  1. #1 Orlando's Gourmet Catering

    (7 reviews)

    CJ J.

    We wanted to do something special to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary. We tossed around a few ideas, but the thought of going to a loud and crowded restaurant was not appealing to my folks. We finally decided to bring the restaurant to them. On WEDNESDAY, we put out a request for a caterer for SATURDAY! Carolyn to the rescue! I was a little apprehensive at first, because she was coming from Sarasota and we were in Riverview, but she didn't seem to have any problem with it. She sent me a suggested menu on Friday that was spot on, and we finalized the details. What an elegant evening! We set the tables, and Carolyn took it from there. We were able to enjoy our time with family, without someone having to be in the kitchen. It was nice for everyone to be able to sit down and be served a delicious meal. The best part is, when dinner was over, the dishes were done and everything was put away. We never leave my mom's kitchen looking like that after a family dinner! Everyone raved about the food, it was absolutely fabulous! It cost a pretty penny, but because Carolyn was coming to my rescue in the 11th hour, it was worth the extra cost. If you actually had time to plan and prepare, the cost would be reasonable, I'm sure. I highly recommend Carolyn Orlando and her catering. Fantastic food, served by a pleasant, professional team that obviously puts a lot of love and care into their product.

  2. #2 Lisi Crane Catering

    (12 reviews)

    Jan N.

    I used Lisi Crane for a wedding on April 30, 2016 and don't know where to begin with reviews! Lisi is so delightful, calm and knowledgeable. We had the wedding dinner at our home and Lisi suggested a menu, met us at the rental company and knew exactly what we needed, told me where I could cut my expenses and kept me relatively calm thru the entire process. Her food was MAGNIFICENT! Everything she prepared was delicious and had rave comments from our guests. Her food is all CLEAN and had such magnificent flavor. Lisi honestly did the work of several people. Her prices are very good and I cannot say enough about her. I will also use Lisi for small dinner parties where she just delivers the food and also, some meals for my husband and me. I simply cannot say enough good about Lisi and all that she offers.

    Working with Jordan and his staff - Pat the bartender and Chef John was an awesome experience! We will never do another party or event in our home that requires catering that does not include Gordon's Gourmet. The food was excellent! And the personal service Pat and Chef John provided exceeded our expectations and thrilled our guests! Thank you again Jordan for another great time! Lynn & Johnnie Woods

    He bartended my wedding and he was the best! So nice and funny he made my wedding a great event. I couldn't have picked a better bartender. If I could give him more then 5 stars I would! I'm giving his card to everyone I know. By the end of the wedding I felt like he was a friend. His drinks were creative and delicious and I would most definitely use him again.

  8. #8 Social Foods

    (3 reviews)

    Marc C.

    Wendy and Kirk did a fabulous job for our daughter's college graduation party. The planning was easy and fun, Wendy is very accommodating and eager to please. The menu was perfect for our event and my goodness her food is delicious. They set up the trays in a shelter on the beach, which might not have been the ideal setting, but she made it look easy. Everything stayed tasty until the very end. I highly recommend Social Foods for your event.
