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.

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.

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 :)

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.

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!

The overall experience was exceptional and working with Maya was truly an amazing experience! The staff was professional and the food was delicious! Everything about the service provided was memorable and would recommend them to anyone needing a quality caterer. They took the stress off and allowed us to focus on the wedding. I can’t express how much I appreciate their service and how we were able to enjoy the wedding. Again, a big thank you to BellaRu Catering!

Josh was the head chef for our wedding of about 215 people and he absolutely killed it! He took care of everything, a real full service experience, so we could focus on more important things, like getting married! The food he made was absolutely incredible. Marinated chicken breast, avocado salad, chipotle roasted potatoes, you name it! Many wedding guests personally told us that it was the best wedding meal they had ever had. Some even said it was one of their favorite meals ever, and wanted the recipe. I give a complete recommendation for Josh. His professionalism, his talent, and his personality really make him one of a kind.

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
