I hosted a training course recently that brought physicians from all over the country and I wanted an excellent cuisine experience for breakfast besides the traditional bagels and fruit. Dynamic Cusine put an amazing spread that included quiche, muffins, and a fabulous parfait in little baby mason jars! I definitely will use Dynamic Cuisine again. Can't wait to do a lunch next:)

After emailing and leaving unreturned voicemails for two caterers that I won't mention, I found Artistic Touch Catering. Immediately, I knew that I was in great hands because of our interaction. Chef Michael dove right in and was present every step of the way! Being a foodie, the food is a major part of my day and I didn't want the typical Hors d'oeuvre. Chef Michael called me and I explained my vision to him and he just got it. When I mentioned that I wanted out guests to have a foodgasm when they tasted it. After emailing and finalizing a menu, my fiance and I scheduled a tasting, which was no additional charge. When we arrived, Chef Michael greeted us personally. Although it was our first time meeting, you would have never guessed it! He has such a sparkling personality and has a level of professionalism that I haven't seen in a long time. From that very first moment, I knew that I could let go and trust that Chef Michael saw vision and after that first bite, I realized that not only did he meet it, he exceed it! His food is PHENOMENAL, the service EXQUISITE! The table setting was beautiful, which he had set up in the kitchen. Many caterers will sit you outside of their kitchen area and you're unable to actually see the food prepared and plated. They did everything in front of us and seeing him work with his staff and the level of respect that have for each other is admirable! Chef Michael has the experience and the passion and it's evident in everything that he does! Chef Michael, Nicole and the rest of the staff at Artistic has not only set the bar high, but also given me peace of mind! Thank you, Chef Michael, Nicole and the rest of your amazing staff! I can't wait to see you on my BIG DAY!

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!

Chef Steve was hired to be our dedicated chef for our company strategy retreat in Scottsdale, Az. Our team of 9 were seconded to a venue in Scottsdale and chef Steve provided breakfast, lunch and dinner for 5 full days. All meals were fresh, healthy and tasty. Portion sizes were perfect and the variety was magnificent. Chef Steve prepared the menus, purchased the necessary ingredients and prepared the meals both on-site and offsite. The kitchen was always left in immaculate condition and the meals were always served right on time. Meal times were the highlight of the meetings.

We hired Juan Pablo's The Perfect SAIZ Taco to cater our quarterly corporate lunch. The food arrived on time and was very delicious. We especially enjoyed the pork and beef dishes and thought the recipes were tasty. I recommend The Perfect SAIZ Taco to cater any corporate event that calls for delicious, crowd-pleasing Mexican fare.

Chef Alice and her business Partner Mike did a fabulous job with our Thanksgiving Dinner. Everything was prepared perfectly. We were renting a house and Chef Alice made sure to bring everything that was needed to have a beautiful relaxing family dinner. All the food was delicious and I would highly recommend using Chef Alice for any of your catering needs.

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!

Peter, Carsten, staff & servers made a banquet dinner honoring mid school & high school students and teachers of the year after winning their VFW Patriotic essay contest . With just a week notice they prepared savory bar b que featuring more than enough overly generous portions for over 70 diners. Fantastic, PROFESSIONAL cooperation and attitude made the hurried event a smashing success. Highly recommended for big or more personal events. Their restaurant as well is a delight to go to for the best tasting bar b que in Arizona...

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!

This was the first time I ever had a holiday dinner catered, and I couldn't be happier to have come across Rich at RE Catering. He was a most pleasant person to deal with, and true to his word. He delivered exactly what he promised... delicious home made food, piping hot on Thanksgiving afternoon, with plenty of leftovers. He delivered everything from rolls and butter to pumpkin pie and apple pie. The only thing I supplemented was sweet potato casserole. Although catering our holiday meal was supposed to be an exceptional event to accommodate my hectic work schedule, we are now considering having it caterer by Rich every year. 😋

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

Hello! I would like to say a big “Thank you so much!” to The Honest Food Project for feeding my crew with your delicious food! They were all in a food coma and we are so happy to have had such a great meal. I am was happy to see that the crew went in for seconds. Shockingly enough, we did have left overs. They are excited to have some turkey for lunch tomorrow. Thank you again for the spectacular service! I would definitely recommend you. Attached are the photos of our left overs. We had so much food the guys were full! So yummy.

Where do I begin? I personally love Italian food and I'm part Italian so I know how it should be done! Miele's Bistro is beyond anything any olive garden or competing Italian restaurant can offer. I'm young so I have an insane appetite and honestly, here they are not cheap with their servings. The food is delicious, the portions are just right, and the price is appropriate for the quality and experience. Everyone's incredibly friendly and the owners know what they're doing, I hear they plan on expanding and I honestly hope they do because Miele's is one of the best tasting Italian restaurants I've had since moving to AZ. If you want great tasting food, without breaking the bank (ASU students take note) then this is legit the place for you. Definitely worth checking out, especially if you prefer delivery or pick up!

Working w/Kari was a delight! I called her (on short notice) to cater a lunch birthday party for 20. She took the time to listen to what I wanted and made great suggestions to improve my proposed menu. She arrived early to set-up - an outdoor venue. The presentation- professional. The food - delicious; guests were impressed ... and still talking about it days later. Thanks, Kari, for making this important event so special! Without reservation I can recommend Kari to cater your next event.

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!
