Worked with Jon and Alicia on catering my daughters backyard wedding. They were the only caterers willing to not only provide me with amazing food, but were also willing to serve food that I had prepared as well. We are transplants from Louisiana and it was important for us to prepare some of our cajun recipe's and share our our heritage with our guests. Jon loved that we wanted to do that and didnt hesitate to accommodate us. Alicia came out a couple of weeks before the wedding to understand the setting and what exactly it was we envisioned. The day of the wedding Alicia and staff showed up and took over. I literally turned my home over to them and enjoyed every minute of my daughters wedding. Thank you Carefree Catering for a job well done!

Dorrenda and her crew were absolutely amazing! They helped us bring together our special day. They go the extra mile to ensure the party goes off without any hiccups. One of our cake decorators forgot the knife we were going to use to cut the cake at our wedding. Dorrenda came to the rescue, going to the store buying a knife and then proceeded to cut and serve the cake for us. Dorrenda is simply the best. ALSO guests were raving about how delicious the food was and we still hear compliments about it.

I have been a restaurant owner, caterer & food critic prior to retiring. I think I know a little bit about food & the business. So read my review. This company did a fabulous job! It was a last minute party & I wanted what I wanted when I wanted it how I wanted it! I am a my way type A person. They sent chef Ezra & server Roberta they were wonderful. The food was exactly what I wanted & how I wanted it. Delicious, served hot and plenty of it. We were late serving- people were held up getting to our location. No problem at all they took it in stride. You will pay up front don't worry they are honest. Very reasonable price, excellent quality food and as long as I can talk to Chef Steve because HE LISTENS I will have these guys again & again! great job guys thank you thumbtack

Steve and Carol Ann catered our Thanksgiving Day meal for 15 guests. It was amazing! Real home cooking, easy to heat & serve and true professionalism. My 82 year old Dad was pessimistic about catered food on Thanksgiving and he was blown away with the taste and quality. My picky eater son said it was the best turkey he ever had. Unique Luxury Catering gave us a 5 Star restaurant quality home cooked turkey dinner. Thank you Carol Ann & Steve!

We had an absolutely delicious dinner with Chef Steve from Unique Luxury Catering. Steve and his assistant Carol Ann did a great job communicating and staying in touch during our planning of my dinner party. He arrived on time, prepared a fabulous meal and cleaned up the kitchen entirely when he was finished and before he left. I would highly recommend Unique Luxury Catering. The food was excellent!

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!

Juan Pablo and his staff did an amazing job for my husband's 40th birthday celebration. The tacos were awesome!!! And, his wife makes the best refried beans I have ever had. If you are a taco fan, Juan Pablo is the guy for your party. In working with him, he was professional, interacted well with our guests, and it is evident he takes great pride in his food. Juan Pablo cooked the food right outside in our backyard adding to the festive celebration. We would highly recommend The Perfect Saiz Taco for your next event.

Can't say enough about my experience with Zcaters. I threw a surprise party for my husband and this was my first time hiring a caterer given the size of the event and all the other stuff I needed to plan. Working with Michelle was effortless. The food was excellent- I received several "who was your caterer" comments. At the last minute I asked for some cheese pizzas since my kid count went way up-- they were enhaled. I will definitely call Michelle again for my next big party.

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!!!!

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!

I contacted AZ Caterer about our Employee Appreciation Luncheon for our department in a large City. Being a gov't agency, our budget is limited, however Chef Vic worked with me to make our catering wishes come true. We have done bbq food for the past 8 yrs or so through a restaurant, but decided to go with Thanksgiving style meal this year. I was a little nervous, as we were expecting over 160 employees, but Chef Vic did NOT disappoint. Not only have I had employees just rave about the food, but the service and the attentiveness of Vic and his staff as well. The food and setup was beautiful and delicious! Everything appeared and tasted to be completely from scratch and we could have not been happier. The City will definitely be using AZ Caterer in the future, and I am sure many of my staff will reach out for personal events as well!

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!

Christina was Great! We were a family of 13 visiting Phoenix for Thanksgiving and she gave us the red carpet. Collectively we decided on a menu for 2 days and she delivered without a hitch. We arrived on Wednesday afternoon and she was waiting for us at our rental home putting the finishing touches on our meal and it was GOOOOOD! For Thanksgiving Day she arrived at 11am to complete the meal for a noon meal time and we had a GREAT day of food, fun and family without worrying about cooking. I highly recommend Christina for any event or family function to ensure good food and an experience! Lastly, she provided a diverse portfolio of menu options, on Wednesday we had a Fajita bar, chicken wings with all the fixings/sauces made from scratch and Thanksgiving day we had your traditional Turkey and Dressing, ham with Mac-n-cheese, greens, salad and banana pudding and it was all great! Thanks Christina!

Actually VERY GOOD. We had 50 guests for a Caribbean themed engagement party. Jennifer came up with a super buffet dinner- with some dietary requests handled well. Everyone enjoyed the food and there was plenty. If we were to do it again we would tell Jennifer to spice the side dishes up a bit more and hire her or someone else to help us replenish the trays of food and wash up so that we could mingle with guests. Many thanks to Jennifer for a job well done!

I retained Stacey to bake a cake and cookies for my daughter's bridal shower. Stacey created the most unique cake comprised of cupcakes to create the shape of a wedding dress. Stacey also baked wedding cake shaped cookies which were decorated exquisitely and wrapped in cellophane then tied in a bow. I highly recommend Stacey for any catering needs. With Stacey's background she is highly qualified to create anything sweet or savory. Stacey is highly professional, courteous and prompt. Throughout the process Stacey was always in touch with photo samples, new ideas and overall status. I will definitely call Stacey next time I have a party catered into my home.

Stacey catered our wedding a few years ago. She had the most brilliant ideas to offer after describing what we were looking for. The food she prepared and served was, and still is three years later, the talk of the wedding. People raved over the presentation and deliciousness of everything she made. She was also very professional and warm to all of our guests and provided such great service!! I eagerly look forward to working with her again.

We heard about AK Catering thru some friends that invited us for a special occasion and spoke very highly of this catering company. The quality, taste and presentation was the first things we noticed, and every dish was unique and very delicious! We decided to get their contact info for our little boys upcoming birthday party. We called Anna and discussed the menu, date, and costs. Since we already sampled her menu before, we requested many of the same wonderful dishes. Her pricing was so reasonable, we were floored, and figured we would never have to cook ourselves again, or use the previous mediocre catering people. Anna is truly amazing at what she does, and her product and service stands out! Can't wait for our next party! Thanks AK!!!!!!

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.

I needed a function catered and of course, last minute notice and last minute menu changes. The staff adapted well to my needs, was very accommodating and was in communication constantly with me to assure me the changes were covered; which was paramount to me. As for the food, everything was there on time, and the food was fresh and hot. I have had meetings catered in the past where it seemed as if the food was prepared too far in advance and the food did not taste fresh; merely reheated. If you need an event catered, I would definitely recommend this team.

We had our annual backyard bingo party and I decided I didn't want to cook this year. We hired Natures Kitchen Catering. Not sure what to expect and being a little bit of a control freak, it was hard for me to let go in the beginning. But, after getting comfortable with the level of service, expertise and professionalism that Chef Jerald and his assistant displayed, it was minutes before I backed away and put everything in their hands. Our guests raved about the appearance, taste and quality of the appetizers that were served. It couldn't have been a more successful evening and I look forward to our next party when we will, without a doubt, be hiring Natures Kitchen again!
