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!

I contacted Sage Bleu based on the reviews I saw here. Although there were other caterers with more reviews, I was looking for a talented caterer, not jaded by decades in the business, who would go the extra mile to deliver superlative food and service. The reviews I saw here painted a picture of incredible food and personalized, unobtrusive, caring service, so I called Sage Bleu. When I spoke with Lavonne, I casually mentioned a few dishes that only the most savvy food aficionado would know. She subtly let me know that she not only knew what those dishes were, but knew how to prepare them. SOLD! I had Sage Bleu cater a casual neighborhood get together as well as a white tablecloth dinner for a dozen finicky business associates. The food selections were appropriate for both crowds. The food, wine pairings and presentation were impeccable. Service began exactly at the appointed time and clean-up was to the highest white glove standard. I cannot recommend Sage Bleu highly enough!

I'm Italian so I'm really picky about Italian food. I hired Francesco and Cucina Migrante for the opening party of my new company, so for me was a big deal: a lot of potential clients were invited. Everything was perfect, from the food to the service. For a moment I though to be back in Italy. Thanks to the chef and the staff! Ps: I totally recommend to book Cucina Migrante for your events!

On Sunday November 29th 2015 I had the distinct fortune to have Chef Leslie Merle cater a special event for my food and wine organization. Leslie and her staff hit a Home run!! The food and service were outstanding and I can't wait for another opportunity to work with her again. So if you need to use a caterer that you can trust I would highly recommend Chef Leslie.

I have been to two different dinner parties and I am so impressed with the fabulous top-quality food prepared and served by Christine! Everything was amazing including the organic baby herb lettuce with confetti cabbage that was served with a roasted chicken salad. My friends and I are still talking about the delicious Panaang Coconut Curry with shrimp. Truly the best I've ever had! And the amazing dessert -a flourless chocolate cake and vanilla bean ice cream. Looking forward to the next time.

Joan is an amazing chef. A better name would be food artist. I actually went through a time period when I didn't enjoy food and when she prepared the meals for me, it was unbelievable. She is committed to excellence, and finding innovative ways to create foods that fit any dietary need. Healthy and delicious are the two words to describe her cooking!

Chef Andres is the real deal. I hired Chef Andres for a proposal dinner and he did an outstanding job. The food was so amazing that my fiancée and I are still talking about it! Not only was the food some of the best I've had in my life, Chef Andres is as professional as they come. I had the chance to speak with him on several occasions. His vision and dedication to his profession is what sold me. Not only did he cook, he helped setup the table, candles, flowers, etc while I was doing my thing. Then proceeded to clean the kitchen. Every inch. That's customer service! He's worth more than what he charges and I'll be reaching out to him again. He's self-made and truly cares about his food and customers. That's something you don't find too often these days. Thanks again chef!

Stephani was hired to run the food boutique for Purchase Dance Company's annual run of The Nutcracker. Stephani prepared beautiful organic baked goods, snacks and beverages - all seasonally wrapped and displayed. Approximately 2500 guests were served over the course of five performances. The goodies she prepared were delicious and the boutique was managed to perfection. I highly recommend Stephani.

Thanks Gigi for your delicious meal for my Poker group. It was an informal group of friends who played poker while you served several courses of carefully prepared food, including a great cheese course. You were easy to work with and accommodated my preferences.

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!

I have a very busy travel work schedule. Miss Jones made it so easy to still eat healthy, on my strict time restraint. The food was delicious and I did not have to worry I was going off my strict keto diet requirements. When I got back from my trip, all my meals were ready. It made my life so much easier. I plan to use her whenever I travel. Pam C.
