Rocca fixed a great Dinner. The food was delicious which included Fish on a bed of Risotto with a desert that was light. We were completely satisfied by the food but also the overall ease in working with Rocco in setting up the right menu.

I had a great experience with hiring Kitchenina as our caterers for an event with 40 people. The communication was always prompt, polite and friendly. They did a great job on the day of the event to ensure that the food was delivered on time (despite the traffic/weather conditions) and made my job as the event organizer much easier. I would definitely work with Kitchenina again in the future, and regret that I did not take photos of the food! (Thanks for the brownies as well!)

Deborah catered breakfast for 170 people in our office. She talked through the event with me and helped to determine the best option for food (a standing event so needed something quick and easy for guests to grab and eat with their hands). She arrived on time and had everything set for our guests, and we had plenty of food for everyone. We'd definitely recommend her!

I had the pleasure of having Chet Chase cater for me in Florida. Chet catered numerous corporate events for me in my showroom in the Design Center of The Americas. He could cater a luncheon for 10 or a dinner for 25.Everyone always raved about him. His creations were delicious and his presentation superb. Chet also catered personal dinner parties in my home. He took care of everything from planning the menu to selecting party favors for me. Chet also helped me with my diet. He prepared lunches and dinners for me that were tasty and nutritious.I am not an easy person to please but when it comes to Chet Chase he is tremendous when it comes to cuisine and planning

I hired Grace for a small intimate bday dinner and the food was amazing! My family loved all the dishes and Grace was such a friendly and kind host. She explained what each dish was and gave us all enough time between dishes to really enjoy the food and savor it. The strawberry dessert at the end was my favorite. I really enjoyed my bday dinner. Thanks Grace!

This caterer prepared lunch for 30 people on Memorial Day for us. We found them on Thumbtack and we’re glad we went with them! Everything was as expected or better! First of all, their smoked ribs were AMAZING. Everything else (chicken skewers-very tender, deviled eggs with smoked bacon, garlic and honey meatballs, grilled corn, vegan pasta salad, arugula salad) was delicious as well. Everyone should add their Bourbon Banana Pudding for dessert, because it was so good! I love Paul Martin's banana cream pie, but this pudding was even better! I would definitely go back to them again. Too bad I forgot to take some photos!! And yes, they are very professional. Just tell Matt what you are looking for and he'll come up with a menu for you. Easy!

My friend recently celebrated her 50th birthday. Her wish? To have a catered dinner at home where she could relax and enjoy a wonderful evening of food, vino and friends. My decision to go with Rainbow Chefs was the BEST CHOICE! They worked with me to create the menu which the chef cooked to PERFECTION! It was a joy to see the guests "ooohh" and "aahhh" as each dish was brought out...Having Rainbow Chefs prepare, serve and clean up allowed the hostesses (me and my friend) to enjoy the event too! It was truly a magical night...I highly recommend them!

I attended a small dinner party that LL Services catered. The dinner was absolutely delicious and healthy at the same time. LL Services were professional and informative about the dishes they presented. Their demeanor was pleasant and easy to be around. They added a nice but subtle touch to the ambience of the evening.

I hired In This Moment to cater my sunset/evening wedding this fall. They managed appetizers, dinner, cake cutting, and bartending. We went with a Mexican buffet and people were telling me during the evening they thought it was great idea and very delicous. (We also had a mariachi band during arrivals and ceremony to tie together a light theme.) The groom and I stole a few minutes to eat some dinner ourselves and agreed! Several mentioned that they loved that there was some great guacamole and chips to snack on immediately after the ceremony while people mingled & moved to the indoor reception area. Kristine herself is friendly, calm, and highly responsive. I was an anxious bride and she made things simple for me. I always felt better after checking in with her or seeking her guidance. I am glad Kristine was able to take on our nearly last minute request (2+ weeks out?) and help make our lightly Mexican themed/DIY wedding be fun experience for our friends and family. Thank you!

Karla is very friendly, helpful and super easy to work with. She catered a birthday dinner for a dozen people and made excellent Brazilian dishes, including vegan options. We especially liked the cheese bread! Service was excellent and attentive and she cleaned up thoroughly at the end. Would highly recommend.

We hired Mark to cater brunch for our wedding, and we were very impressed! He replies in a timely manner to questions, requests, and concerns. From the moment he reached out in response to my project on Thumbtack, Mark worked hard to accommodate our needs. He made sure that we felt good about the menu before we booked him, and had us over for a tasting. Additionally, he noticed an item we didn't originally include on the menu and graciously added it to the meal (potatoes!). Many of our guests made comments to us about how much they enjoyed the food, and everyone (about 130 people) had as much to eat as they wanted with food left over. My only regret was that as the bride I didn't have the chance to eat as much of that AMAZING French toast as I wanted!

Olive Cater team catered my birthday party in February and it was absolutely delicious. The buffet looked beautiful and had a wide variety of dishes with many vegetarian options. The shawarma was out of this world! Even though we eat a lot, we had leftover for the next day. It was fun to see the team cook and prepare the food at my house and they left the kitchen cleaner than it was before. I highly recommend Arkadi and Elinor service.

It what can only be described as a limited and challenging environment, Rainbow Chefs provided a gourmet dinner for my executives that was truly exquisite. Everything about the process was handled well with great communication from Lana. I chose Rainbow Chefs after initial conversations with more than 20 caterers because I was convinced that she was really listening to me. Chef Nicholas created a masterpiece of a dinner that was enjoyed by everybody. It was the highlight of a long day.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
