Thank you Black Tie for a fabulous New Year's Eve wedding at the Portland Club. Couldn't have hoped for a more beautiful venue or better food and service.
The Black Tie Company catered the wedding for my nephew two weeks ago at Broadturn Farm. The food was delicious and the staff was excellent!!!

While the food was enjoyable, we had a terrible experience with the Black Tie Company's wedding coordinator (Shannon I believe was her name). At my sister's wedding, the vendors did not get a meal. We had specifically discussed this prior and when it came time for dinner, she was no where to be found. My sister's poor photographers ended up having to eat protein bars they had brought in their cars after working a 12 hour day. The DJ didn't get fed either. I felt really bad for them and I feel this situation needs to be addressed to prevent it from happening in the future. More...
My wife was chosen as one of the top 20 women. We attended a reception at The Landing. Thier credit card machine was not working. They told me the amount, they had my card info and would process it the next day. Well they processed it alright, they processed it twice. At first I thought the second one would disappear, but it's Saturday now and still there!!! More...

Had a private cooking class for a bachelorette party at their Portland Club location and it rocked! What a great space and wonderful staff. It was delicious and fun, I highly recommend the Black Tie Co! More...
I cannot say enough wonderful things about this company! Amy Collins helped us tremendously from day one and was professional and timely in getting back to us with our endless questions. She helped make a stressful planning process so much easier and smoother. The day of the event, another Shannon was in charge and did a sensational job, covering all of the bases from set up to the food to the bars and to the dessert stations. Our venue actually had three separate buildings that we used for cocktail hour, dinner, and the reception, which made it extra challenging. Everything went so smoothly, it was truly incredible! We did a family style meal which everyone loved! The food was absolutely delicious with gorgeous presentation. They were accommodating to our guests that were vegetarian. The selection of food makes it easy to come up with a full menu and stay within your budget. My husband and I are so pleased that we chose Black Tie. From our first meeting on, I never worried about the food, which is in my opinion such an important piece of the wedding day. I had the upmost trust in Black Tie's service and after tasting the food, knew we could not go wrong. Their food tastes so fresh and flavorful. We highly recommend The Black Tie Company for any catering needs! More...

I had the best food I have ever had at a wedding that The Black Tie Company catered on August 20th. It was in a beautiful Maine barn, with happy, excited, loquacious friends and family who held up dinner for way over an hour and it was perfect and delicious. The employees were personable and friendly. It was just wonderful!! Truly a 5 star production!! Cheers�! This Southern guest was wicked impressed! More...

My husband and I worked with Heather Dusty and the Black Tie Company to plan our wedding at the Harbor View at Jones Landing. We have nothing but wonderful things to say about Heather and Black Tie. I was planning this wedding from California, and Heather made the whole process easy and painless. It was such a cool moment seeing my entire vision come together - it was the wedding that I have been dreaming about since I was little! Heather was also great about giving recommendations when I was at a loss or didn't know where to start - just the right balance of helpful without ever being pushy.
Heather also really helped working with other vendors. She always had a contact ready for whatever new detail I found out I needed (menus, programs, linens, etc.) and offered to coordinate. She helped coordinate communication even with vendors/partners that were particularly uncommunicative, which saved a lot of headaches.
The food was incredible, and the staff awesome. We worked with a phenomenal dessert chef who made my hydrangea, blueberry cake vision come to life - complete with ski cake topper.
I literally cannot say enough good things about Heather or Black Tie - they created the perfect day for Alex and me!!!! More...
I have used black time for a number of catering events. The presentation and quality of the food is far superior to other careers I have used. The Union Kitchen in Portland has private parking available right outside their doors so it makes picking up food a breeze. Deliveries have always been with a smile and on time. More...
I worked closely with Amy Collins planning my wedding on August 12th, 2017 at Josias River Farm. Amy was AMAZING to work with! She is knowledgable, organized, and just an all around sweet person! I felt totally confident in The Black Tie Co. and that security allowed me to truly enjoy my wedding. The food was as delicious as it was beautiful and we heard nothing but rave reviews from our guests. Many people have told us that it was the best meal they've ever had at a wedding - and we agree!
I had heard amazing things about The Black Tie Co. and our expectations were truly exceeded. The service, presentation, and attention to detail were just above and beyond and helped make our wedding day so perfect. Adam and I thank Amy and the entire Black Tie Co. team from the bottom of our hearts! You nailed it. More...
I absolutely love this company!!! I have so many great things to say so I apologize in advance for this long review...
My husband and I got married this past May in Fryeburg Maine and we can not say enough great things about this company!! Because the venue we used did not have an onsight caterer, or bar service, we had to do everything ourselves which made the process very overwhelming in the beginning. My mom was actually the one who found Black Tie and I am SOOOO grateful she did! The second I messaged them, they were so accommodating! We were able to book our wedding planner, food, rentals, bar service, and wedding cake through them and it was the best decision we made!!
I originally wasn't going to have a wedding planner, but i am so glad i changed my mind!! We worked with Heather Dusty who made the wedding planning process so fun and easygoing. She listened to all of our ideas and brought them to life and really helped take alot of the stress away from me. She handled everything from ordering plates and napkins, to the dance floor and floor plan. And even when the planning process hit a few speed bumps, she was right there to help me ever step of the way! She would periodically send check in emails and was so organized I could actually enjoy every step of the planning process and not worry about forgetting something. I am 100% sure our wedding day would have been a thousand times more stressful without her and her team. I feel like she wasnt just someone we hired, but a friend and I will recommend her to everyone!
THE FOOD!!! Everyone knows about the traditional wedding food that everyone eats but no one really enjoys....let me just say, Black Tie knows how to do wedding food!! Even a month and a half later, my guests are still talking about how amazing it was! Everything was spectacular! Even the presentation was beyond beautiful!! They even accommodated for ny family with celiac disease. The staff was so friendly and helpful, and were very attentive to my family.
Because we did not want to do a large cake we opted for a dessert station instead and a very small cake just for the ceremony. Ashley did an amazing job putting all our ideas together and created a breathtaking dessert station! Every detail was thought out and executed flawlessly.
The clean up and trash removal at the end of the night was also a big stress reliever! I had no clue some companies dont do that, so to find out they did was great!
If you are looking for a company who knows how to do weddings, this is the company!
Ps! ask for heather because she was that amazing!! �
The food was amazing. Our guests gave us so many compliments about the food for Black Tie. We had everything from passed horderves, stationary horderves, a catered buffet, and a large dessert station and it was all amazing! Keith was the captain at our wedding for Black Tie, and is absolutely incredible! He was very communicative and was always there if we needed anything. He worked extremely well with our vendors and always checked with us throughout the evening to make sure everything was going fine. Thank you again Keith!

Nicky helped make our wedding the most enjoyable, relaxing day we could have ever imagined. Helping with logistics, storage and other vendors were just a few of the ways she made the stress-filled process of having a wedding, completely stress-free. The location and view were breathtaking and we got sooo lucky with a gorgeous day to top it off. The staff the day of were just perfect. One of the servers was on a mission to make sure my husband and I tried every piece of food we had ordered and always had a drink in our hand. Every single server and bartender was enjoyable to talk to, quick to resolve any issue (which i don't think we had any, at least none that i knew of) and were extremely helpful when it came time to pack everything up at the end of the night. The food was AMAZING as well! We had lobster, steak and a chicken dish, all got rave reviews from family and friends. And the desserts...OMG! All around a great company to work with and would highly using them for any event, especially a wedding. More...

We can’t thank the Black Tie Catering Company and our wedding coordinator Kelcey Simpson! We had our reception at The Landing and so much detail was given to make our day so special. The months leading up to the wedding, Kelcey was available to give us quick responses to any of our questions. The food tasting at The Portland Club was exquisite and a highlight of events from our wedding. Kelcey listened to our ideas for the decor of the reception and executed that vision beautifully. Our guests all complimented the beauty of the hall and that the food tasted great. Guests also commented on how helpful, kind, and calm Kelcey was during the event. I highly recommend using Black Tie Catering and especially using Kelcey! More...
While the staff was pleasant enough, the food was underwhelming. The chicken we had ordered for the catered affair was cold. It was cooked through and not raw but when I tried to eat it it was cold. Not what I expected for the money$$$$ More...
Black Tie did an amazing job with our wedding! The food, service, event planning, presentation, setup and cleanup were all outstanding and Nicky took special care to make sure the bride and groom were satisfied. Our guests were so impressed! We would highly recommend them for weddings or any catering needs. More...
Can't say enough good things about Black Tie. Just experienced their food and service on a rehearsal cruise. The food just kept coming and everything was delicious! The staff was friendly, courteous and just plain fun. Thanks for making the cruise even more special! More...
