It’s always scary to procure services online, especially when it comes to catering a party. Island chef provided excellent service, arrived on time, food met all expectations. Tamara was extremely responsive with questions and options.Dec 21, 2018Verified
Tamara and her staff really helped to make my husband Birthday Party very special. I was free to really enjoy myself. She came to my house to see the space before and came up with a great menu. The Fruit tower was an added surprise and a big hit. Spicy Cole Slaw and meat balls got great response and the wonderful Pina Cola Cake. Display was very important to me and they hit it out of park. Things were left clean and tidy with very little on my part. Bartender and server very personable and worked very hard. Thank you Tamara see you at the next one!Apr 11, 2017Verified
Everyone raved about the food and the presentation. Staff was professional, on time, no issues. There was more than enough food for seconds and more. The chicken divan was amazing, the veggies were perfectly cooked. Wish I got a chance to enjoy the food, being the host doesn't leave enough time to always the food...Mar 16, 2017Verified
Tamara was excellent! She worked with us every step of the way--from my long meandering introductory phone calls, to my changes to the menu, to my constant-changing guest list. Tamara was on top of it and never complained about anything. I can't say enough good things!Dec 18, 2018Verified
I have not used Island Chef...yet. Since our guest list kept growing for the event we are planning for this December, we will have this celebration at a restaurant. However, Tamara's speedy, enthusiastic and warm response will have me save her information when we host a smaller dinner party at our house in the future.Nov 2, 2018Verified
