After having my initial event date change, I was worried about hiring a caterer on this site. :/ Actually, our original caterer canceled on us at the last minute, so we gave thumbtack a shot anyway. Chef Jose was quick to reply, and gave us the lowest quote out of the 4 we received. I told him about the bind we were in, and he ultimately told me that that they could make it happen. Chef Jose was easy to talk to and created a list of all of our preferred menu options. Surprisingly enough, he even took note of our favorite restaurants in the area, which I personally think was quite a touch of class. The following morning, Chef Brian called me to inform he had produced 3 menus based on Jose's notes, which appeared in my inbox to discuss. I was beyond amazed as Chef Brian scheduled a tasting at my request the following evening. My son and 2 of his friends, along with my wife and I, arrived to Chef Jose's office and were so impressed as soon as we walked in. The kitchen was all stainless steel, immaculately sanitized, and the tasting area was all set. Chef Brian arranged dish after dish, while Chef Jose described each and gave us a run down of how they would be executed at our event. They even offered us wine and champagne, as well as plenty of treats and items they had been working on earlier in the day. We literally felt like we were recording for a cooking show as both chefs featured some amazing French cheeses and their eclectic collection of different preserves! Oh, and the maple bacon popcorn!!! Oh, em gee...We were totally blown away, and felt so lucky to have our original caterer cancel on us for a more lucrative event. These guys rock!!! Totally seems like this team treats their work like fun as they are so passionate with their menu ideas, personable with their manners, and affable with their warmth for their clients. After how they took care of us, I couldn't help but to write such a thorough review. I highly recommend Chefs Jose & Brian from Dade County Food Group, and will insist that my friends have their functions catered by them, too.
Dan is one of the most kind chefs I haver ever worked with. He is a expert in his field. I look always forward to work with him and would highly recommend
I had a private cooking lesson with Chef Jeffrey Sternberg and I couldn't have been more pleased. My husband and I learned some new techniques and recipies. Chef Jeffrey was very professional and personable. Great food, great company I would definitely use Chef Jeffrey again in the future. I would highly recommend his cooking class!!!!
Chef Julian arrives on Mondays and creates 3 meals a week for me. I usually have enough left over from one or 2 of the dishes to get me through an entire week. The dishes are excellent and he works with me on the types of foods I do not like. The kitchen is spotless when he leaves, all I have to do is heat the meals up. It is great after working a long day not to have to figure out what dinner is going to be.
I booked this caterer for my wedding on 12/30/17. I'm Jamaican and my husband and I wanted the jerk chicken with rice and pease. We also had the chance to taste the food prior to booking for the wedding. We worked with Kathy and told her what we like and didn't like at the tasting. The food was awesome at the wedding ! I would like for the chef to be recognized. We had so many compliments about the food. To my regret i didn't get the chance to take any pictures of the food. The servers were so kind and punctual. They provided awesome services. Thank you all for the great work.
We were very lucky to have Chef Tim! His professionalism is outstanding; he replied when he said he would, answered our calls on time, and made it a point to understand my graduation party event, our tastes, my allergy, and even the tastes of our guests. I wanted a refined and elegant menu that didn't include anything having to do with pizza, pasta, salad, or bbq. He produced a menu that was also printable (great for framing and putting on the table for your guests to admire) that was delectable yet not too filling; (med-rare lamb lollipops, boursin-stuffed prosciutto wrapped dates) but also not stuffy- we also recommend the beer-cheese fondue! My favorite is the curry-chicken spoons. He arrived at our event in appropriate Chef attire with helpful written instructions and felt like a talented member of the family. Our only regret is we wish we had hired one of his staff to further execute, plate and pass the delcious-ness! It's hard to do it all. If this is available- DO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT. Additionally, the VALUE of hiring Chef Tim is very good- there was an abundance of extras and in all the parties I have had, (there have been many) I was surprised to see that my guests never ceased to be enjoying the food. Well done Chef Tim, you are sure to have repeat business from the Sanford-Basiaga household.
Chef garrido and staff were amazing, the food was delicious and on time. Very dependable caterer.Thanks for making my day wonderful
I could Never say enough about Tesia, and neither could my 6 bridesmaids! Ive been day dreaming about her incredible meals every day since we met! She was very organized and assertive and accommodating (which I've had trouble finding with other chefs), as incredible in her skill as promised, and not to mention she was fun loving and easy going - the perfect fit for our group of ladies. THANK YOU TESIA!! Until next time!!
Fantastic experience. My husband hired chef John to cater a holiday party for some of his clients. HUGE HIT!! The guests raved about the food! I Highly recommend chef John.
Chef Alex is amazing! She's so kind and always prepared, and you can tell that her staff really enjoys working for her!
I hosted a late brunch at my home for 6 and Chef Zsolt was amazing!! The food and presentation were fabulous.He was professional and kept my kitchen spotless as well !! It was nice to be spoiled and not have to worry about anything but my guests. Thank-you Chef Zsolt. Jan
I really enjoy everything served from this food truck. I have yet to be disappaointed. Finally some real carribean food served in your local area. The chef is extremely friendly and you can taste the love in his food. I highly recommend his ceviche, fish dip or my all time favorite the oxtail!
Food was delicious. I've hired a few private chefs in the past, and he is someone I would use again.
As a Chef my self I have to say that the food prepared by First Bute Catering was top quality and fresh products.
Kerry is an amazing pastry chef and beautiful person on the inside and out! I sent her the party invite and asked if she can match the design on the cake, add watercolor effect and nautical elements for my sister's baby shower. She matched the cake design perfectly and added her personal touch as well. It was tastefully done and came out elegant and way beyond my expectations! The cake was not only beautiful but also so tasty! Everyone were impressed and now two weeks later we still talk about it. Kerry was also professional and punctual. She kept communicating on the progress, asking questions, keeping me informed and delivered on time. Perfection!
Food was of the highest quality. Impeccable service delivered in a timely and efficient manner. Chef Joseph demonstrated professionalism and flexibility. I will definitely use Sub Carib for future events and would recommend them highly. Thank you Chef Joseph for making my daughter's graduation party memorable!
Moira Douglas and her team catered my milestone birthday party and both the food and service were wonderful. The appetizers, entrees and desserts were presented elegantly and the team made sure each of my guests were well cared for throughout the evening. I am happy to recommend The Silver Spoon. Lauri Ward
Chef Denise's cakes are not only gorgeous but moist and delicious. I would Highly recommend her for any occasion cake.
I absolutely love Chef Mark. He is fun and entertaining for guests, and his food is super delicious! I would highly recommend him to anyone and everyone in need of a private chef!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Your food and service was amazing and attention to detail fantastic ! Looking forward to hiring you again for our next event . !
