If you're tired of the same boring food at every catered event try Ne Me Quitte Pas. Chef Paul Spillane is an amazing cook and very professional.   I don't usually "Yelp" but signed up just for this.

We had a dinner for 10 last Saturday. It was terrific. 6 courses, plus dessert. And passed hors d’Oeuvres (spelling???) to start, so many different things. 


Every course was special - something remarkable and interesting. These guys clearly put in a ton of work, and with passion. If you want a caterer that is more than filling bellies, if you love food and want it to be a part of your event, these guys are perfect.


At the same time, they never imposed on us. They didn't break into conversations to tell you about their creations. They answered if they were asked. They weren't showing off, they let the food speak for itself.


I love the Short Ribs with Mission Fig Glaze the best (the sixth course) served with Sunchoke-Cauliflower Puree, Celery Greens and Mushroom Consommé with Morels. (they did nicely put a menu at each place setting - and very nicely without plastering their name across it)


And they brought all their own stuff, and left the kitchen cleaner than when they arrived.


One more thing - we bought the dinner for 10 at a charity auction. These guys donated their time, effort and the food and wine. All the money went to charity. I don't usually post reviews, but it was really great and for someone who does all that for charity, I thought I'd take the time to let the world know.

I was referred to Fox Grape after experiencing their amazing food at a friend's wedding reception. She and I are both vegetarian so I was confident they were the ones to cater MY wedding. Three years later, my non-vegetarian friends and family still rave about the food. So when I was given the task to through my best friend's 'tea-party- themed' bridal shower, I knew just who to call. Fox Grape knocked it out of the park with a mix of vegan/non-vegan finger sandwiches, mini-quiches and terrine salads. Even the most finicky eaters LOVED every bite! They made the planning process for BOTH events stress-free, they were open to accommodating specific dietary restrictions without compromising flavor and visual appeal. Paul responded to my emails quickly and works in a warm and confident manner. He is a true professional. It is clear that he loves what he does and takes great pride in creating delicious and affordable food that will leave a lasting impression on all of your guests. I would absolutely recommend Fox Grape for any occasion!

Fox Grape has catered for us on more than one occasion. One of our parties was a thank you celebration for work colleagues. We wanted it to be exceptional and Fox Grape exceeded our expectations. The food was so great that people who attended the party are still commenting to us over a year later about how wonderful it was! The unique and detailed menu planning, the professional service, the beautiful presentation of delicious food is the best in the business. We look for events to call on Fox Grape because they are so fantastic to work with and go above and beyond to make an event a success! It is without reservation that we recommend Fox Grape Catering!

Paul and everyone at Fox Grape are simply extraordinary. In short: book them immediately. I've worked with FOX GRAPE CATERING on my own wedding and have, subsequently, hired them for work functions. Paul is intuitive, creative, flexible, inventive, tireless, and a chef beyond compare. The food is amazing, the menu is always thoughtful and surprising, the presentations are personal and tied to the nuances of the event and its hosts. The FOX GRAPE CATERING staff is always kind, polite, unobtrusive, friendly, and engaging. Simply a pleasure to work and collaborate with from start to finish. Can't say enough or award enough stars.

This was actually not a wedding but our annual Winter Solstice Party, which Paul and Brent have catered for us for about the past seven years, along with various other events. I cannot recommend Fox Grape Catering highly enough. These two are artists; it just happens that their medium is food. They work with you to design a menu specific to your needs, put an number of personal, elegant touches on it, and hand-pass the goodies throughout. They are unfailingly polite and cheerful, and all my guests love them. This caterer is tops.

As I was just clicking the stars, I thought "I can't give someone all 5 stars, that doesn't seem believable." The thing is, though: There isn't one area where these guys let me down.

 

When we first met Paul, we were enchanted. He's so warm and lovely and really funny! When we started to talk about the menu, every request we had was met~~from food preferences or costs to allergies of some guests. He makes everything from scratch and he and his partner are completely professional, hiring an incredible team to facilitate everything on the big day.

 

They even had suggestions as to where I should rent my tables, chairs, and tent from. I cannot recommend them highly enough, my wedding day wouldn't have been the same without them!

I thought my wedding was awesome, and Paul was such a huge part of that. The food was amazing - really classy and interesting things, totally delicious, and unique. Also very reasonably priced for what you get! They bake all their own breads, make all their own butters, do all the pastries in-house. The staff was extremely polite and professional. Paul was also really helpful with rentals and other related things. They also did all our menu cards for us, designed to match our invitations - they looked great!

 

In addition to the quality and value for cost, working with this company was great. Paul was responsive and had thoughtful and helpful answers to all our questions. He is very detail-oriented, and also an extremely nice person - a wonderful combination. Paul designed our menu totally from scratch - we were never asked to pick from any list. We just talked about what we wanted and went from there. It was amazing to have that level of customization and flexibility.

 

Bottom line: we found Fox Grape early in the planning process, and I'm so glad we did. Hiring them was hands down the best decision we made.

Fox Grape Catering is one of the most gracious and flexible catering companies you will ever find - they truly aim to go above and beyond for their clients and it shows. Their attention to detail is impeccable and the food is out of this world. You would be hard pressed to find anything tastier and more creative! I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants the food at their wedding - both in presentation and taste - to be one of the highlights of the evening. :)

I cannot even begin to thank Paul and Fox Grape enough for every detail, every taste, and every moment of our wedding. From the second we talked to him, he was a dream come true. My family members are foodies and had high hopes for our catering menu, but no one was prepared for the experience we received. Tiny lobster rolls with vanilla, truffle tater tots, bowls based on our wedding theme, handmade containers for every food item based on our invite design, handmade corzetti, seared scallops so perfectly cooked, black cod chowder made with bacon and love...the list goes on and on and on. Rarely does a caterer make food look heavenly and taste EVEN BETTER. Fox Grape was the HIGHLIGHT of our wedding. Every guest told us the food was the best wedding food they've ever had--far and away. We agree. From the meat eaters to the vegans to the gluten-free folks, it is unanimous: Fox Grape is the BEST. To top it off, Paul and his staff are humorous, professional, sincere, hard-working, and humble. Have I mentioned we LOVE this caterer? Thank you Paul for making our wedding the most memorable event, the most delicious day, and the best decision we could have made for the most meaningful meal of our time together.

This food is amazing.  We had two very different functions in two days, and Paul handled them both magnificently.  One was a sandwich set-up, and the meats and cheeses were beautifully displayed as well as tasty.  The two salads were gorgeous and absolutely delicious.  He set the serving table with great care, and it impressed all the guests.  

The second day was a hot food buffet with three different lasagnas (the seafood lasagna was the favorite), a wonderful salad of Winter veggies, and a roasted tomato and mozzarella salad as well.  We also had one of his punches - and that was a huge hit.  

Everything from presentation to menu selection to cooking to clean-up was extraordinary.  We will definitely use Paul and Fox Grape Catering again.

IThis catering service was outstanding. Great food, great appearance and very professional. The value is excellent for the cost you pay. I would highly recommend this catering service to everyone.

I have used Fox Grape Catering many times and could not recommend a better caterer, better food, better service or better overall experience. My sisters first hired Fox Grape Catering for my bridal shower and from then on, everyone in our family (including many of my parents' friends) have used FOX GRAPE CATERING for various functions - baby showers, birthday parties and most recently a surprise anniversary party for our parents. The food is always outstanding and Paul, the head chef, caters to your every question and preference. We consider them part of the family as they have done so many events for us and always know our guests will be wowed each and every time!

We would not even host an important event without Paul and his team. The food becomes the centerpiece of your event, and all you have to do is enjoy your party. We have recommended Paul to anyone who will listen and they've all been equally thrilled.

This has been by far the most beautiful wedding I have ever been to. 
I used to work at the Sheraton and at La Donna in Mansfield many years ago including many functions and nothing compares to this.


Paul and Brent and their team had outdone anything I had ever encountered.

The best decision we made on our wedding day was hiring Fox Grape Catering. Paul is not only a brilliant chef but his attention to detail, taste, and making each event feel like one of a kind far surpasses any other caterer we met with. I was worried that on the day of the food might be a bit lackluster, but instead it blew us away. Our friends and family still tell us how our food was the best wedding food they've had, hands down. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would.

They went above and beyond to ensure our happiness. The food was DELICIOUS, the final touches were detail-oriented & specialized. I was so impressed and very happy with our selection for Paul as our caterer. We cannot wait to have him again!

"Paul, I just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you from the very depth of my heart. I can’t tell you how incredible you made each and every one of my friends and family feel. The food was so unique and splendid with details that only a master chef could achieve! You are a true talent and so kind and easy to work with. "

"I recently used Fox Grape Catering for a baby shower and was beyond thrilled with the outcome. Not only was the food incredibly tasty, the presentation was unlike anything I have every seen. The theme of the baby shower was literacy and Paul took the time to create miniature "Dick and Jane" books to be used to present the food for the buffet. The care and attention to detail that Paul gave, to integrate the food into theme of the event was incredible, along with the high quality of food is what sets Fox Grape Catering apart from other caterers."

"From the moment I contacted them regarding my - what turned out to be numerous - events, I was immediately put at ease knowing the food for my party was going to be fabulous. The owner and head chef, Paul Spillane, was terrific to work with and came up with ideas that I didn't even know existed for food and decor. They have done the food for many family functions including baby showers, bridal showers and most recently my parents' 60th birthdays and all of our guests were so excited to see that it was Fox Grape Catering doing the food for each event. A simply wonderful caterer, simply amazing food!"

"I can't say enough good things about Fox Grape Catering or Chef Paul Spillane! I am the head of a customer service group that has lunch brought in on busy days. I really like to treat my team to something special when we do this for them, and ordering a stack of pizzas never feels like much of a treat. I am really happy that I found Fox Grape Catering to cater these lunches. Everything is perfect from the presentation to the AWESOME food, presented in a way that can't help but make my people feel special! Finally, being in customer service, I am more than pleased with Paul's (and everyone at Fox Grape Catering) service. Like I said, I am placing these orders during busy times, and I have so much confidence in Paul, that now all I have to do is call and say "I need food for 30 next Friday" and I trust he will show up with the perfect selection of choices, allowing me to check that one thing off my list with no worry! Now that is service!"

"Okay Paul Spillane, You pulled off one impressive sandwich party. Thumbs are so far up they've fallen backward and are pointing down (this is highest praise in my 10 year old's world). One of the teenagers is reported to have said, "Mom, they even have bison!!" Thank you for being truly lovely to work with. Everything was beautiful and your crew was warm and delightful. You got just the flavor we were looking for with very little effort on our part."

"Our guests could not have been more impressed with the food created by Fox Grape Catering. Many said in all the years of weddings they had been to, the food at our affair was beyond amazing and surprising and exciting. Above and beyond the food, he dyed the waitstaff's aprons to match our invites, built custom-made boxes and picks for food presentation, and decked out passed hors d’Oeuvres with miniature quotes about marriage (and that's only a few of the many things he brought to our event). I was an event planner in New York for many years and worked with ''the best'' but NO ONE compares to Paul Spillane."
