I had the pleasure of working with Mike, Culeen and Matt for my engagement party a few weeks back and it was a great experience! From the first call with Mike to the cleanup at the end of the party, I could not have asked for a better experience. I will admit that planning is not my forte and with just over a week before the engagement party, I still needed to hire a caterer to help feed 15 guests for the event! I was lucky enough to connect with Mike who listened to the dietary restrictions of the guests and helped plan an incredible menu. He went so far as to combine my fiancee's favorite dessert (cheesecake) and mine ( creme brulee) and put together an amazing combination of a creme brulee cheesecake! Anyone who has gone through an engagement understands the nerves that can arise up until the question is popped! Needless to say I was a bit antsy the few hours leading up to the event and figured i'd head up to the venue and check things out (it was held at the party room in our apartment.) When checking out the venue I realized I had gotten something incredibly wrong....there was NO STOVE in our club room!! I frantically called and texted Mike to let him know and he said not to worry about it and that he would figure it out. He kept to his word and somehow used sternos to cook our meals....and believe me when I say everything came out better than I could have imagined!! Mike and team were lifesavers and helped make the night run much smoother than I could have hoped for. Rest assured I'll be using Cater-2-U again for my future events! Thank you Mike, Culeen and Matt!

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.

Dwight prepared an amazing meal for my husband's 40th birthday. He was professional and accommodating. He covered every detail and gave us a premium dining experience in the comfort of our home. I'd definitely recommend Dwight to others and look to him for our next event.

I wanted to have an amazing home-cooked meal for my girlfriend but I'm a terrible cook so I hired Chef Katie to come out. She asked some questions about what my girlfriend and I like and don't like and was so easy to work with. We started out with a cheese plate, then - probably my favorite item ever - these blue cheese & zucchini bites. After that, the main course was steak with bacon & peppers & blue cheese and a side of stuffed mushrooms. Finally, for dessert, Katie made this incredible exploding lava cake for desserts. OH! I almost forgot - she chose some great wines to pair with each course! I can't say what an amazing experience this was and I can't recommend Katie enough. I'm sorry I didn't do a good job of taking pictures- I was too in the moment.

Mad City Chefs catered a meal for 35 persons. The in person interview clinched the deal. Ethan presented a very professional plan that proved to be perfect in it's execution. Not only was the food exceptional (notable the asparagus tarts, crab cakes and chocolate treats), but the presentation was superb. Our guests were awed.

I have greatly enjoyed every one of over 20 meals prepared for church groups of 25-40 people at a time over the past year by the owner of D'licious Treats, Delores Dowling, and her assistants. The variety was great, the food delicious and healthy, and the service was reliable, on-time and friendly. Home style cooking at its best!

Chef Peter recently catered my wedding. My wife and I were amazed with how wonderful the day went and of all the headaches and problems we encountered there was not one thing that was even a flicker of a worry where Chef Peter was concerned. Professional, kind and very easy to work with. I wish I could get married a second time just so I could enjoy all of the wonderful food they prepared again.

My experience in working with Chef Tony was wonderful. He shows up when he says he will be there and works hard all day long preparing your meals. He is very organized and he brings all his equipment with him for cooking. He cleans up everything before he leaves and everything is spotless but the beauty is I have meals ready for me to eat with no clean up. What man does that today. The food is so good and we enjoyed them all. In addition, the sides are just as tasty and I love that we have sides to our meals. Always a challenge to do everything yourself with little time in the schedule. He provide a lot of variety and all very tasty meals. Chef Tony is out to please you and has a great work ethic but also one of the nicest people and is a very trustworthy person. If you want something specific he will make it happen. Happy eating!
