My sister told me that "no one remembers the food at a weddings!" However after she had the food of Chef Pete she told my mom, "I was wrong- because people will definitely remember THIS dinner!" Everyone was commenting on how good the food was! We even had a diverse range of dietary restrictions in the crowd. Pete made me feel confident in his catering services from day 1. He was great about calling on the phone and then following up with email for final quote. The food was exceptional especially for a wedding of 80 people! Pete also had great staff who everyone commented on. They had matching outfits and looked very professional. Definitely hire Pete Coleman if you want the wedding dinner of your dreams. Oh and this was all the week of the fires and he was super flexible about last minute changes to our venue and to our date. He was seriously the best. Thank you Chef Pete!
Hired Rocco for drop-off catering service for a party hosted at home. Delivery was right on time and the main dish of my order, "Salmon in Papillotte," was cooked with perfection. Juicy and tender, it was loved by all the guests. Rocco was also very easy to work with throughout the messaging back and forth in deciding on the menu and portion. His price was a bit toward the high end side but overall the experience was very satisfactory.
I highly recommend this company for any catering services you need! My company hired Taqueria Cazadores for our Christmas party, the food was a hit! We are a dominantly Hispanic work place and everyone raved about the food especially the carnitas (best I've had). I will definitely recommend them to any one looking for great food for a great price! thank you again Evan your friends at PPandL
A Plus Catering catered for my wedding in March 2016. They arrived on time and went the extra mile to make sure that everything went well and were fantastic! Their staff and Jeanine were great to work with.
Kitchenina provides high-quality, nutritious and organic meals for our events. They have a variety of dishes catering to different tastes and dietary preferences but the one thing that is true across all of them is that they are delicious! We're happy we found such a great catering service.
Deborah catered my 70th birthday for 45 people. The food was excellent, was abundant, arrived on time, and was exactly as ordered. Deborah did not bring along plates, napkins, and cutlery as pre-arranged, but fortunately I had enough on hand. She offered to go buy some but it was not necessary. However, her attention to detail was a bit lacking in that regard. I found communicating with her over the phone to be delightful. Her written communication (via email) was less than good. She tended to either not respond or to respond in short one liners that did not answer my questions. So, I took to calling her which worked out well and allayed my anxieties that we really were working together. All in all, I had a great experience with her and everyone praised the food. I would use her again, but would stick to direct phone contact and to remind her of any pertinent details closer in time to the event to insure that she covered them all. She is a lovely person and was accommodating and professional. (p.s. Everyone especially loved the spring rolls with peanut sauce, which ran out way before the quiches did.)
Celebrations by Chet Chase is a first class catering company. The food is delicious and elegantly prepared. Chet is wonderful and charming. I wholeheartedly recommend Celebrations by Chet!
Grace provided a delicious 5 course meal for my husband's birthday right in our own home. It was amazing! The appetizer of endive and Serrano ham was great. The seafood soup with shrimp, clams, lobster mussels and white fish in a tomato veggie base was delish! And my 3 years old was licking her plate after the chocolate mousse cake. We were so full and happy. Great food served at home!
Daniella made our July 4th celebration the best yet! Her delectable menu choices were just perfect for the occasion. Everything was so beautifully and appetizingly displayed, and most importantly...every dish was delicious! Looking forward to our next celebration......DaniBensimon Catering will be our caterer of choice from now on!
Kitchen 350 catered my grandmothers’ 75th birthday party and the food was amazing! I would definitely recommend their services for any event.
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!
I attended a small dinner party that LL Services catered. The dinner was absolutely delicious and healthy at the same time. LL Services were professional and informative about the dishes they presented. Their demeanor was pleasant and easy to be around. They added a nice but subtle touch to the ambience of the evening.
Chef Cheri catered an event for an organization that I am associated with and it was outstanding. Cheri food presentation was excellent and the food as so good. I was actually surprised at how much food she prepared for the price. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for catering services at a great price.
I didn't end up going with this company, but not because they weren't amazing because they were. Kristine responded to my thumbtack request immediately and not only did she take the time to give her condolences for the loss of my grandmother but she was sweet and made the process easy. You could tell by her email to me that she actually read everything I said about my event because she addressed it all and I didn't have to ask but one question. I highly recommend using "In This Moment" for your catering needs. I know I will the next chance I have.
I worked with Dennis at Liberation Foods to cater my son's 6th birthday party. The food was DELICIOUS. My only regret was that we only had 1 hour of food time (due to the venue, not Liberation)! :) Highly recommend and will definitely use again.
We recently hired Eileen and her staff with What's Cookin to cater a backyard luau party. From beginning to end, she was very easy to work with. The bottom line is that her food was AMAZING! What a talent!! Our party guests raved about the dishes she prepared. Since the party was themed, we worked together to come up with the perfect selections for a summer luau. Her staff that worked the party with her were super friendly and smiley, professional, and instinctively knew how to "be there" for our guests needs. As the hosts of the party, my husband and I were able to focus entirely on our guests, which is exactly what we were looking for. We were all very impressed with everything, and are certain we found our new favorite caterer! Thanks Eileen and your staff for a job well done!
Karla is very friendly, helpful and super easy to work with. She catered a birthday dinner for a dozen people and made excellent Brazilian dishes, including vegan options. We especially liked the cheese bread! Service was excellent and attentive and she cleaned up thoroughly at the end. Would highly recommend.
We hired Mark to cater brunch for our wedding, and we were very impressed! He replies in a timely manner to questions, requests, and concerns. From the moment he reached out in response to my project on Thumbtack, Mark worked hard to accommodate our needs. He made sure that we felt good about the menu before we booked him, and had us over for a tasting. Additionally, he noticed an item we didn't originally include on the menu and graciously added it to the meal (potatoes!). Many of our guests made comments to us about how much they enjoyed the food, and everyone (about 130 people) had as much to eat as they wanted with food left over. My only regret was that as the bride I didn't have the chance to eat as much of that AMAZING French toast as I wanted!
Olive Cater team catered my birthday party in February and it was absolutely delicious. The buffet looked beautiful and had a wide variety of dishes with many vegetarian options. The shawarma was out of this world! Even though we eat a lot, we had leftover for the next day. It was fun to see the team cook and prepare the food at my house and they left the kitchen cleaner than it was before. I highly recommend Arkadi and Elinor service.
Food was good - I ordered the sushi trays and thai food. Very punctual and set up catering service. Highly recommend them. I have use them several times for our catered lunches.
Rainbow Chef's catered our company Halloween Party and did an amazing job! They served up homemade small bites with personal touches, including adorable coffin-shaped brownies and ricotta and spinach eyeballs. Everything tasted amazing. We highly recommend them!
