FABULOUS!!!!! Attentive to our needs, read my mind, anticipated what my guests would need and had an incredible personality! I received so many compliments from 65 guests about how phenomenal she was. The food was amazing, the service was amazing and her personality was terrific! I had some ideas in mind, and she was able to use her expertise to customize a menu that was absolutely perfect; it couldn't have been better. She was at my house for 10 hrs, and she stayed the entire time and it didn't impact the price at all. Even on the initial contact Jen was outstanding in understanding our catering needs. Her menu is expansive and not limited to what is posted on her website. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.

Cristo's Kitchen really knocked it out of the park! They came and catering my sister's bridal shower brunch. Chris set up an awesome omelet and waffle station - it was a hit! They had a few obstacles with my venue and needed to use multiple elevators but never complained and still ran everything perfectly on time!! Truly a professional caterer!

We had a house party that was for about 35 guests and we hired Daniel for the catering. It was the best decision we made! The food was amazing, from the hot appetizers to the main courses (chicken, beef) to the variety of desserts- it was all delicious. I couldn't believe how many guests commented about the food and the presentation. And the presentation was certainly unique- he served the entrees in giant martini glasses so that we could stand and mill about while holding food. Fantastic idea. Daniel first came over to our house to check out the layout and kitchen and we went over the menu and how we were going to set everything up. This helped to make sure that everything on the day of the party went smoothly. He had a server (his daughter) and she was such a huge help and worked very hard. Together, they took care of everything related to the food - everything! All the food was fresh and cooked right in the kitchen so we weren't eating reheated food. They not only cooked here and served, but they took care of the clean up and packaged and put away all the extra food for us. They took all the stress away from planning a party and we were left to enjoy ourselves. We had so many people we hadn't seen for years that it was wonderful to just relax and enjoy the conversation and food with them. I can't recommend Daniel highly enough. We would definitely hire him again!

It was truly a wonderful experience providing a different meal each week for 11 weeks. We not only enjoyed variety, but also very tasty, filling meals prepared with great care. Sara sought not just to serve food but to serve a group of adults each week with her culinary delights and her strong desire to meet our catering needs. Deacon Larry Cummins

Overall, it was one of the best catered events I've ever attended and, trust me, there have been many events over the years between graduations, showers, weddings, special birthdays, anniversaries, etc. Right from our first interaction, Cameron made me feel that the success of our event was important to him!! That made all the difference. They were patient with my many questions, professional, honest, personable, and they offered excellent advice. The food, presentation, and service were all superb! I received numerous compliments on the quality of the food, the generous portions and multiple questions regarding the identity of the caterer!! I highly recommend Cameron Culinary Concepts for first rate catering services! I look forward to working with them again. Thank you again, Cameron, and best wishes to both you and your wife.

William Ference Catering was outstanding. William responded promptly to all of my messages and created an excellent menu for our company holiday party that matched exactly what we were looking for. The staff was very professional and made our event feel extra special. The food was delicious and everyone at the party thoroughly enjoyed the meal and passed appetizers. We will definitely go to William Ference Catering again for future events!

Hostess Catering catered for my wedding in August 2015. My guests were very happy with the food and especially dessert. They were extremely flexible and aware of what my budget was. They were key to moving our ceremony indoors from outside. The staff was extremely polite and professional. I would say that they were at times slow to respond to questions as we got closer to the time, but the day of they were definitely spot on.

I used Lori's catering services for a small get together and birthday party for about 30 people. Since I was a novice at party giving, Lori was very good about checking in with me along the way and making suggestions about both the menu and the setup. We had more than enough food which had been a particular worry of mine since I could not picture amounts. The party was for noon on a Sunday and I elected to do sort of a blend between a brunch and a lunch. In particular, the strata, mango salad and berry fruit salad were the most popular and I found that the dressings, sauces and spreads that accompanied the food were what added to the uniqueness of the ham, rolls and other salads. Everything was tasty and fresh. The delivery person was on time and helpful with food placement as it was a buffet style. The dishes were all set to go on platters and we supplied the serving utensils and beverages. I would certainly recommend Lori for whatever occasion you might need these services.

I called Kathy about 2 weeks prior to a pre-wedding event that I was hosting at my home. Kathy was VERY responsive and sent over all the info I needed immediately. I had to make a lot of decisions on my end and Kathy was very patient and helpful as I came back several times with questions on what we could do. She was flexible and completely customized our catering to the size (~25 people) of our event. We asked if we could have scones at the party (it was an American/British wedding) and she delivered beyond what I expected.

I've worked with Benjamin for the last six years using him as a caterer at various events ranging from 200+ person concerts (5-6 per summer) to intimate household dinners. Every time he has been extremely professional in his correspondence and delivery. His food has continually wowed guests and customers alike, and it is obvious he has a talent for tailoring the menu to the occasion. Additionally, he has a knack for pairing wines and cocktails and doing so in an extremely affordable price range. He and his team are truly gems in the culinary/catering world. I can not recommend his services high enough.

I had Brendan bartend at a surprise birthday for my husband. He came to site beforehand, we created signature drinks that he typed up descriptions for and took charge of the party, helping caterers etc. Fun to be with and engages people of all ages and treats them like friends. He got some upcoming jobs with my friends and I could be happier!

Gathered Table catered a wedding in my home of 30 adults and some kids. Mary was wonderful to work with - they accommodated a very short timeline and she was wonderful about the menu and allowing me plenty of time for modifications and changes. She was laid back and relaxed, which helped ease my anxiety. The group was half Brazilian and half American, so they also made both Brazilian and American specialties. The food was awesome! They were extremely reliable and showed up with the right number of staff members to service the crowd well. The only negative was that we asked for leftover food to be left with us since we paid for it, but my guests saw them leaving with a lot of the food they brought in. Perhaps we ate most of the food and didn't really have leftovers, however this was not communicated with me or with my sister, who was communicating directly with them when I was not able to. My only suggestion would be to clarify this upfront. Late night when there were only 10 of us left having fun, we would have loved to dig in for more food!

I chose the Magic Spoon to cater my sons graduation party. Claudine got back to me the same day to plan my party and was very personable. She helped me pick my menu and made great suggestions. The menu was creative & unique yet as simple as you needed it. The cost range I felt was reasonable for the value and quality of the food & service I received. Claudine and her staff were very professional and it was a pleasure doing business with them. I would recommend The Magic Spoon for your next event big or small.

Cindy was very easy to communicate with when arranging for a bar-tender to serve drinks at our 60 person function. The bar-tender she provided was excellent and everything went perfectly - I'd definitely use Catering for You again.
