FABULOUS!!!!! We have tried some of the finest restaurants in Miami for our holiday lunches and they have not worked out so well. I just can't say enough about how good the food was and how happy the staff was. Thank you so much.

Today was the second time I have used Dade County Food Group. If you have ever put a lunch or a dinner together then you know the headache it is dealing with finding someone to cater. Something always goes wrong, expectations fall short- you truly never know. Not with these guys! They found me right away after I had put an add on Thumbtack for a catering company to work our very high profile corporate lunch. They were extremely communicative, super friendly, quick to draft up ideas, and seemingly very eager so I took a chance... Lets just say the rest was history. Given very short notice and a few unique requests they were able to put together an amazing presentation, delicious menu, and overall a seamless experience. We were all so impressed that as soon as the next corporate lunch catering opportunity arose Dade County Food Group immediately came to mind... Just as quick as before Chef Brian jumped right on it taking his observations of our group (based on the last lunch) into consideration. I knew I could rest assured that there would be nothing to worry about. We made it through today's lunch just as impressed as the first time (Did not think it was possible considering how great our first experience with them was). Everything was beyond amazing and I look forward to working with Dade County Group for all future events! Thank you team!

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 start to finish via customer support, service, options, pricing, flexibility, courteous, delivery, set-up, pickup, food presentation, excellent tasting food. This caterer/catering service is without question, without doubt, unequivocally the best! Thank you for Exquisite for being everything you advertise, and even more. The milestone event was a big success largely due to your service. At least several guest preserved the napkins with your contact info, and 1 guest will be contacting you service shortly for their own upcoming event. The food was awesome not only in presentation, but in taste as well! Thank you again!

I recently hired Chef Laura to do a cocktail party for 100 people in April 2015 . She and her staff were AMAZING! I priced several caterers for my event and her services and prices couldn't be beat. When she works your event you can really tell she has passion for what she does and her food tastes amazing. I would defiantly hire her again because she brings all professionalism without the attitude most caterers have. It was a pleasure working with her.

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.

Great communication, food and service at a fair price. We hired The Event Group for a photo shoot. The food was a big success with everyone. Love the fact that Starbucks coffee is an option for both breakfast and lunch.

I used Lori's catering services for a small get together and birthday party for about 30 people. Since I was a novice at party giving, Lori was very good about checking in with me along the way and making suggestions about both the menu and the setup. We had more than enough food which had been a particular worry of mine since I could not picture amounts. The party was for noon on a Sunday and I elected to do sort of a blend between a brunch and a lunch. In particular, the strata, mango salad and berry fruit salad were the most popular and I found that the dressings, sauces and spreads that accompanied the food were what added to the uniqueness of the ham, rolls and other salads. Everything was tasty and fresh. The delivery person was on time and helpful with food placement as it was a buffet style. The dishes were all set to go on platters and we supplied the serving utensils and beverages. I would certainly recommend Lori for whatever occasion you might need these services.

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.

I had the pleasure of eating with Di Big Jerk during lunch at work one day...the Jerk burger I had was phenomenal and packed with flavor. That same night I ate with Di Big Jerk but tried something different. I had the shrimp tacos and fell in love all over again the flavors were like fireworks. Y'all have to try anything on the truck you will not be disappointed.

Sajay's Catering went beyond my expectations. The food was delicious. The professionalism was superb. He definitely catered my likes and wants in that meal. I appreciate the immediate responses and communication; in understanding that I'm dieting and a very picky eater. I didn't expect such a delightful meal. However, I enjoyed every bite! I recommend Sajay's Catering to anyone that enjoys great food.

I love her food!!! I recently attended an event she catered and also a few other events she has catered in the past and I must say that she has a true passion for what she does. Her food is amazingly delicious that it will leave your taste buds satisfied and wanting more. She is very professional and has a great personality. She is by far the best in my books. I highly recommend her services. Anyone asks me if I know of any good caterers, she is the only one I recommend. I look forward to attending more events she caters and most definitely will be requesting her services for my next event. Elouaze Alexis Catering rocks!!!!!
