I was so excited about Open Table for our wedding and was not disappointed. We lived out of town for 10 months prior to our wedding and only had small windows when we were in Boise to be able to meet, but April and her team were very flexible and we were always able to get meetings when we needed one! They listened to what we wanted and liked and created a menu that was so delicious! They were all extremely friendly and professional and I am so glad we chose them to cater our wedding. Thank you!
— Alex, 2016 Wedding
April was wonderful to work with and the food was AMAZING! She had to deal with a difficult reception venue, but she did so with class and professionalism. We had the prime rib and it was piping hot and the best that I have ever had! Thank you so much for helping make my reception perfect!
— Bride Wedding Wire Review, 2015 Wedding
I recently had the pleasure of experiencing your catering services at a Boise Chamber of Commerce event and wanted to let you know how good the food was and how polite and professional your staff was. I will be sure to pass along your name and number to our management team for possible future events. Job well done!
— Tim, Northwestern Mutual
We had a party at our home celebrating my husband’s retirement. This was our first time having anything catered. We wanted to thank you so much for helping make our party an enjoyable event. The food was remarkable and the event staff was very well-timed, professional and cordial. Everything worked out perfectly. You achieved everything we were hoping for, a relaxed atmosphere and delicious food. This was the first party we have thrown where I was able to relax and enjoy myself while your staff did all the work.
— Julie and Rick, Private Party
Open Table is batting a thousand with TitleOne! You did an AWESOME job on our event today. It is so nice to work with a vendor that you just know is going to take care of it all! Can’t wait to work with you again.

Thank you and your team for the incredible catering at the wedding. The appetizers and entree were spectacular. We were so pleased with the presentation of the meal and the exemplary service of all your staff. We feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with you. Open Table is the BEST!

My husband and I selected Open Table to cater for our September wedding in Boise. The wedding was taking place at The Linen Building so Open Table was recommended to us and I am so happy. April from Open Table was so lovely to work with and she was so helpful in selecting the perfect menu for our reception. She helped customize appetizers and main courses that suited my dietary requirements (I am lactose and gluten intolerant)All of the dishes were beautifully presented and delicious. We have received numerous comments on the food and we were so happy with everything April suggested. It was perfect. I would recommend Open Table to anyone planning a wedding in Boise!
— Bride Review, The Knot

We were extremely impressed with the catering for our wedding. You did an amazing job! Everything was delicious and everyone that was at the wedding can’t stop raving about how good the food was and asking who our caterer was. You did a great job preparing the fish (which meant a lot to my parents). I think I need to get your recipes. People also really enjoyed the beer and wine selections. Jimsi and your staff were great too, very helpful and professional. We can’t thank you enough for helping make our wedding day so special.
— Molly and Casey Allen
Just wanted to thank you again for making my 50th birthday so memorable. I have received several phone calls in the past few days expressing how beautiful (everything) looked that evening and how much they enjoyed the delicious food. Many friends told me it’s the best catering food they ever had! Thank you!
— Lorraine K, 50th Birthday Party, December 2010
I just wanted to say thank you for everything you have done for us the last couple months. The food was fantastic, your staff was wonderful, and it helped make the holiday season go so smoothly. I appreciate everything you and your staff did.

Hey Ladies, Rave Reviews once again! Thanks so much for always delivering healthy, quality foodJ J Everything was great and I have received at least a dozen compliments. I think this means we’ll be seeing you again soon!
— Rebecca N, MICRON
Hi Jill and April, I just wanted to stop by and thank you all once again for a tremendous catering for our event this past Saturday! Your staff and meals were perfect, from the very beginning Doug and Sami both introduced themselves (Sami I already knew) and asked what needed to be done and what they could do! Your entire staff was outgoing and friendly which made for a great event! The food was brought out in a timely manner and Josh was able to work closely with myself to ensure a fabulous served meal. The butter was a hit! I have lots of requests for the recipe, not sure if its a secret. The Beef and chicken were phenomenal as well as the veggie! Again thank you for all your assistance in making this event spectacular. I will be in contact in the future should I have any catering needs. Just out of curiosity, are you currently hiring any banquet servers? I am highly interested in gaining more experience in the realm of events as I hope to pursue a career in large event planning following my time at Boise State.
— Thanks, Jordan S. BOISE STATE UNIVERSITY

What an amazing lunch! I took a picture of my plate and sent to my mom to tell her we might as well cater Thanksgiving because this was so good.
— Lauren, Business Luncheon
Everyone absolutely loved the food. You got staff to eat brussel sprouts who swore they never would – and liked them! It went above my expectations, thank you so much!
— Alyssa, Business Luncheon
That food was the best I have ever had at any networking event in town! And I’m not exaggerating. The mushroom risotto, that salad dressing, and the dessert all were perfect. I’ve never had a salad with pomegranate seeds in it … loved it.

Thank you so much for your awesome work catering and arranging linens for our wedding. The menu was absolutely awesome. Everyone was raving about the food. We are also grateful your staff took care of the Brown Cows for us, another success and original dessert idea. Katie and I hardly ate on the day, but the leftovers were superb!
— Jarod and Katie, 2013 Wedding
Thank you so much for being part of our special day. We had an absolutely amazing time celebrating our nuptials at the Linen Building and you and your catering staff were really a central part of our evening. The food was absolutely DELICIOUS – honestly, lots of people commented to us how much they enjoyed it – and the presentation and service were stellar as well. The carrot cake was delectable, too – luckily my mom was able to snag a small piece for our one-year anniversary before the entire thing was gobbled down. Thanks for being such a responsive, cheery and enthusiastic part of our day. Every time we saw you, you were smiling and looking forward to contributing to our wedding experience. We really appreciate it so much and only have good things to say about our experience with Open Table.
— Camille and Jake, 2013 Wedding

Ashley and I can’t thank you enough for the delicious food and a beautiful dinner service. The wait staff was fantastic!

The food was wonderful! I got so many compliments on your catering. Even a guest who was a former caterer herself said it was the best she had.
— Donna Beeson, Private Party

I thought I would send a few comments we had from participants:


“I attend a lot of conferences and meetings. This is the best food I’ve ever had at any function.”

“This food is better than what I had at my wedding.”

“Thank you so much for having such healthy options and offering choices for those of us who are sensitive to where our food comes from. Seeing that the coffee was fair trade and there was free-range chicken meant tons to me.”
— Sam Strother, DMT Institute
Everything was fantastic. We loved the food and heard from so many people that it was the BEST wedding food they have EVER had! Now that’s a huge compliment! I was so happy that my guests loved it all. Your staff was very friendly and helpful. All around it was just a great experience.

April, the food was TO DIE FOR!! Everyone was complimenting the food. As a dietitian, you knew how important healthy and yummy were to me – and you did both so well. The food was even more delicious than it sounded when we were planning the menu. We were beyond impressed!

Everyone really liked the food. Big compliments on the asparagus and the salads. Everything was tasty — all the flavors were so good!

Tell everyone thank you for a job well done!

I appreciated how the meal truly was a reflection of Kyle and I’s tastes and adventures as a couple. In addition to the food, I appreciated how flexible and helpful you were throughout this process. Thanks again and I hope I attend an event that you cater in the future.

I just wanted to send you a big “thank you” from Andrew and me for making our wedding such a beautiful and memorable event. We couldn’t have been more happy with the food. We heard so many people commenting on it as well, things like, “This is the best food I’ve ever had at a wedding!”

She does a great job with a unique variety of dishes and flavors that are appropriate for the event and venue.

Kickstand has had Open Table cater our Start-up Speed Dating event for two years now. The food presentation was wonderful and the combination of ingredients was unique and tasteful. I can’t say enough good things about our experience. They are true professionals in all they do.
— Becky Gates, Kickstand
Your staff was amazing to work with, super friendly, efficient — I would be so proud if I had staff that worked so well together like you had arranged for our wedding! Everything was amazing! All of the plates were clear and we hardly had any leftovers, so that speaks volumes about how amazing your food was and how much our guests LOVED it!


Honestly, everything was PERFECT! The food, appetizers, salad, signature drink … it was all great and your staff did an amazing job! I will for sure keep you in mind for any future parties or events that require your culinary skills!
— Kathy and Kahle Becker, 2011 Wedding
Thank you so much for a great meal! It wasn’t only tasty, I think it opened some people up to experimenting with foods they might not order for themselves — and they ALL raved about how good all the dishes were. Appreciate the attention to detail in how the service line looked and made it much more special than a traditional “picnic.”
— Deana M. Thornton, Boise Inc.
We could not have been more pleased with the food and service. We have received a TON of compliments that it was the best wedding food ever! You guys are amazing and I would happily recommend you to anyone. Thank you for everything!!!

Open Table Catering has been tremendously generous to Trey McIntyre Project. Not only have they donated the catering of many of our events, they have done so with a spirit that has understood and enhanced the mission of the company. Not to mention they make amazing food that makes a meal an Event by the good feelings it engenders and the imagination it inspires.

You guys are amazing!! Thank you so much for the wonderful job everyone did for us. The food was scrumptious and the room looked absolutely beautiful. You are all so friendly, helpful and professional; it was a pleasure having Sara and Matt’s wedding at the Linen Building. Such a memorable evening, and such a great feeling to be able to enjoy it with our family and friends and know all was in good hands! The bride and groom felt very pampered :) It was perfect! Thank you thank you thank you!!!

We could not have been more happy with the way things turned out! Everyone has been talking about the food and saying it’s far superior to any food they’ve had at other weddings. We were glad we gave ourselves plenty of time to eat — it was decadent! Everything was absolutely delicious. You were a dream to work with and played a huge role in the great success of our reception. A million thanks for all of your help! Your staff was wonderful and we could not have been happier. Thank you so much for making me the most stress-free bride anyone has ever seen! I’m still dreaming about the little shrimp baskets, lasagna and brie salad — yum! Thank you for an amazing experience.

We wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you for the delicious food Open Table made for our wedding last week … we got so many compliments from friends and family on how tasty all the food was … Absolutely everything was fresh and delicious. The appetizers and the chicken especially were specifically called out over and over again.… It was an absolute breeze and pleasure to work with you and needless to say, we were thrilled with the results. Thanks for everything you did to make it such a special, care-free night.
— Emily and Evan, August 2010 Wedding
Did you ever see the movie “Big Night”? It ends with a scene where the food was so delicious and was prepared with so much love that it literally made the party. Last night was one of those experiences. It was so remarkable and so focused around, driven by, the food. It really brought people together in such a loving way … Thank you again and congratulations on all of your success. You deserve it, huge.
— Trey M., Private Dinner Party, Sept. 2010
The whole experience was wonderful for us and your service was requested at our next spring meeting. You did an amazing job with every detail.
