We were looking for catering services for our small and intimate wedding during December 2015. Food was a big part of the event, but we also had a limited budget, so we shopped around to find someone that would fit our needs. Pete understood our menu concept right away and was able to work with our budget. He didn't fuzz about small details that we wanted to incorporate and went above and beyond to make them happen. He even provided ideas on how to improve the overall experience, not just the food. We interviewed lots of chefs and catering companies and we couldn't be happier about working with Pete. Our foodie friends and family members praised the food, the presentation was extraordinary and the service was very professional. Pete also provided support for the drinks, bringing with him a great mixologist that crafted creative drinks for the crowd. Finally, the next morning Pete prepared brunch for guests that spent the night at the venue (and ourselves) and even tho some things did not go as planned for him (the professional oven broke down!), he was able to have everything ready flawlessly by the time we woke up. Thank you Pete for taking care of such important part of our event! We are looking forward to working with you again.

Chef Rocco's appetizers and desserts were absolutely delicious. My guests particularly loved the homemade pizzas with fresh toppings, and the luscious strawberry cake. Thanks so much, Chef Rocco!

Chef Sat was everything we had expected and more! He was very responsive from the moment we were connected through Thumbtack! We had a group of nine girlfriends with a couple different dietary requests that he was more than happy to accommodate! Initially I was a little skeptical booking a chef through a website, so I asked him if I could call and chat with him! He was more than willing to do so and I didn't have any reservations after our conversation! We had him come into the home while we were wine tasting to start preparing our meal...appetizers were ready when we arrived back home! Delicious too! Our salads and main courses were amazing and our kitchen was SPOTLESS! Definitely cleaner than when he arrived! We felt that having a chef come in was a wonderful touch to our trip and Sat was genuine and professional! He comes with my highest recommendation!

A Plus Catering did a fantastic job for my New Year's Eve/50th birthday party. Jennine sourced all the rentals and the DJ. Everything was delivered and picked up as requested. Full cost including rentals, DJ, bartender and two servers was kept within my budget. With Jennine providing everything needed I was able to relax in Hawaii, returning home late on the 30th. Everyone arrived timely, we had delicious appetizers and music playing before the guests arrived. Hot appetizers, drinks and a champagne toast at midnight! Thank you for making this happen Jennine ❤️

As a event coordinator I have worked with Steve and the folks at DNL Catering on many special occasions. We have worked together on wedding and baby showers, brunches, wedding receptions, work Christmas parties and anniversary parties. They always provide a menu to your request and the playing of the food is always on beautiful plates and dishes, not aluminum trays. There are always compliments on the foods from the guests. We are always a happy with the selections. Their website makes it easy to browse their menu and I always receive a reply promptly when I submit an event request online. DNL Catering is on my preferred vendor list when I meet with future clients. I have used them in my own home numerous times. They are my 'go to' caterers for any event.

We planned a brunch buffet for 20-30 people to celebrate my daughter's college graduation. Thumbtack and ezcater had some suggestions, but Quiche and Carry jumped out as a perfect option -- local fresh ingredients, tasty quiche and salad options etc. Deborah responded to my quote request quickly, and came up with a menu that fed the most people for my budget. Food delivery came on time. The quiches and the zucchini bread especially were a huge hit (try the corn quiche, it is divine!). I'd use QuichandCarry again for catering without hesitation.

I have been to several catering events that Chet Chase has orchestrated, from a small private luncheon to a large holiday party. The raves from guests were numerous and the "ooohhss" and "aaahhhaas" were heard about the appetizers, drinks and entrees. He is so creative and can work within any budget. The plus side too, he is a "dream" to work with and his team is so professional. I would hire him in a heartbeat!

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!)

We hired Grace to cater our event for 60 people. She was very professional and easy to work with. During the process she was always available and responded quickly. Her cuisine was delicious and she was very pleasant to work with. We'd love to work with her again, if the opportunity arises. Thank you Grace!

Dawn and Marty were simply amazing. Marty is the chef and is more passionate about food then any chef I've ever met. He went beyond the extra mile to prepare amazing food for our wedding. The quality of the food and the the caliber of service provided by Dawn was outstanding. We live over 300 miles away from where the wedding was held so we had to hire our caterer remotely. We were worried about that at first, but Dawn put us completely at ease. She arranged for a site visit and then a private tasting at their facility. That was AMAZING! Appetizers, main courses, desert AND wine. What a great preview. Dawn helped us coordinate our order with the rental company and gave lots of helpful tips. Marty accommodated a special request my bride wanted which was to replace the traditional wedding cake with a tiered 60 cup Creme Brûlée desert tower! Wow... incredible. I heard several guest snuck two helpings :) Dawn and Marty were not just Caterers, they became family to us as they helped make the day a huge success! We would absolutely recommend their service to others and will use them again!

Catered our New Years party for 16. Appetizers and food were excellent. Specializes in veggie, but did a meat course for us. All ingredients fresh, organic and gluten free. The gnocchi was to die for!

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!

Oh my goodness, I was so, so impressed with Cheri's cooking. I've never, and I mean never, tasted a turkey that was as tender and flavorful as hers. I'm getting hungry right now just thinking of it. She catered our holiday party, and the depth and delight of all her amazing dishes tantalized all the guests. All her dishes we're cooked and baked to perfection. She's a genius in the kitechen, with a down-home, nurturing spirit to boot. I highly recommend Cheri for any catering event you're planning in the future. Your guest will rave that it's the best catered food they've ever had.

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!

Tonya was very warm from our first contact. She definitely listened to what I needed and quickly put together some ideas. She is very flexible and never lets on that you are taking up her (very precious and little) free time. The evening of the event: I finally met Tonya and Israel. They went right to work with very little direction from me (their staff had to do final set up of the tables). My guests raved about the presentation and quality of the hors d’ouevres. Dinner was beautiful, delicious, and service was lovely. Just to top it off, no other caterer/chef service we have used has left our kitchen and home in such great shape. I can’t wait to book the team again.
