I hired Baja's Tacos for my friends 40th birthday party. I really enjoyed how they prepare everything fresh on site from the tortillas to all the salsas they where made when they showed up. Everyone loved the food and we will hire them again without a doubt.

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!.

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.

Prime Cuts catered a 75 + person birthday party for us; everyone was thrilled with the taste, quality and portions! Ron does not skimp on quality. He cooked on site: tri-tip, chicken, ribs and delicious sides. I would recommend Prime Cuts hands down.

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!

David & his team did an amazing job for my 30th birthday party! He was very flexible and accessible at all times. I had a few occasions where I had to increase the number of guests, and he handled that with no problem. I also had a situation where I was not going to be at the house prior to the party, as we were on a large group party bus winetasting and he was accommodating and understanding and able to set up the food in our house without me even having to be there. The food was absolutely delicious and he worked with me to customize a menu that would fit the theme of the party but was also very affordable! He provided more than enough food and utensils, we were eating leftovers for days! I will definitely be using Steal Your Taste in the future! Thanks David!

I was searching online and I found a website called thumbtack so I put my name and what kind of catering I need and about the price and how many people that I needed this for, in about 30 minutes I started getting different quotes and different estimates for exactly what I was looking for, the first person to respond to me was Avian he called me and we discussed what I needed and gave me a couple different quotes eventually he ended up working with me and the price that I needed I thought for sure it was a home run and it turned out to be an absolute success the food was amazing and there was plenty of it he worked with whatever we needed him to work with with no complaints he was very professional and he was very understanding and our families time of grieving if I had to hire him again I would do it in an instant without thinking twice and I would recommend him to any of my friends and family but I can't really say that now because my whole family did eat from him and they loved it they raved about it. The taco cart was amazing everything was so fresh I'm actually craving some of the adobada he made... 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍 when the party was done he left us all the leftovers thank God cuz the next day after the party we didn't want to cook so we ended up making rolled tacos out of the meat that he left us and again it was still absolutely delicious I would like to say thank you again to Avian and his family for catering our party our family will have you back anytime thank you again so much

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.

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

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!

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
