I have had extensive experience working with Pete, most recently when my wife and I hosted a sit-down dinner party for 12 at our house. Pete worked with us to create a really impressive dinner that showcased his creativity and technique. Completely delicious from top to bottom. Our guests (and my wife and I) were both impressed and extremely happy. For such a result, the cost was very, very reasonable. We will use Pete again!
Chef Rocco did a fantastic job catering our party. The food and service was fabulous. We will use Chef Rocco again for our next party!
We were very late, needing catering for a party of 60 people 10 days later. They were very professional and helpful. The food and service was great, the guests were very happy.
Food was great (especially the bacon-wrapped apricots - YUM!). Drop-off was on time and pick-up was hassle free! Would absolutely call them again for my next party catering needs!
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 had a buffet dinner party for 27 family and friends. Deborah provided the food -- it was wonderful! We had appetizers including 3 different kinds of mini-quiche and absolutely decadent deviled eggs with bacon and then entrees of flank steak (all gone!) and lemon chicken (so tender!), roasted vegetables, a farmers salad and garlic bread. Beautiful, healthy and delicious. The staff was very good and left my kitchen as they found it. A great experience from a very good caterer. Thanks, Deborah!
Chet prepared an awesome menu for our 50 person cocktail party. After a quick phone call, Chet took the theme of the party and crafted a menu that really fit what we were looking for. There were hardly any leftovers, so the portions were perfect. Chet is really responsive and highly communicative, making him really easy to work with. The only snag was that he ran into some day of oven issues (which can't be predicted), but was able to get us the food in the nick of time. I would definitely recommend Chet to anyone looking for an awesome caterer who is easy to work with, and prepares delicious food! Thanks for making our party a success!
Grace recently prepared dinner for my five friends and I, which was hosted at my friend’s apartment in SF for her birthday. Each and every course was beautifully prepared and absolutely delicious, from the eggplant appetizer to the pork shoulder entree, and she even prepared a chocolate and peanut butter cake on special request! She was incredibly professional and so very sweet. I look forward to planning another dinner party in the near future!
From the point of connecting with Daniella about my dinner party, to meeting with her in person beforehand to discuss menu and pricing, and on to the event itself, there was never a time I didn't feel confident in her experience and her ability to pull off a fantastic Greek dinner for my friend's 60th birthday. And that she did! My friends are still raving about her and I could not have been more pleased with every single detail. Food was fabulous! I highly recommend Daniella for any catering needs or for cooking for a private party. She handles it all. Wish I could have her cook for me on a regular basis!
The entire experience from start to finish was outstanding. From the menu choices, to the help Dawn and Marty gave me in planning for the party, to Marty and Kenny's presence at the party to, of course, the food! Our guests were wowed by the delicious food and we were so thrilled at how easy it all was. Highly recommend!
She is so Lovely & her food is Fabulous!! Every one at my dinner party was blown away & we will use her again absolutely!!
We had a small dinner party (10 people) at our home and hired Rainbow Chefs to make the appetizer, dinner and dessert. It was amazing! We'll definitely recommend to all our friends and can't wait for our next event. Highly recommended!
Lucas created and executed a beautifully, delicious menu for my mother's 75th birthday party. It was a dinner party of 20, and he accommodated all "special" requests. Pleasing 20 people at once is no easy feat, but Lucas, and his server Doug, worked flawlessly together to make every one feel special and important. The food was amazing- meyer lemon cream shrimp fettucine-Yum - chateaubriand steak- delicious and cooked to perfection, shrimp canapes, decadent mac and cheese- he pulled it off to perfection. We could not have asked for anything more - it was beyond our expectations for this very special evening. Lucas is a great find!
I've had the opportunity to work with Miss Harper as her photographer on many occasions. Whether we are providing services for a small private house party with 20 guests, with a culturally enriched theme, to providing services for a 100th year life celebration, we have always gone above and beyond to provide the best service possible for our clients. Through observing her process of developing a experience, planning all the details with the client for a wedding, to the detail with a client for a birthday party with more then 100 guests. Her attention to detail and follow though with the requests of clients has provided her opportunity to provide services to several clients in the corporate arena in the finance and technology sectors. Most don't know what goes into the planning and preparation to deliver and execute a catered experience. Our clients trust us to provide what they have requested, based on what's ordered. When it comes to designing and delivering productions which are memorable and leave pleasant memories, the details matter. Our clients expect us to think through everything and have a backup plan for those unexpected situations which may crop up. To all those who are considering contracting with her. I encourage you to look at some of the photos which have been captured and represent the quality of work she executes. Contact her and let her know your desires in a clear communicative way and you'll be glad you made the choice to keep it Phiesty, with Chef Cheri Harper.
I hired Basic Catering for a dinner party. We had salmon and chicken breasts with asparagus and a variety of salads. The food was amazing and the presentation was beautiful. Will definitely order from them again.
My husband and had ITM do our nieces baby shower! It was adorable. Kristine suggested a tea party theme and it was perfect. Thank you for a precious memory for our sweet niece.
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!
We hired Mark to cater brunch for our wedding, and we were very impressed! He replies in a timely manner to questions, requests, and concerns. From the moment he reached out in response to my project on Thumbtack, Mark worked hard to accommodate our needs. He made sure that we felt good about the menu before we booked him, and had us over for a tasting. Additionally, he noticed an item we didn't originally include on the menu and graciously added it to the meal (potatoes!). Many of our guests made comments to us about how much they enjoyed the food, and everyone (about 130 people) had as much to eat as they wanted with food left over. My only regret was that as the bride I didn't have the chance to eat as much of that AMAZING French toast as I wanted!
Olive Cater team catered my birthday party in February and it was absolutely delicious. The buffet looked beautiful and had a wide variety of dishes with many vegetarian options. The shawarma was out of this world! Even though we eat a lot, we had leftover for the next day. It was fun to see the team cook and prepare the food at my house and they left the kitchen cleaner than it was before. I highly recommend Arkadi and Elinor service.
They are professional cater. Nice and kind to dealing with. I would recommend to anyone who plan to have an event, party, and for any occasion. They provide the reasonable price compare to others.
It what can only be described as a limited and challenging environment, Rainbow Chefs provided a gourmet dinner for my executives that was truly exquisite. Everything about the process was handled well with great communication from Lana. I chose Rainbow Chefs after initial conversations with more than 20 caterers because I was convinced that she was really listening to me. Chef Nicholas created a masterpiece of a dinner that was enjoyed by everybody. It was the highlight of a long day.
