Beacon catered our wedding, and we are so glad we chose them! We wanted a buffet for 75 people, simple but good food (with a somewhat constrained budget). Vicki understood exactly what we wanted, suggested a menu of buffet items, appetizers, and cupcakes, for a very reasonable cost. Of all the caterers that we checked out, they had by far the best tasting food and also the best prices. (Note that their catering menu, unlike their restaurant, is not at all limited to Asian food. They make delicious chicken, fish, pasta, etc.).

The food was phenomenal (we had lots of compliments from our guests, both for the appetizers passed around during cocktails and for the buffet dinner) and the service was very friendly, professional, calm, and flawless. Vicki is exceptionally nice and it was always pleasant to interact with her in the planning stages. We had heard that caterers often give a low first estimate and then tack on extra costs, but Vicki did the opposite, ultimately lowering the price a bit below the original estimate (which we had agreed to) because she apparently ended up with slightly reduced staffing needs. She was very receptive to our desires and did not try to push anything on us (for example when we talked about having a self-serve bar, though in the end we decided to have her servers be bartender and did not regret that decision).

We really could not have been more satisfied with their catering for our wedding!

Beacon an Asian café, the restaurant, is also awesome. Cool décor and delicious Asian food.

Beacon has been our “go-to” restaurant of choice for several years. Consistently excellent and innovative food, great wines, terrific hospitality! When we began planning our wedding, we had no idea they did catering.  Imagine!  We are so lucky they do.

Our experience with Beacon Catering was fantastic, and we are thrilled to have worked with them.  Everything about the experience was superlative.  Vicki spent loads of time with us, planning the menu, talking about what we wanted to create, how the food would work with the “vibe” of our wedding, service options, etc.  Her creativity, calm and care made the process fun.  The staff on-site were amazing; the perfect blend of professionalism and warm enthusiasm that helped make our wedding a moving ceremony and a VERY fun party.  They worked seamlessly with other vendors (rentals, florists, venue) to set up the space exactly the way we wanted it and more.  We were blown away when we saw what Jeffrey, Anita, and the rest of the staff had done with the set-up, linens, flatware, glasses, plates, menus etc.  They created a truly celebratory atmosphere that promised excellent hospitality, and their service fulfilled this promise.  And the food?  Somehow, Kazuto managed to outdo his “usual” extra-ordinary fare with food that was out of this world.  The hand-passed appetizers were wonderful hints of flavors to come, the sit-down dinner was phenomenal, and the bento box desserts were a huge hit.  Guests at our wedding still rave about the food we served, and we are so happy to hear this.  Working with Beacon was a wonderful send off to our lives together, and we thank you all for making our special day so exceptionally memorable.

Dear Vicki,

Just getting back and finally finding a minute to thank you. Beacon and all the wonderful staff members did a super job for our daughter and son-in-law. The fare was so delicious - such a marvelous salad - and the black cod was a tour de force. (I also "stole" most of my distracted husband's polenta!) All our guests went crazy for the hors d'oeuvres as well.

Regarding the Beacon on site staff - so friendly and truly helpful and attentive with their wits about them as we were losing ours. How they managed to pull off the gourmet menu, seemingly effortlessly, I can't even imagine.

I must thank you also for filling in the little gaps that I'd worry over or didn't even think of. I have to think it was all a labor of love, (I had a good feeling, the moment I met you) making the wedding feast so memorable. Please pass on our thanks to all who helped: the bartender, the servers and Chris who coordinated the show so gracefully.

Dear Vicki:

I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you and your staff for the delicious food that you prepared....I heard nothing but praise for the food, which for my mom at least, was the most important part of the proceedings!

My husband also was very impressed-he said that he'd like to come to Beacon to try some of your other offerings. So, don't be surprised if you find us on your doorstep one day.

Finally, thank you for being such a delight to work with. You were so accommodating and cooperative....It was a pleasure meeting you and I hope to see you again some day…and to have some more black cod!

Hi Vicki

Just wanted to send you a note as a follow up from the party on 12/12 at Marvimon. The feedback on the food was a resounding WOW! You and your team did a really marvelous job! I can't wait to visit your restaurant :-) You were truly marvelous and so easy to work with - thanks so much! I couldn't have done this without you.
