  • Everything was wonderful:  Maureen was easy to work with, she had many ideas for interesting food, her staff were professional and friendly.  Almost every person I talked to after the party commented on the innovative and delicious food; the Asian noodles served in takeout boxes with chopsticks and the pulled pork sliders seemed to be favorites.  We had chocolate mousse with whipped cream for dessert, so good.  I highly recommend Maureen!

  • I was planning to host a sit-down dinner for about 16 on behalf of the board of a small non-profit, but because of my schedule (and as it turned out, being very ill right before the dinner), I decided to order food instead of making it or organizing volunteers to bring dishes. I checked here on Angie's List for a caterer who would provide just the food and not room rental, servers, etc. and came across Russo's. I like their produce and prepared foods but didn't realize they had a catering service. Their basic catering menu is on-line which allowed me to figure out whether they could handle our various special diet requirements--vegan, vegetarian, food-allergies.
    I worked with Victor to fine-tune the menu and appreciate that he was accurate in estimating quantities we would need for the size of the party. He was knowledgeable, courteous, and made the entire process feel easy. We had planned to pick up the order on the day of the dinner, but at the last minute, we were unable to. Despite the late notice and rush hour traffic, the order arrived on-time--actually a few minutes early--and hot dishes went straight from the heated, insulated container into the oven, and the cold went straight into the fridge. Did I mention the 100 degree weather? And that the poor delivery man had to carry everything up to the third floor? The delivery price was hefty ($50) but was added to the credit card charge and in the end, the service and convenience was worth the charge and the tip to the delivery man.
    The food itself was excellent and reflected well on me as host. I was especially impressed with the crispness and dryness of the salad greens, which indicates care in the kitchen to deliver the freshest ingredients possible. Not many people know about the catering department at Russo's, but I'm now glad to spread the word.

  • Maureen's prior reviews drew me to contacting her and I was not disappointed.  I called Maureen with only 10 days notice for a Saturday afternoon open house for 35 guests including 3 distinct allergies (Gluten, Shellfish and Dairy).  Maureen was extremely prompt in responding.  We brainstormed the menu over the phone and via email and finalized our plan 5 days before the event.  I did not need Maureen to stay during our event but wanted to outsource everything leading up to my guests walking through the door.  I got comfort over the phone that she understood my expectations and she performed flawlessly.  Because the party was an open house style, she was thoughtful about recommending food that would taste good in the first and fourth hour of the party.  We chose beef tenderloin, glazed ham, cream of asparagus soup, roasted root vegetables, haricots vert with a lemon vinaigrette, a charcuterie plate with tapanades and spreads, and breads.  She arrived at our house on time and worked while we were at the baptism. We arrived back 1.5 hours later to a perfectly set up food spread and clean kitchen.  Everyone raved about the food.  We had leftovers (as promised!) and I thought the price was very fair.  

    The food was excellent and service was top notch, but what was also extremely important to me was Maureen's ability to manage our allergy needs.  The Gluten allergy requires very careful food preparation and cleanliness to avoid contamination.  Maureen mentioned that she is actually gluten free at home and thus I was comfortable that she understood how careful we needed her to be.  I highly recommend Maureen and will absolutely consider working with her again.

  • This has been ongoing for 3 months now. There are different meal plans so you have to choose what best suits your purpose. The meals are not what I am generally used to but are flavorful and nutritious and good for you. Just heating up involved and I do not have to cook all the time. A wonderful convenience and healthy for you.

  • When I was planning a birthday party for my husband, I sought bids from three caterers. The prices were comparable for all three. But the first two merely submitted what seemed like their standard menus and seemed satisfied with my description of our property in terms of setting up rented tables and chairs, etc. By contrast, Maureen was over here in a flash. She worked out a layout for the bar and seating, taking into account optimum traffic flow, figured out how she would work in my kitchen, and came up with a creative menu that used locally-grown fresh food in season. People still haven't stopped talking about the wonderful food and the efficient and gracious service by her crew. Recently, when we planned an engagement party for my son and his fiance, naturally I called Maureen. Another hit, again with knockout food and service. She is a wonder!

  • We held a rehearsal dinner for our daughter's wedding, the night before the wedding. All of the relatives on both sides met for the first time. A near miss with a hurricane happened the same day. We first met Maureen during August. She assured us everything would be fine. But we worried. This was a wedding dinner where so many things could go wrong. We needn't have worried. Maureen arranged everything, including the china, glass and silver. The dinner started at 6pm. Maureen and Jose appeared at 4pm. In our somewhat limited kitchen, they pulled together an incredible multi-course dinner. We didn't do a thing. They arranged the tables, seating, and serving stations. They wrapped the silver with cloth napkins. They chilled the soft drinks, wines and beer. Then the graciously served the appetizers, person to person, as we met and talked. When the main courses were ready, they again hosted all of us. The food was incredible, from a mushroom bread pudding to vegetarian lasagna. Our daughter and her to-be are vegetarians, so most of the dinner consisted of incredible vegetarian dishes, with one meat dish. It was so good that even the carnivores didn't notice. I highly recommend Maureen for anyone that wants to have a party and still enjoy it. Ken and Chris Schwaber Lexington, Massachsetts

  • I was looking for a caterer that would provide excellent food and allow me to enjoy the gathering worry-free -- they provided both. They were great about understanding what I wanted and making suggestions. For example, a couple of guests had mild diabetes, so they altered the usual recipe for one of the desserts. They were also great about estimating portions, making suggestions and balancing the menu. They also expertly selected a mixed case of wine and provided it at no markup. They arrived on time with everything they needed. The food was excellent and the service was efficient and unobtrusive. As soon as guests arrived Jeanine was right there to ask them if they would like a drink and made sure everyone had food and drink during the whole event. When they left you couldn't tell they had been there -- the kitchen was clean. I couldn't ask for anything more. I enjoyed the experience so much I'm thinking about having them cater a dinner party for me!

  • It was the most fun I've ever had at one of my own parties because I didn't have to worry about a single thing. She gave out all her card that night, and will probably get a lot of business from it. She deserves every bit of it!

  • The single person (doing setup and cooking) arrived about 90 minutes before serving time. He let me know about a half hour before serving time that he would be 5-10 minutes late. We appreciated the advance notice. When the food was ready, the BBQ ribs and chicken were excellent and the hot dogs, but the cheeseburgers were a bit overcooked. The setup and cleanup went smoothly and was handled properly. They cleaned up well before they left.

  • The whole experience went very well. Maureen was punctual, friendly, professional and very skilled. My guests and I were very pleased and I would highly recommend her to others.
