We had such a wonderful day and the weather held which was fantastic, we honestly couldn't ask for better! I want to say a huge thank you to all the team at Emily's Catering Group for all your efforts and preparation which made our day so special and run without fault. The service was excellent, complete high end professionalism, and the food absolutely exquisite!

I acknowledged Emilys Catering Group in my wedding programs in the hopes that my guests will consider you for future weddings and events. I know that we will.

Tom & I would like to send a quick note of appreciation for everything you’ve done for us. From the moment I first spoke with Cheryl & Rick Kerzner I had a really good feeling about working with Emily’s Catering Group for one of our most important events...our wedding. I remember looking at Tom with a sigh of relief stating “I think we may have found our caterer”. Fortunately, I was correct. Every correspondence was an absolute delight, but as they say, “proof is in the pudding”. During my first phone conversation I explained to Rick how picky I was with not only the quality of food, but the presentation. He listened patiently and then complimented me by saying he loves working with detail oriented people who want perfection because his goal is to create perfection. A couple days later we went for our tasting and were so impressed with his professionalism and DELICIOUS food. Everything was wonderful, but as we were sitting there having a conversation I mentioned liking a certain flavor sauce and within minutes he had his chef whip up the perfect blend...what service! We were having an intimate wedding with 60 people so food was extremely important to us. Our tasting went so well, we decided to hire Emily’s Catering for our rehearsal dinner on Friday night with about 40 guests, our wedding on Saturday and our Sunday brunch with the same number of guests. EVERYONE couldn’t stop raving about the food, the quality, presentation & professionalism of every staff member. We wanted perfection & we got so much more...your service is priceless & we couldn’t be more appreciative. We give Emily’s Catering 5 Stars and are so glad we’ve found our caterers for life, anytime we have an event we want YOU there! I think all our guests feel the same way & we are not easy to please. From the bottom of our hearts, we can not thank you enough for playing such an important role so beautifully for an amazing weekend that will be cherished in our hearts forever.
We attended a wedding last evening, 10/14/2012. The staff, food and service were outstanding. I would highly recommend Emily's Catering!

We chose Emily's for our wedding because they were less expensive than their competitors, the Coordinator we dealt with was professional and their facility in Bristol is impressive. We enjoyed the sample meal Mr. Kerzner prepared for us, and we felt as though we were getting a bargain. Two weeks before our wedding date, the Coordinator left the company. Rick assured us he would act as our coordinator and be present at the wedding to personally oversee everything. He did not show up. He did send a staff member in his place, which was appreciated because I had someone to voice my concerns too, but I should've been focused on our guests. Emily's catering truck rolled in after our guests had arrived. Our 100 guests had to wait while the appetizers, salad and main course were behind schedule. The appetizers and the salad were just OK, and the main course was equivalent to what I would expect from an Applebee's on a busy night. We chose the carving station trio, and all the meat was cold. We also chose the rizzoto martinis (rizzoto served in a martini glass) and it was undercooked, rubbery and also cold. They forgot to bring steak knives, so our guests were sawing away at cold beef with table knives. Fortunately, we didn't let the food bring us down, and all our guests had a wonderful time. I'm writing this review because we were advised to go with a more expensive caterer, and had I read a review like this one, we would've chose somebody else. Good luck!

Rick and Cheryl at Emily's Catering Group were phenomenal....almost beyond what I could ever put into words. From the beginning I asked Rick to create a menu for my Mother's 60th Birthday party. His ideas blew me away! He is truly an artist in the kitchen. The man is a genius with food, presentation and style/service. From the incredible salad (baby greens, candied chestnuts, smoked bacon, bleu cheese, fresh figs w/champagne vinaigrette dressing) which was served with mini cups (individiual) of wild mushroom soup.... to the barbeque beef brisket and chicken with cranberry salsa. OMG!! Pure Yummy! Guests could NOT stop talking about how delicious the food was. AND the wait staff, perfect. They were extremely professional and kept telling me to stop helping. (since I design wedding flowers, I always feel like it's my job to unload and set up)!! So great. I would recommend Emily's to ANYONE! Every little detail was PERFECT! They made our "Autumn in New England" dinner party beyond incredible! AND my last minute request the day of the event, for cornbread to be added. Cheryl said absolutely no problem. The cornbread was melt in your mouth fabulous. (Most guests insisted I ask for the recipe!) Call Rick for your next event. You will be just as impressed as we are!
Upon asking for a quote for my wedding... JUST A QUOTE... I was told that they wouldn't work with me and if I was still interested I should review their Everyday Catering Menu. Thanks for telling me that my wedding is an everyday occurrence! Also, don't brag and pride yourself on being helpful at creating menus when you clearly want your clientele to do it for you. VERY DISAPPOINTED... I had originally heard good reviews, but now as I write my own review, I'm noticing more disappointments.

We hired Emily's to cater our daughters wedding and with only 40 guests it was more of an intimate dinner party than a rock the house reception, so it had to be fabulous food. I can tell you without a doubt it was some of the best food I have ever had at any affair, our guests are still raving. From the first time we met with Rick at the business office to the final event they could not have been more wonderful. The tasting was mouthwatering, they work within your budget, they are a class act with attention to detail. The appetizers were so inventive, presentation in every course was perfect and the staff that worked the night were so pleasant they should have been on the guest list. If you dont use this caterer for whatever you are planning, you might just miss out on a really great dining experience.
We used Emily's for our wedding and were so pleased with the job they did. Service was fabulous, and the food was delicious! Rick and his team got lots of rave reviews from our guests. I hate boring, run-of-the-mill wedding food and it was important to us to avoid that. You will if you use Emily's! We were married at the carousel pavilion at lighthouse point and they took care of everything there. Exactly what you want in a caterer. I definitely recommend them!

Emily's Catering Group is amazing! The food was unique, interesting, and delicious! The wait staff was friendly and professional. I am so grateful to Rick and his talented crew. They really listened when we told them what we wanted and they exceeded our expectations. My guests were raving about the food. Look no further.....Emily's is the best!

We just celebrated our marriage a month ago and Emily's Catering Group made it an absolutely perfect day! Rick and his crew listened to all our requests and really gave us so much more than we asked for:) The food was incredible (I get rave reviews every day!) and the service was impeccable. If you are looking for a caterer, you can't go wrong with Emily's Catering Group!
Rick and his staff did a fantastic job for the wedding. They were very flexible and accommodating with making changes to the menu until it perfectly suited everyone's wishes. The food was delicious--one guest commented that “Wedding food is never good, but this is really good!” The wait staff were friendly and courteous and kept the evening flowing well. As a wedding planner, I thoroughly appreciated their professionalism and would highly recommend Emily's for any event!
Wonderful Experience!
We were married in late August and Rick and his staff at Emily's Kitchen did a terrific job. The food was prepared just as we wanted and everything was super fresh. Rick did a great job in helping us to formulate our menu, coordinate the service for the event, and keep us updated at every step of the way. After being at our fair share of rubber chicken weddings, we knew we wanted something better and Rick exceeded our expectations in every way.
Our wedding was August 26th (2006) and all we can say is that Emily’s Catering gave us 110% of themselves that night. I knew we hired the right caterer ounce we met with chef/owner Rick Kerzner but I was absolutely impressed by the food, service and attention to detail Emily’s provided for my wedding. The food was phenomenal and the staff was awesome! We really could not of had asked for anything better, it was perfect. My guests were so impressed with the food and staff I’ve heard nothing but compliments since.

I helped a friend plan a wedding, and happened upon the website for Emily's Catering. After checking out the menu and talking with Rick, the owner/chef, I hired them to cater the rehearsal dinner. We chose Rick's buffet, which is an absolutely amazing value. He was always pleasant and helpful each time we spoke. The food was nothing short of fantastic. The staff that brought the dinner was on site and set up early, and even though we arrived late, they were pleasant, professional, and the food was kept at the perfect temperature without becoming overdone. I recommend Emily's Catering highly and without reservation.
Beyond Belief
A close friend recommended EMily's for our wedding. She is one of their larger corporate acounts and really enjoys doing business with them so of course, we had to use them. Boy am I glad we did! From the moment we first met Rick, the owner, my (now) husband and I felt completely at ease and comfortable. We had a phenomenal tasting and knew, at that moment, EMily's was the right caterer for us. There was never an unreturned phone call or e-mail . He even sent us a wedding gift before the party! The food, service and attention to detail were second to none. The staff went way above and beyond everything we were promised, and did not ovelook one minute detail. We can not recommend Emily's Catering Group enough.
An Elegant Affair
Emily's Catering exuded class and confidence in preparing culinary delights for our special day. All of our quests were quite delighted in how wonderful all dishes tasted. The presentation was lovely with an added touch of champagne glasses overflowing with sprinkled red rose petals and other fresh flowers. The staff was polite, professional, and accomodating. Rick told us, he would take care of everything and every last detail was handled with special care.
A dream come true
my wedding day could not have been more perfect! It was exactly what I had always dreamed about. I have to tell you that eveything was wonderful and the food was delicious. From the cocktail reception to dessert the staff of Emily's Catering could not have been better. Our first meeting with Rick was so positive and reassuring. He made us feel comfortable with every aspect of our catering plan. The menu selection was abundant and we were very happy with our selection of foods. The waitstaff was also very accomodating and nice to work with. Thank you Emily's for making my dream come true.
