  • Having been on both sides of a wedding as a (frequent) attendee and now a bride, I can honestly say that Vinwood was hands-down the caterer with the BEST wedding food I’ve ever had. Our guests can’t stop raving about how DELICIOUS everything was, which was all cooked fresh on site!! Even though we chose passed hor'dourves and a buffet dinner for 110 guests, nobody went hungry and there was never a line for any stations. They worked closely with us and our other vendors in the months leading up to our big day, and went out of their way to make sure we ate at our own wedding! Harmony even made sure that our food didn’t get cold while we were visiting tables, and she handled surprise guests with professional ease. The quality of food and service we received from Vinwood greatly exceeds their prices, and we are incredibly grateful to have worked with them. We highly recommend them (and their signature butternut squash ravioli)!

  • We hired Vinwood for our wedding this fall and they were the best! After sampling the food at one of their wedding tastings, we decided to hire them right away. There were many items to choose from which made it difficult, because everything sounded great. Finally, we decided on our menu and finalized it with Gary, who was nothing but professional and very helpful. On our wedding day, Vinwood did not dissapoint. The food was amazing and all of our guests complimented us (Vinwood) on the food. The staff was awesome and extremely helpful in helping set up some of the decorations I brought in (which they don't always do, due to time constraints). I am so thankful for Barbara and staff for their help. They made the setting look truly amazing...everything was perfect!

  • We opted for cocktail style food and it was absolutely perfect for our event. Everyone is still raving about the food! We had a taco bar, slider bar (vegetarian and beef), and a risotto cup bar. Everything was delicious! Thanks again!

  • It was amazing to work with Vinwood on our big day! Gary was super helpful and organized throughout the planning process. When we went to the tasting it was hard to choose from all the amazing options. We were so happy with the selections we made and were adamant that we would eat our meals during our wedding (and we did) since the food was so delicious. We heard such amazing reviews about Vinwood from others and we are so happy we decided to go with them!

  • Vinwood has the best food! We got married a month ago and we’re still getting compliments on the food. For cocktail hour we got the passed apps and a stationed antipasto platter. The passed apps never stopped and the antipasto display was great. For the main course we got filet and haddock and they were both delicious and the portion sizes were very large. We keep saying we hope someone else we know uses vinwood for their wedding in the future so we can eat the food again! The staff is extremely nice and attentive and Ashley/Bridget were both so easy and nice to work with throughout the planning process. There are so many choices and they’re extremely flexible in your choices. We asked for a fast dinner service and they exceeded our expectations! We would highly recommend.

  • Working with Vinwood was a great experience for my husband and I. Ashley and Bridget were very responsive. Bridget followed up with us multiple times to make sure all the selections were accurate. I had some specific requests - such as having a wait staff with us during cocktail hour - and she was right by our side the entire time!! Kristen was our coordinator at the event and she was AMAZING!! She came to check in with me when she arrived to the venue and was there with us for the entire event. I could feel that her number one priority was to have the day go smoothly and it most definitely did. It was reassuring to have her by my side. Our whole experience with Vinwood made wedding planning less stressful and they were very pleasant to work with. I do not have enough good things to say about them!

  • Vinwood was absolute perfection! We worked on all the planning with Stephanie and had the best experience. She was easy to reach, able to accommodate to all of our requests and all around helpful with everything. We were lucky enough to have her as our day of coordinator as well, which really helped ease our minds. The food was outstanding, multiple guests commented to us on how amazing everything tasted. It was just the perfect day and we were so happy to have Vinwood be a part of it.

  • Vinwood was amazing to work with. From the first time we met at the tasting, they were so accommodating and friendly. They allowed us customize absolutely anything that we wanted when it came to our wedding food including changing the fruit in the salad, creating a crispy chicken entree for us, and even making garlic-butter brushed grilled cheese for the late night food (which wasn't even on the menu). I can't say enough good things about catering manager Kristin - who was like a fairy godmother to us the day of the wedding. She had such a calm, cool, demeanor and was a SAINT to have around. Before I walked down the aisle there are photos of her fixing the train of my dress, and positioning my veil (I didn't even notice she was doing that!). When our drinks were low, she would magically appear with new ones. As soon as the grilled cheeses came out, she'd magically appear with sandwiches for us. She just really went above and beyond in all aspects, and I'm so grateful she was there with... Read more

  • Vinwood is the exclusive caterer for The Mansion on Turner Hill, where we got married on 9/20/19. We were super impressed from the very beginning of the tasting event, through the planning process, and--most importantly--on the day of the wedding! Kristin, the catering manager on the day of our wedding, was exceptionally attentive. She had appetizers waiting for us in the bridal suite after the ceremony but before we joined the cocktail hour, so that we would not be hungry if we spent too much of dinner time greeting guests. She also offered awesome advice about how and when to greet our guests so that we could maximize our time at dinner, and made sure other parts of the evening such as the cake cutting ran 100% smoothly. All of the wait staff was completely professional, and most importantly, the food was PERFECT! If you get the chance, put the chilean seabass on your menu -- it was a smash hit :).

  • We got married at Smolak Farms in North Andover, MA and this was one of their 4 vendors to choose from. We were told that Vinwood was a great vendor for plated dinners, especially given the size of our group (165 wedding guests), so we followed our event coordinator's recommendation and booked with Vinwood. We worked with two coordinators, Ashley (up until the birth of her child, congrats!) and Bridget. Both coordinators were extremely professional to work with and helped put our minds at ease knowing that everything would be executed perfectly. We started by going to a tasting where we got to try a bit of everything we ended up putting on the menu. We used Vinwood for our 30 person rehearsal dinner hosted at our venue, Smolak Farms, and got RAVE reviews on the Western BBQ buffet (the ribs were amazing and fell off the bone). For our wedding, we did passed hors devours (bacon wrapped scallops, philly cheesesteak egg rolls, mini potato pancakes, lobster on brioche, and watermelon feta a... Read more

  • Vinwood was an absolute pleasure to work with. My husband and I just had our wedding at the Hellenic Center and are thrilled to have chosen Vinwood. The chef ensured we were taken care of throughout the evening as well as Bridget; who stayed the entire event to ensure things went smoothly. Our guests have not stopped complimenting how delicious the food was. Bridget, specifically, was patient and incredibly helpful throughout the entire planning process. Vinwood has been in the business a long time; making it easy for a bride to trust they know exactly how to make events memorable and delicious. I highly recommend them!!

  • Vinwood catered my daughter's wedding at Smith Barn in Peabody last Saturday and we couldn't have been more pleased with their service, their professionalism, their attention to detail (e.g. asking each guest to confirm their meal choice before serving), and, most of all, the quality of the food, including the appetizers and the main meal. We had a guest count of 150 and without exception I received upwards of 100 of them tell me how great the appetizers and meal were, especially the fact that both were served very warm, as if made in your kitchen for a small family party. Most of my large gathering experiences usually have the food served, at most, lukewarm. We were especially pleased with the service that Vinwood's on-site coordinator Barbara provided. Barbara and the entire staff were phenomenal, and again, I received numerous exceptional comments from our guests. Barbara provided me the opportunity to speak to the Head Chef and his staff at the end of the evening. While thanking an... Read more

  • Vinwood catered our wedding at Misselwood. It was the best decision! They include everything in one cost per person based on the which was helpful. I was so excited we got to pick so many appetizers, and they serve them until people don't want them anymore- they don't limit to an amount based on guest list. The appetizer choices were extensive and the 8 we chose blew everyone away. Everyone also complimented Vinwood in terms of getting platted dinners to all 132 guests in a matter of minutes, and that the food was phenomenal. Vinwood includes nice touches such as chocolate dipped fruit dessert, coffee and tea, and complimentary seasonal beverages pre-ceremony for guests such as fancy lemonade or iced teas. Hands down an amazing experience- Gary was so great to work with and made sure everything ran on time day of. I can't recommend them enough!

  • Vinwood Caterers was one of the options for our venue, and we chose them based on value and the type of food we were looking for. Let me start by saying that the food was absolutely delicious, and their overall presentation was just wonderful. We worked with Gary and Barbara for our wedding who were both very friendly, offered a lot of good advice, and were accommodating with our last minute additions. Barbara was even there the day of the wedding to help set up our decorations and make sure everything went smoothly. One thing to note is that they do not offer food tastings for individuals, but for large groups only (they cost money and you may not even get to taste what you are ordering!). This made me a little nervous going in, but the food was very good regardless. Majority of my correspondences throughout the planning process were with Gary via email. He can be a little slow to respond, and sometimes I had to follow up with him several times to get answers to my question... Read more
