Marcel was EXCELLENT! I had an unusual catering job, one he hadn't done before. He was terrific at following up with me, patient when I had to delay getting back to him, and took care to understand exactly what I needed. And then he carried it out to the letter, with perfect results. And he's super easy to work with. By sheer coincidence, one of my event attendees had used his catering services just a couple of months before, and also had only glowing reviews of his food and his service. If you have need for catering or chef services, you can't go wrong by hiring Marcel for the job. I can't wait to use him again!
I used Jose and his staff for our daughters 15th birthday party. We had a bit over 100 guests with the party lasting about 5 hours. I can't say enough about how good the food and service were. Jose and his staff were quick and efficient and super professional and friendly. Jose bailed me out with a few items i had forgotten (ice and dessert plates). I would and have recommend Jose's service to anyone looking to have a catered event.
From the first interaction online, gourmet lovers was prompt, professional, thorough and caring. The initial face-to-face meeting before our wedding gave me even more confidence that on the day of the wedding the food was the least of my worries. We had a hors d'oeuvre only menu that are 80+ guests loved. Many of my guests complimented their food and service and asked for their phone number for their next party which I gladly would refer gourmet lovers. Gary and I were thrilled Thank you Gourmet Lovers so very much for making a joyful day even more special!
Madkins catering catered my bachelor party of 30 guys. The food was really good, and there was so much food left over. Everything came that I ordered and Delores also threw in dessert for free as well, which was a total surprise. I was more than satisfied with the food and service.
The food and service was great! We will use them again!
Chef Marc has consistently provided me with A+ food and service. He is an extremely talented Chef with an eclectic mix of healthy food options. His culinary skills are outstanding and he has helped guide me towards a healthier lifestyle. 100% game changer. Thank you sir.
A big 'Thank You' to Susan and Wild Thyme. I hosted a group of 12 friends for a 'wine sharing' party at my house, and since I don't know what wines my guests will bring, it was important to have a wide variety of tasty bites to nosh on. The Wild Thyme team totally knocked it out of the park with a continuous flow of awesome bites for us, including: charcuterie plate, brisket sliders, roasted brussel sprouts w/ a bacon jam, grilled cheese sandwich wedges (yum!!) and more. One of my favorites was a single shrimp with a citrusy sauce and avocado wedge served in fancy spoon...great presentation and flavor! (paired really well with sauv blanc!) Overall I couldn't be happier with the food, service and fun that Susan and her team provided for us. I highly recommend that you give Wild Thyme a try!
Mark was absolutely incredible! The food was amazing but what made a huge difference to me was Mark's attitude. He went out of his way to help with everything from cooking and serving tô opening wine bottles and making sure everybody was happy and well served! If you need a chef Mark is the one to go. Absolutely love his food and his service!
I have to qualify this review first by saying I have worked as a professional cook and have owned a catering business. So I have an eye for and know what works and what doesn't, what can be prepped beforehand without sacrificing quality, and what can be done on sight and off-site with the aim of making sure everything is properly expedited and comes out on time. When I arrived the table was set up nicely set up and decorated. However, we had previously informed Chef that we were going to be 13 and we would like two tables, as some people are uncomfortable with sitting at a table of 13 people. So we had to ask Chef to please separate the two tables. When Bridgette came the day before, my wife mentioned she wanted a table of 6 and one of 7, not two tables pushed together to make 13. There were also no cloth napkins, but paper napkins. I guess assuming that a request for "linens" did not include cloth napkins, only tablecloths. But I digress. Even though this was done in our home where we are well equipped, I still expect anyone coming to prepare food to come fully equipped to meet their needs without having to use the home equipment. This was not the case, as Chef used our Kitchenaid, tongs, and other items. As well, they did not have a serving platter for one of the hors'd'oeuvres. Furthermore, they had to use some of our silverware because they did not bring everything needed (spoons, forks). There were steak knives on the table when we were eating fish, and no other knives. I had no problem with this because, of course, I wanted the event to go smoothly. But other clients might not have been as flexible. Finally, they used all my kitchen towels and had them all wet, from I don't know what- but it's easy enough to bring your own hand towels. As well, because we used the plates on the table for hors'd'ouevres, they had to wash and prepare again for salad plates, as they had expected the hors'd'oeuvres to simply be finger food. Nonetheless, the hors'd'oeuvres-asparagus with prosciutto and chicken bites, or whatever they might have been-still require plates. This delayed serving. More forethought should have been given to how this was all going to go down. Personally, I would have brought the salad all prepped. Because it wasn't prepped, it meant a longer serving delay. The server didn't know the difference between wine and water glasses-some basic protocol needed. The food was excellent and I had several very positive compliments from the guests, this is where they shined, and it was served hot and fresh like it should be. We had a delicious shaved fennel salad with parmesan, and a main course of Blackened Sea Bass with a succotash and roasted potatoes. That is the beauty of preparing on-site. I say this with the caveat, as mentioned earlier, that a few things could have been prepped beforehand without sacrificing quality. This would have allowed the service to flow more quickly and not have such long delays between dishes. As Chef prepared the chocolate mousse on site, some people had to leave before dessert since it took well over 45 minutes between our main course and dessert. While we had agreed that I would supply the chocolate, it I had known it was going to take chef so long to prepare it, I would have suggested it be made beforehand. If I had done this lunch, I would have brought the mousse pre-made. They used up my whole bag of ice too-I would have brought ice. Finally, food left over was taken away and not left with us. I asked the server I f she was going to leave the food to me as she was walking out and she laughed uncomfortably and said no. My assumption is that the client paid for the food, they should get any leftovers. I give Kudos to the Chef for excellent food, but the service was uncomfortably slow and everyone noticed. Finally, the server was inexperienced. Overall, organization and attention to details were lacking. To end on a positive note, they did an excellent job leaving the kitchen just as the found it and were friendly and professional despite the hiccups mentioned. I didn't have to worry about anything. If you are looking for good food, Chef Mumsie does a great job. But please ask that they send you experienced servers, and make sure to point out every possible detail that you can think of, because in my experience, they did not have a checklist or form to check off what you do or don't need for an event.
Amazing service. The service and food was talked about through out the night. Tonya was a joy to work with and accommodated our clients budget and needs.
Travis cooked for our 2015 Women and Men church conference in April. He was very upbeat, positive and attentive to our menu requests. But above all else he was very professional concerning our timeline to have the food ready to serve after our nightly service. The food was excellent! the chicken breast was very moist and well seasoned. The veggies was fresh and cooked just right. We received nothing but good compliments about our Chef. Thank you for a successful confernce
I used Aioli for my wedding rehearsal lunch/picnic and it was great! They delivered on time and the food was amazing. Thank you guys for your high quality food & service. Highly recommended :)
From the moment of the first phone conversation, within an hour or two, Alexis handled herself with warmth, intelligence and Professionalism. Her food, service, and servers were excellent. We feel fortunate to have had her services in such an important event. Would highly recommend her to any and all.
I was a guest at my friends dinner party that was catered by the Segar's, food was great and I would recommend their services.
All the food Carmi has delivered is delicious and nutritious!
Fitch has been a caterer to the Boeing company for several years. His professionalism and good food go hand in hand. He's always on time and always willing to go above and beyond to ensure everyone is pleased with the service and food.
Acacia catered a large family event I hosted! Choosing her to take care of the food was the best decision I made! She was always very kind, professional, and easy to work with! And her dishes were delicious! I will Be using her many times over in the future! Thank you Acaia! Your food was the highlight of our event!
Tuition Bites provided exceptional food and service. We would recommend and definitely choose Tuition Bites to cater events in the future.
We hired Island Soul for our mothers celebration of life party a week before the event. Luckily they were able to accommodate us on such short notice! Everyone at our event LOVED their food, and their speciality (pork belly) was to die for. They were so sweet and professional. We will be hiring them any time we need catering. Thank you so much you guys!!
Carolina and her beautiful team were the perfect choice to cater fmy wedding reception. The food was truly delicious and generously portioned. My guests ( you don't and old) raved about the food. They crafted a menu that worked with my Fiesta themed wedding made up of the freshest ingredients cooked to perfection. Carolina was attentive to every detail- bringing us samples to try, checking in with me in the days before to see if I wanted any changes and that the prep for my home wedding was under control. She even sent her team member, Erika over the day before to help us with the decorating. There was not a single thing I didn't love about them and their food! Do it hesitate to hire Super Food for Super People for your next event! I loved them and you will too. Delicious food lovingly prepared by terrific people.
