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!

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.

I have hired many caterers over the years for various events. I was looking for an experienced caterer for our son's wedding rehearsal BBQ for 130 people at our house in June. I meant Paul Lira through Thumbtack and he promptly returned my call. We set up a tasting date and the food was so delicious I hired him on the spot. His menu is locally sourced, fresh and all of it tasty for every palate. Paul and his staff were a pleasure to work with....professional and friendly. Wedding RSVP's can be slow in coming in and the few updates I sent Paul within my timeline were graciously accepted. I would highly recommend Nitro to anyone looking for delicious food prepared to the highest of standards and delivered with professionalism, on time by a great guy who loves what he does and brings a cool vibe with him!

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!)

Had a Christmas Party for 30 people in my home. Food was prepared on-site. As guests arrived first and caterers second, the kitchen was full of guests nibbling on appetizers. Alisa and her assistant blended right in working around guests. The food was delicious! All guests commented about how wonderful the food was and how pleasant Alisa and her assistant were. Clean-up was provided, and they did a great job at that too. It made enjoying guests and myself fantastic! Planning for the event was seamless, organized and expeditious! When I have another party for my 50th this year, Passionate Plates and Alisa will be on "speed-dial"!

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.

Dawn and Marty were simply amazing. Marty is the chef and is more passionate about food then any chef I've ever met. He went beyond the extra mile to prepare amazing food for our wedding. The quality of the food and the the caliber of service provided by Dawn was outstanding. We live over 300 miles away from where the wedding was held so we had to hire our caterer remotely. We were worried about that at first, but Dawn put us completely at ease. She arranged for a site visit and then a private tasting at their facility. That was AMAZING! Appetizers, main courses, desert AND wine. What a great preview. Dawn helped us coordinate our order with the rental company and gave lots of helpful tips. Marty accommodated a special request my bride wanted which was to replace the traditional wedding cake with a tiered 60 cup Creme Brûlée desert tower! Wow... incredible. I heard several guest snuck two helpings :) Dawn and Marty were not just Caterers, they became family to us as they helped make the day a huge success! We would absolutely recommend their service to others and will use them again!

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!

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.

JKs Caterers did our event for approximately 175 people. The food was great and their service was great. The only issue we had was that the temperature of the food was lukewarm to cold. Aside from that I would highly recommend.

I wanted my own birthday to be one I could enjoy, I love cooking and I am always the one hosting and doing it myself! I decided for the first time to hire someone so I could have the night to enjoy. This is where Zack came in. I canteven begin to describe how great he was! He took over everything and made the night perfect! He worked with me on the menu and made everything seem possible, his menu he sent me looked amazing and creative. He arrived on time and immediately started preparing. The food was beyond my expectations, three entrees, which included a steak dish with delicious sauces, a Moroccan chicken stew and a shrimp dish with kale and corn, four side dishes, all unique and so perfectly complimentary to the entrees! My guests were so pleased. It really made my birthday! Thank you so much! Can't wait to have you back!

Olive Cater team are simply the best! They catered for me an office party and my parents 40th anniversary. Even though the menus were totally different both events were a success! Arkadi is a talented and creative young chef. His food is beautifully presented and it tastes amazing! I got many compliments on those events and I look forward to having Arkadi and Elinor cater my next event.

Not only was it one of the most affordable catering companies I’ve used 96H was always quick to respond to any questions I had. The people were extremely nice and were willing to do whatever it would take to make sure the entire experience was above and beyond.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
