Let me start by saying that as an event planner, I would like to refer Chef Kev as my "caterer of choice" to all of my clients. Chef Kevin's catering company is FABULOUS! He is not only has a wonderful personality - but it is clear that he loves what he does and is passionate about preparing quality and healthy food. His food and customer care are outstanding. He was able to accommodate our law firm open house of 70 with no problem. He planned a creative and exquisite menu, arrived early before the event, came well prepared and set up a beautiful table. The guests were blown away by his food - which was DELICIOUS! Several guests requested his business card, and there were actually no leftovers... (Teriyaki Meatballs and Mesquite Chicken Wings were to die for!).

Our experience with Kevin could not have been better. He is quick to respond to every question or change in the menu, guest count or timing. The food was exceptional. The Honey ginger meatballs and cajan salmon bites were real crowd pleasers. Will recommend Kevin to all my clients looking for catering recommendations.

Well well well, I'm not sure where to begin. Chef Serge is FABULOUS! His food is phenomenal and he is very creative with his menu. I had such a hard time narrowing down my selection. His personality is upbeat, lively and FUN! And all while cooking amazing food! I emphatically recommend Chef Serge to anyone looking for a CHEF, a cook, a caterer, anything you can use him for, do it! He also brought an assistant who was equally as pleasant and amazing.

Serge catered for our office holiday party. He made a grilled romaine salad, chicken roulade with potatoes and mixed vegetables, and a chocolate tart. Everything was delicious, I was very impressed! I had never had catering done for our office parties before (sadly, we have always just done pizza or something similar), but this was definitely much better for a special occasion, and very reasonably priced. I would not hesitate to use Pure Kitchen Culinary Concept again!

How on earth can a business have a perfect 5-star rating? That's what I was wondering when I looked at the reviews for Top of the City Catering. In this modern world when everyone is demanding, and people will gladly leave you a scathing review for the slightest offense, I was amazed that this business was pushing ahead with a solid 5 stars every time. Working with them for my wedding, I soon found out that it is because their service is worth around 100 stars, and there isn't a rating scale for this level of professionalism. 5 stars? Ha! Top of the City catering should be named Top of the World catering because you won't find better FOOD or SERVICE anywhere. 1. Communication is impeccable. I never, ever, had to worry about whether or not I would hear back from Maribel. She was easy to correspond with and provided expert advice. 2. Pricing was extremely transparent. We went over several versions of price breakdowns for the services and nothing was ever a surprise. Everything was clearly listed line by line and no phony charges were ever included. 3. Quality of the food was incredible. Not overloaded with salt, grease or sauces to mask a subpar product. The food was expertly prepared, in generous portions, without cutting corners or employing marked up cheap tricks. Simply amazing, fresh food. 4. Professionalism of the onsite staff was amazing. Each person was calm and knew exactly what to do, no confusion or stalling. And everyone was extremely cordial and polite! The staff was in and out quickly and invisibly, making sure everything was perfect at all times. Maribel and her team were an absolute pleasure to work with over the several months leading up to the wedding. Its not every day that you GLADLY write a check for a service you received. Disappointment is not part of their business plan! One last thing: one of my wedding guests came up to me during the evening, grabbed my arm and said "The food is amazing!!....Oh, and congratulations!!"

I can tell you from experience that Top of the City is by far and away the best deal for a 5 star catering experience. Our 6th daughter was just married and I wish we had found Top of the City for the first 5. They gave us the best price with the most elegance and the most complete service than any of the previous caterers we used or interviewed, and we probably have checked out 30 during the past few years. Our guests raved over the appetizers, the dinner was nicely prepared and plentiful. The staff was very professional and friendly. Our wedding reception went smoothly and we were free to enjoy ourselves. Maribel the owner was immediately responsive every step of the way in the planning and flexible in accommodating our special needs and desires. Top of the City gets my vote for the best deal in town.

We had our wedding yesterday, 8/20/16, and we cannot say enough great things about Top of the City Catering! Maribel, Noel, and their team did an amazing job - truly above and beyond! The food, service, and decorations were awesome. It was better than we envisioned and it was all thanks to them. We made the best decision when we chose them as our caterer. If you want a stress-free, beautiful wedding with delicious food and impeccable service, then choose Top of the City Catering. Truly the best!

Eleven courses is an exceptional caterer. Their food and service is top notch and the best part is that they were able to work within our budget. Multiple guests told me after the wedding the food was was the best wedding dinner that they have ever had. Good food makes people happy, so I highly recommend them. Eleven Courses was perfect for us because they have set packages for the dinner and you get to pick from a long lists of delicious options. We added hor dourves and desserts, which were also a big hit with our guests. It was like seeing kids in a candy store when people first saw the dessert table displayed. Eleven Courses can also provide all the staffing necessary. The staff at our wedding was extremely friendly and seemed to really enjoy the work. They had a team of waiters to handle the service and cleanup, plus two bartenders that were all managed by the Eleven Courses. We were blessed to have Melissa Benson, who was the catering manager. She is professional, sharp, and extremely competent! She knows how to work with couples, and from the initial contact, to the tasting, to the e-mails leading up to the big day everything was executed exactly how we asked for it and exactly how we envisioned it. The confidence we had in her and her team allowed us to focus on other things and actually enjoy the wedding itself! I really can’t say enough about the great work of eleven courses and would again highly recommend them for any event!

Eleven Courses did a wonderful job catering our wedding on Friday. Jim came up with a delicious personalized vegan menu for us, and he always responded to emails quickly whenever I had questions. On the wedding day, Chrissy was our catering coordinator, and she made sure we had everything we needed all night. I was also impressed with how quickly their staff was able to flip the room during cocktail hour since we had our ceremony and reception in the same place. Thank you!

They were very cordial and very professional, and went out of their way to work with us to accommodate our individual needs on very short notice (we literally hired them the day before). They were also highly sensitive to the fact that the catering was for a memorial service for an immediate family member, and were extremely helpful in choosing an appropriate buffet to fit our budget. In the end, they were kind enough to drop the fees for the last hour because we ended up not needing it, which they technically didn't have to do and was much appreciated. They arrived on time and had everything set up and ready to go when we came back to the venue after the burial service. The food was very good and well-presented, with complements by the guests, and the staff was seamless in doing their work. We would definitely use this company again.

Key Ingredients did the catering for my son's wedding. Not only was the food delicious, but Carla and Javier are so accommodating and easy to work with! In the last couple of weeks we decided to change from buffet style to family style, I called Carla and no problem. Two days before the wedding the bride and groom decided that they would like to offer lemonade to the guests at the ceremony, again I called Carla and again no problem plus no additional charge. They even took food to the bride and groom before the wedding during the long photo shoot with the photographer. I would use them again in a minute! Thanks for everything Carla and Javier.

Kelly Lloyd, the Events Coordinator, was a spectacular support both before and during the wedding reception. She assisted with excellent choices for the menu.

We had Catering Reserved cater our company Holiday party and I cannot say enough about how wonderful this company is is. Dianna was so easy to work with. She took care of all my questions, concerns, and needs with phenomenal professionalism. Her patience with me while I was trying to organize a corporate event, waiting on final menu selections, head counts, and final approvals from the owners was unparalleled. Maritza was our event captain for the party and she and her staff were FANTASTIC! The servers and bartender were so sweet and friendly. Their attention to detail and willingness to help with last minute adjustments was such a blessing. The food was INCREDIBLE. Everything from the appetizers to the entrees and sides, right down to dessert, was SO DELICIOUS. I have never had so many employees come to me to express how great the good was. I am so grateful for Catering Reserved, not just for the amazing food, but for the truly fantastic staff, and for the tremendous and sincere effort in helping me put together a great 100+ person event. I cannot wait to have another reason to employ their services and I wholeheartedly recommend them for any event.

Owner Richard Cohen is unflaggingly genial, very hands on, and overall a delight to work with. He obviously wanted us to have exactly what we wanted and was ready with suggestions from his years of experience when we were undecided. We have no kitchen at our venue; so he brought in everything, with only a staging area provided by us. The food truly was delicious and beautifully presented. Hot foods were hot, and cold foods were cold. His servers and bartender were pleasant, accommodating, and professional. All included - not just the food but tables, linens, plates, napkins, glassware, everything - he kept our once in a lifetime (50th anniversary) event within our requested budget. I highly recommend Clever Catering. No downside, no reservations. Of course I'd hire them again!

I recently used Dinner on Demand to cater my graduation party. Not only was Chef B exceptionally professional but her food was delicious; two things you want from a chef! My favorite part of this process was collaborating with Chef B about the menu. I’m a one-note cook, making the same boring meals weekly, but together she helped me to come up with a menu that would satisfy my family and accommodate two of my friends’ special diets—one is vegan and the other has a gluten allergy. Typically party food for me is wings, chips and dip and some hot dogs and hamburgers. For my party, Chef B assembled muffuletta sliders on Hawaiian bread as the opening act. No boring chips and dip here! While we noshed on the sliders she sliced up the roasted brisket which was encrusted with garlic and sea-salt and served with chimichurri sauce. She also sautéed some sweet potato clear noodles with veggies and put together a mixed green salad with sliced pear, smoky bacon, blue cheese crumbles and chopped egg—a lovely mix of tangy and sweet. To top off this fantastic meal she made a homemade flan that was so tasty, folks in my family who “don’t eat that kind of stuff,” were tearing into the rich vanilla-laden custard with so much gusto, I had to put some to the side and stash in the back of the fridge. I would use Chef B’s services again. When you watch her cook you know this is what she loves to do and that love comes through the food.

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.

Chef Jackie catered a breakfast in our home the morning after our son's bar mitzvah. She delivered exactly as promised, honored our dietary restrictions, and our guests specifically commented on the many good quiches she made. The only note I would make is that for coffee service, she only needed to bring regular flavored coffee and regular milk/cream, which we could have advised on if asked.

Veronique was an amazing chef and were couldn't have been more pleased with our experience. She cooked an abundant and highly flavorful meal for our family of 16. Her food was beyond my expectations. She even made a separate meal (from start to finish) for my daughter who doesn't eat meat. Her ingredients were well chosen and fresh. Her personality was pleasant and fun. She even allowed our kids to help her prepare the meal as a fun way to participate in the evening. She stayed much longer than I thought she might to make sure our meal was thorough and complete. And to top it off, she dealt with a challenging kitchen that might have left less skilled chefs floundering a bit.

Karen Wilder provided catering for my New Years Eve 2016 wedding. The food was excellent! Everything was well seasoned, tender, and flavorful. My wedding did not have a traditional kitchen with a stove, we used chafing dishes. Nevertheless, the food was hot as though it had just come out of the oven! We had a cocktail hour where her staff passed around appetizers - the lamb chops, sushi, and Maryland crab cakes were exceptional! The bartender was quick to serve drinks, and made very good drinks. She also delivered drinks to guests' tables. The staff cleaned up afterwards, and contained any left over food for us after the event. You cannot go wrong with this food! Top notch!

Columbia Chef is my go-to catering company. I use them for everything from a 10 person meeting, to a 150 person luncheon or dinner. They are always helpful, prompt and friendly. They respond quickly to requests for information, which helps me make informed decisions about my menu so that I can get on to the other parts of planning the event. Columbia Chef Catering is part of my event planning team.

From start to finish this was a painless and incredibly impressive experience. I host plenty of professional business development or marketing events that are catered and in upscale venues, and CCC was as good, if not better in many respects, than those catering services 3 and 4 times his costs. Will for sure use them again.

I have attended a few events coordinated by this group. They have always produced events which were more than expected. They do a great job all the way around - always punctual, very professional, and responsive to the needs of the host and guests. I have been particularly impressed with the consistency of excellence across different budgets. The last event I attended was a repast. Apparently the hosts wanted a nice event on a minimal budget. The FGM coordinators did a great job setting up, and decorating the space. The menu was very well selected, and there was plenty of food for all.

Amazing! I was a bit hesitant as they are a smaller company, but turns out I had nothing to worry about! So responsive, so attentive, and their partners were all professional. Did I mention the food?! There was enough for all 150 of my guests, and it was delicious. She even provided to-go containers! I’ve never had a caterer do that. Will definitely be using them again for future events. Thank you!

Ms. West was extremely professional in all ways. She is a good communicator and patient as she works with you. She followed up on what she says and promises which engenders trust and minimizes anxiety. She went the extra mile for me. I highly recommend her business.

Talk of Di Town catered my wedding and it was amazing. Every point of service starting with the guest being greeted by the chef and his wife (The Owners)at the door to the food tasting like it was made back home on the Islands. My family was very impressed with how professional the whole affair was and how beautiful everything turned out, especially the food. I will most certainly be using them for all my affairs to come and recommend them to all family and friends

We hired Talk Of Di Town to cater my sister's bridal shower. We found them on social media after a friend told us about their food. We had several appetizers - meatballs, mini sandwiches, and bruschetta. They also provided entrees and desserts that did not disappoint! The food was wonderful! The pasta and rice dish was my favorite. They even made us cake pops, which was a late addition to the menu. I would use them again in a heart beat!

Talk of Di Town 2 surprises me every time as they prove they're not just another Caribbean food caterer, but will cater to a variety of foods with their own surprising twist on it! The presentation is always fabulous when catering events and the food is always top quality! I would recommend Talk of Di Town 2 for any occasion, as they will certainly accommodate. - Customer since 2013

I took Dorina’s Functional Home Cooking Course through the local adult school last fall. I have continued to take weekly classes since then. Dorina’s emphasis is on cooking quick, nutritious meals using wholesome ingredients. Her forte is Italian cooking but she has a broad knowledge of foods and other styles of cooking. Her classes are well organized. Topics touched on during class include the choice of ingredients, possible variations and substitutions, nutrition, tricks of the trade, and tips on where to shop. Dorina is friendly and engaging and her classes are informative and enjoyable. Her class is the perfect starting point for someone with little experience in cooking who wants to learn the basics. Her class would also be valuable for a person with some experience in the kitchen who wants to broaden their perspective.

I hosted a group cooking class at my home with Chef Dorina. What a great time! There were 9 of us and everyone got involved everyone learned and the meal we made was amazing! The best part is Dorina teaches things in a way that makes it easy to learn and remember. I will be making the dishes I learned now on a regular basis! We have already set up another class for next month... we all can't wait! Thanks Dorina!

I had an office brunch for about 35-40 people. First things first, the food was AMAZING!! The chicken and waffles was a big hit and the homemade spicy syrup was so creatively delicious. Seriously I've never had anything like it. The customer service was excellent, she went above and beyond to make this event easy for me. The staff thoroughly enjoyed, and she worked with my not so generous budget. Highly recommended!

I attended an event where Petite Eats was catering and I could not get enough of the bite sized treats! The chef truly took her time in presenting the food and blending flavors. She had a habanero maple syrup to pair with the chicken and waffles entree which was DELECTABLE. I plan to use her for future events for sure and would recommend her anytime.
