Hired to do a surprise 40th for my wife. Totally last minute. I am thankful Chef Rich came with his crew and ran the show. We hired him for a heavy appetizer and cocktail party. He handled everything. He had a large selection from various menus and allowed me to customize our night. I can't recommend him and his crew any stronger than to say his food was amazing. A serious chef here with a crew that knows how to handle a private party. They disappeared into the night leaving my house and kitchen looking like they were never there. I didn't lift a finger. Except to eat, drink, and be merry. I'm hiring him again for any event we do.
Allen catered a party of about 80 employees for us, he came in set-up and served some great food with a wonderful sense of humor just made the luncheon that much better. I am positive I will be using him again.
Ravi and his team did an amazing job of servicing our New Years Eve party with 120 guests! The service was outstanding and the food was delicious! I will definitely recommend Chic Chef Catering to my friends and family in the future. Above and beyond expectations!
We had a college graduation/ birthday party for our son with a large crowd anticipated, as a backyard, garden party. Inglenook is a local cater who, in my opinion, well outdid any catering service I've experienced! Our chosen menu was absolutely outstanding. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it and I was very pleased at the generous portions, our guest gladly and comfortably returned for seconds. I was also very pleased that he was able to accommodate food allergies some of my guests have. If you have dietary requirements, just let him know. The food arrived on time , it was set up for me, and there wasn't thing for me to do but enjoy my guests, even though I was simply ordering drop off service. The next time I need a caterer, Joseph will always be my turn to guy! I highly recommend (everything we ordered...) however the tenderloin and chicken were perfect, the stuffed mushrooms all but vanished and the roasted vegetable our outstanding! Thank you for providing excellent food to our event and and outstanding service! Looking forward to out next big event!!
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 :)
Small cocktail birthday party
Chef Mike and his team prepared amazing appetizers for a cocktail party at my house. Our guests loved the food – the savory waffles topped with fried chicken and spicy honey were a crowd favorite! Chef Mike arrived on time; got everything organized; prepared and served the food and drinks; and cleaned the kitchen spotless before finishing up. He and his team made hosting a party so easy. I’ll definitely be hiring them again!
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.
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.
Kristen Haynes did a fabulous job for our holiday cocktail party. She and her server worked so hard nonstop and also did a great job of cleaning up. The food was delicious, sophisticated and beautifully presented. Our guests were all raving about it. I would definitely hire her again. Julie Lundborg
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.
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 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.
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
We hired three-legged tacos for a private party. It was outdoors and casual, the guests knew there were tacos but did not know what to expect. The whole night there was a line for tacos, for seconds, for thirds. People did not stop getting up to get more food. It was so delicious. Most of our guests had never had some of these flavors before, never mind the combinations of flavors. The whole thing was just great. As the three-legged tacos crew was leaving, our guests just spontaneously applauded. Over tacos. They are that good. Now we are finding reasons to have Sam and his crew come back.
We used J's for a block party and he was great. Even though the weather didn't cooperate, he soldiered on and gave us an amazing meal. The tacos (steak, chicken and pork) were delicious!!! Everyone loved it. I would definitely recommend J's for any of your catering needs.
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!
Great Experience! The food was awesome and everyone at the party loved it!! Would definitely use again.
We had an office party for 75 people and Taste of Heaven Catering was willing to make sure all our needs were met. The food was HEAVENLY, we will be using her again again and AGAIN for all our needs.
