We used Baja's Tacos for our daughter's 1st birthday party of about 50-75 people. They were amazing and brought everything so we had no set up or clean up! They offered beef, chicken & pork tacos with all the trimmings, drinks as well as paper goods. Even quesadillas for the kids! The food was fresh & AMAZING! Everyone loved it! We were referred to them by three other family members who have also used them. It's a common name in our household for our events we need catered. We will for sure be using them in the future!

I contacted Busy Bee Cook for Me to cater my Dad's 90th birthday party for about 40 people in our senior complex. She came and checked out the venue and made some recommendations for the food and service that were right on the mark for what I was looking for. On the day of the party, she and her crew showed up right on time, and both the food and service were totally amazing. People who were there have been saying that it was the party against which all other parties they ever attend will always be measured. And Dad enjoyed himself immensely. Thanks so much to Lilian and her crew for helping make the party for my Dad such a great success!.

They did a terrific job for my twins' birthday party. A great selection of food that was delicious. All our friends were impressed. They showed up on time, set up, cooked and served our guests, then cleaned up. It made the day super easy on us so we could just relax and enjoy being with our guests.

We had an excellent experience. We used bleu catering for a birthday party of about 20. The price was reasonable for the quality and quantity of food. Very responsive to our requests and worked with our budget. I would use them again for an event.

Fantastic meal, way exceeded expectations and was much more affordable than other private chefs we contacted. Would highly recommend to anyone hosting a dinner!! Originally we looked at making a group dinner reservation to dine out in Palm Springs for a birthday party, having Cucina Migrante come to our vacation rental made for a more relaxing and unforgettable dining experience. Francesco and Adisa are true pros!

We hired Chris after tasting her cooking at our friend's dinner party where she was the chef. She cooked dinner for us off & on during the week when our schedules got to be too much. This was during the early years of parenting and making dinner after being at work just didn't fit in my schedule. We loved having her in our home and her food was always so delicious and nurturing! I loved her help it freed up about 8 hours a week for me to spend time with the kids and or relaxing as a family. Dinner time was so enjoyable since I wasn't the one making it or cleaning up. I think she is a fine chef with a very special touch. We went to a Dinner party last summer where she was the cook...her roasted chicken w/ pasta and pesto was divine! Tracy

By far the best idea and decision for a teen birthday party ever!! He brought them aprons, taught them about different kinds of knives and knife care, workspace and hand cleanliness, how to get the best deal at the grocery stores, how to cut up a chicken, how to filet fish, proper seasonings, taste testing, how to multitask in the kitchen to time things to hit the table at the same time and how to prepare dishes for complete meals. He was patient, thorough and totally entertaining to the teens. They were all so proud of their meal and all talked about how cool this party was. After the food was set on the table, he gave a description of each item being served, then he cleaned up the kitchen and exited while we sat down to dinner. He was absolutely amazing. He'd never done a birthday party because he usually teaches couples and does catering events but I'd highly recommend him.

We used BAPS! catering for our annual Halloween party for about 100 people. The food was AMAZING and a crowd pleaser. The prices were reasonable and Brad was professional and responsive; super helpful. They did drop-off service and set it up with everything we needed and extra supplies and food to replenish as things ran out. Would use them again and highly recommend them.

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 lucked out with Chef Zaida. Our Chef cancelled last minute and as we scrambled we ran across Chef Z. Chef Zaida was able to accommodate our Dinner Party of 10. Her attention to detail goes over and beyond. She served us her modern take on a deviled egg and OH MY, divine. We also had a pork tenderloin with a Dijon sauce I could bathe in. The crème brulee to die for. I am seriously drooling thinking about this dinner. Chef Zaida and her assistant provided incredible service, serving our 3 course meal on time, cleaned up and even took out our trash. We definitely will be hiring Chef Zaida and her team again. One of the best. Highly recommend!!!

Chef Keith was extremely accommodating and the food was outstanding. We had a party of 50 people and everyone raved about the shish-kabobs and red beans and rice. Chef Keith's service made our party a great success. He's definitely going to cater our next event.

Ellena is incredible! She offers amazing food and exceptional service. She clearly loves what she does and is passionate about food and clients, offering creativity and customization. Whether looking to feed yourself or your family healthy meals or looking to host a knock-your-socks-off catered gathering - I work with her regularly for both and there is nothing she doesn't wow me with. The best Cuban sandwiches you have ever tasted for a fun Miami night theme, mashed potatoe bar for a midnight comfort food theme at a fancy holiday party - Ellena is creative, kind, and extremely talented. I would highly recommend her.

Sam catered for my daughters birthday, his service was exceptional and the taco bar was great. We fed everyone and had some left overs for later. So no worries about running out of food for your guests. I'd hire him again due to his service and willingness to work with me on a budget. I definitely recommend his great food and service.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
