This was the first time I've used a service on Thumbtack. Heck, this was the first time I've had a personal chef prepare and cook a meal in my own home. Both were great experiences. Diane contacted me prior to our set date which was Valentines day. Her selection of meats and sides were amazing. I'm glad I took her recommendations. It's kind of like telling a painter how to paint... Some times you have to sit back and enjoy the beauty in what a professional plans for you. Diane, delivered a phenomenal meal and it was hands down the best Valentines day dinner my wife and I have ever had. Thank you so much Diane. I will be in touch next time I need your services.

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.

Serge catered for our office holiday party. He made a grilled romaine salad, chicken roulade with potatoes and mixed vegetables, and a chocolate tart. Everything was delicious, I was very impressed! I had never had catering done for our office parties before (sadly, we have always just done pizza or something similar), but this was definitely much better for a special occasion, and very reasonably priced. I would not hesitate to use Pure Kitchen Culinary Concept again!

JUST HIRE DANIEL! Where do I begin to describe the services provided by Daniel? He was PROFESSIONAL, COURTEOUS, HELPFUL and JUST GREAT He should give lessons in "BarTending with Excellent Customer Service." #VERY TASTY COCKTAILS #DELECTABLE MOCKTAILS Daniel visited the site a few days before hand to decide how he would set up his station. He took all the stress out of deciding what signature drinks we should serve, based on theme, budget, number of guests expected... He provided a list of what we would need to purchase based on scale of party. He hand makes fresh juices as mixers and sets up a thoughtful, first rate display. HIS SERVICE IS SECOND TO NONE He promised that he would arrive 2 hours before the event to set up and was here an extra hour EARLY. His input and assistance is invaluable. His interactions with our guest was what one would expect at a 7 Star Hotel or Restaurant; he was engaging and appropriate. Seriously, no one else should be a contender for your event. If you want to enjoy your event and have guests call you the following day to compliment the services provided by your bartender, who they have "Officially Adopted" USE THE SERVICES OF F&Btainment by Daniel

We needed drop-off catering for 60 people with short notice (about 2 weeks prior to the event). Carla was our point of contact for this order, and she was wonderful - very responsive and flexible. She worked with us to craft exactly the menu we needed for our event. Key Ingredients delivered the food on time to the venue on Capitol Hill for a reasonable flat fee. The food was tasty, though I found the chicken skewers rather dry (this could have been due in part to the commute from Gaithersburg to DC). They have an extensive menu, however, so maybe the items we ordered just weren't what they do best. Our guests enjoyed the food and we are so grateful that Key Ingredients was able to provide catering for our event!

A GREAT dining experience from beginning to end. Chris is the ultimate professional, displaying extraordinary gourmet cooking skills blended with an engaging personality. Well before our special evening, I was given an opportunity to convey personal preferences and address any food limitations that might need to be considered. A beautiful seasonal menu was then provided, accommodating my general preferences, from which, we selected an amazing multi-course meal! Chris was right on time and established the perfect tone for a great evening to follow, inviting us to sit back and relax to becoming more involved in following his every move, if we'd like. We took advantage of the opportunity to watch a master at work and ask any questions that might help us to become any bit more skilled in the kitchen, as well. Chris' enthusiasm for the culinary world and vast knowledge about food is contagious and his dietary and nutritional tips incredibly informative. This was a welcome education on multiple levels. The beautiful presentation of each course was artwork, and our appreciation was only outdone by the delectable depth of its incredible taste. As delicious as the meal was and as informative and fun it was to watch it's preparation, Chris is simply an extremely nice, generous and caring person to invite into your home. For a unique dining experience where a gourmet restaurant, if feels, comes to the comfort of your home, rather than having to make the effort to go out to it, I KNOW you'll enjoy, as much as we did, the talents and charm of Chris Spears and a very special night you'll always remember.

We were delighted! Chef Veronique MacRae, Exec Chef took care of everything. We were celebrating my Father-in-law's life. LTC John Burrer was laid to rest with his wife at Arlington National Cemetery on the 72nd anniversary of D-Day and LTC Burrer was a WWII and Korean War Veteran. We wanted a celebration of his life and food is a huge part of living. Chef Veronique was quick to understand what we wanted and she delivered. We had some idea about the number of guest we would have, but I was concerned that we would not know exactly how many could attend. Chef Veronique told me how she plans for events like this and she did not disappoint. We had plenty of food. Our service at Arlington started earlier then the scheduled time because we had all arrived early. So, that meant we returned to the Marriott Courtyard Rosslyn about an hour ahead of schedule. Chef Veronique had just started to set up when we showed up. She did not panic and continued to do her job in an expedited manner and had us ready to go in no time. There was a great variety of food for our guest to choose from. It was all very tasty and certainly exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend The Tasty Alternative. The food was great, the service was perfect, and the price was exceptional. Respectfully, Dennis L. Winston Salem, NC

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!

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 contracted with Matthew Wertman to prepare a "high end restaurant quality" meal for a dinner party for 10 that I was hosting at my home in Southern Maryland. Matthew put forward a great menu suggestion that I altered only slightly and was very responsive in setting up the dinner and working through logistics. On the evening of the meal --- right before Matthew arrived --- our oven failed. Matthew was undeterred and incredibly resourceful --- using our stove top and my outside grill to get the meal on without a hitch. He came fully prepared, worked quickly and without fuss, made the 3-course meal, served it to the guests and cleaned the kitchen before he left. Most importantly, the food was FANTASTIC --- exceeding all my expectations. I would highly recommend Matthew for such an occasion to anyone. Very easy to work with, very friendly and fairly priced. He made our event enjoyable, memorable and hassle-free.

I loved everything about working with Dianna of Catering reserved! From start to finish she delivered everything she promised, including delicious food! She was prompt, creative, and thorough in her proposal; she worked with me to refine my needs and I was very comfortable with my final decisions; Her pricing was affordable and fair and most importantly she promised there would really be enough food to feed everyone and there was! She promised it would be delivered on time (it was), that her staff would set it all up nicely without my help (he did!) and that it would be hot and delicious (and it was!). Nothing was forgotten; nothing was omitted. The serving utensils were there, the sterno, and the clear containers were perfect for serving the food in. I didn't need china serving dishes for my event, but Dianna does offer that and if my next event needs Catering Reserved's full service, I won't hesitate to use it. (Food plus waitstaff for setup and clean up.) I've never met Dianna in person, and I never tasted her food prior to hiring her for my very important event, but from our first conversation I just knew I could trust her, and I was right. I highly recommended her! Thanks to Catering Reserved, I got to visit with my guests and totally enjoy my "after-the-wedding" party.

Superb Service! My interactions with MJE Catering were pleasant, professional and satisfying. Mercedes Jo was creative and open to my special requests. We arranged a taste testing which was plentiful and delicious! The day of my event, MJE was prompt, courteous and generous. I highly recommend MJE for your event; particularly, if you want affordable, delicious food, and friendly service.

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.

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!

Veronica has recently started working for our family and we are very pleased. She has cleaned our home twice and both times Veronica has been on time, professional, conscientious, and has left our home looking wonderful. I am very particular with how I like things done around the house and Veronica has been very accommodating to my needs. I am confident in time once she learns my quirks I will be able to change my rating to EXCELLENT!
