  • I wish I could give them a 10 star review. Working with Zesty Gourmet for my wedding went so smoothly. Leanne was fantastic to work with. She answered all of my questions in a timely and professional manner. If I needed help making a decision, she would help me with it. I have never planned a wedding before, so I had no idea what I was doing. My dad and I both have a gluten allergy. I found it to be somewhat difficult to find a company that could guarantee gluten free appetizers and main meal. There was one item for the appetizers and one for the main course that was not gluten free, but I specifically picked them out so I knew not to eat them. However, I could have done everything gluten free if I wanted to. The tasting was very professional. The staff answered all of our questions and would inform us which items me and my dad could not eat. The servers at the wedding were professional as well. Me and my groom were taken care of very well. If we needed something, whether it be a drink... Read more

  • We sampled a number of caterers, and were surprised to find the place with the food we liked the best, was also the most reasonably priced. When you feel like you've gotten a deal, you keep waiting for the catch... It never came. Leanne was super responsive and easy to work with, when they didn't have an item during our tasting she repeatedly invited us back to the manor to try more items. She made the catering side of the wedding painless and easy. No bride likes surprises from their vendors the day of the wedding, in my case Leanne surprised us with an extra side, and coffee service that weren't ordered, but were very much appreciated. When we'd messed up one of the rental counts, she was there with back up supplies. My guest were constantly commenting on how nice her serving staff were. When the bar was slow, the bartenders were out in the party making sure everyone was good checking to see what they could take care of. There was no typical disaffected college student to be found.

  • Zesty did the catering for my best friend's wedding and were a dream to work with. Leanne and Mark are super nice and friendly and very easy to communicate with. Their prices were more than fair, especially since the food was amazing. The charcuterie board at the cocktail hour was fantastic, and probably the best wedding hors d'oeuvres I've ever had. The dinner was great, on time, and all service was smooth. At the end of the wedding, I dreaded all the clean up I expected to have to do as maid of honor, but came back into the venue to see they had worked with the rental company and basically cleaned everything up for me already!

  • We used Zesty for our August Wedding at the Manor at Airmont. We were introduced to the food and the family at our tasting. We loved every single thing we tasted that day – from apps, to drinks, to main meal, to dessert. The peach cobbler and chocolate chip cookies are the best I have ever had! They were very good about working with us if we wanted a specific type of meat and customizing to our needs. The day of the wedding was above and beyond what we expected. The cocktail hour effort and presentation was a décor element just sitting there. I also had multiple people come up to me and say how good their meal was. We loved having Zesty take care of us on our special day!

  • Zesty Gourmet catered our 135 person wedding and we absolutely loved the food and the service they provided. From the delightful time we had at our initial tasting to the food being served to our friends and family at our wedding, they went above and beyond to make sure our "tastes" were satisfied. The original menu that was in our contract was not exactly what we had in mind for our wedding since we tend to like interesting twists on classic recipes. We discovered some amazing options during our tasting and they worked very closely with us to adjust the menu to make it exactly what we wanted. Not only were we satisfied, our family and friends raved about the food at our wedding afterwords. We cannot recommend them enough!

  • Zesty Gourmet was amazing! I needed them last minute (2 weeks before the wedding), and they did such an amazing job in helping me get everything sorted. During the wedding, the servers were AMAZING! They were so nice & so attentive during the whole night! I would recommend them to anyone!!

  • LeAnne and her husband and the Zesty Gourmet team provided amazing service and quality. Everyone at our wedding commented on how great the food was (especially the beef with madeira sauce and peach cobbler!) and they truly feel like family. Throughout the whole process, LeAnne was very responsive and able to make additions based on what we wanted (bacon wrapped dates for an app!). The mangers and staff who were with us for the whole of the reception felt like guests and did everything with a smile and joy. I hope they enjoyed being there as much as we enjoyed having them. As a small, local business, they handled everything with the utmost professionalism that you'd expect from a big company. They source their food locally and the love they put into their service can truly be felt. We are so grateful for everything they provided to make our wedding day a success!

  • We hired Zesty Gourmet to cater our 130 guest summer wedding after finding them online, and couldn't have been happier with them. John and Leanne were extremely pleasant to work throughout the whole process and really catered to us. They were so accommodating and open minded when it came to what we wanted. They provided us with a delicious cocktail hour spread, salads, dinner and peach cobbler for dessert, which I would highly recommend! Everything was wonderful and all of our guests really honestly enjoyed the food. Their staff was also very pleasant to work with. I would highly recommend Zesty Gourmet to anyone for any type of event and I hope to be able to use them again in the future!

  • Yum! That pretty much sums up Zesty Gourmet. We tasted lots of different caterers and immediately fell in love with the BBQ themed items we tasted at Zesty Gourmet. Leanne and Jon are a pleasure and we really enjoyed the time they spent with us to ensure our wedding went off with no mishaps. Our guests raved about the food and are still talking about the cedar plank salmon. The service and the food we received from Zesty Gourmet was top notch and would highly recommend them.

  • We found Zesty Gourmet through an ad on craigslist, and I was immediately blown away by Leann (owner) who took the time to speak with me on the phone about how their services would work with my small budget. It was like talking to a good friend who just happened to have years and years of food experience. Then I got a chance to work with Solitaire, who manages the logistical side of the business. Solitaire was the most responsive, professional, and thoughtful person I worked with through the entire wedding planning process. She offered great input, dealt with all of my crazy e-mails, and was honest with me about every detail. When considering other catering companies, we never saw the openness that we saw with Zesty Gourmet. We even had a company that tacked on an extra $1000 in the contract for no identifiable reason. With Zesty Gourmet, we were invited into Leann and John's home for a tasting and were always treated with love and respect. When it came down to the wedding day, ... Read more

  • I was excited to work with Zesty because I had read great things about them and after meeting Leanne and the chef in person at our tasting, was pleased with their politeness, willing to cooperate and their food. However, things went downhill from there. When we adjusted our guest count 4 weeks before the wedding, they said we had to pay a $500 change fee even though the contract stated we were allowed to change our count 4 weeks before the wedding date. After that was resolved (after much painful back and forth communication), there were many issues dealing with the rental company they suggested (Ashburn Rentals). They did not communicate with each other about rental numbers and changes like they said they would, and this miscommunication lasted all the way up to the morning of the wedding when there weren't enough champagne flutes present. To top it off, the service and food quality was horrible. It took an extremely long time for everyone to get food, there was no order to how they w... Read more
