I contacted Busy Bee Cook for Me to cater my Dad's 90th birthday party for about 40 people in our senior complex. She came and checked out the venue and made some recommendations for the food and service that were right on the mark for what I was looking for. On the day of the party, she and her crew showed up right on time, and both the food and service were totally amazing. People who were there have been saying that it was the party against which all other parties they ever attend will always be measured. And Dad enjoyed himself immensely. Thanks so much to Lilian and her crew for helping make the party for my Dad such a great success!.
I chose June to cater my husband's 40th birthday party. I had some specific food requests that were not on her menu and she was more than happy to accommodate! Everything she made was thoroughly enjoyed by our guests! I will use her for any future events and recommend her highly! Thank you June
WOW!! What a fantastic evening with Shawna from Best Mobile Chef. From the moment I first contacted Shawna, I KNEW I wanted to work with her. Shawna is friendly, helpful, and an AWESOME chef. She prepared an incredible meal and yummy desserts for our Christmas dinner party. Our guests were so impressed. Thank you, Shawna!!
They did a terrific job for my twins' birthday party. A great selection of food that was delicious. All our friends were impressed. They showed up on time, set up, cooked and served our guests, then cleaned up. It made the day super easy on us so we could just relax and enjoy being with our guests.
We had an excellent experience. We used bleu catering for a birthday party of about 20. The price was reasonable for the quality and quantity of food. Very responsive to our requests and worked with our budget. I would use them again for an event.
Fantastic meal, way exceeded expectations and was much more affordable than other private chefs we contacted. Would highly recommend to anyone hosting a dinner!! Originally we looked at making a group dinner reservation to dine out in Palm Springs for a birthday party, having Cucina Migrante come to our vacation rental made for a more relaxing and unforgettable dining experience. Francesco and Adisa are true pros!
Stacy made a great dinner for our dinner party. I haven't ever done this before, I always cook myself. It was a fun treat to enjoy with my guests vs. being in the kitchen cooking. Not something I can afford to do often, but definitely fun to try! Thank you!
I attended a dinner party prepared by Chef Leslie that was amazing in all aspects. The quality and presentation of the food was fit for a royal dinner. Great dinner and service! Would definitely recommend her for any type of catering need.
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
By far the best idea and decision for a teen birthday party ever!! He brought them aprons, taught them about different kinds of knives and knife care, workspace and hand cleanliness, how to get the best deal at the grocery stores, how to cut up a chicken, how to filet fish, proper seasonings, taste testing, how to multitask in the kitchen to time things to hit the table at the same time and how to prepare dishes for complete meals. He was patient, thorough and totally entertaining to the teens. They were all so proud of their meal and all talked about how cool this party was. After the food was set on the table, he gave a description of each item being served, then he cleaned up the kitchen and exited while we sat down to dinner. He was absolutely amazing. He'd never done a birthday party because he usually teaches couples and does catering events but I'd highly recommend him.
We used BAPS! catering for our annual Halloween party for about 100 people. The food was AMAZING and a crowd pleaser. The prices were reasonable and Brad was professional and responsive; super helpful. They did drop-off service and set it up with everything we needed and extra supplies and food to replenish as things ran out. Would use them again and highly recommend them.
Awesome experience from start to finish. Almost more than the amazing food, we loved having Joan in our house. We instantly hit it off and our kids loved her as well. Joan and I planned a menu for an informal dinner party for my wife's birthday that consisted of salad, bolognese, and a deconstructed cannoli...all made from scratch in our kitchen. The food was absolutely delicious and her company was delightful. Next time we have a need for a personal chef, we will go straight to Joan!
Stephanie prepared an unforgettable dinner for my wife’s birthday. We had a dinner for four that was perfect. I’d recommend Chef Stephani without any hesitation. She’s fantastic.
I really don't think I can leave a review that quite reflects how happy I am with Luscious Bites Catering!! I organized a private housewarming party in last Friday for my boss, and from each stage of the planning phases, they were there, prepared and ready with options suitable to our budget, along with a wealth of information and suggestions. Jessica was an incredible help-- very professional, knowledgeable, and wonderfully friendly. Amazing first impression. Everyone was super responsive, really flexible, and ready for anything we threw their way. The food was beyond wonderful, and so obviously thought-out and cared-for. The staffers they sent were prepared, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful. Couldn't be happier with the quality, price, and care they took. A++++++

We hired a bartender to serve our Halloween party of approximately 40 guests. It was a late booking and due to lack of communication on the company's side, I was left stressing the day of the party not knowing if someone was going to show up. Thankfully, Von showed up and was fabulous. Other than the miscommunication, the service was great and they worked with my budget. I will use this company again.
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!
Heather was very prompt in replying and accommodating for my mom's surprise 60th dinner party. She pulled it all together fairly last minute and a few of the dishes were fan favorites (i.e. My mom wanted the recipes to duplicate another time)! The food was high quality and they even did a few demos upon my request. A few notes: There simply wasn't enough food. She cooked chile rellanos as one of the dishes and there weren't enough for one per person. We ran out of tortillas, chips, etc. I ended up paying extra for toddlers that didn't really eat, and there still was not enough. Also, I was called away during the meal a few times, to tend to my baby and got back, having not gotten to even taste a few of the dishes. Also, please note when booking, if you ask for a 6pm start time, that is when appetizers will begin. Eating dinner more like 7:30. With little ones, this was an oversight on my part. I didn't ask and it was never specified.
Paullete and her team did above and beyond catering for my wedding. On time, good food, & good servicing my guests! 5 stars all the way, you need her for your next party!
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.
Sam catered for my daughters birthday, his service was exceptional and the taco bar was great. We fed everyone and had some left overs for later. So no worries about running out of food for your guests. I'd hire him again due to his service and willingness to work with me on a budget. I definitely recommend his great food and service.
