Oh my gosh!!! Not enough words for this crazy, excellent result. We were expecting good food but the level delivered was way above our expectations. Maurice looks like Bruce Willis, has a voice like a thunderstorm and cooks like 5 star chef. He and his staff were so accommodating. They served everything and left the kitchen spotless. Plus, we had to move the event up and they still delivered our meal with no complaint and served a meal I have dreamed of for years. He even added an additional course which was sautéed dates stuffed with some miracle goat cheese he's developed. Try the dessert. Best chocolate cake I have ever eaten!!! Do yourself a favor and hire Hidalgo. You will be glad you did and if you aren't, I'll double your money back. Word.
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 !
We hired Dameon for a retirement dinner for 12 of our friends and family which was complicated with all our different dietary needs. Dameon was great in accommodating the meat eaters, vegans, etc and helped design a beautiful, delicious menu that everyone loved with 3 entree and appetizer options! He was great in making adjustments and came a couple days earlier to check on the kitchen of the home we rented. He brought 2 assistants to the dinner that were pleasant, and made the dinner comfortable and enjoyable. They came an hour earlier to set up and did a great job cleaning up as well. We didn't have to worry about a thing. They also adjusted to our needs when we decided to move the dinner to the pool area. He also provided a beautiful dessert as well as a cake to our specifications! Everything was delicious and we were so pleased we asked him to come back and do a brunch later in the week which was also amazing.
Chef Pam delivered a spectacular meal to our event for 14 people! I had never used Red99 Catering before this event, but I will surely use her catering services again! Our guests raved about the delicious entrees and side dishes, and were crazy about the desserts! I give Chef Pam a 5/5!!!
Chef Ron did an excellent job in preparing an exciting Paella on huge round paella grill, appetizers, Sangria, and a flambé dessert for our party of 50. The only negative was we were told he would bring a server to help pass out appetizers and that didn't happen which worked out fine anyway. We would definitely hire him again.
The food was delicious and the service was magnificent! Antoinae and her team went above and beyond to ensure that all our guests were taken care of and even last minute requests were made possible by Antoinae!
Really loved Kim and Cam! They were personable and sweet for our bachelorette party's casual setting. We asked questions about how they cooked, so it was a mini-lesson for us! I really appreciate Kim's responsiveness and professionalism as well. She tended to my vegetarian needs which was great. We got a Thai menu and our faves were the coconut soup, egg rolls, and cake for dessert.
Denise and her staff are wonderful to work with--the desserts were amazing.
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!
Having been a past proprietor of 2 restaurants,which included catering, I find myself very critical of full service catering companies. Therefore, after many interviews, I chose Top Shelf in hopes they could coordinate every facet of a very special celebration - my husband’s birthday and retirement. Top Shelf exceeded my expectations. My event was large and I asked for ethnicity decorations that would enhance my planned entertainment. I was very clear that I would except nothing less than great food and environment for my guest. Top Shelf actually provided me with greater than great. You just can’t complain when you get more than you ask for. Thank you Top Shelf, my friends and family are still raving over your beautifully presented food, desserts, and service.
My experience with Gourmet Crepes Cafe and Catering was delicious! I was having a party with some of my friends and Jean came to help me out making the best crepes I haven't had in a long time... Coming from Bretagne in France (where crepes are originally from), I really fell like home while tasting them. Perfumed perfectly with orange blossom, my guests were delighted and I was really happy I asked Jean to come. His smile and professionalism enchanted me and he really helped to the success of my party.
Anna was so great from day one... She is truly talented and proves she is a pro. I was very comfortable with her instantly and love her personality! She went above and beyond in every way! Every floral arrangement was gorgeous, she personly delivered everything and made sure it was kept absolutely beautiful until ready for use. She personally made sure every boutonniere was worn properly. The flowers were so gorgeous, some people asked me if they were real and were shocked to see that they were that perfect! I'm so impressed, and very happy that I hired Anna's Creations! I was also amazed to find out that she does so much more than flowers, from chair covers to aisle runners and other decorations, she is very talented and will do exactly what makes you happy. She made herself available, and I knew I could call her for anything, even last minute stuff!! **BONUS** She can get you in contact with caterers / photographers, etc..
Chef Al catered my sister's 60th birthday party and all of his food was absolutely wonderful! I highly recommend him for any event. Besides delicious food, his prices are reasonable.
Working with Em's Neighborhood Kitchen is always a Pleasure! Emily is such a delight and her food is delicious! I would definitely recommend her.
The service was good, they service the Trinidad and Tobago U19'S Rugby Team [31 persons]. for a period of eight days with breakfast,lunch and dinner.The meal were on time and well favored.I would recommend this company to any group .
Kristine's food is amazing for the body, mind and spirit! Her meals are delicious and made with love and care. We are not 100% vegan in all of our eating, but love healthy food. I highly recommend Kristine for your personal chef and professional catering needs.
Thank you Yummo Catering! My day could not have gone any better. The food was delicious and service was very professional. Thanks for handling the all the details so we could all enjoy ourselves.
He catered a BBQ baby shower I put on for my sister. We estimated about 100 guests. The food was well-liked and presented well. We had hot dogs burgers, bbq chicken, collard greens, salad and rice pilaf. The only problem was that he was supposed to arrive at 12 to begin grilling but arrived about an hour late (the event started at 2pm). But the event was on short notice-we contracted him about a week before. All in all everything went well and there was plenty of food.
