About

I Could say all in one word... AMAZING..... The experience we had with Chef Daniel as outstanding, we were afraid of hiring someone for this party so we asked him to do a Sampler Dining for us before the party, he came to my house and cook for us the same dishes he offered for the day. Every single dish was Delicious... and from the sampler we had tons of left over. On the day of the party he was here on time, his crew is also Amazing, very friendly, Clean, Nice, helpful etc... Chef Daniel took over my kitchen and cooked for 60 people without interrupting me or my wife asking things from the kitchen, he was able to figure out ever single detail in my kitchen and he left everything in the same way he found. Clean and Organized. All my guests were impressed with the quality and taste of the food and service. I really recommend and will definitely hire him again for any future event. Thanks Chef Daniel and Team. Best Eduardo and Gabriela Muniz

About

Donna and Visnja were amazing! It was my first timing looking for caterers and I had a great experience. I primarily spoke with Donna and she was so bubbly, polite, and professional. She was quick to answer any of my questions and was very accommodating. I had a large family party but did not want to have a formal sit down dinner, so I opted for 3 of their food stations-the boardwalk, the skewer and the salad stations. They set everything up buffet style so my guests could eat at their choosing. I got so many compliments on the food! I was especially pleased to hear that the vegetarians of the group loved having so many tasty options (from the salad station). Next time I need to cater an event I know who to call. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for a caterer!

Chef Marty and his team provided appetizers, main meal, desserts, bar service, linens and dinnerware for our recent Holiday Party_12/6/13. Chef Marty was a delight to work with, he was responsive to our menu requests & updates; the request for a vegan meal was provided without a hitch. Pricing for our Holiday Party was fabulous, as a volunteer organization, we are always looking for the best for our dollars. The best review to offer was the request for business cards from the attendees! The serving staff were friendly and accommodating to last minute requests. I will keep Malone Catering's contact information near by!

Jess made a delicious cake for my grandparents 60th anniversary. It was a huge sheet cake for over 50 people. She made two very different delicious flavors and everybody loved it! I've had the pleasure of both working and socializing with Jess for three years now, and I hold her in the highest regard. She is one of the most loyal, determined, hard working, and creative business woman and chef that I know.

I love Chef Gloria B. I recently had a total knee replacement. When I was released from the hospital I was house bound for two solid weeks while I recovered. For those first two weeks I was pretty much be bed bound and on pain medication. I knew the pain medication would slow down my degistion. All I wanted was healthy, wholesome, home made soup. The soup Chef Gloria B made me was so tastey. It was easy to heat up and easy to digest. It was exactly what I needed. I was impressed with the overall professional service that Chef Gloria B provided but more importantly the love she poured into my meals and the care she put into all of our communications. I felt like my own Mum had cooked for me except better. (I hope my Mum doesn't read this review. lol.) It is with confidence that I highly recommend Chef Gloria B.

I highly recommend Karen. She is a talented chef and has never disappointed me. I have used her for my wedding, a funeral, small work functions, and individual meals and have no complaints. She does well both when asked to cook something specific and at coming up with creative ideas for your event. She is impressively calm in even the most pressured situation.

Gary Mongero worked for us from November of 2014 to October, 2015 as a private chef, doing all of our grocery shopping and most of our cooking for lunches and dinners during the work week. Gary is a very personable, fun, eager to assist, and easy to get along with sort of person. We enjoyed working with him, and often found his suggestions on what foods to prepare, or how to prepare them, to be valuable. His skills in sourcing ingredients are superb: he was very good at finding excellent quality foods at reasonable prices, and kept in close contact with the butchers and fishmongers at our local grocery store, so that he knew what would be coming soon, and what the best current offerings were. He was very reliable at communicating about his work schedule - we were never left wondering where he was or when he’d get here; and he’d be sure to give us plenty of notice when planning absences and vacations. The meals Gary prepared for guests made him nearly legendary among our circles of friends and co-workers. When hearing that Gary would be preparing a meal for them, we consistently got a very happy smile from those in the know. We really like Gary, and are grateful for the year he was with us. We wish him all the best in his future endeavors.

Grace is working with me to provide dinners to my adult sons as a gift to help with their extremely busy professional lives. Grace delivered the first dinners last week and they were a BIG hit! They described the meals as "delicious" and "awesome". Grace worked directly with them to set up delivery and fine tune their eating preferences. If you are looking for a GREAT gift for a hard to shop for family member/friend, try a gift to Goose Eats. Thank you Grace.

Andrew was absolutely amazing. I am 100% satisfied with the experience. I had a lot of specific requests (cooking for a specific diet and portioning everything out) and in the time leading up to the task, he was great at communicating with me and working with me. All the food he cooked was DELICIOUS and he took care of everything. I would 100% recommend him.
