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!

North Island Catering did an outstanding job of catering a summer party for 100+ people. We hired them to do the catering, serving, and bartending. First let's talk about the food, not only do they offer a wide variety of options but the food was amazing. Bacon wrapped shrimp and spicy chicken sandwich are a must! Several guests asked who did the catering cause they wanted to hire them. Second, the staff was not only polite and professional but went out of their way to make sure that everything went smoothly and we were happy. They were on time and checked in with me throughout the night making sure everything was going as planned. Kathleen was the bartender and if your lucky enough to get her you will not be disappointed. She went out of her way to help me get things set up, polite and overall a really nice person. Overall I am extremely happy and would defiantly North Island Catering again!

Loretta was absolutely amazing as well as her small bites. Perfect for any occasion or parties! She catered for our Holiday Cocktail Party last weekend and we couldn't have asked for more. Everyone kept complimenting the food, and couldn't stop munching. She is so flexible and accommodating, and is more than willing to work with anything that you need. We are having her cater another Holiday party that we have coming up this weekend as well :)

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 would like to thank you for catering my birthday party. Your menu is impressive and I was happy to see you were able to cook meal choices not on your menu. Your prices was very reasonable for the amount of people you prepared food for. Everyone that attended said your food was great and I will agree.You and your staff were very professional and showed true meaning to serves with a smile. I was impressed, I have your card, I will be in touch.
