My experience with Gotta Have It was exceptional from beginning to end. Chef Marra gave me exactly what I asked for, which was Panamanian cuisine. The food was great and my guests were impressed. The staff provided for service were professional and on point. Chef Marra worked with me on every level during this process. I would definitely work with this catering company again and I also recommend them to anyone.
Nikki is an excellent chef - food was delicious. She was on time and was very personable! The young men she brought with her were so nice! I had asked for her to prepare extra homemade croutons for me to have the next day and though she said of course I suspect in the haste to leave she forgot them. ( By the way they were great!) The only comment I would make in using a chef versus my regular caterers is that Nikki and her team planned to leave while we were eating dessert. In doing so I would have been left to clean all those dishes ( 10 seated guests) and wine glasses myself. She said that was the way she always did things. None of my caterers have ever done that -- that is part of what you are paying for ($700+) to enjoy your evening and have no work to do ! Just being hostess is enough getting the house and flowers and table set! Nikki knew we had 50 people arriving post dinner for an after party and needed the dinner dishes all pulled and cleaned - was very disappointed that we had to discuss that at the last minute! I had hired a separate bartender for the glasses to be taken care at the post party. I expected her to not do any of those dishes. I did ask her to place trays of desserts I had prepared on the "cleaned off" dining table when they finished. ( I paid them a handsome tip for doing this) Also - I have never had a caterer use the dishwasher for my dishes - I have always found them hand washed and stacked in kitchen. Nikki's team loaded my dishwashers (2) with the hand painted china and sterling flatware. I should have explained that is not done - my mistake, I just haven't had to before. She is an EXCELLENT CHEF! Services are not as "easy" on the host and her familiarity with things like the china and silver should be discussed before hand. Be very specific about every detail on how you see the evening going - write it up so you both know. We had Sea Bass and It Was Amazing!
John is a wonderful chef! His food was amazing. We have an office of 20-25 people and he catered for us 1x per week. He was always on time and food was well prepared and never any issues. We would recommend him highly!
The food chef Bree and her assistant made was absolutely outstanding. They were prompt, professional, and a joy to have in our home. They made a very special birthday dinner for just my husband and me in our home. She worked with us on the menu and really cared that we were fully satisfied. Our meal was bacon wrapped asparagus, an amazing rib eye steak, crab mac and cheese, and chocolate ale cake. It was exactly what we wanted because my carnivore of a husband wants meat or beer in just about every course! She picked up on that and helped arrange a perfect and indulgent dinner. She introduced each course and told us a bit about how she prepared it. It was a gorgeous, intimate, delicious, and fun meal and experience. I can confidently and strongly recommend Chef Bree and Good Fork Catering. Thank you again, chef!!
Wow, where do I start. First of all, I chose Adilah's Catering out of 4 other possible caterers. I chose her initially because she listened and understood what my goal was and how to accomplish that goal. My goal was to surprise my wife with a special dinner. She assisted me with locating a place for us to stay that had a full kitchen. She suggested two different places. One of medium cost and one of a higher cost. This showed me that she had great knowledge of the area and offered me, the client, the choice of how much I wanted to spend in a hotel. Then she suggested certain things for the menu that evening. However, she was never pushy and also allowed space for me to alter from the set packages. Lastly, the night was INCREDIBLE!!!! The food was cooked to PERFECTION and served hot! We could tell that all the food was fresh. Her husband was our server and was extremely polite and professional. I can not stress enough that the food and the service was unbelievable. As a former GA state games gold medalist (boxing) and a retired professional heavyweight boxer, I've had the opportunity to eat the foods of some of the finest restaurants and prepared by some of the world's top chefs. I can honestly say, that Chef Adilah is second to none of them!!!! You would be cheating yourself if you did not hire this lady for any of your catering needs. She was incredible!!!!
I surprised my wife on her 40th B-Day with a private chef to cook dinner for the family. Kelsey was GREAT, she was warm, kind and professional every step of the way. The food was fantastic too. We started with a cheese and charcuterie plate, and then a duck salad with organic greens, both were delicious.The main course was halibut with a citrus sauce and asparagus, it was perfectly cooked. The dessert was her signature creme brulee and it was outstanding. I'd highly recommend Kelsey to anyone needing a private chef for a special occasion.
Alison did an exceptional job from start to finish. She was very professional and yet personable and easy to work with. The food was excellent and she carefully chose options that worked with our needs for vegetarian and gluten free as well as regular diets. From pre-planning to cleanup, she did a fantastic job! I highly recommend her!
I hired Chef Lou to prepare dinner for my birthday bash and my experience was nothing less than fantastic! Not only was he professional, courteous, personable, and on time the food he prepared was delicious. Chef Lou listened to my ideas and customized a menu for my guest and I. I highly recommend him if you're in the Atlanta area.
Chef Heather prepared an excellent Christmas dinner for our family of 14. The meal was full of fresh ingredients, delicious flavors and spice. Chef Heather walked us through the simple re-heating instructions and the flavors were still bold and vibrant! We had enough food for lunch the next day too (generous portions). And she made selecting our menu so easy -- she gave me a list of choices and it was easy to pick and choose. I only wish I lived in Atlanta and could have Chef Heather prepare food for our family regularly!
I thoroughly enjoyed working with The East-West Chef! The food was superb, and is of the highest quality and caliber. Delicious! In my extensive experience with catering companies as a nonprofit executive, I experienced nothing but professionalism, tact, expedience and timeliness. I would highly recommend!
Great experience for me and my daughter John is passionate about showing you how to cook and actually have you doing most of the work which is the goal. He explained different ways to create a meal with the entree and created a whole new experience for me with experimenting different foods & tastes. I am in love with the Salmon and Quinoa/spinach salad!!!!
I hired PCF Creations for two 1-month periods to prepare Whole30 compliant meals for my wife and me. Chef Josue came like clockwork every Monday to prepare meals for the entire week. He was very clean, friendly, and gentle. His cooking is precise; flavors are gently pronounced and create harmony with subtones and nuances. I am pretty good in the kitchen myself so I needed this execution to be impressive, despite the somewhat limited ingredients allowed (again, whole30 program, which we also narrowed down a lot based on our likings). Chef Josue was very clean and fast. He also made the grocery shopping for us in a very effective way. I would recommend his services to anyone looking to improve diet or simply for a celebration meal. Very happy.
Excellent presentation of his craft; the " Tapas Tasting" event was very professional and the food was quite tasteful and heart healthy; he is an excellent cook; I'm sorry I did not think to photograph the entire presentation (see beef and pork entrée presentations below). Chef Anthony James put his best foot forward to earn our business; we were quite at ease with his hospitality and left stuffed. Thanks Chef Anthony James of Distinguished Palate for an afternoon well worth the trip. Yes, of course, we've hired him!! Excellent experience!!!
I have two words to say.. "Impeccable Service!" In-Joy catering not only have the best service, but they also serve amazing food!! The Chef is one to admire due to her personality & beautiful smile..she works with her clients and will do everything she can to make sure she's giving 110%. I would definitely hire for any event I host. 😊
I found out about chef Nichole through a coworker of mines. And let me tell you, her meals have changed my life. I am now on the right path to healthy eating. She cooks two meals a day for me and stores them in these awesome containers. Her meal prep prices are very reasonable. If I could give her ten stars I would! Thanks again chef Nichole.
Chef JRod catered one of my events hosting around 30 ppl. His selection options and process was professional and sooo on point. I loved the food but my guests raved about the food more than I did! The presentation was beautiful and he added an extra touch of elegance to my event that I could've not even imagine. I look forward to working with him again. Keep up the great work!
Nelli G prepares delicious food that is pleasing to the eye. She was professional, prompt, and reliable. She was also present during the event, and responsive to any guest concerns (e.g. Is there pork in the dish?). Our guests raved about the dinner and the prices were fair. Great service, great product, great price.
