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.
Omg. I have nothing but mad Respect for this Chef☝️. Everything was perfect! He stayed in contact with me thru out the process. Was on time and the food 🥘 was amazing. Every thing was perfect. Will be using this chef every time we go to Florida!
Jeffrey was absolutely outstanding!! Everything he made was incredibly delicious; he went above and beyond what he was supposed to do (he brought or made many extra things that were not included); Jeffrey and his sous chef, Kathleen, were both very professional, and had a great personalities. By the time we left, they felt like good family friends. We would absolutely recommend Jeffrey to anyone looking for an outstanding chef! He really helped to make our trip so special.
The whole team from The Dancing Palate were great. I have to commend Claudia, the manager, she looked after myself and my spouse throughout the whole event by bringing us water, or a drink, appetizer when we were having our pictures taken, during dinner etc. Even when I was overwhelmed with emotions she readily came to calm me down and give me reassurances. The served buffett dinner went without a hitch. All the guests were delighted with the appetizers and the dinner served. We had a four hour open bar and it also went smooth. Have to commend the bartender for the night, she was an absolute delight. Last but not least, our Chef, Paul. Thank you for making a special day more special.
Chef David and all of the tasty creations staff made our night perfect! We couldn't have asked for a better experience! I wouldn't hesitate at all to hire them again. Food was amazing, service was amazing and David worked really closely with me and my wife to give us everything we could dream up!
I had a wonderful experience with Chef Traci, he worked extremely hard to accommodate our request as well as several changes we had to make and made wonderful food for our event, and at a very competitive price too! I'm definitely going to hire him again for any of our catering needs!!
Chef Segreto was phenomenal! He catered a work Christmas party for us at our home. He was very professional and easy to work with. His food was amazing. He prepared the best hors d'oeuvres I've ever had from a caterer. The crabcakes, lamb chops, beef Wellington and tuna with mango salsa were absolutely delicious. We also loved the cheese platter and grilled vegetable platter. Their server was excellent and they left the kitchen spotless. I would highly highly recommend hiring chef Segreto.
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.
Chef Melissa and Shawn catered a cocktail party we hosted at our home. They were fantastic. The food was great and they cleaned everything up afterwards.
Garrido was the first caterer to respond to my inquiry, which shows that they are on the ball to begin with. Upon speaking with Desiree, I felt an immediate sense of trustworthiness and a true commitment to making one's day special. My wife's 40th surprise party was a HUGE success! All guests made consistent remarks about how pretty and delicious the food was. The ceviche.....legendary in all ways! We will continue to hire and recommend this team at any opportunity. Desiree shows up and takes any party-planning stress immediately off the table. That alone is worth its weight in gold! Friendly, talented and dependable.....what more do you need in a catering company?
Tesia was great! Food was a amazing and she was very personable and easy.
Chef O is the best! and I'm not one to hand out praise very freely. The food was on point and very well executed (we should have ordered even more :) even though we were very well fed), service and attention to detail was top notch, and we felt like we were dealing with an old friend and not just a chef for hire. You won't regret using these guys. Thanks again chef! We will be using you again real soon.
Food was delicious. I've hired a few private chefs in the past, and he is someone I would use again.
José was the epitome of a personal chef. I have set up events with chefs before and he blew us away with his professionalism, delicious cooking, and personality as a whole! Jose made the process very easy and he quoted a great price that we were comfortable with. He did not try to rip us off like other chefs try to do. We are all from out of town for a bachelorette party and wanted to do a fun night in to relax and have great food for our last night. He prepared homemade Chinese food with spring rolls, dumplings, fried rice, sticky chili chicken, broccoli, and a delicious chocolate cake cup dessert with vanilla ice cream! His sticky chili chicken had a Peruvian twist and was party favorite! A few of us have a serious peanut and shellfish allergy and he suggested foods to have on the menu and was very responsive to any needs we needed. I would recommend him to anyone and will definitely use if we are back in town! Thank you José!!!
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!
I used Chef Jimmy Dean to cater a bridal shower for roughly 20 people. He replied promptly, worked with me to create the exact menu I was looking for, and showed up on time the day of the event. Everyone enjoyed the food and he was a pleasure to work with.
She is an awesome amazing chef!!! Best personality as well!!! Great for small business affairs and classy for black tie events! Again best catering available with reasonable prices!!!
My wife and our friends decided to hire a chef for our last night on vacation and man are we glad we did! Chef Davin's 4-course fusion menu met and exceeded all our expectations! Being from New York I must admit I can be hard to impress but was in no way disappointed with Davin's unique & tasty flavor combinations! His rosemary- coconut sorbet palette cleanser was just one of many highlights from our evening! Bravo Chef!
5 stars! Such a pleasure to work with and food was out of this world! Can't say enough good things about Chef Nirva! Can't wait to work with her again! I highly highly recommend her 😀
Chef Alaine and Sarah were unbelievable! Food outstanding, professional and even gave us some great cooking tips throughout the night. Clean up amazing! They were amazing!
