Epic BBQ Wedding Reception The full menu and catering service of Just Hors D'Oeuvres goes way beyond the appetizers. With their vast selection of appetizers, entrees and desserts, its hard to imagine a combination which cannot more than please the most demanding of guests. Their grilled lamb, skirt steak and beef tenderloin exceeded high quality expectations and only unsolicited complements were received from many of the guests. The entire staff worked tirelessly for eight hours serving have passed Hors douerves, creating inventive mixed drinks, grilling and organizing the delicious buffet and desserts. The caterers are focused and busy with many events both large and small so just keep this in mind when trying to determine menu selection and coordinating with the various other vendors working your event

Couldn't have asked for better help at a small dinner party last night. He jumped in to take over the prep work when I was scrambling to finish getting ready for our guests, was a pro behind the bar, set up a great buffet dinner, added little extra touches to jazz up dessert, and then left a clean kitchen behind. Highly recommend Rich and plan to use him again in the future!

Chef Michel worked with us to design a "Latin Flair" menu that incorporated traditional selections with unique flavors and pairings. The steak fajitas were delicious, and a favorite for the crowd. We also thoroughly enjoyed the cake, customized with our Company colors/theme. Festive Food Caterers provided the full set-up (buffet servers, warmers, serving utensils, even disposable dinnerware for the diners) and was present to explain what was in a particular dish or replenish servers when empty. From planning all the way to teardown, Chef Michel made our corporate holiday party a delight to plan.

Cameron and his wife, Christine, are the best! From the very first meeting with them we knew they'd be the perfect match for my son's outdoor wedding. They are very personable, professional and they know what they're doing! The food was delicious and the service was great! At such a stressful time of trying to make this the wedding of my son and daughter-in-law's dreams, it was such a RELIEF to be able to COUNT ON Christine and Cameron to take care of the wedding dinner and THAT THEY DID! I didn't have to ask or tell them to do anything - from arrival to set up to serving to break down, they were RIGHT ON TASK! They brought a very nice young lady who helped set up and clean up and another helping hand to help set up and serve. Between the four of them, everything was just perfect! I really can't thank them enough except to say to all who read this review - HIRE THEM!! You won't regret it!!! Thanks from the bottom of my heart, Christine and Cameron!! Lynn

Kathy's group catered a buffet dinner for my mother-in-law's 80th birthday. She was very responsive & cooperative with our plan. Her assistants were top notch! Everyone enjoyed the food; chix parm was excellent. Kathy worked within our budget and delivered excellent value. Her assistant took over as our DJ at the last minute and was great. Would recommend her services. Thank you.

Susan was fantastic from the start! She provided a great menu and a quote within my budget. I am a meeting planner and I work with caterers twice a year, all over the US. Few have offered to stay on site during meal service and that was a very special perk that Seaflour offers. I love the personal touch, and the attention to detail. I would work with her again anytime and wish I could clone her for other meeting locations!

What a great job by Joe and his catering team at Angelo's Market & catering. The food was out of this world and the presentation was as if I was on a Iron Chef episode. It could not have gone any better and I definitely am going to be using Joe again. Thanks again. Robert S.

My name is Ms. Lola Nathan, a recently retired Public School Administrator. It gives me great pleasure to write this review for Gwen Robinson. I've known Gwen for over 30 years and our best times have been spent singing and cooking. She specializes in vegetarian, vegan, cooked, and raw foods. We have spent many hours preparing dishes like vegan potato salad, whole wheat dinner rolls, vegetarian meat loaf, roasted veggies, vegan eggplant parmigiana, raw seasoned kale, baked sweet potatoes, vegan burgers, all types of potatoes, every kind of vegetable, fruit, cake, apple crisp and so much more. Our latest collaboration was vegan lentil loaf in which we added organic shredded carrots, organic chopped celery, organic chopped onions, ground flax seed, nutritional yeast, liquid smoke and some seasonings to our organic lentils. It was so delicious that the guests I invited for dinner wanted to take slices of the lentil loaf home for the next day. Juicing is an integral part of our health practices. One of our most healthful combinations is kale, spinach, celery, carrots, and a touch of ginger, all organic! We know it's best to juice our vegetables and eat our fruit. Juiced veggies go straight to our cells giving strength and vitality to our whole body. Fruit we eat raw because this way cleanse our digestive system. Gwen prepares excellent fruit platters! Gwen is busy but she makes time for people like me who care about their health and want great tasting food. It doesn't take us long to do anything. I get all the ingredients, she does the preparing with me. Sometimes I just have her prepare meals for me for special occasions! She gets rave reviews, is easy to work with and is patient with all whom she is instructing. Gwen has taught many of my associates and friends how to make different tasty entrées and treats. She has no problem sharing recipes and keeps some with her. Young and old alike love whatever she prepares. She makes her own dough, from scratch, for fried dough & pizzas! Wonderful!! She is one of the best vegetarian Chef's I know. Always rave reviews! Always!! We know her as Ms. G, the personal vegan chef. Truly, Ms. Lola Nathan

Jane's catering service was absolutely perfect. She showed up early for the party our family had, worked diligently throughout to upkeep platters, refill drinks, clean up empty items, and inform guests as to where they could find items (e.g. napkins, plastic ware, etc.). Most importantly, the logistics above would have traditionally been handled by a family member, which would strip them from being able to truly relax and enjoy the time with the other family members there. She handled this while everyone was able to partake and enjoy the party. The cost was reasonable and within our budget. Overall, she was great and when our family decides to do another party, she will be getting a call from us. Thank you Jane, very much!

Anepexperience catered my daughters’ graduation luau and made it a truly exquisite experience. The Hawaiian themed foods and appetizers were phenomenal. The presentation was so aesthetically pleasing that our guests were in awe. Chef Oneil and staff were very professional, knowledgeable, curteous and an absolute pleasure to deal with. I look forward to working with Anepexperience on every event I host in the future. They did such an amazing job. I couldn't have hired a better company. My girls are still thankful for how well the event turned out. I couldn't have done it without the help of Anexperience. Highly recommended.
