My job decided to put me in charge of catering our fall employee appreciation event. I wasn’t even sure where to start since I was not familiar with any caterers in the Montgomery County area. So I decided to go to the trusty internet to start my search. I came across thumbtack which is a great site by the way. You basically enter what you are looking for and like magic you start to receive quotes from different caterers in your area. Chef Kevin Reed was very prompt with his response and also included a sample menu with his quote which I thought was excellent. We conversed over email for a while and I was convinced this was the man for the job. I also was adamant about supporting a local small black business. The day of the event, He arrived on time along with his help. I told him what our theme would be and he nailed the set up perfectly. A beautiful fall theme was laid out in our employee lounge right before my eyes. The Chef and his staff were very personable and pleasant to work with. The food was hot, very good and healthy. My coworkers were very impressed with the food and service. I would definitely recommend his services. Hopefully we will be working together again soon on our company Holiday event. We have over 180 employees here and he was able to provide plenty of food and we had lots of leftovers. Kevin is top notch. Highly recommended.

The customer service and food were both top notch! Maribel and her staff were fantastic to work with throughout the planning process and the day of the event. She worked with me to ensure my needs were met, my questions were answered, and my concerns were eliminated! I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a caterer for any event.

I cannot say enough about how wonderful Floyd's DJ services was! They were professional, paid attention to detail, kept the party live and got involved with the crowd. My husband threw me a 40th birthday party and they really added to the specialness of my celebration. Everyone commented on how wonderful the music was and they accommodated guests requests as well as my special requests. To top it all off, I had an all green affair and they had beautiful green up lights for me and the DJs wore green too. I thought that was so nice and thoughtful to dress the part. At the end of the night both DJs engaged in nice conversation with my husband and I as they were breaking down their equipment. I was well pleased with their service and am going to recommend them for another event later in the year. If you need a DJ, go with Floyd's DJ service. I promise you will not be disappointed!

I enjoyed working with Dianna Gilbert of Catering Reserved because on my initial inquiry for caterers on thumbtack, she responded immediately. She listened to my requests and provided the menu I wanted. Ms Gilbert responded right away to any questions or concerns I had because this was all being planned from out of state. On the night of the dinner, the food arrived on time and was set up as she promised and I received many many compliments on the menu from my guests.

We hired Healthy Catering for a party at our home for 80 guests. Nasrin proposed a menu that included appetizers, entrees and desserts. Everything went well on the day of the event. Nasrin went the extra mile by making extra veg dishes that we didn't order. Our guests loved her vegetarian and non-veg dishes. Her food is wholesome and better than most restaurants that we've visited. I would definitely hire Nasrin again.

I cannot recommend Sandra highly enough. She was such a pleasure to work with all through the process of planning a brunch to celebrate our children's baptism. She talked through the menu and the schedule with us well in advance and kept in touch as she pulled all the pieces together. Her food was beautiful and absolutely delicious. And, she was attentive to every detail. She brought tablecloths and accents to match the colors of our kids' outfits and arranged beautiful flower arrangements to help decorate the house. She was cheerful and clearly invested in making sure we had a beautiful event. We have found our event caterer and look forward to working with Sandra again in the future!

When first meeting up with Darryl and family for a tasting it was a very pleasant experience. They were on time as well as being very professional with Darryl being in his chef attire with his delicious assortment of goodies. My future husband had never tried lamb chops before and was very reserved about trying them and evening having them as part of our menu however, Chef Darryl assured him if we did not like them we would definitely go with something else. Well to make a long story short, we are having lamb chops at our wedding. You guys are great at what you do so keep up the good work. One important thing I feel that a perfect wedding deserves is good food. I've seen some many times where these corporate caterers are giving you all this elaborate looking food that has no taste. Well not at my wedding. Thanks to Darryl and family we will not only have a wonderful wedding people will also talk about the food as well. Looking forward to a great wedding and working we you guys Thanks Tamra

I had the pleasure of attending a baby shower where this company catered the event, and from start to finish everything was so delicious. I have personally never had vegan food, and didn't know that there was so many options to choose from. I enjoyed the professionalism and the fact that the owner was present to answer any questions, and to explain what went into all the dishes on display. I just had to get her information so that she could come to one of my event and bless my company with some delicious healthy options.
