Antwan catered a holiday party at my house with 70 guests. He arrived on time with 2 helpers and commenced preparing the food. He provided about 10 different offerings that were presented to the guests in stages. I didn't get to taste everything because I was busy mingling with my guests but most of the comments on the food were favorable. I did find the beef in the skewers to be tough so that was disappointing. Antwan and his assistants were very professional and pleasant to work with. Since this was my first time having an event catered I should have been more specific about presentation. He used all plastic tableware and aluminum chafing dish which he told me he would do. However, once here I should have had him use some of my glass and or silver serving pieces. I would have liked a more elegant presentation. The next time I think I would prefer most of the items precooked and just warmed up here instead of having them busy preparing food all evening in my kitchen. All in all Antwan did a great job for us and I really appreciated his culinary expertise!

Tamara was a very friendly, and professional. She arrived on time for our event, and helped us set up the food quickly, and efficiently. Tamara was kind enough to drive an hour to cater our event. The food was amazing, and all the residents that attended our event were extremely satisfied with the recipes and the presentation. We will definitely be in contact with Tamara for future events here at Harrison Ranch. Thank You!

Vivian catered our wedding and her food was amazing! We loved that she sat down with us and let us customize our own menu. And she was able to work with our budget to provide us with a beautifully catered event. We highly recommend her for your next event!

Cheryl sets the bar wayyy to high for private chefs. Once you have had a private chef experience with her, you will never invite a different chef into your home or private event. From the moment I hired Cheryl for a surprise couple's dinner over Labor Day Weekend, she made it very clear that she aimed to provide a "blow you away" experience. First she designed the three course menu. I told her what I had in mind (lighter dinner - fish and seafood) and she instantly started providing her ideas with pictures of different dishes, different types of fish, sauces, presentation styles, etc. We agreed on a shrimp polenta cake w romesco sauce topped w sauteed carrots appetizer, an atlantic cod on a bed of smashed potatoes with olive and mushrooms, and a creme brulee. Our friends that we surprised with the meal both said it was one of the best meals they had ever had. We agreed. Leading up to the day of the event, Cheryl covered all the details. Since we were staying at a resort, she asked about everything from the type of dishes available to whether she should bring a tablecloth. She made wine recommendations, and even brought us a bottle for the dinner. The final presentation was perfect. Cheryl connected immediately with our group and was ready to impress - she got right to work when she arrived, but not after exchanging pleasantries and making sure that she knew her audience. All in all, Cheryl provides white glove customer service, has the most genuinely friendly and professional personality and is awesome to work with. She impresses from the moment you say YES, and even before that. Her cooking is delicious. It was a gourmet meal that we would have paid much, much, much more for at a reataurant, but she brought it to the comfort of our home (hotel). The presentation of the food was impressive, and everything was served with so much love. Cheryl takes great pride in what she does. We look forward to making Cheryl's cooking a part of our yearly tradition. I would never consider using anyone else. You will not be disappointed with Cheryl. Dont look any further - you have found your private chef for life. (I NORMALLY AM VERY LAZY ABOUT WRITING REVIEWS, BUT CHERYL PROVIDED SUCH AN IMPRESSIVE EXPERIENCE THAT I WOULD NOT FEEL GOOD NOT WRITING ONE)

Lisi was so easy to work with. She knew the area, made suggestions improve our event, and was one heck of a cook! I didn't have to do anything -- just enjoyed the food and the great service.

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.

Janet did an event in my home for about 30 people. She was very professional and eased my mind on menu and presentation. The appetizers, entre and desserts were absolutely amazing. We were so please with the day. I would recommend her in a heartbeat. Cost was very reasonable for all she handled..

Everything was delicious and well prepared for a bridal shower we put on for our future sister in law. We couldn’t have asked for a better selection of food. I would recommend Rebecca to cater any event you are planning. Rebecca was very easy to work with.

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.

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.

Once again we have had a great experience with Chica's catering. We just had them cater our 3rd party and as with our 2 previous parties, Chica's food and service was impeccable. We order a variety of menu items, set them on a table and our friends and their kids devour all of it. We actually had to make a second run back to Chica's to get more because it was so good! Try dining in also, our family enjoys going anytime but Taco Tuesdays are a good deal with bogo tacos and the margaritas are killer too!!! Thanks Chica's!!!!
