I hired Lyon Catering to prepare a personal dinner for my husband's birthday. The food was excellent. Chef Shary was both personable and professional. We will certainly recommend her to others.Sep 30, 2019Verified
Chef Shary met our expectations and beyond. Food was flavorful and presentation on point. She also adapted her recommended menu for our tastes and everyone raved about the dinner. She was kind and courteous and made sure the kitchen was nice and clean before she left. We have plenty of leftovers too! I would def hire Chef Shary again :DNov 10, 2019Verified

Seriously best catering experience ever! When every single guest comes up to you and raves about the food you know the party was a complete success! Honestly I should have taken more of her cards, even the day after people were messaging for her contact info....it really was that exceptional! Thank you Chef Shary and Nicholas for you perfect attention to detail, original cuisine and beautiful presentation!Aug 26, 2019VerifiedGourmet Catering Solutions's reply

Chef Shary was amazing! We came to visit from California and I must say that the food was amazing. She did a beautiful set up and came on time. I would recommend her for any event even with such short notice, she did an amazing job. The chicken was to die for and the Mac n cheese was the best I’ve ever had. Next time I’m in town I will be definitely using her for any catering services.Aug 11, 2019VerifiedGourmet Catering Solutions's reply
Thanks so much Jackie!! I'm glad you and your family enjoyed the meal.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Catering: The price noted is the base price it includes food and menu consultation, basic equipment and set up. If the event is full service then there are additional charges for service, china and glassware, additional labor if needed, and a service fee of 22%. Drop off catering has a delivery fee of $150-200 depending on location. Private Chef Services are $55/ hr plus the cost of food per person. The hourly charge will be charged for prep, shopping and travel time to the event.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?While Thumbtack does give us a lot of information regarding the event we always like to speak with the client to know and understand the scope of their event, food preferences, allergies, steps of service, time lines etc... The more we know about your event the better prepared we can be to exceed your expectations. Typically we also like to do a site inspection of the event space prior to events whenever possible and discuss with the client the flow of the event and what makes the most sense for set up and execution.
