We booked Caribbean Caterers for our wedding, and I am SO glad we did. They were incredibly helpful leading up to the day with keeping everything on track and communicating with us very promptly and transparently. The day of, we got so many compliments from our guests on the food, service, and decorations! Every step of the way, they were incredibly professional, friendly, and responsive. Would most definitely recommend!

Have you ever been to Disney? If so, you know the feeling of smiling all day. You know that all the cares in the world have disappeared for a few hours. 16 September 2017, Caribbean Caterers was our Disney. The Team, Christina Burkeholder, Candace Spencer, and Gillian de Souza, were everything in the catering world that Disney is for children and adults. I first came across Caribbean Caterers when I attended one of those wedding events with my cousin's friend; she was preparing for her wedding and Caribbean Caterers were one of the venders at the event. I tried the jerk chicken, Keisha had the bread pudding, and I had another sample of the jerk chicken with the bread pudding. Once the date was set for our wedding I contacted them...I did not contact any other company because I was set on having CARIBBEAN CATERERS! Christina was my original point of contact and was welcoming, accommodating, and had an ear to listen when I changed from the first venue and was having a meltdown.Ms. Gillian, was with us the entire time she made me feel as if I was the only wedding that was taking place. She has a warm heart, patient, has a listening ear, and remained professional at all times. When suggestions were needed she was always full of ideas. I was a DIY bride and didn't really have a budget for food but knew I didn't want to spend every single dollar that was in my savings account, and she didn't take advantage of me not knowing the exact amount of money we wanted to spend. Ms. Gillian is also had to deal with the groom whom is very cautious of what money is being spent and where.Candace! Candace! Candace! I'm sure there are other people within the company that can do exactly what Candace did for our wedding to yours but there is only Candace. Candace hit the ground running. She is friendly, was knowledgeable about my event, and on the day of she nailed everything that she was supposed to! Every hiccup thrown her way she managed. Full review on yelp

I wish I had enough words to talk about how amazing my experience was working with Ms. Gillian and Caribbean Caterers. From the very first time I met them, I was completely sold and choosing this business was the best thing my husband and I did for our wedding! When we met Ms. Gillian she was doing a wedding close to where we lived and invited us to check out the decor. We were inmediately impressed and booked before even tasting the food! My husband and I have since talked about how crazy we were for doing that, but when you know, you just know. During the tasting, we were so impressed with the food that we changed our initial menu to make sure it matched our experience. EVERYONE raved about the food! EVERYONE loved the linens and decor! Working with Ms. Gillian was like working with an aunt. She was loving, honest, clear and organized - but always made us laugh! I honestly can't say enough about Caribbean Caterers. I'm sad my year with them has ended and hoping they offfer cooking classes so I can learn to make those delicious dishes soon! Folks will be talking about the food at your wedding for years- it's just that great!

My Fiancée's parents and I met with Gillian and Christina this past Saturday. We had trouble locating a reliable and professional caterer to assist us in our quest to offer fusion cuisine at our upcoming wedding. Gillian and Christina were a breathe of fresh air. They were both very professional, kind and understanding to our needs. Gillian was very culturally inclined and made me feel comfortable with her understanding of Puerto Rican and Pakistani cuisine. Christina is very sweet and attentive. She was assisted Gillian with notating all our needs. They both gave their undivided attention for over two hours as we discussed our menu with them. During this time they offered us some pineapple/guava juice, bread pudding rum sauce, Caribbean styled rice and meat patties. Everything was absolutely delicious!! We are waiting on a price quote and official food tasting with them in the coming weeks. I will update my review as we progress along. So far my Fiancée's parents and I are very pleased with their service!

Caribbean Caterers were amazing. The food is great and Gillian DeSouza is very professional and extremely enjoyable to work with. Gillian did an amazing job of making sure all the details of the wedding came together perfectly and I am so happy that we choose them to cater our wedding day. I highly recommend them and will definitely use their services in the future. Thank you Gillian and Caribbean Caterers!

We could not have selected a better caterer for our wedding than Caribbean Caterers. Upon meeting Gillian and her assistant Roger for the first time, I was struck by how warm and inviting she and her team were and how comfortable she made my husband and I feel at the start of our planning process. We felt that Gillian and Roger were as personally invested in and excited about the success of our event as we were. As our plans evolved, Gillian and Roger provided us with the highest level of service and attention and used the breadth of their experience to advise us through our key decisions on food, décor, budget, setup, and scheduling. Our wedding ceremony and reception were breathtaking, truly the best day of our lives. Working within our budget, Gillian captured our vision for simplicity and elegance and set up the ceremony and reception spaces to complement the natural beauty of the lawn and the natural elegance of the reception hall with its warm wood floors, high ceilings, and exposed brick walls. To this day, our guests are still raving about the how delicious and memorable the food was, which is especially meaningful to me as we chose the menu to honor my deceased Jamaican father. Because we held our ceremony and reception in the same venue, a lot of coordination had to go into set-up, breakdown, and the movement of our guests, but Gillian and her team pulled it all off seamlessly and effortlessly. Knowing that the day’s details were in expert hands, my husband and I were able to relax and focus on taking in our beautiful, unforgettable day. My husband and I will be eternally grateful to Gillian and her team for making our day so perfect.

I had the pleasure of using Caribbean Caterer for my wedding cocktail hour and reception hosted at the Newton White Mansion. The customer service and attention to detail that they displayed was top notch! From the very beginning when we met with sales manager/coordinator (Gillian) we loved this company. Gillian's energy and warmth is what drew us in. The office assistant, Roger was a pleasure to work with as well. We had tried several catering companies (tastings) but once we attended the tasting at CC and experienced the bold flavors and style we decided we MUST have them cater our wedding. As part of our wedding package they included all of the linens and table arrangements and that really helped with our budget. Although we had to make several last minute changes and additions, CC was very flexible. I appreciated their honesty, professionalism, and friendly customer service throughout the entire process. 2 Thumbs up for Caribbean Caterers! I would definitely recommend them to others.

This is the 2nd time we've had Caribbean Caterers cater events - once for my bday party during which time they delivered the food and we served it and the second time was for my husband's surprise 50th bday party. For my husband's party, we opted for a full service cocktail event with heavy hors doevres. Gillian has been a joy to work with both times, offering suggestions for the menu items and remaining flexible. During the event, although she was not onsite, her staff was professional and courteous and left the venue spotless when they left. The bartender even came back afterwards to remind me that I had additional unused alcohol that was stored in a closet (I would not have known otherwise) which allowed me to return the unused alcohol which saved me a few hundred dollars. I would definitely use them again for future events.

I will never forget the one question I was asked by Gillian during my consultation. "What is the one thing I want my guest to walk away from receptions saying?" I told her I wanted them to say the food was fabulous. Well I got that and more. I am still getting emails and text messages on how great the food was. I had the best wedding ever. Caribbean Caterers has a customer for life. Thanks again Gillian for keeping it stress free and professional. Love you guys.......

We did not want your typical run-of-the-mill wedding food and we couldn't have selected a better vendor than Caribbean Caterers (CC) to deliver on that vision! CC paid meticulous attention to detail, offered a beautiful display and a gracious and flexible staff. The food was scrumptious and they were a complete joy all the way around to work with.
