Used Gotta Have It Catering for a company picnic and Vince, Matt, and Marvin knocked it out of the park! The food was outstanding and the portions were huge. The team was very surprised when they came outside for a picnic and the food truck was set-up and waiting for them with a variety of gourmet selections. A fun time was had by all! Vince made setting up this event effortless for me. Thank you!

The Bountiful Basket was our caterer for our wedding on July 10. There is not enough that could be said about what Mike and his team did for us. They were way more than caterers. Mike handled everything: tables, tents, chairs, dinnerware, glassware for both our wedding and our rehearsal dinner. His staff was so very professional and on the ball. And the food....WOW. It was incredible evidenced by the fact that there was very little left. His mac and cheese is unique and fantastic. The shrimp and grits were fabulous and he makes fried chicken just like your grandmother. Please seriously consider The Bountiful Basket for any catering event. You will not be sorry. Thanks Mike and crew you made our day perfect.

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!

I discussed a catered dinner at my home with Sabrina but was unable to coordinate with the other couples. She was personable, quick, creative and gave me a great proposal. I truly believe we lost out by going to a restaurant instead of using Chef Bree.

I truly LOVED working with Cooking with a star Catering. A buffet style wasn't what I had originally wanted, but what I had to do for our budget. They have changed my opinion about buffet weddings forever! The food was what sold us right away at our tasting. We couldn't wait the 9 months to have the roast again it was that yummy! I have several compliments from our guests on how great the food was and was presented, and let's be honest wedding food isn't always the best. Once you go to a tasting you will understand, the food and service are way above the price you pay for. Using them felt like a steal! Kendra was so easy to work with and the communication was great. GeGee on the day of was such an angel. She was extremely attentive to myself and the groom, always making sure I had food or a drink. My husband and I ended up having seconds because I enjoyed my meal that much. You cannot go wrong with using this amazing catering company.

C-Bo's BBQ did a great job with the food at our company picnic. The food was delicious and the service provided by LaToya and Charles and their entire team was excellent. We would definitely use them for our next event and recommend them to friends.

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!!!!

Kelsey, as it turned out, did not only drop-off the meal for our dinner party, but she served as personal chef, doing much of the preparation in my home. She prepared a fantastic New Year's Eve meal for 11 of us, working with us to arrive at a wonderful menu that satisfied everyone's very individualized culinary needs and requirements. Communication with her in advance was smooth and prompt. She arrived at exactly the time she said she would, made herself comfortable in my kitchen, presented fantastic appetizers, and then served a meal that was well-prepared, beautifully presented, and absolutely delicious. In addition to her culinary skills, she has a delightful and friendly personality. She clearly enjoys what she does, and she truly exceeded our expectations.

Extremely professional, and saved us at the last minute! Antionette was a joy to work with at our church anniversary dinner. We had a caterer pull out in the final hour, and Simply Elegant came in to save the day. Plus went above and beyond to make sure we had an opportunity to taste the meal before the day of the event to make sure we could make changes if needed. Everyone was very happy with the food, and there was more than enough for everyone. We will definitely use them again for future events. Thank you Antoinette! It was a joy working with you Shannon

Daphne Woods with Function Events catered a delicious and visually appealing lunch for a last minute event (I booked 1 week prior to the event) for my client during the hectic month of December. Daphne was able to work within my budget, menu constraints and last minute changes and served delicious food - perfect for my event. Daphne is a FANTASTIC communicator and she kept me on my toes leading up to the event. Our client misplaced 2 of Daphne's red serving platters and Daphne did not charge us for our mistake and instead absorbed the loss. This is a fantastic example of Function Events incredible client service. I HIGHLY recommend using Daphne and team for any event you have in 2016 - that is... If she is not already booked by yours truly. Huge thank you Function Events!

I had a brunch for 40 at my home this past weekend. Right from the get-go Ali was very responsive. She has a great variety of offerings and we were able to quickly select the menu. I chose to hire her for service as well, which was great because the food was fresh out of my kitchen and she also decorated my dining table beautifully. Ali came to the house before the event to see the kitchen and how to layout the buffet. She arrived early for the brunch, along with her husband and son, and stayed afterwards to completely clean up. All the food was delicious - beef tenderloin, shrimp creole, grilled vegetables, fresh sliced fruit, and particularly the Kentucky Derby bars. I also asked for bagels and salmon, and Ali added special butters and nut butters to the spreads. Ali is very professional and obviously takes great pride in her work. I will definitely be using her services again in the future!

I hired chef Cheryl Delish for designing awedding cake and it was outstanding! The cake was moist and flavorful. Not only did she design the cake, but my caterer backed out and she stepped right in. It was super treat when her sister, who is also a chef pitched in to help as well! I love her! Give her a shot, she is awesome!!

Chef Rich made our breakfast and lunch planning a breeze for a packed golf tournament/fundraiser at Pinetree CC just a few weeks ago. Everything neatly packaged and simple to distribute. Rich gave us options for our guests to select. With nearly 200 folks to serve, it was a relief to let Rich just take care of the details. Great personal touches and plenty of compliments to go around. Second year using Designated Chef-need I say more? I plan to use Designated Chef for other events soon!

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!
