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!
We hired John to cater our wedding in May 2017. Upon initial inquiry John had the most impressive menu items vs other caterers and had a competitive price for our crowd of ~130. My husband and I enjoyed the food as did the guests. One guest comment that sticks out to me was from a very discerning foodie and chef himself. He praised the food and I can't think of a better compliment! John was fantastic and I would hire him again in a minute. I encourage you to do the same for your event.
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.
I highly recommend Ali's Personal Chef Service. She catered an event this past weekend for me with 70 people in attendance. The food was FABULOUS. Everything from scratch. She is highly professional and I will absolutely use her again.
Food and value are top notch. The food is so delicious. Chef Hull spends time with you and lets you watch his skills. Then he serves up an amazing three course dinner that can't be compared to any restaurant. He even cleans everything up.
We had the pleasure of using Chef Joseph Elias & Paula's ZZerts for our annual Client Appreciation Event. They did a spectacular job for us! The food, service, and presentation was 5 star. They showed tremedous class throughout the evening and made all of our clients feel at home. We plan on using them again in the near future.
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.
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!
Chef Valeri has been making delicious meals for me and my family for the last five years. I first hired her to cater a business event and then immediately hired her to provide personal chef services. Her food is delicious and her customer service is outstanding. Her attention to detail and her knowledge of food preparation and specialized diets is amazing. Whenever I ask her what makes a particular dish taste so good she says, "there is love in there" and there truly is. Hire her! You won't regret it!
Chef Pavla is fantastic. My wedding cake was magical and delicious. She was even able to print a photo on sugar.
My experience with Chef Dee was far beyond Amazing. She is very passionate about her work and she is kind and very thoughtful. I had a blast in my cooking lesson will definitely book her again. Don't miss out of Chef Deee, she is the Best!
Jeffrey has catered a dinner for the ladies of our church for the last three years. The food has been delicious. The ladies rave about the dishes each year. I would recommend him to any group looking for a professional chef.
Chef Will was awesome co worker. He has always been professional and calm through every situation that has came his way. Chef Will is very knowledgable of his craft along with other categories. He is a cool and down to earth. I am honored to call him my friend and chef.....
Was absolutely amazing for my party! I would recommend him first every time. The food was delicious and he was such a sweetheart to work with. Great pricing as well!
What an amazing opportunity to sit down with a private dinner party and have the exquisite Chef Joe prepare amazing dishes for us. We enjoyed everything and will definitely be booking again and again. Paying lots of money for the wrong caters and chefs had been the norm until we found Chef Joe. Never have I met someone who passionately loves their job so much to ensure every bite that every single guest eats is enjoyable to the last drop. Thank you so much for sharing your incredible gift of food artistry with the world.
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!
I have one word for chef Taste catering.. EXCEPTIONAL! Very professional and high quality. We had an event that require a lot of special request and they meet every one. Everyone raved about the brunch he prepared. We will defientely return for his services! Thank you so much Chef.
Sean created an exquisite gourmet dinner in our home. He complimented the dinner with elegant flowers and tableware. His creations were as beautiful to behold as they were savory and flavorful to the palate. Sean was the consummate professional, arriving early, coming prepared and doing all of his own prep and clean up. If you are considering an experience like this, I highly recommend Sean. If something less intimate is desired, the foods and flavors were still amazing.
