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 cannot express enough the gratitude I have for Allen and his wife and all of his team! From the moment I first talked to him, I felt comfortable and relaxed, which is not what I felt when I talked to the preferred caterers that my venue was trying to make me go with. Allen made me feel as though I was apart of his family. He did so much for me and my now husband. I planned my wedding in two months and I contacted him about a month before my wedding. He was so fast at responding and even answered my calls/messages when he was off work! Allen was amazing, I honestly cannot say this enough, he went back and forth with some difficulties we had with my venue, but he fought for me to have my perfect day and I will forever be grateful for that. The food was sooooo good, everyone told me how good it was, and even my husband who is a picky eater loved it! Allen's team even cut my cake! And the food that was left over was given to us at no charge (which helped in all of the after parties we had). Allen, thank you so much for all that you did and I hope you and your family and business are always blessed!! -Ariadne :)
Ravi's menu offerings were the most interesting of the local caterers I looked at before I chose him to cater my parents' 50th Wedding Anniversary. The food was delicious, very high quality, and arrived right on time. Many of the guests commented on how good it was. I would definitely work with Chic Chef Catering again.
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!!
The food was absolutely amazing. Rave reviews from all of the party guests. I will definite use again!! A+++
We have had many private chefs and caterers. We have found our “go to” chef service. Food was amazing. Mike and Matt were fun. They entertained the kids at the bar as they cooked, served.. and cleaned up. If you have never had a personal chef, try them. If you have before, uplevel to them. And by the way.. the cost was a bargain. Dinner for 8 with wine and beer pairing Less than $100 per person Insanely goid!
I hired Chef David to do an intimate but fun dinner party for 12 people. This was my first time using him for anything and I was obviously hoping that all would go well on every front. But he exceeded my expectations by a lot. From the creativity of the menu (it was a five course meal +passed appetizers), the uniqueness of the ingredients, the presentation of the food, the service, the fun attitude, the pure professionalism - all was honestly was perfection. His services enabled me to sit back and really enjoy my guests in my new home. I will be using David again and again. I found the chef I was looking for to do these types of dinner parties that I very infrequently give...but will definitely host more as a result of this past evening. In fact, he is doing our family Thanksgiving in a few days and I am positive it will be outstanding.
Lindsey prepared a buffet meal for a surprise 70th birthday party for 20 guests. Lindsey was very communicative, responsive and accommodated all my requests. She specializes in gluten-free cooking, but can do either. Her team was attentive and congenial. If you're looking for the convenience of home-cooked meals without the hassle of doing it yourself, then Lindsey is right for you.
Chef Kirk responded to my emergency plea after another chef cancelled 4 hrs before my wedding and dinner party. Chef Kirk was in my home , fresh groceries in hand and serving an assortment of appetizers 2 hours later. During our wedding ceremony, Chef Kirk was in the kitchen preparing the menu that I had previously chosen. The food and presentation was outstanding!! My guests raved about the food. And, I simply sat back, relaxed and enjoyed every moment. Chef Kirk could not have pulled this off without his experience, professionalism, talent, and generosity! I am truly grateful and have a wonderful memory of my wedding day instead of a catastrophe.
Awesome DJ! Knows how to keep your guests entertained! Will play any type of music requested! Went to a birthday bbq that he djed and there was never a dull moment. He played for hours without fading! Not only did he play great music, he interacted with the guests keeping everyone laughing, dancing, and having a great time! He provided all of his own equipment, and even had led lights which really enhanced the party at night! There wasn't a schedule of events for the day/night, but he was willing and very capable to go along with anything we wanted! He even moved his equipment to the backyard for no extra charge when we wanted to continue the party out back. After I heard him dj at this event, I had him make a mix for my daughter's cheer routine! He did wonderful and gave us exactly what we were looking for! Would definitely recommend him for any event!
Contacted Chef Carol to do an after work networking event and cocktail party for 100 people. She presented a selection of menu items that would work within a very short period of time from out initial meeting. On the day of the event she arrived promptly with all the supplies needed and handled every detail perfectly. We received raved reviews from the attendees about all the food but especially the flat breads. Chef Carol took care of all the clean up also and let the event spotless as well. A true professional who delivers quality food, we cannot wait for our next event to hire her back.
I would hire Gracious again to cater future parties. All my guest loved the food and the presentation was great. I found Clarissa to be very accomadating.
We hired Diana for a family party. The guests all raved about how great the food was. We will certainly use Diana again for future parties. She brought much more food than I anticipated and made the event a success. I highly recommend her for party catering.
When planning a party it's very difficult to find the perfect combination of professionalism and culinary expertise. I found both in hiring Chez Mikey. My guests and I were so impressed with Chef Mike's preparation of our appetizers and main entré. We began our dinner with a one bite amuse bouchée, marinated carrots and cucumber caviar tray. Beautiful and very delicious. For the entré we had the "Hunters' Trophy" (lamb chop on top of polenta and a slowly cooked chicken thigh). This combination was presented artfully; and more importantly this dish was so tasty that even the guests with whom lamb chops are not thier favorite protein, found the lamb chop tender and cooked to perfection and loved it. Chef Mike ended the meal with a special chocolate ganache celebration cake which left all my guests happily ending on a sweet note. When I have another event, I'm speed dialing Chez Mikey because he will soon be booked up. Chef Mike and Sous Chef Diana are top notch in making a party scrumptious and elegant without the worry.
I was very pleased with the catering process from Kitchfix. Ashley was very responsive and helpful throughout the ordering process and the food was very to most of our staff's liking. We ordered the Rosemary Beef, Falafel, Maple Shallot Chicken Breast, Caramelized Apple and Walnut Salad, and had sides including green beans, cauliflower and broccoli, and a cauliflower rice. All prepared and executed well.
Ari did a great job preparing a taco bar for my son's first birthday party. The food was excellent and we received lots of compliments. Her prices are very reasonable and she provides a great value for the money.
I hire Balieys Catering for my mother’s surprise 50th Birthday party. The food and professionalism of the staff were amazing! We even had a little extra food left and guess were fighting over the last of it lol.
I hired Heaven Can Wait Catering for my office luncheon. The food was amazing. He didn't have a set menu which was great. We wanted to try different kind of foods (beside baked Mostaccoli). He gave us a good variety of things to choose from and my co-workers enjoyed everything. I would definitely recommend them to friends, family and co-workers.
You catered my daughters wedding. Small intimate affair in our home. It felt like the RITZ CARLTON!!! The food and desserts were amazing. The look of the party was more than what my daughter ever hoped for. Thank you for the amazing experience
Cheffield Events & Catering has to be one of the best caterers we have hired for the office. The food smelled and tasted amazing. Everyone was going back for seconds and thirds!!! We are a picky bunch, but we will be using Cheffield's in the future. They were prompt, professional and the presentations was great. We loved that they printed up a menu for our small gathering. We would recommend Cheffield Events & Catering for catering, and we hope to do many events with them.
Alvin did an incredible job creating the most wonderful dinner party for me and my girlfriends! The food was delicious, the presentation was phenomenal and the service was exceptional! I highly recommend him for his innovative fusion style cooking and ability to craft a magical experience!
