We got married on July 15th and every step of the way Vincent and Gotta Have It Catering was incredibly helpful! We weren't sure what menu we wanted and they helped us craft a wonderful menu and were even open to last minute changes. Our guests loved the mashed potato bar the best followed by the brisket and jerk chicken sliders. I only had a couple of desserts but those were also amazing. So many guests told us how much they loved the food. During the reception itself servers frequently checked in and asked if we needed anything. It was everything we could have wanted on our special day. Would definitely recommend if you were looking for a caterer for any event!
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!
Mike was excellent for a corporate event for my client. Plus everyone loved the food. Would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a caterer for their event.
Outstanding, Professional Company and the Crew. They were on time, handled all of the logistics in a outstanding manner for my wedding and reception. They went beyond what was asked for and I highly recommend using Blesst Events for your event. This company represents Excellence and Professionalism. Sheila Richardson
Chef Sabrina created a fantastic Thanksgiving dinner for my family event of 25. Very personable/professional and went above and beyond to ensure all of our needs were met. I highly recommend!
I had a lot of things go wrong on my wedding day, but I can honestly say that Cooking with a star Catering came through and did an outstanding job. The staff was so courteous and was always asking me if I needed anything (anything at all! even drinks from the bar!) The food was delicious and the coordinator that I hired from them was outstanding! Kendra did a wonderful job and she made me feel like everything was going to be alright even when everything was going wrong. Everything I asked her to set up was just the way I wanted it. If I ever need to have another event catered, I will definitely be using Cooking with a Star catering again!
Adilah's Catering is the go-to caterer for authentic cuisine and service! I have personally experienced her superior food and service through a personalized dinner service, everything from the custom made drinks to the full meal presentation were OUTSTANDING!! I enjoyed eggplant Parmesan along with vegetables and a decadent cheesecake. A meal the still makes my heart smile. I also experienced their catering through at an evening wedding were the food and service were equally matched, taste and presentation were impeccable, she and her staff go above and beyond to accommodate your event, no matter how big or small! I highly recommend Adilahs Catering as a personal chef and event caterer!
Chef Kelsey came well prepared and cooked a delicious three course dinner for four of us. The portion sizes were plentiful and she even left us with leftovers. She is pleasant and eager to please. We would use her again for another special occasion.
Charles of C-Bo's BBQ and his crew are very friendly, professional, and committed to providing the best possible dining experience for your event. The food was delicious and they were able to accommodate for dietary restrictions like vegetarian. Charles was quick to respond to any and all of our communications and followed up with us. His team is very capable and eager to create a great meal and experience.
T & T is what we called the crew here. We hired them for our Christmas office party and going through the options on thumbtack. The team was amazing from start to finish always available for questions, pricing, and menu options We went with a Mediterranean /southern food menu options. The food was outstanding even the vegan tofu stir fry tasted delicious we couldn't tell it was a vegan dish. For our drink option the team did fresh strawberry lemonade, Regular lemonade and pineapple lemonade. For desert we had banana pudding and peach cobbler. the office staff licked the pan clean. (SERIOUSLY) Thank you guys for catering our event we look forward to having you guys again for IBS family day in the spring Sincerely Janice Yankowski CEO
The event catered by Ali's Personal Chef Service could not have been any better. We continue to receive comments from guests telling how delicious the food was and what a beautiful selection and presentation. We could not have been more please. You can be confident in a successful event Ali.
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 Tad's Tasty Treats cater an event for an organization I'm involved in at school, and the food was great! Mr. Spencer was so nice throughout the whole process of ordering the food and having it at the event!
Hardworking and amazing !!! Definetly recommend PCF for any event
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!
Dick and his team always deliver delicious food and a fun experience. Guests thoroughly enjoy every morsel they Dick artfully prepares. It is a pleasure working with Dick from planning all the way through the event execution.

Jarrod catered my baby shower and everything about his service was superb! He arrived earlier than expected and was set up well before the event started. His presentation was beautiful and the food was delicious! I’d definitely use his service again and would recommend him to everyone I know looking for an awesome caterer!
OMG! This is the Best Catering I've ever received! The price was Great! The taste of the food was Great! The Service was Great! Warm, inviting hospitality!
