Chef Kev was fantastic! Great food, arrived on time and went above and beyond setting everything up beautifully. He really cared that everything was just right. Also the food was amazing!! I would definitely recommend him to a friend, and use his catering services again in the future.

Best value you could get in a wedding catering company! Quick basic info on my wedding since yours might be different: Late May wedding in Maryland, 7-hour reception with cocktail hour and dinner, approx. 100 guests, Manor, garden & tented reception setting, buffet dinner including a mix of food and drinks representing the cultures of the bride & groom (salvadoran, thai, new orleans, baltimore). Just two days after our wedding day I am feeling so good about the decision we made in booking Top of the City Catering. Maribel and her team were absolutely fantastic and we received soooo many compliments on our food, desserts, and cocktails, which were all provided by Top of the City. They had also done a great job of setting up décor for the guest tables, around the venue, and for the buffet and bar areas. In addition, the service throughout the day and night was phenomenal and we (bride & groom) always felt taken care of. For planning, we wanted a rustic, elegant feeling and they did a great job of presenting us ideas that were aligned with our vision. Top of the City Catering is a smaller catering business, but that does not make it any less in quality. When we were first looking into Top of the City I was a little leery because it was much more affordable and it usually is said, "You get what you pay for," but in this case that was NOT true at all. Maribel and her team are very responsive in communication, are very open and welcoming to your ideas and direction, and will always give suggestions from their expertise but still respect your wishes should you want something different. I really hope that Top of the City will gain momentum in growing its business and gaining the respect it deserves. Don't let the size of the company distract you from the amazing service, quality of food, flexibility, and affordable price you will get from Top of the City catering. Get a consultation with them and see for yourself!

Excellent service! I used their services for a Retirement Party. They arrived well of ahead of their scheduled time. Their music library and sound system are unbelievable. I received several compliments from the guests, young and old not one complaint. Both DJ's were very nice and friendly. I will definitely recommend their services to family and friends.

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.

Mary and her team were extremely attentive and responsive from the start! This was our first event with them, and I look forward to using their services again. The food was excellent and Mary even followed up with me after the event to check in on things.

Very tasty and authentic foods. As far as catering, the service was great and professional. I also had the opportunity to use Nasrin as a personal chef for my dinner party and it was a breeze to accommodate to the needs of my family. I would definitely recommend to all.

Thank you to Creative Visions Cuisine, LLC for the delicious food you made for my dad’s surprise birthday party. It was a pleasure to work with a company with so much insight into menu options that would work best for what we had in mind and for an outdoor venue. The selections were perfect! Also appreciated was the flexibility with last minute menu changes and your willingness to go above and beyond by helping us move everything indoors when the rain started.

Mrs. Wright catered my surprise graduation dinner, which was located at my Church Fellowship Dining Hall.The food was amazing and I loved the taste of the seafood, which was seasoned well, cooked thoroughly, served hot. My graduation dinner was a huge success, especially the dinner options because my guest were able to choose what they preferred to eat. The dinner menu was amazing and simple. She made sure that I was fine and satisfied with my food, and that my guests were all served and taken care of. There was plenty of food for my guests and I had no concerns. I was very impressed and pleased with everything. I really do appreciate Mrs. Wright for catering my event, making a great dinner, providing dinner options and a menu, and for sending me home with a plate. I would like to say a big thank you to Mrs. Wright for her hard work, excellent food, and great customer service.

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.

Chef Nikki is the BOMB.COM!! She and her husband Paul are excellent in the kitchen and on the grill... She can cook for me and my husband every day if she wants too, we will never turn her down...😂😂😘😘Every meal is excellent and tasteful down to the deserts. Nikki is very clean and sanitary, you don't have to worry. She takes her business and license very serious... I definitely recommend her for your next meal, your next desert or your next catering event... Also, make sure you check her out for your hair care needs on IG @Nikko.stylez.
