Mr WorldWide Catering was fantastic! I have used him another time since our first project and am planning to use him again for all of our occasions. I am an event coordinator and not only was I impressed with his and his staffs professionalism, delicious high quality food and efficiency throughout these events, my clients were impressed as well. That means everything for me and my business. I highly recommend Mr WorldWide catering for any special event you need catering for, no matter how big or small. He is a pleasure to work with and will ensure your expectations are met and exceeded.

My wife and I live very busy lives with demanding work schedules. When we are not working we love to spend time with our family and entertain. I am a bit of a foodie as is my wife, so when we entertain the meals must be perfect. I am very impressed with Lilian's ability to deliver the highest quality cuisine in a variety of nationalities. She has prepared French, Moroccan, Thai, Asian fusion, Mexican fusion, and Mediterranean to name a few. She has served us at an intimate table of four to catering fundraisers for over 300 people. In addition to the fabulous food, Lilian has a friendly inviting personality and always has a smile on her face. If you hire Lilian as your chef, you will not be disappointing!

I have nothing but great things to say about the service, quality, and overall delivery of Best Mobile Chef. From beginning to end, Shawna was very attentive and professional. As a bride, I can honestly say that planning a wedding is one of the most stressful experiences in your life; however, Shawna did an amazing job at making sure I was not stressed or worried when it came to the catering, bartending, and cake. She made sure that each and every need was met, and she even offered her assistance with cutting our cake even though that was out of her services. We sat down and went over every detail, and Shawna made sure to keep in touch throughout the way to maintain things and to make sure that we were on track with everything. Finally on the day of, the food and setup was more than what was expected. Our family and friends spoke so highly of the food and service. Shawna and her team was absolutely phenomenal! My husband and I would definitely book Shawna and her team again for a large dinner, and even desserts. We are both forever thankful and grateful!

She fit right in with my family and friends and I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for a caterer.

Kieth, owner of Haute Productions was wonderful! I hired Haute Productions for my clients 60th birthday event. The food was amazing delicious! Kieth worked with me to match what my client wanted. There was no limits in our request. The guests raved about the mixed vegetables, seriously order them they wonderful. The chicken was moist the sauces were full of flavor. The spread also included another guest favorite, honey butter. Everyone was satisfied. I will defiantly be keeping Haute Productions on file for future clients and look forward to working with Kieth again. Thank you!

Christine McMaster is a hidden gem of the culinary and catering world! She was the caterer last year for a wedding I attended and I was most impressed. She completely handled an amazing dinner for 21 people with delectable Indian and Middle Eastern Food; taking care of the shopping, the food preparation, the service and cleaning up of the food and leftovers. I was so impressed that I asked her to cater an Indian Meal for 75 people! Since it was a much larger undertaking, we provided theingredients, but Chris oversaw every aspect of the preparation of a 5 course meal, and remained calm, organized and personable throughout. The food was absolutely delicious. I would absolutely recommend her for any catering needs you might have - you would be lucky to get her!

Stephani is the consumate professional, and just as warm and fun as she is talented. I have a Tuscan dish she made me that invariably evokes a Pavlovian response when I think of it.

Daily Chew Catering dished up a bit of heaven on a plate for a holiday party recently and from the first time I contacted Carly until the last bit of food was gone, we were blown away by the entire experience. Daily Chew Catering offers a wide selection of menu options, so there's guaranteed to be something great for every palate, and everything is done well. Daily Chew does food service right, and I'll no doubt be quick to call back and start planning for our next event as soon as the time comes. Thank you for the professionalism, the amazing food, and your passion for great-tasting, incredible quality catering experience!

Carolina catered two nights in a row for my client. The first evening was more formal. She helped me pick out a menu that would work accordingly. The second night was more casual and she assisted in making the perfect menu for that night as well. She was very helpful with adjusting for dietary restrictions, including Kosher. Her team was very fun, polite and professional. They arrived perfectly on time and needed minimal help with set up. Thanks, Carolina!

Amazing customer service. The company catered a large family even, they were courteous very clean, and an absolute joy to have around. The food was out of this world the best combination of southern blends I've ever had. The pulled pork was tender and juicy as well as the fries and coleslaw. I highly recommend that anyone looking for a catering choose this company!!
