    We cannot rave enough about Peg and Rich. From the very beginning, they welcomed us into their home to try their delicious food and were incredibly warm, thoughtful while building our menu and professional through the entire wedding planning. There are so many good things to say I’m not even sure where to start but I’ll go with the food first-

    We wanted to do family style for our wedding dinner and Peg was on top of it from day one. She suggested a butternut squash lasagna and, even after my husband and I both were like “eh, we don’t really like butternut squash” she insisted we try it. It blew us away. We went with this for our main dish and our guests are still talking about it. I cannot recommend it enough!

    In addition, we wanted to have our entire wedding be Vegetarian…which a lot of chefs don’t do a great job with. Peg and Rich helped us come up with the most inventive and delicious menu all without meat. They put so much care and thought into what would make the most sense to serve. We were beyond impressed, as were our guests. We had savory crepes, almond encrusted jarlsberg, grilled asparagus, strawberry shortcake, and the list goes on. Our menu was perfect. The food was served perfectly. We have been to soooo many weddings were the food was pretty blah and you could tell not much thought was put into it….this is not Ate O Ate.

    Aside from their incredible food, Peg has the most wonderful staff. They were so professional, kind and it was clear they had a lot of respect for Peg and Rich and took pride in their job. Even when it started to rain on our outdoor dinner, they were smiling and still having fun while helping the guests get indoors and getting drinks/food over to us. We are so grateful for all their hard work.

    Lastly, I have to thank Peg for helping me do the rentals order. Being that this was our first wedding and first event ever of this size, we had no idea where to begin with how many bar glasses, napkins, flatware etc to order. Peg walked me through the entire process helping me come up with the perfect amount of rentals. She also helped me find a reliable place to rent from. It was so easy working with Peg!!

    I’m sure I’m leaving out more things to be grateful to Ate O Ate for but we could not have been more pleased. If you are looking to blow your guests away with home cooked, delicious and thoughtful food, top notch service and professionalism, and down right good people to work with, then Ate O Ate is for you.

    Thank you Peg and Rich!!!

    Ate-O-Ate provided catering for our June 2-3 2017 wedding weekend. Peg, Rich, and their crew were all excellent and we cannot recommend them highly enough! Peg worked with my husband and I throughout the process not only to plan food and drink menus for both our rehearsal dinner, cocktail hour, and reception that fit our budget and taste, but also did all of the leg work for the necessary rentals for both of our events (which saved us a TON of frustration and stress), to help us find other vendors, and to flexibly work around our schedule for tastings. The versatility of their menu is impressive! For our rehearsal dinner, we did a BBQ menu and our guests were floored by how delicious the entire menu was (even our Southern guests with high expectations for BBQ were pleased!). For our reception, Peg and Rich worked with us to create a menu that was delicious, unique (e.g., watermelon gazpacho starter), and had something for our many guests with dietary restrictions. We have gotten so many compliments on the food at our wedding! Overall, Peg and Rich went above and beyond for us and choosing them as caterers was one of our best decisions made throughout our wedding planning 🙂 We will miss working with them!

    Where do I even begin? Peg & her staff are truly one of a kind in this whirl wind wedding world. In the 18 months leading up to our wedding we got to know Peg as a person & also got to sample the out of this world food AteOAte provides. Peg is one of the kindest, most generous & funniest person we have had the privilege to get to know. We could always count on her no matter how many questions we came up with or changes we decided on.

    Deciding on using AteOAte for our food was not only the easiest decision we made, but the best one as well, as people are still raving about our cocktail hour & family style dinner. Peg & her staff provided exceptional service that will not soon be forgotten. In the moments following our ceremony, Dave & I took a moment before we joined cocktail hour & the staff had provided us with a plate of food from cocktail hour to enjoy & even assisted me multiple times with my wedding dress emergencies.
    There are not enough words to say about the food- once you have a tasting you will understand what we mean. Peg & her husband care so much about the finished product & it truly shows. Our cocktail hour was full of variety & our dinner provided guests with mouth watering options. Guest still ask me who catered our wedding!
    In closing, when our wedding day was over, I gave Peg & big hug & told her she couldn’t get rid of me that easy, that i’d still be e-mailing her. The next day I got the kindest e-mail from Peg, which only reminded me how lucky we were to find AteOAte & Peg, they are a diamond in the rough!! There will never be enough words or praise we could give, trust us, you want this company on your wedding day!!

    Thanks AteOAte!!!!

    After planning a surprise 25th Wedding anniversary party for my wife at the Roxbury Contemporary Hotel, I asked Greg Henderson, the owner of the Roxbury, to recommend a local caterer. With no hesitation, he recommended Ate O Ate Catering, and I’m so happy he did. Peg and Rich and their Ate O Ate staff did a wonderful job and the food was absolutely delicious. They delivered the food at precisely t he requested time, set it all up, and all the guests had to restrain themselves until the food was ready, it smelled so good. Thank you so much to Ate O Ate for making our reception a resounding success. You provide a terrific service and I wish you continued success.
