Food was very good & company takes pride in service provided. Our event featured a buffet with seasoned & very tender roast beef & the garlic mashed potatoes were creamy & flavorful. Guests were very complimentary. Dorrenda was easy to work with & very accommodating. I would definitely use this company again.

This is the 3rd time this year we have used Unique Luxury Catering, and they exceed exceptions every time! We have had 2 sit down dinner parties for 12 and 1 ladies luncheon for 36. Each time we have used wait staff to serve the meal rather than a buffet, and the service has been super, and the food even better!

We used this catering service for the welcome party to our wedding weekend that we hosted at a private house with about 60 guests. This is a family business run by Juan Pablo and all the servers that day were his wife and kids. They all did a great job and were very friendly and professional. We had a lot of out-of-town guests so we wanted to give them a taste of local Arizona flavor, Juan Pablo did a really nice job engaging people and telling them what they were getting. We had a taco bar buffet line with ground beef, chicken and chorizo, rice, beans, hot tortillas, guacamole, salsa, etc. Everyone said they enjoyed the food, and Juan Pablo packed up the leftovers for us, which we ate for the rest of the weekend! He also made horchata for our rum horchata signature drinks which was a nice touch. We recommend this business!

Chef Robin did a tremendous outstanding job catering for my baby's baptism. I will definitely be calling her again for future events. Robin catered delicious food, setup our VIP table for guest and had a separate buffet area for the kids area. She also stayed the whole time during our (very long) event - and all together just took a lot of the stress away, where I knew that area would be handled by her. It felt like all we had to do was show up - instead of slaving over the stove and then getting ready for our event. And another thing I liked about Robin was her availability and flexibility. She is also such a people person - My Family Loves her annndd our guest kept complimenting and asking who made the food and how did we find her? All in ALL Chef Robin deserves a 5 star and more.

Chef Stacey catered an ASU graduation party for 15 people at a private home, and did an excellent job. We are from out of state and it was nerve-wracking to hire a caterer sight unseen, but Stacey put me at ease, coordinated beforehand, arrived on time, and presented a beautiful spread of delicious food. She is excellent at details - the skewers had little curled ends; the cucumbers in the veggie tray were scalloped; the artichoke dip was homemade. I paid for a higher-end appetizer buffet and she did not scrimp on quality in her food choices. As one of many examples, the fruit plate didn't have just "the usuals," but included some higher end fruits such as blackberries and raspberries. The meat and cheese tray was similarly high-end. Desserts were beautifully displayed and delicious. The quantity was very generous and we were able to offer some extra food to my daughter's college-student friends on their way out. Highly Recommend!

Chef Vic did a fantastic job catering our Thanksgiving dinner for 30. He delivered a hot & fresh meal to our counter at 2:00 on Thanksgiving Day--not many caterers are willing to work on the holiday but Vic & his staff made sure we were taken care of & the meal was better than anything I could have accomplished in my home with days of preparation. It was definitely homemade and the price he gave us was more than worth it! The chain stores & grocery stores we looked into were slightly cheaper but a lesser quality by far & required all the heating up & transferring to dishes that makes Thanksgiving so much work to begin with. Can't say enough about how happy we were & our guests were all impressed as well!

What a tremendous experience from beginning to end. Anna-Liisa catered a graduation party for 50 guests - she tailored the menu to match my daughters favorites - arrived with a huge smile on her face and put on a dinner that all of my guests raved about. She is gracious, professional and a fabulous cook - I can't wait to work with her again.

Christine and her team have catered many events for us, family & friends previously. The food and overall experience are always nothing less than stellar! The attention to detail and quality of food are fantastic! This is why we keep her busy. One of the best caterers on the west side by far. John T

Emma was able to take a picture that I had off of Pinterest and create a cake that I loved! I am Fostering to Adopt my tiny granddaughter and having pictures for her to know how loved and celebrated she is was extremely important to me and the cakes were the centerpiece of our celebration! As with any custom artistic projects ~ they cost extra. It was absolutely worth it, plus the cakes were moist and tasted great. I am sure that simpler cakes than fondant would be less expensive and fabulous too! I will be using Emma for all our celebrations with specialty cakes. We even live in the East Valley and she packed them and gave us such great advice on the importance of absolutely keeping the cakes cool that they were perfect when we got home!

Had an amazing dinner catered by Amanda - Amanda and her team were super professional and friendly, the dinner was amazing (every plate was eaten clean) and picked up a cooking tip along the way. Would definitely use her again.

Amazing amazing amazing! So easy to work with; a few text messages and one phone call was all it took to arrange a beautiful, delicious, complete Christmas dinner for my 14 person family. We all absolutely loved the food and Jacqueline's warm personality. 5 stars all the way!

I was so incredibly pleased with Sheila's service and food. She catered a dinner for about 50 people with only a few days notice. While I coordinate these dinners on a monthly basis, and typically use the usual chain restaurant options, no one has ever commented on the catered food or asked where we got it from. At this event which Sheila catered, at least half of guests in attendance asked where in the world we got the food from and were raving about how amazing it was. ( I had ordered the greek dinner from her). She delivered and set up in a timely manner, everything ready to go by the requested time. She went above and beyond for us in the little things- like beautifully arranged presentation of dishes (which she provides) and even of the food itself. I would post a photo, but our guests dove in before I could capture one! I will definitely be using Sheila again. ...And will be sure to capture a photo next time to post!

Choosing AZ Inspirations to cater our state women’s retreat was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! Nik was wonderful to work with. He was very helpful with menu selection and suggestions for how to tailor to the needs of my particular group. The prices are extremely reasonable and there were no hidden surprises. The agreement was clearly written and all was delivered as promised. The buffet set up was beautiful and the food was amazing. (Make sure to check out the lemon bundt cake). We chose the all inclusive taco bar for our dinner and the Cranberry Chicken Salad for lunch -- set up in a build-your-own salad bar presentation. Our guests raved about the food and went back for seconds (yes, there was more than plenty to eat). I would highly recommend AZ Inspirations and plan to use them for every future event. Thanks Nik and team!!!
