Ravi at Chic Chef Catering was excellent! The food was delicious and warm when served. He and his staff were very professional and punctual, making sure everyone was taken care of and that dinner was cleaned up at the end. He and his staff were great, and I would certainly recommend them!

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.

As a fellow event and catering professional, Feast and Imbibe did stellar job of amazing my guests. Recently, Heather and Chef D'Andre created an amazing menu and wine pairings for my baby shower, an intimate dinner for 12. As my guests walked in Heather was offering the champagne we decided to serve and Chef and his team were busy in the kitchen working on plating the passed apps, D'Andre's signature Chicken and Waffle bites! OMG!! Throughout the six course dinner the F& I team was the height of professionalism. Not to mention each course Chef created was mindbendingly delicious! My guests were both satisfied with portion sizes and some woke up the next day craving more! We dined on a beautiful deconstructed salad, smoked salmon, duck confit, olive oil poached salmon and my favorite...lamb belly!! For dessert Chef created a S'more Bomb that was "smoked" with vanilla bean and once cracked open revealed the gender of my baby!! My guests laughed and screamed with delight! Even adults love playing with their food!! I can't wait to use F&I again!!

Yolanda prepared our food for over a month while I was recovering from having knee surgery. A huge thanks goes out to Blackpearl catering service for a job will done. The food was awesome. Again thanks for being there when I needed your help.

This year for my wife's birthday, I was going to take her to a popular raw restaurant but she instead asked for food from Sybyl. I asked Sybyl to create a birthday platter for my wife and she put together an amazing feast. (Stuffed mushrooms, spicy greens, sushi, chili, eggplant pizza, kale chips, banana creme pie and brownies with caramel sauce) My wife was elated and had enough food to last her for 4 days.

We have been using Chef Dwight for 10 plus years now. From personal parties of 80 plus people in our home to business events that needed catering, I have always been able to depend on Dwight to bring a top notch level of professionalism as well as just the right personal touch to each event for a perfect result every time. Each event menu was designed around my specifications with helpful suggestions from Chef Dwight and met or exceeded my expectations as well as delighted the palates of my guests. I would not hesitate to call Chef Dwight for any type of catering requirements for myself and I highly recommend him to anyone needing these services.

Chef Paul Catering was exactly what I was looking for in a full service caterer. They took care of everything and the food was wonderful. They worked so quietly and neatly that I hardly knew they were in our home. I will definitely use them again and recommend them.
