My job decided to put me in charge of catering our fall employee appreciation event. I wasn’t even sure where to start since I was not familiar with any caterers in the Montgomery County area. So I decided to go to the trusty internet to start my search. I came across thumbtack which is a great site by the way. You basically enter what you are looking for and like magic you start to receive quotes from different caterers in your area. Chef Kevin Reed was very prompt with his response and also included a sample menu with his quote which I thought was excellent. We conversed over email for a while and I was convinced this was the man for the job. I also was adamant about supporting a local small black business. The day of the event, He arrived on time along with his help. I told him what our theme would be and he nailed the set up perfectly. A beautiful fall theme was laid out in our employee lounge right before my eyes. The Chef and his staff were very personable and pleasant to work with. The food was hot, very good and healthy. My coworkers were very impressed with the food and service. I would definitely recommend his services. Hopefully we will be working together again soon on our company Holiday event. We have over 180 employees here and he was able to provide plenty of food and we had lots of leftovers. Kevin is top notch. Highly recommended.

Chef Serge and his sous chef did a fantastic job preparing s three course dinner for an 80th birthday celebration for my mother-in-law. Our guests ranged in age from 4-86 and Chef Serge did a terrific job in helping us craft a menu that was pleasing to the wide range of palates present. He also brought plates and silverware for an additional fee which made everything so much simpler for us. The food was delicious. We had both fish and chicken available and both were cooked beautifully with the right amount of seasoning. He surprised us with an amuse bouche that left all of us looking forward to the rest of the meal. Chef Serge incorporated fresh seasonal ingredients into our meal. It was a blistering hot day so we all appreciated his use of summer fruit and vegetables. The ratatouille--was fabulous! We were particularly impressed by Chef Serge's friendly demeanor and how patient and engaged he was with the children. The kids really enjoyed watching the meal being prepared and had lots of questions to ask. Chef Serge and his souse chef answered them all and kept the children engaged. In the words of my nephew, "He's a great Chef!" We are so happy that we hired Chef Serge and Pure Kitchen Culinary Concept. We were able to relax and thoroughly enjoy ourselves and we hope to do it again soon.

I hired Esther to cater a dinner party to celebrate our Mom's 80th birthday. From the first encounter, Esther was very accommodating. We were expecting 50 guests, some with food allergies ranging from nuts to shell fish. Esther assured me that she would create a menu that would be elegant and delicious. And did she deliver! The event took place on 12/31/2016. The food was amazing! She sent her employee, Crystal, to handle the event. From the moment Crystal arrived until the moment she left, she went above and beyond, and made the evening a huge success! Crystal was warm and professional, and worked tirelessly to provide us with outstanding service. We were so impressed with this amazing woman, we had to give her a round of applause before she left. Thank you, Epicurean Nutrition, for making our event a HUGE success. We will definitely call you again for our next event. Happy New Year!!

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 had an office holiday gala with over 125 people in attendance and I needed a caterer, so I reached out to thumbtack here to get quotes. Richard was the only one who actually called me to speak more about the needs of the party. This made him stand out above the rest. Besides that, he had great pricing, and was easy to get ahold of throughout the whole process. The night of the event went seamlessly. Our guests loved the food, and his staff rocked the house!! I will most definitely be referring him to other people I know, and use him again in the future for our next event! Thanks Richard! -Keller Williams Capital Properties, Fairfax

Rakita was instrumental in helping my husband pull of the best First Mother's Day a girl could ask for. He surprised me by hiring her to come to our home to cook for us, eliminating the stress of going out to eat somewhere nice with a 6-month-old. Rakita's menu choices were varied and suited to different tastes. My husband had a blue cheese crusted steak that he said easily ranks among the best of his life (and this man loves his steak). I had a lobster and shrimp dish over truffled risotto that was equally flavorful and praise-worthy. We shared a better-than-the-Melting-Pot cheese fondue, well-seasoned spring salads, and tasty strawberry shortcake. Wine and a bouquet of fresh tulips were included in the service, as well as the washing of all dishes used in the preparation of our meal. Rakita was friendly, yet very professional. She eliminated the awkwardness that could be associated with hiring a personal chef, and worked quickly in our kitchen while we relaxed. I especially appreciated this, as we had just come off travel and I was recovering from a less-than-pleasant illness. I'd highly recommend Rakita Lillard as a personal chef. She's a fantastic chef, and from what my husband says, comes in at an incredibly fair price point.

I am so grateful for Javier and Key Ingredients. He was so great to work with, so kind, and very knowledgable. I was a busy Auction Chair that night and knowing that the food table was something I didn't have to even worry about was so amazing. Ronnie was amazing and kept the food buffet stocked and looking nice. The food was just what I wanted and my guests loved the easiness of it. Just grab and go. Thank you Javier!

PHG personnel where very professional and helpful from the get go. Candi, who set up the reservation for us, was understanding and very helpful to meeting our needs. The delivery was punctual. The food was great and everyone at the office party enjoyed the meal with complements that a great caterer was selected and a job well done. I wasn't to thank the PHG team for their service to DC Water and look forward to more opportunities with PHG. God bless PHG and may He grow their company beyond borders in Jesus name, amen.

Chris came over on Father's Day and cooked a wonderful, quiet, intimate date-night dinner for my husband and I. He came over at 6:30 and worked on our first course while we put our children to bed. He was prompt, and warm immediately! When we were finished upstairs, he had our dining room table set for us and served us our snack course- which was AMAZING! The avocado tartare was out of this world. He paced us wonderfully, checked in to see how we were doing, and made us feel like we were in our own little restaurant. The food was delicious!! He left us all of the leftovers and extras and now we have lunch for a couple of days! Honestly, it was the best experience. Having young children, it was the perfect date night without having to pay a babysitter and leave the comfort of our own home. He cleans up and leaves the kitchen spotless. We are already having him back a month for a birthday dinner. Lastly, he followed the next day sending us all of his recipes from the meal we had. It was a great experience and I highly recommend! One more thing - he is so fun to converse with and my husband and I enjoyed his company immensely. Thank you Chris!

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.

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.

Smokers Delight was the perfect vendor for our family reunion. Brian arrived at the event 4 hours ahead of time to prepare the bbq and trimmings. He served the guest in a buffet style line while politely conversing with our guests. The food was AMAZING - well seasoned and well cooked. At the end of the event he cleaned up his food prep and serving areas and wrapped up the uneaten food for us to keep. His food and service was so good it became part of tree entertainment for the night.

Hire them now!! I can not even describe how perfect our experience with Maribel and her team! First off, Maribel and Noel were perfect right from the beginning. When I was planning I was having a hard time hearing back from vendors, but Maribel emailed at a quick pace and even gave me a personalized quote right from the beginning! At the tasting they not only provided an amazing experience with PERFECT food, they also wanted to get to know us better and told us about them. It was like having an amazing lunch with friends. They provided a TON of stuff for free or at the best cost around. We told them our colors and they ran with it. Communication with them was always quick and easy which is a blessing to a bride! Now at the wedding they made the space absolutely beautiful. I didn't tell them anything but colors and they brought so many decorations and made the space better than what I would have imagined and I didn't have to think twice about it! Since getting back we have been talking about our wedding with people and the first thing people talk about was the food. It was INCREDIBLE! Every person I've talked to actually got seconds at our wedding and the kids had a personalized kids meal! They also made sure we were served first and we had the food from the cocktail hour they saved from us, a beautiful salad, and our dinner! They made sure that we got to eat the food we paid for! We ate the left overs the next day and it was just s amazing! The team of server that they had with them were so professional and amazing. We are friends with people in the hotel banquet business, even my husband is a server, and we were all blown away by the staff. We also had a different business do our dessert and was going to charge us a cutting fee, but Maribel and her team cut our pies for free and even served them to our guest without anyone asking! Maribel and Noel are extremely kind people who are professional, excellent, and amazing people. Their team is quick and professional. We even got an email from our venue about how incredible they are! DO yourself a favor and contact them now, and you are ensured a delicious meal from incredible, professional people! Thank you Top of the City!!

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.

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.
