Working with Pete was fantastic! He create a custom menu for my baby shower party, and everyone was absolutely impressed. The food was delicious and presented well, his staff was courteous, and I heard only rave reviews from my friends and family. I wanted everything taken care of for the event, with minimal impact to the hostesses home, so all guest could enjoy themselves, and Pete made it happen! I highly recommend him and will definitely work with Pete again. Thank you Pete!

Jeninne at A Plus Catering was professional and courteous and quickly secured Daylaysha for my event who showed up on time despite the rainy conditions. Daylaysha was very friendly and helpful. I wish she had been a little more experienced in the kitchen, but she made up for that in her willingness to do anything I asked of her. She was very polite to my guests, and left my kitchen very organized and tidy. I was pleased that I didn't have a kitchen full of dirty dishes to face after my last guest left.

I have hired many caterers over the years for various events. I was looking for an experienced caterer for our son's wedding rehearsal BBQ for 130 people at our house in June. I meant Paul Lira through Thumbtack and he promptly returned my call. We set up a tasting date and the food was so delicious I hired him on the spot. His menu is locally sourced, fresh and all of it tasty for every palate. Paul and his staff were a pleasure to work with....professional and friendly. Wedding RSVP's can be slow in coming in and the few updates I sent Paul within my timeline were graciously accepted. I would highly recommend Nitro to anyone looking for delicious food prepared to the highest of standards and delivered with professionalism, on time by a great guy who loves what he does and brings a cool vibe with him!

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 am thrilled to share my recent catering experience with Deborah and Quiche & Carry. Deborah catered a bridal shower for us...made a scrumptious poached salmon, salads, and a very fresh fruit cobbler. Rave reviews from all, with no leftovers....that says it all! We can't wait for our next occasion to have Quiche & Carry cater!!

Had a Christmas Party for 30 people in my home. Food was prepared on-site. As guests arrived first and caterers second, the kitchen was full of guests nibbling on appetizers. Alisa and her assistant blended right in working around guests. The food was delicious! All guests commented about how wonderful the food was and how pleasant Alisa and her assistant were. Clean-up was provided, and they did a great job at that too. It made enjoying guests and myself fantastic! Planning for the event was seamless, organized and expeditious! When I have another party for my 50th this year, Passionate Plates and Alisa will be on "speed-dial"!

Hi had the pleasure of selecting Chet to prepare a menu and work my Friendsgiving event which was my first time starting a tradition with my friends. From Chet's initial response to my quote request through the end of my event, the services provided were first class! Chet worked with me on my menu and I felt that he truly listened and took my vision into consideration when delivering my sample menu. I was extremely nervous since in the past, I would always be the one to prepare meals for my guest however, this year I wanted to do something different allowing me the opportunity to spend time with my guest instead of slaving in the kitchen. Chet checked in with me a few days prior to my event to confirm final details and then it was show time. He showed up on time as expected with everything needed along with a helper and the magic began. I am very satisfied with the outcome. From the taste and flavors of the food, the presentation, the hospitality Chet and his crew showed my guest, the clean up, to Chet's willingness to do more than expected (setting up tableware and more). A+ to Chet. He will certainly be my go to for future events in need of catering. Well done!

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.

Nick catered a housewarming party for me. He was very responsive when I reached out to him and was very helpful in offering suggestions for food that would work best for the environment. We ended up with a buffet of casual finger foods. Lumpia, crab cakes, BBQ pulled pork sliders, meatballs and MORE. Nick delivered the food to my house in time for the party and everything was delicious. I heard a lot of praise from my guests. I had some food left over that my husband and I ate for a few days after the party, and we loved every bite! We were actually sorry when we finally ran out! I highly recommend Nick and Famous Creations for catering.

We contracted with John DeMartini to cater a team lunch at high school for 27 people. He was extremely easy to work with. He knew what we were looking for and several delicious options to choose. He delivered the food promptly, set it up quickly with disposable chaffing dishes which kept the food warm. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend John DeMartini catering for any event and look forward to working with him again in the future.

Angela catered my wedding of about 80 people. Her food was amazing. We got the portobello wellington, malfati, and roasted vegetables. The wellington was wonderful, the malfati good, and the vegetables were okay. The garden salad was amazing, and the best part of the meal. Unfortunately, there were issues with the kitchen and her staff was unable to provide food timely. Three tables waited approximately and hour and fifteen after everyone else had received their food. I was disappointed that I hired 4 servers and they had to pull my bartender to serve food. Which left our event in a situation where the event manager had to oversee the bar. Overall the food is really wonderful, but there were some structural issues.

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!

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.

We recently hired Eileen and her staff with What's Cookin to cater a backyard luau party. From beginning to end, she was very easy to work with. The bottom line is that her food was AMAZING! What a talent!! Our party guests raved about the dishes she prepared. Since the party was themed, we worked together to come up with the perfect selections for a summer luau. Her staff that worked the party with her were super friendly and smiley, professional, and instinctively knew how to "be there" for our guests needs. As the hosts of the party, my husband and I were able to focus entirely on our guests, which is exactly what we were looking for. We were all very impressed with everything, and are certain we found our new favorite caterer! Thanks Eileen and your staff for a job well done!

I hired Olive for my birthday party and they are hands down the best catering experience I've ever had for reasonable prices. The value simply can't be beat! We had the Moroccan salmon, a lamb dish and some side options and they were all delicious. Both Arkadi and Elinor went an ve and beyond to make this experience go smooth. I will certainly be asking for services in the future for both private parties and work related events.
