I found Thumbtack through a google search and didn't have high hopes of hearing back from them when I filled out their questionnaire. Within 24-hours I had a Thumbtack response with Lily Pad Catering as a suggested caterer for a dinner event I was hosting. Lily Pad Catering (Dana Liljequist) did a perfect job with the food for my 40-person dinner event. Dana is very professional and friendly and easy to work with. There were rave reviews about the food and Dana's service after our event. Thanks!

Let me first say Thank You to Blessed Occasion Catering , they went over and above our expectation. Our main catering event went wonderful, but we need additional food for our hospitality room for Friday and Sunday and she come through on a last-minute request. JC Price High School Alumni Association, loves her fried chicken! If you get a opportunity to use her please do, you would not be disappointed. Nadine Jones

I hired Heavy Smoke to cater my wedding. What an amazing dinner. We had heard about the food and went to a BBQ cookoff to try some of the things they make to see if it was something we would like to pursue at the wedding. My mouth didn't know what hit it. We chose the brisket and pulled chicken and what a crowd pleaser this was. We had a picnic style wedding and Heavy Smoke not only cooked the meat, but they made their famous baked beans, salad, and a wonderful special recipe cole slaw. Minus the "I do's", this was honestly the highlight of the wedding. I spent more time answering questions about where I found them than I did about the wedding. :) I was very happy that everyone had such a wonderful BBQ dinner, and was very impressed with the way the guys handled the catering side of things. It was display that was very well put together, and certainly worthy of any wedding. Not a soul went home hungry. Great stuff and great guys. We are thinking about a redo very soon. Thank Heavy Smoke!!!

Vivian is the BEST! I hired her to prepare a surprise birthday dinner for my girlfriend. Every aspect of the evening was world class, from set-up and serving to our mouth watering 4-course meal. If you are looking for great food, and an awesome experience, I highly recommend Vivian for your catering needs. Best personal chef hands down!

I was fortunate enough to have found Mellow Mushroom Catering when I had to arrange a dinner in St. Louis (I was in NYC!) for a group of 25 picky people with varied dietary preferences including vegetarian and vegan. Kelly Nielson, Catering Coordinator, was able to talk me off a cliff through her sage advice and proficiency, and with her help and calm demeanor, I was able to order plenty of food, including salad and pizzas and all the fixings, that covered all dietary bases. The food was not only delicious, but was delivered on time, and was packed and presented beautifully - not a detail was overlooked! I highly recommend Mellow Mushroom for your catering needs - you will not be disappointed with the proficient service or the variety, quality and presentation of the food! Thank you, Mellow Mushroom, for an outstanding job - I wish we had them in NYC!

Natina was prompt, well planned as well as full of ideas that we had not even thought of during our initial consultation. When it came to our ideas, Natina was very patient and she listened to all of our requests and executed them all to our liking. The food was amazing! It was far beyond our expectations. Noirblanc is my #1 choice for any future events. Thanks Again!
