Chef Kev jumped in last minute on a funeral luncheon. Saved the day. Really great food and service. Terrific staff. Could not ask for more and an excellent price. Soooo many people at the luncheon commented about the food and service. Thank you, Chef Kev! You made a difficult day much more manageable.

Chef Serge was eager to please and worked with us throughout the planning process to design a menu that captured our vision for a family wedding dinner. He worked around a number of dietary needs (gluten free and vegetarian options), incorporated vegetables from our garden into several of the recipes, and he even adapted some of the recipes for the kids. The food and service were excellent!

Top of the City Catering offers incredible food paired with first class service. Maribel, the owner and her most professional staff did an amazing job at a military retirement party where the guests are still raving about the food and service. She is our go to caterer for all our events going forward. St. Jane de Chantal in Bethesda would give her six stars if we could.

Richard was a real pleasure to work with from the first phone call to the end of a very successful party. He was very helpful with his advice on our menu and with the guidance on the beverage purchases for a party our size (50,) He and Linda (the bartender) arrived on time and had the food laid out and the cooking stations and bar set up in plenty of time to start serving some early arriving guests. He circulated with the guests to make sure everyone was happy and had what they wanted and checked in with me throughout the evening to make sure all was going well from my perspective. Richard made crab cakes on the spot and they were a favorite. He also made delicious quesadillas on the spot, as well. His meatballs, chicken satay and stuffed mushrooms were all gobbled up. I overheard a couple of guests praising the peanut sauce and expressing interest in eating it by the spoonful:) All of the dips he provided were delicious as well. And the mini cheesecakes and cookies were also very good. All in all, Richard and Linda gave us a wonderful evening, without having to worry about a thing. To a person, I heard nothing but praise for the service and the food. I would hire Clever Catering again in a heartbeat:)

I genuinely can’t say enough good things about this business. I hired AC Catering for two events I held in June and July 2017. Everything was excellent! I was beyond happy with everything from the food, to the services, to the people I interacted with during the planning phase and the actual events. This small, family owned business actually exceeded my expectations. They have an extensive menu to choose from which allowed me to tailor both events’ meals appropriately. The pricing was great and the amount of food I received was more than enough. AC Catering received many compliments for the quality of their food at both of my events. I took a risk and hired them without having tasted any of their food, but I have to say there was no need for worry. The food was also delicious! Both my guests and I enjoyed every bite. The serve and clean up service was also top notch. George Sullivan and his staff were extremely attentive to my needs during my banquet. They helped to ensure that the dinner ran smoothly, and cleanup was quick and efficient. I can't leave this review without noting that it was a great pleasure working with George Sullivan (principal owner/operator) when coordinating my needs. He was very responsive to the myriad of questions I had, extremely flexible as I proposed changes for my event, and just an extremely nice guy. I am so glad I found this business. I will definitely be using AC Catering if I have any catering needs in the future.

Belinda is nothing short of amazing. Her skill across many types of food is incredible! It was very important to me that our family have healthy and delicious food -- Belinda created weekly menu's that delivered beyond our expectation. In addition to her wonderful culinary skills, she is warm, smart and friendly -- a complete pleasure to be around. We struck gold when we found Dinner on Demand!

I am a single man with diabetes who was looking for healthy diabetic friendly meals to be delivered to my home. I found Iyea Brandy on Thumbtack and have been extremely satisfied with her services. The food she brings is delicious, and most importantly doesn't increase my blood sugar levels. Her prices are very reasonable and she makes an effort to tailor her services to the individual client. I was very impressed with her knowledge of food and nutrition.

We were delighted! Chef Veronique MacRae, Exec Chef took care of everything. We were celebrating my Father-in-law's life. LTC John Burrer was laid to rest with his wife at Arlington National Cemetery on the 72nd anniversary of D-Day and LTC Burrer was a WWII and Korean War Veteran. We wanted a celebration of his life and food is a huge part of living. Chef Veronique was quick to understand what we wanted and she delivered. We had some idea about the number of guest we would have, but I was concerned that we would not know exactly how many could attend. Chef Veronique told me how she plans for events like this and she did not disappoint. We had plenty of food. Our service at Arlington started earlier then the scheduled time because we had all arrived early. So, that meant we returned to the Marriott Courtyard Rosslyn about an hour ahead of schedule. Chef Veronique had just started to set up when we showed up. She did not panic and continued to do her job in an expedited manner and had us ready to go in no time. There was a great variety of food for our guest to choose from. It was all very tasty and certainly exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend The Tasty Alternative. The food was great, the service was perfect, and the price was exceptional. Respectfully, Dennis L. Winston Salem, NC

They were great! Yvonne set up a custom menu for our Halloween event at the office and we couldn't have been happier. The office loved all the Halloween inspired desserts and food. They even took extra time to set up the dishes and make them look perfect with extra decorations. Will definitely be using them again for future events!

Nasrin and her crew were a pleasure to work with! She went the extra mile with a few of our guest’s dietary requirements/food allergies. All of the food was perfectly prepared and ready when my guests were hungry. That was the best food that we ever had with catering company and be that delicious. I recommend to anyone especially for Middle Eastern type of events. Everyone was well fed and pleasantly pleased with the food and service! Wonderful food from wonderful people!

The food was delicious - all our guests raved about the food! The staff was delightful and very hard working. They did a great job cleaning up as well. Everything was wonderfully done from start to finish!

I ordered a weeks worth of meals for a friend who was ill. Barbara was fast, extremely responsive, and helpful. She contacted my friend, worked with her to select a menu and delivered the food all ready to be frozen or cooked. I didn't get a chance to taste the food, so I can't comment on that, but I can say my friend was thrilled.

Dara is a wonderfully personable chef full of creative ideas for healthy, filling meals. It is clear she takes pride in her work and is committed to using only the freshest ingredients when preparing food for her clients. She is a meticulous organizer and is very flexible in adapting to any dietary restrictions or other concerns expressed by her clients. She cooked a delicious dinner for five of us not too long ago, complete with herb-roasted turkey, cauliflower mash, roasted brussels sprouts, and baked sweet potatoes and all of it was delightful. We are looking forward to enjoying more of her culinary creations in the near future!

    We are a family of 3. We really are looking for a chef who can come to the house and prepare food breakfast, lunch, dinner, a few times a week. We would want the chef to come prepare food that will last 2 days at a time. Also we would like the chef to do the grocery shopping as well. How much would this cost?
