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 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 Nefy was wonderful! She was very responsive and eager to make sure our menu was everything we wanted it to be. She stayed in contact with us and was excited to be a part of our company event. She and her staff arrived and set up the food and even brought an extra platter of food that would work for one of our employees with a food allergy. The food was wonderful and the pork and chicken were both very tender and moist. The seasoning was amazing and all of the food was presented in a very appealing manner. Chef Nefy followed up after the event to make sure that everything went well and to thank us for letting her be a part of our event. I would definitely recommend Chef Nefy with My Touch Of Finesse!

Three words--- hire Chef Heather! I went online to find a chef to come to our home and cater a baby shower for my daughter. After reading reviews and looking at the websites of the candidates I found, I decided to contact Chef Heather. She was quick to respond and asked all the right questions about the event and what I was picturing the day to be like. An enjoyable experience from the first interaction I had with her. After several wonderful emails and phone conversations, and an exchange of information and menus, we met at our house and I knew immediately I had found the right person. Chef Heather listened to all of my requests, and then the ideas, menu options, and creativity just started flowing from her! She is a true professional at her craft, incredibly accommodating, and made it possible for us to really enjoy the day. All 16 guests raved about the food and the cooking demo. My only regret is that Chef Heather was in the kitchen instead of sitting down with us to eat! Everyone loved getting to know her and learning from her. I will definitely call her again for any chef/catering need I have, and I would highly recommend you do to!

I highly recommend John Gifaldi's personal chef services. He's kind, professional and has a strong desire to educate and provide an excellent experience for his clients! I've recommended him to atleast one friend, a testament to how much I personally enjoyed our cooking lessons and the food we made! My favorite item is his lasagna. It's incredible!

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!!

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.

We had an opportunity to sample food made by Chef Krishna of local Green Eats! Not only did we love the food, but we loved what her and her company is all about!!! Chef Krishna started local Green Eats in 2009. It encompasses her love for cooking, along with her goal to eliminate the stress of cooking for her clients. local Green Eats is a local and independent catering and personal chef company serving the Greater Atlanta area. They provide food that tastes good and is also good for you! They accommodate any special requests including vegetarian and/or organic meals and much more. Our first phone consultation consisted of Chef Krishna asking us questions about our food preferences to get a feel of what we were looking for and to personalize the menu based on our needs. Prices are not on her site because everything is completely personalized for our family. She works with everyone's budget!!! The initial consultation is free so there is nothing to lose! We had the honor of sampling three delicious dishes that Chef Krishna prepared for us right in our kitchen! All three dishes had amazing flavor and were to die for!!! Thanks again Chef Krishna for following your dreams and cooking for us regularly!

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!!!

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
