We have had many a function, I have never had such delicious & creative cuisine as I had at our summer employee appreciation event! Not only was your food exceptional, your style & décor was so impressive, I can’t believe the way you made each ethnic station so authentic. God is in the details and God was certainly in you, Marla. Can’t wait to utilize you and your many talents again!! Thank you once again! - State Farm Insurance

We used Nelson's for our wedding reception this past September. I cannot express how amazing of a job they did. From the beginning, they were easy to work with, and were eager to help make my reception what I had always wanted it to be. All of my guests were impressed with the layout, and the helpfulness of the staff Nelson's sent. After the reception, I kept getting compliments on how delicious the food was! They also did seat covers, which transformed my reception hall! The experience I had with them was outstanding, and have already given their information to other people I know that are looking for caterers!!

I have eaten Donald food many times and have been satisfied each time. He has cooked for large crowds and small family dinners. Always get many compliments. He is able to adjust to other peoples taste. He can cook mild flavored as well as spicy at the same time. Most of all he enjoys what he is doing.

Raquel came out to work our wedding reception/tailgate and she did a wonderful job! Everyone commented on how nice she was. She even donated our extra food to a local charity to make sure it didn't go to waste.

Verified review

For the last 4 years, Jonny has prepared wonderful organic meals for our family of 4--each of us with special needs, which were shifting from season to season and day to day--some vegetarian, paleo, gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, no onions, no garlic, no green peppers...etc. very challenging. But Jonny was ALWAYS remarkably good natured and flexible, committed to pleasing each one of us. And he did, with flying colors--every day we had excellent, delicious, beautiful prepared and presented meals. We're so grateful to him.

It wasn't about mechanics; it was about a feeling, wanting to give someone something, which in turn was really gratifying. That really resonated for me.
