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
Delicious food. Very professional. So easy to work with. Everyone @ the party raved about the food! Thank you very much Matthew.
Chef Tim, his daughter and their team were absolutely amazing for my sisters wedding. They were a dream to work with, the food was delicious and the bride, groom, and guests were all very pleased! Thank you so much for making her special day even more special!!!
Señor Pepe's paella was perfect for our wedding, he was on time, the food was delicious, fresh and all our guests raved about it and wanted to take some paella home with them. He was great throughout the process, he provided great service. I'd hire him again without a doubt.
Imagine a caterer...who sets up outdoors amid cars and campers, serves 35 people all their meals during 3 days of meetings...happily fields dietary and take away plate requests, keeps hot and cold drinks always at the ready, serves gaily decorated buffet breakfast and lunch, prepares AND delivers boxed lunches to a beach meeting...unobtrusively plate serves dinner DURING meetings, pours the wine each of us had brought so our glasses were never empty...who made our retreat in April truly remarkable. With true passion and expertise. And a concern and vested interest in a perfect function that equaled ours. All with smiles and laughter. That caterer would be Stacey and her enthusiastic helper Tori. Stacey was instrumental during the planning. We presented Stacey - with just three weeks notice - the concept for a backyard retreat. She propelled it into a classy, organized function. If you, too, are perfectionists, you can safely let Stacey do the worrying for you! When she left, we felt like our friend was gone. Thank you, Stacey, for the healthy and varied dishes you created. Definitely the highlight of our retreat!
We highly highly recommend Lilo's All American Cafe to cater your next event! Their food was delicious, high quality and the quantities were abundant. All our guests raved about it. They were outstanding and had excellent customer service. We will definitely have them cater our next event!

Diago and his team from day 1 were amazing!!! From our first meeting, he treated us like family and it never changed. The food is delicious... service was professional and on point, and the displays of food were beautiful!

Phyllis catered a party in our home for 50 people. She was a pleasure to work with! The food was delicious & everyone raved about it! Her staff was excellent. The entire evening was perfect & I would recommend her to anyone!! Thanks again! Lauren Kramer Goldvasser
Hugh gave a cooking class for a group of 10 girls in Miami. He was organized and prepared and did a wonderful job of explaining each dish and letting the group participate in the lesson. The food was absolutely delicious and catered to all of the dietary preferences of the group, which was no small feat because there were many. The presentation fantastic and Hugh was a joy to work with!
we had contacted Julie of Jx3 Events to run our daughters Bat Mitzvah. We had left most of the details to the last minute and had nothing planned. JX3 came on and was able to put the entire party together in a matter of weeks.When we walked into the room we were blown away.it was awesome beyond anything we had planned for. The dj took control and ran the party from the moment we got there.Everyone raved over what a great party and how much fun they had.Thank you Julie for making everything special and stress free. Even the venue commented on how great they were to work with
Great food, wonderful people. Quality consistent. Do you like something special, just ask and miracles do happen :-) Enjoy their delicious food but... make sure to leave something for us, though !!
This is the third time I have hired Chef David. This was a welcome party for my law firm to welcome my new associate for over 50 people. David turned out an incredible spread of delicious foods that my guests raved over. We loved the food. He is meticulous in detail and layers the flavors in each dish. I loved the leftovers for the next day in my immaculate kitchen. David is courteous, organized, time sensitive and a great chef. You will love the food and the experience!
With years of experience and catering functions to her credit, Chef Alice knows how to put on a delicious, well thought out, fabulous event! Chef Alice catered two Graduation parties and everything was presented beautifully, tasting delicious, and at a perfect temperature. She helped me chose what to serve and included gluten free options for our events. My family and guests thoroughly enjoyed our experience with Chef Alice Catering. From gourmet seafood BBQs and outdoor buffets to delectable canapes and three-course meals, Chef Alice can create the perfect menu for your perfect day.
Marc was FABULOUS! He was very easy to work with and very flexible in creating a menu for diverse Jewish family group of 16. THE FOOD WAS DELICIOUS. Chicken, brisket, sweet potatoes, kugel, veggies: All outstanding! Marc provided the linens and a server. (The kids wanted to go home with Crystal.) Part of the meal was served at the table, part was buffet (served by Marc and Crystal) - all to rave reviews, including the four children under 8. Last minute, we requested a sugar free dessert for a diabetic family member which became a big hit. Marc and his team did the clean up and left our condo's 'Club Room' spotless. DEFINITELY RECOMMENDED.
Willing to make gluten free food along with regular food. Both were good. Set up and cleaned up everything very nicely. Was concerned that everything at function was presented well. Nice job, thank you!
Deedra was very easy to work with. She was responsive, helpful with planning and logistics, and punctual with a creatively decorated cake and assortment of cupcakes, including gluten-free. Everything was delicious!
My wife and I had my brother, his wife, my niece and her husband and new baby in town. We decided to hire Rosemary to prepare our special dinner. She met with us the night before, when we planned the menu. She did the shopping for us and arrived on time to start cooking and preparing our meal. She helped me select the wines to serve with our appetizer and later, with our dinner. The soup, the salad, the sea bass entree with vegetables were all phenomenal. Rosemary served, cleared completed plates off the table, put dirty plates and silverware into our dishwasher, and prepared our dessert and plates. Everyone had the best meal!! We couldn't have been more pleased. THANKS, Rosemary!!
the best, he make very easy for me, the food is the best all my guests loved, very reasonable price
