I am extremely satisfied with the catering service Mike had provided for my intimate, private backyard wedding. :) His uniformed staff were very professional & polite. I continued to receive many compliments from my guests regarding the the quality of the food as well and the service Mike's staff provided. They did not forget to ask us how we were doing and if we needed more water or anything else at our sweet heart table, and I appreciated that the most. :) They made sure that the kids had kid-enjoyable foods on their served plates. Their bar tender was a very good host at serving and accommodating the requests for drinks from my many guests. There was even a complimentary self-serve drink bar for coffee, iced tea, and lemonade for the non-alcohol drinkers. From our first taste-testing to the finale at the wedding, Mike always remained courteous and followed my seating arrangements and catering requests. Salad, entree, and dessert were all served in a timely fashion to all my guests and my husband and I. Thank you for being so patient and flexible with me Mike. Everything was delicious! I will continue to highly recommend you to all my friends and family. :)

Jose at Mr Worldwide Catering, did the catering for an 80th birthday party for us on March 28 2015, we did tacos, rice, beans, he also did fruit, cheese, and veggie platters for us. The food was all excellent, the service was awesome, was there when he stated he would be, did all the set up and clean up of food. Really enjoyed the professional way things were done. Everyone at the party raved about the food, and how nice everything was set up. He even had flowers for his food table to really made it look great. I hope I have the chance to use him again, for other things this is one TOP NOTCH CATERING SERVICE.

What a fabulous evening. Lilian was such a professional and the food was absolutely delicious and so well prepared and presented. We had a full meal service: cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, salad, entree and a cheese flight. Amazing. Lilian was so patient and went above and beyond what we had expected with regard to service, clean up and overall experience.

I have nothing but great things to say about the service, quality, and overall delivery of Best Mobile Chef. From beginning to end, Shawna was very attentive and professional. As a bride, I can honestly say that planning a wedding is one of the most stressful experiences in your life; however, Shawna did an amazing job at making sure I was not stressed or worried when it came to the catering, bartending, and cake. She made sure that each and every need was met, and she even offered her assistance with cutting our cake even though that was out of her services. We sat down and went over every detail, and Shawna made sure to keep in touch throughout the way to maintain things and to make sure that we were on track with everything. Finally on the day of, the food and setup was more than what was expected. Our family and friends spoke so highly of the food and service. Shawna and her team was absolutely phenomenal! My husband and I would definitely book Shawna and her team again for a large dinner, and even desserts. We are both forever thankful and grateful!

Lavonne catered my 40th birthday bash. She made the evening so much more enjoyable. I didn’t have to worry about looking after the food or cleaning up. I could just enjoy my time with family and friends. And the food assortment was delicious. I’d certainly recommend her to anyone wanting a friendly, fun, quality catering service.

I am beyond grateful to Thumbtack for connecting me to Chef Keith Prante and his team at Hautè Productions Events and Catering to cater my mom's 80th birthday celebration. They are absolutely A-MAZING! Chef Prante was one of two chefs who responded to my request via Thumbtack, and I also received a personal referral. Neither of the other caterers offered ANYWHERE NEAR the quality, selections, variety and value that Hautè offered at my price point. We had our tasting today, and it absolutely sealed the deal! Everything was delicious and the presentation was outstanding. I highly recommend Hautè Productions to any potential customer who appreciates excellence, accommodation and genuine customer service.

On Sunday November 29th 2015 I had the distinct fortune to have Chef Leslie Merle cater a special event for my food and wine organization. Leslie and her staff hit a Home run!! The food and service were outstanding and I can't wait for another opportunity to work with her again. So if you need to use a caterer that you can trust I would highly recommend Chef Leslie.

Christine McMaster is a hidden gem of the culinary and catering world! She was the caterer last year for a wedding I attended and I was most impressed. She completely handled an amazing dinner for 21 people with delectable Indian and Middle Eastern Food; taking care of the shopping, the food preparation, the service and cleaning up of the food and leftovers. I was so impressed that I asked her to cater an Indian Meal for 75 people! Since it was a much larger undertaking, we provided theingredients, but Chris oversaw every aspect of the preparation of a 5 course meal, and remained calm, organized and personable throughout. The food was absolutely delicious. I would absolutely recommend her for any catering needs you might have - you would be lucky to get her!

Our family always enjoys good food over the holidays. This time around we decided to go with a local caterer, BAPS!, so we could relax and enjoy. They did not disappoint! The turkey breast was hot and juicy- the gravy was very good- not too thick, not too thin. Moist stuffing- mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes- had to have seconds on those! The vegetable medley was a nice change over the usual one or two separate vegetables. We are looking forward to trying out other foods BAPS! has to offer for future occasions!

I hired Diane to cook a multi-course meal in the comfort of our home in order to surprise my husband for Valentines Day. We agreed upon a menu, a time, a price and we were good to go. On the day of we corresponded a bit and she offered some of her personal items to help decorate for the special night which was above and beyond. I didn't need them but I did appreciate the offer. Diane is friendly, responsive and the food she made was DIVINE! Part of our meal included cream corn and French onion soup, both my husbands favorites. He loved both items. We were so full, we couldn't even eat the dessert we had planned for the evening. My husband said one more bite and he would have exploded. Diane was efficient in the kitchen, we were able to see the flambé for the steak from the dining room where we were enjoying our salad. She served the meal and cleaned up as each course went along. It was a new experience for both of us and it ended up being a very special evening.

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 had our annual conference and needed someone that had some flexibility on the amount of guests attending. O'Side BBQ Man was not just accommodating but provided amazing service. He arrived early to make sure he was ready to serve on time and also the food was amazing. Everyone wished they could have had seconds, maybe even thirds. We will definitely be booking O'Side BBQ Man for any future company events.
