I really enjoyed working with Bourassa, which is owned by the chef Bob Bourassa. They were responsive, flexible, and their menu options were clear/not confusing, and they were not trying to trick you or upsell you on anything.
The food at the ...
wedding was excellent, and we got a lot of comments about it. Multiple guests said: "we usually don't remember/notice the food at weddings, but the food here is so good that it really stands out." While many couples don't have time to eat at their weddings, both my husband and I paused to enjoy our dinner and take home the delicious leftovers.
They also did a marvelous job with the ceremony site setup, linens, and all the logistical elements. Highly recommend

still talking about it as "the best wedding food we've ever had", and trust me, there's been a lot of weddings lately!) The entire staff was beyond amazing; friendly, detail oriented, efficient, and full of energy that really helped make the day. For the amazing service and food we got, I feel like we underpaid! I cannot recommend them enough.
Thank you so much Bourassa for making our special day even more special!

We used Bourassa catering for our wedding and they did an absolutely phenomenal job! Bob helped us design a menu that would fit with our outdoor, end-of-summer wedding and was beyond easy to work with. He accommodated all of our requests and ev...
erything tasted absolutely amazing (many guests told us it was the best "wedding food" they'd ever had!) Not only was the food delicious, it looked beautiful too. Bourassa's staff was so friendly and helpful. They took care of everything we needed and made us feel so comfortable and stress-free on the big day. We also really appreciate how dedicated Bourassa Catering is to Covid safety. The plexiglass barriers in front of the buffet were subtle and sturdy, exactly what we needed. We would absolutely recommend Bourassa Catering for any event, and especially if you're having an event during Covid and want to serve your guests excellent food as safely as possible!

nd the entrees were also phenomenal (filet of sole and chicken cordon bleu). All the staff were absolutely professional and completely adept. Our coordinator, Patti was incredible. Im super A type and had a lot of tiny detail requests, all of which Patti took care of, and none were too small or insignificant. I would definitely recommend Bourassa and Patti for your event.

Bourassa was delightful to work with. We worked closely with Patti to set the menu and bar, and she helped us manage our tent and dining rentals. She was very attentive and made the whole day run smoothly, even doing little things like asking...
what sort of food she should save us from dinner and setting plates out for us so we didn't have to wait in line. Can't speak highly enough about her.
The food was also delicious. Our taco bar was a huge hit, and Bourassa was completely on board when we asked to do a collection of desserts (pies, cookies, etc) instead of cake. They suggested some items, and also were happy to work with our personal requests/recipes.

We honestly can't say enough good things about Bourassa Catering. We had nearly given up on finding a caterer until we met Bob and Catherine, but from the minute we spoke to them we knew we were in good hands. From a communications perspective,...
they were both incredibly kind, responsive, and organized. They were reasonably priced and took time to listen to what we were thinking, explain everything, and answer questions. Most importantly though, the food was AMAZING! From the tasting we did with them to the stationary apps to the buffet, everything was beautifully presented, delicious, and enough for an army. We did a BBQ menu and not only did people get seconds and compliment the food but the leftovers they packed for us sustained our family for a week and no one got tired of them - that good! The day-of staff were all great and cleaned up well very quickly. Friends and family who work in the events industry raved about them and we have already recommended them to others. Thanks Bob and Catherine!

rassa. They are a delight to work with, super responsive to every question and request, and of course "grand masters" in the kitchen. They nailed the Bride and Groom's special culinary requests and together with their superb staff delivered a perfect party. Our guests contacted us weeks after the wedding to complement the food, the service, and even the staff that were so accommodating. I highly recommend Bourassa Catering as the best ever!

d the staff. Our wedding was at our home and they were incredibly respectful, neat, and delightful to work with.
Bob created a menu for our no-seated-dinner backyard cocktail reception that was ideal. The team set up a hydration station for guests at the ceremony (on the front lawn), which came in handy because it was warm out. After the ceremony there were plentiful passed hors d'oeuvres - we picked out 9 from their lengthy options and we asked for a custom appetizer, which they were happy to do. They then transitioned into food stations - cheese and crudite, meat carving station, pasta and salad station. There was plenty of food to go around without it being a stuffy sit down or buffet meal.
The bars were well stocked and Bob took care to order everything we asked for. We requested local beers, pinot noir and sauvignon blanc not just the standard cabernet and chardonnay, and had Tito's and Hendrick's since my husband prefers those brands. Believe me, no one was thirsty!
One of the servers made sure that the bride and groom were well taken care of - she brought us food and always made sure our glasses were full!
The team cut and served our wedding cake at no extra cost (Bourassa doesn't provide cakes). And even helped clean up chocolate cake from the floor when my husband encouraged the kids to "smash" the groom's cake!
What I was even more amazed with occurred after the wedding and reception. We had asked the caterer to leave some leftovers for any late-night guests who remained. I guess we ate everything the caterer brought, so they rummaged in our fridge and arranged plates of cheese and deli meat, snacks, etc. for us to snack on. They left bottles of wine and beer as well.
In walking our lawn and property in the days afterward, there were only a handful of swizzle sticks that hadn't been picked up. Even their clean up was impeccable!
I cannot recommend Bourassa enough! They were fantastic and at a reasonable price. Thank you!

My wife and I used Bourassa Catering for our outdoor wedding reception on 9/27/2014, of about 90 people. They were fantastic. We built our wedding up from scratch, using our house as the reception venue. During the initial meeting, Bob listened...
to our likes and dislikes, and then created a menu and proposal that fit our taste buds and wallets.
From that point, we worked with Natalie on putting the rest of the reception together. From the start we had a really good idea of what we wanted, and she worked through any changes that we threw at her - they were extremely flexible with our requests. We had some vegetarians and vegans and were able to create a separate plate for these guests. They were fantastic to work with and conscious about our budget through the whole process. They have a great rapport with other vendors for seating, tents, etc. They provided a “one stop shop” for all things an outdoor wedding would need.
On the day of, the team provided exceptional service. The entire staff was friendly and professional to us and our guests. They took care of all setup (tables looked fantastic) and breakdown, keeping our venue clean
The food was phenomenal. Our guests to this day, still talk about all of the food (appetizers and dinner) they had at our reception and how delicious it was. We could not recommend Bourassa Catering enough.
