left the pig roast leftovers from Friday for us to have later in the weekend! Michael also suggested these amazing disposable and biodegradable palm plates that we used for the reception and cocktail hour that were beautiful and added a really special element to the table spreads. The only area I could see a little room for improvement I will say is th... Read more

  • Michael is a tremendous chef and a great guy to work with. He's very laid back, yet his crew was organized, professional, and courteous. And the food is simply incredible and beautifully presented. I could have been happy with eating just the pulled pork sliders and fish taco passed apps but am glad to have saved room for the main course. I can't tell you how many guests came up to me and said "best wedding ever", these guys played a huge part in our special day.

  • Food was one of the most important things to me at my weddings. Nothing worse than going to a wedding and the food is almost inedible. I got many compliments on the food :D It was delicious. I was very very happy with it. Day of the wedding the staff was very very professional and really cared for my groom and me. We even requested a couple unusual items for a wedding such as short ribs, oysters, and AN ICE CREAM SUNDAE BAR! He didn't skip a beat at any of my requests. I also prefer a plated dinner because I tend to be a more formal person, but also because I wanted to make sure my groom and I actually ate! When it's plated, people sit and it gives you time to eat! He had no problems with the plated meal for 130 people! My only complain would be his response time, which is why he didn't get a 5 out of 5. But once your wedding is actually coming up - like 5 months away-ish, he has a wedding planner step in and handle all communications, so it really became a non-issue. All instructions ... Read more

  • We hired Portsmouth Catering Co. to provide food for a large Baptismal party. I selected them based on their sustainable approach and their farm to table options offered whenever possible. It was wonderful! They worked with me to accommodate the most economical solution and the food was very good. I will work with them again for any occasion!
