FABULOUS!!!!! We have tried some of the finest restaurants in Miami for our holiday lunches and they have not worked out so well. I just can't say enough about how good the food was and how happy the staff was. Thank you so much.

As this was our first go-around without our mother who ran the best Christmas kitchen ever, we decided to look into catering which then led us to the "private chef" concept offered by Jeffrey Sternberg who owns and operates Rosemary and Thyme Catering. Jeffrey was one of 3 caterers who offered their services through Thumbtack, and right from his online presence, we knew that Jeffrey would be the one who would come through on the home-cooked feel we were seeking. One phone call led to an invitation to his home where we were regaled with samples of his work ... now that is service for you! Planning out the meals was a collaborative effort where we told Jeffrey about all our traditional fare over the 3-day feast with Jeffrey being most accommodating to our habitual dishes but all the while making recommendations here and there which we gladly accepted ... it was a very easy and enjoyable process. Everything was delicious, truly surpassing our expectations. There were even several batches of shortbread made up for our inspection before choosing the version that best matched the type of shortbread we were accustomed to. The cauliflower and celery casseroles were actually better than we had ever made ourselves and the filet roast of beef for the day after Christmas was without a doubt the best we'd ever tasted. If there was any negative to be found, it was simply in that there was way more food prepared for us than we could ever expect to eat ... we froze the leftovers and are still enjoying the odd Jeffrey meal ... talk about getting excellent value for your money! The only exception to the quantity was the gravy that only lasted the one meal of Christmas dinner. And Jeffrey also surprised us with plenty of extras like a 4th appetizer that we had not ordered, dips that we had not ordered for the appetizers, and mayo and mustard spreads for our sandwiches, and the killer was an extra turkey roasted in the oven in case we did not end up being fond of the grilled turkey that he recommended. The one hitch was that the re-heating instructions did not specify "convection" or take into account that all six dishes were to be reheated in the oven simultaneously, so the food was not ready when we were led to believe it would be, but it was well worth the wait in the end because everything was outstanding. Service, service, service ... that is what Jeffrey is all about ... and he really knows what he's doing ... you can just relax or else spend the time you save in the kitchen fretting over more interesting Christmas activities ... Thanks so very much to you Jeffrey ... you saved the Holidays for us ... the best to you and your family in 2016. Lorri H. Jan 07/16

Chef Tim was fantastic. His preparation and presentation was fabulous. He was outgoing and very attentive and no detail was overlooked. His staff and himself did a fabulous job, I had nothing to clean at the end of the night and nothing to worry about during the night. Chef thinks of everything. All of his appetizers were delicious and am still being complimented on the food. His beef skewers are highly recommended. My only negative was a few of the dinner selections I made were slightly bland. I will definitely use him again and recommend him and all 35 of my guests said how terrific the evening was because of Chef and his staff.

We Knew that Chef Tim would be a perfect fit for us from ours first meeting, he arrived at our home ant took notes as we discussed the style of food. On the day of our wedding he came prepared and organized and most importantly came with a great attitude. He was accompanied with a great staff that work together. Each meal was well prepared, served and delicious. Every one worked clean and efficient manner. They keep the kitchen nice and neat.

Chef Levita is a class act! He recently catered a small (16 people) corporate event for us and we were very pleased! He was professional, organized and had a menu prepared for us that was out of this world. His food was fresh and the presentation was awesome. He was extremely nice and my group enjoyed all of the personal touches that he brought to the table for us. I look forward to using his services on a regular basis now. An all around fantastic job was done by Chef Levita and his assistant Chef Jenny!!! Average price for an above average job!! So nice to see someone that takes pride in their work...it truly showed!!!

Chef Levita did a wonderful job catering my mother's 90th anniversary celebration for 15 people. The food was wonderful and the presentation lovely. He helped me make some very wise choices for my group which I also appreciated. These included summer rolls, sushi, sliced tenderloin, Casear salad, haricots vertes with garlic roasted potatoes and a wonderful, freshly-baked chocolate cake. He and his assistant Carlos made my gathering a great success.

I have hired Sue as both my family's personal chef, and as the caterer for several events that I organised in the community where I live. Sue truly cares about her clients and works diligently to meet their needs. I particularly like her interest in preparing healthy meals that taste amazing! Sue has a warm and caring personality, and it is always a pleasure to have her in my home. She even taught my family how to make sushi rolls! Sue is a true professional, and every event was a huge success due to the delicious dishes she prepared. Everyone raved about the food, and many in attendance have since hired her for their events. I highly recommend Sue Merkle. She is an incredible chef!

I used Lori's catering services for a small get together and birthday party for about 30 people. Since I was a novice at party giving, Lori was very good about checking in with me along the way and making suggestions about both the menu and the setup. We had more than enough food which had been a particular worry of mine since I could not picture amounts. The party was for noon on a Sunday and I elected to do sort of a blend between a brunch and a lunch. In particular, the strata, mango salad and berry fruit salad were the most popular and I found that the dressings, sauces and spreads that accompanied the food were what added to the uniqueness of the ham, rolls and other salads. Everything was tasty and fresh. The delivery person was on time and helpful with food placement as it was a buffet style. The dishes were all set to go on platters and we supplied the serving utensils and beverages. I would certainly recommend Lori for whatever occasion you might need these services.

Cafe Delish and Renee was absolutely Amazing! I would use her again for any event that I have - PLUS recommend her to any of my friends, family and colleagues. Café Delish was very easy to work with, had a spectacular presentation, and "delish-ish" food! I called up with short notice (probably not recommended!), and Renee was easy going, was able to talk to me and know what I wanted and to create exactly what was need to make my Dad's 70th surprise party exactly as I had envisioned - including a 70 in an ice sculpture! How many caterers can do that for you in the last minute?! Her prices were very reasonable. She was right on time, and picked up to make everything very easy for me. Everyone raved about the food and the presentation (and I got the credit!). Referrals for Renee will be coming! I will have to share pictures when I download them from my real camera! Many thanks to a job over what was expected!

Chef Zsolt prepared an amazing Mother's Day brunch for 20 in my home. Despite me giving him only a week's notice he patiently worked with us to prepare a menu that was perfect for our tastes. He arrived as promised in the morning and made himself at home in our kitchen. He prepared the brunch and was ready on schedule at 10:30 as requested. Everything was delicious. Our favorites were the omelets made to order, French toast, and. Hungarian style beef stew. My family is from the Caribbean and is used to very well seasoned meats so I was a little skeptical about the meat, but at the end of the afternoon we were all ranting and raving over everything, especially the beef! As if it couldn't get any better he cleaned up the kitchen! Before we knew it we had a clean kitchen and he was all packed up and leaving. He gave us a price for his service plus the food bill which he estimated based on the menu. The actual bill was just under his estimate and we had PLENTY of food for everyone and even some leftovers! We were so happy that we asked him right away to please put on his calendar for next Mother's Day.

We hired Chef Zsolt over a year ago and we couldn't be happier! He prepares fresh meals for us every week custom to our liking. He is very creative and uses lots of different flavors, and has introduced us to many new dishes. When we tell people that we have a Chef prepare our food they always ask isn't that expensive? Once we explain that Chef Zsolt does all the shopping, cooking, cleaning, and delivers it right to our door, we are actually saving money. And we are eating much healthier since we started using his service. We have told all our family and friends about him, and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to hire a professional Chef.

Chef Zsolt is a pleasure....so easy to work with and the food was superb. The menu planning process was simple and even when we had a last minute allergy he was able to accommodate. I had family in town for the weekend and wanted to spend time enjoying rather than cooking and cleaning up afterwards....Chef Zsolt took care of everything and I would certainly recommend that you hire him for any events you are planning.

Another 5 star review for Actualite Event and Design staff. We got married just a couple weeks ago, and this is one of the first reviews I was anxious to write when we got back from our honeymoon. My mom was the one who insisted on having a coordinator for the last few weeks before the big day, and I thought it was something silly and unnecessary. Boy was I wrong! It was SO great having Fabienne to call on - from having her pick things up, drop things off, help with scheduling, contact vendors, deal with mishaps, Fabienne from Actualite Event & Design was there whenever we needed her. She was always calm, cool, and collected - never made me feel anxious or worried, was always on my side when it came to dealing with vendors, and truly knew exactly what she was doing. Our small wedding was pretty much perfect, and I really do not think it would have been that way without her and her assistant. Plus, she contributed significantly to my peace of mind for the entire month before the wedding. I would recommend Actualite Event & Design without hesitation!

I highly recommend Actualite Event and Design because Planning a wedding can be stressful and an overwhelming task for anyone, a lot of things needs to be done, right from calling your wedding photographer to the last ceremony of the wedding, everything is very important. You can get very exhausted if things aren’t done in a systematic way and in a proper order. Actualite Event and Design is top-notch planner and I am incredibly lucky to have had hire them. the staff made me feel as though they have everything 100% under control.

I would use Actualite Event and Design again, she was a pleasure to work with and her service was excellent!

Elouaze came and rescued my party with her outstanding food. I have been looking for a catering company for a while and was always disappointed with the tasting or just the professionalism of the people. I heard of Elouaze from a co-worker who she catered for, and remember tasting her food at my co-workers party. when I met her she was outgoing, professional, on time, and her rates were great. After we talked and I gave her an example of the food I wanted she was able to provide me a sample of her cooking a few days later and it was delicious. So far she has catered 2 parties for me, one for a family member and I've recommended her to all my friends and co-workers. Trust me you wont be disappointed.

I was hosting an International conference for families. I found Chef Elouaze we traded emails and a few phone calls. From the moment I was introduced to her I felt a connection. She is warm, easy to work with, and understood what I wanted. She stayed in contact with me before and after the event to make sure we were satisfied. I really appreciate the fantastic customer service with Chef Elouaze. The food was amazing as well and the families all seem to love it. I was over a 1,000 miles away when I planned the catering so there was a lot of pressure to have faith in the person catering. Chef Elouaze went above and beyond, she truly cares about you and her business!
