Chef Kev was fantastic! Great food, arrived on time and went above and beyond setting everything up beautifully. He really cared that everything was just right. Also the food was amazing!! I would definitely recommend him to a friend, and use his catering services again in the future.

My family and I hired Chef Serge to prepare a family dinner to celebrate some birthdays and anniversaries. He created menu options from which we chose and was so flexible with our requests. The meal was perfect - after a course of skelwers with tomato and cheese with a spicy sauce, we had a delicious salad with cucumbers, tomatoes, strawberries, mozzarella, basil, etc with mustard dressing. For the entree, he served the most amazing quinoa risotto on a bed of kale with veggies (in some secret sauce that was to die for) and a perfect filet of salmon on top. The meal was probably the best thing that ever has and ever will be served in my house! Also a perk? Not having to clean up after the meal - he does it all! Worth mentioning also is how very genuine, charming, and engaging Chef Serge is. At some point, each of us wandered into the kitchen and chatted with him. He was gracious and didn't seem to mind. We will definitely hire Chef Serge again and I recommend him highly to anyone looking for a private chef experience.

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:)

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!

Honestly I don’t even know where to begin because my whole experience with Sandra was more than amazing. I started talking to Sandra six months before my event to begin coordinating. Throughout my communications with her over the past few months she was responsive, creative, highly organized and helped plan the most perfect dinner for my friend’s bachelorette. She worked with me from start to finish to prepare the most amazing menu. She arrived with her two assistants and they were extremely friendly, organized, professional, efficient and the food was utterly amazing. Our group of 7 girls just couldn’t stop raving about the food! Sandra set up a GORGEOUS table scape and printed the most adorable customized menus. everything was just seamless. I don’t have enough good things to say about this experience. It was absolutely amazing and unforgettable. It was something all of us girls will always cherish. Thank you Sandra for the most beautiful night!!!

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.

Columbia Chef is my go-to catering company. I use them for everything from a 10 person meeting, to a 150 person luncheon or dinner. They are always helpful, prompt and friendly. They respond quickly to requests for information, which helps me make informed decisions about my menu so that I can get on to the other parts of planning the event. Columbia Chef Catering is part of my event planning team.

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.

I don't think I can truly and fully express how blessed Ryan and I were to have had Eleven Courses as our caterer for our wedding day. From the moment we had our tasting, to the finalizing of details, to the actual wedding day, Ryan and I were in great hands. There was NEVER a doubt in our minds that Eleven Courses would let us down. I feel like I could write an entire essay on how amazing Melissa Benson and the rest of the Eleven Courses crew carried themselves throughout this wedding planning process, without mentioning how amazing the food was...because I could totally write an entire essay on that too. To keep things short though, Melissa was just great with following up and answering all of our questions. Catering to our vegetarian guests was a breeze, and making changes to the contract was effortless. Melissa, I am so sad Ryan and I never got the honor of meeting you in person, but if I could, I would give you a HUGE hug right now for everything you did for us. Chrissy was our day of coordinator, which i was personally ecstatic about because she hosted our food tasting, and I absolutely loved working with her. Chrissy, if you are reading this, I am so sad that i did NOT get a chance to hug you that day, because you were just awesome about listening to our needs, and really making sure that Ryan and I got a chance to eat. Not only that, but Ryan and I came back to the venue and found that the room was absolutely spotless. Thank you SO much for taking care of the cleanup. Now on to the food: I can only say one word: incredible. EVERYONE in the wedding commented on how crazy amazing the food was. We barely had any leftovers!! [Which, I was very sad about haha]. Chef Jim, it was such an honor to have met you....your dishes were excellent. And my goodness, can I just also add how incredibly humble Chef Jim is? This is actually turning into an essay, so to sum it all up, Eleven Courses, I am thoroughly impressed with how great you guys were on our special day. If I ever need catering services, I will call you up in a heartbeat. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Lena
