We are truly privileged to have chosen Table of Contents catering for our September wedding, as the decision to use them turned out to be one of the best that we made and we would strongly encourage anyone to do the same for any event that you might be planning. The quality and presentation of the food was truly exceptional and the level of service from the friendly, highly professional and hard working staff at the event was beyond our expectations.

It was a daunting experience to have to choose a caterer from the many companies available, however after meeting with Linda DeFranco Barck and Stephen Barck we easily knew we were with the right company. We immediately loved Linda and the bride felt an immediate kinship with her. Linda was also a joy to work with throughout the process and her impressive skill at organizing the many facets of the event for us together with the answering of all our questions and wishes prior to the wedding was unparalleled. And when we met Stephen we were impressed with his love for his delectable creations and the desire to give us exactly what we needed to make our event a success. Stephen has a tremendous artistic flair for the presentation of food, ranging from a heart shaped beet in each guest's salad, and the decorative embellishments on the passed hors d'oeuvres, to the perfect execution and flavor on an absolutely divine entre. We really felt as though both Linda and Stephen were a part of our wedding throughout the organization and on the day itself and that they cared strongly about ensuring that our wedding was a great success. They and their staff, including the manager on duty Kathy, really demonstrated this throughout the wedding by the attentive service to us and our families.

We may not have been exactly "easy" guests to work with, we had invited guests from the UK and across the US and we wanted to offer them all an experience of the type of quality and local food that can be found in Boston and from the New England, and enlisted TOC to help. We asked them to make a signature cocktail with very short instructions, a Fall themed menu using only local produce and we had a special request that our 140 split entres of beef tenderloin and lobster scampi be presented in such a way that each of the lobster portions were served in small lobster shells to give people the "New England feel". I'm surprised Linda even responded to our email, but she did with enthusiasm and she was happy to accommodate and encourage our eccentric and restricting requests. When we told Linda that our event was going to be held in a tent and that her kitchen would need to be hooked up to hoses and generators, she did not even flinch and gave us considerable comfort that she would be able to provide whatever dish we wanted with no limitations due to our chosen reception site.

The cocktail hour was elegant and the service was run smoothly by Table of Contents so that none of our guests were ever left waiting for drinks or hors d'oeuvres. We had a few guests go absolutely wild for the fish n' chip hors d'oeuvres and the kitchen was quick to bring more to satisfy. Also during the cocktail hour there was also a truly wonderful gentleman assigned to assist us (the bride and groom), and while we were taking our many pictures in the neighboring field he would come by with new drinks and appetizers and fetch any item that we fancied. There was another example of excellent service during the seated meal when two of my aunts needed to have their entrees kept warm while they were momentarily out of their seats -the server removed their meals while they were gone and replaced their meals at their seats just moments before they returned to ensure that they had a perfectly presented and warm entree.

Even three weeks after the wedding, we still have numerous friends (including the band) telling us that this was the best food and service that they had ever experienced at a wedding and many people have asked for the contact details for their engaged friends to use for weddings as well as for other events. We have even learned of our dear vegetarian friend, who after tasting her entre leapt to her feet to praise the chef on his creation, stating it was the best meal she had ever had.
Tables of Content has won a number of awards which factored into our search when we were looking around Boston for a caterer to use for our wedding and we must add ourselves to their list of admirers. Tables of Content singlehandedly made our wedding the talk of the town, the awe of our friends and neighbors, and the celebration of our lifetimes. Please accept this as our heartfelt & glowing testimonial, as emphatic a recommendation as we can provide, that they surpassed our expectations and made our wedding an incredible and unforgettable experience for us and our guests!

First of all I would like you to know that everything was beyond my expectations.

The clam chowder had to be the best I have ever had in my 42 years of being a New Englander.

Everyone mentioned not only on how delicious everything was, but how beautifully it was arranged.

So, thank you for making me look good!
Please thank your staff as well...they were great!

I have worked with Tables of Content for several years for work related receptions and events. As a result, they were the natural choice for me when choosing a caterer for my son's bar mitzvah and my mother's 80th birthday. The food is always wonderful, and the staff are the best. My husband and I have especially enjoyed the handful of events they've done in our home. Instead of that pre-party frenzy and greeting guests in a sweat, we were able to sit and relax with no worries, AND NO CLEAN UP. It's devine.

I would recommend them highly.
