We had a great experience with Danielle's bartender services. She created all the drinks we asked for and all of them were delicious! All our guests loved her to the point that she became a big part of the party's success. By the way, she has an amazing personality! We were beyond happy having her being part of our event.

Great company! They are very friendly and most importantly the food was delicious! The caterers created my menu custom to my needs, wants and visions. They forgot a few things and there were a couple hiccups in the road but they fixed them immediately and in the end, it all ran smoothly! I'm glad I chose them as my caterers.

As this was our first go-around without our mother who ran the best Christmas kitchen ever, we decided to look into catering which then led us to the "private chef" concept offered by Jeffrey Sternberg who owns and operates Rosemary and Thyme Catering. Jeffrey was one of 3 caterers who offered their services through Thumbtack, and right from his online presence, we knew that Jeffrey would be the one who would come through on the home-cooked feel we were seeking. One phone call led to an invitation to his home where we were regaled with samples of his work ... now that is service for you! Planning out the meals was a collaborative effort where we told Jeffrey about all our traditional fare over the 3-day feast with Jeffrey being most accommodating to our habitual dishes but all the while making recommendations here and there which we gladly accepted ... it was a very easy and enjoyable process. Everything was delicious, truly surpassing our expectations. There were even several batches of shortbread made up for our inspection before choosing the version that best matched the type of shortbread we were accustomed to. The cauliflower and celery casseroles were actually better than we had ever made ourselves and the filet roast of beef for the day after Christmas was without a doubt the best we'd ever tasted. If there was any negative to be found, it was simply in that there was way more food prepared for us than we could ever expect to eat ... we froze the leftovers and are still enjoying the odd Jeffrey meal ... talk about getting excellent value for your money! The only exception to the quantity was the gravy that only lasted the one meal of Christmas dinner. And Jeffrey also surprised us with plenty of extras like a 4th appetizer that we had not ordered, dips that we had not ordered for the appetizers, and mayo and mustard spreads for our sandwiches, and the killer was an extra turkey roasted in the oven in case we did not end up being fond of the grilled turkey that he recommended. The one hitch was that the re-heating instructions did not specify "convection" or take into account that all six dishes were to be reheated in the oven simultaneously, so the food was not ready when we were led to believe it would be, but it was well worth the wait in the end because everything was outstanding. Service, service, service ... that is what Jeffrey is all about ... and he really knows what he's doing ... you can just relax or else spend the time you save in the kitchen fretting over more interesting Christmas activities ... Thanks so very much to you Jeffrey ... you saved the Holidays for us ... the best to you and your family in 2016. Lorri H. Jan 07/16

The whole team from The Dancing Palate were great. I have to commend Claudia, the manager, she looked after myself and my spouse throughout the whole event by bringing us water, or a drink, appetizer when we were having our pictures taken, during dinner etc. Even when I was overwhelmed with emotions she readily came to calm me down and give me reassurances. The served buffett dinner went without a hitch. All the guests were delighted with the appetizers and the dinner served. We had a four hour open bar and it also went smooth. Have to commend the bartender for the night, she was an absolute delight. Last but not least, our Chef, Paul. Thank you for making a special day more special.

We hired David and his staff for our wedding on 11/19/16 and we do not have any regrets! We found out about Tasty Creations through Thumbtack, browsed the website and thought he would be a great match, surely enough he was! Our wedding consisted of 150 guests and were served cocktail appetizers, dinner, and celebratory champagne. The food was delicious and David produced unique flavors with each dish that won over our guests. It was an absolute pleasure to work with David and his crew. They were extremely professional, licensed and insured, quick to communicate with, and very friendly!! My husband & I would chose Tasty Creations again if we did it all over again :)

We had our event last night. The food arrived early. We were wonderfully happy with the additional items: soda, water, utensils, etc. The food was delicious. The salad greens were fresh. The individual portions were large enough and the total amount of food allowed for many people enjoying seconds on everything. The cost per plate was exceptionally affordable for getting three meats. The vegetables were done to perfection. The rice was light and flaky. I have shared your request for feedback with the other members of the caterer committee, so you may be getting more feedback from them.

Chef Tim was fantastic. His preparation and presentation was fabulous. He was outgoing and very attentive and no detail was overlooked. His staff and himself did a fabulous job, I had nothing to clean at the end of the night and nothing to worry about during the night. Chef thinks of everything. All of his appetizers were delicious and am still being complimented on the food. His beef skewers are highly recommended. My only negative was a few of the dinner selections I made were slightly bland. I will definitely use him again and recommend him and all 35 of my guests said how terrific the evening was because of Chef and his staff.

The JKL caterers showed up a little early, which was great. They set everything up quickly, and were very friendly. There was plenty of food, and it was delicious! We were very happy with JKL, and we look forward to having them cater our future events.

We hired Mr. G's catering for a 50th anniversary dinner (drop off) for 11 people. He was prompt in responding and sent a detailed proposal, which he was happy to make adjustments to. At the dinner he set up the food in an attractive way, and when the dinner was over, he came back and removed everything. The food itself was delicious and well prepared. His price was very reasonable and his service was excellent. I would highly recommend him for catering a dinner.

If I had to only say a couple of words, I would say amazing and fresh! My guests were speaking about how delicious, fresh, and authentic the food was not only the day of the event, but until the next day! We had the paella Valenciana and the tostones rellenos as appetizers. From the moment the appetizers were tasted, all the guests were thrilled! I would highly recommend that you use Jorge Ramos' services. He is professional, cordial, honest and works with you from the beginning to the end and your guests and you will be very happy!

These girls are awesome. I was hosting a baby shower. From the beginning my family loved them. The food was delicious. The fan favorite was the tequila shrimp appetizer, veggie dish. Overall we had a wonderful experience. The girls were understanding and flexible. Thank you, ladies :). I highly recommend Conscious Bite to anyone who is looking to have their event catered.

We booked Jose for our annual girls trip dinner. He was very professional and his work quality was outstanding. His food was delicious. His famous chocolate brownies are to die for (wish I could have one right now 👌🏼). Jose is very kind and polite and his prices are unbeatable. Not only did Jose catered our dinner, he also took some pics for us. (Jack of all trades! Lol). I will definitely book Jose again if we return to Florida.

Chef Robyn was the caterer at our wedding and handled everything to perfection. She coordinated her own team of professionals and, while dealing with some kitchen equipment malfunctions on site (our rental house oven didn't work!), Chef Robyn somehow executed a delicious meal that was the star of our special day. She was dressed fashionably and professionally when she came out of the kitchen a few times to check on things and to make sure we had a special plate so that the two of us got to taste each of the amazing 'passed apps' while we were busy during the cocktail hour. Everyone raved about the food & the service, even going back to the dinner buffet multiple times. I would recommend Chef Robyn to anyone for an event large or small.

I had the pleasure of sampling some of that GrenHous cuisine when Mark was the guest chef at the BB&T Arena. He and his staff were extremely informative when I asked about the ingredients and preparation of the juiciest airline chicken breast on butternut squash puree I've ever had, followed by the energyballs dessert(had 5!) made with almonds, chia, flax, dates, coconut...Fiiiiire! The food is excellent. Presentation first class. But more than anything i was very impressed by their attitudes, pride in what they were serving. These dudes are passionate about what they do. Do yourself a damn favor and treat yourself to experiencing this food!

Aspire Catering, specifically Elaina and Mike Moran, created the PERFECT Rehearsal Dinner for my 150 guests to kick off my dream wedding weekend on a truly memorable note! My (now) husband and I wanted to get creative and incorporate our honeymoon into the theme of our Rehearsal Dinner and Elaina and Mike went WAY out of their way to make that happen! We created an Italian side of the room (featuring delicious homemade meatballs, focaccia, active pasta station, salads, meats, cheeses, etc) and a Greek side of the room (featuring out of this world homemade hummus, spanakopita, salads, kebobs, vegetable spreads, etc) and my family, friends and out of towners were blown away with the quality and true authenticity of what was created!!!! Aspire Catering’s staff was warm and welcoming and truly surpassed all expectations – and expectations were high!!! The team also staffed our bar, provided mixers and created a beautiful dessert spread, which also incorporated our honeymoon theme. Mike and Elaina of Aspire Catering listened to my crazy ideas and made all my ideas come to life! They are the greatest people, will become a part of your family and are incredible at what they do!!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Aspire Catering for small and large occasions from personal functions to corporate! They also helped setup the entire room, add personalized décor elements and turned a raw space into a beautiful space!!!! Fabulous people, fabulous product, fabulous memories!!! A+++ ALL AROUND!!!

    Orangel came to our home on New Years Eve and provided personal Chef services to myself and my wife. He prepared and cooked a gourmet meal as we watched. He plated and served and as we enjoyed eating, he quietly cleaned all the pots and pans. The meal was excellent.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
