I hired Pete for my husband's 60th birthday... a 5 course sit down dinner for 14. Everything he turned out was creative, delicious and beautifully presented. He was extremely efficient and personable; very flexible and easy to work with when planning the menu. He arrived on time and took over my kitchen with great ease and confidence, as if he'd been there a hundred times. The timing of all the courses was impeccable. All the guests mentioned how impressed they were with him and with the food. I would highly recommend him as a personal chef for you event!

We LOVED Taqueria Cazadores! Very professional set up, more than enough (very delicious) food and super friendly staff. This is an amazing option for casual catering for work or friends for any occasion. Would DEFINITELY use Evan again - highly recommend!

Though he had had a late cooking night before and got our food ready a bit late, Sat prepared a great breakfast for our group of 15 friends. Sat worked with me on the menu and had good suggestions for what to put together. The food was creative and delicious, and Sat was a pleasure to have in our house.

Debbie was awesome to work with. She was very quick to respond to emails and came up with a creative menu for my party. The food was the hit of the party, and no one went home hungry! The food not only tasted great, but looked beautiful. I would definitely recommend and use Debbie again.

Working with any caterer can be an overwhelming process, especially when time allocation and budget is tight; and you want everything done right. With "A Plus Catering" I would say to trust the process. Like the line from the movie Shakespeare In Love, "It Will All Work Out In The End" and you and your guest will be extremely happy at the end of the process. Jennine and the staff at "A Plus Catering" are professionals and they will take good care of you and your guest. Her team was extremely courteous and demonstrated a high level of flexibility to meet the needs of my guest. Unlike big party chains, and hotel venues; making the customer happy is Jennine's top priority. So it goes without saying that the food was very good, the serving team was excellent, and if your event calls for a bartender; she got you! And, if there is a problem, call her; she got you! Open communication worked for me. "Peace of Mind" is what you get with "A Plus Catering". Peace of mind that she is there for you and that this is not just a business, but personal to her. I hope this review was helpful for you.

We were in a bind. It was Tuesday and we were hosting a bridal shower with 40 guests on Saturday. Thumbtack was easy to use and quickly got us in contact with Stephanie. Stephanie was available to speak on the phone that evening, was flexible and creative with the menu, and affordable! The day of the party, Stephanie and her staff member were punctual and professional. Food was plentiful, too. After the luncheon, they helped clean the dishes and pack up the leftovers. Thanks to Stephanie's Catering, our shower was a success!

As a event coordinator I have worked with Steve and the folks at DNL Catering on many special occasions. We have worked together on wedding and baby showers, brunches, wedding receptions, work Christmas parties and anniversary parties. They always provide a menu to your request and the playing of the food is always on beautiful plates and dishes, not aluminum trays. There are always compliments on the foods from the guests. We are always a happy with the selections. Their website makes it easy to browse their menu and I always receive a reply promptly when I submit an event request online. DNL Catering is on my preferred vendor list when I meet with future clients. I have used them in my own home numerous times. They are my 'go to' caterers for any event.

Richmond Main Street was one of the first catering jobs that Quiche and Carry ever did. Deborah was great. She was very attentive to us as customers and wanted to make sure that she got it right. The quiches were delicious. She is very creative and knows how to mix flavors. I had never tried a dessert quiche before and was a bit skeptical but it was fantastic. I would highly recommend her. Although it was her first job she was great. We have used her since that first time and will continue to use her. Yum!

I had a great experience with hiring Kitchenina as our caterers for an event with 40 people. The communication was always prompt, polite and friendly. They did a great job on the day of the event to ensure that the food was delivered on time (despite the traffic/weather conditions) and made my job as the event organizer much easier. I would definitely work with Kitchenina again in the future, and regret that I did not take photos of the food! (Thanks for the brownies as well!)

I've known Grace for many years. I have been over to her house for home cooked meals that were truly gourmet, and delicious. She also prepared some food and sold it from her home. On the level of catering for large parties, I went to our friend Dave's party last month were Grace did the catering. The food was flawless, delicious, with great presentation, and great variety. I strongly recommend Grace for catering your events.

Worked with Graham on a casual dinner with friends. He provided soup course, beef, vegie option, sides and dessert. Every dish was mouth-watering delicious. Portion sizes were perfect and every dish came back with not one morsel on it. Creative menu, happy to take feedback and modifications, super responsive. Can't wait to work with him again.

This caterer prepared lunch for 30 people on Memorial Day for us. We found them on Thumbtack and we’re glad we went with them! Everything was as expected or better! First of all, their smoked ribs were AMAZING. Everything else (chicken skewers-very tender, deviled eggs with smoked bacon, garlic and honey meatballs, grilled corn, vegan pasta salad, arugula salad) was delicious as well. Everyone should add their Bourbon Banana Pudding for dessert, because it was so good! I love Paul Martin's banana cream pie, but this pudding was even better! I would definitely go back to them again. Too bad I forgot to take some photos!! And yes, they are very professional. Just tell Matt what you are looking for and he'll come up with a menu for you. Easy!

Angela is an exceptional caterer! We hired her for a long (10 day) job for a production crew, serving multiple meals for VERY hungry people. I heard consistently that they were the best meals the crew had ever had on a job. She was very thorough in her choices, and made it obvious that she takes pride in what she cooks, plans, and serves. We plan to make Angela our go-to caterer for ALL future jobs. As much as I would love to tell you to stay away so we can hoard her...you HAVE to hire Angela and try her meals for yourself!

My friend recently celebrated her 50th birthday. Her wish? To have a catered dinner at home where she could relax and enjoy a wonderful evening of food, vino and friends. My decision to go with Rainbow Chefs was the BEST CHOICE! They worked with me to create the menu which the chef cooked to PERFECTION! It was a joy to see the guests "ooohh" and "aahhh" as each dish was brought out...Having Rainbow Chefs prepare, serve and clean up allowed the hostesses (me and my friend) to enjoy the event too! It was truly a magical night...I highly recommend them!

Don't look any further: LL Services is the BEST! They catered a women's luncheon in my home, and I found their friendly manner, professionalism and responsiveness to be unmatched. They offered flexible menu options with fresh, creative and delicious selections. My guests went back not only for seconds, but thirds, and they all left with a business card for their own catering needs. Don't pass up the opportunity to have them cater your next event.

Awesome food from Cheri the owner. Creative dinners with creative appetizers all at a great price. Would recommend requesting ONLY Cheri as your chef for your event - others in employ are not nearly as competent.
