Chef Serge et al were fantastic. I put together a surprise birthday party for my husband in my house and they were punctual, professional, responsive, and fun. I received many compliments on the food and will definitely refer anyone who asks!

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.

My parents' 50th wedding anniversary party was a special celebration made all the more enjoyable because of the wonderful menu and service provided by Chef Myles and his team. Chef Myles was easy to work during the planning stages and was the consummate professional on the day of the event. I whole-heartedly recommend Chef Myles and the Chefs2GoCatering Team and look forward to working with them again in the future.

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Chef Jackie. She is a delightful person, who also did a lovely job cooking, serving, and cleaning up for a small (4 people) dinner party. She arrived late, but did call to let us know, and she was ready when the guest of honor and her partner arrived. The presentation was nice, and the food was good. Her chocolate mousse was outstanding! She also did a great job of cleaning up. This is not a knock, but she doesn't stand on ceremony, so if you are looking for very formal service, this isn't it (which fit my style just fine). I definitely recommend her for catering a party, and expect she would be a wonderful teacher for a cooking class.

On a whim, I decided to use Thumbtack to find a caterer for my mom's 72nd birthday party. OMG. I am SOOOO glad that I did!! I have planned a number of parties in my day, and I have yet to find one with such great professionalism and wonderful customer service I experienced with AC Catering. First off, they can fix just about anything!! While I had a basic menu in mind, I was forced to rethink things based on the wide variety of options presented by AC Catering. Other caterers wanted me to come up with the menu initially without giving me an idea of their speciality items. With AC Catering, you can get ANYTHING from breakfast, lunch, dinner..including smoked pit grilled items. So, I contacted them with my initial thoughts for a menu. Within 2 days, I received a proposal from the owner, George. Pricing was perfect, even with delivery. Additionally, they provide utensils, plates, condiments, etc. I was pleased. I had to make a last minute change. George was able to accommodate my request with no hassle. I called him just to make sure this change wouldn't pose a problem. He said "No worries. I got you." And, he wasn't kidding. So, party day comes. I'm a bit nervous because I never tasted the food or visited his brick and mortar store. However, the previous reviews from Thumbtack customers were all stellar. After meeting George in person, I totally understand why the reviews are so stellar. George is extremely pleasant and engaging. He arrived on time and was totally prepared to set up everything. He shared some jokes with my brother. Gave compliments to the birthday girl. He even shared the history about his family business. This party was for 50+ people. So, everything had to be right. Let me just say that George and his team didn't disappoint! The greens (with smoked turkey), baked beans and rice were EXCELLENT. I've eaten a lot of rice in my day. But, can I tell you how fabulous the yellow rice is? Very delicious. For meats, I ordered bbq chicken and burgers. Again, everything was wonderful. You would think burgers would just be bland and lacking flavor. NOT AC Catering burgers. They were thick, juicy, and seasoned well. More than enough food was provided. In fact, I had to encourage guests to take home plates of food. The deviled eggs were tasty. However, they were a bit messy due to lots of filling. But, it was totally fine. My guests put the smash on them. All throughout the event, everyone had positive comments and asked "who catered the food?" I didn't hesitate to tell them about George and AC Catering. I HIGHLY recommend them. In fact, I'm trying to find another excuse to celebrate so I can utilize them again!! Thank you, George, for making my mom's birthday so great. You will be hearing from me again. May your catering business continue to grow. God Bless you and your family.

I began working with Richard months ago and made it very clear that I was working on a tight budget for my graduation/birthday party. He was very understandable and was able to work with my budget and provide me with excellent foods! He also gave me great advise on how to save money and to make the party better. Day of the party he was extremely helpful and the food was excellent! Everyone at the party raved about the food! I have already recommended him to many of my friends and hope that I will be able to work with him again!

I had the pleasure of utilizing Nikki's services this past weekend for a surprise girls weekend I planned for the my mother's birthday. When inquiring with Nikki, she was very responsive to my requests and helped pulled my vision together. Nikki and her husband were flawless with their execution of our breakfast and brunch events. I really enjoyed working with them and most importantly the food was excellent! The ladies in attendance were raving about the seafood quiche and shrimp & grits. Nikki's husband is a mixologist and whipped up a yummy strawberry mimosa for the ladies. Thank you Nikki for making my mother's birthday weekend a memorable event!

Sandra was fantastic! I hired her to prepare a gluten-free plated dinner for my parents' 60th birthday party - 6 adults and 2 preschoolers. She was pleasant to work with and efficient as we went back and forth on details and logistics. On the day of the event, she arrived with all the materials she needed and got right to work. My family was able to hang out and enjoy each other's company as Sandra cooked, set the table, plated and served the food, and cleaned up afterwards. And the food was fantastic! My sister-in-law raved about the flourless chocolate cake with vanilla bean whipped cream, "this is the dessert I didn't know I was waiting for my whole life!" Everyone really enjoyed the cuban salad with avocado and chicken enchiladas with mexican style rice and tomatillo salsa. And there were even leftovers! When Sandra left, the kitchen was nice and tidy and all the leftovers were labeled and put away in the fridge. What sets Sandra apart is her thoughtfulness: I really appreciated that she made sure everything was gluten free and even tested the recipe out ahead of time! She brought activity kits for the preschoolers. And she brought placemats and napkin rings as well.

My husband and I wanted to do something special and unusual and something everyone would remember for a long time for his 50th birthday. Gabriela and Set the Table was the be all end all. She arranged a wine and food pairing--picking the wines and menu, prepping and cooking all the food, serving--and left my kitchen spotless. The food and wines were absolutely delicious and amazing!! She is fun, engaging, personable, professional, knowledgeable, great with a crowd. The wining, dining, and pairing explanations were perfectly paced. She held a captive audience when it was time for her to talk about a wine, and we learned a lot and had fun at the same time! I can’t tell you how much we and everyone who came to the party enjoyed the evening. Our friends still talk about the experience. My husband kept saying how much fun it was, and it will be forever fun to reminisce the evening! Gabriela, you really made the celebration one to remember for everyone!! I can’t thank you enough. From start to finish, it was absolutely perfect. We can't wait to do it again.

I've utilized Pearl and Da Girls Catering Service on several occasions such as barbecues, birthday parties, and more recently my dad's repast after his funeral. For every event, the service, the price, and the professionalism was superb!!! But most importantly...the food...oh the food...was absolutely without a shadow of a doubt AMAZING!!! Finger licking delicious!! I've had my fair share of soul food at places like Henry's, Levi's, and Keith and Sons...but Pearl and Da Girls is by far my favorite...hands down! They SLAY!!!

Anna is absolutely amazing! She was our personal chef for a number of years until we moved out of the area. In that time, she made unbelievable meals for us that accommodated both dietary restrictions and food preferences. We also hired her to host a huge multi-course birthday dinner for my mother-in-law that was easily one of the best dinners we've ever had, all in the comfort and intimacy of our home. If you're looking for an amazing chef for any size meal or event, Anna is the go-to Chef!

We have a small office in Waynesboro where each year we get together to enjoy a small Christmas party complete with a Christmas dinner style luncheon. This year our budget was very strict so we were having a hard time finding a caterer and were thinking we would have to try and cook the meal ourselves and then bring it to work and try to keep it warm for lunch. and then I found thumbtack and through them we discovered the amazing Lil' Blue Cafe. Pamela came to us with her son and provided us with a delicious Christmas dinner style meal. The turkey and ham were so delicious and tender! The mashed potatoes and gravy were amazing! And my favorite was the mouthwatering macaroni and cheese! We were also treated with green beans, sweet potato with marshmallow topping and dinner rolls and cranberry relish. Everything was just so tasty that all of us are hoping and planning to invite her to cater again and again for next year. Thank you so much for being willing to come over the mountain and spoil us with your delicious cooking. Best.Christmas Party Meal. Ever!

Creative Cuisine catered my mothers 60th Birthday party and I couldn't be happier with their performance. The food was so delicious that guests of the party kept stopping me to inquire about the chef. The owner of the company Deshawn was an absolute professional he created a wonderful menu, he provided a great tasting of the menu options, and he executed the menu flawlessly. I will definitely be using this catering company for all of my catering needs in the future.

My husband's 50th Birthday party was a huge hit and our fantastic caterer helped to pull it all together. They created a reasonable bar and food package, included linen rentals and even went the extra mile to organize all my centerpiece displays on the day. They did a food tasting with us; which most of our visiting family participated in..all 12 of us. They got he thumbs up from everyone on the menu selections. Sandy was very accommodating to work with and became the glue that tied everything together which resulted in a seamless event. I loved that she stepped up as my event coordinator. All our guests raved about the food and service. We had a great time and would definitely use their team again.
