Tamera and her staff came to my home and prepared and cooked and served exquisite fresh food all night. Nothing like plain catering with chaffing dishes, etc. Outstanding menu. Tons of compliments. Also tended bar. This was an outstanding experience. The planning to prepare a custom menu was quick and easy -Tamera personally made it all flow perfectly.

On the 19th of June, 2015, my youngest son Alexander got married to Shelly, and we had the fortune to have Once Upon An Even of Tampa Bay, as our caterers. Wow, there are no words to describe the service they provided. Every thing was done very professionally,with taste and class. The servers were very friendly and went out of their way to make sure that everybody was satisfied. Then the food came and it was out of this world ! We feel very fortunate to have found Sandy, and Once Upon An Event of Tampa Bay ! They are going to be our caterers for any and every activity that comes along. THEY ARE THE BEST ! Zulma M.

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)

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.
