I had envisioned a very special party for 56 guests and wanted everything perfect. I interviewed 3 different companies with a special plan in mind. Chef Paul Mandalou was the only one, of the top ten rated caterers, that was willing to work with me. I wanted my party to feed people during the entire 4 hours without putting them on a schedule. One caterer submitted a beautiful presentation but it was something that you would see at a wedding with stations of different food. All food would be put out at the same time and cocktail hour was limited to one hour max before the entrée was served. This is not what I envisioned. The other guy had a nice presentation too but, once again, I would be limited to so much time for cocktails, appetizers, entrée and dessert. This was not what I had envisioned. I also wanted to sample some of the things that I wanted on the menu and the other 2 companies said they would do so but they were not very happy about this request. Chef Paul put together some amazing things for me to try 2 weeks after I contacted him. He came to my home to do so unlike the other 2 companies where I had to go to their facility. Not only was the sampled food fabulous but he was also willing to tweek a certain appetizer to my liking. I wound up getting 12 appetizers, a fabulous entrée with grilled vegetables and 3 desserts. Chef Paul is Greek so he made me 2 Greek dishes that were so good I will have to keep him on retainer just so I can get more. It is now 2 weeks after the party and my guests are still talking about it. Everyone stayed during the 4 hour time span, which is a very good sign that things are good, and the party continued into the wee hours. Everyone is still raving about the food and how personable Chef Paul was and his staff. I had 2 waiters and a Mixologist that he recommended and they would all hard working, friendly, on time and great with the clean up. Chef Paul may not have a pretty presentation like other companies but his food and service far exceed any other caterer I have used in the past. His presentation of everything is beautiful and he gives a 100 percent. He was present the whole time and did not make a lot of things in advance, like a lot of companies do, so everything was fresh and made in my home. My guests are telling me that this was the best party they have ever been to. If it were not for Chef Paul, I doubt that people would be saying this. People are telling me it was the party of the year. Would I hire Chef Paul again? Yes, without a doubt. He will be my special chef for life and I cannot wait to throw another party that he will cater. If you do not hire him, you are a fool ten fold. If you want pretty presentations and mediocre food, then don't hire him. If you want a party where the caterer tells you how it will work, then don't hire him. If you want fabulous food that people will rave about with gorgeous presentations, fabulous staff and a willingness to work with you, then Chef Paul is your man. I know I will never hire anyone else. Together we pulled off the best party I have ever thrown and I know this would never have happened if I had not hired him. If you want to call me and speak to me in person regarding a recommendation, I am more than willing to do so. Chef Paul has my permission to give out my home number upon request. Many thanks again to Chef Paul and his wonderful staff for making my special event spectacular.

I have been to several events which Taste of the Senses catered. They all have been above and beyond my expectations. The quality and quantity of food surpasses those of other caterers at the events. His menu includes tri-tip, ceviche, and tamales, among other delicious, homemade authentic Mexican fare. Arturo and his crew go to all lengths to adjust to the event and circumstances, whether it is a wedding, a quincianera, or a fundraiser. They are friendly, hard-working, and talented, and I recommend Taste of the Senses highly.

We hired Lindsey to bartend for our 40th birthday party. The party was 70's theme and Lindsey did a great job creating some signature cocktails and shots and poured cocktails that were popular in the 1970's. She even came in costume. She was on time, professional and kept the bar clean and organized all night.

I hired Mimi for my 40th birthday party and could not be more pleased with the result. We were planning a party for 100 guests (not an easy task to wow that many people) and Mimi knocked it out of the park! I shared my Pinterest board with her and what colors I had envisioned and Mimi designed a party that amazed everyone including people passing by. You could see the decorations from the street - that's how much it came to life. Mimi made my "mad" party of going down the rabbit hole a reality. She delivered on her promise of throwing me a one-of-a kind and memorable event. It was the perfect way to celebrate this milestone. I shared my vision with her for having a Mad Hatter themed party and she brought it to life. Mimi brought ideas to the table that I hadn't even considered and it was amazing. From the minute you walked in, guests were "wow'd" (which is what Mimi told me would happen) and throughout the venue details were incorporated into the decor and food. It was exactly what I wanted and more! Mimi was great to communicate with over email, phone and in person. When you're getting emails from her at 1am, you know she's hard at work and dedicated to throwing you an awesome party. Thank you again MIMI!!! She put her heart and soul into designing and personalizing my party. Mimi's energy, dedication and creativity shined through, producing an event I will cherish forever.

Polkadot Dinners is our favorite caterer. Rachel is one of the most professional caterers I know in the area. Her food is absolutely amazing and her presentation of her display of food just ties in with the theme of her menu which is a added plus. Definitely within anyone budget she can make it happen. Highly recommended.

I had a company party catered by Cowabunga BBQ. First let me say as a business owner it's nice to see professionals at work and that's what David and his wife are professional. I did not have to worry about anything. They got there on time, had it set up for me and my employees and the food was great some of the best Barbeque I've had. Cleaned up when we were done eating. Like they never was there. Can't wait til the next time. Thanks David

Retirement party with 75-100 guests in attendance. The food was outstanding, got lots of compliments, and it was very nice to have his staff there to help out. They left our kitchen spotless! Jim was very easy to work with, and more than accommodating in our budget and food selection. Highly recommend!!!

I had a very unique event that Pheasant Wood Catering provided food and beverage for. It was a large party and Chef Timothy was very flexible and accommodating for the special food and alcohol order that my event needed. He was well-informed, involved, and patient throughout the whole process. Overall he was easy to work with and really went out of his way to make the event a success. We certainly didn't make it easy on him, but the services provided were amazing!

The People's Kitchen is very well diversed in the food industry. Everything they made you could taste was made from scratch and with love. Some people working in this industry just do it for the love of money. With The Peoples Kitchen is the opposite they make the food for the love of cooking and pleasing the guests.

They are the Truth! Chefs and owners Roger and Dee are my new go to caterers! Their warm, and friendly staff were extremely pro! I've been put in charge of a few company events before but NEVER has the food tasted this good! I mean ultimately that's what it comes down to is the food. They definitely love what they do and it shows. The best part of the day for me was when my boss waved at me from across the way to get my attention. Then he pointed at his plate and gave me a very enthusiastic thumbs up! That's never happened before. Three D Catering are the best!

I can smell Magpie Productions chicken wings right now! MMMM good! And those roasted garlic crab and shrimp scampi dishes are the BEST! I can’t forget her amazing pasta dishes they are always filled with the right ingredients. And, what I appreciate most about Magpie Productions is her variety of dishes that range from Southern to gourmet. I would highly recommend Magpie Productions catering to anyone who is looking for tasty food that will delight the palate. And by the way, give her a party theme and she’s run with it! Bon appetite Stephanie T.
