Bourassa Catering did a great job for the 100th Anniversary of UNICO at the Palace Theater in Waterbury in early October. For event patrons just coming inside, the appetizer table with crudité, antipasto and bruschetta had a lot of variety. Waitstaff brought around other apps like BBQ meatballs, chicken skewers and stuffed mushrooms. (The mushrooms were delicious. Wish they'd come by more than once.)Their carving station with roasted pork loin, herb crusted Bistro steak with fresh chimichurri and garlic mashed potatoes had moist flavorful meat and a good texture to their potato side. Their pasta station had two penne dishes with red sauce or pesto. Both were correctly composed. Staff at their stations knew the food they were serving if asked and were polite and professional. Based out of Wallingford they serve a wide area whether an intimate dinner party, large wedding or corporate meeting.

Our best move in planning a 60-person family celebration was choosing Bourassa to cater the event, because they made everything else easy. Great food? Check. Friendly, efficient service? Check. Special requests? No problem. Our event planner, Bianca, has a can-do attitude and was a pleasure to work with. The food was plentiful and so good that many guests went back for seconds and thirds. (We chose a cheese platter for starters, then a bbq menu with extras like shrimp kabobs and fresh corn on the cob.) The staff were efficient, friendly, and endlessly accommodating to our guests. When it was time for a toast, champagne flutes appeared as if by magic on every table.We'd interviewed several caterers before making our choice. Bourassa's pricing was reasonable, and our conversation with Bianca assured us that, rather than try to fit our event into a pre-conceived box, they would work with us to personalize the event and make it exactly what we wanted. They delivered everything they promised and more.

I can't say enough how impressed we were with Bourassa Catering at our Sunday event. Bourassa provided catering for a 150-person nonprofit fundraiser that I was working in New Haven. All of their offerings were incredible and plentiful: three varieties of soup, crudité, a hefty cheese platter, and multiple dessert outlay. Many of our guests went back for seconds, thirds, and even fourths!In addition to their food being great, their staff was top notch. They arrived on time and were always accessible by phone leading up to the event. Overall, Bourassa made us look good and our lives easy.We will definitely be working with them again.

Bourassa was incredible! We couldn’t have asked for a better experience for our wedding caterer. Bianca was a pleasure to work with. She was easy to get in touch with and so kind. All of the food was delicious! We were receiving compliments all night long. Our captain Delores was amazing the day of our event. She made sure to check in with us multiple times throughout the night. Our event manager Catherine was an absolute joy! She went above and beyond to make sure we were having the best time with the biggest smile on her face. Our drinks were always suddenly magically full :) We highly recommend using them for your event!!

Bourassa was the best choice we made early on for our wedding. Bianca was an absolute dream to work at, so good at her job and so caring and enthusiastic. We had calls with a handful of other caterers and Bourassa was by far the best in terms of responsiveness, kindness, options, and pricing.In terms of planning, I couldn't have loved working with their team more and each call/email/meeting had us more excited for the big day.The food was incredible, a bountiful mezze spread, an abundance of passed apps that were hot and fresh, and dinner service that was flawless. They even took care of details for us with outside dessert, moving for rain on the big day, and ensuring everything went smooth with other vendors.Could not recommend working with their team more- Thank you Bianca and Bob for making our day amazing!!

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 leftovers.They also did a great job with the ceremony site setup, linens, and all the logistical elements. Highly recommend

Bourassa Catering did our wedding. The guests commented very positively on the quality of the food (we thought it was very good too), and the servers were situationally aware to our needs and helpful. Bourassa Catering was also very available for communication throughout the wedding planning process.

Bourassa catered my daughter's wedding this past weekend. What an exceptional experience from beginning to end. Natalie was so professional and insightful in all her questions and suggestions. The chef and waitstaff were so efficient and friendly. Our guests loved the food and many asked about the caterers. I'm so thankful we were able to sign with them.

Bourassa Catering & Events did it once again!! Bourassa is one of Redefined Elegance Event Planners, LLC "Premier Caterers". Their selections of food and drink are amazing. Their staff is very professional, courteous and on pointe every time. Bianca is "Amazing" and doesn't miss a beat when planning and creating menus with their Clients. Kudos Bourassa; our Client was very, very happy!!!

We used Bourassa for our daughter’s wedding, the food and drinks were excellent. The staff was friendly and professional. They brought together all the details on the day of the wedding and we walked into to a beautiful backyard wedding that felt like we were at a venue. Thank you all so much!!

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 everything 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!

Made the best decision to use Bourassa Catering for our gathering after my father's funeral. When we arrived back at the house, everything was set up and ready to go. Staff was pleasant, professional and very attentive to any of our needs. Food was amazing and everyone was impressed with the quality and presentation. Once everyone had eaten, they quietly cleaned up, packed up, shared their condolences to all of us and left. Would highly recommend them for any event.
