How do I begin to explain what a great experience we had with Junior & Kitchen's Portal as our bartender? From the very beginning, Junior was responsive and thorough in explaining his prices and services. He was so easy to get in touch with for any questions (which were quite a few lol) that I had, and went above and beyond to make sure my fiance and I were happy with all arrangements made. When I asked about a creative signature drink, Junior emailed us 3 different ones to choose from that were unique. We decided on a cocktail that was a twist on a moscow mule with a brown sugar rim that was refreshing and delicious. Junior made sure even during formal pictures my hubby and I had a drink in our hand (which he remembered that my hubby's drink was an old-fashioned). From the moment he arrived at the venue, he went straight to work to make sure everything was set up on time. Not only did he attend to all our guests with respect, friendliness, and courtesy Junior also addressed other vendors to ensure our wedding continued to flow perfectly. My family members & friends all raved about how attentive and professional Junior, his bartenders, and his waitstaff were throughout the whole wedding. I had the pleasure of speaking with all of them towards the end of the evening, and thanking them for helping make my wedding day as special as it was. I would 100% recommend Kitchen's Portal to anyone & would definitely use them again for an event.

Chef Vivian just catered our wedding down in Clearwater at out beach house. There were only 30 people, but we wanted everything very upscale. Coming from out-of-state, we were obviously nervous hiring anyone sight unseen to handle the occasion. We met up with her a few days before the wedding. She was extremely nice and reassuring, and went over everything. She came a few hours early to prepare and when we returned from the ceremony, everything was set up and went perfectly. Every part of the meal was beyond expectation. Her staff was extremely friendly, courteous, and professional. We receive compliments on the meal all that night and throughout the next day. We were extremely happy with her and would highly recommend her for your event! It was a true pleasure to have her service.

We were stressed about the wedding, having very little funds and family to help us plan the event. Once Upon a Caterong stood by us and helped us through every detail, offering help where they could find it. This Caterong company is more than that, they are a wonderful family that does everything in the best interest of the client. We had two separate venues for The ceremony and the reception and no one to help set up the reception. By just leaving over filled boxes of decorations and a text message to the caterer, our wedding venue was decorated just as we imagined it. Thank you so much for being our caterer. Even the venue workers stated they worked over 100 weddings but ours was one of the most smooth running with the help of this catering company.

My name is Christian and I am 10 years old. My mom is Brenda and she is the assistant to Chef Paola. She is Florida’s best Italian chef serving Italian food like creamy pasta to fresh desserts. I really liked her Chicken Piccata, Bourbon Sausage, Limoncello cheesecake, and Red Velvet Cake. You will love everything she whips up in the kitchen. I hope you choose Chef Paola because she is the greatest Italian chef in Florida.

This review is defiantly a late one, but, its needed. Nikki ( The white table) was the caterer for my wedding on March 18, 2017. Held at the Ocoee Lakeshore Center in Ocoee Fl. Everything may not have gone as planned but, they worked with us on things that we wanted and was able to provide us with a request that they probably had never done before. Because we are in a similar business as food service is concerned ourselfs, we wanted to bring in things and they allowed us to. The food was good as so was their service. We were greatful for them and appreciate everything that was able to be done for us on such a short notice and limited time frame. My husband and I live in Tallahassee fl, our wedding was in Orlando fl. So we had some challenges with the fact that it was a out of town wedding we werent able to meet Nikki until the day before out wedding because of our sehedule and everything still turned out wonderfully! Thank You Nikki!

I live in Pittsburgh, PA and hosted a morning after wedding brunch for 50-60 people in Tarpon Springs, FL. Laura from Emerald catering was very easy to work with. She was prompt in her correspondence with me and offered helpful suggestions. She was also willing to work with me to make sure I had what I needed. Food was delivered on time and was delicious.

Not only did they pull together a 30 person event for me and less than 12 hours but the food was amazing and the customer service as well as professionalism was outstanding. I was very worried when my original caterer ended up not being a reliable source at the last minute and I was scrounging for someone to help with this event. Luckily I found one that I can use for many events in the future.

I can't say enough good things about this company!! They catered our wedding over a year ago and people are STILL asking me what was in the potatoes. The food was HOT (why is wedding food always cold!?) and super delicious. The servers were very friendly and professional, Garry was incredibly easy to work with. I plan to use them for any occasion I get the chance!

Stephanie did a fantastic job in providing a variety of absolutely delicious hors d'oeuvres for our daughter's wedding rehearsal gathering at our home for almost 60 friends and family members. All of her dishes received rave reviews, but especially the Tuscan Stuffed Shrooms, Siracha Shrimp Skewers, and the Hot Garlic Artichoke Dip! And that's not even mentioning the great desserts! She exceeded all of our expectations with her excellent culinary skills and cordial demeanor. She is a pro! We would hire her again in a heartbeat!

Thank you so much to TNT Catering for the incredible food at our wedding! Very professional and very personable, we strongly recommend them to anyone looking for event catering! We met for a taste test meal and they made a special menu to fit our budget for 100 people. Excellent communication! The food at your wedding makes a huge impact on your day and we chose barbeque for our rustic barn wedding. Everyone LOVED it! Thank you again TNT!

They did a phenomenal job and provided excellent service! We were very pleased with the professionalism they displayed. The actual food at the reception was better than what we were served at our tasting. They worked with us over the several months we spent in planning and were very professional at all times. Very reasonably priced for the quality and excellent service we received. We also rented specialty chairs and the tables from them. They have many other items for rental that made The Purple Platter our effortless one-stop shopping experience. There were some last minute adjustments due to the weather, Farah and her crew worked with us flawlessly through these changes. The event went without a hitch. We highly recommend them for your wedding or any affair for which you need catering. Farah and her team rock! -Lilian and Prentice
