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!!

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!

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.

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.

Let me start by saying read this to the end. Very honest review with positives and negatives: On a really short notice, Maya did a great job in working with me for our reception. I was annoying but she answered all of my calls, Emails, and put my mind at ease. I was busy trying to be a good host, so unfortunately I didn’t get to try the food. However, by the overwhelming response we got from the guests about how great it was, I would definitely recommend using this service. Also I plan on using it again for future events. The only negative I could even mention we had a miscommunication about ice. I was going to give it 4 stars because of that but it was an honest mistake. Also I was panicked last minute and was making mountains out of molehills. At any rate, I’m pretty picky about service and punctuality, you won’t be disappointed. I HIGHLY SUGGEST USING THIS SERVICE!

Highly personable ordering and customer service. Delivery drivers even have high tech software on their phones making everything really smooth as it updated us when the driver left Fratto's to come here...so cool! We found our new corporate caterer. Amazing work and stress free!

We had Black Fodder cater our wedding reception last month. Their coffee was phenomenal!! It was the best cold brew we have ever tasted. All of our guest were raving about how good it was. The high quality teas (they were phenomenal too) really added to the experience since not all of our guests were coffee drinkers. They definitely thought of all the details! Their presentation was professional yet down-to-earth, from the glass wear to the full service bar that they brought to the venue. We highly recommend them for any event. You won't be disappointed.

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.

The menu flowed perfectly as did the actual food set-up. They say you eat with your eyes first and therefore your food should be pleasing to the eye. It was great to see that the food not only looked amazing, it was delicious. A1 Event Catering provided a wonderful experience!
