We had the pleasure of hiring Cameron Daly for our engagement party back on March 21, 2015. From the first email to execution Cameron and his wife Christine were amazing!! They both take such a personal interest in ensuring our party was an event our guest and ourselves never forgot with their amazing culinary items! We chose Cameron due to his willingness to sit down and let us know more about him and his wife Christine and always answered every email or picked up the phone right away with all our questions. We had 50 friends and family at a private home and they executed the food and service like we were in a 5 star restaurant. They came with everything you would need in order to ensure your home was never disturbed and when they did need the kitchen they left it cleaner then it was before they got there. We even utilized the service of their bartender Nigel who happens to also be there son and he was a fan amongst all our guests! We would highly suggest Cameron Daly for any party and will be hoping to use him again down the road for other parties we will have. Please feel free to contact us for references and we will be glad to recommend Cameron!!
We hired Colin for my sisters Bachelorette weekend in Newport to do a cooking class/meal for us at the house we were staying at. Colin was great all around! From the food to the experience everything was fabulous. We wanted to make the experience a bit more interactive then a normal personal chef meal but nothing too intense, he was able to read the group perfectly and did exactly what we wanted. We decided to go with a baked stuffed lobster for our main course, and he was extremely accommodating to anyone with dietary restrictions. We also prepared a butternut squash soup that was delicious, kale/quinoa salad with grilled vegetables and spaghetti squash on the side, finishing it off with crème Brule, everything was amazing for a reasonable price too! I would definitely recommend Colin and would love to use his services again!

We definitely recommmend the services of Dinner by Josef!
Mike cooked a beautiful and delicious meal for our bachelorette party. He was prompt, brought all his own equipment and ingredients, and cleaned everything immaculately. Mike was a fun addition to our celebration and was courteous yet charismatic. The meal was to die for, and Mike prepared a large menu while accommodating dietary restrictions. I feel confident that every guest at the party would hire Mike again. Of all the events that day, the chef was the best! Thanks, Mike!!
Highly recommend!!! The food was incredible, the chef charming and so talented, the wait staff attentive to all needs! A huge thank you to Mark Vecchittoo and his crew. Presentation and service is 5 star.
We couldn't have asked for a better party--the bride to be was overwhelmed with the food and effort that Kim, our chef, provided. From start to finish Kim offered excellent menu suggestions, and planned to whole party for us. The appetizers, entree and desserts were par excellence!! The food presentation was beautiful. She even typed up the menu, which we placed at each setting. The appetizers were placed on platters with fresh flowers that matched the color of the bridal party. Our party of 24 had more than enough food, with each bite better the the last. We started off with a shrimp on a homemade wonton with green goddess dressing, Homemade hummus and guac with chips/crackers, then some meatball sliders ( the bride's fav!) and a beautiful crudite. The main course offered both chicken and steak Indonesian style with delicious sides. Kim even made a delicious carrot cake sundae for the bride to be, knowing that carrot cake was her favorite. The whole even was perfect and elegant from start to finish....we couldn't have asked for anything more. Chef Kim is wonderful!!! Thanks Kim for a fantastic night!!!
Each of the meals (one dinner and a few breakfasts) I've eaten at the SolarCart Cafe has been excellent, making me an appreciative repeat customer. The food is only one of the reasons for my return. Both Justin and Matt are extremely personable in addition to being wonderful cooks. The cart, build with with their own hands, is a model of ingenuity and efficiency. It even has a green roof!
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.
Nina is a very fine server. She arrived on time, was cordial to both my clients and to me. She anticipated things without me having to ask and she followed through. Both my clients and I are very pleased the way the dinner went. Thank you, Chef Colin Shea.
Karla took care of us in planning our menu within our budget for a large birthday party that we were planning. Both Jamie and Karla were present the day of and prepared some of the most delicious food I think I've ever had in my life. Jamie is also wildly knowledgable and willing to share a wealth of culinary information with you if you just ask. Had a great time and can't wait to hire them back again.
