We used Chef Paul for a private dinner with 10 guests. He had wonderful menu suggestions and worked within our budget. He started with an amuse bouche which is caramelized red onion and goat cheese puff pastry. It was delicious and complimentary! Then we had a Thai salmon salad beautifully presented with a nice balance of flavors. The main was chicken breast with creamy wild mushroom risotto. It almost melted in your mouth! Dessert was a strawberry mille feuille which is layers of puffed pastry, sweet cream cheese, strawberries and strawberry sauce. We were all very happy with Chef Paul and will certainly be using him again in the near future.

Brian and Katie were fabulous. I was planning a luncheon for faculty at my school. Based on our budget, Brian suggested a couple of options. I decided on the Baked potato/Salad Bar. It was delicious. the potatoes were huge, and the toppings (crisp bacon, cheese, sour cream, butter, broccoli, and chili) were fresh and substantial. The chili was so good that many of my colleagues just ate it with some amazing jalapeno cornbread. The salad bar had cucumbers, tomatoes, mushrooms, feta and parmesan cheese, sunflowers seeds, and two dressings. People raved about the produce and were especially pleased that they had three types of greens --- romaine, mixed greens, and spinach. The dessert trays were large and the cake pops were especially good. We could not have been happier with the food and the service. the food arrived in time and the set up was perfect. We will definitely utilize Tortoise & Hare again!!!

Theresa came to our home last night and cooked an AMAZING meal for 8 of us. I wanted to have a nice dinner party to celebrate my husband's birthday and she FAR exceeded my expectations. I hired her just this week ( the dinner was a last-minute idea) and I was a little concerned about her having enough time to fully prepare everything we wanted. Plus, we had a guest with severe food allergies and I know that can be nerve-wracking for chefs. But not for Theresa! She arrived with a smile, totally armed with every single pot, pan, knife and ingredient she needed to make a spectacular dinner. She even brought flowers and sweet little menus for the table settings! I can't even describe the food. Well, let me try... It was perfectly prepared, seasoned just right and not "fussy." The sauce on the lamb lollipops was sweet and delicious and didn't overpower the meat. The Caesar salad, served family-style (which I love with an intimate group of close friends) was the best ANY of us had ever had (she tossed shaved cucumbers in the salad -- who knew?!) Oh, and the beef! I had told Theresa that my husband loves tenderloin and was picky about it because he cooks it so well. She didn't skip a beat. It was seared, then cooked perfectly. The dessert had people asking for seconds! Who asks for seconds of chocolate cake after such an amazing meal?!? My guests do when Theresa's in my kitchen! She was professional, polite, flexible (our babysitter is vegan and I asked Theresa if she'd mind making her a salad. She did it with a smile and an "Of course!"), sweet with our guests (I even had one guest teasing her with "rating" each course) and just an all-around pleasure to have in our home. I scored major points with my husband -- he said it was one of his favorite birthdays ever! And the best part is, I didn't have to do a thing! I was able to sit back and enjoy my guests. What a treat! We can't wait to have her back.

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.

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.

The food was awesome! I give Bombay Blues 5 star. The service and atmosphere was awesome. The curried lamb was very flavorful and tender. The lentils were rich and creamy. I really love the saffron ice cream. I recommend you try it once and you will come back for more. Thank for bringing a beautiful dinning experience to Glen Burnie.

My soup was absolutely delicious. I had minestrone and chicken noodle soup. The seasoning was perfectly balanced resulting in a melody on my tongue and a beautiful symphony in my tummy 🤗🤗🤗. Ashley's presentation always prepares you for a wonderful experience in enjoying a meal made perfectly from her heart. We love you Ashley, thank you. Next on my list is cream of crab. 🌺

Tom helped make my wedding go off without a hitch. The crab cakes were phenomenal and the salad was delicious. The beef kabob I had was a bit dry, but all-in-all his service was tremendous. As a stressed out bride, I really appreciated his calmness and prompt arrival. He set himself up in the kitchen, requiring little to no direction from myself. He is extremely friendly and fun to have around. Would definitely recommend him again.

When we were planning our wedding we contacted so many caterers and were disappointed so many times until we met Chef Brett. We waited for caterers to get back to us for what seemed like forever only to do a tasting and find that the food was gross. That is until we met Chef Brett. He called me back from my first email within the hour and spoke to me at length about what i was looking for. He set up a private tasting for me and my husband and the food was fantastic. He only exceeded my expectations when it came to the actual wedding. People raved about the food and are still talking about his Native American butternut squash soup. Wolfmoon catering did such an awesome job and We really can't thank you enough. We will gladly use Chef Brett again for all of our Catering needs. THANKS AGAIN Angela

Tenna Williams made a strawberry punch bowl it had strawberries, pound cake, and some sort of cream or something, but that's not the point. The point is it was delicious, mouthwatering, and palatable.

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.

I hired Nourrie Cuisine to cater a baby shower brunch for a friend. Elena presented us with a number of options to choose from. She delivered everything the evening before--because the event was in DC. Everyone loved the food. There were multiple finger food options, including raspberry and cream cheese puff pastries and these wonderful vegan sausage appetizers. I would recommend her to anyone and will defiantly hire her again.

Abstrak Cuisine catered a very important party for me and I could not have chosen a more wonderful chef for this event. Jamie worked with me on the perfect menu: shrimp and grits, honey Hennesey wings, greens, ribs, huss puppies (!), cornbread, fried corn, rum cake, cookies and cream cake and chocolate cake. Jamie and her team drove many miles to make this event memorable and they were a resounding success. We had a great time, loved the food and her gracious, hard-working team were a delight to interact with. Can't say enough good things. I just wish I lived closer so I could treat myself to here amazing magic in the kitchen everyday.

I love this bakery! So far I have ordered two custom cakes, and four orders of chocolate covered strawberries. One cake was a woman leaning on a little red corvette. The detail was impeccable .... She gave the woman Locs just like the birthday girls hair. The chocolate covered strawberries were plump, juicy and so very very sweet! I will use this bakery for every Ocassion. My orders were delivered on time and the bakery is very professional. I would recommend this bakery to everyone. Phenomenal work!!!!!!!

Chef Bordley catered a small gathering for a few of my friends!! Not only was he punctual, had all of his tools, food was prepped and ready to cook. He was extremely professional, knowledgeable, and personable and to top it off the food and presentation of it was OUTSTANDING!!! My friends and I still have about how delicious everything was. He prepared a broiled salmon with a butter sauce and shrimp, loaded twice baked potatoes, a steam vegetable medley and a refreshing pineapple ice tea!!!!

Recently (summer)had Chef Bobby D Catering cater my wedding anniversary party after a friend gave them a glowing recommendation. I was a little worried to do a party so far from where I live, but I couldn't have been happier with their work. Bobby, the owner, was so kind and seemed to be very intent on making sure we didn't have to worry about anything. I'll be recommending them to all my friends and family please try the grilled salmon with the ginger cream sauce- A++

Ariko went up and beyond to make sure my baby shower was beautiful. I was worried because I used a school gym as a venue and was not sure how the room will look, but Ariko made the space look beautiful. I was so in love with it. What put the icing on the cake for me was the tulle skirt she made for the candy table. It was gorgeous. Thank you Ariko!!
