I managed a physician group of 10 and a staff of about 25. This was a perfect choice for an Holiday Office Party. They all loved everything from the beginning... they enjoyed the display and I loved the selection of food which catered to everyone's taste. My group raved over the chicken, risotto, beans, veggies, and fruit. The pork was about a 50/50 but no one said they didn't like it, they just liked the chicken more... overall it was a hit! All the physicians asked for a card so I gave those out. I will definitely would recommend Julie for any event and I'll keep her name at the top of my list for other events. Julie is very professional and keeps the lines of communication open. Thanks so much for everything!
Kris made my daughters wedding perfect. Everything was set up beautifully, right down to coordinating the color of napkins to fit in with my daughters colors. I highly recommend Simply Home Cooking by Kris.
BJ's response to communication was instant and very cooperative. He was very easy to work with. His delivery was on time and the food was delicious. We are very happy with the experience and will be hiring Honeybadger again.
We used Chef Ott for a private party and the food was a hit and they were great to work with. We would definitely use them again.
Kelly was very helpful with the catering of our wedding. We had an idea of what we wanted and she was there to help with making it a reality. We had more than one of our guests tell us how delicious the food was. This was excellent place and if I have a need I would defenitley use again and am recommending Gateway Market to my family and friends in the future.
Chef Terence's creations are always aesthetically pleasing and equally delicious. If you have not experienced The Food Studio, you are missing out.
Their hospitality was awesome and the food was amazing! Will definitely tell others about them and will be using them again.
Local Yocals has easily become a family favorite. They are able to blend the perfect combination of incredibly fresh local flavors, and incredible chef talent. The menu as always has staples, but also has new flavors to try. If I have to choose a vendor at any event and Local Yocals is an option, we will choose them every single time. One thing I also appreciate is that they write where the food sources are from, it seems like everyone claims to be local, and this is the real deal. Well done.
Moos BBQ has catered multiple events for us, serving 800+ people. From Holidays and special occasions to company events, Moos always does a fantastic job! The food is always delicious, and a welcome change from the typical catering offered for groups of our size. The menu selection is great too. I would highly recommend Moos to anyone looking for a caterer for any event. Jeremy has been so easy to work with, he takes care of everything down to the last detail. We look forward to having Moos cater future events!
Johnny gave detailed instruction and demonstrated all aspects of the cooking experience. He also provided information about food purchasing, storing and preserving, as well as tips for preventing cross-contamination. I will be scheduling additional classes. My experience was delightful.
We had them cater an event for us and overall it was a very good experience. Alex was easy to communicate with and catered to our needs specifically. The food was amazing and all our guests really enjoyed themselves! Would definitely recommend to a friend.
I recently asked Carlos to cater an 80-person lunch event for a symposium my research group was hosting at Iowa State. Carlos did a fantastic job keeping in touch, letting us know his needs and exactly what he would be providing. His food is absolutely phenomenal! He made it fresh immediately beforehand and kept it well heated during the lunch. The buffet line moved quickly and everyone was very satisfied with the choices. Prices were extremely reasonable. All in all, I very highly recommend Carlos for any of your catering needs!
Park Place Catering did an outstanding job at my son and daughter-in-law's wedding in September in Ames. The food was amazing and the service was also. Not only did they keep beverages containers filled at the front beverage table, which was not their responsibility, but they also cleaned up the whole kitchen spotless and even did all of our dishes when they were done. I was so impressed with Park Place Catering and recommend them to anyone. They take pride in their business.
Mike and Vicky did an excellent job. There food was outstanding. I had a lot of compliments from our guests they served. I would highly recommend Prime Country
Our services are superior because we take the time to prepare our homemade food with care, we pride ourselves on presenting our food and services with a little bit of flair, and our extensive experience over the last 29 years has taught us how to be our best.
