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.

Epicurean catered a "Girls' Night In" at my home. The food was phenomenal. Extensive menu options made it virtually impossible for my guests to be dissatisfied. In fact, they continued to eat throughout the evening!! I will be hosting several fundraising events this year and definitely plan to use Epicurean Catering Service in the very near future!!

Owner Richard Cohen is unflaggingly genial, very hands on, and overall a delight to work with. He obviously wanted us to have exactly what we wanted and was ready with suggestions from his years of experience when we were undecided. We have no kitchen at our venue; so he brought in everything, with only a staging area provided by us. The food truly was delicious and beautifully presented. Hot foods were hot, and cold foods were cold. His servers and bartender were pleasant, accommodating, and professional. All included - not just the food but tables, linens, plates, napkins, glassware, everything - he kept our once in a lifetime (50th anniversary) event within our requested budget. I highly recommend Clever Catering. No downside, no reservations. Of course I'd hire them again!

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.

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!

Nasrin and her crew were a pleasure to work with! She went the extra mile with a few of our guest’s dietary requirements/food allergies. All of the food was perfectly prepared and ready when my guests were hungry. That was the best food that we ever had with catering company and be that delicious. I recommend to anyone especially for Middle Eastern type of events. Everyone was well fed and pleasantly pleased with the food and service! Wonderful food from wonderful people!

With only 4 days of notice, Catering Reserved put together a proposal, several communications back and forth to make sure our menu was suited to our needs, a walk through of the venue, all the while being very attentive to our goals even given the time constraint! The event turned out just beautifully and the entire staff at Catering Reserved did a great job at the event. I recommended them without hesitation.

What a great event! Brian hosted our after party, wedding reception. The food was fabulous and his attention to detail is amazing. He was chef and host, catering to our guests and having fun. If you are looking for great food and a fun event, I highly recommend Smoker's Delight BBQ and Brian Israel, looking forward to hiring him for our fall event. Terri Fleck

I genuinely can’t say enough good things about this business. I hired AC Catering for two events I held in June and July 2017. Everything was excellent! I was beyond happy with everything from the food, to the services, to the people I interacted with during the planning phase and the actual events. This small, family owned business actually exceeded my expectations. They have an extensive menu to choose from which allowed me to tailor both events’ meals appropriately. The pricing was great and the amount of food I received was more than enough. AC Catering received many compliments for the quality of their food at both of my events. I took a risk and hired them without having tasted any of their food, but I have to say there was no need for worry. The food was also delicious! Both my guests and I enjoyed every bite. The serve and clean up service was also top notch. George Sullivan and his staff were extremely attentive to my needs during my banquet. They helped to ensure that the dinner ran smoothly, and cleanup was quick and efficient. I can't leave this review without noting that it was a great pleasure working with George Sullivan (principal owner/operator) when coordinating my needs. He was very responsive to the myriad of questions I had, extremely flexible as I proposed changes for my event, and just an extremely nice guy. I am so glad I found this business. I will definitely be using AC Catering if I have any catering needs in the future.

Best value you could get in a wedding catering company! Quick basic info on my wedding since yours might be different: Late May wedding in Maryland, 7-hour reception with cocktail hour and dinner, approx. 100 guests, Manor, garden & tented reception setting, buffet dinner including a mix of food and drinks representing the cultures of the bride & groom (salvadoran, thai, new orleans, baltimore). Just two days after our wedding day I am feeling so good about the decision we made in booking Top of the City Catering. Maribel and her team were absolutely fantastic and we received soooo many compliments on our food, desserts, and cocktails, which were all provided by Top of the City. They had also done a great job of setting up décor for the guest tables, around the venue, and for the buffet and bar areas. In addition, the service throughout the day and night was phenomenal and we (bride & groom) always felt taken care of. For planning, we wanted a rustic, elegant feeling and they did a great job of presenting us ideas that were aligned with our vision. Top of the City Catering is a smaller catering business, but that does not make it any less in quality. When we were first looking into Top of the City I was a little leery because it was much more affordable and it usually is said, "You get what you pay for," but in this case that was NOT true at all. Maribel and her team are very responsive in communication, are very open and welcoming to your ideas and direction, and will always give suggestions from their expertise but still respect your wishes should you want something different. I really hope that Top of the City will gain momentum in growing its business and gaining the respect it deserves. Don't let the size of the company distract you from the amazing service, quality of food, flexibility, and affordable price you will get from Top of the City catering. Get a consultation with them and see for yourself!

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 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.

Mr. Frazier provided exceptional service for our private event. He was incredibly easy to work with, accommodating in every way possible, completely understood exactly what we wanted and delivered top rate service. The food was wonderfully prepared and excellent. He has a wonderful attitude, great skills, and is a complete professional. I would not hesitate to recommend him or to contract for his services again. Thank you so much for all you did!
