Jonathan catered a lunch for my dad's 90th birthday. The food was delicious. It was delivered on time. We had Chicken Parmesan, Italian sausage with green peppers and onions in marinara sauce, tossed salad, and orzo pasta. For appetizers we had tasty meatballs on a stick and watermelon and grapes on a stick. He made delicious parfaits with rasberries for dessert. The employee who delivered the food was very helpful and set everything up. Somehow somebody forgot to bring the bruchetta appetizer and some spaghetti, but the employee who set up the food cooked some spaghetti for us to serve with the Italian sausage. Jonathan refunded me $25 for the missing bruchetta. Honest mistakes happen. Overall it was very good food for a fair price.

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.

Chef Alice is top notch. We used Hob Nob Catering for our Easter dinner and truly could not have been happier. All of the food was absolutely amazing - the scrumptious appetizers and steak were among the best any of us had ever had! Chef Alice planned the impressive menu and was super flexible with any requests. She was a complete professional start to finish. Just a delight to work with. She decorated our tables so elegantly and beautifully. Mike, also from Hob Nob, helped serve our Easter meal and he was just terrific. Such a pro and so nice. We loved that we were able to have a 5 star dining experience with our friends and family in our home and did not have to do any work or have any worries. We are 100% sold on her and her company. Any future catering event will involve Chef Alice and Hob Nob Catering!!!!

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!

First of all let me say that Robin really means "Catering Your Way" This was a home wedding reception for 10 and in our pre-visit she listened very carefully to all of our desires, requirements and concerns and addressed each of them perfectly. She handled the set up, meal prep, serving and cleanup without any disruption to our ceremony or guests. The quality of the service and food was 5 star for sure from appetizer hors d'oeuvres to main course filet mignion to dessert and table settings. Her personal appearance and plating presentation was extremely professional and fit the bill for our elegant setting. I highly recommend Catering Your Way!!

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!

I engaged Anna to cook for my sister while she was recovering from major surgery. She jumped in on short notice and cooked several delicious meals. She and my sister got along famously. I couldn't have been more pleased.

I hired Christine for my wife’s birthday and she did an amazing job! Everyone who was there are big time foodies who love to cook. Everyone was so impressed with the menu (I’ll talk more about this in a moment) that we’ve already decided to hire her again for a couple future get-togethers. As to the menu, she has several suggestions to choose from though what you decide on follows what can be as in-depth a discussion as you like. We have some very real life-threatening food allergies in the family and Christine came up with very creative (and very delicious) ways to adjust the menu. So let’s talk value. For the time Christine spent on us and with us, coupled with the appetizers, salad (salad is not an adequate description for what she made) main course and sides, plus dessert!! Could’ve paid the same for a high end restaurant with far less food, much less time and not had the ability to relax with friends and family at a very leisurely pace... Yeah, I said plenty of food... Everyone went home with a to-go container (supplied by Christine). She’s such a great personal chef with amazing personality who doesn’t mind half the guests asking 20 questions while looking over her shoulder. Plain and simple, want an amazing dinner of your choosing away from the stuffiness of a high end restaurant?? Hire Christine, you definitely will not be disappointed...

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!

We had our annual St. Patrick's Day Luncheon, I have to say I was a bit nervous. But instead it turned out to be the greatest experience, everything was here on time, everyone raved about the food that was served especially the corned-beef, the Shepard's pie and Lasagna was also a great hit. THANK YOU Gracie Parker Fine American Cuisine for a great experience, I would recommend you to everyone who asks about catering services.
