This review is long overdue. We decided to get together for a celebration with 60 of our closes family and friends, we only had 3 days and my cousin suggested that we should contact Thumbtack to get a quote for this event. The only chef that contacted us was Junior ! We got on the phone and discuss the details for the party ,I was so happy to hear that I needed it not to worry because he would take care of it. He presented ideas of menus and drinks choices for our party and I have to say that is was a total hit ! We are still taking about not only the fact that he was so professional and on time with his staff but that his food was delicious ! The latino fried rice with sweet plantains crisp was to die for and we were blown away with the Baileys 3 Leches ! We had nothing left for the next day ! Thank you Junior for catering this last minute family event, we did get lucky by having you being the only one that answer our request !

This is a wonderful catering company! No food is delicious. Not your typical catering food. Sandy and the chef work with you to develop the best menu for your event. They took care of everything during our wedding. I recommend them without any hesitation.

The food was excellent!! We hired Red99 for our baseball team for 4 days (6 meals total). They provided great food and great service. The Chef even took time to talk to the guys and get to know them. While talking to the players, she found out one of our guys has Celiac Disease and brought him a special meal the following day. She went above and beyond and provided great food. We will definitely be using Red99 when we're in town again.

Kimberly by far is the best chef I have ever had. Her passion for cooking is displayed throughout her meal preparation and her delivery of the final product. I am so pleased with Kimberly's work and I would recommend her to any of my colleagues .

I called to set up a surprise dinner for my wife last minute and Chef Antoinae made it happen! Very professional and the food was amazing. We couldn't have been happier and will definitely be using her services again.

My parents are both retired and my father just had his shoulder reconstructed after a nasty run in with a golf cart. Mom is responsible for his passive physical therapy 3x a day. Since I could not travel to help out I wanted to send a few dinner meals so mom could focus on care taking and not on making dinner. Using Thumbtack I found Chef Niki. After reading her reviews and a few messages back and forth, we decided on 3 dinner meals for 2 adults consisting of a main dish, vegetables, side dish, and dessert. My father said "You hit a homerun with Chef Niki!" They were both so very pleased with the meals Chef Niki delivered. Nothing too fancy or crazy or unrecognizable (I was trying to send comfort not a new cuisine)- just really good food! Specific comments included: the spices and flavoring of the turkey meatloaf was fantastic, the chicken in the Chicken Schwarma was the most tender and moist they have been served in a meal, and the baked fish with a light sauce was flaky and just right. Chef Niki was very easy and fun to work with. I found her to be very responsive to my needs and messages. Once I indicated food preferences she was able to come up with many options for me to consider. She uses technology to make the entire process as simple and painless as possible - even though I was out of state. Even the payment and contract signing were just a few clicks. I was a little worried, having never used Thumbtack and hiring over the computer, but this was a beautiful experience, I highly recommend Chef Niki!

We are a catering co/ restaurant and had a job planned for a large party for some months, at the last moment they asked to add a pig roast to the menu, as it's not a speciality of ours we decided to bring in another catering co. to work with us on it, Frank was amazing he stepped in with a very limited time-frame to work within, the pig arrived on time looking great, it was cooked to perfection & tasted amazing, we hope to work alongside Chef Frank again on future jobs, Thanks Chef Frank !

I had Fred come in and do a private chef event. We had 6 courses and they were all phenomenal. It was designed as a tasting menu and was beyond my highest expectations. Thanks to him, I have a newfound love of scallops and creme brulee. The chef was personable and made the entire evening fun for my guests and me. His knowledge of food was outstanding and made the dinner even better. I will use G Sushi for events in the future!

Our guests raved about how amazing everything was. The Chef personally walked around to each table to make sure the food was great for our guests. Savyor Events are the most professional caterers. On time, helpful with creating a menu in our budget, and then delivering food that is fresh, hot, and delicious. For appetizers, I would highly recommend the bacon wrapped jumbo shrimp and the prosciutto wrapped mozzarella. Main course: My choice = sautéed mushrooms/steak and chicken/pineapple shish-ka-bobs was my favorite. The mushrooms were exquisite! Savyor's serving staff was a pleasure to work with; friendly, prompt, clean, and courteous. Definitely using Savyor Events for the holiday party!

The private cooking class was a Father's Day gift for my husband who let me say "can't cook". Chef Christophe was very responsive and listen to what type of experience I was looking to give my husband and Chef Christophe DELIVERED!!!!! He made my husband feel very comfortable and a very positive experience. My husband is now looking forward to possibly learning and cooking more. And the added plus is Chef Christophe help him to prepare and cook us a delicious meal. Thank you Chef Christophe! We look forward to our next cooking encounter with you.

Me Gusta Gustavo showed on time, was very professional, very accommodating even for my somewhat picky guests. His food was so delicious even the pickiest tried it all and loved it all. He even did the dishes. So much food great value more reasonable than most might think for a personal chef to come to your home and cook for you. He even does meal planning even for the strictest diet regimes. I would hire him again without question!!!

Everything about this company was fantastic. The food was master chef quality and the prices were too good to be true! They were very professional, responsive and on time. They are willing to fit your budget with a stress free GOURMET meal. All you have to do is invite your guests. I would highly recommend them for any of your catered events. They were awesome...Thank you Antoine, Victoria and rest of team for making our party a success.
