We were stressed about the wedding, having very little funds and family to help us plan the event. Once Upon a Caterong stood by us and helped us through every detail, offering help where they could find it. This Caterong company is more than that, they are a wonderful family that does everything in the best interest of the client. We had two separate venues for The ceremony and the reception and no one to help set up the reception. By just leaving over filled boxes of decorations and a text message to the caterer, our wedding venue was decorated just as we imagined it. Thank you so much for being our caterer. Even the venue workers stated they worked over 100 weddings but ours was one of the most smooth running with the help of this catering company.

Chef Kim and Good Enuf 2 Eat Catering prepared a fantastic surprise 50th birthday dinner for 2 for one of my closest friends. The 4 course Thai meal was absolutely wonderful far exceeding my expectations. She arrived at the agreed upon time and dinner was actually served early. Each course was incredibly well presented and Chef Kim explained the fresh ingredients of each. Everything was so aromatic and the flavors from each course happily danced on our tongues. The kitchen was thoroughly cleaned when finished and she departed with a hug leaving us to enjoy the wonderful Petit Fois. I highly recommend Chef Kim and Good Enuf 2 Eat Catering for any catering event. I look forward to her catering my next event. Thank you Chef Kim for a fantastic experience!

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.

The catering service of pasta and different of elements that go with it was provided. This is good for medium to large groups where the hosts do not have a lot of time and need someone who can take care of those needs. Customer service was very good. Presentation was excellent. All the food was cooked where applicable to meet expectations. There are things that can be worked on as a new business. For example, a salad should have all the fixings separate as some people may like some of the items but not all of them. In addition, some people are lactose intolerant to vegan and would not be able to eat cheese on the salad. The customer should be able to pick and choose which items they want for their salad. Another example, would be to have gluten-free pasta as needed due to consumers may have a gluten allergy. Overall, my experience with the food was good and very tasty.

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!!!!
