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.

I am an event planner and have worked with many catering companies in the past few years. Kitchenina is by far my best find and the catering company that I will continue to recommend to any of my future clients. Aliki is extremely kind and very accommodating. The food is top quality and their customer service is unmatched. So glad to have found this company on thumbtack! Looking forward to working with them on many future events!

My experience with Deborah for a professional business meeting was top notch. Prompt, plenty of food, catered to a picky audience (gluten free one person, another no tomatoes, another no cheese, bla bla bla). Everyone was impressed with the food, and the service. Many thanks. And it kept on giving, that night my 14 yr old freshman reminded me that it was his turn in Adviser session to bring snacks, so Wallah! - Bunt Cake to the rescue. It also turned out that another Advisor was not there and instead of the normal 8 - 10 kids they had two groups and only ONE treat. Again Bunt Cake to the rescue - he and 18 kids demolished that cake at school today and it was PERFECT! The salmon was divine - from the local fish market, and the desert, fresh peach and strawberry cobbler with homeade whip cream we are still eating.... Can't write a better story. I gave the Donuts to the staff and right now am eating cheeses and Kelly left for an evening meeting and discovered the left over pasta, so she's off with it, and we all had the rest of the salmon for dinner last night (except what's in the fridge). Masterful job! All ended well. thanks again from us all John

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.

An associate recommended Rainbow Chefs to provide the food for an event I was planning for a family gathering. I decided to go through with their services. There were kids and adults participating so I was a little nervous about how it would go, but everyone had a great time! It was so fun and interactive for the kids. The food was delicious! Would definitely recommend Rainbow Chefs!

I normally do not write reviews but after meeting Chef Cheri at several events I attended recently, I was moved to submit this review because Chef Cheri and her catering company , Phiesty Foods, has been exceptional! She was very professional, approachable, and you can tell that she loves what she does. At each event, the food was Fantastic, hors'douvers were creatively and deliciously paired with the wine and cocktails, and her eye for details for plating each dish/tray and with meeting all the guests needs, was evident to me that she is truly a master of her craft. I would 100% hire or recommend you for any event in need of catering! Continued success, Chef Cheri!!!

good menu got to speak to the chef himself on several occasions, and he answered all my questions, a full service operation (can do plates and linens, etc) and nice menu selection with local organic food as a value of the caterer.

I went to an event catered by Arkadi and Elinor back in January. I loved the richness of flavors and colors. The food was as tasty as it looked. The meats were cooked to perfection. I booked them to cater a costumers appreciation event for my construction company and it was a big success! Food was great and the service was professional.
