Every party I have hosted,I never really got to enjoy. The crew at RUBUS SERVICES, gave me piece of mine, that I could stay out of the kitchen and be with my family and friends.Once I showed them around and what to do ,they took over. I had less stress,and they are such HAPPY PEOPLE! THE BEST WAIT STAFF EVER!

After having my initial event date change, I was worried about hiring a caterer on this site. :/ Actually, our original caterer canceled on us at the last minute, so we gave thumbtack a shot anyway. Chef Jose was quick to reply, and gave us the lowest quote out of the 4 we received. I told him about the bind we were in, and he ultimately told me that that they could make it happen. Chef Jose was easy to talk to and created a list of all of our preferred menu options. Surprisingly enough, he even took note of our favorite restaurants in the area, which I personally think was quite a touch of class. The following morning, Chef Brian called me to inform he had produced 3 menus based on Jose's notes, which appeared in my inbox to discuss. I was beyond amazed as Chef Brian scheduled a tasting at my request the following evening. My son and 2 of his friends, along with my wife and I, arrived to Chef Jose's office and were so impressed as soon as we walked in. The kitchen was all stainless steel, immaculately sanitized, and the tasting area was all set. Chef Brian arranged dish after dish, while Chef Jose described each and gave us a run down of how they would be executed at our event. They even offered us wine and champagne, as well as plenty of treats and items they had been working on earlier in the day. We literally felt like we were recording for a cooking show as both chefs featured some amazing French cheeses and their eclectic collection of different preserves! Oh, and the maple bacon popcorn!!! Oh, em gee...We were totally blown away, and felt so lucky to have our original caterer cancel on us for a more lucrative event. These guys rock!!! Totally seems like this team treats their work like fun as they are so passionate with their menu ideas, personable with their manners, and affable with their warmth for their clients. After how they took care of us, I couldn't help but to write such a thorough review. I highly recommend Chefs Jose & Brian from Dade County Food Group, and will insist that my friends have their functions catered by them, too.

My name is Lucero you can contact me for a direct reference @ lmsaldana@live.com. I am a lawyer by profession and I must admit I am VERY picky. My wedding was on April 19, 2014. I was referred to the Dancing Palate via Thumbtack. The Dancing Palate was AMAZING. Their quality of service and cuisine is unmatched. The guest loved the food. We requested the vegetable crudité, the vegetable quesadillas and the pulled pork a-top of fried plantains as appetizers and the mediterranean chicken and skirt steak as entrees. Everything was delicious and presented in a very classy manner. My wedding turned out perfect. The Chef, Paul Lobeck went out of his way to please me and my husband. His staff was incredibly professional. Their were five members of his staff present. You barely knew they were there. They offered quality service with more than affordable prices. This is a company that you should definitely consider for any occasion. Six of my guest already requested chef Lobeck's business card!!! Before signing on with the company, they offer a tasting. You tell the chef the dishes you want to try and he comes to your house and let's you try each dish. There is no commitment. The company left a great impression on me. I will definitely use their services for other occasions!

We started out just looking for someone to offer catering services to our wedding, but we found so much more with Tasty Creations! Chef David and his wonderful wife, Margarita, went above and beyond in every capacity. From the very first sit down, we knew something good was cookin’. The food was absolutely delicious! We had more variety in flavors with our meal choices than we found anywhere else. This dynamic duo not only provided a stellar meal that is fancy, French-cuisine worthy, they also helped us smooth out all the extra details that made our day a tremendous success. Working with Chef and Margarita, we were able to brainstorm some wonderful ideas that really added a lot of value to our wedding. They made planning and preparing for the big day so much fun and when the day came, they made sure that everything was taken care of so all we had left to do was relax, remembers our vows, and enjoy the day. Thank you Chef and Marga! You made our day an absolute wonder! -Jolly Green & String Bean

Can't say enough great things about Chef Traci and his assistant, Mary. Courteous, attentive, flexible, and of course, fantastic in all matters regarding food. Their Argentinian parrillada was an absolute hit at our party. The food was delicious and abundant. If you're looking for a worry-free, professional, and skilled caterer, I would highly recommend hiring Good Eating Sobe for your event.

Chef Segreto and his team prepared a wonderful meal in our retail store for a select group of customers, as well as a pre-event meal for our staff. The service was great as well, all falling within the budget we had set prior to the event. I was very impressed considering we have a non-gourmet kitchen in our store, but he managed to still prepare a gourmet meal with a beautiful presentation. And everything was delicious!

I booked this caterer for my wedding on 12/30/17. I'm Jamaican and my husband and I wanted the jerk chicken with rice and pease. We also had the chance to taste the food prior to booking for the wedding. We worked with Kathy and told her what we like and didn't like at the tasting. The food was awesome at the wedding ! I would like for the chef to be recognized. We had so many compliments about the food. To my regret i didn't get the chance to take any pictures of the food. The servers were so kind and punctual. They provided awesome services. Thank you all for the great work.

The service provided by Chef Garrido company was outstanding. Desiree was prompt, courteous and very professional. They provided a gourmet meal for over 50 people at my 60th birthday party. All my friends and family raved about the delicious food which was of the highest quality and cooked to perfection. They were extremely organized and efficient in serving this large group. Besides preparing the food they were extremely helpful in the kitchen organizing all aspects of the meal. I would highly recommend there company to anybody planning an event that needs to be catered . I know for sure I will use them again in the future. This survey is coming from a person that loves to eat. Thanks for all your help!! Howard & Sussy Rosen March 11, 2017

We were hosting an engagement party at our house for 20 people and decided to hire Paella VIP to make paella and tostones on-site. It was very easy to coordinate the menu and schedule for the event. Jorge, the owner, was very responsive to our messages and questions. The chef arrived early to setup and start preparing the food, carefully not disrupting any of the other preparations. The food was delicious and the service was top-notch. Everyone had large portions and greatly enjoyed their food. Highly recommended!

José was the epitome of a personal chef. I have set up events with chefs before and he blew us away with his professionalism, delicious cooking, and personality as a whole! Jose made the process very easy and he quoted a great price that we were comfortable with. He did not try to rip us off like other chefs try to do. We are all from out of town for a bachelorette party and wanted to do a fun night in to relax and have great food for our last night. He prepared homemade Chinese food with spring rolls, dumplings, fried rice, sticky chili chicken, broccoli, and a delicious chocolate cake cup dessert with vanilla ice cream! His sticky chili chicken had a Peruvian twist and was party favorite! A few of us have a serious peanut and shellfish allergy and he suggested foods to have on the menu and was very responsive to any needs we needed. I would recommend him to anyone and will definitely use if we are back in town! Thank you José!!!

An exceptional class taught by an exceptional Chef! I am working on my culinary certification and had asked Chef Maury's help to polish my skills up. It took a couple of months until I could finally schedule my class (my schedule won't permit) but Chef Maury replied promptly whenever I send him a message. The class itself lasted for about 4 hours, concentrating on knife skills, stock making and basic cooking techniques. He was very keen in making sure I make the right cuts and correcting me right away. His kitchen is a standard home kitchen so you don't have to worry about being intimidated by big equipment. Whether you have a culinary background like I do or just a home cook who wants to learn more, Chef Maury is the right guy to show you the ropes. I am already looking forward to my next class!
