Small dinner party for 7 - everything was perfect, from prep time to hors d'oeuvres to main course to clean up. Chef Rich Mancini and assistant Cathy DiGiovanni were engaging but not intrusive, professional, creative and made optimal use of somewhat limited utensils in my kitchen. Every single menu item was fresh, delicious, perfectly proportioned and presented. Could not have been better!!
Great food! would have given 5 stars but I ordered a special plate for my friend who has food allergies and is gluten free we never got the order that we paid for. I was also charged additional fees that were never agreed upon in the original contract.
We hired Ravi and his team to cater our wedding and they were incredible. We had a great tasting with Ravi and his head chef and we knew their food would be a hit. When we arrived at cocktail hour, the appetizers were already gone! People loved them. Thankfully, Ravi and his servers had set some aside for the wedding party without us even asking. His staff worked hard serving our guests and tending bar. They were fun and incredibly hard working. We would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a creative catering company that is capable of customizing an unforgettable menu. The whole process was very easy and Ravi and his company were able to take care of everything we needed without hesitation. Thank you!
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!!
I've used Just a Bite several times to cater parties. The owner is extremely easy to work with and made great menu suggestions. My events had themes and the food was perfectly matched to the theme. The food was beautifully presented and tasted great. I know things are made from scratch with quality ingredients and you can taste the difference. Nothing makes a hostess feel better than having guests say positive things about the food, and that happens every time I use this caterer. Most importantly, the owner delivered beyond my expectations and stayed within my budget. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this caterer to friends and family.
Chef Karen is not only a creative and expert Chef she is delightful. Her menu was inventive from my eyes but it all went together in a very healthy and delicious way! She answered all my questions expertly AND even got me to eat beets... a first, they were good made the way she made them! Thank YOU, Chef Karen!
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.
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.
Kristin is the best caterer! We connected about 3 weeks before my Housewarming party for 40 guests. Not only was she able to hire a bartender and server, she also supplied a bartender table! She worked with me to make an absolutely delicious meal (Southern/Cajun) and her signature charcuterie board is a true show-stopper! If I could give more than 5 stars I would! Will definitely plan to use her for all my catering needs.
They were very responsive to requests. He was prompt. The food was very good quality and fresh. He gave unique twist to the dishes. Everyone had good things to say about the food. I found the food delicious and appealing in appearance. The prices are comparable to other caterers. I would recommend.
Heidi is amazing and so accommodating! She was so helpful and reliable and the food was terrific!!!
Chef Bailey and Bailey's Catering always does a great job with food for our church. Very professional and reasonable with rates. Savory tasting dishes and enjoyable flavor profiles!
Mikey has been a great addition! He's very creative, responsive, professional and is very flexible! We've enjoyed having him in our home and his meals are delicious!
Catered food at work on a Saturday, food was here when it was promised and tasted awesome. Would recommend to anyone who needs some good BBQ catering.
I hired this catering company on a short notice for my husband's 50th birthday party, we had over 70 guest plus guest. This caterer did a amazing job. The food was great and the steak tacos were out of this world, l literally ate four. :) We look forward to working with Jessica in the future for our family events.
PhylClay's Catering was very professional and made my guests feel like they were having a home cooked meal.
Chef Wood prepared a generous spread of heavy appetizers for my birthday party. Food was absolutely delicious and creative. Beautiful presentation, ample portions. Professional service and friendly deameanor with all guests. Everyone raved about the catering and he left with several referrals.
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.
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!
Catered a birthday brunch for my mother. Food was amazing and all the guest couldn’t stop talking about it.
