As this was our first go-around without our mother who ran the best Christmas kitchen ever, we decided to look into catering which then led us to the "private chef" concept offered by Jeffrey Sternberg who owns and operates Rosemary and Thyme Catering. Jeffrey was one of 3 caterers who offered their services through Thumbtack, and right from his online presence, we knew that Jeffrey would be the one who would come through on the home-cooked feel we were seeking. One phone call led to an invitation to his home where we were regaled with samples of his work ... now that is service for you! Planning out the meals was a collaborative effort where we told Jeffrey about all our traditional fare over the 3-day feast with Jeffrey being most accommodating to our habitual dishes but all the while making recommendations here and there which we gladly accepted ... it was a very easy and enjoyable process. Everything was delicious, truly surpassing our expectations. There were even several batches of shortbread made up for our inspection before choosing the version that best matched the type of shortbread we were accustomed to. The cauliflower and celery casseroles were actually better than we had ever made ourselves and the filet roast of beef for the day after Christmas was without a doubt the best we'd ever tasted. If there was any negative to be found, it was simply in that there was way more food prepared for us than we could ever expect to eat ... we froze the leftovers and are still enjoying the odd Jeffrey meal ... talk about getting excellent value for your money! The only exception to the quantity was the gravy that only lasted the one meal of Christmas dinner. And Jeffrey also surprised us with plenty of extras like a 4th appetizer that we had not ordered, dips that we had not ordered for the appetizers, and mayo and mustard spreads for our sandwiches, and the killer was an extra turkey roasted in the oven in case we did not end up being fond of the grilled turkey that he recommended. The one hitch was that the re-heating instructions did not specify "convection" or take into account that all six dishes were to be reheated in the oven simultaneously, so the food was not ready when we were led to believe it would be, but it was well worth the wait in the end because everything was outstanding. Service, service, service ... that is what Jeffrey is all about ... and he really knows what he's doing ... you can just relax or else spend the time you save in the kitchen fretting over more interesting Christmas activities ... Thanks so very much to you Jeffrey ... you saved the Holidays for us ... the best to you and your family in 2016. Lorri H. Jan 07/16
Overall, the food and service were FABULOUS! Our wedding was Sunday, April 10th. Matt was there early. Staff was very polite and helpful with requests to even feed our dog that was a part of the wedding. Although the wedding party didn't get to eat appetizers that had been set aside just for us, because a staff member accidentally gave them out to the guests, Lol , obviously it was FANTASTIC food! My guests were very happy & that meant everything. Matt was extremely upset, but managed to mk sure we had something to eat til dinner was served. The Flavored Fork is just that. Truly fantastic flavor. The applewood smoked pork was very tender, cabernet reduction was a great addition, and chicken marsala was extremely juicy. My guests had only wonderful things to say about the whole experience. I would reccommend and hire him again. Ana & Jim Mehalyak
Chef Tim was fantastic. His preparation and presentation was fabulous. He was outgoing and very attentive and no detail was overlooked. His staff and himself did a fabulous job, I had nothing to clean at the end of the night and nothing to worry about during the night. Chef thinks of everything. All of his appetizers were delicious and am still being complimented on the food. His beef skewers are highly recommended. My only negative was a few of the dinner selections I made were slightly bland. I will definitely use him again and recommend him and all 35 of my guests said how terrific the evening was because of Chef and his staff.
The JKL caterers showed up a little early, which was great. They set everything up quickly, and were very friendly. There was plenty of food, and it was delicious! We were very happy with JKL, and we look forward to having them cater our future events.
Gwen is such a kind lovely lady and her food is incredible. The attention to detail, presentation and flavor was so wonderful, people had nothing but wonderful things to say about the delicious appetizers that she made for my small backyard wedding. The best touch was the deviled eggs that she dyed to match my wedding colors!!
I recently hired Chef Laura to do a cocktail party for 100 people in April 2015 . She and her staff were AMAZING! I priced several caterers for my event and her services and prices couldn't be beat. When she works your event you can really tell she has passion for what she does and her food tastes amazing. I would defiantly hire her again because she brings all professionalism without the attitude most caterers have. It was a pleasure working with her.
We hired Mr. G's catering for a 50th anniversary dinner (drop off) for 11 people. He was prompt in responding and sent a detailed proposal, which he was happy to make adjustments to. At the dinner he set up the food in an attractive way, and when the dinner was over, he came back and removed everything. The food itself was delicious and well prepared. His price was very reasonable and his service was excellent. I would highly recommend him for catering a dinner.
Cafe Delish and Renee was absolutely Amazing! I would use her again for any event that I have - PLUS recommend her to any of my friends, family and colleagues. Café Delish was very easy to work with, had a spectacular presentation, and "delish-ish" food! I called up with short notice (probably not recommended!), and Renee was easy going, was able to talk to me and know what I wanted and to create exactly what was need to make my Dad's 70th surprise party exactly as I had envisioned - including a 70 in an ice sculpture! How many caterers can do that for you in the last minute?! Her prices were very reasonable. She was right on time, and picked up to make everything very easy for me. Everyone raved about the food and the presentation (and I got the credit!). Referrals for Renee will be coming! I will have to share pictures when I download them from my real camera! Many thanks to a job over what was expected!
2 thumbs up for Lori Rizzo Events!!! You were truly amazing in bringing the most scrumptious dinner platters to our daughter's wedding reception!!! Thank you for your quick email responses and fabulous ideas!!! You are the best and will be recommended to my friends & family.
Let me start by saying that this was a last-minute plan that I made the day before Valentine's Day. I made a request through Thumbtack and in a very short time Chef Ricardo contacted me to confirm he was available and provided his menu and price. I called him and he went through in more detail his menu and suggestions based on our food preference. He has a lot of menu offerings by the way in varied cuisines. I could tell that he was friendly and professional just by talking to him. Meeting him in person confirmed my assumptions. He was an absolute pleasure to have in our home. He did a really fun cooking lesson with us while he was prepping the meal. He started by making fresh mango margaritas which he served at the beginning and then he showed us how to make the appetizer, entree and dessert, and we had some 'hands on' too with making crepes. He prepped our dining table and served our meal. The food was beautifully plated and most importantly it was delicious! While we ate, Chef cleaned up our kitchen and dishes. We will definitely use him again for special occasions and would highly recommend him. Thanks Chef for making this Valentines one of the most special ever!
Sajays Catering made my event the talk of the work place. The food was delicious! The fried Mac and cheese balls were amazing! The customer service is outstanding the chef has a real passion for his work. Will be using this catering company again in the near future. Thanks again Chef James
Massimiliano's did was wonderful job catering my party. He even adjusted his menu to accommodate younger guests. We were truly impressed with the quality and taste of the food and will certainly be using them again in the future! Highly recommend! Cannot beat the value
I was reluctant to have a work lunch catered for 30 people. So many different lunch preferences but the uniqueness of their smoker sealed the deal. The food was outstanding. These 2 guys have everything covered from "A to Z". My fellow employees still talked about it the next day! Highly recommended, especially the beef brisket!
We were not really sure what to expect because no one knew this company and there weren't a ton of reviews but they came ready to impress! The food was excellent, delivery was early, presentation was flawless and customer service was amazing. We will definitely be working with Carefree Catering again, everyone agreed they were awesome :)
Joe was great to work with. He was on top of everything from start to finish. He was able to put the entire party together from the DJ, caterer, invites, photographer, decor, party favors, furniture, etc... I would highly recommend for any type of party.
I love her food!!! I recently attended an event she catered and also a few other events she has catered in the past and I must say that she has a true passion for what she does. Her food is amazingly delicious that it will leave your taste buds satisfied and wanting more. She is very professional and has a great personality. She is by far the best in my books. I highly recommend her services. Anyone asks me if I know of any good caterers, she is the only one I recommend. I look forward to attending more events she caters and most definitely will be requesting her services for my next event. Elouaze Alexis Catering rocks!!!!!
Michael was an absolute joy to work with. He put together a buffet menu for our wedding of 50 people effortlessly. Throughout the entire process everyone was professional, knowledgeable, understanding, patient and kind. The food was delivered on time and at the perfect temperature. The food was outstanding! I will definitely will be calling these guys again for other events.
We have engaged Cordon Bleu Catering for two New Year's Eve events, and one Brunch. The principals of Cordon Bleu are focused, flexible, to meet individual event needs, and highly professional with service, presentation, and accessories to presentation. We have just completed our second New Year's Eve event with Cordon Bleu preparing and serving for 115 people. From appetizers to dinner and a full breakfast, food, presentation, and service was nothing less than perfect.
