What a wonderful evening provided us. Chef Maurice cooked a spectacular meal and was so personable and friendly to everyone attending. The food was phenomenally good, better than we thought it world be and huge portions. He left our kitchen cleaner than it has ever been and really made our dinner a smashing success. Count on this company for your next party cuz we will be using them forever.

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 !

Dameon was early, prepared and impressive when it came to customer service for my backyard dinner party. All that did not compare to the presentation and taste of the food. We had party of 14 and he handled the night like the top class chef he is. My home was transformed into a five star restaurant. Thanks Chef Dameon!

The food was excellent!! We hired Red99 for our baseball team for 4 days (6 meals total). They provided great food and great service. The Chef even took time to talk to the guys and get to know them. While talking to the players, she found out one of our guys has Celiac Disease and brought him a special meal the following day. She went above and beyond and provided great food. We will definitely be using Red99 when we're in town again.

I had my wedding at Fort De Soto Park in Tierra Verde, FL on October 27, 2017. My husband and I wanted a casual beach wedding. I wanted a fully customized vegetarian menu with no eggs, garlic or onion. It was difficult to find a catering company that would customize a menu of this kind. Chef Ron responded very quickly to my thumbtack inquiry with a customized menu that included all that I asked for. He was patient with my doing my due diligence and checking with other caterers. What I found ultimately was that Chef Ron's menu was far superior. It was fully customized for me. The others that I checked with gave a list of things that they serve and then allowed you to pick and choose. Nothing really suited my needs. His pricing was significantly less. He also did not nickle and dime me. When there was a discrepancy in our figures, we worked it out quickly and without any problems. I was able to get a wide variety of food, and there was ample amount available. The food was truly some of the best vegetarian food I have had. It was just awesome!!! I think it helped the many skeptical meat eaters see that vegetarians can have fun too. LOL. Many were very surprised at how good it was. I heard quite a few grumblings pre wedding and nothing but praises post wedding. The only complaint I would have was that we did not really discuss the flow of events before hand. This was my fault. Make sure that you discuss when the main food should be served if you are on a time schedule. Please understand that we did have plenty of appetizers and things to eat as soon as he arrived, so it was not a problem and the food was fresh. This was a pure lack of communication on my end. As one can imagine, having a reception outdoors at a location without electricity, can be complicated, but Chef Ron was adaptable and able to work with the conditions. He came up with solutions to the problems that came up very quickly and easily. Once again, he was very adaptable. I could only imagine what he could do with all the bare necessities available in a real kitchen. I would definitely recommend Chef Ron to anyone. His skills are amazing.

The most amazing desert bar ever and the bride is gluten free and she made special just for her (not just cake we ordered but of each desert). We tried many bakers for gluten free products and she was by far the best! She also did the bridal shower deserts and they were likewise remarkable! You MUST hire Maria !!! Photos will follow when we get from photographer !!!

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.

I am a consumer of the food that this individual prepairs on a regular basis because he cooks for our church for several events and invites groups at a time to his home to simply cook for us and share his hospitality along with great food. I have attended a wedding that he catered and it was displayed beautifully and was absolutly scrumptious. I would defenantly reccomend his service.

Paul is an amazingly talented chef who is my go-to for all of my culinary needs. His dishes are not only delicious, but absolutely beautiful! From platters and lunches at my spa to private dining events, there's no one I trust more to deliver the absolute best. He exceeds my and my clients' expectations time and time again. Whatever your event, if you hire Paul, you won't have any worries!
