Quantcast

I contracted with Bourassa Catering and Events for an event of 50 guests on Sunday, 9/13/2015. The food was delicious and visually appealing. Natalie in the office provided guidance on what to select. Two of my guests had dietary restrictions and I was prepared to order addtiional food to accomodate them. Natalie showed me how easily the food I ordered could be easily adapted for my two guests and I didn't incur any additional expense. The waitstaff - Jan and Dolores - were delightful, professional and accomodating. I truly did not lift a finger. They were charming and hospitable with my guests. I hit the jackpot with the decision to go with Bourassa Catering for this event and would recommend them without reservation.

Bourassa Catering & Events is the caterer for you if you're looking to get the most out for your money. Bob will work with you to customize a menu that works for your budget, fits your theme, and WOWs your guests. Bourassa Catering & Events was the caterer for our 300-person wedding (buffet-style) and some of the best compliments we received about them was that there was never a line at the bar and the cocktail hour appetizers were some of the best they ever had (the squash and mushroom empanada was one of the favorites!) Bourassa Catering & Events understands the DIY bride and pays attention to the details! I loved how they displayed the farm fresh grilled vegetables on upside-down wood crates to give the buffet line some charm and dimension. And I cannot say enough about their catering staff! Simply the best! They were professional, courteous, and responsive to the guests and bridal party. They went above and beyond our expectations and took initiative when the opportunity arose.

We had the wedding of our dreams thanks to Bob and Bourassa Catering & Events!

Wow! What a great outfit....from start to finish.The professionalism was apparent the first moment on the phone with Natalie. This woman knows her stuff and the right questions. She spent time with me to determine my goals, then promptly sent an estimate and menus based on those goals. We worked together through the months preceding the rehearsal dinner for 57; Natalie was patient and knowledgable. She thought of things that made such a difference to success of event, but might have been missed without her attention to detail. Natalie was flexible about menu changes and quick responding to questions. I appreciated an updated contract each time we made changes, thereby knowing we were all on the same page. Bob met with me 4 months pre event to look at venue. Bob is also very professional; communication style clear yet low keyed. We walked through the venue and discussed the event from set up to cleanup; certainly calmed my nerves. We all want our special events to be just so.....this lovely group of people work very hard to accomplish it. As for the event, the food and service were spectacular. We opted for a buffet style. Guests loved the food. Set up beautiful, food plentiful, and staff responsive/intuitive at every moment throughout the evening. Again, they knew their stuff...totally professional...yet touched bases with me throughout the evening to make sure my guests and I were happy. Even clean up was a work of art. Wrapped all the leftovers for us to take home.The venue meticulously clean when we left. We were pleased to see Bob Bourassa and wife at our event; it is clear they strive to provide the best possible service to their clients. I would definitely use Bourassa Catering and Events again and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a fabulous catering service!

Bob and his crew were wonderful. I got so many compliments on the food and the service! Bob was also very down to earth, professional, and easy to work with. He suffered through at least 12 contract revisions with me! He also handled all our rentals (chairs, linens, tableware) which was such a relief to me. Everyone was on point and friendly the day of. As my guests were RSVPing, they kept asking me- "can I choose all 3 menu options?" Our wedding was a sit-down brunch, and Bob repeatedly mentioned how fun it was to do something a little different for a wedding menu. This was not the response I received when talking to other vendors. Bob was also able to accommodate all the different allergies and dietary restrictions in our guest list. He even whipped up a custom vegan meal for one of our vegan guests (the menu was not totally vegan). I am so glad Bob handled our wedding and I would recommend him to anyone who wants to work with a total professional.
