Pete and his team catered my birthday party and did an incredible job - super professional and personable, unbelivable food, and our guests all thought he was great. Highly recommended!

Rocco came to our family's home to cook for a birthday party for my mother. He did a fabulous job! He was very charming and thoughtful, and he made the experience so easy. His background is a colorful story to hear and he is quite experienced and knowledgeable. He thought us some things while he cooked that we are now using while we cook. The food was phenomenal! We plan to hire him for all of our future events. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.

The 16th Birthday Party was a success. So what went well? Everything. We could not have asked for a better catering service or a more professional/and personable company to work with. Thanks for everything. BTW - the food was excellent. Michele

A Plus Catering did a fantastic job for my New Year's Eve/50th birthday party. Jennine sourced all the rentals and the DJ. Everything was delivered and picked up as requested. Full cost including rentals, DJ, bartender and two servers was kept within my budget. With Jennine providing everything needed I was able to relax in Hawaii, returning home late on the 30th. Everyone arrived timely, we had delicious appetizers and music playing before the guests arrived. Hot appetizers, drinks and a champagne toast at midnight! Thank you for making this happen Jennine ❀️

Excellent food for a birthday party. We had appetizers. The samosa was a big hit with vegetarians and meat eaters. Using Kitchenina was tremendous!

I could not be more satisfied Passionate Plates and Alisa Hill. She as absolutely fabulous! My husbands 60th birthday party was so much fun and came off without a snag due to Alisa's great planning and organizational skills. She helped me with details over the phone, we came up with a plan that she executed flawlessly. The food was incredibly tasty and impressed ALL my guests. I have recommended her, will continue to recommend her and can't wait to use her again!! Thanks again Alisa!

We had a beautiful outdoor birthday party. This was a 70th birthday, with teens and youngsters helping out. Chet's attitude and kind interest in our small party made the occasion wonderful. He prepared amazing oysters, shrimp, and lobsters on the outdoor grill and provided an elegant table service. He was patient with the timing problems presented by toddlers in the party, and made sure everyone had fun! We stayed in budget and Chet was very respectful to support my choices for decor, timing and supplies. I can't wait to hire him again!

Grace catered our baby's first birthday party and everyone raved about the food! The salmon cream cheese caper rolls were my favorite! She was very communicative and willing to do whatever we needed (including making everything gluten-free). Setup was a snap and everything was yummy. Thank you so much!

Daniella was a perfect fit from Day 1. She made my birthday dinner party for 12 feel effortless with her thoughtful menu ideas, careful ingredient sourcing, flexibility, and responsiveness. It was seamless! She prepared a three course Mediterranean/North African meal, including hummus with tahine sourced from Israel, fresh veggie hors d'ouevres from the farmers market, delicious goat cheese/beet salad, a succulent chicken tagine, roasted veggies and cardamom spiced rice, and for the grand finale, a banana chocolate cake to die for! Perhaps most of all, I appreciated her openness and friendliness. She was a lovely addition in our home while she prepared the meal, and a true professional. Very, very happy that I was able to find her and have recommended her to others since.

We hired Aurora Catering for a milestone birthday party in our back yard for 20 people. They were great to work with, and the food was fabulous. Nearly every guest at the party left with their business card. Our only complaint - there weren't enough leftovers for us to keep the party going for the rest of the weekend. ;-)

Angela was so great in accommodating my last minute birthday party. We needed a mixed menu of vegetarian, meat, nut-free, and gluten free. The menu was fabulous- flavorful stuffed chicken, veggie dumplings with marinara sauce (omg), and out of this world ice cream cake (who would've ever known it was gluten free!). Another thing is she didn't just drop off the food- she helped us serve it. We loved the personal service and attention to detail! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ». Definitely hiring her again!

Lucas created and executed a beautifully, delicious menu for my mother's 75th birthday party. It was a dinner party of 20, and he accommodated all "special" requests. Pleasing 20 people at once is no easy feat, but Lucas, and his server Doug, worked flawlessly together to make every one feel special and important. The food was amazing- meyer lemon cream shrimp fettucine-Yum - chateaubriand steak- delicious and cooked to perfection, shrimp canapes, decadent mac and cheese- he pulled it off to perfection. We could not have asked for anything more - it was beyond our expectations for this very special evening. Lucas is a great find!

I've had the opportunity to work with Miss Harper as her photographer on many occasions. Whether we are providing services for a small private house party with 20 guests, with a culturally enriched theme, to providing services for a 100th year life celebration, we have always gone above and beyond to provide the best service possible for our clients. Through observing her process of developing a experience, planning all the details with the client for a wedding, to the detail with a client for a birthday party with more then 100 guests. Her attention to detail and follow though with the requests of clients has provided her opportunity to provide services to several clients in the corporate arena in the finance and technology sectors. Most don't know what goes into the planning and preparation to deliver and execute a catered experience. Our clients trust us to provide what they have requested, based on what's ordered. When it comes to designing and delivering productions which are memorable and leave pleasant memories, the details matter. Our clients expect us to think through everything and have a backup plan for those unexpected situations which may crop up. To all those who are considering contracting with her. I encourage you to look at some of the photos which have been captured and represent the quality of work she executes. Contact her and let her know your desires in a clear communicative way and you'll be glad you made the choice to keep it Phiesty, with Chef Cheri Harper.

Dan did a great job on a birthday dinner I hosted recently at my home. He showed up on time, prepared and served a delicious meal (the herb rubbed pork loin is incredible), and left my kitchen tidy and clean. I'll definitely be hiring Dan again in the future!

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.
