I couldn't have been happier with our experience with Chef Most Wanted. It was my first time hiring a personal chef. Right from the start, Chef Rich was great to work with. I appreciated his prompt and clear communication on how things would work, and his help picking the menu. I had him do a gourmet breakfast for family and guests as part of a special birthday weekend for my husband. The breakfast was a huge hit! The food was fresh, beautifully presented and absolutely delicious! At the end of the weekend many people said the breakfast was their favorite part of the celebration. We will definitely use Chef Rich again, and hopefully soon!
North Island Catering was a pleasure to work with. They did a great job helping keep our Non-profit organization within budget while still providing excellent service and food. Breakfast for dinner was a great new hit at our yearly fundraiser for Catholic Assistance Missions. I highly recommend their homemade quiches and coffee cakes. They are more than willing to work with dietary/allergy concerns as well. There are things I would change to our menu based off of what was leftover at the end of our night, but that is understandable since this was the first time working with them and offering this type of food. We will gladly work with them in the years to come. Thank you so much Allen and Christina for helping us with our event.
Trying to plan a banquet from a thousand miles away, in a problematic downtown Chicago location, is not an easy task. Luckily for me, I found Ravi at Chic Chef Catering here on Thumbtack. Ravi took care of everything, handling all the location's inherent difficulties competently and professionally. He stayed with his staff for the entire event, and made sure all of our 80+ guests were happy and well-fed. More importantly, I didn't need to worry about the caterers and the food and all the rest of it, because it was all in his capable hands. I could instead focus on our guests. We chose a Mediterranean menu--with a vegetarian option to meet some of our guests' needs. Everything was delicious and there was plenty of it! Many thanks and much appreciation to Ravi and his crew! We would absolutely use 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!!
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!
Loretta was really easy to work with. She was flexible and adjusted the menu to my needs. I got feedback from my guests that the food looked and tasted good. I would strongly recommend her.
Chef David is fabulous! He catered a dinner party at my house for 14 people. The food was delicious. I was impressed that he was able to accommodate all of the dietary needs of my guests and come up with a killer menu. He was laid back and easy to work with. I would definitely hire Chef David again.
Lindsey was a pleasure to work with. We hired her to provide meals during a particularly busy week. She offered us healthy and delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner options that we thoroughly enjoyed! She was also very accommodating of both our tastes, avoiding certain foods we didn't like, and our schedules when it came to arranging delivery of the meals. We would highly recommend her and look forward to working with her again in the future!
KIRK CHEF IS AMAZING! For Christmas our son and daughter-in-law gave us a gift certificate for a private home chef experience. Chef Kirk called us 4 days before our scheduled evening to ask us our food preferences and/or food allergies. The evening of, Chef arrived on time with everything he needed to prepare a 6 course gourmet meal. The only things we needed to provide were flatware and plates. He gave us the option of sitting at our kitchen peninsula or in our dining room. We chose the interactive experience without a second thought. We watched Chef prepare a starter of crab cakes with capers, roasted garlic, lemon and fresh herbs served with cranberry walnut bread. The next course was a salad with roasted pear and pomegranate. Then we had seared sea scallops. Keep in mind that we have not gotten to the entree yet. The main course was blackened salmon with plantains and crispy kale. Dessert was a chocolate mousse with vanilla panna cotta and mango gelato. The transitions between courses were seamless. THIS WAS A 5 STAR MEAL!
This was my first time hiring a caterer, and I was not disappointed. This was also my first time using Thumbtack. Had never even heard of it before googling “caterers near me”. Carol of Food with Flair did a wonderful job catering a family outdoor BBQ at my home for my dad’s 90th birthday. We had 25 people in attendance, and many commented on how good the food was. She was very responsive from the moment she and I were matched through Thumbtack, all the way through my event. She helped plan the meal, making suggestions on food items that were popular at other BBQs she had catered; arrived promptly the day of the event with much of the food prep completed and the remainder completed once she arrived; provided the warming trays, serving dishes, and serving utensils; grilled the meat (hamburgers and chicken) on my Weber grill; set up the serving table; had the meal ready in a timely fashion; put away leftovers for me; and left my kitchen clean. She also was able to work with dietary restrictions. She offered to provide paper goods and make arrangements for other supplies (e.g. canopy), which I declined. She brought two pineapple upside down cakes (my Dad’s favorite), and because we had neglected to discuss which of us would provide the candles, she decided to play it safe and brought a “9” & a “0” candle for one of the cakes. For the other cake she had a friend create a diecut that read “Happy 90th Birthday” in colors that coordinated with the cake. It was a nice, thoughtful surprise. While I had thought about asking whether she offered tastings, I didn’t due to the small size of my party; the short time frame between booking the party and the event itself; and her experience as an executive chef. I trusted that the food would be good, and it was. But I can’t share whether she offers tastings or not. My husband and I were very pleased with the service Carol provided and would definitely use her again.
Kristin has catered many events for me...from intimate family holiday dinners to a buffet for over 100 people. She is very professional and fun to work with. But most importantly her food is delicious and the presentation is outstanding. I've known Kristin for at least 10 years. I highly recommend her!
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 wanted to have a simple afternoon party without the formality of a sit-down meal, and Diana fit the bill perfectly. She made sure there was plenty of food and variety, including appetizers, lasagna and sweets trays. Many people complimented me on the food, and it was a great success. Best of all, I didn't have to prepare any food, so I was free to enjoy my own party! I've already given out her information to guests who asked.
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.
It was perfect! On-time delivery and set up. A delicious, abundant, of food. Dessert was amazing. Definitely would use again!
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.
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.
My husband and I worked with Mya through Chic Chef Catering and loved her immediately! She was really amazing to work with and helped a lot with our budget. She was very responsive with communication and very professional through everything. We would definitely recommend working with Mya with any event. She makes you feel like her family and is always willing to cater to anything you need. Great personality and great communication!
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.
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!
