Having Sat cook for my family of five has been nothing short of life-changing. He spends the afternoon in my kitchen preparing healthy dinners, breakfasts and snacks according to my family's complicated dietary needs and varied taste preferences. The food is truly gourmet, and I'm spending the time playing with my three young kids rather than meal planning and cooking. His knowledge of nutrition and his ability to cook "whole" while navigating several food allergies has surprised my expectations; and the kids cheer when "Sat is cooking!"

I cannot begin to describe Stephanie without using the word "unbelievable." As part of our wedding day, I could not have imagined the food and catering going more smoothly. From the initial bid process, communication prior to the wedding, and meeting up to get familiar with the site, Stephanie was responsive, kind, and flexible. She listened and modified her menu according to changing needs, and wow we were pleased. Our menu had three food options (vegan, chicken, and tri-tip) and all were 100% incredible. She had the food timed to perfection, and presented beautifully. Our guests could not believe the quality of the food, especially given that she fed 73 people entirely on her own. So many of our guests were coming up to us to describe how amazing the food was!! We would recommend Stephanie to ANYONE who needs caterer. We were incredibly beyond happy and pleased with her work. She made our day all the more special as we did not have to worry about a thing from set-up to clean-up. You would be silly not to hire her for your catering needs.

I can't say enough about Andrea's catering service. Food was not only DELICIOUS it was unique. A feast of spicy flavors. Each dish was well prepared--cooked to perfection. Andrea was very easy to communicate with. Very patient even through my busy event preparation stage. She arrived on time on each of our meetings, returned every phone call or email. Most importantly, she easily set up all our food for our garden party in very timely fashion. I'll definitely use Andrea again and highly recommend her for all catering events!!

Graham came to our rescue to cater for sister-in-law's memorial service. He made what was a difficult day for our family a lot easier. His food is delicious. He's very professional and really listens to what you are looking for at your event and works with you to get all the details correct.

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.

Rose Johnson & her entire crew were fantastic! We hired her for a 50th wedding anniversary party that we were hosting in our backyard for about 50x guests. She's great with communication - she was quick to get us a quote, a sample menu, and walk us through what she would need/suggest for the day of the event. She was very flexible, and easily accommodated my mother-in-law's low sodium diet requirement. Most importantly though, her food was wonderful! Her appetizers were plentiful, and the main course & sides were delicious. I was worried about having dried out food (as we were doing a buffet), but the food was cooked perfectly. She kept me on budget, and really, she went above & beyond what I expected from a caterer! Her staff were friendly with the guests, they helped pour drinks, set up chairs, and left my kitchen clean at the end of the night!! I would recommend her to others in a heartbeat!

I recently worked with 350 Food co and was pleased and impressed with the service I received! They were precise and followed my exact directions layed out to bring my vision of the evening to life. Usually it's good food and unprofessionalism or professionalism with mediocre food but they had great food and professional as well, I'll definitely continue doing business with them in the future and recommend to anyone.

Excellent experience; Annicette put together an appropriate menu quickly and with no fuss, was easy to communicate with, and executed efficiently. We were late getting back to the house but she let herself in and got started on the prep work and was able to adjust the timing of the meal. All the food was delicious and Annicette was a delight to be with. Highly recommended.

We hired Farm to Table (Zachary Albright) to come to our house and prepare a meal for a birthday dinner for 14 people. The food was ABSOLUTELY amazing I wouldn't change a thing. The menu was extensive and the price was reasonable. I would suggest that he bring a helper as it was a little overwhelming for one person to prepare. I would highly recommend Farm to Table.

Nikolitsa's food is SO delicious! I have yet to try anything Nikolitsa has made that I haven't loved. She cooks up some of the best vegan food I have ever tasted and I have been vegetarian or vegan for over 20 years. Nikolitsa is professional and personable and keeps her menu constantly changing with amazing new recipes. This is the kind of food that could turn meat eaters into vegans; everyone I recommend Nikolitsa's food to loves it.

What an incredible pop-up and delicious food! Dennis was awesome in working with our organization for our holiday party. He was very responsive and helped us organize platters for ~80 people. His food was demolished by our team well before the night ended. Highly recommend!
