Chef Kevin did a good job catering my father-in-law's 60th birthday. Guests were satisfied with the food especially the appetizers and the salmon part of our dinner choice. I would only suggest a little more variety in the flavoring as I felt that the rice, chicken (appetizers and dinner), pulled pork and salmon all had the same seasons and flavor. This was my first catering experience as well so perhaps it was my fault as well but his contract can be a little more detailed regarding what drop off catering services includes. Luckily I called to find out the size of trays the food would be served in to buy the warmers and also bought the serving utensils....I just wasn't prepared with serving platters to put the packaged bread on or for the different boxes of seasoned vegetables.
Chef Serge did a great job preparing hot hors d'oeuvres and mini dessert for 30 guests at our holiday open house last weekend. He arrived in advance with two women to help serve and left our kitchen cleaner than when they arrived. He was respectful of our budget, quick to answer email, and made the whole experience of working together easy and enjoyable. Among the appetizers served: Chef Serge's chicken samosas with delicious (African inspired?) filling, shrimp scorpions with spicy sauce to die for and bread pudding were the big hits of the night. Merci Chef Serge!
Richard was a real pleasure to work with from the first phone call to the end of a very successful party. He was very helpful with his advice on our menu and with the guidance on the beverage purchases for a party our size (50,) He and Linda (the bartender) arrived on time and had the food laid out and the cooking stations and bar set up in plenty of time to start serving some early arriving guests. He circulated with the guests to make sure everyone was happy and had what they wanted and checked in with me throughout the evening to make sure all was going well from my perspective. Richard made crab cakes on the spot and they were a favorite. He also made delicious quesadillas on the spot, as well. His meatballs, chicken satay and stuffed mushrooms were all gobbled up. I overheard a couple of guests praising the peanut sauce and expressing interest in eating it by the spoonful:) All of the dips he provided were delicious as well. And the mini cheesecakes and cookies were also very good. All in all, Richard and Linda gave us a wonderful evening, without having to worry about a thing. To a person, I heard nothing but praise for the service and the food. I would hire Clever Catering again in a heartbeat:)
I can tell you from experience that Top of the City is by far and away the best deal for a 5 star catering experience. Our 6th daughter was just married and I wish we had found Top of the City for the first 5. They gave us the best price with the most elegance and the most complete service than any of the previous caterers we used or interviewed, and we probably have checked out 30 during the past few years. Our guests raved over the appetizers, the dinner was nicely prepared and plentiful. The staff was very professional and friendly. Our wedding reception went smoothly and we were free to enjoy ourselves. Maribel the owner was immediately responsive every step of the way in the planning and flexible in accommodating our special needs and desires. Top of the City gets my vote for the best deal in town.

Candi made the whole experience easy and enjoyable. The food was delicious. I would happily use Potomac Group again!
Olive Express provided an affordable and delicious catering for my engagement party. Everyone LOVED the food and the set up looked fantastic. I would recommend them for any event! The staff is very flexible and willing to work with you on any menu that fits your budget and theme. Additionally, Yvonne is especially responsive to email and phone calls. I am looking forward to using Olive Express again at my friend's baby shower!
They gave a lovely presentation with fresh, tasty appetizers and chicken skewers. The staff was professional and responsive to all guests.
Sandra Danzig demonstrated how to prepare Smoked Salmon Quiche and Winter Fruit Salad for our Senior Citizens group. Both the demonstration and the food were met with rave reviews! To begin, Sandra showed all of us how to make the perfect crust that would not dry out or become soggy. The quiche, which contained three different cheeses as well as smoked salmon and leeks, was savory and delicious without being heavy. The fruit salad of mango, blueberry, and ginger was the perfect compliment to the meal. In addition to learning how to prepare the quiche and fruit salad, we also learned how to clean and cut a leek and the proper way to hold a knife. All in all, we learned a lot and enjoyed a delicious meal too!
We had Catering Reserved cater our company Holiday party and I cannot say enough about how wonderful this company is is. Dianna was so easy to work with. She took care of all my questions, concerns, and needs with phenomenal professionalism. Her patience with me while I was trying to organize a corporate event, waiting on final menu selections, head counts, and final approvals from the owners was unparalleled. Maritza was our event captain for the party and she and her staff were FANTASTIC! The servers and bartender were so sweet and friendly. Their attention to detail and willingness to help with last minute adjustments was such a blessing. The food was INCREDIBLE. Everything from the appetizers to the entrees and sides, right down to dessert, was SO DELICIOUS. I have never had so many employees come to me to express how great the good was. I am so grateful for Catering Reserved, not just for the amazing food, but for the truly fantastic staff, and for the tremendous and sincere effort in helping me put together a great 100+ person event. I cannot wait to have another reason to employ their services and I wholeheartedly recommend them for any event.
We hired Healthy Catering for a party at our home for 80 guests. Nasrin proposed a menu that included appetizers, entrees and desserts. Everything went well on the day of the event. Nasrin went the extra mile by making extra veg dishes that we didn't order. Our guests loved her vegetarian and non-veg dishes. Her food is wholesome and better than most restaurants that we've visited. I would definitely hire Nasrin again.
I was very impressed with the initial contact I had with Mercedes Joe Events. Mercedes was very professional, offered great advice and assistance. I immediately knew that I was in good hands. The food was delicious and the catering servive was excellent. Mercedes Joe Events is an A+ caterer who delivers! Debbie Young
Chef Nikki is the BOMB.COM!! She and her husband Paul are excellent in the kitchen and on the grill... She can cook for me and my husband every day if she wants too, we will never turn her down...😂😂😘😘 Every meal is excellent and tasteful down to the deserts... Nikki is very clean and sanitary, you don't have to worry... She takes her business and license very serious... I definitely recommend her for your next meal, your next desert or your next catering event.
Iyea was a dream come true. We had such a wonderful time at our office holiday party cooking together. Iyea made sure everything was set up and cleaned up too! She walked us through the activity in such fun way, made sure all food items were present and prepped, and brought every single little thing we would need from appetizers all the way to the electronic skillets (no kitchen in our office) all the way to treats!!! She is amazing! thank you so much.
On a whim, I decided to use Thumbtack to find a caterer for my mom's 72nd birthday party. OMG. I am SOOOO glad that I did!! I have planned a number of parties in my day, and I have yet to find one with such great professionalism and wonderful customer service I experienced with AC Catering. First off, they can fix just about anything!! While I had a basic menu in mind, I was forced to rethink things based on the wide variety of options presented by AC Catering. Other caterers wanted me to come up with the menu initially without giving me an idea of their speciality items. With AC Catering, you can get ANYTHING from breakfast, lunch, dinner..including smoked pit grilled items. So, I contacted them with my initial thoughts for a menu. Within 2 days, I received a proposal from the owner, George. Pricing was perfect, even with delivery. Additionally, they provide utensils, plates, condiments, etc. I was pleased. I had to make a last minute change. George was able to accommodate my request with no hassle. I called him just to make sure this change wouldn't pose a problem. He said "No worries. I got you." And, he wasn't kidding. So, party day comes. I'm a bit nervous because I never tasted the food or visited his brick and mortar store. However, the previous reviews from Thumbtack customers were all stellar. After meeting George in person, I totally understand why the reviews are so stellar. George is extremely pleasant and engaging. He arrived on time and was totally prepared to set up everything. He shared some jokes with my brother. Gave compliments to the birthday girl. He even shared the history about his family business. This party was for 50+ people. So, everything had to be right. Let me just say that George and his team didn't disappoint! The greens (with smoked turkey), baked beans and rice were EXCELLENT. I've eaten a lot of rice in my day. But, can I tell you how fabulous the yellow rice is? Very delicious. For meats, I ordered bbq chicken and burgers. Again, everything was wonderful. You would think burgers would just be bland and lacking flavor. NOT AC Catering burgers. They were thick, juicy, and seasoned well. More than enough food was provided. In fact, I had to encourage guests to take home plates of food. The deviled eggs were tasty. However, they were a bit messy due to lots of filling. But, it was totally fine. My guests put the smash on them. All throughout the event, everyone had positive comments and asked "who catered the food?" I didn't hesitate to tell them about George and AC Catering. I HIGHLY recommend them. In fact, I'm trying to find another excuse to celebrate so I can utilize them again!! Thank you, George, for making my mom's birthday so great. You will be hearing from me again. May your catering business continue to grow. God Bless you and your family.
The overall experience was good with Extravagant Affairs Catering Event Rentals and Decor. The Staff was very professional and punctual and the service and decor and set up was excellent. I wish I could give this vendor an Excellent review, but we were asked to pay for a hot box for the food and our food was cold. All of our guest complained about their food being cold. The beef was tough, the chicken was dry and most of the guest didn't even eat their food. The food was very disappointing and it took away from the excellent job that Shovanna and the rest of her team did with pulling together a really beautiful ceremony and reception.
Joanna was a pleasure to work with. The food was delicious. The only unfortunate thing was how much was left over/went to waste. I would suggest cutting your number by 25% if you're going with heavy appetizers. I will use again for sure!
Great experience, found the food to be tasty and service very good. Try them, they are highly recommended!
Columbia Chef arrived at the requested time, the meal was delicious, hot and the presentation was great. We are planning our next catered meal.
Mrs. Wright did a wonderful job catering my wedding on May 28th 2011. My wedding was 3 years ago and I still have family members come and tell me how good the food and service was. My reception dinner was buffet style and even though those types of dinners can get a little chaotic sometimes, she was able to keep every thing in order and running smoothly. The food was delicious and there was plenty of it. Everything had a wonderful flavor to it and was seasoned perfectly. She had a loving sprirt that carred into her food. I will definitely use her services again and have already recommended her to co workers, friends, and family.
Chris prepared a superior dinner for my husband and me last week. I especially liked the scallop appetizer but everything was beyond expectation. Thanks to our daughter in Brooklyn for arranging this lovely evening for us.
Eric and his team did an amazing job at our wedding this past September 12th. The appetizers were phenomenal, many of our guests were raving about it, the buffet was simple which is what we had requested but everything as cooked to perfection. Thank you so much!!
