I contacted Busy Bee Cook for Me to cater my Dad's 90th birthday party for about 40 people in our senior complex. She came and checked out the venue and made some recommendations for the food and service that were right on the mark for what I was looking for. On the day of the party, she and her crew showed up right on time, and both the food and service were totally amazing. People who were there have been saying that it was the party against which all other parties they ever attend will always be measured. And Dad enjoyed himself immensely. Thanks so much to Lilian and her crew for helping make the party for my Dad such a great success!.

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.

We used BAPS! catering for our annual Halloween party for about 100 people. The food was AMAZING and a crowd pleaser. The prices were reasonable and Brad was professional and responsive; super helpful. They did drop-off service and set it up with everything we needed and extra supplies and food to replenish as things ran out. Would use them again and highly recommend them.

Most importantly, Stevan's food was amazing - creative and delicious. I called him the day of my party and asked him to try to get to my house earlier than planned, he was prepared and organized enough to show up 2 hours early. Stevan is as nice as he can be & left my kitchen spotless. I will definitely call him for my next party.

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.

Catherine cooked for a weekend bachelorette party of 13 we had in Napa. She used local fresh ingredients that made the meal shine and brought together the flavors. All the food was ready and hot with prompt timing. Which was a good thing given 13 hungry woman. Having Catherine cook in the home made the experience more personal and easy for us. I would highly recommend her for a small or larger party.

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 used Patsy several times. My first class was knife skills, food prep, and planning a home cooked meal. We prepared it and enjoyed the meal we cooked. Not only was Patsy knowledgable but is a great teacher that seemed to put everyone at ease no matter how "skilled" or not we were coming into this class. My son Kurt called upon Patsy to help him plan and execute my surprise 60th birthday party. Kurt told me he never could have pulled off not only a great party with beautiful trays of food without Patsy guiding him through the whole journey as a novice party giver. Patsy is the whole package and you'll be happy you hired her.

April was fantastic. She put together a delicious array of food for my 94 year old Father receiving The Quilt of Valor for his service in WW11. She was timely. She was organized. The food was great. Thanks again.

Ellena is incredible! She offers amazing food and exceptional service. She clearly loves what she does and is passionate about food and clients, offering creativity and customization. Whether looking to feed yourself or your family healthy meals or looking to host a knock-your-socks-off catered gathering - I work with her regularly for both and there is nothing she doesn't wow me with. The best Cuban sandwiches you have ever tasted for a fun Miami night theme, mashed potatoe bar for a midnight comfort food theme at a fancy holiday party - Ellena is creative, kind, and extremely talented. I would highly recommend her.

Chris catered an event at our home for roughly 40 people and everything went extremely well. He was right on schedule and had everything under control which impressed us. The food was amazing and most (if not all) of my guests commented on how much they enjoyed the food and presentation. Everything went smoothly from start to finish. Having Chris there let us actually enjoy a party at our home for once! I whole heartedly recommend Chris.
