The catering party on Saturday 4/29 was fantastic! The crew, Julie, Silvia and Teresa are superb! They did wonderful job together. Food was great, service was so professional, the clean up is the cherry on the top! We all had great time. The ladies are so friendly and nice and professional!

I would HIGHLY recommend North Island Catering! Allen & Chris put together a beautiful spread for our event with very little notice and I received so many compliments. The communication was great, the food was delicious, they showed up on time, and I couldn't be happier with everything. Chris is amazing in the kitchen! Everything we tasted was better than the last. My personal favorite was the strawberry yogurt with granola. Or was it the cinnamon streusel coffee cake? I'm not sure ;-)

Chic Chef worked with us while we planned our destination wedding from afar. We had a very slim budget but we were treated professionally and offered top notch options. The food was amazing and the portions were generous. Our guests were very satisfied. We even had a few dietary requests, which were accommodated without question. We couldn't have picked a better catering business for our special day.

This is now my second time working with Joseph Burby and Inglenook Catering. Inglenook catering was absolutely a joy to work with! Joe did a food tasting for us, gave wonderful recommendations that helped guide me in making decisions, and was VERY accommodating. He was a wonderful communicator and the food was a HOME RUN! Everyone at our fundraiser banquet was so impressed with the meal and the staff that was provided. This is the second time I have used Inglenook; from a 90 person event to a 350 person event, Inglenook is the caterer to have.

We hired Cater-2-U Catering LLC for our Thanksgiving dinner and it was great. We had twenty-five guests and everyone raved about the food, especially the turkey and ceviche. Chef Mike and his assistant arrived right on time, set everything up, and the rest was a breeze. We have already referred him to a friend who needs a caterer for Thanksgiving. We will definitely hire Chef Mike again!!

This was my first time hiring a caterer, and I was not disappointed. This was also my first time using Thumbtack. Had never even heard of it before googling “caterers near me”. Carol of Food with Flair did a wonderful job catering a family outdoor BBQ at my home for my dad’s 90th birthday. We had 25 people in attendance, and many commented on how good the food was. She was very responsive from the moment she and I were matched through Thumbtack, all the way through my event. She helped plan the meal, making suggestions on food items that were popular at other BBQs she had catered; arrived promptly the day of the event with much of the food prep completed and the remainder completed once she arrived; provided the warming trays, serving dishes, and serving utensils; grilled the meat (hamburgers and chicken) on my Weber grill; set up the serving table; had the meal ready in a timely fashion; put away leftovers for me; and left my kitchen clean. She also was able to work with dietary restrictions. She offered to provide paper goods and make arrangements for other supplies (e.g. canopy), which I declined. She brought two pineapple upside down cakes (my Dad’s favorite), and because we had neglected to discuss which of us would provide the candles, she decided to play it safe and brought a “9” & a “0” candle for one of the cakes. For the other cake she had a friend create a diecut that read “Happy 90th Birthday” in colors that coordinated with the cake. It was a nice, thoughtful surprise. While I had thought about asking whether she offered tastings, I didn’t due to the small size of my party; the short time frame between booking the party and the event itself; and her experience as an executive chef. I trusted that the food would be good, and it was. But I can’t share whether she offers tastings or not. My husband and I were very pleased with the service Carol provided and would definitely use her again.

Clarissa was great -- very responsive, flexible, and accommodating. In addition, the food -- for a baby shower brunch -- was excellent! We had mini frittatas, French toast, mini pancake stacks, fruit parfaits, mini bagels with lox and cream cheese, fruit skewers, and excellent croissant sausage sandwiches with aged cheddar! Clarissa also brought garnishes for Blood Marys and mimosas and was willing to provide coffee at the last moment when I realized we didn't have it! I'd highly recommend.

Kristin is the best caterer! We connected about 3 weeks before my Housewarming party for 40 guests. Not only was she able to hire a bartender and server, she also supplied a bartender table! She worked with me to make an absolutely delicious meal (Southern/Cajun) and her signature charcuterie board is a true show-stopper! If I could give more than 5 stars I would! Will definitely plan to use her for all my catering needs.

The overall experience was exceptional and working with Maya was truly an amazing experience! The staff was professional and the food was delicious! Everything about the service provided was memorable and would recommend them to anyone needing a quality caterer. They took the stress off and allowed us to focus on the wedding. I can’t express how much I appreciate their service and how we were able to enjoy the wedding. Again, a big thank you to BellaRu Catering!

I used WoodisCookin Catering for Thanksgiving. His desire to make the experience as intimate as possible truly makes him unique. I found myself upset when I was getting around to the final bites of his dish; it's that good! His customer service is amazing as well! I look forward to working with WoodisCookin several times and beyond.

I've ordered from D'licious Treats many times and have yet to be disappointed. My Last few orders was a Hello Kitty Cookie Birthday Cake, my daughter was thrilled. It was the best cookie cake I've ever tasted. I also recently used the catering service for Thanksgiving and my order arrived on time. The owner came and made sure everything was set up right, she was very pleasant. The food stayed warm the entire time and the best part the food was awesome . For any Holiday I would reccomend the turkey breast with homemade gravy it was unbelievable. I will be back!!!
