We hired Chef Rich and his team to cater my husband's 40th birthday party. His team serviced 60 of my guests. The full catering service included delivery/pickup of rental equipment, setup , clean up, servers, & a bartendar. They're service made the day/night enjoyable as they took care of everything including picking up the ice, mixers, etc. All i had to do was ask. The food they prepared was delicious, we had a combination of meat appetizers and vegetarian appetizers. The guests thoroughly enjoyed the food. The only thing i would have changed was to have the servers pass out the food more consistently to my guests rather than having it placed on a table in the corner as it quickly got cold and perhaps didn't taste as good as it would have hot/warm. Other than that my experience with Chef's Most Wanted Catering & Chef Services was outstanding. I would definitely use their services again for both big and small events. Thank you for making the night a success!
It is difficult to put into words how grateful I am that I found North Island Catering. From the beginning to the end Allen and Christina were wonderful to work with. Allen went above and beyond what a good catering company should do. We needed a caterer for my daughter's wedding. North Island catering was one of the several companies that responded to my request on Thumbtack. When I contacted them they were very helpful and was able to give me a price within our budget. Our menu would consist of fajitas and tacos with all the fixings and would be buffet style setting. From the taste test to the wedding they were very professional and catered to all the dietary needs of our guests. Once we finalized the guest list we decided to do tacos for 50, fajitas for 90 and vegetarian fajitas for 10 people. They were able to accommodate for the vegetarian guests and the gluten free guests. Even when I forgot to mention one of the condiments we wanted Allen was on his toes. I had missed letting him know that we wanted hot peppers on the side. He thought ahead and got them anyways. I contacted him the day before the wedding about the peppers. He informed me that he had already purchased them. I was so impressed that he anticipated our needs ahead of time. They arrived at the reception on time and were all set up in the time frame that they had stated. Allen and his crew were very professional in letting the guests know which foods were vegetarian and which foods were gluten free. I received several comments from guests on how good the food was and how nice it was to have so many options for the different dietary needs of each of the guests. It made the guests feel like they were each thought of individually and that their dietary needs were important to North Island Catering. When everyone was finished eating they packaged up the leftover food for us to take home all without any disturbance to the rest of the reception going on. I was very impressed with how smoothly everything ran and how they helped make my daughter's special day a success. During conversations with Allen and Christina I got the impression that their specialty was Italian food. They did an outstanding job preparing the Mexican food we requested. I feel that they would do an outstanding job in preparing any type of food requested. I would definitely work with this company again in the future.
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.
Our team of three went above and beyond to make our wedding reception a huge success. The caterers arrived on time and helped set up food for 90 guests. We were running terribly late and I did not get a chance to talk with the caterers beforehand. They intuitively knew exactly what to do and were extremely helpful. The layout was beautiful and guests comments on how professional and friendly each caterer was. They even were willing to stay an hour extra to help clean up. I heartily recommend C&C Party Services for anyone hosting a big event! You will not be disappointed.
I happened to find Inglenook Catering and Joe on a quick search for local caterers. I wanted to try a different caterer with a different menu. My daughter picked the menu, and it was pretty traditional....Italian beef, Italian sausage, fried chicken, mostacolli, green beans almandine, and scalloped potatoes. Truly, I wanted to explore other items on the menu, but since I offered and it was her choice, that's what I went with. The Italian beef and sausage were homemade and definitely amazing! Great flavor and seasonings! The fried chicken was delicious as well! Everything was warmed and ready to serve. Would definitely order from Joe again! Thank you so very much for the prompt communication and coming to assist with the drop off. My guests throughly enjoyed your catering Joe, and I will definitely recommend you to my friends! Would love to try other entrees next time!!
Chef David, I want to thank you for doing such an amazing job for our sons back lawn wedding reception. The food was fabulous, as was the service. All our guests raved how wonderful the food was. Your staff, Mike, Jasmine, Michelle and you CHEF were so hardworking and accommodating and ready to make everything perfect. We will never forget this special day in their lives and you helped make it that way. Everyone should have a Chef David 24-7 in my book. We highly recommend Lakeshore Private Chef & Catering to anyone planning a large or intimate event. Honestly it could not have been better.
Dana and her team were exceptional with their catering for my parent's 50th wedding anniversary. They were like family to us all and the food was excellent! I highly recommend them and plan to ask for her help again in the future! Thank you Dana!! Sincerely, Nick Basiaga
Steve catered a dinner for 22 at a condo club room. Arrangements with Steve were easy and he was responsive to emails and phone calls. The 3 staff who managed the event did a great job and were pleasant to work with - very unobtrusive during dinner. Overall, the food was excellent and we had more than enough of everything. The only negative was that the salmon we selected as one of our entrees was a bit dry, but I'm sure it's not easy to keep salmon moist when it has to be cooked 2-3 hours before the event. I would certainly use FOODesign again and recommend Chef Brech to others.
I had the absolute blind luck to find the lovely Heather and D'Andre of Feast & Imbibe while looking for alternatives to typical "chicken or beef" caterers for my June 2014 wedding. I had already decided that I wanted to do an upscale cocktail reception in lieu of a seated dinner, and had quotes for over $10,000 for 80 people (and this was from a place that wanted to serve quesadillas and fried food as apps--that's fine, but not for ten grand and not at all what I was looking for). I couldn't see spending money like that on food that was impersonal and trite, and I began to look for a private chef or other alternatives to a standard wedding caterer. I honestly and truly feel lucky to have found Feast & Imbibe, as they allowed me to have everything exactly the way I wanted for an extremely reasonable price. You could really taste the thought, love and care in D'Andre's food--for real. I had some ideas in mind in terms of the feel of the menu, but I have to say that Heather and D'Andre totally blew me away and knocked it out of the park. From our first interaction, Heather was warm and professional and extremely honest about everything. I told her what I wanted and what I could spend, and she and D'Andre were willing to work with me to provide the experience I was looking for (and they ended up putting together a reception that was more than I could have asked for) for the price I wanted (I ended up spending a bit more than I envisioned, but it was purely due to MY changes--never experienced any pressure or felt like I was being pushed into anything). Heather was SO SO helpful; seeing as how I was doing most things myself, she offered herself and her services at any point she could to make things easier on me-- advice for other vendors, her own decorations, etc. AND THE FOOD...OMG D'Andre...keep on doin' what you're doin', becuase it's a month later and my guests are still talking about how amazing the food was. The food was so on point, the service was so thoughtful, and the selection was incredible. I was able to impress and please both my foodie friends and my meat and potatoes family--which is a serious feat itself. Everything about the actual day of my wedding was kind of a mess (weather, venue issues, mix-ups out of anyone's control), but the supreme service, hospitality and care that Heather and D'Andre put into catering my event absolutely made up for everything that went wrong. They were able to circumnavigate last minute issues with no problem or loss of cool, and everything down to the waitstaff and decor/signs for the food were top notch. My husband and I truly felt that they had our best interests at heart and put love into what they did for us, and we are eternally grateful. I could not have asked for more, and I will be recommending their services to anyone who will listen until I am blue in the face. Seriously, people, if you want the utmost in professionalism, care, delicious food, value for the $$--please go with Feast & Imbibe. They are amazing to say the least!! I would never even consider working with another caterer.

It was our first catering experience. Were we in for a treat?! I was hosting a holiday party for 30+ people and we had a real feast! The meats were all very tasty and the meat stuffed pastries were simply delicious. The "Yuca al Mojo" and the "Arroz con Gandules" added unique dimension to the menu. More importantly, Esther and her associates were very thoughtful and thought through more details than we did. We really appreciated their help.
