We have a family dinner once a month and I don't cook. CHEF MOST WANTED TO THE RESCUE!!! The menu was fabulous, Chef Eric and his assistant were spot on and included sunset in our evening menu. Everyone appreciated the great food and service. I will definite hire again.

Chic Chef Catering supplied buffet dinner for 120 guests at a fundraising event for a non-profit ministry. We got many compliments about the taste and quality of the food. And their service time was quicker than we had budgeted!

For a baby shower I held, we ordered the basic breakfast plus quiche. All was excellent, the food and service. I received many compliments from my guests. One of the gentlemen that delivered the food set everything up and stayed to help out for a couple hours, everything was awesome. I would recommend highly.

Loretta was fantastic to work with in planning our retirement/birthday party. She was sympathetic to my concerns about the weather as we were having the party outside. She was flexible and responsive when I had questions. The food was delicious, and our server Kelsey was awesome! I highly recommend Loretta and Just a Bite

We hired Tracy to help out with our dad's Disco themed 70th bday party & we were very pleased with her service as bartender, food management and clean-up. She was punctual, timely with our communications, flexible and demonstrated great work ethic. The Best was I asked if she could come dressed in 70s attire and she came in dressed as Cher, with disco ball earrings. All of our guests loved her, she totally was the coolest bartender and even went about and beyond bringling life to the party when she brought out delicious shots to pass around and cheers! We would definitely re-hire her again for our future large celebrations! Thanks for the Awesome memories Tracy!

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.

I just love this company because of the food and the owner's talent, service and energy. Dave's company was "born" out of a family interest in great food and authenticity. I see that in the catering done by Showthyme in every way. Not only is the food great but the presentation is wonderful as well. Will use with any opportunity I have. Recently we used for an event bringing together new prospects for our board and company- went flawlessly.

Maya truly went above and beyond for our wedding day! She was the manager for our event before starting her own company and she KILLED IT! She provided incredible and helpful expertise throughout the planning process and especially on the day - Maya and the rest of the staff did more than we even expected them to (like folding napkins and lighting candles, for example). Plus, the food was amazing. We knew early on that we wanted fried chicken and Maya was able to serve it hot and crispy to 140 people; we got tons of compliments on the food and the service. Overall, she made our reception so easy and wonderful - we couldn't be happier!

Jessica and her team recently catered a to-day event for our team and knocked it out of the park! From the timeliness of the delivery to the quality of the food, everything was fantastic! The taco-bar on day 1 was a huge hit! They made sure we had nice utensils and nameplates for all of the ingredients so everyone knew what they were having and if allergens would be an issue. Thank you for your thoughtfulness, attention to detail, and delicious catering!
