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.

Well well well, I'm not sure where to begin. Chef Serge is FABULOUS! His food is phenomenal and he is very creative with his menu. I had such a hard time narrowing down my selection. His personality is upbeat, lively and FUN! And all while cooking amazing food! I emphatically recommend Chef Serge to anyone looking for a CHEF, a cook, a caterer, anything you can use him for, do it! He also brought an assistant who was equally as pleasant and amazing.

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:)

Veronique's cooking capabilities are exquisite! She catered an event I attended and the food was phenomenal. Not only was the food phenomenal, but also, the representation of the food was magnificent. There was just enough food for everyone, and Veronique's personal appearance was well suited for her business, as well as the occasion. I commend her and I recommend her to anyone seeking catering. Five stars🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

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 were very cordial and very professional, and went out of their way to work with us to accommodate our individual needs on very short notice (we literally hired them the day before). They were also highly sensitive to the fact that the catering was for a memorial service for an immediate family member, and were extremely helpful in choosing an appropriate buffet to fit our budget. In the end, they were kind enough to drop the fees for the last hour because we ended up not needing it, which they technically didn't have to do and was much appreciated. They arrived on time and had everything set up and ready to go when we came back to the venue after the burial service. The food was very good and well-presented, with complements by the guests, and the staff was seamless in doing their work. We would definitely use this company again.

I LOVE the healthy catering company, I've ordered from them multiple times and not once have I been disappointed in the slightest. You can see and taste that every dish is made with the tastiest spices and combinations of foods and it always tastes amazing. The food usually becomes the topic of conversation for my gatherings because nothing is mor convenient than being able to have finger food as well as full dishes. on top of that, they are very punctual and are a pleasure to deal with. I wouldn't think of ordering from another company after ordering from the healthy catering company!!

I enjoyed working with Dianna Gilbert of Catering Reserved because on my initial inquiry for caterers on thumbtack, she responded immediately. She listened to my requests and provided the menu I wanted. Ms Gilbert responded right away to any questions or concerns I had because this was all being planned from out of state. On the night of the dinner, the food arrived on time and was set up as she promised and I received many many compliments on the menu from my guests.

Ardmore Carryout is amazing! If you have not tried their food, you are missing out on one of the best kept secrets in Maryland. I have used them many times for my clients, and they have always been professional and prompt with their delivery. The pies they make...I'll just say you'll be tempted to eat the entire thing in one sitting. Mouth watering!!

How on earth can a business have a perfect 5-star rating? That's what I was wondering when I looked at the reviews for Top of the City Catering. In this modern world when everyone is demanding, and people will gladly leave you a scathing review for the slightest offense, I was amazed that this business was pushing ahead with a solid 5 stars every time. Working with them for my wedding, I soon found out that it is because their service is worth around 100 stars, and there isn't a rating scale for this level of professionalism. 5 stars? Ha! Top of the City catering should be named Top of the World catering because you won't find better FOOD or SERVICE anywhere. 1. Communication is impeccable. I never, ever, had to worry about whether or not I would hear back from Maribel. She was easy to correspond with and provided expert advice. 2. Pricing was extremely transparent. We went over several versions of price breakdowns for the services and nothing was ever a surprise. Everything was clearly listed line by line and no phony charges were ever included. 3. Quality of the food was incredible. Not overloaded with salt, grease or sauces to mask a subpar product. The food was expertly prepared, in generous portions, without cutting corners or employing marked up cheap tricks. Simply amazing, fresh food. 4. Professionalism of the onsite staff was amazing. Each person was calm and knew exactly what to do, no confusion or stalling. And everyone was extremely cordial and polite! The staff was in and out quickly and invisibly, making sure everything was perfect at all times. Maribel and her team were an absolute pleasure to work with over the several months leading up to the wedding. Its not every day that you GLADLY write a check for a service you received. Disappointment is not part of their business plan! One last thing: one of my wedding guests came up to me during the evening, grabbed my arm and said "The food is amazing!!....Oh, and congratulations!!"

I have been to more than 20 countries, 35 states and I am not sure how many cities. I can, without hesitation, tell you that the Salmon meal was the best I ever had. Impress your boss, girlfriend or others by suggesting this meal and they will surely thank you. I will try all the meals soon and report back.

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.

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Chef Jackie. She is a delightful person, who also did a lovely job cooking, serving, and cleaning up for a small (4 people) dinner party. She arrived late, but did call to let us know, and she was ready when the guest of honor and her partner arrived. The presentation was nice, and the food was good. Her chocolate mousse was outstanding! She also did a great job of cleaning up. This is not a knock, but she doesn't stand on ceremony, so if you are looking for very formal service, this isn't it (which fit my style just fine). I definitely recommend her for catering a party, and expect she would be a wonderful teacher for a cooking class.

I was asked to complete the task of finding a caterer for breakfast for a corporate meeting of 80 people within 4 days and to have them deliver the food before 6am. Thomas Franklin at Columbia Chef Catering was the 3rd business I had spoke to regarding my function. He was so pleasant and when he said yes to the 5:30am drop off I was sold!! Thank you so much for all of your assistance in making our function so much more pleasurable.
