My husband and I got married this past March at the Cambridge Multicultural Arts Center and we were so impressed by Kristin and her team at Capers.
We had researched tons of caterers extensively before choosing Capers. We attended 6 tastings in total from different companies and Capers was definitely a step up from the rest, in terms of both quality of food and value. It was also the company that we felt understood us the most. After deciding on Capers, we found that Kristin was very responsive to our requests and suggestions, and really did everything she could to execute our vision, including helping us set up our own dessert table and transforming a bare arts center into a grand ballroom complete with gold chivari chairs and candles throughout.
We received tons of compliments on the food, which was definitely one of the most important things to me! The passed hors d'oeuvres were so unique and special - mini lobster rolls, grilled cheese batons with tomato soup shooters, their list is endless!
If you work with Capers, know that you're working with an experienced team that produces high calibre food, provides exceptional service, and helps to make your wedding vision come true!

We used Capers Catering for our wedding, and we have nothing but good things to say about them. When we did our tasting, the chef was very accommodating with our preferences/needs. The food was amazing, and we knew right away that we wanted to use Capers for our wedding. Throughout the wedding planning process, we worked with Kristin O'Connor and she was amazing at knowing even the smallest details about the venue. It made the planning process so much easier, and she made sure that everything would be setup smoothly for the wedding. On the wedding day, Kristin overlooked the setup, and made sure that the day went as planned. Of course, the food was delicious, and all the guests were amazed with the food. We highly recommend Capers!

Capers Catering catered our wedding that took place on July 27, 2013 at the Courageous Sailing Center in Charlestown, MA.
From beginning to end of the wedding process, Capers was amazing to work with. Kristin O'Connor was our catering coordinator who alongside her amazing chef, John and her team, Kate and Dulce who were there with us to celebrate the big day allowed for the day-John, my husband and our families could not have been happier with the way everything went on the Big Day.
The food was fantastic, the set-up of the tent was gorgeous, the service was amazing-honestly can not say enough great things.
Although I do not plan on having another wedding (sad because it truly was the happiest day of our life!) I will absolutely use them when I have a special event that needs a full service caterer like Capers.
Thank you all you made our wedding amazing!

I loved everything about working with Capers--from the initial tasting to dessert at the end of the wedding itself. Kristin was a joy to work with, the menu was wonderful and fun to put together, and everything looked, smelled, and tasted exactly like we wanted it to. They even successfully pulled together a last-minute request for housemade ravioli by one of the groom's mothers ;-) and they were amazing!

Capers catered my wedding reception in September, and I have nothing but positive things to say about this vendor! I worked with Kate - she is wonderful and made the planning process so easy! She was always reachable by phone or email and responded promptly to every small question or request. Capers makes an honest effort to understand the type of event that you want to create, and to get to know your personal style and preferences so that their services and product truly align with what you wanted. At the tasting (a private scheduled session), Kate and the chef very kindly showed what they had to offer and made suggestions, but were in no way overbearing or pushy. They were respectful and mindful of our budget throughout the experience. At the walk-through meeting, Kate made sure that we discussed and finalized every detail - and then on the big day, everything went just as planned! The Capers staff provided an excellent service and effortlessly blended into the goings-on. I haven't even mentioned the FOOD, which was absolutely delicious and our guests loved it! Everything was prepared just as well as at the tasting. We had passed hors d'oeuvres and a barbecue buffet. The food was really nicely presented on platters that were continuously refilled with more fresh, hot food. The service was really timely - everything was on schedule and seamless. I will definitely recommend Capers and will look to them if I need a caterer again!
