Everything was perfect! They showed up on time, set up quickly, served with smiles, they helped clean up....food was delicious! I was asked by our guests for the Caterers phone number. Completely satisfied and VERY happy we choose Carefree Catering!!
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!
We couldn't have been happier with the service and food provided by Chef Alice and Hob Nob Catering. A 25th Anniversary party at our home and dinner for 40 - delicious trays of pre-dinner appetizers - and festive displays on all the tables. Our guests loved the food, and everything was on schedule, working in sync with the flow of the party and keeping everyone stocked with food and drinks. The Hob Nob team provided so much of the cleanup that we had very little left over to do the next day. We will DEFINITELY call Chef Alice for anything we do in the future!
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 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!
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!
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
We had a great 87th birthday party for my mother-in-law in out rental home in Scottsdale with Anna as our personal chef. She was very easy to communicate with, arrived exactly on time, her dinner was fabulous and she didn't stress out when the ovens were not working properly. Anna stayed extra time since the dinner took longer to cook and she was a great sport. I highly recommend her.
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!
Adetoun is the best thing that happened to me during my wedding planning process. I hired her to do my decoration and she was exceptional. We bonded from our first meeting and she was one stop shop as she planned everything. She is very professional and keeps to her words. She did everything she said she was gonna do and even more. when the doors opened for the guess to walk into the reception venue, their face lit up because they felt like they were in Cinderella's ballroom. Everything looked so amazing. I couldn't be happier that i chosed her and i thank God for leading me to her. She made me have my dream wedding. I was a very satisfied bride and i will recommend Adetoun anytime, anyday and for any event. I will use her again for all events i will ever have. She has become our family decorator for life. I love doublt T cateering.??
I was referred to Fork and Spoon by one of my friends. FS were punctual, professional, and showed great flexibility when it came to cuisine choices. They seem to have experience in various ethnic foods. Every body that attended my gathering were happy with the service and the food. They were able to accommodate various crowds with different diet restrictions. Honestly, it was one of the best catering experiences I had. I strongly recommend them!
Great service great food made everything easy for me the owner jerome took care of everything for me and was very professional
Let me tell you Chef Shannon has been a game changer for our family. It may seem like an excessive expense. But let me break it down for you because it’s probably not as expensive as one might think. If you’re a family that eats out a lot and doesn’t have time to cook you may actually find like we did that your food expense actually goes down. It cut our monthly food allowance more than half! Our family of 6 plus nanny cost us between $1200 and $1400 a month. This includes ALL food/ grocery cost!!! So do the math how much are you spending eating out that you can now cut out and how much are you spending at grocery store and you will probably be surprised to see it’s more then this. It promotes healthier eating habits and portion control and did i mention her food is amazing. And she is flexible with her menu. I can say hey can you do a Thai dish this week!! Or a Greek.....you name it we haven’t stumped her yet!
Extremely impressed witht the food quality and service of the Good Food Table! Chef Devan truly takes care in his craft and every meal is full of flavor! Especially impressed with their vegan dishes (and Im a heavy carnivore) would recommend to everyone. PS the BEST mac n cheese, hands down!
A romantic Italian meal for a 94-year-old birthday boy and his wife. Fresh salad, chicken Parmesan, pasta, and veggies were delicious and plentiful! A homemade birthday cake for dessert ... and all professionally prepared and presented. This was a peak experience not only for my in-laws but for us who were looking to give them a beautiful evening. Tricia is a true professional who clearly is passionate about her mission. We are soooo lucky to have found her!
The process from start to end was seamless. Chef met with us and listened to our ideas and designed a totally custom menu just for our event. His food was tasty and the presentation was amazing. The staff was professional and friendly. I would highly recommend Chef Giancarlo's services to anyone looking for a caterer. You won't be disappointed.
Choosing AZ Inspirations to cater our state womens retreat was one of the best decisions Ive 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!!!
Laken was the epitome of professional, her prices are much more reasonable than some quotes I received. I will be using Laken for future events I coordinate. Everything was great, thanks Laken!!
