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

I hired Paul and The Dancing Palate for my wedding on November 20, 2015. Paul was wonderful from the start. We had a tasting right away and it went wonderfully. I had contact more than half a dozen caterers but couldn't get them to be as flexible as Paul was especially for the price. The Dancing Palate is a fantastic value. The food was served on time, warm, and I got many compliments after the wedding. We had 135 guests and a 90 minute sit down dinner. I wanted family style with items served in bowls and sharing, yet sit down at the same time. I didn't find many caterers that would do that, but Paul understood me and it was perfect. A real family meal at our rustic classic wedding. I was very happy with the Dancing Palate and if I had to plan my wedding all over again would hire him back.

From day one meeting David felt like seeing an old friend after a few years apart. He was so easy to work with and was open to all of our ideas and shared ideas of his own. After our wedding was postponed due to the hurricane, David and Josefina made the impossible possible. They literally went above and beyond to make our special day perfect, and that it was, simply perfect. The staff bent over backwards to cater to us and our guests, and the guest were lining up at the buffet line for seconds. The food was so amazing. Our family and friends had so many good things to say about the food. We not only got lucky to find an amazing catering company with Tasty Creations, but we also got lucky in making a new forever friendship with David and Josefina. Thank you so much for everything you did for us. We love you guys!! Kenny and Mimi March 18, 2018

I hired Exquisite Catering to cater (drop-off) my friend's baby shower. From beginning to end, I was extremely happy with the service I received. Sara was wonderful in helping us set up a menu to meet our needs and budget and was extremely responsive throughout the process. The gentleman who delivered our food and set up the buffet was super nice, on time, and did a great job. Pick up (of dishes, pans, etc) was also a breeze. The most important part...everyone loved the food!! Highly recommended and will definitely use again!

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 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.

Lori catered a dinner party for 7 in our home. She was so lovely to work with from day one. She was very professional, tidy and her pricing is fair. She is very flexible with food allergies and all types of dietary restrictions. The food was tasty--especially the bacon candy and the chocolate mousse. Overall she is a delight and I would enthusiastically recommend her to anyone. Her assistant Deb was also fabulous and a pleasure to work with.

This was the first time I had used Paella VIP. And I was very much pleasantly surprised. I did not know what to expect. Jorge, our cook, and the owner, came to our home when promised. He set up all of his cooking gear and food. We did not have to give him anything. He even had his own table (with skirt) and all of the utensils. He even served our guests. Food was delicious! Overall experience was outstanding. I highly recommend this company.

I was hosting some friends at my house and decided not to cook and order catered food instead. My brother, who does a lot of catering recommended that I check on Tumbtack. I found a company around my area called First Bite lead by chef owner Jose Andrich. After talking for a bit and letting him know how many people and what kind of cuisines did he offer, which is apparently everything from fine dining to casual cooking. Well me being Cuban and from miami, I decided to opt in for the roast pork shoulder, rice and beans, yuca, and mariquitas. (Which I didn’t order he threw them in on the house) Which was great cause everyone enjoyed them. Not only did First Bite meet my expectations, it exceed them by far. Thanks to Chef Jose and crew for making my event a success. Will definitely be ordering again soon.

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.

What a wonderful experience. Elaina helped me plan a beautiful 50th birthday party for my wife. Not only was the food and catering superb, but Elaina also helped me with hiring a wine tasting expert and lots of suggestions for other aspects of the party. I will definitely use Aspire Catering for my next event.
