They catered the appetizers and dinner and provided servers, tables and linens. The food was delicious and competitively priced. Evan was very responsive and made planning quick and easy.

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!

Jennine's staff were excellent and very professional. We had a wedding for around 100 people and they seamlessly helped us set up the buffet, kept our tables clean and cleared, and doled out champagne for toasts. Would highly recommend for any event you have in mind!

Working with Made for Love Catering was a great experience. Debbie is very flexible and responsive. We were hosting a memorial service for our mom in our childhood home and originally started out with an estimate of 50-75 guests. As we got closer to the date the guest list swelled to over 130 guests. Debbie wasn't fazed and was very willing to do whatever we needed to make our celebration a success. We had requested an assortment of appetizers to be served on a buffet table and had also requested additional servers to help pour wine and beer. When I began to realize that due to the large crowd in a small space that people had difficulty getting to the food table I picked up some trays and began to pass out the appetizers. Debbie noticed this right away and quickly alerted her server to come get the trays and do the passing. I really appreciated that. We had also requested to have a favorite cheese added to the cheese platter. It was not something she was familiar with but she researched where to find it and made sure we had it on our tray. I appreciate this type of can-do attitude and wouldn't hesitate to work with Debbie again in the future. Her food was delicious and fresh.

I hosted a 50th birthday dinner at our home last night form my wife and 12 of her close girl friends. Senorita Gourmet Andrea Gray catered a Mexican themed dinner for us and did an outstanding job. The ladies absolutely loved it and my wife could not have been more pleased with her birthday dinner. Thank you Andrea. We interviewed three other private chefs for our dinner before deciding to go with Andrea. She was the most professional, the most responsive, and by far the most creative. Of course we wanted great food (Andrea can deliver that), but we were also looking for something unique and creative, without being stiff and formal. Enter Andrea, with her Mexican themed dinner complete with her own plates, glasses and table decorations. Fun, Festive, and Uniquely Fresh! As for the food and drink. Key highlights were the Raspberry Mojitos, Avocado Soup, Quiche de Calebazita, and Mexican Corn Cake. I highly recommend the Una Senorita Gourmet.

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.

Fabulous experience! Chef Graham was incredible from first contact. This was our first big party at our home (60 people for a backyard buffet-style bbq) needless to say I was a little nervous but Graham eased my nerves with our first conversation. The menu he put together was outstanding! He communicated clearly and frequently during the planning process. The event went so smoothly. Graham and Eric were delightful and so kind. They took care of everything so that my husband and I were able to enjoy the evening without a worry. And now to the food...It was ridiculously delicious! The gourmet mac and cheese was a huge crowd pleaser. He also made skirt steak with chimichuri and pulled pork sliders with spicy tomato jam, roasted potatoes, quinoa with fresh veggies, and delicious salads. The presentation was a beautiful showcase of the food. It was gorgeous, pleasing to the eye and palate. He did a fantastic job with portions, it was the perfect amount of food. It was a pleasure having Graham in our home. The entire experience was beyond my expectations and I can't wait for our next feast! Several of our friends requested his business cards and are looking forward to planning their own dinner parties. Highest recommendation and compliments to the Chef! Thank you!

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!)

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!

Rose Johnson & her entire crew were fantastic! We hired her for a 50th wedding anniversary party that we were hosting in our backyard for about 50x guests. She's great with communication - she was quick to get us a quote, a sample menu, and walk us through what she would need/suggest for the day of the event. She was very flexible, and easily accommodated my mother-in-law's low sodium diet requirement. Most importantly though, her food was wonderful! Her appetizers were plentiful, and the main course & sides were delicious. I was worried about having dried out food (as we were doing a buffet), but the food was cooked perfectly. She kept me on budget, and really, she went above & beyond what I expected from a caterer! Her staff were friendly with the guests, they helped pour drinks, set up chairs, and left my kitchen clean at the end of the night!! I would recommend her to others in a heartbeat!

Excellent experience; Annicette put together an appropriate menu quickly and with no fuss, was easy to communicate with, and executed efficiently. We were late getting back to the house but she let herself in and got started on the prep work and was able to adjust the timing of the meal. All the food was delicious and Annicette was a delight to be with. Highly recommended.

Chef Eileen was the greatest! This was a first time experience for us, hiring a personal chef for a small group of 8. It was a bachelorette party and the best touch to start an otherwise amazing weekend. Chef Eileen was professional, extremely sweet and most of all our 4 course dinner was delicious! The entire group was happy!! We will certainly do business again in the future and I believe she even gained new clients from our experience. Thank you Chef Eileen!!! All the best, Jenett

Honestly some of the best vegan food I've ever had. It really surprised me that I felt satiated after not eating meat, something I'm not used to. Plus the combination of flavors and textures was far beyond anything I've had in plant-based cooking. Really happy we hired Nikolitsa to cook for our dinner party, you could tell there is real passion and joy in what she does. We highly recommend her!

The first time I used Alta Cuisine was in 2003 for my wedding. My guests, about 120, were blown away by the food. We did an international buffet and it was amazing. Since then my family and I have used Alta Cuisine to cater many other events from office Xmas parties to big birthday parties, baby showers and small functions like my sisters' bridal shower for 10 people. Every time Alta caters an event people go crazy over the food. What they don't know is how easy it is to work with Alta and her staff. Alta always lets me make small changes to her menu ideas (though I never make too many!). She remembers to ask me about details I forget to think of, like table clothes and plates. Her staff are always friendly and professional. I can not recommend Alta Cuisine enough!

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
