Chef Tamara and her assistant Debbie were amazing! The appetizers, dinner and desserts were delicious, she even made sure there were plenty of options for our vegan/vegetarian guests. Every item and platter was artfully presented. They took care of every detail of set-up, serving and clean-up so I was free to enjoy the evening. They also brought containers and placed leftovers in the frig which we enjoyed the next day! I would highly recommend The Island Chef for any event you are planning and will absolutely call her the next time I am planning an event.

I gave this company this rating because it is a first class event provider. The staff truly made sure our guests were well served during the appetizers both serving the guests and making sure the table appetizer were always full. They did the menu from appetizer to main course and the food was delicious they handled serving dinner for the guest without a hitch and we had over 60 guests. The bartender was fantastic she made everyone feel at home and she even knew some of the guests names by the end of the night. And then they cleaned up and I mean they really cleaned up making our after party cleanup much easier. I highly recommend this company.

Emerald Catering was phenomenal. I had a reception in which 2 days before, the beverage vendor had to cancel. I had a vision of specialty drinks in which Laura and her team brought to life. Everyone loved the food: Prime Beef Sliders, Mimosa Salad, Gourmet Sandwiches, Deviled Eggs (love the garlic flare), along with condiments which were beautifully arranged. I would highly recommend Emerald Catering. They are my go to.

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 have had the pleasure of working with Garry and GSushi for many years. Whether it’s his three burner omelette stations, the outstanding/full-service lunch and dinner catering menus or or his tail-gates at Tampa Bay Buccaneer football games - His professionalism and exceptional food/service is second to none. Thank you Garry!
