Chef Antwan Coleman did a fabulous job catering my company's Christmas Luncheon. There were nothing but positive compliments, and all of our employees left with a full belly. The food was delicious, and the Chef made sure there was plenty to go around. I would definitely recommend Chef Antwan for your catering needs, and we will definitely be using him for our future events. Thank you!

We hired Vivian for our 50th anniversary party at the beach. The event lasted from Thursday night until Monday morning and involved 11 children and 16 adults. Vivian cooked three meals every day for us. Each night was a special treat from Spanish night, fish dinner night, and for the anniversary celebration, she fixed filet mignon and salmon. Everything was delicious! She was very thoughtful in catering to special needs, likes and dislikes of the guests and was well liked by the group. Because we were not at a home, she brought all the dishes, tablecloths, glasses and silverware. I would highly recommend Vivian. she is a true Personal Chef and not just a caterer.

Kathy and Jeff Paradise are a full-package for the busy full-time working bride. They handle the busy details from catering to reception rentals, setup and decor in any style you desire. We opted for a sit down table service wedding reception on Saturday, May 18, 2013 for approximately 100 guests. Kathy and Jeff offer many pleasing menu choices ranging from comfort food to many items for even the most sophisticated palate. We settled on our selections and details that suited our style wedding reception. The venue we selected for our wedding reception provided very little lead time to set-up other than the morning of the wedding. This problem was easily solved by Kathy and her team who set up all the tables, chairs, and decor. This leaves the bride with nothing to worry about and allowed me to focus on getting ready for the wedding. The details were impressive. Guests enjoyed the h'orderves and happy hour while waiting for the bride and groom to arrive. The appetizer table had a beautiful presentation, and when we arrived we had our own appetizer platter ready our head table. Our guests had their choice of Lasagna with Meatballs, or Chicken Picatta. The Caesar salad was made with a delicious homemade dressing. A candy & coffee station was set up for guests to enjoy after dinner. Everything Kathy and Jeff make is from scratch and the layers of flavor in everything you taste is amazing. It is evident that cooking is something they are passionate about. Kathy has high expectations of herself and those she works with, which provides great results. Our wedding was the event everyone was talking about! We received lots of positive feedback from our guests and many inquired about having Kathy and Jeff cater their future wedding receptions. Kathy & Jeff Paradise come highly recommended for catering weddings, anniversary parties, or special events.

Our experience was amazing! Due to an unexpected loss in the family, we needed catering service with short notice. Renowned catering not only replied quickly but with a reasonable price. Laura, the owner, provided a proposed menu by the end of the day and met our every request without hesitation. On the day of the event, the set up was just as desired and the staff was friendly and knew exactly what they were doing. The food tasted amazing and was of fantastic quality. This catering company made our experience seamless, which was a blessing through this difficult time.

Chef Janet surpassed my hopes and expectations. Grilling an entire surf and turf meal for 12 including appetizers and dessert for a special family dinner at the beach Chef Janet was incredible. No refrigerator, no sink, and no easy access to running water - she was amazing. Dinner was superb! Steaks were grilled to perfection. Shrimp and scallop skewers with fresh vegetables and new potatoes with a fresh herb sauce were simply amazing!! Not only was the food delicious, Chef Janet was absolutely delightful to work with throughout our planning .... providing excellent suggestions and promptly responding to emails. Thanks to Chef Janet our evening was nothing short of FANTASTIC!! I highly recommend Cloud 9 Catering and Personal Chef Services.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Not only is the food fresh, healthy and tasty, but it's delivered right to my house. They ensure all my individual dietary requests are met. Above the Grain goes ABOVE AND BEYOND! Meals are affordable, compared to gas to the store, time to make each meal and I now have more time to spend with my family, or for work on days requiring long hours. The owner is fantastic to work with too. She is always positive, professional and meals are there rain or shine! I have felt more energized, healthy and at the weight I need to be for my personal goals, while never feeling hungry.... They feed ya!

Kippster Catering did a great job for my event. Not only did he show up on time and go out of his way to make sure all of my guests were happy, he left a clean space and even gave me a few recipes for the food he created so I can try to make them again later! I will definitely be using his services again.

I could not have been more pleasantly surprised with the convenience, quality and cost of Carrabba's catering. The manager, Cheyanne bent over backwards, for my office party, which says a lot because I am not the easiest person to please.

We used the service to cater an office meeting. Plenty of tasty food serving 65 people. Leftovers were quickly claimed. Very responsive and so easy to work with during coordination of event. We are in talks to coordinate a recurring lunch service two days per week for our team. Love this service!

Chef Deborah has catered our special occasions for over 6 years now. She is in Tampa for the winter and away for the summer. We've always been very pleased with the food and service and always happy to find out she's back in town for another season. We've hosted  intimate dinner parties as well as larger standing room only events.  We have friends who still talk about the food every time I see them. I highly recommend chef D to anyone who loves good food and wants to impress their guests.
