These guys are without a question a perfect 5 star team. We hired them for a corporate luncheon of approx. 325 people, with about 1/3 of our campus vegetarian. We have never received such an overwhelming of compliments EVER! I have been doing this for over 10 years now and these guys are by far the very best we have ever hired. Although we only hired them to drop the food, no service, Evan saw we were a little scattered so he had his entire crew stay and help us. Not only were they professional and knowledgeable, but they are the nicest, most down to earth group of guys I had the pleasure to work along side. And the food is without question excellent! Generous amounts of everything, everything cooked to perfection and sides galore! Every single one of our employees raved about this find and can't wait for us to have them back. These guys are truly a 5 star outfit

Meal was amazing; we asked for a 100% vegetarian meal and all of the courses were fantastic; he really knows how to prepare vegetarian food. Sat was engaging and professional and the service and food were outstanding. We understand why he was voted best personal chef of Thumbtack - we would definitely hire Sat again!

I have been using Goldstone the past 3 yrs for our sales meeting for Breakfast and Lunch. Food is fresh, warm and tasty. Price is reasonable. They always deliver on time, setup etc. Their scones and Brownies is out of this world. The menu is great. Will use them again. Steve is great to work with. I am happy with their food and service and have referred to other depts. too like Career day and other sort of Events.

Andrea created a tasting menu which was creative and varied, with some real standouts. She also had great assistants who served us thoughtfully, as did she. Andrea and her crew stayed longer than was contracted for without complaint. I had greatly underestimated the time our Murder Mystery Dinner part would take. Everyone raved about the food and service and thought I was the perfect hostess because Andrea took such good care of us.

We hired Chef Sean to cook and serve at a dinner party for 8 ppl in our home. Our experience with Chef Sean was fantastic. He was extremely responsive during the menu planning process. He showed up early on the day of the event. He was completely organized, brought printed menus and all of his needed supplies, and the food he prepared was delicious. He was delightful with our guests and extremely professional and friendly with all of the service he provided during the dinner itself. Would definitely work with him again in the future.

I've known Grace for many years. I have been over to her house for home cooked meals that were truly gourmet, and delicious. She also prepared some food and sold it from her home. On the level of catering for large parties, I went to our friend Dave's party last month were Grace did the catering. The food was flawless, delicious, with great presentation, and great variety. I strongly recommend Grace for catering your events.

This was my first large party of 50 people and I was very nervous but Ely reassured me that we would rock! The food and service were outstanding. Many of my guests commented on how great the food tasted. Ely was there early to put the food out and assist in any way I needed her help with setting up the food table. She was extremely professional and a delight to work with. I will hire Ely again for my next large party. I couldn't have done it without her.

GREAT SERVICE We got married yesterday and had to post a review immediately because Affordable Chef was so great! Chef Mark was punctual in replying to my questions before the big day, which, as an out-of-town bride, was very reassuring! At the last minute, Chef Mark was unable to attend the reception, but his on-site chef made delicious food, and the staff were phenomenal! There was one staff member in particular who took an interest in my Husband and I. She told us that we were her "celebrities for the day," made sure we ate appetizers before we walked in, escorted us to the buffet first, and was constantly checking on our drinks. She also took an interest in our families, leading many people to tell us how amazing she was! The bartender Chef Mark sent was also lovely, knew her stuff, and made our signature cocktails perfectly! All in all, a great experience and a company we would trust our next big event to!

Nikolitsa's food is SO delicious! I have yet to try anything Nikolitsa has made that I haven't loved. She cooks up some of the best vegan food I have ever tasted and I have been vegetarian or vegan for over 20 years. Nikolitsa is professional and personable and keeps her menu constantly changing with amazing new recipes. This is the kind of food that could turn meat eaters into vegans; everyone I recommend Nikolitsa's food to loves it.
