Appreciate you guys and we will definitely always chose you in the future and refer you to others for any of our catering needs! Thanks!
So far, we've had Michael Cole, the chef/owner of Artistic Touch, come to our house for a tasting. There were 3 of us at the tasting, and he came in and first asked us what the rules were of the kitchen. That was terrific - we asked for no sauce on the marble countertops since it would etch the surface. He noticed we had white throw rugs on the ground, and said that they'd make sure those were removed and bring their own black mat instead, to avoid scuffing or staining. He had a large cooler and carried it through the house rather than dragging it across our wood floor - a thoughtful and much appreciated attention to detail. He made sure that it didn't leak before coming in the house with it, too. The samples were numerous and required loads of prep work on his part prior to showing up at our house. We had so many options to try for appetizer ideas, from meatball lollipops with two sauce flavors, beef wellington pastries, bruchetta, salmon-cream cheese mousse on small crackers, jambalaya skewers, apple and cheese crackers, and even more things that I can't even remember them all right now! He made up a special lobster red-pepper bisque for my husband to try, based on his special request on the phone call. He made us a salad with raspberry viniagrette and arugula and mango cubes - yum! He made us a salmon plate with fresh, beautiful salmon - nothing frozen. The "Well-Done Only" girl in our group got hers caramelized which made her happy, the rest of us got medium rare which was terrific, and the sauce flavors were lovely - the rice wasn't dull. He made an apple slaw to put on top. His garnishes were all colorful and pretty so the plates were thoughtfully done with lovely, appealing presentation in mind. We also tried a filet mignon with mushroom sauce and whipped up mashed potatoes that were to die for. He knew that oftentimes, one extra person might show up at the table during the tastings, so he had an extra plate's worth of food from the tasting and put it in a to-go container which he had brought with him, so we could keep the leftovers in our fridge for later. He made three different types of desserts - Death by Chocolate was my favorite one, but there was another one with caramel and gingerbread, and another one with vanilla pudding and shaved coconut. All of them had hand-whipped cream on top. None of them were "too sugary sweet," they were just rich and savory and in single-size containers. It's clear that Chef Michael Cole is passionate about what he does and listens to his clients requests. He's going to bring a baked mac and cheese for the pickiest eater in our group, for instance, just to be safe. His price for the overall dinner for ten for us is incredibly reasonable and achievable for ordinary folks. He has Michelle Cole handle the finance and operations side of the business, and he handles everything that happens in the kitchen. We're excited to work with him and expect to hear from Michelle or Michael soon to arrange a deposit for our event.
Unfortunately, I was unable to go with Scratch Catering, due to a conflict with our venue. However, I absolutely LOVED Chef Giovanni and Ali, they were both so friendly and professional. My fiancé and I had a tasting with them, and it was a great experience. The food was incredible, and I loved that Chef didn't hover around us while we ate. He allowed us ample time to discuss the food and enjoy each bite, without the pressure of having to compliment him after each taste. I can't say enough great things about this caterer, and their food. Although our venue required us to choose one of their caterers, we will definitely be using Scratch Catering in the future for other events!
We had a lovely Christmas Party catered by Unique Luxury Catering. Chef Steve helped me pick out the perfect menu for our venue. Carol Ann coordinated everything: chairs, tables, linens, food, ice. Everything was included which made my job easier. Chef Alice prepared items which satisfied us all, including those that were vegetarians. The service was incredible. They were friendly and took care of all of our needs. Great job! Rose
Great experience. She is personable, creative & helpful. Super moist cake & coconut cream w baviarin cream that is to die for. She was amazing.
Chef Alice was truly a professional creating a perfect balance of personal touch and an amazing experience for our group. She was social yet let us have our space during our dinner. Not to mention the food she prepared was amazing and perfect. He menu came together beautifully! I couldn't think of a thing that could be improved upon! To end our meal Chef Alice complimented dinner with the most incredible Margarita Ice Cream. It was a wonderful food experience!
I used Sandra for a surprise bday present for my wife, just the two of us. I had never used a private chef before and was afraid to once I started interviewing because they would push what they knew how to cook and I wasn't sure I was being listened to. Sandra was the opposite. She never forced anything, she just listened to what I wanted and then sent me a menu that was exactly what I had envisioned and more. The one other criteria I had and told Sandra was I wanted a meal that my wife could not compare to any restaurant. I wanted something unique that tastes so good, it was incomparable. And she delivered! In the end, the food was amazing, the menu consisted of a lobster appetizer, amazing arugula salad just the way we like it, a filet like none other for me and salmon with pineapple and mango that my wife loved and couldn't compare to any restaurant, and for my wife (a huge dessert lover) Sandra made both "berries in heaven" (absolutely amazing) and a chocolate fondant (equally amazing)! I cannot express enough that Sandra was the perfect choice, delivered an amazing meal, provided incredible service, and was just a pleasure to have in our house and even more of a pleasure to eat her food! We are now planning on using her on an on-going basis because how could you not?! Better than restaurant quality food, amazing service, highly competitive pricing, and all with the convenience of being in your own home! What an amazing experience! So, to make a long review short, just hire her, you won't be sorry!
We used Corporate Caterers for a Christmas dinner for our group of 100. We enjoyed the Caribbean chicken and steak combo with salad, rice, and chips. We had cookies and brownies for dessert. Everyone enjoyed the meal very much. The chicken was tender and juicy and the grilled steak was delicious. They provided two outstanding servers that were professional, helpful, and efficient. It was the easiest party I've ever thrown. They set up the buffet, served, and cleaned up. I didn't have to do anything. It was great. Inaie was wonderful from the first email she sent to bid for the party. She replied to all my inquiries quickly. She was very helpful as we planned the meal. I was really impressed that she called me the day of the party to confirm everything. I will use this company again! Thanks!
Meat Lovers delight !! We had 2 groups of 14 people each. Started with appetizers of sliced sausage, baby backs and veggies. Second course of Caesar salad. The main course was Rib Eyes and smoked prawns. Finished the meal off with apple cobbler topped with a scoop of ice cream !!! Cook and server came to house, prepared servings, barbecued on site, cleaned up. Very professional. I would highly recommend these guys. Iver - Norwood Waterworks, Edmonton, Alberta
Chef Christine made our Mother's 90th birthday celebration amazing!! She made a special Spanish Tapas menu in keeping with our Spanish theme. We began with a spectacular Summer Artisan Cheese Board; then Spanish Potato Bombas; Shrimp Tapas w/Mango Shooters; Chimichurri Pork and Chicken Skewers; Marinated Flank Steak Crostini and ending with Bananas Foster Vanilla Bean Tempura Ice Cream with Caramel Sauce. Are you hungry yet? Best of all Chef Christine set up; cooked; served and cleaned up. Hiring a personal chef was genius. Christine was prompt, professional and personable. We were extremely impressed and will be using her again in the future. The Kriz Family
Sandra did a wedding reception for about 15 guests for me. She did a wonderful job from suggesting yummy food to presenting the food beautifully on the table. She handled special requests with aplomb, including making homemade peach ice cream (my husband's favorite) and preparing an alternative dish for a guest with dietary restrictions. I highly recommend Sandra!
We hired Whitney for my brother’s engagement party and we couldn’t have asked for a better bartender. She is personable, energetic and made awesome drinks. I even got a text from her as she was on her way asking if I needed her to pick up ice or anything else for the party. In addition to making drinks, she went above and beyond by refilling coolers, accommodating special requests from guests and keeping everything clean throughout the night. Multiple guests asked for her contact info for future parties. I highly recommend her!
I hired Chef Rodolfo Reyes to cater a party for about 45 people for my husband's 50th birthday about 5 years ago. I wish I could remember everything that was on the menu, but I don't because it was too long ago. What is important is that I remember everything was fabulous and our guests thought so too. We had full wait staff, and I didn't have to do anything but relax and enjoy the evening. The Urbane staff and Chef Reyes handled every detail including appetizers, a couple main course choices, dessert, set-up and clean-up. They handled seating, linen, and even centerpieces for us. Since then we have brought Urbane back twice. We selected a taco cart the last 2 times because it was such a big hit and very reasonably priced considering the quality of the food. We had grilled chicken, steak and beer battered cod. Guacamole, street corn and fresh salsa and chips were also on the menu along with drunk beans and rice. Everything was delicious, cooked to order, and our guests raved about the food every time. We had churro cheesecake for dessert and fruit enchiladas the last time. Amazing !!! I recommend Urbane to anyone who is considering using a caterer. Not only is the food excellent, but we have come to know Chef Reyes as an honest, respectful individual who takes great pride in his work. We didn't know Urbane or Chef Reyes initially. We just took a chance since we didn't have any referrals from anyone. I couldn't be more pleased with the service they have provided, and would never use another catering service now.
I hired Derek to cater an party at my home for between 20 to 30 people. This included all the appetizers, which included, three kinds of sliders, an apricot goat cheese spread, guacamole(not your traditional guacamole), blue cheese stuffed dates wrapped in bacon and other scrumptious appetizers that my guests enjoyed. He also made sangria, both white and red. I have friends that were attending that are very picky and others that only eat fish and Derek was very responsive and accommodating to the different types of dietary needs for the group. He was cooking sliders so many of my guests were able to meet him and talk to him and he was very friendly and my guests loved him. I would definately use him again, in fact want him to do a more intimate dinner party for me in December.
I tried them out since it was something new for our annual event and it was way better than what I expected. The service was great and the poke burritos were awesome!! It was convenient, new, and delicious. Our guests loved it also and it made our event so much more exciting. They came with all the equipments including tables and made the burritos when ordered. I think they said they make their own sauce which gave such a good flavor for the burritos. They gave seaweed salad as appetizers and even brought home made green tea ice cream!! I would definitely arrange another event with them.
