Michael did a great job for our dinner party a while back. He made a fabulous tasting meal for dinner party of 10. Beef filet served over a Portebella mushroom with risotto, Chicken breast stuffed with Ricotta cheese and spinach with risotto and veggie selection. Everything was great and he even cleaned up the kitchen. Definitely would use again.

I hired Gourmet Lovers Catering for my parent's 40th anniversary party. I had them do the dinner and the cake for 100 people. Everything went very smoothly and it was very easy to work with them. Most importantly, the food got very high remarks from the guests. Because of the stress, I couldn't eat more than a few bites that day, but even the left overs the next day were great! If there is another event that I need catered in the future, I will definitely be giving them a call again.

I used Jose and his staff for our daughters 15th birthday party. We had a bit over 100 guests with the party lasting about 5 hours. I can't say enough about how good the food and service were. Jose and his staff were quick and efficient and super professional and friendly. Jose bailed me out with a few items i had forgotten (ice and dessert plates). I would and have recommend Jose's service to anyone looking to have a catered event.

I would highly recommend Lilian for your catering needs! She catered our business cocktail party for approximately 25 people in our home supplying tray-passed hors d'oeuvres. She possesses a vivacious personality and is extremely fun to work with! Her culinary skills are excellent...the food was fantastic! (My personal favorite was the Sicilian Swordfish Skewers.) She will be the first person I call when I need a caterer again!!

WE WOULD GIVE 10 STARS IF WE COULD!!!   Chef Mumsie and her team were impeccable from start to finish.  We bid for catering and event planning assistance for our three corporate events and loved the personalization and variety presented by Chef Mumsie.  Once we were put in contact with Bridgette the event committee had all of their questions answered professionally and in a timely manner.   She offered to give us a tasting which put our minds at ease since we were looking for multiple events with completely different expectations.  We contracted with the Chef Mumsie team for our Officer’s Retreat, Product Launch Press Party and the Employee/Family Picnic.  They proved that they can execute any type of event flawlessly…  the plated, upscale 5-course dinner for our 10 corporate officers and their spouses, the cocktail party with tray passed hors d’oeuvres for 200 during the new product launch and the fun, casual employee/family picnic for 500.  When completing three different events in three days at three different locations we somewhat expected some minor hiccups but to our astonishment not only did we get everything we wanted they even surprised us with things we never anticipated, such as the personalized ice sculpture for the officer’s dinner or the live chef action Flight! at the launch party and the cotton candy, popcorn and fondue stations for the picnic.  Those personal touches surprised us yes but they were also the things that took our events from nice to EXTRAORDINARY.  The planning committee has received ongoing praise for the success of our weekend’s festivities but we know we owe it all to Chef Mumsie and her incredible team.  Without a doubt, this is now officially our catering company for all our corporate events.   A million Thanks, Oliver!  J Davis and Compan

Chef Keith and his staff were great! He arrived early, set up amazing food stations and a bar for our non-profit cocktail party. The lamb chops, POKE station, "mushroom en croute", short rib skewers, cheese platter, and dessert bar complete with deep fried brownies were all a huge hit. Chef Keith really impressed my guests and made me look like a superstar hostess. I would hire him again and many of my friends and associates took his card for future catering events. Loved the bartender, server and Keith's helpers. My kitchen was spotless also...worth it!

We hired Chris after tasting her cooking at our friend's dinner party where she was the chef. She cooked dinner for us off & on during the week when our schedules got to be too much. This was during the early years of parenting and making dinner after being at work just didn't fit in my schedule. We loved having her in our home and her food was always so delicious and nurturing! I loved her help it freed up about 8 hours a week for me to spend time with the kids and or relaxing as a family. Dinner time was so enjoyable since I wasn't the one making it or cleaning up. I think she is a fine chef with a very special touch. We went to a Dinner party last summer where she was the cook...her roasted chicken w/ pasta and pesto was divine! Tracy

We had a phenomenal Thanksgiving Dinner prepared and delivered by BAPS catering. We were expecting about 20 people for our holiday dinner and BAPS catering delivered a wonderful meal that everyone loved. The turkey was moist, the vegetables, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, and pumpkin cheesecake were delicious. Needless to say, we had enough food to satisfy everyone and still had some great Thanksgiving leftovers. We would definitely recommend BAPS catering for everyone who wants tasty food cooked just the way you like. Thanks for helping us make our holiday dinner such a success!

We asked our friends and family members who had recently been married what they thought the most important part of the wedding was, and they unanimously said "THE FOOD". From the moment we requested a quote Bill's attention to detail made it a wonderful and memorable experience. We were provided with and absolutely delicious lunch at our tasting; where Bill customized our menu to fit our unique wedding theme. The staff was friendly, informative, professional and genuinely warm and kind. Bill's help however moved beyond his fabulous food. For any and EVERY coordination mishap, he was there with creative and inventive solutions. His staff went above and beyond, even assisting in set up and decoration. We were truly overwhelmed by their generosity and their willingness to be of assistance. On our wedding day, as we ran from the car to the venue to avoid the terrible storm; we were greeted by Bill with a mini buffet for the bridal party so that we would have a chance to actually eat at our wedding. To say the food was amazing is an understatement. I cannot describe how delicious it was or how beautifully and artfully arranged. I truly cannot do it justice. When asked, our guest said that hands down, it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. Our menu included custom flank steak sliders with asian slaw, a variety of sushi, mini ribs, chicken skewers, grilled vegetable stuffed crepes, procuitto wrapped asparagus, endive spoons filled with tabouleh, chicken sate, and so much more. The service was impeccable and after everything was done, the staff cleaned and left everything immaculate. Most importantly, Bill was sensitive and understanding of our situation. You see , we were two brides. Bill and his staff were shining examples of what it is to treat everyone with equality and dignity and respect. We were afraid of vendors not wanting to work with us and Bill took all that anxiety away. Through his vast network he found amazing and supportive vendors who were ready to celebrate with us and were empowered by our decision to get married. We cannot thank Bill enough for the many kindnesses he bestowed on us and we cannot wait to eat at his amazing restaurant again. - C & A

Daily Chew Catering dished up a bit of heaven on a plate for a holiday party recently and from the first time I contacted Carly until the last bit of food was gone, we were blown away by the entire experience. Daily Chew Catering offers a wide selection of menu options, so there's guaranteed to be something great for every palate, and everything is done well. Daily Chew does food service right, and I'll no doubt be quick to call back and start planning for our next event as soon as the time comes. Thank you for the professionalism, the amazing food, and your passion for great-tasting, incredible quality catering experience!

Ellena is incredible! She offers amazing food and exceptional service. She clearly loves what she does and is passionate about food and clients, offering creativity and customization. Whether looking to feed yourself or your family healthy meals or looking to host a knock-your-socks-off catered gathering - I work with her regularly for both and there is nothing she doesn't wow me with. The best Cuban sandwiches you have ever tasted for a fun Miami night theme, mashed potatoe bar for a midnight comfort food theme at a fancy holiday party - Ellena is creative, kind, and extremely talented. I would highly recommend her.

We hired Brian to cater heavy appetizers for a holiday cocktail party we hosted. Having never hired a caterer before I didn’t know what to expect outside of what my budget was. Brian was a pleasure to work with, suggesting a great initial menu based on our preferences and budget and then editing it as needed. He responded promptly to all my questions, reached out exactly one week ahead of our event for final headcount and to discuss and assured me he would make it a great event. On the day of, he and his lovely fiancé Stephanie arrived exactly on time and began set up and plating. Brian’s presentation was flawless and his flavors were delicious. So many of my guests complimented the food and several asked for his contact info. At the end of the night, not a single morsel of food was left! I couldn’t be happier with how our first catering experience went and would definitely hire Brian for future events.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
