Chef Corwin stepped in to Cater one of our Resident's 105th Birthday Party. He responded quickly on such a short notice which impressed us greatly. The food was great! The Party Guests raved about the meal and the service was impeccable.We thank Chef Corwin for a job well done!! Deena Knight, Catering Coordinator Orlando Lutheran Towers

I regularly go to food truck events, and near my work they cycle through a variety of local food trucks for lunch. Having had most of the popular trucks as well as many of the lesser known ones, I can say with confidence that Louie's Bistro is the best. There are three main factors for my reasoning: 1) Quality. Louie takes pride in his truck. You can food is his passion and he doesn't want anyone to leave without a great meal. 2) Quantity. It's rare that a a service has both great quality and quantity. But the portions I get for the price are way better than any other truck in Orlando. The meals almost always come with sides like fries or rice. Most other trucks charge you extra. This is an incredible value. 3) Creativity. Louie constantly has "specials" outside of his regular menu. These keep me coming back and curious to see what he has next. He's had some of the most incredible duck confit, risotto, sriracha chicken, and you can't miss the filet mignon sandwich if it's there. He can cook any type of cuisine, including French, Cuban, Asian, Caribbean, etc. He knows how to bring the best flavors from these cuisines and integrate them into amazing tasting meals.

My Taste experience exceeded all expectations! I had the idea to host some friends for a special dinner but hit a road block when I realized I was not capable of carrying it out. My friend told me about Taste and I had a consult with the owner. Ashley was delightful and professional-full of great ideas and easily worked within my budget! She even went to the farmers market to source some of the ingredients! We had a specialty cocktail with apps, an amazing salad and entree and a super yummy dessert. She handled all the preparation and cleaned along the way! She brought out the dishes and explained what they were-it was like eating in a fine dining restaurant in my house! I had so much fun I forgot to take pictures but it was a stunning set up start to finish! I will be sure to post pictures next time! It was amazing! I will definitely be hiring Taste for future events!

    I have had the pleasure of dining at Cafe on the Avenue several times. The staff is wonderful and very helpful. Tracy is a very hands-on owner and shows great attention to detail. Chef Rudy prepares all food at the time of the order and it is always fresh and delicious. Tracy has done the catering for several years and has done quite well. If you are looking for a nice evening out with good food or are in the need of a good caterer you should contact Tracy at the Cafe.

    This was my first experience hiring a personal chef, but it won't be my last. From the menu to the quality and professionalism, this was a great way to have an incredible meal and let someone else do all the cooking. The food was prepared exactly as we wanted and having the chef in our home provided a much more personal experience to the meal. Kudos to Chef Kristen, can't wait to do it again. From all of my family, thank you!

    I had the couple prepare meals for me daily (and they included delivery!) while I was in Gainesville temporarily. The truly greatest things about having this service has been working with the couple. They are very responsive to messages and menu changes as necessary and meeting my dietary needs. We had to change a few things around menu-wise during the process but they were very helpful and receptive. Most importantly the food has been good quality and tasted great. This isn't the cheapest option, but for the convenience of getting quality meals prepared and delivered without worrying about my groceries going bad it has been a great value overall. I think especially in the future if I used them (which I would!) it would be perfect for anyone who is trying to do a weekly meal prep and just doesn't have the time, skill, or want to run around getting certain groceries he/she would only use once. Thanks guys!

    Where do I begin? I've had the privilege of calling Chef Bryan my friend for a very long time now. Throughout the many years of tasting his foods, whether it be a simple back yard cookout or a complex dish at Canvas, Bryan's passion for cooking stands out in every plate that he creates. He has introduced my palate to so many new and exciting spices and flavors that I would've never tried otherwise. His knowledge of different types of foods, cultures, and cuisine is mind blowing and it truly emanates in every bite of a dish he has prepared. I consider myself lucky to have tried so many of Chef Bryan's creations and always look forward to doing it again.
