I have used the catering services of Juste Hors D'Oeuvres many times for both business and personal events. Obviously, I have never been disappointed. Not only is the food wonderful, the servers are professional as well as well groomed and refined. I recommend this company often and have never gotten negative feedback.

Initially contacted Rich to do the bartending at my 50th birthday party. After discussing my catering plans with Rich, he proposed that he stays in the kitchen and coordinates the food while he brings in additional people to help with the bar and serving the food. I am very happy with Rich in the way he managed the kitchen and the servers. In summary I would say Rich personally did an excellent job and would have no hesitation in recommending him. Rich and his crew cleaned up everything after the party. We only had a minimum amount to do the next day.

Although we ultimately had to go a different route for our holiday party, Nate was outstanding in professionalism, responsiveness, value, flexibility and a joy to work with. We recommend him unequivocally and will reach out to him again should we require catering services in future.

For any couple taking on the overwhelming responsibility of planning a wedding themselves, this company successfully provided exceptional off-premise catering along with those special, personal touches desired to ensure a memorable DIY occasion. Laura from Sunflowers Catering helped us through every step of the way. She and her staff prepared an exquisite dining experience that fulfilled the exact culinary vision we desired. Going above and beyond the duties of a caterer, coordinated with the rental company, saved us money wherever possible. When other's tried to steer us in a more conventional direction, she encouraged us to follow through with every quirky, unorthodox idea we put forth to make our dream wedding become reality. The staff was supportive through what might have been a slightly chaotic, customized catering experience and our guests never stopped smiling. My husband and I were uncompromising foodies with unusual requests, unorganized at every moment...and now very satisfied clients! We promise you will be in good hands with Sunflowers Catering.

Festive Food Caterers (Michael) and his team went above and beyond for our party ! This was a graduation party with lots of adults and tons and tons of teenage kids until late at night! Michael and his staff were overly attentive To every need of every guest! The food was phenomenal ! If you were looking for a caterer to help take the worry off your shoulders this is the caterer you want to speak with everything I needed he did .... I was extremely nervous of not having everything perfect and enough food . Everything was done handmade, beautifully displayed, and everyone was so complementary over every aspect of my party! There was so much food in so much variety we had enough food for 2 days! Please take a moment to speak with Michael if you need any catering services you will relax enjoy your party and be completely impressed with everything he has to offer and everything that Michael and his staff do to make the day incredibly stress-free and enjoyable . He will be our forever go to caterer for any party we have again in the future!

I hardly ever provide reviews but after our experience on Sunday, I felt compelled to provide feedback for the 'White Wolf' and his catering services. We contracted Gordon for a 4th of July weekend clam bake in our private home for 15 guests and it quickly became the centerpiece of the weekend. With regard to preparation and professionalism, Gordon scouted the location on the previous day, arrived early, and even used local seawater and kelp from the backyard to cook the lobsters! Their friendly and attentive service continued through the day. Although we were contracted from noon to 4p, the entire day went from 11a to 7:30p. We never felt rushed and his warm attitude and informative presentation allowed us to enjoy the day and feel tucked in. The very best part, aside from feeling as though we made friends during the day, was the food!! Everything was fresh and absolutely delicious. Local produce and lobsters from main may have been the highlight, but they certainly weren't everything! Gordon cooked the best meal many of us have had in a while - and this is from a tough to impressive group of New Yorkers! While he took off, everyone raved about the day and our experience. Our guests requested his business card and hope he's not booked for our nex celebration. Never hesitate to use Gordon for any meal or to celebrate a special occasion - they exceeded expectations and provided a day we'll remember for a long time!

Overall, it was one of the best catered events I've ever attended and, trust me, there have been many events over the years between graduations, showers, weddings, special birthdays, anniversaries, etc. Right from our first interaction, Cameron made me feel that the success of our event was important to him!! That made all the difference. They were patient with my many questions, professional, honest, personable, and they offered excellent advice. The food, presentation, and service were all superb! I received numerous compliments on the quality of the food, the generous portions and multiple questions regarding the identity of the caterer!! I highly recommend Cameron Culinary Concepts for first rate catering services! I look forward to working with them again. Thank you again, Cameron, and best wishes to both you and your wife.

Anne did an outstanding job of putting together "An Evening in Italia" for my husband's 50th birthday party! Everyone raved about the food and wine pairings. Anne was so pleasant and professional from our first communication to the drop off on the day of the event. She is a pleasure to work with an a very talented chef! I will gladly recommend her to friends and family looking for catering services in the future.

I am so glad I found Vickie through Thumbtack. We hired her for our anniversary party for about 140 people and Vickie and her team were just wonderful. Vickie did our table/chair decorations including a beautiful centerpiece, doorway draping, tableware, fruit and cheese trays and was present throughout the party to make sure ours needs were met. Our venue only allowed an hour and half for decorations and Vickie managed to get a few extra people to help her out with. She even helped me find an affordable bakery for ordering cakes and made me really comfortable through the entire planning process. Throughout the party, she was constantly making sure that the hosts and guests had everything they need. My party would not have been the same without her. Highly recommend her to everyone. She is going to my to go person for future parties.

FANTASTIC! I hired Cultivated Tastes to cater my birthday party for approximately 20 people at my house and both Chef Gerry and Kendall exceeded our expectations in every way! I started planning the event with Cultivated Tastes a few months prior to the event and they were very helpful with food suggestions and other ideas to make sure this party was going to be a success - and it was!! Chef Gerry and Kendall were very professional and friendly. The quality of food and service was definitely 5 STAR!! We decided on having passed hors d'oeuvres and stationed platters. The food was beyond delicious and all my guests and I raved about every dish!! I absolutely loved having Chef Gerry and Kendall cater my party and I will definitely be hiring them again. Thank you Cultivated Tastes!!!

This is my first time using Susan Kane and her catering services. We used her to help us with a Broker event for Colliers International. We couldn't have asked for anything better! Susan and her team made our event such a memorable one and the food was beyond AMAZING! If you want perfection, Susan is the way to go! Thank you Susan! We will most definitely be using you again!

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

    I have hired Gerry for large cocktail parties as well as smaller intimate dinners Gerry and his team are amazing. His food is not only good but memorable - guests talk about it long after the party or dinner. There is always a variety of flavors and textures. His food is innovative and fun. In addition to amazing food he is extremely professional. I can’t recommend him enough for an event. You (and your palate) won’t be disappointed.

    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!
